dozens of upvotes misogyny reddit shit that never happened sluts whores

Reddit quote of the day: “I lost a really good friend because he didn’t want to believe his wife was a [six expletives deleted].”

On AskReddit, lostabro33 tells the sad story of how he, er, lost a bro. The tl;dr version:

I lost a really good friend because he didn’t want to believe his wife was a fucking whore bitch slut cunt lying piece of shit.

Here’s the full quote. As you’ll notice, it has 1314 upvotes.

Yeah, that totally happened.

Is Reddit officially the worst place on earth?

(Sadly, I know the answer to that is no. But, damn, Reddit, you really to seem to want to take that number one slot.)

(Thanks to ShitRedditSays for finding this, er, gem.)

EDITED TO ADD: [TW: Child porn]

Speaking of shitty things on Reddit: There was more child porn up on Reddit, this time a post in r/videos with more than 900 upvotes and numerous positive comments, with a link to a video that showed the sexual abuse of a six-year-old boy. The folks in SRS have been talking about it; after numerous complaints from SRSers to the r/videos mods, Reddit admins, YouTube, and the FBI, the video has apparently been removed from YouTube. More details, and a link to the original r/videos thread, in the SRS thread devoted to it. There’s also a lot of discussion of it in the comments to this post here.

I know that if one of my friends sent me naked photos of my partner, my first thought would be to get angry at my partner, because clearly that’s the fucked up part here.

(Actually my first thought would be “yawn, more of those?” but this isn’t about me.)

Reddit is probably the worst place on the internet that honestly believes it’s a force of good. Sites like 4chan are fully aware of their awfulness.

Odds that this guy in fact did hack his friend’s wife’s computer? 97%.

Whoops, used my regular wordpress username up there.

I don’t imagine many people put their faces in on Gonewild, particularly considering Reddit’s love of digging up old gonewild posts to use as harassment against the women who post them.

I’d hazard a guess that both sides feel like they are telling the truth and the pictures were uploaded by another 3rd party. It then makes both stories sound realistic.

Does anyone else notice the disconnect between the two acts?

(1) Sends e-mail to ‘friend’ with photos of friend’s wife from a Girls Gone Wild site.
(2) ‘Friend’ threatens with police.

What? Why would the police need to be involved? Doesn’t this imply that the poster’s conduct was a little more extreme?

@ David, OT, but is it true what it says over there on your twitter feed that there’s “footage on reddit of a sexual act involving a 6uo child” up for more than a day? Ugh. Sometimes the world is a very bad place. 🙁

aussie, the police would be needed if this dood was a cyber criminal hacking computers. Also harassment is illegal, you can call for that.

Boy, file this one under need more information! And his assumption that something is horribly wrong because he finds pictures of the wife doing whatever. Why would it be automatically wrong? What does the husband feel about it, and what’s the story behind it?
So I’m guessing that the GGW subreddit posts porn, and that’s where he saw it? Maybe it’s just GGW by name? I ask this because GGW has not always obtained photos with consent. She could have been at one of their gatherings and been assaulted. It’s happened before. A woman found out Joe Francis, that total bag of shit, was making money off her after she had said no no no no no no, and someone else grabbed her shirt and pulled it up. The jury decided that her BEING THERE was consent. That’s some conservative shaming thinking right there. One never loses consent.

That might have absolutely nothing to do with this. Bottom line is, I don’t get it. What really happened? And my opinion of this guy is that it’s his own problem if he doesn’t like women doing whatever it was he saw that’s up to her husband to decide if this was some sort of betrayal or something he doesn’t want.

I don’t quite get it–does r/ girls gone wild post Porn With A Capital P or just GGW stuff? And I don’t see what the story says she would be lying about. Maybe when he says “the one who hacked” it means they knew there was a hacking? It’s difficult to assess the believability without any corroborating evidence, but I can see this kind of reaction occurring, depending on what he said about the wife, the wife’s personality, and the couple’s relationship.

And the CP thing—good lord, reddit, is there nothing you won’t sink to? That’s fucking atrocious.

Is there a term for when someone posts an explanation right before you ask a question? Like the opposite of ninja’d?

Hm. Snorlax’d?

EVER.

POP QUIZ!

If you saw a picture of a friend naked on the Internet, would your reaction be:

A) “I hope she knows this is out there! I should discreetly check with her.”
B) “Wow, that’s awkward. I’m closing this window and never thinking about this again.”
C) “Gosh, she’s cute naked.”
D) “Maybe her husband took this picture.”
E) “Maybe this picture is from before she got married.”
F) “Fucking whore bitch slut cunt lying piece of shit.”

If you picked “F,” congratulations, that is your grade as a goddamn human being.

David’s last comment explains why I don’t let anyone take pics of me naked. That being said, though, if this is a forum in which users post naked pics of themselves and this dude’s friend’s wife posted herself there, so what? Why all the drama? 97% is too low – this story sounds about 99.999% fake.

If you’re cheering on child porn on Reddit, you aren’t funny or edgy, you’re a sick fuck who needs to sit down and have a good long think about the life choices that got you to this point.

As obnoxious as ED can be, it still has enough of a moral compass to take a pretty clear “child porn is bad” approach. Reddit seems to be less about trying to shock people with your shocking content (though there’s a bit of that) and more of a haven for people who’re completely amoral.

These people must be totally lacking in empathy. How could they not realize how damaging this would be to a child? (really to anyone, but especially a child).

Amoral doesn’t quite cut it. I think if you take pleasure in the pain of someone who can’t consent or fight back, you’re striaght up evil.

Well, I figured Reddit was at least minimally interested in keeping up appearances. You know, “THESE TEENS ARE TOTALLY OF LEGAL AGE WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT”. They aren’t even trying to pretend anymore. Which you are right, it’s not surprising I suppose, they were gonna hit this point sometime with the site’s total lack of moral compass.

It’s basically the site for people who think that they have an inherent right to be complete assholes, and that anyone who complains about it or even points out that they’re being assholes is infringing on their civil liberties.

I…don’t quite even understand the point of reddit. I’d only heard about it now and then, and of course it’s mentioned on this site quite a bit. But I do know that I never, ever, want to have anything to do with it. God, I hope that kid is rescued. The people who applaud that need to be found and locked up (in jail that is, NOT a place for the mentally ill; yes, I’m looking at YOU, Diane).

I really doubt reddit mods check to make sure people are actually posting themselves, and those posting nudes are probably infringing upon the trust someone else gave them when sharing a picture of themselves with them. That stuff disgusts me.

As for the CP, where are the MRAs to fight that? I mean, for all of their causes against male rape, molestation, and teacher/student scandals, this stuff goes through on the site they congregate in and it’s not the end of the world? How can they justify using reddit when male child porn is posted there?

Oh, noes. The SA, SRS crowd thinks, “Why you no good, reddit?” Ha. Just because we at reddit are generally recognized to be A W E S O M E, should not instill jealousy. I mean, David is on reddit all the time.

Maybe there’s parts of Reddit that you are more fond of than the rest of us here, Magz, but surely you don’t think the fact that there’s nude photos of a woman online makes her a “fucking whore bitch slut cunt lying piece of shit,” do you?

Used to be a news aggregator, now it’s a social hub. Since anyone can make any kind of subreddit they want, and it’s not moderated, the expected happened. The only decent people on there are ShitRedditSays (which is half Manboobz regulars and half Something Awful) and fifthworldproblems, which is Something Awful regulars producing surreal stuff.

Magdalene is only sex positive if it’s (1) her, (2) “edgy,” or (3) men, who are so freaking downtrodden they need all the help they can get from her, apparently.

4chan caught a pedophile once, so that officially places them above Reddit in my book. What other worse places were you thinking of, David?

@Viscaria:

No I don’t Viscaria. But, the vast majority of reddit does not either. There are 67,000 subreddits with millions of accounts. So, one must ask themselves, why is reddit all of a sudden under constant attack. It is a backlash from people who think that the venue has too much power to influence the relatively young male demographic that uses it. One can see why feminists can’t stand reddit. With so many redditors not drinking the cool aid, and calling out establishment ideas, progressive realize the power of the medium. Powerful figures have been on reddit.

Oooooh ooooh, I know this one! It’s because they allow users to post child porn and then other users to post encouraging comments on it!!!

Huh. Really? Not the child porn thing?

One can see why feminists can’t stand reddit.

No consequences for child porn? Something like that?

Ohhhhhhhh. Sure, Mags. That must be it. Not that it’s a disgusting haven for child pornographers and pedophiles — it’s … too popular.

@Magz: Okay, well… good. I mean, I think most of what you said is utter bullshit XD but I’m glad to hear you weren’t defending the OP. I didn’t even ask about the child porn that came up in the comments because it didn’t even occur to me that you’d be okay with that.

magdelynswallows

right bee-person. millions of redditors are championing CP. not. furthermore, the focus on reddit, such as SPLC, came a direct result of perceived influence of the MRM, on reddit.
