I don't. That's just asking for an infection and/or soap tasting bristles lol. I sterilize my toothbrush using boiled water pretty frequently. And I don't use toothbrush caps anymore because plastic caps are usually porous which are lovely bacteria breeding grounds. I store it in a drawer. I feel pretty strongly about the cleanliness of my toothbrush, in case that wasn't obvious, lmao.

 

Alright, I'm ashamed of this one.

In Topic: The Pewdiepie situation - new media vs old media

People seem to be misconstruing what happened. The "joke" wasn't him saying "Kill all jews". The joke was the fact that there exists online the publicly sanctioned ability (through Fiverr) to pay a man dressed up as Jesus or random caricatures of people in a "jungle" to say hateful and shocking things for petty cash. If Felix came on camera and said "Kill all jews" with no context, yeah, that'd be stupid as hell and a direct anti-semetic message. But he didn't do this. He highlighted the ridiculousness of the "Lifestyle" section of Fiverr by showing how easy it is to make people do shocking things for small amounts of money. It was a social commentary. Blame Fiverr for giving these people the platform. Or blame these people for doing shocking things for petty cash.

 

If your shock humor requires a joke about genocide to be shocking, it's not funny in the first place. There are plenty of other ways he could have produced social commentary on that topic without trivializing the experiences of Jews who have been killed or threatened by people using the same language.

 

It's no coincidence that minorities are often both laughingstocks and caricatures in public discourse and targets of violence.


The holocaust was horrible therefore people shouldn't ever joke about it?

 

Not with a joke that parrots neo-Nazi slogans as tastelessly as Pewdiepie's.

Can you explain to me while you feel this is a valid comparison? ISIS growing from tasteless Youtube jokes into a full-fledged terrorist group?


Not sure if he's still in Brighton - he's become a lot more secretive than he already was about his personal life due to fans knocking on his door and bothering him - but I'm very much certain he's still in the UK

 

People are literally recruited into ISIS through Twitter and Youtube. Dylan Roof and Alexandre Bissonette were radicalized by the alt-right reddit/Breitbart echo chamber. Joking about the Holocaust is the first step in normalizing that type of violent language, whether intentional or not.
