Well, yes, that's true, but if you can't choose to feel another way, then isn't that saying that certain posts have the power to make people upset?
They bring it out in them.. each person is unique but we all have things we react to, and can't change that, and in some areas people tend to have common reactions, so I would think.. you can do something knowing that it's going to "make someone"
What I mean is, we all have different physical pain thresholds too, but if someone smacked me, I would say that they hurt me, even though someone else may not have been bothered by it.
I'm not going to take responsibility for my reaction to being hit. So I'm wondering where the fine line is about "making me feel" and "I feel"
