Do you think I am racist for not appreciating Beyonce's music or other black celebrities who have inflated egos and personalities?
I am a huge fan of rock and metal some of my favourite bands have or had black singers, guitarists and drummers etc. I also like lots of black actors and actresses too. However what I can not stand is when the likes of Beyonce complain about not winning a Grammy and call it being racist. Then you have all these people who claim to support the Black Lives Matter movement but sit there in their mansions. If they cared about real issues of everyday black people they would donate some of their money to these causes instead of bitching and moaning about being miss treated in the entertainment industry. If we start handing out token awards to people just on race and not merit isn't that more racist?
I mean take the band Linkin park (RIP Chester) they had / have a black rapper / singer. They didn't care about recognition or winning awards. Heck they didn't even care what the fans thought when they strayed away from the nu metal sound.
It's just I find that the more famous you get the more recognition you think you deserve. Maybe the music industry doesn't want to award a Grammy to someone who sings about shaking their *** getting groupies and smoking weed. That and winning an award just to sing a song that 20 people had to write for you, is that fair?
So my question is because I don't care for trashy black celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kanye west, Niki MInaj, Cardi B etc does that make me a racist?3 AnswersCelebrities1 month ago
Do dating sites use facial recognition or the looks of a person to determine if you can match up with them for free without paying? ?
On Blendr for example I see it all the time that I can not message attractive looking women because the app tells me I am not a match. Thing is it tells you that you have like 6 things in common. Yet the women it does allow me to message are all average looking women or women who are around 10 years older or more. That and they usualy have less in common with me than the good looking ones.
Know I am not purely after looks just want to stress that I prefer interests and personality. However it seems that the app likes to match you with unattractive women who have little in common with you. Some might slip through the net if their profile photo is a bit blurred or their other photos are better shot. I am curious if these site have that technology or do they have moderators who go through peoples profile photos and grade them on their looks and if they will be stuck behind a paywall. Which also hinders the chances for women as most men initiate the first response. Surely there is some legal ground here that they shouldn't be able to lock women because of some algorithm or facial recognition software to determine if we match or not. Even if you like the women they then have to like you back, kicker is you have to then pay to see who liked you or play a long winded game game of Tinder. Then you eventually run out of likes for the day before the person you made out from the blurred photo the used to hide who likes you shows up.Singles & Dating1 month ago
Does anyone know how to disable haptic feed back on YouTube app for Android when scanning a video timeline?
I have noticed an annoying new feature where when you seek a video in its timeline it will vibrate and give haptic feedback on your phone when you move over scene markers on a youtube video. It will only do it on new videos where people have put video markers on the timeline, like in the photo.
Does anyone know if this feature can be disabled or is it another forced change like the comments being at the top?Software2 months ago
I am a huge Power/ folk Metal fan as long as it is mostly clean vocals. I love it when bands do acoustic songs that sound very traditional and folky.
Does anyone know any bands that have that traditional celtic/nordic folk vibe?
Maybe you can suggest an album by a Power / Folk Metal band that is solely acoustic.
I will also accept any suggestions to clean vocal power and folk metal.
My fave bands are
I have listed some songs of the type of sound I am on about. Janet Devlin - My Confessionalhttps://youtu.be/r8RS001EBw8Nightwish
- The Islanderhttps://youtu.be/--tFFz44zvcAuri

Now I want to stress not all adult models and content creators are like this.
How ever there is this one model I would like to get your opinions on. She starts out with a top on camera zoomed in so we just get a shot from her chest upwards. She will have a goal that says "Topless" x amount of tokens. 70% of the time she will log off about 200 hundred tokens left to go before end of a ridiculously high tip goal. If she ends up making it what she does is she will zoom the camera in closer remove her top. In effect you just see the top half of her breasts no nipples nothing. Then if she does go to grab stuff etc she covers them with her hands. like she won't allow her fans who paid her tokens to see. Sometimes deciding out of nowhere to put her bra back on.Also if you know anything about cam girls there is a trend of inserting a vibrating sex toy that reacts to tips. kicker is you can not even see if she has it inserted in her it could be on her bed and she just pretends to have orgasms.My point is do you think Webcam girls like this are toxic and pollute the ones who actually care about fans and deliver us good content. instead of tricking guys into OnlyFans accounts where they post a close up of a bra and expect $10 a month.I know women do not owe us guys anything and feminists cry all the time that women are exploited in the sex industry. Yet thousands of women want sugar daddy's, expect to be paid to sit in front of a camera doing nothing. What are your opinions guys?5 AnswersOther - Entertainment2 months ago
My view is that he was doomed from the start and Israel was using this trial as a way to get the last laugh politically.
They knew they were going to sentence him to death no matter what. Even if this defiant evil man showed some remorse for his crimes and the crimes of Nazi Germany. I think a trial in Poland or his home country Germany would have been better. Then again Germany at this time was releasing war criminals they had sentanced earlier and probably didn't want anything more to do with the war. In decades later they gave prison sentances to war criminals who might have got the death sentance in trials immediately following the war.
I am apposed of the death penalty however I understand why so many Nazis where sentanced to it. However most who got life imprison instead where released during the 60's anyway. They could have easily been sentanced to death had they been on trial in other countries than Germany. So it's a thin line between giving someone death or allowing them to be in a jail cell thinking about what they did. Even though they probably did not expect them to be serving only a quarter of their sentances.9 AnswersHistory3 months ago
I get aching painful legs at night in on or both legs that feels like growing pains what do you think it could be?
Since I was young I often get periods where I can not sleep because my legs ache really badly. Almost feels like growing pains you got when you were a child.
Usually it's when I have done strenuous things that day. Like yesterday I went for my daily exercise for a 2 hour walk.
I have read it could be restless leg syndrome.
It's just annoying because I go to bed thinking it's because I am tired, yet I struggle to sleep because of this. It feels more like an annoying throbbing than am actual pain. Also tried rubbing it and taking pain meds but they don't really help.

Why do most music channels on YouTube not allow you to view all videos, along with sorting by recently uploaded?
Is this YouTubes way of forcing you to watch only the videos with the most views. I mean If a band I like releases a new music video it will show up in my subscriptions for recently uploaded videos. Yet you go on the band or artists channel page, it just shows random music videos from 10 years ago etc. Why are music channels different to regular ones. I don't go and watch Markiplier to see his page forcing me to watch a video for a game that was released 10 years ago. Am I not allowed to find new music videos then? Is this YouTubes way dictating the most popular songs.
Well of course a song that was released 15 years ago is going to have more views. Surley this is not helping bands grow if you fail to promote any new material. Am I missing something or is there a genuine reason why YouTube doesn't allow music channels to have there most recent videos on there YouTube channel homepages.2 AnswersYouTube5 months ago
Why do feminists and black people complain about being excluded from Oscar and other film award nominations. ?
My view is that if you nominate them just for diversity and then a black actor or actress looses you will still be seen as racist. The same goes for women directors etc you would have to give them the win to not be seen as a sexist. It's like your giving them a token nomination even though the judges know they where not as good as others nominated. I am all for diversity when it has merit. Its like people of Asian culture do not complain they get no nods. I also fear one of these days will have be nominating transgender people just to shut up society. If all these are merited fair enough. However just to nominate a film that critics hated and audience liked it because it had a cast of black actresses who are liked because they are celebrities.2 AnswersOther - Society & Culture7 months ago
Do you think woman knowingly use their sexuality for the own personal and financial gain over us men? ?
People claim woman are hypersexualised and that any who do anything remotely sexy is all being forced by us men. That they have no choice. Yet alot of women do it out of free choice.
Plus alot of women use their bodies and sexuality to happily take advantage of men and do it knowingly for money gain.
Take for example a webcam model I know of. She goes online puts a high token goal that says topless at 2000 tokens, equivalent to over £100.
Usualy she will reach around 200 tokens off the goal then logs off the cam site. So people have just paid to watch a woman with clothes on stare at a camera and occasionaly push he breasts up.
If she somehow does reach the high goal she will take her top off and zoom the camera in so it's just implied and you can not see anything. But you know she is topless.
That happens with alot of webcam, onlyfans, Snapchat premium models they know men are gulible and use it to their advantage.
That's something us men do not have the luxury of doing, selling our bodies. Mostly because when have you seen a woman willingly pay for sexual services. Never because a man will always want free sex a women will only want it if she is drunk with a partner or doing it as an art project which is very rare.5 AnswersGender Studies7 months ago
Know I wanna stress I am not shallow in the slightest and prefer personality to looks. However on dating apps I can only match with the Average looking women. Yet all the ones who look more attractive seem to not be able to match unless you pay. Is there some hidden algorithm that scans photos and determines if you are attractive. Because I doubts its to do with matches on interests etc. Mostly because I get women who match on several interests but locks me from chatting to them without a match even though we have same interests. Yet someone who is not as good looking has nothing in common with me but it let's me match them. It is a fact that they do this to get you to pay for tokens to message them.

I am predominantly a Rock and Metal guy. When listening to pop I have found that modern pop, rap etc realises on awkward pauses and edgy silence. When you take an artist like Little Mix, Cardi B etc they add these weird pauses in the songs to make them sound more edgy or hip. Almost like the music gets forced upon you, that they are saying look at me I am much better than you people who are listening. It is a cringe worthy tactic to make artists especially female ones seem more powerful. It grates me because it is a slight pause that ends suddenly for edge factor when if it was a millisecond longer it wouldn't annoy me as much. What are your opinions, do you think producers and artists do this technique on purpose?3 AnswersRock and Pop1 year ago
Why do celebrities and sporting events endorse Saudia Arabia when they have a huge human rights problem?
Why does the world of celebrity and sports etc all perform in Saudia Arabia? I get that they do it for the money. However when you get big female artists performing over there in Skimpy outfits and singing about getting wasted and sleeping with ever guy possible. Now I have no issue in people wearing those outfits or what they sing I am all for freedom of speech within moderation. Although when it comes to doing it in a country that offers no freedoms for women especially, then forces them to be religiously oppressed while some dumb american is shaking her *** at all the Arab Sheikhs.
Then you get sporting events like WWE going over there and having a 50 man Royal Rumble instead of 30 and the fact that women can not perform in sporting events when the WWE is supposed to be pushing it's women's division away from just being sexual icons.

I have booked flights to Cape Town with BA. I am concerned about being bumped off the flight. Should I reserve a seat?
I am flying to Cape Town from London in August for a guided tour. As there is only one flight a week I am worried what would happen if I did get bumped because I would miss my tour completely and ruin my holiday.
Is it worth me reserving my seat or is that pointless because someone else will have reserved the same seat. I will of course will Check in as early as I can.
Just would like advice on the realistic chance it happening considering I have never flown BA before.3 AnswersAir Travel1 year ago
Wasn t Captain Marvel supposed to be this femenist saviour of the world and to be the face of Marvel? Yet she is only used to save Tony Stark and Spiderman.

However something simillar for example another Sci Fi film me and my friends would suggest he might lik, would claim he is not interested or its not my thing. It is like they do not like suggestions and do it on principle. Also I remember he would not watch anything rated 15 or 18 apart from a few odd exceptions. Even though he is in his late 20 s.
