"Not only will I NOT comply, I question your ability to educate my daughter. At the point in time where reasonable people cannot understand that our children need quality role models is the point that I have to question whether or not you are capable of independent thought. Wonder woman was and has always been a symbol of justice to fight against people who would do evil. That you would focus on the violence and ignore the moral of her story is ridiculous. I expect more from my teachers and my educators that would sexualize a super heroine and put blinders on to the message because of the fact that she fits within a particular genre. Will you ban all pictures of predatory animals since they also are extremely violent to the point of tearing flesh from limbs? I must say if it is violence that you are worried about, then this is most definitely a concern and I will look forward to the new dress code that also includes all predatory animals. Until then I find your letter to be ridiculously ignorant and I refuse to teach my daughter that she must only have heroes who sit quietly in the corner obeying their male counterparts."

(Pretty sure something like this needs to be sent. It hits all the points and has a little SJW flair at the end to scare them a bit)

My position on doxxing and harassment submitted by Atko to announcements

NateThomas1979 2 points 87 points (+89|-2) ago

This is exactly what i expected out of Atko. Now I wonder if those who tried to coerce him into action vs. simply requesting his rational actions to occur in due time... will return and continue to contribute to the website.

To everyone:

We are Voat. It is not simply Atko, or Puttitout who makes up this site. We do. If we want it to be great(and I do), then we have to work to make it that. Let's renew ourselves together to create this into its potential.

Creating a safe space DISCOURAGES discussion.

Which creates more discussion, two opposing views or everyone in agreement?

Creating a safe space is nothing more than saying that certain people do not deserve a voice because of slights perceived or real.

I'm not a fan of Hecho, Amalek, MH101,etc. But I'd rather deal with their ilk than become a place that doesn't reflect reality.

It is because Doxxing I believe is a form of harrassment and therefore can get you in legal trouble in the US.

The people who didn't want to bake the cake for the gay couple for example got a 135k charge against them for releasing the couple's address.

I'd take this down if it is true.

EDIT: HAHAHAHAHA.... ok... you got me. I'm a dumbass.

Salon is trying to tie /r9k to the Oregon shooting now too. submitted by NateThomas1979 to KotakuInAction

Who's a robot? I hate to break your stereotypical thought process but I've been a 'gamer' before they even had the term. I grew up playing the Commodore 64 and Atari. The idea that all gamers are basement dwelling individuals with horrible hygiene and lack of social skills, well the 90's called, they left years ago and haven't been back since.

Your grandmother plays games on her phone. Your dad has played games and your children will be 'gamers' too. The idea of a gamer has gone from hardcore individuals to mainstream. In fact, I'd be remiss to think that you yourself don't have 1-2 games either on a computer, phone or console.

So you fit within the realm of a 'gamer' too.

"But I'm not like THEM!" you say. "I don't have poor hygiene! People love me! I don't spew hatred!"

Yet you feel the need to try to be condescending to one of the most diverse amount of individuals if not the most in the world. Unfortunately the reality that you've constructed in your head isn't what is in real life. Continue to live in that made-up world where your enemies are all the most unsuccessful individuals, while your idols are superheros.

Side note: Your usage of the term autism as a way to insult a group of individuals is telling. I'm guessing that you have someone close who is dealing with that condition. I'm sorry for that. Whoever that person is, well maybe you should cut them some slack. Lots of autistic individuals become great, such as Albert Einstein, Tim Burton, Bill Gates, Dan Akroyd, and many others who have had to deal with the same conditions. Sometimes it is just a matter of finding that focus that many normally functioning individuals lack as well.

EDIT: Did I miss something? Is Groomzilla not insulting those who are pro-GG, i.e. pro-gaming journalism standards? Perhaps I'm just not versed in the lingo or something?

Why I hate fat people, and why you should too. submitted by DelusionalHominids to fatpeoplehate

NateThomas1979 4 points -4 points (+0|-4) ago

Time for some downvotes, but listen at least to what I have to say first.

I get the disgust.

I get the utter disbelief that someone cannot take control of their life and instead inconvenience yours with their smell, sight, etc.

With all that said, I cannot condone hatred of them. The obsession over them.

Hatred eats at your body. Positive emotions are associated with lower blood pressure. There is an association with stroke from negative emotions.

The idea that I should hate anyone is just counterproductive in my mind, fat or not. I don't hate the dude who threw a bottle at me and said 'get out of Lafayette you faggot!"(which is hilarious because I'm not gay, although my coworker that I was walking to work with is). I don't hate a family member who abused me. Hatred in and of itself is me giving away some of my control to someone else. It's me saying "YOU affect me".

Guess what? Fuck anyone who thinks that they can control my life. A cop? Nope. A priest? Nope. Someone who is in my way? Not even close. I CHOOSE what goes on in my head. You may be able to detain me, you may be able to condemn me in your religion, but guess what? My mind is mine.

So the encouragement of hate it just doesn't fly for me. I get the disgust, I really do. I am on record and people know that I'm a personal trainer. These individuals are my bread and butter and I deal with them at different stages all day long. But the idea that I should hate them? Nope, I won't give anyone that power over my mind.

Instead, I would say the only thing I agree with in FPH is the disgusting insistence on HAES. It's not true, it's never been true and it never will be true. It doesn't matter who says it, it's just not reality.

But that is an idea. I hate the idea. But the person? I just feel sorry for them.
