the purpose of analogy is comparison, waggletard. you are claiming that mocking nintendo's irrelevant new direction directly correlates to the sort of thinking that deprived hundreds of thousands of californians of basic respect and dignity. this is why ninthings don't get laid!

I'm comparing the way you act to that group of people who are set on making clarifications about the definition of message. Since you're known for being a troll, mostly in video games, I just find it funny you take offense at a bunch of homophobe's being a stiff ass about who's allowed to be declared married when you troll all the time about little definitions of shit.

I honestly expected a standard Drinky classic "HOMOS AM CRY :catlogo :catlogo :catlogo" response. It's just funny that you actually take this seriously and act like you don't understand intolerance, of all people.  :lol

My wife was in tears last night because a bunch of our friends were voted second class citizens last night by millions of people.  Way to take videogames too seriously.

It wasn't a gay marriage-videogames analogy, it was an intolerance analogy. Drinky's known for trolling everything and being intolerant. I just found it ironic HIM of all people suddenly is clueless as to how the group of idiots in California who care far too much about something that doesn't concern them is governed, just because of how they define something. He spends all his time trolling something that doesn't concern him, its not a different sentiment than people in California "trolling" with anti-gay marriage stuff and voting against it when it doesn't concern them. So I'm not sure how he doesn't understand how people have that sentiment, when he does all the time, although much less relevant.

what the holy

every thread looks like a personal golgotha to the nintendo devout

You brought up a Nintendo analogy and then your stated point was the text I bolded.  What's difficult to understand here?  You think trolling Nintendo is akin to taking away the rights of gays.  You're the one that made the analogy and clarified your point.

Okay so take out Nintendo and put whatever else Drinky trolls. I don't keep up with his thousands of posts lately but I'm sure theres another here in the off topic forum, I just went with what he's most notorious for. What the subject is, isn't the point, the point was I thought it was funny Drinky was on a crusade against intolerance - when the way he posts is one of the most intolerant people I've seen around these parts. Make more sense?

Maybe he should put up a "for serious" tag on his real posts.

These two things are not analogous. Being "intolerant" on the Internet doesn't end with people being denied their legal rights. Being intolerant of gays at the ballot box in California does.

Okay, pop quiz time!  You will be presented with several pairs of behaviors.  In each pair, one is a genuine instance of societal oppression that marginalizes and oppresses an entire cultural group.  The other will be an example of someone playing the dozens, possibly in a somewhat assholeish way but well within the boundaries of netiquette.


A) Making derogatory comments about the romantic lives of "Ninthings".

OR

B) Using the legal apparatus of a state to restrict marriage rights and privileges only to heterosexuals.



A) Ridiculing the idea of a "fursona" or "fursonality"

OR

B) Banning Jews from owning property outside of certain areas and mandating that they wear a yellow star in public.



A) Speculating about the home life of a Star Wars fan in an ungenerous manner

OR

B) Maintaining both written laws and social mores which prevent women from becoming financially independent.



A) Using dismissive terms such as "lolbertarian" and "Randroid" rather than the preferred "classic liberal" or "Objectivist"

OR

B) Supporting an unofficial shadow justice system whereby black men are castrated and lynched for talking to white women without the proper deference.

Drinky, are you going to claim you're not a hypocrite?



inasmuch as you're capable of assessing it, yup. there's this hilarious little thing called "context"

And you depend on the context of the time.

But what is the context of your irrational hatred towards people who like Nintendo? It's just irrational. Does intolerance and hatred get a coolie pass in certain cases? Your attitude is completely sensitive to time.

I just don't find any of what you say all that serious, because you're a hypocrite so often. You switch opinions to suit yourself or to suit the mood of the time. If I run across you a hundred years in the past, I expect to find a gay hating, red blooded American, for its personally acceptable and well thought of at that time.  

I don't believe you can just be a jackass all the time, then expected to be seen as tolerant due to some politics.

I apologize Drinky, I didn't know this gay stuff affected you so deeply. Ahem ... no pun intended.

Next time I'll pay more attention to real world Drinky vs. fake internet troller Drinky, even though he's probably compiled about 95% of his posts on the latter. Nerd? I'll stop my argument, because you only got a dozen or so posts until you hit the 20K market of coolness. Wouldn't wanna waste it on a gay thread arguing with a nerd right.  ;)

As for gay marriage, as I said earlier ... I just wish people only concerned themselves with what concerns them and let gay people do whatever they want What someone else does shouldn't really be up for vote, but thats just me.

As simply as I can say this:

Making fun of someone for their tastes in pop culture is not "intolerance" the way legislating different rights and privileges among different cultural groups is "intolerance".

They are completely different acts with totally different social costs and implications.

the purpose of analogy is comparison, waggletard. you are claiming that mocking nintendo's irrelevant new direction directly correlates to the sort of thinking that deprived hundreds of thousands of californians of basic respect and dignity. this is why ninthings don't get laid!

I'm comparing the way you act to that group of people who are set on making clarifications about the definition of message. Since you're known for being a troll, mostly in video games, I just find it funny you take offense at a bunch of homophobe's being a stiff ass about who's allowed to be declared married when you troll all the time about little definitions of shit.

I honestly expected a standard Drinky classic "HOMOS AM CRY :catlogo :catlogo :catlogo" response. It's just funny that you actually take this seriously and act like you don't understand intolerance, of all people.  :lol

My wife was in tears last night because a bunch of our friends were voted second class citizens last night by millions of people.  Way to take videogames too seriously.

It wasn't a gay marriage-videogames analogy, it was an intolerance analogy. Drinky's known for trolling everything and being intolerant. I just found it ironic HIM of all people suddenly is clueless as to how the group of idiots in California who care far too much about something that doesn't concern them is governed, just because of how they define something. He spends all his time trolling something that doesn't concern him, its not a different sentiment than people in California "trolling" with anti-gay marriage stuff and voting against it when it doesn't concern them. So I'm not sure how he doesn't understand how people have that sentiment, when he does all the time, although much less relevant.
What in god's fucking green earth are you babbling on about?  Are you seriously equating forum trolling with wide spread cultural and religious intolerance that has led to people actually being beaten to death?  Yes, all the California gays just got "trolled," you fucking distinguished mentally-challenged fellow.

I disagree with people in their tastes for pop culture, but I don't make fun of them or spend as much energy and time into doing it as Drinky does.  What people like and dislike, their TASTES can be as much born into them as anything. I obviously state my disagreement, but I don't act like a douchebag about it. This is a part of tolerance. You can not dismiss it.

Drinky, what is your feeling of how to face furries? You're pretty openly disgusted by it. Does your tolerance extend to them?

I disagree with people in their tastes for pop culture, but I don't make fun of them or spend as much energy and time into doing it as Drinky does.  What people like and dislike, their TASTES can be as much born into them as anything. I obviously state my disagreement, but I don't act like a douchebag about it. This is a part of tolerance. You can not dismiss it.

Saying jerk-y in discussions on the internet != using the law, backed by the implicit threat of violence, to deny privileges and rights to a group of people.

That's without even getting into the difference between the GLBT community and the Nintendo fan community in terms of historical oppression and community identity, which I hope would be staggeringly obvious to anyone with more brain cells left than Terri Schiavo.


PS Drinky's said that he's got no real problem with furries but finds them too hilariously hypersensitive not to needle.  It's not like he's crashing furry cons or I dunno, sponsoring a ballot making it a felony to fuck in a Phillie Phanatic costume.

Context, etiolate, context.  Drinky is a grade A asshole, we understand, but at the end of the day it doesn't matter because he is talking about videogames.  Please don't conflate heavy handed console trolling with real bias.



Maybe so, but the context of the poster just made it seem odd too. Drinky's a well known master troll of intolerance, so I just found it kinda funny. Maybe the issues matter on how he reacts, but he's well known for that, so it seems out of character. It would be like if some other well known ex OA/GAF guys came here and started doing stuff. Like if REIROM came over and posted proof that he has a doctorate, or olimario became an women's internet privacy advocate.  :o

I'm going down the road of what that thinking really says. Ages ago, homosexuality wasn't seen as a natural thing at all.  It was a sexual perversion, a character flaw, a choice of indulgence perhaps.  Applying this separation of what its okay to treat poorly, then I'd assume you would all be ready to bust in some homo's skull a century or so ago. My point is that Drinky's behavior or anyone following such thinking shows a penchant for following a current idealogical thought flow more than that he is tolerant in any true, solid way.

Being nice to things or people you like isn't a pillar of tolerance.

I've seen you trash on many things, including furries(obiously why I brought it up). I don't buy the "its just videogames" approach, because I understand that bigotry and intolerance is a form of thinking more than anything else.

let's use the assignment operator rather than the equivalence one

if i troll a ninthing in the 21st century, a homo in the 20th DIES

or vice versa

this gets us closer to godwin much faster, recursively will appreciate this small but significant syntactical fix and its effect on overall local process efficiency

Yes, because telling someone you disapprove of them is tantamount to 100 year old murders, and Drinky's intolerance can be born into him just as much as Nintendo fandom or teh gay.


Man, putting together these obviously specious arguments is easy.  Is it intolerant if I mock someone for doing it full time?

Now let me get this straight, you honestly think the delta (given 100 years) between murder and trolling videogame fans on the internet is literally zero?

It's the thought process behind it, which is only buffered by current mores, which is the deal here.  

To me, "it's okay because it's.." is dangerous thinking.

Doesn't thinking "it's okay because it's. . ." is dangerous dismiss the majority of valid logical reasons for anything?  You're saying there's never a good reason for blank, where blank could be anything.

We're talking about applying visceral hatred to things and the ethics of tolerance. I am applying it to that. There's good reasons for things. I don't find good reasons for hatred.

So basically, it relies on CONTEXT, as mentioned earlier in this thread?  Your line of thinking only applies in context to "the ethics of tolerance," whereas the behavior of Prole has to do with frivolity vs actually relevant issues?

etiolate's stipulating an unrealistically binary concept of "tolerance" here.

Either you are Truly Tolerant or you are not.  If you are, then you are at peace with the world and never say or do anything that could ever cause anyone any sort of discomfort.

If you are not, then you are at the whim of society and its mores.  I'm not sure how those mores change, because the Intolerant would never be activists about it and the Truly Tolerant couldn't be selective about their Tolerance.

I'm not sure how this model explains the uneven and fitful expansion of rights throughout modern history.  Maybe there's something we're missing, like dark matter.
