Remember back in school when a kid showed up at school with a broken leg and crutches?
And everybody thought it was so cool and they grabbed his crutches and took turns walking around on them pretending they, too, had a broken leg?

And the kid who had really broken his leg just sat and watched everybody playing with his crutches, and shook his head because the crutches had gotten old a long time ago and he wished he didn’t need them because they stopped being fun about 30 seconds after the doctor gave them to him. And now his armpits were chapped and his arms ached and his fingers were cramped. And his cast itched and his leg hurt like hell. He wished he could not have a broken leg and not need those damned crutches and he could just get up and run around and play like everyone else. But he couldn’t move two feet without them because his leg was all jacked up.

And he really needed to go to the bathroom, but his friends were having so much fun playing with his crutches that they didn’t realize they weren’t a toy and that he really needed them just to get around, something they could do without crutches and without even thinking about it. And he was both annoyed and amused that they were so eager to use his crutches when they didn’t need them at all, they didn’t understand that crutches weren’t toys, and they didn’t appreciate how awesome it was NOT to need crutches just to get to the damned toilet.

That’s what the great 2018 DU Wypipo Drama reminds me of ..

Que the adorning hordes.

4. how did he break his leg?
tripping over a dead horse?

 White Privilege, the new and improved white man's burden. (props to Kipling  https://www.shmoop.com/white-mans-burden/poem-text.html)   WYDUpipo are getting a bit sick of Effin' black pipo's   :pokingpoop:

Well, some but not all.

7. ha ha ha
it is not a dead horse, unlike the dead kids that get killed because A) a certain group always lets Cops get away with shooting unarmed kids and B) that same groups loves that ar-15's so much that they are willing to let their kid get shot up in schools by kids, who, oddly enough, happen to be of the same complexion.

5. wypipo is a term people used
because they had a problem that needed a term. The kid has crutches because he needed a tool, but the kids that play with the crutches do not realize these are not toys for the kid, but tools.

6. Whenever I see a wypipo thread or read a wypipo column, this always pops into my head...

 {video link}   https://youtu.be/vDYCVfubdr4



Should any DUmmie ever use the phrase 'this always pops into my head...'???

Caught the next one before the delete??  A one post wonder may soon go under the ban hammer.  Effie got major MOJO or is it Domo?

27. There is another important term to consider.

After reading numerous threads about this general topic, many generated by you, and also the comments, I decided to sign up and suggest something that may help. There are many professionals who can treat the condition that seems to be presenting itself here.

Some of the more relevant details of what psychologists and psychiatrists identify as “injustice collecting” (the individuals are known as “injustice collectors”:

Injustice collecting allows us to avoid responsibility for our circumstances. Self-pity garners attention and sympathy from others.

The injustice collector attempts to regain perceived loss of all power by using the attention and sympathy to manipulate others into conceding to the injustice collector, in an effort to accommodate the alleged victim.

The tendency to itemize every unfair knock we've ever suffered is known as injustice collecting. Sometimes the injustices are personal, as in, "My boss unfairly promoted Rick over me." This kind of self-talk leads to anger. At other times, the catalogued outrages lead to overwrought generalizations, such as, "Nothing ever goes well; this is too unfair." This type of thinking leads to hopelessness and rage.

Enough grudge holding and soon you'll see more iniquity than actually exists. The injustice collector becomes a trigger-happy perceiver.

This article offers more about the condition: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/articles/20061/injustice-collecting

Thank you and have a nice day.

Another important thing to consider: If it walks like a duck....

28. And another important term to consider Is System Justification.
System justification is a social psychology term of art that designates any motivational tendency to defend, bolster, or rationalize existing social, economic, and political arrangements.

It is conceptualized as a response tendency possessed by many, or perhaps most, members of society to see aspects of the overarching social system as good, fair, and legitimate. Consequently, alternatives to the status quo are often derogated or avoided for ideologically defensive reasons. In other words, system justification is an inherently conservative inclination to preserve “the way things are,” sometimes even at the expense of objective social interests (Jost, Banaji, & Nosek, 2004).

System justification allows us to ignore disparities and injustices, they're "OK". "They're just in your head you see?" "You're just causing trouble by pointing things out."

System justification simply needs to be recognized in most cases for healing and liberation from it to begin:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/without-prejudice/201702/system-justification-why-people-buy-social-inequality
And now for our  "Look at me."  post of the thread.

Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

When you read the posts at the dump the place is full of injustice collectors, the perpetually offended, the ones who can never be appeased. Like a little spoiled child when you give them a piece of candy and then they want the whole box. then when they get it, it still isn't enough.

Top that off by the place being an echo chamber only tends to reinforce thier views and pushes them further towards the brink. This is fueled by the internet where all these demented ass holes get their 5 minutes of exposure and with the MSM's help make these fringe crazies "legitimate".

Basking in the glow of my white Privilege, while I water the Begonias with liberal tears!

I've read this 3 times and the best I can tell it's a post representing minorities as having a broken leg and needing crutches but everyone else thinks it's fun to play on the same crutches the minorities are sick of having to use because all they really wanna do is take a piss.

So Effie, just ask for your crutches back then limp on over and pee, will ya? Just don't ask normal people to help you unzip your fly, or pull it out and hold it, or give it a shake. That's on you.

Maybe it was that blacks need to use expletives when referring to whites, and for white Progs to use this newest expletive is cultural appropriation.

No.

The only reason that would happen is if YOU were the bully that did it.  It does not happen in the normal course of childhood.  To normal people, anyway.
