Re: Posthuman Studios 'fires' MRA fans and won't have MRA discussion on forums

Isn't that rather disingenuous of you? Are you suggesting that conservative Islam is shitty to women, and might be worthy of being banned, or are you suggesting that the Posthuman Studios folks would ban conservative Muslims from their forum for ideological reasons rather than because they were being shitty to women? Or is there some other thing I'm missing? I hope there's some other thing about your coy hypothetical that I'm missing.
Let me use a specific hypothetical. If a customer from Saudi Arabia posted in their forum that women shouldn't be allowed to drive or go outside without a male escort, would Posthuman 'fire' customers who espoused those views. You can decide for yourself if those beliefs are shitty to women or not.

It depends on how you define 'shitty', which is sort of the point of my question. Also, just to be clear, I find the MRA movement distasteful. My question, however, is geared towards determining what other viewpoints would be banned.
Well, these aren't the Eclipse Phase forums, so I doubt you'll get a useful answer here. Go ask them.

But really, I suspect the answer is "maybe" and also "context matters.". If you try to dress up "be tolerant of my intolerance" as "be tolerant of my intolerant religious views*, or you're discriminating against my religion!" then I imagine it'll be treated the same way. Otherwise genuinely horrible people would be encouraged to play silly little games with the rules.



*I am not saying Islam is intolerant, but it can be interpreted to justify intolerance, like most religions.

Hypotheticals like this are very silly and contribute little to the conversation, because you're waltzing right down the standard path of, 'well, okay, now let me invent an even more specific edge case!'

No. As a potential customer, I am curious about their deeper motivations. Do they just not want obnoxious people who treat women as sex objects or do they reject all people who don't agree with a narrow view of what constitutes equal treatment of women as determined by the American Left. Are Muslims, Christians, pro-lifers, etc. all 'fired' as well?

Let me offer a more likely hypothetical. Are pro-lifers also 'fired' because many Western women consider that viewpoint deeply offensive?

Now you're just being deliberately obtuse. If someone has a problem with the fact that the people running the forums have the pretty unobjectionable policy of 'all people are people are people and should be treated as such, that's on them.

Reminds me of a very worthy post earlier in the thread that you really should have read and paid attention to. "First they came for the MRAs, and I did nothing because I actually don't have a problem with women."

Yeah, that's not a loaded set of questions, nor are they laden with a whole bunch of passive-aggressive assumptions. See also 'concern trolling.'

RationalWiki's Example said:
Equally notorious is Neil Cavuto, who has been known to JAQ off with lines like "Have the Democrats Forgotten the Lessons of 9/11?" or "Is the Liberal Media Helping to Fuel Terror?" Jon Stewart gave a name not to the concept of JAQing off but to what might elsewhere be known as a question mark: the "Cavuto Mark."[8] Stewart subsequently "just asked" if Cavuto's mother was a whore. Not that he meant anything by it. Obviously.
That is literally what just happened here.

What makes you think that they have a narrow view of equal treatment of women as determined by the American Left?
