I'm not heavily invested in US politics, but I hope the riots quell soon.
I think people in general have no problem with men who are MGTOW.
If they don't want to be in a relationship and have children, that's their right.
What I agree on is that MGTOWs will continue to be ridiculed by the rest of society if they continue to bash all women every day on the internet. They don't need to go that far if they're happy with their lifestyle.
It just makes MGTOW look insane.

Well I guess I will treat these guys the same I would treat any other person.. If they are an asshole they are getting the ignore treatment. Won't try to remember whatever letters or barcode numbers. You could be a LMNOP and i wouldn't care just be a decent person and that will be more than enough .
Oh also regarding the so-dreaded "twitch females of dubious morals"and all that... My stance is usually, it is the viewer's fault that he has no idea how to open a new tab and go to popcornhub. If I want to stream my socks drying into the sun, nobody should have any right to commend me, as long as I respect the site's rules.
Ok now new term... What the heck is simping? i am in the same boat as @MidnightDragon, so many new terms... I use net only for games and youtube funny stuff
While I'm perfectly fine with being single & never having kids, I don't think I'd want to be associated with that group... I seen some pretty messed up stuff when I just did a search on them ( @MidnightDragon yeah, I had to search for the term too). 😅
@Copanele Now I have heard the term "simping" before, mostly from a youtuber I recently started watching (Nux Taku). Basically from what I understand, I think it's when a guy showers a girl with praise, attention, gifts, etc... hoping to get something out of it. It can be applied to more than just women though, here's one of his videos he made about it. 😂
I beat the hardest optional boss in Cold Steel 2.
Not long to go until I plat the game.
With all due respect, if these youtubers like The Quartering dislike women, that's fine.
But why make numerous videos about one female individual you think is a bitch? It just seems obsessive.
If you don't like twitch girls, etc, then don't watch their content. It's easy for pretty chicks to garner a lot of traffic. Blame the horny men for giving them money, not the hustlers themselves.
The MGTOW and red pill routine of bashing every chick online is getting old.
I unsubbed from The Quartering because of things like this. I felt he was just chasing views, though that conclusion might not be entirely fair.
If a merchant turns up to your house and offers to sell you poison and you accept, the blame is sure as shit on you, I agree. The merchant should be called out for it and exposed as a corruptive twat I feel, but if you enable them then you are more of a problem than they could ever be. They couldn't run their business without you.
A lot of people focus on others that they forget that the real problem might be themselves.
I'll close this by saying that MGTOW are fucking pathetic excuses for men.
Twitch girls like Pokimane only get away with their parasitic behaviour because of stupid male gamers giving them money. She might be a horrible bitch (I don't know because I don't watch her), but it's your fault for giving some stranger your money because she gives you a stiffy.
I platted Trails of Cold Steel. That makes 118 plats in total.
Cold Steel 3 has been ordered.
Trails of Cold Steel II is waaay over the top during the last part of the game... but in a good way.
Got me hyped for part 3 and 4 of Cold Steel now.
There are lots of UK citizens taking advantage of the beautiful weather in defiance of the lockdown.
I called it. I knew it'd be a waste of time without martial law.
I heard from friends about the drama surrounding Last of Us 2.
Last I checked, the series was about a fungal infection, not gender politics.
I’ll be giving this game a miss.

Honestly, I don't mind politics sprinkled in games. Everything else gets brought up in games of all kinds.
I'll grant that some of those messages can get a bit ham fisted, but at the same time, put aside being attacked for a minute and listen to the message. Growth can only happen when we look within ourselves critically. I'm definitely not the most perfect person.
Also, heard mention of Life is Strange 2 and a few others. If racism in games bothers you that much, maybe try to understand it from the other side. If you're slightly uncomfortable because you feel like you're being called out, just imagine how people that deal with vulgar hateful racism directed them feel. It's called awareness for a reason.
Can we not use overused buzzwords? SJW is so overused, it's a bucket of cringe every time it's brought out. Present an argument that gives logical points instead of just "oh, I hate political statements because they secretly make me uncomfortable".
** I'm definately not the most perfect person, but if I can acknowledge I did wrong or I'm not seeing the whole picture clearly, I can grow into a better person. Being aware of differences is not a weakness or annoyance, but a chance to learn and grow.
@Spaz @MidnightDragon Indeed, I have. I prioritised on real life matters. I have friends who kept me informed on the recent news of The Last of Us 2.
I don't care about homosexual characters. Vamp from Metal Gear Solid 2 was a bisexual assassin. That didn't stop me from playing the game.
I don't like games that are enforcing real life political agendas about how Christians are horrible (I'm not a religious practitioner, btw), and I don't care about the gender binary rubbish.
Although I don't bother with anti-sjw communities, I do see where they're coming from with this agenda stuff.
I'll vote with my money by not purchasing this game. This is the only time I'll make a main post about it.
You put in a constructive reasoning, which is more than I can say for a majority who whined and complained once they saw the leaked footage in The Last of Us Part II.
I think however that a lot of mud slinging towards Naughty Dog is rather depressing. 10 years ago they were perhaps the most respected gaming company out there, nowadays they are just another target for people to hate them.
I saw the Cold Steel III voice actor conference on youtube. The voice actor of Sara is fucking hilarious.
I'm hooked on the story of Cold Steel II. The plat can take a backseat. I'm playing it blind for fun.
I really like Trails of Cold Steel. I ordered the first sequel not long ago. It's a good game from the Legend of Heroes series, which I have very little knowledge and experience of. I know it began as a spin off from Falcom's Dragon Slayer series, though.
Today's generation don't care about the significance of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day).
Just calling it as I see it.
Unless it's the next anime-themed video game with transformations and special powers, most of them do not care about real-life heroes and inspirations.
I like the ignore features in many online fora.
I never understood the stigma of not giving arseholes a platform to insult you. “But mah free speech, man!”
Nah, I go online to enjoy myself, not to experience negativity.
If you can’t show basic respect to strangers, why should they care about you and what you have to say?
Again, I never understood this subliminal code that you have to deal with trolls to show how tough you are online. You don’t owe these people anything. They are strangers.
