He deserved it. People should never make jokes like that, it could hurt people.

How is jailing him even remotely justifiable, seriously. He wasn't shouting fire in a movie theater, he was responding to a dumb*** comment on Facebook. Does context just not mean anything anymore?

The fact that 40% of Fungi Forum members have ridiculously long hair, neck beards, ironic patchy mustaches, and faces that would make one question whether they poured used grease over their faces makes me lose faith in humanity.
Formerly quite reasonable.

Quote from: Guardian article
All police forces will work with a single secure database of illegal images of children to help "close the net on paedophiles".
Yeah, just building a huge database of child porn. Nothing suspicious there.

The Daily Mail, which has been running a campaign to crack down on pornography online

I already know they're awful, but...really?

My favorite part will be watching as they utterly fail to account for how generous the term "porn" can be.

Sorry for the double post, but this child board in particular is a total dead zone, so I hope it's not too big a deal.

If you're a more conservative type, like Weegee for example, this article will make you lose. If you're a more liberal type, then the comments will probably make you lose. I'd maybe call myself a moderate liberal type, but I didn't take very kindly to either the article or those idiots complaining about the "Jewish conspiracy" in the comments.

I groaned just from the implications of the URL.The article itself is really REALLY reaching. It's not even funny. I mean yes there are still sexist games. But Zelda?

I think crazy oversensitivity to sexism, also known as feminazism, is creating more problems than it's solving. And probably oversensitivity to racism too. I feel like writers are afraid to make characters anything but straight white males, except for the ones devoid of flaws and personalities. And can you blame them? No one wants to look racist or sexist, and anything you do can be considered such. But they have to keep up appearances, so they make those flawless characters of other races and femality. And they need to remind you they are women or Asian or whatever they are, and so that becomes their only trait. The result is, surprise! Sexism and racism!

So why are white men the default, with changes to race or gender treated as character traits in and of themselves? Why can't it be more comfortable to just come up with the role and personality first and then make a face that works for it, be it a man's, a woman's, belonging to any race? That's what I do. It works pretty well. As a rule I think if you could change your female or non-white character to a white male, still have an interesting character, and don't have to make any major, compromising changes to their personalities, priorities etc., then you're doing it right. Turns out most people act like people.

AHAHAHA

Anyway, those are good points, BP. White males are seen as the default, so any deviation from that default is bound to be met with overanalysis. If a game developer created an entirely new IP and decided on the characters' races and genders at complete, absolute random, it would still face accusations of stereotyping.

(THIS MIGHT TAKE A LONG TIME TO LOAD BECAUSE THIS POST HAS QUITE A FEW LARGE IMAGES)

What really got me was them mentioning that Ganondorf has "brown skin". Maybe slightly brownish looking at certain points in certain games and in some artwork. In OOT, the game that they were mainly analyzing?

His skin

even in the remake

is freaking GREEN
NOT BROWN
GREEN

And even in the others, it's pretty obviously green.

In Twilight Princess, it's fairly green.

In (the admittedly cartoony) Wind Waker, it's definitely green.

In many games, he's not even a humanoid (That's right! Not even human!), let alone a "brown" one.
