bill maher hypothetical slave
bill maher said some stupid joke about him being a "house nigger" and one of the objections that someone had to that comment is that bill maher would have been a slave owner, not a slave. what the garbage kind of reasoning is that. It doesn't make any sense really to say what someone would have been if they'd lived in a different time because they wouldn't be them. if you're just talking about a random white person, most didn't own slaves. since it's a hypothetical anyway, he can fucking hypothesize himself as a slave, black or otherwise, because it's fucking imaginary. it's kinda fucking stupid to say he can't try to put himself in the position of a slave, because that's how people have fucking empathy, by imagining what it's like to be in someone else's position. also, the comment he was responding to was about him being in a field, implying that *he* is the slave, in the imaginary hypothetical situation that that put into his mind -- I don't remember what the actual meaning of the guest's comment was.
calling non-human animals that is racist.
just randomly remembered about some shitty fb group i requested to join once and then they said you have to read some stupid rules and agree to them before joining, so I read all the garbage rules and one of them said you can't refer to non-human animals as non-human animals because that implies that humans are animals and that somehow implies that you think black people are animals and therefore inferior to white people. stating it out like that makes the illogic clear, there's no other way to explain it.
This is me quickly trying to transcribe some crap hunter was saying:
do you know that episode of south park about teh troles and about how like stan or kyle or whoever was trolling online. we watched teh eepisode the other day and I said I didn't want to see it because it was teh season finale or something. do you remember that? [yes I remember] ok. party of that was talking about how trolling starts. doyou remembger what it said. [no] how the troll starts by saying something really ofensive and riling and another troll responds on the opposite side also saying offensie and riling things so you have these two indiidals who are unrelated to teh movement and don't care but get both sides to fight and hate each other. and the trolles just have to kick it off and teh flame wars propogates itself. i just feel a similar thing happened ... i feel like that happens a lot and south park hit the nail on the head. and i feel like the same thing happened to gamergate. sensible people were talking about htis one thing hhat happened, and people think it happened one way or nother and one thing or another should happen but thrid and fourth parties came in and took over and changed the movement to a different topic and the first two people left. [i disagree about htis history of gamergame]
The information I have about gg doesn't agree with what hunter said at all. His description of gg doesn't match the general pattern he was trying to illustrate. Trolls are conservative and they rile up righteous anger.
This is a comment I came across on fb:
"although it sounds embarrassingly White, I love my yoga pants"
what. why. how. how is it "white", why are you capitalizing "white", how is it embarrassing to be white anyway? I didn't ask the person because idk, it wasn't really relevant to the post and it was just some random person. How is it bad or "white" to go to the fucking store and pick out some fucking comfortable pants?
