How come when you express dislike for something that someone else likes

you are automatically branded a "hater?" Why can't we not like the same things without being called names?

  • It depends. If someone says I like mushrooms, and you go on and on about how disgusting they are and how you can never eat them, and how they're fungi and gross in disgusting places, etc etc for 5 minutes what kind of reaction do you expect?

    A simple oh, I don't like that is enough. Dragging it through mud to make SURE the other person knows your true feelings isn't making you look too intelligent yourself.

  • It definitely depends on what it is you hate....do you hate mushrooms or gay people? do you hate fish or minorities? do you hate tailgaiters or jews? See what I'm saying? Tell us what you hate and I'll be able to answer your question better.

  • I think it depends on how you answer or state your disagreement. Of course we're going to disagree on things but just be nice about it or else why answer the question?

  • I think it all depends on how we express our opinions. We're all different with different views on things. I can't stand it when people can't agree to disagree. I don't have to think how you think or anybody else but I'm also not going to shove my views down your throat. That's the biggest problem I've seen on CM, all the drama about who's right and who's wrong. To each their own, express your opinion respectfully and move on.
