In A Relationship: The Man or the Bear? by TonyDiGerolamo in Comics

What proportion of Bear sightings result in attacks, do you think?

Not sure. Not many, I'd guess. Depends on the bear, the time of year, the luck of the camper and the bear.

What proportion of single man encounters with single women in the wilderness result in attacks to you think?

Not sure. Not many, I'd guess. Depends on the man the time of year, the luck of the camper and the man.

If your question is: Do I think bear attacks in the woods are as common as being attacked by men in the woods? It's a bit hard to measure those against each other. Bears don't normally follow you into the woods from the city, or invite you to the woods from the city. Bears also, however, don't pass you on the walking trail, smile and say good morning. If you're counting every encounter everyone ever had with a man in the woods vs an encounter everyone ever had with a bear in the woods, bears would be more dangerous by leagues, simply because camping areas, walking and hiking trails, observations spots, hunting locations, fishing locations all contain men that you're likely to meet alone, pumping the numbers up an astronomical amount compared to bear encounters.

On the other hand, the more you narrow the field, the more you tip it in one sides favour of the other: "Okay, but only men who are total strangers, when you're alone, after 9pm on a Friday night when they've been drinking." or "Okay, but only bears that came within 15 meters of you during mating season when they can smell other male bears around." - ultimately, humans send a lot more time in and around humans, which means, on average, you bump into a man in the woods thousands of times more than you do a bear, and are perfectly safe almost all of that time. On the other hand, you don't bump into many bears, and are perfectly safe almost all of the time... But once that math comes out in the wash, if there's 100 interactions with bears and 2 deaths, and 1,000,000 interactions with men and 2,500 deaths, That's a 2% kill ration on the bear and a 0.25% kill ration on the man.

End result - People think they are in more danger from a man because it happens numerically more, but that's because you spend a phenomenally huge amount of time around men, meaning the odds of meeting the one insane one go up. People think you're less likely to be killed by a shark, but that's because you don't spend anywhere near as much time around sharks. People think you won't get eaten by a bear because the attacks are rare, but the meetings are also rare. If the bear meetings were as common as the man meetings, alone, in the woods, at night, when the bear had been drinking?... Those stats wouldn't look as nice.

Then you have to take into account repeat offenders, bears and men, then you might want to take into account provocation - if you shot the bear, it's hard to call that a random, unprovoked bear attack, same with the dude... It gets complicated, but if we're just looking at bears and men alone in the woods, I'd say: Yeah, you're safer with a man.

... If that wasn't your point, boy, I'm sorry about all those words. :(

Being in the woods means that there's no help for the woman's if the man (or bear) is dangerous.

Yeah, that's why I assumed we were going that way. That being said, that's already a foregone conclusion with the bear. If the bear is going to attack you, they run faster than you, they are stronger than you, they have claws and teeth - It's really all up to the bear how that goes. With a fellow human you have agency: Maybe you can run faster, maybe you can fight him off, maybe you can ask him to leave, maybe you can bribe him, maybe you can act so crazy he just wants to go away...

Mind you! None of that would impact the nature of the question: Are you safer with a bear or a man, I think, as it requires that the man already be a danger that you need to negotiate. I would say, if you have to convince the man not to murder you, it should be counted under the More dangerous count. While it makes the bear strictly more dangerous, as in you can't stop it once it starts but you might be able to stop the man, it goes against the spirit of the question, I think.

Okay, How inaccurate do you think it is?

If the person's choice is: "Bear because there's only 2 bear attacks on women a year, but there's 2,500 a year in the US and Canada", I think it's: "Wildly, dangerously inaccurate". If it's: "Bear because men are more dangerous", I think it's: "Very".

I believe that the man or bear thought experiment is set in the wilderness.

Yes, but what I was driving at is that, in your day to day life, a person likely has upwards of 300 "Man interactions", assuming they are classified the same as "Bear interactions", which, I assume, cover being close to a bear. Are you saying that you think being alone in the wood would be enough to change a person's reaction? - Most interactions on the street don't allow for a rape or murder, but being in the wood provides opportunity, therefore motive? That sort of thing?

People are talking a lot about physical stuff, but it's also true of social stuff and mental stuff. Starting a club is harder then joining a club that exists and has members. Getting a job is harder than going to your job you've already done for 2 years. Starting a conversation with someone you don't know is harder than continuing a conversation with a friend. It's pretty universal.

The "Man or Bear" thing is about which a woman would feel safer with. It's not statistics. It's perception of risk.

If their perception of risk is wildly inaccurate, then the conversation needs to shift to that. That would be like saying: "I don't eat fruit because it contains live bees. This isn't about if or not fruit actually contains live bees, it's about how I choose to live my life."... Really, you can frame your fruit issue however you want, but addressing the fact that fruit doesn't contain live bees should be priority number one.

Besides, I wasn't making a comment on the purpose of the discussion, I was just addressing the statistics you, yourself, raised. It's especially important to look at them logically if someone were about to base their choice on bumping into a bear vs bumping into a man on them, but believed that they showed an elevated risk per random man compared to per random bear.

But by the same token seeing a brown bear in the woods isn't a death sentence.

That's true, and that was also part of my point. It wouldn't be fair to say every contact with a bear is doomed to end in being eaten alive while on the phone with your mother over 3 hours or so. In fact, for every reported "Bear Interaction", I bet there's another, undocumented one where the person simply never tells anyone what happened, or they don't even see the near by bear.

I'll bet there's even a few where both parties, bear and person, are totally unaware, like some Warner Brothers cartoon skit where they both hear something move, lean up against the same tree, but peak around the opposite sides and totally miss each other.

With that said, you likely still pass more random men on a hiking trail than you do bears, let alone when you get back to the city, catch a bus, go to work and so on... Unless you work in a zoo, specifically caring for the bears, I guess? Then it might be a toss up.

I am the original comment. I am on topic - the point is that it's difficult to legally punish false allegations simply based on "No proof" because that isn't evidence that the allegation is false and it discourages other possible, future allegations.

If you're trying to say that you want me to keep the examples relevant specifically to HR, then it kind of remains the same argument - If it requires evidence, then I can corner someone in a bathroom and threaten to murder them at work, because it's just them and me in the bathroom. That's what I mean by HR having their hands tied in this regard because they face backlash if there's a complaint that they didn't action, but they also face backlash if there's a complaint that they do action and it turns out to be false.

YYeeessss, I think it already is, but you have to be careful with stuff like that.

I'd love to see people who fling accusations around get a swift and serious case of justice, but the last thing you want is to make reporting a crime a coin toss on if or not you end up getting arrested for doing so. I think most places consider making false allegations a crime, but you need to have an airtight case showing that it was a malicious allegation and not just someone who felt honestly in danger but couldn't bring enough proof for a guilty verdict, yeah?

I've observed, with HR, the race is usually to become the accuser. Once you say that someone else is doing something sexist, racist, otherist, it almost seems that this instantly becomes law - the accusation is true and cannot be proven false, even if you prove it's false. The only evidence offered is someone coming in, frowning and saying they feel attacked... You can come in, frown and say you weren't attacking them, but for some reason that equal evidence isn't sufficient. Additional evidence, like having a dozen other people say they didn't believe there was anything negative going on still doesn't seem to outweigh the original weight of the complaint.

It's hard to blame HR. They aren't a court. They pretty much just have to try and keep the wheels from being squeaky as best they can, but it's very easy for people to weaponise that unbalanced mix of: The total authority to fire you because of a complaint and The absolute lack of authority to investigate a complaint in full and fire the other person for raising it maliciously.

That's not really: "On the other hand", that's a bit of a misunderstanding of how those statistics would work. For them to be a simple 1 to 1, women would have to pass equally as many bears in the street each day as they do men, at which stage you could say: "See? Far fewer woman are killed by bears!"

... Except that I suspect you'd be saying: "Holy shit, we need to do something about all the bears killing people in the street!".

As for bears being aggressive, I think that's as much case by case as the average man is. Mother bear with cubs near by? Guess you'll die. Hungry and you're hanging around? Sadly, I hear bears eat people alive, so it won't be over quickly. On the other hand, it could be a warm, summer day, no cubs, no mating season, plenty of food and the bear will trundle pass utterly indifferent to you. It's pretty hard to predict. Unlike a man, you can't really ask a bear what it's doing or why it's there, and baring you having a big'ol gun, that kind of ends your autonomy to address the bear situation. After that it's all down to how the bear feels about you in that specific moment.

Romeo vs Juliet slander by Jihadist in whatever

Is this meant to be a retelling of Romeo and Juliet that takes place in the 20's or something? The idea being that a black woman and a white man would be from "Two warring families" in that period?

Seems really on the nose to insert that. It's a classic and it's generally frowned upon to modify Shakespeare in any way. It's also pretty banal... Yeah, I get it, you're obsessed with black people. At least if it had been a Feudal Japanese Samurai and a Christian, or a Hundred Years War French and English person it would have been an original(ish, for the modern era) take on the idea of people in a feud who fall in love.

You ever know someone who's not necessarily "unattractive" but you have absolutely zero sexual attraction to them also?

[–]NastyWetSmear 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I've felt that way before. I've even felt it about people who are more than conventionally attractive. People who I can look at and say: "Yeah, she's beautiful."... And then just feel nothing about at all.

I assume it's some evolutionary, lizard brain quirk. Something instinctive in me that tells me, on some biological level that I can smell or see but not consciously understand, that we wouldn't be a good pair to be breeding? My eyes tell me that they are beautiful, my brain tells me they are nice, but some instinctive ape centre inside me says: "No, our kids would have lung problems and would die trying to climb their first tree. NEXT!"

Love, lust and desire are odd things like that. It's like a woman describing her ideal man to a person who matches every criteria she's describing and then going off with someone else who seems to have none of those qualities - we might know, intellectually, what's good about a person but be biologically driven to get something else despite ourselves. Very odd.

I don't know about the Alpha, Beat, Gamma etc specifics, but there are certainly men and women who seem to naturally find a place in a social structure with one or more people who they instantly defer to. It might be hard to point one out in the media, as I guess you have to be a little more assertive and naturally charismatic to be there in the first place? But odds are good that, if you think about your social circles, you'll instantly be able to know who is sort of the "Central" person - The one who does things and invites other people to those things and when they aren't around the group feels a little lost.

For want of a better term, those people could be called an Alpha, while the others that naturally let them take control of the group are Betas. Thanks to a lot of this online chatter we kind of look down on the term "Beta" and think less of them, but that's sort of like thinking less of a Sargent because he isn't a Captain. Groups need different people to work, I think. Everyone brings something... Those who seem to be the centre of the group bring that energy, while others bring other things that makes a group work together.

Maybe that's just wishful thinking? Like looking for the typical "Missing Link", always adding another step to make it make more sense?

Princeton students end hunger strike due to hunger, 'health concerns' after 10 days by P-38lightning in news

These aren't plucked randomly. They're the ones hunger striking in support of the protesters who have been arrested. They're the 13 most likely to have ties to palestine in the entire campus.

No, I think that's optimistic. That's like saying that the Black Lives Matter protestors would all, most likely, have ties to George Floyd or the black community. With protests, especially on university campuses, it's just as often students wanting to skip classes, students wanting attention, students who have no idea what's actually happening and just like the most popular or unpopular causes. There's even videos of people at these kinds of protests being interviewed and having no real idea what's happening... Though, admittedly, those are viewed and popular Because of their absurdity.

Yes you did. You don't know that they've never been to palestine, and you can't know that they're never going to go.

No, I didn't. I made a guess based on the most reasonable assumption possible. You just want to make it seem like the statement needs to be a dissertation with sources in order to be most likely true, as opposed to a reasonable thing to assume in casual conversation.

No. You said that they have been and are never going to go to palestine.

Now you're attempting semantics and sophism. If you can't read or hear something without taking only the most literal interpretation, you're acting on bad faith or you're struggling through life. I don't need to prove the absolute validity of every statement in order to speak it - I might tell you the sun will rise tomorrow. You're welcome to demand I produce actual evidence beyond: "Well, it always does", but it's not required. This isn't a court of law.

Hopefully that's enough, because while I love a good sealion like anyone else, I think we've reached the end of the conversation... Which I will assume you agree because when I sealioned back at you to show the worthlessness of these kinds of questions, you ignored them.

The point of the questions is question your assumption that they've never been to Palestine.

There's no point questioning the assumption. As I pointed out, it's a safe one. If you plucked 100 students from the universities all across the world, I would happily wager that 0% of them have been to Palestine. It's not a common event, most students can barely afford a trip to Europe on a gap year to "Find Themselves", and of the ones who can afford to travel, very few people are picking Palestine. On the off chance you found one who had been, all you'd be doing is showing, as I pointed out, that outliers in data exist. All you're doing is trying to pick apart a simple, obvious statement in an effort to diminish an overall point, and it isn't working.

No. We're talking about the 17 students who were on the hunger strike.

Good, so we're agreed? The chances are ridiculously slim.

You're making up stuff you don't know about these students? Why?

I haven't made up anything about them. I've stated a simple, numerical fact: In any university, the odds that these kids have been to Palestine is so slim that I feel comfortable saying: "They haven't been to Palestine" and, if any of them had, it would be so few that all it would do is prove that in any point of data there's always some floating incident that sits on the outside of the mean. It doesn't take a lot of knowledge to know that these student protests are mostly performative. They are people who are swayed by the latest, popular trends and causes and flock to things that make them appear righteous.

The usual reason people make stuff up is because the argument they want to make is fallacious. That's probably the case here.

Now the tables are turned: How do you know I'm wrong? How do you know I'm making it up? It seems very reasonable to say that very few people from the US are visiting Palestine before their 30th birthday. Something like 4 million people visit Palestine each year in a world with over 7 billion people. That means 0.05% of the world population visits there each year, and that's on the assumption that none of those are people repeating the trip for any number of reasons. Given the most common and popular places to visit for younger people doesn't include Palestine, and given that it's often a dangerous place, you tell me why you'd assume I'm making it up, as opposed to being simply reasonable?

So with the understanding that all odds are in favour of these people never having been to Palestine, why would you say that "Most people make stuff up because they want to make a fallacious argument"? and assume that's probably the case here? Do you know me personally? Have we talked about this subject before?...

... Or were you just making a reasonable assumption based on what you know to be true?

No, but these are pointless questions. Does everyone visit Palestine before university?
My point stands true for the majority. You could pick just about any statement that holds true for the majority and cherry pick specific circumstances under which there are outliers. It doesn't prove the rule at all.

I'm sorry, you're just not right. If you go on any website on the Internet that isn't a little backwater free-speech site, and you say "If we're being honest, of course teenagers do know the difference between right and wrong, do know exactly what they do and don't want, and do know how to consent," people will scream at you that they have undeveloped brains, that it's horrific that you think those things, and that you're obviously a pedophile. I've been there enough times to know. Millennials and Zoomers are really and truly losing sight of the fact that 16 and 6 are not the same age.

You are mistaking Reddit and other online communities for what the world at large understands. I'm sorry, you're just not right. What you'll find is that online communities where people are anonymous and thrive on popular opinion differ greatly from the real world, where you sit down with a person and say something and they are looking you in the eye and hearing your words.

Even in the online communities, there's a difference between the knee-jerk reaction to the implication of pedophilia and the rush to be the most virtuous one to decry it... And the actual understandings of the facts of adolescents. Everyone might be in a rush to say the right thing, but even these performative people understand that there's a difference between: "We don't permit sexual interaction with children" and "Children don't do anything sexual in their room with the door closed"... And, hopefully, you understand the difference as well, and how that difference is expressed much more firmly when it comes from adults and children, as opposed to children on their own or children and other children.

There's no single "the law" - there's a different law for every country and every state. What you're saying is true for California, where it's against the law for two fifteen year olds to have sex with each other. It's not true for most states, where it's perfectly legal for two fifteen year olds to have sex with each other.

That's not really relevant. All that does it show that, in some places, the law differs. In those places they have different laws, and that can be because of different beliefs, different needs... In some places laws just linger unchanged despite everyone knowing they should be. There are some places it's legal to have normal, penetrative sex with an animal, but illegal to have anal sex with them. Do you think that's because they all sat down and agreed that some animal is okay, so long as it's Christian? Or do you think maybe it's a lingering law they didn't feel the need to change?

The point is, there are laws against children sexually molesting other children in a lot of places, because we typically agree children shouldn't be involved in those activities. In places where there aren't, it's likely not a result of people all agreeing kids should be able to have sex with other kids and that's normal and healthy - It's likely due to a feeling that parents should be handling those responsibilities without further damaging the child's growth by getting them caught in the legal system.

Of course we base cultural morality, at least in part, on what's biologically normal.

Only in part, and as I pointed out, that makes it irrelevant to the argument. Murder is natural. Cannibalism is natural. Rape is natural. We don't base our laws on what is natural - we might take aspects of it, but it's pointless to argue that because something occurs in nature it shouldn't be illegal.

Also, you keep mentioning culture and society. I can't help you there - having sex with children is repugnant and repulsive. That's just how people find it. You can argue it shouldn't be, if you're so inclined, but that's like the people on Reddit arguing that we should all be okay having sex with transexuals, regardless of their actual sex. They can say it all they like and demand you agree, but normal people in the street will never be okay with it.

Anyway, I understand your overall point - Like I said, nobody is under the impression that at the stroke of midnight on your 18th birthday, you are instantly blessed by an angel to be able to have sex, drive, drink and get a tattoo. It's an age we all kind of shrugged and said: "Seems about right" to. Some people will be mature, intelligent 17 year old people, some people will be immature, unprepared 20 year olds. You have to draw a line in the sand, otherwise you would be constantly renegotiating the process every day and no two people would ever feel safe entering a relationship until they had grey hair. I hope you enjoyed the conversation we had - you're always free to debate the topic and shouldn't feel attacked for doing so. Understand that it disgusts most people, and we live in a cynical age of victimhood and accusation... And not many people want to get philosophical about when it's okay to screw over a beer... So it's not likely you'll find many chances to talk about it, sorry.

Good luck!

That's at least partially because your points all refer back to the same process, or are the same question worded slightly differently. I hope this helps.

1) Those are legal functions. Buying beer and renting are legal process. We aren't pretending it's different, it is different, because last year you were a minor and this year you are an adult. That's the function that distinction serves - to legally allow us to create a time we can generally agree is the right time for these activities. There's no social function at play except to say that we, typically, agree to that age despite there being little to factually distinguish it or scientifically distinguish it for want of a better way to lay it out.

2) I don't really care what a small minority of people think about children's activity of capacity. It's irrelevant to this conversation and life in general. You can always find a handful of people who think some stupid bullshit. As a rule, society doesn't think these things. What we do know to be true is, as I've pointed out, while some children may be capable of making certain choices, most are not equipped to do that.

3) I don't think you're making a point at all here. Yes, sometimes children date and do things with children. Sexual activity under the age of consent is still against the law. Two kids aren't meant to be having sex. We view it the same way - it doesn't matter what a child thinks is fine for them, they aren't capable of making the choice.

We don't really go: "Eh, I'll allow it". We make it illegal and let the law decide what's worth enforcing - most of the time the assumption is: The parents will take care of the matter. They are just stupid kids.. When it's an adult, it's not fine. You should know better. If or not you find them attractive is relevant only in as much as: it doesn't matter, don't do it.

4) Biologically normal isn't really relevant here. It's biologically normal for penguins to fuck their dead and for lions to eat zebras alive. We don't base the legal system and the morality of our society by what's biologically normal.

It is punished as a normal crime. We don't have distinctions in the law for "aberrations of nature". People might find it more reprehensible, and they are right to do so, because it is, but there's not a legal category for things "Unnatural"... Otherwise we wouldn't punish murder at all.

We don't lose track of the idea of kids sexually assaulting kids. It's a serious crime and we punish it like any other. Maybe parents don't like to talk about it and try and pass it off as "Kids will be kids", but we still see it as a problem.

I think there's some false premises you're working on, and some sophistic ones as well, and I'll do my best to address them, understanding that, as you've pointed out, this is a hot button topic, so most people won't want to engage in any way.

1) You're correct, there's far more categories for humans than simply "Minor" and "Adult". For the purpose of this specific conversation and the laws surrounding it, and to avoid constantly having to shift, mitigate, forgive, condemn various actions based on the individual or the minute changes in age and circumstance, we create these categories and stick to them - The, somewhat arbitrary, age that we agree to be Too Young and the age we agree to be Old Enough. It isn't based on some strict definition, and it would be almost impossible for it to be so. Instead it's a handshake where society says: "We'll never know the perfect age for each individual to start doing various adult things, so we'll all just agree that it be age XX and leave it at that".

This isn't just satisfactory, it's necessary. The same as we don't modify the rule of law for every individual, but rather allow the justice system to judge them based on their individual circumstances, we need to do the same for these laws. We don't make it illegal to steal unless your Dad is dying of cancer and you need money for his treatment... But when you get to court, we expect a judge to be more lenient on someone in those circumstances. By the same token, we all know that Minor and Adult are chosen at a good guess at best for the purposes to determining an age limit on certain activities, but we expect a judge to take into account the circumstances around it.

2) True, but, again, for legal purposes, you could continue this divide forever. Pre-pubescent kids, toddlers, infants, kids currently going through puberty, people who are the right age to start puberty but haven't, people who started puberty young, people who haven't gone through puberty but are very intelligent and mature... The list could stretch forever. While it's not perfect, we accept that the legal treatment of these people needs to be general and allow the court to make their own judgements.

3) Obviously this changes from person to person, but it's the same as point 1 - We don't all believe that people who are 17 years, 364 days, 23 hours, 59 mins and 59 seconds old are mindless, drooling children who, in 1 second time, will become intelligent adults. Instead we agree that there's no single point where that's universally true, but there needs to be an agreed point for us to treat the law and the people equally. Otherwise, when people started turning 12, we'd be having yearly tests of their maturity by phycologists and doctors to see if they are adults yet, and then there would be primers on how to pass those tests going around online... It isn't viable for us to expect the world to treat every individual as an individual in this broad a sense.

4) Very few people think that, but we agree that children are ill equipped to understand these things. They don't have the experience or the understanding of the world, are still very much driven by basic wants and desires, don't have a good grasp of the future or what the world expects of them, so on, so forth. There's a reason we have to teach kids not to play with fire, or not to go out and party all night before an exam. If they were capable of understanding the harm their actions were going to bring them, it wouldn't be necessary to protect them from anything... But that simply isn't the case.

5) See above. It's not impossible any one child might know what they want, but we understand that children in general don't know what they want. They are short sighted and impulse driven. It's not just a stereotype. You might say you know a child that is mature, intelligent and knows what they want in life... But the fact will remain that, if you have 1,000 kids in a room and threw a stone, the odds are you'd hit one who doesn't. As a result, we need to create our laws and rules around the understanding of what is true typically and let the individual issues become a matter for a court or jury to determine.

6) See above. Same thing, different window dressing.

7) To give you the benefit of the doubt here, I'll assume we're talking about someone who has physically matured and is attempting to look older - make up, clothes, environment, etc. Yes, accidents can happen. If you're talking about before a person matures, I would say that's unnatural, yes, and I think most people would agree. That being said, because we don't have much choice but to pick a time when a person is considered an "Adult", we have to treat them in this way. If your point is: "Why do we punish them if we agree it can happen?" - Because we need to have this agreed age in order to create reliable laws, we have to rely, then, on the legal system to judge if the person's actions were reasonable and forgivable.

8) See above. We know they can, we accept that they can, we just acknowledge that, as a rule, the majority of them aren't mature enough to understand or control what they feel. We also agree that a mature, intelligent adult can manipulate and control these children, meaning that they can easily take someone who isn't ready, convince them they are and be heedless of the results. Is it always true? No. Is it true often enough that we have to worry about it and make laws to prevent it?... Yeah, sadly.

9) That's the same point as the two above, just a different coat of paint.

10) I'm not sure what you're saying. We agree that children can sexually assault each other, we just treat them differently under the law, as mentioned above.

So, in essence, what you're arguing is that there's more nuance to life than we recognise in the law, and that's always true. It's why we don't simply have a computer that we input your crime and receive your punishment. We use a court system so that the law can be general to treat everyone equally, and then the outcome can be moderated by a human who understands that there's circumstances which differ from person to person. If your argument is that pedophiles don't get treated with much nuance - Hard to say you're wrong, but I totally understand why. Children are innocent, easily led, and things like this can easily ruin their growth and alter their whole lives going forward. The same way we naturally react with disgust at the murder of a child, we naturally act with disgust at the harm of a child in this way.

What it might help to argue is that there needs to be better methods of treating people who are pedophiles and agreeing on helping those who seek treatment without judgement. It's just one of those fucked up things nobody asks to happen to them, and if someone is trying to get help, good. That's what we want, right? Not for them to hide it until they act on it, but to try and fix it. It's till gross... If I found out a friend was like that, I'd still be repulsed... But that's half the issue.

While it's most probably all a lie, as I can't imagine too many men hanging around while their girlfriend goes out and has their breasts lopped off, dumps hormones into their system until they have a beard, gets plastic surgery to have a mock-penis slapped on and then wants to get married, could you imagine the mental state of the poor dude if he actually existed? You find a girl who seems cool and enjoys the things you enjoy... Then she tells you she wants all this stuff, and that liking sports and video games makes her a man.

I'm always heart broken when I take advantage of the poor "Sandwich artist" at Subway by asking them for a 6 inch roast chicken and salad with chipotle sauce. :(

I have to assume that it's a pretty eclectic mix of people who hire hookers. There's got to be some abusive, indifferent, fucked up losers in there... But there must also be people who work hard and work odd hours and just have more money than they do time to get out and mingle, or people who are just lonely and really shitty at social stuff and don't have much hope of meeting someone, or ugly people who saved up and just can't stand the idea of slapping their own junk around again tonight, and virgins who just want to know what it's like... In fact, I kinda thought the idea behind making it legal and such was to help prevent the more awful types from taking advantage of them? Wouldn't their customer base become more human to them as they found themselves being called out to the home of drugged up no-hopers less often?

I love some of those demands the whores have on their sign. Beyond the ones that would make their jobs better than normal jobs, like demanding free mental health support, they also want flexible working hours. I didn't know the Belgian government were demanding whores work from 8am till 6pm, 6 days a week. I kinda thought whores either worked when they wanted or when their pimp told them to.

I also got a chuckle out of that one that was saying their pimps think of them as product to be sold... Yeah, kinda. I don't know if you noticed, but when you're trying to rent a woman for an hour, the woman is the product. Like if you're paying a handyman to fix your roller door, the handyman is the product - You're paying for him to do things. Their ads don't say: "Dave is a REAL human with REAL feelings, so you should respect him!". They say: "We can send a guy to fix anything in your house! All hours, no call out fee!!"

Fuck me! Fuck me!" if, afterwards, they both look each other in the eye and share a silent moment of complete dissonance as they attempt to partition what just happened along with the idea that this woman doesn't feel enough like a woman to use "She/Her".

Woman stuffs her pants with a fake 🍆 to go to her 10YO sibling's birthday party and wonders why her dad thinks it's innapropriate by BenitoGreen99 in TumblrInAction

I know we all know this, because we aren't fucking simpletons, but:

First of all, your father wasn't looking at your crotch like some kind of pervert. Humans have the capacity to notice strange things, and when they notice, they look at them to confirm. If you stuffed a pack of playing cards between your arse cheeks and then put on tight pants, people will notice there's a strange lump in your pants when they look at you. This isn't them staring at your arse, this is their ability to instantly glance and summarize a person's shape with the power of their primary and peripheral vision working together - and when there's an out of place lump, their brain instantly notices, draws attention to it and your father, rightly, said something about the fact you seemed to be hiding something in your pants.

Second of all - it's a party for 10 year old kids. At some stage you have made the following conscious choices before leaving that morning:
1) This will be a day and an event that I need to bring my artificial penis.
2) Despite claiming to be a man, this will be a day and event where some tight pants are appropriate.
3) Having claimed to be a man and still gone with pants that most men wouldn't wear to a children's party, and having installed your fake penis despite going to a children's party, you reviewed the lump in your pants so obvious that your own father instantly spotted it and said: "Yes, this what I want to show at a children's party"...

... The absolute fucking gall of you to stand there and accuse your father of inappropriate activity after this was your thought pattern is utterly disgusting.

Just a note - I checked back on this and the name of the doctor has been removed by Reddit.
Seems the mods might consider Doxxing okay, and declare that calling out an individual for their medical advice isn't Doxxing, but the Admins might not agree.

This is going to sound very "Back in my day" of me, but I seem to recall students at my university... Myself included... Having $20 to feed them for a whole week, putting together meals from canned foods, 2 min noodles, bread and spread. If I was going to be doing this, I don't see how that would have changed my student diet all that much. Even the prep is roughly the same - Open packet, eat content.

I know we like to joke around, but, yeah, they likely are miserable. The genuine ones with an actual mental illness are in a pretty damn rotten situation - they have a problem that doesn't have a good solution, and no solution can be found because to question the current, horrid, life ruining medical solution is a kind of modern blasphemy.

The ones who just jump on the band wagon for likes or because they get their rocks off pretending to be women? Meh. When you hurl yourself into a pit of misery, I don't care that you find it miserable. S'kinda what you signed up for.

I don't know that the claim is that they are different. I think the meme suggests they are the same people... Also, I'm not sure why you're explaining it to me.

I think that's part of it, sure.
Kids do stupid stuff when they are young. In the 60's it was getting high and wearing overly-dyed clothes and screaming "Stop war!" at people who had been drafted and returned home from a war they didn't want to fight. In the 90's it was dressing in black and wearing chains and claiming you were going to summon a demon at your friend's house while listening to music that contained human screams as the backing. Now it's pretending to be a super special type of person and being personally offended by anything and everything...

... But there's a difference now. There's social media.

Where as, if you wore 6 inch soled boots and dyed your hair black and got a lip ring in the 90's your parents just rolled their eyes at you until, one day, seeing that nobody gave a fuck about your favourite band, you just kinda... Washed off all the make up and got a job... Now if you say you're one of the meaningless, special types and complain, companies and governments bend over backwards for no reason at all. People call you brave and beautiful, you get likes and retweets, people attack the people who say you're wrong for you, they make laws to protect you from people actually saying facts to your face and people who dare to challenge you can lose their jobs... Where as hippies had next to no power, this is a massive step up for fads and crazes. We're talking about something so meaningless it actually impacts less than 1% of the population, but businesses are making ads about it and calling their paying customers rude names if they don't like the ad.

With that kind of power suddenly thrust into the hands of someone so stupid that they wake up and think: "I'll just call myself a boy today. Why not?", these kinds of things are inevitable. They are already the kind of people who get caught up in trends, it's just that these trends usually resulting in mostly negative outcomes. Now they are rewarded in large scale and news reporters call them heroes... If you're the kind of person easily addicted to social pressure, and that social pressure is constantly telling you that you're great... It's all downhill.

You can report moderators to Reddit admins... But that's like reporting crooked cops to the mobsters that paid them off.

Might be worth the 30 seconds anyway, just to flood them with reports till they have to at least respond and make themselves look worse when they say: "This illegal activity is acceptable here."

I hope this trend continues until it is once again popular to tell whiny, ignorant idiots to shut up and to love and respect your country. I don't think we should pay $270,000 every time it happens, but, hell, if it makes people remind these morons that they aren't welcome, great!

I'm not sure how the American dollar is doing right now, but I suspect that's a little more than a kegger and some strippers, yeah?

I don't know about worse, but I think I can take a shot at the reason it has its own word: If I had to guess, I'd say partially because only one is equal part religion and race, same as if someone hated Muslims you'd use "Anti-Muslim" because that's the term for the religion, where as "Arabic" is a race, so that would purely be "Racism". Partially because the others didn't originate from something so internal and, thus, debated - You could hate a Saracen or a Moore in the middle ages, but that was fine because they were far away and you were often at war with them. Jews were your neighbours, had their own district, their own businesses, all in towns near by, and you weren't at war with them... But you still hated them, thus earning a special kind of attention. Same as we might identify the fracture between internal groups as "Classist", because that's where the internal divide was.

And, lastly, because, as you're insinuating, Jews work together very tightly and, because of this history of being forced to be insular, they usually come together on stuff like this pretty quickly, and in the modern world, where being the victim is being elevated, it's an easy stepping stone to get everything you want.

I think the origin of antisemitism dates back to when they were forced out of their homeland, settled in other lands, refused to assimilate to those lands and brought money lending rules that defied the local, Christian money lending rules... Specifically Interest, which made people think they were greedy. In those times, if you were considered something negative, you were socially excluded, which caused them to be isolated and hang out together and hire each other for jobs, hence: "Jews always hire other Jews and give each other the leg up in the world. They are greedy and work together to dominate things."

That kinda feels like extreme capitalism rather than communism, right? If I'm renting everything I own, someone is profiting, and it's not the people. Wouldn't the communist version be that I get a small, one room apartment and a number of goods assigned to me by the state?
