An apt quote from Henry David Thoreau: "I know this well, that if one thousand, if one hundred, if ten men whom I could name — if ten honest men only — aye, if one HONEST man, in this State of Massachusetts, ceasing to hold slaves, were actually to withdraw from this co-partnership, and be locked up in the county jail therefor, it would be the abolition of slavery in America. For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever."
User avatar #52 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
While I would have to agree with the "what is once well done is done forever" part I do think people can try to make up for their faults but it would just take a lot more effort depending on their actions. Sticking to the scenario to slavery even when it was abolished the former slaves weren't just handed a coke and got a coupon, no most of them got to live their lives in relatively peace or at least in comparison to what they had to deal with before. Also quite a bit of slavers were forced to give land to former slaves, get jailed, and pay heavy fees for their crimes. While this obviously isn't enough to repay their past crimes it is only a small example while some slavers took justice upon themselves due to them no longer having slaves and felt they couldn't live without them. Now on another note this is like the 5-6 time we have gotten pretty damn far off the original topic and it always seems to lead to similar discussions, not that I'm complaining. After all I find these talks pretty fun.

There is no definition to being "human" or having "humanity" because it's not a concrete thing and is always changing. Everyone lives by their own standards or what they accept as truth, but I just think a wider common interest and a greater capacity for empathy would eliminate a lot of the distinction and bring groups that stand aloof from one another together in harmony. I have no idea what that common interest would be, but the romantic ideal of our species existing without quarrel is one I hold dear.
Name calling on this site is the lowest example of the world's problems, but it's a demonstration of the rudiments of hate and misunderstanding, and if the simple things can change then the complex are sure to follow.

Well I wasn't trying to single it down to this site alone as much as I was saying people in general. This site would just be an example of a micro-society in this case and us, as a site, showing change would definitely mean it is possible on a larger scale because there aren't many other groups of assholes large enough or as intolerable to change as this site with some obvious exceptions. But this is just keeping to the internet while I am well aware there are much worse groups world-wide that if ever showed change for good would cause a world-wide phenomenon.

Ha. Trust me, "humanity" and a stringent self-made morality aren't congruous.
You're right, everyone is different, everyone has their own humor and that is to be respected, but the bias in that humor usually stems from a lack of that respect. I guess the gist of what I'm saying is that we should all get along, no matter our differences.

Definitely would be nice for a change, for humanity to stop fighting one another, but that would take away a part of what some people define the word "human" as. But for the most part people being jackasses towards one another makes things interesting but of course it can go too far which leads to undesirable outcomes. Maybe people will eventually become kinder, but I doubt it will be in our lifetime.

I really enjoy organizing things. When I was a kid, I dedicated all my spare time to alphabetizing and organizing by teams my 15,000 baseball cards, then I went through them all and put their information in an Excel spreadsheet. That was... a lot of data, and I nearly finished it, but then I bungled and saved an earlier half finished version over my complete version.
User avatar #102 - heartgoldawesome (07/11/2013) [-]
I never really collected anything, but the only things I kept organized were my notes from school and stuff like that.
#103 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
Well, really I only collected stuff so I could organize it.
I like collecting pictures, though, mostly because I either put some form of work into it, like cropping it out, or... well, it's nice to feel a part of the picture, like it's not just an emoticon but an actual expression of myself. And those are valuable things to collect.

This site would just be an example of a micro-society in this case and us, as a site, showing change would definitely mean it is possible on a larger scale because there aren't many other groups of assholes large enough or as intolerable to change as this site with some obvious exceptions. But this is just keeping to the internet while I am well aware there are much worse groups world-wide that if ever showed change for good would cause a world-wide phenomenon.

An apt quote from Henry David Thoreau: "I know this well, that if one thousand, if one hundred, if ten men whom I could name — if ten honest men only — aye, if one HONEST man, in this State of Massachusetts, ceasing to hold slaves, were actually to withdraw from this co-partnership, and be locked up in the county jail therefor, it would be the abolition of slavery in America. For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever."
User avatar #52 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
While I would have to agree with the "what is once well done is done forever" part I do think people can try to make up for their faults but it would just take a lot more effort depending on their actions. Sticking to the scenario to slavery even when it was abolished the former slaves weren't just handed a coke and got a coupon, no most of them got to live their lives in relatively peace or at least in comparison to what they had to deal with before. Also quite a bit of slavers were forced to give land to former slaves, get jailed, and pay heavy fees for their crimes. While this obviously isn't enough to repay their past crimes it is only a small example while some slavers took justice upon themselves due to them no longer having slaves and felt they couldn't live without them. Now on another note this is like the 5-6 time we have gotten pretty damn far off the original topic and it always seems to lead to similar discussions, not that I'm complaining. After all I find these talks pretty fun.

Well, I know that emancipation still had a century of racial aftermath, but the meaning of the quote was that a man that leads by example shall be followed and that the only thing holding back positive change is the people themselves.

And I know bronies that are heterosexual, have families, successful jobs, and are just normal folks. Just because there are folks that fit the stereotype doesn't mean the stereotype is valid.
There's nothing wrong with being autistic or gay, but I don't see why those things should be posited as the primary characteristics of bronies.

It's just a habit of people to take what seems to be the majority of a group, whether it actually is or not, and label the entire group as so. Like how some people think all black people are lazy niggers that will rob you, that a mexican will mow your lawn for five cents, or any other stereotype. Maybe I'm just being an ass but I still like seeing things my way because it is easier to make jokes that way.

I like collecting pictures, though, mostly because I either put some form of work into it, like cropping it out, or... well, it's nice to feel a part of the picture, like it's not just an emoticon but an actual expression of myself. And those are valuable things to collect.

Everyone has their own preferences with some, like yours, being more defined. This by no means is made to be an insult, if anything a compliments because it shows you have more humanity intact than a bunch of us.

Ha. Trust me, "humanity" and a stringent self-made morality aren't congruous.
You're right, everyone is different, everyone has their own humor and that is to be respected, but the bias in that humor usually stems from a lack of that respect. I guess the gist of what I'm saying is that we should all get along, no matter our differences.
User avatar #48 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Definitely would be nice for a change, for humanity to stop fighting one another, but that would take away a part of what some people define the word "human" as. But for the most part people being jackasses towards one another makes things interesting but of course it can go too far which leads to undesirable outcomes. Maybe people will eventually become kinder, but I doubt it will be in our lifetime.
#49 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
There is no definition to being "human" or having "humanity" because it's not a concrete thing and is always changing. Everyone lives by their own standards or what they accept as truth, but I just think a wider common interest and a greater capacity for empathy would eliminate a lot of the distinction and bring groups that stand aloof from one another together in harmony. I have no idea what that common interest would be, but the romantic ideal of our species existing without quarrel is one I hold dear.
Name calling on this site is the lowest example of the world's problems, but it's a demonstration of the rudiments of hate and misunderstanding, and if the simple things can change then the complex are sure to follow.

Name calling on this site is the lowest example of the world's problems, but it's a demonstration of the rudiments of hate and misunderstanding, and if the simple things can change then the complex are sure to follow.

Well I wasn't trying to single it down to this site alone as much as I was saying people in general. This site would just be an example of a micro-society in this case and us, as a site, showing change would definitely mean it is possible on a larger scale because there aren't many other groups of assholes large enough or as intolerable to change as this site with some obvious exceptions. But this is just keeping to the internet while I am well aware there are much worse groups world-wide that if ever showed change for good would cause a world-wide phenomenon.

An apt quote from Henry David Thoreau: "I know this well, that if one thousand, if one hundred, if ten men whom I could name — if ten honest men only — aye, if one HONEST man, in this State of Massachusetts, ceasing to hold slaves, were actually to withdraw from this co-partnership, and be locked up in the county jail therefor, it would be the abolition of slavery in America. For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever."

While I would have to agree with the "what is once well done is done forever" part I do think people can try to make up for their faults but it would just take a lot more effort depending on their actions. Sticking to the scenario to slavery even when it was abolished the former slaves weren't just handed a coke and got a coupon, no most of them got to live their lives in relatively peace or at least in comparison to what they had to deal with before. Also quite a bit of slavers were forced to give land to former slaves, get jailed, and pay heavy fees for their crimes. While this obviously isn't enough to repay their past crimes it is only a small example while some slavers took justice upon themselves due to them no longer having slaves and felt they couldn't live without them. Now on another note this is like the 5-6 time we have gotten pretty damn far off the original topic and it always seems to lead to similar discussions, not that I'm complaining. After all I find these talks pretty fun.

Well, I know that emancipation still had a century of racial aftermath, but the meaning of the quote was that a man that leads by example shall be followed and that the only thing holding back positive change is the people themselves.
I guess the original topic was that stereotypes are useful for humor but detrimental to fellowship? I think we agree.

This concludes the first episode of Dashie's Deep Debates, everypony! See you next time!

Well then...

I actually don't know yet, but I'm on the edge of the fence. I'm already autistic, so I might prove anon's theories in their entirety soon.
#31 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Meh, your life decisions are yours to control but being a brony pretty much already fills the quota
#32 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
But... being a brony has nothing to do with being autistic or homosexual, those are just false associations made by biased people.
#33 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
I don't know about that, I have several brony friends and they act pretty autistic and they are actually gay. Same for which goes for me and most other bronies I come across
#34 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
And I know bronies that are heterosexual, have families, successful jobs, and are just normal folks. Just because there are folks that fit the stereotype doesn't mean the stereotype is valid.
There's nothing wrong with being autistic or gay, but I don't see why those things should be posited as the primary characteristics of bronies.
#36 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
It's just a habit of people to take what seems to be the majority of a group, whether it actually is or not, and label the entire group as so. Like how some people think all black people are lazy niggers that will rob you, that a mexican will mow your lawn for five cents, or any other stereotype. Maybe I'm just being an ass but I still like seeing things my way because it is easier to make jokes that way.
#37 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
Well, the insults are meaningless either way. I'd rather define a man by who he is than who others are.

I always wondered how many Dashie pictures you have, and how the hell do you organize them?
#99 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
I have 710 Dashie pictures (about a hundred more that I've put on the backburner for editing), and 22 folders to organize them all.
User avatar #100 - heartgoldawesome (07/11/2013) [-]
Wow. I get confused with 50 pictures of randomness in my reaction folder.
#101 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
I really enjoy organizing things. When I was a kid, I dedicated all my spare time to alphabetizing and organizing by teams my 15,000 baseball cards, then I went through them all and put their information in an Excel spreadsheet. That was... a lot of data, and I nearly finished it, but then I bungled and saved an earlier half finished version over my complete version.
User avatar #102 - heartgoldawesome (07/11/2013) [-]
I never really collected anything, but the only things I kept organized were my notes from school and stuff like that.
#103 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
Well, really I only collected stuff so I could organize it.
I like collecting pictures, though, mostly because I either put some form of work into it, like cropping it out, or... well, it's nice to feel a part of the picture, like it's not just an emoticon but an actual expression of myself. And those are valuable things to collect.
User avatar #38 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Well like I said earlier I do it solely for comedy sake, hell I wouldn't come to this site If I didn't want to make a joke or if I wanted to take anything seriously, but I don't actually expect all bronies are 25 year old gay neck beards with autism but it definitely does paint a more humorous image for me. For the most part I have your same view on seeing people for their actions but sometimes I need a break from that and how I view people won't really have much of an effect on them unless they are overly sensitive.
#41 - xgrandmoffx (07/11/2013) [-]
I like this guy. He knows how to come to a site dedicated to humor and doesn't take everything seriously.

You've just been here the entire time?...I feel violated, but in a good way
#59 - xgrandmoffx (07/11/2013) [-]
That's what you get for having a discussion on a public thread, people read it.

My face when I can positively violate people.
User avatar #60 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Meh, I get publicly violated all the time anyways. Just usually in a different way.
#61 - xgrandmoffx (07/11/2013) [-]
Maybe it's because you have a broad definition of that which it means to be violated.
User avatar #62 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
You might, just might, have a valid point.

Thanks, but it shouldn't be as rare as it is. If only others could be more care-free. But on another note continue being awesome and once again thanks for the compliment.
#39 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
Hmm, I suppose I understand, as I often facetiously throw around the words "faggot" and "OP" in the same sentence for a good laugh, though I don't often indulge in racial or stereotype-based humor.
User avatar #40 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Everyone has their own preferences with some, like yours, being more defined. This by no means is made to be an insult, if anything a compliments because it shows you have more humanity intact than a bunch of us.
#42 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
Ha. Trust me, "humanity" and a stringent self-made morality aren't congruous.
You're right, everyone is different, everyone has their own humor and that is to be respected, but the bias in that humor usually stems from a lack of that respect. I guess the gist of what I'm saying is that we should all get along, no matter our differences.
User avatar #48 - celestiasbeard (07/11/2013) [-]
Definitely would be nice for a change, for humanity to stop fighting one another, but that would take away a part of what some people define the word "human" as. But for the most part people being jackasses towards one another makes things interesting but of course it can go too far which leads to undesirable outcomes. Maybe people will eventually become kinder, but I doubt it will be in our lifetime.
#49 - dashgamer (07/11/2013) [-]
There is no definition to being "human" or having "humanity" because it's not a concrete thing and is always changing. Everyone lives by their own standards or what they accept as truth, but I just think a wider common interest and a greater capacity for empathy would eliminate a lot of the distinction and bring groups that stand aloof from one another together in harmony. I have no idea what that common interest would be, but the romantic ideal of our species existing without quarrel is one I hold dear.
