I read some comments with articles about transgender people using the public bathrooms of the gender that they identify with. I thought it was a no-brainer - turns out not everyone feels this way. The narrow-mindedness, lack of forethought and general ignorance was mind blowing.

I sometimes go into comments thinking they will all away one way and everyone is really the opposite. It shows just how easily you can think one thing is the obvious answer when it's clearly not (or it might be and you're just the minority).
I try to avoid commenting unless it's just light hearted chatter because the last time I got into an argument it went for days and I ended up so angry. I was called horrific and very personal names. I wasn't even arguing about the topic as such, more so that I felt it inappropriate for her to literally say that parents who don't give their children alternative medicines first are abusive and deserve to have their children removed. I just tried to stand up for the parents she was shaming.
Now, I just write really long replies, get it all out of my system, then delete it instead of posting and move on.

The Andrew Chan and Myuran (Bali drug smugglers) news article comments were sickening. And shockingly it seemed that the majority felt those men deserved to die/got was they deserved. Thinking back on that still angers me today. I remember thinking how much I despised most of the human race after the whole execution thing. Definitely changed my view on the goodness in this world and left me feeling very disappointed and disgusted.

"The Comments" is primarily the reason I took a FB hiatus. I found myself getting way too riled up about people's lack of empathy and general douchebaggery. I'm back on it now but don't follow news links or anything. I steer clear now.

Last article I remember reading that made me angry was the LGBT+ school program that, you know...teaches acceptance and helps students questioning their gender and sexual identity figure out who they are. I don't understand how logically people can compare that to pedophilia??? I find the articles that have to do with trans issues in particular are filled with the most hate...not just ignorance, but outright, unapologetic hate. I can't fathom how anyone can be okay with being that kind of person. It makes me feel like there is so much hatred in the world it drowns out the kindness.

I often find myself avoiding reading comments as they can really bring you down and you lose faith in humanity.
One of the worst things about the internet is that it's given so many awful people a platform to spew their opinions.

I don't read the comments anymore. They make me want to jump through the computer screen and punch people.
