  1. It's interesting how some people manage to find a way to blame the teenagers (actually, children) for being with adults and not the actual adults who should have the sight and mind to know it's wrong. A teenager could throw themselves at you, that doesn't mean you're not still 100% to blame as an adult who can say "no"; these rockstars weren't forced to prey on the young with a gun to head.
  2. Funny or offensive? *NSFW*

    How very "old man yells at clouds".
  3. Funny or offensive? *NSFW*

    Comedy that relies on punching down is really the lowest and least intelligent type of comedy imo. Ace Ventura was always cringeworthy to me because Carrey's style is just so OTT in general though.
  4. GNR Videos Now in 1080p

    You can rip 1080p versions of (Youtube 480p) music videos from VEVO's official website.

    I had to mute the preacher. He just repeated himself for what seemed like 5 minutes going on about 'God is love' in slightly different ways each time, then what seemed like another 10 minutes... it was just too much. Church services should be quick and concise, or maybe I'm just too British for the American loudness and what seemed to be an effort to make himself the spectacle. Meghan looked gorgeous, as did her mum.
  6. This thread title is so dramatic and a complete overreaction. What part of removing statues/street names etc of offensive figures is erasing history? If statues and street names of people who fought for the enslavement of others are the only way to educate then you've got a bigger problem than them being taken down. No one wants to erase the ugly aspects of history but statues/having a street named after you are honours, and honours need not be given to people like that.
  7. I mean there's clearly more to it, but I was just making the general point.
  8. It terms of gun violence and violence in general, I think it's important to understand in terms of improving the socialisation and societal pressures centred around men and violence. Acknowledging there's a problem is the first step, the rest come with tackling the issue.
  9. I feel like gender is something people don't want to address too much in these situations... there is a very obvious problem in regards to men and their relationship with violence.
  10. Once politicians get that NRA funding out of their pockets, maybe even the slightest effort could be made. The victims are the many killed in mass-shootings, not your rights according to an outdated 2nd amendment.
  11. How would him being of Spanish-descent mean he wouldn't be part of a white supremacy group?
  12. This thread was definitely a vile read.
  13. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I think there's some responsibility in the message your art promotes though. I believe in freedom of speech, but it must also be examined how certain speech or art does ultimately lead to physical harm. Eminem may not be solely responsible, but he did/does contribute to a culture or societal norm that functions against victims by treating very serious topic as jokes (and without nuance to those 'jokes'). This is what I meant by the victims not being the punchline.
