    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Yep, that's Activision-Blizzard. And, really, any large corporation.

    Normally I'd be inclined to think it's coincidence as I'm a mostly liberal guy that doesn't particularly care for unions but fuck man. It's almost too perfect timing.

    IMO the people requiring representation have a problem. No one watches a movie with Denzel Washington or Samuel Jackson as the main actor and thinks "dang, if only the leading actor was white this would be a great movie." If they do, there is something wrong with them. It works the same the other way around. If you watch a movie and Tom Cruise is the leading actor and you think "I can't really relate to this because of his skin color, if he was black brown or yellow I could relate better" then something is wrong with you.

    I saw something on the news a few years ago about an app for your phone that helps you find a mall with a black Santa. A lady was commenting saying it made her feel better to be able to take her daughter to a black Santa because she could relate better. It blows my mind and doesn't make any sense to me. If I took my kid to a mall to see Santa and he happened to be black how would that matter? Different skin colors exist, it's part of life. This whole thing is people being assholes.

    So they're "avoiding tokenism" with a callous and cynical chart that tries formulate representation, which corporations can then use for shallow diversity quotas and queerbating... How is that not the pinnacle of tokenism right there? This feels like something written by The Onion.

    Also jesus, the amount of reactionary gAmeRs dancing on this article with bad hot takes and bad faith arguments is both hilarious and unsurprising. Yall have issues.

    No matter how much of a special snowflake someone thinks they are, being honest, they are just a metric.

    some people need an argument out of thin air in order to '' feel '' right. he / she / they / them / wtv didn't get what he / she / they / them / wtv wanted and vanished as expected.

    see ? joking while being right as hell is much more fun
    war does not determine who is right, only who is left.

    How people ACTUALLY want to be represented:

    "James Bond says goodbye (maybe with a 'love you') to husband who is watching tv"

    You know, like normal people?”

    Are you seriously putting “normal people” into the same statement with a person with a male name having a “husband”?..

    So the story here is “people online got big mad that a silly tool nobody is actually using got reported”?

    Whenever you see a "non mainstream" character now, you can be certain it's there because it *has* to be there, not because someone thought that it would be interesting, fit or simply because they wanted to design someone different.
    wile im sure saying this is the most disgusting thing is a huge exageration,i wonder how many - points i would get considering 2 of my favorite actors are joaquin phoenix and bob odenkirk

    So I see a lot of people not necessarily defending this, but calling out people for "overreacting " because we were told this was a tool no one uses.

    My question, if no one uses it why does it exist at all? Did they used to use it? Do they plan on using it in the future?

    And why wouldn't you be upset at this? Are people ok seeing the things that make them unique and different and diverse just boxes to check off on a list? I can understand wanting to see representation and being able to relate with a character, but guess what. Just because someone is a straight white Male doesn't mean they can relate to every other straight white Male
    The greater the light, the darker the shadow. And this light casts a shadow over all I see - the Prophet Velen, when asked what's next for Blizzard

    What the hell.

    You can't remove stereotypes from the human mind. You can only learn and teach others to not take them too seriously.
    Stereotypes can also be fun, but alas these youngsters no longer have a sense of humor.
    Poor world.
    Best example of just having fun with stereotypes I have EVER seen is G Gundam..which would probably be considered racist asf today despite just being batshit crazy

    this is perfectly in line with the nefarious woke ideology that has already infiltrated blizzard since years back. this WILL come eventually, shortly before blizzard goes bankrupt. go woke get broke. ALL problems within blizzard atm has its origin in the woke activists stirring up drama and shit for ideological reasons. it a pity that a institution as grand as blizzard will fall, but not even them are immune to the subversion of woke ideology.
