XKCD has managed to get so much more stuff done – even, arguably, bigger stuff – than PA has, and it’s just one guy making a webcomic that mostly consists of stick figures.
One incident of corruption is not an indicator of a definite “plague”, just like one American brought back to the homeland after contracting Ebola isn’t an indicator of a plague in the world outside the Internet. However, it should put you on the lookout, and precautions should be made to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
As of yet, all that can be said is that one psychopath acted in a self-beneficial way that harmed the rest of us, and that she’s trying to cover it up.
Wait, you mean the anti-slutshamers are slutshaming?
Hi, I’m Crossark, and I’m a sociopath.
Speaking from experience, Quinn’s response post is bullshit. She tries to derail the discussion by playing on your empathy (it’s a personal matter, blah blah blah), and then refuses to elaborate on the matter or the charges made against her in an attempt to garner support from people who have not yet heard the allegations against her. Not to mention, by attempting to keep the press from talking about it, she is effectively trying to get rid of anything that taints her name. It’s a classic technique that we sociopaths use often, and falling for it will leave you feeling just as used as the people Quinn slept with.
You see, the problem with the argument there is that it’s not inherently sexist. A girl in a mini-skirt would reveal her underwear if she was to bend over at a ~90 degree angle. That’s not sexist, it’s fact. And no one besides teens themselves and people who are already pedophiles are going to look at an obviously underage girl and say, “I’d tap dat.” It’s the same way rape simulators don’t fuel rape fantasies; they merely provide an outlet for those who already have them. Even if this did fuel “Lolita fantasies”, what harm would be done? A fantasy is something that doesn’t happen in reality, at least, not without intentional set up somewhere along the line. Fueling a fantasy isn’t inherently bad; what the person who’s having that fantasy kindle does to make it a reality is.
They’ve done it several times in the past. In fact, 4Chan is like Reddit, but they fill the time between the good acts with shitposting and immature humor.
You mean Tumblr actually respected what 4Chan had to say?
Hitler poisoned millions, sometimes under the false pretense of taking a harmless shower. Others were burned alive. While all this happened, he promised that “[w]ork would set you free[,]”. Oh, and did I mentioned he killed people with a prejudice, rather than mere psychopathy, as this woman displays?
Don’t get me wrong, she’s evil and deserves the death penalty, in my opinion. She’s just not Hitler. One innocent life taken due to a need for attention and a lack of empathy does not equate to millions being murdered, raped, and tortured for the sake of satisfying the German people’s subconscious need for a scapegoat and their leader’s personal unreasonable vengeance.
You could double the funny factor by slowing it down significantly and playing the theme from Chariots of Fire behind it.
There’s no 2 in the NYT image.
“Победа будет наша,” means, “Victory will be ours.” The given caption of, “Победа будет няша,” does not translate properly.
Нет Беззаконию is Not Lawless, or No Lawlessness.
Seeing as a good portion of Canadians are of French decent, I would have hoped that the protesters would have made a point by constructing a barricade and singing songs. Maybe throw in some weird love triangle thing, just for authenticity.
I like how Anon actually worked with the authorities on this one.
