I've had this argument a lot over the years but.

What you think you'd do in a situations vs what you'd actually do in a situation are two vastly different things. If you haven't been in the exact situation before with 90% similar circumstances, you haven't a clue how you'd react.

Most people tend to view the world in the lens of the former rather than the latter.

Constant black and white thinking… two very different things can be true at once. A serial killer who was abused was ONCE A VICTIM of that abuse. At the same time they were also a pos. Holding two conflicting beliefs is not gonna crack your brain open. It’s healthy.

u/1of9Heathens Sep 25 '22

Yeah that’s how I feel about police.

I think that the police as an institution are largely corrupt, and things like laws around their testimony, civil asset forfeiture, over policing of black and brown neighborhoods, the obliteration of the fourth amendment, and qualified immunity are all massive issues that need to be addressed. I’m an unapologetic proponent of the defund the police movement.

I also think that on an individual level, many officers have decent or good intentions that do revolve around protecting their community, even if most of them go about that in a way I think is flawed or that I wouldn’t approve of.

On Reddit though, depending on the subreddit, I’m either a bootlicker or someone who wants cops dead when I share those sentiments together. It’s frustrating.

Days later news came out that the director had sexually harrassed the kid's sister and had multiple investigations going on due to improper behavior.

Talent is kind of a useless metric, though. Kanye is successful because people like his music. Even if someone invented a “talent reader” which could measure some real-world equivalent to midichlorians, it’d be about as useless as an IQ test — especially to someone who’s already successful!

Also it’s funny how everyone always thinks that the artists they like are talented, and the artists they don’t like are untalented. What an incredible coincidence that this nebulous “talent” matches your tastes in particular.

I love having a house, sorry "single family zoning," and not renting an apartment in an apartment complex.

u/Number127 Sep 25 '22

Do people really hate the idea of houses though, or do they just think that there's not enough alternatives? The opinions I see here are mostly that people wish high-density housing was available for people who want it, in order to lower housing costs and make public transportation more effective, not that they want single-family homes to not exist.

Owning a car and being able to drive it wherever and whenever I want is an incredibly liberating feeling that I would not trade for even the most robust public transportation systems.

u/HD800S Sep 25 '22

I don’t think a personal preference for driving is generally a hated opinion. Even on the radical /r/fuckcars, self-proclaimed car enthusiasts get upvoted regularly.

What people generally hate is the idea that all of our transportation infrastructure should revolve around cars, restricting the freedom to travel via other means. The majority of Dutch households own cars and nobody takes issue with this, because driving is only one of many options to get around there—not a mandatory prequisite for participation in society.

11

u/grahamster00 Sep 25 '22

because driving is only one of many options to get around there

Yeah, but Denmark is half the size of Maine. It makes sense to have lots of public transportation there. Consider how money the Dutch government puts into maintaining their public transportation every year. Now understand the bare minimum amount, the absolute most conservative value you could reasonably estimate it to be similar to Denmark, is 2,375 times that value for Americas.

I don’t think any reasonable person would want public transportation to cover vast swaths of largely rural American land. But most Americans live in metropolitan regions. Investing in public transit within, and connecting, cities would generate substantial economic activity. China is about the same size as the US, poorer, yet they have an extensive high speed rail network. The Los Angeles metropolitan region is the most densely populated in the country, yet its public transit is abysmal. While the upfront cost would be hefty, I think would ultimately pay off.

Would you mind explaining? Im not on many sides of reddit so im curious why its so terrible in your opinion. I do believe you have a good reason tho

u/WET_LASAGNA_ Sep 24 '22

It’s cuz Reddit is such a mob mentality app like praising Fanny devito or hating emojis like it’s just so toxic if you don’t agree with every single person as they preach not being a snowflake. It’s just a place for weird unfunny people to congregate and circlejerk each other into thinking they are cool. That’s like my main reason and it’s def not all sides of Reddit just the meme subs most people are nice but the servers are horrible and some people on here are just plain weird lol

u/SureWhyNot5182 Sep 25 '22

100% agree with the mob mentality. If it's downvoted even once, even if they're in the right, then suddenly everybody is out to murder them.

Victim blaming is sometimes a good thing. It doesn’t mean that the perpetrator should face any fewer consequences, but sometimes common sense is all it takes to prevent becoming a victim

31

u/AussieGal2066 Sep 24 '22

Agree victim responsibility is a good thing, but not blaming. As a woman I take responsibility for not putting myself in a situation where the risk of harm is greater. But I should not be blamed for the actions of a perpetrator... It send the wrong message to future perpetrators.

16

u/Ghast-light Sep 24 '22

The problem as I see it is how to define victim blaming. You seem to think of it as a situation where the perpetrator’s actions are diminished or excused because of the victim’s actions. I agree that’s wrong.

But “victim blaming” has come to mean “pointing out that in any way, no matter how small, that a victim’s choices led to them being victimized even though the perpetrator’s responsibility and consequences are unchanged”

10

u/AussieGal2066 Sep 25 '22

I completely agree with you, a victims choices have consequences. We should educate all about making good choices, using examples of victims as anonymous case studies and pointing out where better choices could have led to different outcomes, sure no problem with that. It just becomes murky when 'victim blaming' is used to opress the rights of a group. Is it sensible for me to walk alone down a dark street at night, no. Should I have the right to walk down a dark street at night without being victimised, yes. To say 'she took a risk walking there' is accurate, but it takes the emphasis away from ' she should be able to walk there without risk'.

I think smoking should be illegal.

u/M4dMil0 Sep 25 '22

I don't get it why so many people still smoke in 2022. It's obvious they are addicted but c'mon. They places where it's still allowed are reducing and it's so bad for just your health. I don't find smoking normal. People who take a small break to even smoke and then pick up their job like it's normal..

I freaking hate it that so many smokers just throw their sigarettes on the street.. it's just antisocial.

I don’t give a shit if someone wants to listen to blue tooth speakers on a hike. It’s just not an issue for me, they hike on by and I never see or hear them again. Headphones get sweaty and gross and stop working when you sweat enough. A small speaker at a reasonable volume isn’t anything to get cranky about.

Not all “conservatives” are stupid, ignorant, fundie, hyper-capitalist knuckledraggers. Some people have different underline assumptions about human nature and society that inform their worldview. We would make a lot of societal progress if we could put aside assumptions and have some open discourse about where things are headed and how to address it. (This isn’t just relevant to US politics, but the wider western world.) I think we’ve all made assumptions about what the “other” thinks and are talking past one another. I hope we can unify productively (because the people in power won’t help us-we must help eachother.)

11

u/TGwanian Sep 25 '22

Well said. I’m liberal leaning myself, but I can’t count how many “how to make American more unified” posts I’ve read where the majority of comments are “get rid of the conservatives” or “get the conservatives to give up on all of their beliefs.”

Most things are not absolute. There’s always multiple sides to every narrative and opinion and holding conflicting beliefs is not only okay, but healthy.

Also, I don’t like the habit of downvoting someone without debating them, unless what they are saying is tripe.

If you have a penis, and only have sex with other penis people, you're gay. If you have a vagina, and only have sex with other vagina people, you're a lesbian. If you are happy to have sex with anybody regardless of genitalia, you're bi, and probably very popular. If you only have sex with people whose genitalia is different from yours, you're straight. If you have a penis, and only have sex with vagina people, you are not in any way shape or form a lesbian.

u/E-2k7-Quiz Sep 25 '22

Agree all the same. If gun ownership was a common thing in Ukraine (even illegal btw), it would be much harder for russians to sustain their occupation over territories, since anyone could just shoot one of them at night or something, and how do you find those, especially considering it is not that hard to hide a gun. Also, when you know person you want to attack may also have a gun, you will consider not doing it. Criminals have illegal guns anyway. I'm from Kyiv btw.

1). I don’t think “work from home” is good as a long term solution. I thinks it isolates employees too much and reduces necessary casual communication. Also, if your job can be done 100% out of office, prepare to have your position outsourced to cheaper workforce.

2) Not everything that comes out of China is bad or a lie and people are sticking their head in the sand when they deny statistics that show the positives things that have happened in China (for example their massive output of scientific research).

I am circumcised, since birth, and when I tell them it doesn’t bother me because I’ve never known anything different they lose their fucking minds. They freak out at me like I am evil for having a circumcision and being indifferent to it. Apparently the response they want from me is to cry and be depressed like I am permanently damaged for life.

Seconded. I’m actually super interested in religion as an outsider. I could never see myself devoting my belief to a specific god (I’m very much a “prove it” person at heart), but I like the idea of divinity. I also like the positive effects it has on the human psyche and would honestly be down for more relatable religious representation in media. There are some bad eggs, sure, but there are many undeniable upsides.

That the Left’s(Reddit’s) hatred of the right; their utter disdain, assumption that they’re racist assholes contributed to Trump’s rise. Their total disdain of the rural communities, moderates, and non-Trump conservatives because they’re objectively stupid and bad people if they’re not super liberal…

The direct result of this WAS the Trump victory and the trash GOP we see today. You tell people long enough that they’re trash, they’re garbage, they don’t deserve to have an opinion, they’re shit because they’re white… well Trump came along and wasn’t going to tow that line
