IGNORANCE IS THE KISS OF DEATH
I absolutely hate feeling frustrated. And one of the easiest ways to become frustrated is to read about, experience, or interact in any way with ignorance.
One of the best feelings in the world is to defeat ignorance. When you spend two years being infuriated by Joe Morgan "gotta-have-heart and bunting skills to win" chats, it's bliss to finally hear him say something about how getting on base is important. With all the discussion, data, and writings out there, it's infuriating that a lot of people don't take the time to understand what sabrmetrics is trying to accomplish. You don't have to agree with each conclusion, but don't bash it until you understand it. There's always a better way to do things. I can't stand people who just settle for the same old way, just because.
Speaking of ignorance, why are we fighting the Civil Rights battle in the US for the third time? Women are people, too? Wow, let's treat them like equals. Blacks are people, too? Wow, let's treat them like equals. But those gay people, they're different. They're going to contaminate us "normal" people by getting married.
How can the President and a majority of the people in America support the idea of actively taking away rights of some of its people? And why aren't there more people completely outraged at the idea?
I'm obviously missing something in the anti-gay-marriage argument. At least I hope I am. Because if the whole "we must protect the sanctity of marriage" thing is just PC-speak for "we don't like homosexuality", I quit. So, what am I missing?
Frustrated? You bet I am.
