What do you argue about more than any other subject?
Every one of us has something that will get us railed up more than anything. Something that will anger us when others bring it up or speak for/against it.
What sets you off? Which subject will anger or upset you more than anything?
Definitely football and boxing, these sports give you plenty to argue about!
What a great question. For me, it's ethnocentrism! The whole idea that one person's culture or ethnicity is somehow better than someone else's. Or, that you can judge an entire country or race based on your interaction with just one or two people. How arrogant!
Great question! Hmmm...I think I could say that I have more than one answer. It depends on who the person is, too. I think I get angry/frustrated when somebody refuses to listen and acknowledge my perspective/experience/understanding of a matter. For example, if I find a particular task difficult to accomplish and somebody tells me, "It's not hard...all you have to do is..." If it's hard for me--it's hard for me--even if it's easy for somebody else.
I also get upset when people have an very strong opinion and they state it in an arrogant manner as absolute fact, yet it is clear that they don't have a well-rounded understanding of the subject and haven't done their research, yet their mind is made up and if you disagree, you are unintelligent.
I also don't like getting lumped into generalizations and stereotypes. Somebody I care about a lot watches the news all the time and she sees what certain groups are saying/doing and lumps me into those groups and accuses me of being like this, that and the other. Mostly this happens when it comes to my faith. I know there are some crazy Christians out there and I know there are a lot of hypocritical, judgmental, religious people out there, too, but this doesn't mean all people of faith are like this!. Just because they call themselves a Christian and I call myself a Christian, doesn't mean that I'm like them or they are like me. We might agree that there is a God but we may act very differently because we have different values of what is important and how to live our faith out in everyday life. It's like if a person has only driven a Ford Focus and has seen others drive a Ford Focus and the drivers of Ford Focus's tend to be angry drivers and violate traffic laws all the time and the car breaks down all the time and you get ripped off when you take a Ford Focus to the mechanic. And I drive a Honda Civic but the person concludes that "all cars are the same" and therefore judges me as being like the Ford Focus group when in reality, I'm not like that at all! (By the way...I have nothing against Ford or Honda...just an example!)
Ahhh...your question has inspired yet more Hub ideas for me to write about. Thanks!!!
Education and discipline for my children. Except from that, I am at peace with whatever people want to be and do.
The existence of extraterrestrial life. The truth is out there!
The abuse of children................there need not be bruises, busted noses or blackened eyes.
Having said, these things...........I do not think that a "spanking" is abusive...........I do not. I would not "report" a parent who picked their child up by the beltloops, and gave them 2-3 whacks on the backside to get their attention, and make a point.
Great question. It def. depends upon the person, I don't have any one subject that tips me off. I guess people who are intolerant in any sense. homosexuality, racist, etc.
Government practices, this is the question that makes me argue most of the time.
people who believe everything they hear and have no critical thinking
i argue more about world politics and regional and national politics. i am passionate about the issue of politics
I'm not sure. . . I say money, but my wife says cleaning up the kitchen. . .
Our major arguments are for the most part over finances, and mis-understandings of what has been said.
Actually I have quite a few. But perspectives is one of them, also "what the government should do". I would say the government and society right now. Along with the comment "people aren't stupid". Oh! I could debate on that for two days, no breaks!
i try to argue about the classics,...
politics, religion, and her/him
aint that enough? ha!

Have you noticed that it is only Christians who constantly argue about God and his will? Why do members of other religions have a consentaneous interpretation of the Creator and his will?

It seems that the more left wing, liberal or progressive the country gets its becoming a divisive country that resembles a cesspool of character.
