I agree that Zimmerman shouldn’t have stepped out of his car, but the point I was trying to make is that both people in this situation had reasons to act the way they did. Trayvon felt threatened (and possibly feared for his life) and Zimmerman (most probably) felt like he had some sort of duty as a member of the community watch to handle the situation himself because he felt he could handle confronting a teen about suspicious behavior. It was a fatal mistake to leave his car, but I don’t think many of us would be able to tell that a situation like this could end in the death of a teen.
Heh, I never really saw myself as the type that drew attention, but thanks.
Now put yourself in Zimmerman’s shoes. You’re a member of the community watch, and you see a teenager who deals with drugs and gang violence in the neighborhood and he looks suspicious to you. You call the cops from your car, and the officer advises that you stay in your car and wait for authorities to arrive. You decide to ignore this advice and get out of your car to keep a close eye on the teen. You end up confronting Trayvon, and Trayvon attacks. You feel your life is in danger, and this teen is obviously overpowering you, and so you feel the only way to protect yourself is to shoot him. You don’t intend to kill him, but he ends up dying from the wound.
See, this story could be twisted in a hundred different ways.
Seeing as you have been spending your time in this thread depicting Republicans as bad guys, I don’t think you have much of a right to complain when your political party gets some flack.
Then again, the jury also had the advantage of not being too aware of the case, not being over saturated with the opinions of the news stations across the country on this subject, and had the advantage of going in there with mostly unbiased opinions. The internet, on the other hand, made their decisions on the verdict before the trial even started (as show by the comments that took place on this page before the trial)
Why do I have a feeling that you would have said “That’s what the government wants” whether Zimmerman was found guilty or not guily?
I thought it was a large group of Umbreon cosplayers…
I’m not saying it did offend me, I’m saying that it’s the only part of the song that could have offended. But as I stated before I know it’s supposed to be a comedic song and I am also aware of T.I.‘s style so I’m not actually offended by it.
That’s very true, but how the hell is flying strong against fighting? I never got that one
I still think the episode where Mr. Mosby was trying to teach London how to drive was one of the funniest things
The food was left by the dumpster because it wasn’t good enough to pass inspection, but they didn’t wanna throw it out. So they hid it by the dumpster, which seemed to be the only place the health inspector wouldn’t look.
“We tried to do everything that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, and everything that is completely derogatory towards women. Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, ’We’re the perfect guys to make fun of this.’ People say, ‘Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?’ I’m like, ‘Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women.’”
I don’t know whether to find this quote funny and awesome or deeply insulting. I think I’m going to go with the former, because It’s quite obvious that this is not the man’s normal mindset nor is it his normal behavior. It’s more like he was trying to make a parody than anything. I’ve never seen the video, so I’ll just talk about the song here.
Looking at the lyrics (and actually listening to it a few times) It’s quite obvious that this is supposed to be a “funny” song. I personally can not find to much “objectifying women” in the lyrics of this song. In fact, one of the lines is “you’re far from plastic”. Pretty sure that’s the opposite of saying “you’re my sex object”. The only part of the song that could actually disturb me or offend me was T.I.’s verse which crosses the line a bit for me.
Jeez, I thought you were Mark at first cus of the Lyra avatar
Sure thing, I’ll see what I can do. I’ve been pretty busy with work and getting together college tuition, but I’ll try to get you a 63’d OC before we are put in retirement homes
Uhh, we have teapots…
Sexualized? What? Did you even read the webcomic this piece originates from?
Thomas? Isn’t his name Brenden? Oh well, I love the art style in this.
It looks like you can still buy it and gift it, but I think I’ll make things less complicated for you and actually pick a game that is already out
How about Deponia? Mmm-mm I love me them point and click adventures
Her boobs hit her face like 5 times
I kinda don’t get why scrafty is offensive
Not all couples marry…
“Yes”? That doesn’t help anything D:
But I’m going to assume you’re asking me what game I want, which would probably be a game called Kentucky Route Zero
Because gamer girls can’t wear makeup or dresses or do anything that differentiates them from their male gamer counterparts or else they’re being attention whores
I’d hate to be that guy, but why wouldn’t we just add this information to the Misandry page? I think the two are rather relative, and unless in the future there is way more information added to this page there really doesn’t seem to be much point in this page being here
Do you mean what games do I prefer that I already have in my library, or what games do I want in my library?
