Oh the irony. I never said it was rape, I wasn't speaking literally. Again, I never said it was rape, I wasn't speaking literally. Because of the assumption that women cannot make their own decisions, men can sexually assault without making physical contact with anyone, I think that about covers it. You have no idea what you are talking about, and unlike you, I'm not so pathetic that I consider every discussion on the internet some kind of battle. Like who are you? What kind of basement dwelling child are you? Getting so upset over what I said that you think were fighting now? Kid, take a nap, maybe warm up some milk. Who said anyone should care what happens to me? Oh thats right, no one did. Hmmm, meaning you assumed, why would you assume that? Well the only logical conclusion, is that I remind of you men your jealous of, and now you want to take your anger out on me. Its okay dude, theres nothing wrong with being ugly, and I don't see how its fair that you have to take out your personal problems out on me. How can you possibly be so butthurt about an opinion on a forum? Relax, you are taking the internet way too seriously. Like why on earth do you care so much about me all the sudden?

[QUOTE="Michael0134567"] [QUOTE="Ring_of_fire"] Entertainment is not the end goal of music nor art. I don't think anyone will argue that there isn't an entertainment aspect to music/art, but to say the end goal is simply entertainment is simplifying music and reeks of ignorance. For one example that is universal, regardless of genre (In western music, and maybe except folk): To make money. That was one of the goals for musicians.

You are wrong. No one on earth has/goes into making music to make money. I guess you have no idea how much musicians make.[QUOTE="MrGeezer"][QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"] Its meant to entertain the person long enough, that they'll pay attention to the ad.

Which, uh, sort of means that entertainment isn't the end goal in those cases. An advertising campaign isn't considered a success if people are entertained by it, it's considered a success if it increases sales. "Entertainment" is the "end goal" for SOME art, but making a blanket statement that that's true for ALL art is simply ignorant. If there's anything true for all art, it's that art is a means of communication. And like any other form of communication, the "end goal" can vary by a little or a lot. Some art has the "end goal" of entertainment, some art has an "end goal" of intimidation, some art has an "end goal" of education or spreading propaganda.

Sort of? So I'm wrong because of "sort of"? I guess thats your egotistical way of admitting you were wrong? How very adult of you. Why don't we just say maybe you are right? And you sort of know what you are talking about. But no matter, I'll continue to put the nail in the coffin of this discussion. An ad cannot be successful if the ad is not entertaining, especially if as you said, art is the entertainment. "making a blanket statement that that's true for ALL art is simply ignorant. If there's anything true for all art, it's that art is a means of communication." You are so sort of correct, that you kind of just contradicted yourself. Do you know what the word irony means? No matter, again I'll continue. Communication in the form of entertainment, yes, you are sort of correct. "has an "end goal" of intimidation, some art has an "end goal" of education or spreading propaganda." Oh what you thought you could just completely make something up without any facts or links to back you up? Thats cute. Yea, I'm sure I should just take your word for it. I mean you are sort of right all the time.

[QUOTE="MrGeezer"][QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"] Irony. You were the one that said art wasn't entertainment, its you who needs to prove what you claim. I don't need to do anything but restate the facts, because what I said is true, and I know for a fact no one on earth is capable of proving that art is not entertainment. So good luck, after you.

Advertising, for starters. A whole lot of art is made and purchased for the specific purpose of influencing behavior (in this case, getting people to buy stuff). That's merely one example. Now, your turn.

So its entertainment then? Its meant to entertain the person long enough, that they'll pay attention to the ad. As I said, no one on earth could prove that art isn't entertainment. Its not influencing any behaviour, its entertaining the consumer, so they'll pay attention to the ad.

[QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"][QUOTE="toast_burner"]Yes you did "only men can sexually assault."

toast_burner

You completely misinterpreted my post. Which completely blows my mind, because its so blatantly obvious what I was trying to say, there is no point in me explaining it. As it isn't possible to simplify it further. Try reading the post again, sound out the words this time.

I know what you meant.

If a woman pinches your arse in a club and you don't like it, why don't you cry "sexual assualt"? You're complaining about things you don't do, you are intentionaly making yourself the victim.

So you knew what you meant, but you pretended like you didn't? Why are you trolling? Who said I didn't like it? Who says the girl in the story didn't enjoy jerking that dude off? Who has mentioned anything about anyone liking anything? What on earth are you talking about? You make absolutely no sense at all. Where does it say I'm complaining about things I don't do? Where does it say I'm the victim? You didn't understand a single word in my entire post, you just made no sense at all, you could be talking to yourself, and gotten just as far in this conversation. Try again. As I said, sound the words out this time. In elementary when I didn't understand a sentence or paragraph, I read it backwards, maybe that'll work for you. You clown.

[QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"][QUOTE="MrGeezer"]I guess if you say it enough times, that'll make it true, huh?Michael0134567

Irony. I seem to have to ask this a lot around here. Is your ego actually that massive that you can't handle being wrong? Its okay, sometimes you are wrong, you can't be right all the time. And why do you care if I just proved you wrong? You think anyone here cares? You think anyones gonna be like "Mrgeezer, thats the guy that got corrected by condor!". No, no one cares, not even me. You can't prove a single point you made in your post, all I did was point that out. Sorry, next time you are wrong about something, I'll just ignore it. Or hey, maybe if you don't want a response to something I said, (you may want to sit down for this if you aren't already) don't reply! WOAH! right?! Crazy!

Do you enjoy looking like a jackass?

Irony. Also, its funny the person you are defending, is wrong. I'm being kind by correcting them. How ridiculous would it be if that guy was walking around in public, telling people how art isn't entertainment?

Or, you know...you could simply prove your claims. I fail to see where you've proven that all art is entertainment (which would be sort of hard to do in the first place without having studied all art), all you've done is restate your claim.

Irony. You were the one that said art wasn't entertainment, its you who needs to prove what you claim. I don't need to do anything but restate the facts, because what I said is true, and I know for a fact no one on earth is capable of proving that art is not entertainment. So good luck, after you.

[QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"][QUOTE="thegerg"] You seem to be very confused. It's not rape, and no one is saying that it is. Also, women can sexually assault a person too.toast_burner

I guess you just posted without reading the OP huh? I never said a woman couldn't. You should really consider reading before you reply again, it makes you look foolish.

Yes you did "only men can sexually assault."

[QUOTE="CondorCalabasas"]

If thats rape, then whos the rapist?

Whos holding her hand, forcing her to jerk him off?

The problem with things like this, is how sexist it is.

Only men can rape, only men can sexually assault.

Its so f------ stupid.

I get my butt pinched constantly when I go to the club, but you never hear me crying about sexual assault.
