In a recent conversation, I confessed to ignorance of popular culture. With a little introspection, I realized that I was proud of this ignorance.
I suspect that most of us are proud of ignorance of some form or another. It seems that many liberals are proud of their ignorance of firearms, for example. A person only has so much time to learn and experience, so choices need to be made. I chose to learn woodcraft and primitive survival skills instead of pop music.
I am curious what other Freepers are proud to be ignorant of.
Proudly ignorant of gay sex and the proclivities of its proponents.
rap music, texting lingo, new names for freaky sex and other perversions.
I am proud that I have no idea what the phrase, “tea-bagger” means. I know that it’s disparaging and has something to do with homosexuals, but that is all I want to know.
I would be unable to recognize the identity of any big-name “hip hop” rap star walking down the street.
pop culture, celeb names, celeb lives, perverse sexual terminology and practice to name a few.
That too. I don’t remember the last time I watched a sit com.
I’m proud of my ignorance about how to apply for unemployment, food stamps, and welfare.
Same here...add network TV to the list. I have the Olympics on now and that’s my first time watching NBC in awhile.
Who’s been Oscar-nominated as this year’s best actor/actress.
Concern over other people’s beliefs.
I always say that ignorance is nothing to be proud of, and I admit with some shame that I absorb popular culture trivia like a blotter. That said....
I couldn’t pick any rapper out of a lineup, and I say that proudly.
I’m proudly ignorant of what goes on in Lazamataz’s brain.
I am proudly ignorant of Biker culture. I don’t have anything against bikes or the passion that some have for them, but I had a few friends who were cool one day and became ****heads once they got Harleys. I’m talking life-changing stuff... Drastically altering their looks, Growing Goatees, wearing do-rags, shaving their heads, getting tattoos and body piercings, ignoring their wives, talking about the damn bikes 24/7 and believing that owning a Harley made one grow a couple of athletic supporter sizes if you know what I mean... Maybe it’s just some mid-life crisis thing that I don’t get? I’m 38 and think the whole ‘mid-life’ crisis thing is a farce too.. I’m proudly ignorant of that as well.
I'm proud that I watched probably less than 1 hr total including reruns of "Seinfeld".
I'm proud that I don't have a clue about texting,Ipods,Mp3s,Tivo,etc...
