Get a Negative Reaction? Simple, you have Outgrown them

From a comment section:

Woman #1:

“Women are usually the first ones I share any new idea with. And I’ve noticed that the women I share my new ideas with typically have an initial negative reaction. STOP IT.”

Woman #2 responding:

“I learned long ago – if any person reacts with negativity – you have outgrown them.”

Wow, right? Doesn’t this show how much women can’t stand negative or critical reactions. We are all suppose to be on team women and be cheerleaders for each other. Every idea is terrific! We are suppose to praise other women up and down and tell them how they can never do any wrong. All this does is encourage women to lie and be fake with each other. Knowing what I know of this woman now and were she to present an idea I didn’t agree with I would pretty much have to lie and say “OMG, that is such an amazing idea, you should like totally do it” or just realize that the end of the friendship because she can’t handle a criticism.

I don’t believe these women are Christian so it highlights the feminist or secular bird and how just like the traditionalist bird they too can’t handle anything negative. For example, take Lori and her negative book reviews. What woman #2 says sounds exactly like Lori and it would be a great line for her to use in response to her book reviews. Yet rather than accept someone said something negative about her book and that it might have merits, its easier to just plug her ears and walk away convinced she has outgrown them. Yes, that is much more mature. The problem isn’t me or my idea, its YOU. “I am intellectually and/or spiritually more mature than you and that is why you don’t get my ideas, which are clearly terrific if you were just smart enough to see” Clearly, this woman’s insight is so beyond the average woman that anyone who dare criticizes is just immature or as Christians would say “a baby Christian”.” Don’t hang around those baby Christians, you have outgrown them”.

Maybe this is Trump’s problem. All those negative reaction he gets–maybe he has just outgrown those people. Imagine if he gave that response the uproar there would be. He would be said to be arrogant and full of himself but women can say things things and its just another day.

  1. @TPC – I was speaking of my experience with the supporters that I know. Loyalty in the extreme and of course easily offended by negative opinions.

    This bizarre notion that Trump supporters are uniquely pig-ignorant and moronically, slavishly devoted to Der Fuhrer is way stupider than anything Trump’s actually said or done.

    I LOL’d at “uniquely pig-ignorant.” I don’t believe that to be the case. That perception in general probably comes from months of watching people cheer and chant at Trump promising to lock Hilary Clinton up, make Mexico pay for a wall and other ridiculous campaign promises.

    And of course I realize that everyone who voted for Trump doesn’t see him as Der Fuher or the “God-emperor” or whatever silly thing the alt-right is calling him.

    Working through the list of other candidates who made it pretty far, Cruz, Clinton, and Sanders have said plenty of crazy, inflammatory things, but mysteriously none of the smug descends to say “most of their supporters don’t seem to care about this kind of thing.”

    I really thought the arrogance and smug would stop showing up in all corners of the interwebs after the election was over. Too optimistic there.

    There are plenty of smug and arrogant opinions about supporters of every single candidate you mentioned. Smug and arrogant opinions clearly aren’t going any where, but if my thoughts on this offend I don’t mind keeping them to myself. I don’t think it is worth arguing over.

  2. Nobody knows what most “supporters” (which can mean anything or nothing) feel or care about any political candidate since that’s usually thousands of people to millions of people and we’ve all learned the limitations of sampling via polls when select supporters of a political candidate are heavily biased about what “representative” means. This bizarre notion that Trump supporters are uniquely pig-ignorant and moronically, slavishly devoted to Der Fuhrer is way stupider than anything Trump’s actually said or done. Trump himself is part and parcel of a long American political tradition. Working through the list of other candidates who made it pretty far, Cruz, Clinton, and Sanders have said plenty of crazy, inflammatory things, but mysteriously none of the smug descends to say “most of their supporters don’t seem to care about this kind of thing.”

  3. I had someone considering an open marriage tell me once that she and her husband had “outgrown” traditional marriage as if adultery and fornication represented some higher level of thinking. It is the kind of thing that people say when they know that they are wrong but want to feel good about their actions anyway. The only thing that is truly wrong is making the “godly” person feel bad with your criticism.

    Maybe this is Trump’s problem. All those negative reaction he gets–maybe he has just outgrown those people. Imagine if he gave that response the uproar there would be. He would be said to be arrogant and full of himself but women can say things things and its just another day.

    I think that Trump could get away with this actually. Most of his supporters don’t seem to care about this kind of thing.
