I’m also glad that you don’t care about seeing an aboriginal flag. Presumably now you can stop ranting about how angry it makes you that there was one on an advert.

Yes, you have “no choice any more” but sometimes to be confronted with the reality that people with other cultures and lifestyles exist. I’m sorry you are so triggered by that. Honestly, I think it’s sad that you find it so threatening.

See, your now assuming that the sight of the flag makes me angry… ive done my best to clearly explain why I have the opinion I do however if all you want to do is assume how I feel about a flag and cultures which I have never mentioned either by the way, or even assume that I am threatened by any of this, it’s pointless replying. I’m not triggered, I am clearly and openly expressing my issue of everyone over saturating politically correct points. To be honest I think it’s sad that it’s got to a point where people can’t express their opinions without being labelled as a racist when I am clearly not. But that’s the point isnt it. Everytime someone wants to oppose anything these days, automatically they are. Enjoy your day mate.

Please point to where I’ve called you racist, without referring to your feelings or beliefs that this is what normally happens. You won’t be able to, as I haven’t. You have a great day too.

Your right, I apologise, you didn’t call me racist. However in my defence you did say I was angered, triggered and threatened when confronted by a flag and cultures… I was simply putting two and two together. Seems I miscalculated would like to retract that comment.

All good mate. The funny thing is, all this stuff would probably be fine if it wasn’t all being conducted online. If I saw you in a pub I don’t doubt we’d totally disagree on lots of things but I’d like to think we could do so over a beer and on the fundamental basis that we don’t assume each other to be dickheads. Anyway, let’s leave it there. Have a good day.

Absolutely mate, I’m not one to hold a grudge, There is nothing wrong with healthy discussion… feel like a beer now for some reason… lol

Sorry, but if seeing a TV add, or a indigenous acknowledgement, or gay couple stirs deep emotions in you, that’s the definition of snowflake. It’s beneficial if you can regulate your emotions and not let such things get you going so much.

So because I voice my opinion about being force fed other people’s agendas and want to disagree with it all that makes me a snowflake? However the very thing that is making them want to go out and shove it in my face doesn’t mean they are? I’m really finding it hard to understand your double standards… sympathise with them all you like, but just because I don’t feel the need to do the same and have voiced my opinion that I’m sick of hearing it, doesn’t make me a snowflake. It just means that I’m not a sympathetic sheep. I have my own problems and opinions but they don’t put me in an nrl commercial… why? Because I own my life and I don’t feel the need to blame others for the crap life thats been handed to me, nor do I sit back and ask for sympathy. All I want to do is watch a game of football without it being turned into something bigger. Clearly it’s to much to ask in this day and age.

Being “force fed other people’s agendas” in this case means seeing someone in an advert with a flag. I just can’t comprehend how it makes you feel like you can’t watch a game of football. The football hasn’t changed - why are you so convinced it has? You’re so desperate to say that you “sympathise”, yet you aren’t even capable of shrugging your shoulders and waiting for round one. Why is that? Why does it bother you so much to see a flag?

Where have I ever said that I sympathise? I’ve in fact stated the opposite. I also made no mention that the actual football Was changing… all I’ve made reference to is the fact that the ad jumps on this politically correct bandwagon that many other factors in life do, just to please minorities and make ppl feel all warm and fuzzy about themselves. All I’m saying is that I’m over it. It’s not just this one ad as ppl on here have based their arguments against me on here… it’s everywhere in life now, radio, billboards, tv, schools, magazines… it’s shoved in your face in every avenue possible because it politically correct for companies etc involved to show they care and not want to upset them. My point is I have to shrug my shoulders and wait for round one don’t I? Because I have no choice anymore. I know everyone is sitting back thinking Gez he’s got no tolerance to ppls plights and issues… but the thing is, I did once… I just don’t care anymore purely because it’s been pushed and pushed at every angle that I’m now numb, and it’s now to the point that you can’t even say that you don’t like something without being assumed a borderline racist or bigamist or whatever ppl call each other these days. I don’t care about seeing an aboriginal flag. I actually like the flag more than our own and that’s partly because I have other issues on being part of the commonwealth too but that’s a whole other story… I just don’t think it needed to be singled out in this case… it was just unnecessary. There was a whole game supporting indigenous ppl from a whole range of countries, which is great! Celebrate it! But why do we feel the need to do it every chance we get? Is it out of guilt? I just don’t understand anymore… I guess I’m out of touch.
