Its like they havent even heard about poes law
huh, I never thought of it like that.
can someone explain why bugmen?
we are the bugmen, goo goo gajoob! (/s bc not actual bug)
It's the hot new manosphere insult! This is the second time I've seen it in a week, and that equals a TREND! (But remember, we're the NPCs.)
A bugman is apparently a left-leaning urbanite who fills the emptiness in his soul with fashionable conspicuous consumption, e.g. of things like Apple Watches.
Huh, TIL. Why bug specifically though, is there an obvious connection I'm missing? Maybe bc "hivemind" or something?
I thought it was because "le soibois xd" were perceived to have big eyes and smiles, making them kind of look like bugs. In the manosphere, the photoshops that they do of the "bugmen" kinda look like bugs.
I love that they hate that smile. I think of it as the Travis McElroy smile, I didn't know til they got mad about it that anyone else was doing it.
For people that complain about their facial features all day, you would think they would be a little bit more self aware when judging somebody else's
Oh, great. First anyone who disagreed was a mindless NPC, now we're insects.
Bugmen? I didn't know we were Brundlepeople uppin dis sub.
Also, some statements do need "a freaking /S at the end of it!!!!" because it's very difficult to distinguish comically absurd statements from shit incels say unironically. Yes, y'all are that fucked up.
He must suck at jokes. You're missing out on the best shit, and that's sarcasm my dude! Talking shit.
I have objectively said some terrible things...if you just read them as words on a page and took them 100% seriously. Tone, body language, inflection, everything else involved in actual human conversation is infinitely more important. That is lost over text. (One reason emojis are so huge.)
I love the /s and its prevalence on Reddit, and I laugh at the people who look down on it. Just like jokes...it's all about context, and it provides context. In a lot of subs it's not needed, because the context is already provided by the sub being a place for jokes. In subreddits on more serious topics though, it's important whether you are saying shitty things, or making fun of the people saying shitty things.
Because no matter how extremely fucked up it might be...some asshole has said them genuinely. So on subreddits on sensitive issues and/or about extreme assholes (cough cough), with the discussion of extremely serious topics (like misogyny, rape, assault, murder, etc.)...it is very seriously useful to know when someone is not being serious. But in this way...it actually opens up the door for more humor and jokes. It's like an automatic ticket to having a friend who will "get it."
I see it like waving a flag to signify you are an ally (which then also acts as a pass). I've learned first hand to always carry my safety /s! I've been burned in downvotes for my carelessness before.
Ok I'm done, that's my appreciation rant for the /s
The way I see it, most of my sarcasm relies on me doing a sarcastic tone of voice. It's really hard to convey that tone of voice over the internet so I use a little signifier.
Spoken by someone who knows nothing about human communication.
Im guessing Bc on text not seeing the bodylanguage and/or hearing the tone or the way you say something could be taken seriously, especially something incredibly ridicolous.
plus some if not most, incels and mgtow would actually post something ridicolous or some fucked up shit. Here is my simple answer for the lurking incels who have a hard time understanding simple things.
The /s is for /sarcastic. We have to put it there because sometimes, idiots tend to mistake what was very obviously a joke for a serious statement.
I used to get pretty bent out of shape over people jumping knee deep into my shit for making jokes on here, because I actually didn't understand that some of the things I was saying were also being said by incels, but not as jokes.
If incels didn't say things that were so batshit insane, sometimes even dividing their community with out outrageous it can be, there's not going to always be a clear way to determine who is commenting on IT in all seriousness; there are a lot of incel posters who comment their little whiney bullshit here.
