I tend to roll my eyes at the "be yourself, love will find you" answer that tends to come up every now and then. It's not because I think it's untrue or anything. I just think it's missing a few steps/ doesn't paint the whole picture.
Follow your passion, even if your passion is making art/songs/stories that no one will buy. this is a dangerous thing to tell people (kids especially), and it's not kind. They then end up thinking that they'll be just fine living in a crappy apartment with nothing but Ramen to eat thanks to the fact they work at McDonalds...all because they were told to go chase the butterflies. That idea goes along with the "just be yourself" advice too. You're right. They are prevalent because it's easy advice to give, but it's cheap and false.
“The real trouble is that 'kindness' is a quality fatally easy to attribute to ourselves on quite inadequate grounds. Everyone feels benevolent if nothing happens to be annoying him at the moment. Thus a man easily comes to console himself for all his other vices by a conviction that 'his heart's in the right place' and 'he wouldn't hurt a fly,' though in fact he has never made the slightest sacrifice for a fellow creature. We think we are kind when we are only happy: it is not so easy, on the same grounds, to imagine oneself temperate, chaste, or humble.”
"It's okay to be overweight, you're still beautiful. Being fat isn't unhealthy."
Sorry, but for most people being overweight is NOT beautiful and being fat IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE UNHEALTHY. The people who say it isn't are literally retarded. Even if you manage to maintain good cholesterol and don't have a heart attack the strain on your joints alone should be motivation to lose weight.
(I'm not saying it's easy to lose weight or blaming fat people for being fat, but I AM blaming the idiots who go around saying fat is okay in an effort to make everything all butterflies and unicorn shit.)
A long time ago, I remember a question posted by a woman. She was talking about how distressed she was about her boyfriend watching p*rn. Very normal p*rn too, by the way. Nothing illegal or even freaky. She was asking what to do about it because she wanted him to stop.
A woman answered telling her that she should block the websites on HIS computer and block them on HIS smartphone as well, so that he wouldn't be able to access the sites at all.
The most ridiculous crap I've ever seen. I so hope that chick didn't take that advice.
I'm new to GaG, but this one I hear from life: "He just can't handle a strong woman like you."
Yes I agree recently I had a question because I was a little confused on where me and my friend stood and I got he loves you! Like you said not that I don't appreciate what you said It just seems to be missing a few steps
The "He's intimidated by you" comments to girls. Now many girls are assuming they are so good looking that guys are intimidated when they may just not be interested.
The "Best answer" just being a guy agreeing with the QA on something when everyone else says otherswise. You can have a bitter guy making up something like "Why are women such gold diggers" and you can have a ton of answers saying that most women aren't but not before scrolling through a BA saying "I know right!? Women just want money! It's horrible!"(hypothetical example but you know what I mean)
It's OK to be a whore so be proud about it... The usual wording is like "Explore your sexuality and if your future partner has a problem with it then that's HIS problem."
I find that if your future partner has a problem with it then it is your problem, and also it tries to paint a picture of guys having to accept women who aren't virgins even if they don't want to since it is just the only way they make em
Anything that discriminates people for their Gender, Race, Age and anything people can't help being.
I know that weight can be helped in many cases because people can lose weight, but what about if someone had their face burned in an accident? They can't help they are unattractive because their face was burned.
