Definitions of Common Words

I was called the following words because I expressed an opinion that differed politically with them. I'm not sure if this individual understands the definitions of the words, so here they are.

ig-no-rant   –adjective
1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned.
2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
3. uninformed; unaware.
4. due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.

hate-ful  –adjective
1. arousing hate or deserving to be hated: the hateful oppression of dictators.
2. unpleasant; dislikable; distasteful: She found her domestic chores hateful.
3. full of or expressing hate; malignant; malevolent: a hateful denunciatory speech.

un-ed-u-cat-ed  –adjective
- not educated.

I am well aware of the politics and vision that this person has and I disagree with him, so "ignorant" does not apply to me.

I like the 2nd definition of "hateful." I was voicing my opinion that this politician was "unpleasant and distasteful" to me, so I guess that I am "hateful" in that respect. The other two definitions do not apply.

I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree from The Ohio State University. I graduated with a 3.6 grade point average. "Uneducated" does not apply to me.

This person removed me as their friend on Facebook because of this political dissimilarity. This person also let me know that I misspelled a certain word. Thank you and good "riddance."


  1. I saw that on FB and it wasn't pretty! I share your political view, but loathe talking politics. Sorry I didn't say anything on FB. I'm about as nonconfrontational as they come. I don't think anything you said was "ignorant" or "hateful". You're allowed to say you don't like someone without being deemed a hateful person. America is the land of the free, or at least it is supposed to be. We are allowed to have differences in opinion. Sorry you had to go through that, but at least that is 1 less person you have to worry about attacking you when you express your opinion on your very own page. I thought that was what the ignore feature on FB was for, but what do I know?! ;cp

  2. I have to also add that attacking someone because of a typo is ridiculousy childish.


Thank you so much for visiting our family adventure.
