Everyone has ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด. Some opinions are more informed than others. Most people donโ€™t recognize this.โฃ

We live in an age where anyone can hop on Google and find and answer to their questionโ€ฆ You know, the infamous ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜Ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ.

If you lack such knowledge and intelligence, your remain ignorant to your short-comings. โฃ

Itโ€™s a fucked situation really, and essentially the reason I refuse to engage with anyone displaying this type of behavior. I just donโ€™t have the time, or the incentive to undo their steadfast beliefs. โฃ
