So, you had a 1:1 ratio of women saying they wanted random compliments to women saying they don’t want compliments and that somehow puts the women that don’t want compliments in the minority group? Your logic needs to make more sense in your arguments, bro.
And then you go and it’s just a bowl of chips with no dip sitting in the middle of the table
Whenever I see people claiming to be “otherkin” I honestly can only imagine it coming from a twelve year old. I mean, I think we all wanted to be something other than human when we were twelve, and Tumblr is a great place to pretend to be that. Just a thought I felt like sharing, don’t mind me.
“It looks like a heart at first glance”
Bitch, what kind of weird lumpy hearts have you been looking at?
I’m being a baby for not wanting to be approached by strange people on the street? I think you missed my point that it’s all about setting and context. I don’t want to talk to random strangers on the street and I don’t want them talking to me. I don’t care if they’re praising me as their goddess, it’s just an unpleasant situation I don’t want. If somebody wants to comment on my body they can keep it to themselves, thank you.
You know, that’s actually a really great point. This video was definitely missing something when it came to making an actual point.
“I’m guessing it’s only creepy when men do it”
Oh I love when people feel the need to make assumptions like this. For the record, no, it’s not only creepy when men do it. Unwanted conversation/compliments is creepy and uncomfortable, bottom line. So they cut down 10 hours of footage into two minutes, so what? Did you want them to post the whole 10 hours? They still mentioned just how many times they were approached throughout the 10 hours (over 100 times) and they cut the footage down to a just a sample of the things said. The “friendly greeting” point is moot because as I already said I find unwanted conversation like that uncomfortable and inappropriate. And, well, it’s entirely reasonable to think no women talked to her that entire time. How many women you don’t know approached you for random conversation on the street? The most I get is old ladies asking me for directions. Anecdotal evidence, I know, but I think it’s something to think about.
Harassment? No, but what is depicted in this video isn’t exactly a good thing either. I think the biggest thing people are missing is context and setting. If you are walking down the street, you most likely don’t want random people talking to you. At all. It’s unwanted attention when you often just wanna get where you’re going undisturbed. Guess what? Getting called beautiful by complete strangers and having them approach you and start talking to you is actually really creepy. You don’t know their intentions, you don’t know if they’re going to hurt you, it’s just an uncomfortable experience that nobody wants. Saying “Hello” is fine but anything beyond that is actually really inappropriate. Go to a bar if you want to talk to random pretty girls.
That’s an interesting perspective, but then wouldn’t this sort of thing happen to men just as often as women if that were the case?
I think a lot of people here are missing the actual problem and why a lot of people are pissed off. The problem here isn’t that Meghan is singing about praising other body types (which nobody is complaining about really) the problem is she seems completely incapable of doing it without knocking skinny people at the same time and telling them they’re the unattractive ones/the ones guys don’t wanna bang. Essentially the “real women have curves” mindset. And yes, this does count as a problem. We need body positivity that doesn’t hail one body type as the superior one, and this is not it.
Wasn’t Oppressed Gamergater also frontpaged at one point? And put in the top banner at that? Sorry, but if you’re trying to point out bias then the attempt has failed.
I can sympathize with you. I’ve known people who dated crazies and believed the only reason they dated was because of the mental instability, but I can assure you that is not the reason. I truly believe anyone can find companionship, and someday you’ll find someone that isn’t crazy (or perhaps is just the right kind of crazy)
Very good point
Pretty girls that play games is still considered a novelty?
That is actually really scary.
FCKH8 does something tacky for the purpose of getting attention and making money. So, what else is new?
For the same reason everyone is moe-fying everything right now.
Come on man, I find the colored noses cute
The first panel makes it look like he’s looking at a computer monitor and I honestly find that kinda funny.
No, I get sick too if I don’t eat my breakfast slowly enough. I think the importance of breakfast has less to do with energy (although I get hungry as fuck if I skip, I honestly don’t know how others do it) and more to do with your metabolism though.
I notice the photos don’t include breakfast. Perhaps this could say something about the importance of breakfast?
Hawaiiansquirrel put it really well, but of course the lecture police had to come in to ruin the fun.
The decision to drop the bombs in Japan was not racist bs. The decision to put asian americans in camps and let the germans or italians go free, however, was full of racist bullshit. I don’t agree with the idea of putting people into camps anyway, but the fact that they focused only on the Japanese even though Germany and Italy were America’s enemies as well at the time is something that shockingly get’s talked about very little. You can tell how uneducated SJWs are about WWII because they never use this information against white people even though it’s handed to them on a silver platter.
Yes, as horrible an atrocity as the atomic bombs were, they potentially saved thousands if not millions of Japanese and American lives.
You know what? I actually really like this one. This is the first new trend in a while that has made me feel anything other than “meh”
