    [–] Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Official Trailer 2 Penguin_Cafe 20 points ago in movies

    Getting that sweet, sweet Department of Defense funding by showing the US military doing something and being heroic and shit. Same reason they had the main character be a soldier in the first one.

    I don't know what focus group they were using, but not one of the comment I've seen on social media has liked this design. What's more the trailer they showed at Brazilian comic Con that revealed Sonic in all his glory was so upsetting that the audience became "agitated" lol

    Every fan club hates the thing their supposedly fans of more than anything else.

    [–] "Sonic the Hedgehog" Motion Poster Penguin_Cafe 2 points ago in movies

    It looks ok, but knowing this hell timeline he's probably going to have grotesque bulging eyeballs like a real hedgehog. I want to believe they'll make the face work, but deep down I know they won't

    Ok you're wrong, go see a therapist man

    [–] It be like that Penguin_Cafe 2 points ago in IncelTears

    Man why don't you go see a therapist or something if you claim your bullying was so bad that it gave you PTSD. This self hating thing is not doing wonders for your psyche I can tell you that much. One thing I like to remember is that the kids who bullied me.were literal children at the time, so no matter how horrible they were I'm almost positive they didn't really understand what they were doing..There were plenty of *stay away from creepy Penguin games when I was little too. In middle.achool they even made an"I hate Penguin" club on Facebook that had over 8,000 members, including some of my own cousins lmao.

    As terrible as those things were I know they were just the whims of dumbass kids, probably most of the kids who perpetuated that didn't even dislike me. Just the cycle of wanting to fit in. Despite all that I know I will never face the same treatment from adults, and so far I never have. The point I'm trying to make to you is that when you post your self hate online or talk about it in public, if legitimizes a stigma that short men hate the fact that their short, and will therefore be over emotional and vindictive in order to make up for their perceived lack of manhood.

    I'm not accusing you of doing that per se, but when you post this stuff that's a stereotype that performs. In the past few years I've had to start proving to other adults that I'm not an incel type because of my height, and I can't even joke about the funny things that happen when you're a short dude wkthoit people thinking I have a pile of insecurities. What's worse is that you legitimize that kind of self hate in younger men, some who might start to blame their problems on the same thing you blame your problems on, their shortness. You may not be an incel, but you very well might be encouraging their creation when you post shit like that in public forums.

    Bro we aren't mocking anyone for their lack of sex, we are making fun of you because you're a misogynistic dipshit who blames women and "genetics" for their lack of sex. Sex isn't everything and the fact that you guys act like oppressed minorities because you don't know how to talk to people deserves all the ridicule it can get. Plenty of men and women don't have sex for various reasons, but very few of them turn into incels. Thus we don't make fun of them, not having sex all the time is pretty normal and common for people outside of relationships tbh.

    Btw, your Nazi argument is hilarious. If someone comes up to me and says, "I wish we could handle all the Soros kikes flooding our countries with rapefugees" to me (a Jew), am I supposed to sit there and have a conversation about the validity of their beliefs? Fuck no I'll call them a fascist/racist fuck, and if that makes them a full fledged Nazi than they are finally just admitting to what they were all along lmao

    Tf you live where people still care if you're gay or not?

    [–] It be like that Penguin_Cafe 16 points ago in IncelTears

    I'm short and I got shit on a ton when I was a kid too, but you know what? I don't let what children thought of me shape my adult personality, nor do I bitch about the fact I'm short all the time. I know I'm short and anyone with two got damn eyes can see it. Does that make me less than other men, does that make me less of an adult? Fuck no, I carry myself with some fucking dignity and I never blame my woes on being short. Whether it's gf trouble, mental issues, or problems with my life, I never once have felt my shortness was the cause.

    You know who are the only people who have made me self conscious about being short as an adult? Not women. Not tall dudes. No, fucking short freaks who call themselves manlets and will write 10 page papers about how being short makes you less than a person. Honestly the only reason people look down on short men is because of dumbasses who self hate like you, nobody has a reason to hate us until you make up a list and spread it through loud and pathetic self deprication.

    So do yourself and me a favor and act like a fucking person and stop letting your fucking stature define you, and stop telling the world that's how you (and by extension, me) should be judged. You're a normal fucking dude, not the first ugly short dude, and not the last. In fact you wouldnt even fucking exist if some ugly short dudes hadnt smashed some mad pussy in the past.

    From one short dude to another, just live your life bro.

    [–] OP leads the charge on the beaches of r/battlefield against Battlefield V, gets heavily upvoted. r/gamingcirclejerk discovers that OP is a pedophile Penguin_Cafe 5 points ago in SubredditDrama

    As much as I hate agreeing, I think you're right. Jerking it to drawn stuff, as degenerate as it may be, does not equate doing the real deal pedophile/child porn shit. In fact that goes for all fucked up drawn porn, sure a lot of it would be illegal irl, but I feel drawn stuff let's people live out dark fantasies that they really don't have intentions of living out irl. I'm sure pedophiles jerk it to loli just as much as non-pedos, but I would personally rather have them do that than abuse real kids.

    Although this guy in the post is clearly a real pedophile arguing that fucking kids is ok, so there is a very thin line to this shit that this user crossed 100%. You're right about the venn diagram visual too, just because there can be a difference, doesn't mean there really is most of the time.

    Reddit: The key to self actualization is to find your own path in the world without forcing an identity intrinsically tired to corporate and popular culture trends pushed on you by the mindless mainstream.

    Also Reddit: DAE think Ready Player One is the greatest book of all time? I hope I can live in that world one day.

    [–] 2meirl4meirl Penguin_Cafe 6 points ago in 2meirl4meirl

    You'll be fine, just need to find some purpose I think. One thing nobody really talks about is how terrifying and shitty it is to go through your teens and early 20s. Most of the time you have no idea what you are doing, no identity, and unless you're a prodigy or super smart, no skills really. What's more, you have to watch lucky and rich people your age reap the benefits of their wealth and luck. It can be pretty disheartening to see your best friend get into a committed and loving relationship, your classmate go on global backpacking trips every summer, and your other friend get that dream internship that will surely put them on the path to success.

    I don't mean to be crude, but it's real-time buckbrains a lot of the time.

    Don't worry though, because even if none of those awesome things happen to you, that doesn't mean you're at a disadvantage at all. In fact, I would say about a good 90% of people your age won't have any of that dope stuff I mentioned above either. The real world is one where you'll have to trudge along, focus your skills, and find your meaning day by day. In college, figure out what your top basic skills are, and you can whittle down what you like and dislike the best as time goes on. Even if you're nobody of particular interest, their are so many clubs, youth groups, student societies, study groups, etc. to join that you'll surely find something interesting to do if you want to. Eventually that could lead to connections, a girlfriend, or even a good job.

    Once you get out of college you'll sink again when you realize that you're not just going to be handed a well-paying and respected job. Indeed, you'll have to work shit to pay the bills unless you're a top STEM student, from Ivy Leagues, or lucky. Doesn't have to be useless shit though, continue to focus your skills where they're appropriate and work your way up. I myself went to Japan after school to work as an English teacher, and after working semi-shitty and pointless jobs for the past year and a half, I'm going back out with Peace Corps and then pursuing a career in international NGO work after that. When I was in High School I thought I'd be a psychologist LMAO, teenagers don't know what they want. All you know is what society pressures you into wanting, which isn't always right.

    Keep your head up, keep trying, and keep having hope that you're worth something. You just haven't really figured out what that is yet.

    Do you ever stick with anything, or do you just give up when you fail? As a 24 year old, there's lots of shit I wish I had stuck with as a teen I thought I wasnt good at. I just gave up. Now I'm trying to make up, and youre never to old to do what you want!

    IDK Stephen Hawking couldn't even move and he is one of history's greatest minds. I would say as long as you still have your mind you can succeed in your intellectual pursuits. Just plunge yourself into your studies, the more you think you are unable to do it, the more unable you will become tbh

    It sounds like your one step away from declaring we should be using forhead measurements to tell if someone is a negro or not. Did you seriously just describe all Asians as a uniculture, and then go on to say all blacks love crime? Jesus

    [–] 'This is an illegal hoax': Trump calls for end to Mueller investigation after Cohen pleads guilty Penguin_Cafe -1 points ago in worldnews

    Well they are morons, literally being played for fools by a fool. I don't know why we should treat them like special friends who just don't know what they are doing. They are grown ass, voting age adults, and if they can't see why they're being ridiculed for their shitty decisions I don't know how that falls on anyone but them.

    Btw there are plenty of working class liberals and independents as well. Stop conflating conservative=working class, most working class people are quite intelligent and it's insulting that you'd wrap the two together.

    Yes but he was actively seeking out this deal while he was campaigning to become US president, and offering Putin a 50 million dollar apartment? It's not like he did this in the 80s, he lied to the voters and he lied to his base. They must feel like fools for trusting him
