    Are you kidding me? Some college kid puts a picture of pedobear in an elevator and the building manager freaks out thinking pedobear is secret code for "pedofiles welcome" or something like that. Now kid is being investigated

    Too edgy, put trollface or something harmless like that next time.

    A me gusta face would be the best.

    hope kid sues, hope kid wins.

    while i hate frivolous lawsuits as much as anyone, you know, i find these whole 'constitutional rights' things worth defending.

    at worst they could push vandalism. but they'd also have to charge everyone else who hangs up something in a public area (...the entire rest of the college).

    RD sounds like a dumbfuck. ask kid to explain himself, ask idiot to remove pedobear, engage in proper judgment of character. do not involve police.

    what an idiot(s).

    We used to call campus police "two-five" cause they were half as useful as "five-O". Seems to apply here as well.

    Kids will have to learn that /b/ is not real life.

    Talking about harming women and violence towards children might be ok on /b/, but the real world takes offense to it.

    Internet memes may be idiotic, but to go so far as saying that pedobear represents an endorsement of pedophilia is completely dishonest. That's like saying if he posted a picture of Chris Hansen, he's trying to entice sex offenders. Or if he stuck up a picture of Charlie Sheen he's trying to attract cokeheads. Or if he put up a picture of a brony, he's gay. It's absurd.

    I love the placement as well. You don't see him, and then the doors close and he peeks out, nice and low.

    There's been all sorts of news "stories" depicting it as some secret code word for "pedofiles welcome" or "I'm looking for underage kids".

    Hasn't this happened before? I thought there was a story a while back like this too, an investigation because of this meme.

    This generation is raised by the internet. it won't be long before they are unable to distinguish the two.

    Pedobear and the like will not simply be an "internet thing."

    A little bit of information is a dangerous thing.

    Holy crap! That should win some kind of award for 'Most Dramatic Overreaction'

    I liken this to parents in the 1970s freaking out about Alice Cooper and Judas Priest and claiming the lyrics would turn children into devil-worshipping drug addicts. Or in the 1990s when Doom was responsible for school shootings. There are always going to be people who misunderstand the culture of the youth that differs from how young people behaved in "their day," even though it really doesn't. Every generation experiences their own version of the witchhunt, and it is ALWAYS bullshit. Apparently internet memes are the latest fad to misunderstand, misrepresent and villify.

    Read the recent story about the racist football game where a poster saying "You Mad Bro" was used. It was like watching AT mods in action.

    i mean....it's a weird thing.

    go try and explain pedobear to someone...go ahead, i'll wait.

    i have a friend who, despite being a bit older than me (and female), likes a lot of the same kind of humor. she listens to howard stern, and went to see steve-o when he came to a local club, ect. stuff you may not expect from someone her age with a doctorate.....but she's not exactly an 'internet' person.

    ...she also has a small child. i would NOT make pedobear jokes around her, because no amount of 'explaining' would probably help.

    Yep. It's a generation gap for the most part.

    The real world protects speech, and expression, especially at a learning institution where it's encouraged...

    Whoops, I forgot. That was when we lived by the Constitution. Now we suppress, and criminalize speech we don't like. You know, to protect the kids from the filthy terrorists, or something like that....
