I think i remember devtesla posting shibe like images on /r/srsfunny a long ass time ago. The dogs weren't shibas, but they had comic sans words on them. He got them from somethingawful, and I think they just started. This was well before I heard the word "shibe."

So he was at the forefront of the meme the whole time.

Just that i think that's what makes the difference, it adds a little bit more to the moral wrong on one side

Well yeah, they're on equal planes in the perspective of animal welfare. In another perspective, the action of killing an animal sadistically is more fucked up, and I consider that a tie breaker.

While y'all are arguing that killing a chicken is bad, none of you have convinced me that killing the lion is good, or at least better.

We're talking lesser of two evils here, you don't have condone one of the two in order to think one is worse.

There is a reason to kill the chicken. Even if it's a bad reason, it is a reason Killing a lion is just for fun. It's sadistic. You don't go on a power trip when you eat a chicken. If you eat a chicken, just about all that means is that you aren't a vegetarian or vegan, and you want to eat.

Taylor Swift Is Not Your Friend by nekuin fempire

[–]blueduch 9 points10 points ago

This comment is good:

Because people like women more when they’re damsels in distress. Sweet, innocent and in need of protection. The minute a woman shows serious strength, ambition, a competitive spirit, and basically any quality that is associated mostly with men, people will immediately call her problematic. She’s “ruthless.” She’s a “capitalist”! She wants to make MORE MONEY. Why the hell not? I would’ve loved Britney Spears to have been more well rounded, more in control and more stable so she could have become the biggest popstar yet, instead of watching her struggle with mental illness and addiction, and basically lose what made her special. This is what has kept Madonna going for 30 years.

Yeah, Taylor is still mentally in high school, and she loooooves parading her famous friends and her cool table. But she’s 100% focused and driven, and those business instincts should be admired. The minute Taylor showed more ambition than a girl is allowed go have is when people turned their backs on her. Even so called “feminists.” I don’t see what she does any different than whay Jay Z has done.

Especially that last line. Now I'm not defending capitalism, but since when have artists been criticized for being capitalistic? Aside from maybe groups like the fempire, people don't usually object to that. Which is why I think it is odd that this is such a hardhitting and shocking criticism of Taylor Swift, since almost any other popular artist could be criticized for that. The article makes it seem like she is a unique extreme in this aspect, and I don't think she is. It might be surprising to people who fell for her aura of being just a normal everyday girl, but I for one am not surprised that she isn't.

Maybe if more people were willing to help some people, nobody would have to singlehandedly "help everyone."

reddit is deddit by blueduchin just_post

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

to be fair the latest stuff is pretty damning. banning fatpeoplehate was great, and the butthurt redditors were hilarious. but now the new thing is that she's apparently making reddit more corporate, firing admins, and taking steps to monetize reddit more. I want to like her just to spite the circlejerk, but it's kinda hard. I still think reddit is overreacting about this tho.

I just realized how silly a name for a color "flesh" is because even ignoring the race thing, skin tones vary so much, even among white people, that it's just a very nonspecific name for a color

My dilemma is that i know how to use whom and often naturally want to use it but i often purposefully use wrong grammar to sound more like a human and not a dick
