‘The Social Dilemma’ Is Great

Disclaimer: I’m sure there are going to be some spoilers in here. With that being said, act accordingly, brethren.

So, let’s just skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. Over the weekend, my wife and I finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. All I know is, based on my own social media habits, these programming bastards are right, man. I mean, a LARGE number of us are completely addicted to these sites and apps, fam. The way I see it, it’s high time that we unplug from the Matrix, bruh.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Netflix just released a documentary that chronicles our dependency on social media. Now, to further the point, the doc interviews a number of developers and business folk who were/are intimately involved with companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. From there, these individuals outline the deliberate ways in which these companies design their products to keep users engaged. At the core, they don’t believe that there were nefarious intentions with these algorithms. However, our society has been irreparably changed by the developments.

As an example, one of the developers interviewed was part of the team that created the Like Button on Facebook. At the time, they thought it was just a cool little idea. They really didn’t envision a time when people would do outlandish shit for this type of attention. They didn’t envision a time when folks, especially preteens and teens, would harm themselves or commit suicide because of a lack of acknowledgement. Frankly, these sites have WAY too much control over our thoughts and emotions.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m exempt from all of this. On the real, I’m OUTRAGEOUSLY addicted to Instagram. Shit, my Explore Page always keeps me engaged with copious amounts of music, MMA and Jiu Jitsu posts. Side note, there are also a few posts of women, but like I tell my wife, I don’t know how they got there! Anyway, these developers and programmers make it a point to study us. Based on our activity, they know EXACTLY what we want to see. From there, they keep us overstimulated on these apps and sell our data to the highest bidder. Hell, even the action of pulling down the screen to refresh the page was designed to affect us psychologically. All in all, a bunch of tech heads have complete control over our brains.

In the end, I highly recommend this documentary. On one hand, I think some of the background music and the dramatizations are a little overdone. On the other hand, I’m blown away by all of the ways that these companies play us like puppets. Eventually, there’s going to come a time where I unplug completely. All I can say is, the minute that I no longer need social media to promote this blog, I’m gone, son. That is all. LC out.

These Sex Dolls Are Out Of Control!

So, what the fuck is going on, son? Like, is this what we’re really doing, man? Look, are folks trying to tell me that dudes are giving up on real women, fam? Listen, all I want to know is, when did sex dolls become the wave, bruh? I mean, variations of them have been around for eons. All in all, what’s going on in society and technology that this has become such a trend? All I can say is, we’re living in some strange ass times, people.

Ok, I was inspired to write this because of social media. Basically, over the last few weeks, I’ve been seeing more and more posts about a new brand of sex dolls for men. Listen, shit started getting real when a doll named Shakira started making rounds on the internet. Side note, I would normally put hyperlinks to articles on my site, but I ain’t tryna get caught out there dispensing porn, son. Then again, is it porn if it’s a doll? See, I don’t know what the fuck is happening out here, man! In any case, Shakira became notable because of how “she’s” shaped. Essentially, she has a big ass and big ass titties and dudes are losing their fucking minds over it.

Moving on, more and more pictures of dolls have been invading my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter timelines, fam. Wait, what kinda pervs am I following, bruh? Seriously, why is my IG Explore Page filled with this shit, folks? Hmm, I may need to reevaluate who I associate with. Anyway, these dolls are making news because they’re all shaped like chicks who dance in Magic City and King of Diamonds. So, is that all men need, son? Anything that looks like a fat ass? It doesn’t even need to be human ass? *Sigh* I’m fucking LOST out here, man!

Listen, even if we take away the companionship of a real woman, these dolls are going to have obvious deficiencies, fam. Like, can Shakira throw that ass back? Can Shakira ride? Can Shakira give that oral yahmean? Hell nah, bruh! On the real, if they could do all of that, then we’d need to worry about the rise of Skynet, folks. In that reality, sex would be the least of our worries. Coming back, dudes are really trying to fuck a balloon that’s shaped like a stripper? Sheesh, I don’t even know what to say, son. Times like these really give credence to the phrase “truth is stranger than fiction.”

In the end, shit like this is why I’m happy to be married, man. Keeping it a buck, these dating apps already seemed like a daunting enough task for me. Now, guys out here aren’t even trying to entertain talking to women. Ultimately, people say “don’t kink shame,” but fuck that, fam! I’m ABSOLUTELY judging any man who actually buys one of these things! By and by, instead of buying a doll called Shakira, go find a real Shakira and see if she’s down for the getdown. At the end of the day, I’m 100% positive it’ll be more fun that way, bruh. That is all. LC out.
