How rude! I read this response on another message board I haunt and the profile pic was of this woman and her S.O. (I couldn't tell if they were married or not) but this asshat member replied to the pic "Why are you dating a fat guy?"
I'm not sure but I think she either reported him or was able to erase but the comment is gone now.
This got me thinking, though, about two separate issues; 1.) why some folk's social filters are broken (like the asshat's) and 2.) Do NON-ASSHATS actually think those things (why is with a fat guy) but just don't say it because we have filters.
I contend that most folks would never had that thought pop into their heads in the first place and if they did it would've been allowed to go further because it would've been thrown into the thought trash can a.s.a.p.
Still, after I read that rude comment I kinda had the same thought, the picture was a happy looking couple (I'm guessing in their mid 40's though he looked like he could've been older) during the summer at a pool or beach? The man looked somewhat dis-shoveled, messy somewhat balding hair, a big beer belly and she looked amazing. But that's the thing, book covers don't tell the story, the inside of those people (us) tell the story. I certainly don't know what they are like, maybe he's the best man on earth? Maybe he stuck with her during rough times and she loves him for that. Maybe judging people based on looks isn't what we ought to do?
As for the lack of filter use, I can only say for myself that I KNOW I have said some things UN-FILTERED (though not like this asshat) that were deemed rude and since rude is totally subjective who's really to say what is rude and what is not, right?
IDK, I thought the asshat's comment was pretty darn rude, don't you?
a.) Do you know folks either in real life or internet persona's who totally lack social filtering?
b.) Have you ever looked at a couple where one of them, in your opinion, was hot and the other was not and thought, "What the heck is s/he doing with him/her?"
