Question: celeb newsflash:: do you think recent slap by will smith / chris rock was justified? and do you think this leaves negative effects for highly suggestable,impressionable minds that idolize such "icons" of entertainment industry?

    I can't think of any instance where violence, even symbolic violence like a slap, is an appropriate response to words. Not sure that's the best place to focus our attention, though: e.g. the mayor of the city I live in is sanctioning violence against those without homes.

    aye- celeb slaps are last of worries eh (dont think it would have been the other way round) +violence against the homeless? wtaf..is this the official collapse of moral functioning? WOW how,why,who think that IS #suitable action for those already suffering in some sense? (maybe THEY need some nights on the streets to feel that coldness within?)

    Can words be violence?

  • Posted by Justin on March 30 2022, 9:40pm:
    "strength of emotion or an unpleasant or destructive natural force." I guess technically though to be fair that's a pretty different meaning than "behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something."
