Sorry, I see that my first question has already been answered in detail. It's times like this I wish I'd taken the time to learn to read.

I don't really have anything to add other than man, I really wish that people who play multiplayer games would get another metaphor. So sick of winning a game of World of Tanks and seeing some moron saying "gang rape" over and over in the chat window

it's like, geez, stop being twelve

This doesn't have anything to do with any topic at hand, but the word "twelve" reminds me of it. In tech school, our class would often run in formation with cadence. Our class NCO, let's call him Barry, had these super annoying songs along the lines of, "I wish all the ladies / were pies on the shelf / and I was the baker / I'd eat 'em all myself."

One day I'm calling cadence. I usually made up stupid ones on the spot, (or had you guys to write them for me), but this one I'd planned. That's how annoyed I was. I'd been up all night thinking about Barry's "all the ladies" songs, just going "errrgh", scribbling notes furiously. So I call, "I wish all the ladies / were pies on the shelf / and I was Barry / I'd kill myself / These songs are funny / maybe if you're twelve."

He didn't call them as often after that. I won a victory for comedy.

So I guess Wong now has to ban everyone involved in writing the article, right? Since as he's said, rape culture isn't a real thing and talking about it is banworthy?

No see, it was about video games. The comedy world was untouched so it's okay to exist there. If someone is making a joke you should just laugh at it instead of being critical because god forbid if jokes are criticized.

And to be totally clear here, this was a bannable post



This is how Wong feels about rape culture

Quote
Come on, guys, let's not get sucked into this tumblr "invent shit to get offended by" bullshit. There are real problems in the world.

EDIT: If you use real rape victims as a club to bash web comics or comedians you don't like, YOU are the asshole. Go donate to a women's shelter, or do something else that will actually have an impact. Using rape as a tool to win petty internet arguments is evil.

This is cracked's latest article

Quote
Rape culture" is the normalization of sexual violence against women, treating it like something that just happens and blaming or shaming the victims. You see it in the news: If you can replace "rape" with "rain" and the story still works, that's rape culture. Was the woman wearing too little? Out too late? Would she have been fine if she'd stayed at home reading a nice book on etiquette for ladies? When a story focuses on anything the victim was doing (look for words like "party girl") instead of how the rapist was raping, that's rape culture. If victims truly justified crimes against them based on where they were, what they were wearing, and what they were showing off, the entire country would...

Quote from: David Wong
From now on, accusing members of promoting "rape culture" will get you banned. That's such a ridiculous bullshit thing to say. You know it's bullshit, we know it's bullshit, and you're using other women getting raped as a cheap debate tool to shut up anyone who insults a woman.

I'm sure somewhere there's a forum full of people amazingly stupid enough to fall for that bullshit, but thankfully it isn't this one.

Watch the video. The audience stopped his story multiple times to roar with laughter. He was playing up the story to make himself sound like a creepy loser ("She turned out to be stronger than me").

    He's like the walking embodiment of rape culture


Come on, don't get silly. If there is such a thing as a "rape culture" (in which case I guess we also have a murder culture, and a theft culture, and a burglary culture, and a fraud culture) I don't think it involves guys getting pinned down by stronger women who then have sex with them. Going to the opposite crazy extreme doesn't do anybody any good. Overreacting to the small stuff makes people not listen when the big stuff comes along.

Don't be silly, Betty. Unless it's about rape.

the only reason the rape stuff entered into it is because the guys on the stage were playing it up for the comedy angle,

Because seriously fuck that ego driven thought.

I like that even in his own analogy, people only get hurt because Wong is too much of a lazy asshole to clean the broken glass out of his yard and make it safe for other people.  "Fix the problem?  Screw that -- blame the victim!"

I know his name is synonymous with level-headedness and honesty, but for anyone who missed it at the time this surprisingly never happened! I actually made a point that a lot of the posters there seemed way too focused on putting down victims of police brutality because they weren’t likeable enough, they fussed too much afterwards, they could have possibly been dangerous (even though they weren’t), and other non-points in stark contrast to the continued apologia every cop in that thread was receiving. I then implied the direction of the discussion could stem from some of the same social mechanics in place that helped contribute to rape culture.

Because I used that taboo phrase and voiced an opinion pretty vehemently opposed to Dave’s earlier assertion that every police brutality story ever has been taken out of context, he reinterpreted my argument as a radicalized non sequitur he could dismiss while maintaining the thread's illusion that only self-important wackos get uncomfortable when innocent people are clubbed or pepper sprayed or tasered or shot unprovoked.

After reading this and having a gander at the comments I've decided that there is definitively no hope for the human race. Anyone want to help me build a doomsday device?
