EtcetEraThread A friend cut me off over my stance against circumcision
Reason User banned (3 days): Inappropriate generalisations, body shaming
It's hardly a surprise. Look up any study done around the visual appeal of a circumcised to uncircumcised penis and people especially women prefer the look of a circumcised one. That includes Europe which is amazing because its not even a common procedure over there (Only 20%) Now if I grew up on a farm and didn't know I had such options then yeah I might think my corn husk / ant eater was fine but I didn't and thus I don't. You thinking just cause its normal means people aren't allowed to have an opinion about it makes no sense as an argument. There are all kinds of "normal" things you can have because of the genetic lottery that may be "normal" but not pleasing to look at.

EtcetEraThread The New York Times Editorial Board endorses *both* Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for president
Reason User Warned: Trolling
No. I think it's just good that the NYT endorsed two women, and that one of them is Warren, which I support. The outrage here was basically preprogrammed since everyone (rightfully) expected the NYT to endorse a centrist and that Bernie wouldn't be endorsed. But instead of being "happy" that Warren was (also) endorsed everyone's smashing NYT because they avoided to choose a side. Which apparently you have to do in 2020 if you don't want to be called Nazi scumbags (sic!).

Red Text All right, let's try this again. This is a topic that merits attention, but it needs to happen without snide or hostile remarks, pre-emptive or otherwise, and without glib polls with troll options. We are rebooting this with a new, proper poll, and we lifted some of the previous bans to give this a second chance. These were the result of us moving hastily to try and stay on top of things, and we apologize to anybody who feels unfairly treated. That said, any sort of deliberate provocation going forward will be met with harsher bans.

EtcetEraThread Is it just me, or have postings on Era kind of slowed down?
Reason User Banned (permanent): inflammatory metacommentary
As a lurker who came over after Neogaf, I find myself checking the site less and less. - The trigger happy ban policy is absurd. I get the impression users are scared to have an opinion that doesn't fit the mods agenda. This leads to nothing more than echo chamber with no real discussion to be had. Imagine in your personal life if you shut down every conversation where you disagreed with someone. - Awful topic threads. The same posters over and over posting personal topics that are of no interest to anyone but themselves, to get a sense of validation that I assume is absent in their own lives. - Negativity and toxicity. The constant bickering is exhausting. It feels like everyone is playing morality top trumps, trying to out do each other and be faux outraged by any slightly divisive opinion. - I hate Trump as much as anyone, but the constant daily threads about him and his party on here are depressing. It would be nice to have a break for a bit. I swear posters get off on posting about his latest bullshit. We get it. He's a total prick. - Opinion threads posted as fact like a BuzzFeed clickbait headline. - Threads with people threatening to take their own lives. This is a serious topic obviously, but it seems to be the same people over and over who never take onboard any of the genuinely thoughtful and caring feedback from other posters. I know this is a complicated topic, and these people deserve and need attention and help, but I wish just they would help themselves. I feel like stepping away from Era and its negativity would probably do them some good. It's just all so tiresome. I think I'm done with the forum, checking it out of a daily reflex doesn't add anything positive to my life tbh.

"I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your experiences and history," sounds like a lot of "centrists" who believe in civil rights but don't understand that economic justice will help poor minorities. Here's one for you: “It didn't cost the nation one penny to integrate lunch counters. It didn't cost the nation one penny to guarantee the right to vote. But now we are dealing with issues that cannot be solved without the nation spending billions of dollars and undergoing a radical redistribution of economic power.” - MLK Jr. But apparently, that's ignorant to you.

EtcetEraThread A friend cut me off over my stance against circumcision
Reason User Warned: The religious custom described is only practiced by a fringe and extremist minority and not at all mainstream. Please avoid potential misinformation or generalizations in sensitive discussions.
I'm non-circumsized and did have a minor UTI when I was 6 or so because my single mother did not know to educate me on how to properly wash my Penis. I had a quick round of anti-biotics and a little chat from a Doctor, and it's been issue-free for 25 years. So I can believe that this is not a super uncommon thing to happen in the life of an uncircumsized boy. A search for more serious problems related to foreskin isn't turning up a whole lot, although circumcision is a surgery and has risks of infection itself. Especially in parts of the world where you have religious figures with improper medical training performing Brit Milah instead of surgeons simply doing the procedure in a sterile environment. I mean, for fucks sakes, a traditional Brit Milah involves a Rabbi sucking on the foreskin before performing the incision. Super, super unsanitary and frankly fucking disgusting conceptually.

Reason User banned (1 week): peddling dangerous medical misinformation
First, he's probably Jewish or Islamic. Both religions have their traditions. In Europe, sure, it's rare outside Jewish communities. In the US however, it's very common even among non-Jews. That is because there is medical evidence that suggests it's more hygienic. In fact, MOST men in the USA are circumcised. Like 80-90% of the male population in the country are. Statistically, half of all non-circumcised men will contract a medical condition related to their foreskin. It should be considered equivalent to a vaccination - sure it's optional, but it's not smart to not get a circumcision if the opportunity is present.

EtcetEraThread "Why Are We Celebrating Lizzo's Body?"-Jillian Micheals
Reason User Banned (permanent): misogyny, account in junior phase
I can’t stand Lizzo. I think she is being used as a passive aggressive dig at black women, a caricature that the dominant class pretends to find appealing, knowing full well how embarrassing many of us in the black community find her. And our embarrassment doesn’t stem from her weight, our community embracing many beautiful and strong black women whose weight wasn’t considered ideal: Aretha Franklin, Esther Rolle, Queen Latifah, Etta James.. So when people pull that bullshit argument to the effect of, “you don’t like her because of her weight,” give them a history lesson. We don’t like her because she’s a minstrel act and gladly parades her buffoonish ass before the public eye for whatever dollars white daddy throws her way. The idea of young black girls looking up to her makes me want to vomit.
