This was in a previous entry, when I got temporarily on to the topic of passive acceptance of victimhood, but it was not meant to be the primary topic, but it was very boring. I will surreptitiously insert it here immediately before I post something slightly more interesting, so that I can know I posted it without worrying that anybody might have read and been bored by it.

Shia LaBeouf, during a performance art piece in which he would not speak, and his collaborators who arranged the exhibition report that LaBeouf was raped during the performance. By someone who had already been “whipping” him for ten minutes, and there were lots of people around, and the whipping raping psychopath was allowed to escape afterward. Am I supposed to accept that not speaking in the name of “art” is more important than calling for help, trying to protect yourself from trauma, or are people so terrified of appearing critical that they won’t ask for additional details that will make this seem less ridiculous? Did the person have a gun, even though there were guards checking for that? Was there a threat first? Piers Morgan is a jackass. His sentiment is not mine. There is no excuse for raping, I should not need to say that. And he also spoke from the perspective of inherited outrage, because that is also popular: to be the first to get offended on behalf of another party*.

But you might as well have a performance art project where you stand in the Lincoln Tunnel and then lament your plight that somebody in the world was mean enough to not drive around you. Morgan himself, on Morgan’s own tv program let Alex Jones yell at him for 20 minutes. They are both jackasses that deserve each other.

The first article ends by suggesting that LaBeouf did not get police involved because he was ashamed the he couldn’t defend himself and so kept the story to himself, except he didn’t because two other “artists” on the scene knew something was up and we know about it now well within the statute of limitations.
Is the word “rape” the problem? If we say the woman whipped Monsieur TheBeef for ten minutes, then stripped off his clothes and dumped a vat of pudding on him without raping, then would we be allowed to think that silently letting somebody do that to you, and then silently not telling your co-dorks that somebody did that, is peculiar? We have a fear now of discussing rape that we don’t have with murder, even though murder is worse.

It is not easy to sit in a room for hours, not knowing what people are going to do to you. But if you do it on purpose because you fancy yourself an “Artist” then I have difficulty feeling sympathy. Conversely, I have no sympathy for artists who put in no effort at all. Art is pretty stupid. It is one of our great fame lotteries. How many gimmicky boneheads have we made millionaires out of just because nobody with money will acknowledge that everything they do is ugly?

Rachel Dolezal, who famously passed herself as being of African descent when she was not: I have no problem with her identifying with another culture more than the one she was born into. I have a problem if she invented fake hate crimes against herself so that she could publicize that they occurred. It means she wants to be black because she finds glamour in being of a discriminated-against social class. She wants to be a victim.
She was initially discriminated against, while openly-white, because people THOUGHT she was blackish. Society laughs at that sort of claim, I think unjustly, and so Dolezal redevoted her life to accruing discrimination she could get sympathy for. We raise people to seek exploitable victimhood.

Gorf it took me two weeks to get remotely comfortable with posting this, and in that period I have added a further portion that I once again am not sure I want to post, and am so deferring for later consideration. That is life. Except I explicitly concluded it by saying I was not going to write any more depressing entries, and so until I post that depressing entry I have nothing in place to prevent me from writing more.

so is earnestly trying to appreciate wrong-headed remakes for stuff that worked without being remade, so I can at least swear off doing that.

    SJWs are toxic. Rape culture doesn’t exist. Best examples to show they are media whores who waste everyone’s time is the recent college “rape” story which was absolutely positively fabricated, it didn’t happen in any way. The police said there was 0 evidence, the frat that this supposedly happened at was closed on that day, there was no party. Total fabrication, made the news because media groups don’t check anything so they can be the first ones to air it and because not airing such a story would be SEXIST. For SJW mentality, the “accusation is the evidence”, you cannot even attempt to use logic to counter this. Other best example is that feminist who after giving some terrible rant in public had a guy who was actually interested in her (yuck) and asked her out for coffee in an elevator and she got super offended and called it rape. Here’s an idea, how about say “no”. But they can’t do that because they are socially retarded and instead of doing any work to better themselves they invent this idea of rape culture and blame other men that don’t even exist.

    Sorry for the tl;dr but I hope you see talking about this is a waste of time. SJWs are a fad and the fad is going to end soon. If it makes you feel any better, you can slightly help by not clicking on clickbait and not watching misreporting news groups on TV. They are in this business to make money and every person who leaves news groups always says the same thing – it doesn’t matter what you say, if it is true or not, as long as it gets people to watch or click. Media groups are totally fraudulent and a waste of your time.

    Ultimately everything here is a waste of time, but I agree that this one is especially wasteful.

    I knew some people who had been accused of rapey acts and had aspects of their lives ruined based on nothing, and one of them was just staying at my house for a while, so I hope you can trust that I have heard plenty about it! I considered it in the extension that I deferred. I have given up dealing with habitually offended people who speak in favor of “accusation = proof.” I have only my own tendency to doubt myself at the moment.

    Also: I’m intrigued by what you said about gimmick artists recently. Do you think that Jeff Koons is a terrible artist?

    There is a Final Fantasy 4 remake for Nintendo’s DS system, but it does not add anything significant, while it increments the difficulty in an artificial manner: giving enemies more hit points than before, making them counter every attack, and eventually making it impossible to survive attacks from, that I find decreasingly harmonious as the game proceeds.
    Of course it is from the same developers as the DS Final Fantasy 3 remake, which has NO difficulty from the middle onward, so I suppose they wanted to compensate for that.

    By gimmick artists, I was referring to the sort who just do random stupid garbage and are proclaimed as genius for it. I did not have any specific opinion on Jeff Koons; I had to look up who he was, and found that I had visited a page about him previously, for a reason I cannot remember. Maybe somebody I specifically thought was a bonehead had cited Koons as an inspiration. An image search for his art finds him often posing in front of it smiling, so if nothing else I reckon I would find him insufferable as an internet social media presence.

    When I was at the southern connecticut university, there was another artist student whose projects consisted exclusively of “rabbits” that looked like pog, with shirt buttons for eyes and exotic items for phalluses, usually holding a weapon or hanging from a noose or something. They were exhibited repeatedly about the art building, possibly other areas of the crampus, and people, some of them in the faculty, told the guy he would be a millionaire. If the person ever did anything else, it was not apparent. That, to me, is a gimmick artist. Minimal effort, absence of range, lazy incorporation of “controversial” aspect, massive promotion machine. Tossing one stupid repetitive thing into the magical lottery of recognition, again and again and again.

    It is a change from drawing faces on food, or knitting food (with faces) out of yarn, but I would not say there has been a shortage of murderous, sexually deviant lapines in sub-culture either. I might even guess that was the number 1 animal type I am presumed to not expect to kill someone by people with no imagination.

    On some level I am envious, just of the ability to get success without having to bow to other people’s whims, but I had to stop using certain websites precisely because I hated being known for one or two boring things that I did on my own.
