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.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Democracy, meh? (538)

It's very important to separate fetishists from people suffering a genetic disorder.


Well you could be a harmless fetishist or have a genuine genetic disorder & be an evil totalitarian.  The only trans I've GM'd for IRL  I think was a harmless fetishist - he said at the end of the mini-campaign "I'll always remember my Labyrinth Lord!" :D

Nah, I'm sure you are full of shit.

America in general? It's a maybe. We got a lot of crazed liberals driving political agendas that wouldn't know compromise (or reality) if it jumped up and bit them on the ass. These same people have pushed an agenda to such extremes that the shooting of an elected official from the opposite party is cheered on by the liberal media and where the sitting president has had to be bothered by a false accusation for the past 10 months (although that may have bitten the liberal democrats in the ass as the witch hunt of an investigation starts to investigate one of its own).

You cannot say that we should "live and let live" as the narrative when for the past eight years the left's political opponents have been lambasted in the media and are now engaged in some acrimonious push back of that "accepted" narrative.

So yes Petunia, maybe.

LOL! :D Surely not, Brendan. Surely not.

Here goes...

I have an opinion on the Transgender issue (surprise!), but I am not a professional so its a layman's observation. I think its a disorder, but I can't speak to its exact nature. Like any disorder having it does not make you a bad person and does not remove your human rights. And like some disorders society should make some accommodation for your needs.


Yes, but from a Utilitarian perspective (which is my normal approach) you have to consider whether that accommodation may harm the one being accommodated, as well as others, and offset that against happiness gained. For instance, it's good that gender reassignment surgery seems to be becoming less common because it's increasingly recognised that it's often harmful to the one subject to it, or at least risks harm. Likewise the utilitarian balance for toilets may be different from changing rooms. The important thing is not to grant anyone absolute rights that always trump the interests of other people no matter how lopsided the balance.

Want to delve into some of your racial and genetic theories again?

I definitely think the terms get bandied about and the meaning waters down when that happens. But like I've said from early on, there are plenty of people who are using that as cover to wedge in racist ideology. And the word does fit some people.

Rincewind1 lives in a coffeeshop somewhere in Poland where he sends his diatribes across the internet when not telling anyone who looks his way that he is writing a novel. As such, his envy of the American people while hating the United States is well known here, but he has little actual knowledge of the USA that is factual.

Oh, and RuneQuest sucks. :D

You've masturbated while you wrote that, hadn't  you, you naughty, naughty boy.
Furthermore, I consider that  This is Why We Don't Like You thread should be closed

And you masturbate to pictures of Lenin and Trotsky, so I wouldn't judge if I were you.

As for me, I'm a proud Bernie Bro/Tammany Hall Union Democrat who loves anime and hates Marvel/DC capeshit. I believe both the Fascist Alt-Right and the Communist SJW's are a dire threat to American values and both sides must be stopped. The election of Donald Trump was a disaster for this country on so many levels.

I'm a foul-mouthed blue-collar Irish-American redneck from Dante, Virginia and I don't take no bullshit whether it be from Alt-Righters or SJW Commies. But I do believe in free speech, so I say you can spout all the Neo-Bolshevik rhetoric you want, and I can mock you and call you out on it all I want.

I drink straight Jameson and watch Sailor Moon, and I'm proud of my working-class Irish and Scots-Irish roots.
