People making assumptions.

Why in the world of debate it's either your this or that. Not the other?

Like if I said I like what Obama did I'm called an idiot democrat or if I say I dislike Obama that must mean I am republican. Which I am neither. It's you're either a Donkey or a Elephant, most don't believe you other parties. Same goes with many other issues on here. I don't smoke or drink and I am called a Christian. Which I am not. I am an Atheist. I'm Pro-choice, people have called me baby killer. But I am also anti-abortion Why do so many people take what little info and assume stuff about your life? It gets really tiring defending one's beliefs on here.

  • I think you may have confused the short bus with the honors program. In CM Answers, you're riding the short bus.

  • LMAO Swasson!!!

    I have the very same issue OP. Don't bother explaining stuff to some people on here. You don't have to defend yourself to a bunch of ignorant people.

  • I agree with what you say . People often like to sort others into ' categories ' complete with labels , a kind of black or white mentality , unable to see the greys .

  • Anonymous is just one of those narrow minded people. Hence why she/he posted anonymous.

  • Think what you want PP. But I always post anonymous due to the people I described. I didn't post anonymous for the longest time then all I did was get hate mail being called baby killer so now I always post anonymous on serious issues.

    All those evil people out to get you. Seems you'd have even more reason to sympathize with a fellow anon instead of attacking them for daring to disagree with you. Course, if you've been so maligned and abused, yet you hate anons (who aren't you, only other anons), seems it would've made more sense just to start a new account with a new name rather than be a hypocrite.

    Even funnier that in a post whining about assumptions, you immediately respond by ASSUMING that anon is "one of those narrow minded people". My condolences to you and the other 4 people who apparently need to google the definition of "irony"
