    So we've all heard the term, right?
    The assumption is it refers to:

    Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

    Translation:
    Treat others how you'd like to be treated.

    BUT... What if we've made the wrong assumption?
    Maybe The Golden Rule means something different to you.

    So, let's brainstorm!

    The one with the gold makes the rules.

    And I never really believed in "Treat others how YOU want to be treated." What if I'm suicidal? Or sadistic? Does that mean I should hurt you because that's how I want to be treated?

    What if I'm heterosexual and you're homosexual, so I keep treating you as if you like the opposite sex?

    Really, it should be, "Treat others how THEY want to be treated."

    That saying is supposed to mean 'you have personal preferences (physical, sexual, whatever), so you should let others have their own as well'. What you describe in your examples would be forcing your own views on others, which is the opposite of the 'rule'.
    ...And I never really believed in "Treat others how YOU want to be treated."

    My golden rule is: "never do today, what you can also postpone tomorrow." I am not very responsible.

    And that's exactly my problem with the "rule". It doesn't say what it means, and it doesn't mean what it says.

    How about this:

    What if my personal preference is to treat others opposite of their personal preference? (Because I'm a jerk.)

    Technically, I'm obeying the "rule", but that's not "what it's suppose to mean"...

    And how about this:

    I'm an A-Type personality and constantly want to be given attention to non-stop. Does that mean I give non-stop attention to the introvert who does not want attention?

    The problem with the saying, "Treat others how you want to be treated" is that it really means:

    "Treat others how you would want to be treated as long as that person is okay with how you treat them and it is generally socially acceptable." That's what it's really saying, but of course it doesn't sound as nice.
