"All in favor of the 'we don't like racism' resolution?"

"Uhh... It's got earmarked in it a million-dollar raise for you, specifically, in fine print at the end."

"THAT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE YOU'RE AGAINST RACISM, RACIST!"

Or it's a racial hate crime.

When the perp yells "This is a racial hate crime I am committing right now! I am killing this person because their skin color does not match mine, and that makes me murderous!" you and every lefty news org puts their thumbs up their asses and says "woah, motives unclear. Motives totally unclear. Maybe it was financial? Oh, or professional disagreement, that is possible too."

Meanwhile, in the background, the perp continues to yell "Cracka had white skin, dat means I get to kill 'im cause he different skin tone to me!"

And you just murmur "it's a mystery for the ages. We may never know..."

vtuber thots... Well, if they help raise awareness for the hatchet-job done to these things, then they can be my oshi. Oishi? Oushi? Whatever the spelling is.

Sure you could. You'd just need to change up the plot of the show.

Portray the women as horrific thugs. Because face it, even if black, they have to be REALLY shitty to manage to get into prison for long-term incarceration if they're women. Statistics back that one up solidly. They've gotta be puppy-torturers-on-steroids.

So you get your MC who is hunting down the woman who tortured her son to death on film, purposefully gets arrested, purposefully ruins her court case to get sent to prison, and is seeking out her revenge, but the Big Bad Evil Bitch is the leader of a major prison gang, and so the fish-out-of-water story is this not-evil person trying to fit in and buy clout with other prison gangs and shore up her resources and power to take her perfect revenge.

Done, minority female protag with a story focusing on other black female prisoners. And it'd sell, if well-acted.

Eternal September began while you were still wet behind the ears. Still, it was tolerable. The real collapse was the big bang... theory. Seriously, the downfall of intellectual and/or nerdy hobbies ties directly with that show's rise in fame. Could be a coincidence of timing, but it seems clear that hiring a bunch of professional male models (fun fact, that) to portray "omg I'm so nerdy" as a popular and cool thing led to an influx into the hobby-types.

And that hobby-type gatekept things like the internet, which lets them spread their message wide, and also disability spheres, which are prime predation ground for the wokists.

Ghost Stories is worth a watch in dub form.

It isn't worth a watch. But it IS worth a watch with the dub. Which doesn't make sense, but it's true. Just make sure it's the original dub, they remade it later on with an awful updated for modern audiences dub.

Unless they're voiced by Vic, you can probably safely assume they're racists or rapists. Or both. Or would be, if they had the opportunity to, according to the ideology they espouse.

Still better than modern games, where you'll pay $50 for 10 gacha pulls, not even a story extension.

Those types of presentations were mandatory back when I went to undergrad, but I kinda just never went and played video games instead, and they never followed up on it, so I couldn't tell you what was said in them.

No, no, no, that's xenoist!

It's "People of Baguetteness" now. It's highly offensive to call people of baguetteness "baguette people".

The Right: "She's Chinese! Say it!"

The Left: "That's racist! All those asians look the same and act the same!"

Velma's original character design doc was "intelligent nerdy awkward bookish type, occasionally paired with Shaggy".

Velma's remake design is "Ain' gat personality 'cept 'm black yo cause black is a personality, but don't go stereotyping black just cause of that."

They get to go "I have a racist black friend, see, I'm on your side BLM, I help people who actively hate me! Don't break my windows!"

That stated, if you lived there in that time and were affluent in some minor way, you better bet your otherwise-gulag-going-ass that you were expected to make lavish and deep-cutting (or at least looking like deep-cutting) donations to The Party in order to keep in their good graces and not branded a hoarder, "like those undesirables".

Obviously by this measure The Mafia is socialist, which is clearly not true, but they definitely used the flow of "the government is Of The People, if you have wealth that The People don't then you must be evil, so you must give more to The People, by which we mean us in the government" as a bullying stick.

We might not have autonomous cargo planes, but we do have drone-piloted goal posts it seems! They move on their own!

3rd-person shooter with very heavy stealth elements that likes melee quiet takedowns, but that as an option every so often you can go full rambo, but it is discouraged. That loves long cinematics that don't go anywhere. So very much like Metal Gear Solid, just with a setting that's post-apoc zombies instead of semi-cyberpunk-modern.

Has a bare-bones crafting system and exploration system, but it is very bare-bones, likely an afterthought by one of the devs.

Decent enough game (the first one), but it is so pretentious at times that it is best played with a friend and riffed on while playing.

And not a good movie-that's-a-game like Metal Gear.

Confirmation bias is a hell of a drug.

Animation was always bad. Just like art was always bad, and music was always bad, and food trends were always bad.

Only the good stuff (or the TRULY awful, good in its own way) gets remembered. There's a natural filtration system. No one is going to reminisce on "Cadillacs And Dinosaurs" or "The Smoggies", because they really weren't all that amazing.

In that manner, comparing the present to the past in inherently unfair, because comparing to the past has the power of actually being in your memory, of actually having an impact, compared to what you're picking from the present.

one thing I wonder is why specifically every gay character has to be a woman. If you look up "lgbtq cartoon characters", I'm certain at least half of them will be lesbian or bisexual women.

...50% of them will be women? Well, hate to break it to you, but there's only two sexes. In an equal random distribution, it should be 50-50.

Does anime fare better?

Art has generally significantly declined in the same manner as the west: Only the good stuff is remembered. As for gay characters, anime has had them for the longest time. Haruhi Suzumiya regularly sexually assaulted the women in her club for her own pleasure, and she's hardly the only female character to get a-fondling when the boobs present themselves. And for males, Cardcaptor Sakura had the two guardian guys, magical girl series in general tend to have "non-threatening" males, which for young female audiences, means ones with no sexual behaviors towards them, so you see gay men a lot in Mahou Shoujo.

G/T tends to be background characters, while L/B could be either/or. Most L tends to be fanservice excuses and actually just B, though. IE the Haruhi example above, she loves stripping and assaulting the poor maid, but it's obvious she still has a standard romantic pairing with Kyon.

My sleep paralysis demon is a beautiful young woman, leaning over the bedside, whispering "if you move, you'll startle yourself and wake up. But I'm just a dream, that will kill me, don't let me die, please. Just stay still..."

Enchanted Arms August 29, 2006. And arguably that's more of a From Software than an Ubisoft game.

Could have sworn I've bought things more recently from them, but looking at it, no... Weird.

Ironically, "Uwu colonizer-sempai let me sleep with you!" is actually a bit closer to historical account than how they present the metaphor of historical colonialism in the Avatar movies.

...Have you ever actually cooked an egg before?

Just asking, because the cream eggs have white as a dominant color, while there is basically no white inside a raw egg. Only cooked eggs have whites.
