    America/Buzzfeed's version of political correctness...

    ...is way more offensive than most of the stuff they're trying to "address".



    - stereotypical Indian girl with conservative parents: Hey, it usually is the case but don't we think it's a bit weird to have this stereotype and then be offended by someone thinking she does yoga?

    - the "woke" thing is so ****ing stupid. I mean, sure, most people know the difference between the language and the religion, but if they don't...just tell them? Is this really a ****ing issue?

    - What is the point of this? If anything, don't these videos just reinforce preconceptions rather than remove them?

    - The only good thing about the video is what I assume to be a Seinfeld reference - all of her potential love interests (including a male model lol) are WAY less good looking than her. Actually...is that sexist? I don't even ****ing care at this point.

    Won't watch the video, but buzzfeed is literally clickbait.. Content like this has a decent chance at going viral. It is not meant to address anything, it is there to make its audience feel good.

    True.

    I do feel like it is moderately offensive though, aside from being mind-numbingly stupid.

    awta. Or make them angry, either works.

    Don't go to Buzzfeed, there, problem solved
