Horrible phrase used by reactionaries to describe tolerance.

Why do you want a ban?

I spend too much time on here and don't have the self-restraint to stay away.

So what if you change your mind mid-way through the 6 months?

The forum likely will not object to me staying away for the entirety of that period Tongue

If you did change your mind, I foresee a bunch of "Free Jake" banners and solidarity avatar changes if Nym didn't unban you.  If he did unban you, what's the point of the ban?

That'd be cool. But what would the avatar be? Just pick whatever you want and have #FreeR2 in the sig?

So cause of this whole tumblr thing y'all are going on about, let me tell you why I hate the song Blurred Lines.

My best friend was raped a few years ago, she never told anyone, she was ashamed and thought that it was her fault, that she triggered the attack and the rape. She was told to be quiet, the rapist told her that "You know you want it, what girl doesn't want to get laid?", she kept yelling for him to stop, but I guess telling someone "no" isn't a clear answer, they must want to have sex with you! In the song he refers to many things her attacker did to her, and the first time she heard the song in the radio, she had a panic attack and started crying uncontrollably, and I asked her what was wrong, and she explained what happened in 2011. Every time she hears the song she has a panic attack remembering what happened, and this song is the reason she has to be reminded of the traumatic event. I love her, she's like my sister, but this song has traumatized her and I don't know why someone would like a song after knowing her, and why it triggers these awful memories.

And she's not the only one, there are millions of women in the United States who have been raped and the song triggers awful memories, and this song is saying women want to have sex, that she really wants it, if she says no she really doesn't mean it, cause the word "no" is ambiguous, and I have nothing but hatred for this song and the terrible men who created it.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about what happened to your friend, and she is incredibly strong for persevering through what happened to her.

A ban will only prevent you from posting -it won't prevent you from lurking.  So either way, you will still be glued to this site. 

Allow me to rephrase: I spend too much time and don't have the self-restraint to stay away primarily because I'm so enthralled by inserting my two sense into every discussion on this site that I find remotely interesting

Plus if I can't post, I'll be encouraged to do other things

Wow, I totally forgot to make a thread. But, since it just became the 28th, I'm not too bugged about it. Regardless, December 27th marked 3 years since I joined this site! I've certainly met some wonderful characters on here (Sawx, Matt, Bacon King, Scott, Winston Disraeli, Snowstalker, Chairmansanchez, Mechaman, Pingvin, TDAS, Cathcon, Tmth, Kalwejt, Goldwater, Sjoyce, Maxwell, Miles, Svensson and many others, to name a few) and I've certainly grown quite a bit since joining.

So yes, my friends, after 3 years of ups and downs, I'd like to thank each and every one of you (except Phil, congrats) for the positive impacts you've made on my life! Assuming Nym does follow through and grant me the six month ban I asked for, I may not be around again until late 2014. But whenever I do return, I hope you'll all be willing to catch me up on everything I missed.

TL;DR, I've been here 3 years and I love you all. Confetti

...except saying that he doesn't need a girl's consent in order to have sex with her. Could you imagine what that might do to a rape victim who just hears the song on the radio? "I know you want it, you're a good girl" is definitely not just a bubbly little lyric in a song, it's something that a rapist says

Oh, really? How do you know this? Have you asked them?

Only on Tumblr, so there's that....

What does it matter where I saw it? Are you going to deny legitimacy of how a rape victim is triggered based on the fact that they have a Tumblr?

No, but it's impossible to take you seriously.

So you're not denying my argument, just discrediting it? Okay.

Maybe I'll make an apology thread and ask for a ban.

That'd be nice.

For financial reasons and admittedly a feeling that I wasn't entirely mentally ready for college, I'm going to a local community college for a year and applying next fall, looking at:

University of Pittsburgh
American University
Duquesne University
George Washington University
Bucknell University

Hate Blurred Lines completely... most Misogynist song I have ever heard... and thought we were in 2013.

Thank you

God, stop being such Liberals. I suppose you hate rap music for that reason too. Robin Thicke has three ways with Paula Patton. Have you f[inks]ing seen Paula Patton? That gives him a free pass to say what ever he wants in any song.

...except saying that he doesn't need a girl's consent in order to have sex with her. Could you imagine what that might do to a rape victim who just hears the song on the radio? "I know you want it, you're a good girl" is definitely not just a bubbly little lyric in a song, it's something that a rapist says. I don't care if it's Robin Thicke or Macklemore (whom I quite enjoy) or even Enter Shikari. Any band or artist that has lyrical content establishing sexual consent as an arbitrary boundary should be condemned.

And rap does have a problem with misogyny, yes. As does Grand Theft Auto 5 (which I just got for Christmas, and I'm appalled at how they just throw around the word 'rape' like it's just a slang word) But the thing about rap and GTA5 is that it's been a fight for years. Robin Thicke was never ever a misogynist, and all of the sudden he releases this song about not needing consent for sex. And I'm not excusing it in rap or GTA5, because it's wrong there too.

Robin Thicke doesn't need to be burned at the stake, he just needs to admit that the content to the song that has net him a f--kton of money is really, really awful.

~EL BUMP~

So I've gotten the opportunity to play both COD:Ghosts and BF4 multiplayer and I must say...Ghosts is preferable. While BF4 is still a lot of fun to play, the Ghosts gameplay is a lot smoother and definitely makes up for its weaknesses (awkward spawning points at times, illogical damage output, etc) with its strengths (vast variety of weapons and killstreak perks, well done maps, field orders, etc)
