zaidapdx replied to your post: I read this article where the education system is…IF THERE WERE NO TEACHERS THE WORLD WOULD BE FULL OF UNEDUCATED BIGOTS! HOW DO PEOPLE NOT REALIZE THIS.
I DON’T KNOW
the example they gave in the article was some medieval history instructor and people are like “well there’s really no need for those” or something idk it’s duMB
Oh, yes, because understanding the past doesn’t give us insight on current cultural trends and behaviours, and most certainly doesn’t help prevent pandemics and the like. Even excluding that, there’s definitely no reason to enrich oneself through the study of the human condition reflected in the written word, song or art.
Granted, I understand certain fields have limited application outside of academia more than most, but for a supposedly enlightened society we certainly seem to take education, and what it actually means, for granted.
If you’re a “nice guy” to a girl up until you realize she doesn’t want to date you, then go on about how she’s a cold shrew that friendzoned you and how no girls date nice guys, like, nah mate, girls do date nice guys. You just aren’t a nice guy. You’re a passive aggressive beta with internalized misogyny and a serious victim complex.
excuse me but since when did music become this big competition about taste and stuff why can’t we just listen to what we want to if you like bieber go listen to him if you like led zeppelin go ahead listen to them if you like my chem go ahead listen to them fuck if you like sex sounds made by whales go ahead listen to it music is supposed to be fun

I hate it when people are like “oh it’s totes okay for me to insult/discriminate against x-class/race because we’ve been oppressed!”
that’s not how equality works and that’s not how it’s going to work whether you like it or not
that’s just going to piss even more people off
equality is when everyone gets the same length of time-out because they pushed some kid down the slide the same way
not “well the victim pushed the bully down so it must be revenge!”
that’s just called being an asshole and nothing really gets fixed that way
