    Hey, i didn't make the game. I'm just questioning why they were fine being in the game for 15 years but all of a sudden bad after hiring a bunch of feminists and a couple lawsuits showing blizzard doesn't hold up to the standards they set

    Imagine blaming victims of sexual assault for something as meaningless as a few changed item names and NPC updates so you can sleep better at night.

    "hiring a bunch of feminists" sounds an awful like an admonishment of the people Blizzard hired to develop the game. Y'know, the people who are also mentioned in the lawsuit as being on the receiving end of sexual harassment. This crass generalization completely removes all agency from the human beings these people are... and why? So you can continue this frankly offensive line of thought that "woke points" are the only fucking thing Blizzard is chasing. It'd be cute if it wasn't pretty disgustingly dehumanizing.

    clearly you're not questioning things when you answer said questions, yourself, in the same post...

    yes, those useless feminist's with their undeserved self respect called out the company that made it a habit to ignore their qualifications to the point they felt they needed to sure Blizzard over it. how dare they....

    Again, calling out the company is fine. It promoting diversity and inclusion while doing those things is what i'm talking about. I swear you guys misconstrue things on purpose because its all white and black to you

    There is a fucking difference between censoring a drug that is frankly addictive and unhealthy to something that is simply innate to some human beings.

    Like seriously, if you're that far down a hole that you defend the chinese goverments stance on homosexuality, which by the way, is bordering damn close on a human rights violation, then you should rethink your stance.

    Go ahead and try to find a majority that wants to censor a cartoon for portraying a homosexual relationship.

    Would I be ok with males getting the 2-3 slutmogs extra to catch up with the females? you bet I would! Bring it on!
    I would love for human males to get a more attractive body type as well, they are slightly on the too built side for me.
    I'm in favor of adding choice, not removing it.
    There wasn't a fuss made when they added darker skin tones to the game, people like choice.

    Jesus fuck. How many times do I have to say the same thing? The point isn't that Blizzard "hired a bunch of feminists." They hired a bunch of human beings. The fact that you're dismissing the actions of these human beings as those of "feminists" despite the only evidence you have being that they removed a couple dick jokes from the game (without any further context whatsoever) tells me that you care very little about the actual reasons these changes are happening and just want to farm anti-SJW sentimentalism as a (yet another) hollow rebuke of Blizzard.

    doing what things? you mean removing "paintings of women with lots of cleavage" was the lynch pin in the "I can't look up porn on my mom's computer" community???

    The unmitigated irony of you saying this just opened a rift in the space-time continuum. I'm beginning to feel the atoms in my body reorganize while I'm typing this. I hope you're happy.

    And "feminist" is another word that the reactionaries got ahold of and turned into an insult/silencing tactic intended to reduce someone to a caricature.

    Eeeyup. There's been so much confession-via-accusation from the outrage brigade that it's unreal.

    You know ironically those same feminists dehumanize half the country. You also have no evidence that they weren't censored for that reason, but considering the landscape of modern western media where i believe my theory holds a lot more water than you want to admit. Which anyway, a couple of uncomfortable women don't mean much when most of us never cared, yes. If you don't like something, don't watch it.

    Fine; I'll bite. Who, exactly, are these alleged feminists of yours "dehumanizing," by any rational standard? (Note that if you resort to the long-debunked boilerplate answer that is "men," let's just say that my husband could probably use a laugh.)

    The lack of self awareness is so palpable i can build a rocket and fly to another galaxy with it

    Really don't get their priorities in the whitewashing of old lore with these new changes.

    Like removing the dialogue from the NPC in UC because she's mind controlling a human which is totally unacceptable but using living beings as test subjects for biological weapons is perfectly okay.

    Do you actually know what the word "reactionary" means, or was this that just another "I know you are, but what am I?" attempt? (I'll give you a hint: it does not mean someone who finds all of this performative outrage over a few removed lines alternately entertaining and tedious.)

    You are chastising somebody using a buzzword to reduce people to a caricature while doing that yourself. Like, lol.

    In other words: it was an "I know you are, but what am I?" attempt, set off by little-to-nothing more than the fact that you felt attacked. Gotcha.

    So...are you going to actually bring your A-game argument, or is that an example of your A-game? Because we're all beginning to suspect that it's the latter.
