To be heard

When moderation is surrendered in protest against control or oppression, vulgarity seems like the only reasonable way to be heard.

Rather than focus on the need to be heard, we should consider why our voice may have been lost to the noise around us.

Adding to that noise further erodes rational thought and expression, creating a polarised environment rather than an inclusive and nurturing one.

The more we give in to the need to be heard, the more we lose our voice, and our sense of self.

That’s when vulgarity becomes acceptable to us.

Because in the absence of moderation, vulgarity becomes the only effective expression.

Unless, of course, we’re mindful enough to realise that making a point through vulgarity destroys more than it achieves.

And what it achieves is rarely the good that we hoped to create.

Reclaim your voice.
