Anybody that doesn't have Yoshi level ideology would likely have to change their names to have an account last more than 5 seconds on resetera.

Granted with the Non-Binary transgender women with a lesbian lover (actual profile description from before) mod is now gone maybe the bans won't be as harsh.

Nah, she was just one of the many lunatics that ran the asylum. There are still the likes of Hecht, Brazil, and more that are highly prevalent on the site.

Is it even possible to discuss something like that from an "identity politics" perspective?

If it was a bunch of white college bros doing that then they've already got the "talking points" well practiced about how white cis straight males are raised by society and what society teaches them.

Change the demographics involved though and those talking points have to take a back seat and in-fighting is pretty much the logical conclusion.

Where I see a brutal assault that should be condemned in the strongest terms (which it has been) others will just be looking for how this confirms their worldview.

What we see in the video is simply something that shouldn't ever happen to anyone.
There's no "identity politics" content there for people who are ONLY interested in that kind of thing.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

How can you be non-binary AND transgender? "Transgender" implies a dichotomy just by itself - you cannot go across genders without a starting gender and ending gender.

It's OK for some to attack other members, in a topic where people have got various bans.

I swear that they make some posts as bait to ban people. There was a recent one where some spazz claims Japan and Visual Novels are homophobic and I'm glad I didn't take the bait. I hardly post on there, but why even have a forum if you can't have "civil discourse" among one another.

There are GAFers who believe themselves to be the lone man standing in front of the tank column.

It doesn't matter what the "mob" stands for, only that you are standing up against it. Of course, standing against it is done in the safest, most low-effort manner possible (internet forums and social media). You get a tiny spike of adrenaline and self-righteousness, then you're off ambulance-chasing your next source of oppression.

I imagine similar delusions of grandeur among our friends at ERA.

The former. Because mods there seemed to always know why they signed off for that job and they seem to love it.

ERA suffers from anger issues again. I was hopeful on the first page, seeing plenty of people say "seek therapy" and "this isn't helpful" and so forth, but then the ideologues begin making excuses for violence yet again, like clockwork.
That guy should do just just like Ms. Mankey did.

That went well /s. And I'm sure someone learned their lesson there.

At least 20 people got banned in the topic for the same lame excuse.
Just explaining there is a world outside leftwing US ideology where blackfacing is generally no issue.
It's hilarious really.

He didn't get banned for an opinion but for simply stating the fact that offensive blackface is not a thing in germany for the vast majority of the population, which I can confirm is 100% accurate.
He even clearly stated that he agrees with the concept of blackface being offensive and still gets banned.
AMAZEEEEEE

How is that a "dismissive commentary"? He said he agrees with it. Holy shit.

Lol they didn’t fight off the urge

They couldn’t throw because they are a pussy and only means of reacting to something in real life is to go and lie on the internet about almost being a badass

Amazing thread. If you see somebody with a different political view than you, you shouldn't act or think about hurting this person. That's crazy.

Scattered throughout that thread are some reasonable responses, but the bulk of it is just illusions of being a bad ass, beating up nazis

This is from a Tiger Woods thread where someone called him a coon. They were originally going to give the user only a warning but after other users cried a moderator posted this.

So is this how "reclaimed language" works? It's okay to use racial slurs as long as it's someone they don't agree with?
I see about 5 paragraphs of BS when they could of just wrote "We do what we want, FUCK Y'ALL"

And this is the first that I have ever heard coon not being an offensive word, but good to know that it has a valid context LOL.

The irony of social justice warriors explaining their beliefs that the races should be treated differently.:messenger_anguished:

Hot damn these people are as stupid as humans get without being classified as deficient. These idiots need to wake up. Nothing good comes from telling kids "everyone should be treated the same regardless of immutable characteristics, except for characteristic a gets these extra rights, characteristic b gets these extra rights, and all you straight white kids need to atone for the sins of people who died 100 years ago you friggan little bigots bastards."

Their staffs once again lying and misleading to suit their agendas, what a basket of deplorables. This user is calling them out but 90% of the members have been misled.

Crazy. I just read quite a bit of that and it's so incorrect it's blowing my mind. It's like people on Era connect sex with pedophile as their first thought. That's not what the article states.

I also find it sad that so many people are getting away with extremely hostile posts full of personal attacks and hateful language.

I rarely read Era so it really surprises me when I see how civil other forums are compared to Era. Are they aware how hostile they are being? These posts are so mean and the general vibe is so... bully-like.

You know what's funny about that Animal Farm quote I posted above? It perfectly describes Resetera.

If you've ever read the book or watched the movie, you'll understand that Animal Farm is about Animals who felt oppressed by their Farmer, decided to revolt, and create their own government.

Except their new government literally turned out to be 100x worse than before and reveled in hypocrisy.



It's literally the story of every Socialist country ever.

"Everyone is equal, except for the people ruling over you."

They have an insane persecution complex. Anyone disagreeing or even having a different viewpoint is one of "Them" invading their forum.

And to add further insult to the injury, the man who wrote Animal Farm and 1984 was actually a Left-wing person himself.

But even George Orwell knew there were those on the Left who were far more extreme with their views and if they got their way, we would end up with a totalitarian society.

In all honesty, I'm not exactly opposed to Left or Right-wing politics. What I'm opposed to is the SJW madness which is clearly out to destroy society.
The SJW's have successfully trademarked words like "Racist" and "Sexist" in order to push their agenda with zero resistance.
