EtcetEraThread Different types of handshakes
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Racism Over a Series of Posts; History of Severe Infractions
So I was at a conference in Mexico two years ago and something which really stuck with me is how I met so many people. The people at the conference more mostly white, but when I care across a black person, I stupidly offered a different type of handshake. Basically, instead of the normal “dead fish” handshake... I gave him the “hand wrestler” and he literally just looked at me in disgust and didn’t want to shake my hand. I was a little confused for a while, because in my home country, I’d shake my black friend’s hands like this all the time and they’d be cool with it. I guess in mexico, that particular guy didn’t like being treated differently, but I wish instead he just just felt that I was very comfortable around him and if I felt I could, I’d shake everybody’s hand like that. Anyway, I just thought i’d share the thought that maybe I try to shake your hand this way because I thought you’re cooler than the rest, not just cos you’re different. Most of all, I found it strange because I’m usually the different one cos I’m Asian and in my community, I was pretty much the only Asian when I was growing up. I’m drunk.

GamingThread CDPR tweets trash tweet about trans people AGAIN this time from GOG (Read OP)
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Racism, history of severe infractions
I wasn’t that surprised at all once I saw CDPR in the thread title. They are from Poland afterall, and I have experience insane levels of racism coming from them within my community. Against blacks, Asians, and anybody non-white. I think they are the most openly and causally racist people I’ve ever met.

GamingThread PS4 Documentary: How Sony Became the King of Consoles Again
Reason User Warned: System Warring
Seems like a lot of what you’re talking about comes from Xbox one fans trying to downplay sony’s success this gen. That’s fine though, it’s probably pretty painful for Xbox diehards, but I personally wouldn’t downright call it console-warring.

GamingThread It's time we talk about portuguese representation in games or the lack of it
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing concerns about representation through 'forced diversity' rhetoric, previous infractions for similar behavior.
At the risk of being banned (yet again). I really hate all these representation concerns in games and in media in general. I’m not being dismissive, but why are we forcing creatives to represent certain ideologies, cultures or races. Shouldn’t creatives be left to do what they want and we as consumers choose with our wallets? I’m chinese, born in Ireland, which is quite a rarity. Should I try to be making some noise about the Chinese/Irish representation in games? As I don’t think I’ve ever seen it. At the end of the day, we are all part of one race, the human race. As cliché as that may be, I seriously wish people could keep that in mind.

GamingThread It's 2018. Counter Strike has been around for 18 years and you still can't play as a woman.
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Dismissing representation concerns as "identity politics".
Red Text Mod Edit: This post has been edited back to its original state for transparency.
Woo boy, I wrote a post for this thread, but deleted it instead because this shit is toxic and I couldn’t care less, but one thing I will say is: fuck identity politics.

GamingThread Sony taking 22% cut from charity Overwatch skin (Developing, Read OP)
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory Derail + Promoting conspiratorial medical advice
To be honest, I personally do not donate to cancer research even though my own father passed away from cancer. Through my research, I have found that a vast, vast majority of charitable donations to cancer research goes towards salaries, and (most importantly) diagnosis methods and equipment, rather than cure or prevention. This is not a health forum, (obviously), but there is very strong links between Breast Cancer and iodine deficiency. One needs the correct type of iodine (Lugol's Solution is often cited as being the best). There are many reports of women painting the iodine on their breasts and the cancer reducing or going away completely. Obviously, do your own research. There are many, many, many positive health benefits to iodine. People raising pitch-forks against Sony: I personally find it distasteful using 'Charitable Donation' to promote goods and products. With the amount of money these corporations are making, they could help propagate the idea of real health and not this culture of mass-medication. I sometimes find people make donations to charities to ease their own conscience, to make them feel like they're contributing something or helping the cause in some way. I, myself was like this in the past. But the best way is to educate yourself and then educate people close to you.
