This:



I never said you shouldn't be there. But you should man up and deal with it, like everyone else. They are not gonna change for you, princess.


Got quickly changed to this:



I never said you shouldn't be there. But you should man up and deal with it, like everyone else. They are not gonna change for you princesses entering their playground.




What's the matter princess ?
Worried you'll get a slap on the wrist by the mods for posting a personal attack on another ATS member ?

I was thinking of a way to poke back against the whole 5 year old boy remark. It wasn't meant as a personal attack, which is why I changed it, obviously.

And how is this not an personal attack on another poster?


That it is.

It's also a case in point of displaying the exact thing that the OP was talking about: Without meaningful moderation on the internet, people become very ugly with the words they choose to use... if they were allowed to do just that.

So I'll get my wrist slapped for displaying that which this particular poster was too thin skinned to do.

I "manned up".

You knew the misogynists would descend on this thread in their droves proclaiming their right to mistreat other's based on their gender, i heard the knuckle dragging 30 pages ago.

Well misogynists aside as now doubt you may be right or you may be a bit exaggerating.

But considering your response is on page 22 and this thread so far is only up to page 24 so far. I do believe you may be exaggerating a bit there on the whole misogynists knuckle dragging from 30 pages ago. That is unless you somehow got a time machine and went into the future to when we get to page 30 and over, then came back in time to inform us poor page 24ers of all the knuckle dragging going on.

If you can no doubt tell. I call shenanigans on your whole 30 pages of misogynistic knuckle dragging thing, I would say that it is at least only 5 or so real such pages were you could say it was that, but hey I skipped a few pages of this thread. That and I dont have time machine, so you could be right.

What makes you think I'm overly sensitive to it? I get it... you think dudes should be able to say anything rude and disgusting, but I shouldn't be able to say that it's rude and disgusting because my 60$ drop and 15$/month thereafter means less than theirs. I don't report them but I don't tolerate it either. I generally put people on ignore but if I feel like it I'll call them on their BS, they in turn can put me on ignore if they don't like it.

Let's not even talk about how there's something obviously mentally wrong with people, any people that troll or try to intentionally offend or bully. You may want to be lazy and try to play it off as boys being boys and if that's how you want people to perceive men that's on you but you're doing a great disservice to men by participating or condoning it.

Not taking the bait. Nice try though, I applaud the effort. I already explained my intention, you can carry on speculating otherwise if you would like. Whatever floats your boat.

I think most of these "attacks" are because of psychiatric and psychological problems.

It's my playground too. Do you even realize that you're pitching a fit trying to defend assholery? That says a lot about you, Chiquito.

I am pitching a fit? Howso? And assholery is a part of the whole male bonding thing. Verbal jousting, taking jabs at each other, is a normal thing when dudes gather to be dudes.

That's all fine, I totally get that and it's entertaining. What's being discussed in this thread goes so far beyond that... I guess you would have to see it for yourself to understand.

Not particularly.
The only one who got a wrist slap was me for calling you on it.
Imagine that.

Having fun misrepresenting my opinion?
Here, I'll correct it for you:

you think people should be able to say anything rude and disgusting


And yes I do think people should be able to say whatever they want.
No matter how distasteful I may think it is.
I'm not trying to control anyone.

Noticing the obvious sexist slant you are automatically taking?

You're assuming I didn't get my wrist slapped too...

Ya your right. It is your playground to, but really I mean just put them on mute it works wonder for me, in fact its sometimes better when you dont have to hear people talk, some of them just never shut up once they get going. Or if like you said they had a problem with you being the host and a female. Well you can always tell the to funk off, then kick them out of the room, or vent, or chat, or whatever. Just saying you know.

Maybe. Like I said, the only online game I ever played was FFXI, girls where surrounded by whiteknights, showered with gifts and prettymuch worshipped as goddesses there.

Having one's post removed is not the only form of punishment on ATS.

Maybe you just haven't been around long enough to know this yet ?



I guess that would explain why your assuming my wrists aren't just as raw as yours.

No biggie.

People should be able to say anything they want. That doesn't mean they should expect automatic agreement or silence in lieu of agreement. If you say something disgusting such as after finding out I'm a woman in YOUR game that you're going to rape me and then graphically describe how you're going to do this... I get to say that you're a disgusting pig and that there's something wrong with you. That isn't playing around, it's not joking and it isn't funny and typically that's a violation of any games T&C that YOU agreed to when you created an account. Typically I wouldn't report you, I'd either put you on ignore or engage while you continue to prove what a turd you are.

I didn't need a correction, the context of our banter is you thinking men should be able to be assholes without repercussion and me rejecting that notion. Saying dudes wasn't sexist, it was appropriate. You are batting zero in trying to change people's words around them. You might want to give it up.

*** ATTENTION ***


How about we get back to the topic at hand instead of discussing each other. Discussion will go much smoother that way. Thank you. Carry on.
