    And Why?

    An earlier conversation I had with a friend caused me to start contemplating this issue. Why do some humans still insist on rejecting anything different than what they are conditioned to be around? When we walk through the woods, do we only chop down "certain" trees? Do we target...

    Sigh

    As disappointing as being rejected by society is, what can we do? People won't change overnight.

    It's International Women's Day.

    .. If it were a Men's Day, it would be considered hateful. We have such a double standard in our society. Who built the bridges, skyscrapers, the car, airplanes, and all the great inventions used today? Up until the mid 20th century, who was always sent off to die in war? They...

    I really don't have much in common with western

    society and yet just to know that shows I've been dragged along in the debris. Something about it does not feel homey. There are some answers but it does take some digging of my own perceptions and societal expectations. What and WHO do I really want to be. And I'm not speaking...

    The List Is Long

    I disapprove of how society looks at the sexual practices of others as if they are lower class. I disapprove of how society looks at a sexually dressed woman. I disapprove of how USA society looks at nudity on beaches or topless women. I disapprove of how society looks at...

    Coming from outside of this country (USA),

    Does diagnosis or judgement,

    or belief make something a fact? People believe in ADHD. As a difference of and within a spectrum. It is 'treated', to conform or adjust to a norm. To give people a quality of life. People generally believe that it is now more prevalent than many years ago. So they look for the...

    Society based On Lies...

    Why is it that our society is based on a lie? People tell you that they care for you in the virtual world on facebook and myspace, but in reality they don't care one bit. You might have 400 friends on your favorite social network, but when it comes to finding a job, you are stuck...

    All human beings make up society,

    even those in prisons. When you injure the least in society, by action, word even thought, you injure all, because if society accepts the existence of some, even under some restraint, then you must also, or you are not truly a part of that society. It might sound dumb to some...

    What Happened

    It's sad that we just toss people out because we don't agree with their beliefs.. what happened to tolerance? We don't have to agree, we just need to have empathy for others.. But that's just my humble opinion

    I feel like society thinks they are different

    and good for liking "thicker" girls and being supportive but in actuality they are just skinny shaming and saying they like girls with boobs and *** which is typical. It is rare for people to find actual obese people attractive.
