Using racism is very bad. If you do it, you are bad. Also using slurs directed at gay people are bad. If you do that as well, you are bad. In real life if you done this many people would be upset because it is bad. Likewise on the internet, it is bad. People may not be able to physically be with you and you may be hidden behind a computer screen but this isn't a Texas walker ranger badge to go around saying racism or anti-gay words. Or bad people words in general. Part of the reason people say these bad things isn't because they actually hate black people or gay people for being gay in nature but because they feel in a safe zone, free of any real repercussions. Even the threat of moderation is seen as trivial. With the internet hackers use new IP's to get back on internet websites.

Another problem is the nature of the gaming community I feel. It is almost always negative full of hipster nihilism. The young adults aspire to be like the 4chan. It is cool to mean. And weak to be good. In order to appear like a cool dude to other people on the internet, gamers typically hate everything and act like everything "sucks". By doing this they think they will be cool dudes. Any and everything sucks. And if you like something, then you must be attacked.

When you have a plant you give it water. Water helps a plant retain life. It is very good. When you give a plant too much water, it drowns. The people on gaming forums would probably like that idea and boast about killing the plant. Rather than cultivate a climate of respect and happiness. Gamers are very poor people I feel. It is partly why games aim so low. They know the target audience just want to shoot people in the face and shout profanity in call of duty.

A good example of this was the Call Of Duty "F" word advert. Activision know this word is commonly used in Call Of Duty rampantly full of hipster nihilism. Rather than stamp it out and be good, they want to cultivate it in order to appear "down with the kids".

Overall I feel in order to make the world a better place, parents need to be better. I feel most do a very poor job of raising children. Our vision of the world is formed as a child and if you strickly dictate what a child experiences they wont grow up to be racist or use the F word and generally be nice people.

That was umm.... A good read? I mean you've said things that are correct, so there's that, and that's a thing indeed. 
I wouldn't know about parenting, it's probably a much harder and more fucked up and confusing thing than you or I imagine, which is why I hope I'll never have to go through it, but yes, kids wanna be cool which means being bad which means repeating edgy offensive words. 
 
Also I would quote your first two lines and slam a Mr. Mackey picture under them but I feel the moderators are too on-edge to allow that kind of funny light-hearted spam right now.

Guys, racism is bad. Thought I'd reaffirm that. Oh, yeah, and homophobia too, I guess.

EDIT: Well, you know what this thread needs more of? Opportunistic nihilist music.

This is a very good example of opportunist hipster nihilism. The user makes a short blank statement specifically designed to lower the user while making some form of indication "they know" the real truth of the world to appear "cool" and "important". Not just to other people but to reassure themselfs. This is very bad I feel.

So is using racism bad or not you've gone and confused me!

Yep. Using racism is bad. Also everyone on these forums is a hipster nihilist. Total War is the greatest game ever made. Which one? All of them.

ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU SPEAK IT

also, if you strictly dictate what a child experiences, they very well may rebel against you and do the opposite of what you want.

and how is using profanity somehow equal to racism? how does that make sense?

Sooo you took three words you vaguely understand, threw them together and came up with what you thought was an intelligent label. Okay, gotcha.

#37 Posted by BiG_Weasel (524 posts) -

One thing to consider is that any sort of -ism (ie racism, sexism, etc) is the promotion of any one demographic above another. Consider organizations such as the NAACP and the United Negro College Fund. While their purpose is fairness, their very existence (never mind the "CP" stands for "Colored People", and the word "Negro" are both considered racist if used by any other race) is racist, as they promote their particular demographic above all others.

One thing that people of all races, creeds, religions, etc need to remember that what most everyone in the US (and indeed the world) wants is equal rights, but not equal responsibility. A prime example of this is Selective Service (aka "The Draft"). Women are not required by law to register for this, meaning one of two things: A) They're not capable, or B) They're more valuable than men. Either option is sexism.

The bit about "hipster nihilism" was pretty ludicrous, as is an internet nerd lecturing parents how to do their job, but this part I quoted, yeah, I don't think any sane, rational adult can disagree that racist & homophobic insults are not fucking cool.

Stop saying racism, guys. OP doesn't like that word. Not one bit.

#49 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

For someone who is telling me to stop hating so many things, you sure do hate racism and homophobia.
