I Disapprove Of How Society Rejects Some People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 877 People

    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 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...

    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.

    Gay Marriage

    I feel like after the whole civil rights movement in the 60's and the freeing of slaves a hundred years before that, there should not be any one group that is discriminated against. However, once again proving that we do not learn from our mistakes we do not see gay rights in the...

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

    So Do I.

    Society rejects a lot of people, including people like me. People who are poor, who are mentally ill, who are homeless, etc. are often looked down on & rejected by those who deem themselves superior. I myself am both boor & mentally ill & have been rejected all of my life...

    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...

    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...

    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
