i try not to get upset with the comments some of the people leave on facebook, but most of the time i cannot help it. it is not people i hardly know that bother me, but the ones i know well, and love, and am related to. sometimes they brag with their traditionalism, conservativism, even close-mindedness or chauvinism. they seem proud of their problematic beliefs. i want to think that it is about differences of opinion, to which all of us are entitled, but it pains me to hear such things from the people i truly care about. i am afraid that it would affect my feelings for them. it would have been much better had i never had a chance to learn about their worldviews, for ignorance can be blissful, but it still leads nowhere. now i have to learn how to accept that some of 'my' people are not the world's greatest pacifists!
