I never read “Alice in Wonderland”, but I‘ve heard enough about it to know she fell through the rabbit hole and her world turned upside down.
In my opinion, that’s what’s happening here. Our world has turned upside down. The world has gone slap- crazy mad.
Watching the news or reading the newspaper is now fodder for my blog.
I’ve always considered myself to be open minded, but this craziness is akin to the dentist telling me to “open wider.” This is as far as my mind can stretch.
I can remember when the use of avatars first came out. I was psyched about this. I thought having a little character represent me was a novel idea. However, I wasn’t techie enough to create my own avatar, so I cooled on that trend.
Actually, not having an avatar represent me hasn’t impacted me in the least. But, avatars are now allowing people to do things they would never do, or at least I hope not, outside of virtual reality.
Let me give you a couple of examples, and this is just from yesterday’s news.
There’s a new virtual world now, and don’t ask me how to get there, but yesterday a woman claimed that her avatar was molested by several other avatars. Really? Did she report it to the avatar police department? I’m sure Lewis Carroll is turning over in his grave. Has he been bested?
Howling at the Moon
The next piece of news, which falls into my “let’s get real” department is the woman who’s now identifying as a wolf. Yes, you read it right…a wolf. Even though she’s two legged, she goes blissfully running through the woods, howling loudly. She’s even designed a wolf outfit, complete with a tail.
I reiterate, the world has gone totally mad. I don’t know how the media anchors report this with a straight face.
I’m all for freedom. But I feel for the wolves. I doubt they’re into inclusion when it comes to two legged adults.
I don’t know what the answer is, but for now, I think I’ll identify as a mole, and go underground until the world turns right-side up.
