My god do you not understand its not a point in every case? You can use that as a backout to any form of criticism if you kind declare one iota of disenfranchisement. Fine. You think its no better in the West, please go forth. You’r incapable of admitting there is a difference.
Wait. Can we take a minute to laugh at the “live pic of me slipping on black ice this morning” title?
You didn’t make a point. You made a fallacy. You wouldn’t need to make a fallacy if you had a point.
You tried to argue that America doesn’t have a problem with institutionalized homophobia because “middle east badder”.
No, I said remind yourself that while things aren’t perfect the are far better than in other parts of the world and don’t be so quick to get triggered at every little perceived “slight”. Worlds apart how in your bias you interpreted it. That is in no way “privation bias”. If you can’t make that distinction then you are as a I suspected merely biased and frankly wearing a chip on your shoulder if you can’t admit that. We are done here btw.
And now you are putting words into my mouth. The entire time I have been arguing that there being a difference doesn’t change the fact that America still has a problem.
This whole company pandering to gays for money thing is a big part of the whole “woke” meme that the right uses to ridicule gay rights.
Whatever point you tried to make earlier you are still the one that dismissed institutionalized homophobia in America by saying other places have it worse.
“But its not institutionalized - thats a fact too”
Straight up your own words in case you forgot.
Then point the finger at Activision, Blizzard is bought and owned.
And bow progressive are you? How many products from China do you own and use registry? You’re “moral outrage” is misdirected and worse yet, since you are likely benefitting from products that support the system in place, you actually don’t have any ground to stand on that gives you any moral authority in which to declare yourself more righteous than a company that has no choice in the matter of a comic book page getting changed.
Who cares? 20charssss
Oh boy this argument again. It is virtually impossible to get a computer that doesn’t have a significant amount of it made in China. I require a computer to be able to do my job. Even if I didn’t directly use a computer basically every job in America is going to have a computer involved somewhere down the line.
Despite all this I still go through any length I can to limit how much of my money goes into China’s hands.
My choice is benefit from computers or live below the poverty line and be unable to support myself or my family. Blizzard’s choice is bow to China or… make slightly less record profits. Not that that is working out too well for them with how much Blizzcon is shaping up to be an unmitigated disaster. I hope it was worth it for them.
so let me get this right. because Tracer doesn’t visit Emily it means that she’s straight? what kind of leap in logic is that?
just because someone’s preference isn’t stated doesn’t mean anything, all it means is that it’s left up to the fans playing to decide what they want it to be.
Also it has been shown in this thread that China got the Emily comic, with a link and pics
Yet more lies.
The linked thread proves this thread is just bait.
You are missing the point, Blizzard has as much choice in this as you do in finding a computer or virtually the majority products available to you made on state-owned slave labor that ultimately benefits a regime of military enforced might over its people.
Blizzard is owned by a another company that is making the decisions that affect their bottom line. That company - like the many companies around the world - has its finances directly connected with a company (actually several), from this same country empowered by its regime.
You want to blame Blizzard.
You’re pointing the finger at the wrong place.
You want to claim a moral high ground.
You actually have none.
The linked thread doesn’t prove anything. China does not in fact have a page explaining why there is no comic the same way they did for Russia, because that would make China look bad like how they did for Russia.
They just got rid of it and pretended it never happened.
Ah, hahahahahahahahahahahaha! Google “Trump SCOTUS LGBTQ”.
If you’re going to compare communist china’s government to the US, I’m sorry but we just don’t live in the same world
“It’s not as bad here, therefor it does not exist”
Only reason Soldier and Tracer are gay is because of marketing strategies. Watch another hero be made gay now after the massive backlash they have received lately.
Of course we live in the same world. I’m just paying attention.
This is all a big misunderstanding. Tracer didn’t know that Mei had a p3nis this whole time.
