And now she'll get terribly offended, say that we're so very mean, and that everyone should just tolerate the Nazis, because Antifa is totally just as bad, just look at this tweet! Or this reddit post! Or this Tumblr rambling!

When it comes down to it, she's a moderate who is pissed that people dare not try and be as moderate as her - a waffling, obsessively centrist milquetoast.

This is the best response I've seen to the "WHY DOES IT HAVE WOMZ" idiocy.

People complain about realism in a game series which is most famous for the ability to jump out of a fighter plane, kill the pilot of another plane with a sniper rifle (while you are in free fall) and get into the cockpit of the now empty (because the dead pilot somehow falls OUT of the plane) enemy aircraft and continue flying with it.

...But all that is fine while women aren't.

Meanwhile, the trailer also had European soldiers with katanas(?!), personalized clothing that violates all kinds of uniform codes and all kinds of physics defying bullshit that makes it clear that this is obviously not a serious historical simulation but the only other complaint I've seen was about the prosthetic arm on one of the female soldiers...

Almost as if the complainers only care about keeping girls out of their secret club...

So some people are already whinging about the Next Battlefield game having a woman in it when it's set in WWII. Apparently all the female Soviet front line troops who fought and died, as well as the countless female resistance fighters and spies who led many of the resistance efforts, and were tortured and executed for their trouble, don't deserve to be represented or acknowledge in any way coz they've got the "wrong" genitals. They made the ultimate sacrifice but fuck 'em; if they wanted recognition they should have thought about that before they decided to not have a penis.

The woman in the trailer does seem to have an English accent yes it is true Britain did not sent women to fight on the front lines they did use female spies who led resistance units - and by led I don't mean gave orders from their nice safe hiding place miles form the action, they actively took part in resistance activities.  One such woman was Violette Szabo, who was French but she was raised in England and would likely have had an English accent.  I suspect this character is either inspired by her or another woman like her.

Besides, with the almost never ending list of inaccuracies in these games why single out the presence of women (which as I've said isn't even an inaccuracy)? Me thinks some people need to check their insecurities.

No need. Using follow with notifications turned on.

No, but I am talking about for purposes of talking to each other and strategizing.

But you seem to believe that I hold the position I do because I hold alt-right sympathies. I do not, as I have repeatedly explained.

Actions speak louder then words. 

You are constantly making a thing about defending the free speech of alt-righters, frequently in situations where they aren't actually losing them.  But you never seem to care about alt-righters being violent or suppressing free speech unless we raise the matter.  Hell I once asked you if sending death threats to feminists was censorship and you seriously tried to weasel out of answering, saying their were "subtle nuances" on the issue.

I think you have alt-right sympathies because of your double standards, not because you disagree.  If you acted as someone who was against violence and censorship in general I wouldn't think that.

I started a thread about an eight-year-old boy getting lynched by alt-rightists. A thread where I pointed out that hate speech laws can hurt more than just the alt-right. You were saying?
