    I couldn't agree more.


    As further proof of this, my thread was deleted because "there are vulnerable users on TSR", FFS.

    The best (or worst) example of this is fat people. All this fat acceptance is raising a society of fatties who think they're beautiful.

    Bring back fatshaming.
    My mum told me I was fat and it did wonders for my health and my sex life, if I had a normie-mother I would probably have died my hair purple and joined tumblr

    Teach me how to make a poll, I want to make a thread. Lmao.

    And you just loooove the word pussy, no jokes.
    When you click create thread and are entering a thread title and text box, scroll down and tick the "include poll" box, then click submit and it will let you add your poll question/responses (I also recommend making responses public)

    I make no apologies for my pleasures in life

    No. I mean renegade. It wasn't an insult nor a compliment. It was an observation.

    Well they get sponsored, so they have to be socially responsible for their sponsors and cut out all the muck. It's essentially messing with their livelihood when you make an unnecessary mess on here.

    I think a better discussion is the politically correctness in the real world like being persecuted for not liking a certain group.

    My best friend was obese in secondary school, 5'8 and 95 kg at the age of 14. We ridiculed him everyday "where's your bra" "have you ever seen your own penis". He joined a gym and lost 20kg in 3 months.

    But this does work more with men, if you insult men about something they try to change it, women not so much.

    Exactly. It works so well with men that our obsession with therapy and acceptance is the precise reason we have so many men suffering issues, we don't need more understanding, we need less BS.

    Fat shaming never left from my perspective.

    Some people get too offended these days, I prefer to keep a stiff upper lip.

    But white lies are also in some way needed and without them I am sure I would have no friends and be the biggest a hole in the school.
    Lies are a fabric of society

    It's a British thing. A lot of people found my bluntness to be rude when I moved over, the ones I kept as friends got used to it tho
    Ha. Rude? I'm rather get **** and be told my problems so i can improve rather than a fake stupid polite group.

    No, it's not genetic you choose to do it. Most likely a product of society as some may say, you're raised to be "polite" and everyone else around you is too, so most jump on the bandwagon.

    Nah. It's more so having no tolerance for impolite people, as opposed to being polite.
