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.
Yo, this is a really dumb question. "Women can't drive" isn't an inherent view of Saudis, hateful stuff is inherent in MRA rhetoric.

What makes you think that they have a narrow view of equal treatment of women as determined by the American Left?
I don't know. That is why I am asking. The incident reminded me of this statement, which is why I raised the point in the first place.

Governor of New York
"Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are."

Does Posthuman share the Governor's view or are they just 'firing' people who treat women as sex objects?

Just to reiterate, I think MRA is twisted in a lot of ways and it isn't a conservative viewpoint but people with religious beliefs or conservative beliefs are often treated in this manner by people who claim to be tolerant of differing views.

Oh hell..

Look, if you have a viewpoint that says "these people should have less rights than other people, because they were born different", then whatcha got there is intolerance. I don't care where you got it from - culture, religion a vision quest in the Ozarks, whatever. It's demonstrably harmful, and that's why it's unacceptable.

Also, the forums you're looking for, if you actually want these questions answered, are over here. http://eclipsephase.com/forum

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?
As a potential customer, I am curious about their deeper motivations.
OK, so #2 then.

Oh no! It's gone recursive!

Or

Could it be that Will is just asking questions in an attempt to further illustrate the point?

I couldn't decide which, so I went with both. Which joke did I make?
You decide.

You decide.
Was it a joke, or are you supporting terrorism? When did you stop beating your wife/dog/car/random bag of aluminum cans?

I'm just asking because I want to know your motivations here.

If you don't think it's conservative then you shouldn't worry that it's the first step to mass-bannings of christians and conservatives. Glad we solved that problem!

Let me offer a more likely hypothetical. Are pro-lifers also 'fired' because many Western women consider that viewpoint deeply offensive?
Enough already. If you want to poke at another forum, go there and ask them. The sideways digs at muslims et al aren't welcome either.

Leave the thread.

Why are you asking someone else what causes you to think something? And if you don't think that, why are you asking the questions you're asking at all?

EDIT: Wups, cross-posted with red text. Sorry!
