Stop calling yourself an empath, you self-important douchecanoe.

Post by Rocinante on 2017-09-08, 12:21

There's a trend I've noticed in the last couple years.  People calling themselves empaths.  This is, as far as I can tell, almost entirely a female thing, but holy hell, there's a lot of women using their overpowering empathy as some sort of excuse for their irrational emotional outbursts.  Almost always when I notice a trend like this, I can easily find backlash against it on the old reliable interwebs, Not here.  A google search of "stop calling yourself an empath" revealed nothing but a bunch of self aggrandizing bullshit about how being an empath is HARD!  and "I feel other peolpe's feelings and it's a superpower, but it's also kind of killing me." I did find this nice blog post that sums up what I think of it.  You're not an empath, you're a fucking narcissist. And you're probably stupid because you believe in magic.

She's a lot nicer about it than I am.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

If it can't be explained to me in a sentence or two, I'm to old to be interested. Unless there's naked people involved.

People who claim that they are so in touch with other peoples feelings that they actually feel them.

Are you guys serious? Empath is to empathy as psychopath is to psychopathy.

That said, I've never heard anyone describe themselves as such. Makes me wonder what sort of people Roc is interacting with...

Sounds rough. Being an empath could kill you.

I do not know what a douchecanoe is, but if you use the word douchecanoe you are probably a douchecanoe.

It does seem like something a Canadian would say. Roc is clearly a Canadian living among us and accidentally outed himself with this thread.
