So recently there has been MANY slanderous forums and comments being circulated around the Vine. As new problems arise, I try and show my support. I have read about how rape victims don't 'have it so bad', have seen documents explaining ways to dominate women, as well as variable sexual abuse videos.
Among these intolerable posts include discrimination against homosexuals, black people and women in general. Why the original posters published this trash in the first place is not really of any great interest to me, there are intolerant people in this world and they will always try to poison the minds of others with their vitriolic stupidities. This is inherently no different from bullying, one member of the group doesn't like another because they are different in some way. Again their hatred for certain groups is of no concern to me, it is as misplaced to logic as intelligence is to their brains.
I know enough people here on the Vine to know that hardly anyone actually agrees with what is being said and posted. However, it seems to me that even serious people think it is appropriate to make humourous remarks about such serious issues. To them, I say "shame, on, you."
While we can't stop people from posting this stuff, what we can do is in no way accept it. If you see it and if it offends, flag it. The cowards who post this stuff often hide behind the anonymity of an alt account or a throwaway account, but if a legitimate member of the Vine posts in support of it, tell them it is not ok to say that. Do not respond to it with sarcasm, this will only allow others to bend your words to something which you didn't intend. Just take a stand and say it is wrong
Do you think that making a serious topic lightehearted is standing up for what you believe in? Of course it doesn't. What it does is show your support for abominable issues.
So, to sum up what has been said. FORGET your Comic Vine Persona. Your 'Funny-Man' act. SAY what you believe in. Tell the ASSES to shut up. tell them they have to place. BUT STAND UP FOR YOURSELF.
P.S. Thanks to a certain few people for ALWAYS standing up for what they believe in, and helping me make this.
