GamingThread Polygon: CDPR responds to sexualized trans advertisement in CyberPunk 2077 (Read Staff Post Before Posting)
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissing Concerns About Transphobia and Misrepresenting Other Users; Prior Severe Infraction Related to Transphobia
The fact that developers can’t explore themes like this without being immediately attacked is fucking sad, imo. It’s shameful. Especially a developer like CDPR that explores themes other developers don’t even dare to explore. It’s all about grey zones and letting you decide for yourself: what’s good, what’s wrong (if that even exists). What does everyone expect? A super safe, focus tested game? No cursing, nudity, violence, exploration of LGBT+ themes? Just a bland, PG13 game? Extreme violence? Let’s make a thread about how developers / artists should tone back the violence. They must be condoning this behaviour. Cursing? Let’s make a thread about it. How dare this - obviously written as an evil, villainous character - use curse words that they would probably fucking use IRL?! How do they fucking DARE?! Exploration of LGBT+ themes? Let’s immediately attack them, they must be homophobic / transphobic as fuck. Does anyone realize that it’s disrespectful to the people working there that you are all attacking them without giving them the benefit of the doubt? That there are LGBT+ people working there that are now immediately cornered by a mob as if they’re working at a shitty, disrespectful place? I think this trend of immediately ASSUMING the absolute worst is EXTREMELY toxic, and that’s what we want to avoid in the first place, right? Stop jumping the gun.
