    You know I just do not understand why it happens. I go to forums and I talk about things, generally my beliefs. Most of them are very different than most other peoples. Stuff like, me being childfree and why no intelligent person wants kids, or why relationships with females outside of the net is worthless, or why video games are worth much more time than socializing.

    I go to these forums and just state my beliefs. Not in the nicest way, I guess, but I still state them. And the fact that 95% of people so openly reject them as skewed logic or just plain stupid. Sometimes I will write 3 or 4 pages of reason supporting why I believe what I do. And people just write it off as nonsensical.

    This for some reason depresses me. It makes me want to die. People call me narrow-minded and stupid. Yet that is their only response to me. "You just don't understand, you just close your eyes and make things they way they are" stuff like that. And I get depressed and suicidal. I wonder if it is because the world is falling apart like that. Everyone hates the person who chooses to be different in this world.... any thoughts?

    I'm an atheist. I see religious people as blind, unable to think because of their "faith". They see me as blind, also, because I can't see their god.

    People will always disagree with you. The more people disagree with me, the more will it gives me to fight. To keep on going. To keep saying what I believe in hopes that at least one person agrees with me. And people have. And if I can get that one person to see my point of view, not necessarily my point of view because I believe it's right, but because they changed their view because they figured out that their prior view was wrong, and this one is right.

    You can't change people if they don't want to change, either. I know people who no matter how many times you say something, no matter how many reasons you give, no matter how many points you prove, they will not listen.

    This is a quote I live by:

    “When an individual is protesting society's refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him.”

    I do not agree with you views, but I believe in your right to say them. Keep on fighting, never give in.

    But I am tired of fighting... and I just want to give in. The battles I fight are futile I will never win them. It is getting exhausting.
