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.

BTW, noone is buy the CP bullshit your trying to sell. The most vociferous voices against reddit are feminists, for the exact reasons I stated.

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.

Rick Astley rickrolled the Macy’s Parade thanks to 4chan memes. Chanology was the first world-wide protest of the Church of Lawology, and Anonymous (the hacker group) attacked fraudulent or harmful major corporations and the Syrian government (It hasn’t always been good, but it has taken some actual action).
Something Awful called for, and *got*, substantial donations to Hurricane Katrina victims.
Reddit’s done…. what?

BTW, noone is buy the CP bullshit your trying to sell.

No, really, that’s the reason. It happened; some of the goings on are detailed here.

With so many redditors not drinking the cool aid, and calling out establishment ideas, progressive realize the power of the medium.

Look, if any of that were actually true, I might be inclined to like it (but not so much as to ignore the CP), but mostly it just strengthens the establishment; you just think you’re anti-establishment.

4chan caught a pedophile once, so that officially places them above Reddit in my book.

Not ‘once’. Posting CP got you banned and reported to the authorities with identifying information such as could be found. They annoy people on internet sites, but at least they have some measure of decency. Not a lot, but again, more than Reddit.

(which is half Manboobz regulars and half Something Awful)

For real?

Also, Something Awful maintains a most excellent Wikia of recipes, called “Goons with Spoons”. I highly recommend it; it even has an Easy section that helped me when I was getting started with cooking (And i like some of the recipes for fast preparation even now). Which is still more than Reddit’s done.

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.

Because people who like child porn are mavericks calling out “establishment ideals”. Imbeciles with utter contempt for people who they see as below them and with no comprehension of the suffering of anyone else other themselves are rebels fighting against THE MAN.

Tru fax, mags.

It’s not just one post, Mags. You know that. Are you trying to say that feminists couldn’t be against Reddit because of any of the many examples of misogyny and rape, intimate partner violence, and pedophila apologism (and, frankly, celebration)? The only possible reason anyone would raise a vociferous voice against Reddit, that unimpeachable beacon of civilization, is … it’s too good?

Riiiiiight, Mags person.

Dammit Mags, this is not the FIRST time that there has been CP on Reddit. And honestly, one instance that doesn’t lead to the offending party being turned over to the FBI is enough to make me hate that organization forever and ever. It’s not because I’m a feminist, it’s because I’m a decent human being.

You guys realize you’re arguing with someone who thinks it’s cool to print the word “awesome” with spaces between the letters.

magdelynswallows

M Dubz, there is unfortunately CP on the internet. There are millions of people on the internet. Just because there is CP on the internet does not make those millons of people guilty of advocating for CP.

The CP argument is just the lastest in what will undoubtedly be many attempts to politicize some problematic issue and paint the whole community with the accusation of guilt. This is, as I’ve stated, because feminists believe that reddit itself is a problem for feminism and their agenda.

It kind of reminds me of the ever changing arguments against prostitution. It’s not the alleged problems associated with prostitution that are really hated, but prostitution itself. But, in order to legitimize the fact that they don’t like the act of prostitution, and since they can’t very well demonize the women, they congure up false statistics with advocacy research to create an issue in which they can demonize men.

People, please. There is nothing more edgy and cool and anti-establishment and Totally Sticking It to the Man than calling women strings of expletives when you catch them being sexy.

Well, besides child porn.

You fail to mention David, that there are a lot of people disgusted with /r/SRS who visit the reddit. I assume you also visit /r/SRD and know that /r/SRS digusts many people with their behavior.

BTW David, as much as you would like it otherwise, I am not responsible for editorialize about all CP on reddit.

Holly Pervocracy

How DARE SRS object to misogyny, homophobia, racism, and child porn.

Objecting to these things is the WORST.

I bet the NAZIS told people not to watch child porn.

You know what Mags? I’m just going to go ahead and say it: you’re condoning child rape. I hope you’re proud of yourself.

magdelynswallows

One more thing, not ever having sought out, or actually seen CP on reddit (or anywhere, for that matter), I am just going to take it on good faith that there was in fact CP somewhere on reddit, and that you guys aren’t extrapolating that CP where none actually does exist. Furthermore, not only are you guys arguing that CP was on reddit, but that it was not aberrational, but rather common. That, of course, I don’t buy.

magdelynswallows

M Dubz, seek therarpy You need it.

So Mags, you’re admitting you haven’t explored reddit much, but you’re sure that CP is an aberration on reddit. Mmm, okay.

I bet the NAZIS told people not to watch child porn.

The thing is? They probably did.

Internet, you are being worse than Nazis. Nazis would give you side eye.

For obvious reasons I’m not linking the video, but here’s the SRS thread discussing it (which does have a link):

http://www.reddit.com/r/ShitRedditSays/comments/si2tv/tw_i_only_saw_one_ridiculously_lucky_kid_on_a/

This isn’t a matter of we think there might be child porn somewhere on Reddit maybe. This is a very obvious and specific case.

magdelynswallows
9 years ago

Well, David, since it is a Federal crime to even look at CP, I will not go venture to substantiate your claim. If in fact you went to look at that video, believing there was child porn there, I would caution you that it is a federal crime to knowingly possess, manufacture, distribute, or access with intent to view child pornography (18 U.S.C. §2252)

magdelynswallows
9 years ago

Yeah, Cloudiah, that’s exacty what I said.

Holly Pervocracy

You’re fucking hilarious, Magz. You’re accusing David of committing a crime by watching child porn (which, I dunno about him, but I took people’s word for the video’s comments), but not at all concerned about the people POSTING it on this site you’re so happily defending, people who are not just DEFINITELY watching it but are CHEERING for it.

You don’t think that’s a fucking crime?

jumbofish

You don’t need to look at the video to know its child porn. You can just read the comments.

Holly Pervocracy
9 years ago

And yeah, child porn is an aberration on Reddit, in the sense that they don’t have it every day.

You want a cookie?

Me, I’m fussy and stuff, I hold my websites to a zero child porn standard, rather than a “like not too much” child porn standard. Fussy fussy, right?

Mags just sounds like Antsy now.
* Everything is just a feminist plot to destroy feminism’s enemies. (I’m sure the feminist cyber-ninjas will be murdering reddit’s sysadmins within the hour.)
* You’re just soo afraid of Us!
* Shifting goalposts, skewed priorities.

Boring! Get a new schtick, Mags.

HP, you can go ahead and manufacture arguments about things that I haven’ts said all you want. Got take your self created outrage somewhere else. You’re full if shit, just as M Dubs is. But, its worse than that, because you both are fundementally dishonest.

jumbofish

clearly its too strict holly! Your site can’t be considered A W E S O M E until you go easy on child porn!

*barfs*

Holly Pervocracy

Oooh, I’m so dishonest, saying there’s child porn in a place that there’s child porn.

Because the new meaning of the word “lie” is “anything that makes MRAs/Reddit look bad.” For example, direct quotes from Redditors are lies.

…I think your posts here might also be lies then, Magz, because geez.

You can’t even stretch yourself so fucking far as to say CHILD PORN IS BAD. I mean, wow, talk about a controversial fucking stance. Wouldn’t want to compromise yourself by making a concession like that!

M Dubz

Nope, Mags. I’m going to stand by my comment. And I’m pretty sure that everyone else on this site who is not a total piece of shit would agree with my assessment.

magdelynswallows

You’re full of shit HP. No one has denied that CP is bad. You don’t like my argument that Reddit is not a CP mecha and that all the millions of redditors, which you happily slander, support CP. You’re full of shit.

magdelynswallows

Stand your ground M dubs, but please seek pshyciatric help. I mean, for our own good.

Holly Pervocracy

Yo, Magz, if you don’t want people saying you condone child porn, maybe instead of calling them liars you could CONDEMN CHILD PORN. Maybe even fucking do something about it.

Seems faster, you know?

…Hey, it’s a boy being abused in that video. And aren’t you mod of a community that’s supposed to be looking out for boys in situations just like this?

You really can’t think of fucking anything you could do besides troll us about it?

cloudiah

Due diligence, Mags. Before you claim that CP isn’t abundant on reddit, you might want to check your facts.

Holly Pervocracy
9 years ago

r/MR doesn’t (at least that I could see) even have a post about this.

There’s a post about “feminists attempting to ban urinals and force men to pee sitting down,” but this abuse of a boy right under your noses? Not nearly as important as Those Evil Pee-Controlling Feminists, I guess?

cloudiah

Mags will support the rights of men, but 6yo boys being sexually assaulted — well, that needs further review. Except Mags won’t review it either. 🙁

I don’t get grumpy terribly often Mags darling, but I think it’s perfectly psychologically healthy to get super fucking cheezed at someone who is currently DOWNPLAYING THE RAPE OF SMALL CHILDREN. I’m more than happy to retract my statements if you can just pull your head out of your ass and say that reddit needs to shut this shit down ASAP. Not terribly much to ask. Until then, well.

magdelynswallows
9 years ago

Let me get this straight HP, in order for me to say that the vast majority of the millions or reddtors don’t watch child porn, I should predicate my statement with a disclaimer (which is so obvious I wouldn’t think it necessary to state in civilized discourse) that I condem child porn?

Okay, I condemn child porn. I’ve never sought out or watched child porn. I hope you can say the same thing. In fact, any argument you proffer, I shall demand that such a disclaimer is made by you, or I will just have to assume you’re a child pornographer.

Now, why don’t you fucking admit that you are your friends here are slandering millions of redditors by implying that they watch and support CP?

jumbofish

…Hey, it’s a boy being abused in that video. And aren’t you mod of a community that’s supposed to be looking out for boys in situations just like this?

Well no it’s only certain men she cares about you know. The ones that fit her “ideal man” and anyone else doesn’t count for shit.

Stand your ground M dubs, but please seek pshyciatric help. I mean, for our own good.

Seek help for disagreeing? Can’t say that’s a new one to use…. *rolls eyes*

“…DOWNPLAYING THE RAPE OF SMALL CHILDREN…”

Are the voices in your head telling you that?

magdelynswallows
9 years ago

because you keep on confusing my statement that millions of redditors don’t condone CP, with my downplaying rape against children. you’re either being profoundly dishonest, as HP is doing (purposefully), or you’re quite insane.

Holly Pervocracy
9 years ago

Now, why don’t you fucking admit that you are your friends here are slandering millions of redditors by implying that they watch and support CP?

Okay, fine. As far as I know, only thousands of Redditors (the video had well over a thousand upvotes) watch CP.

Sorry I don’t have a fuckin’ cookie for you.
