But the point in which it becomes harassment is up to the person being harassed. There is nothing that says it's only harassment after 5 times, 10 times, whatever. If someone claims they are being harassed then there is no set number of times a person must have said the bad thing in order to be potentially fined in this regard. It's policing of language at that point, in which even a slip of the tongue can be costly. Ever have a slip of the tongue? I have. Happens all the time to people, in often times hilarious ways. Yet under this even a slip of the tongue could be one time too many and then you have a problem.If you repeatedly misgender someone to the point of harassment, then yes it should be treated as harassment.
In what way have I done this? I don't insult and I don't belittle. I ask questions, or I question some philosophy, but I do that for all sorts of things and isn't limited to trans people. Nor have I ever suggested they aren't people.You, for whatever reason, seem to be having trouble treating trans people the same as any other group of human beings...
What you are doing is projecting intent upon my comments in order to basically shut me up in that regard.
So the question becomes, if this is to even be considered, then what basis will this tribunal decided harassment occurred. Because if all it takes it someone feigning distress in the court room, then which way will they likely lean? Where is the rationality there?Yes, I read it. You can clearly see up there that a tribunal needs to conclude harassment and discrimination took place. And, a few sentences above: “The misuse of gender pronouns, without more, cannot rise to the level of a crime".
Either case I think the subject has crossed over too many extremes.
Bottom line for me in regards to the threads original topic. It's great that the devs have included these options and I don't think it is a reasonable response from the community in question to still talk shit about a game that bought a license from an author who has an opinion they don't like. If you choose not to support it, than fine, but that doesn't automatically make the game and the devs behind the game evil or prejudice in anyway.
