So I have had a huge number of hits today possibly wanting my slant on the events over at BB.
This is my view.
Some words aint nice. Some words are directed aimlessly, some to hit a target. Some are said in jest and some by accident. Whether they are nice or not, lets not pass judgement on the written word until we have seen the emotional content that went with it.
My daughter gets called a spastic to hurt her feelings. Some people say to others that they are a b**tard when they have legitimate parents. Some people blatantly use profanity or racism to hurt intentionally. Even worse some people use weaponary to go further in their hate.
The event on BB wasn't in hate or jealousy. Ems was just dancing with two girls and used a word inadvertently and not meant to harm. She wasnt sat in another room and called them behind their backs. She said it there, with them to their faces - having fun. You cannot tar this girl with the celebrity big brother incident which, we all saw, got pretty nasty.
The controversy now is being fuelled by the grip of the pap and press. They will make of it what they will. They are the ones making the big deal of it becuase it sells paper and selling papers makes money. And yes Emily will pay the price, we know that. But so will her family. And I care very deeply about her family and know that the word she used was not something they bat about the house. It was said by a naiive 19 year old girl whilst they were ALL having fun.
I just want to add, whilst I can, this. I say this to everyone who knows me but i will tell you too. If I walked down any high street and gave everyone I met a crips ten pound note. No matter who they were, what they worse, colourof skin or size of their feet. Just anyone who passed me got a tenner. You can bet your bottom dollar that there would be someone who wanted twenty pounds. Somebody who wants a bit more becuase they felt they deserved it. Cos life is like that. You pass them a ticket to have a go or be thankful. Yes or No, Right or Wrong. Life is like that. you can;t please everyone.
Moving on, nothing more to see here :) go and enjoy the erm, cloudy but hot day.
