Debates don't change minds, experience and empathy do.

As everyone here knows, I hold many strong beliefs. Not a single damn one of them came from an argument. I developed them over the course of my life, either by way of my own experiences or my direct observation of others. This is the natural way of things, and I wouldn't expect anyone else to feel any differently.

For these reasons, I now only engage in sociopolitical debates with close friends - people I have known for years. To anyone else, I'm glad to talk generally about my beliefs, and maybe have a little back-and-forth on a single issue or two, but I draw the line pretty shortly afterwards. Because when you engage in that sort of argument with someone you don't share a foundation with, it can quickly become a pissing contest, no matter how mature or understanding you think you are. I've made a fool out of myself more than once.

saying something is "inspired by miyazaki" means nothing anymore. it's just a buzzword phrase. i wonder if it meant anything to begin with.

i love ghibli films and miyazaki's work, but people have bastardized the phrase in order to get a bigger audience for their tangentially related products. which is understandable based on the way the world is currently structured, but it makes me sad. saying your work is inspired by him is just a hollow turnoff for me now; you're trying to pretend your work is subversive and counter-cultural when it's quite the opposite.

pet peeve with people complaining about companies trying to look woke. like what else do you guys want? companies don't do anything, oh they're anti lgbt. they put up support, oh they're not doing enough and need to donate. they donate, oh theyre not donating enough. they donate even more, oh theyre just doing it to look good.

the fact that companies are able to market and make money with pride stuff is proof that the lgbt community is actually acceptable and being normalized. like there's no way this could have happened 20 years ago. heck 10 years ago everybody said "oh that's gay" as an insult. plus keep in mind a lot of companies that do pride stuff have workers who asked them to participate in the events. like honestly complaining about it just seems like being nitpicky for the sake of being nitpicky vs capitalism.

the memes are still funny tho

imo you still get hatecrimed for being any variety of lgbt. no amount of pride merch is going to solve that problem.

like, it's nice if you have the money to buy it, but a rainbow shirt does nothing for the lgbt folks who can barely afford the cost of being alive. it'd be better if the money going to cooperations were going to individual lgbt people selling pride-themed stuff.

yeah true. if you really want to support people of the lgbt directly who are suffering helping them out directly is probably the best way. however, every charity gets donations because of tax breaks so most of them would rather get money from businesses and super rich people anyways. however, I feel like people also focus way too much on charities and big donation numbers when they can instead be volunteering and helping out the community.

is it also a hot take to say that for profit charities arent that bad? like you need to buy workers too you know?

Using abbreviations and acronyms in discussion platforms that don't enforce overly sensitive character limits is a great way for a person to reveal one's own stupidity and inadequateness to engage in reasonable, clear and coherent discussion.

You should always ask yourself, before using any kind of abbreaviation or acronym, that "will people google this?". If your answer is leaning towards any sort of kind-of-yes-type of situation, do not use that acronym or abbreviation at all and just write the whole damn thing. Your message will be clearer and you are not going to come across like a total tool to other people involved in the discussion.

Yeah it can be hard sometimes, I joined a server with people around my area and they were very nice, I even made a new friend and we went to an arcade together. I had to go through many boring servers to find it but just keep looking, I'm sure you'll find a good server eventually

Hot take time. Tbh tom holland's spiderman isbt that great and is a great example of recency bias. Toby is more like classic, campy, dorky spiderman before gwen stacy died. He's a weird nerd who people can easily see self identify with.

Andrew is more like modern spiderman. He's cool, slick, silly, quipy, hot, and for reason skateboaeds. While the orginal Spiderman showed how anybody can become a superhero. Andrew represents the character in his 2000s. He has experience fighting hundreds of villains, he's no longer a high school dork and dates hot women, and he cracks jokes to mess with people. Andrew only suffered from his movies poor script and plot.

Tom is weird because he's a really unique spiderman. Spiderman never really had a father figure in the comics while tom has like 4.

The most basic early spiderman stories is a coming of age story. Boy gets powers. Abuses them. Uncle dies and says use them for good. Peter learns how to use them for good. And I feel like toms spiderman kinda ignores that. Instead his whole motivation is wanting to become his own superhero. He looks up to people like tony stark and sees them as badase superheros. His end goal is to become his own superhero. While toby's/andrews end goal were to keep their dead uncle's promise by using their power for good. Tom uses his powers for good because that's what superheros do. instead of what a good citizen with powers would do.
He doesn't really help the common man because his movies make him more than the common man. He's a super smart kid with a billionaire daddy figure that goes to a prestigious tech school with ties to a secret government agency. Toby and Andrew were just dudes with dead uncle's. Tom is a trust fund baby.

People say tom is the best peter parker in high school but comic high school peter is kinda a dick. He's a loner nerd who gets picked on and also wants to date the popular hot girl. He didn't become an awkwardly cute dork until toby became spiderman and shows started putting him in high school. I also don't get people.saying toby looked too old when tom is like 25 and playing a 16 year old while toby was playing a senior I think?

Overall. I like tom holland and his spiderman is pretty unique. But saying he's the best spiderman is kinda silly. Toms spiderman is more like miles morales. Kid who gets a powers that similar to another. (Miles gets spiderman's power and Tom gets an iron man suit). Person dies. Miles/tom learn how to be their own unique hero instead of replacing the dead guy.

i felt like people would tend to take what i said way too ****ing seriously but i was actually being honest when i said smash is awful if you arent playing super casually (but even then it aint all that). its littered with absolutely terrible matchups and for a fighting game thats supposed to be about positioning more than traditional combos and health it has absolutely terrible controls and a lack of movement options. For every great idea theres like three terrible ones and that game just has way too much pointless **** while lacking things worth grinding on. The game speed in ult is hardly different from 4, and if ult had an upgraded port with a similar amount of iterations people would realise the problems it has rn similarly to how smash 4 is viewed as more flawed and slow than it used to be. the next smash game should overhaul the movement options and add more **** to dash around and up adn down and more options for returning to the stage instead of the degen repetitive disadvantage state matches are plagued with and it could do with some xrd style missions and actual learning modes too because the current singleplayer doesnt teach anything and all blends together so those modes arent really fun casually either. 4 was a lot more fun for its time, and in retrospect isn’t much worse, it at least had better control and the balance was definitely a lot wackier but honestly more fun in some ways. Im honestly glad smash ult is over because i didnt enjoy the game at all after i got bored of my main although i will really miss my ult board but that was also getting flooded with boring horny posts and a lot of the good users became inactive and had similar sentiments about the board



I think Smash works best as a party game, my favorites are Brawl and Smash 4, if people play it as a 1v1 fighting game it doesn't bother me but I just don't see the appeal in it. Also why do you say Ultimate is over? Lots of games continue to have an active player base without constant balance patches. When was the last time Mario kart 8 deluxe got a balance patch?

Unpopular left Twitter/reddit opinion. The guy who said that sex work is empowering is the craziest dude ever for tricking people that selling nudes or prostitution should be acceptable. Sure the feeling of you using other people by selling your nudes seems empowering is it really? You're just selling your body for people to degrade you from a person to bob's and vagina to touch their pee pees to.

If sex work is empowering me asking a girl "how much for a quick blow" is supportive and not at all misogynistic. There's nothing empowering at all with a job that involves being raped, groomed, or murdered

Just the idea that a person has to sell their body to survive is ridiculous and backwards thinking

I would argue that most work sounds bad when you simplify it like that, for example you could easily boil down a welder's job to 'sticks metal bits together', which obviously ignores the technicality and need of welding on an infrastructural level.

The core problem with sex work is that people are forced into it, the vast majority of sex workers are mothers trying to support their children, shaming women for selling their body ignores the actual issue, which is the increasing cost of living and poverty rate. The entire empowerment movement is based on women not wanting to be shamed for getting by.

^i get not wanting to be shamed and thats bad but under no circumstance should someone sell their body like that in the end it isnt worth it i argue that the movement was corrupted badly into just yay pro sex work though it isnt outwardly being perceived as “i dont want to be shamed” as much as “sex work empowers me” and a lot of woman are portraying it as such which is almost even worse because if you justify you encourage nobody to make change happen for you

I can't stand womens' football (soccer) and won't be overjoyed if England's Women team won the World Cup, I be frusrated for England mens team they never won since 1966. I getting fed up and now Womens' football (soccer) shoved in my face. Nothing against Womens' football (soccer) and womens and girls playing football (soccer). I not loving and enjoying football lately. If you think it's sexist then something wrong with you, what I say it's my opinion.

Being a Genshin Impact fan, believe NPC (Non-Playable character), Jeht is not a lesbian, but a bisexual. Maybe I like her and become of my waifus, believe some people think they so smart and get upset when someone disagree with them and label them like homophobic or troll, which I'm not.
