Isn’t this a natural evolution of gender not being linked to biology and something you ‘identify as’? Obviously people will try to find something that describes them better.

I'd like to hear the argument for it being a natural evolution of gender.

It's just kids and emotionally undeveloped people making up things now. Ever watched little kids playing pretend? they'll just suddenly switch to some wacky variation of their original character, or add random powers to seem even more special? same damn thing.

Bottom of the (biscuit) barrel.

It wasn’t awful, but it’s so stupid. Would you go to New York and throw on a fake New York accent? She’s just so inauthentic in public… unless cringe is just her authentic self.

It was stupid, but not as cringe as I expected. I expected Joey Barton levels of Cringe where she constantly spoke in a French accent, but it was just a few words. Got a 1 on the Cringe Scale.

Joey Barton went full on fake French accent. He even paused mid sentence as if he's trying to find the word in English. Ultra cringe and gets a 8 on the Cringe Scale.

“And they gave me no actual direction in my life.”
Should parents hold your hand all the time? They gave him shelter, love and food (a little bit too much of the latter it seems), how about dude works a little bit as well? Or not, he can just be a laughing stock for others.

dont worry, this was fact checked and he said something else. all our ears are broken.

Lol. Yeah, I had to check Snopes to see if this was real. It is, but apparently it's out of context 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

While he did indeed utter the words “I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro,” and said them in that order, the context surrounding that sentence fragment does not support the claim or implication that Biden “called” or “referred to” Satchel Paige as “the great Negro.”

My own cringe today - went for a nice lunch in a high class restaurant. Going out, I see a grand piano. Took a look - Steinway. Asked when can I come back to listen to a pianist playing, got the response (this is Michelin-star restaurant): 'We don't have a pianist on staff, nobody plays on the piano".

A Mitchelin-Star restaurant for lunch. Oh la la check you out.

Just to be clear, the cringe is you asking the restaurant when you can come back and listen to somebody play the piano right? If so, I applaud your honesty.

Kids need more than food and shelter. And love is very broad. In my mind, if you love someone, you point them in the right direction. You criticize them constructively. You show them how to live in a way that will be fulfilling, happy, and relatively successful not just monetarily, but spiritually and emotionally. In fact, those things are actually more important that just affirming every whim or feeling your kids have, because sometimes feelings lead you to a bad place.

Maybe these parents did those things and this kid still chose to be whatever they are. Sometimes you do as much as you can and still fail. But I kind of doubt it. There are a lot of parents who think being a “good parent” involves constantly reinforcing every single thing their kid does, even when what they do is ridiculous or actually will harm them in the long run. We wouldn’t want to “stifle them” with our expectations, after all. And that says nothing of the parents who just surrender their children to the internet because they can’t be bothered.

It's a Steinway, have some culture in you.

Also if you don't know Michelin-star restaurants do not only have menus going into thousands of dollars or Euros, you can actually eat there quite well for a price of 2x the price of normal restaurant in Paris. Sounds like a deal to me.

Fair point, I didn't think about it this way.

Oh. My. God.

I joked once that soon people would be campaigning for pedos


I kinda understand what he is trying to say.

1. You are attracted to underage people but do not act upon your attraction. (a MAPS)
2. You are attracted to underage people and you do. (to me fuck off you are a pedo)

I think there could be some argument to what you would call a person who doesn't act upon their attraction. Much like being straight or gay or fucking furries. You like what you like? Are you a pedo if you don't do it? I don't know the answer to these things. I feel like this guy is too being too broadly inclusive (including pedos) but there may be something there to ponder.

NM, I realized this is in the Cringe Thread. Not a place to discuss this kind of stuff.

TikTok is not where this should be discussed. In a therapists office is where this should be discussed.

I'm sorry, but using this kind of platform is a move closer towards wanting acceptance.

When it comes to kids, I don't give a flying fuck if this type of person (I refuse to use MAPS...thats just word salad for pedo but havent done anything yet) is suffering from a mental health issue. I do think there should be resources available to help them not act on these impulses...as kids (and the person) is safer.

That is all I'm going to even consider moving on this issue.
Yeah I also actually looked up the definition of Pedophile. I always thought it was someone to did things to kids. I was wrong, so fuck it. They are all Pedophiles whether they do anything or not. Who knew?
