Astroturfing the memory of KetKat while having stickied threads in BOTH Gaming and Off-Topic is the epitome of “fuck you got mine.”

OFFICIAL STAFF COMMUNICATION
In recognition of International Transgender Day of Remembrance, we’ve made the decision to lock all threads about Cyberpunk 2077 for today (November 20th) to raise awareness about the concerns related to the publisher and the game. Originally the plan was to close the OT on this date as it was the day after the game was due to release; there will still be an OT closure on the day after release to honor that commitment. However, with marketing for the game now in full swing, this is another way to draw attention to the issue. The threads will be reopened tomorrow.

To learn more about this issue please see this summary thread.
Lol, they still had to put the cyberpunk fans on notice even though the game isn't out yet

"Honor that commitment" what? They were going to close the OT the day after release because of Transgender Day of Remembrance. What does closing the OT on December 11th honor? Jesus Christ, mods.

The rage when the thread is reopened in 24 hours and people just go on chatting about the game will sure be something though.

Today Ree is outraged their PS5 wasn’t delivered by Jeff Bezos in a golden limousine

“Step son got his new Xbox with Amazon UK, they used some company I’ve never heard of to deliver it. Turned up in a small poxy ‘work van’ and dropped the box off, it was all very unprofessional from a company like Amazon delivering such a sought after product.

That being said he did receive it at launch”

That number includes all kinds of homicides. Not just hate crimes. So compared to the murder rate in some of these countries, it‘s actually not that many and below average.

Or am I reading this wrong and I am now some hateful bigot?

No, its the same thing they pulled last year too. The numbers just don't support the narrative.
Its just a list of trans people that were murdered, not a list of murders of people for specifically being trans, and it also happens to show that statistically trans people are not actually at any higher risk of being killed (by someone else, anyway) than any other group are, and are often statistically less likely to be murdered.

Yeah, the actual stats are awkward as fuck. Although I think there's a need for a remembrance day, and to keep awareness that there are trans people killed solely for being trans, those numbers probably shouldn't be front and centre given that they're, to put it callously, underwhelming.

Permaban for anyone that goes anywhere near that though, so it won't be mentioned. I'd like to know more because I have no issue believing that trans people are disproportionately murdered, so I'd want to know why those numbers paint the opposite picture.

You're absolutely right, which is why I say this is awkward as fuck to discuss. One death is too many and all that.

It still stands out though. Just as it would if someone told me that AIDS had killed 3400 people since 1985*. That's a lot of dead people, but I'd still be scratching my head because the figure is far off my expectations.


*totally made this up, don't bother wondering if I've actually heard that.

I dunno, once you start going down the "One death is a tragedy, many deaths is a statistic" route you're entering dangerous territory that ultimately costs more lives.

For me things like COVID are different because that's a virus that kills indiscriminately. Much like a hurricane or earthquake.

Quote from: Dmax3901
Some of you may recall I made a thread about the sexualised ads we've seen from this game so far.

I was watching the new trailers today and saw a close-up version of one of the ads I had included in my thread:


SPOILER: PRETTY FUCKING GROSS
spoiler (click to show/hide)

[close]
I know it's not strictly related to the topic at hand, but again I feel it is more evidence that CDPR have completely missed the mark here.

Anything they're attempting to say (which has questionable value to begin with) will be lost on the majority of their #gamer audience, who will see these ads and be like "hahah, that's hot" and stereotypes are enforced and sexists are emboldened.

The exact same thing will happen with the transphobic ads/content we've seen thus far, which has potential to be even more harmful given how vilified trans folks are in the real world (and specifically this industry) already.

:exxy

It's all so PRETTY FUCKING GROSS, but he still took the time to upload lots of images of it!

Murder and manslaughter is 100% preventable.

Sure, but again, when you're demanding a week of memorial under the claim your pet cause is the worthiest and most at risk cause there is, and it turns out that in fact using your own numbers, you're statistically less likely to be the victim of a homicide than almost any other demographic, it might be in bad taste to raise the question as to why you need a week of remembrance for that, but that question is still hanging there.

Murder and manslaughter might be preventable in the case of being criminal acts perpetuated by people and theoretically avoidable, but what percentage of those murders could / would be prevented by giving money to pro trans lobbyists? What legislation do they want that would stop that? Make murder more illegal?

Hey Arithmetican,

Kudos for coming back and re-engaging. I am as happy by that post as I was annoyed by the initial post I replied to. Thanks for taking the time to understand. It really is as "simple" as they made it without any subtext. Which aside from the transphobia issues would be offputting anyway, they really don't give the impression that they have put any real "effort" into expanding the genre or doing anything fresh or original, and just like (as I have said before) Neon, sex and blade arms.

Anyway I'm happy you could understand a little better and felt comfortable enough to return.

I always loved that "We couldn't find a good 'blank' actor so we just hired a white person to be 'blank'".

Maybe the reason those people aren't 'good actors' is because they are never getting a chance.

And of course an abled person playing a disabled person would seem like a better actor in that role because you go "wow I didn't know they were disabled" and are paying zero attention to anything else in that role.

There are lots of other neuro-atypical people, like RJ Mitte, who phenomenally played Walter White Jr. in Breaking Bad (he has cerebral palsy). Tal Anderson is autistic and plays in the series "Atypical" as well. There's lots. With less-visible neuro-atypical actors, you may never actually know! I think I read somewhere once that Sir Anthony Hopkins has Asperger's, and there are more I'm sure!

“THERE IS TONS”

Mentions two.

“AND A LOT WE DONT KNOW”

Anthony Hopkins has aspies?

Also, didn’t RE hated the term Asperger because he was a Nazi or something?

If you were temp banned, or requested a ban, I just want you to know that at least as far as I’m concerned, you are always welcomed here.

Let’s play, ‘What’s more Ridiculous!’

1) The assertion that he is welcomed in that thread after being banned for being there?

Or

2) The suggestion it might have been a requested ban? (Due to his shame on his earlier posts, I guess.)
