No, I'm not against people respecting themselves. I am against people telling others that they need to respect themselves over stupid shit (e.g. humor that involves insulting yourself).
Just because someone isn't some stuck up, self-righteous, self conscious, up tight, twit doesn't mean they have no self respect. Why don't YOU show others respect -the thing you love to preach- and not tell them what is and isn't respecting themselves OR
flat out treating them like a burning festering pile of dog shit just because they aren't behaving the way you want them too -err- I mean respecting themselves
This might come as a surprise to you but, treating people like shit, doesn't make the respect themselves more. In fact, it has the opposite effect.
People that preach 'respect yourself' are like leaches, only instead of sucking blood, they suck the fun and life out of everything :\ Respect obsessed people, are the ones with the lest respect.
