Razer Drops Streamer for Calling Men Trash, Says It's 'Extremism'

Forums - Politics Discussion - Razer Drops Streamer for Calling Men Trash, Says It's 'Extremism'

I personally think it's wrong by Razer since they seem to be overly sensitive about language use. However, if they have in their terms and conditions that you can't use language like that, they are in their right do terminate contracts. They are a private business and it is up to then to set the terms.

Her statement was moronic and incorrect though but people should be able to make moronic and incorrect statements aswell.

Lol, this site remains a cesspits when it comes to opinions.

You think Razor would have a bit of solidarity with all the additional shit a female gamers goes through when in the spotlight and give her a slap on the wrist whilst also supporting her. Comparing that to extremism is dense, as if she means it literally to all men and as if there's a president for this kind of comment translating into violence and discrimination against men. Meanwhile persistence verbal harassment does actually translate into sexual harassment for far too many women out there. This is the exact kind of thinking you adopt when you leave your brain at home and try to apply ethics without any contextual awareness.

You mean we are not like that other gaming forum, right?

Thank god for that.People at least think here, quite contrary to that other place.

so essentially its ok for women to call men trash, but not for men to call women trash?

"as if there's a president for this kind of comment translating into violence and discrimination against men. "

men are 4 times more likely to be the victims of violent crime than women are

disregarding that for a minute how does a man asking a woman to ride him translate into violence and discrimination against women?

can you explain for me rationally how one naturally leads into the other?

I don't think you understood what i wrote.

can you clarify?

The first half of Rol's comment has the potential to trigger the "women don't want equality but privilege for women" fraction. In the second half however he paints the picture of the weak women who has to be protected, which has a bitter tast for feminists, progessives, strong women etc..

I liked that dualism.

Yes we do not have a hivemind just yet :p

Female or not,she should have been more carefully with her wording and can not blame razor to not want to put money in what might be negative attention but i agree that this outcome is too severe for that slip up that might be a bit understandable regarding the situation.

Not a genderrelated thing though,regardless of naughty words from children one must contain decent language.

Perhaps they could have given her a slap on the wrist, but I also respect Razer for trying to treat all of this crap equally. You want them to use a convoluted argument to essentially not punish her and justify what she did. I support simply treating all this "hate speech" equally if they do at all.

Men also deal with violence and discrimination, its just not a concern of any popular left wing movements. Lets just agree calling any group trash for immutable differences is not cool.

@DonFerrari Can you give a brief summary of what she's saying in the first video since it's not too long? I'd like to know what's being said in all of them, but doubt I'll have the time to learn Portuguese today. :)

"Contextual awareness" here means that you argue for double standards. But there is another way to approach moral reasoning, which is to hold individuals to the same ethical standard without respect to their gender, race, etc.
