Open discussion: Things I learned from TV

Over on Tumblr, there’s a great thread going on about what we learn about life and people by watching TV. Since this is Ars Marginal, and this is the sort of thing we talk about, why don’t we continue the conversation here?

Here are a few things I learned:

  1. Bisexual means lesbian until the straight White guy comes along.
  2. Only 2 types of people talk about race: neo-Nazi skinhead KKK mofos and paranoid militant Black people with chips on their shoulders.
  3. All lesbians want sperm donors to make babies. Failing that, adopting a Chinese girl would do.
  4. Disabled people don’t have lives like the rest of us. They exist to be symbols of the human spirit.
  5. Everyone in NYC has glamorous media jobs that pay enough to live in huge Manhattan apartments that don’t have mice or roaches.

What did you learn from TV?

  1. White teenagers can say the most brow-raising things to their parents, then storm off, slam the door, etc, and not be punished. Even if they do get punished, the worst they get is a week or two’s grounding.

  2. Black men are huge cowards who either rap or play basketball, unless you’re Mr. T, who can never back up their words… unless you’re Mr. T.

    All latinos are Mexicans, and illegal immigrants and can’t do much on their own.

    Black women can’t talk without tilting and tossing their head from side to side to show off how much attitude they have.

    All Americans in the South are racist, ignorant rednecks who carry way too many guns and shoot them off into the air at the drop of a hat… and General Lee is a hero to be celebrated.

  3. East Asian women can only be sexually satisfied by white cock.

    If you’re a white guy and you meet an East Asian martial artist, he (yes, HE) will teach you all of his people’s magical fighting secrets because you’re the chosen one. However, if said martial artist wants to kill you, rest assured that this is because you’re the chosen one. When this is the case, simply wait for another martial arts master to come and teach you all of his people’s magical fighting secrets so that you can save us with your whiteness.

    The word “kung fu” literally means “martial arts”.

    Thailand is a haven for drugs, prostitutes, ladyboy prostites (because thai transwomen are Exotic +), Buddhist temples dispensing wisdom for white people, and elephants.

    All transwomen seek to trick straight men into having sex with them. Having sex with one is THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING. They also all have penises. If they don’t, it’s still THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING. if you had sex with them because they used to be men.

    • Speaking of white people being the only ones that have superpowers, they are also the only ones who gets to be vampires. That’s because vampires the most beautiful thing.

      Angels are also all white for the same reason.
