idgi, are you seriously asking for sources for a metaphor?
just because one person lied about an issue doesn't mean said issue is all bullshit just look at the statistics.
Of course it doesn't degrade anyone, it's just, you know, a fucking lie.
Why don't you tell Sabrina Rubin Erdely I said hi?
]Sure, that's a fact of biology, but then there's a layer of social constructs and behaviors, and the "rape culture" isn't as big as that. It needs to be pointed out and fought when it happens, but rape culture itself isn't natural, it's still a crime, and it's recognized as such in society.
Its cute you would try to conflate people crying online about this bullshit with actual activists, as if anyone that ever took part in one of those were actually fighting for anything.
let's say the govt. offers help to poor people, and the feminists activist start crying and whinning so said government help is only given to poor people of the female gender and all help taht was given to poor people of the male gender is not being given anymore (or the example I said earlier about the police not prosecuting rape agains males because it somehow makes rape against females harder to prosecute).
So they become whiny babies every time media is produced that does not cater specifically to their political whinybaby needs and gloat and dance around the media that does. Isolating each other further and further until the only difference of opinion they can stand is how much those outside of their group are trash and how bad they should be injured or threatened.
Using rape as the impetus for character motivations is one of the most problematic tropes in fiction. Rarely is it ever afforded the careful consideration it deserves. Was there more gravity given to the act on Game of Thrones than in the past on the series? I would say yes; however, it took Sansa from her growing place of power, cut her off at the knees, and put the focus on Theon’s ordeal, instead.
There’s only so many times you can be disgusted with something you love before you literally can’t bring yourself to look at it anymore. That is where I currently find myself in relation to Game of Thrones. The staff of The Mary Sue feels the same. You may feel differently.
Why do people so badly want their to be some sort of global rape culture in the west?
And these retards forget one thing. While show is set in fantasy genre and in fictional world, Martin (author of the book series) portraits middle age society quite accurately.
Bumping because we got a new season on July 26th!!
Check out the Simpsons couch gag cross over airing tonight
i've already seen it on twitter and honestly this is a longer couch gag than the homer evolution one
Yeah, just open the def and add the values to the animation.Code:[Begin Action 2]
The family of the victims raised the issue that this guy had been harassing his victims prior to this supposedly random attack, while I am putting two and two together I don't think its that big of a stretch to make.
I referred to it as an execution based on how the guy executed his victims.
I think you're missing the point I'm trying to make. My issue is with how sensationalized this affair is and the comparison to Charlie Hebdo rubs me the wrong way. It's not like the guy traveled countries over, kicked a door open and gunned down the defenseless students while chanting "CHARLES DARWIN, MOTHERFUCKERS!"
Was the guy who shot Treyvon Martin a terrorist too? No, he was a racist asshat.
The headline "Atheist Terrorist murders students" insults me personally.
I'm not slamming anyone in the topic but who the HELL would compare this to Charlie Hebdo? I find the very notion of that concept sickening to my very core. The attack at Charlie Hebdo was a planned orchestrated act of execution by Islamist Extremists to effectively silence something they found "offensive".
college educated kids are an oppresed group now?
