The following people are dumb: idiots on the internet

Polls everywhere, but not a single dancer. Intelligence optional.

One of my favorite things is seeing historians lay smackdowns on D'Souza. It happens often, so I've been having a good time!

With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

I am guessing that this is a deliberate joke or troll.

Even several of the people answering the original question recognized it as such, and the user's other questions are private, which is common for trolls so that you cannot as easily confirm their trolling history.

Why can't Poe's Law just not be a thing, and just have all these people being actually batshit?

Being fair, that list is badly written. It should be hetero/homo/bi/other but it recognises that enough morons won't know what homosexual means, but doesn't think some people will be stupid enough to know what heterosexual means.

There's always the option of being educated. Already being familliar with information. Knowing things.

That's not an option, really. The option is to put education to use, to let knowledge change your thoughts/actions. You do not have the option to know things that you are not aware are available to be known.

Yeah, I chose to know things like why people don't always act like perfect robots and sometimes make mistakes. Or were let down by systems beyond their control, or just didn't care to learn it. It's not like knowing the technical words for sexuality is the most important thing in the world so I don't think it's too outlandish for someone to make a mistake like that when the setup is a bit confusing to begin with.

I'm sorry but if you've gotten past 6th grade, in America at least, you should know those terms.

Can I also scream: they used a smartphone to post a picture to express their ignorance instead of using a smartphone to solve their problem of not knowing what heterosexual means.

Plus, context. There's the idkwtf option, the gay/lesbian option, the bisexual option, and the other option. If you don't know what heterosexual means then it should be something to add to your vocabulary and what better way to do so than with an internet connected device that you keep in your pocket?

Yeah and if you're writing a survey you should know better than to put a colloquialism for one entry and a technical term for another in the same list. The person writing that got paid for it, and should hold themselves to a higher standard than some random internet jerkoff. The person saying "why u no put straight" is still a dumbass, but it's dumbassery I can understand, not hideous anti-gay prejudice.

Not really sure where this belongs, but I feel it fits better here than the general Social Justice thread since that's usually more about real-world actions. Mods can move it there or elsewhere if it suits 'em.

GMG blogger is very upset because Spider-Man, a New York-based superhero, sometimes cooperates with the NYPD in his new game.
