Re: Bill.

Oh my God. I feel sick. I just feel physically ill. I had no idea he was even sick. I often wondered what happened to Bill after he stopped appearing in LRR sketches. He was hilarious, he was talented, and while I never met him IRL, the few times I spoke with him on-line, he always seemed like a gen...

Re: Florida and Andy's Explosion of Crazy

Pretty sure I've posted this in the forum before, but since feed dump talked about Planet Fitness, this is what I've written about them before; in short, it's far, far worse than you'd think: The heavy-set woman approaches the treadmill. She’s somewhat aware that she’s a bit out of place in this gym...

Loading Ready Reunion

I don't know where everyone is, or if this is feasable, but if you're going to do a final season, it would be awesome to see a reunion episode of all the past past cast members; particularly Bill and Morgan.

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

Wraith, since you're the one in this thread who is demanding better evidence, can you provide a citation on male domestic violence victims, or on the "hordes" of angry feminists who would disapprove of domestic violence / rape crisis centres for men? I am not saying I disbelieve everythin...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

What I said was about disproportionate Violent Crimes, of all kinds, against Women justifying the existence of Women Only spaces. Because Women do not have access to the same level of safeness that Men experience by default. Your rebuttal to my argument is "You are saying that the .002% of men...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

Wraith, the club isn't supposed to be a way to prevent someone from killing her, it's just a space where she'll feel safe in general. From the .002% of men that murder women. And that justifies discrimination against the 99.998% that don't. OK. Again Wraith you decide that only murders count, which...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

Wow. First, we ignore that focusing on homicides was just to highlight the highest profile kind of violent crime. So we can limit it down to that number, which reduces the apparent threat a whole lot. I used what you provided as evidence. It was enough evidence for you to base your argument on, but...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

Wraith, if you ever want anyone to remotely change their ways to suit yours, perhaps you shouldn't persist in deriding them long afterwards. I'm trying very hard not to bite at your hooks, but you throw so many, and they all look so very much the same for all the years you've been using them. In ot...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

[The United States Department of Justice compiled homicide statistics in the United States between 1980 and 2008. And yes men were more likely to be the victims of homocides, by 76% to 23%, a fact that MRAs love to bring up. But that's because they don't then bring up the other part... 89.5% of hom...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

As a white person, I'm treated better. Everyone should be treated that way, but they aren't. That makes it a privilege: something I'm getting that others aren't, for no reasons other than my being white. Do you believe that everyone has the inherent right to live without being raped? Does that mean...

Ok, yes. Fine. We're all using the word privilege wrong. And yet, somehow we all understand what is meant by it. We understand your point, and there are arguments to be made about the evolution of language and such, but now isn't the time. If you want to mentally swap the words "good fortune&q...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

I think you might be misunderstanding what it's supposed to mean. It doesn't mean "you said something that is true, but because of who you are, you are actually wrong". It means "You said something that is not true, and it's probably because of your perspective. Maybe you should reco...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

The thing is, though, that while the things usually referred to as being straight/white/male/able-bodied/whatever privilege should be afforded to everyone, they often are not. While "privilege" is not the best term for it, I honestly don't know what term would be appropriate. I dislike th...

His "privilege as a heterosexual cismale." Please, tell me; what exactly does he enjoy that other people are not inherently entitled to as members of the human race? Because that's what a privilege is. Like I said, if everyone is inherently entitled to it, then it's not a privilege, it's a...

Yeah, that whole equating killing another player in Call Of Duty as similar to enacting Rape is totally overblown. I mean it's not like there's a culture in the online game 'community' that prompts people to simulate a sex act on the digital corpse such as tea-bagging. Yes. The digital corpse. In t...

Re: Penny Arcade and 'The Mike Problem'

I think I see what you're getting at, but what confuses me is that I don't think that was in dispute. The type of people who say things like "cis-scum" are very probably the same people who responded aggressively and confrontationally to Mike in the first place (leaving aside whether or n...

It's not like I pulled it out of thin air here; I responded to the OP. The OP gave two examples; one (the dick wolves thing) that I'd actually not heard of, and one (the cis blowup) which I'd heard entirely too much about. So I commented on the cis blowup; which was where the idea of "The Mike ...
