EtcetEraThread Why do some cisgender people hate the term cisgender?
Reason User banned (Permanent): Concern trolling, prior bans for inflammatory false equivalence around representation and xenophobia
I disagree. If someone doesn't want me to call them something, be it gendered, ethnicity based, or some sort of identifier than I will respect those wishes. To do otherwise is just unneccesarily hostile unless its literally a conversation about gendered/non-gendered indentites


EtcetEraThread Guardian: Majority of Europeans fear Biden unable to fix 'broken' US
Reason User Warned: Whataboutism
I wonder how many European countries who think America is unfixable have their own far right parties gaining in popularity? Let’s dispel the notion that Europe is some idealized utopia in contrast


EtcetEraThread Mike Henry will no longer play Cleveland Brown (Family Guy, Cleveland Show)
Reason User banned (1 month): Inflammatory false equivalence around representation
If that’s what he wants to do because he’s sees something good from it then go ahead. I firmly disagree with the notion that only white VA can play white characters and only black VA can play black characters. Samurai jack was played by a black guy, and no one noticed because that’s what a voice actor does. They are paid to act as all kinds of people. And there isn’t some “voice” that applies to a specific ethnicity unless they are really playing it up in which case you call that out as a racist caricature


EtcetEraThread Minneapolis protests over murder of George Floyd. Police response more severe than when white supremacists stormed capitol. (See Threadmarks to help)
Reason User banned (1 week): hostility, inflammatory accusation against other members
You are classless. If any deaths come from this Im sure you'll support that too.


EtcetEraThread Do you find ethnic sections of the grocery store problematic?
Reason User banned (3 Days): Hostility towards another user.
Do you go into every thread on subjects like this just to create straw men arguments to get mad about? Almost no one has dropped any of the arguments that you just brought up, it’s almost like you are trying to force it into existence in this thread. More on topic, the only thing I would find problematic would be the the term ethnic since it can have some weird connotations. International is a better word. Most places wouldn’t stock harder to find items if they were just lumped with everything else since most mom and pop grocery stores pretty much serve generic stuff
