Here we go again... [Jun. 2nd, 2011|05:27 am]

[Current Mood |bitchybitchy]

There are two types of people I really dislike. Firstly, snobs. Secondly, hypocrites. I also dislike bigots, but I dislike hypocritical intolerance even more. The people who sat they are tolerant and accepting of other people's opinion and then turn around and bitch when an opinion differing from theirs is voiced. Ok, I get the fact that you LOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEE vanilla ice cream. But I have just as much right to love chocolate ice cream and to voice this opinion. Especially if I do it in my space and I'm not in your face about it or if it's in the context of a relevant conversation about icecream. Also, people who say :I can do whatever I want in my backyard. It's my backyard after all" and then complain that their neighbors swim in their pool in their backyard because said person doesn't like...hearing splashing water or seeing people in bathing suits from their bedroom window or something. Well, you just said that people can do whatever they want in their backyards didn't you? Or did that apply to just you?

Yes, I'm bitching. But hey, it's my lj, I can bitch in it all I want. No one is forcing anyone else to read this post. (To those on the flist thinking, wtf are you on? -- I'm sorry. As I just said, I'm venting. I will return to my natural, happy-fandom-posting soon).

I also realize that people like described above tend to change on you. Or rather, they don't change, it just takes time to see them for what they are. While you're in agreement with them, while everything is how you want it to be, they're your best friends. As soon as something they are fixated on differs from your outlook on life, your interests, your opinions, what have you, they start treating you like everyone else. Or rather, you suddenly realize what it's like to not be in full agreement with them. It's not fun. I have being disappointed in people. I get attached and I'd like to think that people I have known a while and have been close to for a while, are going to be there stay. I also like to think that our relationship depends on more than one variable and I don't want to feel like I'm walking on glass around them because if I say or do something to piss them off they'll just write me off like some sort of loser or idiot. Because that's fucking not fair. I get strong beliefs and I get fixations. But unless it's something radical like....I would have a hard time being friends with an agressive homopohobe. But these things come out quickly, i would be in conflict with such a person from the start. Honestly, I don't like thinking that me liking chocolate ice cream rather than vanilla would cause an aproar and a possible friendship-ending argument. Or, even more absurdly, that me liking cake and not caring about ice cream much at all would give such an effect. This is a metaphor, but it's not understated. I don't like throwing relationships and friendships away, but I don't like to feel like I CONSTANTLY OWE someone to act a certain way (unless we're talking about common decency). That's not a friendship, guys

And I don't like the type of poeple descrived above. And I can do whatever the heck I want in my backyard as long as it's legal. Thank you very much, damn it. .

As you don't like the above described, you have likely noticed that subtly bigoted hypocrites make up at least a quarter of the population.
Depressing, isn't it?

Heh, yes. People do tend to give themselves special treatment. I think everyone has done it at least once. The difference, of course, is that there are people who try to not be hypocritical and fight the temptation even if they have it and the people who are very comfortable being hypocrites or don't even notice it.

Yea... The hardest is always when you realize you were wrong about someone or that they've changed or that it's just not possible or practical to maintain the friendship.
