From: Dayton, Ohio area
I don't generally let the personal foibles of others rock my boat. people are going to do and be whatever they wish, so why sweat what doesn't have the power to impact me, right? Having said that, however, sometimes it sets my teeth on edge when I see foks that claim "I don't like this, that or the othe other" when, in fact they've never tried it and have no perspective upon which to base the statement. For some it may just be semantics, but to me it's intellectual laziness. Saying "I have no interest in that so I've never explored it" or "It holds no attraction to me" would be so much more honest.
You see it with people referring to both poly lifestyles and BDSM activities and dynamics and I just don't get it. If it holds no interest for someone, fine, don't try it but stopp saying you don't like what you haven't tried, lol. For what it's worth it, bugged the daylights out of me when my kids said they didn't like a new food I was introducing to them, too.
OK, that consitutes my rant for today. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
