Someone said :
I really think people mix principles up with being little cunts but what do I know ..
Silly principle can come across as cuntish, indeed.
And more oft' than not, they probably are! Especially mine.
But surely you do some things out of habit or principle, which you are unwilling to think about changing (especially when they have little to no impact on others); and some of these can be perceived by others as being pointless or silly.
If the answer is "no", it is probably that you are simply not aware of how they are perceived by others!
