Red Eyes, Dry Mouth & "The Munchies"

(Contains cadaver dissection) I love this channel in general, but this one is great for this day

Men's Rights Activists. MGTOW. Incels.

Once fringe weirdos, now elevated to hate groups. I used to spend a certain amount of time here arguing about how toxic these assholes are. How dangerous. How despicable.

This is NOT new.

In April 2018, about 20 years after the early incel community coalesced, a college student in Toronto named Sohe Chung decided to walk to the library. It wasn’t a short walk — the subway would have been faster — but Chung and her roommate, So Ra, wanted to enjoy the sunshine.

Chung and So never made it to the library. On the way there, a van hopped the curb onto the sidewalk and slammed into pedestrians. Chung was one of 10 killed; So was one of 16 wounded.

The van’s driver was a self-described incel — but the community today would not be recognizable to those who built it decades earlier. Today’s incels are almost entirely men and boys who pollute their online forums with posts blaming women for their sexless lives. Some posters even celebrated Chung’s killer the day of the attack, calling for other incels to follow up with “acid attacks” and “mass rape.” What was once an open-minded support group had degenerated into a place where praise for mass killers was tolerated, even normalized.



On a balmy afternoon last June, dozens of demonstrators carrying “Stop the Violence” and “Rape is Rape” placards descended on the Hilton DoubleTree in downtown Detroit. They had come to protest the first-ever national gathering of the men’s rights movement, which aims to battle discrimination against men but has drawn criticism for stirring up hatred of women. Two weeks earlier, a sexually frustrated 22-year-old named Elliot Rodger had gone on a suicidal rampage in Santa Barbara, California, killing 6 people and injuring 13. He had left behind a chilling 137-page manifesto suffused with a bitter misogyny and language commonly found in men’s rights forums. “The girls don’t flock to the gentlemen. They flock to the alpha male,” Rodger wrote. “Who’s the alpha male now, bitches?” His attack ignited a firestorm online, spurring women to share their experiences of misogyny via the hashtag #YesAllWomen, and bringing major media attention to the men’s rights movement.

Their communities still thrive, and somehow.. surprise! Most of them are RW fuckheads

Speaking of German Shepard's

This is a rehab specifically for German Shepard’s, they post videos about progress.. it’s heartbreaking how animals end up there. I love this channel




On a Facebook group I follow, there is a German Shepherd in the Ukraine who was found literally frozen to the ice. The one who found that dog is rehabilitating him. That dog will always be small for his age, as he was chronically undernourished and neglected. He’s currently in leg braces, but is moving around ok.

And on that note, it’s time for me to take my beautiful girl on a walk. We are currently working on dog reactivity. She’s great with people. Pretty good with dogs, but I want her to ignore them unless I say it’s ok.
