55wordstory - Season 4 - Theme 12 - Hypocrisy

From @vanwynkle: 

Words are like tissue paper. Do you think twice before picking one out, adorning it with mucus, and tossing it in the bin? Conviction shouldn’t be a prerequisite for speech, that’s stupid! There should be divergence between words and belief. Humanity is built on this solemn premise. How else will I run this ruddy nation?!

From @oink1729: 

The dashing young Lord Macaulay tried to have sex with women, men, servants, cattle, stones, anything that would work for him – anything, yet always the same feelings of shame, disgust, and humiliation. Luckily for him, he was able to put these experiences to good use when drafting Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.

From @oink1729: 

His emaciated body now merely a cancer experiment, he had finally met himself, joyfully, “in that field beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing”. He resumed writing, “..he placed his hand on his back and kissed him, gently at first..”, but was interrupted:

“Sir! A priest is here with your wife, they're both very worried!”

From @leztah: 

“Knowledge is our only salvation”, he said, extolling the pursuit of wisdom. “Our bodies will rot, our beauty will fade. But it is our thoughts and ideas that will make us immortal. No beauty in this universe or any other equals that of an enlightened mind.

He swiped left on Tinder because she wore glasses.

From @_ankitachauhan: 

She has no character because she has a friend of another gender.
She was raped because she was drunk.

He was disowned because he forgot to ask whom to love.
He was slapped because he was making love.

Confused me!
As per I know we inherited freedom, or hypocrisy?
Isn’t Forced perception count as illegal?

From runwayrenegade: 

Countless nods, many obliging smiles and a thousand affirmative actions later, the façade was concrete. Truths merged with lies and lines were blurred. Which side was he on? His parents would have been ashamed. It’s a good thing they left. They couldn’t care for him and he couldn’t care less.

    Nervous, she turned her head and smiled at him as warmly as she could muster. The tension between them was palpable. He smiled back as he flipped the switch. Those watching knew this cocktail would change everything.

    As she slipped away, she couldn’t help thinking about how much she wished this night would end.
