EtcetEraThreadRacist Karen hits a woman at a store, then starts acting like a victim by weaponizing racism by fake crying & throwing a tantrum. (See Staff Post)
Red Text There is nothing noble or helpful about hijacking a conversation regarding racist acts of violence by attributing the perpetrator's actions to mental illness. No one on Earth, not even psychiatric professionals, is capable of diagnosing a mental disorder from a single outburst caught on film. The constant attempts to do so do nothing but stigmatize the mentally ill, and ultimately, all this serves to do is to move sympathy away from the victim of racism to the perpetrator of it and is, in itself, a form a white supremacy. The simplest answer for Elphick's behavior, and other Karens who rage about minor inconveniences and direct their rage towards minorities and their allies, is that she as a white woman has been conditioned by society to behave in this way in order to achieve her goals. Supremacist socialization is not a mental health disorder. We will be going through all reports and posts; anyone who has already or continues to push this narrative without evidence of Elphick's medical history will be banned.
GamingThreadCDPR is a transphobic company. It's time we stop making excuses for them.
Red TextThis thread is absolutely NOT for discussion about CyberPunk 2077 gameplay impressions, hardware issues, or anything else like that. The thread title nor the OP has anything to do with those things, as you can obviously tell this thread is about CDPR's history of transphobia. Anyone using this thread to talk about CP 2077's gameplay will eat a hefty ban, this is absolutely the wrong thread for it. The CyberPunk 2077 thread was locked for a SINGLE DAY to honor a commitment about locking the OT in honor of trans day of remembrance, which fell the day after it's original release date. It will be reopened tomorrow. You can last one day without a thread about the game.
EtcetEraThreadBaltimore student passes 3 classes in 4 years, ranks near top half of class with 0.13 GPA (See Staff Post)
Red TextThe original version of this thread had a disappointing number of posters blaming the students and/or accusing the parents of not caring, and many of those posters had clearly not read the article. Not only does a school administrator admit that the school failed here, but when a 0.13 GPA is better than half the class, there are clearly broad systemic failures of a shocking magnitude. Students at this school are not being given a fair chance to succeed.

Red Text Furthermore, the OP has agreed that his decisions were reckless. Ultimately, we do not condone driving under the influence; anyone who wants to criticize and/or educate the OP for driving home after having consumed edibles is free to do so. Continued hostility towards the OP will be moderated as such.
Red TextMaking jokes and comments about non-human characters being examples of black characters due to stereotypical features is both racist and dismissive of the issue of media representation. Any posts that cross this line will continue to be moderated appropriately.

EtcetEraThreadSexy ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Costumes Just Hit The Internet (READ OP)
Red TextThis is a thread about a costume that sexually objectifies women from a show about brutal female oppression. Admitting that you do not know or understand the themes of the show while at the same time praising the costume adds nothing to the discussion and ignores the topic at hand. Further posts like this will be moderated as drivebys.
