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.
Native Americans founded America
Europeans founded the United States
It really peeves me when people use the white people took land from Native Americans argument in the illegal immigrants debate because it’s an argument that doesn’t hold water and the people that state the argument think they’re so fucking smug and clever
I can agree that as a whole the fat acceptance movement is a big mess but is this one instance of a hashtag really “too far”? I mean jeez, it’s just about encouraging people to have fun by the pool/beach (the most uncomfortable places to be for people with body image issues) and just having fun and being comfortable. I don’t really think being comfortable in one’s skin = demands of worship.
In this case it’s being proud of going out in public and being comfortable/having fun in revealing clothing and I don’t really see a problem with that. The whole fat acceptance movement is a mess but in this small instance it’s just people having fun and it’s rather unnecessary for you to come in waving around obesity statistics in this instance. I mean, you don’t have to rain on the parade, ya know?
To be fair, the KYM NSFW guidelines state that any revealing clothing that would be equal to or less than a bikini is considered NSFW. So technically speaking if we were to have an article on skinny girls in bikinis it would have the same content warning
Lifeloser strikes again
Oh my god this whole time I was wondering what the fuck was up with his shirt
Fire/water has yet to happen as well I believe
Both of those articles state that neither google nor twitch came forward for comment. No comment from either company that the deal happened = no proof the deal happened. And while the system twitch implemented is very rushed and broken that doesn’t mean their system can’t be fixed and in fact twitch has been working hard to improve the system as we speak. And I think we need to remember that live broadcasts are still unaffected and twitch is a live broadcasting site. Google/twitch can bitch to the MIAA and RIAA all they want but at then end of the day copyright laws are copyright laws and the broadcasting sites are between a rock and a hard place there.
I think the part that really pushes this into the territory of “creepy” is the “School Days” tagline which implies this is either a.) meant for underage teenagers in school or b.) meant for people who want to fulfill schoolgirl/loli fantasies. Then again, when has American Apparel not been doing sketchy things in their business.
Mind the gap
I’m still not believing it’s anything more than rumor until I hear comment from either Twitch or Google. I imagine if the deal actually happened and was finalized they would be very public about it. While it’s possible that it’s Google’s fault for Twitch’s implementation of the content ID system it’s incredibly likely that Twitch got a C&D or something of the sort from lawyers of copyright holders and that’s why the whole content ID thing was so rushed in without a word of warning. Frankly I’m shocked with Twitch’s growth and rampant use of streamers using copyrighted music that it took them this long to legally cover their asses and implement something like this.
Yeah, even if it was real I think it was purposefully made to be stupid
“The episode itself is considered one of the best in the series”
Damn straight, son.
He’s known as “Harley’s Joker” quick google image search of “Joker cosplay” will give you almost exclusively images of this guy. I don’t know what his popularity is in comparison to Jessica, but I know I heard of him before I heard of her.
Good night, sweet prince
It’s rather sad that some feminists feel the need to hate her, especially when a lot of feminists are trying to discourage slut shaming. I find statements like that rather silly. Yes, how dare someone be proud of their body and show it off. I find objectification to be a combination of sexualization and lack of any personality/intelligence, you can’t really objectify someone with only one of those parts. And going from what I have heard/seen she doesn’t seem to be devoid of personality and intelligence.
So cosplaying a scantily clad character someone else designed isn’t slutty, but dressing as a scantily clad character of your own design is slutty. Makes total sense. And just because she has her boobs out it means she’s not talented? That Charizard cosplay has a beautiful design to it and clearly she clearly has an idea of what makes a cosplay appealing beyond boobs.
You mean like Anthony Misiano?

Is it just me or does this look edited?
Yeah I’m not that good at on-the-spot arguing. I have spent an hour+ on my posts in the past, it really takes me a while to think up my points and counterpoints.
Yeah it’s really a subject I actually think about a lot. It honestly makes me incredibly sad when people feel the need to boycott art because of something the artist did. I can’t necessarily blame them, especially if it’s for something that means a lot to them. I guess as someone who wants to make a living off of their art I would hate to have everyone boycott me because I did something stupid.
Man, I don’t know what it is about those serious debate threads but writing out long posts for them is just so fun
What’s with this “our generation” bullshit? This trend didn’t suddenly sprout out of the ground in the 2000s
I just realized. In the time span that in the 3 years I’ve been with my boyfriend, Kim has gotten married, divorced, had a baby, and gotten married again. That’s… Kinda sad.
I don’t see why people are upset about the game. It literally does the same thing every other “free-to-play” app does
