    Default This site creates prejudices.

    Shouldn't it have the opposite effect?

    you would hope... but it seems to work like bussing instead... some Ns get their feathers all ruffled because those that they're trying to get away from show up here as well

    People create prejudices. This site is just the arena.

    In an ideal world and in theory, yes. But...no matter how open-minded people are, they still need to organize the world somehow and put people in categories, us/them, good/bad, intelligent/unintelligent, you name it. That's just how humans are. Everybody has their own interpretations of how things are in the world and what they mean and so on. So, I guess everybody is prejudiced by default. This site isn't any different because people don't just erase their thoughts and opinions when they log on.

    In nursey terms, this site is like a reservoir for all those prejudiced germs.

    Perhaps I could make an ES pity party thread instead. Nobody wants us here. Nobody likes us. Everyone is so prejudiced against us.
    Boo.

    Agreed. Some people have an overwhelming need to generalize and categorize everything. If you align that with a person who believes that they can easily spot the truth of a situation/person etc based on limited or superficial knowledge of said situation/person then that's what you get.

    I'm not sure that N's try and escape. Harmony would be great but it is an unrealistic expectaion for a forum such as this. It's too varied, besides, I'm not sure what inspired this thread.

    We like you... but not when creating pity parties for yourselves!

    It was a little vague...

    I don't think everyone is prejudiced by default. From what I've observed toddlers don't really exhibit that kind of behavior. As they get older some (not all) become more and more prejudiced depending on their environment.
