Meanwhile, in r/ForeverAlone (AKA, the sub for people with supposedly the lowest/no standards--"If she has a pulse, I'll date her!")...
1. Why you complaining, then?
Jeez. Would think he'd be relieved not to have to deal with disgusting whales.
2. Just like your lovely thread showed us super ugly fat b****es our place on this Earth.
Great feeling, isn't it?
3. You might think that attitude of horrendous disgust toward certain members of the opposite sex doesn't show IRL, but trust me, unless you're some kind of super-skilled social chameleon (and obviously, most users in this sub are not), it shows. It's like a cigarette stink you can't get out of your clothes. You can't smell it because you're so used to it, but others can catch a whiff here and there. You just assume they're reacting to your self-perceived ugliness...
4. If I see the phrase "just world fallacy" one more time, I'm going to puke. Unfortunately, the male mod there tosses it out like every other comment. It and that stupid 20/80 or 80/20 rule or whatever the hell it is account for like 80% of the "logic" there.
I can imagine what the upvote/downvote ratio and comments would be like if someone of a different gender (say...me) had posted that last comment...the whole thread would have been locked or deleted by now. (Ostensibly because, according to the male mod, "This type of thread will just attract brigades from r/AskReddit, so I better remove it for our own safety." When there is exactly zero
evidence of such things ever happening, and the only "brigading" is from hateful members of r/ForeverAlone...whose own comments are often left standing when such threads are removed/locked.)
Yep...cheerful joking definitely would NOT have been the reaction if, say, I
had made that comment, instead of OP.
Male mod has since replied to the thread. Only one comment (the original "super ugly fat b****es" one) has been removed. Didn't even remove OP's second reference to "super ugly fat b****es." And of course, male mod had no problem with the thread itself. Or with the OP's hypocrisy, which, if I had started the thread, would've earned me the label of "not a true
That first comment breaks the sub rule against inflammatory comments that generalize any group of people, including the genders. Male mod doesn't mind. He also doesn't mind "jokingly" parroting hated memes which are also against sub rules. (Interestingly...male-oriented advice such as "Just shower," "Just get your hair cut," and "Just work out" is expressly criticized/forbidden in a rules thread and any time a "normie" "brigades" the sub to say it...while female-oriented advice such as "Just lose weight," "Just wear makeup," and "Just get on Tinder" is not
forbidden, and is widely accepted.)
