If anything, The Closer should be removed because it wasn’t funny.
Watching the self proclaimed goat flail about as both victim and bully failed on so many levels.
Now that he is done with LBGTQ as his main subject matter maybe he’ll go back to being a comedian.

Update
Netflix just fired the organizer of the employee walkout as internal conflicts over the latest Chappelle special continues to loom over the company.

This is pretty hilarious, what niche demographic did I come from, and what gaming concepts are more mainstream now to take that away from said demographic?

You're in the "unhappy that Lara Croft is now a human being and not a badly rendered pair of tits" demographic.

Another glorious case of selective attention. Gee I guess this small pile internet troll tweets must be a whole movement.
Your fave media sure as shit did their thing though, digging deep to look for absolutely anything to be offended by.
Tomb Raider's Crystal Dynamics apologizes for sexual assault misunderstanding

Does Tomb Raider's Lara Croft really have to be a survivor of a rape attempt?

It looks like more people complained about the Tomb Raider 2018 movie went out of their way to pick a smaller breasted lead that looked much younger than previously presented. (It is understood it is supposed to be a bit of an origin story, but they pushed it further than the game already did)
At the end of the day though, a pile of clickbait articles basically being "some dude said something on the internet" and inferring this must be all gamers. Then proceed to go back to making "The End of Gamers" articles.

Did some dudes say some dumb stuff about Tomb Raider breasts, sure. But most old school fans have more nuanced notes: Tomb Raider: A Tale of Two Laras

Fundamentally Tomb Raider was a fairly light hearted/fantastical action game series that turned into one trying to be more gritty and "realistic". Some past fans are going to be turned off a big change like that. Me personally, I got Tomb Raider 2013 on mega sale a while back and was entertained enough to be content as I was not super invested in the old games.

Buddy, you're obsessed with feeling oppressed because gaming becoming accepted in the mainstream means gaming doesn't revolve around you any more.

This is pretty hilarious, what niche demographic did I come from, and what gaming concepts are more mainstream now to take that away from said demographic? Let me check how many times I complained that Barbie had a series of games, sports games are more for jocks, or Pokemon is more for kids, oh yea: zero.

Most of these silly arguments are basically average people calling out obvious ridiculous decisions in gaming/culture, and then tech lefties coming out of the wood work to say how much they have no issue with said decision and everyone should shut up for complaining.

Meanwhile we saw on this thread a discussion about the Netflix walkout:

Beamer: Pretty sure this whole Netflix thing is because gamers are angry racist transphobes
NKD: Hello good people, I'd like to talk to you about our good lord and savior: Unions

Yea that's totally it, and not that the angry gamers / nerds are angry because the IPs they love are handed over to be "rebranded" by people that hate everything about said IP in favor of some mega minority demographic that never had initial interest.

This is why all employees need to unionize. You're permanently at a disadvantage against your employer unless you have either a personal team of lawyers, or collective bargaining. Without it all you can really do is stamp your feet, walk out, get fired, and find new work.

The only reason to bring up unions in this context would be if the majority of workers agreed with the trans walkout position, which they do not....

Having watched that Chappelle special, I'm guessing these complaining people did not. And if they did, were unable to absorb the nuances or read between the lines, and ignored the direct statements. I hope it rains on their walkout.


This is what I'm FUCKING HATING about the LGBTQIA2 blah blah community. It's this fucking snowflake bullshit that has developed in the last 10 years. Netflix isn't making enough trans stuff, Netflix won't take down X because I don't understand what the content is (in this case comedy), because I'm offended because of blah blah blah.
Also really sick of LGBTQIA2 blah blah blah's because when I'm gaming with them, and they are called out for being assholes, they use the victim card "Oh you hate me because I'm LGBTQIA2 blah blah blah". No I hate you because you're an asshole.

All we wanted when I came out 30 years ago was to be just like everyone else and treated just like everyone else. This day and age it's a bunch of fucking Karens who think they are owed something because "I identify as X,Y,Z".
