what do you think of people who...

PUSH their belifes on you? On things like vaccinations, Religon, Politics.

We're entitled to do what we wanna do, but to some that makes us a "sheep". I'm sick and tired of people like this. I'm not saying people on here, but people in general.

  • To me, a sheep is somebody who blindly follows either the "popular opinion", or a certain party line without doing their own research. I honestly don't care what other people do, as long as they are making an educated decision.... But even if they don't, as long as it doesn't affect me, my family, my friends, or anybody's basic rights as a human being, they can do whatever the hell they want to. As for me, I'll make my decisions based on my own research.

  • It only becomes annoying to me when they won't take: Dude, I am glad you are comfortable with it, but it isn't for me as an answer.

  • Me.

    I don't think anything about them.

    No one can "push" anything on me. A person only influences me as much as I choose to allow them to. Therefore, I think nothing of such people.

  • Seen the arguments a gazillion times. BF vs FF, vax vs non-vax, democrat vs republican, Christians vs just about every other denomintation. Some things just aren't worth arguing I'm not going to convince them to change nor do I plan on changinging my mind. I choose to engage. There is a difference between debating and arguing. When it gets to arguing I stop.

  • I don't care how hard somebody tries to push their beliefs on me,it doesn't change my own beliefs as a rule,but sometimes it will make me stop and think a bit.

    Oh,and the word is "sheeple". :)

  • As a non-vaxing Atheist who lives in the bible belt, I find it ridiculous that I have to claim religion as my reason for not administering vaccines to my children... I also find it ridiculous that it is assumed that because I am not a practicing christian, I am "evil", unloving, or immoral... Beliefs get pushed on everyone, from every side. Then you have those with a "persecution complex" who would like to believe that everyone is against them. *sigh*

    But you know what, the world keeps spinning.
