“A word to the wise ain’t necessary, it’s the stupid ones who need advice.”
I posted a rather light FB status update today stating that it really grinds my gears when people try to convince me I’m in the wrong just because I do things differently from them.
A random guy I happen to know piped up with “well, maybe now you understand how annoying those LGBT activists are”.
Unfortunately, I cannot say I was the wiser person here and just let it go. No, I had to start arguing with him and you know what they say about arguing with idiots – they’ll drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
I really don’t know why he still keeps me in his contact list, as it’s not the first time he’s expressed his dissatisfaction regarding my choice of topics. You see, he happens to be a MRA (though I doubt he’s even heard of the term, whining about how white straight males are so oppressed just comes naturally to him).
I, too, have berated people for stuff they have shared on FB, but those were images of tortured animals and dead babies – all in the name of awareness. Mother of god – if you actually need to tell people on your friends list that hurting animals is bad, you might want to find some better friends!
I used to have some rather… uh, strange notions about ‘life, the universe and everything’ once. It really makes me cringe when I read some of the stuff I put down when I was 18 – how could I possibly have been so narrow-minded?! But there you go, at least I grew out of it and am now able to see the bigger picture. Some people never do.
