I really don’t understand the controversy surrounding the rape joke. Honestly. Like, he’s insanely inappropriate 99% of the time. Why does everyone seem so surprised NOW?
I read an article in the newspaper where a guy was complaining that Cheetos made a commercial mocking the seriousness of bank robberies by making a commercial where someone tries to rob the Cheeto guy. The man was highly offended because his wife was killed in a bank robbery. Totally understandable.
What I don’t understand is why he thinks Cheetos was in the wrong simply because HE was offended.
My aunt is highly sensitive to anything involving car crashes because my cousin died in one when she was 18. Those Allstate commercials make her cringe and often times cry. You won’t find her writing into Allstate to complain, though.
What offends you is COMPLETELY subjective. Yes, rape jokes are offensive to nearly everyone, but that doesn’t mean that Daniel Tosh shouldn’t have the freedom to say them. It’s his choice. Losing fans is an understandable consequence of having made the joke, but backlash from the media (who take an “objective” stance) is completely stupid.
last year i thought my english teacher was really hot and i had the highest grade in my class, so i always made an extra effort to maintain it and seem as smart as possible.
we started reading semi-difficult literature as a class out loud, so i always did the typical thing and read my passage like four times before i had to read it out loud just to make sure i didn’t stumble on any words or anything.
anyway, this one time we did popcorn reading (which is the most annoying thing on the planet) and i had no way of knowing which passage i would have to read, so i knew i’d fuck it up just from feeling pressured. and i did.
it had the word malevolent in it and FOR WHATEVER REASON i decided to pronounce it “mal-vo-lent” even though i knew the proper pronunciation. i realized it immediately after and just wanted to crawl into a hole and die.
i wonder if people get more scrutiny when they’re really skinny than they do when they are overweight. it might not seem that way but most of the notes on skinny girls pictures on tumblr are like “feed her”…. wtf. you don’t see comments saying “take her food away” on heavier girls pictures.
biggest pet peeve on tumblr/in life in general. i hate that people think it’s ok to make fun of people for being “too thin” or skinny. i especially hate the fact that it’s been decided that it’s completely ok/funny to do so straight to their face.
like, i’ve seen teachers make comments to girls who are obviously struggling with their weight like “oh! you’re so skinny!” imagine if that had been “oh! you’re so fat!”
I don’t understand why drug addicts and their family members sincerely believe they can successfully overcome addiction while living in the same place, the same area, around the same people who introduced them to drugs.
Going to rehab and then coming home to your same friends and the same places is pointless. You’re just going to fall prey to the same things you did to begin with.
I have this theory that men named Mark, Hank, Tony, and Frank are just born old. I’ve never encountered a young person with any of those names and I can’t imagine calling a cute little baby boy Frank (or any of those), either.
They just crop up as 50 year old men every now and then. This is my theory.
