My wife has been pointing out all the new little hairs I have filling out my crown. My hairline in the front hasn't come back at all (I have a single hair still at my original hairline... I feel so bad for it by itself...) But I'm okay as long as what I have left fills out.

And all it took was for me to replace all the testosterone in my body with estrogen....

As someone who's played Runescape since 2007, I was learning more things playing Runescape than I realized. You wouldn't think that but doing stuff like Smithing, Fishing, Woodcutting, Farming and so on teaches you way more than you'd think. Shoutout to Runescape one time.

Way to take everything out of context, but nothing is new.

People wanted to post in support of the staff post, but literally said they were afraid to get dogpiled. So I said it's cool, if you go in there in good faith to defend us, and you don't attack people, you're good

But nah gotta twist it all out of proportion like always.

Anyway, all of this is very funny because I never even had anything to do with any of this. But none of you care, you just want your pound of flesh. Well congrats, you got it.

I'm done with this shitshow. Enjoy your new Sales site.

I'll agree with statements in the thread that makeup is fraught and that it's often moved into black and white territory when it shouldn't be, but we also know how different pieces of looks can get weaponized to sexualize characters, which is kinda the whole thing we're doing in this thread.

Quote from: Siresly
I just find the concept of depictions of real people in a video game weird.

It must be bizarre for the computer people in these games to see that, but they don't seem to care. I guess the idea is that they'd look at that like we look at CG or animated depictions of people. But as a real person, it's weird to play a game presenting a CG world, with real people in it. Like...how does that make sense? How do you explain it? How do the characters in this world know what real people look like? Where did they get these photos from? Is Yakuza a parallel dimension to ours? You can travel between them? Who has this technology? Why are they using it to put photos of real porn stars on a wall in a video game?

They should put some kind of filter on those photos to make them look like they belong in a CG world.
Otherwise my brain just starts dipping down that rabbit hole.

Quote from: ShadowKingpin
I did this in 2011 after nearly 6 years of being treated so poorly at Kroger (I stayed because of the benefits). That environment was all about management bullying staff and in some cases doing it in-front of customers. So, one day I snapped, got on the intercom and said (I shit-you not), "I'm a wild turkey!" and proceeded to make a ton of gobbling noises. I walked out and flipped off my Supervisor while walking past them, as she was the one trying to mess with me in-front of customers. The reason I did the turkey was because I was known as the guy who did all of the intercom announcements for the Meat & Seafood Dept., and my turkey gobbles were a common thing around Thanksgiving every year. Looking back at it, I am still proud that I let that abusive environment.

When I -directly- asked Nepenthe, why they hadn't corrected any of the initial statements, and basically doubled down on victim blaming, it was again, dismissed, with a "Sue me" comment.

Of course, because you were presenting it in a way that she didn't even mean lol, she doesn't think it was victim blaming and she doesn't owe you agreement. She admitted she had a different understanding of the article, if you want more than that that's your own problem. Her being an admin just means she does admin stuff, I don't know why you keep bringing that up like she has some special status, it's an internet forum lol she should be able to post like the rest of us, it doesn't mean she will always be right or people will always agree, you're taking this waaaay too far. If you care so much about how progressive this forum is then I'm sure you're familiar with Nepenthe being a big part of that for literal years so it's just weird people are so quick to throw her under the bus is all.

Some class privilege in this thread. When you grow up struggling sometimes the only thing you have is your reputation. That is why you should never insult someone unless you are ready to throw hands.

Lady is out here getting shit pay for a tough job to have someone come out and call her a bitch? Nah.

The american justice system is literally built on the idea that we should hurt people who hurt people, to show that hurting people is wrong. Don't act all surprised when you get hurt saying hurtful shit. (Note: I believe our "justice" system is busted and we should abolish the police and prison. That said, I am not going to act surprised or try to take the moral high ground when obvious shit happens. This shit is engrained in our culture.)

I wonder if it might help to raise these issues to influential elected officials like Ocasio-Cortez. She has been actively involved with gamers before, and cares for the LGBTQ community and issues. If more awareness could be raised there, I think it may help raise awareness abroad. Failing real change, provided the senate and presidency flips, they might be willing to place sanctions on Poland until they relent.

I'm actually a pagan who follows the Greek pantheon! And I LOVE all of the POC representation in the game, and the way their personalities are written. And you can still tell the writers did tons of research.

If you're interested, the webcomic "Lore Olympus" does some really interesting stuff with the Greek gods as well. However TW: Rape & Abuse, despite that its still very heartwarming and funny.

I have zero plans to stop reporting shitty posts as I see them and I fully expect action to be taken in some form.

I don't really care if the posters posting that shit are long time forum users or not.

I only very rarely go over to the gaming side and this is 100% why, but also the fact that they refuse to moderate gaming side like at all (unless it's console warring which we all know is the most important issue of all time) because they don't want to alienate the bigoted users is just... ugh.

Quote from: Delphine
Because right now, and I'm aware this isn't something a lot of people want to hear, but our staff team is wearing thin. Most of us are exhausted, mentally, emotionally, simply because this job, in essence just is. We are often confronted to the worse this forum has to offer, on a daily basis, and it takes a toll on us all sooner or later. I remember someone in a post mentioning the fact that we have to take the higher ground and be willing to take any kind of criticism at all times, and that's generally the mindset I'm coming from indeed. However, that also generally leaves me drained, with poor mental-health, and needing regular breaks from moderating (or from even interacting with the forum as a whole) just to recenter myself and feel good enough again. This is, in big part, the reason of our staff turn-over. People get burned out doing this, and end up leaving because they couldn't handle it anymore. This is how we lost many of our minority mods as well (because the mental and emotional toll on us is very often THAT much bigger than for the rest of the team), who often are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to replace. I myself have already thought about quitting the staff team half a dozen times in less than a year already. The apparently common sentiment that mods are easily recruited, and that they easily agree to become staff, and dedicate their time and energy to this forum, is sadly far from our actual reality, and the reason why it makes any single departure that much harder to handle.

You know how everyone likes to laugh (or be disgusted) at Xenoblade 2 character design?  Hope you didn't watch the superbowl half time show, this could almost be DLC for the game.  Everything has to keep getting racier and racier I guess (don't forget the twerk off).   At least she has human proportions I suppose, unlike Xenoblade 2.

I think it certainly doesn't help the situation imo when one of the most watched television shows does something like that.  I'm sure people look at that and use it as a bar in some way as what's acceptable.  But it's not just the superbowl, you see that kind of in a lot of prime time media, especially anything to do with modern concerts.

In that time I had to try to become an expert on criminal cases with no clear conclusions, on controversies in every industry, on cultural expectations across different continents, on major historical events I'd not heard of previously, on personalities I didn't follow, and on geopolitical conflicts nobody has ever solved. I would stay up late reading about topics that I knew were in the news, asking for feedback from people more familiar with the issue, and convening with the rest of the staff who were all doing the same to try to understand as much about an issue before we passed judgement. As much as people want to believe it is, this is not easy to do. This is very stressful, very draining, and you do it knowing that people will not be happy with you no matter what. You're criticized for not being fast enough, or people misrepresent the actions you took and why, and you will always be the bad guy no matter what.

People have this image of free-wheeling or rogue moderators who just moderate in accordance of their opinions. But I had to get so far in to complex situations and process so much information and perspective that I don't even have my own opinion on some things anymore.

Can we get a staff post in here so we know the limits of what we can say?  Not being facetious, either.

We don't have to be ok with harassment but we have to understand we don't have control of what people do when this goes public and it's not our fault when other parties have forced out hand to now go public. We can't stop people harassing Jennifer about this, despite explicit warnings. If people want to, they'll find ways. That's the issue of social media and the disinterpretation phenomena where good faith discussions are replaced by anger, bad faith disinterpretation, boxing people into anti- and pro- labels, and harassment.

I know nothing about the person in question, but this is such a psychotic way of looking at things and the kind of mindset that leads to more Alec Holowkas.  It also handwaves harassment for "worthy" targets, but that's not something new for these kinds of people.  That kind of hypocrisy has been on display for years.

There's not really anything we can "do" about this but I just wanted to say it's really jarring to suddenly see "based" popping up as slang again on Era. It's a word that was so strongly tied to harassment mobs and the early groups that became the alt-right that it feels like a word that wouldn't see a resurgence here.



eta: yes, I know it was appropriated from someone who was trying to reclaim it and we can make arguments about reclamation now, but... it really just feels less like reclamation and more like a lot of people who weren't much impacted forgot.

The worst thing I could find is that she accused some random white dude of running over people with his car at a BLM protest. Later it turned out it was some black dude that did and it got dropped from the news cycles real quick.

I mean, I'm going down this fucking twitter rabbit hole trying to find an actual thing this chick did that you can have an actual opinion on, but its all 'they are an abuser' as a factual statement, but right now I'm at a thread where people say they feel abused if they unsubscribe from an email and get a follow up asking why, and I'm just fucking :mindblown
