Good shit! These reforms were blatant powergrabs, at least some dems in DC have a conscious.

On a different note, Is this an acknowledgement of a woman doing something good by TheImpossible1!?

I don't have much hope for the sequel, I just know that the original was fun enough for me to play it all the way through. The woke parts like the hyper diversity actually get explained when the plot twist is revealed, which I thought was neat.

In the early scenes, they were gloves that belonged to Vander, a powerful freedom-fighter and essentially Vi's father figure. In the show, hextech didn't exist in their first encounter, so the gloves were essentially really heavy knuckledusters. Later in the show, after hextech is introduced, Vi scores a hextech gauntlet which turns her into the super fighter we know in the games.

Having done martial and weapon sports myself, I can tell you it doesn't take much with weapons to even the playing field against a stronger opponent. I've seen a normal-sized man KO armored fighters with a 1-foot club in ACL battles (armored combat league).

From early in the show, Vi is shown to be a seasoned fighter. A pair of heavy knuckledusters can definitely even the odds of a seasoned fighter against a larger and doped up opponent.

Arcane is a pretty "progressive" show with casual lesbianism, racial diversity, and stronk females. The difference between Arcane and other progressive shows, however, is that they play everything straight and give each character the respect they deserve. Every hero has faults to overcome, every villain has understandable motives, and nobody is perfect. Everyone is desperate to get what they want, but the script doesn't take anyone's side. Nothing comes across as preachy, and there will never be a point where the hero looks at the camera and proclaims trans rights. Combine that with solid animation and brilliant fight and action choreography, and I can safely put it on the shelf for woke shit I actually enjoyed, right next to Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Last I heard from mexico, they had prison towers overlooking the beaches so they can spot and arrest mask violations

probably an incremental rollout just like the initial updates, my dislike plug-ins still seems to be working even on brand new videos, but I doubt it will be working come January

Not organically. the technology for what meta offers is already here. everyone who wants to live in a pod and have all social interaction be virtual can do so.

See, this was how I was raised. Men are men and women are women, but it is not weird for interests or mannerisms to be masculine or feminine. I was raised to be comfortable with the abnormal, but this new generation is being taught to warp reality until the abnormal becomes normal, and that abnormality itself is bad.

by my understanding, it is a cultural norm to wear a mask if you feel ill, like if you have a common cold but you need to do some shopping. They do not assume everyone is sick until proven otherwise like they do now in the West.

I didn't even play the tutorial, I just used a bot match to get my bearings. The bots are really well done bte, felt like an actual MP match once I turned up the difficulty.

I can tell you the multiplayer is not very woke atm, the faces of each character are hidden anyway. The character creator does do that bullshit "body type" selection instead of gender selection, but that's pretty much it. I even had a game where we were all calling eachother faggots over voicechat and no repricussions.

That said, it is a live service game, so it's subject to change on a whim. Additionally, the character customization is greedy as fuck with microtransactions, all for a system that is LESS customizeable than Halo 3. The gunplay and map design is good enough to keep me coming back though.
