I hate having my comments hijacked by someone who is trying to convert me to whatever belief they have. I hate feeling like my feelings on a subject are irrelevent, or super-sensitive, or I'm seeing a problem where there isn't one.

Bitch, if I tell you that I'm not interested in learning about the Dog Whisperer because I think, based on articles/blogs that I've read, that he's a sexist, don't turn around and preach at me on my own fucking page. I am not listening to you, and I don't like how you make me feel like I'm the one with the problem.

I never said a word to you when you were spewing your religious-brainwashing when you were married to that guy, please don't get in my face for not liking Cesar Millan. Just don't. I didn't really like you that much in theatre school, and I'm seriously considering dropping you from my f-list now.

*Attention, flist - if you are big fans of the Dog Whisperer, you may have been offended by the entry. Or not. Whichever you are, I just needed to get this off my chest, and since I can't do that on Facebook without throwing a lot of words people in RL don't know that I know, it had to be here.

A friend of mine with a dog that needs a bit of attention also despises the Dog Whisperer, so I'm not surprised other people really dislike him.

I am surprised by this person taking the hate to your own FB page and getting in your face about it. WTF. Manners, people.

As I politely explained to her, long before the thought of dog ownership had even crossed my mind, I read a couple articles that quoted some sexist stuff he had said, and I was totally put off. Retorting back with hoohah about "energy" and "pack leadership" did not address my issues with him.

It probably wasn't that bad, I was just cranky. And I didn't want to apologize for having a different opinion.

Shouldn't have to, either (apologize for having a different opinion). I have that bad habit, too - apologizing when someone doesn't like my opinion cuz it contrasts with theirs, as apologizing is easier as it smooths things out and lets harmony resurface...but it's not doing me any favours if I always 'give in', so to speak. We (people) have to learn to interact with others who have differing opinions - it's part of being social.

Kinda off topic: I wonder, now that you mention gender in a way, if dogs listen better to males. I have no idea if gender of the human they interact with most affects anything. The comment "pack leadership" made me think of it, as we always hear of "alpha males".
