-They are a sweet, friendly, caring person until you disagree with them (then they turn into a raging bitch)-They manipulate their way through life using their "sexuality"-They do anything they can to win your heart until you you marry them (and then they get fat, nasty, and refuse to give blow jobs)-They act as if you criticize them, it is a crime against humanity (but they can criticize "pig guys" all day long and it's cool)-They are your soul mate and one and only until your first fight (then you must kiss their ass to get them back even though they are half the reason for the fight!)-Many many more examples....what would you include?
A good writer doesn't just stir up discontent and express opinions, a good writer changes the way their readers think. You shouldn't add in statements like "in my opinion" or "I think" because those statements don't belong in serious literature.
I think maybe you're writing these guys off a little too easily. If you're not persuading them then you're not doing a good enough job as a writer. Instead of getting upset about it try to increase your skill as a writer.
You also said once you thought all people were good people and if you just sit them down and explain things to them they'll come around, but you don't seem to be doing that very much.
Some people are hard to work with but that just means if you win them over you've done an even more impressive job.
