Finkle Einhorn Renamed to Pip Quickwit
DesMephisto has noticed that Finkle Einhorn, the gnome that teleports you to Blackrock Caverns, has been renamed to Pip Quickwit. This name change extends outside the game into Hearthstone as well as in the tooltip for the Finkle's Lava Dredger item in game.

    That's comedic exaggeration at work if you ask me. Just like how a person suddenly lovestruck in real life doesn't actually have their jaw literally drop to the ground and their tongue roll out like a red carpet.

    And honestly, would you really give a lesbian woman shit over that? I personally doubt it.

    You make Patrick Stewart sad.
    That's why I put "almost". xD
    There are so few examples, and most of them are relatively recent.

Quite a contrast over there.

    They did my boy Finke dirty tho. That wasn't even a trans joke, just a crossdressing one.
    If they want to be upset about stupid shit let them. Do I get butt hurt every time I have to fill out a form that specifically asks me if I am Hispanic/Latin as if it should matter? Nope. Or when I pay for cable, and half my channels are in Spanish (I'm seriously not racists. Just an odd trend going on here I'm sure others have noticed). Kinda on this one. I'm basically only receiving half of what I am paying for, but has nothing to do with prejudice against a people. Do I care if a person is physically and genetically a man, but wants to portray themselves as a woman or vice versa? I could care less.

    In Ace Ventura, Sean Young (gorgeous btw), played a man, who changed his appearance to look like a woman to conceal his identity to get his revenge on the evil Dan Marino. Period. This change among many of the others are just instances of "PC" culture infringing on Amendment #1 rights with continued widespread censure.

    It's interesting you bring up companies hiring people to make sure LGBTQRSLMNOP people specifically don't get upset about a companies products. I guess I should thank them for causing goods and services for costing more. I guess it all doesn't really matter anyways. Being a middle class white guy I am already a villain regardless of what I say, think, or do.

    Funny that you accused me of being that "type of person" and now a bunch of others came to the conclusion that the really shitty person ended up being you.

    just stop being a bigot
    Nobody who has called me a bigot had a legitimate reason for it. They were just pulling the immature "I know you are but what am I?" tactic. And I DID give an example of people who were offended by the movie. It's talked about in the 1999 book "Reclaiming Genders".

    It's almost as if Blizzard has something to be forgiven... That would explain the doubling down on virtue signaling...

    And why it looks so phony.

    So why is it a problem to use the most effective disguise to keep himself from being found out and allow himself to continue his crime scene freely. Would it be a problem if he disguised himself as a white guy, instead? Or a black guy?

    and then the "reaction" to them being outed is definitely insensitive in current climate. Along with the insinuation that Finkle took full advantage of being "female" to sexually harass/manipulate the entire police force, it definitely has the men can't be raped vibe.
    That is such a huge leap of logic, dude. How did you even get to that conclusion? Is it because the men that Finkle kissed as Einhorn in the movie didn't press charges or react like they were "r-word"-ed by Finkle? It's a comedy movie, not a "Law & Oder: Special Victims Unit" episode. And their reaction? Completely believable, hyperbole for the sake of comedy aside.

    Yes, lets virtue signal by making a 15 year old game more pc, for people who probably havent even seen the movie dont even know who ace ventura even is much less finkle einhorn, so they dont get offended by a joke from a movie from(in most cases) before they were born, a joke i might add that is more anti gay than anti trans... pathetic

    also didnt trans mean trans-sexual back then?

    Treat everyone like a human being, ffs.
    The movie isn't even about transgender people. It's about a ex football player who had a mental breakdown over a missed kick that cost them the game. Who escapes from a mental hospital and assumes the identity of lost hiker who happens to be a female and then has surgery to assume her identity. At no point during the movie did the character make the claim that he/she felt that they were a female. IT literally had nothing to do with transgender people. Keeping in mind to qualify as a transgender individual you must be born as one biological sex and then claim to identify as the opposite. Again the character in the movie never at any points makes this claim. The football plater takes on this female identity to get revenge not because they are transgender. This whole claim that this is a dig at transgenders is fucking ridiculous. But hey I guess someone woke up and couldn't find something to be offended about so had to create a reason.

    Try it maybe it might sink in.

    Maybe if I put it in see Sam sit, first grader language it might help?

    Can people physically lose weight change hair or teeth even if they don't want to... yes.

    Can gay people have straight sex even if they don't want to .. yes.

    should either of them do it just to make others happy or not make fun of them.. no...

    Bigot is when you don't agree with my extremely contemporary social and political values on an online forum.

    Use Google and look up the Miriam Websters or Oxford English Dictionary definition.


    THOSE are the meaning of the word, not some hjijacked bullshit you decided is the actual meaning.

    You are prejudiced and intolerant of those who have differing views or opinions to yourself. You shout down and argue with those who have a differing view, rather than accepting and just acknowledging that may they are just as entitled to their view as you are to yours, even though you may not agree with it, and you refuse to accept they are entitled to it. You criticise and make sweeping assumptions based on spurious evidence, and then shout back when called out on it.


    Thus, you are a bigot.

    There ya go.



    End of fucking story
