Federal Bill Would Criminalize Revenge Porn Websites

Fwipp Uh (328 comments)

Uh, yeah, there's a big difference between people of a group reclaiming a word, and other people using the word to shit on them.

OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights

Fwipp Re: Says (1482 comments)

This is a valid point. Trans/non-binary support is sadly still very rare online. However, I kinda doubt you care all that much, as you call us "transgenders" and "transgendered" (and seem to believe trans ladies and trans dudes are interchangeable?).

OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights

Fwipp Re: Irony (1482 comments)

I don't hate Eich.

I think there's a big difference between discriminating against gay people, and people who actively campaign to make other people's lives worse.

This false equivalency "omg why don't you tolerate my intolerance" doesn't actually make ANY sense if you have anything beyond a dictionary-level understanding of the words. Tolerance doesn't mean "Don't be mean to the schoolyard bully." It means "Don't be the schoolyard bully."

OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights

Fwipp Re: Anon (1482 comments)

The fact that he hasn't issued an apology makes forgiving him a little more difficult. (Yes, he offered a statement that was like "we as a company are committed to freedom," but it didn't address his prior actions or views).

Maybe once he deigns to say the word "sorry" I'll worry about whether or not he's a good person.

They'd be perfectly within their rights, just as OKCupid is. Or would you rather OKCupid refrain from expressing themselves on their own website, just because you don't like it? :)

Why on Earth do you think that the appropriate way to punish the bigwigs making these decisions is to make the employees' lives harder?

Getting Misogyny, Racism and Homophobia Out of Gaming

Fwipp "B" (704 comments)

So, you think that straight & gay people could choose to be bisexual? I guess?

And sure, you legitimately think that. There are people who legitimately think the earth is 6000 years old, too. Doesn't make you any less wrong.

It's kinda telling that, for you, "competition" has to include shitting on people who aren't even involved, or you won't enjoy it.

Fwipp Resolution (704 comments)

Easy - the former is only said by people who think women are fragile beings who need protection by big strong men. Or, can you not tell the difference between MRAs and feminists?

Fwipp Extrapolation (704 comments)

It's not hard to extrapolate.

If I say "hey, hey, woah, let's check out BOTH SIDES of the evolution argument" - it's not hard to figure out that I don't "believe" in evolution. Just because your literal words sound objective, doesn't mean that they are.

Getting Misogyny, Racism and Homophobia Out of Gaming

Fwipp "peecee" (704 comments)

Yes, saying that an unchangeable characteristic about a person is socially acceptable is too radical for Slashdot.

What's next? Games that say it's "okay" to be black?? Please, free market, save us from this terrible fate!

Getting Misogyny, Racism and Homophobia Out of Gaming

Fwipp Oh, that's easy (704 comments)

So, if instead of saying homophobia, I said heterosexism, all my arguments would instantly be valid? Weird that you're hung up on a word you don't understand the meaning of.

We enforce free speech laws that allow the Westboro Baptist Church to protest, don't we? Why is that "the reverse" of protecting racist Nazi's?

Oh, you mean that you want to be able to shit on other people, and face no *social* backlash? That doesn't work for Nazis, either, sorry.

Yes, the "market" is going to magically erase misogyny in gaming, because here's these games that sold super well for being misogynist.
