As usual the OP is a total nut, but era treats them with their current standards like their normal people. Shock!
there is a weight lifter that couldnt win in men but now is a woman... its an unfair advantage for other women.
Fuck no, I won't reconsider it. They're literally siding with an oppressive dictatorship state that has been abusing and torturing their people for years. They're either stupid, or hypocrites.I've thought about it. See above.
Can platonic friendship still exist or are LGBT people trying to get rid of that?
Didn't know Era had this many psychopaths as members.
this is literally the dumbest fucking case of ACTUAL "whataboutism" ive seen on this increasingly deranged US-propagandized site and it will be glossed over we have an open call for invasion in the thread, tacit support of continuing (one of many) starvation embargoes for the purpose of "regime" change by the most actually authoritarian regime in the world (hint: it aint Cuba or North Korea lmao), apologism for the country respnsible for exporting more death, poverty, misery, and perennial destruction than any in history (hey remember that time in the 70's when the US govt infected the Cuban livestock supply and forced a mass slaughter of the island's swine? or chemically carpeted southeast asia resulting in birth defects to this day?), but yeah, a country with less people than fucking Ohio is just waiting to turn its commie bloodthirst out on the world if given the opportunity, but youll never see a "banned for racism" tag for this and when those with an actual interest in nuance are decried with any number of incoherent screams of "ultras", "anarchists", "tankies" labels, all that's left is the thundering silent disinterest of those same detractors when their own ostensibly "free" country jails and openly murders people for protesting police brutality, oil companies who do more damage than any country south of the rio grande could dream of, or simply suggest that maybe the people in the richest country in both past and current history by unimaginable proportions shouldnt have to be in debt for the rest of their lives for riding an ambulance, except for a "damn that sucks, anyway THIS OTHER COUNTRY'S GOVERNMENT IS SOOOO EVIL AMIRITE??". Disgusting. Moronic. Shameful. I constantly see people on this site make accusations of political repression, genocide, police states of countries and their people who they have no interest in beyond being on the "right" side of the (likely state-targeted) social media trend of the day, but pointing out the materially consequential hypocrisy of this ideology and "analysis" that leads nowhere but death and stupidity is labelled "whataboutism" and results in literal silencing if someone's anecdotal evidence of cuban exiles is weaponized here, it's just another piece of evidence for "regime change"; take the word of people living there, and it's "brainwashed", "tankie", "propaganda" etc. etc. We have elected officials of both US parties, people and places that we ACTUALLY have a material connection to who are ostensibly in the interest of bettering the lives of people here AND abroad in places like Cuba, beating their chest with this imperialist bullshit to spring up nationalist fervor for their electoral campaign warchests... and nothing. quelle surprise. this site is a fucking clown show
I want to see this same amount of outrage the next time we hear about the new Dragon Quest.
This isn't her first "mistake".Isn't she the same person that was ok with killing white babies? The admins need to do something about her or she needs to stfu already.Can't believe some of you call yourselves progressive and have these kind of takes.Makes me sick.
Wait a second. I have literally been racially abused by mentally ill white women too. Please do not lecture me on what racism is. Nor do you need to be a mental health professional to see mental health issues. I too have history here. So thank you, but no thank you. My opinion is not invalid because you are a mod.
Time to stop downplaying the mental health crisis, America.
Don't fucking assume that I'm a fucking asshole just because I'm white (which you didn't even know before this post) you piece of fucking trash. You should be banned for that shit. I also love that everything you said doesn't even sound like you know shit but just acts like you know shit based on current inadequacies. Are you Russian? It sounds like you're not at all, but I'll certainly stand to be corrected if you are. Just sounds like you're another mad white kid thinking you're making a difference. If you can assume I'm white, I can sure as hell do the same back you pale brother. Whether you want to believe it or not, white people can absolutely campaign for this change in voice actors, and actors as well. And as much as I might fucking hate to admit , those voices are still potentially the most powerful. Double standards can suck my fucking dick. I read comics when I was a kid. A lot. And I don't like the idea of Alexi being cast as an American, especially when we're at a point where that shit is finally starting to be conquered at least a little. That's from me, a 31 year old American white dude. How do you think some Russian kids may feel that grew up seeing this American person featured in a film as their hero?
All this furry fuckery ruined anthromorphic animals. :(
Something was bothering me earlier when I looked into this. The responses about potential predators... I dismissed them at first, but it was too troubling for me to ignore, so I started thinking... Was that trans person actively preying on them? If not, then they shouldn't be concerned. While not common, at least that I know of, cis-male and females don't tend to prey on each other in the bathrooms. Again as far as I know, women only worry about men entering their bathrooms and preying on them. Which means they are worried because she was a male in terms of sex. However, she identifies as female and I assume it works in terms of gender identity too. Trans-women use the women's bathroom/spa's because that is how they identify. On top of that, they likely feel safe amongst their own sex. I'm probably making huge assumptions here, and may be commenting on something I don't completely understand. Any trans people feel free to speak up. But I feel that they are basically calling for forcing trans-people to use bathrooms and spa's of the opposite sex, which they may not feel comfortable in. That's segregation. And besides, what about trans-people's fears for being preyed on by the opposite sex if forced to use their bathrooms and spa's? Anyways, those were just my thoughts. /rant
OK im gonna toss a bigger lens on this. I know it's simple for ERA and most of us to say yeah, no big deal, rah rah trans rights. But IRL is not so black and white/simple. How would you navigate this to the bigger public? And Wi Spa, as seen in the conan video, shows it's not just the changing room, you're in the spa naked too. As someone said, the past old thinking, or more so, for most folks, probably aren't used to seeing peen in what's normally the cishet women's area. Re Tokyo funks comment: nudity would be normal yes, but in what's a segregated gender spa, you'd be normally used to seeing only one genitalia or something. It throws things for a curve when you see something different. It's not I don't hope to see any nudity, it's that they're seeing opposite genitalia, which currently is not the norm yet. Now I'm not sure of the full story now of this, some said it's fake outrage. video says its the changing room, article mentions it was in the actual spa itself.
Aren't these early "reviews" just paid lies?
Judge for yourself:Furthermore:Some pictures from the article: I looked online and found the book that the article is based on , though you can also purchase it on Amazon. A friend gave this article to me. Judge for yourself, but it's basically questioning the narrative about the treatment of American POWs in the Vietnam War and even compares the treatment of American POWs to the renditions under the CIA's Operation Phoenix at one point.
Is this what a rogue Tyler impression looks like? So many locks/unlocks going on here.
I don't have to defend that at all. I can support the revolution that kicked out a and still criticise it for poor subsequent decisions.I can firmly, fully, say with all of my heart: No, you don't. Very fucking clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. I can with 99.99% certainty claim you have never opened up a single page of socialist theory. Whatever, I am out of this thread, peace and fuck America. Lift the goddamn embargo already.
it's in there for a reason. and it does improve performance mentally which is why it's on the list. I didn't say anything bad about her. She just has to make better decisions and you pulling the race card is uncalled for. None of this has anything to do with raceYou labelling me a jerk is ridiculous. Why am I a jerk? Because I'm not joining the hive mind in pushing for a rule change for something that's been in existence for quite some time? I'm not saying this to someone with PTSD. I'm saying this about an Olympic athlete who broke a rule everyone including her knew about. Okay her mom died I get it. But you're telling me there was no other way for her to cope besides smoking a joint. GTFO with that nonsense. She excepted her punishment and you should as well. People like you always looking for the double standard for when it best suits their narrative I tell you. The sense of entitlement here is just ridiculous and y'all should be ashamed of yourselves.
If that was the case, you would have directly quoted me about Rex, instead of talking past me. Just like Drewton did. Just like you all do. Within my first few posts since coming back from a month long ban. And you're jumping on it. Isn't it enough i walked away from the SW OT? You fuckers gotta follow me around other SW threads as well. It's. so. fucking. tiresome You wanna have a nice SW convo. I'm more than happy too. But keep your little bitchy ass bullshit to your Discord. Where i know you all love to take the piss.
Oh hell nah. Chris Paul hugging it out with Trumper Lil Wayne? FUCK THAT PUTO
star wars is bad
lol this is such a ResetEra thread title
There definitely needs to be something done but making shoplifting a felony is not the answer. There is a middle ground for punishing repeat offenders, whether that's something like community service or some other solution. You're arguing with a libertarian who is masquerading as someone with liberal ideology. is not interested in any sort of actual solution that takes into account social equity, balance or justice because their sole interestThe fact that you can imply that you have any sort of liberal ideals while repeatedly using libertarian/conservative propoganda language would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad and obvious. Remember where you crowed about how much money you made off Facebook, a company that literally ? Then you sidestepped a lot of the very valid criticism that people had for Facebook and how utterly morally bankrupt it is to celebrate the success of a fundamentally immoral company that, among other things:This is, of course, only the tip of the iceberg. Your only response was talking about what a wonderful place it is to work, completely ignoring the fact that all the benefits you espoused are built off a literal pyramid of human misery and death. I don't know what you are but you're not liberal and I'm not entirely convinced you have a conscience or any sort of moral compass.
Bull shit is everywhere. Fuck these guys. They are the most retarded folks.
game of thrones idk why you would be looking for sex in a franchise aimed at children and poorly adjusted adults (marvel)
Whose mother was he calling? Joe Biden's mom died in 2010.
Performative outraged, extremely online, US centric leftists on this site is fucking worst "The full quote isn't much better" Be fucking glad you have a national leader who says that full quote, privileged dipshit
It's a racist stab at white people.
It’s ok to like stuff for babies, I certainly do, but people should also recognize and admit that they like stuff for babies instead of basing their entire persona around it.
On your first to me, you brought up Trevorrow's rejected DotF script where Palpatine only appeared as a hologram cameo to disprove and claim that Palpatine or a similar Palpatine-like big bad was planned/one of the narrative marks for Episode IX . . . . which is a weird thing to say because the fact that that script did not pass mustard and was REJECTED is actually doing the opposite of what you are arguing for and leads credence to what KK and CT's is saying. Turns out the leaked DotF script is just the version of the script and there was a version where they are using an under-developed, female Knight of Ren to carry the big bad/final villain/Palpatine role. . Like i said before, it was a selfish creative move for Rian to kill the Palpatine-expy, the one setup to be the final villain, Snoke, in TLJ as it put Trevorrow/Connolly and Abrams/Terrio in a difficult creative position forcing them to ass-pull solutions to the trilogy's missing final villain problem.Kathleen Kennedy, JJ Abrams and Colin Trevorrow needed a threatening, larger-than-life, Palpatine-like final villain to carry the 3rd movie of what suppose to be a crowd-pleasing, kid-friendly, tentpole, blockbuster Star Wars trilogy. But freakin' Rian decided to: - kill the Palpatine-expy, Snoke, that was originally setup to be the final viallin - kill Phasma, another gets-killed-with-no-development character like Snoke - refuse to develop the Knights of Ren - turn Hux into a punchline - turn Kylo into a "humanized", pathetic loser . . . . in Episode 8. He really seems intent to make sure Episode 9 creatives don't have properly setup villains to use and make their job more difficult.Sketchy set of credentials there, anonymous forum poster, but nice typing skills. If you wanna go all the way, maybe you should add a verifiable name, social media profile and picture not dissimilar to the of the i before to make your claims just as believable and authoritative as them! Maybe if you could also avoid touting your surface-level '' of story structure which amounts to nothing more than "b-b-but Act 2 is where da heroes are suppose to be challenged, TLJ did its job" completely glossing over its canon problems with the IP and it's failure to properly pick-up and develop the plot threads coming from TFA like a proper sequel should especially the villains as superior, people here might actually entertain the notion that you have screenwriting chops.Like i said earlier, all these mantra of "story trumps canon" and "enabling creatives to break canon" does not really hold-up in the face of LucasFilm's history and business realities. . And you, an anonymous forum poster, could try doing blanket statements again to convince people that "TLJ did not break canon" but it's not going to work. The energy-shield piercing Holdo maneuver/hyperspace ramming retroactively breaks the established canon/internal consistency of the WW2-style space battles in Star Wars from episode 1 to 9. You just need to disable the engines, the power sources or the bridge anyway, not structurally crack them in 2. As for Flashback Luke, Rian DELIBERATELY CHEAPED OUT and did not provide setup or context on Luke's attempted murder on his nephew because he just wanted a quick scene to provide some harder kick to Rey's turn: . I mean who cares if it goes against Luke's last known in-continuity characterization from the climax of RotJ where Luke redeemed his Sith Lord father through love and non-violence, right? Ain't nobody gonna remember that piece of ancient history. Rey's turn needs that extra emotional kick . . . .. I bring up the shooting script alongside the treatments because by the time Rian started working on his TLJ script, , he would have a good idea of where the TFA story is going to go. He was not waiting for it to finish as he was hired in or around the time the TFA shooting script was finished and barring dialogue and scene adjustments, the basic TFA story is not going to be radically changed anymore . . . . but he still made a conscious choice to do his own thing and ignore or did not develop properly the plot threads that was setup in TFA's story. Just because you can does not mean you should. And basing from the leaked Abrams's and draft treatments that are floating out there and what , well, Rian, totally did ignored them too.Who was that that started this specific debate, again? You know, the one who belittled his fellow Star Wars fan feelings of disappointment at the way Ackbar's death was handled in TLJ via a throwaway line of dialogue . . . . Oh, right, it was YOU!: .
It took me a very long time to consider, but I believe C-cup size is the greatest. The most amazing tit size, that will still be the most preferable after a certain age where it will inevitably start to sag. I believe in C-cup!!. What is yours?? Gay men can answer.
That’s a really edgy way to say someone was acting like a jerk.
Assulting people, saying vile things or even fake fainting isn't on the same level of weirdness as what I saw in that video personally. Like a whole store was carrying on as normal around this person. If your reaction to anything is to act like this you have real problems. And if this was calculated?! If she did this whole act on purpose?!?! Somehow thinking that it would draw sympathy. That's even more absurd behaviour. Like I said, normal racist white people don't act like that. If we just cropped the video so you just saw this racist white lady's actions and didn't know what she was reacting to, you would think something very strange was happening. I don't think we would point at this and go "ah, just a typical racist white woman". And none of that means that she isn't a racist white woman. Amy Cooper is acting nothing like this other racist white woman. Their behaviour is, in my opinion, planets away from each other. This racist white woman isn't calling the cops or demanding to speak to the manager. That's the racist white woman playbook, instead you have all this weird other shit. This is a white woman in a store filled with other white women, acting in a way that gets basically none of their sympathy (I think maybe one woman says something). That's not normal to me. The victim should be the focus, and it seems like overall it is here. I'm glad that Ijema was able to get some donations to help her out, she more that deserves it after how she was treated. Ultimately, I believe that we can have the nuance of recognising the erratic nature of the attackers behaviour (if it seems that way to you) while still putting victims first and helping them out. Like I said in another post I don't like the idea of bad faith whiteness defining the way I want to talk about an issue or incident. The fact that some white people are going to try and push the fact that this racist white woman is just "mentally ill" as a way of absolving her, doesn't mean that if I personally think something is mentally weird with her that I won't point that out. That's just a side observation to me, not something that defines this. The only reason I'm talking about it now is because people are currently arguing about it.
That they ended. And the hours of entertainment the infighting between fans gave me.
I really couldn’t imagine being this invested on whether or not a fictional character could beat up a real human, or getting upset over any part of it. It really is a movie, it never happened, move the fuck on with the hero worship it didn’t actually happen.
Fucking evil scum. Comparable to a fascist party that rose to power early to mid 1900’s.

Ever wondered why so many weebs want to go “teach english” in Japan?
Should we just stop dividing athletes by gender at all then? Trans who identifies as women will have an advantage and those who identify as men will have a disadvantage as it stands now right?
ok im clearly gonna back off this topic. I never once stepped in for the specific reason of trying to say she shouldn't be punished for her behavior. I guess im alone on this one. People can be fucked up and you can personally have an opinion that you hope they get their mental issues diagnosed by someone so that their lives get better. I never said she should get a pass on her actions. Not once. Shouldn't we all want this type of absurd behavior to get help? Her racism her anger her crying hysterically. I just hope she sees someone for help. When I watch that video I see a woman who has issues and needs help.
A hardback first edition copy of The Philosophers Stone sold for more than a first edition Don Quixote on Sotheby's the other day.
ERA doesn’t give a shit. You bring up dead brown people and ERA will just groan and scoff at someone that has the bring up the dead people again. Like it’s such an inconvenience to them. I’ve never looked at this forum the same since I brought it up and I the response I got was “here we go again with the people that got blown up.” I legit hate all of you and your idolization of your garbage presidents and this garbage country full of garbage people.
I’ve matched with transgender people by accident on various dating apps because they put their settings as females looking for males. I pretty much end it respectfully by me telling them that I’m flattered but straight and they all have taken it well. One person was surprised on how nice I was. It might help them (on Tinder at least) if some changed their settings around, but what do I know?
