I didn't know whether to put this in deep thoughts or multi-media. I figured this is the best place for it.

So I've returned after my COVID-19 fucking induced nightmare of a shitshow of a life. Which is why I haven't been around lately. I got sick, put out fires, got sick AGAIN, put out some more fires. And I'm getting sick again. So I'm back. Kind of.

In my government imposed quarantine, I've done a bit of thinking. Mostly because I have fuck all to do and I've not been a gaming mood. So I've been reading books, watching TV, being a weeb and reading manga (fuck comics) and occasionally doing some work. I've taken the time to explore new things, which means looking for reviews. And holy fucking shit, some people the biggest fucking pussies on the planet.

"This is too gratuitously violent"
"This has too much fan service"
"This has women being used as objects"
"The cleavage is 3 centimeters too low"
"I can't stand looking at naked women because the female body frightens me."
"I'm a closet male rapist pedophile pretending to be a feminist and am virtue signaling."
"I'm an un-fuckable female incel who is bitter and wants to destroy happiness itself"
"This was too confusing because I need everything explained to me, because I'm a mongoloid who doesn't understand simple premises."

It doesn't help I've been on a pulp kick: nudity, sex, ultra-violence, all that primal shit that humans love deep down. Preferably in one thing. Which isn't acceptable in society like it was in the 80s, 90s and early aughts. And holy shit, people are either: dense or complete faggots. Like they cannot handle anything. I swear, its like they've got this mental disease where they don't go, 'it wasn't for me' to "IT MUST BE ELIMINATED FROM THE EARTH". I've just been going over it in my head and I simply can't understand it. The only explanation is these people are mentally weak. They cannot handle things that make them mildly uncomfortable. They must be safe at all times. They're not intelligent, they can't comprehend that they can watch Disney Star Wars, the CW or whatever bland shit they want and leave everyone else alone. They have to be part of this mob because they lack any individual will of their own. Their only personality trait is consumption, and everyone has to consume what they do, because cognitive dissonance kicks in and says 'if people like other things than my thing, than my thing is shit. My thing is not shit so I must destroy'.

Secular Moral Grandstanding in entertainment is one thing that has always eluded me. The religious shit makes sense. There's a book, they're all prudes and its heretical to have human desires. Fine. That's always been around. But these are atheists. What are they fighting for? What morality? You hate religion but what you're doing is no better than a religion. Forcing morality onto a populous has only meant two things: theocratic or despotic. That's it. There's no 'good' that's ever come of it or it ever having worked in recorded human history. So the only conclusion left is that its basically religious without a bible, making it confusing, lawless, self-destructive and filled with self-loathing. Its not hard to imagine why these people are communists. They lack any sort of individuality, want a society where everything is the same to their liking. Of course we know they're in fantasy land, as they'd be the first ones to die. Those who start the revolution typically end up getting killed by it.

And its leading to a derth of daring, creative artists. Art is supposed to have an edge to it. Its supposed to push boundaries. Its supposed to make us uncomfortable sometimes. It supposed to indulge in base emotions as well. Can something be too edgy? Sure. But these days, I'd rather have something that's too edgy than no fucking edge at all. What do we have now? Art that's only safe or 'approved of' in their moral terms. Even pulp entertainment which is functionally designed to be 'this is pulp, it isn't real, have fun'. Part of it is that entertainment has been corporatized and sanitized, designed like gruel to feed everyone but please no one. Profit motive is surely a large part of it. And shutting down anything that counters their gruel which favors this faggot-ridden, sanitized environment.

I miss gratuitous entertainment. Like where Ryan Phillippe gets called a faggot by Sarah Silverman and he just fucking clocks her in the face in 'Way of the Gun'. But HEAVEN FORBID that happened today. VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. A NAUGHTY WORD WAS USED. Grow the fuck up. Its a movie you dimwitted cows.

That leads me to the stupidity section, which also ties in mentally weak. Intelligence is not simply book learning. Its the ability to think critically, logically and distance yourself. Its the ability to empathize with others to know how to get something done. This simply has disappeared into the ether in today's culture. They cannot comprehend that if people see something on TV, read it, play it, whatever, they know its not real. They are like little children, because they're easily influenced, they think everyone else is too. So it must go. It also leads to basic misunderstandings of very simple plots. They're also children because they don't have object permanence.

"There are no strong women in Sci-Fi"
"There are no strong women in comics."
"There are no strong women in anime."

I swear to god this makes me scream. Its all there, in the past no less. Its here now. The majority of the anime I watched while I was bed bound had strong female characters, and the majority wasn't fan service. But it doesn't count to them if the character is attractive or shows cleavage. Same goes for Sci-Fi. Its just incomprehensible.

I understand victims of sexual violence or violence itself to not want to watch these things. That's ok. But that's your prerogative. I'm sorry, but the rest of the world is not and should not move out of the way for you. You have agency. Don't watch. And if you feel 'left out', then I don't know what to tell you. That's not a reason to tone things down. I hate to say it, but it really is up to that person to do it. Its not up to art to compensate, its up to you to choose to watch or don't watch. 99.99% of everything these days has warnings and content inclusions, so there's no excuse. This is a little off topic, but celebrating being a victim has become so common, that the strength of overcoming that adversity has been largely ignored, which is fucking insanity.

At the end of the day, I guess it comes down to sheltered, weak minds with no personalities of their own who just join a group and a mob because their lives are empty. They make up these fake rules that make no sense, are contradictory, have no evidence backing them and curb art for some vague sense of 'smashing the patriarchy' or 'protecting women'. Its Neo-Victorian in a sense that there's this desire to protect women from the rapacious urges of men, but females being hysterical and overly weak and needing protection is absent. Neither is good. But you get this completely fucked up, illogical imbalance where men are rapacious creatures who need their instincts curbed to protect women, yet women themselves are strong and independent, equal to men in every way. If you're strong and independent, you don't need to be protected, but men are rapacious creatures so women need to be protected, but men aren't stronger than women so they're equal and don't need to be protected. That's the line of logic that this goes down. Its a complete paradox. Their only responses when it comes down to it, is 'Nuh-uh' like little children,

To someone with critical thinking skills, this is insanity. But at the end of the day, most of these people are basically children. They are entirely emotional, operate on instinct, think in only terms of black and white, can't think critically, make up illogical rules, believe in paradoxes, don't have object permanence and think that things on the TV are real.

They're mentally and emotionally, children. Which is why they're sheltered, they need adult day care and safe spaces. So in the end, I've figured out the puzzle: They're all fucking rétarded.

Sad thing is, people have been conditioned by the media (both MSM and social sites like Facebook and twitter) that everything and everyone needs to conform to some kind of non-existent standard. It's like the "politically correct" evangelical movement during the last quarter of the 20th century, only instead of preachers rattling on about the evils of Pokemon and Harry Potter; we've got SJWs rattling on about how women are too sexualized and men aren't sexualized enough. Or they're morally obsessed Soccer moms that object to any form of violence, no matter how minor.

Like I get it, but at the same time I don't. I get that people might not like how someone looks or that they might not like a certain piece of media. What I don't get is why they need to make a big deal out of it and force it down everyone else's throats when the average joe really wouldn't give a shit that some busty woman is exposing too much cleavage.

In other words, I blame the internet for this modern movement of easily offended pussies. And especially social media on that regard.

I agree with you definitively, these people are nasty and are some of the worst and most evil human beings I have had the displeasure of meeting.

I wish they would've remained contained in Tumblr. But, sadly, the issue is that big companies are listening to them and changing things trying to appeal to them. The damage they have done to pop culture and fandom via bullying has destroyed many franchises; and regressed years of progress in the arts.

That being said, replying to this thread's topic, I'm curious about what created them. And to be honest, I've yet to find a satisfactory explanation.

They are no doubt some of the worst scum available. Hypocritical, spiteful and reveling in death of people they have political disagreements with. The reason big companies are 'listening' is two fold: Number 1 is the gruel I mentioned. They want mass entertainment sanitized so everyone consumes the same thing. This is difficult with violent, sexual content or as normal people term it 'fun things'. Companies shut these things down because people won't shut the fuck up about them. Fandoms have been destroyed mainly by idiots trying to make gruel. Star Wars and Star Trek. So I wouldn't put the blame entirely on them. Companies are sanitizing everything. See Disney+ removing and censoring their own content. YouTube as well, but YouTube wants to be TV, but it won't ever be.

I've got an answer. Because I was one once. Ages ago.

I used to be that guy that didn't like certain words being said, or fought racism and 'injustice' with a passion. My main focus was classicism and income inequality. Because no country is prosperous without a healthy middle class. I believed that all the social ills, from racism to women's issues, could be cured through equaling out income, giving everyone a chance to make bucks and prevent the rich from keeping the boot over people's necks, making it easier so the poor could rise up through the system. I believed whole heartedly, focusing on the only color that matters in the world, green, would naturally solve social ills. Because the powerless would become powerful through money, because money equals power. To me, that's what was holding progress back. So honestly, I was less about racism and gay rights because I believed focusing on those issues were treating the symptoms, not the disease. I thought by bringing about this change, it would make everyone equal, because this is a capitalist system and money will buy you anything. So, use capitalism to cure social injustice. Probably not a very popular view among my former Marxist friends, but fuck them. I read Marx and the shit he talked about was completely irrelevant in the modern age. Not to mention I saw how my progressive 'friends' saw people in the midwest or appalachia. Which would be the workers, right? So that chipped away at me.

I was already slightly politically adrift, but the real era of all this shit started in 2008. Occupy Wallstreet. A fucking cancer, replicating in the organs of society to this fucking day. I was ecstatic at first, but then I saw what was there. Progressive stacks. Harping about war. Gay rights. Trans Rights. Literally anything BUT Wallstreet. My family was deeply affected by the crisis and I just broke with hate at that point. I fucking hated all of them. They were hypocrites. They were using the crisis for their own petty, selfish ends and complete ignorance. This was the chance to fight against the rich, to take them down, and what the fuck did they do? Drum circles, idiotic clothing and signs that made it impossible to take them seriously. I saw them for what they were, and I guess you could say I basically wanted the progressive movement dead and the true liberal movement revived. We all know how that turned out.

So 2008 was ground zero for this phenomenon. The cancer began consuming moderate liberals and liberals alike. It invaded every organ of the left, and I saw how it replicated. And then I realized why 2008 turned out the way it did, and why this cancer consumed everything.

I mentioned a few times I was a forensic psych major (which my thesis still gives me PTSD). So I had to take some sociology classes as a requirement. You see, when a movement accomplishes its goal, it doesn't simply disband. There are academics who needed these problems to continue to exist. Like a shambling corpse, these movements continued. Because of money. Too many people had staked their living on these movements to just pull up stakes when they succeeded. So they become academics, publishing garbage in journals, preforming garbage experiments and writing garbage books, because they have to keep this shambling corpse alive. You have no problems? Invent some. Why do you think microagressions exist? Because they believe in them? Ha. No. Because they needed problems to solve. That's why they're 'micro', not 'macro'. Nobody was shouting 'nigga' in the streets at black people, no one was getting lynched and simply nobody basically cared about race anymore eventually. So they had to come up with something. And now they're going into subconscious racism and shit because the ship has sailed on microagressions, because its a meme.

The attraction to sociology, cultural and gender studies are that they're very simplistic topics in universities. They're composed of nothing but sophistry and as soon as you learn it, you propagate that sophistry. Then you rapidly find out there's no money in your field. So you start inventing things, writing papers, writing articles. Anything you can to prove your education was worth it. Evidence or truth no longer mattered. As they say, garbage in, garbage out. Because what they were learning and then eventually teaching was sophistry, not actual logic or philosophy, paradoxes, hypocrisy and illogical and contradictory ideas appeared. Since the progressive movement infiltrated the soft sciences, where the standard of evidence is apparently non-existent, everyone else was pushed out of them. Because if they used a standard of evidence, they'd be in trouble.

So now you have these terribly educated students who picked a degree because it was easy and they need to justify their existence, just like their movements need to justify them existing. Because unlike in hard science, where an equation gives the same answer and hard evidence doesn't change, these sort of schools of thought vary so wildly to be sometimes incompatible. Now you have all of these mentally unstable children emerging with such divergent ideas, philosophies and 'rules'. In these sort of courses, there's typically no self reflection, its regurgitation to the professor. So there is no analysis. There's no empathy. There's no logical thought or rhythm to these ideas.

Then you have these uneducated hordes thinking they know something. And then they have their own personal echo chambers: Social Media. Another cancer on society. So these children ran to these platforms and began to repeat the same message. Because liberalism was utterly annihilated by progressivism, most in the liberal sphere had two choices: join or leave. Most joined. So now you have these massive tech giants acquiescing to these mongoloids because they're 'of the same cloth', even though they're not. Eventually, these children suffer extreme cognitive dissonance, since they were never exposed to any counterpoints in their ideology, so any debate becomes an attack.

And because people are people, they go along with this. Eventually, the continual silencing of opposing viewpoints leads to this critical mass or reverberation throughout most of the normal internet. Its highly amplified by a minority of people, giving the perception that its a large group of people, when it isn't. Most people who oppose these ideas have long since given up, moved on to other sites or just don't bother. Because of the divergence in teachings, beliefs and ideology, progressives are doomed to continually fight and consume one another. Which is a side-effect of the lack of evidence based learning. Having no rules naturally leads to chaos. And he who screams the loudest in their world wins.

Because of the series of events I described, you have this critical mass of unopposed viewpoints. Companies are looking to feed us gruel, so sanitizing the internet works in their favor. Companies also are run by old men who trust people who believe this ideology to make entertainment. They are then infested with these people who tell them there's this massive audience for them to grab, just by gauging social media. But because social media has largely become an echo chamber, it is now entirely unreliable to gauge interest or trends in entertainment. So they go along with it and wonder why they continually fail.

Sorry this is super long, but its kind of hard to describe the generation of this complex mass of fucktardation in a small amount of words.

I'm curious about what created them. And to be honest, I've yet to find a satisfactory explanation.
A generation/generations raised by pop culture instead their parents, corporate wokeness, the complete spiritual collapse and lack of moral purpose in the West and Tabula Rasa refusing to fucking die.
That last one especially.
Tabula Rasa is complete and utter bunk.
If there truly were no innate instincts/behaviors in humans, spoiler alert there most certainly are, then playing Grand Theft Auto would turn you into a car jacker and watching porn would make you view women purely as sex objects.
The human mind is not a flash drive that can be programmed by whatever it sees last.
If it were we just wouldn't function as a species.
And yet there are a disturbing amount of idiots in power who think they need keep people from seeing "bad" things otherwise they too will become "bad".
Teach men not to rape anyone?
There are other reasons a lot of entertainment is pussified but I think Tabula Rasa and the idea that without culture being sanitized people will turn into monsters or something is the biggest contributor.

One of the things that's always confused me a little is how much emphasis people feel the need to place on art and media.

Apparently, you can't relate to a protagonist if they aren't exactly like you in some way. Women can't relate to a male character, black people can't relate to a white character, ect.

It is important to inject lessons and morals into our art, it is important to have diversity, it is important to have a character represent something so that we can have some sort of "victory" for women, equality, ect. I remember one clickbait article title talking about how that one deep voiced girl from Bob's Burgers is apparently important to feminism.

Like whenever I read stuff like this, it's like reading about an isolated shut in who's never had any actual friends or real life experiences. There's much more to life than the media you consume and people are not as narrow minded and shallow as you perceive them. Story telling ,whether it be through movies, games, ect. is a fun past time, but Christ. These people VASTLY overestimate how these sorts of things can influence people.

It almost feels like a lot of people nowadays substitute it for actual human interaction.
 
Obviously, this is my opinion/take on the matter/whatever, so take it with a grain of salt.

The grand "Original Sin" is probably the fucking re.tarded assertion "all art must be political", which, to me, sounds more than a bit communistic. It is a bastardization of the original statement "all art is political", which is usually true, just not in the way these assholes want it to be.

Art pieces are ultimately products of their environments, thus, inevitably reflect on some of their circumstances. Take, for example, The Lord of the Rings, which many people interpret as an allegory of World War 2, despite its high fantasy setting. and the fact Tolkien's been working on it since 1917.
Cyberpunk, as a genre, is deeply political with its setting, even if a particular story features no mention of politics. Classic Star Trek is deeply political, and also very progressive. The thing about these examples - and countless others - is they handle politics as a backdrop, it's a natural setting to whatever story the author is trying to tell. No callouts to "those savages in [present year] where [whatever people] have [whatever problem] and they needed liberation from those evil cis-het-white males oppress them so much". Deus Ex and Metal Gear Solid were favourite "gotcha!" retorts back in the days of GooberGrape when neckbeards cried "plz no politcs in gaemz".
Yes, these are very political, however, neither is the CURRENT YEAR type in-your-face politics which is so popular these days.

Then we have Hunters, The Handmaid's Tale, Westworld, all kinds of garbage signaling their politics loudly and proudly. Instead of a wider message, a wider political setting, these all reflect on very specific, day-to-day politics. All conservatives are natzees, Orange Man Bad, all wypipo are rayysist, all men are rapists, whatever dumb fucking pet topic the author has.

General coddling also plays a part in all this, and so does the phenomenom Benjamin A. Boyce described in his "treadmill" allegory. Society is a treadmill, slowly moving forward, and most of these rabid progressives are blind to this, so they're racing forward, calling ordinary people all kinds of names. These movements, like political parties, usually comprise of 10% hardcore ideologues, 40% grifters, and 50% ordinary people who, for some reason need a group to belong to and not be seen as "bad people". Even if a given person isn't really a "pussy who's literally shaking" when watching blaxploitation or whatever, they might feel the need to virtue signal the opposite. Ideologues demand extreme ideological purity, and will purge everyone not pure enough in an effort to keep their "movement" moving.

I never liked the comparison to religeous people because at least religion is mostly constant in what they see as right/wrong. SJWs will literally decide if something is heretical based on the brand name rather than its content (and that's disregarding constant double standards).

My theory is that most of those people don't really know or care about quality. In the end they care more about Twitter likes and joining the conversation rather than the thing they talk about. That makes sense with binge culture, where you cram shows without giving your brain any time to think about the individual quality of each episode. The only important thing is to finish it and look for stuff you can either praise (if it is part of the goodthink camp) or hate((if it is part of the ungoodthink camp)

It's not just being sheltered or culture, though I'm sure they're factors.

There's also just a biological component.

It's the lack of testosterone (or excess estrogens) Sperm quality has been on a decline for decades. Part of that is lack of exercise. Part of that is obesity. Part of that is xeno-estrogens in every plastic, seeping into clothes from detergents, the type of paper we print bills on, the plastic containers we store and prepare food in.

This lack means that men experience higher neuroticism and as a result act more like girls when exposed to violence or other "scary" stimuli. They worry over things. They overthink things. They complain.

But of course the cultural aspect and feminisation of education is also part of it, as is the censorship wave and cancel culture. Both sides of the culture war won some battles, but it is still the same side that holds the cathedral and same side that is the underground resistance.

First, I'm leaving out the SJW and libfem shit because it's obviously shit and we don't have to discuss how shit it is.

Nudity and sex aside, as a normal run-off-the-mill woman, I don't want to be confronted with violent, rapey and misogynistic shit all the time. I don't have to be a SJW libfem or a victim of sexual violence/violence to understand/know that these things are bad or to not want to see them. Violence and rape never add anything to the story and are almost exclusively used as plot devices to hide shitty writing. If you don't like it, don't watch it or make your own, like Dyn suggested. It's your prerogative.

So, in other words, I don't mind modern media and I can live with a few over-the-top SJ TV-shows if it means I'm less confronted by misogyny.

And, if you think there is no violent or rapey stuff out there then you're not looking. There is plenty.

Beats me man, I've always liked my entertainment to have some edge to it.

It's such a bizarre reversal because for decades there used to be a major part of American culture that prided itself on edge, check out this short documentary about Times Square in the 1970s and early 1980s (yes, it's Vice, I know, but it's still pretty good)

NSFW btw


How did America go from that to today's wussified culture? Sometimes I wish we lived in a future like the Heavy Metal segment Harry Canyon, with the grime and grit of the 1970s but with futuristic technology, instead of the wussified Demolition Man style future they're trying to build.

People had it too good for too long.
An average person in a developed country these days faces almost zero real problems in life.
If there are no real problems, people go look for problems and they latch on to whatever they can.
That's why they panic when one corrupt rich asshole gets elected instead of the other rich corrupt asshole or when a corporation says the wrong think in an ad.

I honestly think that now, after the virus, when half of humanity will face at least mild financial problems, a lot of this will stop because people have actual real life problems to deal with.
I also think the political messages in media will stop for the most part because people will want to escape from reality through media now and they'll pay for stuff that doesn't remind them of the real world.

Like, they really should. They have been so complacent and had it so good, they thought putting passive aggressive messaging towards chunks of the audience (in a very weird attempt to get more of an audience...one they likely already had and didn't even need to pander to) without even putting any actual effort into telling a compelling plot or likeable characters, or even like actually testing them with audiences to see if they would actually work. Even when it seemingly did work, it was due to brand recognition and the general audience, who aren't primarily consisting of woke types, just sorta...feel it's not "cool" anymore and lose interest? Sorta like kids who move onto some different fad because the old one is lame now.

I mean no one likes the look of New Warriors (which is the pretty much the poster child for woke storytelling and character creation at this point) and it definitely won't catch on, and while it's Marvel it's a more obscure part of Marvel that most don't know about, and you see it isn't popular and is in fact "uncool" to the GA and those who don't care for comics.

I don't really know if people will see movies like Black Widow or Eternals enmass whenever they come out at this point, but if they don't get that wokeness isn't cool and that a little edginess is actually fine, then in my opinion they are basically cutting a wound into themselves and slowly bleeding out.

Pardon my autism - I'm saying this loud and proud, especially for two/three mediums I notice this SJWBS most in (specifically Cartoons, Comics/Graphics novels, & (while not as bad, it's still pretty bad IMHO) film of all types.).

I know for a FACT cartoons and comics, the former being a medium I love to death...... Ruined by SJWBS fucking outright, for the most part. I don't read comics, but keeping up with the general news on them - it's even worse there (New Warriors, everyone. UGH.).
SJWs don't even like these mediums, especially not cartoons, anyway. I mean, what actually sane person, for example, legit doesn't see Gay Space Rocks or Star Vs Her Own Obnoxiousness as what they are? Cutesy-looking, badly-written, SJW-pandering- unfunny trash that makes little kids shows like Bluey legit appetizing to the wrong demographics (e.g.: not the little tykes something like Bluey is meant for and no one else!).

Yeah, that counter-culture for both comics and cartoons - no, all mediums in general (!)? It can't come soon enough and I welcome it with open arms.

Make America's media great again, indeed. Comics/graphic novels, cartoons, film of all kinds, live action (fuck reality TV, though - that needs to die), books of any kind. It's time for true change on all fronts. That begins with not listening to SJWs and their BS anymore - TRUTH and simple-as-that FACT.

I believe we've stepped backward culturally and artistically. Corporate involvement plays a huge role. Its really a ton of factors. In the 1970s and 1980s, you had to rely on journalists and newspapers to give you what people were doing or making. Entertainment was nowhere near as conglomerate as it is now, so you had all these diverse companies making all sorts of shit, from shlock to experimental to art.

Now you have mass centralization of entertainment with corporations attempting to sanitize nearly everything. The pussification and echo chambers on social media make them believe this is viable.

I think its all a numbers game. It comes down to where people spend their entertainment dollar and how much companies can stand before they move on. Based on a lot of trends, comics especially, people just moved to manga.

A generation/generations raised by pop culture instead their parents, corporate wokeness, the complete spiritual collapse and lack of moral purpose in the West and Tabula Rasa refusing to fucking die.
That last one especially.
Tabula Rasa is complete and utter bunk.
If there truly were no innate instincts/behaviors in humans, spoiler alert there most certainly are, then playing Grand Theft Auto would turn you into a car jacker and watching porn would make you view women purely as sex objects.
The human mind is not a flash drive that can be programmed by whatever it sees last.
If it were we just wouldn't function as a species.
And yet there are a disturbing amount of idiots in power who think they need keep people from seeing "bad" things otherwise they too will become "bad".
Teach men not to rape anyone?
There are other reasons a lot of entertainment is pussified but I think Tabula Rasa and the idea that without culture being sanitized people will turn into monsters or something is the biggest contributor.
Oh my fucking god I completely forgot about tabula rasa. Holy fucking shit. This is one of the things that makes the social sciences a laughing stock among STEM. We 100% have innate instincts and behavioral patterns already etched into our brains. Schizophrenia is etched to explode from birth.

This concept is so pants on head fucking idiotic I don't know how anyone can legitimately trust anyone who thinks this is real. Its on par with flat Earth with how wrong it is.

EDIT:
For anyone who doesn't know, Tabula Rasa is a very popular 'theory' in social science circles, especially the 'X Studies' and Sociology. It is the concept that humans are born with a 'blank slate', as in we have no innate behavioral characteristics, nature does not play any role what-so-ever and it is nurture. So what we see is what shapes our behaviors, instead of what we were born with.

Humans are born with innate instincts and personalities. Babies have different personalities completely independent of how they are raised. Evolution-wise, this makes complete sense. You don't have time to 'observe' as a baby and develop behavioral characteristics. You need some pathways and things pre-programmed in there in order to survive. If you're a dead fish and it takes 2 weeks to develop behavioral patterns, parents would probably abandon you. Not to mention conditions like Autisim, a strict behavioral disorder, is present from birth, disproving Tabula Rasa completely. As is Schizophrenia, which is basically etched into your brain to explode at some point in your life, like a time bomb. Tabula Rasa explains neither. Tabula Rasa is a hold-over from when we didn't know anything about the brain or behavior. Its like an appendix and its burst, infecting fucking everything it touches.

I cannot emphasize enough how damaging, idiotic and wrong Tabula Rasa is. Give me mad at the internet for this, but I want to take a lead pipe to any expert who preaches this dumb bullshit.

People had it too good for too long.
this is easy backed up by the fact that the people who sheik the loudest about social justice are well off and were never told no

What are they fighting for? What morality?
everything is political to them, so they have to fight for something
and real problems are just too much, so better to scream at the non-problem next to you
it's the political equivalent of bored teenagers popping their parents painkillers just to FEEL something instead of.. you know.. doing something with their lives

I swear, its like they've got this mental disease where they don't go, 'it wasn't for me' to "IT MUST BE ELIMINATED FROM THE EARTH".
some people subscribe to an all or nothing morality (i've seen a few religious versions of this too)
if something is one bit bad, then it's all bad
all crimes are equal
and if you can't prove a crime, make something up (IE SONIC SAYS A HOMOPHOBIC WORD GUYS FOR REALS)

This is a little off topic, but celebrating being a victim has become so common, that the strength of overcoming that adversity has been largely ignored, which is fucking insanity.
i blame the "you are special" line
special just means unique, it doesn't mean you're good
eating pasta with a matchstick is special, doesn't mean you should do it
these are people who got praise all their lives from everyone
and now they're in the real world they're pissed that they've got nothing to show for it
no wonder these fucks like writing mary sue characters

I believe we've stepped backward culturally and artistically.
hard disagree
you're not looking in the right places
we've hit the part of the cycle where all the good shit is independent
big movies are crap? don't worry, there's small stuff all over
pop music is shit (of course it is)? bandcamp

we're at the point where we just dig in to the less polished and less professional things
hollywood delenda est
