Reason User banned (2 weeks): Inflammatory false equivalence, dismissing concerns around bigotry
I've never watched RLM or know who they are, but after kinda browsing over this thread...All internet communities are largely insular and self aggrandizing, be it some shitty YouTube show or even places like ERA.Not actively saying "Fuck Right Wingers!" at the beginning of every sentence does not make someone just as bad. It is this type of sentiment that encourages your prior complaint. No one wants to sit around having someone constantly "check their privilege" every time they make a joke about how an actress is ugly or a cynical joke. But more importantly, some of the complaints in the OP just seem to be angry that RLM trash talked opportunistic corporations, not seeing the benefit of marching for unspecific reasons instead of specific grievances, and insulted a celebrity. Demanding that RLM and anyone who watches them be banned on this forum is some pretty weak e-warrior shit. OP spent a bunch of their time cataloging what is ultimately a long list of small grievances when probably doing almost literally anything would have been a more socially beneficial way of spending their time.I don't think it's weird to see the list of complaints in OP and not really giving much of a fuck. There's an inherent unseriousness about the statement "we need to have a critical discussion on a video game forum about a couple of YouTube chuckle fucks".
