Look, I'm not a fucking broker or a hustler, okay? I don't care that you keep running around telling me or others to go waste our time and money to put into markets that can be incredibly unpredictable. It is all about luck, chance and risk. Things most wouldn't want to put themselves on the line over even if they were down next to nothing. They'd rather buy lottery tickets.

Any and all trends. The more people say I should care, the less I do.

Having kids. We have zero desire to have kids so everyone can just stop trying to convince us.

The British Royal family. I'm an American, living in America, and the number of people here who follow the royals to the point of being sycophants is so freaking weird. I literally do not care about the machinations of a bunch of rich fucks who's sole claim to fame and fortune is being sprayed out of the correct penis before then falling out of the correct vagina.

The rest of us feel that way about your Kardashians.

Difference is we know the Kardashians are just reality show celebrities and we're not hanging their portraits in schools. The Trumps might be a better analog of the British Royal family.

The whole shtick going on between men and women right now.

Between the bear and the tree I just want everyone to stfu and realize humans are shit get over it and move on with your small insignificant life.

Most things. The world is a big place and I'm better off focusing on what's important to me.

Whatever's the current "big" issue in showbiz. I really couldn't care less that ABC was photographed with DEF in GHI, possibly hinting a relationship collapse with JKL, or whatever it was that people are harping about with other people's lives.

Scandalous! Where can I hear more about this ABC, DEF, JKL love triangle?

Celebrities and sports.

I understand doing sports, but watching others is as exciting as watching paint dry to me. Not to mention combining both as in cheering for a team of people I don't know. I don't get it.

Trans stuff. Before you get the torches and pitchforks, I have no problem with them. I believe they deserve equality, and I don't believe in spreading hate their way. I'm not Trans, so I don't have a horse in this race, nor do I desire one. It doesn't appeal to me, it doesn't interest me in the slightest. I have my own concerns (keeping my house, paying my bills, keeping my family safe) and they have theirs, I guess is what I'm saying. If I see a Trans person get mistreated, I'll stick up for them, just like I'd do for anyone, but I'm not interested in it. They are no different from me, we are all people. I think constantly bringing it up to people all the time is more of a disservice.

I think constantly bringing it up to people all the time is more of a disservice.

The trans community is tiny, I'm an almost 50 year old trans woman transitioned over 20 years ago. The reason we have the rights we do is because it's "brought up all the time". When I transitioned, it was rarely brought up, this was because most people were scared of the social and economic consequences of doing so. This is all changing because we talk about it rather than be quiet and let people keep us down. I'd imagine even you might have more negative views of trans people if the only exposure you had was from talk shows promoting us as freaks, this is how it was before.

Other than that, your attitude is fine, not everyone needs to be interested.

You are more than welcome to think I "might have more negative views of Trans people". You're wrong, but it is what it is.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 3 weeks ago

I think the silent majority feels like this.

"Eh, not my cup of tea, but you do you"

but you do you

That's what they're fighting for lol
