The gab.ai banning loli thing doesn’t really shock me given all the pedo panic that’s been going on with right-wing types as of late. Have you seen them flip their shit over Big Mouth? It’s hysterical because it’s a shitty show with a terrible art style that’s only getting attention because right-wing puritans think it’s sexualizing children and normalizing pedophilia and all this other dumb bullshit. The fact that politics has turned into an Us Vs. Them thing frustrates me greatly due to how petty it was. I remember talking with friends a few days ago on the NPC meme… Read more »

I don’t disagree that people shouldn’t lie about their situations. What I was trying to get at, is that people have a tendency to be more concerned with dropping the “hard truth bombs” rather than helping people.

Thanks for the advice on depression. I’ll incorporate it into the way I act towards… Read more »

I think a reason why activists are so inflammatory today as opposed to yesterday is because in today’s internet culture you get a lot of credit with your crowd when you pwn the opposition. There’s a lot of entertainment to be had by attacking rather than discussing. Building bridges doesn’t get nearly as much attention. But I really enjoy when people can come together and figure out ways to compromise on solutions. Or at least discuss their differing political positions. I mean I enjoy the pwnage to a degree, and it can even be useful when mocking really bad ideas… Read more »
