People can say "lets have a discussion" all they want but if a person has to frame their speech in such a way that if they don't, they won't even get listened to then quite frankly that isn't a discussion, that is one side controlling the narrative. Appending a "however" doesn't take away from the fact that the person was harassed and doesn't make your non consent disappear in a puff of smoke, if a situation happened that requires investigation then you need to pursue it no matter what happened or what was said. You don't get immunity from investigation because something horrific did or might have happened to you, I'm sorry if that comes off as insensitive but facts will always trump feelings when it comes to serious issues like these.aegix drakan said:Good video. Bayonetta has always been an interesting character for me, (even though I haven't played the games yet) because of how she's so over the top. So much so that really, it feels like she's mocking the kinds of people who wanna use her for fapping material. It's like she's going "Oh, you think this is hot, do you? Well, guess what, you wouldn't stand a chance with me, kiddo. I'll make you insecure that you wouldn't stand a ghost of a chance with any woman as badass as me."
In any case, I'm here mostly for the comments that totally miss the point.
Eh? Didn't Jim actually say discussion of Bayonetta was GOOD and we should be having it? Or did you watch a totally different video than me?Coreless said:Love the progressive mentality when it comes to twisting narratives, now you aren't even aloud to speak your mind anymore because now you have to frame any conversation in a way they demand or they won't even listen to you lol. So much for freedom of speech and due process because if they can cut you off before you speak or are even get a chance to defend yourself then they win by default.
Or are you referring to that he said at the beginning of the video?
If so, in WHAT scenario is it appropriate to say "I wholeheartedly condemn death threats against group X, However 'Argument'"? I mean, aside from "I wholeheartedly condemn death threats, however if you're a fascist dictator committing genocide and having kids send to the firing squad for your amusement, you really have to expect that kind of thing because you are an irredeemable monster"?
Seriously. In WHAT situation is it appropriate and productive to threaten to kill someone who isn't outright threatening to literally kill YOU?
There's a difference between the "must speak in exactly progressive tone and not have contrary opinion or be considered idiot beep boop" thing you're suggesting and the "Yeah, I'll use common sense and not be a massive douche" reality of arguments. Appending a "however" argument to just about any instance of "I condemn death threats" is a violation of the second one, not the first.
Captcha: "Have an Inkling" Yes, you really should.
Captcha: "if you want to be condescending just do it, no need to make up catchas", yes I concur [/quote]
