HURR DURR

No vi el programa de Salvados ese sobre que internet y las redes sociales son el demonio porque no me puede dar más pereza pero, de verdad, me acabo de encontrar con un post de Jordi Évole diciendo que va a estar 2 semanas sin twitter. 2 SEMANAS ENTERAS. OJO CUIDAO JORDI, NO SEAS LOCO. Me recuerda a cuando me flipaba Nirvana y era la más chunga del lugar y dije “pues me borro Tuenti” en un intento nada desesperado de sentirme superior y llamar la atención. ¿Me explicas cómo puedo dar tanto puto asco? (A los 2 días volví, faltaría más. Sólo he visto un cacho de la entrevista que le hace a Bauman diciendo literal “¿tú crees entonces que tener amigos en facebook no es tenerlos en la vida real?” Joder caris, deja de descubrir el fuego por un puto minuto.
Y Bauman que, literalmente dice que él era joven cuando estaba empezando la radio, contándonos que antes todo era mejor, que sólo te podías comunicar con la gente cara a cara y pintando un precioso cuadro que apenas apesta a lo idílico de los recuerdos, en el que en el pasado todo el mundo estaba en permanente contacto con otras personas y que tenían “habilidades sociales que les permitían tener unas conversaciones inteligentes” (TELA) Así que supongo que la idea de soledad, los sentimientos de aislamiento, el narcisismo y la reclusión en uno mismo, son conceptos que nacieron con Twitter. Baia baia, que alguien informe a Camus, por favor. 
Y mi parte favorita, sin duda, los 4589238942893 comentarios en facebook al post de Évole con toda la gente en plan “menos mal que yo leo y no estoy todo el día en fb” “odio a la gente que se pasa todo el día con el móvil y se pierde la Vida Real™” “yo es que me borré fb” “qué tonta es la gente que se pasa el día en Twitter, no como yo, que tengo 20 doctorados y estoy ahora mismo volviendo a leer En busca del tiempo perdido, así para hacer rato durante la digestión” El nivel de ascopena es impresionante. Y la ironía me pone un poco perra también, pero es más [*~~Die Repelús~~* ] lo que siento. 

God, can we not do the ‘leftists against gamers’ thing?

It’d be funny if a large coalition of people (read: malcontented teenagers with little to cling to but their viddy gaems for their identity) on the border of the culture war weren’t already inundated with people ready to scoop ‘em up on the Alt Right, who genuinely have fabricated a strawman (consciously or not) that matches or exceeds the most absurd satire we can pump out. Like, it’s dead-on with the cartoonish portrayals that turn up on Hurr-Durr-Gamerfate-Cringe. m

What I’m getting at here is that, ‘getting’ somebody with that level of parodic trolling isn’t a win, because these guys’ view of the left consists only of the cringiest 'real’ examples of “SJWs”. And listening to this shit and doomsaying from the Alt-Right lead to their adoption of the shitty, vapid ideology of 'lol triggered’, hentai, and dank memes.’

They’re not rekt when they fall into your trap and you play up the satire, they’re gonna genuinely believe you, and walk away going 'OH GOD THEY’RE REAL, SARGON WAS RIGHT’, because THEY’RE DUMB KIDS.

That’s not funny, that’s scary.

Why am I still seeing so many people use phrases like “hurr durr” or “herp derp” to indicate some level of silliness or stupidity?

These are ableist terms that essentially originated on 4chan to insult, mock, and harass developmentally disabled people, particularly autistics and folks with Downs Syndrome and similar.

The entire “joke” is ableist in its content. The “joke” is that the speaker is making sounds that are supposed to sound silly and unintelligent. The fact that the speaker sees these sounds as signs of stupidity is ableist because many disabled people make those sounds, regardless of individual intelligence level. (If you can even agree on what to measure as signs of “intelligence” but I digress.)

Please stop writing posts with these terms. Please stop reblogging posts with those terms without criticism. I’m getting so tired of seeing supposed activists put these phrases on their blogs. It’s painful every time I see it.

Let’s talk about the way they’re smiling at each other

Let’s talk about her hand on his cheek

Let’s talk about the way Lucas tilts his chin up when Maya leans in to kiss him.

Let’s talk about how he closes his eyes, ready to enjoy the moment

I mean, let’s just talk about this beautiful scene

(It was pretty hot too right!)

Someone talking crap about you? Eat them. Someone’s spewing hateful things and pretending it’s “just a joke bro! a prank dude”? Roast them and eat them. Someone abuses you? Cool then slowly to a tender medium-rare, then eat them (A1 sauce optional).


((Don’t actually eat people but if someone is abusing you PLEASE contact someone and get out. You’re a lovely, lovely being, and you deserve happiness.)) -Mod K
