EtcetEraThreadSouth Park mocks trans athlete with a transphobic episode
ReasonUserBanned (Duration Pending): Dismissing concerns around transphobia over a series of posts.
The subject doesn't really matter to me personally, the biggest crime is that episode simply wasn't funny. You can make fun of anything as long as it's entertaining and has a point, this did neither.
Eh, the show's always been hit or miss. When it hits it is great, when it misses it misses big.

ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Community Generalizations; Accumulated Infractions
This community is almost the definition of 'cut off your nose to spite your face'.
People can't do good and bad things, everything is black or white. Either you're a perfect person or you're The Devil.
Nobody is allowed to be a flawed idiot that might actually not be the definition of evil.
EtcetEraThreadWhy do people warn others about DUI Checkpoints
Reason User banned (2 weeks): inflammatory comparison
Anyone defending these bits of nonsense because of how much DUI is a terrible crime (which it is), would you agree that making child porn is at least as bad?
So, if you're okay with random cars being stopped for 'DUI', are you okay with random houses being entered and searched, 'to stop CP'?
They're terrible crimes, and random searches may just save someone. Are you okay with cops forcibly entering your house at any time to make sure no kids are being hurt (and also that you aren't doing anything else that may be considered wrong)?
I know that's an extreme example but the fundamental principle is the same -- you shouldn't ever be subject to a random search/examination without cause.

ReasonUser banned (1 week): concern trolling and misrepresenting users concerns
I don't understand why it's been considered not only okay but almost obligatory for this community to basically backhand-shame anyone that would find a pretty woman with those features to be attractive. I'm not even being remotely sarcastic or joking. I've been partial to that sort of thing myself, admitted at risk of becoming a target or paraiah on what's acceptable, and what's gaudy/wrong/insulting/whatever that billboard is supposed to be.
ReasonUser Warned: Downplaying the importance of progressive efforts
This place would be so much better if everyone would stop trying to out-woke each other and just talk games. Technical aspects, gameplay, story.
Not, how offended can we get about anything.
So very much better.
