They were always just another band to me, so I was surprised how hard his death hit me, guess they meant more to me than I realized.

In case you haven't noticed, autistic is increasing popularity on the internet as an insult, and if we want to be accepted as part of the community we CANNOT tolerate such usage of the term.

But it didn't happen as much a decade ago. I wonder, there is such a thing as the streissand effect, and trolls,...

No, I would rather just punch them in the face. It's far more emotionally satisfying.


Can't punch people across the internet.

Metalcore! Not many people consider it as real metal, but I'm one of the people that do. I mean come on, it literally says "metal" in the name! Some bands I listen to a lot are Bad Omens, The Amity Affliction, and The Gloom in the Corner. I don't have any particular favorites because my &...

Anyway, the objections to the idea that autism is defined by a lack of empathy aren't based on a moral argument, they are based on the idea th...
