    There's nothing wrong with being a happy person/in a state of frequent optimism. But there's a big difference between that and being a completely, all out, dumb, air-headed bitch that has no amount of measurable intellect.

    "OMG HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY" makes me cringe. Again - I do not have anything against life going well or being in a state of content; but I just really don't care for the people that don't have much else in them except for euphoria - it's like being too stupid to think/feel/absorb other things almost - hope that makes some sense.

    That is all.

    I agree. It's all good if you have some clever insightful way of processing bad stuff but if you're oblivious to all imperfections and "badness" then it gets on my nerves lol In reality some things do actually suck and if we can't have a proper conversation about them then we aren't going to get very far. There is such a thing as too much optimism.

    (but on the other hand, Mr/s Doom and Gloom is annoying as well).

    Eh... a lot of people are all "HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY" when they are going through something rough. For some people, myself included, it's what gets them through it (pretending nothing is wrong).

    ETA: Also, we have VERY different definitions of what makes somebody a Bimbo..... :rofl1:

    Hm a very happy person isn't what I'd call a bimbo...:rofl1: if you google it is has a totally different meaning. ;) I'm a pretty happy person so I guess you wouldn't like me in person. :p

    and how exactly do you classify or even begin to define measurable intellect?
    how happy does somebody have to be to deserve the title "bimbo?
    (and what a lovely word it is.. thrown around by people to make women that don't fit their mold of approval feel like unthinking sexual objects..and the more it's used, especially by women, the more we send out the clear message that it's an OK term to use and that ya, some women really are brainless morons with nothing in their heads except sex and handbags, which FYI.. is not true. Not for anyone.)

    people deal with things in different ways, as Jess said, some put a smile on their faces and appear euphoric all the time because they are going through a lot. or because life has taught them that that is what is expected of them. Not because they are unintelligent or unfeeling.

    Don't judge a book by it's cover. People are more complicated then what you see when you look at them.
    and consider for a moment what the world would be like or what your life would be like if somebody judged you that harshly who didn't even know you.

    "Oh but I totally know this person she is x, y, z!" .. No. you don't know her. You don't know what she truly feels or thinks or loves or the pain she has suffered or her fears and innermost secrets. You have no idea. Yet you think it's OK to stick a label on her pegging her a "slutty brainless moron" and hate her because you have deemed her stupid and too happy to even deserve kindness, compassion or understanding.

    Girls (well, people in general, but especially women) are de-humanized and judged and labeled enough in this world. We don't need it from each other.
    I bet if you really got to know this girl. Took the time to TRULY know her, you might discover you are more alike then you once thought.

    But hey, cringe away. Everyone has pet peeves. I'm just saying, please don't try to label someone as stupid or brainless or a bimbo or pass judgement because of the way they act when you know nothing about them.

    I wonder what I classify as? I'm a really easy going kind of person. Generally smiley and cheerful most the time. Especially if i don't know you well, I always try to be friendly to people I don't know.

    I like happy people. :) I really have a hard time being around downers constantly.

    I am talking about people who dismiss anything negative (whether it be something you think/feel or current event or anything else) with some generic optimistic statement. It doesn't mean they're stupid but I do find it annoying, and I see it as totally distinct from having a good attitude about things, taking things in stride, being cheerful, etc.

    I'm fine with people being annoyed at other people's erm..quirks lol
    The "Without pain, we wouldn't know happiness" thing really makes me want to kick a wall (and the person saying it sometimes depending on how much pain I'm in lol)

    I just don't think someone spouting that kind of stuff out means they deserve to be labeled a brainless bimbo unable to absorb information or contribute anything to the world.

    The whole "I'm so different from OTHER girls! Those girls are so so dumb and materialistic and cheerful and slutty and I'm so different!" thing just pisses me off to no end. It's rubs in the idea that women in general are "bad" and can be labeled as such with "rare perfect exception" and it's just a horrible line of thinking.

    Happy = unintelligent or sexually active = unintelligent or any of those things it's just so beyond wrong. Women are people *gasp* lol which means as such, our personalities and intellect aren't measured by how often we smile or how many guys we've slept with or any outside factors.

    People annoy me all the time.
    Doesn't make me any better then them or make them deserving of an offensive label. It just means I have pet peeves and they just happen to rub me the wrong way lol

    Other people being happy doesn't bug me in the slightest. I tend to wallow so I find the bubbly folks help get my head out of my ass and realize my problems really aren't that big most of the time.

    ...that's how I deal with it. I have bad social anxiety... honestly, people have come to be with bad news and I've giggled.

    There could be a lot going on in said person's life, and sometimes, that judgement -- silent as you may think it is -- is the last thing they need

    Gotta admit, after a short period of time trapped with one of the mindlessly perky (and you KNOW what I'm talking about :eek: ) I'm ready to commit hara kiri. Or assist them with it.

    I've actually done that too and I don't think we're talking about the same thing. As far as me judging them? I don't give them dirty looks or anything, if they're going to be determinedly optimistic then I usually just half-assed agree and let the conversation die, because I can't have a dialogue about something not good if they don't want to acknowledge not good.

    I'd like to be a bimbo if it meant I was HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY all the time. Better than MOAN MOAN MOAN.

    By bimbo I mean extremely perky/chipper, bouncy, deliriously happy... To a point of being unable/unwilling to be able to process negativity - like Xandra said. It's one thing to have a optimistic view of life - it's another to dodge every piece of bad news with some obscure/lofty saccharine comment. I respect the existence of those people and if their approach to life works for them, well, you go girl. - I just don't care to be in their company.

    The Henri Michaux quote in my sig sums it up pretty well (He who has rejected...).

    I try my best to be cautiously optimistic, it's alot more comfortable - I haven't energy to be perky....

    How do you know what someone else is able or willing to process? How do you know what is behind someone’s smile or saccharine comment? You don’t.

    I know a gal who is a total Pollyanna type. It used to bug me to no end. But even my being annoyed by her didn’t bother her! So annoying :D
    I’ve known this gal for over 12 years now, and you know what? She is just as deep and complex as any other human out there, she just reacts to life with a smile on her face and a positive spin. That’s who she is. And I have learned to value her for WHO she is, not what I think she should be.

    I get being annoyed by people, but the bottom line is that our reactivity to other folks’ quirks is exactly that - OUR reactivity. Its MY issue if I don’t like Pollyannas, and maybe by delving in to what it is in me that makes me reactive to them, I will learn something about myself that eventually leads to me becoming a more fully developed individual.
    Criticism and judgement is fun ’n all, but its a cop-out. It prevents us self-reflecting and removes personal responsibility.

    This is how I feel, too.

    I have immense respect for people who can go through difficult, emotionally challenging times and still keep their upbeat, positive outlook. I'm the kind of person who sulks if I have a bad hair day, so in a way I kind of resent those people. Out of jealousy. Because I wish I didn't let things get to me.

    I get irritated by people who are extremely cheerful all the time and expect everyone else to be the same way. You wanna be happy? Cool. Don't try to tell me that I can't be angry or mopey if I want.
