There exists a religious group that believes driving around to be a source of anger and frustration for many or all involved. They try to combat this by maintaining a cool and calm demeanor while on the road. They drive with manners in an attempt to reduce the amount of bullshit in the world. Sometimes they go off driving when they have no particular place go. Just to chill shit down.This is the exact opposite of what people who put bumper stickers on their cars are doing.
Bumper stickers only exist to reinforce the lie that a personal opinion equals the truth.
All bumper stickers are advertisements, and all advertisements are evil, manipulative magics from a realm of pure darkness that we have no business visiting. If the sticker doesn't directly point to a product or brand, then they are usually advertising the accomplishments and greatness of the car owner.
If you have a bumper sticker that talks about your honor student or really awesome dog, why don't you just get out of your car and masturbate on the windshield of the person behind you when you're at a red light or stop sign, it's pretty much the same thing.
Being at a red light is not the place to start a conversation about abortion or politics or honor students and their merits over non honor students. Being at a red light is a time for driving correctly. Driving is a source of transportation, not a vehicle (get it?) for personal expression.
It's rude to assume that someone who agrees with you will always be behind you. A sticker with a strong opinion is, like all opinions both wrong and polarizing. The opposite wrong opinion will often feel the need to present its counter-arguments, even if this process only plays out inside someone head, it still happens. Even worse, if it only gets to play out in a person's head it has no where to go and has to swill around, getting louder and louder until it ruins at least one stranger's day.
|I'm just trying to go to the store and get a sandwich. Why do you hate me?|
A bumper sticker creates a captive audience for a useless one-way message. Who knows what you'll be subjected to when all you want is to drive to the store, buy a sandwich, be disappointed by it and post on Facebook about the declining quality of the store in general and their sandwiches in particular?
Say, for example, you get to a red light and in front of you is an old Buick with an older person in it sporting a bumper sticker that says "Abortion Kills babies." If you agree with the sticker, you'll give a little "Right on" to yourself. If you don't agree with it, you'll let yourself know. Agree or disagree, abortion has no place in traffic.
So before you go smack down some greenbacks for that shiny new bumper sticker ask yourself this question: "Do I want to transform an already frustrating traffic situation into an opportunity to be pushy to a stranger?" I don't need to tell you that you aren't special enough to force feed stupid shit into other people's heads.
Please, think before you stick a sticker on your car. It's an act that assumes other people are driving around just to look at you and your car. That's fucked up.
