Your average SJW. submitted by Ekiph to pics

Foobarbaz 6 points 47 points (+53|-6) ago

Not sure if you want an honest answer or not but I grew up being told a degree, ANY degree, will get you hired. Underwater basket weaving was the joke. Anyone 50 and older probably believe that because they lived it. Anyone 75 and older didn't even need a degree.

Liberal arts degrees were pretty easy to get and didn't commit you to a field. So you're supposed to be leagues more employable than a high school student but not as much as an engineer. Instead we have people who view this as wasted time and equal to a high school diploma.

The reality is our parents were wrong and our parents gave us poor suggestions. I got lucky and went my own path but that doesn't change what everyone around me grew up being told.

The funny thing is I keep hearing about accountability for your own decisions.. but I never hear the 50+ crowd accepting responsibility for giving bad suggestions that lead to these situations. It's as if they don't see their own irony. I know this isn't what the older crowd wants to hear but it's the truth and they need to accept responsibility for their poor leadership of their kids. Their kids trusted them and the parents failed them. It really is as simple as that for a non-trivial amount of them.

Healthy retired nurse ends life because she didn't want to go any more downhill submitted by RockAndNoWater to news

Selfish? No, I feel you have it backwards. Her kids, partner, and friends are selfish for wanting her to live in misery simply because they have to move on.

You honestly prefer people you love to live a horrible, painful, and miserable life just so you don't have to deal with their death? No, my friend, I think you are the one being selfish here.

Judge Rule: Man had right to shoot down drone over his house as it was violating his right to privacy submitted by wasserwoo to news

We need the ability to take these things down when they enter private areas.

Remember, you are still responsible for where you bullets go. I'm VERY pro-gun but I'm also anti-dumbass. Do not use bullets on drones unless you are a crack shot and know the ammo won't go through the drone. Again, you are responsible for what happens with that gun. Period, full stop.

Think of all the people you know or the thousands of videos you've seen at this point

Appeal to emotion means fuck all to me. Your right to privacy does not override my right to not have a slug or pellets come down on my because you're a moron and incapable of controlling your emotions.

It's gotten out of hand, and there's no way to regulate dickheads using drones.

It's new tech. It's not "out of hand" -- it's exploring boundaries. You're being melodramatic. This isn't too far from the discussion of Google Glass and technology like that where you can walk into a bathroom

This isn't even a new conversation. Being able to have a recording of a drone is more than a decade old -- the only difference is control. A decade+ ago you could get a model rocket with a camera that's reasonable quality and record ALL kinds of shit.

We need the legal precedent to take these things out of the sky when they're being abused or we'll end up at a point where people use them to mostly abuse others because the law is on their side and they're essentially untouchable.

That's quite the slippery slope fallacy. I remember Sony vs Universal throwing a temper tantrum like this. It's a chicken little attitude. Sure you'll have a few assholes but it's hardly different than an RC car. It's neat for a while but eventually it gets old fast because there isn't a lot going on.

It's gotten out of hand, and there's no way to regulate dickheads using drones.

There's also no reason to put laws in you can't enforce.

Again, I can't stress this enough: DON'T BE STUPID WITH A GUN. Just because you can't keep your emotions in check doesn't mean you can put everyone else around you in danger.

Daughter Calls 911 to Help Suicidal Mother, Cops Shoot Her by Mistake, Then Kill Her Mom submitted by zenmastery to news

And you know it's not acceptable, how? Because a website told you?

Where you personally there to witness this? Have you seen any video that we haven't? Have you read the police reports as well as filed claims personally?

You seem very confident in your answer and I can only assume you know more than what the article is claiming. Would you mind showing us this information?

edit: oohhh, people are mad I'm not ready to judge based on an article. I need to get some popcorn for this thread.

It's not being naive. It's being non-judgemental and reserving myself.

Naive is doing what you're doing and taking an article at face value.

I know more than one woman who was an ardent feminist until she met the right man and became happy.

And I hope she was ridiculed the entire time for it.

What men don't realize is that they merely make themselves less attractive to women when they go along with their irrational whining.

I don't know many men who have rallies and cheerlead themselves. They usually respond to the issues, they aren't out advocating fuck all and, personally, I think you have it backwards. Women make themselves infinitely less attractive by being bat-shit-crazy feminazi.

The minute feminism becomes a joke among men, it will become a joke among most women as well.

In my opinion that's a naive stance. Racism is a joke and yet it still holds significant political sway.
