There's plenty of bullshit around feminism, anti-Trump attacks are disgusting and I'm sure some BLM people are racist but I am continually surprised by how quickly people, in a topic that blew up because they were sick of negative generalisations about gamers, so quickly do the same about these groups or even "the Left" as a whole. This is how language naturally works and generalisations are essential to communicate but it's so often clumsy and in shihonage's kool-aid fuelled rant, silly.
BLM in particular. It is not Only BLM, it is BLM Too - in this context, life mattering is defined as how often cops kill black or white people. It is focus, not exclusion.

Quboid - this is what I meant when I said people keep giving this excuse. "There are murderers with Twitter accounts." Yes, but they aren't murdering people on Twitter.
I get that. It was scarcely relevant in the first place, but the start of your comment says the opposite; that his defenders think it is a pattern and not one night.
Edit: "he photoshopped" - source?
Oh, crap. You're right, I had that reversed.
Oh, for the [Photoshop
LOL so his entire ban is one photoshopped tweet pointing out how it's totally ok to be racist against white people? That's the point of juxtaposition but that might have gone over your head. You're saying he was a systemic troll. I can't find anything that shows he's as bad as some people on here make him out to be. He's the antichrist! Oh he's the worst, he does this all the time!! OK well prove it. Uhh I have this one screenshot... while Leslie Jones says bigoted shit repeatedly. LOL. You guys are hilarious.
