If pedantic means annoying Jew, then yes, you come off pedantic as a motherfucker.
I thought it meant hung like a pendulum. I always considered myself as pedantic but with a feminine side too.

Some people think I come off like a pedantic know-it-all. I usually respond by writing a few paragraphs on the meaning of the world pedantic, and then the origin of the expression "know-it-all". And then I carefully explain why I am neither of those things.

But then people say why do you write words like "therefore" and "vis-a-vis" in your comments? The reason for this is that all of my comments are carefully crafted and go through a formal revision process. But I also talk like that in real life, which is why it's difficult for me to make or to keep friends.

Thanks for listening guys. No need to respond unless it's with supportive, emotionally mature replies.
if u think im reading paragraphs u cray

A pedant originally just meant a schoolmaster. It acquired pejorative senses because of the sort of people who don't like schoolmasters.

When we grew up and went to school, there were certain teachers who would hurt the children any way they could. By pouring their derision upon anything we did. Exposing every weakness no matter how carefully hid by the kid.

But in town it was well known when they went home at night their fat and psychopathic wives would thrash them within inches of their lives.,..

Yelling things like, "You pedant know-it-all!"
