EtcetEraThread Sales at Chinese Restaurants Plummet Following Coronavirus Panic
Reason User Banned (3 months): excusing xenophobia
I think the fear is that Chinese Americans are more likely to have had contact with Chinese people, or even possibly have traveled to China recently themselves, than average. That, plus evidence that some carriers of Coronavirus may be asymptomatic. It’s an infinitesimal chance, but I get it.

EtcetEraThread So... Only 2.45% of trans people in the UK can marry as their own gender...
Reason User banned (3 Months): Transphobic rhetoric
To play devil's advocate for a moment, there are likely to be people (specifically people born as boys) who may still be going through puberty at age 16. From that point of view I feel like I understand the age limit for changing one's gender being set at 18.

Reason User Banned (1 month): downplaying xenophobia
This. People are freaking out. There are headlines of how people have been evacuating various Chinese cities to head elsewhere. Stories about how people who have visited China have landed in other countries with the virus. Logical or not, people are connecting a greater perceived risk of catching the virus from a place which may be linked to it.

EtcetEraThread Is it ok to be uncomfortable?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Mansplaining and sexism and trolling over a series of posts
so I’ve been here “listening” to what everyone said and taking it to heart instead of debating or arguing, and I appreciate the input. I think it’s good to learn from mistakes, I’ve never really been in this kind of situation before usually people in my circle enjoy a bit of healthy debate, and perhaps this wasn’t healthy debate. And I’m at fault. Which is totally ok and why I asked. It’s good to learn yea? I’d love to respond to everyone but instead I’ll reply to two for now. First:you are the guy that evaded a permaban and types all kinds of moral ethical dilemma bullshit about that ban, as well as about weird ass shit in the nintendo direct threads. Not sure what your deal is but seem like youve got some problems. Probably shouldn’t be commenting on other people. Also the last thread wasn’t a troll, it was a real situation and real story played up for some laughs. Not all jokes hit, but if all jokes are trolls then we gotta ban about half the board. Get over yourself.now I don’t know if you deliberately misread what I said, but the first thing I said that I agreed with them that women shouldn’t be made to feel uncomfortable, sexually or not. I am totally onboard with that and I explained that, and also that I didn’t know what the actress said or what she felt so I couldn’t really argue about that. I think the biggest thing was I kept going when I obviously should have stopped, and my gfs sister (mainly) kept insisting that the point wasn’t the foot stuff and Tarantino, but being uncomfortable in general. Again I’m ok to be wrong, I’m happy to learn from mistakes, thats what makes us better people, and I won’t make that mistake again, but at no point did I even insinuate that it’s ok to force women to do something against their will. I’m still ok to be the asshole, I accept that and I’ll apologize to her. Edit: and the people harping on the marvel statement that that would be the part that people turn on me ... again that was a joke, and a hopefully obvious one. It might not have landed, but it’s a joke about how defensive marvel fans are around here. Whether you find it funny or not it’s ok, just relax a little bit.

Yes because I suggested beating my child. Maybe I made my point poorly but some people in this thread seem to think that any kind of hitting or grabbing even when the child is in mortal danger or at risk of harming themselves is a bad thing. If my child is about to walk into traffic or jam a fork where it doesn't belong I'll be using whatever force is necessary to remove that risk of harm.

Reason User Banned (1 Day): Hostility; Prior Related Infractions
Stop all the cringe landlord rhetoric, stop browsing economically clueless tankie subs like chapo and breadtube and stick to what economists say. Listen to the experts, like we kept telling all the Brexiters. You need to build more. Fixing the price does the opposite - it disincentivizes building. I won't repeat what you can find with a single google search. Economists have exhaustively studied rent control and the concensus is crystal clear. Honestly, I sometimes use rent control as a way to probe how one arrives at their decisions. If you are in favor of it, I know for a you've never read a study on it or have any clue of its ramifications. Makes me wonder whether your other political views are as thinly founded.

EtcetEraThread His dialysis center won’t allow his life-size Trump cutout, so this man refuses to go
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory False Equivalence and Antagonizing Other Users Over Multiple Posts
I don't know him or his story, and neither do you. It's funny that you bring up nazis, because as we know, a major aim of their self-targeted propaganda was to dehumanize the Jews so that they could rationalize their expulsion or death with no moral conflict and minimal cognitive dissonance. I see the same thing happening today on both ends of the political spectrum. Comparing people ITT to Nazis is NOT what I'm doing with this observation (nor do I even privately think that's at all merited) so don't take that out of context. I'm nonetheless struck by a pang of irony due to people in this thread breezily dismissing a human life because of assumptions they've made about him as an "other," and the categories they've assigned to him based on an article (or, more likely, just the information in the OP). I know how insufferable I sound, and if this thread was just filled with people calling this dude an idiot and making fun of his shoes that'd be one thing. It's the wishful thinking that his end should come and that we'd be better for it that rubs me the wrong way.I have zero issues with people calling out his idiocy and mocking him for it. That's not what I'm talking about here. If you feel like I'm being self righteous you need to take a step back and ask yourself why. I'm just having a hard conversation.

Reason User Banned (1 week): trolling
Hey, I just got back from the future (don't question this, it's true). As I was walking around I realized there was nothing left. Even though I could barely see through the smouldering haze, coughing and choking trying to breath this smoke, I could see the world had ended. Scrambling around for how this could have happened, under some rubble I found this picture. I just couldn't believe it. How could this have happened? As I looked for more evidence, I noticed another picture half burned on the ground. It was a forum meme taken from what looked like a post here on era. As weird as I thought it was that somebody would print a meme; as I inspected the paper, it all suddenly made sense. It appeared to be the last post on the thread. Could have this been the moment before it all ended? In a panic, I looked around trying to get the bigger picture of where I was. It was my home. What was left of it anyways. It was me, I must have printed out that post as some kind of future gotcha. I never got the chance to use it. Realizing what had happened, I ran back to my time machine and got back to the present day I left. I had to warn everyone. Don't vote for Bloomberg! He knows what he's doing!

I have spent 12, and i say your wrong. Also acting like him going on Rogan's show and saying to his(rogans) viewers that he has his endorsement is just smart strategy. He doesnt have to believe in everything joe rogan believes to gain votes. Indeed, he made his leftist progressive case to Rogan and Rogan hiimself endorsed Sanders. Sanders didnt give a single inch on anything, he had rogan come to his point of view. That's a whole lot better than pretending to be a epublican to gain votes like Biden. or actually being a republican like Bloomberg. I also fully disagree with you on Cenk. he was a republican for a long time and indeed, as he would tell you, was a pretty terrible dude. But people change and evolve and there's no bigger example than him who fights for leftist causes and social justice and economic advocacy every day.

Depends. If it's Biden or Mayor Pete, I am honestly undecided. If it's Bernie, which seems likely, I will 100% vote Trump. Although Bernie I think has a decent shot in the general. Makes it two energized bases against each other and it will inevitably become somewhat a battle between capitalism vs socialism. Bloomberg would be a disaster for Democrats in my opinion, although his money has certainly improved his polling numbers among Democrats which is astonishing. speaking of Virginia I see a few Democrats went against Northam and joined Republicans and voted to shelf the assault weapons ban for a year. Including two Dems from Northern Virginia I believe.
