Blanket Statements

“All Muslims are terrorists.”
“Nobody believes that rape is okay.”
“All men are no good lying dogs.”

The only true blanket statement you can make is that blanket statements are always wrong.

Not all Republicans are conservative, not all Democrats are liberal, not all Tea Partiers are racist. Not all men are pigs and not all women are witches.

Generally speaking, people who use blanket statements don’t have the time or mental capacity to dig deeper to the root cause of their frustration/anger and coping with it.

“Intelligence is the ability to make finer distinctions.” It’s time we all got a little more intelligent since we all have more of an opportunity to be heard by others.
