HEY HIPPIES: STOP PUTTING FLOWERS IN YOUR HAIR
« on: September 26, 2016, 12:35:13 am »
Flowers in the hair.  Often the same people that hug trees and protect nature, DO THIS STUPID SHIT.

Why is that beautiful?  Why is that acceptable for someone who professes a LOVE of nature?

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING.

I mean, the concept is TERRIBLE.

First, you find something beautiful and natural growing out of the ground.  Something so beautiful that it's likely at its peak of beauty and life.

Then you rip it out of its support, killing it, and put the pretty corpse in your hair to use its beauty to enhance your own.

...

You are wearing the slowly decaying corpse of something beautiful that you killed just to steal its beauty for your own.

How about instead you make something beautiful, meant for your hair, and put that in there?  Not only are you not murdering a beautiful plant for selfish reasons, but you can be proud of the beauty the thing in your hair adds because YOU MADE IT.  It's YOURS.  The beauty in it came from YOU to begin with.

I mean, I give a shit about flowers, but INCONSISTENCY hurts my brain.

Or kill me.

I mean really, just decide, do you care more about preserving natural beauty and not killing trees and plants, or do you care more about looking like a stereotype?  You can even have both!  Just stop using REAL flowers.

I mean, not that there aren't a bazillion other inconsistencies we are surrounded by, but this one in particular got me today.  Unfortunately I wasn't in a position to ask the person directly what the logic on that particular affectation was, but I really wish I was.

Flowers in general I never really got.

"Here's a pile of beautiful plants I killed to show how much I love you, please put them in water so you can watch them die more slowly."

Even without the "kill" part.

"Here's a pile of dying flowers, aren't they beautiful?"

You know what would be sweet?

Planting seeds of beautiful flowers, carefully growing them tall and beautiful, and at the peak of their beauty present them, in the pot, to the one you love.  A symbol of time and effort and dedication leading to a beautiful result.

But no, blowing $20 on some dead flowers at a gas station on the way home is so very sweet and caring.  THAT is what love means!
