You do not understand pain because you have never experienced it!

Why do idiots say that when they know nothing about the person whom they negatively criticize for making a comment about suffering and death which they disagree with?

I answered my own question of course, they are idiots, they cannot help it.

Is that kind of presumptive stupidity common? Is it contagious?

  • i've reread your post a couple of times and i'm trying to understand what you're asking.

    Each of us grieve a loss and feel pain in a unique way. One does not have to lose a son to sympathize with a mother who has lost a son. To say, 'Oh, I know how you feel' would be presumptuous and incorrect in any instance. Even from one mother to another that has suffered a similar loss can only say, "I too, lost my son".

    There are so many feelings that accompany the grief process, ie guilt, remorse. To criticize another for how they grieve or to presume they aren't grieving...im not so sure that stupidity and idiocy apply as well as the description of being 'shallow' does.

    Is that type of presumptive stupidity common? Well, I sure hope not but I'm calling the local health dept. to check for an available vaccine just in case. *winks

  • I was referring to people that presume other people, whom they do not know, have never known pain, and that that presumption justifies insulting them for their opinions.

    Anyone that says, "you have never suffered a day in your life, so what right do you have to criticize the behavior of those people that have suffered?" when he/she has no idea of the history of the person they are presuming has never suffered, is an idiot.

  • Do you remember your mother ever having asked you what happens when you ASSUME something? My mother used to tell me that when you assume, you make an ass out of you, not me. It is very befitting in this case.
