Baby Boomers Issues That They Blamed On Their Older Generation

Someone on AskReddit asked for Baby Boomers to share the issues that existed while they were young, that made them think the older generation were a bunch of idiots. Things like adults resisting the use of seat belts, and assuming that all credit cards were terrible because of being so against any kind of debt, serve as solid examples. Maybe every younger generation is just bound to have a bone to pick with their older generation.

Guy Asks Internet If He's Wrong For Outing Girl's STD On Facebook After She Didn't Disclose It To Him

This guy decided to out a girl he hooked up with after he found out she had herpes, after not disclosing it to him when they originally hooked up. Apparently he posted anonymously on their University's Facebook page, and just wanted to warn other people, because of his experience with her deceiving him. From there he proceeded to face quite a bit of backlash. Was he in fact the asshole for outing her, or did he do the right thing? Or, are they both just kind of crappy people in this equation? 

AITA for outing girl online as having STD

Woman Learns That Bully Trainer At Her Gym Posts Pictures Of Obese People Working Out

This woman asked the people of Reddit whether or not she was the jerk for getting a single mother, personal trainer fired from her gym. The answer is absolutely in the context on this one. Turns out the personal trainer was taking pictures of obese people working out at the gym, and then posting them on her Instagram account. What kind of self-loathing and senseless p.o.s. pulls a stunt like that? The gym is better off without her, and it sounds like she needs to seek out some help of her own.

Galveston Police Issue Apology After Image Of Them Leading Black Man Behind Horse With Rope Goes Viral

Police in Galveston, Texas issued an apology after their officers on horseback were seen leading a black man by rope through the streets on Saturday. The 43-year-old man Donald Neely was arrested for criminal trespassing after having been warned by the cops a few times. 

Police claim that the two patrolmen didn't have any "malicious intent", and hadn't tied his hands with rope, but the picture circulating on news outlets suggests otherwise, and actually, it really just confirms that this was an unbelievable kind of cruel. 

The attorney for Mr. Neely's family says that the man is homeless and bipolar. His family hadn't seen him for several years until the photo went viral online.

Representatives from EA and Epic Games were on the hot seat in front of the UK Parliamentary Panel on Wednesday. They were there to combat claims that the game industry encourages addictive gambling tendencies with their "loot boxes."

One representative had an issue with referring to this in-game feature as "loot boxes" and instead wanted to categorize them as "surprise mechanics." Going on to advocate that it was a simple matter of playing into the joy of surprising gamers with cool gifts. Okay, or you could say that's the same thing as a hopeful gambler buying a few scratch-offs, and hoping to be surprised by a "prize."
