    I wouldn't say I'm prejudiced, it's more that the same as everyone else on the planet I can be guilty of making generalisations about groups and also have my biases.

    It's like I am very pro-evidence based medicine, and as a counterpoint would say that consequently I do not trust anyone who directly profits from sales of supplements, nostrums and other ineffective treatments to sick people or even healthy people that don't require it. It's exploitation and I really hate having to pick up the pieces after the inevitable delays in getting effective treatment that result. I also can't stand having to deal with bullshitters and liars - people who don't care whether what they are saying is truthful or not and just make stuff up. I'd better stop there, I'd probably end up with a huge list if I start adding in everything I'm biased for or against. rabbit

    I don't trust guys with moustaches, they always look look like they have something to hide.
    My granny told me to never trust a man with a moustache...she believed they all grew them to hide their hairlips.

    I dislike drivers of BMWs and Pajeros. I've had both types rear end my car. The BMW driver slammed me while I was stopped at a red light!

    I'm prejudice against people who admit to voting for ACT... sometimes (rarely) I'm proved wrong, but I still maintain that person MUST have a screw loose.

    Naughty Wai for holding prejudice.
