QUALITY

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.    

Families can talk about...

  • Families can also talk about how even though posts on this site talk about things that are "stupid," it is still possible to be constructive and use good manners with other posters.
