Are you a hater?

I eliminated the word HATE from my lips and my internal monologue long ago.

I don't hate traffic. Traffic is aggrivating.

The only time I use the word hate now is talking about how the word hate is misued.

Very seldom in life will I find myself in an emotion that requires hate.

Are you a hater?

Tories. I can accept as a theoretical proposition the idea that some of them are good, just as I accept other propositions that common experience does not seem to confirm, such as the idea that my own body is composed of trillions of atoms, or the notion that adults that listen to Ed Sheeran can be trusted with the vote. Still, they'll all be for the wall, come the revolution. Best not to take any chances, I say.

No. But how is this Politics & Religion??

One of my friends from years ago told me about using the hate word rule. Both of his parents were psychologists. I try to cut the word hate out when used frivolously, but still keep it around for when hate is the proper term. Like what Uptown just said.

As in jealousy, the slang. Or just the broad generalization of the word hate?

Yeah sure there are things in this world I hate. And yeah there are times I get unreasonably jealous.

There are many things (and people) in this world that I hate. So I guess I am a "hater".

My grandmother would never say the word hate, or write it. She replaced it with 'haint'. And the only time she would use 'haint' was to tell us we shouldn't 'haint' anybody. LOL

.

I hate tokenism.

.

For example: trying to show you are a better person by finding a a different word for when you find traffic aggrivating or not being able to say you hate bigotry, you hate racism, you hate violence, you hate discrimination because there is some issue with a word that just means you dislike some things intensely or passionately or feel a strong aversion to.

.

If there is virtually nothing that inspires any emotion that requires hate, then you are far, far too accepting of evil in this world.

.

What I will not say is I hate that person - I will say I hate what that person did, I hate what that person allowed to occur etc but never that person.

I think in a lot of cases, the word "hate" is used to describe things that are at most inconvenient or not to our taste. And in this day and age, we use the word "awesome" to describe spaghetti, so to me anyway, it's hard to take the word "hate" seriously when most people say it.

.

Just as I said: I do not believe anyone is truly evil, I believe that people can and do do a lot of truly evil things and I hate that.

.

As a real life example: To most, one of the most evil acts is childhood sexual abuse. As a victim of this, I hate what was done to me and I especially hate the far worse things done to others. I did what I could to see that person imprisoned to prevent his evil acts continuing. I did what I could to expose the people that knowingly allowed this occur to prevent them allowing these evil acts from happening under their watch in the future. However, I was given the opportunity to have this person targetted in prison for extreme retribution by inmates. I did what I could to prevent this well intentioned evil act. If we hate the person and consider them evil, it becomes us against them. If we hate the evil acts, it can become all of us together against the acts. We can unite to seek do unto others only what we would them do unto us.

I think there are people who are truly evil in the world. I was just reading today an article about Ian Brady which states (from an interview with a prison officer):

"There is little change in his hard remorseless egotistical attitude. He is one of the few men to whom I would attach the label 'evil'."

There are prisoners that I know prison staff describe as 'evil to the core'. Fortunately they are few and far between. If we wasted our time hating these men (and some women) the hate would consume us. Far better to spend our time on other things really.

If you're going to refer to people as 'scum', at least have a reason to do so.

^^ All of that still doesn't mean it would change anything to remove and replace the word hate from your vocabulary which is the topic here.

The replacing words trick is not a new concept. It's a psychology therapy. I know someone who tried to remove the word perfect from their vocabulary because they were trying to be less of a perfectionist. It's an interesting excercise for awareness I guess, but no more than that.

To say - The only time I use the word hate now is talking about how the word hate is misued - is simplistic. Hate still exists and there are reasons to use the word. Taking the word away doesn't take hate away.
