No, Jim didn't claim the game has MTX. He was talking about the publishers and industry in general, not Outriders and not People Can Fly.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissing concerns of cultural appropriation, previous ban for excusing blackfacce
Cultural appropriation is such a stupid, idiotic takeaway from this, and all other cases it's been mentioned. Culture is ment to be shared, that's why we have culture. I've never heard about anyone being angry because someone has mimiced or weared anything from their culture. It's always a single person or something being offended by someone else. To quote Stephen Fry: "So fucking what". It's stupid and people that say others can't look like or dress like some cultures is disgusting and pathetic.

GamingThread Overwatch's new Mei skin draws criticism for cultural appropriation (Read staff post)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing concerns of cultural appropriation
I fully get that there's a history around black hair, and if people take issue with it, who am I or anyone else to say they can't. But I personally just can't get behind saying some people are only allowed to do their hair in certain ways. It's hair, most people have it, and while it comes it different textures, colours, and temperaments, it's still hair at the end of the day. Were it being done to mock a culture, or as a costume, that's a whole other thing, but it doesn't sound like that's the case here. To the other strand in this thread, it is absolutely baffling there is not a black woman in Overwatch. It's been 4 years since I played it, and it's wild none of the characters added have been black women.

An article on this popped up on my Twitter feed a few days back and I was so confused as to what the source of the criticism is. I've not seen one thread on Reddit, or Era, about this until now. Publications jumping on stories that are, in my opinon, not an issue, while ignoring real issues that need highlighting.

GamingThread Overwatch's new Mei skin draws criticism for cultural appropiation
Reason User banned (1 month): false equivalence around concerns of cultural appropriation
I'll admit, I've always been a bit confused by applying "cultural appropriation" to hairstyles and fashion. I can completely understand the upset if it's something religious or spiritual, or if the adopters are deliberately trying to rewrite the history of the fashion choice in question, but otherwise... Isn't this just a sign that your culture is awesome? You're heading towards a Civ culture victory. Maybe America should be mad that the world is wearing blue jeans? I don't think anyone using this hairstyle, in games or MMA, is trying to hide the fact that it's a traditionally black hairstyle. I think they just recognise its value. Is that bad?

So we are hating on Overwatch because it doesn't have a black woman? It is coming in OW2 which is good, but Overwatch has one of the best diverse cast of characters. It is one of the few (or only?) big games with good Arab representation from its cast to the maps. Ana is one of my favorite video game characters of all time. Also, please don't get anger at me if you hate Blizzard for other reasons that I'm not aware of. I'm just talking about Overwatch here as someone who played the game.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending) Concern trolling in a thread about cultural appropriation, previous egregious offenses for dismissing racism and transphobia
I totally agree. I think we should list up every race’s unique hairstyles and make sure no other race uses them. Especially fictional characters, because that could set a bad precedent for impressionable children who might want to have the freedom to look and feel the way they wanted during their very limited time existing in this world.

So basically the issue isn't overwatch, but people are angry because this Chinese fighter wears her hair a certain way? I'm sorry, but I don't think hairstyle should be considered any kind of cultural appropriation, I've known people of all races that wear their hairstyle in all sorts of ways. This just seems ridiculous.
