Political correctness

Before There Was Political Correctness For All Of America. There Was Political Correctness For Psychologists

Training for psychologists has always been politically correct and it always hampered the services we delivered.  We are in a world where values are not to be taught and religion should not be practiced.  If there are no longer any role models allowed, what will a Godless state be like?

I was trained to not offend clients by talking about values and religion unless they brought it up.  Also I was not to critique their beliefs or offer other alternatives unless they did.  If I said anything counter to this and offended someone, I was called on the carpet and once lost my job.

Values are to be challenged and religious beliefs ought to be discussed.  We are so politically correct sometimes that we can not say something a person needs to hear!  Who would you like to live next to?  A person with no values and possibly no conscience or a person who has and practices good values?

People do acquire values anyway and if we prevent them from being discussed in school or counseling, what is left?  “Bad Guys” don’t feel bad about promoting their values and acting them out.  Young people find role models somewhere if they don’t have them at home, school, or church, or in a mentoring situation either individual or group.

 

Much Ado About Almost Nothing

Much Ado About Almost Nothing or Save Your Drama for Your Llama!  A Llama is a Drama Queen.

Don't Feed the Drama Llama

I recently purchased a tee shirt with the saying on it saying, “Leave Your Drama To My Llama”  I didn’t know at the time that I was going to go off on a tangent about Llamas.  My first thought (which was not “politically correct“) was of changing the first two letters of “Llama” to “Ob“.  Oops, now I am talking politics and I am not sure what is happening to our freedom of speech in this country so bear with me while I digress; but I have.

The Drama LLama

I knew the shirt was meant for me as it was in my favorite colors, pink and turquoise and it was my size, at my price point (two bucks), and it was the only one.  I have never seen one like it before or since.  It was meant for me I concluded.  I was looking for something to wear to my class on Halloween.  Screwy, right?

Also right after Halloween, I heard about a Llama being kidnapped in France and I saw the Llama on TV.  Llamas usually don’t make the news like that.

Nobody got the pun in my class so I decided to look up a Llama as a symbol and this is what I found

Iceberg Llama

Iceberg Llama

“LlamaEndurance, service, sacrifice. Hard work, responsibility, stubbornness. Llama people tend to be sociable, giving, and easygoing, but fully capable of standing up for themselves if crossed. Llama medicine can teach us to relax and trust in our own abilities to maneuver even the most difficult paths in life,” from Foxloft.com.  Does that fit me?

Because I did the search for Llamas as symbols; I found several memes about Llamas.  I liberally salted these through out this post.  I’ll keep looking as this intrigues me as I had never heard of the “Drama Llama” before.  What do you know about this?  See below.  Just joking?
