Tolerance by waraulol Tolerance by waraulol
:iconalertplz: EDIT: I can't believe what I just saw... 15K view in a day? :iconcannotevenplz:
Not to brag or anything, but I'm not used to this kind of thing. :B

That being said, though, I kinda feel bad of this having far more views than it deserves. I mean, people, there are many better things in my gallery to check out, so go there. Shameless advertising lol /shot

----------------------------------------------------------

TOLERANCE: it's simple as that.

Well, in theory, that is. In practice, this ranges from simple to mind-numbingly difficult. There are also things that tolerance doesn't cover.

In particular, something is harmful to others or oneself, regardless of enjoying it or not, it's not acceptable to let it happen.

It gets even more complicated after that because it's not just related to obvious things such as murder, rape or any other criminal atrocities. There are a lot of people with disorders or mental health issues, even if they don't look like they have any problems at all, who can be severely damaged because they try hard to tolerate something that causes them panic/anxiety/OCD attacks or worse.


And to state the obvious, tolerance deals with opinions rather than facts.

The expanded version of this is:

1. I don't like "X", but I'm OK if you do. Unless when you call me a "freaky hater" or something like that.
2. I like "Y", but I'm OK if you don't. Unless when you call me a "freaky faggot" or something like that.
3. Just don't bug me about X and Y above.
4. If my views become different than yours, let's have a mutual, peaceful disagreement.
5. An addition from our buddy *irrenderNarr42 - Tolerance: I don't mind what you do. Indifference: I don't care what you do. - One can be indifferent while being intolerant, and vice versa.


But if you can already understand those in the image, congrats, you've understood the basics of tolerance. =)

As somebody said, "Tolerance and apathy are two last virtues of a dying society." (I'm not sure who said it, since different sources said different things.) BTW, the third point above is more about apathy than tolerance, actually.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Made only with MS Paint.

If there's something you need to talk about, feel free to say it. One rule: Don't be rude. =)

BTW, I'm considering of making this into a stamp instead. If one of you wanna step up and make one, though, go ahead, and tell me. By the time said stamp was made, I'll delete this pic. :B

And well... As hard as I support tolerance, I believe this stamp beats this pic every day: [link]
Go and fav it, too. ;)

And again, as hard as I support tolerance, sometimes intolerance is okay, too: [link]

Speaking of Apathy, it's the "secret weapon" when tolerance isn't enough. I read through others' comments here.
So yeah; I am both apathetic and tolerant; there are times I am apathetic and times I am tolerant.

So all in all my Muslim friend, I applaud you on posting something the world REALLY NEEDS once again!

If you don't wish to argue don't, some people genuinely enjoy it. Maybe you should tolerate that..

Is tolerance good, because you prefer it, or do you prefer it because it is good?

By preaching that people should be tolerant about what they dislike, you assume your opinion to be something superior to personal preference, something superior to the opposite view.
It shoud possess some objective basis. But, like all normative claims, cannot have any.
It is just your personal preference, which applies to nobody else.

While I don't think everyone share my view, I believe there are some who do. :B

I prefer tolerance because it is good. =)

Like I said, its goodness comes from being your personal preference, not from something objective, therefore cannot be superior to hatred and intolerance.
You are preaching to the choir.

And... What's exactly the thing you want to point out? :?

And I can't understand you saying "its goodness comes from being your personal preference" - I didn't say it's good because I prefer it, but rather the reverse... :O

Let me tell this- im not tolerantic, i hate gays and stupid people who value animals more than humans with all my heart.

It takes more to tolerate when you hate something, but it's not impossible.

Think of it like this: Even if you hate gays and furries, are you OK of them living around you (or just living at all)? If you say no, then you're intolerant. =P
