EtcetEraThread Singer Ricky Martin (Living La Vida Loca) Accused of Domestic Violence & Incest by Nephew(UP:Nephew withdraws allegation)
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Inflammatory Commentary
people are confusing incest with statutory rape. if two consenting adults who happen to be related want to do things to each other, i don't care. yes it's gross, it's creepy but it shouldn't be illegal and it's definitely not criminal. of course if this started when the nephew was under 16 then that's criminal - the statutory rape part, not the incest part. a quick google search shows that the age of consent in Puerto Rico is 16, so take that in mind.

EtcetEraThread Save the Children: 4 out of 5 children in Gaza say they are living with depression, grief and fear, most considering s*icide, or are s*lf h*rming
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Misrepresenting history, downplaying warcrimes, bothsiding, history of the same
It is a conflict that goes back several thousands of years. Each act of oppression and violence fuels the next generation of fighters, seeing themselves either in the roles of righteous oppressors or righteous victims defending themselves. Both sides point toward their magic books backing up their position. The conflict literally became part of the two sides' respective identities. Hard to unravel. I'll take it with Hannah Arendt here: With the current far-right govt in Israel and a forming coalition between the European, Russian, American, and Jewish far-right with a strong focus on nationalism and reactionary politics, I think we see we see attempts of aiming for the same positions of power they formerly suffered under. Leading to zionist figures like Yoram Hazony, one of the organizers and speakers of the National Conservatism conference and author of "The Virtues of Nationalism), aligning with far-right and antisemitic figures like Trump, Viktor Orban and even touting antisemitic conspiracy theories like the ones about George Soros. Hannah Arendt saw this coming 70 years ago when she analyzed the post ww2 track Israel went on. Eventually becoming an oppressor and embracing the pathological aspects of nationalism, wasn't a solution to the problem, but just another chapter of it. The dehumanization and Us vs. Them mentality Arendt experienced in Nazi Germany was in her eyes a universal recipe for violence along identity lines with interchangeable actors being able to take the roles of oppressor and victim. The violence won't play out in the same way, comparing the treatment of the Palestinians to the Holocaust is completely wrong, because it is not an industrialized effort at extermination, but the underlying mechanisms of vilification and dehumanization along identity lines, and the resulting perception of an existential threat justify the violence in a very similar way. That said, the fact that Israel would suffer great losses of life on a regular basis if it weren't for the Iron Dome can't be brushed away. Israel's need for defense is legit, but the power dynamic is in its favor, which puts the moral obligation to deescalate on their shoulders, in my opinion.

If you think that what Will did was justified, that's cool, you're entitled to that opinion which is what this place is all about. It's just so fucking lame to cast aspersions on anyone who doesn't share your opinion. "Oh you're just sheltered and privileged. You're a white person who doesn get it. You're trolling. You're racist and trying to paint Will as a scary black man. I bet you'd be ok with insulting a disabled person." Like that's just unecessary bullshit.

This sort of post is antisemitism-adjacent. Or at the very least, it plays into the concept of "Israel = Jews". The truth is that regardless of the history that led to its creation, Israel right now is just a country doing what all countries tend to do when nothing prevents them.

EtcetEraThread I can't get over how dumb it is for a "Supergirl" to exist.
Reason User Banned (3 Weeks): Dismissive commentary regarding gendered superhero names, over a series of posts
I'll respond to your previous post later when I have some more time to think about it, that said I wish people focused a bit more on the idea that I wanted to talk about, "concepts that should go beyond gender", a mantle that should represent more of a figure rather than their gender. Superman and Batman these actual titles that are not exclusive to male characters. Like fine, mankind, "men" are not in literal terms gender neutral, but at the very least some concepts that happen to have these words attached to them (like the mantles of these characters) should be treated as something that don't necessarily need the gender differentiation when a woman takes them on. I have a problem with the idea that "supergirl" was invented because you could not have a woman assume the "superman" title rather than with the fact that a woman character was created with superman's powerset (???)

He was found innocent afterwards by the FBI. Profesional investigation are important and social media investigations can literally be deadly to innocent people.

Hamas is still a religious fascist organization. Israel are the ones with the power who could instantly change the situation and instead keep making it worse by building new settlements or constantly bombing Gaza. But that doesn't mean terrorism on the Palestinian side doesn't exist or is always excusable. Suicide attacks against civilians are never ok.

EtcetEraThread Johnny Depp Jury Finds That Amber Heard Defamed Him in Op-Ed
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Continued disruptive behavior in spite of multiple past infractions.
We are lol. I’ve been banned twice simply stating that Johnny depp is a textbook abuser with a history of violent outbursts and jealous, coercive controlling behaviour. I might catch another ban for this but I’m not going to stop saying it. It’s been public knowledge virtually his entire career. He’s always been….kind of a scumbag. I don’t care if amber heard is a piece of shit. She probably is. But I fully believe she and depp were together at the height of his depravity and she was abused by him. I’m not going to acknowledge any replies to this either cause y’all are just vicious as hell and really just mean and behaving like bullies, imo. I’ve tried the dialogue, y’all are scary as hell in here. No thanks.

EtcetEraThread Tesco put security tags on make-up for dark skin - but not lighter tones
Reason User banned (permanent): Dismissing concerns around racism. Account in junior phase.
Let's say that I'm a card game shop. I sell Magic, Pokemon, and YuGiOh booster packs. I notice that a lot of the YuGiOh booster packs are being stolen, so I put anti theft tags on them. That's a pretty logical decision, right?| To me, a similar case could very, very easily be happening here. They notice that the darker tones of makeup are getting stolen at a rate above the usual shrinkage rate, so they put security/anti theft tags on them. They even say so in the article If people want to fight racism, I'm right there with them. But absent evidence to the contrary, the explanation of "All of our makeup is getting stolen a ton, and we're only going to put anti theft tags on the makeup for black people" seems a bit more ridiculous than "We noticed a few makeup SKUs were seeing higher than expected rates of theft, so we secured those SKUs". The latter seems more reasonable, and the more likely explanation here.

Maybe next time don't go to foreign country and assume local laws do not apply to you because you're an American. Fuck Russia but the amount of people in this thread that defend her purely because she's a woman/poc is weird. If she did that in Singapore or Malaysia, she would have gotten more than just jail time or possibly a noose. One cannot plead ignorance when certain countries have very strict drug laws. I wonder if people that defend her so hard in this thread are so sympathetic towards foreigners that break laws in Us and go to jail because they didn't know the local law.
