@mirado: I'm aware. That's one of the reasons I erred on the side of caution with the trigger warning, though that seems to have been problematic for some people. It's strange, I can't say I recall seeing people object to a trigger warning on material that didn't turn out to be triggering before.

Given the context of some of the #yesallwomen stories and the reports of rape and death threats being received by people who participated in that, I thought the issue might be more controversial than it ended up being.

Far as I've seen, giant bomb duders tend to have a good attitude overall. I can't recall seeing much trolling on the forums or in the guilds I've played with. Often the duders I've talked to have been more thoughtful about video games and the elements that go into making them.

Patrick and Alex brought up the idea that rape has become an expectation of a certain type of horror movie at this point, if I recall correctly. Or perhaps that was Horror Show Hot Dog, it's hard to keep track of all the podcasts I listen to these days.

I feel like the trigger warning stuff is another case of Americans catering to each others bullshit passive aggressive oversensitivity. It helps nothing but censor important conversation on the basis someone "might" be offended. The culture of this is rife in the USA and personally I think its the sort of thing that lends exactly to this "entitled" attitude displayed by the actual subject of this conversation.

I mean we can hypothesise all day, but if this guy was called out more often in his life instead of ignored due to people being so sensitive of each others feelings and never talking anything untoward, this probably would of never built to this conclusion.

As someone from a country where everyone calls everyone else out on bullshit all day, who has visited the USA multiple times with USA relatives, i'm not talking out of my ass here. This passive aggressive politeness/political correctness has a way of slowly strangling people to death.

How the hell is a trigger warning censorship? Do you actually know what trigger warnings are? Because one was used for this thread and everyone has been posting here just fine. Also I love that you basically blamed a mass shooting on political correctness, but nobody here will really care because thank goodness you didn't blame their ~precious video games~.

By the way, you actually are talking out of your ass.

@fredchuckdave: I'm an American and I'm very interested in it. I've been interested in it because I knew it was going to eventually be a flashpoint since I watched the break up of the Soviet Union in the eighties.

I just don't know what I, Joe Blow, sitting in the midwest, can do when my president is more worried about forcing me, a private citizen, to purchase health insurance and remaking the country in his own image than anything else. I could write my congressman, but I'm sure he won't do anything that is not allowed by the money men above him.

It's not a matter of Americans not caring, it's a matter of Americans living in a country that doesn't belong to them anymore, regardless of which worthless political party is in power.

@nyxfe: . 'Gay' originally meant happy, 'Queer' was originally short for 'gender queer' which preceded the term transgender. Yet they have been perverted by their use.

Is this as horrible as you made it sound?
