Young suicides up



i would correlate this with the decline of religion

when life has no meaning and you have replaced spirituality with products, and you are telling everyone the world is ending, then no duh people are hopeless.

I'd say the Coddling Of The American Mind has a lot of important things to say about this - fundamentally that children are being taught the precise opposite of the coping strategies recommended under CBT.

To play devil's advocate, it is bullshit that Margot got a second nomination to
Trump just got The View to cheer for white supremacist Richard Spencer :messenger_grinning_smiling:

This feels like a Sacha Baron Cohen stitch-up, but it's real life. Crikey.

Best part: “Ivanka is not a woman in tech,” tweeted Brianna Wu, a video game developer who is running for Congress in Massachusetts." -- You have to be pretty ballsy to make a statement like that.
nah she just wants to leech off the Trump name for potential votes. this is pure pandering to the left, nothing risky about saying such a thing.

Wasn't Brianna Wu that wierdo poster on Teamxbox who had an avatar picture of feet and who pretended to be a woman? In the end it turned out to be a bloke perving on people?

Or was that a coincidence?

If some made up fantasy about the supposed meaning of life is the only thing keeping you alive.... yeah, no.

Also spirituality and religion are far from the same.

I meanly remember him being part from the unholy trio: Zoë Quinn, Anita Sarkeesian and Brianna Wu.

If DoorDash is not prepared to have their drivers enter a disabled person's apartment and pre-chew their food for them, maybe they shouldn't have started a business #DeliveringAbleism

This woman's pain can only be cured by 10 burrito bowls delivered ASAP, she shouldn't suffer just because she forgot to charge the Hoveround #ThingsDisabledPeopleKnow

Half of British women 'have poor sexual health'


As usual, the standard response to explaining Britain's ever deepening societal problems is to blame it all on a lack of money.
Nothing to do with the promotion of reckless liberal ideas and the breakdown of morality. It's all down to government cuts.

Froms ASA page -
Although the guidance did not prohibit ads from featuring only one gender, we considered that because the ad strongly implied only men could excel in the specialisms and roles depicted we concluded the ad presented gender stereotypes in way that was likely to cause harm and therefore breached the Code.

"likely to cause harm"

wat. I'm boggled at what sort of harm they feel was likely to take place.
We can't really fathom what sort of conclusion these maniacs came to in their heads, to see something that isn't there.

PC Specialist should have said that all three men featured in the ad identified as a nonbinary technosexuals - that would be progressive enough for now.

Anime waifu panty shots are basically the same thing as paintings of the french baroque masters, if you think about it.

Racist argument, plain and simple.
Always do the simple test: Change the race keeping everything the same and the same argument would be exposed as the racist garbage it is.

And that's before you even consider how an immutable characteristic such as race has any bearing on anyone's ability to excel in any field for which BAFTA give a performance-based award for.
It's the equivalent logic to decrying a book due to the font its words are printed in.

Could have went in funny pics thread but whatever




“Colombia must be respected,” Gómez said. “What will the family of a person who died in the fight against drug trafficking feel when a firm like Walmart promotes a bag of cocaine from Colombia?”
The now removed product description tied the sweater to Colombia, saying, “the best snow comes straight from South America,” and “Santa really likes to savour the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A, Colombian snow.”

Expedite her denouncement of her U.S. citizenship and waive any taxes that normally would follow after they have emmigrated from our country.

Allow every citizen who wants to leave based on this reason to have this one time gift.

Watch America get greater with each emmigration.
As long as they refuse a return visa.
