People you can never hope to get along with
Posted 8/10/15


I agree with you , but Its extremism anything thats the problem. There are extremists with any movement, and extremism is ugly. I'd much prefer not to be in another argument about feminism, or religion on an anime forum. I actually thought this post of yours was going to touch off one. Thankfully not. But my point is, it doesn't belong here.

Pretty much 95% of Americans it seems.

The common ones:
Homophobes
Racists
Slackers
Liars

The not so common ones:
Overly-Patriotic (Ask that question is a good bit of the world and they wont even understand the question)
Overly religious
Overly anti-religious
*By this I mean that I hate people who will walk up to an atheist and say your going to hell, and vise versa
People who are blind to change
People who refuse to think of change
People who can't do proper research while spewing beliefs
People who refuse to change
People who can not put their money where their mouth is
*These above are for all the neo-movements, blind to the world and unwilling to see the world

Edit: Wanted to add the following:

People who complain and do nothing to fix it (and no, I do not mean start a riot and raid stores).
People who can easily better their life, but won't
Malign people
People who don't know how to deal with those that out-rank you. Seriously.. Just listen.

I dont' tend to get along with people who are extremely like me in terms of mental health, my mother is more unstable than i am but the same KIND of unstable and she abused the HELL out of me, and I even was nasty to her, and it was an AWFUL 'family relationship' if you can even call such an abomination that.

Extremists make me ill. Either end of the spectrum.

Well I don't think it's WRONG to not have your standards listed out immediately or nearby or even stashed at the first part of your mind, but I can't imagine there's SOME people you don't want to avoid? Or rather, therere people you DO want to avoid, right?

I guess if someone really smells [they could be on my list of avoid] but a person can't be smelly every day so...
If they are interesting enough, i could always lend them a shower or two but i don't think i'd stay long enough to appreciate how interesting they can be.

Bigoted people of any kind. If someone wants to live their life differently than you, then so be it. We don't need to hear about how wrong you think it is or how and why you wouldn't live in such a manner. As long as no one is getting hurt and people are happy, that is what matter to them.


Unless they are Cowboys fans. That's just plain dumb.

I've not read past the first page, but I'm thinking that my response would be, "most of you people".

The only people I truly dislike are those who are morally dissonant and self-righteous. Whatever your value system, I don't mind so long as you're consistent, honest and are not a hypocrite; nobody is perfect and everyone has more to learn. In any case, it's always better and more fruitful to discuss issues with those who disagree with you than those who are already in agreement with your view of things.

The attitude I'm seeing here is completely out of order. There seems to be a consensus that people dislike bigots but are themselves intolerant of opinions that differ from their own, and the people who hold them. To dislike someone because of their opinions and beliefs is reprehensible, especially if the other person was willing to look past those differences. I know that a lot of people would feel that the other person is not doing anything meaningful by overlooking your differences, as you are in the right, but it is vital to realise that you are not in the right from their point of view. If the other person is willing to swallow their pride and offer you their hand in friendship then you are the jerk if you refuse to do the same and accept.

Personal differences are a perfectly valid reason, and if someone has views different from yours and uses underhanded tactics such as outright lies, false statistics, logical fallacies or straw-man arguments to try and convince others then that is a perfectly valid reason to dislike them, but the issue is with the individual and their disingenuousness not their point of view.

I also find an increasing level of confusion over pity and compassion. Feelings of sadness for the misfortunes of others does not make you a good person. I would argue that someone who feels nothing is a better person than one who feels pity but does not act on it and actually help. You cannot blame someone for not noticing the suffering of others, but you can blame someone who notices but then decides to not do anything to help. There is a reason why pity is considered a sin and compassion a virtue and unless you actually help you are not being compassionate.
