I thought the whole privilege olympics thing was a bit of a hyperbole from people on the sidelines having a giggle.

Apparently not.

Quote
I think you misunderstood the example.
Comparing two persons is enough, because if A > B and B > C, then A > C. If you can compare two, you can sort any number of persons by their privilege.

As for number of traits, having even MORE traits, makes ladder even LESS feasible, with core problem, again, remaining that privilege is not quantifiable.

To paint with a broad brush, a lot of the dudes involved with these blogs and such are super insecure. So when they accrue enough power/attention, their fragile egos can’t manage it. And maybe it comes with the territory of following pop culture media rooted in adolescence. I don’t know.

Nah, you hit on a lot of it in a lot less sentences than whatever I barfed up a few posts earlier.

That's basically 80-90% of it, really.

Straight Black Men Are the White People of Black People

#insularity

Do I have privileges as a black man, over black women? No doubt. Can't deny it. That's the society we live in. Black women have it bad. But black women are also graduating from high school and college at higher rates than black men. They're also starting businesses at much higher rates than black men. They're the victim of fewer violent crimes than black men. They're less likely to be the victim of police brutality. I could go on and on. But I have no interest in playing Olympics of Oppression here. My point is that black men have been under direct assault for hundreds of years in this country. The benefits of black male privileges over black women play out larger in some areas, but overall? We're still in a ditch, and the idea that we are the biggest threat or obstacle to black women strikes me as a ludicrous assertion that pits two sets of people on a sinking boat against each other. Fuckouttahere.

I'd also point out this is a conversation that largely exists on the internet (specifically the black hole of tumblr/twitter), and the arguments being made just so happen to mirror those used by white racists against blacks. Raising the spectre of the violent, aggressive black man who is a threat to society.

Tbh I don't know enough about it to even opine on whether it's a good or bad decision, but you have people in that thread talking about how Madrid should "crush them economically" or shit like that. Just where does that animosity come from?

beats me. wafflecakes is a moron saying too many moronic things.

We're talking of a region that:

voted for a better pact called "estatut" only to be taken down by the remnants of our past dictatorship.
tried to do stuff like co-paying for medicine because some pharmacies had been without payment for 6 months due to spain not actually giving the money back (our actual money plus the solidarity deductions). Got outlawed by the central gov.
tried to get a better pact but just got laughed at by the central gov.
they also deemed a law we pushed against eviction to shift the balance towards the people and they somehow deemed it unconstitutional, despite the fact we saved corrupt banks with our tax money.


We're the biggest contributor to Spain no matter what the numbers say. Madrid is essentially contributing by handing better deals that no region can match. Somehow, Catalonia still manages to get many. And that happens because we're the underdog who keeps punching up.


However, my reason for independence is essentially this one:

Central goverment is touching the retirement and health money (seguridad social) to pay other stuff, and selling debt at a very dangerous rate. In about 10 years it will essentially collapse because they hollowed the pillars of the economy. Catalunya doesn't want that, we want to shape our future. And the fun thing is that our region would become so great with that surplus of money that we'd essentially have better social politics and much better infrastructure, which would as a side effect create an exponential growth. Then the other communities would be like: wtf, maybe we should do that too. And Madrid, which is actually a very poor region in its own merits would be essentially fucked.

Example: There's this electricity company called endesa. Since politicians have interests and vice-versa, the promotion of solar energy has been halted to a stop. Now imagine Andalucia went independent. They'd have control over those issues and would be able to be essentially the biggest EU solar park, thanks to having such a sun-driven region. Yeah, politicians could be corrupt and still do it, but by changing them in Andalucia, you'd fix the issue. You can't overpower in votes when you're just a region.

If you think about independence as a way to have better control of the needs of the region, playing it's strengths and weaknesses... it just makes a lot of sense. That, or having a federal type of goverment.

I think you could rephrase that question, "Why do bad get support when their constitutional rights are violated but good people get finger wags when they don't tip?"

By constitutional rights I mean facing violence for "peacefully" protesting. Actually, if someone mugs you on the street is that a constitutional violation or is it a crime?

welll if someone mugs you you're essentially not undefeated after 1000 fights and because of that you're not a good fit for GAF. I believe that's way more important than an hypothetical constitutional rights violation honestly  :doge

This is where they have all the cameras on cranes and all the tech stuff. That side is ALWAYS like this, this way they can have shit moving around without hiding  the views of people sitting there, or hitting them

That’s pretty hilarious, but simultaneously if we’re going to start banning people for being dismissive as a result of a failed purity test, there’s gonna be many casualties.

then Beseda adds to that

Quote from: Beseda
We often ban people for shit posting in threads with single word dismissive posts. The user in question was fully aware of this, given they'd had similar bans in the past.


Also, next time you'd like to comment on moderation, send a PM to a mod, rather than violating the ToS by discussing it in a thread.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=249508674#post249508674


Remember when, in 2010, the mods openly talked about how the TOS didn't matter and they just banned people who were being dicks?  And now GAF is all about Law and Order and the TOS?



The TOS should just read, Expose mod hypocrisy = Ban.

Has the GAF population really changed in the last few years, or have I just grown tired of OT?  I lurked GAF for years and finally made an account because I wanted to participate in OT.  However, it seems like as soon as I did that the tone of the forum changed.  This new "Don't question if a thread is stupid or not" policy seems like icing on the cake and the number of retarded threads seemed to grow exponentially.

I'm not sure if it's me being an old man yelling at clouds or if it really has changed.

thats weird even by gaf standards

Can't really blame the mods though because as I pointed earlier GAF "unconditional support" quickly veers in bitter and vicious assumptions and turns into dogpiling the absent party. Nothing of help to OP (who took the advice and bailed, sensibly) or anyone really. I mean last post before lock is :

OP, there is another guy.

She might convince you there is not, you might be convinced there is not, but there is.

It is very important you talk about it now.

Because right now she lives in a world of secrecy you are not a part of.

And that makes it easier for her. Because she has been there for a while.
Without you.

You need to be in the same place to actually talk.

Get her to tell you the truth.


Not saying it will fix anything, but it will make the next months easier to take.
