Roy -- When someone says "fuck" or "shit" they're not necessarily inviting conversation on intercourse or defecation respectively.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- But without labels, how do I know who to hate?
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- It's unfortunate that you focus on labels and not the counterproductive behaviors that cause people to use labels.
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- No, it's really not, because the moment someone mentions things or uses words like "fagg*t", they are, by the usage, bringing into relevancy that subject into their discussion a la parts explosion.
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- And "inappropriate context" should be self-explanatory. Bringing it up for the sake of it and interjecting it into irrelevant discussion are basic examples.
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- The very labels of "zealot" and "extremist" take away from the real issues that people are trying to call out attention to with respect to advocacy. Again, using ill-defined terms that are convenient for you ultimately belittles the opposition, so there is very little choice besides to increase calls or help.
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- Maybe it's harder for you to spot if you don't deal with them.
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Same with "inappropriate context."
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- No, it really wasn't simple, and now I remember what I was speciically criticizing with "edgy neckbeard": there's absolutely no good measurement of what makes a "zealot."
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- But I love being an edgy neckbeard, what else am I supposed to do with my time?
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- My statement was simple: you don't have to be a zealot to be an advocate, and the former is more likely to alienate than unite people.
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- Or "edgy neckbeards"?
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Or "extremists."
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Roy
Roy shouted: Not sure what you're getting at, Sand Wraith.
If you want to talk about desensitization, don't bring in "extremism". That's all.
[>24 hours ago]
Dem0n -- yeah
[>24 hours ago]
jjf28 -- insta ban?
[>24 hours ago]
jjf28 -- yea oops, 2x missing mod nights

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- cool, this voltage dropper thing also seems to increase the bass xD
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- Not sure what you're getting at, Sand Wraith.
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- instead of going out of one's way to attack that position for being popular, or politically correct, or what-have-you (which I'm sure/know a lot of us here have been guilty of)
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Sand Wraith
Sand Wraith shouted: Using that label (extremist) steals away a very small and oppressed minority's benefit of doubt and is superbly uncritical. You effectively put trans adocacy in a position wherein either they sit idly by "waiting" to have an excuse to complain about being murdered, abused, harassed, assaulted, or to be ignored on the basis of "well reasons."
Relevant is this article http://freethoughtblogs.com/hetpat/2013/08/14/the-equal-treatment-fallacy/ . Sure, desensitization is a problem, but, you know, as a layman, one can always say "yep, I remember someone talking about that. I'll look into it when I have time"

Devourer -- holy shit

jjf28 -- someone buy my terran metal, i'd like to stock up on food and demolish my agriculture infrastructure!
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I'd also imagine, bigotry and homo/whateverphobia aside, it's hard to count because it's not as static or black-and-white as people like to say it is
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Roy
Roy shouted: It's the same with most groups, really. You just hear the extremists banter on about the subject to no end, to the point where they actually desensitize and thereby defeat the purpose of gaining advocacy with the common man.
"Extremist." Right.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- But I need to know with a tolerance of ±30 people.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- >​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​<
[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- There's not really an accurate number for any large group of people. It's just too hard to count things.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- There is lots of space: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ It's just too small to see it
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- Sand Wraith
Sand Wraith shouted: "pin" -> I meant "estimate". It's hard to tell because research is partially confounded by homophobia and bigotry
That's why I said there's not an accurate number

[>24 hours ago]
Roy -- I did that in my head.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- jjf28
jjf28 shouted: "zero-width space" that's self contradicting
Roy
Roy shouted: jjf28 It's more like a paradox, really.

[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- FaRTy1billion
FaRTy1billion shouted: I was about to ask for an approximate percentage, and then I realized there isn't even such a percentage for homosexuality so I'm sure this will have a far less accurate percentage. ;o
eh, various studies have pinned the numbers for sexual minorities between 1-10%

Sand Wraith -- It's hard to get across that it's humour since it's mostly trans community in-joke though lol ^^

Sand Wraith -- FaRTy1billion
FaRTy1billion shouted: I figured he meant like those "Dear Cis People" or "Die Cis Scum" things that happened some time ago
LOL that's either (1) humour (2) utmost frustration.
[>24 hours ago]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I figured he meant like those "Dear Cis People" or "Die Cis Scum" things that happened some time ago

jjf28 -- it's a funny position, l2 humor
[>24 hours ago]
Sand Wraith -- Roy
Roy shouted: I sympathize with transgendered individuals because they're grouped into the zealots that push an agenda in inappropriate contexts with an incessant fervor that can only be considered obnoxious, whereas I'm sure most of them are quite reasonable.
That could mean literally anything. This is a wholly garbage position.
