I've noticed that phenomenon lately all over the net and in real life as well. Maybe they are the people who deal with their anger and frustration by
finding someone to take it out on. I have a friend like that. I'm pretty empathic and hate arguing, so when he's spoiling for a fight, I'm very kind
and suddenly busy with something else. Every time, he finds someone to scream and rage at, whether it's the kids, his dog, his brother or the way
someone is driving. If he knew how to log on (joke...kind of), he might be writing nasty comments to people in forums. If he can't find someone to
rage at, it just builds up until he explodes like a volcano at someone
. It's not personal. Anyone or even a dog or horse will do. There must be
something to blame....something to rage about to let the steam off. There is no regard at all for those who are attacked. They're called selfish if
they ever bring up what happened. (Narcissism?)
It's very tiring and boring to be around someone who is acting like they're a 2 year old.....especially when they start projecting things on you and
screaming about what never happened, what you never dreamed of thinking and refuse to calm down....
I wonder if it's because ANGER is the only acceptable emotion for males to get really passionate with unless they want to be called a variety of names
and disregarded....seen as weak. People who are angry and annoyed are perceived as powerful and smart according to some recent psychological research.
Perhaps anger is their only path of emotional expression. These types never really laugh or smile nor do they encourage others....it's 'top dog'
behavior, if you know what I mean.
That real life friend is calmer lately....but everyone else decided to model his behavior...
What ever happened to manners, diplomacy and decorum?
We need a new meme for aggressive, nasty behavior and caustic commenting that will discourage anyone from so crudely expressing themselves with acidic
comments and personally attacking others with such vehemence. There is no excuse for such ignorant
behavior. We're more intelligent
