The mob violence defense reads to me awfully close to the "Antifa burned down buildings" kind of garbage that the right wingers looooove.

Buying or not buying Hogwarts Legacy, quite frankly, isn't going to make any difference whatsoever to Rowling or WB or anyone

It may not matter to her, but I'm sure trans people would probably appreciate a show of support.

Yeah, that feels pretty defeatist. Did anyone think the game wouldn't succeed because people boycotted it? No, absolutely not, even if every single person in the world explicitly knew about how vile JKR really is, it would still be successful, after all look how many bigots we've had in this thread already. It's not about "winning" though, it's about slowly chipping away at her power and popularity, and the success of this game just helps the brand and by extension JKR's influence remain.

Uh-oh, looks like someone shook the shithead tree and people are back for another round of "celebrate me for being transphobic, please!"

This hobby fucking sucks.

Unfortunately, as expected.

@brian_: Agreed, that's the bare minimum which a lot of people disappointingly don't even want to do that.

Instead of watching a 4-minute masterclass in calling someone "woke" without using the word "woke", I would suggest anyone take the time to actually listen to any trans person who might be feeling hurt on the matter.

People will go to any length to justify it. Honestly at this point i've seen far more people arguing about their justifications for playing the game then people actually calling them out on their shit.

In the end for people that plan to get it, play the game, pay the TERF troll tax, but stop whining when people call you out for it. At the end of the day your still gonna have your game and the world is just gonna get worse and worse for us, you "win".

So it hasn't really become any more clear and it's doubtful it will, if it does it probably won't be until well after the game is long since been out, but to be frank: the majority of gamers just don't give a shit. You'll get some questioning here and there but at the end of the day people are gonna buy it anyway, and in this case game pass gives it an even easier justification than usual.

This is just the Dave Chapelle "I had a trans friend" shit all over again. A small token of inclusivity means next to nothing in the face of the larger issues of this helping to line JKR's already seemingly limitless pockets, which will remain that way as long people support her, directly or indirectly. It's so wildly condescending and HAS acted as a shield from the actual problem.

The fact that there is a token trans character is a lazy ass hell cop-out.
