What’s all this stuff on tumblr about Sam Pepper?

Want to fill yourself in? 

Here are a few of his videos:

Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank 
(where he goes around grabbing women’s asses without any consent, where they are clearly unhappy with it. [Posted Sept. 20, 2014])

How to Make Out with Strangers | Sam Pepper 
(Arguably forcing girls to make out with him on camera. [Posted June. 27, 2013])

How to get a Girlfriend EASY 
(HANDCUFFS himself to female strangers - the girl at 2:20 is AMAZING. [Posted Jan. 8, 2014])

How to Pick Up Girls With A Lasso
(wraps a rope around women and makes them make out with him or give him their phone number before letting them go. [Posted June. 22, 2014])

In several cases, he restrains women and makes them make out with him before he lets go.

This isn’t a one time thing. A number of his “pranks” are taking advantage of and demeaning women.

I am so REPULSED from watching these videos.

He has 2,401,650 subscribers on youtube. It’s disgusting that that number of people think this is okay.

Gender stereotyping in the English language
I was doing my reading for class and I came across this and was shocked at how accurate it was.

French Friend: well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -

American Friend: THOUSAND?

French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

Friend: So what languages do you speak then?

Me: Eh, well, I speak English and German..mostly.

Friend: I thought you were really into languages?

Me:

Friend: ?

Me: Well, I mean, I can sorta probably get by in Twi but there's a lot of English in that, and Spanish for like holidays maybe, and Dutch and Swedish but that's mostly German, and I'll give Dagaare and Assamese a shot but make a fool of myself, and then obviously Greek and Hebrew and Latin you don't speak...so...and I'm ok with Sumerian and Akkadian, and I'll take a stab at Hittite and Luwian and Eblaite and Ugaritic and I wouldn't say I can READ Middle Egyptian but we're getting there at a stretch

Friend:

Me: So...yeah...German and English ...
