  • I'm happy my man plays Xbox (specifically Destiny) in his free time! 1) We can play together so it's an activity we both like while staying quarantined from the community, 2) He's extremely responsible outside of playtime- being our sole bread winner, makes the majority of the meals and our dishwasher, and 3) I'd rather have him play Destiny for HOURS daily than have him running around on me, I don't have to worry about drunk driving, car wrecks, lying, cheating, etc etc cuz he's right here at home!❤

  • Jessica Clencin Henriquez "Maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims" First of all, that's not how the world should work. If literally every perceived victim was given the benefit of the doubt, there'd be a crisis of wrongful convictions. Not to mention the sheer number of false accusations that lead to the ruination of the lives of those falsely accused. Semi recent example, Mattress girl. Claims she was sexually assaulted by a dude, claimed the campus had done nothing about her claims and marched around campus dragging her mattress as a sign of protest. Others helped her around, shit blew up, dude got expelled from the campus. Turned out she was fooling around with the dude, she grew incredibly possessive, then after they broke up she decided suddenly, because he was nolonger with her, it wasn't sex it was rape, all backed up by their SMS records over a substantial period of time. He successfully sued the college. Some STILL side with her, and his name was still dragged through the mud. Point being, you can't just blanket'ly believe the victim. If someone IS the victim of a criminal act, it needs to be looked into, and officially judged upon. Keep this shit out of the court of public opinion, especially if it ain't illegal.

  • Change and progress follow the same types of patterns as the stonk market. There are ups and downs. And additionally, similarly to the stonk market, there are 🐻 and there are 🐂 for that same change and progress. Me personally, I’m a 🐂. I truly believe that change and progress is 🚀🚀🚀🚀🌕. There may be dips, there may be peaks. But 💎✋🏻 that progress when it happens, because then everybody wins.

  • I disagree with the idea that censoring extremist content is what is causing radicalization. The problem is not that censorship causes echo chambers. The problem is those echo chambers already exist as self-imposed from those with extremists views. Those that tend toward the extreme already ignore information that disputes their beliefs as "mainstream/liberal lies" They are already lost. What removing that content does is keep it from spreading on social media and becoming a mainstream narrative. The truth is that lies spread faster than truth...and sure maybe you can't stop the lies...but I don't agree it is counter productive to at least slow them down.

  • De-stressing via video games is not wrong. I have a mother who is like that, claims it is for kids and I need to grow up. I met my fiancee on League of Legends 7 years ago, we have dates for 5 and he popped the question last year. We still play and have our respective games we play separately. When ask, why is this bad? She had no answer besides it is for kids. I came back with that gaming has a mass market in adults, is better than watching tv since I am engaging my brain, usually talking online with friends, and having fun. Totally went over her head. My grandma gets it, but my mom is a lost cause.

Yeah I'm a single mom of three sons so yeah its great but it's becoming them more impacient and if I take their phones they cry and get very upset. So we need to make them do other stuff not only screen time

  • Please cover the new accusers coming out against Armie Hammer. He's still currently endangering women in Cayman and I hope to see as many women warned about him as possible! Yet another accuser came forwards today on IG @milkandhoneyroses and her story is backed up by an article that she had someone interview her for anonymously and write a full article about her experience with him. The article came out like a year or so (I think) before these new accusations. PS. it's also pronounced cay-MAN, not cay-min ;)

Teacher: Then go forth and label the whole world! You can do it! Kid 2: I want to start a blog for young Republicans that helps us organize and plot how we're going to overthrow Biden and reinstall Trump as president by force! Teacher: Yes! That exactly. Blog away! Kid 3: I know that there are something like a billion people on Earth who don't even have clean drinking water, but I'd like to spend a disproportionate amount of my time and energy getting butthurt whenever it seems like someone might have in some small way suggested that there is anything at all in life other than video games, or that screen time shouldn't occupy literally one hundred percent of my waking life. I'd also like to retweet this article I just found about credible studies linking screen time to serious morbidities in both mental and physical health including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety and suicide. Then I'd like to whine some more about how hard it is to be a middle class North American during a relatively mild pandemic. Teacher: Without hypocrisy, there can be no society! Yeah, you're right... we're gonna be just fine. ;P

  • How organic was that growth of Driver’s License & how much of it was a push from record labels? I have never looked up the song on my own but it auto played for me on SoundCloud while listening to a genre that might as well be the opposite of hers, then again when one of my playlists on Spotify ended. I’m not trying to take away her success I’m definitely happy for how her song is going. But as a musician you only dream of success like this so you try to break down why a song got popular & I’m just wondering how much of this was pure luck of the right people listening to this song at the right time, & how much of it is a push by record labels & streaming services because this song went from obscurity to mega hit so quickly.

  • Developmental ramifications of children spending most of their time on technology IS bad. Because it puts the parent out of the equation and lets a child live in their own made up world where things aren't real, which does encourage a child to develop bad habits, incorrect correlations, and awful social skills that could lead to social anxiety. Those who think these things don't matter are already lost causes because they refuse to understand and accept the science behind growth and development. Why do kids and adults seemingly have way less accountability than they did years ago? Because of the internet. We have been on a downward spiral for generations due to technology becoming all consuming. The comments I've read from younger people even about body image and what they think is real is staggering. That's literally due to social media and influencers making things incredibly fake. This is a serious problem that is a slow burning one. We won't see the terrible outcome for years, but the truth is that kids are really fucking dumb and awkward now and it's because they are attached at the hand to their phones, controllers, mice, and remotes. It's funny too, because this is the age of information, and people STILL actively choose to do the most useless things with ALL of their free time.

  • Why.. are people not more concerned about people's private social medias getting hacked and basically used to destroy their lives? WHY are we okay with this? Why aren't we focusing on this target culture? Because it's celebs being targeted? There are so many problems due to a lack of online policing and lack of laws for this shit and people are really just okay with it because it's a rich white guy making a joke about sex with a woman. I don't get all of these double standards and I don't get how people aren't more concerned with these hackers trying to destroy a person's public image.

  • Facebook ruined the internet. Back when i got on the internet. The first thing I was told (before i even touched the keys) was don't ever trust anything you see on the internet. Don't trust what anyone says to you, dont trust websites, just never trust anything unless you have done the research yourself. Everything was always hidden. You had usernames, you never gave anyone your real name. Everything was incognito, kept separate. Someone that found ur social media site would have to be a friend or had stalked you hard to find out information. Facebook came along and instantly destroyed it all in seconds. By having people give there real names and a picture. Now they even have ur phone number 🙄. People getting on today think everything they see on the internet is real. We need to go back to the time of incognito. Back to a time where everything is to be considered fake. Not to silence people. Silencing a free people is a slippery slope for the power hungry!

Civilization seems to constantly go from one side of extremism to another but can't ever seem to find a real answer to issues which is middle ground. I always hope for it but if we keep going back and forth from far right to far left, no progress will be made. The internet and social media aren't helping either, just makes issues worse. As long as the fear of being wrong exists we won't be where we need to be.
