A Perceptively Distorted Society  

Why do people ignore others whom they previously didn’t ignore? Ignore mean-spirited people is one thing, in fact it is quite an appropriate response. But to ignore people who haven’t disrespected you, who haven’t committed any offenses toward you: is unjust.

Most of my own personal experiences of being abruptly ignored, have come from Females. Coincidently, all of my personal experiences of being told that I was “Offensive” have been from Feminists.

I’ve come to understand that it is not uncommon for some people to take offense when there is none to be given. This comes from the misconception of “Perception is Reality”

“Perception is Reality” is false. The way you personally perceive things may be inaccurate to what the reality of they are. Your personal belief has no bearing on reality, no bearing on truth. This is why I rarely give my personal opinion, instead I give researchable facts.

For example: I once stated that “Joshua Alcorn was a young Male who personally identified himself as Female, and desired to live effeminately.” I never said that this was right or wrong, I never passed judgment on him, or his desire to identify as the opposite sex.

That statement offended many people on Social Media. I was called close-minded, judgmental, transphobic, and hateful.
I lost Facebook friends, had people arguing at me (not with me) all because I stated the facts.

Before stating those words I said that the situation was awful and that I wish the young man had not taken his own life. No offenses were spoken by me, yet many took offense to me referring to the Male as “him, or he”

The reality of that ordeal is that I spoke no ill towards that particular individual, yet others perceived my words to be negative although they were positive. I said that I wish he’d lived to facilitate the change he desired to see in society, he wanted others to accept him living as a female.

Ignoring people seems cowardice. If it’s a person whom you’ve had interaction with, why not just tell them “I do not wish to communicate any further” or “I don’t wanna talk to you”? Why ignore them and leave them thinking “did I do something wrong?” Everything is going well but suddenly the other party is silent.

This goes back to what I was saying about this Generation being Technically advanced, but socially many are recessing (verb)
And I quote: “The more the technology advances, the more communicatively-intertwined they became. Then the more conceded people became”

If you frequently interact Online you may have noticed that most people have become very sensitive. They will Block you for having a different perspective on life than they do. They will Block you for answering a Cynical question which they asked!
An offensive and presumptuous question was asked of me (of which I took offense to) and when I answered the question adding the words “does that count?”

The person who asked took offense, called me a insult, and then Blocked me. We had been communicating cordially for three months: never an argument, never a debate. Coincidently, she was a feminist from out of the country.

I always thought that I was too sensitive, but after interacting on Social Media for a few years I now understand that I am not as sensitive as I thought.
