1) @EvilLocks is not dumb. Only one of the active posters here is average or below average, and it's not her.
2) You sometimes overreact, and this is a good example. You're exploding at her over a difference of opinion / interpretation. Chill out.
Edited to add: I've seen grey hair look hot on women. It was weird the first time that I noticed it but now I'm used to it.
Keep in mind that a huge, huge fraction of women aged 25+ dye their hair.
1) Where did I call her dumb? Or an idiot? If you read the post you just quoted, you'll see how I outlined that in the context of this discussion, I have to literally point out where I am just giving an opinion. If you read what she quoted from pjhair, he could not have been clearer that he's giving a subjective opinion, it's anecdotal, he has limited experience, he may be wrong, etc. And she says "definitely NOT TRUE". So how else are you supposed to get through to someone who can't understand a subjective opinion? I had to spell out that it was my opinion, and go one step further than pjhair and outline that I have to spell this out to her, as when it comes to this, she simply doesn't understand. Or didn't understand shortly beforehand.
I didn't call her an idiot or dumb in all ways, but she had literally just displayed that in this context, she needs things to be spelled out to her. I imagine now that because of me spelling out this error in judgement she is less likely to do it again, but only if she takes on board what I've written instead of pjhair being nice, or you defending her. I think because of what you've written in this post there's a decent chance she'll cling to it and think "exactly, people shouldn't call me dumb" and completely take no accountability for her own fault in responding to pjhair. Note that this is an assumption, and based on her own response to me earlier which was just to get sarcastic, saying that actually I look like the idiot now, and claim we agree on the same thing, when I've pointed out that we actually don't at all.
So who looks like an idiot at this point? I never called anyone an idiot, so maybe Evil can keep track of that one.
2) I wouldn't call this an explosion just because I swore a few times, maybe you're overreacting to my reaction? It's not about a difference of opinion it's about shutting down someone's opinion, which is what she attempted to do. I can only guess that if you think this is an argument about ageing or which gender looks better/worse, then you've missed the point entirely, and in that case I'm realising how little I should have cared to reply, because you've briefly browsed these posts, got an incredibly vague understanding, and decided it's time to white knight for Evil.
But most importantly, please tell me where I called her dumb, because it was absolutely justified in this context that I had to spell out what a subjective opinion is, considering how she reacted to pjhair just previously. Sometimes there's no other way but to belittle others, and sometimes they deserve it, but I never called her an idiot or dumb.
