OK ladies.... I have a question for you.
Is there such a thing as common decency? If so, what is it?
We all have certain lines we won't cross when we're with people we don't know very well. But when we're with people we know very well those lines get blurred.
I hope this isn't sexist... but in my experiences it's a woman who will be the first to complain that a line has been crossed.
Lately I've been having a conversation with a friend who is a woman. I will be the first to admit that I've done & said some crazy things in front of this woman. Was I trying to be offensive? No. Was I purposely crossing a line? No.
But I am being told that if I had any common decency I never would've "went there" in the first place.
Let me throw in here that by this woman's own admission she did not make it known that she was uncomfortable.
I have to admit... I don't understand this. I am not agreeing or disagreeing... I don't understand.
Is someone crossing a line if they don't know it? Once they know it they should respect their boundaries (which I have done) but I am being told I should've known better in the first place.
Don't we all push our boundaries & say politically incorrect things around close friends? Don't we all push or stay back depending on who we're with? So who is to say what is common decency?
Or am I getting it all wrong? Maybe common decency are the obvious lines that no one crosses.... I don't know.
Let me make something clear here.... I am not judging anyone for having a line. Just because I don't have one doesn't means you shouldn't either. BUT I don't expect to be judged because I don't have one or because my version of common decency is different from someone else's.
So help me out. What's your version of common decency?
