Resetera is just a POS forum!

One dude posted that it was weird that the character from Forspoken is black and that there is no black writers.

I replied to him that it doesn't have to be. So I got many replies about being insensitive and racist! What?

Then I replied again saying that Everyone should get a chance of voicing a character and that it doesn't need to be a black person to write a good back character.

Resetera mods: Banned Permanent

IMO, my position is not racist, on the contrary! In fact, personally I'm the least racist person in the world.

Now I understand all the REEEEEEEEEEEEEE comments done here.

Those dudes over Resetera, and I mean the mods are just a POS people trying to look woke and whatnot.

I believe that by banning for any comment, without allowing any discussion it's censorship. One thing is to moderate the discussion that doesn't get out of hand, other entirely is to ban people because it differs from your views.

I don't care I got banned, I don't go there often. Somehow that comment caught my eye and I replied. I forgot you need to be very careful not to offend anyone over there, specially the mods. Annoying!

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.

ResetEra was born out of a witch hunt and established to be a nonstop witch hunt. Strict orthodoxy to the rules of a tiny minority is the reason it exists.

It's one of the stupidest things with Hollywood at the moment.
Only a black person can write a black character.
Only a trans person can play a trans character.
Only a blind person should play a blind character.

Get the fuck outta here.

They're actually doing that in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. One of the characters is one of the blind Andorians introduced in Enterprise and the guy playing him is legally blind.

I should mention I'm not against people with disabilities being hired to represent that specific disability. But I think it's beyond stupid that it should be a requirement.
