    [–] All contestants are judged too harshly by the public cocooned-caterpillar 3 points ago in LoveIslandTV

    Yeah I understand what you’re saying. I think my thoughts were more general and not specific to Reddit, in that so many of the contestants get so much hate mail and horrible messages on social media attacking them, which is what I think is totally uncalled for and unfair.

    Yeah I can see how it may be hard to toe the line between discussion and nastiness. I guess I’m just frustrated with some of the comments I’ve seen, and wish people would realise that what we see really isn’t the whole story

    Exactly! I feel like there should be a constant PSA reminding people of the situation. Like I appreciate Love Island for its entertainment value, and I do get invested in certain relationships BUT I make it a point to constantly remind myself that I don’t know the reality of the situation

    Well it raised enough attention to finally be picked up by western media

    [–] Racial Profiling really isn't that bad cocooned-caterpillar 1 points ago in unpopularopinion

    It probably would, but the biggest thing would be to have the knowledge but also have the ability to not react based on the knowledge but react on the situation.

    I believe knowledge is always helpful, but stereotypes are tricky. Not everyone fits the bill, and things change very fast, and because this change very fast but people are slow at changing they’re unlikely to update their stereotypes knowledge.

    For me, stereotypes are really interesting, but only because I’m quite curious as to what possible reasons there are for a whole part of a certain population to display a characteristic.

    I think stereotypes are stigmatised now, because they were treated like some sort of rule book on which people based their reactions. A female driver in an accident? Must be her fault - that kinda thing, without actually taking the time to assess the situation and react according to the facts and not be clouded the stereotype.

    It could make sense, but would only be okay to do if everyone had the ability to acknowledge the knowledge exists, but not let it affect their perspective on the situation. Unfortunately, the whole population hasn’t reached that point so right now these stats would do more harm than good

    Every situation I can think of can be modified. You don’t have to walk up stairs together to be a good parent do you? They can still go up together, just using different methods. And the same goes for everything else.

    Also, I’m not sure about you, but I didn’t do everything with my parents. I can’t think of a single thing that a wheelchair user wouldn’t be able to do with their child.

    Im not sure. There’s a comment below by a mother who was a wheelchair user when her baby was born/young (im not sure which one), and from what she said they weren’t there (or maybe weren’t accessible?)
