    Do you really think that's what a discussion about racism and ant-Semitism in gaming needs? To be taken even less seriously?
    I think the less time we spend thinking about PDP, and the more time we spend thinking about Jet from Gladiators, the better.

    You're right. This thread should be about Panther, really.

    With all due respect, who are you to decide that conversation isn't a valid one?

    If Jet was racist we'd forgive her anyway. At least she'd never run away with a Ni....er...nice guy...yeah...nice guy

    Yep... this.

    Threads with scantily clad women aren't hard to come buy on the web. A thread on a dedicated gaming forum where the moronic non-arguments of the "Slip of the tongue" crowd gets the dress down they deserve, less so.

    Yes, for sure. But it's not just about poodlepie being a fuckhead though. It's about the circles around him that desperately need to think more about what asshats they are and less about fap material from the 90's.

    As I said, it would appear than any attempts at discussing racism and gaming culture was very uncomfortable for some. Just as it was with sexism and gaming.

    I'd also like to add that I'm flattered to have a thread dedicated to me.

    I'm not sure if it's an uncomfortable discussion on this forum. For one I do think it's an issue, but shit there's race problems in many of my hobbies, football for instance has a massive race problem which I don't think has been dealt with in any acceptable way. Gaming has issues with many isms because it turns out that shit people have hobbies too. However I think we can all agree that PDP is a proper cunt regardless of the 'it's all bantz' stance.

    So any more Jet?

    I'm a bit shocked that so much discussion is required, tbh. It's a simple issue for me: don't be racist, don't be sexist, and don't tolerate people who are. Once you encounter someone who acts like that, there are two tacts you can take: exert some energy in trying to convince them to change, or failing that, cut them out of your life, encourage other people to do the same, and don't grant them any oxygen to succeed in life.

    Well good for you, but in case you haven't noticed the "cut them out of your life and ignore them" tactic hasn't worked. If anything it helped make things worse.

    Have you ever been a victim of sexism, racism or homophobia?

    I'm inclined to agree, however it is troubling that when people, who have quite a young fan base, say something racist or equally shit the aplogism from said fan base is of a troublingly high level.

    No, he's advocating suffocating then.
