Our President says trans rights!

If Blizzard can’t get people to play Overwatch “properly” to the point they need to force them to, how the fuck can this prez get the entirety of the gaming community to “respectfully” do anything?
Making other people call you using specific words isn’t a ‘right’
Can we keep politics out of this sub and just leave it in the shit subs we don’t like please? Thanks.
“Canonical” pronouns would be the sex not the gender.
Edit: I hope I didn’t offend anyone. My point was that calling transgendered pronouns “canon” is a misnomer. “Representative” would have been a better word.
Fuck of with this cancer.
What party is this so I can vote oposite please
Some of you guys are getting real bent out of shape over nothing.
Ace Watkins for pres2020! Can’t wait to see if his vp pick is a pallet swapped him or a respectable crossplatform character.
Only fools would fall for this crap.
Its really not that hard to be a decent person
Okay but, Horde or Alliance?
Just going to say…
Comparing peoples ability to memorise an entirely fictional fantasy world with a bunch of fictional pronouns for fictional “genders”? Not sure if he is stating that moon sexual, stellarsexual, pansexual and gender fluid are as real as Sarex the fury specced orc warrior who tanked Onyxia last night?
People remember it because it is interesting. Preferred pronouns are, however, not. Case closed.
Who cares I hate everyone the same
But the lore doesn’t call me a bigot if I don’t accurately remember it.
get this shit off of the gaming community
I choose not to give a shit about what’s in your pants. Leave me the fuck out of your gender identity.
Oh boy, time to dive into the comments on a trans related post and find all the assholes at the bottom!
The amount of respectful commenting and considerate gamers in this post/group go completely against my experience for the entirety of my online gaming experiences
Alright, but the Borderlands 3 FL4K controversy is pretty dumb.
I think a lot of people in this thread could benefit from meeting some of the really amazing trans people in the world. Most of us are very kind, and just want empathy/respect in life.
You can really tell that the company backing him made him say that.
If a close friend says I prefer being called he/she I’ll say sure. I can barely remember the names of semi-close people so probably not in that case, and I’m not going to start conversations with “What are your pronouns today?”. I know very little of Azeroth lore (despite playing WoW and HS) because I don’t care much. Same for pronouns.
Also, go do some introspection if you misgender to get a rise out of people OR expect everyone to remember your obscure sociological mumbo jumbo pronouns.
Oh boy there’s gonna be some triggered gamers in here
I really don’t get the anger people have about this issue. Nobody wants us all to memorize a billion variations on the “spectrum of gender identity”, the only pronouns that most reasonable people expect are he/him, she/her, or they/them. I’m 100% cisgender (born male, feel male, am male, just gay) and I don’t see this as any kind of imposition. Takes some getting used to, but it’s really no big deal. Yes, there are some obnoxiously vocal people on social media, but every trans/genderfluid/etc person I’ve ever met in the real world has been decent and patient.
To us, it’s literally no more effort than memorizing a nickname. If we can get “Dick” from “Richard” without confusion, we can handle referring to someone as “they.” And to them, it means the world. Acknowledgement, recognition, and respect. You know, those things the Stonewall rioters and so many others fought for all LGBT people to be able to feel without fearing the police beating the hell out of us.
Nobody outside of some idiots on social media wants to “force” anyone to say or do anything, or even to care. But trust me, this isn’t worth getting up in arms about. It takes next to no effort, requires no personal sacrifice, and means the world to some people who really just want to feel as comfortable as we do.
Comment graveyard incoming, says a lot when this topic cant be talked about in a civil manner
no thanks maam. Normal people won’t tolerate being screeched at for saying he/she
I just don’t care enough. Him/Her that’s as far as I go
Sometimes in life, you’re put on red team, but you want to be on blue team. Or maybe you want to start a green team, that’s okay.
Okay so imagine there’s a bunch of people in a room talking about an issue and everyone is just chilling & talking about how they don’t understand what the big deal is. Then you waltz in out of the blue and start accusing all of them for being wrong and disrespectful. That’s what position you’re in with this argument. The other person never said anything disrespectful, they just did not care. If you want people to join your team you have to recruit them, not argue with them for not being on one.
who the fook is that guy
this man belike muselks long lost brother
Yes but i care about lore. I don’t give 2 shits about your fucking pronouns.
