Ah, yes, raising awareness for a horrible disease through a fun trend is just the definition of stupid.
Ok I’m sorry but when did egoraptor ever say in his Zelda video that everyone’s opinions should reflect his? A lot of people imitate his opinions/feel vindicated when a popular person shares their opinions because the world is full of overly impressionable shits and so everyone bandwagoned on his opinion, but he never said his word was law. I can’t say anything for the SS controls since I haven’t played it but I also find it a poor argument that his opinion is invalid because he just “sucks at playing modern games” where’s your proof of that exactly? From game grumps where he doesn’t even give a shit how well he’s playing? I’m sorry if I sound like I’m getting overly defensive about this but criticisms like that really bother me for some reason.
I’m just so confused right now.
Ok but in all seriousness making something tasty when you’re home alone is extremely satisfying.
Whether or not the videos count as appropriation is highly debatable, but in general appropriation is considered a bad thing because it usually involves one culture taking a piece of another culture without fully understanding it’s importance/meaning and generally making a mockery of it. A good example is in America it’s acceptable to wear “Indian” feathered headdresses to parties/sports games/as a fashion statement when in reality it’s considered a sacred part of Native American culture and having other people treat it as a casual piece of clothing is like if other cultures wore a pope hat as a party hat. Of course, there’s plenty of examples that aren’t as harsh like chinese takeout generally not being real Chinese cuisine but even though it’s not always bad that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good.
(Looks down at past comments) Why, yes, you did. Still, if people can post the same reaction image 50 times on an article I think I’m allowed to post the same opinion someone else has. It’s nice to know my opinion isn’t alone.
I seriously think the second one was sarcastic, and possibly the first one too.
Even tumblr gets sick of tumblr.
I actually read “accordion” the first time, and I usually fall for these things
Slapping black women’s asses on stage and saying you love being a part of black culture when all you do is twerk and do raunchy things is cultural appropriation. Having multiple forms of dance in your video including twerking (which featured people of multiple races doing it) is not cultural appropriation. I also find it funny that nobody cared that breakdancing was a part of the video, as one could argue that’s an even more prominent and important part of black culture than twerking is. It’s apparent that this guy on twitter that started this stupid thing needs to learn the concept of researching the subject before criticizing it. Saying “I haven’t seen the video but I don’t need to” is just about the stupidest thing to say when making an argument.
The video is bad though. It would’ve been cool if Taylor actually performed all these dances and did them well, but instead she was just fucking around like “Teehee look at me I’m so cute and quirky cus I don’t know how to do these dances”.
That is very true. Nothing makes something more well known in the internet than when you try to censor it/
Ok so I can get people being upset by her manipulating the media and using sketchy methods to get her game out there, but is it just me or are a lot of people taking this whole thing a little too personally? I mean, it’s no secret that there’s a lot of corruption in the game review industry so I’m failing to see how this instance is so much more different from any other instance where people paid publishers to give positive reviews? It’s also bothering me that a lot of people are also so caught up in her personal relationships. My heart goes out to her ex boyfriend, but it’s really not the internet’s business how many guys she cheated on him with and seeing the internet take it upon themselves to harass a woman over what happened in a personal relationship is not something I can get behind. The internet is treating this like a war on video game corruption, but really this isn’t even an organized battle. I don’t know, I guess I’ll just stay in the neutral zone for the time being.
Welp, watching two videos of this game has caused me to to stay up all night because every time I closed my eyes I saw those fucking freaky eyes and teeth. GG, game.
I tried to watch this guy’s LP… Too spoopy, man, too spoopy
To be fair, though, a lot of Big Bang Theory advertisements/merch features illustrations of the characters rather than just photoshops of them, and I can 100% get behind that
Where is your god now
Alrighty people, the hateful comments towards Don and Molly on articles have to stop. Posts like that are considered spam and a lot of these posts blatantly break the rule of being friendly. Hashtags are the way trends start on the internet now. Just about every important site uses them and they’re really the only thing even slightly notable happening on the internet these days. The staff have to keep making articles and you’re just shooting the messenger here. Don’t like them? Tough titties, don’t comment on the articles with your Don and Molly spam and they won’t be trending.
“Then again, they’re an arsehole, so whatever”
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up
In this case, the person criticizing rap didn’t just say he didn’t like it (which would’ve been fine) but called the people that enjoyed it morons. Seeing as rap was born from, is created by, and is mostly listened to by black people he’s essentially calling black people morons. Maybe a bit of a stretch, but I’d still say it’s pretty fuckin racist
Say whatever you want about tumblr SJWs, the tumblr fanartists are what make life worth living.
I would say it’s more taking from the magical girl style in general. I mean, magical girl designs like that existed before Madoka (although I will admit the design for Madoka Magica is impeccable)
Ok but the biggest question that comes to mind when I see this picture is this: Was the woman actually standing or was she pulling herself up to the shelf with her arms? I mean, that wheelchair looks manual, and wheelchair-bound people in manual armchairs tend to have monster arm strength, so it’s entirely possible all the support is from her arms. Could she actually be wheelchair bound? Maybe, maybe not, I’m just throwing a few observations out there.
You know, I’ve been thinking the same thing lately. It’s happening all around the internet lately. It’s like people get more offended at the presence of an SJW than an SJW gets offended at, well, anything.
Yes, there certainly are many great arguments for that side of the debate, which is partly why I hate that so many people stick with this one in particular. I suppose it’s just the “easy” argument to make
That whole rambling aside, this white illegals whole argument essentially says “you slaughtered people and took their land centuries ago so you owe it to another group of people that were uninvolved in those conflicts to give them your land”. I’m not entirely sure this whole thing made any sense as it’s been a long day of moving and mind you I don’t necessarily have an opinion on the illegal immigrant issue but there’s my two cents. I just really fucking hate that argument.
I didn’t really try to elaborate my point initially so I’ll try to do a better job at it now. The land did belong to the native americans but not the government that the europeans established. Another commenter here mentioned use of the word “immigrating” when referring to europeans coming to America is a bit inappropriate because “immigrating” implies they came with the intent of integrating into the native society when really they came to dominate and establish their own government. Which is not really what illegal immigrants are trying to do at all. I suppose that’s just getting technical about phrasing but I think it’s important to note the intent between different groups that came into the country. One could say it’s not fair that we aren’t letting immigrants in because our ancestors took land from other people but saying white people are illegals is incorrect because a.) you can’t be an illegal in a government your people founded and b.) (My knowledge on this could be foggy so correct me if I’m wrong) even with immigrant parent/grandparents/ancestors, if you were born in the states you are a US citizen in the eyes of the the government. Were the europeans that originally took the land from native americans illegal immigrants? One could easily argue that yes they were. But due to a newly established government and the generations upon generations of white families that were born and raised here you can’t argue that white americans can count as illegals anymore.
