Is extremly... eh... stupid. People who call others sheep really come off as arrogant and self rightous, imo. In my experience people who use the term get some feeling of empowerment, thinking, "Yeah, I know whats REALLY up! And all you stupid sheep just live life with your head in the sand! You need to WAKE UP!". When in fact, nobody i've ever known that has that attitude, is really, anything but a self rightous ass hole who doesnt really help anybody. And the people they accuse of being sheep actually do have a good idea about how the world works, and they have a better grip on reality. The main differance is they focus on being happy and helping others and doing their best to make the world a better place. And the people who use the term sheep, really just seem to want to bring people down and feel superior. Its really annoying. Also they think they know so much more than everybody but all they seem to do is yell about it on the internet, try to scare everybody and make people feel stupid but they dont do anything about the issuses that they think they are SO informed about. However I do know that not everybody who feels that most people need to "wake up" use the term sheep. These are the people who do actually wish to help. And I think these people also have a much better grip on things and are much eaiser to listen to than someone calling people names. Basicly I just think the term "sheep" has become derogatory and ridiculous. I've even seen it used on both sides, like "zomg you think america is all kittens and puppy dogs lolz you stoopid sheep!", and "haha people believe everything they read online, dumb sheep.". So yeah, I petition that the term "Sheep" "sheeple" or anything like it become accepted as total douchebag terminology. Thank you. Also want to add that for people who actually do live with "their head in the sand". Who cares? Life is short. The world is pretty terrible. And for a lot of people, there really isnt anything they can do about it. So whats the problem with spending the little time they have here trying to believe that the world isnt all that bad and just live a happy life? Do they really deserve to be called names and become the victim of some miserable assholes trying to bring people down?
