This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Because now I see that you punk bitches are in the minority.  You're just louder than everyone else.

I'm used to that. The high school I went to was 80% black kids. It was fun being in the minority.

People who don't use RPGs as drama therapy are in the minority? Or did you mean people who aren't into extreme sadism and necrophelia in their games are in the minority?

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

Y'know... there is something insightful to be said about Walkerp's moral outrage over our lack of moral outrage over two apparently consenting emoticons doing something found in more or less mainstream film...of a sort... when contrasted with his lack of moral outrage over people broadcasting pedo-necro-sado murder/rape fantasies.

Hmm... I wonder what it could be...
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.

That moral outrage relativism is about as fucked up as a soup sandwich?

Or is it just homophobic racism since the acts were between two consenting adult emoticons?  Gay sex between humans is fine, but you've just got to keep those damn emoticons on the plantation!

I mean, "Good God, Man!"

I would find the act depicted in that emoticon objectionable regardless of the perceived sex of the smileys.  In fact, we don't know for certain what the sex of the receiving smiley is and I don't think it matters all that much.  It the smileys depict an act that would get a movie an NC-17 rating or a court to call it "obscene".

Of course not.  And I'm well aware of how his administration gutted the anti-obscenity enforcement at the Federal level leading to a large increase in brutal torture and humiliation pornography, which is why some pornographers were so enthusiastic in their support of him.  PBS Frontline did a pretty good overview of what happened and what changed.  You can watch it online and read related material here:

And I would appreciate it if the inevitable free speech enthusiast watched the program before blasting it.

I've seen it, and while you don't actually say it, you're implying that the pre-Clinton anti-obscenity enforcement went after "brutal torture and humiliation pornography".  However, the interview with Bruce Taylor that has a problem with the Clinton administration makes clear that he was prosecuting any pornography, and that's what he said was gutted.  

Quote
The department was very effective in toning down the kind of material you saw because they were indicting the big shots. Everybody else in the industry said, "If they can get to the boss, they can get to us." And we were prosecuting not the worst kind of pornography. When we found the torture and the bestiality and the sadomasochistic and excretory materials, that was indicted, too. But we also were indicting the main type of product, their regular hardcore heterosexual material. ... That put a damper on the industry's willingness to distribute -- at least openly -- the more extreme stuff.

I think the biggest message that was sent is, "This is a crime, and we can get to you. The federal grand juries will indict you, and the FBI and postal inspectors will do the investigations. They will do searches with judges' authorizations, take your records and make you pay your taxes, and they'll make you go to jail. So that put the fear of the law back into the industry until maybe 1994-1995, when the prosecutions pretty much stopped. ...
