I feel like Volo's posts should come with references and links, so that we could understand what he/she's saying.

 

Either way I have fun reading them.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

**** pic in the email/private message? You think only women get those? L0LZ I get those  once and awhile too, and I'm male and hetereosexual.  You know what i do/ I erase it, and move on. I'm certainly not scarred for life.

 

But, then again, i'm not a weak woman who needs protection from  the evilist, disgusting,  not worthy of being called human - the human male.

 

Eww.. Filthy things. let's avoid them whenever we can.

 

\Why do people not value themselves?

 

'Rape culture'. L0LZ All men are rapists. HAHAHA!

 

\*reads a story where a woman cut off a man's ****,  another storywhere a woman murder nearly 10 of her babies.* But, men are the bad guys?

 

of course,. there are bad men. And, good men. And, good women. And, bad women.

 

It's not news.

 

Stop treating women like they are little babies that need to be cuddled.

 

Stop treating men like they are the plague who only think of raping women and are simply monsters.

 

\It's disrespectful to both genders.

I think we are all aware of your distaste for freedom Bruce.

 

No, no, no that's completely wrong. I believe in freedom absolutely but not if that freedom means it offends or hurts someone else

 

 

That's not something that, as the offending party...or even necessarily the offended party...can control.

 

it is fascinating to see how folks raised elsewhere sees different. in the US we view as kinda obvious that the speech that is most needing protection is speech that is likely to offend somebody. nevertheless, elsewhere, it is seen as equal obvious that hurtful or hateful speech is not worthy of govt. protection. we has actual written articles on this subject. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Women online need to act like Aussie women and just give back as good as they get. Didn't think Volo was posting along the lines of misandry but eh.

There's always a factor missing from the whole truth of the story because if the media can make a story cause a riot or panic then they will do it.

You can't even say threats of violence against the President (class D felony).

 

I remember a story where a 70 year oldish Vietnam Vet. said he was going to kill Barack Obama, as soon as the nurse reported what he said Secret Services came and hauled him away.

Oddly enough, I got suspended when I was 12 for carving my name in a desk. I am pretty sure I deserved it. That is called vandalism.

You'd expect an American to be better at crafting something gun-shaped than that disgraceful attempt, clearly that's why he was suspended.

Aren't examples such as above usually decried and derided more or at least equally by USians than anyone else, anyways? Sure, they still happen occasionally...but people tend to get really bent out of shape about them.

 

Why are we talking about this, again? I thought this topic was about "female gamers in gaming communities", not silly criticism of America, (whether warranted or not - the place it's being put is what makes it silly).

Bester is actually a big fan of the US, so he puts up silly arguments so we can knock them down and show how great America is.  :)

most examples ain't fee speech issues at all and ain't real surprising in context. bester random pulls nonsense off of the inter-web w/o context.

 

as hurl points out, ny city, perhaps foolishly, has a newish zero tolerance policy regarding vandalism in schools. you vandalize, they call cops... although actually all security in nyc schools is now considered cops. 

 

have no idea 'bout the fox news thing, but who cares? we don't have state run new media here in the US. you think fox news is jerky? well guess what, so does loads o' folks.  

 

the kid with the pop-tart gun is kinda funny. supposedly the pop tart were simply a last straw kinda situation, but until it goes through process we won't know. sounds ridiculous. 

 

we can post literal hundreds o' better examples o' travesty o' justice here in the US, 'cause sadly, rule o' law often results in questionable justice. the lady is blindfolded after all. take sentencing out o' judges hands in many cases exacerbates situation.  how many 3-strike horror stories is there floating 'round?

 

HA! Good Fun!

Actually twenty some odd years ago, they had an officer come in and talk to me about the vandalism as well.  I was sufficiently cowed, so not much happened, but I'm guessing there is more to the story if the kid ended up in cuffs.  Notice there was nothing about an arrest, sounds like more of a scare tactic than anything else.

no, she was indeed arrested... cuffed, and taken to the police precinct.  vandalism is a crime, but seriously? as far as we can tell, the nyc school district has decided to pass the buck on this issue. is weird, but it clearly is meant as a scare tactic and to shame kids outta their evil ways.  silliness... unless it is working. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

 

ps for things like this to occur, there needs to be a chain o' simpletons.  group o' well-intentioned clowns come up with a zero-tolerance policy. then a teacher has gotta fail to deal with this kinda thing in class. a principal is then required to actual call the police (who were admittedly located right across the street) and request that the girl be formally arrested.

Yep, they do, probably more than the 4 I've noticed there though as, well, I'm not gathering intel on them.
