Is it Justin Bieber? Twilight? E.L James? Rebecca Black? Miley Cyrus? One Direction? Imran Khan? Shaista Wahidi? Nemar? Is it people who have a way of life like mine? A race, or people following religion? It seems everybody these days passionately hates some things more than they love things they love. What trending hate are you taking part in?
I don't particularly support the people mentioned above(Although Twilight isn't a person but that's what people recognise more, not the author. I admire the author for getting published and dealing with the fame with humility. I HATE the books). But I realised that there was a time when people would follow the crowd because it seemed to be the right thing to do. Now, the most trending thing intellectuals are supposed to do is hate on something to prove their intellect.
I've seen people going blue in the face trying to disgrace the personalities they hate
and people they hate based upon a preconceived view.
They'll go to great lengths to prove their point. I've seen friendships broken
because of this. People form Facebook hate groups
and join forums where they discuss their hatred. They'll have virtual battles on the internet for days trying to prove their points.
And it's these same haters who go with the tag line, #hatersgonnahate
as if they don't care what others think whereas they are so pessimistic and abusive in an effort to show they don't care but such an attitude certainly doesn't come from indifference. It comes from caring too much. It comes from frustration and the need for finding a vent.
If you don't approve of something and it's not affecting your life, why would you go out of your way to show your hatred?
There are two kinds of haters- the guilty ones and the righteous ones. The righteous ones aee mentioned above. The guilty ones would hate Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, Lionel Messi, Taylor Swift, maybe even the ways of their own culture
(love, love, love all these people and books by the way). But since it's wrong by the standards of the righteous haters, they won't express their opinions freely.
Is it wrong for someone to dislike a personality, or fantasy and dystopia or something that doesn't sit well with their conscience?
Coming to the huge Twilight fan base and the books inspired by it, is it wrong for insecure girls to find fanciful escapism in the books without being judged and having the book analysed to determine their psyche?
If girls are insecure, it's because of bullies and haters exactly like these, using the word "insecure" at them like it's a foul word. Well, they don't know any other way to be themselves! So at least give them the privilege to enjoy someone's work (may it be a 1d song) if you can't be there for them for their good. Stop being part of this endemic virus of hatred on planet earth.
One thing I found in common in all the righteous haters was narcissism, and egocentrism towards people they feel got unduly famous or people they think are stupid.
To them, I'd say, take a break and enjoy all that you love in your life and let people enjoy all the bogus they want to enjoy and the good fortune that was bestowed upon them. Pity the stupid and try to help them
instead of picking on them.So, do you hate someone? And how do you deal with haters?
Hate and love are strong words. Use them carefully.

P.S I hate Titanic
and Lil Wayne.
