thinkofpollyanna asked: Yeah, my guy friend called me and was like, "LOL Jennifer Lawrence nude pics were leaked! !! she's super hot". I got so pissed off. I said, "Dude, does it not even disgust you that someone would invade someone's privacy in that way?" and he responded with, "well, lots of people have already seen it so it doesn't matter if I see it." I was like, "THAT'S the fucking problem. It's a common case that mirrors the Genovese Syndrome: "It won't matter if just one more person sees it." I'm so disgusted.


Answer:

misandry-mermaid:

Looks like your guy friend is basically a huge scumbag.  If you can justify exploiting and violating a person who’s previously been exploited and violated to an immeasurable degree, it becomes easy to justify doing many more awful things because you don’t think it matters.  This “friend” just raised a huge red flag and is quite likely not to be trusted again.

The government wouldn’t spend a dime on education, healthy food, drinkable water, assisting people in poverty, de-polluting the streets, or anything else of importance. But they would be on call to spend millions on equipping a small police force to fight off a group of defenseless protestors. You can argue with me that this is not a hate crime, when it so obviously is, but you can’t argue with me when I say that this government is too corrupt to even serve it’s purpose.

it’s weird how straight boys will find out that a girl is bisexual and then think that girl wants to fuck them with another girl. And if they find out a guy is gay they think that guy wants to fuck them.

No one wants to have sex with you. You are are not cute. At all.

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.

White people:You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!
Eyewitnesses:He was on his knees with his hands up.
Medical examiner:There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.
Convenience store owner and clerk:There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.
Ferguson PD:Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.

White people:Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!
