Question Are you biased?
What are you biased against? I don't discriminate, do you? Hate is the equivalent of discrimination, once you allow yourself to hate someone for something they believe in or who they are, you are essentially saying that they're all bad people no matter what their actions speak for themselves and others amongst them. Even in the most notorious of people, it was only a few, and not the many.

Not sure where to put this.

I'm offended by the fact that Australia and Britain share an option.

I can imagine that loads of people hate the Aussies but love the English (not the Scottish though) Big Grin!

I don't think lines is much of a punishment online, copy and paste saw to that.

I'll tell you what, I'll official make you an honourary English person. That's probably the highest compliment you can get as an Aussie Big Grin.

RE: Are you biased?
I try to think of people as individuals. There will be good and bad in all.

I disagree with your reasoning on hate though.

RE: Are you biased?
Years ago I made a personal discovery. I realised that I hated certain people and individuals even though they had never done anything to hurt me.

I had been taught to hate.

So no I dont "hate" any of the people on your list....... however I cant answer your poll because even though I try my hardest, sometimes I find myself temporarily slipping because of my past/programming. Although now I have the power to realise this and stop myself......to rethink.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.

RE: Are you biased?
Sigh,

Hate is such an overused word, it kind of loses its meaning after a while, probably why you gave it a new meaning in your opening post.

What about words like loathe, despise, abhor, dislike, distrust, revile, detest and many more.

The question "are you biased" has a Yes or No answer... and the answer is YES, because its an innate human condition, whether one thinks one is biased or not.

Is there a point to the question ?
