So I'm a fan of Amy Schumer, so I lurked the board with the name "Holla Forums"
Asked a question a few weeks back, got a weird answer by someone who didn't seem to like her and I answered something about why that person was on this board if they didn't like her, no answer.
For some reason tonight I was looking around, my pregnate fiancée is sleeping tight and I got a few hours to kill, after all, it's saturday, party! So I noticed a link attacking her from this board, got confused again and decided to look at the board in question and it's pretty much only that.
So here I'm going to pause, put myself in context, then I'll explain how I like her and finally why this board incarnates pretty much all the bullshit Holla Forums is.
I'm a french-canadian big guy, 40 years old, have both family names because was raised by a feminist who was the daughter of a special force soldier from the first batallion of canadian parachutist. My other grandfather was also a soldier and I learn to fight really young, to put into context, I went to tristar once and a jujitsu coach told me I could be a world champion in the UFC which doesn't surprise me, special forces like the parachutists used jiu-jitsu and I learned it starting like 2 years old, it's natural to me.
So maybe, I thought, that is why I'm not afraid of girls, me-warrior-me-not-afraid, I mean, all this paranoïa with guys afraid of feminists is weird, isn't it obvious when you look at the world that woman are way too oppressed worldwide and so that this feminism is just another word for anti-sexism?
So I thought, ok, maybe the thing is with the word, they think feminists should be called non-sexists. Ok, fine, I don't disagree, it's a legitimate pov, but Amy is awesome to laugh at girls as well, she's also very good at showing in her humor the sexism in some feminist (sexist) bullshit and imo is probably for that reason my favorite feminist celebrity because she's laughing at both sides of some weird places of this debate but by keeping it very righteous as well, it's clearly fighting for the right cause but laughing at the absurd extremes.
So then I thought, ok, that's it, this is a typical bullying bullshit of Holla Forums, some self-righteous assholes who proclaims themselves above everybody else goes on a mission to attack every post, like I experienced a few weeks back, not talking in any nuance about the actual questions, just saging and attacking in unrelated manners anything that goes, because, basically, they have no life and feel entitled to being on the attack for no reasons.
But I understand, it is hard to think with subtlety so much so that for these half-humans (because they are more trolls from the swomp where the absence of life breathes in their mind) there's no other way than seeing things in black and white.
I wish them to learn to think.
