    It's a Mystery to Me

    I've always had trouble understanding people who seem to actually enjoy being cruel. Ann Coulter provides a good public example of this. If you read her writing its just filled with venomous words and put-downs. Yet, she's popular, millions of people actually enjoy reading what...

    I Don'T Understand A Lot Of People Sometimes

    I don't understand people that like rape jokes, or dead baby jokes. There is a difference between saying something shocking and offensive that gets a laugh and just repeating the same dumb "jokes" you read online. If you are the latter leave it to the professional ********, at...

    Being Cruel

    The reason being is maybe is cause they have been targeted in the same way and all they know or have learned is being cruel to people.  There's no love in them. Some it is to be or feel cool or in control. Some, don't have any class.

    I'm Finding It Harder To Understand People's Attitudes

    Everyday (if I venture through my door), I'm surrounded by people who are actively looking to causing problems and grief for others. I try to make my life as simple as possible and help others and be nice to them, I'm really failing to understand this snide attitude. Why do...

    A person |I've been messaging with on here was

    very upset when she was blocked by what she described, "a close friend for a while". She apparently said something in the heat of the moment, and that was it. She has emotional issues, which is what is included on her profile, and from what she told me, wasn't that bad what...

    Don't They Have a Heart?

    I just don't get it at all.  How some poeple just enjoy putting other people down.  I've had it happen to me lots of times.  Baltimore City breeds a lot of negativity.  It was hard living there.  So much cruelty to each other goes on there.  As with...

    Church people. Company employees.

    Locals shopping. Liars. Opportunists. Empathy dies due to those types. Justice is ded or kidnapt. Courts are verbal chess matches. Bought by the wealthy. And staffed by egos. Who judge based on re elected. Not justice.

    It's A Sign Of Weakness

    The main reason people are so cruel to others is because they can't admit they are so pathetically unimportant and worthless to themselves and society. It's obvious to me in those situations that the only way they can feel better is to actively seek prey that is obviously weaker...
