    [–] "Those Were the Days," Aliya Chen, Digital, 2016 illusorycrab -1 points ago in Art

    If this were painted by a white person, people would be criticizing it as white nationalist.

    Same goes for all those top comments about people mourning the nostalgia of the scene, talking with sadness about how it shows a "lost time" etc etc.

    [–] The front cover of “The Economist” in 1988 illusorycrab 1 points ago in conspiracy

    This is suspicious as hell. So, do you guys think the Economist is in on this?

    [–] "How can I make this about race and white people?" illusorycrab 1 points ago in TumblrInAction

    "Leftists may claim that their activism is motivated by compassion or by moral principles, and moral principle does play a role for the leftist of the oversocialized type. But compassion and moral principle cannot be the main motives for leftist activism. Hostility is too prominent a component of leftist behavior; so is the drive for power. Moreover, much leftist behavior is not rationally calculated to be of benefit to the people whom the leftists claim to be trying to help. For example, if one believes that affirmative action is good for black people, does it make sense to demand affirmative action in hostile or dogmatic terms? Obviously it would be more productive to take a diplomatic and conciliatory approach that would make at least verbal and symbolic concessions to white people who think that affirmative action discriminates against them. But leftist activists do not take such an approach because it would not satisfy their emotional needs. Helping black people is not their real goal. Instead, race problems serve as an excuse for them to express their own hostility and frustrated need for power. In doing so they actually harm black people, because the activists’ hostile attitude toward the white majority tends to intensify race hatred."

    Of course I know there’s a difference you numbskull, my comment was referring to the kind of idiot who sees them as the same.

    Don’t act like there aren’t plenty of idiots online who believe tomboys would be openly transgender if only it were more widely accepted. I’ve seen enough of them myself.

    They’re miserable people in real life, they just like riling people up online. The ‘lmao’ is functionally identical to a ‘sweetie’ or ‘honey’, it’s intended to piss the other person off by giving the impression they’re laughing and having a great time.

    Yes. I happen to believe that “cis” (awful term btw) people are generally far less confused about their gender and would provide more sensible answers.

    For the hell of it, I’ll answer the question myself. I identify as male because I am male, asin I have a dick and my DNA test says “male” on it. Sometimes I do masculine things, sometimes I do feminine things and my interests are a pretty even mix between the two, possibly even tipped a little toward the feminine. No part of me would ever assert that any of those feminine traits mean I am actually female, because honestly it just feels intrinsically sexist to me to create such distinctions... and I’m literally a redpiller (not even kidding).

    Try asking a genderfluid or trans person what they mean exactly when they say they "feel" one gender or another sometime, the answers they give are hilarious and amount to nothing more than gender stereotypes.

    If a guy has 10 girls on the go, chances are he isn't the type of guy who needs to make much of an effort with them.

    I never actually said that meant OP was right. Try re-reading the first comment I made and all I was actually doing was pointing out how this person grew a whole crazy tree out of a small seed of truth.

    [–] Insane people Reddit? illusorycrab 1 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    Apparently I'm the only one here who does know what I'm doing.

    You all know I'm right. You'd make a real argument against me if you didn't.

    [–] Insane people Reddit? illusorycrab 2 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    When you say "you people", do you mean non-americans who aren't constantly entrenched in a bubble of partisan US political propaganda? Because that's what I am.

    Consider this; Obama did get a lot of criticism from right-leaning press during his terms for the amount of time he spent golfing, just like how every president does. Now, in one of those periods where the right-leaning press were hounding him for golfing, wouldn't it be in both Obama's capacity and self-interest to put out a photo of him doing something different on those days instead?

    [–] Insane people Reddit? illusorycrab -63 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    Why do I have such a strong feeling that if Guardian and WaPo articles were calling Trump orwellian and soviet-style for doing this instead, you'd consider bending the truth to be simply a stylistic choice aimed at communicating the more important subtext; that it's proof of him controlling his public image?

    [–] Insane people Reddit? illusorycrab -105 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    The underlying implication of OP's comment is that Obama worked in partnership with a photographer to self-select media images in order to shape public perception in his favor. Sure pretty much every detail is entirely wrong, but that underlying implication does happen to be true. Obama did keep a very tight grip on media photos.
