Thanks for making this so easy.
Same concept. It's funny that you left out the "faggot" part and double-down on "mocking effeminate men," though.
Tell me, if you don't think it's okay to call people "nigger," why not? Why do or don't you think it's okay to call people "faggot?" Why do you think it's okay to refer to things you dislike as "limp-wristed?"

Because "faggot" is a derogatory term for a homosexual, typically male, person, and I know lots of effeminate, aka "limp wristed" heterosexual males.

You're the one assuming homosexuals are effeminate here. Why are you such a homophobe, man?

Sweet backpedaling. Nobody believes you. It's like when someone tries to defend calling someone "nigger" by saying it only means "an ignorant black person."

That movie killed the careers of John Leguizamo, Chris Penn, and Wesley Snipes, and literally killed Patrick Swayze and Robin Williams...

Other than that, it was a brilliant piece of cinematography..

Where? I haven't seen any in the past few pages. I've only seen you using an anti-homosexual slur.

Going back to what Revenant posted, am I the only one who thinks Galdus wrote that?

"Limp-wristed" is a slur?

EDIT: What about "pantywaist"? Google tells me it means effiminate. But it's also a noun. It's inherently more offensive to call someone a noun than to describe them with an adjective. Like so:

"David is Jewish."
"David is a Jew."
"Lily is black."
"Lily is a black."

Offensive nouns!

If there's one thing I've learned, it's that, unfortunately, we don't get to decide what other people are offended by.

Doesn't mean we should necessarily cede to their sensitivities... hell, that's the point of this thread - but people are going to decide to interpret these things on their own.

The real progress is when they realize they don't control the other side of the equation, either...

We, as a progressing society, discover over time that maybe some things are offensive enough to enough people that we shouldn't do them because we really don't want to be dicks to each other (most of us, at least)
It does go the other way, of course. Some things that were offensive a few decades ago are fine now. Societal norms are like that.
I mean, if you want to go to a country where you don't have to worry about being PC, the Word of God is law, etc, you can always move to Iran.

In other news, Dylan Roof has been sentenced to death.

Alright this is me venting real quick about something that's dumb but irritates me:

How in the hell did our society reach the point that Wolfenstein game featuring killing Nazis is considered "political" and people are calling it leftist/communist propaganda where you 'kill the good guys' and 'racist against white people?

God what kind of stupid fucking bastards honestly think the nazis were good guys? How ignorant, entitled, and racist do you have to be to think that?



EDIT:

https://thinkprogress.org/a-gay-swee...-92d070611ed9/

Disgusting fucking slimeballs. It's ironic though, every time Frost and Gani and Hammer would whine about how liberals were undermining western society it was obvious bullshit but this? This demonstrates these goddamn festering white supremacist ass-boils genuinely want to 'peacefully' through voting and political activity make it legal to gas and purge folks.

Fuck this. Fuck "Peaceful Ethnic Cleansing" Fuck each and every one of these gutless reprehensible little shitworms.

Theres an article from Kotaku on how The Hero is the same as Nazis because of his Aryan body, and how as an Army Ranger killing machine, the line between him and nazis is thin.

https://kotaku.com/what-wolfenstein-...s-p-1820020102

The ad campain for it conflated trump voters for nazis.

Killing Nazis isnt political.

The controversy is a non starter.

And 99.9% of the complaints online are about a 6 hour playthrough video with three hours of cutscenes

Did you even fucking read the article? Nowhere does it say the hero is the "same" as the Nazis, the article makes an analysis about how the story addresses the whole aryan idealization nonsense

Honestly Ruin, this doesn't even feel like a good faith response, you can go to literally any set of reviews and see the Neo-nazis posting, the stuff is self evident.

You refusing to acknowledge doesn't make me rethink my position it just makes me think you're delusional because the evidence is so glaringly in opposition to your flimsy-ass attempt to paint this as a case of people calling all right-wingers Nazis

Apparently enough to get two thirds of voting austrians to vote for you, if the recent election over here is any indication.
I'd ask the Occupational Forces to come over and put some heads back right on but something tells me Trump, Zar Putin and Brexit aren't exactly gonna help... let's see who's ruling France right now....

You know how after WW2 every now and then there'd be a Nazi-purge in Austria's political parties? Never happened in the FPÖ; the current leader used to be a Neo-Nazi and isn't even trying to hide it. And yet somehow that shitshow hasn't been collectively thrown into jail for Wiederbetätigung yet.
And the ÖVP, which technically won, used to basically be Austria's conservative party. They've turned itself into an FPÖ-light to get more votes and are now going into a coalition with the FPÖ. Only hope here is that, historically, the ÖVP tends to be a dick to their coalition partners in order to grab power, except since Kurz is just a Strache-light i'm not sure that helps us all that much.

Thank Goddess Austria is a fart on the map and doesn't have any real power. All they're gonna screw up is us.
