Not familiar with Predjudism. Is that a religion? What you should know, e.e. cummings, is how to study up on spellin' and grammar and writin'- jest sayin'. Not being cruel, but us oldsters are REALLY narrow-minded when you youngins waste an education. And tattoos on top of it? Not making a great first impression, I'm afraid.
BTW, there is NO constitutional protection in this country for tat wearers -- I'm afraid
you're not one of the protected classes.
Guess your generation better get working
on that one.
No worries pops, we will. You're a dying breed. Our generation is strong and thriving and together we will change humanity in more fantastic ways than you can possibly imagine. We will stand together, we will make an impact. Our time is now and self expression and art are where our roots are deep. We grew up on individuality. There is nothing wrong with those who choose to be different. The risk takers. The same protocols that this country was even founded upon!! So you can sit on your close minded ass and judge those bold enough to stand up and make a difference. Your life is ending, one miserable, loathing second at a time. And it's high time that you wake up and smell the roses. You no longer dictate anything that our generation wishes to impede upon. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. I believe a Mr E E Cummings said that. Maybe you've heard of him.
