Please, more social media sites need to do this. : Search l 6790 6:21 PM e forum.rpg.net Forum Administrator said: Today 09:39 AM New Ban: Do Not Post In Support of Trump or his Administration The following policy announcement is the result of over a year of serious debate by the moderation team. The decision is as close to unanimous as we ever get. It will not be the subject of further debate. We have fully considered the downsides and ultimately decided we have to stay true to our values. We will not pretend that evil isn't evil, or that it becomes a legitimate difference of political opinion if you put a suit and tie on it. We are banning support of Donald Trump or his administration on the RPGnet forums. This is because his public comments, policies, and the makeup of his administration are so wholly incompatible with our values that formal political neutrality is not tenable. We can be welcoming to (for example) persons of every ethnicity who want to talk about games, or we can allow support for open white supremacy. Not both. Below will be an outline of the policy and a very incomplete set of citations We have a community here that we've built carefully over time, and support for elected hate groups aren't welcome here. We can't save the world, but we can protect and care for the small patch that is this board Policy outline: 1. We are banning support of the administration of President Trump.

Sure, in some cases there's not much hope for changing anyone's minds, but to default at "ostracise, humiliate, shun and berate" is not a good approach IMO. Moderator Text: No. You know what? Fuck that noise. Ethnic cleansing is not "different views." Racism is not "different views." White nationalism is not "different views." Dogwhistling that attacks against your political enemies will continue if the media doesn't stop saying things you don't like is not "different views." Putting children in cages is not "different views This is not an argument over tax rates or the proper role of government in education. This is an argument about who will be allowed to exist in America Get the fuck out of this thread. Don't post here again.

micdotcom: Philippines gets its first transgender congresswoman In a country that has seen a rash of anti-LGBTQ violence, Geraldine Roman’s sweep of the Bataan district seat is an especially encouraging win for activists. She ran a campaign that emphasized her politics over her gender, but the win is made more meaningful for the stringently Catholic country’s pattern of violating the rights of LGBTQ individuals — and of course, their very own (now elected) “Donald Trump.” : carlosceldran @carlosceldran Follow Bravo, Geraldine Roman!

moonsshines: There’s no redemption arc quite as beautiful as the villain realizing the depth of what they had done, and without hesitation, choosing to take responsibility for their actions. Ingrid is a breath of fresh air in a world of villains who choose to blame their misery on other people. Furthermore, choosing to state that it’s not her powers that were evil, but what she had allowed them to turn her into is an admirable form of her acknowledging that’s it’s truly all on her. It’s a choice to do good and once upon a time, she made the wrong one. With the understanding that she was in fact loved for real, she chooses to take her life because she knows it’s the only way to free everyone else from the hatred she’s lived with. The spell of Shattered Sight brings out the worst in people and fills them with hatred, but now that Ingrid’s filled with love, she realizes that this isn’t the way for people to live. They shouldn’t destroy each other, they should uplift each other. And with her final words, she chooses to remind the women that they’re special. She chooses to point out the beauty in the fact that they’ve all found the homes they’ve wanted as she’s about to go to hers. The absolute vulnerability and sincerity Mitchell emanates with her words and loving expressions is undeniably what radiates just how beautiful Ingrid’s heart really is (x).: moonsshines: There’s no redemption arc quite as beautiful as the villain realizing the depth of what they had done, and without hesitation, choosing to take responsibility for their actions.
