My pet peeve: People demanding that they receive an apology when they've been wronged. An apology given merely to get someone else off my back or because someone coerced it out of me is no apology at all. Trust me and give me the chance to offer an apology freely. It will mean a lot more.

It's the mentally ill attempting to insult the mentally healthy by calling them 'sane'. There are a lot of other examples of this particular phenomenon.

Plus in that instance they can't even be consistent. They say gender is a social construct, which means gender has no reality outside social convention, but then they try to claim that such and such got assigned the "wrong" gender at birth, as if it's possible to talk about right or wrong gender before socialization has had a chance to occur.

Peeve:  Self-hating [insert group of choice].  Self-hating Jews and Roman Catholics are the worst.

When someone says "contrite" like it means the same thing as "trite."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

I find it safest to just ask people what sex organs they were born with. There are now so many gender identities out there that it overwhelms me.

Peeve: I despise Western cartoons that ape the conventions of comedic anime, like doing the "sweat drop" thing when someone is embarrassed, inserting a chimp noise when they're startled, or using chibi characters in cutaway segments.  Examples would be that horrid Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon or the even worse Teen Titans Go!.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Hypocrisy. I hate working in the hipster town of Emeryville/Oakland where the same hipsters who pay lip service to concepts like charity and helping the poor are the first ones demand that security have homeless people removed from the outside of their luxury apartments just for scavenging through the dumpsters. They are literal Lazaruses at your doorstep and you won't even let them look through your garbage. Detestable. I remember once when the boss herself was sent out to tell the homeless people to leave and they all started calling her white devil and neo-Nazi, which is kind of funny because she was a German immigrant and was being mean to them. I just tell them to clean up their mess afterward.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.
