Let's get something straight.
Not everyone that's perceived as a bitch is actually unhappy.
Let's get another thing straight.
I'm a bitch.
Knowing just what to say and when to say it is a talent of mine.
If the words I type piss you off, usually that was my exact intention. Thanks for playing.
Please don't mistake my mockery for misery. I'm not unhappy, in fact, I'm laughing at you right now.
That said.....It's quite amusing to be accused of anger/bitterness/bad aura/whatthefuckever the minute I pull out the big red 'A' card. (Even when I'm behaving myself.)
More than likely it's all coincidence, but it's been a repetitive theme this week.
Just out of curiosity, I did a site search to see just how many times "Angry' came up in discussion.
It's a surprisingly sparse subject here, actually. That's why I'm writing this.
What does it mean to be angry?
I'm not talking about an emotional reaction to justified stimuli. People get angry. That's part of the human experience.
I'm not even talking about the psychological evolution that takes place under oppression, stress or threat. I'd say young minority men should have a disproportionate down tick on the happy scale in America. Bullshit makes people angry, but generally, if you remove the shit, the core personality remains the same.
What is the psychological make-up of someone that's perpetually angry? Does it stem from helplessness or the sense of helplessness?
The angriest people I know are affluent older white men, truth be told.
I think the majority of people mistake the word 'mean' for 'angry' when dealing with atheists.
A person can be mean and happy at the same time. Hell, sometimes being mean actually makes me happy! I've never seen anyone angry and happy simultaneously.
I'm beyond satisfied with my life. Seriously. I wake up every day looking forward to each minute.
I'm a homebrewer. I'm a stoner that loves to debate for the sake of debate. Discussion makes me happy, not angry. Perhaps that accusation is a projection of the speaker, and not so much of a reflection on my own behavior. I say things that piss people off. Maybe it's their own emotions they are trying to express, not mine.
