Opinions Stamp by Dragon77123 Opinions Stamp by Dragon77123
The greatest civilizations were those whose people traded, conversing with people from far away, sharing foreign ideas, increasing knowledge/education, and inspiring new technologies.

But in today's society, there's a dividing, unwritten law to keep your opinions to yourself.

People need to stop guarding their feelings and pride so closely and be willing to listen.

Someone with radically different ideas from yours may not be as crazy as you think. And if they're trying to share their ideas, that's not the same thing as shoving them down your throat.

Everybody has the right to express what they believe to be absolutely true. In turn, they should listen to other's ideas in their journey to find the Truth.

Be a little opened minded, for your sake, and for the sake of the community and common good.

Yes, obnoxiously putting forth an idea is not the best way to go about it.

But just because an idea turns you off, doesn't mean it's not worth discussing level-headedly.

People need to stop being so sensitive.

You might think you already know every side of an opposing idea, thus refusing to hear any more.

But you could be wrong.

Listen, and maybe you'll hear something you've never heard before.

What was once called discussion or debate is now called "shoving opinions down each other's throat."

Doesn't anyone else find that sad and frustrating?

I'll not keep to myself what I know is True.

people who bash other people just because they like 4kids

Tbh I don't get 4Kids, they really should've steered clear of anime (especially One Piece). But whatever. :shrug: if you like it, I'm chill. Never liked it, really.

There's a guy on YouTube who constantly bashes people for disliking 4Kids.

Hey the far left liberals do this to conservatives like me simply for have a different opinion so you can't blame me for being cautious when befriending or coming across liberals. This kind of thing happens a lot not jus in DA but in politics like I said. The left preaches tolerance but all I've seen from them is INTOLERANCE so that makes them nothing but liars and hypocrites and I will never vote for or support a liberal ever again because of the shit they pull.

Gosh, I find it so annoying when people do this to me. It seems like they can't understand anything but the stuff they agree with...

If I say that I don't hate people for their beliefs, I mean it! :|

Thank you. Thank you for making this stamp. Some people need to grow up.

That's true, but if it's something really offensive like "ALL BLACKS/GAYS/CHRISTIANS/WHATEVER SHOULD DIE!!!!111" people should keep it to themselves because that could seriously hurt someone.

Ahhh, I like this stamp. Quite a bit. :clap: There really is quite a difference. Really, I think that anyone should be able to speak their mind and not have to worry about being told that they're being hateful or idiotic, as long as they keep it respectful ^^

Amen brother!
Yes it is frustrating. So frustrating. It is almost like the smarter society gets [or should I say more handicapped by technology] the dumber we are as a whole.

But common sense is not so common. Nor is the ability to have a civilized debate or intelligent discussions.

And disagreeing with someone isn't attacking them either.
And debating isn't fighting/arguing.

As stated before in shiney4ever's comment, people don't know the difference. I'm one of those people who voice my opinion and then are considered a 'flame war' later on.

I actually got into a pretty big argument about Pit Bulls. I personally believe that they don't make good pets. As a child (I brought up this reason), I got bit by one. He was very well trained and loving. The owners took great care of him and loved him a lot. It's just their nature, not the way they're trained.

What I got back from the artist: Stop trying to start a flame war here, we don't want one.

She then later explained why it was the trainers fault, not the dog.

Sometimes I can't believe people these days *facepalm*

People tend to forget the difference nowadays.
