Not-Good Things People Say on the Internet
« on: December 29, 2015, 07:44:34 pm »
I thought I'd go ahead and restart the Things People Say thread (with a slightly more accurate name, although I'll change it back into the old one if that bugs people), since apparently it died?

Quote from: tumblr user mr-cappadocia
Because the original statement wasn’t even just “should” have gay characters.. but WELL WRITTEN.

And that’s well written… according to who again?

See how that handful of soil isn’t just a handful anymore? Now… now there’s expectations… and there’s “well written”… and what’s next? What other “reasonable demand” is going to be made to suit “social expectations”?

(some other shit)

But see… if you think writers need to be “taught to write respectfully-written characters” then you’re the fucking enemy and I don’t think there’s much of any way to reach you.

I learned something today. I learned that it is morally abhorrent to say that mainstream fiction could stand to improve in the field of non-heterosexual representation, and that asking for well-written non-hetero characters is unreasonable.

The original drawing and descriptions are really old, but legit; it's how forensic techs and anthropologists begin to identify bodies. Male and female skull morphology differs, too.

And, note how much BIGGER the "Negroidoid" brain case is? Funny, the racist twit who wrote the diss lacked the cranial capacity to see that.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

Negroidoid.  ;D

I remember learning about the formal names for the different groups in school back in the 80's.  The teacher started listing them and the guy sitting beside me pipes up with "I'm a Chinkazoid."  ;D As you can imagine, that joke stuck around for a while... like years.

...That better be the name of a cheap blacksploitation SciFi film.

I don't really get what "blaxploitation" means as a genre. I tried to look it up and apparently it's a subgenre of "exploitation films"... but "exploitation films" is so broad that I'm even more confused.

I think the basic premise of a blaxploitation movie is that the character is black to make them appear cool.  Bonus points for having them use the term "jive suckah."

Yay something I know a good deal of info about! So blaxploitation a sub-genera of exploitation films is basically a weird invention of the 70's It was based off the rather prevalent crime subculture that existed in Black culture and often had themes of a lone person going against "the man" or more specifically either corrupt and racist cops (something that black people had to and still deal with.)  Or some other person in a position of power, it also involved creation of black version of classic films such as Blacula and Blackenstein being the most famous examples.  It sort of died down by the mid 80's but it had a rather large impact on black culture even in modern times.

Blaxplotation also gave us Dolomite which is just...weird. So yeah that's all I know and remember from looking stuff up about the sub genera

Because it makes perfect sense that Chris Farley would fake his own death so he could take part in a false flag fifteen years later.

I have been vocally ranting at my computer screen for 15+ minutes because this shit is just so bad. (Very long, read only if you didn't feel like being happy today)

(click to show/hide)

What's worst about this is that some of it actually touch upon issues that men face. It's just that that, along with the rest of it, is coated in puerile MGTOW garbage.

Yeah, those were the classics that started the genre.


...Then it was followed by a bunch of really cheap and bad films. Which was not the intention.
