I see where you are coming from, except I really can't see any reason other than white knighting to only have a problem with this particular topic.

There are racist bigots, people who really go after fat people in public, and even people who exploit people in need, but I still don't see why that should stop us from joking about it.

To be honest, as pointed out before I'm not really sure what it is, something just feels different about it you know? I mean I'm sure there's some folks who feel something is different about the race posts, obesity posts, after all we're not all the same, FJ is not some interlinked hive mind, we do not gather consensus that's going to lead to a diversity of opinions.

Not that anything is wrong with differing opinions within the community, if we all had the exact same opinion on topics it'd be a pretty boring place, People will always disagree, it's important that such things happen because it opens up the means to productive conversation and compromise

If we were going after a user on here because of her appearance, I could understand you, but we are literally just making a joke about a stereotype, exactly like we do with racism. The comparison to ogres are obviously also a hint to their weight, and obesity does make you ugly, so again, it's actually just another form of fat shaming.

You are white knighting, and you don't even know it

Ehh, I'd still argue that something about this feels different you know? Still, to each they're own, also, maybe you could make use of this picture?

I just think there seems to be some level of I don't know obsession within the community about lassies and games, be they traditional games or video games, be the obsession the glorification or the disdain of lassies gaming, and when I say this community I mean gamers as a whole.



e.g. A couple lassies I know play magic the gathering with me, we can't play publically without having people float around them generally being annoying because "It's a girl!" Don't get me wrong, these are the assholes within the gamer community just like lassies who use men as their demons through their self inflicted purgatorio claiming men make games sexist are assholes on the other end of the spectrum. I don't know......watchdogs looked pretty cool?

Yeah, I get what you are saying, but we have no problem with fat shaming, racism or making fun of cancer, poverty and hunger, but suddenly it's a big no-go to go after gamer girls for the remaining 25%
User avatar #190 - mcwkennedy (05/21/2015) [-]
The difference there is, we might do that but lets face it, we never really mean it. When someone on this site admits they've had legit cancer does everyone mock them? No, we flock to their aid. Racism? Let's face it, we're not really a bunch of racists, it's a joke. Poverty and hunger? To be honest I've nothing here. Finally with fat shaming, people are fat for their own fault, how someone looks isn't their choice.



When it comes to the lassies gaming thing though something doesn't feel right, the usual air of laughter isn't there, it doesn't feel like a joke it feels real like just because a girl plays video games we're going to band together and mock them. It feels different you know? That being said, it could just be because pretty much every lass that I hang out with plays some form of video game.
