'Cause Everybody Hates...Sometimes

Monday, February 22, 2010 17:12 GMT

WILDOMAR, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Everyone hates somebody.

Luckily, haters can vent their frustrations on or by posting their personal stories about people they just can’t stand.

John Perkins created the forums 10 years ago and says most hate stories still come from pissed off exes.

Many gripe about the opposite sex on the corresponding site, though far more women diss other women than guys hate on guys.

Married folks – from newlyweds to those hitched for decades – are also haters, often posting stories about how their husband or wife is a jerk.

Perkins says that for some, it’s finally the chance to “unburden themselves” from years of pent up anger in a supportive environment.

While people who hate people are the most common people in the world, some choose to loathe stranger things.

Perkins says one man confessed his hatred for the Snuggle Bear – the cute, cuddly mascot from the fabric softener ads.
