    She is 57 years old, so she is from a very different generation and she, almost all of the time, doesn't understand me. She calls herself an open-minded person. To me, though... She's a narrow-minded idiot who has less than average tolerance for things she thinks are bad. She...

    I feel nowadays kids are being raised to be

    Before taking responsibly

    for ones actions I believe one must accept and take responsibility for ones thoughts. A little less controllable than actions, and perhaps even more important because of this?

    for my own actions and the person that I am. If I don't apologise for "hurting your feelings" it's because I don't see why I should- especially when you want to argue "in public" and act like a petulant child. Some people need to get over their ego and grow the hell up.
