WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS SO FUCKING SAD
I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS
i will never not reblog this
Dr. Seuss was a racist. He wouldn’t attach his words to an interracial romance. Here are seven racist cartoons he made about Japanese-Americans during WWII.
He also later apologized and wrote Horton Hears a Who! to illustrate his remorse for his previous way of thinking
Reblogging for the comic and Dr. Suess comment
when you remember something embarrassing/painful from the past and you’re just like
Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
Well, he was sorta asking for it, dressing in such flammable clothing.
if he didnt want to get set on fire, he should have stayed indoors
He was probably drinking that night, alcohol makes you susceptible to fire.
If it’s a legitimate inferno, the male body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
God I love you, Internet.
Why didn’t he stop, drop, and roll? He should have stopped, dropped, and rolled. He must have secretly wanted it.
If you read the article, eyewitnesses said the man had purchased a lighter earlier that same day. Dude probably set himself on fire and lied about it. Typical.
He should have relaxed and enjoyed it. After all it was just a bit of kindling cuddling
We need to start educating people about wearing fire-safe clothing and carrying extinguishers with them at all times. For their own safety.
Hallelujah for these comments. Its about time we tackled the REAL issues of male incineration. They probably have Mommy issues and seek out attention from the wrong women. These women see that cheap polyester from miles away and feel that this what the men want.
Okay, I may be opening myself up to all kinds of shit just for saying this but here goes…
I want to start by saying that rape is an awful thing, it shouldn’t happen to anybody. I personally can’t even find myself disagreeing with the actions of the woman who did this since I have no idea what kind of trauma she went through as a result of his actions, although setting him on fire seems excessive to me. Wouldn’t bludgeoning him over the head or stabbing him been enough?
What I do want to say is all the jokes following are heavily distasteful. A real man is dead here. He died slowly and painfully and whether he was a rapist or not he was still a human being.
Over time, with psychological counseling and the help of loved ones you can get over the psychological damage of rape. It is hard and a struggle that people shouldn’t have to go through but it is not insurmountable. There is no getting over being dead. From my (admittedly disconnected and entirely outside) opinion the punishment does not fit the crime. The words “cruel and unusual” come to mind.
My final thought on this is that the accused man now never has a chance to make amends for his actions. I happen to believe in redemption which this man may not have sought in his life, but simply killing him and never giving him the chance, while not an unforgivable action, is still a bit deplorable.
That is all, I hope that you will all be kind about my take on this. If I am wrong about this please show me a better way instead of bombing me with hate.
"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….
Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.
Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful.
The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything.
This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”
