People get outraged over the dumbest crap. I used to have a bumper sticker that read, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention!” I really meant that, too, but I meant it about violence against women, about how anyone other than a straight, white man is treated in this country; about human trafficking, our environmental destruction, and so many other issues that plague us every day.
