    Indeed, considering you ain't neurotypical.

    Isn't that great? Being neurotypical is overrated. It's about time people embrace diversity, especially when it comes to personality psychology.

    That is going to be one of the very last things modern society will accept is the diversity of the mind as much of the world today is conformist and group focused where everyone has to be like someone else rather than being themselves. This world really does serve some types really well while the others slog along and the rest is along for the ride.

    I'm confused, I don't know what to think.. what to expect..
    Clarity, planning ahead? Not so much!

    I know there is some reason behind those events, I just don't know how to deal with not knowing these reasons..

    No, society won't accept the diversity of the mind because certain types are a threat to society, "a type that you really disgust so much", at least useless therefore starting from the cartoons and religious educations, society brainwashes people from a very early age (like almost right after you got out of the womb) to make them a useful member of the society. If they don't function properly to be able to deal with life because of illness, society treats them. Even though homo sapiens are primitive, they at least started to learn to tolerate certain types of people because brainwash of the society really works for majority and bad apples of the society keeps becoming majority thanks to modern society that makes bad apples of the society's life easy so even they can easily survive, so; weak, unhealthy, weird, etc. people changing the definition of "normal person", even people learned to use this diversity for their own gain and it's the last stop of the diversity of the mind. As BS storm of the SJWs continues, people started to "accept" certain types of people, no matter how weird they are, not because people started to embrace them, but just because making these people happy is a good way to earn money — no human will give a fuck about another reason as long as they are a human LOL.

    So. Last night I found out that, contrary to my first impressions, I can't be friends with new 3rd shifter Sean. Because he's a bigot. Two conversations last night just killed any desire at all to have any interactions outside of what is absolutely necessary.

    In shift briefing he and Montrelle (2nd/3rd shift supervisor and a black dude) were talking about racism. Sorta. Montrelle was talking about Key and Peele and their show. And Sean quickly interjected that he didn't watch those kind of shows. Some how they got onto the topic of black face and Montrelle stated that he didn't understand why some people didn't understand that is is not ok to be running about in black face. He said some people are accidentally racist because they just don't know any better and other people are just racist.

    So Sean says that wearing black face is not racist. Montrelle is trying to be diplomatic and says, well... if it's not outright racist, could you agree that it is, at the very least, culturally insensitive and Sean said No. Black people need to stop wearing their hearts on their sleeves, quit being a bunch of cry babies and stop acting like that kinda shit is a big deal when it's not.

    Okey dokey, then.

    Later on, I brought over his laundry to the unit and folded it with him. I mentioned that I had Googled one of the actors on the tv show he was watching because I was trying to find something else he was in and I can never remember the guy's last name. Sean's reply? I don't Google actors.

    Okey dokey. Thanks for sharing.

    I knew where that was going to go as it's something that pops up on my social media from time to time. The whole soldiers should be worshiped, not entertainers! Fuck them! Blah, blah, blah, blah. They come in all manner of different sorts of memes, but the general consensus via these things is that soldiers, particularly the dead ones, deserve more attention than entertainers.

    And I get why they think that way. But... that doesn't make it any less idiotic. And... on top of that, we can make our soldiers worshiped just like entertainers. Monetize them. Put cameras on them (and their families) whilst they're doing their jobs, going shopping, etc, etc, etc. Dig every detail out of their early lives. Stick cameras in their faces opportunity. Give them corporate sponsors. Allow betting on individuals and units. Broadcast all their work, live. Watch them fight and bleed, kill and die. Make sure the producers add drama where there isn't any as well. Just in case.

    People all over the world would watch. And pick their favorites. And bet on them. And cry when they died, because they've made that "personal" connection to them.

    We feel sad or take notice or whatever when a celebrity dies because we've invested in them. We don't take notice about some young man/woman from Podunk, South Carolina died in Afghanistan... not because we don't care, but because we never heard of them before they were dead. We've not invested anything in them. It's hard to be upset about someone you don't know and have never heard of in your life being dead.

    Case in point. A woman in the city was killed in a hit and run accident in the city a couple of days ago. Have you all been mourning her for the past couple of days? Sad that she died? Of course not. Because you didn't even know she was alive in the first place, let alone that she's dead now.

    People are silly.

    Anyway. All that's the say that Sean is a bigot... most likely a supporter of Lord Dampnut, because... bigotry and that support go hand in hand and... yeah. I can't abide by that, so we can't be friends. We're forced to be colleagues and I'm not going to treat him badly or anything. I'm just going to pretend that he doesn't exist. Except when I'm forced to do otherwise.

    I'm a bit annoyed by this because he seemed like a good dude, initially.

    Oh well. It's work peeps, so... whatever.

    Things like this always make me think... but what about us? The us being corrections officers. Everyone always talks about how bad this group or that group have it... but it's never us. Unless you're on a site or a forum of corrections officers, of course. We seem to be the only people that know the struggle. Which... makes sense in a lot of ways, but is no less frustrating.

    I'm not knocking nurses, so don't think that. They do have hard jobs. My niece has been a nurse for about a year and half or so? Somewhere around there, and she's been struggling already with dealing with the emotional aspects of the job. Of being overwhelmed and having to maintain composure to remain professional. Their struggle is real.

    From this article https://armorupnow.org/2018/05/21/pt...onal-officers/ comes this quote;

    Based on the analysis of death certificate data from 21 states that provided information on the occupation of the deceased, it was determined that corrections officers' risk of suicide was 39% higher than that of the rest of all other professions combined.

    Combined. All other professions combined.

    You won't see CBS news put up a story about anyone in corrections, though. Unless they've been caught up in some crime or they've been murdered. The rest of the time, we just don't exist.

    Not a complaint. I'm here willingly. (Or I was, not so much anymore) Just... facts.

    Oy. Gotta run along, 'tis that time already.

    I hate it when the number of thanks is less than the number of posts. Make better posts for more thanks, thanks.

    No earthquake, just heat wave.
