This is a great piece, not only on the Jesus fish but in stereotypes in general. Most of us represent something that offends someone else from the get-go. That's why I always enjoy the bumper sticker What is the hocky pocky really is what it's all about? I had lunch with someone yesterday who told me they hated Oklahoma. I said Why? They told me about one unpleasant experience in a gas station in OK forty years ago. And it wasn't even that bad. Now, the whole state is an asshole. My rebuttal was about Aimeé Gramblin. I said, well I know one person in OK and she's amazing. She spent three hours helping me start a publication when I didn't even know her. My friend looked at me funny like "Well, that's only one person." But i could also tell it perplexed her, like her story had some holes in it. Unfortunately, most of us only need one experience to generalize a whole country, city, religion. And, sadly, bumper stickers are identifiers. In scientific studies, you can't just test one rat and say, well, I cured cancer on this rat so I cured cancer. With bumper stickers, you can. And I feel you. That's why I only get bumper stickers with my sons sports teams. Great article. Got me thinking, in case you couldn't tell from the novel I just wrote you. Happy weekend. Drive like you're representing planet earth🥳
