ugh, hate it when that happens. what kind of opponent are you up against this time? is it yet another of those who can't separate fiction from irl? cause we all know how fun they are. >.>

and on an unrelated note, i saw someone try and use the word "atheist" as an insult in a comment on youtube earlier. that was a first for me.

In a way, I kinda feel like the whole wide world is my opponent this time around, because an accusation of pedophilia can ruin people's lives since there's so much crap where people think that feeling the attraction is the same thing as committing the crime. It's like you just got cut off on the freeway by some idiotic driver and you feel like ramming his car at 100mph, and by these people's logic, you've actually done it even though you haven't done it.

And I'm curious: was the "atheist" insult directed at an atheist? Knowing how some folks on Youtube can be, it wouldn't surprise me. XD

Being a cuck
Not getting fries with my McNuggets

I'm so angry idk what i'm going to do

But seriously, the cuck throws a bitch fit, offs an old dude (who dindu nuffin) while filming it and then uplaods it facebook. Yet somehow the police and fbi aren't able to push a warrant through, so they track him by his phone or car (a new ford focus with gps). Thankfully a cashier at mcdonald's notice the cuck and notified the police who knows how long it would of been before they found him. Too bad the guy wasn't a politician or the NSA would of been top it right away.

Why? We all know what these initials mean (unless you can somehow mistake male circumcision for Metro Goldwyn Mayer), and they're heckuva lot easier to write out than the full names.

Actually, whenever I think of male circumcision, Metro Goldwyn Mayer pops into my head and vice versa.

People who mislabel things online and then get all bent out of shape when you remind them that wanting to commit a crime is not the same thing as actually committing the crime.

Twitter right now they've got some dipshit claiming that pedophilia is fucking kids... and no, it's actually not. It's wanting to fuck kids, but it is not actually fucking kids.

You're also correct in this way: wanting to commit a crime can come with the restraint to know not to. I've been known to zero in on exactly how to psychologically break anyone, but I'm not guilty of gaslighting because I don't do it, either because I know it's wrong or because people I hate enough to think about like that aren't worth the effort I'd have to put in.

And because pedophilia is to raping children what a rectangle is to a square. All child-rapists are pedophiles, but the reverse is not true, and like anyone with urges that can be criminal in nature, self-restraint can be used. The actual criminal act is "Statutory Rape", though possession of child pornography is another one if the child is a real person or a live action character played by a child. Then there's the argument over what constitutes pornography.

The other thing is that liking fictional characters who are fictional children not tied to real people, isn't pedophilia.

Also, while this last point is just semantics, a fetish for teenagers is ephebophilia, not pedophilia, though the two can overlap.

Like any violent urge (statutory rape is rape, so it is an act of violence), people can learn to avoid giving into it. I wouldn't know how difficult that particular one can be, but impossible isn't just something that's pretty hard. Impossible is eating the sun.

yeah, it was aimed at one. actually, the insult was "weak atheist" which leads me to wonder which is weaker, the one being insulted or the one saying the insult. i'd say the one using the insult is the weaker of the 2. >.>

Oh, the "weak atheist" thing. Yeah, that makes sense now. For some folks atheism is a belief rather than a non-belief. Those types are the "Strong Atheists," and unfortunately that kind of active belief tends to make people more fanatical. For someone like that, "weak atheist" could be a real way of insulting people.

That would explain a lot of times I've seen it. Had been told I was one when I said I'm Agnostic, but leaning toward Misotheism, except for one person who thought it meant I must apparently worship the devil.

Yeah, there's a lot of folks who mislabel things like that. Like the people who claim that Luciferianism is the same thing as Satanism, or that Rock musicians sold their soul to the devil to gain their fame because they "obviously" didn't work for it. Stuff like this is one of the reasons I rarely tell people my own beliefs. Half the time when I state an opinion on any given thing people just assume I'm [insert belief here] and almost nothing is going to change their minds.

I actually was one of those people who made that assumption about you a while back on another site, so I've been on both ends. Sorry about that, by the way. I was kind of a dick to you back then.

Funny how you never see people do that when you say something they like or agree with.

huh, mandatory ads and hugbox mode... now i have 2 reasons not to go there aside from the odd sourcing stuff.

Sincerely hoping that was something they did for April 1st and simply forgot to undo it.

Thank you. I don't remember who you were (and judging by your comment, I imagine you probably don't want to tell me), but no worries. I tend to forgive people a lot more readily than my fiery, grating personality often suggests.

"Short fuse, small explosion" is a good philosophy in my book. Bottling things up is what makes anger last so long in the first place.


for crying out loud, youtube! give an error message of some kind or don't load the page at all!

i'm trying to get a video to load only this time everything except the VIDEO is loading. usually nothing but the video loads when the site f's up.

it's not telling me to restart my device (stupid website) so theres that at least. but i guess i'll either have to wait a little bit and try again or just download the video.

edit: well, rebooting the router didn't work so i don't know what's wrong with youtube right now.


the cognitive dissonance that must be going on in the brains of gay nazi furries


To be honest? I can mainly only be irritated these days. I eventually just got tired of being mad all the time when I was younger. Its a waste of my personal energy, but if we're talking frustrating...

People who think they understand how your mind works and try to tell you that to your face like you're a slow wit. That NEVER ceases to bother me.

Doublethink is crucial to the survival of Oceania. Anything else would be doubleplusungood.


pardon my politics please but this thread is about what makes us angry and...seeing and hearing about this makes me pretty darn angry. quite pissed at those that allow it to happen AND continue to happen.

there are no words for this level of sheer madness. to think that i live in a world where shit like this happens on pretty much a daily basis is just...

an angry mob attacking and fire bombing a police car. 2 clips after that showing POLICE fleeing from large armed gangs. then a gang savagely beating someone...

if anyone on this site is from france. i feel bad for you. no country deserves this and no one deserves to live in such conditions that fearing for your life is just an every day thing.

WTF is it with the cops out there? Are they not allowed to fight back or something?

And judging by the commentary on the video, I have to wonder what is going through this Marcon's mind that he is basically saying "screw you" to his constituents. Because he obviously doesn't care about his countrymen.

it's not much different from what i've heard about germany...months, if not a year or so, ago.

riots, gangs, other stuff on top of the usual terror attacks... if anything the cops in france are probably about as scared of, and angry at, the attackers as those of germany.

he sounds like a 2nd angela merkel to me.


Seeing more and more references to "white working class voters" in connection with Donald Trump, as if to say that if you're white and working class you're somehow not really human and have no real right to vote.

What angers me even more than this though is how any challenge to this thinly veiled anti-white racism is deemed "fake news" by the same bigots who practice it.

A combative response by police is usually going to just escalate things. There is no way to distinguish who is a threat in these situations, and firing into a crowd, no matter how unruly, is a great way to cause collateral damage


And since my attempt at avoiding a double post got me editing after someone else already posted, here it is in its own post (and the original edited back to what it was before I edited it).

People who complain about female Argonians having boobs in the Elder Scrolls games because they're "unrealistic."

I mean, we're talking about a franchise that takes place on another world, and for all we know an entirely different universe. There are telepathic trees, people who can shoot fire and ice out of their hands, children who cannot be killed even when a gigantic overpowered dragon shows up and slaughters his parents... then after all is said and done he wanders around aimlessly and might say "My parents died, I'm so sad" one single time then continue on with life like nothing happened. You've got scrolls that can send you back in time or give you visions just by reading them, you've got a meteor hanging suspended in mid-air over the city of Vivec in Morrowind, and you've got dragons who get born into the body of humans and are revered as the "Dragonborn" throughout the franchise...

If someone said that any of these things were real in this world, they'd be laughed at, even bullied and referred to online as "special snowflakes" for some of those things, but they're perfectly acceptable in a fantasy setting because everyone knows it's fantasy...

But then show those same people a lizard woman with boobs in that franchise and they lose their shit over how "unrealistic" it is.

*smh*

Point missed hard. The purpose of connecting white middle-class voters to Trump is to point out that systemic racism is still as massive a problem as ever. Trump never bothered to hide how much of a bigot he was and a massive majority of white people frankly just gobbled up everything he had to say.

The fact that people voted for someone who was so blatantly pandering to and preying upon their fears and prejudices IS a symptom of deep-seeded, institutional, casual racism, and that's so because most people JUSTIFIED their voting for this man by making a point of OVERLOOKING his racism.

Also, as far as I know, the only people using the term 'fake news' lately are Trump and his supporters.

Ehh. It was far from a "vast majority" of whites. A 21% difference. Geographical location was a major factor as well, and most whites in blue areas seem to hate him just as much as anyone else. The obvious exception to this would be the rust belt, who cast their vote for economic purposes more than anything. He had a non-negligible amount of support from even Hispanic voters in traditionally red areas. His rhetoric was never centered around genetics, it was always nationalism, which tends to be more accessible. Immigrants are often extremely patriotic people, and he pressed some of those buttons more than his competition, so, contrary to the popular idea, he wasn't automatically rejected by all of them, either.

Nationalist rhetoric aside, he's still a bigot and he never really tried to hide it (my 'favorite' incident being when he openly mocked a disabled reporter, with a close second being the incident where he mocked Prisoners Of War; Both are issues that hit extremely close to home for me, what with being neurologically disabled and coming from a Jewish family, as well as my father having been a wartime combat medic), and a lot of the things he wanted to do disproportionately targeted non-white people, so yeah.

I don't mean to sound like I'm splitting hairs. I think it's just important to note that it is a little blurrier than it seems.
