the Polish (political) scene

Leroy

With the recent election all having gone wrong (and most of us just waiting for some disaster to happen), the Polish political scene got more colorful thanks to a rapper turned politician, Leroy. Since nothing works better like changing subjects and distracting ppl from more important issues, Leroy’s tattoos became an issue on their own.

The conclusion? Modern so-called journalists will use the most ridiculous things to come up with poor texts and tattoos are still going strong as a tool to make ppl seem less worthy to do good things. Sad but true!

When I came across this ‘Ask Amy’ question, I was both amused and outraged. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand why ppl make such a big deal out of a few square cm of the colored skin on someone else.

Maybe the change has been coming, tho? The Washington Post ran an article about a shift concerning tattoos at work. Sure, it’s been trumpeted before and it was (and probably always will be) countered by articles describing discrimination against tattoos. As always, tho – it’s us, the tattooed ppl, who should do our best to destroy the stereotypes and reach our hands to ppl like the Ask Amy guy to show them that there’s really nothing to be afraid of or be offended by.
