That’s why they’re called micro-agressions. Because they’re tiny and seem insignificant, but once a person is asked the same question over and over and over, it stops being one ignorant question from a well meaning person and starts to become a society seeing them as outsiders, ugly, uneducated, etc. Even if the things seem “nice”. Just imagine how would you feel if people kept congratulating you for knowing or doing basic stuff like speaking properly, or being amazed at the fact that you listen to the same music that most people in the country enjoy.
So yeah, obviously they’re not huge attacks or anything, but at the same time they’re seemly innocent questions that make a lot of people feel bad, and it’s important to know what those things are so we can stop doing things that affect other people in a negative way. Yay for a better society! :)
How do you know someone is not vegan? He’ll look up for posts with vegan on the title, scroll down and start commenting about how much vegans are always so nosey and how they like to tell you about their habits. LOL.
Please tell us about how much you like meat. We’d love to read your opinion!
Awwww, you came all the way here to tell us how horrible vegan food is? I’m sure you’re super confident about your food choices and think all vegans are always up in your business, right? :)
Yeah, some of those seem to be making fun of something or simply hyperbolic.
Nobody. But people don’t have the same reaction if they glance at the nutrition facts of their tea and see 90 calories vs. 240 cals.
Yes, they do. The thing about satire is that it should make fun of abusers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satire), not victims. In this case, it would have been totally fine if they had made fun of Chris Brown’s violent actions without also shaming, ridiculing and naming his victim. The Onion writers are smart, they could have figured out a way to do this without much trouble.
Maybe it’s some people just don’t understand what satire is and lack basic google skills. From Wikipedia “Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.”
Because it’s the whole boy’s head, but his nose is tiny and his mouth is barely visible since he is looking to the left. The part of the father’s face that you can see is his nose and mouth. There’s a visible line where the kid’s face ends and the mouth of the father begins.
Because the people on this side of the mirror are having fun with the heads of people on the other side of the table.
Are you saying you don’t find it hilarious to make fun of POC and say they don’t speak English? So edgy!
Yeah, it wasn’t funny.
Oh, come on! They’re not models, they’re good musicians that look fine. It’s o.k. to say good things about them and their looks.
Ha! And it says No. 1 instead of No. 7, and apparently 40cl 70% Vol. instead of 70cl 40% Vol. That’s cool. I’m sure that’s a Luois Vouitonn bag and she’s wearing Niike shoes.
You can dislike her and her actions all you want, but she didn’t fire the guy nor intended that to happen. She could definitely have handled things in a different way, but she just twitted about something that happened and disturbed her, like thousands of people do all the time. So, if you think what the guy did wasn’t wrong, why aren’t you mad at the company for firing him? Besides, if both guys worked at the same company and just one of them was fired, why do people think it was a direct consequence of her twit? It just makes no sense. I understand opposing to her actions, even being mad, but thinking someone deserves being unemployable for being either mad about something, passive aggressive or even an asshole on twitter? Isn’t that too much?
Did you even read the press release? The first mini paragraph of their non apology ends with “her skin painted in black.”
The photographer’s apology seems more sincere but still leaves one wondering, if he wanted someone with tanned and golden skin, why didn’t he hired one of the thousands of models with those characteristics?
What kind of people are in the press room? My two year old niece could come up with better questions. She just won an Oscar after working hard on her character for months, I guess, and people ask her what she thought when she “fell” for a second or what was the process of wearing a dress?
Awww, don’t say never. Thinking is not that difficult. Analyzing society and discrimination is not that hard, you could do it if you try.
It is, fatty! (see what I did? Awful, right? Sorry for using your weight as an example)
Neither did all the other people commenting here. :)
But sometimes you just can’t get away from them, just look at the rest of the responses here. They’re everywhere! :(
A double is someone who acts the parts an actor cannot play. In this case, I assume she basically appeared on all scenes where the actress was supposed to be talking to her nonexistent twin, thus turning her back to the camera, but still having to work on almost all the scenes were the main characters appeared.
It was a joke! People should feel embarrassed for not understanding it, instead of indignant for seeing a public person poking fun and herself and paparazzi culture.
It’s not just the pictures, I’ve seen interviews and he seems both gorgeous and intolerably obnoxious.
Kids targeted by these kind of catalogues actually want what they see on ads. Boys don’t want soldiers, they want G.I. Joes, girls don’t want dolls, they want Barbies, kids don’t want astronauts, they want Buzz Lightyear. They don’t live in a vacuum, they want what they see on movies and stores and ads and what other classmates think is cool. And it’s important that as parents, aunts/uncles, grandpas and society we work towards making them feel confident about what they like (no “that’s for girls, sweety, chose the other one”) and look for high quality products that will help them develop as people (no “the blue one works better, but you are a girl and look, the pink one is so pretty!”).
Chocolate is made out of cocoa beans. Most commercial brands use sugar and an emulsifier to make dark chocolate (the less percentage of cocoa, the more it tastes like the “milk” one), and add milk powder or solids to make milk chocolate, which has just around 20% cocoa solids.
Haha. Do you get as angry every time you hear about “the sexiest person alive” things in magazines, or the “best dressed”? What about the “best actor”? I’d love to see your reaction when someone you like says something like you are the most amazing person in the world “Are you fucking crazy? The whole world is full of amazing people, do you think I’m better than the president? Than the people who have won Nobel prizes? You need to get your priorities in order”
But isn’t it a real problem to be in so much need of attention/affection that you’d make/fake a suicide attempt? I’ve felt lonely sometimes in my life, but faking stuff so people feel sad and pity for me has never ever crossed my mind. What are those kids feeling/thinking that leads them to that?
That had nothing to do with race. Being a piece of shit comes in all colors. There are so many black people to be proud of and support, you are just making a full of yourself angrily babbling about someone like him.
Haha, older men making no homo jokes and talking about how icky girls are. How edgy!
So the guy is mad because a famous actor whose name he didn’t even know didn’t stop and talk to him as if they were friends and instead treated him like “the help”? Meaning that the guy actually thinks he deserves some special treatment for reading news on TV, and is mad because someone ignored him or, as he sees it, treated him like “the help”, whom I assume he thinks is o.k. to ignore? Whiny douchebag.
