Thumper says... by KippyTheGreat Thumper says... by KippyTheGreat
I'm surprised I couldn't find this exact same stamp 500 times. It's probably out there and I'm just too stupid to locate it.

I just can't believe we've forgotten this most basic of advice given to us by one of the most adorable little bunnies ever.

IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE, DON'T SAY NOTHING AT ALL.

Okay, double negatives aside, this is one of the best guidelines to follow...ever.

Now, this includes saying unkind words directly to a person and saying unkind words in general on your own page. Yes, I know. Freedom of speech. What a wonderful idea. But how necessary is it to go on about something you hate?

Yes. I break this rule. I can be a very big hypocrite sometimes. I'm working on changing that, and while I do I ask that you all do the same.

It's fun to go on about stuff you hate. I have lots of stuff I hate. But is it really necessary to post how much you dislike something? Instead of showing things in a negative light, why not put something positive in it's place?

Hate Twilight? Read a book you really, really love instead.
Hate fanart? Just enjoy your wonderful, original creations.
Hate what BP oil has done to the gulf? Support the clean-up instead.
Hate abortion? Just keep on promoting pro-life.
Hate religion? Be supportive of your fellow athiests/agnostics instead.
Hate all this ridiculous hate? Show nothing but love :heart:

It's easy to hate and to ridicule.
It's rewarding to love and support.

Make it your goal to never insult someone/something again: be it on your own page, in real life, everywhere. Try. Just try :heart:

Basically the logic of all vicious dictatorships everywhere, but Thumper says it best!

Criticism shouldn't be silent because it offends people. If there's something wrong with someone's personal philosophy, or their actions, they should be criticized for it.

Critique and criticism are actually really, really good - the goal there is to point out a not-so-good quality and help a person improve. "Nice" doesn't always have to mean "sugar-coated". This stamp is directed towards the outright insults, when there's nothing to gain from what's being said.

Like what you just said is criticism. It doesn't agree with what I wrote, but it doesn't attack it. [And I'd have you agree with you. People should be told when they do wrong, it just has to be done in the most respectable, mature way possible.]

Not that I don't agree with you...

But it's been a while since I've seen Bambi. :XD: Didn't Thumper say this, including the double negatives, just to avoid getting in trouble and kind of an excuse to say as many mean things as he wanted?

Or maybe I'm looking into it too much...

This is why rabbits can't be good role models.

They look cute but they're out to get you.

Tell that to the girls that claim to be my friend and do nothing but talk shit behind my back and treat me like shit to my face.

I know, that's not saying anything nice. But really, they've pretty much ruined my self esteem and all that jazz, so I can afford one rude comment.

The truth isn't always nice :|
Yeah, some people who treat others like crap sort of deserve those kind of comments.

Yeah. And they insult the guys I like too! It's like, okay, if you have something against me, fine, but leave my crushes out of it.

Exactly!! It's like, "Okay, I don't care if he's [not your idea of cute/kinda chubby/old enough to be my dad], he's beautiful to me! I didn't ask your damn opinion of him! So leave him alone!"
