Thanks for your pathetic response.This is a dumb post if I ever saw one. Maybe you're just joking, but obviously people should be allowed to be wherever the hell they want.
I'm in pretty good shape so I'm not coming at this from an "I'm offended" perspective.
Now, I will agree that obesity shouldn't be shamed -- but on the flip side, it shouldn't be celebrated, either. No, being obese is not healthy, and it certainly is not beautiful. (Although the latter point is debatable because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it certainly isn't beautiful to me). Be realistic.
Regarding dating apps, I get hit up a lot by fat chicks when I'm on those apps, and all I do is either ignore them or write a polite "I'm not interested, good luck in your search" message to those that write to me. I do think that language should be more accurate and be more reflective of reality. No, chick, you're not "curvy" -- you're straight up obese. I immediately have much higher respect for chicks that label themselves "overweight" or "a few extra pounds" or whatever label exists that is more accurate than something like "curvy." Still won't go out with them though.
It was good until it went mainstream which completely misunderstood what it was about. Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation is still one of the best albums ever though.
Climate change is not an existential crisis. Humans will adapt as they always have, certain geographical areas will become more difficult to live in, others more beneficial. Anyone who is legitimately scared of this is succumbing to media overhyping that thrives on crises for clicks and views.
This, so much.. but the issue here is that many people are mental cripples without proper diagnosis. Also I am bi-polar, but everyone knows this before first date.If we are supposed to be upfreont in relatinships about any kind of sexual disease or STD etc, people should have to be upfront about their mental health conditions such as bipolar and schizophrenia.
A lot of animals surely do it too.Call it whatever you want, he is right. Discrimination is something all humans do. The only bullshit here is pretending your discrimination is better than other's
this is definitely not true, people have innate preferences that can already be observed in babies (e.g. they prefer symmetrical, 'conventionally attractive' faces over others). Likewise all humans have an innate preference for things that are familiar (unfamiliar things/people could be dangerous) which is quite likely the origin for racism. Assuming that it is taught requires that a lot of people are actively working to uphold it. No doubt true for some, but mostly it's just a naturally occuring phenomenon that gets reinforced socially in some circles.My line of thinking is that racism is something that's taught, not something you intuit.
Couldn't disagree with this more. Preferences are not racism, and most of those preferences(if they're even true, it isn't an exact science) likely come from the tribalistic past of humans and self-preservation of tribes and having to gravitate toward similar people.this is definitely not true, people have innate preferences that can already be observed in babies (e.g. they prefer symmetrical, 'conventionally attractive' faces over others).

But if you consider racism as hatred, dislike, and considering one inferior, that's a whole other thing. That's taught. And if you're a child who grows up in a multi-ethnic community or neighborhood, there is no evidence that any young child shows any innate hatred or dislike for someone based on skin color. That's garbage science the likes of Kendi and DiAngelo try to push.
Well I think you have to be taught the hatred part of racism. You may gravitate more toward hanging out and befriending people of your likeness, that happens with sex too not just race. But you’re taught to have dislike for or hatred toward people of other ethnicities. I don’t believe you just naturally will dislike based on skin color because of innate tendencies.This seems mostly like a semantic argument to me? I didn't say those preferences are racism, but I said that IMHO they lie at the origin of some forms of discrimination, like racism. Like you say, growing up in a multi-ethic society kind of inoculates you against that. But the primal tendency to shun or ridicule people who are strange or different from you is something that is innate, you in fact often have to teach children not to do it.
What about Winter Soldier?Thanos is the one of the worst, most poorly written bad guy in entertainment history. He's a stupid man written by stupid people unable to write a convincing eternal being.
He lives forever, yet wants to use infinity stones to erase half of all life? So in some millions of years everything will get back to where it was and he'll still be around to be upset by it all.
Great plan. Reducing fertility would be a far better plan.
Also, there were only two good movies in MCU. The first Irok Man and Avengers.
What about Winter Soldier?
Well, that's... More. But still lame.And AFAIK in the comics, Thanos wants to kill half of the universe to please death. Death is a female for some reason. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Either way, his motivations are stupid. But I still like Thanos as an antagonist.
Stand-up comedy is, by and large, pretty terrible. There are exceptions (Chappelle, Louis CK, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and a handful of others), but generally speaking, the whole medium of a person on stage delivering humor in this pre-written, jokey cadence is just the pits. There are quite a few standups with unbearable acts who are actually quite funny when speaking off the cuff during interviews/podcasts, or in well-writt-ups.en roles in TV or movies. I find Jim Norton to be hilarious, but I can't sit through his act for more than a few minutes. Bill Burr is a popular comedian and one of the funniest people on earth, but I had to turn off his last special about 10 minutes into it.
Jokes in a vacuum typically don't work for me - it just pales in comparison to comedy that is situational and occurs organically. Very few funny things are preceded by the statement (or implication) of someone saying "wanna hear a joke/something funny"?
Musicals also generally stink for a similar reason. In a theatrical format, there are better and less irritating ways to tell a story or get a message across than breaking out into song.
