When people's view on something is based on a problem, that could be solved in a completely different way. For example, people say Scottland should succeed because Scottish MPs can vote in the English parliment but not vice versa (which could be solved with an english parliment) and because English pay high taxes and scottish get high benefits (which could be solved with tax or spending reform).
People who oppose letting other people do X because in their position X would be bad - even if in another position X would be good. Well off women opposing prostitution because they say it exploits poor women, even though poor women would starve without it - they're not good with prostitution but they're better off than they would be without it as an option. When people oppose outsourcing jobs because it exploits the poor in China, despite the fact that the poor literally line up for those sh*tty jobs. However...
I'm also pissed off by people who act like there are no problems with something just because it's better than one alternative. No one should be forced into prostitution or working in sweat shops for a dollar a day. Opposing temporary 'best thing we can do now' solutions like outsourcing because it wouldn't be the best long-term solution is BS, but opposing long term solutions or acting like there isn't a problem just because we've got some stopgap best-thing-for-now solution is equally BS.
When the police inevitably come? Wow, you are judgemental aren't you? Guess what. I have no criminal record.
When people who commit crimes but don't get arrested think they're so much better than those who do the same acts but do. If you read what I said, you'd inevitably go to jail if you tried that approach to problem solving today, as an adult, I wasn't saying you actually would do it now but teaching kids problem solving methods that will land them in jail if they try it as adults seems likely to end up in a bad place.
When people bring up examples that have nothing to do with what they're arguing for. Especially when they're emotional ones shamelessly trying to manipulate the audience or even themselves.
Fighting someone because they don't hold the door open for you is not compatible to self defense when someone is trying to rape you, I shouldn't have to explain that.

Look at the sawdust in your own eye. It's the same reason i occasionally reply to you. Maybe we're both judgemental, maybe it's projection on one of our parts, I don't know or care. It's boring to reply to you at this point, seems like you're arguing for the sake of arguing and if you actually believe violence is justified because someone was mildly impolite I don't want to talk to you for completely different reasons. You can easily foe me so you don't have to read what I post if it offends you so much. Whatever, personal drama is pointless and boring enough offline or with people you actually give a sh*t about why bring it online?

My English class (oh sweet! i can say "Back in MY day") used to be the most imbecile, moronic, hyper active crowd of people ever. one time the teacher literally threw her marker cross the room and stormed out the room, deeming us free for the whole two periods. it pisses me off when people cut me or others off.
them: "did you find the book?"
me: "No, but i we--"
them: "Me and Charlie went to Mumbai last year and it was fun"
me: "--nt to the boo--"
them: "hay! dont cut me off!"
The idea that illegal things (drugs, weapons, books, etc) are just as easy to get as legal things. If it's on a store shelf, it will sell more! It denies facts almost as much as the idea that it's illegal so no one's getting it to say otherwise.
People who say something in a movie is unrealistic when it's happened in real life, especially if they think it's unrealistic because of something that happened in other movies.
The idea we shouldn't have laws against X because in a perfect world we wouldn't need those laws. Example - "we don't need laws regulating junk foods, people should take personal responsibility" - people clearly aren't taking responsibility in the actual world but because they 'should' we can't have laws that work?
When people tell others to take responsibility for stuff that isn't their responsibility - e.g. when people say it's 'frivolous' to sue someone for a faulty product, as if the customer should take responsibility for what they're being sold.
When people deny facts because of potential consequences of those facts - especially "if we accept X, criminals will use it as an excuse." If X is a legitimate excuse ans we're denying it just to punish people as much as we want, we might as well be denying evidence someone is innocent because we want them in jail.
Acting like X (which should cause Y) will actually cause Y, when there is evidence what should happen doesn't always happen, pisses me off. The way we act like accepting an X that should lead to criminals getting less sentences would actually do that, given how often facts that should exonerate people get ignored in practice - which also pisses me off.
When a perfectly reasonable example of X, is twisted by the media into an example of "X gone mad" and used as an argument against X. The woman who spilled hot coffee on herself (when given a defective cup and 300 odd degree coffee) for example.
When people treat members of a group more likely to be X as if they are X - the poor as being criminals not just more likely to be criminals.
When people say X is bad because X = Y, when they also think Z is good, when Z = Y! For example, saying we shouldn't restrict voting based on intelligence (X) because we can't restrict voting (X=Y; Y is bad), but that we can stop people below a certain age from voting (Z) because we need restrictions on it (Z=Y; Y is good). Usually the result of attempts to defend a contradictory status quo.

this. f*cking. tag. look at all of those idiots. The more extreme social justice people are some of the most frustrating people on earth.
What the f*ck..?
Someone saying "No, you're not." when you come out to them pisses me the f*ck off!
Since when did Neil Patrick Harris become everyone's favorite love symbol??
Meh...I'm sorry. I'm just not used to hearing about so many people talking about their sexuality on this forum.
Just more the reason for me to move on and find something I truly enjoy.....and more the reason to get a full-time job...so I don't have all this time on my hands.
i shouldn't look at political statistics for virginia can i move somewhere else please because this state is just...omg
(don't mind me i just had an obnoxious day)
I'm pissed off...at the world it seems lately. I Just don't understand the world and people anymore. I just feel very out of touch and I feel its harder to communicate and express myself with most individuals without hearing "you're dumb! you're stupid! You have no logic!"
Just because I have different feelings doesn't make me the stupid one. People need to learn to OPEN UP and let people be themselves. Not everyone is going to agree with everything, and I wish more people would let others express their opinion without people coming out with "HURR! You're Wrong! You're Just Wrong!"
and THAT is why I'm pissed off tonight. Because nobody it seems will let me explain why I am for or against something and nobody want to HEAR why...because we are all too brainwashed and mind-sided to hear what we only want to hear...and it's a sad sad world.
It's like, maybe I don't want to get drunk for once, maybe I just want some damn candy! They need to have more teenage parties that are focused solely on candy. Instead of shots, we're doing fun sizes in this motha fucka.
Brad would be all like, "Hey man, I'm doing fun sizes with Kelly and Jen! You in?" Hell yeah bitch! Send that sh*t over here!
What a world that would be...
