@The_Face_of_Boo Okay, then I clarify what I had in mind: There's only 24 hours a day so you need to prioritize. Obsessing about looks while neglecting human contact and mental health tends to lead nowhere. Also, this post had two paragraphs. I think the second one fits exactly within the concept of...

There's a difference between what people call "calling out" - expressing that certain behavior was offensive - and "cancelling" - calling for a large-scale shun. Even the "cancelling" has only as much power as there is support for it. If you find "cancelling" ...

Depends on the touch.
To me, human touch can carry more information than visual body language.

Yes, sudden light touch makes me instantly alert. A problem when living with a huggy family.

Do I act as if gym consumes an entire day of the 24 hours? Yes, based on your previous reactions to this matter, you (and few other members) you did sound that you were assuming it's taking too much time to the extent it is risking to take time from over other stuff like improvements in other areas...

Do I act as if gym consumes an entire day of the 24 hours? Actually, before I twisted my ankle, I went to (climbing) gym twice a week - and once my ankle heals enough to put on climbing shoes again, I'm going back. It's healthy and it's fun. Of course, real rocks would be better but they are unavail...

Cancel culture, also known as call-out culture, is a phrase contemporary to the late 2010s and early 2020s used to refer to a culture in which those who are deemed to have acted or spoken in an unacceptable manner are ostracized, boycotted or shunned. Ostracized, boycotted and shunned for being off...

He is a nutjob and jerk - but short and universally considered handsome, so a good counter-example to the OP assumption.

Well you need to look more into what an autism diagnosis entails. I thought you dislike the approach of "I am disabled, so I will just sit and do nothing about my life" quite strongly? To be clear: I don't find the advice "to hit the gym" wrong, especially if it resulted in impr...

What is "cancelling people"? Shows can be cancelled. People can be ostracized. Or boycotted. Or fired from work. Or banned from a community. So far, I heard the term "cancelling people" only in contexts similar to how you use it, as some vague scare. Can you explain what it means...

Errr... nope. It's just that people know about Tom Cruise but do not know about guys I fancied in high school.

Culture does not "reflect real world". Culture is a part of real world. All the things I listed and more. Terence McKenna would disagree: "We are caged by our cultural programming. Culture is a mass hallucination, and when you step outside the mass hallucination you see it for what i...

You're beating a very strange straw man while not answering actual questions. I just proved your logic invalid there, but Ok, as you wish. I claim that backlash for rudeness is something universal and weather it's "okay" or "not okay" requires case-by-case approach. You have not...
