I Disapprove Of How Society Rejects Some People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,265 People

    I want to understand

    why our society destroys our images & points out every flaw and criticizes us, gets into our heads, etc. When really we are perfect. God loves us. God forgives us for our sins. We are his children on Earth. If those are the ones who are hurting us and being the bully, then they...

    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.

    Being different I think a real issue within

    our society is when people judge each other based off there image, religion, race, sexuality or simply because you don't meet standards. I mean people always say it's okay to be different but once a person actually acts different, they act as if it's a crime, but is it a crime...

    Where Is The Openmindedness?

    I have never understood the rejection of certain people if society today, especially in this day in age. It always seems to be the same, Homosexuals, the Disabled, Religious people, but where does it stop? I've always seen people as people, I see them for who they are not what...

    I really do not understand this duality of

    human society. Men, throughout history, have always acted compulsorily in search of conquests, valuing possessions, money, industrial production, trade relations above all other values, the general scenario prevailing over the achievements and individual merits, which are left...

    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...

    I Hate It....

    I hate how society expects people to be perfect. I hate what us women are all aspired to be, how we have to be married/have kids/a career, basically to have it all and if we don't succeed in this then it is almost like we are looked down upon or seen as less of a woman. I hate it...

    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...

    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...

    Does diagnosis or judgement,

    And Why?

    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

    What is 'ugly'? Not having designer clothing?

    Not having your boobs or *** hanging out of your clothing? Maybe not being able to see your ribs or feel your bones in your thighs? Having acne? Not wearing make up? Having braces? Or glasses? Is that what ugly is? Maybe it's just another word 'ugly' is society.

    Gay Marriage
