22. Re: Morning Mobilization Mar 28, 2017, 18:42 Asmodai

Asmodai, do you want to know why no one is debating that parents should be more involved and careful about letting their kids use the internet? The article was literally about that... instructing how to use the content control filters on youtube. Are you too busy being "so fucking brilliant" to even read it and realize that?

What Beamer actually called you out for is your propensity to label people as snowflakes and SJW's in order to make yourself feel better... and that basically being a giant red flag for an opinion being about as deep as a puddle of water. He couldn't have been more accurate. Example #2: Timmeh

So please go on and keep rambling about exactly what the article was intended to address. You've been to this page 3 times now and still not accidentally read the thing you are commenting on. No one is laughing at you... I promise.

I guess you missed this part of the article while you were climbing up on your high horse... =)

"It's perfectly legitimate for a parent to believe that something called Peppa Pig is going to be Peppa Pig," she says. "And I think many of them have come to trust YouTube... as a way of entertaining your child for ten minutes while the parent makes a phone call. I think if it wants to be a trusted brand then parents should know that protection is in place."
...
The company also suggested that parents use the YouTube Kids app, which is available for mobile phones and tablets, and turn on "restricted mode" which limits flagged content. It can be found at the bottom of any page on the YouTube site, but cautions that "no filter is 100% accurate".


It is not perfectly legitimate to trust anything on the web, you always need to do your due diligence. Don't toss the kid in front of Youtube when you want to make a fucking phone call, problem solved. Maybe we should just all click those emails claiming to be from our bank saying that our account is overdrawn and please address immediately... /eyeroll

As for propensity, I've used the term snowflake in exactly one comments section. Beamer has his tits in a twist over gender neutral post comments and we've had very little to do with each other before that. As trends go, that's a pretty small sample size. Reeks of oversensitivity, dare I say 'snowflake-ism', when an opinion (and not even a really offensive one imo) causes people to burst in to indignant, self righteous flames... =)

Ciao!

Eh, the phrase has been twisted and abused into meaninglessness now.

"Special snowflake" when used pejoratively, is supposed to signify a person who has unreasonable expectations that their own personal needs be met over the needs of others.

But today you see the term trotted out (usually by /pol/tards) to describe vast swaths of the population.

The term is basically used today to mean "someone who is concerned about something I'm not personally concerned about".

Which, quite frankly, makes the person using the term more of a snowflake than anyone else, because they are dismissing the concerns of a lot of people simply because they personally don't give a shit.


actually it pretty much describes nearly all leftist indoctrinated college students and professors, actors and media types these days from nearly every campus in America and Europe.

Big difference from what once were normal people with varying concerns. Now its a bunch of brainwashed, indoctrinated tantrum throwing fools...aka snowflakes.

The disturbing YouTube videos that are tricking children.

C'mon folks, we've had Happy Tree Friends for almost 20 years, and you're just realizing this now?

Do I even need to mention the HTF link is NSFW?

Pay attention to him, people. There's no one else here with his special insight on selfish and obnoxious opinions based on an inflated opinion of themselves (not to mention a keen understanding of failure). You are in the presence of a master...

/grin

It's dreadfully ironic just how much he lacks the self awareness to see that he has become the quintessential thin skinned SJW.

He hasn't even addressed the topic at hand, ie. inappropriate material that looks like children's entertainment slipping in to kids hands. Too busy bursting in to flames because I have the temerity to demand that parents should actually take care of their kids. What fucking cheek I have...

What do you wanna bet that Asmodei is on his 3rd bowl of popcorn, that cunning little snowflake.

Actually I hadn't dropped by to check up on how far up his own ass Beamer was tunneling tbh, but he sure doesn't disappoint...

I stand by my original statement. Anyone who let's a 3 year old (or a 7 year old, which is where my son is at at the mo) browse the internet without vetting their content is too fucking lazy to be a parent and wants to offload their parental responsibilities to everyone else...

So yeah, fuck those selfish douchebags who do not love their kids enough to be a true parent. Those that are too pig ignorant to spend the time to work out how to put a parental lock on their computers. Make it everyone else problem to take care of your kid.

And as for Beamer and his ilk, who lead with their glass chins and insults, good luck to you guys. Sling your insults, make your wild guesses, cast your aspersions. You can even make believe you're hitting the mark if you wish.

Which of my opinions have been selfish? Where have I advocated an opinion that helps me at the expense of others?

Well said. It's a word used by sensitive people who are very self-involved and not at all self-aware.

To be fair, they don't have a monopoly on thin skin.

Parents or old age, aka, "ageism / age privilege / gerontocracy".

Yeah, not sorry that I do not Divide Et Impera and Argument from Age logical fallacy Peter.

When used dismissively, I'd partly agree with you. However, no one person cares about all things that other people care about.

I generally tend to agree wholly with this:

Bodolza wrote on Mar 27, 2017, 13:57:
"Special snowflake" is just another term for self-centered.

Especially when it comes to people whom are so self-centered about their own interests that they work to preclude the interests of others.

I've also observed "snowflake" used to describe someone whom is naive.

"Special snowflake" is just another term for self-centered. Older people have been complaining about the younger generation being self-centered since the dawn of time.

Yup.

And, like you said, it should be someone concerned with their own needs, but is generally thrown at members of the majority discussing concerns for members of a minority, while the person using it is concerned with their own needs, so... yeah, back to your final sentence.
