Everybody with a working set of genitals and more than 2 braincells knows you can’t go banging random slappers without running the risk of unwanted pregnancies, clap or the AIDS. I am already aware of those facts. I do not need some patronising, dungaree-wearing, lezzer-looking munter with a Hitler haircut and a Government non-job to tell me it’s a bit risky.
AIDS awareness? If you play ringpiece-roulette long enough, sooner or later you’re gonna get a double zero.
Knife crime awareness? I’m sure the victims of this menace are more than aware of the dangers of Leeroy waving a Rambo knife in their faces as he demands reparations for colonialism. Those that think mugging and gang war are a rather unsavoury way of earning a living already choose not to carry a knife. No awareness is needed. Those that do carry knives will stick your awareness up your arse, right before they slice you up and take your cash.
Sickle cell anæmia awareness. Why do I need to be aware of a disease I can never suffer from?
Rainbow laces, multi-coloured ribbons, plastic wristbands, scholarships, bursaries, grants, techni-coloured flags, leaflets, ad campaigns, charidees and so on … and on and on.
Aside from the Government cultivating and nurturing a constant climate of fear, guilt and virtue signalling, there are an enormous number of organizations and individuals that benefit financially from this bullshit.
How about a ‘Mind your own business, get your hand off my wallet, your claptrap out of my earshot and go and fuck yourself’ awareness day?
