    Schindler's List was less depressing than I thought it would be.

    Now the book Night by Elie Wiesel? Super fucking depressing.

    Read that when I was 11 and. Just
    Spoiler:

    You know that part where his dad is in the infirmary, and they are all being moved to a different camp, and he runs in there and convinces his dad to get out of bed thinking that the nazis will kill the sick as they leave, and they run for miles in the snow as they get herded to another camp, and his dad dies from this, and the chapter ends with him talking about how he found out several years later what happened to the sick jews who got left behind, and it closes with "they were quite simply liberated by the Russians."

    Yeah.

    My dad is embarrasingly right-wing, although he is racially and sexually tolerant, if only by habit because he's in a leadership position six steps from the top at a major bank. We've always been kind of distant, it's kind of an "absolute rule, father has spoken" kind of deal in our house.

    My dad stopped listening to the Savage Nation, so the accusations of everyone that displeases him being "some kind of commie liberal jew muslim" have gone down quite a bit

    I guess we don't have to lose ALL hope in the older generations

    After my Grandad died we had to put my Grandma in a home as she couldn't look after herself. Now, my Gran had lived in a small village all her life and had very little experience of people/cultures other than the ones in the village.

    So one day I'm visiting her and she leans over with a massive grin on her face and says "You know how woke me up this morning? A Black man!!!" she then lean't back still smiling.

    Also when said "black man" walked past later she lean't over and said "ooo he's black ain't he!" She was so fascinated by him as she had only ever known White people!

    So my Grandpa and Grandma on my dad's side lived for years and years and years in the tiny town of White, SD (pop. 500-ish). After my Grandpa died, my grandma moved down to the booming metropolis of Sioux Falls (pop. 100,000-ish) rather than stay in the same big house they'd lived in for I-couldn't-even-guess-how-long. A couple of years ago, though, it started becoming apparent that she was doing less and less okay on her own, and the family decided to move her into an assisted-living whatever place back in White.

    I managed somehow to make it back home for Mother's Day the year before last, and we went to visit her. The highlight of the trip was when she remarked to my dad how strange it seemed now to see so many White people around. She couldn't remember the last time she'd been around so many White people.

    My mom would be totally okay if i told her i was bisexual and my dad would probably be too, he just wouldn't talk about it because we're men and thats weird
    i just don't see a situation when I'll ever have to tell them
    like whatever i do me they do them we don't really share this shit its personal


    also my dad is rather prejudiced against East-Indians because like half the engineers and new people he works with are, and they never understand what hes telling them and he cant understand him and this is a problem when you are trying to get important work done and also most of the people he works with are hilariously stupid and do stupid things so i dont really bother him about it

    for more depressing holocaust literature, people need to read the book thief by markus zusak. its written from the point of view of a girl living in nazi germany hiding a jewish boxer. the book had me in tears at the end, especially awkward since i was reading it on the metro

    i don't understand the appeal to reading something or watching something that just makes you feel awful and cry
    why is that enjoyable

    It's cathartic.

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.

    I don't think people pick up a book saying "I would like to cry hopefully this will do the trick"

    If you cry during a book it could be a sign of being engaged and moved by it and will probably end up being a net positive experience over all I guess!

    blah when i watch super depressing movies i get up and just feel awful
    its like
    gee i sure dont want to have to watch that again

    maybe i just don't take things seriously enough or don't feel bad enough for things other people do but
    I think it's dumb
    Like, lots of stuff can be rad movies or books AND make me cry
    but when you guys are like
    OH TOTALLY READ THIS BOOK IT MADE ME CRY:
    or
    THIS MOVIE MAKES ME FEEL SO AWFUL I CRY SO MUCH EVERY TIME I SEE IT

    Maybe it's not for you? Dunno, like FAQ said, the crying is a product of being caught up in the characters and feeling a growing empathy for them as you go through the book

    well I've never cried reading or watching anything

    and I assume when people are talking about stuff that made them cry they are talking about rad movies and books that made them cry

    Not some kind of crying porn where you turn off the lights and blow your duct

    Yeah, I don't know if I believe in catharsis. It seems kinda like the emotional equivalent of trying to use leeches to get the bad blood out.

    yeah i dunno the whole like
    crying porn genre marketed towards mothers and teenage girls kind of disturbs me

    its like
    hey check out how many people can have TERRIBLE LIVES OR DANGEROUS DISEASES in this book and cry about it!
    That seems to be the main theme behind most "popular" romance movies and books now
    how much it will make you cry by the end

    If you're talking about doomed romance then eh

    They're they only really interesting kind of romance

    I'm actually a lot more likely to read about a homosexual relationship than a straight one because of the great level of risk involved

    The higher the chance of a beheading is the better
