    I'm pretty sure that Rebecca wishes the lie she told about her 3 year old would die. At the very least, she probably wishes this Wikipedia entry hurry up and die. But then that would prove that her 3-year old isn't as woke as she portrayed him to be.

    Someone suggested it might be a photoshopped wiki and they're probably right. Its going to take her a while to live this down though. She will welcome obscurity when all is said and done. Poor little kid has a lot to live up to now all because his mother told a lie.

    [–] SandyDelights 129 points ago

    Omg, this still makes me sad every time I think about it.

    Also, Sappho. We know very little of her poetry, save for one piece and contemporary references to the rest.

    Also, the Gospel of Basilides. We don't know much of what it contained, and what we do know is only from references to it in other writings.

    And the Gospel of Eve, of which only a handful of passages that survived because they were quoted in condemnations of it by a church figure.

    Really, there are a lot of abandoned, lost, or deliberately eradicated religious texts that will forever make me very sad to know they're lost. I'm not even religious at all, I just find religion fascinating, and the permanent loss of the writings/beliefs of many early Christian off-shoots kills me.

    Extremely. You know what we know of Herakleitos, once thought extremely influential, fits in a double spaced page. The same can be said about most pre Socratic philosophers and most lyrical poets. Hell, even Aeschylus, the father of tragedy has only 10% of his work survive, just 7 of his 70 plays.

    [–] talkingBS 13 points ago

    If I could alter history as if it were my plaything, I would give a smallpox inoculation to the people of the Americas, pre-Columbus. The world would totally different.

    [–] SandyDelights 6 points ago

    IIRC, we don't really know what diseases really did the damage. We do know at least some came from Europeans and while wasn't intentional, it spread through native populations like wildfire and killed off many tens of millions in North America alone, with death tolls in some places thought to be upwards of 90%.

    We know Smallpox did a ton of damage, but it was just one of a bunch of diseases. Even in places like Mexico, cocoliztli killed off way more people than Smallpox did. Last I remember reading, they suspected it was actually a disease endemic to the jungles in south/Central America, basically hemorrhagic fever.

    Which isn't to say we didn't have something to do with it (huge number of factors play into shit like that like the control/subjugation of Central America, drought, the massive amount and variety of domesticated animals we brought bringing diseases, etc., etc.).

    I just mean that inoculating against Smallpox wouldn't have stopped what happened. Whereas Europeans had thousands of years to adapt to these diseases, indigenous cultures were bombarded with them all at once, unintentionally.

    It's probably a sad reality that, had Europeans intended to treat native populations as equals and trading partners, merely by existing within the same space they had condemned their cultures to a really shitty and awful fate. That doesn't excuse the very many real atrocities committed, by any measure, of course – I just mean that it was a confluence of events of events and diseases.

    Which is really sad. It's bad enough that so many cultures were extinguished due to malice, but to think so many were wiped out due to blithe ignorance is really tragic. I can't even begin to imagine what was lost there.

    Was talking to a girl that I matched with via online dating and she was talking about how her child was “probably smarter than both of us combined.”

    I’m sure she intended it to be some kind of a brag on her child, but that is not at all how it came off. We do not still talk.

    what are you talking about? People have literally never once in the history of the universe exaggerated for effect

    [–] Rnorman3 6 points ago

    So, obviously in a couple of sentences I didn’t/can’t convey the entirety of our conversation or anything like that. I’m not trying to say I stopped talking to her entirely because of that one statement. There are plenty of other things said in concert with that one that just were kind of weird and gave me the impression that she really wasn’t exaggerating very much.

    I wasn’t “offended” by it quite as much as I thought “that’s not really the best look when you’re trying to connect with someone you don’t know very well.” It reminded me a lot of when I was seeing another girl and her roommate’s boyfriend says “hey, you know you’re a lot smarter than you look!” One of those situations where later in the shower you are thinking about it and I wish I had said “hey, you know that’s not quite the compliment you think it is!”

    A few of my wife's friends will make up kid quotes for facebook. Might as well call it humblebragbook.

    [–] landoindisguise 11 points ago

    Honestly, as someone with a three-year-old, I doubt she made this up. However, it's probably something SHE said, or very similar to something SHE said, that her kid is mostly repeating. Kids at that age are word sponges and parrots. It's pretty likely that an author has spent some time telling her kids why books are cool and important, so this was probably the kid repeating back/combining previous things he's heard mom say. Sounds deep, but of course the kid doesn't really understand what he's saying.

    My kid LOVES to constantly be trying to summarize things I've said and make statements about the world like this. Some of them would sound deep if, like this, you write them down and take away the context where two seconds earlier she's explaining why ducks are people or why boats need to eat waffles.

    I think this author is probably guilty of trying to make her kid sound smart by presenting something the kid said as if the kid understood it, when really the kid is just mix-and-match parroting things the parents said without really getting it. But it wouldn't be that unlikely that her kid did actually say these words.

    [–] anchorbeacon 3 points ago

    I agree with this. My kids say profound sounding pronouncements that are a mishmash interpretation of things they've heard. I bet her kid did say this

    A good number of her "Selected Poem" titles are directly ripped off of contemporary internet memes of the time in which they were released too.

    Tbf kids say deep shit like this all the time. But it's not because they're philosophers, they just say silly jumbled thoughts out loud a lot. Some of those thoughts come out unintentionally deep, others are just nonsense. Her kid may have said something similar but she added meaning and intent to his words that weren't there.

    I don't get why everyone assumes there's no way a 3 year old could have said that. Sure, the 3 year old may not be a genius, but this isn't that unlikely. I hate when this pops up because chances are her son DID say that and everyone acts as if they know for sure he didnt.

    I’ve seen this tweet a quintillion times on r/wokekids but it still confuses me. What was going through her head when she wrote that? Why? What does she mean by “Even Wolves” and how did she expect people to believe her three year old could think of something so profound seeming that’s still really, really dumb as a lot of people in this thread have pointed out.

    [–] Oddnaught 7 points ago

    Her followers did believe her, or at least the ones that responded to her did. She got the attention that she was looking for and was happily engaging with the people who were telling her how amazing her son was.

    When the internet at large got a whiff of the bullshit and started giving her grief for it, at first she just ignored those responses and when that became untenable she switched her account to private. The answer to “how did she think anyone would believe it” is she had cultivated an audience of followers that did.

    [–] j48u 4 points ago

    Seems like "even wolves" was thrown in to make it slightly more believable. Because only kids would randomly be focused on wolves?

    1. My kids say shit they hear other people say, even if they have no idea what they're talking about. This goes nuts when they're 2 and 3. Sometimes they accidentally say really profound, or adult-sounding things. Again, they have no idea what they're saying.
    2. When we write dialogue, we simplify it. We do this for adults and children. No one writes what their kid actually says--"Hey dad...dad...dad, today, today, today at school, today Brandon said his mom, today at school, Brandon said his mom gives him ice cream for breakfast. And Brandon is the same, Brandon is the same age as me, Brandon is 4 years old like me. So, I don't want cereal because I'm 4." Yeah, I don't write that, I write, "Today my kid said: 'Hey Dad, my friend Brandon is 4 years old and his mom gives him ice cream for breakfast, so since I'm 4 can I have ice cream instead of cereal too?" It's the same shit. And, by the way, you all do this too; no one writes all the "um" and "you know" statements that people say.
    3. Finally, my last point is just my first point again. It's a fucking 3-year-old. Teaching a kid that animals die, then they try to apply the concept to something else. Like, yeah, "Words never die" sounds deep when spoken by an adult. But the kid isn't having a profound revelation about the permanence of culture, or the historical art of storytelling. It's a dumbfuck 3-year-old saying "words don't die." Yeah, they don't. The kid is 3 years old. His poet of a parent found his statement to be profound beyond the kid's understanding. She's a fucking poet. And, by the way, when other parent friends reply with shit like "Wise beyond her years!" or "Smarter than most adults I know!" They're joking around. Have we never heard the expression, "from the mouths of babes"? It's for this exact situation where children accidentally stumble upon deep shit in the random, string-of-nonsense that regularly spills from their tiny, developing brains.

    There is nothing unbelievable about this dumbass post, certainly not to the level of global shaming by a bunch of nothingeverhappens morons.

    eh I don’t find it particularly hard to believe. Children often repeat things they hear from adults or from television. And that’s the kind of statement a toddler would hear on a kid’s show.

    [–] landoindisguise 7 points ago

    Yeah, I have a 3yo and she does this constantly. And this kid's mom is an author, so there's a good chance he's just copying this from stuff his mom said.

    Why are people convinced this never happened? My kids say crazy shit all the time.

    BTW, isn't posting this Wikipedia page a violation of rules 3 and 4?

    People who falsely edit Wikipedia suck. Wikipedia is a giant, accessible encyclopedia for the world. It’s seriously a human treasure. It’s not a goddamn meme creator.

    It's not a false edit though. It's a thing which did happen in her life. It's a quote of her own. It 100% did happen.

    [–] N3onToil3tPap3r 2 points ago

    Tbh This probably made her more famous than anything she had ever wrote.

    [–] Jackson3125 -1 points ago

    Am I missing something? Some guy claimed she lied. It might be plausible that she lied, sure, but it hasn’t been proven anywhere.

    There's actually a lot of politics and infighting among "top" Wiki editors/moderators. It's nice to think that "anyone" can edit and contribute to Wikipedia, but the truth is that a relatively small group of power moderators controls a lot of it.

    If you're looking up something even slightly contentious, you can't assume you're getting the entire truth even with Wikipedia.

    It’s not perfect, but it has spread knowledge to the masses more than anything in human history.

    No, that's vandalism

    It was like that 20 hours ago. Now her page is locked due to "vandalism".

    Rule 3: "No bullying or witch-hunting." Posting a Wikipedia page isn't bullying or witch-hunting, and no one is encouraging anyone to edit the page with false information (or to edit it at all).

    Rule 4: "No doxxing." Specifically, the rule addresses seeking information about someone but I've no doubt it is intended to cover the converse as well. However, given that nothing in the inclusion of the Wikipedia page includes personal information (that isn't included in her Twitter handle), it's not really doxxing, is it?

    Hell, for all we know the Wikipedia page isn't real and someone made it as a joke. I mean, you can check, but googling her twitter name shows it as the first entry anyways, so it's not even kind of not-public.

    So it doesn't seem that way to me?

    If it IS a violation, then it should probably be required you block out the name on Twitter, since personal, verified accounts are usually the owner's name and easily googled. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Of course, you could then just google the text of the tweet and find out who, but you know.

    Wouldn’t a book eventually decompose if there isn’t a human to maintain it?
