The whole viral trend is for the sake of raising awareness for children and pets left in hot cars. The idea is if you feel what it’s like to sit in there for extended periods of time then you’ll be more inclined to not leave your kids in there. The term “challenge” is a bit misleading. Most people aren’t treating it like a game in this case. Also, the guy who originally made the video encouraged others to do it.
You missed out on great opportunity
This fuckin guy.
… I love you
I was being sarcastic about the sun never burning you thing. I myself got one bitch of a sunburn on my shoulders last week
You’ll never get burned sitting outside in the sun.
You see, that’s what I thought and hoped Men’s Rights would be about when I first heard about it but sadly when doing my own digging about the group there was more instances of what I’m mentioning than instances of what you are mentioning. To see my point, let me provide a source of my own with an article that holds links to plenty of MRA threads and forums. And in the case of rape jokes, I never said anyone could mind control anyone else, but when you discourage such disgusting trends and encourage reinforcing victims you’ll start to see a lot less assholes out there. Your argument could also be said about any fight in past decades about women’s roles in society. No mind control was needed to change the mindset that treating women as stupid was ok.
When someone says “feminism isn’t needed in the first world” and “feminism is a sexist movement” I’m going to assume you are uneducated on the subject and got all your information from 4chan. Literally the best case of why feminism is needed in the first world is right next to this article on the trending bar: “Jada’s Sexual Assault Case”. It literally became a trend on twitter to start making fun of a sexual assault victim, and femists across the internet were there to support her and put a stop to the disgusting trend, and you’re going to tell me feminism isn’t needed in the first world? Say what you want about the “rape culture” debate but we still need feminists out there to support those victims that get nothing but ridicule. You are wasting your time by only giving attention to the bad side of the feminist movement.
Oh, and one small thing about the MRA movement. While I and many real feminists out there agree that men have their own issues around their gender, the MRA movement is a complete joke mostly comprised of people that want to bring gender roles back to the 40s. I would love to see the movement get its shit together and do some good for the world, but right now it deserves no respect from anyone.
Well, going by what most of the signs are saying on both sides they’re either taking things to one extreme of the other. Maybe they do know, but what they wrote on those signs sure doesn’t show it.
I really love the images portraying Jada as a superhero. That’s a perfect example of taking a bad situation and flipping it on its head.
ITT: Nobody making these signs knows what fucking feminism is
“So they made one with a white face woman”
Um, excuse me, but I believe that color is green? And the statue was copper (in other words, not white) before that.
#That one with Dipper at Taco Bell
Gotta love King’s Quest
Not debunked, but when word got out about the “pink goo” that fast food meat was made from and everyone freaked out fast food joints across the country put a stop to the process. People still like to pretend it’s going on to this day, though.
Except people do much more than that to celebrate the 4th so your point is kind of moot. I mean, some people find barbecuing and fireworks “uncultured” despite the fact that it’s a huge part of American culture and something that I personally find what makes the holiday great and those are the same people that make shitty posts like the one we’re commenting on.
Fair point. I actually don’t follow this guy or his show, so I wouldn’t know outside of this incident
If America has no culture then how the fuck do you explain the way people celebrate Independence Day?
And thus we see the dangers of constantly being connected to our social media. It seems quite obvious these tweets happened within minutes of the incident and I highly doubt he took the time to actually cool off and relax before tweeting the story. People say really stupid shit when they’re upset. Just earlier this year I personally had one of my things stolen from a student at my school and I went on an angry rant on facebook about how the people in my school have a problem with stealing and disrespecting others’ property. If he apologizes about the incident then I’d let it slide but for now I guess I’ll see where this incident goes.
I’ll be honest, though, I’m pretty sick of people demanding that someone lose their job whenever an incident happens that has little to nothing to do with the profession in question.
Well, shit, the person closest to me right now is my sibling who just got back from being in New Zealand for the last six months and is now sleeping on the couch just outside my room so Fluttershy is gonna have to suck it up.
Jake is actually Kakashi’s dog companion, so it makes sense that Finn is Kakashi. Although Kiba and Akamaru make more sense
I’m sure some people order it for themselves but mostly this seems intended to be shared among families/parties of multiple people. Kinda like how at Chinese restaurants their pupu platters are meant to be split among 2-4 people
Ok but did the OP actually think those 40 nuggets were meant to be eaten by just one person.?
I drink my coffee iced, and apparently certain people are baffled by the concept
Reminds me of one of the water slides at Six Flags New England. Granted, probably much larger. It’s actually kinda hard to get an impression on just how big this thing is from a pov camera.
Either way, I’m kinda looking forward to seeing a behind the scenes thing on how this baby was built.
