What qualities about a person makes you look down on them?
I think the primary thing people who lack education or skills and take pride in it. They are so cringe-inducing and they are almost always loud for some reason. What about you?
Control freaks...the greatest threat to human survival.
I look down on Republicans and Fundies. A lot of stupid people fit into both of those categories.
Wealthy and/or gay Republicans
conservatism, lack of objectivity, holding double standards, racial obsessions, sexual prudery, fundamentalism, hipsterism, xenophilia.
People who place value on appearances, status, and who want to be recognized for the labels they display and marketing they've been manipulated by are plain, heartless trash without character and soul. As soon as I see this poor quality in a person I feel a need to inflict ridicule.
Talking evil shit about other people, the ones they call their "friends". You know as far as they go, when you go, you're next.
Lack of compassion and empathy.
Being poor. It is the only real social issue you have the power to fix.
People whose parents (or grandparents, etc.) have given them a free ride in life and look down on everyone else.
Willful ignorance. People who just "believe" something in spite of evidence and even when you show them they are wrong they simply don't care and refuse to change their opinion. It's just a type of proud irrational behavior I can't deal with.
Laziness and a sense of entitlement.
People who flaunt their wealth and look down on the poor.
People who look down on others less fortunate than themselves.
most of the above
I'm with you R14. People like that are exasperating.
What R6 said. And people who can't think for themselves.
Oh for fucks sake
Xenophilia, r6? Not xenophobia?
Bullies. I consider myself very empathetic and compassionate so I don't get why some people intentionally hurt others.
Intentional cruelty. If someone is capable of intentional cruelty it indicates a lack of empathy. Proto-psychopaths. Never stick your dick in crazy.
Wanton stupidity. A lack of education is one thing, despising education in others is a choice. Who would choose to be stupid? Never stick your dick in crazy.
Arrogant selfishness. Going through life with a selfish disregard for others is the mark of a sociopath. Never stick your dick in crazy.
People who make the same point over and over again... wait, what?
I am a teacher at an elementary school and am astounded by all of the Republicans- don't they understand that the teacher bashing so in vogue now was basically started by Republican leaders who want to keep raising standards while cutting funding for schools and programs that help students?
People who act like they have never made a mistake in their life. Or is just lucky me who keeps meeting them? I am talking about people in their 30s and up, not college kids.
The grammar policemen who will invalidate your entire post if there is one typo.
I look down on people who are on their knees. I like to watch them suck on my dick.
I don't look down on anyone. Because I don't like it when people look down on me, say for being gay.
It's the least I can do, to treat others like I want to be treated.
This is what is wrong with the USA. We treat each other like shit.
I have little respect for hypocrites, and even less for those who are aware of their own double standards and hypocrisy but refuse to change.
People who act like they are too cool
R32, technology and the media are making this a bigger problem. Bad behaviour and the reporting of it is out of control.
Anyone who lists "the bible" as their favorite book on Facebook.
[quote]Xenophilia, [R6]? Not xenophobia?
Absolutely. Although xenophobia is a problem too, it's at least somewhat understandable. People are naturally aprehensive about the foreign and unfamiliar. But people who have learned to reflexively hate the familiar, the us, the self... I've learned from personal experience, they are some nasty people with a warped outlook. And they are the most convinced of how enlightened they are, taking it as a point of pride when they snottily trash their own, whether it be nation, town, culture, race, family, or class.
R32, I love you!
Everyone should go back and read R32's post.
Quite possibly, the wisest thing ever written on Datalounge.
For Christ's sake, stop with this shit. Stop worrying about other people.
If you're making a catalog of what you hate about other people....well, it's about your misery, not someone else's. Believe me, they aren't giving a damn about you and no matter how many lists you make, never will.
R27 sums up my list nicely.
Racist attitudes. Gay and straight men who hate women.
Hypocrisy. Biting the hand that feeds you. Self-delusion.
Anyone who uses the word "namaste" unironically
Hypcrites, mind game players, posers, and bullies. Pretty much everybody who tries to hide his insecurities behind a facade of overcompensation and showing off.
Romney / Ryan supporters.
It kills me how many of my college friends "Like" Romney / Ryan.
Breeders (in my definition, people with more than 3 children), wilfully ignorant people (as posters upthread mentioned), uneducated people, people who don't ever read a fucking newspaper ("hard copy" or online);also (even in this economy) people who stay years and years and YEARS at jobs they hate, without even trying to get the fuck out.
