I can almost guarantee you that it was not about a simple compliment and more about fawning over and playing with a strangers hair, which is totally a thing and comes across as patronizing and an invasion of personal space.
It's not "hey your hair looks great today" and more "omigod i love your hair can i touch it wow its so bouncy hehe"
Maybe his friend DID miss the point, I wouldn't be surprised if her only exposure to the concept of micro aggression was from a freshman training session. But from his attitude, it sounds like he's the one who misunderstood, willfully or otherwise.
Here's an alright article on Miles Morales and a black spiderman. This opinion can also be found here.
Quote from the first article that definitely sums it up;
>"I can proudly look at my favourite comic book superhero," he said, "who is one of the biggest and most popular in comic book history and say 'He looks like me'. Kids today don't have to feel strange in society growing up. They can look at him [Miles] and feel that it's normal to be who they are. It's not weird, wrong or that there's something [wrong] with them, which is why they're not shown in what they love. It's okay to be different."
Of course, this is one man's opinion and I'm sure it's a diverse reaction to whether new characters are created or not but I think it's generally well-received to have someone you already looked up to become a representation of you and your struggles.
Philly mods are good, at least:
>Oh, 270 comments? I'm sure these are all upright and congratulatory.
>I'm locking the thread.
>Desktop users: now would be a good time to install Reddit Enhancement Suite and use the "tag" function so you can identify ~~racists~~ well informed citizens who know the ins-and-outs of the law in other threads.

> I am sorry but this is impossible advice for a normal looking guy.
It's true. Only guys that look like Scott Eastwood are friends with women. Normal looking guys are only friends with other men.
Go to things you're interested in, and don't go with the primary idea of meeting women. Have it be secondary, sure, but go with the idea that you're there to have fun.
Sign up for meetup.com and go to the "social singles" or "friends in X location" thing and talk to people there (men and women). There's usually a 60/40 split of women to men, and as long as you aren't a creep and trying to fuck every woman there you WILL find people who want to be your friend.
I think my favourite part of that thread is all the 8chan regulars circlejerking over how old and dead 4chan is, somehow taken over and butchered by the evil SJW menace (despite the fact that /pol/ is still going on business as usual)
4chan Global Rank = 783 in the world.
8chan Global Rank = 8633 in the world.
Great job guys.
Absolutely. There were people in my drawing and live study classes from all different skill levels w no judgment (unless you acted above it all)- my pal was an absolutely amazing sculptor and literally could not draw a woman for shit. The curriculum usually works from the ground up in terms of learning perspective/ shapes/ theory if it’s not an advanced class, i don’t think a professor would expect you to come in knowing all that.
If you’re interested in landscapes, imo taking a watercolor or oils class is also helpful- the loose wrist motions associated with it lend well to depicting nature. If you’re interested in people taking a sculpture class can also be helpful- understanding the body 3D helps so much with correct poses and proportions in self drafted drawings. Figure drawing design and invention is my favorite book for self teaching and practice also.
>I definitely thought it was curious when literally all the people with BPD I interviewed in med school had some form of childhood trauma.
yeah it's basically a per-requisite for BPD- something like high 40's to mid 70's % of people with BPD report that they were sexually abused as children, and low 20's to high 70's % report they were physically abused.
i personally can't remember my trauma because i am selectively amnesic in response to traumatic / stressful / emotionally painful stuff- like if i get into an argument with my girlfriend or my mom or something, i won't remember it an hour later. childhood and most of school / highschool [which i graduated 3 years ago] basically does not exist in my memory.
i've had people who've 'wondered' about my trauma and how it must be 'fucked up' or 'very horrible' and i cannot tell them- while most of them can either remember what happened to them normally, or through the use of whatever you call psychiatrist assisted hypnosis [there's a word for it that i don't know]
>If you know of any literature on the subject I'd be interested to read it
there's a lot of stuff that is easily googled on the subject but i personally do not have anything specific to BPD on hand. i saw something relating to trauma a few days ago on the subject of specifically CPTSD / PTSD: The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk.
the book apparently talks about the history of trauma diagnosis and misdiagnosis with the regards to the DSM, why people with CPTSD / PTSD / people with trauma behave the way they do or in certain ways, has a lot of case studies, and information on healing for people with trauma.
might read it when i am not on a big OSRS grind
Disagree. Somehow on the internet STEM=computer programming, even though biology, astronomy, and many other academically-oriented, non-tech-related degrees fall under STEM. Regardless of field though, if the program/department you are in doesn't prepare you very well for the job market (professionalism, resume-worthy projects, internships, career fairs, etc), it can be just as difficult to get a job with a STEM degree as a so-called "mickey mouse" degree. I "followed my passion" and got a BA, MS, and PhD in anthropology, and now work at a multi-billion dollar software company figuring out what, why, and how we should build things (in grad school, I also held a qualitative research position within an engineering department). Turns out, understanding people and context are essential to making usable and ethical technology. I also work with people with degrees in English, environmental studies, political science, and yes, art history. The simplistic view of STEM vs liberal arts is unrealistic at best and dangerous at worst. If you want to learn more, I suggest reading this book and the others list in the 'commonly bought together' section.
"Dating simulator". If it's what I remember, it was Yandere Simulator. And, well, let me just quote Kotaku here:
>Yandere Simulator’s protagonist is a high school girl who will do anything to be with her crush, including torturing, blackmailing and murdering her female classmates. Upskirt shots are a game mechanic. There’s some nudity, although genitalia and nipples are covered. You can electrocute enemies in the school bathroom or publicly shame them into suicide. "All characters depicted are 18 or older," a caveat for Yandere Simulator reads against a pink background, "even if otherwise specified." [emphasis added by me]
"They're all 18 *wink, wink*. Now, go get some panties shots and then brutally murder them!"
I don’t think Barney’s toxic masculinity is unironic. That would mean this book is actually offering a code to live by, as opposed to the humor coming from how ridiculous it is.
This episode definitely touched on why toxic masculinity is a bad thing. When you go around getting in fights (in this case taking credit for one they didn’t even participate in) because it’s “manly” bad things happen.
https://raddle.me/ Is a slowly growing reddit alternative. Right now its basically all politics which is good but I hope it picks off so there are spaces to discuss things such as model making, tabletop RPGs, gaming, etc that aren't dominated by the usual alt-lite white dudebro demographic.
I can't help but be tickled that Gaetz was the right-wing toadie to lose his milkshake cherry
I mean there are so many, it's hard to pick just one but he's been vying to be the right-wing's blue-ribbon bootlicker for quite a while.
Sonder is a word, it just doesn't have the deep, all encompassing meaning that the internet likes to think that it does.

gamers on the internet:
"Fuck EA for releasing a new Battlefield game every so often!"
"OMG 4A is re releasing a game they put out a year ago? OMG IT'S SUCH AN UNDERRATED GEM SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!1!!"

Here’s what she was drinking from, could be anything in it
Literal eugenics advocation:
>Some people shouldn't procreate.
>>Some people shouldn't be driving cars but at least there's a test you have to pass before doing that ¯(ツ)/¯
And a whole load of projection:
>kids going to come out all special needs and then she's going to bitch and moan that the kid needs all sorts of help.
>>I've literally sacrificed EVERYTHING for this child.
>>>I can't stop drinking, smoking, or being a piece of shit. My DOCTOR said the stress is bad for the baby!
>>It might roll into anti-vax because she can't see that what she did caused this.
>This lady deserves all the pain and suffering this world can bring down upon her. Selfish bitch.
>I hate her. Never met her, but I'm 100% positive I hate her. That poor child. I think about what it's going to be like when she's a mom. Never taking accountability, the baby comes second all the time. Fuck.
>Kids gonna have learning disabilities and she's gonna blame it on vaccines or some shit
Here's some copypasta for you to give to anyone who tries to put forth this bullshit:
Irish people were never subject to hereditary chattel slavery.
> Indentured servitude was difficult, deadly work, and many indentured servants died before their terms were over. But indentured servitude was temporary, with a beginning and an end. Those who survived their terms received their freedom. Servants could even petition for early release due to mistreatment, and colonial lawmakers established different, often lesser, punishments for disobedient servants compared to disobedient slaves. Above all, indentured servitude wasn’t hereditary. The children of servants were free; the children of slaves were property. To elide this is to diminish the realities of chattel slavery, which—perhaps—is one reason the most vocal purveyors of the myth are neo-Confederate and white supremacist groups.

Reddit is fun
I mean there is a study and shit that suggests that this number may even go up to 45%, but whatever. Projection I guess.
>Dude, you under like an internet rock or something? Check out the crazy on /r/shitredditsays and /r/tumblrinaction to get an idea of how fucked in the head these "feminists" are.
Ah yes, the intentionally over-the-top subreddit and the one dedicated to picking out the worst of tumblr are perfectly objective representations of modern-day feminism.
Good job /r/technology, you saved the day once again.
Seriously though, there's nothing more cringeworthy than when reddit pretends to be 4chan. All that failed greentext...
>/>mentioning fullchan on reddit
>/>inviting plebbitors to fullchan
He says, as a year old reddit account.
>What's utterly devastating is that now that 4chan has been brought to it's knees, neutered and spayed, attention has been directed towards fullchan because they, the enemy know that it is the new bastion of free speech, and they can't have that.
>Now the internet is mainstream and it's being fucked, good job dickheads.
Oh my god these threads are glorious. I can feel my smug levels rapidly increasing with every passing moment.
"Top Critic Reviews" are not so good:
Less than 50% liked it.
EDIT: Consensus is basically somewhere between "average mindless summer movie" and "good comedy".
> The all was implied
So you assumed something and found out your assumption was incorrect? Nice.
> Also, I like how your argument has changed from the original one that in and inside meant the same thing. You've accepted that's not true, then?
You referenced my English being bad which is funny since I've already provided a source for correction, so here's another one: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/stay-in.
Good luck in your next attempt and this kinda thing tho.
This is pretty much everything I wanted to say.
Bush's foreign aid in Africa to fight diseases is basically one of the few good things to come out of his administration. As you said, it doesn't make up for all the truly horrible things he did but it should still be acknowledged as a legitimately good thing. It should probably not be surprising then that Trump's administration will probably cut foreign aid to Africa.
The problem with that lyric is that he rhymes Kodak with Kodak.
>Me not working hard? Yeah right
>Picture that with a Kodak
>And, better yet, go to Times Square
>Take a picture of me with a Kodak
It's also worth noting that he is sponsored by Kodak. Here's the rap genius link: http://genius.com/1640275
I think an analogous lyric, which I've not seen trashed, would be How do U Want It:
>Forgive me I'm a rider, still I'm just a simple man
>All I want is money, fuck the fame I'm a simple man
2Pac rhyming simple man with simple man always struck me as pretty corny, but doesn't seem to make the radar, perhaps because everything was better in le 90's.
edit: I guess they rebranded rap genius as just genius...never noticed that before.
Glenn Greenwald is also claiming they do not exist.

2 hours, dude, what's your point? Are you just gonna play Indefinite Interrogation with me? You know, there's a reason why AHS is more popular than circlebroke2, and it's that they often have a point beyond being... offended? And actually want to do something about things instead of just complaining, like compiling lists of offenders, and other high effort stuff. Meanwhile, for all the leftism in this sub, you all really love seeing Reddit shill to the media for money in this particular case, which is the real reason why I'm such a keyboard warrior here, not because I fap to dead people or other shit. That other guy in particular resembled a right winger's caricature of a "Triggered" person so much they actually made me lol at this otherwise sombre topic. If you're still interested in playing Indefinite Interrogation (you gonna ask me 2 hours a day or some stupid shit?), you can download the game here instead of arguing with me, as I don't think in that fun to argue with.
