** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMSZ1TqgOIU Noah Antwiler (Spoony)]]'': Fame is never an excuse to act like a {{jerkass}} and dodge acting responsibly. This is made all the more poignant when [=LordKaT=] calls him out for ruining his chance at getting an interview at GDC due to his behavior at E3 and him being associated with him.

** In the review and commentary for ''Film/SevenPounds'', Film Brain does not mince words his disgust and rage about how horrible it is that suicide is glorified as the ultimate sacrifice, when the main character had a fantastic education and could have done so much more to help others if he didn't martyr himself.

Considering how one of Film Brian's family members commited suicide, it makes sense that he wouldn't be favorable of the pro-suicide message the film gave away.

* The story of [[http://www.herculesthebear.com/index.html Hercules]] the grizzly bear is a cautionary tale on the dangers of domestication. Hercules was the pet of scottish wrestler Andy Robin and his wife Maggie. He lived in the house, ate cooked food (he wouldn't touch raw meat) and was so tame that he'd let people (usually Andy) ride around on his back. There was also an incident in 1980 where he ran away during the filming of a Kleenex advert in the Outer Hebrides and wasn't found for almost a month, during which time he lost half his body weight because he wouldn't kill and eat any of the livestock or wildlife in the area. The story shows that sometimes animals shouldn't be tamed because they need the instinct to survive in the unforgiving wild. Animal Rescuers have to retrain animals so that they can properly reintegrate with their basic instincts of survival. As horrible as it is, predatory animals need to be hunt living prey so that they can receive proper nutrients from the meat and keep their skills honed. You need to maintain the natural food chain and cycle. You shouldn't kill or harm one animal in order to save another.

** In a way, the dangers of domestication can also apply to humans. If a parent coddles a child or tries to aggressively suppress their negative traits (i.e anger, lust, etc) then the child can have trouble with integrating with other people or establishing meaningful friendships/relationships as they grow older or they may have trouble properly looking after themselves. They can become meek, unambitious and overly cautious or they can develop deep-seated, unresolved rage that can result in them harming themselves or others.

* [[http://www.doctornerdlove.com/what-is-toxic-masculinity/ This article]] by Dr. Nerdlove explains how gendered assumptions about what makes men powerful can create serious problems for men, including isolating themselves from help and support due to assumptions that men have to take care of everything themselves or they'd be considered 'unmanly'. It gets this across while also establishing that manliness and masculinity are ''not'' toxic or terrible in and of themselves, which is another anvil that needs to be dropped.
--> "Masculinity becomes toxic when specific standards of behavior are encouraged and enforced despite being damaging. Dominance, violence, unchecked sexual aggression, self-reliance to the point of absurdity and the devaluation of anything seen as being “feminine” are all points where masculinity goes from being positive to toxic. It’s the mandating of the limited scope of what men are allowed to be, if they’re to be considered “real men”."
