lmao yea getting fifteen minutes of e-fame and tickets to a children's movie is definitely worth weeks of your life.
Shamless pandering and almost self-parodic SJW trash
You come across as a gigantic privileged asshole. You can't live a relaxed care free life when you're drowning in debt or being shot by the police. You can't just 'take it easy' when large swaths of society see you as lesser than an animal. Get your head out of your ass op.
Growing up in the 80s, I always identified as a democrat, even as a child. This wasn't because of my support for social welfare programs, unions or even LGBT rights, I hadn't truly grasped any of these concepts until further into my teenage years, the actual reason was far more basic: Liberals were laid back hippies and conservatives were uptight snobs. Now, many decades later, I'm mortified by the disgraceful state of the Republican party... but I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't feeling totally disenfranchised with my own party as well. Democrats have become just as anxious and uptight as Republicans, a society where both sides are occupied by helicopter parents and mentally fragile kids who wallow in perpetual agitation. There's no place for people whose philosophy hinges on living a laid back, carefree, fun and chill life. This reminded me of an about how liberals were becoming Puritans in their lifestyle choices, and it encapsulates my feelings greatly: So, Era, I ask you: Where have all the hippies gone? What happened to that beautiful ideology of carefree relaxation? And can it ever return?
This site over reacts and gets rigidly out of shape over little stuff. The guy is acting a goof for his fans. Stop hating and find something more productive for your negative emotions.
Call me crazy but some women like when you are an asshole to them it’s worked for me plenty of times. First don’t over compliment them tell them that they look nice and that’s it. Don’t use words like beautiful and gorgeous and fine. On those sites guys tell them how gorgeous they are all day so they don’t really need to hear it from you and hell its not like some of them aren’t already big headed enough so keep the compliments to a minimum or none at all. Next I wouldn’t even mention that I have my own place and a career maybe you’re sorta flaunting that to them and you don’t want them to want you for the wrong reasons so I’d Dutch on all dates or let them cover the bill, again you wanna come off as an asshole but not too much of one. And lastly come off as if you don’t really need them make them feel as if they are replaceable. Never overreach for their attention if you guys are texting and she doesn’t reply to your text don’t send a second one make sure every text is a reply to hers. And when she does text you never reply right away and when she asks why you are responding so slow say you are busy dealing with important shit. Try the asshole approach it will work trust me.
Instead of saying I can't do this or that or I have bad luck etc just put positive energy out there and you shall receive that back. Not in shape? Go to the gym. In shape? Go to the gym. A gym is a great place to meet new girls. Usually goes like this: 1. Meet girl at gym. 2. Work out together. 3. Hangout outside of gym. 4. Hangout inside her. (Or hanging hmmm) 5. Hopefully it lasts. Rinse and repeat.
Many defenders of TLJ have always tried to portray people who didn't like the film as racists, sexists, misogynists. That's why they don't like when someone says I didn't like the film/her character but abuse is absolutely unacceptable. It ruins the narrative and they can't paint everyone with the same brush.
But her character WAS useless to the movie. It just felt to me like Disney needed more "representation" of a certain demographic. How funny would it have been if Finn and Chewie went on this mission while not understanding each other? It would have been great. Now for this to actually "upset people", thats another story. But we should still be able to criticize something
pathetic twisting of my words on your part--no man nor women is ruler over me, just saying. You were better off staying away from the keyboard instead of trying to low blow me--you're to old for that shit.
Oh no, please, don't gun me down with your magic space weapons that don't exist. As that seems to be the only way you think you can be an activist. I mean, actual black activists something, and they didn't need a Wakanda. What are you doing? Flailing around that no one takes your fantasy about a magic African warlord killing white people for you seriously? You think you can change the world? Do it then. Those people tried. Do it for Killmonger. Go on. Kill all the white people, the women and children too. Give all minorities guns, destablize the country, and do it without being killed, of course. You don't have the excuse of the Avengers stopping you. What's your malfunction?
They’re domesticated and invasive so that’s 100% wrong on every level.I would say that it’s fine to let them out if you leash them, build an enclosure, or ensure you’re supervising, but most people who let their cats out don’t do that. No, what you’re doing is actually cruel and negligent for the reasons I listed. If it were up to me, someone would take your cat away from you and you should potentially face a charge for animal cruelty.
Don’t know anything about him but google tells me that he’s recently been spending big money to sway which DAs get appointed. Didn’t go well but that would have given him quite a pull.
I will but I want you to know. You’ll never be one of us. You’ll never know what it’s like to not know your uncle because he was murdered in Texas for being a Mexican man in the wrong place. You’ll never know what it’s like to know the reason your parents moved out of their home town was because the KKK didn’t approve of their marriage. This is more than DNA. It’s a culture, experience, and history. I understand you want to know more but it’s not something you can just say you’re a part of because you found out you’re Mexican three days ago. And we’re not Latinos. We’re Chicanos. If you’re going to wear that digital brown face at least understand why the difference is important to many of us.
This case is about a family that was torn apart for nothing, fuck his warrant, you care about the law while your president takes a dump on it every day, and you know what?, fuck you both too.
I am becoming more and more convinced it’s just angsty young teens with their parents Comcast emails trying to out do each other with the quickest shitty 1-2 line hot take. There is almost no substance in this thread. It’s 80% WHHHHAAAA FUCK GOVERNMENT AND ICE AND TRUMP AND TROOPS” about 10% “Laws though” 5% more “FUCKEM ALL ANYWAYS DONT LET THEM EAT PIZZA DO YOU EAT HAM ON PIZZA?” And 5% “???” When people here say we need UBI it’s because they know they have no usable and transferable skills and don’t know what they are going to do when their free ride ends. There is not much room for healthy conversation. (Like you mentioned)
This forum prides itself in it's "inclusiveness" and its "progressiveness" yet constantly seem to mirror the circle jerking that goes on in less "inclusive" and "progressive" places. The lack of logical or rational discussion here is disgusting. You either jump on the dog pile or get the fuck out.
He was here illegally and had a warrant Good riddance
I get that you’re upset that I’m criticising a film that you like, but come on. I’ve expressed my disgust for people that would do such a thing to an actress in this situation. I’m expressing my opinion that the film is so utterly disappointing that a backlash is understandable. I’ve made it so very clear that personal attacks are pathetic. It’s a reasonable opinion relevant to the conversation. You want to pretend that everyone loves the movie and what I’m saying isn’t true?
Alrighty. Please extrapolate on that.
There's no evidence. Hampton brandon is just joking around like he always does Anyway, the community is starting to turn on Ice after yesterdays drama. He's a disgusting person treating his gf like that
I still would.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
any time i see a director/actor sexual assault comes to my mind. can't respect any of them.
You are 100% correct but you are also fighting a losing battle there. Look, if you saw someone who is the same race or nationality as me committed a terrible crime and you came to me saying something like "I see one of yours is in trouble again" I'd be so angry. I'd be annoyed that you want to use my nationality or race against me and I'd be mad that you want to shame me for something that someone else has done. Problem is that SO MANY people want to do stuff like that. A ridiculous number of people just can't keep themselves away from that kind of thing. In 2018 we've got to a stage where public expressions of racism are frowned upon but it doesn't matter because so many people still hold those views. They just don't express them. So they look for other ways to do things. Are you a Star Wars fan? I am. "Oh, I see one of yours was harassing women on the Internet". As if it's MY problem. As if I'm somehow responsible. As if I have some connection to the people doing this sh!t other than "we kind of like the same things, maybe". You can probably see it with football fans in the UK. If there's a 10 person fight at a Liverpool match with 50k+ plus people in attendance you'll get Manchester United fans saying "see Liverpool supporters are violent scumbags who can't behave at a football match". It's not racism or anything serious like that but it has similar roots. There's "Us" and there's "Them" and we're more than happy to find the absolute worst of "Them" with the goal of using it as a stick to beat the normal ones. There's a certain type of person who is ALWAYS looking for someone to bully but their bullying takes the form of trying to associate decent people with terrible people based on some arbitrary commonality. I would say that NOBODY on Reset Era is even remotely in favor or in support of what these trolls have done but you STILL have people in these threads implying that Reset Era is full of people who are just A-OK with this kind of racism and harassment. The people doing this “Star Wars fans are the worst” thing would have been your everyday racists back in the day. They've just found a way to engage in the same behavior but the stakes are much, much, lower so it's kind of seen as acceptable. Luckily for everyone it's not a big deal as who REALLY gives a crap about Star Wars fandom anyway. So even when we have an example of legitimate racism focusing itself on this young lady there are people who just use that as an excuse to target "Star Wars Fans". You think the;s people give a crap about Kelly Marie Tran? They don't. They are just f*cking delighted to have a stick to beat "fandom" with. Post # 4 was "Embarrassing and disgusting. Fans are always the worst part of anything". Post # 5 was "The Star Wars fandom really is the worst in existence." These folks don't care about the issue. They just can't wait to bash someone who doesn't deserve it. Sure, you can point out that these trolls are total pricks and awful human beings and you can feel legitimate bad about what they have put her through. For me the two most obvious reactions here are to condemn the trolls and to feel sympathy for the victim and to feel outrage about what they've done. Within 30 minutes or so of the OP going up we have jumped on to "Star Wars Fans are the worst" though so you have to wonder what some people are thinking. If folks are not going to condemn the specific people doing this and they're not going to express sympathy for the victim but they ARE going to try and associate regular folks with a problem they neither created nor supported then what the hell is going on there?
Speaking of toxic Star Wars fans....
Thanks for letting me know because I deeply value your opinions, lel.
You sound like you need to get back on your medicines. Just because Japanese imperialists are bad, doesn't means Chinese twitter can start posting made up news without proper sources.
That doesn’t make you a good actress that makes you a woman Amiright!!!! Up top bro ?
you do realize this is played in reverse right? She's stoic and then he turns around and says something to those standing behind him which elicits laughter. smh
Any harrasment like this is abhorent. Lumping a group of people together and blaming them as a collective is equally abhorent.
I'm totaly with you OP, everything is fucked up today. Everyone is crying about their rights and equality instead of focusing on the important things. Everyone thinks they are special, but I tell you something, nobody is special.
What? They should be able to refuse whatever they want. They are the artist. They can't be forced to do shit. Maybe I want to draw a picture for person A but not person B. There can't be a force aside from lost business that makes me do it for person B. If person B wants a thing and I won't do it then find someone else. Also in this case didn't the baker offer numbers and other places to get their cake made? The CNN page for this says "He offered to make any other baked goods for the men. "At which point they both stormed out and left," he said." - It feels like these guys were just baiting shops to say no and start a shit show over this. If I ask an artist to do something for me and they say no and let's pretend I can force them will the creation be worth it? If I am looking for a creative person to make me something I want them to enjoy it and have the result of their talent not the result of a lawsuit or a threat forcing their hand to make me something. It is insane to think the baker should be forced to do shit. If that is the case then how about he draw a stick figure on the cake and fill it with toothpaste? How about he make it with cardboard in it? He doesn't want to do it and was respectful of the couple that asked. It doesn't say he called them names or was derogatory against them - he just refused.
The shitting on the SW and the fanbase in this thread is also as disgusting... don't broadstroke paint us all the same if we didn't like the movie she was in... these are just trolls who wouldn't need much in general to harass people in general... these are not SW fans as far as I am concerned
Sent you a PM sweetie, probably better than shitting up the forum?
That's a shame. All of the anger should be directed at Rian and no one else.
further proof that Japan is a backwards shithole
These artists doing so is reprehensible and disgusting. But it would be more troubling if the founder of a mayor religion, like say Jesus, came to light did such. If people kept such as a role model in every aspect after such, could be real harmful for society.
I'd say violence is a heavy focus of many video games, especially Western M rated games that are tremendously popular. It is a glorified/cartoonized version of violence, but loli stuff is glorified/cartoonized too. There's no evidence that drawn cp causes an increase in real cp. Based on the fact that video game violence and real life violence has proven to be unrelated, I'd imagine the same is true for cp, but it's impossible to know. I don't like loli stuff, I don't know anyone in real life who does, and I feel very uncomfortable typing this knowing that people here are probably judging me negatively right now. But I honestly believe in what I am saying right now.
I don't want to deviate too much from the context of this thread, but telling an artist what or what they can or can't draw goes against how we defined the concept of art to begin with, doesn't it? Is art something that should be regulated? That's something worth thinking about, but I think it deviates too much from this topic to discuss here, since this is a topic concerning an actual child that was actually victimized so the creator of Ruroni Kenshin could get off. Fuck him.
There's nothing wrong with being uncomfortable with loli stuff, but there is a definite distinction between it and actual child pornography. To make a similar parallel, enjoying violence in media such as video games or action movies does not necessarily mean that you wish to harm people in real life.
It's hard for us to understand the amount of restraint and self control necessary to keep one from indulging one's own perversions. Can you honestly say that if you were a pedophile (remember, it's not a choice) you would manage to go your entire life without ever even attempting to watch anything? It's a fairly obvious assumption that it is no easy task, surely. It's the only reason I actually understand the somewhat lenient laws regarding possession of CP. Distribution makes it much much worse, but possession by itself is somewhat understandable, even though it is highly reprehensible. It's a difficult subject to tackle... Read above. Not saying anyone should get a pass, but let's maybe cool our engines, this isn't as black and white as you're making it out to be, unfortunately.
Saw this coming. This is a country where large teams of men are creating and drawing content starring underage girls in bikinis and underwear that are getting into adult situations. It is being bought, idolized, and lusted over by millions of Japanese men. Instead of going on actual dates and developing healthy social lives. It's creating a creepy pedo culture that's probably far more widespread than any of the harassment crap going on here in America right now. Stop idolizing anyone.
The country that creates Hentai?! You don't say...
His movies during the 1980s were quite progressive. In "Hanah and Her Sisters" all major roles are played by women. It's really sad how the right wing media and tabloids have manipulated people. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that he's Jewish.
It was more that her character was in a about a third of the movie and accomplished nothing and wasted everybody's time. The whole Rose-&-Finn-go-to-casino-world-to-get-the-code-breaker-but-instead-save-the-horse-doggies shit was the biggest sin in a litany of awful choices in that movie. If you cut that whole side story out of the movie what would you lose? Would the movie be better? Arguably yes. Her character is no Jar Jar Binks but she doesn't add anything to the story. Unlike her sister who was great. It's ridiculous that people are attacking her personally but that's what you sign up for with star wars. If anyone is to blame it should be Rian Johnson. Seriously that guy shouldn't have been paid.
There's really NOTHING that could justify this kind of behaviour, but as for "hating" the character I think the only thing I can think of (I'm not going to touch these people's "opinions" with a ten foot pole) is one particularly egregious bit of bad writing her character is victim of at the end of the movie. And even that is just "WTF just happened and how did that make sense?" innocent thing, not an "OMG SW is now ruined woe is me" thing. Before that, her character barely gets anything to do and is generally charming all around. Honestly racism and simply mob mentality targeting the newest, "weaker" entry in the cast are the most likely explanations. A part of the people who didn't like TLJ have been absolutely toxic about it and it's not beyond them running a hate campaign against an actress just to keep throwing vitriol at the movie.
This approaching GamerGate levels of toxicity (or maybe it was always like that.) Can we just take Star Wars fans out back and shoot them in the head. Just put em down. There, done.
