I seem angry?

Hi.  Thanks for telling me that I seem angry.  I’d like to take this moment to clear your misconception up.  You see, I don’t seem angry at all.  I actually am angry.

There are actually reasons that I’m angry.  I tend to get angry when I feel that someone, anyone, is actively hurting me, people I care about, or both.  I think that’s a perfectly valid emotion to experience under those circumstances.  Wouldn’t you agree?

Wait, no, you don’t agree.  That much is obvious from your behavior.  You see, you haven’t bothered to ask me why I’m angry.  You haven’t bothered to listen to me explain why I’m angry.  You’ve simply tried to shut me down by telling me that I “seem” angry — which I don’t, because I am angry.  You’ve effectively tried to emotionally manipulate me into feeling guilt over my anger, which makes it perfectly clear that you don’t think I have a right to be angry.  You think I should just bend over and take whatever someone — maybe even you — has done to wrong me.  And now, I’m not just angry, I’m fucking pissed.

I hope that clears things up for you.  But just so we’re clear, if it doesn’t, I’m too fucking pissed to fucking care.
