Why didn’t I care?

Most of my adult life I have looked around at most every political and social issue and asked myself, “Why don’t I have a strong opinion on that subject?”

Without going into my life’s background which includes the normal, average, go-to-church every Sunday, midwest experiences, I think it boils down to four general one-liners.

I’m a male – and it doesn’t affect me, not my problem.

I’m a male – and I don’t have to worry about that, let the female do that.

I’m a male – and it would require reading and following directions and all that stuff which I don’t do well.

I’m a male – I have so many more important things to do, like competing, fighting, making money or sitting in front of TV.

Well, somewhere along the line I began to change and began to think.
