Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive of Transphobia and the Impact Thereof
Maybe they aren’t experts on ethics that have to constantly clarify their stance on every cutting edge moral dilemma society faces? Kinda Funny folks are well meaning entertainers and that’s all. They can’t be expected to step into every fight, and honestly sometimes they shouldn’t because they could mess up and make people even more mad, due in part because they aren’t educated enough on the issue. The blatant absurd over the top nonsensical sexuality of cyberpunk is messed up but hey that’s what so much of society is all about I guess. But to constantly expect Video game people to talk about it and address is is asking for trouble. Maybe they are busy formulating their thoughts and opinions. Maybe they want to be nuanced and thoughtful. Are they allowed to think things through without the witch hunt?

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Concern trolling in a sensitive topic across multiple posts, prior ban for dismissing concerns around racist stereotypes

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing concerns of racial stereotyping
Barrett is wonderful in the Remake and genuinely has many powerful moments that expand who he is as a character beyond any sort of stereotype. While mods are banning people for 'dismissing representation', I also think they should consider acknowledging that the art of this game, its original spirit and characterization, also has immense value and Square handled it in an exemplary way.
