+227Here's an idea, instead of fulfilling the desires of the madman who shot up the theater by having the media cover this 24/7, let's throw him in jail and never speak of it again, amirite?
-4Do you ever self-censor on social media sites out of concern/fear your government is monitoring your activity?
+12Body-shaming is another evil usage of social media. Or do you have to put up with what you get given...?
+268It's stupid how when a kid or teenager does something inappropriate or stupid, people immediately blame it on the media and celebrities. The fact that something happens in a movie or a celebrity does something does not necessarily influence anything or everything we do. It always comes down to our own choices, and we should take responsibility for them, not some stranger, amirite?

-3I've been watching the media explode over this whole "me too" movement. From the way it has been promoted, you are led to believe 9 out of 10 guys is now a sexual predator. I'm an older guy, and have never even known anyone personally, who was guilty of rape or attempted rape. Does it happen? Of course it happens. I just don't think it happens as often as it is portrayed to be happening. Kids making out in a car, and one touching the other's breast, but stopping when the girl says no, is not sexual assault in my book. Sexual assault is a crime, and needs to be treated as a crime. With a crime, you need to report it, and evidence needs to be collected. Then a person is charged and judged. I'm sick of women accusing a man 30+ years later, with zero evidence, and then collecting a million dollar paycheck. (Be it from book deals, go fund me pages, or media/political pay-offs.) This craziness will not stop until ALL false accusers have to spend serious jail time when found to be making it up.
+21I was brought up to not be concerned about what the neighbors thought. To keep things that were discussed at home private. My question is....has social media and reality tv caused people to be so concerned about people they do not know that they neglect to see the issues that concern themselves and the people they love?
