Advil does not cure headaches it merely suppresses the pain.
Socialism appears in Hitler’s speeches and Nazi rhetoric because it was populist, such promises were largely empty once they came to power with the notable exception of some policies designed to promote military support/recruitment and increase the amount of children the “right” families were having.
You don’t need to have lots of sex to be slut-shamed. If you’ve been to High School there’s always so called “sluts” but most of the time they’ve had actually a pretty normal amount of sex.
Just having sex at all can make you a “slut” to plenty of young people.
What the fuck is American school?
Even in the most “progressive” areas racism can still be there, latent.
Oh no emotional force?! Social force?!
I’m really sorry they’re mean to you sometimes, but come back when actual serious violence is happening and maybe I won’t think memes like this are stupid.
Honestly this strikes me as ridiculous.
Anyone who thinks this is accurate has never held in their hearts the fear that comes when you face down actual fascists, or has ever watched violent anarchists attack something.
But look I’m sorry someone was mean to you on the internet.
There’s better porn than this, even on supermarket shelves
Well if you know anything about the history of mental health treatment then you probably get what this post is about.
Possibly also about Foucault-ian stuff.
I don’t think the person who wrote that actually stole the mirror
It’s a riff of a famous quote, calm down.
God KYM is easily offended.
Yeah some people are a little lost in their own problems.
Try to worry less about their sniping.
Yes but that’s why nobody leaves the turtle cities
Ah that’s a bit much, we were all 12-15 once.
That said everyone in that age bracket is generally embarrassing.
Indeed. They weren’t special enough so they steal the rhetoric that surrounds actual minority issues, the purest example of the type of person who wants to be the righteously aggrieved victim.
That whole deal. In some academic contexts racism refers to a contest of oppressive (powerful/dominant) and oppressed (lacking power) cultures, rather than the more common usage of harbouring prejudices based on appearance.
So then bloody undergrads who took one class go around blithering about the impossibility of racism towards white people without making that distinction.
Cool story: I went to see the creators of Cards Against Humanity when they came to PAX Australia, they talked about this exact thing, about how their incredibly offensive humour was in fact carefully crafted along the kind of lines these tumblr users are talking about.
They talked about their humour “not punching down” and how something wasn’t funny if it hurt someone who didn’t deserve it, which is why they had taken out a particular card about a disability.
And I’ve yet to meet a single “sjw” who doesn’t like CaH, you see because they’re actually good comedians they can make good offensive humour (and I mean hanging out with the Greens party, friends in the Socialist parties, feminist activists and huge tumblr nerds that I know IRL all love it).
The point being, if you’re not a total hack like the New Yorker cartoonist, it’s not at all hard to make provocative or offensive things that don’t “punch down” and still actually be funny.
Yeah and that’s also stupid.
NOT IN AUSTRALIA IT’S NOT!
(UNLESS YOU MEAN CELSIUS AND COVER UP FROM THE ETERNAL PAIN OF THE SUN)
So crappy writing is crappy writing is what you’re saying?
Okay I’ll bite, how does public school fuck with foreigners?
Fucking with foreigners is a national pastime, even the government warns foreigners about “drop bears”.
Australia doesn’t take itself very seriously
As I understand it many of the names are bastardizations of Aboriginal words to greater or lesser degrees into English, although Bargo is pure Aussie ocker drawl
Okay I’m pretty sure the first user is trolling based on that blog title
