    The following is an aggolmeration of views and opinions people hold in our society, which really annoy me, ranging from personal ones held behind closed doors to public.


    1. When people choose to remain virgins despite having reached 'third base' - this really annoys me because of its sheer stupidity. I know a few guys & girls who in their futile attempts to appear innocent, claim they are virgins despite having given or received oral sex to & from several people amongst other things. You're clearly not 'pure' anymore so you might as well just go all the way. Really annoying.

    2. When religious people believe their religion is the only 'real' one - I find it quite disturbing to know that some people are so ignorant and closed-minded that they actually believe there is no chance of any other religion being true. As a result, they act incredibly pompous, waving their religious scriptures in our faces trying to spread the 'holy word', unaware they are mere fools.

    3. When people - particularly young, urban-dwelling Londoners - think they are 'cool' when they attempt to adopt African American culture in an attempt to uphold 'Negro pride' or follow it for that matter - wearing baggy jeans, baggy hoodies, hi-top sneakers, flat-rim caps, chains & using vile [perversions of the English language] colloquialisms like: "wagwan Bee" & "murk dat fool!"
      You are not cool. You are idiots.

    4. When old people mock the younger generation and moan at them for 'having it easy' - please shut your mouths. We don't care about how hard life was back in the Stone Age. Times change and if you think we have it easy compared to you, don't worry, you don't have much time left anyway so you won't have to put up with our easier lifestyles for much longer.

    5. When first-year Medicine students think that watching House and Gray's Anatomy is a ticket into Medicine - you are totally deluded. The aspiring Med students from my college who used to parade around the scene, boasting about their new addition to their Gray's Anatomy collections were quite disgraceful. If you are one of these, please sort your life out.

    6. When slim girls in their late teens/early twenties think they will still look good without exercise in about 5-10 year's time - no you will not. This is one of the reasons I'm choosing not to be involved in a long-term relationship whilst I'm an undergrad because as I have high standards to match my good looks & charm, none of the hot girls I pull on a regular basis do much exercise. I refuse to be forced to stay with them 5 years down the line when they turn into repulsive butter-balls on legs.

    7. When people think it is okay to show public displays of affection - kissing and any form of petting for that matter, should be reserved for closed doors. I know what you're thinking: "lol but u jus' jelly brah" but as a matter of fact, I'm not. Sitting on the bus on my way back to campus, I'd rather view the serene grace of the urban landscape than be confronted with the vulgar sight of a young, horny couple, sucking each other's faces off in the back of the bus. Get a room.

    8. When Muslims constantly deny the truth - I have read many issues regarding the gross mistreatment of women in Islamic states. When faced with a compelling argument, they always pull the "ye buh dat ain't Islam bruv" card. Why? Please rid yourselves of the veils of ignorance encasing your skulls and accept it as it is.

    9. When people think gay marriages should be acceptable - I'm about to quote an esteemed, respectful and impartial man who shares the views of many. Pope Benedict XVI on gay marriages:

      "Sexual differences cannot be dismissed as irrelevant to the definition of marriage,"

      I'm not even a Roman Catholic nor am I religious for that matter, yet I still agree with his words of wisdom in that every child has the right to a mother and father but that is another debate altogether.

    10. When people criticise guys for using prostitutes - why do you do this? When a guy pays for sex, why is he given so much more grief than another guy who deceives, seduces and uses guileless girls for sex, only to dispose of them when he is bored?
      To a lot of guys, sex has no meaning beyond the physical interactions so as long as they are not breaking the law or hurting anyone, I really don't see why the hell it matters if they are willing to pay for it.

      Guys who do this get called all sorts of names like "desperate" and "pathetic" because they can't pull a "real woman". The truth here is that chasing stuck-up girls around in nightclubs, buying them drinks, paying for the taxi, etc. and trying to woo them into bed is probably more degrading [to both your wallet and integrity] than simply calling an escort company and getting laid.
      So stop judging guys who use escorts, immediately.

    11. When not-so-bright people believe 'dyslexia' is a legitimate excuse to afford them an extra 20 minutes in exams - rather disgraceful and deceitful. I don't need to go into detail about why dyslexia is, as I once said:

      "The greatest student hoax known to man"

    12. When people think you are 'superficial' and 'shallow' because you won't date an ugly person - Why? Why must I be looked at scornfully because I find physical attraction important? If you are a munter reading this, I'm sorry to say but I wouldn't date you because:

      • There is no way I could ever fantasise about making love to you if you have grotesque facial & bodily features I find repulsive
      • I would probably cheat on you eventually with a hotter person if you guilt-trip me into dating you. Do you want that? If not then leave me the hell alone.
      • I would find it hard to get a boner in your presence and that is a sure sign that it definitely won't work.


      Don't be disappointed, though. If there is 'a lil sum'n sum'n' about you as they say, which makes me see you in a positive light (big ass or big boobs for instance) then I might go for you, even if you are a solid 4 or 5 but you cannot be fat, have acne or have bad teeth. That is a big no-no for me.

    1. People who think being gay is a choice piss me off. I can't even imagine what kind of 'logic' goes through their mind to reach that kind of conclusion.
    2. People who think their religion is the only right one.
    3. People who think they are superior for being born in a certain place in the world by chance. Patriotism is ok. Nationalism is not. (IMO)
    4. People who act like their opinion is fact. ARRRGGH!

    People who believe climate change doesn't even exist.
    People who don't believe in evolution- this is not a new, controversial issue any more FFS. Do some reading.
    People who force their religious beliefs on others.
    People who try to influence politics based just on their religious views.
    People who believe whatever the Daily Mail tells them.
    The Daily Mail.
    People who don't believe men and women are equal.
    People who don't think gay people should have the same rights as anyone else.

    All these make me FUME. And rage. And swear incoherently.

    Xenophobia - one that particularly grates me is that some people today believe Germany is STILL Nazi :eek:
    Discrimination against the ill/disabled - say, you see an overweight man. You think he's bought it on himself by eating too much chocolate and drinking too many fizzy drinks. What if that isnt the real case? What if he has faulty genes or a condition he cannot help

    Then I would give my sincere apologies to them for my assumption that they were like 99.9999999999% of all other overweight men.

    There is more to come
    1. We do have it much easier than they did, everything has been handed to most of us on a plate and we complain about having to achieve a few A*s and getting a part time job that doesn't pay more than £6 an hour. The irony in your old people rant is that you already sound like a moaning pensioner, let's hope your future family don't dismiss your thoughts and legit opinions because you are a few decades closer to death than they are.



    2. My muslim friends talk about this one a lot, their reasoning is that people in the middle east are stuck in the ways of the past and that the Qu'ran wasn't the only anti-feminist holy scripture around, - the bible, it's been commonplace for inequality for years, this isn't just an islamic thing, so don't become a borderline racist, but judging by your accumulation of red gems you seem to be on a cruscade for being the most negged tsr member of all time.



    3. I agree that people don't need marriage to ratify their love, civil partnerships declare that already and marriage is primarily the tradition of religious institutions that are centuries old so don't really need to be altered.

    However I would rather a child be raised and loved by two people of the same gender than ending up in an orphanage or a broken home with a struggling single mother, and if you disagree then your views are pretty archaic, and this makes you hypocritical.


    Damn you for inciting a response from me, oh well, a few worthy minutes of procrastination.

    1. People who believe in the principle of "an eye for an eye". Childish, moronic, out-dated, destructive, illogical, reactionary crap.
    2. People who think their religion is so much better than someone else's, when 99% of the time they were brought up in a certain faith, and have had no exposure to any other religions.
    3. People who get violent over sports. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my sports teams to the death. But I would never attack a rival fan. Pure insanity.
    4. People who honestly think that modern chart music is the best music - this fries me. Yes of course I accept that everyone has different tastes, as my favourite bands are certainly not the best in history. But I detest ignorant, brain-washed little twerps who derp on about One Direction and JLS (bands who I might add, don't even write their own music, which is all generically basic and the same anyway). My favourite bands are most certainly not the best there ever were, and I acknowledge the pure talent of the real musical geniuses: Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Johnny Cash to name but a few. Just openly accept that what you listen to is generic and corporate, and I will be content.
    5. People who think it's acceptable to say words like "dappa" and "reem". Stupid words created by stupid pretentious people. GAHHH!
    6. People who think they have the right to judge and dictate what consenting adults do behind closed doors. Quite frankly I could not care less what Derek wants to shove up Alan next door, as long as he isn't doing it in the street.
    7. People who accept conspiracy theories like 9/11 and the moon landings. Paranoid, retarded, backward, needy rubbish.
    8. Anyone who accepts anything like palm-reading, psychic mediums, homeopathy, tarot readings and star signs. Pure BS. Disproven so many times it's unbelievable how any of it survives, and is in some cases preferred over scientific method.

    People who put looks as the no.1 priority when looking for a partner (op), and think this is the foundation for a relationship. You're going to be disappointed at some point, as everyone starts looking like crap eventually. People like this should inform new partners that they intend to become dissatisfied with the relationship in the future and that they plan to ditch them for a younger model.
    Stop lying to people and wasting their time, or at least stick to other superficial individuals. Don't ever get married. Inform potential partners that you are not marriage material.

    In summary- 'shallow people'.

    You seem to have a lot of hate in you man! I can understand the ones that directly affect you, but a lot of your complaints have nothing to do with you. So what if two people love each other and they happen to be the same sex? I respect them for leading their lives however they want and completely disregarding the backward opinions of other people.

    In response to your comment about kids needing a mum and a dad, I don't think that's true. Kids need love and attention, and from the friends I have that were raised by gay parents I can safely say they produce well mannered and polite young people. Nicer than a lot of kids raised by a mum and a dad!

    I'm sure you do a lot of things that annoy people! Live and let live.

    You are not cool. You are idiots.
    We can say this because their hasn't been a Islamic state for over a 100years and even then the Ottoman empires had issues. An Islamic state would have a Caliphate, of which none today have and run by a monarchy which isn't in Islam. It's obvious to us that it isn't Islam.


    Also the issue about the young Londoners, that is the biggest generalisation.............that is totally unfair to criticise how someone wants to wear clothes in a certain manner...............just because people like a style doesn't mean they are trying to conform to those type of people at all...it just they like the clothing sense maybe.
