Ok. So far, in 24 hours I have encouraged the sympathy of two people on this board. Why do they feel sorry for me!? Why, you ask!? Not because some disasterous malady has befallen me, but because I don’t share their opinion.
I got one person feeling sorry for me because I dont like pets. “Oh, how bad it must be to live in a world where you are not free to love little animals as pets. Your life must be incomplete and full of woe!” Uh. No. not really. I just dont like pets. I dont like other people’s pets and I wouldn’t even consider owing an animal for my own personal pleasure. Does that make my life a waste? I guess so.
I got another person feeling sorry for me because I cant consider children beautiful w/o considering what a horrid society the child will be raised in. A society where beauty reins and ugliness is shunned. “Oh, your life must be horrid because you have to analize society when people call a child beautiful.” sigh It just makes me sad that everyone feels compelled to comment on outward appearance, even when something is so young and undeveloped.
Why does everone feel sorry for me just because I dont agree with them. No my life is not fucking incomplete, it is just different from yours! I dont choose to view things as beautiful simply based on outward appearance. I dont choose to domesticate and keep an animal. Jeeze. Don’t feel sorry for me because you dont consider me as “enlightened” as you or as “fulfilled” as you. I dont want your pity, I only want to understand your view. Pity is only condescending.
