pearls and swine = annoyance!


*hissss* You know what irritates me? When people come to me and try to lecture me about something that I know far more about -- something I have put hours and hours into educating myself about, while they have never done the slightest bit of research. I offer well-reasoned, well-supported arguments and they don't even read them, instead respond by going off on an absolute tangent that had nothing to do with what I said. I seriously need to stop casting pearls before swine. At least I've learned to drop it before they turn and trample me also.



Who the Fuck? by P.J. Harvey

Who the fuck do you think you are
Get out of my hair
Who the fuck do you think you are
Comin' round here
Who the fuck who the fuck
who the fuck do you think you are

Get your comb out of there
Combin' out my hair

I’m not like other girls
You can't straighten my curls
I’m not like other girls
You can't straighten my curls
No!

Who the fuck you tryin' to be
Get your dog away from me!
What the fuck you doing in there
Get your dirty fingers out of my hair

Who who who who
Fuck fuck fuck you

I'm free, you'll see
I'm free, you'll see

Loser by Dolores O'Riordan

I'm sick and tired of people like you
You think you're clever but you haven't a clue
A two watt light bulb is brighter than you
I'm sick and tired of people like you

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear?
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

The moral of the adventure is this
Take me for granted you are taking the piss
I'd rather wind up with nothing at all
Than take a loser like you through it all

Cross the line


heh, I ran out of anger before I finished making this post but I'm making it anyway! If you're snarly today give me a hell yeah. ;-)

This is the EXACT reason why I stopped trying to debate people on-line, about ANYTHING. I think that some people honestly do not read what you write in those situations, either that or I'd just rather believe that than believe they really ARE that dumb!

yeah no kidding!

what happened?
belenen ══╣passionate╠══
just some person, arguing with me about rape (on a mutual friend's post). I don't really even know what he was trying to convince me of -- the only thing that was clear was that he was sexist, racist, and ignorant (at least on this issue).
happystance ══╣amazing ch╠══
oh and about a tough topic also.

It is INCREDIBLY frustrating the way that people react to good natured and well meaning attempts at giving them information. Unfortunately some people aren't ever going to beable to accept knowledge. The hard part is trying to accept that. Good luck moving on to better people and places! I hope that some day, who ever's not listening to reason will be stable and mature enough to understand what you're saying.
belenen ══╣shock╠══
yeah. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and be extremely polite when first arguing with them, because sometimes they turn out to be intelligent and open-minded and we have a great argument that benefits both of us. But then sometimes they turn out to be completely close-minded. :-p

If you're talking about who I think you're talking about, I am really sorry about that. He has a tendency to go off on his own little tidbits, then completely ignores any response. I don't know why I even bothered. I'm considering just taking him off - a lot of his entries are triggering. He has lots of pictures of naked girls and "news stories" about women who "cry rape" that piss me off. I think he tries to be loving and understanding, but he basically sucks at it. I'm sorry if it is he that made you angry - he can be a good guy, but he is too stuck on his antics to really show that much.
belenen ══╣honesty╠══
no need for YOU to apologize! you did nothing wrong! He seems like a royal ass -- the type of guy who thinks that occasionally saying nice things and being 'sweet' makes up for sexism and racism and... whatever else! But you are not at all to blame. I just hope that you didn't take any of his blah-blah to heart!
opheliasxflower ══╣╠══
Yeah. Reminds me of my ex-boyfriend, which probably should be reason enough to delete him...what sucks, though, is that I'm sure he's going to take it personally. I didn't take it to heart, but I did expect a little concern from him, considering I thought I was making it clear that it was the first time I was talking about it. EVER. And he's all, "oh, I don't sweat the small stuff and here, let me unload a bunch of bullshit statistics from an obviously biased website that I found."

I didn't expect sympathy, really. I don't know what I was expecting. But shit, not that.

I really do appreciate you sticking up for me, and telling him what's what. You're an amazing woman, and I am honored to know you. You rule, cuz. :P
belenen ══╣shock╠══
yeah, no kidding! There was so much appalling about his comments I could have gone on for pages. I didn't even comment on the "There's enough Latino and Asian women around for us that have different values." There is so much wrongness there I could not even begin. *shakes head*

aww, thanks! I feel the same way about you! I think you're really amazing ♥

"There's enough Latino and Asian women around for us that have different values."

that's the part that got me. i'm still &%#()@ off about it. ugh....i cant even vocalizewrite what i'm feeling right now. man...

i'd delete him anyway. regardless of whether or not he'll take it personally. he didnt seem to mind his comments (or his posts in his own journal from what you said, for that matter) bothering you. you definitely dont need to see or read that kind of stuff.
opheliasxflower ══╣╠══
Deleted. Hopefully I've done it right and disabled from being able to comment on my public entries too.

*high fives* Unfortunately, there are pompous trolls everywhere -and some of them just lurk in the hopes of finding a place to spew their noise at those by whom they feel threatened (those they feel inferior to).
You don't need that crap! *hugs*
belenen ══╣strong╠══
*high fives back* yeah!
notashamed ══╣[angie] windy hair╠══
well i'm glad you ran out of anger, but i can empathize with you! arrogant close minded people are so terribly frustrating.
belenen ══╣teasing╠══
*giggles* yeah, it was a short run. Just enough to sharpen my Blade of Righteous Anger. ;-p
writer_lilies ══╣Ouch. Hayate deserved that.╠══
You know what they say about arguing on the internet. :P I stopped years ago. Some girl in a community got mad at me over a decision I made with my own body and started debating it with me. I had to write in my user info that I don't argue with people. Especially on the internet.
belenen ══╣shock╠══
crazy stuff! it's amazing how some people feel so okay with behaving badly because of the indirect nature of the internet. :-\

hellz yeah!!! :)

Well, if someone has something that wrong with what sounds like a good argument to you, quite honestly, I would just laugh at it. I hear that you got really angry, because it sounds like you weren't being heard, and that he wasn't taking you seriously.

Truly, people like that? I would just let them sail right over me because they obviously didn't hear that it was important to me, and so they aren't worth me talking to them about something, or that, at least. It just wouldn't be the right kind of conversation to have with them.
belenen ══╣analytical╠══
well, I got irritated but it faded quickly. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and treat them as if they are reasonable and open-minded at first, then if they prove to be less than that, I back out. What bothers me is the fact that other people might see their words and if there is no reply, might believe that those words are correct. I need to learn to let that go and say hey, I can't be responsible for what people might believe. ;-) Just gotta do the best I can and then leave it alone.
demonista ══╣╠══
yeah, i've come across that a lot. the internet is a breeding ground for misogynist idiocy.
belenen ══╣shock╠══
no kidding. or rather, it's a place where misogynist people feel comfortable spouting their sexist beliefs.
