Will you be able to sleep comfortably at night knowing someone loves something you hate?!
Posted 1/11/14
Hmm, I'm guilty of doing that... I always say things like, "How can anybody rate this anime 5 stars?" or "How can people get entertained by football?".
For me, those questions are rhetorical, in other words, they're statements to say how awful something is.


I can sleep at night though... (the only reasons i can't sleep at night would be bed is too hard or i have a flu). If people hate what I like, I don't really care, but i find the majority's taste in things annoying because they always demand the same things over and over; like I'm tired of seeing loli characters and shallow characters in anime. I get annoyed by not having enough anime that has... diversity or creativity. But I can sleep at night...

Like if one anime is successful, a billion other companies will start making an anime with the same recipe, although slightly different. I find that absolutely stupid. But I understand that they need to make money... but sometimes I feel like they're sacrificing their art to make money...

Art should be about expressing honest and truthful emotions, not using a recipe to please others.





I've clearly gone off-topic, and enjoying talking to myself too much

I don't ever really mind when someone likes something that I don't like or when they dislike something that I do like. Just so long as they don't make a point of it or bring it up to often! I'm an atheist (and proud of it!) and my 2 best friends are Jehovahs Witnesses. Tolerance and understanding will get you a long way in life. Lol one of the girls I'm seeing now actually cried when she asked me if I believed in God and I said no. Cried! I had to explain to her that there's good and bad in every race, religion and country. People will be people and the fact that I don't believe in God doesn't mean that I'm going to start not getting the doors for people or that I kill and eat unborn puppies. Now it's always something that we both laugh at and are like "Remember that time..."

She cried? I'm not sure whether to laugh or feel sorry for her.

Hey, I'm able to sleep comfortably at night knowing that people hate ME directly. So, I wouldn't lose sleep over them hating my hobbies.

I can sleep through anything. If they like the same stuff as me, they're pretty cool. If they hate the things that I like, they're wrong in my eyes.

This happened to me recently, and it was such a waste of time. Now I know never to do that again.

I don't believe that.
I think people will watch what they can get.
A few years ago there was a half hour static episode and thousands of people watched it instead of changing the channel.
It was on the news.

^ Makes sense.

If someone hates/disrespects something i like, it upsets me. If someone just doesn't care about it, it's no problem. I'll find those who do like it!
