Is It Any Good?
So Stupid is a fun site that encourages freedom of speech. The world is filled with ridiculousness involving pop culture and politics, and complaining is not often encouraged; however, sometimes people just need to rant. So Stupid allows the opportunity to unleash without using hateful or harmful language. Also, most of the posts are politically charged, encouraging discussion on important issues.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
