Valentine’s Day, Again.

VD-35

So…I know that I historically lose a few followers every year for my opinions surrounding this stupid-ass “holiday“; and no, nothing’s changed.

I still think it is a pathetic show of disregard for HISTORICAL TRUTH/ACCURACY put forth especially well by my very own country men and women. It continues to be a bad representation on a humanitarian level, the very concept of it is still lacking in scruples, and the fact that so many people take it so seriously is truly disturbing to me.

In any case, because everyone insists on celebrating this warped and poorly evolved “holiday“, even now – after all this time, I say let’s celebrate it the right fucking way, at least.

Saint V was executed by the Pope for refusing to fall in line with notions that he disagreed with on a fundamental level of his own spirituality and individual relationship with God. This man went to a horrible death for what he believed to be that God’s will, in contrast to the over-imposing standard of the Vatican of his era. Modern day human beings are inarguably a shallow lot then, aren’t we? We are certainly shallow and self-absorbed enough to enable and foster the perpetuation of such an all-around bullshit “holiday” on our calendars; shallow enough to desire such a day for ourselves every year; shallow enough to be spending money on sweets and jewelry, eating over-priced candle-lit dinners, and essentially shitting all over the barbaric TRUTH behind the origins of why this date is considered to be historically notable. Such a hideously shameful display it all is; and so disrespectful to the dead guy who gave this “holiday” it’s name…but, that’s just my opinion.

  2. If we need a day to remind us to tell those we love that we do then we truly are a pathetic lot. Never liked this ‘holiday’. Overdone, overblown and unnecessary.

    If you lose followers, then they weren’t really followers, but just curiousity seekers and closet “” people who go to NASCAR praying for multi car crashes and lots of blood” suckers of life and happiness Trolls. Press On, my dear friend. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 👀 ♥ * ͜ * ♥ 👀 ᕙ(💓▿💓)ᕗ

  4. Just another profiteering scam IMO. I’m lucky as Hubs tells me he loves me every day, not just one in 365/6. As for flowers, they come often, and without a reason too. 🙂

    I celebrate Singles Awareness Day. SAD is an excellent opportunity to laugh at all the sappy junk for sale and look forward to the chocolate sales on Feb 15. It’s also a good day to remember that holidays are peak times for domestic abuse and the tradition of sending cards for V-Day started with prison letters.

    wow…you lose followers over that? Possibly a good thing?! Theres my first surprise! And I didn’t know this about Valentines day! I knew about Thanksgiving day, that’s barbaric enough…but not this one, so thankyou :), I will google further. I don’t do Valentines day cos I’m a cynic and won’t be pushed into spending money on something or showing affection on a particular day because the TV tells me too! Hah 🙂
