If someone were to bake 100 cookies, and poison only a single one, would you eat one? “But they’re not all going to kill you!” Chances are, you are still not gonna eat a cookie.
Don’t eat a cookie: HOW DARE YOU! NOT ALL COOKIES ARE POISONED!
Eat a cookie: WELL IT’S YOUR OWN FAULT! YOU CHOSE TO BE STUPID ENOUGH TO EAT A COOKIE KNOWING THAT SOME OF THEM WERE POISONED!
There is a metaphor in this somewhere I just can’t see it
has a muslim man ever played abraham lincoln
has an aboriginal woman ever played elizabeth I
has a black man ever played george washington
has a turkish woman ever played eleanor of aquitaine
then why the fuck would you get the whitest white men to play Ramesses II and Moses
It bugs me when people are unnecessarily mean. Like, you didn’t have to make that comment. You could have just kept your mouth shut and left that person not feeling bad about themselves. What do you gain from making someone else feel like shit? Nothing of substance. Maybe a fleeting moment of power but that’s gone as soon as it comes so why? There’s enough unhappiness in the world without you adding to it.
