Why are people so rude? – I swear I ask myself this everyday. Why? Why do people go out of their way to post a mean comment on someones page, or say certain things to people when they are bothered? (Lik the really unneccesary ones- you’re fat, you’re ugly, you get the point). Maybe I was raised differently, but if something does not affect your life in any way – like gay people, black people, or a woman’s abortion – then leave it be. There is no reason to go out of your way to be hurtful to anyone. You don’t know what battle someone is fighting in their personal life. A small, nasty comment you decide to say to someone, could be their last straw – and when they get home they could harm themselves or commit suicide. But you would never know – because their life does not affect you.
