    [–] Teen sentenced to 4 years planning mass shooting at high school in Columbus, Ohio TwerpOco 0 points ago in news

    I think part of it may be backlash to the racism of people ignoring their problems because "white people are privileged." Racism spawns more racism who would have thought.

    [–] Thirteen Russians criminally charged for interfering in US election, Mueller announces TwerpOco 1 points ago in news

    And I've been disagreeing with you. That's not what the Russians want. They want to put their guys (Trump and the right-wing) in a position of power over the left-wing. Yes it's dividing us, but it's more complex than simply pitting side against side. They didn't play both sides against each other, they put down Hillary and the left, and elevated Trump and the right.

    But you've never said why you disagreed with me until now. Originally my argument was not to witch hunt anyone you disagreed with by labeling them as Russians. You "disagreed" with me because you thought I was telling people to ignore the scandal, which I was not. If you think there's more to their plan, then that's a different topic entirely. You aren't disagreeing with me on my point, you're just derailing.

    Have you seen any Trump supporters who have admitted that Russian meddling was a catastrophic threat to US democracy, and probably resulted in aiding Trump in the election? Because I haven't, so if you have, please link me.

    Why the hell would I waste my time looking for that? First of all, Reddit is overwhelmingly against Trump. Also, it doesn't really have anything to do with my point. Just because they may support someone that you dislike doesn't mean all of their criticisms are invalid.

    For someone who seems to be against ad-hominem attacks, that doesn't seem to be the best way to dismiss an argument.

    I called your argument a child's argument because it's extremely near-sighted and arrogant. The "LALALA You're wrong I'm right" gag is something a child would pull. It is an attempt to discredit the other person and shut down the discussion without adding anything of value, which I would argue fuels further divide.

    If you disagree that Russian meddling was important and threatens US democracy (which the OP on this comment chain did suggest), then I'm sorry, but you are wrong and your criticism is invalid.

    Wasn't referring to you, I was using "you" as the "generic you" with a nod to the OP which I noted in my parentheses. Seems that your reading comprehension could in fact use some work.

    It could have easily been directed at whomever you replied to (in this case me). In any case, the "I disagree so you're wrong lalalala" is still a child's argument.

    I never defended an ad hominem argument so I don't see how that's relevant here. I did however disagree with your interpretation of what the Russians wanted, and suggested there's nothing wrong with calling out people defending or downplay Russian meddling for what they are - un-American.

    This whole time I've been saying that calling someone a Russian to discredit their views (ad hominem attack by the way) simply because you disagree with them is exactly what the Russians want. To get us to stop having rational discussions, form echo chambers where dissenting opinions are banned, and to divide us further. You don't think the Russians want to divide us? Because that's what I think they want.

    If you disagree that Russian meddling was important and threatens US democracy (which the OP on this comment chain did suggest), then I'm sorry, but you are wrong and your criticism is invalid.

    Firstly, I never said that this issue isn't important. Your reading comprehension needs some work. Secondly, this is exactly the kind of divisiveness I was talking about.

    "I disagree with you so you're point is moot" is a child's argument. Grow up.

    The person I originally replied to was accusing someone of being a Russian bot just because they disagreed with them. Falling back on ad hominem attacks to discredit someone is exactly how you destroy discourse and create echo chambers which is exactly what Russia needs to divide us further.

    Did you even read what I said? I didn't tell you to ignore it. I'm not sure what you're disagreeing with me on here.

    [–] Thirteen Russians criminally charged for interfering in US election, Mueller announces TwerpOco 1 points ago in news

    I didn't tell anyone to ignore it. Just don't go witch hunting, it solves nothing and only makes it worse.

    You can't see the forest through the trees, my friend. Pointing fingers and pushing blame around to anyone who disagrees (from any angle) is playing directly into Russia's hand. Shutting down democracy is a simple game of instilling paranoia and distrust of your fellow man.

    The irony is that by calling him/her a Russian loyalist to dismiss their criticism, you're doing exactly what the Russians wanted. You are the proof that we have been divided.

    [–] Thirteen Russians criminally charged for interfering in US election, Mueller announces TwerpOco 1 points ago in news

    Unfair lmao. Nothing is ever fair and nothing is ever your fault. There was plenty of hate from every side, don't be so hypocritical. The death of introspection is the death of democracy.

    [–] Thirteen Russians criminally charged for interfering in US election, Mueller announces TwerpOco 4 points ago in news

    Yeah there definitely was sexism, people were pressured into voting for Hillary simply because she was a woman. If you were a woman who wasn't voting for Hillary you were betraying your kind.

    Everyone who didn't vote for Hillary was just a misogynist. /s

    I'm looking forward to it! It's been a few years since I played your first game, but I can still remember so many of the fantastic puzzles.

    [–] As being gay is becoming more accepted in society, what is something you’re still waiting for to be accepted? TwerpOco 1 points ago in AskReddit

    That's pretty impressive considering how much work my engineering friends seem to spend studying. I easily spend twice as much as you did per week in CS and they still out-study me.

    [–] What about the opposite gender are you jealous of? TwerpOco 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Any advice from the dudes of Reddit on how to ask him out without feeling cripplingly anxious would be super appreciated.

    I hate to break it to you, but there's no easy way around it. You just gotta do it and understand that life goes on if you get rejected. The anxiety part won't go away in the moments leading up to it or in the moment. That being said, it helps if you two are already acquainted.

    [–] What about the opposite gender are you jealous of? TwerpOco 8 points ago in AskReddit

    Many women drown in the ocean while many men wander the desert when it comes to getting asked out.

    I feel like I will always have doubt of the love in a relationship if I'm constantly having to prove that I'm worthy of their love.

    [–] What about the opposite gender are you jealous of? TwerpOco 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Compliments. I still get high off remembering when someone complimented my T-Shirt a year ago. Far and few I take what I can get.

    [–] What about the opposite gender are you jealous of? TwerpOco 5 points ago in AskReddit

    Feel free to shop in the women's section for more variety.

    That's the thing. It's pretty much socially acceptable for women to shop in the men's section and wear men's clothes. Nobody is really going to know the difference. The inverse is not true.

    [–] Consistency, thy name is Buzzfeed TwerpOco 16 points ago in TumblrInAction

    That was fake in the efforts to show how much of a double standard it was.

    [–] What free software is so good you can't believe it's available for free? TwerpOco 7 points ago in AskReddit

    I've honestly worn out those three buttons greatly since I found this shortcut. It's sooooo useful, especially paired with Discord shitposting.

    No not really.

    [–] Official Discussion: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri [SPOILERS] TwerpOco 2 points ago in movies

    "Hurr durr life is messy fuck Hollywood expectations" isn't an excuse for lazy writing. The emperor has no clothes.

    [–] Official Discussion: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri [SPOILERS] TwerpOco 1 points ago in movies

    For me the "I hope you get raped" line was something only a man could have written.

    As if men can't be raped? Or that men can't have empathy for others who are raped? It was just bad dialogue shoehorned in to make the audience understand that Mildred has reason to feel guilty for the argument.
