I like normies.

They don't scream at me about SJW's, boomers, western civilization or any of the other shit the internet thinks should dominate every thought and action. They just go about their day like I try to do and get their work done.

They're happy with bad tv and chain restaurants. Only encouraging the shitification of the world while weirdos become more misanthropic. Us cynical nerds only shittify with the constant negativity, but there's a low hum of that in all of our heads anyway.

Don't act like nerds and weirdos are really all that better. Doing everything exactly opposite from "The Mainstream" is the same thing as doing everything exactly like "The Mainstream." You're still using What Everyone Else is Doing as your primary point of reference. It's the same kind of stupid that is practiced by Satanists who worship the Christian Devil.

Naw, of course not. Not much point in rebelling, but I'm sick of Marvel-style middle of the road movies made to appeal to normie masses blandifying cinema while AAA games are glorified disney rides. Mad about Facebook getting everyone's grandma hooked on comforting misinformation, swaying her votes and draining her accounts to doom the next generation.

I don't want the normies getting taken advantage of to the detriment of everything I care about, so if I don't preach, I just build a cabin in the woods with a few petabytes of emulators, books, and porn and go about my superior life growing potatoes.

What's funny is that so many so called "normies" would actually agree with you, wholeheartedly in fact. The shit you're talking about is for a minority of 'em, at best.

The problem with whining about "normies" is that when you ask the user of the word what exactly IS a normie, they always talk about their ideological opposition, rather than an actual normal person. Their minds are so warped by being terminally online, it's why they will tell you that "normies" are all for the same shit they oppose. Funny how the "not all men/not all women/not all gun owners/not all conservatives/not all etc" crowd will use the exact same arguments made against them to describe the average Joe trying to find the right baby formula for his kid after work.

I mean, let's take >>24673 post as an example:

>I'm sick of Marvel-style middle of the road movies made to appeal to normie masses blandifying cinema

What normie masses, dude? Do you know every single "normie" out there? Quite a lot don't give a fuck about capeshit. Seriously, talk to people off the internet. Many of them couldn't give any less of a fuck. Oh, they might have seen a bit here and there, but I've yet to see anyone as terminally interested as so many seem to think. Hell, where I've been, Funko Pops gather dust on shelves. No one buys the fucking things.

>while AAA games are glorified disney rides.

So you're mad that kids toys like video games, gasp, no longer appeal to you? Instead of admitting you've just grown out of them, you decide it's all part of a conspiracy? Funny how "capitalism or death" folks always whine when companies try to make more money with a broader audience. Yeah, I've had franchises I've liked go down the shitter, but you know what I do when they do? I move the fuck on. They're kids' toys, just like pro sports teams play kids' games. It's not that important.

>Mad about Facebook getting everyone's grandma hooked on comforting misinformation, swaying her votes and draining her accounts to doom the next generation.

Funny how anti-social media peeps trot out the same excuses they rejected when applied to guns. The VAST majority of social media users use social media for two things: to keep tabs on their sportsball teams/to talk to family. Take Twitter, for example; everyone says muh blue checks are gonna ruin everything, but did you know that a minority of Twitter users produce the vast majority of tweets? Twitter is vastly overrated as a destabilizing agent.

>I don't want the normies getting taken advantage of to the detriment of everything I care about, so if I don't preach, I just build a cabin in the woods with a few petabytes of emulators, books, and porn and go about my superior life growing potatoes.

And there it is. My "superior" life. Life isn't to be won or lost, it just is. Nobody is gonna care you lived a "superior" life when they find your corpse hanging in the cabin once you get the inevitable epiphany most anti-social people do. The fact that bitch ass elitism motivates you instead of meaningful self-improvement is to be expected.Self improvement is for you to live a better, happier, healthier life. If you do a good job of it, it may have positive effects on the people around you. The reason so many people are still in the dumps is because they're too self-centered. Self-improvement isn't meant to just "own" people, "get back" at people. Do what's best for you and the other people in your life not because it has good results, but because it's the right thing to do. Many people can't seperate the two ideas from each other which is one of the main causes of unhappiness in the world at large and in the personal lives of most people. Sometimes (I'd say very often), good things are hard to do but they are worth doing because they build you, your loved ones and the world up in the process.

But if all you're doing is trying to "own" people who don't know you exist, will never know you exist...then it's no wonder you feel so down on yourself and your hobbies. You like to play video games? Then why not just play them? Just play what you already have. Getting bored? Play the vast library of older games out there. Why do you feel you have to worry about today's games being shit? Nobody's forcing you to play them, are they?

Worry about yourself. What other people do is between them and God, or whatever. Or just continue to shitpost about normies and continue to feel like shit.

The choice is, and can only be, yours.

The biggest horrors of the world are enabled by coincidence theorists all the time. Normies, being disproportionately represented in this group are complicit with more fucked up shit than the most schizo q anon tier conspiranoid.

A conspiracy theorist will kill a room of people. A normie coincidence theorist, will support directly or indirectly decades of war.

I honestly don't think many normies exist in this generation (by which I mean people from 18-30). Most of them that I've encountered are just another toxic virtue signalling subculture like incels, /pol/tards, SJWs, etc. except the virtue is being "chill" and pretending to enjoy boring shit without thinking deeply about it. If you spend time around them, you'll see that their natural persona is anything but. They're just as much about contrasting themselves with this 'other' as /pol/tards are with trannies and Jews, SJWs are with "chuds", and incels are with non-larping sex havers. They don't just want to be seen sitting there not complaining about things, they want to enjoy a tribalist hatred of people who do some negative opinions and some capacity for boredom.

>I honestly don't think many normies exist in this generation (by which I mean people from 18-30).

Your problem is that you're likely so terminally online, you can only address the issue from a terminally online perspective. Here, let me boil this shit down for you. The vast majority of people? They're all normies. They don't give a fuck about the culture war bullshit. Like, at all. If you mentioned it to them, they'd think those people who do talk like fags and their shit's all retarded. They're called normies because of lowkey envy/the need to impress fellow terminally online dorks. That's it. Shit, normies would have incels, SJWs, etc all gassed en masse, on sight. There is never going to be this mass normie conversion to either side of the terminally online dork spectrum. Normie men are not gonna turn women barefoot and pregnant, normie women are not gonna force men to get their dicks chopped. If it wasn't for the media's obsession with finding a scapegoat to replace Muslims as the Big Bad, you wouldn't even know incels existed. You wouldn't know what an SJW is. You would be able to twig that companies "going woke" only do so because the target audience is burned the fuck out (why do you think sports ratings are going down? People are tired of the same old big markets winning every year and all the other bullshit) and are so desperate for a Hail Mary, they listen to the extremely loud vocal minority on Twitter, a site where only twenty something percent of users make the vast majority of tweets. Then the "anti-woke" crowd thinks normies agree with them? No, sorry. They don't give a fuck about cuckservatives. They're tired of the Lakers, Warriors, Patriots, Yankees (who look to be the WS favorites this year), etc winning all the time. They're tired of primadonna players like Kawhi, Lebron, etc quitting on their teams and forcing their way out. They're tired of taxpayers being on the hook for stadiums their children's children will never afford a ticket for an event at. They're tired of it altogether. It has nothing to do with Kaep kneeling, etc. But anti-woke types refuse to accept this because it would shatter their narrative. Nobody wants that homoerotic MAGApede shit anymore than they do woke, milquetoast, inoffensive media. You have bought into fake news, quite simply. Incels/SJWs are glorified boogeymen people use to project their own flaws on, so as to avoid confronting them. It's not MY fault I'm like this, it's THEIR fault! I have said it time and time again that if people just called this shit out instead of fighting one dumb hot take with an even dumber one, we'd finally get somewhere as a society.

>Most of them that I've encountered are just another toxic virtue signalling subculture like incels, /pol/tards, SJWs, etc. except the virtue is being "chill" and pretending to enjoy boring shit without thinking deeply about it.

See, this is what I'm talking about. They're not virtue signalling. They're simply living life. You're just trying too hard to hold onto being based and -pilled or some gay shit. Dude, normies don't give a fuck about incels, etc. They don't know what they are. They really don't. I volunteer so much, and you know what I don't see when I do? Nobody ranting about incels. Nobody talking about SJWs. Nobody wanting to send me a link to a goddamn /pol/ thread. Men, women, black, white, whatever. Nobody. Fucking. Cares. If anything, YOU are the virtue signaller.

>If you spend time around them, you'll see that their natural persona is anything but. They're just as much about contrasting themselves with this 'other' as /pol/tards are with trannies and Jews, SJWs are with "chuds", and incels are with non-larping sex havers. They don't just want to be seen sitting there not complaining about things, they want to enjoy a tribalist hatred of people who do some negative opinions and some capacity for boredom.

You're still stuck in the trap, son. The media has really mindfucked you so hard, holy shit.

Look man I respect your opinions but you're out of your element here. You don't understand what the average college freshman is like. It's certainly possible that I was exaggerating (I definitely was trying to be a bit poetic and draw attention to the concept) and it's more like say 30-40% that are what I'm talking about but it's a real thing that I've experienced. I didn't develop this opinion from fucking reddit posts or something (and honestly I don't think you'd find many agreeing with me, even the terminally online love to simp for normies), I got it from dealing with college age kids IRL when I was also one.

There also is a regional/local element to this, some places just have more fun stuff going on and thus end up having a more healthy and genuine social life, some places don't.

Idk. Maybe it's just where you are. Most people my age are normies.
It's only a vocal minority of youth that are. And besides, last time I checked, most political drama is mostly 30-70.
Alot of the anti-normie folk are older than you think.

>Look man I respect your opinions but you're out of your element here. You don't understand what the average college freshman is like.

I've dealt with plenty of college kids myself - volunteered with them, worked with them, have relatives who are in college. I've yet to hear a single one say anything that could be construed as woke or whatever. Dude, most people, in general, don't even know anything about this culture war bullshit. If I asked ten of them what an incel is, maybe a couple would say they do; the rest would ask if I'm cheering for anyone in the Stanley Cup Finals or some shit. I think we unfairly generalize them as "woketard NPCs" when the truth is that many of them are just trying to get through their college years in one piece. I've yet to hear a single college student tell me to check my privilege or whatever. Doesn't mean they don't exist, it just means I don't believe it's as widespread as you're saying. I see more dudebros like it's something out of Eurotrip or American Pie than stock SJWs or whatever.

>>24720

The problem is that terminally online folks think "normies" would agree with them. They're so mindfucked by the internet, they actually believe "normies" are some hivemind of leftoid/rightoid NPCs, blah blah blah. They're not. I've met people from all walks of life, and so many of them are well adjusted folks just trying to do good in their lives. I think a lot of this "normie" business stems from jealousy. Think about it, logically. Terminally online folks, folks who unironically use words like normie, tend to be from broken, dysfunctional homes. They look to people like Joshua Connor Moon, Metokur, Ethan Ralph, Sargon of Akkad, Nick Fuentes, etc as surrogate father figures. Their parents/families didn't bother to explain shit, so they go onto r/FDS, /pol/, whatever to find "the truth." Then they see "normies" going about their day and they cope and seethe. Everything has its time and place: remember how big Scientology was in the public eye? Now it's basically irrelevant, and all signs are pointing to its inevitable extinction because newer and flashier movements are coming up. So it is with these "trends" the media likes to try to convince us are real. In ten, twenty years, the entire landscape will be radically different. No one will think about Trump, Biden, incels, SJWs, whatever. No one. Just like nobody cares about juggalos and bronies anymore.

You're just missing what I'm saying. I'm not saying they're part of the culture war and have strong opinions about "incels", I'm just saying they have their own form of virtue signalling and you have to be in close quarters with them as a peer to see it. In short, they are very exclusionary. I've heard other people express the same thing, if they get a whiff that you're a bit 'weird' (even passively, subliminally) despite trying to be congenial, they will signal to their normie friends that they shouldn't associate with you.

You're really not going to see it just volunteering with them at whatever age you're at. And I think this should be obvious but the sort of normies who regularly go out and volunteer are generally a lot more kind and well adjusted than the general populace.

>The problem is that terminally online folks think "normies" would agree with them.
Which should tell you that I'm not terminally online, I don't expect them to agree with me. I've met them and have had to come to terms with the fact that I don't get along with them very well, and that that obviously reflects on me as well as them. I can't maintain a tradcath-tier fog-of-war fantasy that there's this secret silent majority that is exactly what I want, since I've seen the reality.

If anything, you're the one doing this. You're largely ascribing your own values to normies, and just adding that they're less examined in those values.

It's not just volunteering. It's working with them, it's living with them. It's making small talk at bus stops and such. I'm not as well adjusted as you may think. I'm not perfect. I'm just me. I'm just trying to get by. I can't dictate to you what you're experiencing, but at least in my neck of the woods, I haven't seen much of anything to worry about.

>If anything, you're the one doing this. You're largely ascribing your own values to normies.

I disagree. I've yet to see any normie even espouse 'dudebro' opinions about incels, etc. I'm trying to say that the people I've seen largely care about their own lives, and don't bother with whatever it is the media is peddling. That's it. When I see black kids playing with white, etc kids, no one is ranting about BLM. When I see men and women laughing it up together at work, nobody's talking about how foids are this and scrotes are that. My boss at work's an atheist, but his wife is Christian - they get along just nicely. My own values are the same as anybody else's: treat people, treat the world, the way you'd want to be treated. Prejudice isn't something you're born with, it's taught.

Again, you simply do not understand what I'm saying. I am not saying they go on about politics, I'm saying they are very quick to alienate people who aren't "chill" enough, beyond what you would consider reasonable. I was just putting it in a poetic manner to compare it to the sort of virtues that these other groups signal.

Glad we're at least clear on that. I'm going to reiterate that I am aware that what I'm talking about could be a lot smaller in scope and/or localized than how I've made it out to be, but it is definitely real and you just can't know about it if you're any sort of outsider. 18 year olds simply don't alienate 30 year olds they know through work or whatever, you're not a rival. Similarly you yourself wouldn't think of alienating a 60 year old for being weird. And not that it's unlikely you'll see this happening to others since it's handled in a very passive and subliminal manner.

It doesn't really.
The reason why people assume teens to be more bigoted is because teens are denied any legal allowance of real world experience.
Adults are obviously more bigoted but they justify it with their worldly experience and massive social/legal power.
The dirty secret of adulthood is that age determines your social might.
At least if you're male.
The older you are, the more society justifies your biases, no matter how silly it is.

The reason why Flat Earth is taken seriously is because it's ADULT MALES promoting it.
We laugh at children for believing in Santa or Tooth Fairy.
( I dunno if it's true that kids really believe in Santa or Tooth Fairy, I think those are parental assumptions made to lord it over kids anyway, seeing how parents freak about about kids making dirty jokes).
