    Fuck this. Angels weren't the gentle creatures these guys seem to imagine them as, they were violent and hardcore. They were massive and closer to Cthulhu than they were to a human. People were freaked out by them, but no, apparently now they're unhygienic weirdos who find glitter on themselves and like hanging out in pools.

    Do some research that goes beyond webcomics and supernatural.

    "I found glitter on my body once and I didn't know where came from. I must be a divine being!"

    If she weighs the same as a duck, she's made out of wood and is therefore a witch.

    People like this make me depressive.Is this a prime example of extreme stupidity or are we just looking at the tip of the iceberg? Are those just a few specimens or is a large part of humanity like that? And is this mostly an american phenomenon or does it appear in europe as well?

    Lol. "Aren't I so unique and special for feelings everyone else can get?" Their stupidity truly shows how out of touch with socializing they are. I legitimately believe they believe shit like this is "special" because they get no other human interaction, just their echo-chambers on Tumblr.

    Do they sweat glitter or something? It's not that hard to get random glitter on you. All it takes is some kid who just got done their arts and crafts project to touch a doorknob.

    This sounds like something my wife' cousin would say. She'll hashtag all her Instagram and FB post with #decolonizeyourself or #endwhiteness or some other bullshit. And kicker being my wife's cousin and her family are literally the whitest people I've ever met. But the reason for that is because they think any interest in another culture is cultural appropriation. It's an insane catch 22. They seriously don't understand how this attitude leads to more racial and cultural division.

    Do people just not understand what fascism is? Because it sure seems like they don't, and just assumed that Fascism = Evil/Racist/"Anything that is not as far left as you can go on the political scale" and then went with that.

    Edit: Also, if I recall correctly, fascism is about as far as you can get from far right Libertarianism. It's just all the way left to communism, where the government controls all business, and then a little bit more and the government controls everything.

    Edit again: I did some research. It's generally placed at the top right of the political compass, which makes sense. But people who lean right on the compass generally also lean down to libertarianism, which again makes me confused as to why they connect all people who lean in any way away from the far-far-far-left to it.

    It's funny how whiteness needs to destroy itself, when blackness is even less of a thing. There are Indians who have darker skin than most black people in the US, and middle-easterners who have darker skin than many black people in the US. Neither of those groups are "black". And yet, blackness somehow still manages to encompass a wide range of skin colors that starts at "not 100% white" and extends indefinitely.

    If the existence of whiteness is 0, then the existence of blackness is surely negative.

    White people have been taught to do two things with their whiteness: embrace it and become a fascist, or pretend it doesn't exist and become a liberal. ... White people need to destroy whiteness and dismantle their places within the system of white supremacy.

    "White people either racially collectivize, or they don't. Both serve the purposes of a white racial collective society. White people need to racially collectivize but only in the way that harms them."

    Starting up a pro-black cult, and worship black people with other wierd bizarre white oddities.

    Keep preaching their own message to them, until one day i would announce a day of white suicide, where all the white people would gather and we would drink cyanide juice together.

    I wonder how many of these lunatics would actually show up. I wonder how many would drink the clean/safe kool-aid I'd provide just to see if they're really serious about it.

    Probably not that many. They seem more cintent just saying their own shit, vs actually doing anything.

A rich man spends millions to send 1000 kids to college can go fuck himself

    Perhaps there is a point to be made about how he has so much money that he can literally send 1000 people to college and not notice it, but are you really going to look at this act of kindness and have your first reaction be one of bitterness?

    Apparently so.

    I remember a story I was told once. The tide is going out and a man walks along a beach picking up starfish abandoned on the shore and chucks them back into the ocean before they die under the heat of the sun. The man does this as he walked along the beach until another man jogging down the beach asks what he's doing. After explaining he's saving the lives of these starfish the jogger tells him, "there's thousands of starfish stranded on the shore, you'll never make any difference." To this the man quietly bends down, picks up a starfish, and tosses it into the water and replies, "made a pretty big difference to that one, didn't I?"

    Exactly what percentage of this man's wealth would be an acceptable donation for you? 5? 10? 20? 50?

    What would please you? For this man to make himself homeless?

    Now, I don't think he needs hero worship heaped on him, but he should be thanked, not vilified, because he has given 1000 people a chance they most likely never would have had otherwise.

    They also don't understand finance and think net worth is the same as raw cash. 90% of Bezos's value is in a highly overvalued stock that will one day critically collapse, he actually "has" at most 20% of what he's worth on paper.

    Interesting. These dreamers are, I believe, illegal immigrants ... yes? Granted they are the children who were brought in by people who are in the country illegally, but that still leaves them as illegal immigrants.

    So what we have here is a rich couple who are going to spend 33 million on sending 1000 people to college based solely on their being in the country illegally.

    And a bunch of regressives think that's not enough.

    Let's note that there are doubtless many thousand kids who could profit from such a scholarship who will be ineligable because they are actually entitled to BE in the country.

    For some reason the word problematic comes to mind.

    Most of the time they've already made a conclusion about men and don't want to risk the chance that they'll be proven wrong. I know from arguing with a lesbian feminist (no offense to anyone but they're usually among the worst) and she told me that I don't know how it feels to be raped (I do because I have) and when I told her that I have (by both a bit and me ex girlfriend) she then told me it didn't count since I was a man and if I didn't want it then I would have stopped it.

    But of course they won't, they've already made up their mind.

  • Folamh3

    I once saw a list of examples of "male privilege" and wanted to count how many I felt I had. One was "I know that my gender will never affect my career progression" (or something along those lines).

    A few years ago, I went into a clothes shop which was hiring to hand in my CV, and the woman behind the till openly stated "we're only hiring ladies for the shop floor, sorry". And I know plenty of men who've had similar experiences.

    I suspect that if the person who wrote this "male privilege" list actually conducted a proper survey and asked people about their experiences (instead of just writing down a list of their own assumptions about gender differences, which might not be accurate), they would have realised this quite quickly.

  • scottevil110

    It's much easier for them to just TELL us what our experience is. If it seems to us that they've given an inaccurate description of it, then that's obviously just because we're so blinded with privilege that we don't even understand our own lives.
