Peaches Geldof Dead

More strange than grieving for a stranger?

No the grieving bit is ridiculous. As I stated I have absolutely no time for this and it worries me that young folk seem to be the worst.

The death of Diana was definitely a turning point - and I agree that the grief addiction is a horrible trend for our society.

But why is the choice between grieving or making a joke?

This always strikes me as a bit strange. I am in no way grieving or even care really - but I don't understand folk's desire to make jokes about these things. Why is that in any way a normal or defensible thing to do?

There's a few reasons, I think. There's the competition to be first, the need to look edgy as f**k and the desire to be seen as someone who just doesn't care. The jokes offend me far less than the comments from people who have decided that it has to be a (deliberate or otherwise) drug overdose, especially when they've declared her selfish for it. Rumour has it drugs aren't anything to do with anyway.

There is a huge difference between expressing sadness and actually grieving for someone you don't know and a few people don't seem to be able to spot this. Of course it's sad that a young woman and mother to two very young boys has died. Does that mean I'm grieving? No. I'll go off to work in the morning and discuss it over a cup of tea in the staff room then I'll go about my day the same as I do every other day.

You've encapsulated my view better than I could with this post.

Those aren't the only choices, of course.

Maybe it's that people don't know how to deal with (their own inevitable impending) death, so choose to make light of it? Who knows?

It's in no way normal or defensible - well, it's normal on P & B!

It's just something that happens - it's what people do.

People are strange.

Can't say I knew much about her apart from her family of course, obviously fairly unpopular going by the reaction on here, great admirer of her dad so feel a great deal of sympathy for him .

Celebrity dies: joke away

Footballer dies: OMG RESPECT RIP

I don't care for Peaches Geldof and won't shed a tear but it's sad that two wee kids will grow up without a mother. If only she had been a football fan or managed one of the Home Nations.

It is ofcourse sad the someones died and two young children have lost a mother, but it is in no way first item material on the 6 o'clock news, tbh she will be most remembered by the photos of her dropping her babies pram( with said baby inside) and paying more attention to her phonecall. She was a nonentity to me when she was alive and will continue to be that way
