: Okay, so I was exploring the friends of the friends of people who have commented on my stuff, and I happened upon a (supposed) girl named HumanistFluttershy. She has posted a list of requirements to be her friend and its quite extensive. So I thought it would be fun to respond to each thing on the list, giving my standpoint and opinion. Kind of a self-exploration exercise for me.
I made this because I can't stand you. I won't be friends with you. Ever.
I can't stand you, if:
-You think men, straight, and white people are oppressed (however discrimination of these groups does exists)
I dont think any groups in America are truly "oppressed". Just that some think they are more then others do. Or when a case of actual oppression occurs, it's made from a molehill into a mountain.
-You are racist
Nope, I think we're all human.
-You are rabid pro-life (not all pro-lifers btw!) You mean like standing on a street corner with pictures of aborted fetuses and a megaphone telling everyone they're going o hell? Nope, not me!
-You are forced pro-abortion (Im pro-choice btw)
Forced pro-abortion? Are you talking about making me like abortion, or are you talking about compulsory abortions? I'm okay with abortion as long as its not compulsory.
-you think women shouldnt fuck if they didnt want babies
I don't have a problem with women (or men) having sex even if they don't want babies. I just don't want to hear them bitch if it happens.
-you think sex shaming and/or slut shaming is a good thing
Depends on whether their obsession with sex is ruining them or not.
-you claim asexuals are sad people yet, you prefer to be a virgin than a sex addict. (You acephobic prudes are assholes and hypocrites.
) Nope, I myself have never really had a strong sex drive, probably due to my lone wolf nature. And I think guys who determine self-worth based on how much pussy you get are pretty galling.
-you think asexuals are better than homosexuals
-you think gays shouldnt get married/adopt
I don't mind gay marriage, but gay couples adopting children still doesn't sit well with me. It's not something I'll protest if it happens though.
-You are transphobic, homophobic, acephobic, biphobic, panphobic, heterophobic I guess not, since I'm not phobic of any sexual orientation.
-You think that Pansexual = Bisexual Isn't bisexual a part of pansexual (someone who is attracted to all sexual orientations)? Maybe I'm defining it wrong.
-You are a victim blamer
Depends highly on what they're a victim of and the situation. There does come a point when the victim may also be at fault. Example: A woman who keeps getting hurt by men because she's only attracted to assholes.
-You blame single mothers and think that a child without a father would make them miserable
I assume you mean women who have a kid but don't stay with the father. It doens't matter to me, it's what they make of it.
-You think women rights aren't the same as gay rights (they fucking are!)
What rights are you talking about? How exactly are women's rights the same as gay rights?
-You claim cross dressing is wrong and says "women are equal to men!". You are hypocrite for thinking that.
Yes, if women and men are equal, they should be able to wear each others clothes, and use each other's restrooms I suppose.
-You think bodyhair on women are nasty
It is nasty, but I guess it's really only when they have facial hair that I'm talking about.
-You think men should be masculine and women should be feminine
Yeah I do, but I'm not going to berate the ones who aren't.
-You are a female worshipper
-You are a male worshipper
You mean someone with an unhealthy obsession with either or someone who literally bows down and worships them. Either way, can't say I am.
-You think gays, bis, asexuals, trans, non-binary people shouldn't be afraid of bigots and needs to "get over it". (You help them, you cowards!)
Well I think they should stand up to bigots if that's what you mean. And there is a point where some of them get to caught up in their persecution complex that they blame their sexual orientation for everything bad that happens to them. At that point, they need to get over it.
-You tell us "Don't say 'I'm proud to be [insert sexuality here]' because you aren't special." no freaking duh! You have the right to have a pride too!
Can't say I've said that. Maybe what they mean is that if your sexual orientation isn't a big deal, then you shouldn't make a big deal out of it.
-You think the disabled people are lazy
There are some people who milk the system too much. Like someone who has reduced hearing in one ear, yet they have a handicap parking permit, ride around in a powerchair, and collect SSI. And yes, I think those kinds of people are lazy.
-You say medical hurtful things like "go kill yourself" "I hope you die in cancer" "I hope you die while having diabetes"
Never said those. "I hope you die in a fire!" Is one of my personal favs, but I've never said it to someone. I think all humans wish death on other people at some point in their mind even if they don't mean it.
-You are an Atheist who makes fun of people who aren't Christian but who are Pagan, Wiccan, spirit believers, etc
I'll make fun of anyone trying to push some bullshit as reality. Whether it's moon crystal power, or psychic healing, or body Thetans. Atheism deals with any religion involving gods, not just Christianity. And most atheists are also skeptics, which deals with the paranormal or supernatural.
-You blame gays and atheists for everything
Nope, it's all the feminists and abortionists fault. (just kidding obviously)
Equal rights aren't optional or opinions.
: What's your opinion on men using the women's locker room at a gym? Equal rights, right? Whew, halfway done! Let's finish this!
-You think I'm a hipster for liking 90s cartoons and hate most tv shows from disney, cn, and nick
Why, is being a hipster bad? I can think of worst shows on tv then cartoons from the 90s. I grew up with them, But I'm guessing you didn't?
-You are a 90s kid that hates 60s cartoons. (Yes they exists)
I'm a 90's kid but I can't think of too many 60's cartoons I like. I liked Johnny Quest. I was never a fan of Hanna Barbara cartoons, except Scooby Doo. And why is a person's opinion on old cartoons disqualify them being your friend?
-Gets butthurt over when Yogi bear and Bugs bunny getting killed in family guy (for goodness sakes it's a joke!)
I'm not a fan of Seth McFarlane stuff anyway, but I wouldn't be offended by some cartoon characters getting killed.
-You don't mind dumb people say "teen moms shows > [insert good show here]"
You mean like "16 & Pregnant"? Most shows are better then that.
-You're a hippy
I'm not old enough to be a hippy.
-You are a proud redneck
Not a redneck. Does this mean you'd be okay with someone who's a redneck and ashamed of it?
-You are an rabid anti-smoker
I'm more of a rabid anti-drinker. I don't mind people smoking as long as they don't blow it in my face, or get to close to me with their nasty cigarette breath, or smoke in a non-smoking area.
-You think people deserve to get raped for making rape jokes and rape fanfics
I don't think anyone deserves to get raped. But I can see why rape victims may be upset about others trivializing rape or making it into some kind of fetish.
-You think people deserve to be in jail for making baby jokes
I don't think I've ever heard a baby joke, except for may "get in mah belly!". Since we have free speech, people shouldn't be imprisoned for making a joke, ever how tasteless it is.
-You tell non-manly men that they are girly men just because they aren't in your label. Fucktards.
What's a "label", you mean like a clique? And what would be non-manly? Like a really sensitive or skinny guy? Or a gay guy? I wouldn't really call anyone out on that unless they were asking for it. Like one time, I got into an argument with a gay guy (about a non-sexual issue) who had the high pitched lisp voice, and I told him if he's going to talk shit, he should use his big boy voice. Does that count?
-You bitched when a girl who dated an asshole when you told a girl that he likes her.
So if I tell a girl that an asshole likes her she starts to date him, I shouldn't get mad. Well, was she dating me first or did I like her first? Cause I doubt I would tell her that another guy liked her. I why wouldn't it be okay for a guy to get mad if a girl dumped him for an asshole (well sure, they did ask for it by introducing them).
-You are sexist towards women just because you have meet asshole women
One bad apple doesn't ruin them all in this case. But this sounds more like something a woman would do. She dates a couple of bad guys and then decides all men are worthless.
-you are a child worshipper
Nope, pretty sure baby Jesus wasn't the son of God.
-You think women or men who don't want to hold babies are ungreatful or selfish. That issue has never crossed my mind before. So I don't think so.
-You think lacking of race/gender is racist/sexist. I don't think it's possible for someone to lack a race or gender.
-You think you are smart, when you're not. We all act a little pretentious sometimes. Just like you're doing with this list. I think you're being too vague on this one.
-You are overlysensitive (I laugh at them
) Nah, I maybe a little too insensitive sometimes though.
-You claim to be open-minded/are against trolling, but yet, you troll at people who doesn't agree with you I don't think trolling is the word you're looking for. Trolls don't really care about making a point, they just say whatever it takes to piss people off. Being open-minded doesn't mean you except everyone's opinion. If you feel like they're wrong and you can make a good case as to why, then it's okay to criticize them. Just so long as it doesn't become too hateful.
-You are a wolfaboo/animalaboo/weeaboo/wigger I'm not any of these, but I don't think there's anything really wrong with them as long as they don't lead you to be destructive or disrespectful.
-You are an art thief Not me, there's no satisfaction in stealing art.
-You impersonate people (fuck you guys. They didn't deserve it) What exactly is the context here? I don't think its wrong if you're doing it for satirical purposes. Looney tunes impersonated people all the time, so does Robot Chicken.
-You take some trolls so seriously, then you also send me with your new account in notes/pms, you tell them they should have a friendlock, you blame the innocent people, you also call the police on trolls.
(I actually meet these type of people who are like that before.) Wait... What? Say that again. Are you referring to people who switch accounts to escape from trolls and then only give their new account info to friends? Yeah, that is over-reacting and I've seen that a lot. In fact, I was just recently tracking down a guy who had done that. His "secret" new account was painfully easy to find. I'd never do that, most trolls will get bored and go away eventually. Not sure what you mean by blaming the innocent people. And when you say call the police, do you mean the DA admins or the actual police police?
-You think loners/outcasts/unpopular people shouldn't be liked and don't deserve to have friends (Stop being edgy, kthxbye)
Depends on if it's self inflicted or not. I might make fun of some emos or goths for outcasting themselves. But that doesn't mean I wish ill on them. I'm kind of a loner myself and I catch some flak about it. People seem to think that quiet/introverted = angry at everything. It's pretty annoying.
-You think roleplayers are losers or have no life
It depends. Are they 35 and live in their parents basement because they spend 20 hours a day playing D&D (or WoW) instead of trying to get a job or something? Because then, yeah, I would say they are a loser. If we're talking about someone dressing up and going conventions every now and then, then no.
-You make fun of the silliest things eg. when your friends are asexual, didn't had video games in Christmas/birthdays/holidays, they went to trick or treating, make fun of girly men, makes fun of their fears of needles, and so on.
Depends on how far you take it. I might make fun of someone for something silly. But it would not be to the point of being outright malicious.
-You do chain-letters
Like "Send this to ten more people and God will give you a pile of money?" Nope, I hate those.
-You are an attention whore
Actually, I hate drawing attention to myself.
-You support lolicon and shotacon
Don't really support it, but as long as it doesn't involve REAL minors, then I don't think it's really a big deal either. I personally think this inflation fetish thing I see a lot on DA is more disturbing.
If you are one of these lists, then you suck. Don't like me? Then leave. Respect is earned, not given.
: Ouch. I don't think you're going to earn any respect yourself with such a rigid list of what makes people suck. How about "If you checked yes on 10 of these, then you suck." I'm sure everybody checks off on at least one thing. Probably some of your friends do to, you just forgive them, cause they're your friends.
We all get on each others nerves sometimes, we all believe things that someone else may disagree with. That doesn't mean we're all bad people. Do you really want to be someone whose friends have to walk on eggshells around?
Well, thanks for reading. I learned a little bit about myself and you probably learned a lot about me. I'm open for discussion on any of these as long as it stays respectable.
