I know this blog has mostly covered topics related to global warming, but the tagline for this blog is “Random Thoughts on This Insane World” for a reason. I’m interested in discussing more than just this one subject. As such, I’d like to make a post about how a woman just said America is full of pedophiles.
A little while ago, I saw this tweet on Twitter:
In a weird twist of fate, Shirley Temple passed away this week. While reading stories about that, I saw several people refer to her as “America’s sweetheart.” Naturally, when I responded to that individual to tell them they were wrong about what the word meant, I pointed out the title given to Shirley Temple. There was a bit of an exchange, and then that individual broke off communication saying:
So apparently the person doesn’t care what the word actually means. To them, it’s “grossly sexist” to call someone a sweetheart because you think they’re kind-hearted, generous and lovable. And if you call Shirley Temple a sweetheart because you liked her spirit, you’re a pedophile.
