Are you the type of person who tell people its okay if they have their own opinions, or are you the type of person who always have to drag people on your side to like/dislike everything you do?

For an example, would you be offended if I told you I didn't like "Attack of Titan", because it doesn't suit my interests in general when watching anime? Just because I don't feel like watching it I'm not saying its not a good anime/manga, but I'm just saying; hey, its simply not interesting for me.

So, does only your opinion count in every conversation/discussion?
(Its not about religion, life choices etc., but general interests)

i can accept criticism of my favourite things; i'm open-minded when it comes to criticism.


but i've seen people that you described, i'm not sure why they even read other people's opinion if they get angry about it, like i said to them, go join a forum specifically for that anime/singer/show if you can't handle negative reviews.

For me only my meaning counts.

Its a fact that people often get offended by others meanings, but are you ALWAYS right about everything? Just because you think something is amazing, does it mean that everyone else must think its amazing aswell?


Opinions are entirely subjective, there is no real right or wrong, especially when it comes to things like anime. I think people like that are called fanboys/girls.


This is something that have been really bothering me, because for example I feel I cant talk to anyone about tv shows, music, fashion, anime/manga or anything since I have to watch my back for people who get offended easily.


I would not worry about people like that, it's their problem.



Honestly, for an example, would you be offended if I told you I didn't like "Attack of Titan", because it doesn't suit my interests in general when watching anime, or reading manga? Just because I don't feel like watching it I'm not saying its not a good anime/manga, but I'm just saying; hey, its simply not interesting for me.


No, cause I am not a fan of it either. Even if I was, it would not matter.

The only opinion that I would value, other than my own, would be the opinion of my significant other. The reason for that is because a significant other would be an integral part of who I am. Devaluing that opinion would be like devaluing my own opinion. The rest of the world can fuck off.

Wow, thank you so much for the quick responses! Okay, its a few different meanings here. I understand that YOUR meaning count, and you shouldn't be pushed by others to mean something else.

But my point all in all is that people should be able to say their meanings without rude comments about things they're interested or not interested about. Its another thing to value YOUR meanings, and disrespect others.

People are different, and even when people have the interest in the same thing, it can be totally different experiences. Like I said in my previous post; just because you say you're not interested in something, doesn't mean you're saying anything offensive about it. For example if I told my friend I like a pair of shoes, and she say she wouldn't wear those shoes, doesn't mean she say it wouldn't suit me.

I only really have a problem with this on the internet, but geez do I feel like I have to watch my back I mentioned I liked RWBY once on r/anime and they lost their poop. Thought I might have needed to make a new account. I wish people would just accept that some peoples taste differs from their own I mean just because I don't like something you do doesn't mean I am going to tell you about how terrible it is and that you are stupid for liking it >.<

Edit: Not sure if I can swear.

My meaning count for what I believe in. But I will never force it over on someone that disagree.

Meaning?

I'm not sure what you mean. Care to rephrase?

Does it really matter though?

Some people just get butthurt easily and you can do nothing about it.

I agree with what some others have said that my opinion is really what counts, however the only other opinion I would keep in mind is the opinion of whoever I am dating. That would be the only person who is a part of me. Their views on life and my interests have to mesh well together in order for us to stay together and have a healthy relationship. I always consider my significant others opinion and try to come to an agreement or agree to disagree. Everyone else doesn't matter to me.

Haha... Meanings... You must be referring to peoples opinions.

Well I have an open mind to criticism, but I'm very much against ignorance, people who just say things they think are true without any proof of it being so.. For an example, if you're preaching about how good EverQuest is better than, let's say, Guild Wars, and you're saying that the quality of EverQuest is better... You know this guy hasn't played guild wars, or is just defending something he holds dear to his heart, by neglecting something that is fact, via his opinion. That I hate, that's why we often get drama out of fan wars etc.

Criticism on the other hand is not like this, because it has facts to back up an opinion, or if it's constructive criticism, it's there to give the other person a view into what the person giving the criticism is thinking about something. This is good, because this helps you progress forward, for an example, if you're playing at a concert, this is your first time there and you want to know how the people felt about your performance, how you can improve and such.

Mening (Norwegian) = Opinion (English)
Meaning (English) = Betydning (Norwegian)

He's just confusing the word "mening" with "meaning".

This is the way I think of it.

I'm one of those REALLY, and I mean REALLY fucked up people on the Internet. You know, those lunatics who don't freak out when being questioned or criticized, treat opinions like opinions and not as fact, and can argue responsibly on the Internet? Yeah, I'm one of those crazy fuckers.

Proceed to destroy me with your almighty intellect, oh holy Internet!!

ah... That clarifies things nicely. Thank - you.

Well... My opinion is my opinion after all. It would take fairly persuasive argument or some other eye opening experience to get me to CHANGE an opinion based on a lot of personal history. Less so, if it was a casually made one based on limited knowledge.

Whether or not someone can change MY opinion on a given subject.. Does not have any relevance to my respect for the fact that others can and will have differing opinions. I can agree to disagree.

And I'm certainly NOT one of those people who stays up at the keyboard all night because "someone is wrong on the internet."
