haha I didn't know it was vee until he paused and started talking, I think he's hilarious in his delivery of points

2017-11-21 12:08:16 UTC  

but jesus christ this yee guy hs to be trolling right? please?

2017-11-21 12:18:22 UTC  

A lot of people think so

2017-11-21 12:18:36 UTC  

I honestly couldn't finish the video because it was so... well dealing with a person who wants to justify pedophilia. As far as I'm aware, that kid is completely serious, and honestly it doesn't surprise me that much. Hearing him talk and observing his mannerisms, I can see how someone such as him who's obviously just a completely fringe social weirdo, for lack of a better term, could feel as though they're pioneering some untrodden socio-cultural revolution. Characters like him are made that much more comfortable in their dangerously deviant thoughts by the modern liberal social justice culture of explaining away everybody's imperfections.

2017-11-21 12:19:18 UTC  

But I think we'd all like to believe he's just making it up.

2017-11-21 12:20:22 UTC  

Even so, pushing such an "agenda", even as a troll, could lead to unwanted consequences for society.

2017-11-21 12:20:52 UTC  

Right. Trolling can be just as harmful as genuine stupidity.

2017-11-21 12:21:14 UTC  

Or genuine whatever you're pretending to be as a troll.

2017-11-21 12:21:45 UTC  

Yeah. There are certainly elements in Hollywood who'd like something like what Yee is advocating to become acceptable.

2017-11-21 12:22:18 UTC  

What's the chance of him being feed bullshit by someone else?

2017-11-21 12:22:45 UTC  

I suppose it's there, but I don't care to speculate

2017-11-21 12:23:17 UTC  

You're thinking maybe he's read some book or watched some video that sent him down this path?

2017-11-21 12:23:57 UTC  

Yup

2017-11-21 12:24:14 UTC  

Or you're saying someone is directly manipulating him to act as a proxy for their own purposes?

2017-11-21 12:24:30 UTC  

I haven't seen the video tbh, I should watch it today

2017-11-21 12:25:08 UTC  

The first option, he might have seen a thing or 2, and convinced himself of it

2017-11-21 12:25:44 UTC  

Reminds me that I need to watch Logicked's video on it

2017-11-21 12:27:38 UTC  

Sure, it's possible. It would seem such an ideological stance could only be perpetuated by a pretty staunch echo chamber and motivated reasoning. In the video he mentions how there are supposedly innumerable stories of sexual relationships between adults and children where both parties are satisfied or pleased with the interaction.

2017-11-21 12:28:25 UTC  

So he's certainly consumed these stories or at least an abstract reference to them, such as his own, from somewhere.

2017-11-21 12:33:13 UTC  

I'm sure any fan of freud would have a lot to say about a kid like him.

2017-11-21 12:44:19 UTC  

I would like to believe it's just being naive and not thinking critically enough. It strikes me more as he (and a lot of the other pedo-defenders I've seen) don't seem to understand that children just aren't mentally or emotionally capable of consenting, regardless of how much they feel it was okay once they're adults or how much they seem okay with it as children. It's damaging on levels that aren't always immediately obvious, but they don't seem to consider any of these things and think there might be exceptions to all of them when there really isn't.

2017-11-21 13:22:07 UTC  

I guess, some of them deliberately don't want to admit the

2017-11-21 13:22:15 UTC  

That *

2017-11-21 13:23:13 UTC  

I get defending it between a 16 years old and a adult

2017-11-21 13:23:30 UTC  

But between a kid, with 10 or 8 years? Nope

2017-11-21 13:23:46 UTC  

It's the same thing as the hormones suppressors to kids

2017-11-21 13:24:23 UTC  

I feel it's like they're taking *too* technical a stance with it. Like, "children are just younger people, we should give them the same options as an adult"

2017-11-21 13:24:55 UTC  

When anybody who knows the first thing about kids, and teens too, knows they're vastly different from an adult in so many ways.

2017-11-21 13:27:59 UTC  

And easy to convince too

2017-11-21 13:28:15 UTC  

Just got back from voting in a local election, voted for 2x 60+ year old men due to them being honest on their pro-science stance towards "alternative" medicine. Patriarchy +1

CONSTITUTION For The New Socialist Republic In North America http://www.revcom.us/socialistconstitution/SocialistConstitution-en.pdf

2017-11-21 17:26:14 UTC  

By Bob Avakian

2017-11-21 17:28:29 UTC  

that name

2017-11-21 17:28:31 UTC  

rings a bell.

2017-11-21 17:45:23 UTC  

leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party and founder of Refuse Fascism

2017-11-21 17:46:16 UTC  

Also this is an extremely painful thing to listen to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YdFlKaJv4g

2017-11-21 17:49:39 UTC  

this fucking guy is so unbelievably ill-informed it hurts

2017-11-21 17:51:01 UTC  

Sargon said he will do a video on it

2017-11-21 17:54:10 UTC  

this really makes me wonder how many other times this sort of thing has happened

2017-11-21 18:00:15 UTC  

I don't get why this guy says he doesn't want to call Richard Spencer a leader of the alt-right because that would "give him too much legitimacy". Why wouldn't you want to call somebody exactly what they are to deal with them appropriately, *especially* if you're recognizing the authority that they have? I'm not gonna skirt around calling Bob Avakian the leader of RevCom, that's exactly who he is and that's exactly why he's rephrehensible. However, I think I can answer my own question. They make it a constant practice to not call people what they really are, ceaselessly accusing Jordan Peterson of all manner of absurdities.
