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.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with racial liberation, queer liberation, and intersectional feminism.

OK, then.

Now tell us how Thirsty Sword Lesbians helps to positively bring about a world where these issues are not a problem. See, if you can't, then this game is just using those talking points to make sales and not make change you want to see.
Well you are putting too much into this. Thirsty Sword Lesbians is just a game made by people who enjoy it. It doesn't need to be anything more than that. Let people who want to have fun playing this game play it. Why in the world do you care?

I know that you are just here to troll.

But I'll share a secret with you. It never ends with, "Live and let live". It just keeps on going until that which does not conform to their ideology is silenced. You can tell by the language used in the game Kickstarter that this game is not meant to be a commercial success or a tool to help create safe spaces for gamers to play in, it is a propaganda weapon used to try and fleece the gullible of their money by antagonizing the dull-witted into reacting how they wish. The tactic has been used before and gets old very quick and most of the people on this forum are really tired of it.

Took a peek and it reminds me of indie comics from the 90s I would pass up since I wasn't the target demographic. Even if I was the target demographic for this product, it would be too ham fisted for my tastes. Filing this book in the forgotten rpg folder.

As others have pointed out your here to do nothing but troll. How come your not speaking out at how unfairly Rpg.net is banning people for having a difference of opinion and for calling out heavy handed truly Fascist moderation in this thread: https://www.therpgsite.com/the-rpgpundit-s-own-forum/rpg-net-user-points-out-irony-of-mods-not-wanting-to-ban-people-gets-banned/

You won't though because it cause against your carefully constructed personal narrative that this place is full of alt-reich Fascists. As well as being a chicken-shit coward scared to be banned by Rpg.net.

Agreed and seconded.

Now we get to see if he truly stands by his beliefs or simply stands by the narrative. I posted a link about rpg.net and heavily handed by his definition fascist moderation. We will see if he stays silent or evades the issue. I expect the goalposts to be moved and the silence to be deafening..

Oh look another GO GO SJW Ranger

If your going to call me out as a Fascist when someone else behaves worse than I do and do nothing then your a fucking hypocrite.

Then again you also stayed silent on the issue because like Fixable it's all about the carefully constructed personal narratives. Since NOTHING
 can go against said narratives it is to be summarily ignored.

Like Fixable your here to just troll and I am feeding and giving to much attention to a Troll. Why respond to such a stupidly transparent pathetic attempt at trolling.

Do yourself a favor and ignore the Troll it is better that way.

It's an attempt at censorship. The rpg is perfect because of reasons and feels so you and I need to shut the hell up and just accept it's perfection.

One thing no one seems to mention...

The "thirsty" line is a derogatory hatefull little feminist tag aimed at... men. I have never seen it aimed at women.

So what does this say about the "message" of the game? Especially since the illustrations look quite often more like men in drag or trans men? Something about this just feels really...wrong?

Ive seen it used for women a lot actually...but it does just mean horny so its still a bit derogatory.

Keep on ranting, shitstain, you crazy little bitch.

For what it's worth, I consider RPGnet to be totally full of shit and moderated to a crazy-ass level, so I don't know why you'd think I'm in favor of that.

What I do call out here are assholes like you. So that's my "narrative" you sad little fuckwit.

Hey asshole, telling others to ignore others isn't technically censorship, but it's in the same realm of shitty behavior. Anyone can ignore anyone they like based on their own choices, but if you can't let them make that choice without adding in your two cents, then you're in the same category as those you condemn.

And no, I'm not suggesting that others should ignore you either (but if they want to, I totally understand).

Well, that is what I'm talking about.

Here, compare the advertising for TSL to another game which created a safe space for SJWs, Blue Rose. The wording for Blue Rose was inoffensive and not antagonistic, it was written as an invitation to play the game. The wording for TSL reads like a agitator looking for a fight, deliberately provocative and antagonistic.

I don't get the feeling that TSL is trying to appeal to gamers, but activists.

Blue Rose wax not my cup of tea as an RPGs yet neither would I tell someone to not play it either. Then again it’s like Woke and SJW comic writers telling the fans to both go to hell and not read their comics. Then wonder why the comic industry is close to collapsing. Then blame it on the toxic fans. If  Evil Hat wants to come out swinging then don’t be surprised if they get kicked in the nads by some in the hobby
