Recently I made a comment about SAO and at the time I was just stating my opinion. But then several replies later someone says I just have bad taste. I didn't say anything back because I didn't want to feed the trolls but I feel like I have valid reasons for saying what I did originally. This just goes to show that some people just want everyone to think like them and if they don't they put down their opinion.

People like security, and they feel secure when they believe something is theirs.
People's opinions are facts: to THEM.

It's a fact that I like skittles. That is my opinion, so it's also a fact about me.

So when people argue over their opinions it's almost as if they're saying: "It's my security you're taking away from me, I don't like feeling uncomfortable."

Also, we have an instinct to protect and help (though people try hard to fight this instinct) and so since someone is comfortable with their opinion in the fact that they like Skittles... they try to push it onto someone else, almost as if to say: "This is my security blanket, I really like it, it'll protect you!" But the other person already has their own 'security blanket' and doesn't need it. But since these 'blankets' are invisible, we're constantly trying to give our 'visible to only us' blankets onto someone else who has a blanket which is 'visible to only them'.

So it's like you're refusing someone's help simply because you don't need it, even though the other person's mentality and instincts are saying you do. :]
