The SJWs are basically infecting the English language with double speak.

Oh you poor summer child. You have no idea of the horrors that await you in advanced SJW language infiltration.

They largely made German unparsable. Imagine adding "*ess" behind every noun which identifies a group of people.

Just today I read the official proclamation of new Wu Flu edicts which contained gems like:

Event organizer*esses, operator*esses, service provider*esses and supplier*esses are required to check vaccine passports and enforce compliance.

Oh and the catholic church is currently discussing whether they should gender the word "god".

Please tell me you are kidding about the church

I'm not, unfortunately. Evangelicals went full far-left retard long ago (e.g. having vulva painting workshops) and Catholics are now doing their best to catch up. Germany is pretty much fucked.

I’m not a effect Christian but I am one. Sad to see what has happened to the church in my lifetime. Especially some churches going along with lgbt mafia

Even rural churches are flying alphabet rainbow flags in Germany.

I've said if before: just like 90 years ago we have another Gleichschaltung under an extremist ideology.

Thank you for inspiring me never to learn German. I've been trying to decide what new language to pick up. Maybe I'll go with Latin. They can't corrupt a dead language, right?

They alter the views and opinions and memory of the dead all the time. I'd go with a nerd language, they're afraid of legitimate nerds.

The Black Speech

Doesn't actually exist beyond the ring inscription.

What does exist is just as bad as LARP because it isn't Tolkien's work.

I hate reading that shit in German. I make a specific point of only ever writing in the old way.

Wait, wait wait. English itself used to have -ess to denote the feminine version of something (waitress, stewardess, lioness, tigress, actress, goddess etc.) but that suffixing was the FIRST thing the nascent 80s PC crowd jumped on and got rid of. So, now they're bringing it back? Wish they'd make up their fucking minds.

And "god" is already gendered. It's masculine if you're being specific, neuter if you're being general. Goddess if you specifically mean a chick god.

Same stuff is spreading in French too. "Operateur" would refer to male operator, "Operatrice" would refer to a female one, so now, to be "inclusive", we have to write "Operateur.trice" (and yes, you have to put the period in-between, making it just annoying to read when you have 10 per sentences). And again, that's just for male/female, I can't wait for them to introduce brand new "non-binary" denomination too. Normally, the male version was always considered the neutral version, but obviously, that was just "toxic patriarchy".

They are also making new pronuns up, like "iel" which is a mix of "il" (male pronun) and "elle" (female).

Infecting other languages with bad English, too.

"Latinx", putting the -x suffix that loosely gets used in English into a Romance language that is an actual example of Imperialistic enforcement towards the cult. Something like only 3% self identify as Latinx while the other 97% will be a mix of "IDGAF" and "It's already gendered, fuck off."

I saw that article. Final straw with gamerant. I truly miss those wonderful days when gaming magazines and websites discussed games. Honestly if you are one of the few people who believe they are the opposite sex….play as the opposite sex. If you believe you are neither then pretend you are whatever. I honestly wonder how many of these people actually play video games. I remember thinking that the capitulation to trans agents was the height of absurdity until I saw how the non binary nonsense is taken seriously

I truly miss those wonderful days when gaming magazines and websites discussed games.

If those days ever existed it was over by the late 80s. I still remember articles slobbering all over Kings Quest 4 because the main char was a GURL! And articles tut tutting over tomb raider's 4 poly tiddies and everquests boobelf cover art.

You make a good point. I can remember some feminist whining but most gamers ignored them. Just like in comic books I remember in the 90s the owner of my local shop said that until they whine about half naked men in spandex too he will ignore the stupid feminists. Now they are in charge.

Also it wasn’t often I’d hear stuff like that but now it seems rare for a game review not to have some lecture about current society.

Also I remember playing Kings Quest 4. That came out when I was still in single digits so I wasn’t reading magazines yet but at the time a female protagonist didn’t bother me. Now I probably wouldn’t buy it since they can’t shut up with over praising something that checks boxes.

You can't win them. Don't bother trying. Even their examples of previous games show why you can't win:

"The Last of Us Part 2 faced controversy for its deadnaming and general excessive violence towards its trans teen character Lev"

So basically, if you have a trans in your game, it can't be the target of any violence what-so-ever. That character doesn't even suffer that much in the game compared to the others. I mean, hello?! His own sister has her arm smashed into pieces from a hammer, that results in hours of pain, screaming every second, and have to cut it cause it's just unrecoverable. Lev just gets slapped once or twice here and there. Sure, he's the one who suffered the most...

"the problem stemmed from its two voice selection options; if the player chose the feminine voice, V would be referred to as a female throughout the game, and if they chose the masculine, referred to as male. Among nonbinary and trans people, making assumptions based on voice tones often leads to misgendering."

Imagine having to voice hundred thousands of words, and then doing that multiples times for every possible pronuns in existence. All that, for 0.1% of the population that are just Twitter addict. Sounds like money well spent to me.

Starfield is going to make one tiny mistake somewhere, and all that "good will" will go back against them.

If they're spending money on that, they're not spending money elsewhere. Money is a finite resource. And for sure, diminishing returns exist, but there's ALWAYS areas that are lacking in some way.

You could pay a gender studies xiggy and thirty voice actors, OR... You could get 20 more beta testers and 2 more programmers to ensure the game is 100% bug-free... OR you could get 10 more artists and 5 more physics programmers to make sure that some minor aspect looks amazing, maybe hairworks or how clothes flow with motion and with airflow. OR you could get 5 pro gamers and 5 programmers to go through the game's activity and difficulty curves one more time and make sure it is engaging and reasonable.

These are either/or, not and, options. You pay the xiggy their danegeld and dump tens of thousands on pointless voice acting and scripting, or you improve the game.

Any company that says they should pay xiggy instead of make their product better, showcases that they have no interest in making a good product. Why would I want to buy a bad product? No game dev in existance is so rich that the money spent there could not have conceivably been spent somewhere else.

Not only that, but any creative work is the culmination of a trillion creative desicions large and small.

Ideology is making an increasingly larger number of those dicisions for them, by now the majority, and that's why everything made by ideologues is trash.

They're not doing this for 0.1% of the population. They're doing this because they're under the control of a brain virus that is compelling them to force into existence a new culture where hierarchies are formed with the woke at the top.

Wow this really caters to 1 percent of the population

But I want to play as a Buddhist. Where's my Buddhist options, you buddhaphobes

Why can't they just pretend their character in game is another gender, like they do in real life?

Todd, is the game good?

NEXT QUESTION

Todd, are you going to fix or upgrade your engine?

Todd, how many gender pronouns are included with character creation?

"Oh, an excellent question. Let me answer this in depth..."

Yeah, sounds about fucking right.

French was "augmented" with "iel", the first gender neutral pronoun last week.

Again, this will all come to a head when true tragedy strikes and the weak get purged when left to their own devices. I don't think the "gender neutral" would survive a flat tire

French already HAS a "neuter gender" pronoun! Why does it need a second one?

Le, la, les.
