Video Game Bored / Re: Nintendo Switch Thread
« Last post by james on Today at 01:51:26 AM »
Who's asking for a new Switch? Honestly. Software and hardware sales seem very strong. Other than enthusiasts who care about things that the majority don't, I don't see people crying out for a new Switch.

Honestly, these new consoles could have waited till 2023 to launch if you want to know my real opinion.

I look at XB3 and it looks perfectly fine to me. Could it be better? Sure, but like Im going to enjoy it perfectly fine on the old Switch hardware.

To me this isn't the 3DS where it looked ugly in it's own space. Vita, iphone, and so on were pushing out visuals and tech beyond what the 3DS seemed to do. Whereas to me the Switch is putting perfectly fine-looking games and there's nothing on the next gen systems that has truly blown me away and won't until 2023.

The most popular game on the planet, a minecraft, runs badly on switch.

Give us Switch 2 so we can use Elytra you cowards

OP, as a fellow teacher I'm glad your taking your role as an educator to heart in regard to the student body of your university. I honestly have heard tales from my sister and her friends how, in  high school, one of their female teachers would take advantage of their younger male students to have sex with them, claiming to the girls later on that she was teaching them the good stuff so when they had sex with girls their own age they would know what to do.

It warms my heart that you helped this person you were with but that your also thinking about the power dynamics and how it could affect them and you later. So thank you so much for mentioning that and being a good ethical person.

Eating the asshole of a student 15 years your junior. So ethical and wholesome  :blessup

I'm a professor, and there is NO FUCKING WAY he should be banging college age kids anywhere within a hundred miles radius of his workplace. Let's forget the ethical issues for a second and just focus on sheer CYA tactics as a teacher, it's a recipe for disaster and destroying your career.  And the way he describes how he supposedly goes about it ethically REEKS of "thou dost protest too much."

You're going to be an adult, ignore them and move on. You can't stop people from being disgusting human beings.
This is part of the reason things are the way they are in the US. Ignoring these things doesn't make them any better. It's not "being an adult" to just ignore fascists and bigots.

Report them to HR. That type of stuff typically isn't allowed in office environments where I've worked in the past. I know nothing will come of it, but make up some shit to get them spooked when they're suddenly called in for "sensitivity training"

The point is you're at work and there is a time and place for everything. Being an adult is about not letting your emotions take control of you.
When is the time and place? Folks won't do it at home with family, they won't do it at work. They don't do it anywhere.
:lol

Aren't these the same people who want to hang Zuckerberg for telling employees not to talk about this at work?

Thomas calls for overturning precedents on contraceptives, LGBTQ rights

Quote
Thomas wrote, “In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.”

The three cases Thomas mentioned are all landmark decisions establishing certain constitutional rights.

In Griswold v. Connecticut, the court ruled in 1965 that married couples have a right to access contraceptive. In 2003, the court said in Lawrence v. Texas that states could not outlaw consensual gay sex. And the court’s 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges established a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

Let me guess:
Seems fine to me.

(Image removed from quote.)

A big thing here is I don't really know if what Thomas means overturning those precedents or if they're just going to look at them and the media isn't helping.

For example, the pro-choice position in America lies on a spectrum but most Americans support heavy restrictions. But when you look at liberal media sites they're full on manipulating the stats to conform to their narrative and nuance goes out the window as they act as political pundits to push their agenda.

Like say, you contrast the data posted above with Pew here. As said, it's only legal/illegal. It's very black and white as most Americans aren't going to say "I want abortion illegal" because that would be depraved. Liberals take advantage of this to push their narrative that Americans fully support abortion when, in reality, we support abortion within means.

https://www.pewresearch.org/religion/fact-sheet/public-opinion-on-abortion/

So when the Justice says this I have no idea what he really means and the media is telling he wants to overturn them. Frankly, I wish someone would interview him so we could get to the bottom of it rather than the game of telephone that happens. Liberals are really bad at that and get triggered at seemingly innocuous points made and think they're going to bring back slavery!!! :lol

I mean yeah, corporation. I'm not gonna claim the other big guys handle it well all the time or even sincerely care but Nintendo doesn't even pretend to. They try to remain neutral and "family friendly" but isn't that the excuse that creates all of these issues in the first place? Their "think of the children" attitude is part of the problem and needs to be called out on. And that's not even getting into the diversity issues where Nintendo far behind everyone else. Not a single PoC main character, to say nothing of LGBTQ.
:rethread

The Japanese company isn’t diverse?

Eh… You will be surprised how xenophobic and conservative Japanese companies can be.

I find it curious people in Canada and Europe are protesting the over turning of Roe v Wade when a state like Mississippi has more liberal abortion laws than Germany as expressed last page.

Quote
Mississippi also has a trigger law in place, but unlike Louisiana, it will require certification from state Attorney General Lynn Fitch before going into effect — one of seven states in this situation.

Under the law, abortion is banned, unless a pregnant person’s life is in danger or the pregnant person is a victim of rape and has reported the incident to law enforcement. Anyone who performs or attempts to perform an abortion will be charged with a felony punishable by a fine of up to $100,000, up to 10 years in prison, or both,

Seems fine to me.

Quote

Strongest support for abortion—within limits: An Associated Press/NORC poll in June found 87% support abortion when the woman’s life is in danger, 84% support exceptions in the case of rape or incest, and 74% support abortion if the child would be born with a life-threatening illness.

When abortion support drops: The further into the pregnancy, with AP/NORC finding 61% believe abortion should be legal during the first trimester, but only 34% in the second trimester and 19% in the third, and an April Wall Street Journal poll finding more Americans approve of 15-week abortion bans than disapprove.

My opinion is pretty mainstream within America. :) Also looking at Europe it's mainstream as well. The Mississippi law allows abortion - within limits. Sounds perfectly fine to me!
