This gives credit to my theory that many people tend to downvote comments that are already in the red and upvote comments that are already in the green just because a lot of other people have already done it.
I’m also trying not to get caught up directly in the flame war. I’m hoping that if enough fairly neutral and level headed parties stand in-between both sides we may find a peaceful resolution. I didn’t know it was spreading to Facebook. Hopefully peace can be achieved before too much is lost to the chaos.
What is it? Is it the Manhattan project?
I realize there are probably plenty of bronies involved already. It was really just a friendly letter to our resident brony colony/embassy of the brony empire.
There was a time when I saw you as adversaries, perhaps even as cancer. Those were the days of the initial shit storms. You were a young fandom then and there was much distrust of you. You were a strange new group unlike any we’ve ever seen. When the shit finally cleared however, I began to realize that you had become an integral part of the internet ecosystem. I, like many others, learned to live in harmony with our new neighbors. Friendship it seemed, wasn’t such a bad thing after all.
Bronies, we have reached a dark chapter in our Internet’s history. A terrible war has pitted gamer against SJW. Even those wishing to stay neutral have been inadvertently forced into either side. Though some seem to almost enjoy the conflict, many, like myself, long for civil discussion and reasonable debate.
My pastel colored friends, can you help bring peace back to this Internet? Can you show these people the path to friendship, regardless of whether it is or is not magical in nature? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?
I like how the Blacklist guy responds like an old-timey robot. It’s kind of awesome. Maybe he IS a robot come to save us all from ourselves like it’s The Day The Earth Stood Still.
Also, the whole “guilty until proven innocent” thing that Ethan guy is spouting is a little ridiculous.
I guess either way they both lead to dictatorships. Maybe we should form the U.I. The United Internets.
This truly is the WWI of the internet (the video gamey part of it anyway). So much destruction. So much anger and spite. So many people taking sides intentionally and unintentionally. Let’s hope we can bring an end to this war soon. Let’s hope that this war leaves only scares and not open wounds.
Let’s not forget what happened after the real WWI. We don’t want to Internet Hitler and Internet Stalin running around.
I’ve been busy with classes lately so I haven’t been keeping track of things too closely. How’s the war effort going?
Can anyone report on our current DEFCON status? Last time I checked I think we were at around DEFCON 2 or 3.
To be fair, in the olden days it was not uncommon to say that a game was “written”. A lot of people I’ve met, especially professors, who have been programming for a while still say that you “write” a program.
So basically, 4Chan, realizing they shared a common enemy with TFYC, decided to have sex with them. I mean passionate, tender sex, not the angry, rough sex they have with Tumbler. But unbeknownst to 4Chan, TFYC wasn’t actually on the pill, and thus, Vivian James was conceived.
It just goes to show you what a gentleman 4Chan can be with you when you both have the same enemy.
They were together but I don’t think it’s Tumbler’s baby.
That didn’t take as long as I thought.
This actually seems like a more realistic outfit when she’s off duty. The skin-tight suit does make sense for when she wears her armor though. You don’t want clothing bunching up in there.
Is that a vagina emoticon?
Uh oh, check your foreskin privileges. XD
As someone who was circumcised as a baby, I do wish I had been given a choice now that I’m an adult. I don’t resent my parents for making the decision they made, I know they just wanted what was best for me. They chose the way they did based on what they understood at the time. Now, we live in a new age with new ideas and more plentiful knowledge. I think I’ll choose differently for my own future kids.
It’s not really a major deal in the end. I still enjoy sex but I wonder if I would enjoy it more if I had been left uncircumcised. I’ll never really know. I just wish I could have made that choice myself. If I have sons, I’ll leave them the way they’re born. I’ll let them make the decision when they become consenting adults.
Just look at her expression. She has blank lunatic stare and a smirk. I think she might have already had some kind of mental problem. She’s either perceiving a threat that isn’t there or strait-up lying for attention.
I have to say, I’ve seen quite a lot of internet fetish artists’ work but few are ever nearly this extreme. Most fetish artists on internet have certain limits of what they’ll do. They’re trying to make something that focuses on the fetish in mind but is not too disturbing that it’s no longer sexy to them and their audience.
Shadbase however, is clearly going out of his/her way to push the envelope. The more extreme cases of his/her work don’t have that same sexual finesse. These seem like they were made to disturb the observer.
As much as I’d prefer to avoid looking at his/her work, I have to admit, Shadbase is a good artist in terms of drawing talent and in achieving the desired affect on the observer. That desired effect? Disturbing and grossing out people in new and creative ways.
Conclusion: Shadbase is a terrifying Lovecraftian god among internet artists. Like Cthulhu, just avoid looking at it and you’ll maintain at least some part of your sanity
Whoa, don’t ogre-load on the Shrek jokes.
Wow, it looks like it might be a nice place if it weren’t for the dictatorship and the political prisoner death camps. It doesn’t take much for you to be a political prisoner there. Once you are, not only are you stuck in the camps for life, but so are your descendents. I’d still prefer South Korea any day.
I know. What, are all these people retarded?
Actually, they probably just want something to be angry about like most SJWs.
That’s the unfortunate thing about satire on the internet. In order to be properly understood, satire requires a decent amount of context surrounding it. Due to the nature of the internet, a simple joke is much easier to spread around than the context it was originally told in.
I share in your frustration. Hopefully once people’s initial knee-jerk reaction will simmer down and more people will start realizing it was a joke.
Hate to kill everyone’s anger boner but has anyone actually read the article?
“#UnfollowAMan is a satirical feminist hashtag campaign…”
Satirical. This is meant to make fun of ridiculous hashtag campaigns not contribute to them.
As others have already pointed out, the knee-jerk reaction everyone is having is just an example of Poe’s law
