Why do people have to be so fake? Recently, am being surrounded by many loud mouthed hypocrites and it’s super annoying!
Here is a sample of “annoying hypocrites” that I’ve witnessed in the past few days.
1. A guy talking about gender equality when he himself expects his girlfriend to be under his control. He does’t want her to spend time with her guy friends (who she knows since her childhood). He expects her to take his permission even to go out and spend a day with her girl friends as well. He believes that only men should go out for work while women should stay home and take care of the family.
What?! Aren’t we in the 21st century already?
2. A girl going to another country, and wearing her traditional clothes there and taking snaps saying “Being traditional.. am loving it.. *blush blush*”. But wears all inappropriate clothes, when she is in her motherland.
Urgh! Is culture and tradition a piece of joke??
3. A preacher who justifies that her community and their God is the highest of all! She is a preacher, a person who is supposed to tell the rest of the world that we all are one, we all are humans! But there she is, justifying that people should not pray to other Gods because only their God takes people to heaven!!
Oh dear.., I wish I could tell her, “I don’t know about her God, their God, heaven etc, but I DO know what is humanity”
4. People who use humbleness as a tool for publicity. Awesome! Right? They know that people tend to like those who are humble. So they put on a fake act of humbleness. You may be wondering how that’s possible?! Humbleness is supposed to be sincere and honest… Yes, let me tell you, there are people like that, and I see them everyday.
Aaargh. Am fed up.
The list could go on forever.. But the point is…
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
Wear what you like, but make sure what you wear is appropriate according to the culture of the country you are in.
Practice what you Preach
If you talk about the environment, go green first. Then post updates about “ozone layer depletion, melting of ice in the arctics, etc.”
If you talk about gender and religious equality, practice that first in your own home, with your family. Then talk how much ever you want in the public.
Have you met such people too? Feel free to share you experiences in the comment box below.
