Here we have a perfect example of how youth aren't mature enough to make ANY life-altering decisions, nor wise enough to be able to vote. They make spur of the moment decisions based on how they feel at the time, so they are incredibly easy to manipulate. I grieve for this kid's family.

The problem is not everyone matures at the same rate. This kid, while 17, clearly was not as mature as other 17 year olds. It happens, I knew one when I was a teen who was 21 but may as well have been 14 or so.

Poor kid. Of course, any crime happening to men and boys will be completely ignored, as is customary.

There was a whole bullshit crusade about gold digging whores being ripped off by men who "exploited" them.

That looks like a girl pretending to be a boy to me. They are from California too. I'm not sure what to think about this beyond it being sad. 🤔

Why would any dude pay to prevent a photo from being released? Dudes literally give away dick pics.

Very fishy. Here in Cali private school girls get caught sending cooch pics around like it's nothing.. The worst that happens is they transfer to another school.

I was a suicidal teenager. I had pretty shitty parents. You wouldn't know it from the outside. Basically nobody did even if I straight up told them what was going on. My parents were nice calm Christian people with revered jobs and they both had cancer so everything they did was excused.

Even after 3 suicide attempts basically nobody did anything that mattered. I just kept getting told "alot of boys your age struggle you'll do better later".

Probably like this boy got told.

For all the talk of mental health most schools do, almost EVERYTHING they do makes everyone's mental health worse.

I honestly feel like they WANT you to die. You're an impediment to them earning an easy paycheck where you sit down and shut up and they talk talk talk about shit they know NOTHING about while promising you that you'll like the next prison camp better.

I fucking hate teachers. I'm sure some good ones exist, just like good doctors. But I've never fucking met one. At least not at a public school and I went to one of the best, wealthiest high schools in the country.

At 29 I recognize that having pics like this float around is really no big deal. I probably have a bunch of REALLY embarrassing pictures of me naked doing stupid shit floating out there now from a few years when I really acted pretty crazy and hadn't healed myself.

If for SOME reason I'd be blackmailed over them I'd probably just laugh and say "go ahead" anyone that gives a fuck about such things is someone I probably don't want in my life anyway and so I'm being done a favor by knowing who these people that would turn so easily on me are.

I mean unless the pics were something like disgusting or disturbing that I SHOULD be ostracized for, but they're not.

Maybe this guy's was I don't know, but prob not.

Like EVEN IF he was dressed as a girl or something you'd think he would play it off as a joke or something. Unless he IS a girl and that's what the picture actually shows ..

That would be ... complicated. But even a trans person with the right support group this shouldn't have happened to. And just shoving "you're going to be okay" or "you are right to be who you are" I'm sorry is just NOT support. Telling people they're fine as they are when they're definitely fucking not is not support. I'm not saying someone should've beat the trans out of them. But letting them be so in the closet that ANY exposure means suicide? That their "real self" is whatever "false self" they decided!? You killed them. You let them hide themselves until they had no self left that could be okay as anything but their false self. That's not suicide. It's spiritual murder. That seems true to me whether you agree that people should be allowed to be trans or not, and yet "pro-trans" people constantly abuse and box each other in in this same unhealthy way - kinda why I think being trans isn't healthy at all but that's another long discussion.

As a teenager, I would have put even a faceless limp dick in that category - worth being ostracized over and I would have killed myself to avoid the discussion of why it happened at all. I had ZERO sense of self that could overcome such a thing and still call myself a good person.

I'm just saying you're right, this reaction seems extreme and there's almost definitely something else going on.

Aristotle or one of those other old guys who were accused of being geniuses observed that the only question of insanity is suicide, that all else which Man does may be rationalized one way or another. So the poor kid was crazy, yeah scammer bad but weak-minded kid was crazy.

Of course the same old genius guy also claimed that everything Man does is simply marking time until we can be practicing making tricycle motors so there's that I guess.

Reality is self correcting, sometimes it takes awhile.

THIS is why I'm ALWAYS hopeful about our long term future.

As long as we don't accidentally blow up the fucking planet or gain-of-function ourselves out of existence ...

The TRUTH WILL PREVAIL .... eventually.

If you're REALLY LUCKY and work REALLY HARD you might see a very slight shift in the right direction. And given how completely FLAWED AND EVIL humanity can be ... that's PRETTY FUCKING AMAZING.

God lives!

More people today understand Aristotle than when he lived, over 2000 years later. That’s remarkable. You have to remember there have always been “dummies,” including in Ancient Greece. Up until about a 100 years ago, even just achieving access to the level of education necessary to understand him was out of the cards for 99% of humans. The fact you can spend an afternoon reading his philosophy and ideas instantaneously with nothing but an internet connection is mindblowing, and supremely positive. Western education should start with the classics imo, including works in Koine like the Bible.

All fair points.

Perhaps people like Jordan Peterson are much more like Plato etc then we give him credit for.

Perhaps he will literally be studied in 2000 years and people will be in awe the same way we are to people like Plato

2
potbelliedgoblino 2 points ago +2 / -0

The crazy thing is Peterson is essentially resynthesizing Nietzche and Jung who were resynthesizing medieval philosophers’ resynthesis of Rome’s synthesis of Ancient Greek thought. Which is not to take away from any of them, but speaks to the deep that the ancient Greeks were able to access and write down, remembering, too, that their own syntheses were done on that which passed to them orally.

Since when are boys ashamed of their bodies? It took parents of my generation six years to convince us to put on clothes. Perverts sexualizing children has destroyed them.
