There is behavior that I really can’t stand in some people. if you don’t agree with THEIR perspective of the world or politics, or religion, or WHATEVER, you’re a loser, a stupid sheep, willfully ignorant, et cetera.
Let’s take chemtrails. I’m on this one gorup on FB and this one thread just blew up because not everyone believes in the reality of chemtrails. I am on the fence on this. I read about it to inform myself, but I’m not sure what to really believe. Maybe if they didn’t couch it inextremist conspiracy talk I’d take them more seriously. I say I’m still sceptical and they go freaking ballistic on me, screaming I’m an idiot and a moron. This is a new age forum, where people are supposed to be nice to one another, right?
WRONG. Holy cats, these people are worse than Jehovah’s Witnesses trying to convert you. If you do not agree, they pretty much declare frigging war on you and try to smear you on about any other new age, starseed Pleiadian/Arcturinan what have you forum.
Talk about insecurity, folks. I’m the queen of insecurity, but i don’t go out forcing people to follow my thinking. I’m actually interested in learning opposing or different views because i think it’s helpful.
Yes, there are some subjects where agreeing with a certain perspective is the right thing, like domestic violence, rape prevention and education, fighting transphobia and homophobia and racism. Those are important to support.
We all have different minds and we’re all going to disagree on something or another. Live and let live. If your words don’t hurt anyone, I think you’re fine.
