No, I don't want to follow a Twitch streamer or join a Discord channel. All I want is a sub with a loose community. The s/Gaming and s/PCGaming subs is one or a few people sharing links no one else cares about.

Populism - Political philosophy that supports needs and desires of "the people" over those of "the powerful."

Active video gaming subs that aren't piles of links? by antares in SaidIt

I wasn't exactly looking for anything you listed. But after giving it some thought, I am basically looking for posts that indicate what people (the community) are up to. One or two individuals sharing external links to videos they obviously did not make can not be any further from what I'm looking for.

yaio and the false narrative of escapism by grammaroo in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I wonder if Japanese culture has the same effect on Japanese people as it is having now on the weeaboos, or if it's just the extremely weird stuff that gets exported and translated.

Random thought on 'transphobia' by JulienMayfair in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Phobias are anxiety disorders or irrational fears e.g arachnophobia. The word transphobia is meant to portray dissenting opinion as irrational. In just one word the sentence can mean, "The opinion exists because the one who holds it is just irrational". I think they use the word because how much it can mean by itself.

How do we feel about reclaiming slurs? by PatsyStone in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I only have one comment and it refers to the F-slur of gay men. There seems to be an extremely established fork whether that word is okay. On this sub, it's considered a slur. Unlike the n-word, not even the gay men use variants of it. Meanwhile, on imageboard communities including those dedicated to lgbt, it's used to the point of becoming a suffix to mean "that one in our site community that likes (topic/brand/object)" regardless of sexuality.

Yes, it's homophobic for straight guys to refuse to fuck gay men by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

I don't think it's sincere either, but I have to remember why superstraight got banned.

Would the recent event count as tortious interference? Is anyone here more familiar with law?

That's weird. Because I was looking at assembly language programming communities some time ago. The reoccuring theme, at least of the ones I found, was strangely Christian.

I scrolled through and caught a few "what have YOU been up to" posts, so here's mine.

I've been using "quarantine time" to recover my eyesight (aiming to get 20/20 back). I've gone from being:

  • unable to read the screen at all without contacts or glasses

  • able to read the screen without glasses, but with big font and zoom

  • able to read the screen without glasses, with normal font and less zoom.

Currently, I'm reading The Relative Theory of Money and trying out the (crypto)currency based on it. As usual, I'm playing video games (generally, the ones that are color coded enough to play with blurry vision).

Please, for the love of fuck, use something other than Cloudflare for DDoS protection by marmorsymphata in SaidIt

[–]antares 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I don't like Cloudflare either. Usually, I never have it that bad. I do legitimately dislike the use of Google captchas. In that, if you use youtube-dl or invidious enough, they'll try to make you train their Waymo cars. Cloudflare probably shitlisted some combination of your ip address or user agent.

Scam warning: Fake password reset private message from "Saidlt" account (note that it's a lowercase L not an uppercase I". The attacks on this site are getting more sophisticated. It's a sign our speech is really a threat. Keep on posting, everyone. by Chipit in SaidIt

These kinds of things read extremely fake just by the tone. Then again, someone out there falls for it.

"I am a woman and don't plan to modify my body in any way, shape or form - do you think gay men won't be interested in me?" by ThrowMeAway2879 in LGBDropTheT

One of these days, I'll read a story of a gay-identified straight man coming out as straight to his transmasculine nb AFABfriend.

"Spreading Transphobia" by JulienMayfair in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 9 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 0 fun10 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Good on them for standing up for themselves. Throwing it out there, phobias are anxiety disorders and the word "transphobia" is meant to portray the opposition as having an irrational fear as opposed to having reasoned skepticism. (I say this even though people on this sub use the -phobia words.) So I doubt anyone that uses this word is interested in honest discussion.

The situation would change a lot if it as a catch all term has become meaningless.

Four women in speedrunning by justagaydude123 in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I strongly disagree. You can link thousands of articles that broadly state women get harassed in gaming. It will never override my personal experience within competitive video gaming. That and game journalism had credibility issues (conflict of interest, collusion, sensationalism) for over a decade, if not decades.

I can't care less of what some e-celebrity on YouTube, who I'll never interact or have contact with, does. Regardless of how mundane the people around me are (even in the internet sense of being able to directly respond), what they do matters 1000x more.

AFAIK gynecologists have to play along; otherwise, rejecting a patient based on gender identity would be considered discrimination.

I'm not against what you have to say. Yes, if there's something going on, there should be evidence presented, and much of internet culture revolves around on sharing screencaps. However, screenshots and screen recordings aren't actual evidence and are meaningless by themselves because of how easily they can be faked.

Most subs are flooded with link bots or people acting like link bots, so I don't bother visiting external links or videos.

The Supersexual L/G/B Manifesto by AdmiralPangolin in SuperStraight

[–]antares 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The terminology or sentence structure around "non-trans" should be revised. It might sound better if it's about the preference for natural sex than it is about the exclusion of transgenders.

Liberal redditors confused over whether banning a rape shelter's fundraiser is morally okay by Terfenclaw in SuperStraight

I hate how they censor something then say all the shit they want about it (e.g "nazi 4chan movement") because the people they just censored can't contest or represent.

Canadian father to be imprisoned for refusing to go along with minor daughter's transition by BEB in LGBDropTheT

[–]antares 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Many people have a very whitewashed view of surgery. For just plastic surgery, more people will see a beautiful celebrity than they will ever hear about pain, complications, scarring, botching, or disfiguration (in severe cases of addicts). For sex changes, there's a much larger list, yet similarly their focus is on idealized results.

Saidit's 'free speech' is under attack from the new admin, who is of course a tranny. Check the moderation logs and see individual user posts to see what is being removed and ask yourself "is this level of censorship in line with saidit's rules, or are they serving a personal agenda'. by bobbobbybob in SaidIt

Despite all the text, I still don't have a clear idea of what is going on beyond drama and some others kissing up to the admin. If there's ever a community vote whether to ban the topic starter, I would vote no though.

IMO: Complaints are only effective if authority and power is willing to accept it. Otherwise, a complaint is easy to dismiss. Humor, however, appeals to the public.

I noticed on Google Photos, you can download the gallery as a .zip. That's a good start. I would say at least : 1. reupload that zip on any other file host 2. include md5sum (or other if you prefer) as a checksum
