People that use the word ignorant incorrectly are ignorant about the definition of ignorant. Amirite?

Oh the topics I just pick at random cuz there is way too many and ain't nobody got time for that. They usually don't mean anything on my posts.

Example that inspired this post:

There was a picture of a mother who had children born on 08/08/08, 09/09/09, and 10/10/10- the odds of that are 50 million to 1. Well, there was a comment that said "i'm more impressed that such an ugly woman gave birth to 3 cute kids" and a slew of comments calling that person ignorant followed. Not calling them ignorant because "ugly people can have cute babies," calling them ignorant because "that's mean and you're an ugly person, calling someone ugly makes you ignorant!"

Well, beauty does not have a set definition, therefore, not thinking someone is pretty does not mean you do not know what beauty is.

So basically, the word ignorant means you don't know something, or are factually incorrect about something. So if you use the word ignorant to describe anything besides someone who doesn't have knowledge about something, you're using the word wrong- you don't know what ignorant means, so you're ignorant about what the meaning of the word ignorant means.
