GamingThread Kotaku: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Director Says 'We Missed The Mark' With Controversial DLC
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing concerns of LGBT issues as outrage culture, LGBT being a choice rhetoric, account in junior phase.
There needs to be a continuation of the lineage that you all like it or not, that is such a gamer's outrage for the fuck of it.. The name of the trophy is the only thing to get the tiniest bit worked up about if there's anything. And even then, how can anyone not see pass the point of view of the ones who decided on this. It's such a tiny thing when compared to the choices of which relationships you could pursue during the entire length of the game. If the point of the choices were to keep a open mind about relationships you'd choose, why not have a open mind over the actual narrative of the game that surrounds the lineage of assassins through times.

GamingThread Sonicfox: "I'm gay"
Reason User Banned (Permanent) - Homophobia
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.

GamingThread Sonicfox: "I'm gay"
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks) - Excusing homophobia
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.

Pointing out racism in art is pointless, unless the goal of the art is to be racist.

Honestly you’ve got no right to be offended. Its Assassin’s Creed. It’s premise doesn’t fit player choice. You’re reliving memories and through some plot contrivances can maybe affect them? But not really. Plus every game with player choice forces a decision/multiple on you. At the end of the day your character exists to serve the plot of the game, no matter what you specifically want.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling, account in junior phase.
This is one of those things that are nowhere near as prevalent or dramatic as the OP makes it sound when you only really play "western" games. Do you remember the Dead or Alive games? Yea theres a reanson they died out. What remains of these over the top grossly sexist games are generally found in the clearance section of unwanted games at a crappy games store. Now, crossing over to Japanese games... Well the last Japanese game i played was the Souls series. Other than that i avoid anything that has that "anime" aesthetic like the plague. "Fan service" isn't appealing to me at all. Things get more blurry when CDProject gets called out by people who dislike the what I assume is the female protagonist (I dont know much on the game) for wearing "sexy" underwear... In her house... After sex... So what? The argument is usually. "It doesn't have to be provocative, they could have picked a different color and/or underwear that showed less". Again, so what? Why should it NOT be provocative, why is that a bad thing?
