and yeah i did have a white person say i was lazy
May 3, 2012
I suppose that means that Chan and Zen Buddhists are lazy, since there is a tradition of anti-rationality in their philosophy.
But tell me this:
Why should I value rationality?
No. Really. Why?
I do value truth. And facts. But neither of these things have to do with rationality or logic.
In my hierarchy of values rationality scores really low. I prefer love, loyalty, truth, sincerity, kindness, compassion, and I’m sure I could think of a lot more things I care much, much more about than I care about being perceived to be rational by white people (especially when, being a femme PoC, I’m incapable of ever meeting this standard).
But, hey, I’m lazy.
Lazy because I care more about people than I care about logical arguments. Because I’m on tumblr to make friends and not get into endless arguments with white people to prove I’m human.
So. Damn. Lazy.
