his name is not dante 4real,
but it will be for the purpose of this entry.
sidebar: i don’t know who ^that wolf is.
i don’t know their social media or anything.
random pic off the googler.
so dante is fine,
all your friends LOVE/LUST him,
You cannot stand him.
something he did or said rubbed you the wrong way.
his spirit might not have meshed with yours.
you’ve told your friends that you’re not a fan of his and they don’t agree.
some of them took it personally that you don’t like him.
i wouldn’t care if you didn’t like him,
but i’d be interested as to why.
this isn’t too much about dante tho because it’s more about you.
Do you deserve to be canceled because you don’t like Dante,
but others do?
that is my issue with cancel culture.
in some cases,
there are some folks we cannot get with.
if we genuinely don’t care for someone but others do,
why is that a problem in today’s society?
i don’t cancel folks so easily.
it takes context for me to hit the cancel button.
I’m not canceling anyone over my infatuation over a celebrity or an attentionisto they might not care for.
i truly don’t care.
this is why i love my community because,
with all of my ignorance on certain things/people,
someone(s) is there to help me see things differently.
some of us can be ignorant and need context on certain things,
we are all entitled to an opinion.
you and i may not like other’s opinions,
but that has shit to do with us.
we can’t make everyone agree with us because then folks won’t be genuine or authentic.
some people truly don’t like bey,
and even obama,
and that is perfectly fine.
A straight not liking you because you’re gay is perfectly fine.
sure it is hurtful,
but that sounds like a “them” problem tbh.
they’re missing out on a dope-ass friend and someone who will fight alongside them.
half of their “straight” friends don’t even come to their events or support,
but you’ll always make sure to show up with the pompoms.
They don’t know who you know and what blessings you will acquire in the future.
so who ends up being the loser in this scenario?
certainly not you said me.
even if none of that happens:
It’s perfectly fine that someone doesn’t like you because you are you.
does it really matter?
we might need to examine cancel culture tbh.
it’s starting to become out of control.
