Best of all is the ppl who take a simple discussion abt general matters to be something personal. Quite perturbing actually.Originally Posted by Leong23
Here I am raising an example to convey points and opinions, and it is taken to be a commentary on parenting skills and discussion shifted to the woes of parenting. Next time use kitten and cat as example, ppl maybe can't identify so easily. Maybe I have failed to be sensitive
This is OT. So if you find your significant others' parents unhygienic, your friend's wedding gown hideous although she is saying it is most beautiful you would tell them? If not, then perhaps it is too idealistic to shout out such statements quickly, since it is a fact that we are also bound by societal norms and expectations.Originally Posted by sfoto100

the fact that people are discussing whether the image is appropriate or not is disturbing..
IMO, it shows the immaturity of some people.. If we are mature enough, we would not see that as depiction of a sex object, but to show the beauty of a human being.. men and women, we are all beautiful, right?
i always see that advert as a nicely designed lingerie for the ladies, and in the back of my mind, "damn, must be expensive.. i can't buy that as a present for my girl.."
and all goes back to my pocket..
It is a common syndrome today that people like to be offended. Salman Rushdie has this passage in Fury where he describes it somewhat as a desire to take a higher moral stand, to stand high above and shoot people down mercilessly.Originally Posted by bayusuputra
When you think about it you can take offense at anything. A dirty toilet, a fly in a canteen, a girl who laughs too loud...
