Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16. Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
there have been some studies showing benefits in circumstances (granted mostly applicable to developing countries with poor healthcare). i'm not like pro circumcision or anything, it is usually pointless imo. but i do think it's a disservice to compare it to fgm. circumcision might be an unnecessary risk for the sake of religion or aesthetic but the complications are rarer and it's nowhere near as horrific and damaging as fgm.
this is really showing peoples true colours — anyone defending shane and jafar is fucking trash, at least it's good to know who's a pedo apologist and racist and doesn't deserve any support either. idc if they're "friends" if my friend did anything even half this disgusting they would not be my friend anymore.
ugh yes. it's so gross and ignorant to use the ussr as an aesthetic. i've literally seen someone hanging a ussr flag in their room as decor. socialism/communism as philosophy is one thing and the ussr is another. im saying ussr specifically bc my parents grew up in the soviet union, and while there were good parts and good experiences, it was not a utopia to be glamourized. people forget that stalin killed just as many if not more people than hitler. there was genocide, forced labour, ethnic cleansing/deportation, homophobia, etc. not some cute gay uwu soft commie aesthetic.
i think having racial preferences for dating is fine but refusing people for things out of their control (including stuff like height) is petty and shallow. also its funny that people who think diversity is dumb and pandering and stuff are the ones who are the most butthurt about it, like if you don't care about representation and character's a race/sexuality/etc doesn't matter why do they get so offended when a character is not white/straight/etc.???
yeah, she should have taken those vids down long ago, because she's been making money off them this whole time. aside from what van ghostly said, that nobody is owed forgiveness. i think a lot of people are also upset that she's still friends with shane dawson and j*. supporting shitty people does make her complicit in their shittiness. i heard she was deleting comments calling her out abt it.
yeah i hate the attitude of nitpicking movies (ie cinemasins). it's so exhaustingly pedantic and negative. it's fair to criticize issues in movies but some people take it stupidly far. i can't imagine sitting down to watch a movie with the intention of nitpicking realism and trivial plotholes and shit rather than... i don't know, trying to enjoy it?
i feel like i might have said this or smth similar before but "terfs" are scapegoats and radical feminism is severely misunderstood i was in the radfem tumblr community at one point, i've since drifted away because don't agree with all of the philosophy/attitudes but my beliefs also don't entirely align with lib/pop feminism either. it's annoying to feel like whatever i say i'm gonna get crucified by one side or the other because of this weird attitude where you have to pick a side and agree with every single thing and live in an echo chamber. like man what if we... drew from a variety of sources in order to form our own opinions??? can you imagine lol
