a situation where the parties hate a person regardless if they are happy or sad
Emo-haters are a definite example of a no-win situation. They hate when the artist is sad, and they hate when the artist is happy. Get over on hating on an artist who decides to sing about life's imperfections; if they sang about how happy they were, you'd hate that, too.
