When I voice my opinion I am neither whining, screaming or crying, just stating the facts. If people think otherwise, that's their problem.
Like I said on another anonymous - people call it whining until they do it themselves. It's a double standard. If you do it, it's a mature name "Freedom of Speech", but when your "enemies" do it, it becomes a childish-leaning insult.
People did that back then when Obama won, and now people are doing it again. And you can be sure it will keep on happening in every election.
So true, Sofia.
I've been noticing for a very long time, that some people consider any concerns or complaints other than their own to be "whining".
It's not just political opinions that I've noticed that happening on or about.
Yes, some (many) surely are. It does get kind of sickening to behold, after awhile. It's even worse to me, when it's people I actually agree with politically, who are shockingly rude or childish.
I couldn't agree more.....
My guess would be confirmation bias. We all do it. If you believe a certain demographic does nothing but whine and complain, you'll be more likely to see their comments as such.
I believe most extremely wealthy people* are greedy bastards who would gladly take all my family's wealth if they could.
What about me?
Of course everyone can express their own opinion if it is done with respect. Just because one person likes and another dislikes neither needs to fight use vile language or deamean the other. They wouldn't face to face so try to remember that next time.
It's not the dissenting opinions that is the problem. It when they make up stories or present themselves as just being ignorant because they won't look at facts. I don't mind a good debate with an intelligent person but stupid people bore me quickly.
