Lucien’s Unpopular Opinion: Boogie2988’s Ideas About Gradual Social Change are Dumb

I was recently made aware of the YouTuber Boogie2988 talking about how the Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states is wrong because, as he see it, the change that happens should be a gradual thing.  I couldn’t possibly think that that is more wrong.  This idea that we should be waiting 20 years of 10 years to get what the majority ALREADY think should have been done is just asinine.  That’s the whole reason we got here.  The majority of people were on the side of legalizing gay marriage.  It’s how the issue got brought before the Supreme Court in the first place.

The issue with gay marriage is being mirrored, interestingly enough, with marijuana.  More and more states are legalizing, and as more states do, the government is seeing how much money there is to be made.  It’s insane.  The amount of green that is changing hands, both smoking and financially, is staggering.  As the government sees the tide of public opinion turning, this issue will be next.  But Boogie doesn’t see things that way.  Why?  Because there is backlash against it.  Well so fucking what, Boogie?  Yeah, when the law of the land changes, you have assholes who resent that.

It’s been that way with ending Jim Crow.  It was that way with ending slavery in this country.  Hell, we had a Civil War over that.  It was that way when we gave women the rights over their own bodies.  A battle that has not stopped to this day!  Are you saying that women who want to get an abortion should have to have their right to do so in all 50 states delayed by 10 or 20 years so that people are more open to it?  No, Boogie!  Sometimes, when the public is fucking dumb (as the public so often is), you need the rational voices to tell them “no!  You don’t get to enforce your bigotry over them!  You have to get with the fucking times, you backwards morons!”  I am not unaware of the fact that LGBT people potentially being assaulted or killed because of those people is sad.  But that’s the cost of progress, Boogie.  I have a great line to close this out with about that, but we’ll get there when we get there.

After the backlash that was pretty ugly, he came out to clarify his statements, and kind of double-down on them.  He said that he doesn’t think that “oppressed people should have to wait to turn the hearts and minds of their oppressors, even if they are killed in the process” and that he wishes that people could see the cause they die for instead of having to die for it.

Boogie, I have a friend who is in the Navy.  She’s dear to my heart, and it would sadden me more than you will know if she died.  But here’s the thing about anytime someone takes up a gun or joins the service to a nation or a cause – there is a chance that you will give your life for that and die for nothing.  Your nation might fail or fall.  Your cause might be destroyed and everyone who believed in it erased from history.  That’s the risk you take by choosing to fight for an idea or a nation you believe is worth fighting for.  It’s a risk that those who truly value that are willing to take.  Now here you are, standing in judgment of those people, saying that they shouldn’t die for a cause but instead be alive because you think so.

It’s interesting that earlier you brought up Nazis.  Let’s take a look at that.  Not the modern incarnation of the word that has lost ALL meaning thanks to its rampant misuse for everyone who doesn’t agree with the SJW mindset being called such.  Let’s look at the actual people in the regime of Nazi Germany.  You say not to negotiate with them on their terms.  Well, in a way, that’s what happened.  The Allies realized that we couldn’t negotiate with the Nazi regime, so we had to go to war with them.  How many British, French, African, and American men died, never seeing that cause come to fruition?  Does that invalidate what they fought for?  By your own statement, that seems to be what you think.  And that’s kind of insulting.

Not only that, but there are plenty of men who served in the military in Nazi Germany who didn’t agree with the beliefs of the nation, but had no choice but to serve (lest them and their families be disappeared).  They fought as hard as they could for a cause that wasn’t just, but for which they had no choice in the matter.  It was fight or have them and their loved ones be killed.  When Nazi Germany was defeated, rightfully, those who died for their cause died for nothing.  No matter how much they were not in favor of the regime and their ideas, those people died for nothing.  Or those who fought for Soviet Union in Afghanistan and died.  Or those who fought in Vietnam.  After all, we lost that war.  One could make the argument that they died for nothing.

The willingness to fight for what you believe in and be willing to give your life for that cause because you believe it to be just is now something to be saddening in your eyes.  That is so insulting to me.  You even say that you think its illogical to die for something rather than “be patient and wait for it.”  Oh really?  Tell that to the black men and women who couldn’t vote because of racist southern literacy tests.  Tell that to women who died in back-alley abortions because it was illegal so it was underground.  There are those who die waiting for the right thing to be done, while people like you say to wait.

During the final years before Roe v Wade, when more and more doctors were risking their reputations, careers, and freedom to give women safe abortions, there were those who made the argument that these people are helping keep it illegal because not enough people are dying.  If there was a higher body count, maybe that would tip the issue.  Thankfully, it didn’t come to that.  Because the Supreme Court interpreted our Constitution to say that women have the rights over their bodies, so abortion should be legal.  If those people had taken your advice, we wouldn’t have waited 10 years or 20 years.  We’d still be waiting now!  Because to this day, the argument has not stopped.  To this day, we still have ignorant pieces of shit in the religious-right telling women what to do with their bodies.  Abortion doctors get murdered to this day.  How long should we keep waiting for this issue?

I don’t think you’re a bad guy.  It seems like your heart’s in the right place, but overall, I think your opinion is asinine and ignorant of history.  But as always, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.  I guarantee that plenty of people thought like you through all of the issues I raised in refutation, and each and every one of them is wrong.

The Logan Paul Suicide Forest Video is Fake

Since I’m a lonely loser who lives in a pretty decent apartment by myself, I live on the Internet.  It’s the life I lead.  It sucks, trust me.  But part of the thing about this fact is that I am constantly seeing the latest things that people are calling drama about.  Today it is a video that some YouTube vlogger that I had never heard of until today put up (and as of the writing of this post removed) where he is in the suicide forest of Japan and sees a dead body hanging from a tree.  Which he subsequently goes over to and gets really close to.  The video was mirrored everywhere, and I did actually see this, and…I think it’s fake.  My gut instinct is telling me that this idiot did this specifically for shock value and there isn’t an actual dead person there.

Let me say that I could be 100% wrong.  This is just my gut reaction, but as stupid and frustrating as that is, everything about the way this guy and his flunkies act and the way they are so unbelievably insensitive around a dead person leads me to believe that it’s all a big performance.  Because even if Logan Paul himself is a complete sociopath, there’s no way all his little entourage is that void of empathy.  As a person who has seen dead bodies and even seen someone after they killed themselves (it was a family member, and that’s all I’m going to say about that), seeing something like that would do things to you.  I got to see a person after they blew their head off with a shotgun.  The sight of that body left me feeling a whole bunch of really negative things.

Why would he do this?  Well, speaking as someone who lives on the Internet and sees all the stunts people pull, it’s because my PR education has informed me that there truly is no bad press.  All Logan Paul had to do was put this video up, and then subsequently take it down and post an apology, and his name is everywhere and there is controversy and he is getting more views than ever before.  Maybe this guy felt that his view count was getting a little low lately (he just bought a $6 million house.  I don’t get how that could be possible) or just that he wanted to push the envelope, but this feels like performance art to me.  Terrible, terrible performance art.

So that’s why this isn’t a Bad PR post.  Because in reality this isn’t bad PR.  If my assertion is correct, then this was a calculated move by this man to get a shit-ton of views and gets his name out there.  These kinds of stunts work, all the time.  In a world where you have to stay relevant in order to stay financially solvent on YouTube, especially now, this sort of trick pays back in spades.

It’s not just in how he acts, it’s in what he says.  This is a first for him?  A lot of things are going through his mind?  Nope, I call bullshit.  Complete bullshit.  This guy even puts sad fucking music over it.  This reminds me of when Onision did that video where he recorded a woman he was with having a seizure and put sad music over it.  That’s what this feels like.  Although, everyone knows that Onision is a complete sociopath.  And if the whole deal about him getting teenage girls to send underwear pics to him, maybe a bit of a pedo, but that’s old news.

Believe what you will, but I call bullshit.  This isn’t bad PR.  It’s brilliant PR.  It’s calculated, professional controversy shit-spinning.  Kinda wanna admire Logan Paul.  What a brilliant way to stay relevant.  And that’s my thoughts on the latest Internet drama.  I only felt compelled to talk about this because if it is on the level, then Logan Paul is just as much of a sick piece of shit as Onision.  But I am almost certain that it’s not.  It just feels staged.  The laughter then going into the fakest fake crying at the end just pegs it.  This is all just performance art.

That being said, if this is real, I feel so bad for the family of that person.  Suicide is a very terrible thing, and as someone who deals with suicidal thoughts on a daily basis, anyone thinking about it should reach out to someone.  You aren’t alone.

Jordan Peterson and the Dirge of YouTube

It seems that YouTube, and Google by extension, has decided that rather than let what the people who made the site big in the first place want to watch, they are going to decide for us.  Yes indeed, they are going to tell us what is okay to watch, because after all, we aren’t adults who can make up our own fucking minds about things.  We are stupid children who have to have this website tell us what is appropriate to watch.  They said that to Jordan Peterson today.

Without any warning and without giving a single reason, they decided to suspend his YouTube account.  When he tried to go to his GMail account to ask what was going on, that was suspended too.  Upon seeing this, he appealed the suspension.  It was denied.  No reason given for that, either.  Peterson did get all of his accounts back.  How?  Because he is a popular person.  After he put the heat on YouTube with social media posts and writing articles, they reinstated him.  Had they not, this post would be another Bad PR post, because they would have started a garbage fire.  But Peterson was popular.  And the new bad day is just starting.

See, YouTube has released a new press release saying what they are going to do with YouTube channels that make controversial content in the future.  It will be done to videos that haven’t violated YouTube’s policies in any way.  That’s right, someone in a position of power is going to basically let us know that the thing we wanted to watch is bad.  Why?  Because YouTube said so!  They will immediately be unable to monetize their videos.  They will never be in anyone’s Recommended videos section.  They will also have features like comments, likes, and suggested videos removed.  It is being called the “Limited State.”  What’s more, all of this is going to happen without a SINGLE person being involved.  An AI program will do this for YouTube.  In essence, YouTube has told a computer what is appropriate for people, and now that computer is going to go out there and do everything they can to purge this content without openly deleting it.

YouTube has also said that this is just the beginning.  More and more types of videos are going to be added to their self-proclaimed blacklist in the months ahead.  They’ve promised that.

I remember the good old days of YouTube.  When it was the wild west.  Sure, you had to slog through a massive ocean of “YouTube stank,” as Jello Apocalypse put it, but you could find whatever you wanted to watch.  It was a golden age where people were able to make a stable living, peddling their views to the marketplace of ideas.  Don’t like that person’s views?  Well, you can bet that there is someone who is preaching to your choir that you can go see.  Or you can start your own channel to preach about how My Little Pony now caters to the alt-right.  No joke, there was an article where SJWs say that.  It’s amazing.  Whatever your point of view, it was open to make money off of and be in that marketplace for all to see.

But those days are gone.  Now we live in the days where the Wall Street Journal could run a hit-piece a PewDiePie and how a racist video has ads from Coca-Cola and some fashion brand all within two refreshes, which I contend is bullshit.  If it did happen, then that is the biggest jackpot of all time.  Especially since YouTube is very good about targeting ads to your demographic.  A museum in my state is in most of my ads that I see, unless it’s gamer content I watch. YouTube knows what’s-what.  And since advertisers are the biggest pussies in the world and are afraid that someone may see a video saying that Islam is bullshit with an ad from their company, now YouTube has decided to basically castrate their own service.  Why?  Because if someone’s offended, that makes them look bad!

No, YouTube, this makes you look bad.  You’ve basically decided to be the teacher who punishes the entire goddamn class for the actions of one dumbfuck kid.  That’s the meat and potatoes of this entire thing.  And rather than nut up and have a person involved in ANY of this bullshit, you said, “eh, fuck it!  Let’s just let some AI do the job!  Because that TOTALLY hasn’t backfired on us already.”  Anyone remember when YouTube had a bot mass-flagging videos with content ID matches?  It was a huge to-do a few years back, when a ton of film critics basically lost all their revenue because of the fact that the YouTube bot saw a clip from a movie in that video.  What’s more, just like with Peterson, there was NO communication from YouTube about any of this.  I swear, the more I see that company not talk to people who support it, the more I wonder if the inside of that place is like Mundus’ bank in DmC: Devil May Cry (I like that game, so fucking sue me).  It wouldn’t shock me.

I just know that this “limited state” bullshit is going to extend to anti-SJW content.  I just know it.  Because after all, Google has openly supported these kinds of people.  So podcasts like The Drunken Peasants?  Am I going to have hunt them down to see their stuff?  If they are completely unable to monetize any of their stuff at all, or have Super Chats for when they are live, then their income is effectively destroyed.  So they’re gone.  So many of the YouTubers that I watch and love will be crushed by this, all because YouTube and by extension Google are too pussy to tell the advertisers to nut up and deal with the fact that the video with Roosh V may have their products advertised on it.  I’m sure they’ll survive.

This is how YouTube dies.  If they go the distance with this, then effectively they will be destroyed.  And I guarantee, once the breeze changes, some young thing will come out there to capitalize on it.  “Do you wanna watch something other than cat videos?  Come to our site!”  I am not going to keep watching YouTube if the content I want to see is buried behind their Chinese wall.  I’m just not.  If YouTube wants to turn into TV, I’ll just go and watch Netflix.  Don’t have to wade through as much crap there.

Top 10 Traumatizing Things in Fiction as a Child

I haven’t done a top 10 list in ages, and because I am so original, I want to piggy-back off this concept one of my favorite YouTubers put out – traumatizing things in fiction as a child.  As a kid, I had a love-hate relationship with fear.  I loved getting afraid of things, just so I could become more enamored with them.  Today I have a relationship with fear that it’s just being wasted.  Gory horror films do nothing for me.  Deep psychological thrillers, or horror films that actually take the time to build atmosphere (there are so few) are my jam.  As a kid, the stuff that scared me tended to grab my attention.  But that doesn’t mean that it didn’t fuck me up all the same.  Here is a list of the top ten things in fiction that REALLY messed with me, growing up, in a scary way.  Won’t be including any visual aids for this.  Sorry if that’s a deal-breaker.  I just have some of these attached to memories I’d like to forget.

10. Turning into lizard creatures
Star Trek Voyager
In one episode, Lt. Paris had discovered that it was possible to go to warp 10.  He wanted to test this, and he just so happened to take Capt. Janeway along for the ride.  What followed was them turning into these weird lizard creatures. But it wasn’t what you’d expect from Star Trek.  They weren’t some big bulky thing that you can clearly tell is a costume or prop.  They turn into these small creatures that look real.  It was so unsettling to me as a child.  For whatever reason, it just scared me out of my wits that I would turn into one of those things one day.

9. Pig head girl
Goosebumps
This one just fucked with my head.  An episode of Goosebumps featured this city that people could warp into.  It was a two-part episode where you had one of the main characters being turned into a pig because of her greed.  That image just fucked with me so hard.  Looking back on it now it’s ridiculous.  But at the time it just fucked me up so hard.

8. Back monster scene
Phantasm II
As a kid I had this bad habit of going over to my uncle’s house.  He is hardcore religious, and had a pool.  But he also had another thing that he did – watch movies that were SO not appropriate for children.  And as a kid who liked to do things I wasn’t supposed to, I would sneak over sometimes and watch them.  One such film was Phantasm II.  In it, we have a scene with a woman who is covered by a black cloak.  They pull it off her face, and see that her mouth is taped shut.  What else is under that cloak?  They pull back more to reveal that there is a monster inside of her back, eating her.  That scene stuck with me so hard.  Scared the living shit out of me.  But I couldn’t tell my parents about it because I would have gotten in trouble.  The things I dealt with in silence.

7. The covers
Scary Stories (series)
Remember what I said about things that scared me enticing me to know more?  Well, this was one such instance.  I am so fucking pissed that they redid the covers for the new editions of the stories.  The reasoning?  Because they are too scary for kids.  Bullshit!  That is fucking stupid, and people who think that way are stupider.  Yeah, they are scary, but sometimes things that scare kids also intrigue them.  We like a little fear.  I read all of those books because of the covers.  And the neat fact is that the stories themselves were usually about sources of fear who are just misunderstood.  I hate this idea that we have to make the world less difficult for children.  Yeah, because kids can’t handle some scary imagery.  Give me a fucking break.

6. The Witch
Hansel and Gretel
I honestly don’t know which version of this story I saw as a kid, but I remember that there was one version with this character who just fucked up my head so hard.  Something about her screaming at these two children who she had chained up in a cage just messed with my head so fucking hard.  I wish I could remember which version I saw.  This story has been done to death.  Another relic from a time gone by – when we could scare the shit out of children and it was okay, so long as the story has a happy ending.  Don Bluth became a household name in the 80’s because of that philosophy, and he is absolutely right.

5. The threat of nuclear annihilation
I honestly don’t remember what specifically it was that got me scared of this.  Maybe it was a movie, or the news, but I remember that the idea of a nuclear weapon attacking my house scared the piss out of me.  To the point that I slept in my parents bedroom for ages.  We had these mattresses that you could move around, and I was sleeping on one in the corner of their room for a long time.  Now that we could be facing down World War III with North Korea, and the fact that my home state is in their launch radius, that thought has come back to me.  Only this time I think I’d grab some marshmallows and enjoy the roast.

4. The Oompa Loompas
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
I’m talking about the original, not that weird Tim Burton shit.  In this film, the only thing I found truly frightening as a kid growing up with those orange-faced bastards.  They are fucking creepy!  Their creepy faces and their creepy green hair and their creepy songs.  I hated them so much.  To this day I’m not a huge fan.  If I will say what the remakes did better, it is the different songs.  One good spot on a terrible movie.  That’s something, right?

3. Slappy the Puppet
Goosebumps
Oh my Groj, this fucking puppet.  One of the times that something didn’t entice me through fear and just freaked me the fuck out was this puppet.  Everything from its creepy face to its creepy voice, the thing was just so scary!  The guy they got for this puppet was just amazing.  To this day, that creepy face makes my skin crawl.  I’m well-aware how fake it all is, but it’s all in the performance.  The guy they got for that was just too good.

2. Chernabog
Fantasia
The quintessential example of fear compelling me to fascination.  As I am sure many who read my site know, Fantasia is not only my favorite Disney film, but my second favorite film of all time.  And nowhere was that quality better exemplified than in the final number.  In it, we see a powerful demon by the name of Chernabog summoning forth all of the damned for what must be one hell of a party.  That creature mesmerized me.  I loved everything about it.  It had size, presence, and a creepy smile that just played into how scared and captivated I was at the same time.  This character has become a staple of what I love about that film.  Just made me want to go to the party that much more.

And the thing that freaked me out the most in fiction as a kid…

1. Expanding feet
Full House
A disclaimer – I didn’t like this show growing up.  It was stupid, but I was young enough to be stuck watching it when the rest of the family was.  And one scene that really fucked with my head growing up was when the youngest child in the family had this scary dream about her feet expanding really huge, and seeing it.  That shit fucked me up!  For weeks I had bad dreams about that concept, and to this day I feel a little weird when I see it.  Old trauma, maybe?  In any case, in a series devoid of any real tension or darkness, that one element has stuck with me.  Hell, it’s the only thing I can actually remember about the series, outside of the Nostalgia Critic’s review of it.

So, what stuff from fiction fucked up your life as a kid?  Let me know in the Comments

YouTube is Strangling the Talent From Their Site

I remember back when I first started really watching YouTube.  It was 2008 or 2009.  I was into college and I remember hearing about this YouTube personality called The Amazing Atheist.  I tuned in, and I remember really liking what I saw.  So I decided to see what other voices there were.  There was Thunderf00t, King Heathen, Dark Matter 2525, Coughlin 666, gogreen18, and others.  An atheist movement came together on YouTube.  And it was awesome.  This little community that was fighting against organized religion.  What’s more – it was winning.  In the end, organized religion lost out.  Atheism won.

From there, I had personalities that were fun to watch and I got invested.  I still watch The Amazing Atheist.  I still love his content.  I love the podcast he is on.  It feels like I have some friends.  What’s the term now?  “Para-social relationships,” I think?  Yeah, I feel that.  It’s what led me to briefly be on a livestream show.  God how I miss that.  I have been with TJ and my compatriots through it all.  I have seen the destruction of the YouTube atheist community from SJW influence.  I watched the battle go from YouTube to gaming.  I have seen the battle go to the news.  All the drama, all the turns of what was happening.  It feels so familiar to me.

So when I see what YouTube has decided to do to the people who got them where they are today, it legitimately hurts.  What’s more, people’s lack of being upset bugs me too.  See, the old media has decided that since they can’t win the war against new media on a level playing field, they will attack their main platform’s money and then try and bankrupt the competition.  The really depressing part is it worked.  All of the major anti-SJW YouTube personalities are talking about how they can find a way to keep their content going.  Others are already saying that they are going to throw in the towel.  That they won’t try and make content if they can’t get paid for it.  New media showed how weak they are, and instead of having to up their game, they instead are trying to just burn down their competition.

And they’re winning.  Corporate old media is winning the online war.  What’s more, they have the people who view this content siding with them.  Lots of these fucking assholes going “better go out and get a REAL job, YouTubers!”  Yeah, because what they do isn’t a real job.  If it’s so easy, then why doesn’t your uniquely lazy ass working at Starbucks go out and do it?!  Go ahead!  Show me what you got!  Since corporate media is turning YouTube into a PG zone so no one’s fee-fees are hurt, show me what you got.  The old media is winning, and no one seems to care.  That just blows my fucking mind.

I love the YouTube personalities I watch.  Sure, most of the ones I watched long ago are gone.  I don’t even know what Coughlin is up to these days.  Probably getting no views as he keeps spouting SJW bullshit.  Haven’t seen a GrapplingIgnorance video in years.  King Heathen, whatever happened to him?  We all know what happened to Laci Green.  So many personalities, and they’re gone.  TJ continues.  So do others, who have found a way to make a living putting out incredible content.  Content that has been with me for so long and even helped me get through rough times.  These people’s livelihoods are threatened, because YouTube has decided that instead of standing up for YOUTube, they are going to try and be another Netflix or Hulu clone.  They want to have content that only caters to people who bring in Coca-Cola ads.  Like TJ and his ilk didn’t do that.  Like the people who say that SJWs are full of shit didn’t do that.

If this the direction that this platform that I love is going, then I won’t be a part of it.  I don’t go on there to watch fucking cat videos.  I go there to watch content about political and social issues.  I go to watch personalities I like make fun of the butthurt losers who feel the need to have their feelings be deified.  That’s what I am doing on that platform.  YouTube wants to take that away from me, and they have the support of the people who do NOTHING to try and stop them.  Who else is complaining?  Who else is saying that this is wrong?  Does @TeamYouTube even care what their audience thinks?  Probably not.  After all, every sign points to them planning to weather this out.  They figure that people will come back.  Well, I don’t mean to.  I can go to ACTUAL Netflix and watch something else.  I can go to whatever platform comes up next for the people I love to watch to migrate to.  Hell, I’ll blow hours upon hours of time on Drunken Peasant’s new monthly subscription site.  $5 a month to watch the content I want to watch?  Fuck yeah!

I am a patron of The Drunken Peasants.  I love so many personalities on YouTube.  If I get to see all of them go because they can’t make a living on this anymore, then fuck it.  I don’t want to watch the fucking cat videos.  Guess I am one of the few who feels that way.

Onision the Pedophile

I genuinely thought that today’s person to hate was going to be Lena the Sister-Fucker Dunham.  What she said about wishing she had had an abortion was pretty fucked up.  But nope!  That isn’t the person that I will be talking about.  Instead, I am going to share one of the most morally reprehensible stories that I have ever read, about a YouTuber who everyone already knew to be a scum-fuck, but now we get to see that he is also a pedophile.  At least, if you examine the fact that he runs a forum where he asks teenage girls to submit their underwear pics for him to judge on his YouTube channel.  I am, of course, talking about Onision.  Onision the pedophile.  Don’t believe me?  Here is a fantastic article by Heatstreet.  Read for yourself.  It will blow your fucking mind.

As I said, I already knew that Onision was a scum-fuck.  He’s been using his Internet fame to troll for 18 year old pussy for years.  That’s been pretty common knowledge.  A man on the cusp of 30 is trolling for barely legal pussy.  The guy has also been implicated in some ugly shit that involved an 18 year old girl who he was with for a time, got pregnant, and then broke up with because of some insane drama involving her and a musician that she was talking to on Twitter.  Check out that shit for some drama madness.  But that article just blew my mind.

Think about this, for a moment.  If some 40 year old man was asking for girls to send him pics of them in their underwear on a forum, would you think that that is anything other than morally disgusting?  Would you see that person as anything other than a pedophile?  Of course you wouldn’t.  And the worst thing of all – these girls want this.  They want to give a sexual predator pics of their nearly-naked bodies for him to judge in front of the entire Internet.  I cannot begin to comprehend the fucked-up mentality that goes along with this kind of behavior.  Teen girls will defend the actions of this guy, when if it was anyone not seen as attractive by their crowd, they would see him for the pervert that he is.

But here’s the thing that really gets to me – since Onision is riding the SJW train now, I wonder of he can get some of the support that Butts got.  Remember Butts?  Sarah Nyberg?  A wonderful trans pedophile that got all kinds of Internet support because she is part of a community who died on the hill defending that piece of shit.  There was one person who actually sent that immoral sack of shit a pic of their child to help cheer her up.  Yeah, that’s not disgusting and basically giving a treat for the unmasking of a sexual predator.  Thankfully, that situation was set right when the authorities were involved.  Hopefully that piece of shit gets to see the inside of a prison cell.  Maybe she can share it with Jared from Subway.

Really, though, the person I feel bad for are not only the stupid teen girls who are too fucking ignorant to know that they shouldn’t be putting their bodies out for all to see, but for their parents.  None of the crazy shit going on on that website would have been thrown into the public eye, were it not for the mother of a 13 year old girl who was as disgusted as everyone should be by seeing their child being exploited by an amoral prick like Greg.

For years, I have seen this guy just go from bad to worse.  He is a con artist who will piggyback on whatever he can in order to troll for views.  First he did his hackneyed comedy, which includes the best video he ever did where he got in a banana suit and danced around.  Then he tried to troll The Amazing Atheist and even get him to go onto the Steve Wilkos show with him to drum up the drama.  We then see him make a video where he is debating “Repsock” for almost an hour because Mr. Repzion wouldn’t debate with him, all while his 18 year old wife is pregnant.  The guy then makes feminism videos where he is clearly trolling for SJW pussy.  I haven’t seen the SJW crowd speak favorably of him.  Maybe he finally found a crowd that he can’t manipulate.  Now we find out he makes videos using the pics of teenage girls in their underwear to critique their bodies.

But perhaps worse than all of that is that probably at least one of the teenage flying monkeys (that is an actual psychological condition) will come on here and defend this behavior.  Just like the women who defended Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold because they were considered attractive.  Just like women who defend serial rapists who are good-looking.  There is something in the female psychology that says that you should be sexually attracted to people who do terrible things, so long as they are conventionally-attractive.  It always blows my mind.  These girls send him these pics!  Do they not care that he’s a sexual predator?!  Or maybe it’s more repulsive, and that appeals to them even more.  The very idea makes my skin crawl.

Which brings me to the fact that, as disgusting as Onision is, these girls are not innocent in this.  This isn’t victim-blaming.  However, they have every opportunity not to make the choice to send in their nearly-nude pics.  They could have been born with some sense, or taken a moment to stop and think about the fact that they could end up having their nearly-naked bodies on the Internet for all to see.  They could have stopped and actually used that gray matter that they are apparently wasting to realize that these videos will follow them around for the rest of their lives.  Or maybe they are too stupid for that.  Maybe not one of these girls was born without a single ounce of common sense.

As for you, Greg, you are a fucking pedophile.  You are openly asking teen girls to send you pics of them in their underwear.  I know for a fact that you jerk it to that.  If I was a religious person, I’d think that there is a special place in Hell for people like you.  But you and Butts are cut from the same cloth.  The difference is that Butts is disgusting and repulsive.  Teen girls want you to exploit them.  How long until you aren’t just having them send underwear pics in?  How long until it’s nude pics?  That’s assuming you don’t already get those.  That’s assuming that you haven’t already acted on this.  Either you have, or it’s only a matter of time.  A fact that fundamentally fills me with rage.  Fuck you, and your fucking hipster face.

Five Things I Hate Challenge

I’ve seen this idea making its way around the YouTube community, and since I am as original as a Subway Reuben sandwich (a concept that sounds disgusting beyond words), I thought that I would get in on the fun and do my own list of five things that I hate.  Rather than do some easy over-the-plate answers like SJWs and modern feminism, I thought I would talk about things that actually apply to my daily life.  Things that I have to deal with that just get under my skin and piss me the fuck off.  Here is my list of five things that I REALLY hate.

5. People who tell me to be more positive
I get this one all the fucking time at work.  I work a customer service job for a state industry that involves children and money.  You can probably extrapolate what it is from what I’ve said.  It is the most thankless job in the world, and I have to deal with some of the biggest scum-fucks ever.  But I am professional with everyone who calls.  I keep the same level tone with everyone.  Sure, there has been a slip-up or two, but I have always been at my very best.  However, once I hang up the phone from call with worthless parent #24 for that day, I sometimes need to vent.  Sometimes I have to call the lazy cunt who is bitching about having to pay because she is a worthless parent.

This has gotten people to be like, “you need to be more positive!”  I hear this shit all the time, and it never fails to illicit at least a little of my annoyance.  Let me have my moment of negativity.  I have to put on a happy face for every fucking asshole who calls in to scream at me about how me and my organization are thieves.  I deserve to have a moment to acknowledge how unpleasant it all is.  If there wasn’t this entire division singing about how it is so valuable and we are such wonderful people, maybe we could have an honest conversation about how miserable the job is.  Maybe then, real change could be made to make things less shitty.  Like getting a pinball machine for the break room or something.  You know, little ideas like that to make the day suck less.  Oh, but we can’t have that.  Instead, we have to find bullshit ways to pretend that it is just the happiest place in the world.  These people are insulting my fucking intelligence every time I have the super-cheerful boss come in and say how great every day is.

Fact is, I don’t get why everyone is so insane about trying to be positive all the time.  Life isn’t that great.  If a person needs to let some dark thoughts out into the zeitgeist to get through their day, why does everyone act like they took a piss in their coffee?  Does the attitude of someone that you don’t actually like all that much really bother you?  If you are so needing all life around you to be sunshine and roses then you have much deeper insecurities that you should probably address.  As for me, I live with depression caused by brain damage.  I’ll do what I do.

4. The endless sequels, remakes, and reboots
This goes for both video games and movies.  I am really hating the way things are nowadays.  Seems like every thing that is made is either a sequel, a remake, or a reboot.  The sequels are the worst.  Marvel has become a sequel machine.  Sure, there are the diamonds in the rough, like Civil War, Winter Soldier, and what I am hoping will be Spider-Man: Homecoming.  But for all the truly fantastic stuff, you have to slog through a bunch of complete shit.  I don’t have the energy for it.  I have never and will never watch any of the Thor movies.  Nor did I watch Ant-Man, or the original Captain America movie.  I didn’t want to.  This gets even worse for video games.  Seems like every major AAA game is a sequel.  This just bores me to no end.

Then we get the remakes.  Part of me is glad that we are seeing some truly toxic remakes coming out.  This year we got to see a Ghostbusters remake crash and burn on impact, which is for the best.  Hollywood is clearly out of ideas.  We can make fun of some of the bonkers and outright stupid shit that came from the 90’s, but you gotta give it this much – it was at least original.  I miss the days when studios would take huge risks with movies all so that people could let their creativity flow.

Finally, there are reboots.  These are no better.  The worst offender in recent memory is The Force Awakens.  I swear, there was a movie in there, but I couldn’t see it over this sheen of another film that came out 40 years ago that was so much better.  It’s like this movie was trying so desperately to riff on it.  You get the defenders coming out like, “it’s introducing a new generation to Star Wars!”  To those fucks, I say – you do own a DVD player, right?  You have Netflix?  Then what the fuck do you need this movie for?!  Watch the originals then, you stupid fucks!  This movie was boring.  It was dull.  I knew where the plot would go from beginning to end.  Not one thing surprised me or even got my attention.  The humor was cringe-worthy at best.  The “empowering female stormtrooper” has no face and barely any lines.  Harrison Ford looked medicated the whole time.  Daisy Ridley can’t act for shit.  Nothing about that movie was nearly as good as people said it would be.  I won’t be seeing the sequel in theaters.  Hell, I doubt I will see Rogue One in theaters either.  Spoilers be damned.

Every time I see a sequel, remake, or reboot coming out, I think of all the wasted potential that could have gone to a legitimately good film.  The wondering about what could have been, all the while realizing that I am just watching the same shit come out, over and over again.  Maybe the reason that DC films are being panned so much is that they are coming out and riffing on Marvel, and it just looks tacky at this point.

3. When people ask why I’m not dating
Yeah, this one was coming.  Every fucking year at the holidays, I have at least one person ask, “why aren’t you dating anyone?”  Oh, fuck off!  Yeah, like finding a relationship is just something I can go down to the corner store and do.  Meeting people is time-consuming, and I don’t even have time for friendships with this job.  Or rather, friends don’t have time for me because they have all their own adult shit.  I’m sad and lonely, so I got nothing but time when I’m not at work.  I don’t do the bar scene or the party scene, so where exactly am I supposed to meet people?  Everyone acts like all I do is just sit around and jerk it.  I keep trying to meet people, wherever I can.  But with this job and my limited finances associated with my shit pay, there’s only so much that I can do.

For so many years, I have had people who don’t know shit about me telling me about how I am doing this thing wrong or that thing wrong and judging me for not being married and talking about having a baby by now.  The reality is that the longer you are single, the more likely it is that you will stay single.  Statistically, I am totally fucked.  Oh well.  It was fun while it lasted.  Hope is a curse, after all.

2. When a person is about to say something critical of me, then stops, refusing to continue when I ask them to elaborate
Any of you have this problem?  Someone who you trust to be honest with you has their dander up and is all annoyed and just when they are about to tell you what bug has crawled up their ass, they suddenly stop.  When you ask them to elaborate, they just shrug it off like, “nope!”  So there you are, knowing that they are upset with you about something, and now they are just going to peace out.  Which means that now I have to wonder about it all day.  And you just KNOW that they aren’t going to forget about whatever it is that was pissing them off.  It becomes a cycle of the person being all pissy and passive-aggressive with you until they finally explode about it.

Why can’t people just be honest about how they feel and work things out with people?  We live in a generation of people who have to have safe spaces and don’t want to be honest because they fear confrontation.  Where I come from, if you are mad at someone, you have it out.  Then it’s done.  No dwelling, no passive-aggressive.  It’s just done.  Over the years, I have had so many people who have this problem.  Refusing to talk to me about what was bugging them has ruined at least one relationship, and a couple of friendships.  Anytime that someone is actively avoiding talking to me about something, that’s a red flag that it isn’t some stupid thing but something actively important that shouldn’t be ignored.

The worst thing is that I am all about resolving conflicts.  Having watched so many relationships fall apart due to not talking about things that needed to be talked about, anytime that I sense something is wrong, I press the issue.  Granted, if a person tells me that they don’t want to talk at that point, but they will get with me about it later, that’s fine.  However, if they then do not do so and start with the passive-aggressive bullshit, I will call them out on it.

1. SNOW!
For the last few years, winter in my state has been pretty awesome.  It barely existed.  That has been pretty fucking sweet.  All this climate change stuff has been a real boon to me.  Sure, pretty much is bitching and complaining about there not being enough snow, but fuck that noise!  I think it was awesome.  However, it seems that the good times are over and now things are back to a much more typical winter.  Oh boy.  Isn’t that just swell.  Which means now I have to deal with the white shit.

Sure, it is pretty to watch fall, but here’s the thing – I have a commute to work in the morning!  You know what that means?  That means that I have to deal with this shit every day.  And because I am an actually safe driver, I have to take more time out and get to work early.  I also carpool with my lady friend, so that adds even more time.  I’m not complaining about that part.  I only get so much time with her before she leaves, so I gotta take what I can get.  But it sucks that everything in my life gets immediately more difficult because I gotta deal with all this white shit everywhere.  And since everyone gets really fucking stupid when it snows, the chances of me getting killed by some dumbass goes up exponentially.

In the end, snow is just more of a challenge than it is something to like.  If you are one of those people who thinks that snow is awesome and whatever, I have no words for you.  You’re a weird fuck.

What are some of the things that you hate?  Let me know in the Comments.
