People are So Ignorant, I Swear

I get an email to join spring.me which is….

I don't know what you would call it. People ask questions on any topic and others answer.

I was surfing through the questions and one hit me. I don't know if I am reading it wrong or taking it the wrong way but the question was 

"This is the handwriting of MiniNini (her name is Nina). We can all agree that she's either fucking retarded or has Cerebral Palsy. I haven't laughed at handwriting this much before."

Here is the picture:


My first thought was are you kidding me. 

I wanted to blast this person. BTW, they hid under the user name Anonymous.

The responses  of others were even more ridiculous and made no sense.

At least we know the writer was talking about science.

I had to refrain myself from writing a long response but then reconsidered. People like that really does not get it and I'd be wasting my time.

Instead I answered: 

I don't know who Nina is but what if she does have Cerebral Palsy or mental retarded? It is not funny and you are cruel. It shows how immature you and all the commenters are. And yes, I do have cerebral palsy. Lets just hope and pray no one you love acquires cerebral palsy by an accident.


I read or hear ignorance just about every day and learned to just let it all roll off my back. But there are those, like this, gets to me. I will think about it for the next few days to weeks and get angry all over again and wished I could just meet them face to face and have a long discussion about their ignorance and lack of compassion.  


Surprisingly, no one else responded to that question or my comment.

What have you read or seen that makes you angry and takes you a while to let it go? Am I overreacting?

  1. People are just so mean and thoughtless sometime. Off the top of my head I have not read anything of late like this but I have heard people make unkind comments while people who are different walk by. It makes me angry and sad because I don't get the benefit of saying negative things about people. But mean people I guess feel that they should just chatter away their mean selves.
    I am pretty sure there is a special place in hell for these kinds of people.

    1. Yes, they are mean Pam. They may think it is a joke but they have no comprehension that these are HUMAN BEINGS. I hope and pray they change their thinking to avoid going to a special hell and gain compassion or just respect for another human being.
