I’m so busy that I barely have time to keep up with lj, honestly. I’ll have more time once the semester ends (obviously) but I feel like there are people on my friends list who I really haven’t had time to get to know anyway, and since I’ve been too busy to keep up with my entire friends list- I tend to only read the people that I feel I’m connected with/concerned about. It’s honestly nothing personal, I think you’re all lovely amazing people.
I’m keeping the following people. If you’re not on the list, and you really don’t feel like I’ve given you a fair chance, comment and I’ll keep you around and give it another chance.
In Ethical issues and Clients rights this afternoon, we had to write (anonymously) a personal bias/ belief that we hold against others, one that affects us enough that we do not want to be around individuals who fit in the criteria. After, professor Senna went through and read them all for the class. It’s amazing the things that people are prejudiced about. Some of them were actually amusing, i.e.: “I won’t date men who don’t have large hands”. Comedy. Others were, not so much, i.e.: “I think that Jewish people made up the holocaust”. I’m not kidding. Someone actually said that. If anyone is curious, mine was “I think less of people when I find out that they voted for proposition 8”.
Anyway. I don’t know how comfortable anyone would be admitting their personal biases to me, which is understandable- so I’ll make the entry public and allow anonymous posting.
Please comment on this entry, with your very own personal bias against society. It’s human nature to have them, so unless you are the best person I’ve ever met you’re bound to have at least one.
