    Joking is normal human behaviour. These lines are jokes. That's the point. It's funny coz they're kinda lame. But context has no meaning anymore.

    Of course someone actually using these 'flirting' lines in an actual serious setting is just going to be rejected for being an idiot.


    I'm actually amazed at this point that Pandaren haven't been removed for stereotypical depictions of Chinese culture. And Trolls, how on earth have they survived the Great Purge??

    This is where are at now. I feel utterly embarrassed. Pathetic

    I wasnt aware, people were offended by something so baselined, and also, please, lotting in humor with the cubical crawlers is like comparing Xi Ping to China, you have to seperate the stupid people from the majority somewhere or your just painting everyone with the same brush.

    Otherwise if thats your perogative then you really are a lost cause.

    And what is even wrong with /Flirt anyway? Let me ask you sincerely, try to explain to me exactly 'what' you can nitpick out of a thousand tiny nothings that actually makes it so bad?
    Yeah right.
    We have great new jokes that will make pxople laugh like crazy without having to be icky sticky and punch down at the oppressed. Like this one:

    Two gender undetermined persxns of color enter a pro-feminist, pro-socialist intersectional poetry writing class. Thxy both perform jazz hands because applause can be triggering and everyone had a nice night being quiet and saying nothing that could be construed as disagreement or criticism because those can historically lead to negative and harmful experiences.

    See? That was great. We don't need any of that abusive "comedy" made by white men.

    The saddest part is this... somehow people think this is good, when they only paid a $18 million settlement to the affected victims, in a company that owns billions in value.

    They literally settled their first wave of abuse claims for fuck nothing and people think THIS is the solution?

    The people making these changes are humourless censorious puritans. And they think they're so liberal and progressive.

    Okay, the flirts I understand their reasoning, even though I don't agree with it. But the jokes? What's offensive with "I give myself a Dutch oven pedicure every night. I've got no foot fungus at all. My toes are pristine."? Or ""One time I laughed so hard I milked all over the floor." (this one is great btw)?

    Probably the same people that would heavily criticize former religious puritans' censorious bullshit. Only thing that changed was a new religion.

    I'm assuming you probably realise that I don't care if they remove these jokes or keep them. They're just random bits in the game.

    It still won't fix the bigger issue that the game itself is a little shit, and has been since like 2017.

    False.

    Poetry writing is an example of a cis-white male colonizer heteronormative orthodoxy white supremacy. And a class implies that there is some form of hierarchy, which is just a substitute for power

    This would instantly be removed, and the 12 devs pushing for the purge would gloat about it on Twitter

    No chance in hell they will replace them or hire VA. Not a chance in hell they will spend money on that

    Pandaren Male:

    "Hey gorgeous. Wanna try crane position? Oh no... For you, monkey style."
    "Nice pants. What's the drop rate?"
    "Yeah, I would tap dat keg."
    "Hey, hot stuff. Want to try breeding in captivity?"
    Awww...this sound pretty funny though

    If you apply that logic, you might as well remove all /flirt emotes.

    Unless you're the kind of person that says stuff like
    I know every rose has its thorn, but if you would just pour some sugar on me, we could rock and roll all night and par-tay every day.
    Because that /flirt is still in.
    Like seriously, read through the sheet linked in the OP and tell me whether only the removed ones are something you wouldn't say in real life.

    Not with any degree of frequency that I would describe it as "normal human behaviour"

    Though that would be abnormal behaviour if you ask me. It's even ingrained in most comedy movies or shows. Sexual jokes/innuendos are normal.
    And not long ago it was jokes about people being gay or trans that was in all comedy movies or shows. And if you go back further, it was race. Times change, attitudes change.

    Context has meaning, but context is always changing. The context now is that a company with a culture of grossly inappropriate sexual misconduct has a game with jokes like Hey, hot stuff. Want to try breeding in captivity? and I must be asleep, 'cause you are a dream come true. Also, I'm slightly damp. in it. That maybe jokes about bondage sex and wet dreams aren't great in the current context.

    In a world where you want WoW to be more Age of Conan they instead go the direction of Teletubbies.

    I'm wondering if any of the remaining /flirt reference genitals or sex acts.

    They're clearly targeting their largest playerbase, the non-binary emotionless bots.
