A little regretful about Facebook post


I posted something negative about feminism on Facebook earlier thinking that if anyone got offended they'll just delete me.

Well, two hours later I saw that one of my friends who I haven't spoken to in years commented on it, saying that I shouldn't say disrespectful things about women. I didn't reply back. I just deleted the whole post and pretended that I never posted it..



I've been seeking happiness for years.
I've lived in hiding from the darkness.
I've spent so many hours in question.
I've prayed that God finds me soon.
Only to realize I must find myself.

I'm curious what you said. I hate that people think being anti-feminism makes you anti-woman.

I said that feminism is the biggest cancer in America. I never said 'women' but the feminism movement.

Well women take feminism as a synonym to "women".

Why is anxiety considered a shortcome, a downside?
It just means you are more capable to live by yourself than the others.

Nothing wrong with regret. Important that it exists. Do try your best to read what you just wrote or thought before sending it away in the future, if you haven't done it before. It helps a lot with avoiding uncomfortable, unnecessary situations. Easily avoidable.

It's simple to speak one's mind on the internet, especially facebook or places you feel safe. It's harder to keep that thought inside and do nothing. Sometimes and often enough, nothing is exactly what you should do if one is not able to express positivity instead of the opposite.

How would you do that in public, would you shout it out? Would you accept the consequences? Something to think about.

That is all you said?
HA!
Don't worry about it.



People are not going to like what you believe.
Maybe next time keep your comment to yourself unless you are prepared to be confronted by someone disagree with you.
And what you said wasn't disrespectful. {But how would I know? I never saw the post.}

You cannot pretend that you never said it.
If I were you I would just let this whole thing blow over and go about your day.
The last thing I want is for you to regret and linger about what people think about you now and what you said and believe.
You did the right thing, not replying back and deleting the post. just don't answer back unless you are ready to have a debate that may become heated.

Don't worry, let it blow over and enjoy your day: )

Same. I'm not a feminist for various reasons because of what it's doing to people nowadays. The actual feminism died a long time ago.


As hard as it may be, if you really are going to share what you think then you have to know that there will be 'consequences' to them. Not everybody will agree with what you're saying even if you give points to the argument. Backing out, to me, just sends the message that the people who patronize and sometimes even harass those with a differing opinion find that their tactics work and will continue to use them. So you will have to be ready for that.

A male friend.. I never knew that they were liberal minded or pro feminist but it is what it is.

If you express your beliefs publicly, you're inevitably going to get responses.


I don't agree with what you said, but I also think Facebook arguments are pointless so I would have just unfollowed/unfriended.

I've regretted posting on Facebook and of course tons of times on the internet in general. Sometimes it's a good thing because you reconsider what you said and maybe your opinion begins to evolve.
