Loudly yelling "what???" and "I don't get it!!!" repeatedly isn't going to make the movie or game or show go back to explain it to you
especially since you clearly just spaced out watching said events explaining this and now you're calling the story bad to save face

people who say they’re sorry for something vaguely but aren’t willing to talk about something specific if you ask aren’t offering a sufficient apology and i’ve known too many manipulative or toxic people who would do that kind of thing

“i’m sorry” but you try to talk about what actually hurt or mention it and they get angry at you for even being hurt by them

this happened with this manipulative ****er i dated once and my own parents so it’s not just people i vaguely knew/these were people incredibly important to me

make your apologies direct and specific xoxo and i know i’m saying this when i don’t even talk to a lot of people but i do use this logic when i do try to talk about issues

i feel like a lot of people don’t even realise when they don’t apologise sufficiently and assume that just saying they’re sorry after a lot of wrangling or needless pain is always sufficient which is just incorrect. if it’s a genuine apology then at least they’re trying but the way people would fume at me just for being sad or the way that people would only apologise if i really yelled at them and then kept repeating the same things anyway makes me believe many of them were not even honest and were just saving face.

I want Realms of the Elderlings fanworks ban revoked...or someone adapt these masterpieces of fantasy already as games, movies or shows, it’s so great it could be what GOT was before it became bad. The author have made nothing since the end of that saga so being able to read fanfictions of it would be highly welcomed.

Woke mentality is a poison, firing someone just because of a joke is dumb and everyone who sent hate should be ashamed of themselves...stop making a tempest out of a glass of water! It’s going too far if we can barely say anything without making someone angry.

okay but is the "joke" actually racist? sexist? perhaps homophobic or transphobic? or was it something innocent that doesn't hurt others? because there's a difference between a joke and trying to hide your bigoted views by going "it's just a joke, you're too sensitive"

if it's a "joke" that hurts someone, then the person deserves to get fired.

if it was truly innocent and non harmful then the person doesn't deserve it. but without knowing the context of the joke, i can't really determine if it was innocent personally. i'd just have to go off of your words.

if it's something at the expense of another, then that's pretty rude and the person should be warned at the very least.

Also if a site issues a ban on discussing Covid-19 talk as a whole. That's bad. Like literally everyone can get a case of that and need all the info they can get. I get not wanting to be discussion of it, but at that point you'd have to remove yourself from the convo and not the convo ending dead in it's tracks. Noticed this happened on Subeta where your pets can mutate and be bloody so I am just like wtf is this ****?

Wait, is that only on Subeta or elsewhere? Neopets was letting it go as long as it doesn't go into detail (so "the pandemic" or "the current situation" is fine), and Flight Rising just straight up allows it as long as it doesn't get morbid.

going back to this subject i think its really scary how the mindset of people thinking that everybody who doesn't share the same mindset should be purged is quite eh. being woke isn't wrong but when its to the point where you think being more woke makes you a better person is where it gets really sketchy and kinda toxic. sometimes it just seems like people just want to feel offended for others and that's kinda WeirdChamp

Only Subeta so far is like "NO TALK ABOUT IT". I would not be surprised if other petsites started doing that tho.

Yeah like you still mention plague and infections because that is literally a part of the game. Plaguebringer cometh.

Meanwhile Subeta seeing the word "Infection" or "virus" craps the bed.

Because of the game's tumblr roots, it's a real ass risk that just mentioning your IRL problems leads to doxxing on the other end (because you exalted someone's bad decision or something, the older fandom is petty like that). There are some asshole mods in the team that just delete whenever though - but covid itself isn't specificially a rule like Subeta.

Also here's an unpopular opinion on FR to stay on topic - I think open reg is the best thing that happened to it because slowly but surely, the old elite is getting pushed out, even if the overdone memes in the forums annoy me a tad. Now they can't just yell on tumblr that someone in the rival clique dared to touch their content or like something they didn't, because that's actually just a random kid that wandered in.

I’m against getting rid of fictional characters or not letting kids see certain movies because of «**negative connotations/racist stereotypes**», I, a millenial grew up in the early 2000s with many Disney movies even «**offensive**» stuff like Dumbo or Aristocats and loved them. Did not watched Peter Pan but I wasn’t weirded out or angered that it got a world in birth by sleep. So what is happening now that we want to get rid of Pepe le pew, Speedy Gonzales, kids accounts of Disney plus not allowed classics of our childhood? People are overeacting. Wait, you were kids too before, right? So you grew up with these so why are you pissed at them now?

Hey, we can’t even get a great villain anymore in animated movies because of that PC culture, don’t be too dark, too emotional, play it safe, don’t make anyone in serious need of a snickers angry. MAKE IT STOP!!! Stop being crybabies on fiction! Be more respectful sure, I accept that sentiment but it’s fake, caricatural, cartoony so stop being offended by it!

Sure, you can still watch them on an adult account...but the whole thing is deeply saddening. The fact that this mentality is causing animated movies to feel worse than before because they play it too safe is just putting salt on the wound of my love for Disney already damaged by pointless remakes of classics...hey a solution...uh maybe un cancel Once if you want live action of Disney instead.

But those parents are mostly my generation and the one before it now adult, right? So why would they now don’t want their kids to watch movies they likely had in VHS format? Why are we talking about blame now...we grow up with them, it does not make us messed up? They were just fun to watch with iconic emotional moments. Was the stereotypes racist, yes...I’m fully aware of it but I’m not here for that. For me movies like Aristocats are everybody want to be a cat or for Dumbo the beautiful baby of mine...not stuff to be offended by but classics of the past.

I get the point, it's still feel weird but maybe it's for the better. However, I don't think I saw in animated movies anything that was truly gross or insulting or demeaning to the level of straight propaganda.

while i think trying to hide old cartoons that not many people watch anymore is kinda silly i also think that the argument of "well i didn't get offended" is kinda bad. if you are complaining about how you didn't really get affected by racial stereotypes in cartoons cool, but what about the people who did? do you honestly believe that every black person in the world wasn't offended by the crows literally called "jim" when dumbo came out? especially before the mlk's "i had a dream" speech was even a thought in his head? sure there are gonna be people who didn't care about depiction in cartoons at the time but I'm also sure there were still people who hated it.

now what i don't get is getting rid of pepe from loony toons. i thought the whole purpose of him was to show that this type of attitude was bad and never works on people. this may be contradicting to what i said above but there's is literally no way any child has the thought of raping people because they watched a cartoon skunk get rejected. heck there are lots of skits where the genders are reversed. did people not even watch the cartoons they are complaining about?

whats also kinda weird to me is how speedy is getting canceled again. because he was already removed from cartoon network in the early 2000s. but then came back quickly because of demand from Hispanic and Latin american organizations calling him a cultural icon. which kinda leads me on to believe that people are getting offended on behalf of others.
