I find it hilarious (not to mention pathetic) that it’s become a cardinal sin to disagree with some people on social networks like Facebook. I don’t mean being awkward or irksome for the sake of it, but genuinely voicing an opinion of your own.
Here’s how it works:-
Friend 1 – Asks a question
Friend 2 – Writes answer, but disagrees with Friend 1
Friend 1 – Has 3 options:
1. Ignore 2. Delete post from view 3. Disagree
Very often option 1 is utilised until late at night when they think no one is looking and bring option 2 into play. Sometimes, option 2 is used with immediate effect, especially if 2 or more friends disagree. But very rarely is option 3 considered. Why is that?
I suppose my real question is this – Why ask a question when you can’t handle a truthful answer?
More likely is that the person asking the question doesn’t actually want an answer, just to make a statement in the form of a question.
It’s a strange state of affairs, disagreeing with others’ opinions and defending our own is surely what makes each one of us an individual in our own right? When did people become such bigots?
And yes, if I put my music out there for people to listen to/judge/enjoy/whatever then I expect people to be honest about it rather than pretend they like it or lie about it. I like it, and that’s all that REALLY matters
