While I agree that some of FordGuy's comments about you have been unkind and not in keeping with the gentleman that I believe him to be, I don't think it is helpful for you to be name-calling either. It is always worth keeping the moral high ground by refusing to respond unkindly to unkind comments. I think perhaps FordGuy thinks you are oblivious and haven't been picking up on his comments. I hope that if he realises that he is upsetting you, that he will stop, but if you escalate things by name calling back then it may make things worse.

I'm a total loner who tends not to have that much to do with others, although there are times I will try to bring people more round to my way of thinking, feeling and so on. But in the end, they'll be what they'll be and there's nothing I can do about it. I can be very empathetic, which is an emotional thing, rather than accepting, or tolerant, which are as I see them, more cerebral phenomena.

You want so hard to be accepted as what you are not. You try too hard.

I know calling him names will not help or calling him all kinds of names I can think of such as him being racist

I am female no matter what anybody says there is nothing I can do about but live my life and maybe at times I just cannot stand being insulted or put down I do stand up for myself even around here as well or I try my hardest to ignore it as well but my emotions get the best of me I am an emotional person I have this disability I have to deal with everyday I want to be upbeat and happy all the time so many problems in my life including panic attacks and anxiety I want Survey Central to be a safe place for me but as a girl I had those times that boys teased me and picked on me I have always been a girl and now a grown woman I have a hard time with men and boys all because I am a girl

Depending.

I guess so. I think I mostly don't really know how others are, so accepting is more of a loose thing that is based of vague info.

I'm vaguely loose... is that acceptable?

Yes, usually. I can't change people - that's up to them.

Usually. Minor flaws can be overlooked.

I can usually accept others as they are.
But with some they are vexations to me and I just avoid them, as I figure I am to them.

Yes if they are honest about who they are.

I seem to be getting vaguer and looser as I get older.
I have no choice but to accept this.

No. I think it's reasonable to expect positive change from people. It's ridiculous to say "This is how I am; I am never changing, either for good or for bad." That being said, the behaviors that I would want to see change are ones that are harmful to the person or to others; harmless quirks or things that might bug me but do no damage aren't worth getting bent out of shape over. And I would never refuse to accept someone for certain aspects of their being, such as their sexuality, their medical status, or their race.

I should add: "accept" is primarily a mental state on my part. I likely wouldn't act on my inability to accept someone's traits. I would keep it to myself. But it would affect how I felt about the person.

No. I tend to not accept intolerance, ironically. I will accept that they exist but I certainly dislike expressions of superiority or oppression.

Yeah. This is something that I strive to do. I think it comes quite naturally, but sometimes I have to make more of an effort.
