110% agree.

This is the kind of thing I was intending to bring up in my reply to Cainad's thread, if I ever get around to writing about it.

I was under the impression that everyone knew R. Kelly is a terrible, terrible person for many reasons.

Which makes this make little sense to me. I'm marginally happier with confusion than a facebook account however.

I'm guessing something has happened on facebook?

That's not surprising about RWHN, though it is pretty depressing.  I mean, I was depressed just reading him here, entire sites full of people like him....urgh.

Yeah, there was a joke thread on TDS2014 about "R Kelly Day", and Nigel was joking around about it.  Pixie took offense, and things got a little hairy.

Though how anyone would think that Nigel was being serious was beyond me entirely.

Naw.  Pixie is a sweetie.  She's just trapped in a narrative.

A lot of them can vote as well. Remember that when you next hear about how great democracy is.

And according to RWHN they have influence over policy makers (beyond being able to vote them out)

No, according to RWHN, RWHN is a policy maker.   :lulz:

Yeah, Pixie's been around forever. It wasn't some kind of power play.
It was pretty dumb, though.

Oh holy shit, yes, yes, yes.

Which is also exactly the point of R. Kelly Month... it's making fun of the guy and anybody who sincerely admires him. And it's fucking funny. The guy who said "I peed in a bottle and threw it through the window of a schoolbus, that has to be worth some R Kelly points, right?" had me rolling.

If you can't make fun of people who are genuinely repulsive human beings, if you can't make THEM the butt of the joke, what is the use of humor as a social tool?

The fact that some people are so desperately looking for directions to point their fingers in doesn't mean that the "racism chair" is racist. People who disregard everything they know about others in pursuit of lodging accusations and being offended are wearing king-size filters that cause them to miss a whole lot, all the time.

Same here, I think.

Besides that, I'm thinking certain members of my family will sleep better in their tidy Christian beds not knowing me that well.

Pro-tip on making everyone you meet in the uk angry/offended/scared-that-you're-going-to-rape-them: Sing "Blurred Lines".

Some girl actually stopped talking to me, when I told her that I like the song  :lulz:
innit safe, fam?
