    I recently stumbled across an idea expressed that hatred is always healthy and unhealthy for a slew of reasons. But the idea that certain types of hatred cannot be viewed as totally unhealthy astounds me. So I wonder, what do other people think?

    ps, please do not say you hate me because it turns me on.

    Nope, I'd say hatred is pretty bad. It's healthy to UNDERSTAND hate, but hate itself... uh, don't think there's really anything nice about it.

    As a kid I would say I hated things. And my mother always said to me "hate is too harsh of a word to use and mean." She said you dislike something or whatever very much. But you dont hate anything. So I cant answer your poll. I firmly believe what my mother had said to me. To this day (39 years of age) I do not use the word hate. And even in my thoughts I only dislike things alot.

    that's pretty interesting

    I always say I view political opposites as opponents and not enemies. Similar type of belief system.

    Too many here and elsewhere are full of hate and venom, then they go and post phony shit when tragedies like the recent earthquake in Haiti happen...expecting to be viewed as nice people. MAkes me sad... :(

    To hate someone or something, you have to be emotionally involved with them, or it.

    I never get emotionally involved

    I just don't care because apathy is healthier than hate
