WHAT IS CALLEMONIT?
Callemonit means to Call Them On It.
Someone has created a circumstance that causes you unnecessary anxiety. Hopefully, you can relieve the stress by confronting the situation. Your goal is to make a positive change in your life and possibly the lives of others.
That’s it! That’s Callemonit.
April 18, 1775 was the beginning of The Revolutionary War between Great Britain and the Thirteen American Colonies. The stress of having to pay unnecessary taxes to Great Britain motivated colonists to Callemonit.
December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat in the “colored section” to a white passenger. Her Callemonit became an inspiration in the civil rights movement against racial segregation.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was signed into law by President George Bush. This Callemonit prohibits discrimination based on disability.
On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama becomes the first sitting US president to publicly Callemonit in support for the freedom of LGBT couples to marry.
In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the Me Too Movement as a Callemonit against sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. #MeToo spread virally in October 2017.
These Callemonit decisions will forever inspire people to find the courage to stand up for their rights and those of others.
At times, I might choose to reflect on similar matters of government, race, gender, sexual misconduct, discrimination, etc. But I also want to create stories that cover everyday Callemonit situations that don’t make the headlines, yet still cause unwanted stress.
Topics will include marriage, neighbors, friendship, shopping, flirtation, divorce, mental health, pets, workplace, family, etc.
The list is endless. We are constantly faced with decisions to Callemonit.
GOAL OF MY BLOG
In these fictional stories, I will leave the Callemonit resolution open ended.
My intention is to invite readers to give their opinions of the best Callemonit approach, possibly sharing their own real life experiences.
Hopefully, this commentary will provide a forum for new insight regarding Callemonit situations.
Finally, you might have noticed my avatar is an emoji face with a raised eyebrow.
I chose it as a symbol of the reaction you might have when you come across unnecessary behavior in your life.
The rating you’ll see at the end of every blog post will be from 1-5, with 5 being the most intense kind of Callemonit. Feel free to dispute the rating number.
