Not to mention that in many ways, the white dude being the villain is actually kind of realistic. White dudes bomb the middle east and funded terrorist organsiations(while using them as further reason to bomb the middle east). White dudes caused the global economic crash. White dudes are enforcing austerity across europe. White dudes colonised most of the world. White dudes are most often in positions of power, and generally when it comes to villains especially in Cyberpunk type settings that's what we go for.
I am grateful for this display of anti-White racism that supports my original assumption that the negative portrayal of White males throughout the series is a deliberate bias meant to instill feelings of hatred and paranoia against them.
But this assertion that white males are somehow under attack in the game is really bizarre. And I really don't think that's something most people are seeing in this game2
This is an empty declarative statement, which can be appended to just about anything you find subjectively intolerable. It's not how a discussion works. I have supported my argument by presenting the majority of positive and negative major and secondary characters from every game in the series released up to this date. My detractors have only succeeded in bringing up extremely minor characters with little screen time that no longer participate in the story, or falsely referred to some of the characters I mentioned as White, despite ample evidence to the contrary.
Medieval corrupt church politicians may have found the idea of the Earth revolving around the Sun bizarre, but it did nothing to change reality. Neither did their pointed refusal to examine Galileo's arguments in support of his theory, or their attempts to silence him.
Freedom of speech protects you from the government jailing you for speaking your mind
This is a legal fallacy recently popularized by the sensationalist sector of the internet that ripped a few clauses from the US COnstitution and pretended they are somehow the be-all end-all definition of freedom of speech. Here's an extract from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers
This applies to all parties, both governmental and private. The same clause is found in the basic laws of just about any country that strives to uphold the principles of freedom. Once again: being a private forum does not give you the right to arbitrarily censor and taboo terms based on anyone's subjective dislike or paranoia.
Really about our only strict rule is that we don't tolerate personal attacks and throwing pejoratives at people.
That's good, because SJW is neither a personal insult, nor a pejorative. It can be used as such, but then again, so can any other word or term.
I find it bizarre and objectionable that a moderator of this forum is leaving off-topic messages with nary a single word relating to the topic of the thread, and provoking flame wars by making baseless accusations. I do not intend to respond to any further attacks that have nothing to do with to Dreamfall Chapters, be it the stifling policies of this forum, or discussions on human rights.
