Why Am I Sharing or Commenting On This Post I Hate? (A Checklist in Gifs)

First of all...you really want to do this? Like, really?


Well...okay. I'm not here to judge you. I'm just here to provide a handy way of sorting our your feelings on exactly why you're going to put yourself through this. Please check all that apply.



I AM SHARING OR COMMENTING ON THIS POST THAT I HATE SO MUCH BECAUSE:

__ I like to argue with friends on Facebook


__ I like to argue with complete strangers on the internet


__ I want to feel superior by mocking someone I disagree with


__ MY RAGE IS CATHARTIC


__ Mild irritation is cathartic, too


__ I want to reaffirm shared values with friends by pointing to a common enemy


__ I want to rebut the arguments point by point


__ I see it as a genuine teaching moment



Finally, a humble reminder. I'm not here to judge you or say you shouldn't do what you're about to do, but no matter how many "likes" you get, no matter how many angry replies you provoke, it won't make a bit of difference.


Right. Carry on.
