I consider myself a media masochist, I'll watch things that will mess with my emotions just so I'll know more about the topic, or even to see how the other side of a debate feels. Most of these documentaries are usually the ones like "Flow", "The corporation", "This film has not been rated", and "Shoah". Films recommended to me through my friends, or I hear something interesting about them and take a look. Sadly it's hard to share these things with my other friends because when the films get taken down, people don't re-upload them. Everyone wants to make sure the camrip of an action movie is online, but fuck movies like "SICK: The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist" (which I'm also trying to find a copy of).

But other films like "Earthlings" (which tries to make a point about animal cruelty, but gets bogged down in PETA-esque rhetoric) are on the other side of the fence. I don't agree with it, someone capslocks that if everyone watches this magical film that they'll UNDERSTAND!!!1 and if anything I watch it just to deconstruct their arguments better. In one of these cases a documentary called "Zoo" was passed along to me in an argument.

Tell me if I'm being close-minded here, but c'mon. "One whinny yes, two whinnys and a hoofstomp no" doesn't sound like consent to me.
