No time to write anything significant today so… They appreciated this on Facebook, so here it is for my blog readers too.
Lately I’ve seen lots of people confuse the meanings of asocial and antisocial, so allow me to explain… (“You” in my definitions below means an anonymous plural you, of people I’ll not name. It does not refer to everybody, nor does it refer to my readers here. OK?)
I’m asocial. I know that you are assholes, so I don’t hang out with you because you are assholes.
If I were antisocial, I’d hang out with you just so I could tell you that you are assholes.
Now you know.
Seriously, I have seen many examples lately where asocial was used although the writer’s intended meaning was that of antisocial. The easy way to remember is that “anti” means against. If you are anti something, you are against or opposed to it. Asocial just means that you aren’t fucking social, maybe because people are assholes. There’s nothing wrong with not being social. Being antisocial is when you take the time out to be a cunt in public, because you hate and are against being social. Get it? Got it? Good.
