#28 - Ironic coming from someone who calls themself a Brony  [+] (11 replies) 09/04/2016 on Schooltrips these days +10

Only to get other people to cringe though.

MLP doesn't sexualize anything, though.
Anime sexualizes little girls. On the other hand, the only sexualization that occurs in the MLP community comes from bronies themselves, not from the MLP show.

You're watching a little girl's show? And you're an adult?

Obviously no point in arguing with you, I'm not a big Anime or a big MLP fan, but I don't see a point in bashing one or the other. Personally I find watching MLP and calling yourself a Brony more childish and immature considering it's a show made for little kids while some anime is designed for an older youth audience, while still not an adult it's still more mature to my eyes

there are also anime that doesn't sexualize little kids you're mainly focusing on the ones that validate your point

"There are also ones that don't sexualize little girls"

Yeah, and those almost always get pushed under the rug. Anime is not some pure industry.
It, like all other industries in the entertainment biz, needs to make money. They do this by garnering interest. And what better and more efficient way to garner the interest of hundreds of thousands (sometimes even millions) of sexually-deprived men looking to please their primal brain by watching lolis or whatever the fuck they're called.

At least with MLP, you have to look past the lack of "sexy little girls" and actually appreciate the show for its good story, characters, and plot.

While competently made, MLP doesn't offer much of anything that several cartoon shows haven't done already before it.
It's a kid's show with kid sensibilities and moral lessons. It's nothing even close to a masterpiece, Batman TAS was way better and featured a hell of a lot more mature themes.
You're only into it because it's considered 'cool' by the beta faggot Internet autismo squad.
Bite me.

I see the argument here. Personally, I prescribe a good 5 hour dose of doom 2016 for both parties involved, then resume the discussion after your shared doses of testosterone and see where it leads.

Ugh....okay. First some assumptions:
1.) His first job was in 1979
2.) He graduated high school at 18 and got his first job.
3.) He was born in 1961.
In 1979 women with high school educations earn less than they did in 2002. Men earned slightly more. Just over $700 per week vs. just over $600. 36k verse 31k.

But you have to consider the educational attainment of the workforce. High school degrees aren't all the same. In 1930, having a high school degree meant you were the shit. Top 30% easy. In 1979, entering the workforce with a high school degree meant you'd achieved more than most people in the workforce. In 2002, high school graduation had been devalued because of an emphasis on education (although, the graduation rates were similar, they'd been rising steadily since 20s or so).

Now high school is breeze and idiots who can't read or do algebra are graduating with high school diplomas.

Then you've got taxes. Our generation likes to ignore this because it paints a very different picture: taxfoundation.org/article/us-federal-individual-income-tax-rates-history-1913-2013-nominal-and-inflation-adjusted-brackets

A single guy in 1979 making 36k has a marginal tax rate of 49.0%.
A single guy in 2002 making 31k has a marginal tax rate of 27.0%

The truth is, after taxes, they'd both have just about the same left over. And inflation adjusted dollars, which is what we're comparing, is about the relative purchasing power. They'd both be able to buy the same shit. You'll also note that college graduates today make quite a bit more than college graduates in 1979.

So - women across the board are better off now. Men with college degrees are better off now. Men with 'some college' are so close it doesn't matter. Men with a high school diploma or less are worse off.

It's hardly the super bleak situation the MEMEs would have you believe. Unemployment rates are tricky, but there was a huge spike in the late 1970s and early 1980s that was just as high (higher actually) than the 2008 crap we dealt with.


Let's say our guy buys his first house at 22. That's pretty sweet. But remember, he's been working for four years. Now, the median age of a college graduate is 23. So really, he's no different than a 27 year old buying a house. But whatever.

In 1984 - when he was 22....and he went to buy his house....a 30 year fixed mortgage was 14.67%. FOURTEEN POINT SIX SEVEN PERCENT. I bought my house at 4%.

In 1984 the median home price was $79,900. Adjusted for inflation it is 182k. Now it is 300k.

Wow. So at first glance, that's pretty terrible for us now, right? Let's just say you need to come up with 115k more for the same house, right? Because the median is ~115k higher? Let's assume this is new construction.

Median new home size in 1984: 1600 sf ft.
Median new home size in 2015: 2520 sf ft.

HOLY SHIT. Right off the bat, we're getting a lot more house. Paying 64% more for 57% more house. Well, that actually sounds pretty damn fair. BUT WAIT. What about that interest rate? Both put 20% down.

1984 - you'd borrow 145k (infl. adjusted) for 1600 sq ft. at 4%
2015 - you'd borrow 240k for 2520 sq ft. at 14%

Guess who pays more? 1984 - BY A SHIT TON. Even after including property taxes which have gone up, it's really not even a contest. I'm out of characters but you can Google all of this data, it's out there. The 1980s were not this glorious utopia for new high school graduates. College grads are better of today than then. Interest rates are so low you can afford more than your 1980s counterpart could, and you'll get a nicer house.

The truth is, things are actually not bad at all for new graduates now, as a group. Life is hard. It's been harder before, it will be harder in the future.

this meme is about baby boomers. sounds like you are thinking about gen x
#140 - robuntu (08/30/2016) [-]
I'm using the dates given in the meme.....don't know what other dates I could possible think it was referring too.

And it doesn't matter *which* generation you pick, the objective truth is that people right now are not substantially worse off, as a whole. Go back another decade or so and you've got to deal with the very real chance of being forced to *go to war*.

I'm not saying there aren't problems now, there are. And I'm not saying life is easy. And again, I'm using the dates that were explicitly given.....

screw me - I inverted the %s for the mortgage. Still, you get my point.

1984 - you'd borrow 145k (infl. adjusted) for 1600 sq ft. at 14%
2015 - you'd borrow 240k for 2520 sq ft. at 4%

Go to any online mortgage calculator and compare payments.
1984 - 2,156 per month
2015 - 1,146 per month

Not even close. And the income, as shown above, is so damn close. In terms of being able to buy a house, people today are LEAPS AND BOUNDS better off than people in 1984.

But I still hear recent grads complaining about how they can't afford their dream house. I dunno what to tell them.
