I was taught that hate was too strong an emotion to hold on to, and so I've grown to unlearn saying that I hate things casually. However, there are some situations where even hate isn't a strong enough word. I can't find any other emotion to describe what I feel towards rapists, so I can comfortably say that I hate them.
What are some situations/places/people that you definitely hate and why? (serious answers only)

I hate more things than I should but in this day and age, I believe it is justifiable.
I hate the way BLM is being used to manipulate and hurt black people (keeping them living in poverty and distracting from real issues). If you support BLM, you don't support black people in my book.
I hate the way kids are growing up in a very confusing, judgemental world. I thought it was bad when I was a kid and I can't imagine what it is like now. So much focus on gender and skin color now, on top of having the best phone, the right trends in fashion... What a nightmare.
I hate how easily people have become switched on to Marxist behavior and thinking. I know many do believe they are doing the right thing or thinking the right way but history can show them the truth.
And I hate that the truth and actual scientific measure have become less important as people view feelings to have a higher value than both.
Could you expand on how BLM is hurting black people? I don't belong to the states so I don't quite understand the situation in a way a person living there would. Thank you for your answer.

It is founded in Marxism. Karl Marx was a man who was outwardly racist and thought of black folks as being good for nothing beyond mindless labor. BLM is funded by mainly white people who do not understand the culture or struggles of the average black family in America. It started as a good cause to shed light on police brutality which has been an issue for a long while. But now it is more about virtue signaling for white people than actually helping black communities. All the money they raised, only a small fraction has actually gone into black communities to help with issues like rundown neighborhoods, high crime rates, poverty, poor school systems, and so on.
BLM focuses on pointing the finger instead of acknowledging those who live in fear for their lives on a day-to-day basis because of crime-stricken ghettos where violence is accepted as normal and acceptable behavior. The focus has shifted away from helping those who need it to using the movement to hurt other people which in turn, leaves many black families and communities voiceless again. The focus is all about being anti-cop and anti-white which is only fueling more racism and further divide. I grew up in a mixed neighborhood and come from a mixed family, it is only now I am seeing a shocking division between people and people being judged by the color of their skin and not the context of their character. The only thing that matters right now is what skin color you have, not whether you are right or wrong in your actions. I grew up admiring Martin Luther King Jr. and I have to say, he would be severely disappointed in the way things have shifted.

Good question. We all have places, people, situations to hate. It's common to all. I hate people who let down me. But at this age, I understood that hating is not the only way to respond to situations / react the people. Most of the religions in the world teach us how to recover from those kinds of emotions.
Being let down can definitely induce feelings of hatred in individuals. I admire how you have grown to deal with your response to being let down. Thank you for your answer.

Hate is a strong word, so it's something I only use to describe something I absolutely hate. I try not to say it in regards to an actual person, unless that person was Hitler or someone like him. I used to say I hated someone like Justin Bieber. And honestly, I don't hate him, I just don't like him. After that, I kind of thought, let's not say hate unless it's a truly hateful person.
One thing I hate that does come to mind though, are wasps. Seriously, I don't mind me a bee here or there, they mind their own business for the most part. But wasps just like to be a pain. They are literal pests that don't do anything. I don't even know if they eat other insects to help there. They damage houses/homes/properties with their nests/hives, and from what I hear, sting whenever the hell they want to.
And in the summer, they tend to come out in droves. I don't get it.
Oh, one other thing I hate, is how colleges charge you so much to attend their school. i thought the point was to get people into good jobs, not to put them into debt.
Oddly enough I had the same realisation about Justin Beiber as I grew up! Colleges really do charge a bomb for education and this definitely keeps people from pursuing the fields they are interested in at an advanced academic level. Thank you for your answer.

I hate gossip and conspiracies.
It's gotta be facts or nothing.
Life is much simpler this way
Agreed! Facts or noting seems like a great maxim for life. Thank you for your answer.

As you rightly mentioned, hate is a strong word and it seems to be all around us today. I`m trying hard not to use it at all even when it`s justifiable; but as you and I know, that’s a tall order especially with the weird and despicable stuff happening across the globe day in day out. There are times we can’t help but spew it out when we think things were taken or pushed too far. It`s extremely difficult to ignore the waves of senseless acts of hate, each (like the rape you mentioned) seemingly more horrendous than the preceding one.
I for one can`t stand people who take joy in the miseries of others. I hate those who take delight in kicking others when they are down. The level of disrespect and heartlessness it takes for someone to do this is unfathomable to me. These are the people who continue to shatter my dream of a beautiful future devoid of hate and violence.
I’m with Godwin on the conspiracy thing as well. What’s the point? No matter how unsubstantial and stupid it sounds, there are people (and tons of them out there) who will take it to heart and think it`s true. I honestly think one big reason a huge percentage of people are strongly against the covid-19 vaccination or skeptical or apprehensive about taking it, is mainly because of tons of conspiracy news that were sent out on the internet or showed live on TV screens.
I think one strategy that could help us eradicate this pandemic of hatred is knowing and understanding the reasons behind it.
I wholeheartedly agree. The world seems to get more tragic as time passes, and it is unfortunate, to say the least. Thank you for your answer.
