    -animal cruelty
    -rodeo
    -slaughter
    -PETA
    These are a few topics that are very contreversal and until you have proved an over the top argument all you going to do is make people upset. When your accusing some ones everything of some thing that's not true people will get mad they want to stand up for the truth.
    They are not mad at the OP persay but the post itself because its such a common misconception.

    PM if you want to talk more.

    No need to apologize for having an opinion, I don't think people were upset that you were expressing how you feel, it was merely a clash on a controversial subject. After all that was said, I hope you at least found a few facts that are useful, the more you know about a subject, the stronger your argument will be. I learned quite a bit from the thread myself.

    I wish you the best, and hope that you have not been discouraged from using the forum to ask questions and learn.

    You can feel anything you want. However, if you wish to persuade someone, you need logic, facts, and a coherent argument.

    Feeling 'rodeo = bad' is your choice, but you'll need more than that to convince folks who have worked in rodeos.

    You can post that everyone must wear a helmet, but you won't convince anyone by telling them they aren't mature enough to have an opinion.

    You haven't been getting buggery, but good advice: if you want to persuade someone, study, get facts, and make a logical argument. Anything else is like posting, "I hate ketchup!"

    Don't apologize. But if your going to post wildly controversial subjects you need proof/data/statistics etc. to back it up. You can't go spouting your opinion everywhere expecting people to believe you. If your going to pose an argument, back it up =).

    When you post topics on an open public forum, you have to be prepared to get opinions you don't like. It will do no good to get your feelings hurt over someone else's opinion, just as it would do them no good to get all worked up over yours.

    In the end, you have to remember that more than likely you will never meet 99% of people on the internet, so you can always switch it off and go play with your horse if you get upset, and forget about what others have said. It is easy for someone to hide behind a computer screen and spout off something hurtful, but it only matters if the person at the other end listens and reacts. So don't react, and it won't matter. Just remind yourself that they don't know you, and never will, so their opinion of you doesn't matter. You also have to remember that just because someone doesn't agree with your opinion does not mean that they don't like you personally.

    I know that's easier said than done, I have trouble with it myself from time to time.

    You're young and have strong opinions. That's all fine and dandy, but opinions aren't facts and nobody is required to agree with you, especially those of us who have had horses almost 3 times as many years as you've been alive.

    If you're going to post controversial topics, be expected to receive heated disagreements. If you can't handle them, then don't post the topics. Pretty easy to figure that out, regardless of your age!

    I'm not going to *****foot around you, just because you're young. You can't play the, 'but I'm just a kid!' card and then post a nasty, unsubstantiated opinion and not get backlash.

    I'm not your mother; I don't have to pat you on the head and tell you what a wonderful, special, precious snowflake you are, and everything that falls out of your mouth is golden.

    Instead of posting controversial topics, why not dig up some old threads and add something to them if you feel you have something to offer to the argument? Obviously, don't go around pulling up the oldest most worthless threads you can find, but if you feel you have a point that may not have been stated, go ahead and post in an older thread. Just searching any one of the topics Tasia listed will offer you pages and pages of debate threads. If you post a new thread, be prepared to take the blame for anything said wrong or any false accusations.
