Lolita Style, The Best Style!
- Jan 12, 2010
Well to your original point: I have no clue what they were thinking in hiring the guy, after stating they want to be apolitical. I mean do you know if he has any gaming and geek culture chops at all?NinjaDeathSlap said:Well, first off, 'digging' implies that I even had to look very hard.Cecilo said:I will only say this to you lot, the whole lot of you, look exactly like Gamergaters when it first started, digging through people's twitter feed to find something incriminating, accusing them of things. The only difference is, you feel you are morally correct and therefore have no shame in doing so, you feel you are correct so what does it matter if you go down to your oppositions level, hey I'm right, they are wrong fuck em.
If I had any doubts that you are the new moral panic like that of the Christians in the 90s it was erased when there was a Crusade to get that Mozilla founder to step down, it's nice to see you all following the trend though. Have fun being the man you used to fight against.
As others have said, I don't think denying trans-people the right to their own identities under the juvenile guise of 'Ain't no Liberal Correctness gonna tell this lone soldier what to do!' is on another level to the complete non-starters that, somehow, got GamerGate started.
Finally, for the umpteenth and last time, I am not calling for this guy to be fired before his work has even begun. I don't actually see anyone in this thread doing that. I see people rightly indignant at the things he's said, promising to no longer financially support the site if this is going to mean such sentiment will be supported by the site. However, if somebody were to actually call on him to be fired at this point, I would disagree with them. If he does something that shames the site, on the site, then he should be fired. Until then, I won't suggest it, I will simply question, as I have been doing, how the logic of hiring him matches up with statement previously made by higher-ups about their new 'apolitical' direction.
He quotes Carlin to support his viewpoint? Carlin?!Skatologist said:On something I found from Mr. Morse- He had written this and it is safe to say, he seems to be one of the many people who loathe "political correctness" along with speaking of Saul Alinsky, the Frankfurt School, and many other talking points from social conservatives I find and it is safe for me to say I am in complete opposition to this viewpoint of Mr. Morse.
I can't imagine George Carlin having anything other than fucking disdain for this guy. That quote was in fact Carlin accusing the term 'Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder', of sheltering people from the true horrors of war, and this guy is trying to use it to say how it's perfectly okay for him to call trans-people delusional?
I fucking despair...
