Why does everyone on the internet have the thinnest skin these days.

Some thread on era "Ridley Scott says Millenials suck because they didn't see The Last Duel" -> tons of posters going "FUCK YOU RIDLEY"



Like...if some old ass movie director saying your generation sucks is enough to get under your skin that you have to write a reply telling an imaginary person who will never read it to fuck off....idk. Just seems incredibly petty. Like who cares....

And this is just a specific situation that is something I've seen going on over and over again for years. People get so heated and ANGRY about every little slight online. It's just ridiculous. Makes everyone online seem crazy. I'd never want to meet any of these people irl.

Everything Ridley Scott says is going to get an x4 Fuck Off multiplier from Era for him taking a swipe at superhero movies a couple weeks ago.

You're either on the right side of history, or you're actively working against us all collectively achieving that history.

Ridley Scott has chosen his side.

JK Rowling is a misandrist, but she's completely right on her trans stance.

It's why they hate her. Logic says she's right and they can't refute her.

Itís because most of these people have lived a very sheltered upper middle class at worst existence growing up. They likely never had to face adversity, were always handed trophies for simply showing up via moms mini van. As a result, they now have the thinnest skins possible as adults.

User Banned (1 week): Drive-by concern trolling with regards to inclusive language, account in junior phase

You'd think lessons would be learned from the whole latinx thing
User Banned (Permanent): Transphobia, account in Junior Phase

Fetishizing pronouns in non-English languages and reading sexism into the masculine gender as a neutral option in Romance languages is a hilarious bit of colonialism on the part of English speakers. English is, as far as I know, the only language where grammatical gender is structured around human sexuality. There are many ways to refer to women in the masculine gender in Spanish, and vice versa. The truth is, masculine and femenine are labels that were invented relatively late in the evolution of IE languages. Long ago, the two genders were common and neuter, and common eventually split into masculine and feminine, so the former common gender being used as an all-encompassing gender when referring to multiple people is logical. Also, English words barely have any gender markers. If you try to sound perfectly gender neutral in heavily marked languages like Spanish or Italian, you end up having to "soft-ban" words like child (because there isn't a gender neutral word, so they say "infancy", which is hilarious), or repeating every. single. adjective. in every sentence. But I guess this isn't a problem if you think everything should be like in English! In reality, the masculine gender in these languages is unmarked, so that's as close to a neutral gender as you're going to get without the need to add things that have been conceived solely for the convenience of English speakers, and in contempt of the languages they're trying to force this onto.
That new pronoun won't solve any problems, it introduces more rules to the language, and these rules are extraneous, based on English conceptions of grammatical gender, and they're only kicking the can down the road. In two weeks there will be people who will say they don't identify with iel becuase the "i" is too masculine or something, so they'll come up with a fourth pronoun, adding more rules and exceptions to the language.

I still think this story is big enough where Era should be taking a stand as a community and banning all Activision OTs and hype threads until at least Bobby is gone, in solidarity with the employees who have walked out and who are trying to make things better.

What does a gender neutral pronoun have to do with transgender people?

Quote
...

How is this a serious question

Nonbinary trans people

How does this even answer the question. If you're non-binary how can you be trans? And even when we just accept that, doesn't this still make it a non-binary issue instead of a trans one?

Also love how she acts like it's an entirely self explanatory fact though.

You ask this on thebore.com, a site filled with straight gay men?  :lol

I assume samoyed is still banned because sphagnum stepped up for this one:
Quote
Realistically is there anything that can be done to help or stop the genocide? It's sickening how this is going on and barely getting attention
This may sound like whataboutism (it's not, I swear) but since the real answer to this is "no", the best thing Americans can do is reform their own country to a.) make it actually, demonstratively operate morally (especially in terms of indigenous relations and foreign policy) since this strips away claims of hypocrisy that the Chinese government can (rightfully) lob back at the US to cover its ass with and b.) make it really easy to get refugee status. I don't trust American politicians at all to handle this sort of thing with care instead of using it as a blunt stick to attack China with for Cold War 2. Like, Marco Rubio or whoever truthfully has zero interest in the wellbeing of Uyghurs and probably just wants to find a wedge to carve up China by supporting East Turkestan separatists or something. If we actually care, we need to provide a haven, not let the right wing grab onto the narrative for their bloodlust.
Quote from: sphagnum
Actually I take this from Jesus, not Marxism-Leninism, since I'm not a Marxist-Leninist. You may recognize this if you ever paid literally a second of attention to anything I ever post. You can go ask liberals on this board who I used to be friends with what I think about tankies and the CCP if you want.
Quote from: sphagnum
I think conservatives who talk about Tibet and Xinjiang have zero interest in the actual people of Tibet and Xinjiang and that anyone who thinks they do is a useful idiot for American imperialism, in the same way that anyone (myself included, as I used to be a Republican) who ever thought the US gave a shit about the freedom of Iraqis or Afghans was a useful idiot for American imperialism.

Personally, I find it really weird and concerning that the East Turkestan Government in Exile (which just coincidentally happens to be based in Washington, DC) has noticeable contacts with Republicans and the military community.

But hey, YMMV!

See, the thing you don't understand, because you're completely ignorant about my beliefs, is that I literally do support the dismantling of the PRC because I consider it an authoritarian capitalist nation with a veneer of socialism which historically carried out (and is carrying out) atrocities. But I only support this in the context of socialist internationalism, not in the context of US imperial ambitions. In the same way, I support the dismantling of the United States. If, say, the US gave Hawaii back to the native Hawaiians and followed the demands of the Land Back movement, I'd be very pleased and might even believe the US is acting in good faith when it comes to its criticisms of other governments. I think the rest of the world would as well, and this would help put more pressure on China.

We have to think dialectically about these things.

But MOBA's agents had to put a stop to the fun and silence dissent:
Quote from: B-Dubs
Hey, knock off the goddamned derail. This thread has literally nothing to do with the US government, stop trying to distract from the actual topic. Next person to do it gets a ban.

Oh yay, time to handwave veiled threats against a woman because she's responsible for the deaths of people like ___, ____, and ____.

If these cats actually knew the climate in the UK right now, they'd back off a bit. Cis women are stung over some of the remembrance day fawning given that 3 cis women a week get murked, and zero trans people have been killed in the last three years.

That is a conversation that they're never going to have on reset, so they can't factor it in when wondering why people can't appreciate the constant mortal danger they're (not) living in.

If pressed, they will do the following; (but they wont be pressed on era, obvs)
  • its not harassment tho
  • okay, maybe it is harassment, but trans people also get harassed so thats okay
  • okay, maybe harassing someone for things other people did might not be okay, but shes rich so boo hoo hoo

And will then go TERF ISLAND when reasonable people looking at this and going "No, c'mon, that's not fucking okay, stop that" are being MANIPULATED by JKRS SINISTER BRAINWASHING TECHNIQUES.

And will also wonder why people question Pinknews nominal journalistic credentials when they reframe the story as "Innocent protesters attacked by TERF JKR just for innocent protests on awareness week!"

Fuckin hell it's Michael Myers

Quote
A girl I went out on a couple dates with years ago was still on my Facebook friends list. She has RA and has been posting about covid fear and ripping into anti-vaxxers for the past year, fair enough and I agree. But over the past week or so Iíve seen her post countless videos of her at bars and at concerts on dates and shit with no mask and no care in the world.

so tonight she updates her Facebook status and says she thinks she has covid and then goes on to blame anti-vaxxers. So I comment and say, ya know..ĒTake some responsibility for your actionsĒ, maybe stop going out to bars and shows and posting videos and tons of pics of you maskless in public around dudes youíve just met.( I didnít say that last part to her) She quickly deletes the comment, then messages me over messenger asking whatís my problem, I donít know her and what is she supposed to do, hide at home forever? She then says Iím a dick, tells me to shut the fuck up and then blocks me.

so am I a dick? I donít think so. While I agree anti-vaxxers are an issue, you canít lay blame entirely on them if you arenít doing what it takes to be safe. Vaccination alone doesnít cut it.

(Image removed from quote.)
Although I will admit I randomly had the fleeting thought last night that we need to fundamentally change the nature of how protesting operates. We spent untold amounts of energy and money last year just to, what? Ultimately get one Polish TERF company out of thousands of TERFs with flagrant records of abuse and murder deplatformed from ResetERA.com? Kinda put out the idea of reallocating the billions we spend on these pigs to actual social betterment only for it to die at the hands of conservatives and fuck-ass liberals redirecting the conversation away from that onto their petty issues with the "defund" slogan? Have dumbass anarchistic whites use the protests as cover to LARP the LARP they've always dreamed of LARPING? And remember, that was all under conditions exacerbated by pandemic shutdowns. Working class people could finally take to the streets because, well, they weren't really working. We will not get that opportunity again for another lifetime.

Thus, we need to find ways to more efficiently direct civil ire onto those directly responsible for their woes. One idea I suggest is really, indeed, to roll up on the private homes of TERFs (preferably unarmed). They weren't really scared of what happened last year because some kid burning down a police station in a town they were never going to be in because of how Trans* it is doesn't really affect them. If nothing else, it's just red meat to the base- look at how they still stupidly think places like Portland were "burnt down" and literally don't exist as they once did anymore. But remember how caught off guard  J.K. Rowling was when they found her ass, and how they scrambled the troops? That was scary to them.

We need to start actually finding TERFs at this point. And yeah, I know the liberals won't like it because it's unbecoming. But I don't really care what liberals think because they're not after results.

you barely have to have any grasp whatsoever about the history of the world to know that Romance Languages only exist due to those countries being colonised by Rome, and adopting vulgar Latin as their lingua franca.

Colonized person.   :lol

Fuckin hell it's Michael Myers

Quote
A girl I went out on a couple dates with years ago was still on my Facebook friends list. She has RA and has been posting about covid fear and ripping into anti-vaxxers for the past year, fair enough and I agree. But over the past week or so Iíve seen her post countless videos of her at bars and at concerts on dates and shit with no mask and no care in the world.

so tonight she updates her Facebook status and says she thinks she has covid and then goes on to blame anti-vaxxers. So I comment and say, ya know..ĒTake some responsibility for your actionsĒ, maybe stop going out to bars and shows and posting videos and tons of pics of you maskless in public around dudes youíve just met.( I didnít say that last part to her) She quickly deletes the comment, then messages me over messenger asking whatís my problem, I donít know her and what is she supposed to do, hide at home forever? She then says Iím a dick, tells me to shut the fuck up and then blocks me.

so am I a dick? I donít think so. While I agree anti-vaxxers are an issue, you canít lay blame entirely on them if you arenít doing what it takes to be safe. Vaccination alone doesnít cut it.

A girl he supposedly went out a couple of times and was still in his friend list on Facebook (Ree loathes Facebook, they demand you delete your account there), says he doesn't know her?  Ladies and gentlemen of thebire, this here is a virgin.  Also I recall OP bragging how he supposedly banged a teen in his late 20s and how the teen was the one begging for the banging.  Dude gets very offensive when it comes to age gap relationships.

Cerium took a colonized person who was enslaved by the Nissan corporation and The White People and set her to work for free while he made off with millions?  Fucked up.

Nepenthe had to perm that guy because he was trying "get [her] to recognize some definition of "colonialism" that doesn't really matter to my experience "

Her experience with the history of romance languages is different so he had to go.

Fucking hilarious and so ignorant. Like of course would Nepenthe, who constantly asks people to be self critical, lack zero introspection. Sorry to break the news that even a black american can engage in cultural imperialism.

What that word really means to her: it enables her deluded fantasies of someday larping as Lucio, a character from the one game at ActiBlizz that has no confirmed in a court of law cases of abuse and thus is exempt from cancellation which is not actually a thing anyway.

Also the fact that she denies it so strongly proves she's a colonizer. A sad case of white American fragility.

pretty sure her share of at least 1/7th of a nissan micra puts her in the "owners class" to most people in the world  :lol

Colonization is when something bad happens to me. So if something bad happens to you maybe don't steal my word? Only colonizers do that.
