"Sensitivity readers."

It's a brave new world out there.  Time to make my name in it.
Sounds like the perfect gig for a reseterian. Gleefully yet joylessly pointing out all of the “red-flags” in vidya and then being promptly ignored and forever outraged since at the end of the day, we are all dirtbags and like our video games a little bit rotten.

Where do Kyuuji and Crossing Eden get off now defending whoever the fuck they are talking about.  This is like that streamer who jumped off a bridge and Era's prominent members had to say, "I never said he should kill himself.  Well I did, but I didn't mean it.  It's everyone else who meant it that are wrong."

Etika's suicide hit a raw nerve for me, I really enjoyed his enthusiasm and he didn't deserve what was slung his way, at all.  I considered using the RedMerc account to name and call out the fuckers, but decided it would have fallen on completely deaf ears there even if the post wasn't wiped clean from the website.

Quote
Heidi Heilig, an author who has participated in many online skirmishes and provided a positive blurb for Jackson’s book, hastily revised her Goodreads review of A Place for Wolves. She suggested the book’s content may have changed since she read an early draft, apologized “to those I’ve hurt by my blurb,” and promised to “work harder.”

Quote from: Aske, post: 52183865, member: 3694
Something I find incredibly frustrating is that it seems people have to ignore the issue if they don't totally agree that CDPR is 100% transphobic. It's become very black and white: you either support Trans Era and view the game and the company as every bit as bad as JKR, or you keep your head down and your mouth shut and only talk about the game in the most shallow terms, because bringing up its issues and trying to unpack them from a less certain position will get you banned for "dismissing concerns about transphobia".

[USER=60521]Arithmetician[/USER] is a perfect example. They didn't seem to be dismissing any concerns, they seemed to be trying to understand those concerns, and even when they proved they weren't entering the discussion in bad faith, they merely had their ban reduced. The message is "keep it light and shut your mouth, or denounce the game".

Trans Era is not responsible for educating people, but I personally feel there needs to be room for discussion, so that people who aren't totally convinced by the OP of this thread can unpack and break down these issues together without fear of getting banned. That's how people's minds get changed, as we've seen in this thread already. This thread might not be the best place for it, since it's about supporting folks who are hurt by the game, and the OT probably isn't a good place for it either, because those who just want to keep it light will drown out discourse about this topic. But I don't think the current policy is the best way to deal with this situation, or advocate for trans people, or understand how different people relate to the game and CDPR.

I wholeheartedly believe that there are people who appear to be ignoring the concerns of Trans Era and are excited to play the game, who still believe trans men are men and trans women are women, but who can't express their feelings about the problematic aspects of the game and dissect each other's interpretations because they know they'll get banned if they say, for example, that they don't think gender-bending, sexually provocative, sleazy, objectifying imagery is the same thing as denial of personhood or hate, and that they aren't ready to denounce CDPR as transphobic yet.

It would be awesome if a mod could weigh in on this and explain the way in which these debates could occur, or if they're not welcome on Era at all, as appears to be the case.

Bets on ban length?

The reason why John stopped posting here is different though, and without bringing back that discussion - of his own doing.

People completely ignoring everything aren't "keeping their heads down", they just don't want to acknowledge it. There's been enough talk about CDPR's transphobia, anyone ignoring it is intentionally dodging it. There has been just about ZERO change in discussion from before and after the day ban in most threads, not even a single "thank you" or "wait what's going on?". I thought there would be at least some people getting pissy about it or a small uproar about "mods are being forum nazis", but there's been just about nothing.

The only thing I can get from that is ignoring them bothers them sssssssssooooooo much that they would rather have members lash out at them and the mods instead of continue to ignore them. TransERA is acting like that clingy, whiny boyfriend/girlfriend that can't take the hint that it's over  :lol

Upset because they expected a forum uprising over a whole 24 hour ban on Cyberpunk discussion and didn't get anything  :lol

It's almost like the people wanting to talk about the game were probably just doing so in a Discord chat for the day.

Is like Trans Era are a bunch of “transtrenders” that only want attention and be recognized as special people rather than equals with others.

For the sake of discussion for this thread assume the election fraud has been proven real and most of the perpetrators have been arrested, tried and hung or now in Gitmo.

Once Trump has proven the election fraud happened and is proclaimed President for a second term, what steps should he take to help heal a divided nation?

What is Trumps next steps as riots wrack Democrat cities?

Good god.  That's all they have and he just nullified it.  "They are literally killing me/want me dead," and "they are denying my rights as a human," are the two most common phrases in CDPR threads. 

Well aside from, "holy shit that game looks awesome."

Later suckha.  Meep Meep.

Agreed with Sana Saeed on liberal enlightenment.

Of course you do.

Liberal secularism is - of course - the absolute worst method of permitting religious tolerance within a governed society, and separating the temporal executive and legislative from the spiritual.

Just look at all those communist regimes that were so accommodating of religion.
Or all those theocracies that allowed all those alternative faiths.
Go be a practicing christian, jew, buddhist or hindu under sharia law and enjoy your religious tolerance.

The only part of this that I’m actually angry about is that someone who uses a PS4 was too fucking dumb to understand the PS5 is also a PS4 but better.

“I didn’t like the PS5.” What does that even mean?

Quote from: CarthOhNoes
I mean I am not saying that he should be lynched or anything. I totally see where people are coming from with the whole "it was his so he is free to do what he likes". My real issue with this is that he's a wealthy man bragging about making money on something which a lot of people really want and can't get, and which he got for free because of his status.

It was the bragging about it that got me, more than the actual act. So what if he sold it, but just do it quietly. The whole "look how cool I am for making this profit which I might just chuck into the Thames from the window of my ferrari" thing is what's irritating about this.

I'd also like to add that I was one of the lucky ones who managed to get a PS5, and am hugely greatful, so this isn't some jealousy thing. I just think boasting about flogging it when plenty of people are desperate for one but can't get one due to stock issues, when you got given it for free and are already obscenely wealthy thanks to daddy's money, is a shitty thing to do.

Quote from: CarthOhNoes
He’s still bragging about it. Someone said it was a shorty thing to boast about on Instagram and he just said “it’s called making a buck”. Which I’m sure he needs...

So, basically, rich asshole is a rich asshole. God Instagram “personalities” are annoying. Not a shred of talent in his body and can do whatever he likes.
The thing is, if he wants to sell it on, fine. But why brag about it? Bragging about it is a bad look no matter what the background of how he got it. Continuing to brag about it, as if he needs the money when he’s driving about in daddy’s Ferrari in Chelsea, just makes him look like more and more of a prick. These people seem to have no idea about PR.

Honestly, a rebellious part of me would love to spoil this game for as many people as possible. Spoilers don't seem to have a deleterious effect on sales though, so there wouldn't be much point to it outside of my own sick satisfaction.

I'm probably just being silly.

.  Seriously. This year has made me really burn out of most of the internet and social media. It's just too hostile for me and honestly it doesn't need to be this way.

First earlier this year I ended up leaving a forum for black women because of how transphobic it was. Then, I end up disbanding a discord server that had people from that site because the transphobia had spread there too and they attacked me when I suggested that we shouldnt be that way. Both destroying my "Black woman safe spaces" online, which really sucked as someone in a white majority country.

Then, I ended up putting my tumblr on basically "read only" mode in order to prevent myself from getting mixed up in some unpleasantness, and mass unfollowed alot of people.

Then, just yesterday (after like, years of undergoing random assholes and etc) I ended up deleting my 4 year old reddit account because I got into a dumbass argument with someone over racism in a sub that I thought was better than most of reddit.

At this point, I only have resetera (which seems to be more moderated and therefore better l), a Facebook account that I only keep up for work, and read only tumblr and Twitter accounts. I don't even reblog anything from them. I just follow cool people, and on twitter I follow my favourite authors.

The very early online multiplayer is also something that is unrecognizable today when you look at cesspools like LoL.

Says it all, really. They just want to complain.

So last night I had one of the most unpleasant experiences as an Uber driver. For reference, I've had over 7k trips over the course of several years and I've never ever had to call the cops to get someone out of my car before. But tonight I had to make that decision unfortunately. So to back it up to the beginning, this young black woman in her early 20s gets into my car here in Atlanta about 3:30 in the morning. Pretty much my last rider on Saturday night time. We proceed to get started and I noticed that her mask was down around her chin to which I told her to pull it up. I paid my attention back on the road for a bit and then did a visual check about 20 seconds later to make sure that she was following my directions. She had not and I told her again to please pull your mask up! She then pulled it up and then complained on the phone about how "all these drivers are doing the most" or some such bullshit to which I had to respond that 2K people died yesterday and I did not want to be one of those tomorrow.

She then proceeded to tell her friend over the phone that I was such a taco to which of course I asked her to confirm what my ears just heard to which she then lied about it and things definitely started escalating from there. We started getting into a back and forth about COVID-19 then her friend on the phone told her to calm down but in the process of doing that also decided to hurl the f slur at me "he is definitely such a taco" to which I abruptly proceeded to step on the brakes on the freeway and pulled over to the shoulder and told her to get the fuck out of my car. She said "I'm a black female and it's late at night and I have a dead phone, I'm not getting out of your car!" to which I then said "No, I ended the ride, get the hell out of my car" She then said, "you're about to lose your job for putting me out on the freeway" So I then took the nearest exit which was near Atlantic Station which is a fairly upscale and quiet part of town and told her to get out near this fire station. She then decided to yell at me several more slurs in quick succession and told me I nearly went into the wall and could've hurt her (I did not, I had complete control of the vehicle from start to finish of the session, I'm not an idiot) I told her to get out, she refused. I then said "I'm gonna have to call the cops" She then said "go ahead and do it, I'm not leaving, you're about to lose your job" and so I had no choice at that point. I called APD and told them the situation and then got out of my car with my coat and mask and just sat outside and waited for the police to come. In the interim, I offered to have her phone charged so that she could catch another Uber and I could go home so long as she calmed down and apologized. She then proceeded to scream at me that I was a "taco ass ugly nicca" among several other things that I don't really quite remember now that I've woken up. (I really wish I had recorded this y'all, she was bonkers) So an offering of peace and a deescalation was out of the picture at this point. I then sat down and waited as she continued to scream at me slurs from my car and how I was endangering her this and that. A woman cop showed up about 35 or so minutes after I called the police, I told her what was going on - funny note here: as I was telling her what happened, it dawned on her that THE WOMAN WAS STILL IN MY CAR and she was like wait, she's still there? Hold on lemme solve this real quick. She then walked over to the car and said "baby girl, you gotta get out of here, this is this man's car and he told you to get out" She thankfully promptly did so and was talking to the cop briefly and I decided at this point that I needed to go home and so I did.

So yeah, fun night here in Atlanta hah.

I don't think you handled this well at all but I'm glad you're both okay, OP.

I don't want to get dogpiled. I just feel like there's unnecessary escalation that led to the avoidable, dangerous situations of being pulled over on the interstate and interacting with the cops. But like I said, I'm glad it ended safely.

Well, at least that user was banned... but will RE remember this next time someone calls the cops on a black person?

OP I'm glad you're ok. But hopefully you now realized how important a camera is on your job. Make sure you have one on the dashboard facing the passengers. You simply could have told her "you know the camera is recording right? Tomorrow your face is gonna be all over social media and you might have trouble in employment opportunities"

Openly talking about doxxing on a site that swears it's either not a thing or an alt-right tactic, depending on the narrative they need to push.

It's weird a 20 year old would say it. I'm a decade older and it was considered lame when I was a teen.

"dude in a warehouse held a copy of the game in his hands for a bit" doesn't seem like news

The thread has 12 pages and 59000 views, but yeah, not news.  :lol

Why can't they at least be honest with the threadlocks

User banned (1 month): Inflammatory commentary, history of similar behavior

Console wars by and large are for poor people.

People with good jobs just play great games where ever they play best.

You are correct, healthy competition benefits everyone, especially consumers.
