Common sense isn’t common, and grandma thinks you’re a whore

A few years back, I coined the phrase “Common sense is not common.” I sincerely doubt I was the first to utter said observation of human behaviors, but I can say I was likely the initial individual to plaster the sentence on a t-shirt (as the shirt was not only a custom job on neighborhoodies.com, but I’ve also yet to see another). Regardless of whether the customization and advertising of my opinion were entirely unique, the fact remains I’ve never realized a truer mantra in my life. And as if God Himself had descended from upon high just to validate my assessment and assertion, the very first time I donned said t-shirt, I vividly recall an inebriated gentlemen standing across the bar patio from me where I was having a smoke lean in to his girlfriend’s ear and ask, “If common sense isn’t common, then why do they call it common sense?” Fuck, I really do hate being right all of the time…


“If common sense isn’t common, then why do they call it common sense?”


Common sense isn’t common, and it’s becoming even scarcer as we (d)evolve. Humans don’t have to think (or even really do) for themselves in this day and age where electronics are replacing cognitive thought, and social networking has assumed the role of active socialization. In short, we’re becoming dumber and less self-sufficient, and are embracing the process with open arms. Whatever… I could wax philosophically and biologically about such topics for days, but for the purpose of this article, let’s focus upon the absence of (not-so-)common sense.

I shoot nightlife photography. I have done so intermittently for the past almost 10 years. In that time frame, I have seen and heard everything… literally. And while certain events, mishaps, nudity, drugs, sex, and violence (no wonder a punk rocker like myself enjoys this job) do indeed stand out, the absurdity exhibited by my inebriated “subjects” never ceases to amaze.

And while both men and women are equally ridiculous whilst imbibing, it is the latter of the two, the fairer sex, if you will, to which the following advice/critique is directed.

    If someone wants to posts things like that, let them. Some people cant differ sexy from whroisch so they think liking on tits or balls in public is sexy.

    maybe you should actual hold conversation in real life with women like this instead of complaining all along online. But otherwise, people usually dont say their opinions in real life.

    ”’pool parties, photographing the whorish antics of drunken scantily-clad women.”

    How does wearing a biknini makes you whorisch? or wearing a short skirt? Yeah there are some slutty women, but half -naked men arent unsual either..and wearing a bikini at a pool-party isnt whorisch to me. ”Scantily-clad”…. not every sexy outfit is super skanky. And wearing a scantily-clad outfit once in a month isnt bad either. You complain constantly about how those evil, evil women dare to show off, why? Sure, some of them really show too much and arent sexy but slutty, but why are you complaining?
