ReasonUser banned (1 week): inflammatory commentary in a sensitive thread
I'm not being holier than thou. I'm just laying out how the entire rest of the world has seen this shit clearly for ages but some Americans (obviously not on this forum) keep trying to convince themselves it won't get this bad.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Defending body shaming; history of infractions for inflammatory behaviour
I can't believe people are being banned for not getting behind this shit.
I teach sports for a living. Even if they're not necessarily "glorifying" this shit, showing that's it's a positive way of living and treating your body is harmful to society.
This is not positive, it's not friendly, it's not cool to teach kids that this is okay. Call it fat shaming or whatever nonsense term you want to justify it, encouraging or promoting this lifestyle is 100% not a good thing in a society where obesity and unhealthy living is now accepted as the norm.

And yet this thread has people in here claiming sexism and misogyny for a genre of music that is often, and debatably the biggest cause of, harmful stereotypes and sexist tropes in the industry. to young girls.
If anything a lot of PopERA zealots are being more sexist by propping up and supporting this bullshit.
Soccer fans have the most heated rivalries because they need something, anything, to do to quell the mind numbing tedium of watching a soccer match. I'd rather get stabbed or punched in the face than sit through three hours of that bullshit too.
