Possession of real CP is proof of being complicit in a crime, namely trafficking in child pornography. It's no different from being caught with schedule 1 drugs or unlicensed NFA firearms.

I absolutely agree on your point on depictions of real people. even if the person was not involved in the production of the drawing, animation, or what have you, a depiction of a real person who did not consent to such a depiction being created is absolutely a violation of their rights. if that person is also a minor, I would absolutely lump it in with any other real CP.

you assume there is equal protection under the law. the only thing that matters is that the chosen targets are fought, and the chosen sacred cows are protected. the law means nothing.

devil's advocate: if they want to accurately depict Pacific Northwest culture, pride flags are a big part of it. The rainbow Mafia has tons of power up there.

is it CP? I argue not strictly. At the very least, anything that doesn't involve abuse or sexual activity with real actual children should not carry the same legal weight as CP.

Are people who willingly consume it sick in the head? that's a very yes. Are they dangerous? potentially. More so than people who do not consume it. I would support measures to restrict such people from entering schools or working with children in general.

More like:

Season 1: learns to respect the teachings of old as well as respect the delicate new world. She pays a heavy price to learn this lesson, but it is fixed through deus ex machina.

Season 2: learns to be weary of authority, even when the goals of said authority sound just. Pays a heavy price to learn this lesson.

Season 3: she is literally beaten down to her lowest, and has to rely on her friends to save her.

Season 4: recovers from the harsh reality of season 3 after heavy counseling, learning to empathize with the villains such that she can deescalate a crisis. (granted, the de-escalation comes pretty late).

Seasons 1-4: is a shitty romantic interest and toys with the love lives of her friends.

fair, but the comics are not cannon as far as I'm concerned, and neither is the retcon on how the avatar state works.

Not wearing the wedding party dress is a pretty faggy thing to do for a bridesmaid, but faggots gonna fag. I wouldn't dwell on it.

agreed. the power level of the main character was definitely overblown, my thesis is just that her character arc was compelling.

People lump LoK with the likes of TLJ, TLOU2, Captain Marvel, Amazon's LotR:RoP, Amazon's Wheel of Time, etc etc.

having watched most of these movies, I can see why people who haven't watched Korra would come to this conclusion. much of the marketing and social climate around these movies and shows was the same.

I'm not saying legend of Korra was a masterpiece or anything, but being unfortunate enough to have seen most of these other movies and shows, I can tell you it is nowhere near as bad.

I would rewatch the scene. She is a far cry from being a master as her bending is extremely sloppy. she looks like one of those toddler ""blackbelts"" that McDojos hand out.

TLOU2 was shit.

I disagree on two levels.

Firstly, the next avatar in the cycle was supposed to be a waterbender, who are all Eskimo save for the swamp tribe. Her being born in the southern water tribe and not being brown would have stood out as inconsistent.

Secondly, "you gotta deal with it" was a great introductory line and immediately sets up her character arc. She starts off bold, brash, uncaring of others, and downright destructive. Her first escapade into the city literally leaves a wake of destruction worse than the damage the bad guys caused, and she gets called out on it by the adults in the room. While blue-haired whales were obsessed over this line for stronk womyn reasons, anyone who actually watched the show knows that Korra's rash behavior was not being glorified. over four seasons she learns respect, restraint, and dignity, and is a shadow of her former "you gotta deal with it" bratty self.

if you want to find good games, you're going to have to dig. the AAA market is all in on live service gambling, and the Indie market is saturated.

off topic, but I'm curious. how is one meant to pronounce CINO (which I presume stands for conservative in name only)?

is it "See-No" or "Kee-No", since the first letter in the acronym is for a word that has a hard c sound.

still looking for a link to the original document if possible. if it's internal then we'll never know, but if this exists on an official website somewhere it should solidify its authenticity.

it could be worse. it could be one of her performances from the days when she was contracted to distract from Obama's drone strikes.

interestingly, Google's Gemini seems to protect against this. either that, or they add the word "please" at the end of every request.

it depends on the time period and how old the union is. a fresh Union formed under a monopolized job market literally has to be legit, or else they will not get any members or any support.

an old Union working in a non-monopolized market is guaranteed to be money laundering.
