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.

Damn, I'm out of the loop. What did Depp do/who accused him of doing what?

Short version, after Amber Heard (his wife) accused Depp of abusing her, she has been accused of being abusive towards Depp.

My money is on Tang siding with Amber, because vagina trumps penis.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Ok, is this place managing to get weirder? Its becoming my primary Lurk for LOLz site*. Do they just sit around think 'enlightened' thoughts all day?

Quote

How many female game characters and female literature characters and female comics characters are there in this world?



Anyone care to Guess?


Quote

More than four, I can tell you that.


Quote

Too many to count but still disproportionately few compared to men, and even less if you count those that have any agency or inner life.


* That's sort of a half truth there are some threads there I'd gladly participate in but it would likely result in my account's almost immediate ban; and that asylum that think its a gated community is too rich a vein of comedy and WTFs to give up just yet. I find myself with more time to spend inside lately. :D

Quote from: Trond;1125401
Johnny Depp was first accused of domestic violence by the media/mob, because his ex Amber Heard, after the breakup, took to media talking about how women should "speak up about abuse" etc etc. He almost certainly lost some film jobs because of this. Then, one tape recording after another, plus witnesses, are now indicating that SHE was the abuser, and she's lying about the abuse. She basically admits it in a recording. She seems to be extremely manipulative, but then nothing is settled yet. He is now suing her for defamation.


Hmph, I curious about the Tang reaction too. Will they "BELIEVE THE DUDE!"?

Quote from: Ghostmaker;1125381
Well well, if it isn't the huckster brother duo the Krassensteins! I was wondering where they'd wandered off to after getting kicked off Twitter.


Quote from: Ghostmaker;1125400
Sockpuppeting (operating multiple accounts) and purchasing account interactions (which means they were boosting their signal with SE Asia server farms).


Damn, would you consider the rebuttal full of crap then or that it may be accurate but should be taken with a grain (or more) of salt?

Female characters and female authors are overly dominant in the mystery and romance genres, which are top selling book and TV genres. RPG.net should fight that lack of equity.

I've read through the thread and.....wow...just wow. Worst. Idea. EVER.
It's as if these weirdos think that ANY idea that pops into little craniums is a good idea.
No. Just because it's "original" doesn't mean it's good.
Also just because you're "unique" doesn't mean you're useful.
RPG.net: useless and bad.

RPG.net tangency doesn't simply have SJW-leanings. It's a radical feminist forum. I'm sure they'd be happy to admit that at this point.

Not sure if I missed it, but I'd also be interested in what they have to say about Johnny Depp's case.


Well????
Anyone wants to report on what RPG.net says about this??
The way Amber KNOWS how the system is actually stacked against men (but then what happens when the man catches her saying this on tape?) Calling the story "juicy" is an understatement :D. Man, after I heard rumors that Amber Heard may have pooped on Depp's bed out of spite....
Or are they avoiding the whole topic like the plague?

Greetings!

I think Amber Heard is fucking nuts, and likely a scheming, greedy, poisonous snake. There are many, many women out there that are like this. Utterly self-interested, solipsistic, narcissistic, greedy, entitled and vengeful. You see the sweeter side of women when they divorce you. *laughing*

The last I saw it discussed was in late March and things were leaning more Depp being the abusive injured party. Then the the Biden story distracted things and Mod finger wagging post seemed to unofficially shut down the thread, for the most part as the couldn't talk about the latest Accusation That Must Be Believed*.

Thanks! I think most people know to stay away from stories that don't fit the official feminist narrative. I remember that any such argument was met with "what about the men" "concern trolling" and bans.

Absolutely and more besides, there is definitely an agenda in that odd little asylum that thinks its a gated community. The Moderation is like some combination of nannies, guards and self appointed counselors with the benefit of being effectively unquestionable, accountable to no one (well to one person who appears to be large absent and complicit) and self selecting. Tang (well the whole board) is like a fucked up recreation of the Stanford Prison experiment and an Animal Farm LARP except the people in it largely seem to love it.

 The usual response to Mod BS is "Thank you, sir, may I have another?" Even a self proclaimed Far-Left/Neo Communist power to the people type seems more than happy to be walked on by what amounts to unpaid glorified Internet Janitors that desperately want to be corrupt cops just to have the 'safety' Tangency offers him.

And all is for "The Greater Good", of course.

All sites have their issues. Hell, this site has its issues, but that place  has really gone nuts. Intellectual Inbreeding, I guess.

Don't forget "Thread Crap" Yeah, the made up terminology that means whatever they need it to mean at the time to punish and purge the "bad fits" from their number as part of whatever bizarre social engineering project they're trying to perform. The Militant Ultra Feminist aspect of their sculpted board culture really reared its head during a thread where posters were putting up sections of S.C..U.M manifesto and when some members complained they were answered with those old chestnuts "Can't you take a joke" and "Don't suppress their rightful anger" that, if the situation had been revered,  would earned perma-bans and numerous collective freak outs that could be seen from the moon.

The Joe Biden sexual assault allegation have finally made an appearance in the big time media, and evidently Ms. Reade filed a police report thought the statute of limitation has elapsed.
