Where There Is No Difference-There Is Only Indifference

Increasingly in today’s society l find myself becoming disheartened by the publics prejudice behaviour that mocks individuals who deviate from our perception of what is normal and acceptable. I witness, on a daily basis, people walk by one another, competitively scrutinizing each other. Women, children, men and boys are all guilty of this judgemental behaviour that occurs most commonly in groups and is responsible for the growing number of people suffering from an inferiority complex in modern day society. I have been, for no valid reason, myself subjected to this form of public ridicule that is rife today and it isn’t a pleasant experience. Girls mocking each others clothes, the older criticizing the young, the ‘hip’ chastising the ‘nerd’. Nobody escapes this rivalry for the very reason we exhibit this behaviour in the first place: because we are all different, unique and this is strength we should all be celebrating not trying to eradicate.

Racism and class prejudice is a taboo subject which, if merely uttered by someone out of context is berated as unacceptable. So why then do we plaster pictures of celebrities in vulnerable states of emotional or physical frailty over pages of glossy magazine to allow others to relish in humiliating. I find it disturbing and highly unsettling. In a mufti racial and cultural society surely we should be working our way towards becoming more accommodating of difference and understanding how broadening our horizons and learning to look past the surface level detail of someone’s initial appearance is food for the soul. It should not be an armour we can put on to deflect out own fears of self-doubt and insecurity. It doesn’t work in theory, if you laugh at someone for their differences, you can be equally subjected to similar humiliation for being different to that person’s idea of normal, so it won’t work in practise.

I genuinely hope that if people read this they will take into account the message I’m trying to communicate to society. We all bear responsibility for this behaviour. We all mock, judge and laugh at others. But to identify a weakness in someone hold it up and openly humiliate them because of our own narrow mindedness only shrinks our little worlds to bear only those who resemble us, and what a boring, fascist kind of life does that entail?
