Jesus Fucking Christ Maxgale, you decided to make an April Fool's Thread, but then made it political to piss people off? What the fuck?

It's not even April Fools, as it can be interpreted as you just being sarcastic. What am I supposed to be fooled about?



I don't have enough popcorn for all this salt!

It's supposed to look like an ACTUAL apropos-of-angry-nothing Crunchyroll General Discussions SJW thread--to beat the Feminism troll-button whenever it's been left unbeaten for an entire week or month--but surprise!...It isn't!

Just accept the feelings of relief as they were intended.

And here I thought it was real before opening, and tried searching for the appropriate YouTube clip from Candid Camera: Money Talks:
Where the subject is a temp employee working as receptionist in a temp agency, watching two planted employees start arguing over the gender wage gap, not realizing that they were actually hired wrestlers, and reacting to their suddenly flipping and body slamming each other in the office...
Oh, well, if it's still on Netflix, rent it.

(Geez, I miss Candid Camera, and seems like it would be perfect viewing for Apr. 1.
But, since we don't have the above clip, here's some Japanese ones instead:

Precisely.

Maybe this'll soothe you a little bit. Maybe it'll just make you even angrier.

this is a great example of how NOT to make an April Fools thread.

It's a great example of a number of things, really.

Dude honestly starting a debate thread [on a very sensitive topic] on April Fools, is not a good idea. At all.

Here's the thing Maxgale, but you failed at making an April Fools Thread. Why? Because it's a contentious, political thread, that only ostracizes a great deal of people because in your mind, you think it is correct. Who knows, you might be correct. That I'm not worried about. What I am perturbed about is making a topic usually reserved about political discussion into a circlejerking joke. Here's an example. I met a guy who laughed at black guy for acting stupid, and expected me to laugh as well because.....:generally blacks have a lower IQ and are less refined." This is essentially the same. You're taking a topic most people would disagree upon or a great deal of people disagree upon, and then suddenly expect people to laugh along and say "he's right!" Except this doesn't have the cleverness of political cartoons, because you're not merely offering your viewpoint, but coming to a conclusion, using an opinion page from a journal that basically states both sides of the story.


In essence, you take a contentious, political topic and then expect people to agree with you like it is common sense, and that is what pisses me off, because you're essentially saying that everyone else is OBVIOUSLY wrong, despite studies on both sides attesting to either conclusion. I mean, this is essentially Dougeprofile making a thread titled "Why Obama is a good President" and then saying "Fools, he's a bad one!" Not only is the issue muddled by a variety of factors, but it hits hard for those with the opposite opinion. Use more tact.

While I agree with the point of view of the OP, I also agree with PV's point that this thread is just pointless flamebaiting.

Ya know, one of the key things about being an "anti-feminist" or "anti-SJW" or whatever, is not become entrenched in an ideology and a lot of people seem to miss this idea. If you become an unflinching ideologue, you are no better than what you are trying to oppose.
