(Note: This is a cross-post from Facebook I'm adding to LJ on April 21, 2016 -- I've manually changed the date and time of this post to reflect when it originally appeared on Facebook. I've done this so that I can link to it without changing the privacy settings to the original.)
When people are clearly and wildly missing the point I am attempting to make, I can't help but feel that they are either: a) being willfully and disingenuously obtuse; b) horribly blinded and crippled by their own biases and prejudices on the matter at hand; or c) just really stupid.
I generally keep these feelings in check, but despite my best efforts there are times that my intellectual snobbery really gets the better of me. I don't suffer fools well at all (there's a reason why every woman I've ever dated is incredibly smart.)
