I can't stand the ad. I also disliked it on YouTube. Before mocking me please at least hear me out... I grew up with sisters and a single mother who worked hard for everything we got. So I have great respect for women. I know this ad wasn't directed at me but it still annoys me anyways. The reason is the way it seems to portray toxic masculinity as an almost exclusively white male problem. Don't get me wrong there's at least one adult black man in the video being toxic but it just feels like he was thrown in after someone brought the issue up. Imagine this video if the skin color on all the white and black men was reversed. Imagine how a black man would feel watching such an ad with the scenes at 0:37-0:38, 1:48, 0:56-1:00 and 1:01-1:05. If the ad had shown that this is a problem with all races by showing all (or most) of them being toxic then I would have been completely fine with it. As it stands now I won't be buying any more Gillette products since every time I look at them I'll just be reminded of this commercial. Not really a loss since I recently got a Braun shaver anyways and would have been cutting back on razors. I also understand that people will just assume I'm a far right asshole when the reality is I'm a Canadian liberal that despises Trump. I've probably made some enemies with my first post but I wanted people to know that not everyone offended is a right wing troll.
Sonic is my favorite FGC player, and I'm straight as an arrow. I personally feel that it's your prerogative to live your life however you see fit, but I think there's degrees to the disdain straight men have for male homosexuality. Imo, these four positions/areas trigger the hate for gay men -I feel that some men are "on the down low," and feel the need to lash out on social media or whenever feasible. -Some attacks homosexual men like Sonic, because of the stigmas associated with that type of activity...AIDS, high STD rates, etc. - Religious teachings -Disgust/repulsion of male on male sex acts As a black male, every gay black man I know was molested as a child or raped in jail/prison. That reality saddens me. I tend to believe that's not so much the case in other communities; however, I also have enough sense to know that's not the case for every black male...but it seems that way. I don't agree with male homosexuality, but gay men have the right to do them (or anyone else), peacefully. This is kinda a fucked a story, but it provides a small bit of context about some things I've stated. I believe the midnight launch of Black Ops 2 is when this happened. My best friend is on the west coast (we're from the east coast), who's married with a little girl...my god daughter. He also became a police officer, which always seemed like an odd profession for him. Anyway, I pickup the game and get back home to try it out. His little brother sees that I'm online (he's an adult at this point maybe early 20's at the time), and sends me a party invite on Xbox Live. I accept it, and he's basically having a nervous breakdown. He begins going in about how everyone is getting on him about not being successful or "getting his shit together." I'm basically his big brother, so I'm giving him positive affirmations, and telling him I got his back if no one else does. He then states, you're close to our family, but we have a lot of demons, etc., etc. I'm like, "how so, what's up?" He then goes in on his brother (my best friend) stating that he was raping him all through high school. His brother and I were basketball stars in high school, and his brother is a relatively know college basketball star, who became a police officer/detective after an injury. He cited particular instances of physical abuse that I remembered. His brother would lock him in his room some days when I would come over and bring my OG Playstation. I asked did he tell his mom, he said she was on drugs and didn't believe him. His brother had a really good reputation. He then showed signs of sympathy for him, because his uncle was molesting him prior to him molesting his little brother. My ex-bff use to always go see his uncle for money, but I could never come inside of his house...it's was always an odd scenario. His brother was in middle school at the time of the rapes. I asked, "were you all maybe wrestling or playing around and he grabbed you," because it was so hard to imagine my best friend doing this. We'd always double date best friends, and had a lot of girlfriends prior to us settling down. His brother stated, "I know how all of this sounds to you, but nah, we were having FULL BLOWN GAY SEX!" I'm still devastated by hearing those words come out of his mouth. I'm gonna be fucked up for the rest of my life behind this shit! I cut off my best friend behind this shit, and will never forgive or accept an explanation for what he did, but I still respect free will. Sonic can be gay, that's his choice. You have to respect his skill at fighting games nonetheless.
We need to quit making a big deal out of this sort of stuff if we’re going to normalize it, which is the goal. At the same time I get that it requires some attention considering as a society we haven’t reached a point yet where announcing you’re gay is viewed to be as irrelevant as announcing you’re straight. Mainly I feel that the media needs to quit making headlines about people coming out as gay, it shouldn’t be made a big deal of, and ultimately the people that are in fact gay shouldn’t feel like they need to announce it or “come out”. It’s saddening to me, but I do feel like the media and even some ppl that are gay don’t help the cause when they make a big deal of it themselves. Telling the world your gay once is enough imo, you don’t owe it to anyone to keep repeating it.
You.don't.have.to.buy.the.dlc. Seriously. Just don't buy it. Vote with your wallet. It's not part of the main game. It's just bad side content. Kind of like a bad cosmetic skin for a shooter. I think Ubisoft is in the wrong but this is more of a "huh. that's dumb. Oh well." moment. You can literally just not pay 10$ for a bad dlc and not play it. It's that easy. It's not like this is hidden in the main game and you're forced to do it. This is side content that you need to opt in for. What a weird thread.
It would be nice to live in a world, where people wouldn't have the urge to state their sexual orientation.
I think sexuality has no place in gaming. I don't care if Ninja, Datto, Byf are gay or bi or straight and honestly I don't want to know. That's private. Should stay as such.
so, he's gay, so what? He deserves pat on the back or what?
Good for him. I'm straight.
Fucking report me, and get it over with. Put me out of my fucking misery. I try to come back here to give it a chance. But I’m tired of this fucking website, and it’s slow attempt to commercialize further, and further. A week ago someone here linked a post of mine to use it to sell a game to a potential buyer. Like it was a glowing review. It wasn’t.. It was straight up astroturfing, and I have this sneaking suspicion that you’re doing it as well. Just another fucking NeoGaf filled with wannabe corporate assholes.
LOL She speaks like a malfunctioning Stepford Wife.
Calling a spade a spade. If they were young boys of the same age that were local scallies/neds/chavs in the UK, people would be saying they got what they deserved. Everyone complaining that the guy will get a pass for being a white male but it feels like these are being given a pass for being female Admittedly, I’d not seen the point above before about how the guy started it. That changes things slightly. Either way - I’m not excusing the guys behaviour at all. Just saying - if they were my kids I’d be ashamed of the way they’re behaving
Well, she certainly learned her lesson. Don't piss someone off who is bigger than you.
Establishment Democrats would rather have a fascist government than one led by true leftists.
All I did was refer to actual FACTS of health and VR. You people are beyond the spectrum. I am done with this thread.
I disagree, imo it does, I already expanded on why even a small inclusion could have made a difference here:
is this a micro aggression?
On the surface yes, peel back a layer and it’s a multinational guilty of other morally questionable labour practices trying to lecture their customer base on being a man which is offensive enough. Taken in context and relation to what’s happening as a whole, and it’s part of a concerted effort to demonise masculinity which I don’t agree with
Nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day all you can be reasonably expected to do is treat other people with respect in regards to their preferred name and pronouns, if at the end of the day you can't see a trans person as anything other than their birth sex then that's perfectly fine, just don't be a raging asshole about it. Probably less than 1% of the population actually accepts trans people (talking about acceptance here not tolerance). Even as someone who meets the diagnostic criteria for GID myself, I still don't view transgender identities as valid barring a few exceptions.
I'm not trolling -_- but i guess you won't believe me. I'm just shocked about that bloodline stuff in those apologies, since one Era member told me she don't need to have a baby in the story. It's like she's forced to have a baby, i don't like that.
Fuuuuuuck the PRC and any mainlander swine stanning for it. Sent from my iPhone.
This is what happens when you don't have auteur vision holders and let beancounters make all the decisions. EA is dumpster fire just like Actard.
*shrug* I laughed.
Talking of which, I was very keen on getting a Mega Sg, but now that I have a MiSTer I'm not sure what added value I'll get (I don't have original carts to play)
Lmao who actually cares about fable 4? You really think anyone cares what Peter Molicule and his squad have to offer? Leave that shit in 2013.
Capcom must love their loyal PR here in Era.
Be careful bro, people will kill you because they seem to be working at Nintendo and even if they dont listen to us, customers, or dont release any relevant Game for 4 months it's ok, because it's Nintendo and they are great.
Indies are smartphone games. Other games between them and AAA announced for Switch Q1 are regular/poor quality. For example, Travis' reviews say that it's such a lineal game.
The game – already lacking in content – now consists of only a menu.
Nintendo Hardcore Fans:
Yeah, you are just hostile and wrong and entitled and I won’t engage with you anymore.
Gotta love the assumptions here. I've never read a comic, and hate war films. You have absolutely no idea what my life experiences are and what colors my perspective and context. Not sure how abandoning your family and running away to another country is "standing up to everyday injustice", but fine. Again, I wish this girl well, but I should be able to see her as something other than a "hero" without being seen as having malicious intent, as if viewing her as a hero is the only possible perspective one can have.There more than one way to assess certain actions, and more than one perspective can be reasonable. I mean, she abandoned her family and rejected all of Islam, so let's not pretend it's only the societal/cultural oppressive society in SA that she had a problem with. Not sure what's wrong with pointing that out. "Why do you give a fuck, this is really what you took away from reading all of this?" Why is everyone else in this thread allowed to give a fuck by commenting, and I'm not? Why are you so offended by the fact that I have a slightly different take? Not even sure what your comment means. I wish her well, but don't view her as anything close to a hero. I doubt this is some kind of radical opinion.
You should take your own advice, big man.
Stop making the thread about you you arrogant cunt
I don't listen to Chris Brown but also, nothing about that youtube still makes me want to click anywhere near it. The unshaven neck, the moustache(?), that shirt. Everything appears to be going poorly here. Moving right along.
Oooof, shoehorning my posts into random memes because you got called out on being objectively wrong, sure showed me :) Welcome to the ignore list with the rest of the bottom of the IQ barrel :) Back on topic, is the vaulting / terrain traversal at least fixed? How are SMGs now?
One of the most frequent requests we've received since launch has been for a forum bot that members can use to run giveaways safely and efficiently. You asked for it, and our team has been working hard to deliver. At last we're ready to show some results: Introducing ! To celebrate this launch we're holding our own inaugural giveaways with cool prizes. If you run into any bugs please contact . A true labor of love, GiftBot is being developed entirely in-house by our sleepless tech team. Coding GiftBot from scratch will allow us to fully customize and tailor its features over time to better respond to the needs of the community. The design plan was drawn up in close collaboration with moderators from SteamEra, a community that knows its way around giveaways like no other. GiftBot is a fully automated forum feature that takes the delicate work of running a giveaway safely out of human hands. The mechanical spin of its avatar is the only motion it will ever know (note: sorry, organics on ResetEra are still not allowed animated avatars). Like the that so crucially facilitated our first annual GOTY vote, GiftBot is a friendly and unarmed automation with no moderator functions. We're launching GiftBot with basic functionality that includes a First-to-Claim mode and a 24 Hour Raffle. Over time we intend to add many more features and options for users to customize how they want their giveaways to be run. By developing GiftBot ourselves, we've ensured that the sky is the limit! We are committed to the long term expansion and refinement of GiftBot as a service for the community. While GiftBot is meant to be a fun way for users to interact with their fellow ResetEra members, our lawyers have advised us to make a few things clear! For Givers: ResetEra, LLC is not responsible for any keys to submitted to GiftBot. Only submit keys to GiftBot that you are absolutely sure you want to give away or no longer want to use. For Receivers: GiftBot has no way to verify the validity of a key prior to giving it away. If you receive an invalid key from GiftBot, you have no recourse against either ResetEra, LLC or against the user who sponsored the giveaway (the "Giver"), though the Giver may offer you a replacement key if they so choose. Finally, neither ResetEra, LLC nor the Giver will provide technical support for the keys. If you have an issue with a key you receive through GiftBot, your only recourse is to contact the platform holder through which the key was to be redeemed for support. For Everyone: ResetEra, LLC makes no guarantee that GiftBot will be available at certain times or at any time. The services provided through GiftBot may be terminated at anytime and without notice. GiftBot is solely for the fun and amusement of ResetEra Members ("Members"), and ResetEra, LLC does not charge a cost to participate in GiftBot giveaways. However, GiftBot is only available to Members with an active account; if a Member's account is banned, either temporarily or permanently, then that Member will be unable to participate in GiftBot giveaways for the duration of their ban.
It's like that in so many countries around the world and a lot of them have way more "Human right violations" that are more extreme than anything China is doing but too many people here have a hard-on for shitting on China because they've become such a mainstay on the world stage as of late. They're flexing their wealth everywhere and people are flat out hating on them. It's a beautiful place to stay/live and has it's bad spots just like anywhere else in the world but everyone seems to want to focus on the smaller issues there ( which are serious by all means ) all while ignoring bigger issues in other countries because they're a World Power that is on the verge of surpassing the US on pretty much every level other than military might. The way the hive-mind is here you'd swear China is the second coming of Nazi Germany which is honestly hilarious given all the good things the country has done worldwide as a whole. It's all filled with a little jealousy, envy as well as low-key racism but they won't openly admit it here.
Good, maybe they'll make actual games now.
His question was based around the press release that said you could use Private Matches now to play with friends on other platforms. He asked how to add friends. I told him it goes by Name/Password. How long this has been possible matters zero, zilch, nada but...... Your contribution? "THIS HAS BEEN POSSIBLE FOR A LONG TIME". Yeah that really tells him what to do. At least he knows he could've done the thing he doesn't know how to do before today. Super helpful dude. Keep posting.
lol what kind of question is this? fucked mad bitches with 2 cats and a dog (they weren't involved)
You know it's bad when even the forum's biggest Ubisoft shill won't even try to defend this.
As long as the dlc is fun to play I don't care.
It means your fucking tolerating the conversion of a lesbian. You are tolerating a gay character being turned straight to suit the alt right agenda. You find it hot, isn't that why?
Seriously ? Why ? Damn, if they want to tell a story they can do what they want. You have some choices, yeah, but they can impose what they want for the series. Everyone is outraged by everything this days. I don’t have anything against LGBT but in this game you can have sex with the same sex so what is the problem? If it’s the story they want to tell, so be it. It’s only a game...
