EtcetEraThread Avengers: Endgame Being Re-Released Next Weekend With New Footage
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Hostility, thread derail, and gatekeeping over multiple posts and threads; history of similar infractions
It’s definitely unlikely to happen, but I... don’t understand, really. Aren’t you a MCU fan? Or this is just another "gotcha" from me simply speculating at a China re-release? We don’t know what is the extent of this, and while we don’t know that, the fact that we already have confirmation of at least a new location should be exciting to you, if you follow box office. Or you just don’t want Endgame to pass it (there wouldn’t be nothing wrong about that, btw)? Legit curious if this is about Endgame or me posting things, because I really can’t tell if this is banter or something else.

Shows she's disingenuous. She makes up a story to push a narrative, a false one, for clicks and money. She'd have been fine to say the obvious: that Bowser treats Peach like a commodity, but she goes astray saying Mario is also doing that, when in truth Mario and Peach are good friends. Who wouldn't try to save a good friend? She's kind of fringe, and I'm more of a centrist.

EtcetEraThread Feminist Discussion of Anime and Manga |OT| Not your waifu
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Defending misogyny
Have you read Shield Hero or watched it? It could have been anyone in her position (well like some in the Novel are and they get what they deserve), but have you read what she has done? Getting renamed to Bitch is better than getting killed. After all that humilation she gave everyone and even her own family (who she wanted to kill too) she came away quiet good, because she has the slave crest only that she cannot lie anymore which is great for that shit character. It's also great when you know what else happens to that character and why everything happens, but that would be a big spoiler (not the webnovel that had other plans). The only thing that irks me is that they talked about Raph and Filo having their crests removed, but they don't do that or rather they redid the seal (they already lost them once) because they get "extra exp". Otherwise their slave crests or status is never a thing again in the series.

Reason User Warned: Inappropriate Language.
Decent ? Come one, dude :). Even the weakest mini (western version) equal the pretty good SNES mini. OK, it has the mediocre Alex Kidd, Altered Beast but SNES mini doesn't have Schmup, BTA, Puzzle games, S-RPG... and we are not talking about "decent" Genesis counter parts. We are talking about God tiers Thunder Force 3, King Streets of Rage 2, the excellent Puyo/Robotnik, and Shining Emperor. Asian and Japanese versions are litterally blast processing rivals with 4 players fucking Hakusho, hilarious Rent a hero, Alien soldier(if Gunstar Heroes, Hard Corps weren't enough) and Musha Aleste to rape any resistance.:) No no no, Capcom's mini is decent, Snes quite good like the Genesis Mini but Asian's megadrive minis are excellent. :)

I'm not, but I'm also not saying I made it or complaining about it not being credited. I can bet if someone stole my avatar I wouldn't say a word. I also don't have million of followers... I'm really not following your line of though here, your reasoning is making no sense at all. "That's not how fanart works?" Please elaborate. It's art, she stole the design from someone else that actually came up with it from scratch. She didn't credit the original designer, and then complains when someone else uses it? "if you, for whatever reason, think it's even remotely the same" I never said it was the same, It doesn't need to be the same to still be hypocritical. Both of them are in the wrong here, the only difference is that she's beeing hypocritical when complain about Elon.Read above. You are really grasping at straws right now.

You're acting like their own personal PR. Are you? I get that your website lives and dies from the popularity of the franchise but you're stressing yourself out more by trying to deflect everyone's anger. If you want to defend them so badly, then go get a job at GameFreak. Otherwise, stick to your lane as a FAN WEBSITE. And don't tell me where the outrage is. The lack of National Dex is the straw that broke the camel's back. I don't know about everyone else but I wouldn't say my feelings toward the game was 'positive'.

On the one hand, it's a nice gesture but on the hand it's a white woman giving more spotlight to her fellow white women. Though really that's the problem that I have with the women empowerment movement is that it's currently solely focused on white women and it feels like that women of colours are being excluded because white women are the safer choice. 1. She wasn't being serious with her statement, 2. she has stunt people for insurance purpose, 3. it doesn't take away what she's doing.

Reason User Banned (1 Day): Justifying body-shaming.
This is what happens when we aren’t allowed to critique people’s health and fitness because “fat shaming is wrong”. Don’t get me wrong, You should never ridicule someone for the shape of their body. We just better not start applauding general apathy towards health and trying to make beer guts (which is what dad bod is for a large part) a hot new trend. That’s pretty unsavory.
