Those who have lived with me--last housemate for 8 years--watching the hate phenomena thing . . . have all felt strongly that the main factor is
--I tend to call a spade a spade; tell it like it is; straight out, with RELATIVELY little white wash or foam rubber/warm & furry padding
--Most folks don't like to have a 3D mirror showing them, telling them things they have not wanted to hear; have avoided hearing all their lives.
Then, another factor is . . . because of my values, personality, perspectives . . . some folks are reminded by some aspect of those parts of me--they
are reminded of some parent, teacher, preacher etc. that they felt angry with or even abused by early in their lives and have never gotten over it.
So, when they run into me, all the black stuff stored in their closet of horrors, grief and anger comes tumbling out on top of me. I tend to get a 100
kilogram response to a microgram of stimulus. LOL.
Just part of the territory of being me . . . for at least 60 years.
