    I absolutely hate the love for revenge violence. Stuff like celebration people running over protestors in their cars because they were forced to stop on the road. Or bleeding out after someone got shot when they robbed a store.

    This includes that fact that you can basically guarantee every thread contains at least one comment claiming “play stupid games, win stupid prizes”

      I haaate “equal rights means equal lefts.”

      These dudes fantasize about a woman picking a fight with them so they can beat the shit out of one and have it be socially acceptable.

        I saw one of those just before I left Reddit. A woman slapped a guy with her flat hand (they didn’t show you why) and he knocked her unconscious. And Reddit was celebrating the guy 🤮.

          Riiight? Like, women shouldn’t be hitting people for sure and there should be consequential. But men celebrating that women getting knocked out gives me the creeps. Honestly, if it was anyone substantially larger knocking out someone so much weaker of any gender or age it would be wrong. Imaging a body builder knocking out an old man or a small boy? Very wrong. I think everyine could agree there. But reddit just loves to celebrate this specific brand if violence on women.

      While that would be ideal and it makes me feel a bit gross when I catch myself thinking the same things sometimes, it’s inevitable. Retribution is one of the easiest ways to exact a punishment, violent or not.

      people can be experiencing critical emergencies in those vehicles, hoping to get somewhere in time.

      i cant encourage people to run over others with their vehicles, but we also cant pretend like highway protests dont invite other major problems

        If your protest isn’t disrupting shit, you are doing it wrong.
        For example, I really really hate broken windows, but when French go smash shit on Champs-Élysées they are doing the right thing (most of the time).

        Protestors generally move for emergency vehicles and drivers who call out to them and say they have an emergency themselves.

          What protestors are those? Because here in Latin America you are screwed if my right to protest is getting superceded by your right to free circulation.
