I feel like the problem with CNC machines would be the human underneath moving, even just unconsciously flexing or motions of their skin and blood, which would turn a small poke into a fucking stab. Making more and more safety precautions against such a thing would eventually cripple the machine's ability to even work at a decent pace.

Which you know, is the reason why we have humans over machines in basically any other place. Because humans can react in pretty real time to things on instinct, whereas a machine needs to be programmed to do so.

The Unicorn Overlord thing is absolutely a case of "the well is poisoned."

Because its clear that most of the problems is them trying to fluff up the dialogue to sound more grand and medieval, which probably wouldn't be a problem if localizers hadn't poisoned the well. So now literally anything, even stuff that is probably innocent enough, will be attacked, critiqued and run around.

Because so far of all the examples the only thing that looks slightly ideological is turning "old women" into "unmagicked octogenarians." Which has enough plausible deniability to just be coincidental, but no one will give them the benefit of the doubt because they've thrown away any good will anyone would ever want to give them.

The true victim in all this is the parts that people don't notice. Like the big focus in Triangle Strategy in removing all gendered text, but nobody bringing up that the game let's you successfully argue that the Not-Jews deserve to be put into the Labor Camps and have their rights stripped.

I'm glad Geeks and Gamers hasn't changed a bit from their tried and true style of taking a two sentence story and turning it into an essay filled with unnecessary fluff to abuse the algorithm with.

And to keep myself consistent with my principles, since it is a woman claiming it, I'll say didn't happen and if it did, probably nothing like you are trying to portray it. But at least she is getting some free victim cred off it.

This place, and most of our "side," is filled with people who talk a lot of big game and then accidentally reveal they put zero true thought into anything as they reveal they already accept A-F points the Left sold them and try to start from G.

There really isn't another definition of art other than "what people like."

That's why I believe Ferber openly states that "CP has negligible artist value, and we don't care regardless." Because people could argue it does and likely win legally because if it didn't then works like Lolita or American Beauty would have to be banned to maintain the consistency.

CP can be easily legislated because it involves real children and society has come together to agree that any involvement from them is damaging. Period. So no arguments can be made against that hard wall.

Which is why the lolicon question is a trap. Since it lacks that one unquestioning brick to anchor to, any attempt to legally fight it will be a losing battle of letting the government have open season to define something undefinable. Which they will absolutely use for them and the other elites' benefit over protecting children.

I don't think you can compare inceldom to guys who make the deliberate choice to stay the fuck away from crazy women

Almost like incel is short for something, and thereby has the counterpart "volcel" to differentiate itself from those guys.

And they are already midway into a trilogy(?) of one of their most beloved games where all the damage is already done. They can't reverse course now, because the prior entries already exist and have shown their intents.

So a huge portion of their fans have already been burned and either won't continue or didn't buy it at all. Which means they absolutely need these new "fans" to make the huge money sink pay off, because you can't lure back in your old fans but also require them to play the already pozzed originals you released to get caught up.

That's why franchises are such a risky basket to put your eggs in. Decisions made once will hurt you until its done, especially at the entry point.

If you removed all the “i hate women” shit their rhetoric is like 95% correct

One of my favorites and its even funnier how its massively upvoted. You can admit they are totally right about everything and everyone nods along.

But since they are women, you can't be upset about it. You just have to let them act like this.

Going down the line, its just people openly admitting to basic incel talking lines (even saying the stats back them up) but then having to throw in "yeah but they do it wrong" without ever explaining how to do it right is. And considering the amount of people trying to jump in and still defend women on it, apparently its still wrong to even say it.

The funniest part about all this is that its almost a full 180 mirror of a lot of the complaints people had about the remake originally on the otherside. Like, almost done to the same sentences in a lot of ways.

Squeenix just can't win, and the fact that they think they can throw these little "we still based, plz buy" to win back their fans without alienating their new "fans" is as retarded as always with them.

Also, they act like the same reveals didn't show that Cid has been completely scrubbed clean of all his sex appeal. Meaning that they are still winning, but they can't handle a single little loss like a bikini slipping through.

I feel like trying to charge a guy for "put a lizard on his penis" would make the court look more silly than anything. As is acting like that's some massive act on the same level as penetrating your dog, which is what most people assume from "zoophile." Its still wrong, regardless but anyone hearing you explain it will not take it seriously as a "crime."

Screeching about things like that helps him more than it hurts by making the charges against him sound like a joke, when he has far more real and evil things under his belt.

I always get psychopaths and sociopaths mixed up--even after looking up the definitions of both.

Its because they are made up terms made to evoke emotional responses in the courtroom. They aren't real or even diagnosable, its literally just "she's crazy!" with a fancier sounding word.

And obscenity requires a "common man" judgement over it, which due to our degenerate society would make nearly all porn fail to meet it. Heck most of it would even be able to argue an "artistic value" angle to defend themselves with and likely pass in the case of drawn works.

Which is why Ferber specifically states CP doesn't get that protection to begin with. CP harms actual children which means no other questions need to be asked about its legality.

Its not even just the loli thing that is specifically cancelling him.

Its that the right eceleb finally told people it was okay to do so. Proving as always that people have no principles or morality to get them moving, they need "authority" to tell them they can destroy someone.

pornography has never been protected by the First Amendment

Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition was a literal landmark SCOTUS case about the very topic (child porn) that said in no uncertain terms that the First Amendment says a person should never have to prove their speech is lawful, the government must prove it isn't and that it must do so in concrete and specific terms instead of "general wide net" ones.

Which is heavy in citing New York v. Ferber, another relevant SCOTUS case, that says that one of the biggest illegalities of child porn is the real damage it does to actual children by its creation and in doing so it has zero protections under any speech or law, even if it isn't "obscene."

Its all degenerate and anyone talking about it should be bullied and shamed out of any conversation, but the stance of those who are supposed to define the Amendment itself has consistently been "the government has no right to say shit unless its very specific."

It was a general statement, not personally directed. And meant more I had no idea because it was so stupid I couldn't even begin to get it.

While everyone will talk at length about the obvious reasons, one important one to consider is physical biology.

A girl flashing her boobs to a teenage boy isn't a super huge threat, because even at that age he is likely able to overpower her. That's just how our dimorphism works. Its why almost all sexual assaults from women involve emotions and social threats, or weapons. So if he is at an age where he can enjoy it, its instinctual to see it as harmless fun because we also don't recognize her as a threat to him.

The flipside being that the adult male doing the same can easily overpower the younger girl. He is an actual immediate physical threat, and we all recognize that on a subconscious level. His intents might be equally harmless, but he has the capability to be a problem and that makes it seem far worse.

Of course this isn't the case everytime and there is always a bunch of contexts, but like all double standards it starts on instinctual reactions and then we backtrace a justification to guess why we feel that way.

There is also the difference in our brains, which is that I have seen women often and surprisingly easily flash their tits with zero intent to sleep with a person while I can't think of a man that would flash the rod without being at least willing to fuck them. You figure that one out, because its too dumb for me.

Well it was directly written by one of the creators, with the other on as a consultant. Which makes it clearly the point they were building towards and intending the entire time.

Especially as they admitted the only reason why they didn't be "more openly gay" and opened the comic with the gay kiss is because the network was holding them back, so clearly this was what they truly wanted it to be.

You don't need to consider it canon, we all have our series we feel that way about (I got strong opinions on Dragon Ball). Buts its existence tells what they were trying to do with the series proper and that's my point all along.

Its even less than that. Most of them get them as a masochistic dopamine hit to counter thier depression.

Girls like it are constantly posting "need a new tattoo" everytime they get sad because it gives them that temporary relief from their own pathetic existence. Same with the holes and dyes.

The appearance change is just a secondary benefit, the bigger purpose is the needle and bleach giving them pain and a feeling of "rebellious taboo" that keeps the darkness away for another day.

Its really funny they are still trying to push this Christian Nationalism angle, as their own golems are starting to bang on the gates in pro-Palestinian rage.

Really shows how deliberate they "sowing division" has been for them for so long.

The only way all of us aren't "privileged" enough that this doesn't effect us is if you have loyalty, or even citizenship, to another country.

Which is less of people being privileged to not care and more of you being priveleged to be part of the Special Class that gets to subvert other nations without being criticized.

I didn't say it was near as bad. Few things reach the level of TLOU2.

I used it as one of the most obvious examples of "we wanted X representation/woke BS, and then wrote the story to conform around it." And then how fans will twist around that by saying "yeah but its logical and set up that way" as if the writers just had their hands tied in doing so.

It was created years before you could be outright hostile to your fans and get away with it, and was coming off the heels of a successful and well made series/team. So its not gutter garbage, but its clearly being used to push an ideology that should have told you to not watch it from moment one.

Let's not forget that its Korra canon that homophobia is one of the worst things about Sozin and his effects on the world, up there with a century of war and genocide.

The most pathetic part of this isn't her doing that as a general act.

Its what she felt the need to get as much attention as possible on someone else's day. She was there for her (I assume) friend's supposed most important day possible, and it still needed to be about her and give her attention.

So even if you didn't have an opinion on her outfit, she is still an awful person and should be condemned and shamed endlessly.

Adamrises 2 points ago +2 / -0

Generally when you gotta focus on a specific word and say "she wasn't that good", it means the rest of it is still completely accurate and my point stands.

TLOU2 was shit, and its defenders use the same arguments you are to say it wasn't.

Her mom already had the GFM set up within 24 hours of her death.

Based on just this, I can pretty righteously assume this is a terrible person who was raising an even worse person who felt justified in anything because of their politics.

The world is a better person for her death, and her mom losing half her free sympathy instantly due to "misgendering/deadnaming" in her little sob fest means she couldn't even milk it as effectively as she wanted.
