Too dainty to decry evil was created by miguel
On our neighborhood BBS (Nextdoor.com/Barton Estates) I found this post earlier this month.

Chico Cockrell, Sherwood Forest
BEWARE OF THIS FEMALE WHO HAS GONE AROUND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD STEALING OUR PACKAGES
Hair: DIRTY BLACK
Top: DINGY RED
Bottom: FILTHY BLACK
Shoes: RUNNED OVER
Age: LAZY 20 or 30
Sex: FEMALE
Race: WHITE
Physical Build: OBESE
Other: VERY SORRY!
I have reported this information to the police. (End of post)

Not too flattering a description, but concrete and true—including, I believe, the editorial terminology.

Then I found this response posted by a tidy, respectable couple (judging from the photo that accompanies their user name) who also reside in Barton Estates.

Mike and Susie Lestig, Sherwood Forest
Chico, We all understand that you are angry but that response was inappropriate. We too feel violated but let's be civil. Thank you! (End of post)

Now read my two cents worth.

Mike Whitehead, Lawrence St.
Not a good response, Mike and Susie Lestig of Sherwood Forest. You speak out against a lack of 'prettiness', but we get incensed over wickedness. The problem isn't that we "feel violated"; the problem is wickedness in our midst. I believe it would be far more honorable and admirable of you to show the courage and moral backbone to publicly confront and decry wickedness instead of your dainty display of "tut-tut" sanctimony against "non-prettiness". Civility means "thou shalt not steal", not "thou shalt be pretty and dainty at all times". Chico's response to evil can help stamp it out; yours, on the other hand, serves to do nothing bur promote your own sanctimoniousness. (End of post)

Sometimes, the reason that the wicked prevail is because the good don’t fight. They’re too obsessed with their lipstick and rouge to fight—might break a fingernail, or worse yet, anger an evil doer who will then hurt them. So much easier, safer, to turn one’s indignation against good folks. They are harmless.

And of course you hit the nail RIGHT on the head.

Everything in society today seems to be totally backwards... :unsure:

If it ain't broke, it needs a LOT more fix'n...
