I was talking to a friend yesterday and the topic of SM came up. The comment my friend made was "why are we seeing such misanthropy on SurvivalMonkey? Don't they like anyone but others who are exactly the same as they are?" This is a good questions. I think we have all noticed that the neighborhood is a little less kind an welcoming than it used to be and I wonder why. I think it probably reflects a broader segment of our society than just on our little forum. I, for one, am tired of the generalized racial, ethnic, political, and cultural negativity. Its not about being "politically correct." Its about being open to the world around us and without personal experience to the contrary, accepting that others probably have the same feelings.
