why are people whining, he's pretty correct: i see mainstream media training girls to be more like snookis than independant thinkers, usually

What ******* country do you live in...?
User avatar #27 to #25 - herecomesjohnny (01/09/2014) [-]
just another country in which supermodels are more famous than authors
User avatar #28 to #27 - krobeles ONLINE (01/09/2014) [-]
Yeah. Which one is that? Because the one i live in, dosen't have that...

Well. Depends on how you define "fame" anyway...
User avatar #30 to #28 - eating (01/09/2014) [-]
are you that delusional? countries all over the world are promoting sluts and untalented morons as famous people, while someone who discovers something important that could benefit humanity in medical sense (or anything like that) barely get any recognition
User avatar #72 to #30 - jukuku (01/09/2014) [-]
Blame the general population, if it received better ratings, or was a bigger interest, it would be the 'mainstream'
User avatar #39 to #30 - krobeles ONLINE (01/09/2014) [-]
Oh yes. I get your point, but i disagree. In modern society, fame isn't dependant upon what the media broadcasts anymore. The internet is a freely available source of limitless information, so the famous people are the people who people look into through the internet under their own volition. Not the forgettable slobs who flash their stupidity on the TV screen.
User avatar #50 to #39 - eating (01/09/2014) [-]
are you retarded, more people watch tv then they browse internet. older people who browse internet mainly go watch news, and news on media sites that broadcast their news on tv aswell..
User avatar #82 to #50 - krobeles ONLINE (01/09/2014) [-]
Oh. I'm sorry. I wasn't aware i the retired demographic set the bar for all of society.
And besides. What you're talking about, is a diminnishing demographic, altogether. I dont think TV is gonna be around at all in 30-50 years.

And lastly, theres no reason to be a dick and resort to name calling...

User avatar #54 to #41 - memeinmycoffee (01/09/2014) [-]
It's subtle and it's not happening as much as it would've when we were younger.

Basically it's situations where women can't play sports or do stuff other than cook or be attractive or clean that give the impression that women are lesser and therefore don't deserve respect.
User avatar #64 to #54 - gelind (01/09/2014) [-]
I think its more to do with the fact that that ******* in the rap industry have been refering to women as bitches and hoes and tricks for something like 10 years and its now transitioned to the rest of the populous, who are doing it the same now. Or it could be refering to scat porn.

So this is perfectly fine in your opinion, but if a ponyfag posts a (more) relevant picture, shame them for using it?

I do not see the difference
User avatar #84 to #83 - awesomanium (01/09/2014) [-]
1. Personally, I wouldn't really care, use whatever you want as long as it's relevant
2. I think that, generally, people are more impartial to Doctor Who and have a greater dislike for MLP. Although there are people who don't like Doctor Who, it's more of a minority (I think)
note: I'm neither a fan of Doctor Who nor My Little Pony
User avatar #85 to #84 - drastronomy ONLINE (01/09/2014) [-]
1.
i feel this is forced as **** , and whofags thumb it up
2. yeah, because instead of fat neckbeard faggots, they are just portrayed just as faggots who think they know physics based on what they hear from the show.

As described excellently by leonhardt,

"Dr. Who is a ****** TV show with low budget effects and no attempt at an overarching plot that makes any sense. The writers' knowledge of actual science is hilariously pathetic, so they just handwave everything they have no chance of explaining as "wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff".
User avatar #86 to #85 - awesomanium (01/09/2014) [-]
Anyone who believes they know physics because they watch Doctor Who is hilariously wrong.
Also, like I said, I'm not a fan of Doctor Who though I've watched it a bit at times when I had nothing better to do , but that description seems a bit biased. From what I've seen the effects aren't that bad, the storyline is generally okay, though nothing to write home about and quite weak in some areas.
User avatar #87 to #86 - drastronomy ONLINE (01/09/2014) [-]
i agree
Its alright when you are bored and have nothing else to watch

Its ******* sad that the media is bombarded with the next new wacky thing Justin Bieber or some other dead-end child star, slut, or retard is doing, yet when a 16 year old kid discovered a way to detect pancreatic cancer using nothing but a blood strip and a ******* multimeter, the ONLY ******* place I hear talking about that is the Colbert Report. Comedy Central is a more reliable source of information that just about any other, do you know how ******* sad that is?

During my first year of college, I took a class called Critical Analysis and Semiotics, basically a study of signs and symbolisms in our world. A lot of it covered marketing methods and ploys to sell products. It's incredibly jarring to know that almost every aspect of our society is and has been used to manipulate us. It's quite scary really.

Reading is great, You can read any book you want, there's no one forcing you to study some boring subject.

Some people hate books because they struggled to read/write when they were young and were forced to read boring books and study at school. They just need to find a good book.

I just love how ******* random that got, and how unrelated the top half is from the bottom, we went from false beauty standards to understanding ourselves, with a little illiteracy in the middle?
User avatar #60 to #48 - MitsukiOokami (01/09/2014) [-]
It's not unrelated, but at the same time he's all over the map on a topic. He says advertisement creates false beauty standards, then creates a false illusion for men, then jumps topics with no transition to how marketing is dumbing us down. I think they cut something out of this, or this guy has ADD.

'the powers that be' are actually working very hard at getting smart people educated; it's a long term investment.

Chances are if you're poor and/or dumb (like the people targeted by the aforementioned lies), you're better off not thinking too hard on the subject.

The realization that a society made up entirely of self-aware citizens is unsustainable can be traced back at least as far as Plato's republic. It's unclear if it will remain the case in the future (what with the potential automation of menial jobs), but as it stands you're actually kind of cruel for trying to deny the dumber members of society their more primal pursuits.
User avatar #11 to #5 - elsyrup (01/09/2014) [-]
Who mentioned denying anybody anything? I think your views on education are incredibly shortsighted. Awareness, intelligence and consciousness have nothing to do with how you make your money. You've gone off on a mad tangent about a possible Utopian society where everybody is a brain surgeon and nobody get's to be the janitor they always dreamed of being because they were born poor. Too much stupid.
#12 to #11 - anon (01/09/2014) [-]
Attractiveness, pack status, procreation, ect. aren't arbitrary 'lies'; they're things that used to be important for natural selection and people enjoy them on a primal level. To disillusion someone, to marginalize their perceived purpose in life, is to deny them that enjoyment. Why tell someone they're stupid for liking what they like; even if it's true?

Awareness and intelligence don't necessarily have anything to do with profession, but a high level of either will make a menial job downright miserable - was the point.
User avatar #89 to #12 - elsyrup (01/09/2014) [-]
The only person to have suggested that anybody is stupid for any reason is you, the message in question is not shunning anybody, it simply offers the idea of independent thought and preservation of the mind, read it. You're radicalizing a non-issue, there is no threat of marginalization, oppression or assimilation whatsoever. The image in question merely suggests that every one of us can benefit from expanding our minds, personally I consider that a truism; asking who we want to be rather than who those that seek to gain from our insecurities want us to be. That isn't to say that this harmless ideology should be somehow regimented and enforced and any subsequent "primal urges" or ways of living or thinking quashed, that was never even hinted at. I think you're a sensationalist, you're talking a lot but you're not actually saying anything. There is no imminent overhaul of our society, it's just an individuals shared introspection, something for the individual to think about, that's all. Stop getting so worked up, pretending there's even an issue at hand on the off chance you get the opportunity to lord your thesaurus.com vocabulary over someone less stupid than you, you pompous, anonymous, self-inflating, tangent-weaving, drama-queen. That's all folks!
#92 to #89 - anon (01/10/2014) [-]
The argument that was that 'the powers that be' are using said 'lies' to make people stupid - the obvious implication is that believing said things makes you stupid. I'm not arguing that point though; some portion of people being relatively stupid is kind of a given. The issue is cause/effect. The author thinks people become stupid because they are taught these things, I'd argue it's the stupid people who believe them - and not for arbitrary reasons.

The notion that everyone in a society benefits from expanding their mind is wrong. It's a pleasant notion favored by the smart people who have benefited and get to intellectually challenge themselves in a job like teaching, but it simply breaks down when you try to apply it to everyone in a society - sorry.

On a side note, claiming that everyone can benefit from expanding their mind then faulting me for my vocabulary is a little dissonant.
User avatar #93 to #92 - elsyrup (01/10/2014) [-]
I'm going to make some assumptions about you seeing as you're anonymous and it might entertain me; I'm guessing yank, around 20 years old, you have a few close friends but you're not exactly popular, you spend too much time on the internet and you're a habitual masturbator. Vocabulary has nothing to do with open-mindedness, you weren't being faulted you were being mocked, none of what you've said has anything to do with anything, I've already demonstrated your passion for debate in lieu of debatable topics. You have nothing to prove by dedicating your time to arguing with me.
#94 to #93 - anon (01/10/2014) [-]
Wrong on most counts, but as you were describing the average FJ user I'm not sure where you wanted to go with that. I'm also not sure why you'd mock someone for something that isn't a fault.

Vocabulary has a lot to do with open-mindedness. It correlates tightly and it's not hard to imagine why; language is the medium by which we communicate ideas and being able to more precisely interpret/convey those ideas leads to a lot less misunderstanding. I suppose you'll write this off as another tangent, but that's pretty close-minded of you.

In any case, I learn a fair bit from being forced to articulate my views - so thanks I guess.

"Our young men, today, are being told that women are whores. Bitches. Things to be screwed. Beaten. **** on. Shamed."

Not sure where this whiny tool is, but here, we're taught to treat everyone with respect. And if someone calls a young lady a whore or tries to hit her, to kick the offending douchebag's ass.

Of course the chalkboard preacher in the post would probably take offense to that too.

Also, shame on him for using holocaust as a buzzword and for using education as a soapbox.
#45 to #8 - preventerfire (01/09/2014) [-]
You've obviously never been to any inner city classrooms, right? I spent one year with Americorps in Harlem, and I can assure you that most young boys are being taught exactly this
User avatar #56 to #8 - memeinmycoffee (01/09/2014) [-]
A lot of the time places (like the American South for example) where people are taught to respect women are places where the sexism is actually surprisingly prominent. Yeah, you beat someone up for hitting a woman, but why? If she's your friend, sure, but young men are told "Fight them back yourself, you pussy." It's subtle so you wouldn't notice unless you think about it.
#23 to #8 - anon (01/09/2014) [-]
that's adrien brody, he's the most iconic actor to star in a holocaust movie. He studied that **** more than you
#9 to #8 - anon (01/09/2014) [-]
Disagree all you want but he is using the word correctly. What you thought it was made up just to describe what happened in ww2?
#18 to #9 - jemmydubloon (01/09/2014) [-]
the definition maybe correct but, using the word Holocaust to draw a metaphor between being a gullible douche and the mass genocide of six million fellow humans is a little disingenuous. Like a politician comparing his opposition to Hitler. It's just a propaganda term.
User avatar #35 to #18 - canadiantrekker (01/09/2014) [-]
The word "holocaust" wasn't created specifically for what happened during WW2. It's definition fits his application of the word perfectly.
#14 to #9 - anon (01/09/2014) [-]
It was....

Other than the archaic meaning of burning a sacrificial offering I guess.
User avatar #81 - diggytits (01/09/2014) [-]
Wouldn't reading books that other people wrote be the opposite of stimulating our own imagination and cultivating our own belief systems? The writer certainty needs to imagine to write a story but aren't you just listening to their imagination and not imagining yourself? Also, wouldn't your belief systems be specifically biased due to being subjected to the belief systems of another in a light specifically designed by that person? I understand reading is good, and usually much better than the current pop-culture, but I feel as if these reasons aren't why.
