I'm feeling older and more coordinated than back then but without need to lose love of certain beautiful things of childhood.

Y'know the "Rule 0"… Right? Just reminding without pointing fingers. Spirit of the site and all that. Yeah I'm watching, nobody replied to my more recent comment at least up to now.

You don't get it, do you. You make a broad claims without backing them up by any evidence, deliberately misrepresenting the people who disagree with you.if I didn't know any better, I'd say you were strawmanning them.

Also, autism is not an insult.

Are you taking my usage of autistic screeching as a euphemism for all expressions of disagreement? It wasn’t. While there is reasoned, if spirited, interaction between them there is rarely more than two people on the “it’s shit now” side who devolve into frothing retards, whereas there is always at least two people on the “it’s still good” side who do the same. It’s to be expected, really; people who like where the show has gone are considerably more likely to still be involved in the fandom. In all probability there are more screeching autists per capita on the “it’s shit now” side but there are more screeching autists total on the “it’s still good” side.

(Autistic screeching isn’t walls of text—though that can still be called autistic—usage of profanity, or even taking the occasional potshot at another; it’s when one’s argument consists almost entirely of barely coherent positions scuppered by logical fallacies unrelentingly screamed at the highest volume.)

Also doesn’t stop people straw manning anybody who views what came after she left unfavourably. Or people whipping out tired old thought terminating clichés of “it’s just a toy commercial cleverly disguised as a cartoon!” or “it’s for little girls!” Any opinion more nuanced than “the show’s still enjoyable” gets shat on to some degree, true, but only people who think the show has generally declined in quality get shut down by autistic screeching. The irony is palpable; the nitpicky fuckers who think the show’s generally declined in quality probably are autistic and yet it’s the normies triggered by insistent dissent that do most of the screeching.

@Ihhh
They probably would have edited a few of the older episodes to make it more PC. Like removing Shining Armor's magic barrier and letting in the Changeling because that would be racist if they didn't ;)

I didn't remember all the details when writing that, perhaps stupidly as I may have only recalled select details (not paying a lot of attention to all of it back then) I admit and I had forgotten the man cried over it. Not trying to be an imbecile here, I just assumed (right, wonderful way to make a mistake) Lauren's intent was lost in translation from English to English and she wasn't trying to get tears out of it. Misunderstandings have happened easily with only text to go by. What was the initial tweet? I recall reading something that may have shown up after the initial tweet, what I read (and I don't think it was a tweet) was written for defending her stance or saying "I don't like the shirt" (more or less) then ending with something like "Holy shep. We landed on a meteorite."

… Oh where did I read this? Right, possibly in the comments section to the Fury Belle comic based on the whole thing.

If this were an isolated incident and her initial tweet was all you had to go on you might have a leg to stand on. That isn’t the case. Feminists, including Lauren, dog-piled the poor bastard, harassing him until he broke down in tears. Later she had the gall to say it was nice of him for his “unprompted apology”, as if she didn’t play a part in prompting it. When the hypocrisy was pointed out Lauren excused this because “sexual objectification is bullying,” i.e., ‘he started it!’

The shirt was made by a woman, not that that matters. The guy wore it to honour her. Not that that matters, either. One of the scientists responsible for landing the probe was a woman, not that Lauren could give a fuck about the dearth of coverage on her. What caught her attention was a shirt with attractive women on it being worn by a man, and ultimately, that’s all that did matter to her. (Hardly surprising, whenever feminists aren’t crusading for their right to express their sexuality they’re either hypocritically demonising other women for expressing theirs or demonising men for having one at all.)

"Shirtgate" was when a man in a spacecraft landed on a meteorite if I recall right. Lauren wasn't THAT harsh, she in short was amazed by it but didn't like the girls in bikinis kind of shirt the man was wearing… Which was made by a woman according to what I heard… But I feel as though Lauren's words were misconstrued.
