A masterpost on Togashi’s gay subtext and why it’s intentional.

2020.07.21 10:08 swarla A masterpost on Togashi’s gay subtext and why it’s intentional.

To preface this, I did not write this amazing analysis. All credit goes to telehxhtrash. I just transferred it to reddit format. Now to the actual post:
I usually see a lot of people trying to say that HxH isn’t about romance and that Togashi isn’t interested in writing romance into the manga, but when you analyze all the subtext that’s been going on the further Gon and Killua’s relationship progresses, I think it’s incorrect to say that Togashi has never hinted at the possibility of romance in HxH.
This is going to be a long post, enjoy your read!
Also, please note that I will only base this analysis on the manga, so there can be no mistake that “maybe this is just something the anime made gayer” : i want to prove that the subtext is 100% intentional on Togashi’s part.
I’d also like to mention, although I will analyze it further after listing the subtext, that Togashi is a VERY smart man. There’s always little details in the story and/or foreshadowing that are easily missed at first but when you notice them, it truly makes you understand how much attention and care Togashi puts into his work. The examples that talk to me the most, are the fact that Kite, having been killed by Pitou (a cat-liked chimera ant) was reborn with a mouse-like tail (Togashi is such a troll), and also the fact that Kurapika’s ties to the DC were hinted as far as in Yorknew Arc, where you can see him rocking his Kurta outfit with a Mobius stripe on it. Ofc, there are more examples, but I won’t dwell on it. In short, Togashi loves to foreshadow and plant little details into his work, so when Togashi plants subtext, I’m sure he 100% knows that he’s writing it, and it can’t be seen as unintentional.
I’ll also link all my references for this post at the end of it, so feel free to read all the additional textposts and content if you want to know more.
Well, let’s get into it!
GREED ISLAND ARC
Greed Island is to me, the arc that lays down the nature of Killua and Gon’s relationship. It’s during this arc that we get to see a bit more of what Killua thinks, how he’s lucky to have met Gon and that he feels really grateful. While the scene where Killua thinks “You’ve got it backwards, Gon, I’m the one that’s glad I met you.” can’t be considered as subtext, I think it’s something that lets the reader know a bit more about how Killua feels towards Gon.
But other than this scene, which can clearly be dismissed as platonic, there are 2 more moments in the Greed Island arc that are layered in subtext.
• The Rainbow Diamond (chapter 151)
During their time in Dorias (i think, please correct me if I’m wrong), Killua uses (and becomes addicted to) Risky Dice to gain cards from the slot machines. The first card that Killua gains is called “Rainbow Diamond”, the description of the card being “A diamond that shines in a rainbow of colors. Propose with this diamond and she is guaranteed to say "yes”“.
There are 3 different things we can take from this panel. First, the card is a marriage proposal card, so it’s obviously romantic in nature. Second, the object is a RAINBOW (hint hint) diamond. And third, Killua, wanting to keep the card safe, gifts it to Gon.
In short, Togashi sat down at his desk, decided to draw Killua winning a MARRIAGE PROPOSAL CARD (it could’ve been any card but nope, it had to be marriage proposal) that has a RAINBOW diamond on it and made Killua gift it to Gon. Yup, 100% unintentional subtext right there. No way Togashi could’ve EVER possibly known how this could be interpreted. He couldn’t have made Killua win another random card, nope. While I personally don’t think that subtext can be used to 100% ascert that Killua has romantic feelings for Gon, I think it’s a funny little touch from Togashi, and I’m even gonna say a sort of hint towards how Killua’s feelings for Gon are going to evolve in this arc and the next.
• “It has to be Killua” (chapter 166)
Now this is a scene that I’ve never seen anyone talk about, at least on Tumblr, but when I read a bit of analysis on it I was 100% convinced this was intentional subtext. I’m basically quoting here what this article explains, so if you want more detail, I recommend reading it.
As you probably recall, during their deadly dodgeball game against Razor, Killua decides to sacrifice his hands to insure that Gon could use all his strength. When confronted about it, Killua insists that it’s nothing, and Gon shocks him by saying that he knew all along that he was hurting himself for his sake.
Gon then says that it can only be Killua holding the ball, and that it has to be Killua, resulting in Killua being absolutely awestruck and embarassed. I’m also going to talk about the anime adaptation for this one, because it’s perfectly executed and translates extremely well the nuance that the second sentence bears. If you want to rewatch it, this scene happens in episode 70. It’s worth noting that in the anime, we see Killua not reacting to Gon’s first sentence, but losing his composure entirely when Gon says the second sentence. But why ? The reason was lost in translation. His exact words are ”Booru wa Killua ga motte-kurenai to. Killua ja nakya dame nan da.“. Both sentences basically say the same thing : It has to be Killua holding the ball. That second sentence can be translated literally as "If it’s not Killua, that won’t do.” However, the second sentence, in a different context, can also be used to say a totally different thing.
While it’s certain that Gon used this sentence in the context of the dodgeball match, the sentence “~ja nakya dame nan da” also serves as a confession of one’s feelings in japanese. It’s basically the equivalent to “you’re the one for me”. When you google the sentence, it turns up romantic songs, forum posts asking what it would translate to in English and posts on how to confess to someone.
The sentence basically drowns in romantic subtext.
As mentioned before, Killua has no reaction to the first sentence “Booru wa Killua ga motte-kurenai to.”, but loses his composure at the second one, and I think that was a very deliberate thing Togashi wanted to convey : this sentence has an additional layer, and clearly Killua is taking it to heart.
I will come back to this specific subtext in a bit, because we can parallel it with another subtext-y situation, so please keep it in mind for now.
CHIMERA ANT ARC
Now onto the sad gay arc! This arc is so RIDDLED in subtext and parallels that it’s making me lose my mind. I’ll only analyze the subtext for this post, but I’m thinking about writing a meta post on the different parallels that the arc draws later on.
• Gon, you are light. (chapter 199)
There’s literally no hetero explanation for this scene. There’s just none. I don’t know what kind of gay juice Togashi was sipping when he wrote this panel but I want some too, please. So many people dismiss it as platonic, so I’m gonna add my take on it, because to me, this is the exact moment that Killua realized he had a bit more feelings towards Gon than normal bro feelings. It’s extremely important to take the context of this scene into account. What happened is that Killua, who has been struggling mentally for the entire series with the fact that he’s always running away, ran away once more, leaving Kite to die with Pitou. This ENTIRE chapter is literally adults absolutely DESTROYING Killua, first Kite’s troupe bashing him for leaving Kite behind, and then Netero, Morel and Knov coming in like icing on the cake telling Killua that “After all, he’s just a kid”, and that he should hurry up to his mommy.
So let’s recap : Killua is beating himself up for running away again, got destroyed by Kite’s team and 3 extremely strong pro hunters. His morale is down in the drains right now. He expects Gon to be mad at him for betraying Kite, for running away once again, for leaving Kite to die alone and ripping Gon away from Kite : in short, he expects that he’ll lose Gon for his cowardice.
HOWEVER, the first thing that Gon says to Killua after having been passed out for god knows how many hours is “Thank you”. Gon woke up and instantly eased up all of Killua’s fears : he wasn’t a loser for running away, and Gon was actually thankful for him. Gon, at this moment, was the only one that showed kindness, understanding and gratefulness towards Killua. Gon even goes so far as saying that he knows that Kite isn’t dead, and that they have to help him. At this instant, Gon is truly Killua’s saving grace. He’s the one that trusts him with his entire heart, and believes in his choices when even he can’t believe in himself. At this moment, Gon is truly Killua’s light, because he supported him in this awful situation.
This whole scene is drowning in gay subtext (comparing ur bro to light itself? no homo), but people dismiss it as normal bro behavior, so with that in mind I’m going to pair it with the next subtext to prove that Togashi INTENDED on telling the audience that this moment was crucial to understand Killua’s feelings.
• Introduction to Palm’s character (chapter 200)
This one is very very easy to miss but it’s one of the most important subtext-y scene, because it’s basically Togashi telling you “Maybe I wasn’t clear enough, but last chapter was gay. very gay. no heteros allowed in my manga.”.
Basically, this chapter introduces Palm’s character (which, imo, is a character introduced for the sole intent of being a catalyst to Killua’s feelings towards Gon, but I’ll talk about it in my post talking about the CAA parallels).
So, Killua having looked into Gon’s eyes for like 10min straight and concluded that Gon was the light of his life a chapter ago, is now chilling with Gon as they meet Palm.
Palm takes them to a café and STRAIGHT OFF THE BAT harasses them about how much she’s in love with Knov. Like when I say harassing, it’s literally a whole page of her explaining her feelings towards Knov.
There are two interesting things that can be drawn from this interaction.
First, it’s extremely easy to draw parallels between Palm’s situation towards Knov and Killua’s situation towards Gon. Palm starts by saying how amazing her master is, that she probably has special feelings for him but the most important thing is to respect the other person. She then goes on to say that she hasn’t said anything to Knov, and never will (reminds you of a special someone with white hair?). All of this adds nothing to the story, it’s empty dialogue, Togashi could’ve introduced Palm in any other way possible, but he chose to drag her and the gay duo to a café and make her have a monologue about love after the extremely emotional panel of Killua declaring that Gon is his light just a chapter ago. But there’s more. Not only does Palm monologue for a while about love, but after finishing her monologue, this happens :
This panel features ONLY Palm and Killua, her looking at him like the psycho she is, and straight up telling him that “love can suddenly spark out of nowhere, don’t you think so?”.
What’s so interesting about this is the fact that Togashi made the deliberate choice to have Palm say this to Killua and Killua ONLY, which after the gay existential crisis he had last chapter, can very much be applied to his situation. Love DID spark out of nowhere, and Togashi wants you to notice. Togashi could’ve made Palm say this to herself, with no distinct listener like the last panel, but he made the conscious choice to draw this panel with Palm adressing herself to Killua SPECIFICALLY. At this point he could’ve just dressed up killua in a “I am gay” shirt and made him dye his hair in rainbow colors and it would’ve been the same thing.
Those two subtexts, who fit perfectly together, make me believe 100% that Togashi knows what he’s doing and he’s not unintentionally planting homoerotic situations in his work. The fact that Togashi sat at his desk, drew Killua calling Gon his light, and then followed this scene with the introduction to a character who picks Killua apart to tell him that “love is something that just happens, don’t you think?” is 100% proof that Togashi knows what he’s doing.
• Date with Palm (chapters 217 and 218)
I think this situation has many layers, but many people still dismiss it as bro behavior so I’m gonna try my best to counter argue. First of all, and although that’s not proof of anything, Killua looks EXTREMELY distressed by the prospect of Gon going on a date with Palm, but that can be counter-argued by saying that Killua is just worried because Palm is completely crazy.
What I want to talk about is the scene that happens right after, when Gon and Killua go to the gym (because theyre DUDES YEAH WE WORK OUT NO HOMO), and the conversation casually drifts to Killua asking Gon if he’s ever been on a date before, valid question considering what just happened previously. There are multiple things here :
1) Killua seems distressed that Gon has been on dates before. While it can be argued that it’s a normal reaction because Gon has and he hasn’t, I believe that Killua - who is in no way a normal person who would get flustered about “not having been on dates before a certain age” - would not feel uncomfortable that his friend is more experienced than him.
2) Gon then proceeds to ask Killua if he’s ever been on a date, to which Killua responds:
What I want to highlight is the panel where Killua says “And the truth is, I want to stay by your side… Always…”. Basically, what Killua is saying, is that he doesn’t care about dates, all he wants to do is be with Gon.
I don’t think this can be counter-argued as bro behavior, but with all the subtext I’ve explained before, this right here is a big pile of homo. Togashi put this panel deliberately to show that Killua doesn’t give a crap about dates when he can stay with Gon, and with the “gon you are light” scene and everything in mind I think this is another intentional subtext.
There’s also the fact that Killua stalks the date like a jealous girlfriend - but I’m not gonna count that as subtext because it can be argued that he’s just worried about Gon because Palm is insane.
• Gon is my best friend ! (chapter 219)
Remember how I told you to keep the “It has to be Killua” subtext in mind because I was gonna come back to it later ? Well, let’s go ! During Palm’s date with Gon, Killua runs into Rammot, who would definitely have ran into Palm and nenless Gon. Killua is forced to confront his worst fear : this is the moment where he knows that if he runs away again, Gon WILL die. Killua is literally overcoming his “programming” out of love and care for Gon, he’s ripping out the needle from his forehead out of pure, genuine care for Gon, because if he doesn’t, then he’ll lose him forever.
Now, what I actually wanna talk about is this panel.
What we see is Killua thinking happy thoughts about all his adventures with Gon because he can’t - won’t - doesn’t want to run away anymore, and all this for his sake. But what I wanna draw attention to is the dodgeball panel that’s bigger than all the others, and the only one where you can actually clearly make out what’s written : “Killua ja nakya dame nan da”.
Now, isn’t that interesting that the panel that takes a bigger place in the whole panel is the one with this particular sentence? Remember what I talked about a bit earlier, about how “~ ja nakya dame nan da” is a sentence with a lot of romantic connotations (would pretty much equal to “you’re the one for me” in English). Clearly this particular sentence stuck with Killua.
I’m not completely objective on this matter since I firmly believe that at this point, Killua has romantic feelings for Gon, but I interpret this as another deliberate thing Togashi did : putting the panel bigger so we can see that it has a particularly significant importance to Killua, and Killua’s state of mind right now (not wanting to lose Gon).
In my opinion, two things happened here: One, Killua remembers this specific interaction because he knows how much Gon trusts him and he doesn’t want to betray his trust. But I also firmly believe that Killua remembered this specific interaction because of the romantic connotation the sentence “Killua ja nakya dame nan da” has.
Those words clearly shocked him, and I think he remembers them in this life-threatening situation, after the “gon you are light” scene, Palm talking about “love just happens”, the “i want to stay with you, always” because he realizes that he wishes Gon would say that sentence in a romantic context, and not in the context of the dodgeball match, thus leading him to surpass himself to prove his love and perhaps live to see the day where Gon could say those words in that context.
Now, of course, all of this is my interpretation, so it’s really up to debate, but I really wanna highlight the fact that Togashi deliberately CHOSE to highlight this particular interaction between Gon and Killua, this sentence with romantic subtext, to lead Killua to finally break his chains and be able to be protect Gon fully. Also let’s quickly mention the irony in the situation here : while Gon is on a romantic date, Killua fights to protect him, overcoming his weakness to prove his love. I definitely think this is a subtle but intentional parallel from Togashi.
• A lover’s suicide (chapter 286)
Now, onto the most important piece of subtext, that can not be counterargued as platonic in any way, shape or form. During the palace invasion, Killua leaves Gon’s side, proceeds to go kick Youpi’s butt only to have to fall back because he used up all his electricity nen. When Killua is charging up, he meets with Meleoron, and tells him that once he’s done charging, he’ll go back to Gon’s side.
They briefly exchange information about the battle, and then Meleoron proceeds to ask Killua what’s the plan for him and Gon. That’s when Killua explains that “Once Gon is like this, he won’t budge an inch. Worst case scenario, it’ll be a double suicide.”. Ok, at worst they both die, cool. But nope, that’s not only it.
The specific word that Killua uses for double suicide is “心中” (shinjuu), which is a heavily romantically connotated word in japanese. Shinjuu, also translated as “lover’s suicide”, is when two people die out of love, by the same method, because there’s a belief that this’ll allow those two people to spend eternity together. Shinjuu is a major theme of Japanese literature, and it is always used romantically. It’s a very uncommon word to use to refer to two people dying together, because of its heavy romantic connotation, and because it always refers to double suicide committed by people bound by love. If you want to read more on shinjuu, i suggest this and this, those articles explain its historic roots and the definition, also emphasizing the feeling of “oneness” that characterizes shinjuu.
So basically, what Killua is saying is that he wants to go back to Gon’s side to die with him, committing a “lover’s suicide” because he doesn’t want to leave Gon to die alone. I also want to emphasize how special this word is to Killua, and that he and everyone around him know the special meaning of this word - In chapter 300, Ikalgo literally says “We were… No, KILLUA was ready to commit shinjuu with Gon”. Ikalgo is really highlighting the fact that this word holds special meaning, especially to Killua, and that it was HIM who was willing to commit shinjuu by staying with Gon. Ikalgo and company dying with Gon wouldn’t be shinjuu, but Killua dying with Gon would be, and Togashi emphasizes this through Ikalgo’s thoughts.
This is pretty much the gist of it, but I suggest reading the wonderful post I linked in the references below if you want to know more about this specific subtext.
• “The one that Gon needs the most is you” (chapter 294)
I will go into this subtext more in details when I write the post about parallels in CAA, but I still want to talk about it briefly here.
Like I said before, to me, Palm was introduced as a catalyst for Killua’s feelings towards Gon. Togashi purposefully wrote Palm as having romantic feelings for Gon to foil Killua’s feelings for Gon and make him show jealousy towards Palm.
To Killua, Palm is someone who stole Gon from him, he sees her as a threat because maybe she’ll make Gon happier than he does ? (ofc we all know thats not true but Killua is baby) - Basically, Killua thinks Palm might be more important to Gon than Killua is, because he believes they are romantically involved. That’s why when he sees her again later on, after Gon rejected his help, leaving Killua helpess as to how to save his dear friend, Killua sees Palm as a saving grace.
He knows that if Gon sees Palm as a chimera ant, he will spiral down even more, so he tries to reason with her to get her to be gentle to Gon, because if not her, then who could? Palm would clearly be able to comfort Gon, with whom Killua believes is romantically involved with, better than him, right ? If Gon rejected Killua, then clearly Palm could help, since she seems closer to Gon (BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THEYRE DATING), right?
This confrontation between Palm and Killua closely ressembles a situation like an ex confronting a new girlfriend - and I think this is exactly why Togashi wrote Palm this way. He wanted Killua to confront who he thought was a threat to their relationship, making him believe that this person who’s “”“"dating”“"” Gon is more important to him than himself, only to have her openly admit that she means nothing to Gon. The only one Gon needs is Killua.
And that, my friends, coming from someone you believe is romantically involved with your best friend (who you probably have a crush on), someone you’re jealous of, the one you thought was the person most important to him, that’s a pretty meaningful statement.
Basically, what’s happening, is that Palm reaffirms that Gon holds Killua closer than a potential romantic partner. And that’s why Killua is so, so happy to hear that. He was questioning his entire relationship, questioning if Gon even cared about him, because he rejected him a few minutes before, but then his "rival” comes in and reaffirms that even she knows that no one comes close to Killua to Gon.
I also want to mention that this act of pure love (Killua only thinking of saving Gon when in a life threatening situation) is what made Palm come back to her human senses. d'awwwwww
• Illumi and Hisoka’s parallel on lovers who die of Alluka’s requests. (chapter 323)
Now onto the final significant subtext - while I don’t particularly think of it as subtext-y, I know a lot of people have so I still want to include it here.
When Illumi explains Alluka’s powers to Hisoka, he explains that there are two different types of linked deaths when a request is failed : 1) the person who failed + the person they love the most 2) the person who failed + the people they spent most of their time with.
When applied to Killua, Hisoka naturally comes to the conclusion that no matter the outcome, Gon would always be the one dying with Killua, because he’s spent so much time with him, and because he’s the one that Killua loves the most. In the panel where Illumi explains this, we see a romantic, heterosexual couple demonstrating the effects of not completing one of Alluka’s requests, and thus the “most important person dying”.
While not making any true parallels, the fact that Hisoka, and the readers, are drawn to compare a heterosexual, romantic pairing to Killua dying with Gon because he’s his “most important person” is an interesting piece of subtext.
~
I want to finish by talking about Killua’s birthday and how significant it is in my opinion. All the main 4 characters have birthdays that fall on specific dates, related to Japanese tradition, and often with events that can be associated to their character. Gon’s is 5/5, which is Children’s Day. Kurapika’s is 4/4, the number 4 being considered an unlucky number, and this being an unlucky day to have a child. Leorio’s is 3/3, Hinamatsuri (not really any main parallels here but still). But Killua’s birthday is 7/7, and is the Japanese day to celebrate Tanabata.
If you are not familiar with Tanabata, the story is as follows : Orihime is a princess who works for her father, working hard and well, but she laments the fact that because of her hard work she can’t meet someone and fall in love. Her father arranges for her to meet Hikoboshi, allowing Orihime to leave because he expects her to come back to work for him, but the two immediately fall in love and get married, and she never returns.
I won’t get into the rest of the story as it’s this part that interests me the most, but if you want to read more about Killua and Tanabata I suggest reading the post I referenced below.
Does the story of Orihime remind you of anyone ? Killua also works for his father, but laments the fact that he can’t go outside and meet someone. His father then lets him go, saying, and i quote: “he will come back, because he’s my son”. Doesn’t this remind you of the tale of Tanabata ?
Killua’s story references the tale of Orihime perfectly, and I believe this is intentional : Killua’s birthday isn’t of any importance to the plot, so why make it Tanabata, a day that celebrates a love story that closely ressembles Killua’s story ? The answer is simple : subtext.
With all this in mind, I think it’s pretty clear that Togashi is writing intentional subtext to hint at Killua’s feelings being romantic in nature. Togashi is a master writer, he has years of experience, and I strongly believe he knows what he’s doing and not planting unintentional subtext. He’s a very smart man, and knows how all of this can be interpreted.
I will finish by saying that Togashi is NOT an author that would deliberately queerbait his readers. So many people dismiss the possibility of having homoerotic subtext leading onto an actual canon gay relationship because “it’s not like the author would ever have gay main characters”. While this holds true for a lot of manga authors, especially shonen manga authors, it does NOT apply to Togashi.
Togashi has always displayed interest in queer subjects and queer representation, putting trans characters in all of his major works (Miyuki in YYH, Mikihisa in Level E and Alluka in HxH). There were also canonically gay characters in his previous works : Itsuki in YYH, and a character named Kuramoto in Level E.
Togashi also always had interest in mangas having BL elements, citing Maya Mineo’s “Patalliro!” as a manga he was attracted to during High School. If you’re unfamiliar with Patalliro, the story focuses on the main character’s love life as a gay man. He also admitted to basing Hiei’s (YYH) design off a character from that manga.
Last but not least, Togashi mentioned in a note included in volume 1 of YYH that he wanted to write a sports manga, called The Trouble Quartet, where basically all the characters are gay. Togashi said he based it off his own interests as a writer, and that while it was refused by Shonen Jump, he got deeply attached to the project and that he would love to explore this project in a different shape once he made a name for himself. I suggest reading this post because the parallels between The Trouble Quartet and HxH are HILARIOUSLY accurate.
In short, Togashi has always had interest in queer matters, and was always interested in putting queer representation in his work. After YYH, which was a terrible experience for Togashi as a writer, he managed to snatch a contract that basically allows him to do whatever he wants with HxH.
Having always held dear BL matters but never being able to explore it to his full intent, I believe Togashi is exploring queer identity further with HxH, because Shonen Jump basically lets him do anything.
To conclude, with Togashi’s past experience and skill, his interest in queer representation, and the amount of subtext surrounding Killua, I honestly believe that Togashi is trying to explore further queer representation, and I wouldn’t be surprised if HxH ends with Gon and Killua becoming a canon pairing, whether it be delivered in an ambiguous manner or not.
I hope you enjoyed the read, thank you for reading all of this, and feel free to show this to anyone who denies subtext in HxH !

2020.06.17 10:00 travisharms I messed up with my friends (two people in the same post, TLDR in bold)

So a quick rundown of the one that has been bothering recently.
TLDR: I pretty much mansplained over this girl I like, I blurted out her answer. Lately, it's been haunting me and I am convinced that the only way to clear myself of this ghost is to confront her and apologize for being such a jerk.
So I like this Indian girl, we would talk and get coffee after school some times. We would have lunch with each other, and just be with each other quite often. One day she was talking to another guy and mentioned that she and her family practiced Jainism, so I went and learned a bit about it (just enough to know what not to do or say that could offend her).
About a month after that interaction we go to a school dance with each other, and she and that guy were talking about the religions they practiced (He must've forgotten since they both practice Jainism). And then I very rudely interrupted and blurted out 'JaInIsM' without giving her time to answer the question. I think a big part of me was a bit jealous of the guy she was talking to (we weren't and aren't dating, and she seemed to hit it off with him very well), so that action was more or less to show her that I paid attention and remembered what she said. However. after I dropped her off and was driving home, I was reminiscing on how fun the dance was, and how I was such a boss for knowing the religion she practiced until I realized that I totally just embarrassed myself in front of her.
This was pushed pretty far back into my head though, as she didn't really make any remarks about it so I just thought I could brush it off and pretend it never happened. And that was it, I did my embarrassing thing and forgot about it... Until now.
So I've been getting into eastern philosophy/ies recently and, obviously, Jainism appeared during my search. And for the past week, I can't stop thinking about the incident any time I start reading about Eastern Philosophy.
And now I am at the point where I'm convinced the only way to feel better about the situation is if I just apologize.
This is a new segment that has close to no relation to the other post. But if you would like to give a bit of insight into this other situation that would be much appreciated.
TLDR: I made some homophobic jokes a few years ago which offended this girl and made her unfollow me. And now she invades my head, making me question everything I do. My mental manifestation of her has convinced me that I'm a bad person, even though I've made many changes that have made me proud of the person I am today, and she would probably like me more now too. Should I apologize to her and tell her that I've changed? Or should I try to let her go?
In 2017 I was a huge edgelord, I said words I shouldn't have said, did actions I shouldn't have done, and thought things I shouldn't have thought. Now I won't blame that on age, I knew what I was doing was wrong to the public eye, but I thought that I was cool for breaking societal boundaries and offending people. I even had a meme account where I would post offensive memes that had like 1k followers (I have since then deleted it).
But one of my friends was a "Libtard" and a "Snowflake", and she had, understandably, had enough of my toxicity. So then she calmly stated that she was going to unfollow me because she didn't like what I was posting and even said that she hoped I would grow up one day (which I did, however, I am very aware I have a lot farther to go). So with all that kindness and respect, I blow up at her saying how she is stupid, and that she can't separate the difference between using the word gay as a homophobic insult, and using the word gay as just a regular insult (it is only now do I realize that it is a bigger cultivation of my actions and not the one particular post).
So there's the context. Now, she was a very impactful person in my life, and even though I was afraid to admit it, what she did really hurt me, and ultimately lead to me changing certain parts of my life, and by extension making me less angry, spiteful, childish, and even totalitarian (don't want to get into it). She was the reason I can now say I am proud of who I've become. But I still think, even though I am proud of myself, and even though I think I have changed for the better, that I'm a bad person.
Should I confront her about this and tell her that I've changed? Tell her that I'm not a bad person anymore? Or just try to let the thought of her go and peacefully accept myself without requiring her validation of me?

Both of these animes actually have a similar storyline. The story revolves around 3 couples that work or inter-tied with a manga publishing house. These two animes are particularly interesting because unlike most animes; genre of 'flower boys' beat around the subject of gay too indirectly. Yaoi is usually hardcore with no plausible plot or relationship, just happy-endings ;). These walk a fine line of speaking directly to hypothetical gay relationships and events. You can decide which show is more realistic with the couples' scenarios. Either way, they are heart-gushing great!

2020.05.17 06:12 n3x7life So I created a flowchart to streamline my online dating life

I've been in the online dating scene now since December last year and overall I'd say I've had just slightly more bad experiences than good ones. I'm not really one to beat myself up or get disheartened easily despite the annoying nature of online dating (i.e girls using old photos from 2016 when they looked much different) and the current state of the playing field.
Recently, I've been thinking about how I can create more closer connections and ultimately have a higher rate of success with the girls I match with. So I woke up yesterday morning with the idea of creating a flowchart I can use to streamline the process of online dating to create deeper connections with my matches, and ultimately get to the dating part (whether virtual or in-person) as quickly/efficiently as possible.
Here it is for all who would like to see it:
The Online Dating Flowchart - Pandemic Edition
I created this based off my experiences with various matches over the past 1-2 months and thought about all the times where I had wasted my time, or simply lost interest in who I was chatting to. Since this is based off my experiences, if you do follow it just substitute what you know works for you based on your personality and experiences.
I have 5 new matches that I have just begun chatting to, so I'm going to be trialing this flowchart basically from now and will be refining it over the coming weeks as things play out based on what works/doesn't work.
I would love to get as much feedback/thoughts on this as possible.
Lastly, I do just want to add that this is not meant to be a pickup artist kind of thing...I am not claiming to be such a person, nor do I condone that kind of activity. Just a guy trying to make (dating) life and finding the right one a little easier on all of us.

2019.11.13 23:12 dscyrux Explaining the Changes to the Mod Team: Some Personal Perspectives

Preface

Just to clarify before I go into anything with this post: Wickedplayer is still stepping down as head mod, as per the user vote. This is not an attempt to circumvent that. Wickedplayer has also been fully removed from the mod team.

Beginnings

I have been on this mod team for almost a year now. I originally joined with the intent to provide a pro-meme opinion and voice to the mod team, and to hopefully get some changes to happen regarding that. Additionally, when I joined, I had the mentality of “Wicked is the big bad messing everything up on this subreddit, I hope I can help change that.” This line of thinking came from that whole Rule #7 fiasco a couple years back. I hated that whole thing, and this convinced me that the mod team did not have enough representation for differing opinions. I was correct, but that is aside the point of this post.
When I joined, I quickly learned that moderator activity was a major issue within the staff. For the first couple of months, I worked very hard at approving, removing, and dealing with other mod actions required for this subreddit. I honestly don't blame this on any of the mods now. It's draining to work so hard on the subreddit while also dealing with real life responsibilities. The reason I bring this up, however, is to show that most of the mods in power at that time weren't very great with their activity.
I also observed that, of the ones there, Deadshot_Calamity was the most active. This moderator was frequently the one who attempted to get changes made. This is all well and good, and is something great you could ask of a moderator. However, decisions made and changes pushed forward by Deadshot were always fueled by their own opinion of what the subreddit should be. User votes or polls were never a consideration for her. Any polls or votes you guys got were pretty much exclusively pushed forward by other mods. For example, here is a poll I did early on in my time here. While Deadshot was indeed cooperative with putting this poll up, this never would have happened if it were entirely Deadshot's decision.
When I made this vote, I made it with the intention that it was a vote. I wanted these results to directly determine our next course of action. I had indicated this multiple times within the mod Discord. However, once we had finished acquiring results, the consensus made with this user vote was tossed aside, under the claim that this was just a poll, not a vote. Therefore, the whole vote, the test run, all of the effort, simply went to waste. Nothing was done about it, and your opinions were completely ignored. I could not get anything done about it. I was too new to really have any pushing power.

The Discord

Some time in between this and the next mod applications, we had some issues with the /TF2 Discord. We realized our Discord mods weren't properly enforcing our rules on NSFW within the Discord. They were allowing people to post cropped pornography and soft-core pornography within the text channels. When we, the subreddit mod team, confronted them about this, many of them became incredibly belligerent and refused to listen to us. Internally, the subreddit mods had a discussion, and came to a decision that we would remove the moderators that refused to enforce our rules and replace them with some new moderators. There was a vote held, and we voted for the people we wanted removed. This vote finished with all of the active moderators having given their opinions.
During this time, A_Satanic_Fish was the owner of the Discord. Under the claim of wanting to have an active mod in charge of the Discord to properly manage it, Deadshot_Calamity obtained ownership of the Discord. Deadshot had promised to do something about the moderators who were uncooperative, and remove them. However, once Deadshot obtained control of the Discord, no moderators were demoted. One of these moderators was removed at a far later date, due to unrelated issues.
A while after Deadshot obtained ownership and didn't do what they had promised about the removal of moderators, the decision was made by Deadshot and presumably the Discord moderators to completely revoke the Subreddit Mods' abilities to manage the Discord.
As you may know, the Discord now actively enforces a strict no-NSFW rule. However, this only ever came about because of Discord's updated policy for Partnered servers. If this TOS update had never come out, I suspect their rules would still be the same.

Why We Now Have Serious Saturday and Meme Sunday

Fast-forward a few months, we've got mod applications going again, and we add on another couple of mods, one of which being TheSpookiestUser. Some of you may know him from previously having modded on here. He joined, and without prior knowledge of my attempts to get a meme weekend going, pitched the idea of meme weekends again, and ultimately got it done. This is what we currently have on the subreddit now. I honestly couldn't tell you what made them listen to him instead of myself. Honestly, I didn't and don't really care, I'm just glad the idea happened.

Current Time

Fast-forward a while longer, add on some new mods, and now we're here. Deadshot and Spooky decide Wicked is suddenly the source of all the activity issues, and start rallying the junior mods to vote him off. Wicked accepts these terms, on the condition that a user vote is made on the subreddit posted by a neutral party. The mods didn't want this. They wanted to simply get it over with, sweep it under the rug, and not mention it to any of the users outside of “he left by his own will”. They even went as far as to start a formal head mod removal via way of Reddit administrators before they finally caved and gave you this post. This post was not posted by a neutral party, and instead by a shared mod account (which, for the record, was not discussed with anyone else). This post is also heavily loaded against Wicked. I will concede that Wicked has performed questionable actions. I can't say I condone them. However, I cannot be okay with such a ridiculously one-sided post. It brings up a lot of points that are entirely irrelevant to his ability to be here, and most disturbingly, outright lies about the threadjacking point. (Confused Gay Witch is Deadshot, Cyrus is myself.)
This raises many red flags which quickly lead some of the mod team to be very suspicious of the true motives of the removal of Wickedplayer as head mod. There had not, and to the time of posting this thread, still has not been any sort of discussion about who will take his place.
Internally, the given reason for Wicked's removal is inactivity. They wanted an active head mod to lead them. However, the mod team has near complete freedom in what changes we make. Wicked has never stopped us from making any sort of decisions, especially if the majority of the mod team is in agreement.
Under these given reasons, Wiethoofd would be out of the question, as his inactivity is similar to Wicked's. TheSpookiestUser has expressed that he does not want the position. You can bet I wouldn't have gotten the position, because I like the presence of memes on the subreddit. All the other mods were too new to be considered for the position.
So this leaves Deadshot_Calamity. A moderator who during my first few months here, while certainly the most active of the team at the time, displayed similar activity levels as mods you tend not to hear about too often (e.g. HiddenMafia, Ex6tenze_JA, etc). Activity levels of which have steadily decreased over the past couple of months. They are, as of two months ago, a moderator of /Games. They have had previous experience with getting into a high level staff position, committing moderation overreach, and ultimately destroying community activity. This person has shown to myself over the past 10 months that they don't care to find out what the community wants. This user is the only valid candidate for head mod, and this is the person that initiated the vote. Take from that what you will.

What Now?

Well, I've been going on most of this post about Deadshot_Calamity. As you may have noticed, this is not the only mod that has been removed. What happened to the rest? The response to that is very simple, and takes far less time to explain:
This mod team has too much drama. So many of the moderators here are so caught up with past events that have occurred in this mod team. So many of the things that try to get done here are held up because some user has some sort of pointless grudge against another. This is why so many are gone: to try to get a clean slate of people who don't have grudges against each other, who only care about finding solutions to what the community wants.
Something occurred to me yesterday that I hadn't thought about in my entire time here. This mod team doesn't operate as a team. It operates like a government, where people of opposing views just passive-aggressively hate each other, instead of trying to find a middle ground.
I had such a hard time adjusting to the moderation here after my work over on /RandomActsofTF2. On my mod team there, we act as a team. We openly discuss our opinions on important topics: bans, events, fishy posts, allowed content, etc. We find a common middle ground. Here, there's nowhere near as much communication. When I first joined, there was no communication. It has certainly gotten better since then, but it's still not good. There is discussion, but no common ground tends to be attempted to be found. Most of the time, it's majority rule. My suggestions as a holder of an outlying opinion are just that: suggestions.

This Post is Ridiculously Long, No One Cares.

So yea, that's it. TL;DR, we're wiping the slate mostly clean, kicking out a power tripping mod, and bringing in a new mod team who will care about what the users want. We'll try to actually find good compromises to make as many people able to enjoy this subreddit as possible.

New Moderators

All that aside, here are some of the new mod members we're bringing on to help out with this shortage of mods we've made for ourselves. Included with each one is something written by them individually.

Former Head Mod smhxx

Hi, all. smhxx here. Some of you may remember me, or at least recognize my username; I was previously the head mod of /tf2 for about 6 years until I stepped down from the mod team roughly a year and a half ago. The current mod team asked me to lend my experience and expertise to help smooth over this difficult transitional period, so I've agreed to come back onto the mod team temporarily and help guide the new mods towards a more functional team dynamic. Ultimately, I feel like a lot of this dysfunction indirectly stems from my decision to "retire" from being a mod, which led to the team no longer having the stabilizing voice that I used to provide as head mod, so I feel it's only right for me to do what I can to get things back on track and running smoothly. My new role will be mostly that of a temporary consultant, giving guidance to the new mods and helping establish a system that allows all the mods to work together for the good of the community, like we used to have. I still love this sub, and I would hate to see it fall apart, so I will do what I can to make sure that doesn't happen. As always, your patience is appreciated, and it's good to be back, if only for a time.

/TF2ShitposterClub Head Mod StarHoarder

Hi im StarHorder, i made tf2shitposterclub. I try to make at least one person smile everyday. I can easily blend into the community when i want to and i can put my foot down when i need to. Theres only really been one time i have had to step in as a moderator in tf2shitposterclub and it went quite well.

/RandomActsofTF2 Moderator and KritzKast Staff NTDonkie

Hey my lovely’s NTDonkie at your service! Some of you will know my name from either moderating RAOTF2 and also as a long standing background membefriend of the show for Kritzkast. I’ve jumped on board to give a helping hand while TF2 is in a state of transition. (we wish to make this as smooth a process as possible). I’m an EU based Mod, a super friendly mod at that :3 (oh no! cat face is already been released) Mainly my priorities will be to be a friendly face, someone for the community to talk to if needed and to help sort through reports and issues. My time here will only be temporary but I hope I’ll be able to do things well! Here’s to the subs future and to positive change!
The Discord will also be receiving new moderators due to the previously issues outlined in an above section. Here are some of them, along with personal blurbs.

/RandomActsofTF2 Mod Dawnzly

Hi everyone, my name is Dawnzly/Sly and I help moderate /randomactsoftf2! I mainly focus on the discord there and I have experience moderating large active discords in the past. I will be helping run the tf2 discord and I hope you grant us patience during this turbulent time.

Griefs, Experienced Discord Mod

herro im griefs :3 im coming to help out too!!!! ive worked under dscyrux in another server in the past, and was pretty excited when he asked if i wanted to join the mod team. tbh i dont know anything about tf2 beyond nope.avi, and do not use reddit, but moderating is a role i highly enjoy doing no matter the topic. im not shy to speak my mind, and stand up for what i believe is the right course of action. above all else, im not afraid to admit wrong-doings, failure or mistakes, and strive to do what's best for the user-base. i have a strong belief that no matter what political or religious views someone has, you can still befriend them. or at the very least, show mutual respect and empathy.

Addendum

The following content was written by other mods of the mod team.
Over the last couple of months, some very noticeable drifts to abrupt shifts have been taking place in a direction away from our transparent nature. If you've had a need to contact us through modmail for reasons such as scheduling a sticky, appealing a ban or similar, you might have noticed that some of the responses you have gotten were sent as "subreddit message via /tf2" as opposed to the moderator that wrote it. This is an option subreddit moderators are able to select when responding to modmail messages but is optional aside from being the first sender to a user. Within /tf2 we had no strong inclination to use it, though some moderators have taken to using it increasingly frequently in the past little while, accidentally on some occasions when it was the last selected option from someone else, and intentionally on others. Sometimes they did identify who they were within message body, but in one very recent case, this was not what happened.
The other abrupt shift was in the manner that posts were reviewed, which was not as noticeable to the unsuspecting user. In our subreddit, and in many others, moderators keep watch over the /new page and a special page called "modqueue", the latter being the destination for user reports on posts and comments. Generally we trust that our users know what breaks our rules and will report rule-breaking posts and comments. Where users are unsure, we encourage that they report anyway and select a rule they think it breaks. For a great part of the subreddit's history this system has worked very fine. Lately there has been a shift from using not just "modqueue" but another page called "unmoderated". The "unmoderated" page is geared towards subreddits that have a model where all posts MUST be reviewed by a moderator before becoming visible on a subreddit. /tf2 obviously does not use that model. We get over a hundred posts on an otherwise boring day; to have all those posts require manual approval before they appear would be very inefficient and fundamentally break the way that you use the subreddit. "unmoderated" lists posts that haven't had one of these three buttons pressed by a moderator, those being "spam" for spam posts, "remove" for general rule-breaking posts, and "approve" for posts that are okay. Particularly within the last month, there has been an odd focus on using unmoderated over modqueue which has resulted in a perceived tectonic shift in who is doing what, which included claims of inactivity on the part of others, some of which was legitimate while being a stretched truth for others. A significant portion of this activity has been hitting the approve button on posts that were okay under the rules and did not get reported by users. This shift was allowed to continue for long enough that the moderation log (a tool to track which moderator did what action) became lopsided with actions that were mostly approves totally unassociated with reports.
That the petition post was made on tf2modbot was particularly chilling in its own right, it was the understanding that it was to be exclusively used for bot activity only and not as a means to make generic announcement posts, or for any other human activity or as a shield. Though an alternative of selecting a totally neutral third party completely uninvolved with the subreddit and its affairs and members was proposed to allow both sides to explain their cases at the same time, this suggestion fell on deaf ears.
We also discovered that beyond what was used for the petition post, leaks of communications in moderator channels were happening in an attempt to further sway opinions. This was also despite an understanding that the petition post would be allowed to stand on its own without external "campaigning" towards one side or another, which was apparently not respected. Some of those that did not agree or otherwise wanted to deconstruct some of the claims made were thinking about making a post as a response to the petition to debunk that the movement was unanimous; it was decided that doing so in the heat of the moment would cause more problems than they would solve.
Nevertheless, wickedplayer494 has agreed to relinquish the top moderator spot and be reorganized into a lower role(Edit: Though this was the original intent, it was made clear that this was not clearly indicated in the vote post. Though this was not of our doing, we recognize this should not have been the case. Therefore, he has been removed entirely, as the community voted for.). It is true that he did request that a petition post be made in much the same way that one was created by an ordinary user to appoint him as a moderator in the first place, and that he acknowledged that it would have the potential to create a lot of controversy even if a third party was the one that made it.

2019.06.21 09:16 nikinevermind nicht weiblich genug für cis-lesbische Menschen (Dating)?

Hallo ihr :3
TW: Dating und Angst vor Cissexismus
also ich bin ein nichtbinäres Demigirl. Bei der Geburt wurde mir fälschlicherweise das männliche Geschlecht zugewiesen. Da in meinem momentanen Umfeld keine Transistion möglich ist und ich da vorerst nicht raus komme sehe ich dementsprechend aus (männlich).
Weil es bei mir keine queeren Orte gibt, wo ich Menschen kennenlernen könnte, hab ich ein Online-Dating Profil auf OkCupid. Zum einen haben die nicht-binäre Optionen, zum anderen hab ich das Gefühl, dort sind die Menschen am nettesten und inklusivsten (im Vergleich zu anderen Apps).
Auf den Bildern die ich hochgeladen sehe ich einigermaßen feminin aus (Kleid, Schmuck, Schminke, ...). So kann ich aber leider nicht im real life auftreten, wenn es zu einem Treffen kommen würde. Passing ist also null vorhanden.
Wenn eine Person dann im Profil Pan- oder Bisexuell angegeben hat, hab ich da auch kaum ein schlechtes Bauchgefühl. Auch wenn eine trans weibliche Person lesbisch oder gay als Orientierung hat (man kann statt männl./weibl. auch explizit angeben ob man trans oder cis ist, was viele tun) hab ich da wenig Bedenken, einfach weil ich hoffe, dass die Person aufgrund des trans seins nicht so Cissexistisch ist und mich als das wahrnimmt was ich bin: kein Mann.
Wenn aber eine Person cis weiblich oder weiblich (und ich nicht weiß, ob sie cis oder trans ist, was ja im Prinzip egal ist -trans frauen sind frauen- ) ist und lesbisch oder gay als Orientierung, dann hab ich da echt Angst und swipe die Person meistens weg und versuche es erst gar nicht. Ich hab echt Angst vor den Reaktionen und kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass sich die Person dann in mich verliebt oder Interesse hat - weil ich noch nicht transistioniert bin.
Kennt ihr das Gefühl und wie ist eure Erfahrung damit?

The bureaucratic process to do almost any thing.
2 examples.
First... When I first arrived in China I neededto buy a pen. I went to the local store and picked out a pen and started towalk to the counter. A lady started yelling at me and grabbed the pen. I wasvery confused. I wondered if she thought I was stealing I t. She took the penand gave me a little piece o f paper that she had just stamped. She than tookthe pen to the country and gave the lady there a piece of paper that that ladystamped. She returned with the paper and gave it to me and pointed for me tostand in line. I stood there and got to the counter and handed l the lady theslip of paper. She asked me for some R M B and stamped the paper and gave itback to me. She pointed for me to go back to where I had found the pen. Iwalked back and the first lady took the two pieces of paper I had. Stapled themtogether and stamped them again. Only after she had done this did she give methe pen.
Second... When I first arrived in China I was a teacher at an International University.The l light bulb in my room went out. So I went to the maint guys and askedthem for an o ther bulb. They indicated that I needed to fill out some paperwork to get it and then they would come and install it. I told them that it waso k, I would just go buy one and put it in. They informed me that this was I m possibleand if I did it I would be in trouble.
So I took the paper and filled it out. Itook it back to them and they informed me that they did not get the paper but Ihad to take it to the office.
So I took it to the office and I was toldthat the paper needed a stamp but the guy who has that stamp was gone for thenext two days. I was told to leave the paper on his desk and he l would stampit and give it to the maint guys. So I did.
3 days went buy and my bulb still had notbeen changed. I went to the maint guys and they said that they had neverreceived the paper. So I went back to the main office and asked the guy withthe stamp. He informed me that it was the wrong paper and he had thrown itaway. I asked him if he had the right paper and he said he did and gave it tome. I had him help me fill it out and gave it to him. He stamped it and I tookit. I did not take it to the maint guys right away since I was going out withsome friends.
When I returned the next day I gave thepaper to the main t guys and asked them if they could do the b u l b to day.They said they could but when they looked at the paper they informed me that ithad the wrong stamp on it and that I should take it back to the man with thestamp.
I did as they said but was informed thisman was going to be out of town for a week and would not be back. I asked againif I could just change it myself and they said no. At this point I l wasgetting angry and I said jokingly "may be you should just give me anotherroom with a light in it that works." They lady said o k. Filled out apiece of paper and stamped it. She handed it to the other lady standing thereand she gave me a key to another room.
It was easier to get another room thanchange a light bulb.

做任何事情都需要的繁文缛节的手续
2个例子
第一,当我刚来到中国的时候我需要一支笔,我去当地店里选了一只走向了柜台,一个女士开始对我大喊,并且抢走了笔。我很不解,好奇她是不是以为我在偷窃。她拿着笔,给了我一张她刚加盖的小纸。她然后拿着笔走到了柜台,给了那里的女士一张纸,那个女士也加盖了。她把纸给了我并且指着让我去排队。我站在那里然后到了柜台前把纸给了女士,她收了我一些人民币然后加盖了纸又给了我。她让我再回到自己刚才那笔的地方。我再走回去,第一个女士拿走了我手里的两张纸。都给他们加盖并且装订在了一起,在这只会她才把笔给我
第二,我刚来中国的时候在一所国际大学做老师,我房间里的电灯泡坏了,所以我去找维修人员让他们帮我换一个。他们说我需要填一些表格然后才能叫人来维修,我告诉他们没事,我可以自己去买一个然后装上,他们告知我这是不可能的,我可能因此有麻烦
所以我填好了表格交还给他们,他们告诉我我得把纸头交到办公室里去
所以我去了办公室,我被告知这个纸需要盖章,但那个家伙接下来两天都不在,我只能把纸留在他桌上,他会盖上给维修人员的,我就这么做了
三天过去了我的灯泡还是没换,我去找维修人员他们说他们没有收到纸,所以我再去办公室问盖章的人。他告诉我填错表了然后他就扔掉了。我问他有没有对的纸头,他说有的就给我了。我让他协助我填完了然后给他了。他盖章然后给我,我没有立马给维修的人因为我和几个朋友出去了
当我第二天把纸给维修人员,问他们能不能今天帮我换灯泡的时候,他们说可以然后看了表格之后告诉我说上面的章盖错了,我应该重新找那个人盖章
我照他们说的做了,但被告知盖章的人出差一周才回来。我再次问他能不能自己换,他们说不可以。这时候我已经很生气了就开玩笑的说“也许你们应该给我另一间有灯泡的房间”他们说可以,让我填完表格改完章就给了旁边的一个女士,然后给了我另一个房间的钥匙
这要比更换灯泡简单的多

This is the greatest thing I have read inthe past 17 minutes.

这是我在过去17分钟读到最好的事情

Coach brad b
I always said that God sent me to Chinato learn patience. He failed.

我一直都说上帝把我送到中国学习耐心,但失败了

Vis Karen visla
O h my fucking lord, what a bunch ofincredible, lazy, irresponsible ass holes. They probably just didn't want towork and wanted to maintain their stupid dominance. Next time I advise you tosimply change the light bulb. Customer service in China is rife with idiocy.

哦我的天啊,真是一帮不可思议的懒惰不负责任的混蛋。他们可能只是不想工作想要保持自己愚蠢的主导力。下次我建议你自己换电灯泡好了,中国的克服充满了白痴

My chinese sucks
First the good:
People are generally very nice. Sure thereare dicks, but when you get to know people they are usually incredibly nice. Myfirst spring festival in china I didn't have any really good friends y e t,only been here a few months, the shop owner under my apartment invited me tohis house for the holiday. At that time I couldn't under stand any thing, justenough to under stand that he was inviting me to his house and to get on hisscooter. Ha ha, it's was a great time. I've never been treated like family bystrangers faster than in china.
Family values. I love how important familyis out here. I have my pro blems with it (I'l l write about that below) butover all I love it.
Food. Not at all like American Chinesefood. Some of it is terrible, but good Chinese food is l so much better thangood American Chinese food.
Now the bad:
Manners. Spitting, shitting, pissing, puking, blowing snot rockets, all onthe street. Table manners also. This surprised me the m o s t. I came to China after living I n Japan for ayear. L Talk about a shock.
Parental control. It drives me crazy howmuch control parents have over their kids. I got married last year andbasically am a terrible son in law because we haven't made a baby for theparents yet. Fuck that.
Kids don't grow up. Because of the parent*河蟹*trol kids stay kids for ever. My best friend who is 28 and married lives athome, goes home for lunch, and basically can't do any thing to take care of himself. Awe some guy, but seriously needs to man up. He got married a few monthsback, doesn't want a kid yet, but it doesn't matter so he and his wife arealready expecting. His mom called me sel fish for not knocking my wife upalready.

首先是好的方面:
人们都很友善。当然也有混蛋,但当你了解这里的人之后你就知道他们都很友善。在中国的第一个春节,那时我没有太多好朋友,只来这里几个月而已,住我楼下的一个店主邀请我去他们家欢度春节。那时我真的什么都不懂,我只知道他请我去他家然后开始开酒了。哈哈这是很不错的时光,我从来没有被陌生人像家人一样对待的速度这么快,除了在中国
家庭价值。我喜欢家庭在这里的重要性,我对此自己也有问题(下面我会说明)但我真的很喜欢
食物。不是像美国那样的中餐,有些很糟糕,但中国的美食要比美国的中餐好的多
现在是不好的地方:
礼仪:吐痰,拉屎,撒尿,呕吐,流鼻涕,都是在大街上。桌上的礼仪也很糟糕。这让我最为惊讶。我在日本生活了一年之后才来到中国的,真是震惊
真是恶心
孩子长不大。因为家长的控制,孩子永远是孩子。我最好的朋友28岁,都已经结婚了还住在家里,回家吃饭,基本不会照顾自己。真的很牛逼,但老实说男人需要自立。他结婚几个月,不想要孩子,但这无所谓因为他和老婆都不想要,但他母亲说他自私,不快点生孩子

Tim ber fall28 China[ S]
Y e a h I, born and raised in China,don't even under stand most Chinese parents.
When you're in middle school you have a boyfriend/girl firend your parents will kill you, but if you're in college andstill single they will find blind dates for you.
I thank Chinese gods my parents don'tpester me about getting married and make two babies for them.

是的,我在中国出生长大,自己都不理解大多数中国父母的想法。
当你在中学有男友或者女友,你父母会想杀了你,但当你在大学还单身,他们会盲目的为你安排约会
我感谢上帝我的父母没有纠缠我让我结婚,或者为他们生两个孩子

Question From a Chinese Guy: What surprisedyou the most when you first came to China
The most? The way people drive.
I never experienced culture shock the waymost foreigners seem to, but nearly two l years later and if some one honks atme I wan na wring their neck.
The absolute selfish ness that is China's drivingculture is perhaps my big gest beef.
Other things that surprised me, I mustremember...
-the amount of luxury l cars. I've seenmore Bentleys in this shitty fuck in tier 3 than I ever did back in America.
-sharing food around the table, using yourown chop sticks (people in Americawould think of this as a health hazard or some B S)
-every man in China smokes, and if you meet a newpeng bro he'll insist to give you a c I g
-Chinese men's way of drinking. Can't drinkalone or even sip alone as it's considered im polite.
-speaking of drinking, the c u p/glasssizes at restaurant are ridiculously small compared to western sizes. I oftenwonder how much water the average Chinese person drinks...I know for sure I l don'tdrink as much water now as I did back home.
-how relatively not poor a lot of Chinesepeople are...when I first came here, I thought 5000R M B was an average, decentsalary. Now it seems 10,000R M B isn't any thing special. I wonder what theaverage salary will be years down the line.
-how no one gives a fuck as to what theywear. in the winter months, it's not uncommon to see people wear the sameclothes for a week. do that shit in America and people will thinkyou're poor or dirty.
-jack shit will happen if I talk about Ti an'an men or Cultural Revolution shen anigans
-Buddhism is not out lawed or dis couraged
-had no idea of the relationship betweenChina and Ja pan, y e a h even hearing kids call each other little Japanese asan insult...
These are off the top of my head. O P don'tthink I'm talking shit about Chinabecause I love this country, these are just the differences I recognize.
Keep in mind, a lot of Americans think China is similar to what North Korea is like now. Not manyfree dom s and what not. But drinking beer while walking home out in l publicis all the freedom I need.
P S if you live in a western country I'dlike to hear what things surprised you there

来自一个中国人的问题:你第一次来中国的时候最让你惊讶的是什么
最惊讶?人们开车的方式
我从来没有经历过其他外国人经历的文化冲击,但两年后如果有人朝我按喇叭,我会把他们脖子扭断
中国开车文化绝对的自私是我最想抱怨的
其他惊讶我的事情还有
--奢侈车的数量,我在三线城市看到的宾利车的数量要比在美国看到的还要多
--在桌上分享食物,用你自己的筷子(美国人会认为这是某种对健康的威胁)
--中国每个男人都吸烟,如果你遇到一个朋友,他肯定会坚持要给你一支烟
--中国人喝酒的方式,不能自己一个人喝酒,不然会认为是不礼貌的
--说到喝酒,相比于西方,中国餐厅里的酒杯大小实在小的可笑。我一直都好奇中国人能喝多少酒……我确定的是我现在喝的没有在自己祖国多
--很多中国人相对而言一点都不穷,我刚来的时候,我觉得5000人民币是平均水平,很不错的工资,现在看起来10000人民币都不是稀奇事。我好奇在这么下去以后平均工资要多少
--为什么没人在意中国人的穿着,在冬季,很容易看到人们几周都穿一样的衣服,在美国这么做认为会觉得你很穷或者很脏
--如果谈及天安门或者文革会有糟糕事情发生
--佛教不是非法或者不被鼓励的
--对中国和日本的关系不明白,甚至都能听到小孩大喊小日本作为对日本的侮辱
这些是我能想到的,我喜欢中国,所以不是在说中国坏话,这是我认识到的中国和我自己国家的不同
记住,很多美国人认为中国和朝鲜很相似,没有很多的自由,但我能在公共场所边喝酒边走回家,这就是我拥有的自由
还有,如果你生活在西方国家,我想听听最让你们惊奇的事情

What surprised me the most is howincredibly uncurious about things Chinese people are.

最让我惊奇的是中国人不可思议的对一切都不好奇

是的!我还是无法理解为什么他们如此冷漠,好像这样奇怪的场景他们已经看过上百次了

Respect your privilege
Question From a Chinese Guy: What surprisedyou the most when you first came to China
That many girls don't shave their arm pitsand some don't shave their legs. I admit there is no objective reason theyshould do so, but it's some thing heavily ingrained in me by my culture, and Ihad never even thought about them having a different policy on body hair.

来自一个中国人的问题:你第一次来中国的时候最让你惊讶的是什么
很多中国女孩不刮腋毛以及不刮自己的腿毛。我承认他们确实没有客观的理性要这么做,但这在我的文化里是根深蒂固的,我从来不觉得在体毛上面会有什么文化差异

Got here in 2007. Having lived in the westfor most of my life, I was most surprised about the food. There is a hugevariation of amazing Chinese food you just never hear of in the west. China is a hugeplace and every area has it s specialities. For example I had never tasted Xin Jiangfood, lan zhou la mien, or bei jing style hot pot.
The other thing is the differences in whatis regarded as common courtesy in the West and in China. Personal space, queuing,spitting in the street and so on. The first time in China I saw a lady hold up a babyto p e e literally on to the side walk staggered me. Going to Japan a few yearsback was a huge shock as it is pretty much the opposite extreme.
A few of the visitors I have had over havecommented on how developed Chinese infrastructure is and that it wassurprising. Huge roads connecting every city and comparatively well l maintainedrail ways was not what they were expecting to see.

我2007年来中国的,在西方生活了大半辈子,我最惊讶的是食物。在中国有很多惊人的食物,你在西方都没听说过。中国是很大的地方,各地都有特色。比如我从来没有尝过新疆菜,兰州拉面或者北京火锅
还有的不同就是西方认为普通的礼仪,个人空间,排队,随地吐痰等等。我刚来中国的时候看到一个女士抱着孩子在人行道上撒尿让我震惊了。在日本生活了几年这让我很震惊,因为在日本是完全不同的
一些来过中国的人都评价中国基础设施的发达,真的很惊奇。每个国家都有大路连接,还有维护不错的铁路,这都是让我很惊讶的

I already had a friend in China so he told me what to expect,so there was not that much that surprised me on the first day I came. On thesecond day I was pretty surprised that my boss showed up to work literallyfalling down drunk and had to be carried to couch to sleep it off by her co workers,all in full view of the students who seemed to take it in stride. Later on, Iwas surprised to see doctors smoking in a hospital corridor, and that I paid400 r m b in cash to have one of my student's broken arm set and cast. Thewhole thing seemed so dodgy to my Canadian sensibilities.

我已经有一个中国朋友了,所以他告诉了我一些可能遇到的事情,所以我刚来的时候不是很惊奇。第二天我很惊讶的是自己的老板醉着摔倒在我面前,必须被人搀扶睡在沙发上。这都被他的学生看到了,而他们似乎泰然自若的接受了。之后,我很惊讶的看到医生在医院走廊吸烟,这花了我400元让医生把我一个学生受伤的肩膀治好。整件事情在我一个加拿大人看来都是有问题的

Question From a Chinese Guy: What surprisedyou the most when you first came to China
These responses are based on the fact thatI was in Shang hai in 2006-2007. By the way, I love this question. I always askthis when others come to America.
The amount of brothels. I could see 5 frommy apart ment, and that didn't include massage parlors which may or may nothave offered similar services. I really didn't expect to get cat- called byprostitutes every time I left my house at night.
How close old and new worlds clashed. Onone end of my block, you could see 2 Mc Donald's, 3 K F Cs, 2 Pizza Huts, and 2H愀最攀渀- Dazs. How ever, on the other end of the block you could find peole l sellingsea food out of baskets in the mornings.
I once saw people selling some small birds(like pheasants or some thing) which were skinned alive. I've lived lived in Africa for a couple years of my life. I've seen peopledie violent deaths, but those birds disturbed more than any thing I've everseen.

来自一个中国人的问题:你第一次来中国的时候最让你惊讶的是什么,我的回复是基于06-07年我生活在上海,顺便我也很喜欢这个问题,我总是问其他来美国的人一样的问题
数量庞大的妓院。我在自己的住处就能看到5个。这还不包括可能提供相似服务的按摩院。我从来没想到自己会每次晚上离开自己住处的时候遭到*河蟹*的叫唤
新老世界的冲击。在我住处街道一侧,你能看到两家麦当劳,三家KFC,两家哈根达斯,两家必胜客。但在街道另一侧,你能看到早上人们在卖篮子里的海鲜食物。
我一次还看到有人在贩卖小鸟(像是类似野鸡一样的)被活剥皮。我在非洲生活了好几年,我看到有人暴力的死去,但这些小鸟的遭遇在我看来更加残忍

There were a lot of things that caught meoff guard despite having studied Mandarin and Chinese culture for three yearsat university before going. I think the one thing that really just blew me awaythe most the first time I saw it was the assless /crotch less pants littlechildren wear, so that they can freely take a dump wher ever they like, suchas: the middle of the Bei jing South Train Station ticket queue, in a pizza h ut, on the floor of a small pharmacy, and on and on. Really, it shocks me everytime, it's the one thing I didn't get used to.

尽管在来中国之前在大学里学了三年的普通话和中国文化,但还是有很多事情让我猝不及防。其中最让我惊讶的就是小孩子穿的短裤,他们能够随意的自由撒尿,比如,在北京南站售票处,在必胜客里,在小药房的地上等等。真的,每次都让我震惊,这是我不能习惯的事情

How big it is. Lived in Shanghai for a month and was awed at thesize. Only thing that compares in my experience is N Y C. And to think China has like10 N Y Cs.
I expected the food to be great, and I twas.

中国的大小,我在上海生活了一个月,对其大小震惊了,唯一让我觉得可以与其相比的就是纽约,我觉得中国有十个纽约这样的城市
我一直期待那里不错的食物,确实如此

The most surprising was seeing most girlswear black including stockings. It was like a goth convention. Then seeingpeople of the same gender hold arms thinking they were gay... It was hard toget over how bad the air was. I never expected to see so many Arabs orAfricans.

最让我震惊的是看到中国大多数女孩都穿黑色丝袜。这是特别野蛮的习俗。还有同一性别的人相互搭肩膀,让人觉得是同性恋。还有那里的空气让人受不了,我从来没有想到在那里看到这么多阿拉伯人或者非洲人

I was surprised by how nice people were tome, every one, every where pretty much. My best friend, an expat, lived therefor years and he said Chinese in Bei jing were ruder and nastier than any thingI could have prepared for - how far from the truth! Perhaps it was just hisexperience but every time I have asked a ran dom passer- by on the street forhelp they were pleasant and kind.
I was also surprised by how fuckingdisgusting some of the elderly could be. I was sitting on a bus one time andsome old woman with a cane came and sat down in front of me, staring for twentyminutes straight while occasionally hawk ing and spitting close to my feet.Most of the shit behavior I've seen has been from people who look to be overfifty in my experience.

我惊奇的是人们对我如此友善,到处都是如此。我最好的朋友,一个移民在那里生活了很多年了,他说北京人的野蛮和下流我应该做好准备—但这不是事实!也许只是他的个人经历,每次我随便向街上一个路人寻求帮助,他们都会开心友善的帮助我。
我还对一些老人的恶心感到惊讶。一次我坐在公交车上,一些拄拐杖的老女人坐在我前面,过了二十分钟开始偶尔朝我脚边吐痰了。我在这里看到的恶心的行为大多数都像是超过五十岁的人干的

E t a n a
Bicycles... every where. The dis regard ofthe cross walk by bo th pedestrians and cyclists surprised me as well. This wasback in 1992. What has surprised me over the years is the rapid rate ofdevelopment and investment. E. g. trying to find a cheese burger in 1992, im possible.By 1997, M c Donald's restaurants were every where.

自行车……到处都是。行人和骑车者都无视人行横道让我感到惊讶。这是在1992年的事情。这些年最让我震惊的是那里快速的投资发展。例如1992年试图找一家芝士汉堡店是不可能的,到了1997年,麦当劳已经到处都是了

2019.03.29 10:57 Logic_Meister What people mean when they say they don't want politics in comics

I'm writing this article in response to the controversy around the Captain Marvel film, and how it is similar to controversy that has happened for Marvel's comics in the past five or so years, in hopes of preventing further division within the Marvel fanbase, and maybe even unite us a bit, by allowing for understanding and opening up civil discussion & debate
Here’s why diversity in comics matters: Superhero movies, some of the most popular in history, have brought in people curious about comics. There is the opportunity to reach out to these fans, and offer them something they were there for at the beginning. Even though there should be more, and is more, to a good character than a shallow trait such as their race, gender or sexuality, seeing a character share such traits with you can be comforting and allow you to feel that you have somewhat of a good understanding of them. I can speak from personal experience that I have felt this when I read DC's Multiversity: Mastermen and saw that they had made Doll-Man and his wife Jehovah's Witnesses, even though they only got a few lines and appeared for two pages, I felt a connection to them.
However, I'm still a Comicsgater. Allow me to explain why:
It's important to note that there's quite few differences between how it happened in the past, & how it's happening now. Such as the inclusion of identity politics, & how such politics often involves bashing white males & non-left leaning position, an example is the Secret Empire event, where they made Steve Rogers a HYDRA Agent who rules America so they can bash Trump. At one point Riri, Miles & Patriot stop to complain about White Privilege. And even though White Privilege is a different debate, Miles; a kid with spider powers who got into a STEM school via lottery & gets training from Peter Parker, Riri: a 15 year old MIT student & Patriot: who got his tech from Tony Stark, are the last people who should be whining about it
But the biggest problems that caused Comicsgate is the forced change of pre-established characters, like when they turned Iceman gay, it's huge divulgation from decades long characterization, plus he started to act so differently, and it occurred over one page that was basically Jean going "Bobby, you're gay" and Iceman going "No I'm not" until Bobby said he was. Thus that it's common theory that what actually happened is that Jean Grey brainwashed him. In fact, I could give you a whole list of reasons for why Bobby to have spent all this time been secretly gay doesn't make sense narratively:
And it not like the X-Men lacked gay characters, in fact, one of the most famous and well-liked is NorthStar. And he had a widely celebrated gay wedding, which begs the question as to why that didn't inspire Bobby to come out, if he was in fact gay? Not helping is the fact that Bobby became a massive jerk after he "came out" along with acting like a gay stereotype. On the other hand, Jean has abused her power in the past and has even been corrupted by it. Her adult self was even making radically extreme choices in the X-Men Red series, and her child self had easily adapted to the current culture by her Solo series, and since the modern world is more accepting of Homosexuals, she probably thought she could get away with it (but that's just me speculating)
But if they wanted to have a solo series for a queer character, why not give on to the aforementioned NorthStar, or Shatterstar, or Daken, or Wiccan & Hulkling, or even just bring back Freedom Ring. (and that's just me going off the top of my head) A good example of someone they did this for was Loki who solo series Loki: Agent of Asgard and Vote Loki touched upon his long since pre-established gender-fluidity and no one complained, not even any of us so-called "bigots" at Comicsgate (And I double-checked to be sure) The most negative thing I could find about either series was a review for Vote Loki by a guy named Auran, who admitted that his main grievance was with the art and he didn't think the story was that good
They also had Jane Foster be Thor, (even though it was causing her cancer to kill her, against her level headed nurse character) and then take Thor's name for herself and had the actual Thor go by Odinson. Plus there's also the time Bor made an appearance in Angela Queen of Hel Issue 4 , which just raises the question; How does an ancient Asgardian deity who likely hasn't even been to Earth in tens of thousands of years even know what Israel is? Much less have unsolicited opinions on it?And here's an article stating that instead of just having Miles Morales around, Peter Parker should be turned into a Black guy for no reason other to fulfil a diversity quota
What makes it weirder for Marvel fans is that it's totally different from how they responded to Diversity demands 18-19 years ago. In fact, in that issue, they had Iron Man say:
We've talked about this before. We don't recruit for Skin Color.
The Avengers aren't about equal representation -- The squads are too small for that. We're about getting the job done -- and that's it.
We've had minority members for years -- from Black and Hispanic Heroes to Gypsies and Mythological Gods.
We'd never exclude anyone -- anyone -- because of their race.
And part of the problem is that we're told that we have to like these "diverse" characters or else we are sexist/racist/homophobic/bigoted/a Nazi/Alt-Right, even if they are poorly written, aren't particularly likable or are straight up replacing a beloved character. A couple of good examples are Sam Wilson a.k.a The Falcon when he took over the Captain America identity and Riri Williams;On paper the idea of Sam Wilson as a successor to Steve Rogers as Captain America makes sense, he has been his crime-fighting partner for decades. But in-story he never completely gave up the Falcon identity, (probably since doing so would be 'PC' as The Falcon was the first Black Superhero in comics) keeping the wings and goggles, plus there's the fact that he never smiled on the covers, even when nothing was happening in the background, and while Steve didn't always smile, especially to emphasise the seriousness of the comic, Sam never smiled, not even in-series, but rather had a look that made you think he was either angry, or trying to hold in a dump. Basically he was flying around on a glorified Jetpack, wore goggles all the time so you weren't able to see any form of compassion or kindness in his eyes, and always looked grumpy, now if that was done with Steve or anyone else claiming to be Captain America, would you say that the writer understood the Spirit of the Mantle. Where instead of what had been defined throughout the decades in Steve's run as a "kind, hopeful & compassionate person who took pride in his work", you got a "stoic, judgemental Hard-ass who viewed it as a chore", which is how Sam was written in-series. Not helping with his acceptance was that his run as Captain America had him heavily favouring Liberals standpoints, while ragging on Conservative ones.
As for Riri Williams, not going to deny it, she was one of Comicsgate's favourite punching bags for awhile. Mainly due to just how awfully she was written, and how unheroically she acted. Her personality was bland and she often talking like a little girl, but with a lot more "um's", her motivation for taking up the armour was initially presented as her trying to prove her teacher wrong when told she'd "never be... Tony Stark", which to the teacher on said after Riri stare at her teacher as if she was upset over not being discriminated against when she said she wanted to be an Astronaut. And the time she took over Latveria didn't paint a very heroic picture for her, and before you mention that the Fantastic Four also took over Latveria at one point, keep in mind that had been heroes for years & had been attacked by the ruler of Latveria; Doctor Doom, hundreds of times, so we knew that they had nothing but the best of intentions, while Riri was only just starting out and had only been attacked once by a Latverian we've never heard of before, making her intentions seem a bit muddier. What further contributed to her unpopularity was the fact that she literally took over The Invincible Iron Man title from Tony. If you want more insight into these issues, Comic Drake made a video comparing how Riri was written to Miles Morales, and later made a follow-up video that delved further into the issues, while also making valid points to debunk to some of the criticisms made about Riri. And when we heard that Eve Ewing, a political writer with no previous experience in comics was going to write her solo series, we were understandably worried that it was going to contain even more SJW politics and writing. However, every single one of us was glad to be wrong! Even Richard Meyer of Diversity and Comics, now renamed Comics MATTER w/Ya Boi Zack, said that he thought it was "pretty good" & saw potential in the series thanks to the fact that Eve wrote Riri as an actual person.
However, Marvel for the most part has dropped these SJW tendencies after the mess that was Secret Empire and it appears that Disney will be making changes to Marvel Comics to further rectify this. But even so, the term "SJW Marvel" has been around for awhile now, you can even Google it. And the problems that SJW culture has brought to the entertainment industry have gotten so huge, that even those who aren't involved in comics at all are complaining about it, such as The Mysterious Mr Enter
Though there are still those who buy into the SJW ideology trying to influence comics, I'll get into more examples later, but I going to tell you of a person experience I had with such a person on the Marvel sub-Reddit:
One of my posts titled "Character & Story Writing: Ms Marvel (2014) #1 vs Daredevil #1" featuring a video by Literature Devil got caught in the spam filter. When I went to the Moderators of this sub-reddit about it and was answered by the Moderator Ptylerdactyl who initially responded merely with:
Lol. Looks like the filter is working just fine.
And that's it, no explanation as to why he thought that, so I responded that the video wasn't spam, but an analysis and comparison of two comics. In response he said:
"Critical" and "analysis" are extraordinarily generous terms for a knockoff of other, just as stupid "rant culture" channels. The sub is not intended as a place for you to promote your shitty channel. I know you are very, very upset by wimmin in your comic books and movies, but if your response is to go and produce a bunch of videos about how much you hate it all, then maybe the ones overreacting are you. No thank you.
I proceeded to inform him that I didn't make the video and it wasn't from my channel and that the video was just a critical analysis of two comics, I also asked "what was with the tone" as I'm sure no one expects to be talked to like that from a Moderator when sorting out an issue. In a final response he said:
Buddy, "attitude" doesn't factor into this. Can you answer words instead of deciding to police my tone? Point is this: we're not indulging the comicsgate bullshit here. It's a movement that wants to do to comics what they've already done to gaming and build an increasingly intricate labyrinth around "being a fan" that shuts out anyone not adhering to the most restrictive in-group. It calls on comparisons to some fictitious, bygone era as a golden age of "quality" in order to shit on anything new made by women or ethnic minorities. It's a waste of our time and your intelligence. Per Rules 7 and 2, no. No alt-right echo chamber horseshit. It is high past time that some adult in your lives told you no.
He then immediately muted me for 3 days
The fact that it wasn't until his third message that he told me what rules he thought I was breaking and then immediately took away my ability to respond gave off the impression of extreme bias and a lack of professionalism
I've been in contact with other moderators before over other posts, and if they thought there was a rule been broken they immediately told me what it was, and if that rule was in fact been broken, I apologised to them and deleted the postBut the post I had made here never said anything mean or uncivil, nor did it promote such an attitude, so it wasn't breaking Rule 2. With Rule 7, I think it's a bit more debatable as it was asking "If Comicsgate has a point" but it directly examined the comics and their story & characters to answer that question, so it technically should only be political in the context of the comics, which Rule 7 allows for.
As soon as the 72 hours had passed, I once again messaged the Moderators to tell them about what had happened during my interaction with Ptylerdactyl. I ended up been banned while writing this post.
Now Kamala is a good character, even if her story does take a bit longer to kick into high gear. If I was to make any sort of criticism, it would be that her stories of late have been little more than single issue gimmicks. Though Marvel seems to have addressed that problem and relaunched her under a new title; Magnificent Ms Marvel, and a new writer; Saladin Ahmed, that looks pretty good.
And diversity is a good thing when done right, like with a lot of the new characters DC Comics has brought out as of late. For instance The Silencer has already made her Live-Action debut on Arrow, and the series New Super-Man was popular enough to avoid cancellation due to its excellent writing and characters. And this isn't me just kissing DC's butt, some of the stuff they've put out is terrible, like the Female Furies series which is a massive disservice to Granny Goodness, The Furies and their history.
Now this brings us to the Captain Marvel controversy. Before Brie Larson's comments, the only real concerns over whether or not it was going to be good were questions on which parts of her comic book history was going to be adapted, cause as Foundation for Economic Education pointed out, if they were to use her characterization from, say, Civil War II, then she was hardly going to be heroic. And even then, most people actually wanted to see the film with 96% of people on Rotten Tomatoes saying that they wanted to see it at the time. Then at the Women In Film Festival she singled out the number of "White Men" reviewing films as a problem, saying:
I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle In Time. It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.
And she might of said that she "doesn't hate White Men", but it's kinda like someone saying "I'm not racist, but...", you're naturally going to think that they do have some of those prejudices. America Uncovered went into further detail about the reactions to her comments and the films feminist ties, even bringing up negative tweets she made about men in the past. Even Ben Shapiro commented on what she said.
Plus the fact that she said it was a "big, Feminist film" and that it was going to explore Intersectional Feminism, didn't help since Intersectionality politics tend to just end up hating on Straight, White Men.
And there was also a bit of controversy about how she said we should "fix the problem":
If we took the Top 100 films added 9 critics, 3 underrepresented males, 3 white females, 3 underrepresented females, and the average critics pool would match the US population in just 5 years
In other words she was talking about having people picked out for a film review based solely on their skin color & gender. But there's nothing stopping them from becoming Top critics on their own, as all they need to do is put deliver good quality reviews and build up a good reputation, the only thing that might help them accomplish that is having a Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies & Journalism, which thanks to Affirmative Action Policies, Black People would have an easier time getting than White People. But by hiring them based solely on their skin color & race, you're kinda saying that they aren't good enough to do it themselves, and by constantly trying to force diversity that's representative of the US's population, a good number of White Men would have to excluded from career, based solely on their Race & Gender. Which is an attitude that has been showing up about a lot of things, in an attempt to achieve "equal representation", even when doing so ignore a lot of basic truths.
For instance, in 2011 it was revealed that 90% of Wikipedia edits are done by men, with number of women editing pages since only rising by about 4%, plus this trend was found to be rather consistent across Language groups. And there is no "gatekeeper" stopping women from editing those pages, guys just prefer adding information, making corrections & organizing stuff.
Now Brie Larson isn't a bad person, bad people don't post heartfelt thank-you videos for seeing their films or make surprise visits to people watching their films in the theatre. Personally, I think that she honestly believes in modern day Feminist ideology, which does spend most of it's time raging on men in general, and she's certainly free to believe whatever she wants to believe in, (I, myself, am no stranger to having controversial beliefs) but if she's going to express those beliefs, then she should try to do so with a bit more tact. If she had said something like this:
The majority of Film Critics are White Men, and they have done a great job! But I think we could benefit from hearing more from Women and People of Color, as they could provide input that we don't often get. So I am hear to say to them, speak up! We would all love to hear from you!
There wouldn't be any sort of controversy, as she wasn't presenting the presence of White Men as a problem, nor was she implying that Woman & Black People couldn't make it on their own. And wanting to hear from more voices and perspectives isn't a bad thing, in fact, one of the things Comicsgate stands against is hear the same thoughts and views over & over.
But that's not how she put things, and thus offended a lot of people who helped make the MCU what it is today in an attempt to draw in a new crowd. Now it would be great if more people would become part of the MCU Fanbase, or even the Superhero Fanbase as a whole, but in the effort to draw in new fans, do they really have to treat the current fans as something expendable, like when Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) called those who spoke out about it "butthurt".
Thus we made our feelings clear in the only ways we were able to, speaking out about it on YouTube and stating that we didn't want to see it on sites like Rotten Tomatoes, with the "Want To See" score dropping to 27% before it was removed and we were all called "Trolls", even though most of the comments made it clear that we didn't want to see it for the aforementioned reasons. They even deleted 50,000 negative reviews for Captain Marvel, claiming that it was just Bots, but a good number of them could've been legitimate reviews since the score only went up by about 3%, and if you wanna make the argument that a film getting 50,000+ fan reviews in a day is ridiculous, a lot of people would say the same about a film making half a Billion dollars in 4 days.
Now as you all know Rotten Tomatoes claimed that the removal was always planned and the timing was just a coincidence, but most of us didn't buy it as it is owned by Fandango, which is currently run by a former Disney Executive and this was later confirmed when Studio Executives admitted to silencing negative opinions on Captain Marvel, even getting YouTube to change it's algorithm concerning Captain Marvel.
And that's the problem, silencing negative opinions and calling anyone who criticizes the film a "Sexist" or a "Troll" is basically SJW 101, it allows them to just brush it all off cause as far as they're concerned, you've got nothing of substance to say. Thus a film could be mediocre or even downright terrible, and should they decide to make a sequel, it could end up been even worse as they refused to listen to people who pointed out it's flaws. For example, I went onto Rotten Tomatoes and the first negative review I found was by Daniel G and he said:
Total uninspired posturing and predictable lines. The movie simply didn't care about itself and the acting, save for a few bright spots by Law and Mendelsohn, was flat. Not worth watching.
and the review that immediately followed it by Brian W made moist of the same points:
Pretty boring, I almost fell asleep. Brie Larson's acting was not great and seemed robotic, also her one liners were terrible. I think out of all of the Marvel movies I laughed the least in this. Overall, very bland, I would almost recommend skipping it before Endgame.
Even Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) of Channel Awesome said that he just found the movie to be "okay" and he was "unsure about whether or not he wanted it to be a success", cause if it succeeded, then Marvel will think it can continue to get away with movies of that quality, but if it didn't, then they were just going to blame it on the lead been a woman.
But if Disney decides to just call them all "Sexist Trolls", then why bother shaking up the story, having Brie Larson show more emotion and having more jokes. And they can do this sort of thing with their future MCU films, since they have said that they're going to make future Phases more "diverse", where they can call criticism to a film starring a gay character "Homophobic", and they will do that, even if the criticism has nothing to do with the characters sexuality. Much like how they're doing so with Captain Marvel, where they call criticism of the film's Storytelling and pointing out of its Flaws, "Sexism" and "the work of Trolls", even though it has nothing to do with the characters gender.
And all film franchises need criticism, for instance when Thor: The Dark World bombed on Rotten Tomatoes, Chris Hemsworth vowed to do better and insisted on changes that helped make Thor: Ragnarok the awesome film that it is. And Captain Marvel has a far worse rating than either of those films, now if you ended up liking the film, like the host of No Bullshit did, then that's okay. But wouldn't it be great if we got an even better Captain Marvel film for the sequel. Even the host of No Bullshit still made a video highlighting SJW moments in the film.
But I'm sure there's some things we can agree on:
  1. Politics should not be put into a story if it does not contribute anything to the plot or character arcs
  2. Diversity should not come at the cost of good storytelling and characters
  3. All characters and their histories should be respected by current and future writers
  4. There should always be more to a character than their skin color, sexuality, gender or religion

It's a waste of our time and your intelligence. Per Rules 7 and 2, no. No alt-right echo chamber horseshit. It is high past time that some adult in your lives told you no.
He then immediately muted me for 3 days
The fact that it wasn't until his third message that he told me what rules he thought I was breaking and then immediately took away my ability to respond gave off the impression of extreme bias and a lack of professionalism
I've been in contact with other moderators before over other posts, and if they thought there was a rule been broken they immediately told me what it was, and if that rule was in fact been broken, I apologised to them and deleted the post. But the post I had made here never said anything mean or uncivil, nor did it promote such an attitude, so it wasn't breaking Rule 2. With Rule 7, I think it's a bit more debatable as it was asking "If Comicsgate has a point" but it directly examined the comics and their story & characters to answer that question, so it technically should only be political in the context of the comics, which Rule 7 allows for.
As soon as the 72 hours had passed, I once again messaged the Moderators to tell them about what had happened during my interaction with Ptylerdactyl. I ended up been banned while writing this post.
Now Kamala is a good character, even if her story does take a bit longer to kick into high gear. If I was to make any sort of criticism, it would be that her stories of late have been little more than single issue gimmicks. Though Marvel seems to have addressed that problem and relaunched her under a new title; Magnificent Ms Marvel, and a new writer; Saladin Ahmed, that looks pretty good.
And diversity is a good thing when done right, like with a lot of the new characters DC Comics has brought out as of late. For instance The Silencer has already made her Live-Action debut on Arrow, and the series New Super-Man was popular enough to avoid cancellation due to its excellent writing and characters. And this isn't me just kissing DC's butt, some of the stuff they've put out is terrible, like the Female Furies series which is a massive disservice to Granny Goodness, The Furies and their history.
Now this brings us to the Captain Marvel controversy. Before Brie Larson's comments, the only real concerns over whether or not it was going to be good were questions on which parts of her comic book history was going to be adapted, cause as Foundation for Economic Education pointed out, if they were to use her characterization from, say, Civil War II, then she was hardly going to be heroic. And even then, most people actually wanted to see the film with 96% of people on Rotten Tomatoes saying that they wanted to see it at the time. Then at the Women In Film Festival she singled out the number of "White Men" reviewing films as a problem, saying:
I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle In Time. It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.
And she might of said that she "doesn't hate White Men", but it's kinda like someone saying "I'm not racist, but...", you're naturally going to think that they do have some of those prejudices. America Uncovered went into further detail about the reactions to her comments and the films feminist ties, even bringing up negative tweets she made about men in the past. Even Ben Shapiro commented on what she said.
Plus the fact that she said it was a "big, Feminist film" and that it was going to explore Intersectional Feminism, didn't help since Intersectionality politics tend to just end up hating on Straight, White Men.
And there was also a bit of controversy about how she said we should "fix the problem":
If we took the Top 100 films added 9 critics, 3 underrepresented males, 3 white females, 3 underrepresented females, and the average critics pool would match the US population in just 5 years
In other words she was talking about having people picked out for a film review based solely on their skin color & gender. But there's nothing stopping them from becoming Top critics on their own, as all they need to do is put deliver good quality reviews and build up a good reputation, the only thing that might help them accomplish that is having a Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies & Journalism, which thanks to Affirmative Action Policies, Black People would have an easier time getting than White People. But by hiring them based solely on their skin color & race, you're kinda saying that they aren't good enough to do it themselves, and by constantly trying to force diversity that's representative of the US's population, a good number of White Men would have to excluded from career, based solely on their Race & Gender. Which is an attitude that has been showing up about a lot of things, in an attempt to achieve "equal representation", even when doing so ignore a lot of basic truths.
For instance, in 2011 it was revealed that 90% of Wikipedia edits are done by men, with number of women editing pages since only rising by about 4%, plus this trend was found to be rather consistent across Language groups. And there is no "gatekeeper" stopping women from editing those pages, guys just prefer adding information, making corrections & organizing stuff.
Now Brie Larson isn't a bad person, bad people don't post heartfelt thank-you videos for seeing their films or make surprise visits to people watching their films in the theatre. Personally, I think that she honestly believes in modern day Feminist ideology, which does spend most of it's time raging on men in general, and she's certainly free to believe whatever she wants to believe in, (I, myself, am no stranger to having controversial beliefs) but if she's going to express those beliefs, then she should try to do so with a bit more tact. If she had said something like this:
The majority of Film Critics are White Men, and they have done a great job! But I think we could benefit from hearing more from Women and People of Color, as they could provide input that we don't often get. So I am hear to say to them, speak up! We would all love to hear from you!
There wouldn't be any sort of controversy, as she wasn't presenting the presence of White Men as a problem, nor was she implying that Woman & Black People couldn't make it on their own. And wanting to hear from more voices and perspectives isn't a bad thing, in fact, one of the things Comicsgate stands against is hearing the same thoughts and views over & over.
But that's not how she put things, and thus offended a lot of people who helped make the MCU what it is today in an attempt to draw in a new crowd. Now it would be great if more people would become part of the MCU Fanbase, or even the Superhero Fanbase as a whole, but in the effort to draw in new fans, do they really have to treat the current fans as something expendable, like when Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) called those who spoke out about it "butthurt".
Thus we made our feelings clear in the only ways we were able to, speaking out about it on YouTube and stating that we didn't want to see it on sites like Rotten Tomatoes, with the "Want To See" score dropping to 27% before it was removed and we were all called "Trolls", even though most of the comments made it clear that we didn't want to see it for the aforementioned reasons. They even deleted 50,000 negative reviews for Captain Marvel, claiming that it was just Bots, but a good number of them could've been legitimate reviews since the score only went up by about 3%, and if you wanna make the argument that a film getting 50,000+ fan reviews in a day is ridiculous, a lot of people would say the same about a film making half a Billion dollars in 4 days.
Now as you all know Rotten Tomatoes claimed that the removal was always planned and the timing was just a coincidence, but most of us didn't buy it as it is owned by Fandango, which is currently run by a former Disney Executive and this was later confirmed when Studio Executives admitted to silencing negative opinions on Captain Marvel, even getting YouTube to change it's algorithm concerning Captain Marvel.
And that's the problem, silencing negative opinions and calling anyone who criticizes the film a "Sexist" or a "Troll" is basically SJW 101, it allows them to just brush it all off cause as far as they're concerned, you've got nothing of substance to say. Thus a film could be mediocre or even downright terrible, and should they decide to make a sequel, it could end up been even worse as they refused to listen to people who pointed out it's flaws. For example, I went onto Rotten Tomatoes and the first negative review I found was by Daniel G and he said:
Total uninspired posturing and predictable lines. The movie simply didn't care about itself and the acting, save for a few bright spots by Law and Mendelsohn, was flat. Not worth watching.
and the review that immediately followed it by Brian W made most of the same points:
Pretty boring, I almost fell asleep. Brie Larson's acting was not great and seemed robotic, also her one liners were terrible. I think out of all of the Marvel movies I laughed the least in this. Overall, very bland, I would almost recommend skipping it before Endgame.
Even Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) of Channel Awesome said that he just found the movie to be "okay" and he was "unsure about whether or not he wanted it to be a success", cause if it succeeded, then Marvel will think it can continue to get away with movies of that quality, but if it didn't, then they were just going to blame it on the lead been a woman.
But if Disney decides to just call them all "Sexist Trolls", then why bother shaking up the story, having Brie Larson show more emotion and having more jokes. And they can do this sort of thing with their future MCU films, since they have said that they're going to make future Phases more "diverse", where they can call criticism to a film starring a gay character "Homophobic", and they will do that, even if the criticism has nothing to do with the characters sexuality. Much like how they're doing so with Captain Marvel, where they call criticism of the film's Storytelling and pointing out of its Flaws, "Sexism" and "the work of Trolls", even though it has nothing to do with the characters gender.
And all film franchises need criticism, for instance when Thor: The Dark World bombed on Rotten Tomatoes, Chris Hemsworth vowed to do better and insisted on changes that helped make Thor: Ragnarok the awesome film that it is. And Captain Marvel has a far worse rating than either of those films, now if you ended up liking the film, like the host of No Bullshit did, then that's okay. But wouldn't it be great if we got an even better Captain Marvel film for the sequel. Even the host of No Bullshit still made a video highlighting SJW moments in the film.
But I'm sure there's some things we can agree on:
  1. Politics should not be put into a story if it does not contribute anything to the plot or character arcs
  2. Diversity should not come at the cost of good storytelling and characters
  3. All characters and their histories should be respected by current and future writers
  4. There should always be more to a character than their skin color, sexuality, gender or religion

2019.03.21 08:08 Logic_Meister What people mean when they say they don't want politics in comics

I'm writing this article in response to the controversy around the Captain Marvel film, and how it is similar to controversy that has happened for Marvel's comics in the past five or so years, in hopes of preventing further division within the Marvel fanbase, and maybe even unite us a bit, by allowing for understanding and opening up civil discussion & debate
Here’s why diversity in comics matters: Superhero movies, some of the most popular in history, have brought in people curious about comics. There is the opportunity to reach out to these fans, and offer them something they were there for at the beginning. Even though there should be more, and is more, to a good character than a shallow trait such as their race, gender or sexuality, seeing a character share such traits with you can be comforting and allow you to feel that you have somewhat of a good understanding of them. I can speak from personal experience that I have felt this when I read DC's Multiversity: Mastermen and saw that they had made Doll-Man and his wife Jehovah's Witnesses, even though they only got a few lines and appeared for two pages, I felt a connection to them.
However, I'm still a Comicsgater. Allow me to explain why:
It's important to note that there's quite few differences between how it happened in the past, & how it's happening now. Such as the inclusion of identity politics, & how such politics often involves bashing white males & non-left leaning position, an example is the Secret Empire event, where they made Steve Rogers a HYDRA Agent who rules America so they can bash Trump. At one point Riri, Miles & Patriot stop to complain about White Privilege. And even though White Privilege is a different debate, Miles; a kid with spider powers who got into a STEM school via lottery & gets training from Peter Parker, Riri: a 15 year old MIT student & Patriot: who got his tech from Tony Stark, are the last people who should be whining about it
But the biggest problems that caused Comicsgate is the forced change of pre-established characters, like when they turned Iceman gay, it's huge divulgation from decades long characterization, plus he started to act so differently, and it occurred over one page that was basically Jean going "Bobby, you're gay" and Iceman going "No I'm not" until Bobby said he was. Thus that it's common theory that what actually happened is that Jean Grey brainwashed him. In fact, I could give you a whole list of reasons for why Bobby to have spent all this time been secretly gay doesn't make sense narratively:
And it not like the X-Men lacked gay characters, in fact, one of the most famous and well-liked is NorthStar. And he had a widely celebrated gay wedding, which begs the question as to why that didn't inspire Bobby to come out, if he was in fact gay? Not helping is the fact that Bobby became a massive jerk after he "came out" along with acting like a gay stereotype. On the other hand, Jean has abused her power in the past and has even been corrupted by it. Her adult self was even making radically extreme choices in the X-Men Red series, and her child self had easily adapted to the current culture by her Solo series, and since the modern world is more accepting of Homosexuals, she probably thought she could get away with it (but that's just me speculating)
But if they wanted to have a solo series for a queer character, why not give on to the aforementioned NorthStar, or Shatterstar, or Daken, or Wiccan & Hulkling, or even just bring back Freedom Ring. (and that's just me going off the top of my head) A good example of someone they did this for was Loki who solo series Loki: Agent of Asgard and Vote Loki touched upon his long since pre-established gender-fluidity and no one complained, not even any of us so-called "bigots" at Comicsgate (And I double-checked to be sure) The most negative thing I could find about either series was a review for Vote Loki by a guy named Auran, who admitted that his main grievance was with the art and he didn't think the story was that good
They also had Jane Foster be Thor, (even though it was causing her cancer to kill her, against her level headed nurse character) and then take Thor's name for herself and had the actual Thor go by Odinson. Plus there's also the time Bor made an appearance in Angela Queen of Hel Issue 4 , which just raises the question; How does an ancient Asgardian deity who likely hasn't even been to Earth in tens of thousands of years even know what Israel is? Much less have unsolicited opinions on it?And here's an article stating that instead of just having Miles Morales around, Peter Parker should be turned into a Black guy for no reason other to fulfil a diversity quota
What makes it weirder for Marvel fans is that it's totally different from how they responded to Diversity demands 18-19 years ago. In fact, in that issue, they had Iron Man say:
We've talked about this before. We don't recruit for Skin Color.
The Avengers aren't about equal representation -- The squads are too small for that. We're about getting the job done -- and that's it.
We've had minority members for years -- from Black and Hispanic Heroes to Gypsies and Mythological Gods.
We'd never exclude anyone -- anyone -- because of their race.
And part of the problem is that we're told that we have to like these "diverse" characters or else we are sexist/racist/homophobic/bigoted/a Nazi/Alt-Right, even if they are poorly written, aren't particularly likable or are straight up replacing a beloved character. A couple of good examples are Sam Wilson a.k.a The Falcon when he took over the Captain America identity and Riri Williams;On paper the idea of Sam Wilson as a successor to Steve Rogers as Captain America makes sense, he has been his crime-fighting partner for decades. But in-story he never completely gave up the Falcon identity, (probably since doing so would be 'PC' as The Falcon was the first Black Superhero in comics) keeping the wings and goggles, plus there's the fact that he never smiled on the covers, even when nothing was happening in the background, and while Steve didn't always smile, especially to emphasise the seriousness of the comic, Sam never smiled, not even in-series, but rather had a look that made you think he was either angry, or trying to hold in a dump. Basically he was flying around on a glorified Jetpack, wore goggles all the time so you weren't able to see any form of compassion or kindness in his eyes, and always looked grumpy, now if that was done with Steve or anyone else claiming to be Captain America, would you say that the writer understood the Spirit of the Mantle. Where instead of what had been defined throughout the decades in Steve's run as a "kind, hopeful & compassionate person who took pride in his work", you got a "stoic, judgemental Hard-ass who viewed it as a chore", which is how Sam was written in-series. Not helping with his acceptance was that his run as Captain America had him heavily favouring Liberals standpoints, while ragging on Conservative ones.
As for Riri Williams, not going to deny it, she was one of Comicsgate's favourite punching bags for awhile. Mainly due to just how awfully she was written, and how unheroically she acted. Her personality was bland and she often talking like a little girl, but with a lot more "um's", her motivation for taking up the armour was initially presented as her trying to prove her teacher wrong when told she'd "never be... Tony Stark", which to the teacher on said after Riri stare at her teacher as if she was upset over not being discriminated against when she said she wanted to be an Astronaut. And the time she took over Latveria didn't paint a very heroic picture for her, and before you mention that the Fantastic Four also took over Latveria at one point, keep in mind that had been heroes for years & had been attacked by the ruler of Latveria; Doctor Doom, hundreds of times, so we knew that they had nothing but the best of intentions, while Riri was only just starting out and had only been attacked once by a Latverian we've never heard of before, making her intentions seem a bit muddier. What further contributed to her unpopularity was the fact that she literally took over The Invincible Iron Man title from Tony. If you want more insight into these issues, Comic Drake made a video comparing how Riri was written to Miles Morales, and later made a follow-up video that delved further into the issues, while also making valid points to debunk to some of the criticisms made about Riri. And when we heard that Eve Ewing, a political writer with no previous experience in comics was going to write her solo series, we were understandably worried that it was going to contain even more SJW politics and writing. However, every single one of us was glad to be wrong! Even Richard Meyer of Diversity and Comics, now renamed Comics MATTER w/Ya Boi Zack, said that he thought it was "pretty good" & saw potential in the series thanks to the fact that Eve wrote Riri as an actual person.
However, Marvel for the most part has dropped these SJW tendencies after the mess that was Secret Empire and it appears that Disney will be making changes to Marvel Comics to further rectify this. But even so, the term "SJW Marvel" has been around for awhile now, you can even Google it. And the problems that SJW culture has brought to the entertainment industry have gotten so huge, that even those who aren't involved in comics at all are complaining about it, such as The Mysterious Mr Enter
Though there are still those who buy into the SJW ideology trying to influence comics, I'll get into more examples later, but I going to tell you of a person experience I had with such a person on the Marvel sub-Reddit:
One of my posts titled "Character & Story Writing: Ms Marvel (2014) #1 vs Daredevil #1" featuring a video by Literature Devil got caught in the spam filter. When I went to the Moderators of this sub-reddit about it and was answered by the Moderator Ptylerdactyl who initially responded merely with:
Lol. Looks like the filter is working just fine.
And that's it, no explanation as to why he thought that, so I responded that the video wasn't spam, but an analysis and comparison of two comics. In response he said:
"Critical" and "analysis" are extraordinarily generous terms for a knockoff of other, just as stupid "rant culture" channels. The sub is not intended as a place for you to promote your shitty channel. I know you are very, very upset by wimmin in your comic books and movies, but if your response is to go and produce a bunch of videos about how much you hate it all, then maybe the ones overreacting are you. No thank you.
I proceeded to inform him that I didn't make the video and it wasn't from my channel and that the video was just a critical analysis of two comics, I also asked "what was with the tone" as I'm sure no one expects to be talked to like that from a Moderator when sorting out an issue. In a final response he said:
Buddy, "attitude" doesn't factor into this. Can you answer words instead of deciding to police my tone? Point is this: we're not indulging the comicsgate bullshit here. It's a movement that wants to do to comics what they've already done to gaming and build an increasingly intricate labyrinth around "being a fan" that shuts out anyone not adhering to the most restrictive in-group. It calls on comparisons to some fictitious, bygone era as a golden age of "quality" in order to shit on anything new made by women or ethnic minorities. It's a waste of our time and your intelligence. Per Rules 7 and 2, no. No alt-right echo chamber horseshit. It is high past time that some adult in your lives told you no.
He then immediately muted me for 3 days
The fact that it wasn't until his third message that he told me what rules he thought I was breaking and then immediately took away my ability to respond gave off the impression of extreme bias and a lack of professionalism
I've been in contact with other moderators before over other posts, and if they thought there was a rule been broken they immediately told me what it was, and if that rule was in fact been broken, I apologised to them and deleted the postBut the post I had made here never said anything mean or uncivil, nor did it promote such an attitude, so it wasn't breaking Rule 2.

2019.02.08 17:27 ZandrickEllison What were your favorite trades of the week? Here are my top 3

As much as we like to crap on sites like ESPN, it's amazing that writers like Kevin Pelton are able to crank out full analysis and grades for every single trade seemingly the minute they happen.
But we're not just here to read and share them; we're here to offer our own two cents as well. So with that in mind, here are my top 3 favorite trades personally (and submit your own down below.)
Orlando trades SF Jonathon Simmons, R1 pick, R2 pick for PG Markelle Fultz
Note: I'm ranking my favorite team moves from their own perspective, but that doesn't necessarily mean the other team did a bad job on their end. Philadelphia will spend their summer debating fat extensions for Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, so money matters more to them right now. Because Markelle Fultz was a # 1 pick, his rookie deal isn't as affordable as others. He's slated to make $8M this season, $9.7M next year, and then has a team option for $12.3M. I can understand why the Sixers may have been ready to wash their hands of this mess.
But from Orlando's perspective, I love the gamble. The cap won't be a big concern of theirs for several years now. This is a young team that's in a deep rebuild. They can "waste" $9M on a lottery ticket on Fultz; even if he's a complete dud, it won't affect them much in the long run.
And personally, I'm not willing to write Fultz off as a total bust yet. Yes, he has some serious issues with his shot (and maybe shoulder?) That said, we've seen over the last few years that you don't necessarily need to be a dead-eye shooter to succeed in the NBA. You probably do if you're going to be playing off the ball (alongside a non-shooter like Ben Simmons), but that won't be his role here in Orlando. He'll have every chance to be the scoring lead guard that he was back in college.
Fultz not only (potentially) fills a huge hole at PG for Orlando, he fits in with their team philosophy as well. Dating back to his days in Milwaukee, GM John Hammond clearly values "length." He drafted Giannis for the Bucks, and Jon Isaac and Mo Bamba for the Magic. Fultz may not be an otherworldly athlete, but he has great size for the PG position at 6'4" with a 6'9" wingspan. He fits in with Hammond's vision of a Jurassic Park lineup, but provides them with a player who's more of a natural scorer. The idea of him being the next James Harden may be out the window, but there's still a chance he's a 20 PPG scorer for them going forward.
To me, that's worth the moderate price here. Losing OKC's 2020 pick will sting the most, but I'd count on that being in the 25 range. If I ran the Magic, I'd give up the # 25 pick for a flier on Fultz. The upside is clearly worth the cost.
Sacramento trades SF Justin Jackson and PF Zach Randolph for SF Harrison Barnes
In a vacuum, acquiring Harrison Barnes (owed $24M with a $25M player option next year) is not a slam dunk move. He's slightly overpaid on that contract, and may not even re-sign in the first place.
That said, we have to consider circumstance and context. Like Orlando, Sacramento is not terribly concerned about their cap sheet right now. In fact, they had the lowest payroll in the entire NBA. Moreover, their young stars like De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield are still locked up under their rookie contracts. Unlike Fultz, their deals are cheap: they'll be making a combined $10M next year. Given that, the Kings can afford to (over)pay Harrison Barnes right now.
What I like most about this trade is that it works in several different timelines. With the L.A. Clippers (currently in the 8th seed) folding their cards, there's an open lane for the playoffs out West. The Kings (at 28-26 and in 9th) have a chance to steal that ticket. In theory. In reality, it would have been tough. LeBron and the Lakers are healthy and breathing down their necks.
Moreover, these Kings have several signs of "regression" coming their way. They had a negative -1.6 point differential on the year. Several of their players were overachieving from three as well, which tends to regress to the mean. The bottom line is: this team would have struggled to stay above .500 without a move like this.
Adding a solid player and big wing like Harrison Barnes gives them some credible chance of staying in the playoff hunt. Their best hope may be in LeBron James gets re-injured (or gets brought up on murder charges against Lavar Ball), but at least it's something. Kings fans can actually root for a playoff chase post the All-Star break; that's a win.
But what I like most about this trade is that it's not a desperate and ill-conceived "win now!" attempt. The Kings are still keenly aware that their best chance to make serious waves will happen 2-3 years down the line.
But through that lens, Harrison Barnes still fits. Despite being in the league for quite a while, Barnes is still only 26 years old; he has 4 more years of prime play left in him. He also has the versatility and strength to play SF or PF, two areas that have been weaker spots for the Kings recently.
The idea of Harrison Barnes as a stretch 4 also intrigues me for this team. In my mind, Marvin Bagley III's best position will ultimately end up being at center. He doesn't have great length, but he has remarkable fluidity for the position and would be a true mismatch on that end. He can abuse slower centers and become a 20-10 player as soon as next year. If the Kings trot out a lineup of De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Harrison Barnes, and Marvin Bagley, they'll light up scoreboards like Pop-A-Shot. With those expectations in mind (as a 4th star as opposed to a go-to guy), Harrison Barnes makes a ton of sense for a small market team looking to take advantage of their good young players.
L.A. Lakers trade SF Svi Mykhailiuk and R2 pick for SF Reggie Bullock
I know that Lakers fans were high on the shooting potential of young Svi Mykhailiuk, but we have to be pragmatic here. LeBron James does not mess around with young players like that. Hell, he barely has the patience for second and third year players. Mykhailiuk may never have sniffed meaningful minutes for this team for several years, making his bargain-contract less vital for this particular club.
In his place, they're getting Reggie Bullock, someone that casual fans may not know well. After a slow start to his career, Bullock has developed into one of the most underrated (and underpaid) players in the NBA over the last few years in Detroit.
Bullock is a shooting wing, in a league starving for shooting wings. And he's more than a pretty good shooter; he's close to "great." Bullock has made 38.8% of his threes this season (on a healthy 6.7 attempts), but that's nothing new for him. He's been over 38% each of the last four seasons, and sports a career 39.8% mark. With LeBron James getting him open shots? He may clear 40% with regularity. While Bullock isn't a great defender, he's capable and has solid size at 6'7". He can play either the SG or SF spots for the Lakers going forward. He may not start right away as he acclimates to the team, but he should be a major part of their rotation.
The one downside of Reggie Bullock is that he's not going to stay cheap and underpaid forever. In fact, he's an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Lakers should try to re-sign him, but they obviously will have some bigger fish to fry first.
But even if you're viewing Bullock as a mere rental, he still makes sense for the Lakers. We're living in a bizarro world where the 8th spot will come down to the "King" versus the Kings, of all teams. And those Kings, as mentioned, just improved. You'd still give LeBron James a decided edge over a young team like that, but this helps stack the deck even more in his favor.
Moreover, we may have to re-assess the Lakers' upside right now. With the drama of Anthony Davis behind them (for now), their team may coalesce together and make a strong playoff push. Despite all their roster-building flaws, the Lakers now have a healthy supply of decent rotational players in tow. Lonzo Ball, Rajon Rondo, Josh Hart, KCP, Reggie Bullock, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Mike Muscala, JaVale McGee, Tyson Chandler... none of these are great players right now, but they're all serviceable. Give LeBron James a decent roster, and he has a puncher's chance against any team in the West outside of Golden State.
The other reason that I'm hopeful that Reggie Bullock can become more of a prominent name is because he has a good cause. His sister (born male, transitioned to female) was murdered back in 2014. Since then, Bullock has been an outspoken advocate for LGBT causes.
The NBA community (the league, the players, the fans) tends to be younger and more progressive than other sports, but we're still lagging behind in regards to homophobia. We saw that play out firsthand with all the jokes about the Dwight Howard situation.
Embracing the LGBT community should be a priority for the NBA, for several reasons. My wife happens to work in infectious disease and HIV prevention down here in Los Angeles, and speaks about how the stigma against gay and transgender youth contributes to a lack of treatment and preventative measures like PrEP. It's doubly true in the trans community, as well as the black community. A 2017 study showed that African-Americans account for around 13% of the U.S. population, but over 40% of the new HIV diagnoses. Alternatively, transgender folks are over 40 times more likely to have HIV than the general population. These are topics that the league should "NBA care" about, and Bullock may be a good spokesperson for that cause.
Of course, he'll be an even better spokesperson if he shoots well and helps the Lakers out this season, which I believe he will.

2019.01.20 07:03 bathrobeDFS bathrobeDFS - Daily Analysis for January 20th and Review of January 19th (Plus Full Analysis of NFL Conference Finals Slate)

Hello, everyone! bathrobeDFS here with your daily basketball article. First, I will breakdown my lineup for yesterday’s main slate. Then I will go over tonight’s slate from the perspective of a one lineup player on Draftkings. If you have any additional questions or want to see guaranteed updates in regards to breaking news- I provide additional updates, information, and stats on my twitter @bathrobeDFS. Feel free to throw me a follow cause it’s much easier and more timely to provide updates over that medium. It also should go without saying, this is just a preliminary analysis of the slate: everything can change throughout the day, so make sure you are staying on top of any and all injury news and change your lineups accordingly! I am always available to help with any questions there, as well, even if I can’t do a second article. Let’s get started with the Review!
I posted this in my Good Chalk/Bad Chalk, but I wanted to post it again in case anyone didn’t see it:
Before I get into the nitty gritty of basketball stuff, I want to say thank you to everyone for your good vibes and thoughts and prayers and kind words. It is a tough time, and I really do feel all that love. I couldn’t respond to all of you personally, cause I wanted to get this article done, but know that I read and upvoted (or liked on twitter) every single one, and I will carry of them with me in my heart. This is a really wonderful community, filled with really wonderful people, and I couldn’t be any more grateful for all of you, and your collective kindnesses. I will ask though, I will be ok. I am going to have it hard, like most of us when we lose someone we love. But please send those thoughts and prayers and vibes to her family and kids. They are the ones who need it a hell of a lot more than me.
I couldn’t mean it any more strongly when I say I love all of you, truly, and I wish I could better put into words how much it really meant to me to wake up to 30+ messages from people offering their love and support. Just truly beautiful. So thank you all, again. From the bottom of my (and my family’s) heart.
Let’s get down to business. We ain’t got no time to fuck around. What is this?
Yesterday In Review:
The Bathrobe vs. Pocket_Saand Head-To-Head Series:
He is Cash. I am GPP. Let’s keep track of how a daily head-to-head stack up. OOOOOOOOOH baby! That’s 2 in a row!!
283.00-243.75
Overall Record; 2-3
My Lineup- - This is the one lineup I enter into GPPs
Name Price DKP Value Proj Own Real Own Diff
Kyrie 9400 45.75 4.9x 15% 15.7% 0.7

Best Possible Lineup- - Using the free lineup rewind tool on fantasycruncher, I find the highest possible lineup that could have been played.
Name Price DKP
Wade 4800 37.5
Danny Green 4500 47.25
Huerter 5300 40.5
Kuzma 7500 51
JaVale McGee 4600 36
Waiters 3500 32.5
Eric Gordon 5900 43.75
Harden 13400 78
Total 49500 366.5
Analysis-
I built around Harden today, as I knew I was going to. Then the question settled in: who do I build around. I had a Kuzma/Luka lineup that I was really happy for. But something just told me I needed to go with Kyrie/Collins stack. I thought Collins would be able to attack the Celtics at their weakest spot, and keep this game close by himself. And then the ball would be in Kyrie’s court (pun not intended). Then I wanted Brown as a punt from that game, as someone who gets a lot of bench run, especially with no Hayward. He has shot the ball a bunch so far and just keeps banging it off the rim. Sucks. I also locked in Isaac with Gordon out, since he was in such a great spot and I thought the game had a chance to blow out, which would give him extra run against backups. I then had 2 spots left. After Gasol and Tristan were listed out within minutes of each other, I wanted to get to Rabb, who was 3100 and would get a lot of the backup and blowout run, and that left me enough to get Zizic in as well. It all pieced together very well, and yet i wasn’t as happy as I was with the Kuzma/Doncic lineup. Eventually Doncic got ejected so, even if Kuzma goes absolutely nuts, Kyrie/Collins should be able to outpace that. Now it’s just a question of how the punts perform. So far, badly. But we will see! The night is still early.
The Daily Slate:
With the 3 game slate, let’s break things down a little differently this time.
Hornets vs Pacers - OveUnder - 219, Spread - IND -7.5
Stats and Misc
  • Slower, Pace-Neutral Matchup for both teams: Hornets are 22nd, Pacers 19th.
  • Both Teams are coming off a back-to-back. Charlotte had an early game and travelled from home. Indiana was home both games. Therefore this shouldn’t really factor into production, but presents a question about limiting minutes.
  • Other than Zeller, there is no injury news.
  • Hornets is a weaker than average D overall. They are weakest against PF and Cs (this is backed up by the fact Biyombo and Hernangomez are 2 of the worst defensive Centers in the NBA). They are also below league average against PGs and SGs.
  • Pacers are above average D overall. They are below league average against SG and PF.
  • The following players are top 50 in Usage: Kemba (8th), Oladipo (26th), Tyreke (32nd), Tony Parker (44th).
  • The following players are top 10 in DRPM: Collison (10th-PG), Oladipo (5th-SG), Thad Young (10th-PF), Myles (5th-C).
Players
Kemba (8100) - Kemba seems to finally be out of his slump. He had another fine day yesterday putting up 21p/83a/2s/1b. All this while still only shooting 9-22. He has seen a notable decrease in production not just because he was cold though, but because the Centers for the Hornets are really bad, and Kemba has been having problems running the team without Zeller in the 5 hole. I expect him to see the defense of Oladipo here, so I will look to spend salary elsewhere.
Oladipo (7800) - He is still mired in a huge slump. I don’t know if it’s an injury he’s trying to play through or what, but I just can’t go there when he’s producing like someone priced in the low 6000s. If you want to take the chance against a mediocre Hornets D, I wouldn’t stop you. But I would have no Oladipo tonight
Turner (6800)/Sabonis (6500) - If you look above, the Hornets are, by far, weakest against bigs. This means I have a lot of interest in both this guys. Sabonis is finally priced like a backup again. Turner only had to play 24 minutes yesterday, so he should be able to play a full complement of minutes tonight if need be, and if he does, he should eat against whoever the Hornets throw out there.
Jeremy Lamb (5400) - With Oladipo on Kemba, Collison, who is a fine defender in his own right, will be on Lamb. I still would classify this as a much easier matchup for Lamb than Kemba. I would have a lot of interest in him as a mid priced play, assuming he gets his normal run of 30+ minutes and sees extra shooting with Kemba slightly tempered.
Bojan Bogdanovic (5300) - Bojan had one of those terrible shooting games that happens sometimes to shooters. Even though he was in the best spot against the Mavs perimeter D, he only went 2-10 including 0-4 from 3. He only managed 9 points, but still got 7 rebounds. This will take people off him (especially people that played him today, of which I was almost one). But, as long as Oladipo is cold, I will still go here. Hopefully tomorrow his shot falls and he gets 5x his price in raw points.
Hernangomez (4400)/Biyombo (3800) - if you wanna take a punt tomorrow on one of the 2 Centers the Hornets will play tomorrow, I understand. They are in a tough matchup against the Pacers, and Turner specifically, who is 5th in DRPM for Centers, but at those prices, if either of them is the one to get the majority of minutes, they should pay off that price easily.
Suns vs Wolves - O/U - 227, Spread - MIN -10.5
Stats and Misc
  • Faster, Pace-Neutral Matchup. Suns are 10th in pace and the Wolves are 14th.
  • Suns are on the 2nd night of a back-to-back but, like the Hornets, the game was early and they had plenty of time to travel and get some sleep
  • Ayton and Holmes were both forced to leave yesterday’s game and are Questionable, with Crawford who missed the game. On the Wolves side, RoCo is out, as is Tyus Jones.
  • PHX is one of the worst Ds in the NBA. According to DvP and DKPPG they are weakest against PG, then C, then SGs. They have no one in the top 10 in DRPM but 3 starters in the bottom 5 with Booker the 2nd worst SG, Warren the 4th worst SF, and Ayton the 3rd worst C.
  • MIN is also a weak D, though not as bad as PHX. With Covington out, they are significantly weaker and he has no return date as of right now. RoCo is their only player in the top 10 in DRPM, and they have 2 starters in the bottom 5- Wiggins is the 3rd worst SF and Towns is the 5th worst C.
  • The following players are top 50 in Usage: Booker (3rd), Rose (33rd), KAT (35th)
  • The following players are top 10 in DRPM: NONE
Players
KAT (10600) - KAT would almost certainly be my MSC play of the day if it wasn’t a 3 gamer. Even though we don’t know the status of the Suns Centers, it won’t matter (except that if Ayton is out, this game is more likely to blow out). KAT will either deal with Ayton, one of the worst defenders in the NBA, or he will have to deal with Bender or Quincy Acy. Either way, he should have a field day tomorrow. He is significantly more expensive than the next closest player on the slate, and he may be absolute chalk, but it’s not unwarranted. He should EASILY be one of the top performers tonight.
Booker (8300) - Booker has had all minutes limitations lifted. And that’s a good thing, cause even though his game blew out yesterday, he still played 37 minutes and put up 32 points and 11 assists. He had more assists than the rest of his team combined. So if you get a ballhandling Booker, taking 20+ shots a game, and playing upper 30s minutes even in blowouts… I mean, what’s not to love? You think Teague or Rose are going to be able to stop him?? Tyus and RoCo may be their best 2 defenders and they are out. I am gonna ride with Booker tonight in hopes he keeps this game close by himself.
Ayton (7300)/Holmes (3800) - As I discussed earlier, KAT is one of the worst defenders in the NBA as well. Both Ayton and Holmes got pulled from the game yesterday and couldn’t return due to injury. If may have had to do with the fact it was a blow out. There seemed to be no news after the game that indicated what the severity of the injuries were, or anything more than they are both questionable for tonight. If Ayton plays, he’s an awesome play tonight. If he doesn’t and Holmes does, he’s my play of the day (and if Ayton and Holmes both play, I will still be heavy on Holmes here). If both manage to miss, the C spot for Phoenix will be manned by a combination of Quincy Acy (3000) who got almost 10 minutes yesterday, and Bender (3000) who got 3. I would expect a similar type of ratio tomorrow in case both other guys are out. With KAT on the other side, and Taj Gibson at the 4, I can’t imagine they will be able to go small, meaning these 2 guys would be forced into heavy minutes.
Wiggins (6600) - He had a few good games, but those were freak occurrences. Things like everyone else being out. Or Teague getting ejected. If a normal game happens, and that is what I assume, Wiggins, and his 3 straight games under 30 DKP, can take a hard pass.
Rose (6400)/Teague (6300) - The Suns, as noted above, are not only terrible against Centers, but they are also horrible against guards. Melton is bad and Booker is horrible. With Tyus out, both should be able to push for 30 minutes, Rose gets extra bump for going against the 2nd unit and having some blow out run.
Oubre (5700) - Oubre has been becoming a more significant part of the Suns offense lately and his price increase demonstrates that. However, he keeps providing solid production in the 30s DKP, and will get run in any game situation. I don’t know how more people aren’t on him tonight.
Mikal Bridges (4000) - Bridges is always one of my favorite punt plays. He will take 8 shots, and has the potential to get rebounds, assists, blocks and steals every game. People like that have a really safe floor, especially when they are going to play 30 minutes, regardless of game situation. If his shots fall tonight, he could get close to 30 DKP again, and, again, no one will be on him.
Clippers vs Spurs - O/U and Spread NOT OUT YET
Stats and Misc
  • Clippers (6th in pace) will be in a pace down environment in SA against the Spurs (23rd in pace). Obviously, like Chuck Taylor, the converse of that is also true.
  • LouWill and Gallo are DOUBTFUL for the Clippers. DeRozan is PROBABLE, but he has said he feels fine and will definitely play.
  • Clippers are one of the worst Ds in the NBA, even though no one is in the bottom 5 in DRPM. Over the last month, no one has given up as many points to any position as the Clippers have to Centers (translation: that’s fucking bad). They are also 2nd worst in the NBA in the last month against PFs. Additionally, they are well below league average against PGs
  • The Spurs have been one of the best defenses the last month and a half or so, after an abysmal start to the year. Over the last month, the only position they are below average against is PG, and that is slight.
  • The following players are top 50 in usage: LouWill (3rd), DeRozan (23rd), and LMA (42nd)
  • The following players are top 10 in DRPM: White (7th-PG), Gay (6th-SF)
Players
LMA (8500) - If you look above, you see that the Clippers are weakest against Cs and 2nd weakest against PFs in the NBA. LMA will be playing either position (mainly C with everyone healthy tomorrow). This makes him instantly one of my favorite plays of the day. We don’t know what the O/U will be, or if this game is expected to blow out (and with the injuries I am worried about that), but this is one of those situations that LMA is in such a good spot that it doesn’t matter. You have to run with it anyway. He has the skill to put up 60+ DKP today against these Clippers, and I don’t expect enough people will be on him.
DeRozan (8400) - I expect DeRozan, who is nursing an injury, to hit the ground running, trying to get back in the swing of things after taking questions about slumping recently. Still, given how much his price is, and given he is battling a hurt ankle (and not, say, the flu), he may have serious problems pushing off and getting the drive he needs to be as successful as he is used to. With LMA in such a good spot, I will spend the money on him today while waiting to see how good DeRozan looks
Tobias Harris (7600) - A couple nights ago, after LouWill was declared out and Gallo went down with his injury, Harris took the game into his hands and produced like someone priced in the 9000s. Well both of those players are going to be out again and, even though the Spurs should focus on him, he is going to be the main play in this offense, and the viability of this game is almost definitely going to come down to how good a game he is having. I will look to have both him and LMA, barring insane ownership or a -15 spread from Vegas.
Montrezl (6900) - While he will probably asked to do more with the injuries to the other players, Montrezl is just someone you can not play if Lou Williams is out (his production craters). And, with LouWill taking a seat tomorrow, so will my interest in Montrezl.
Derrick White (5600) - As much I love White, his hustle, and his D, this price is getting a little too high to pay in GPP where his upside will be limited by DeRozan, Gay, and LMA. He, as the PG, will be in a great spot against the horrible PG defense of the Clippers, and he should be able to get a extra steals against them, but I don’t think I will have the money needed to get here.
Gay (5500) - Somehow Gay is priced under White. I don’t know how that happened. Gay is the 3rd option in this offense. He just put up 36 DKP in 34 minutes, and he can be safely counted on for around 1 DK PPM. If he gets 30+ minutes tomorrow, he will EASILY pay off that price. It’s not even a question.
SGA (4700) - With LouWill out, they just decided to not let SGA sit last game. He played more than 42 minutes, put up 17 shots, and scored 24 real points and 40.25 DKP. His price went up 1100 in one game but, if he is going to shoulder LouWill’s load (who is 3rd in the NBA in usage), he is going to be able to pay this salary off in droves. Even going against the plus D of White, he will see plenty of other defenders if he only sits for 5 minutes a game.
Belinelli (4300) with DeMar back, and his price over 4k, I will not have interest here. He needs to go back to 3800 or lower and I won’t mind punting with him. Now he needs to get over 25 for me to be happy, and it just may not be there for him tonight.
PatBev (3900)/Bradley (3600) - Another function of LouWill missing tonight’s game is a guaranteed buttload of minutes going to PatBev and Bradley. They are both bad PPM producers, but if they both can get in the mid 20s minutes, they have a chance as a GPP dart, to pay off for you and thensome.

QB
I don’t think any of the 4 options are terrible, first of all. What concerns me is a few things: The Saints really like running the ball with Kamara and Ingram healthy. While a lot of Kamara production could come with Brees, it isn’t guaranteed. Similarly, the Rams like running it in with Gurley or, now, CJ Anderson. Additionally, the Chiefs are 32nd against the run, which should reduce how much I like Brady. While Damien Williams will have some space to run between red zones, the Patriots are really hard to score on with RBs. That means that I expect a majority of the scoring, including the scoring by Williams, to come from passes. For this reason, I give the edge to Maholmes (6600). I would have expected him to be 50% owned. So, while the fact that anyone could be the best today means I would want his ownership around 25%, it isn’t high enough that I would be off him in GPPs (and ownership doesn’t matter in cash).
RB
The best way to move the ball against the Chiefs is with short passes. As weak as they are against the run, they are equally as bad against defending within 10-15 yards of the line of scrimmage. For this reason, my favorite RB on the day, especially considering his ownership, is James White (5400). He was targeted SEVENTEEN times last week, so on DK, where you get 1 PPR, he is going to be absolutely gold this slate. Additionally, short passes are going to be crucial to stopping the awesome pass rush the Chiefs have, so White is going to get a lot of action, planned or not. Stat wise, the Chiefs gave up the 10th most catches, 3rd most yards, and the most touchdowns to pass catching backs. Part of this is a function of the fact they allow an insanely high completion % on passes on the center and right side of the field within 15 yards of the LoS (thanks to JM for a couple of those stats).
Given the way the Saints have shown they will lean on him in the biggest situations, my second favorite play is Kamara (6500). If you read JM, you know that the Rams general defensive plan is to pass rush, which opens up the field for pass catchers (much like with James White). Last week, however, they identified that the biggest threat was Elliot, so they changed their defensive plan up, scheming to stop Zeke and, effectively, “daring Dak to beat them.” Well, Drew Brees sure as hell isn’t Dak, and I imagine the Rams will stick to their normal defense in this game instead of giving Brees any upper hand. For this reason, the game sets up well for Kamara. Not only will he gets a lion’s share of passing work, he should be able to get the lion’s share of all work. While they tried to have more of a split between him and Ingram in the regular season, the playoffs are different. Last week, Kamara rushed 16 times and was targeted 4. Ingram only rushed 9 and was targeted 2. While Ingram put up 53 yards, one of these was a broken 36 yard run. That means he only got 17 yards on his other 8 rushes. In terms of snap count, Kamara had 51 to Ingram’s 29. In a must win game, they are going to stick to their best pieces, and one of the best in the game is Kamara.
Damien Williams (6400) is in an incredible spot tomorrow, as I stated before, in terms of space he will have to run. That is, until the Chiefs hit the red zone. Then they are going to need to throw. While Williams is certainly going to be used in the pass attack, and I fully expect Williams to clear 100 yards (and get the bonus), I am not convinced he will get a TD tonight. I am also not convinced Ware (4200) won’t get some decent run, given what he has historically given the team, and his success in the past. For this, I would rather have Kamara, and Edelman priced around him.
WR
The Patriots primarily play man defense (though Belichick is always subject to change his game plan, as he often does). Holy shit. Hold the fuck on. First of all, I’ve been spelling Belichick wrong the last decade plus. Second, spellcheck KNEW I spelled Belichick wrong and told me it was wrong!? Wow! That is famous. Sorry, back to football. We were talking about the man coverage heavy Pats. This opens up increased potential for explosive plays if something goes wrong. Even though the Pats are effective, ranking 31st this season against passes of over 20 yards (allowing a 26% success rate there) they saw the highest % of passes of over 20 yards (more than 15% of all passes against them was for over 20 yards), a function of the man D. Tyreek Hill (7700) is a whole other animal, though, and he can make a man D go wrong real quick. He proved it in week 7 when, on only 12 targets, he put up 7 catches for 142 yards, and THREE touchdowns. Additionally, as I referred to when talking about Maholmes, the Pats allowed 80.5% of all TDs scored against them to be by the pass, 2nd worst in the NFL. When you mix all this with the fact that the Pats have had incredible success stopping Kelce (in 2 career games combined he got 5 receptions for 40 yards and then 5 receptions for 61 yards with no TDs), I am even more intrigued by Hill. I am also fine with pivoting down to Watkins (4000) if you are worried that the Pats will sell out to stop Hill (which, even if they do, I will take a shot on his talent).
For the same reason I like James White, my 2nd favorite WR is Edelman (6600). They are going to have to throw a lot of short passes to move the ball down the field. That is the place where White and Edelman live, and I will be all over both of them
My 3rd favorite play today is Ted Ginn (4300). I didn’t really check ownership last week (I find it less important in 4 game slates then in 2). Apparently, last week was Ted Ginn chalk week for some reason and he bombed. That doesn’t change the fact that, before I found this out, I loved Ginn in this spot. He is the clear #3 option here (behind MT and Kamara), and he will have a ton of chances in this high scoring game against the Rams. Plus, with both Kirkwood and Watson out, the amount of options the Saints have will be down two decent pieces. While 60%+ of lineups will have MT, I don’t think it’s crazy at all that he finishes behind Tyreek in terms of raw points, and Ginn in terms of value on his team. A lot of people are going to look at the last time these two teams met up. While relevant, that doesn’t mean that lessons weren’t learned by the teams. Last time these guys played, Aqib Talib was injured and didn’t see the field. This meant that MT saw the defense of Marcus Peters who he absolutely embarrassed to the tune of 211 yards and a TD. With Talib back, MT should have a tougher time and this should mean an easier time for Ginn. As of right now, I have MT in my flex, so it’s not like I think he’s a bad play today. I just really like the spot for Ginn and will be prioritizing him in this spot today.
As we can see, the Saints are really, really good against the run and really bad against the pass (DK has them 32nd, but they are not that bad). This means a couple things; First, a better spot for Gurley then CJ in the running game. But also that the 3 Rams WRs are all in great spots. Since Kupp went down, the Rams have really focused on the run, but this is a matchup that should force them to keep the ball in the air, whether they want to or not. My favorite is Cooks (5300) who is cheaper, and riskier, but lines up well against a Saints weakness. Like the Pats, the Saints give up a lot of 20+ yard passes, meaning Cooks has a good chance, like Hill, of popping off a giant play and breaking this slate wide open. Woods (5700) is the safer play, and has a great chance of popping off a good game and a TD. Reynolds (4200) would be a great punt play, as well, if the Rams were forced to throw more than usual, given he is the 4th option (if you include Gurley). You want as many passes as possible in order for targets to trickle down the line that far.
At the lower end, I can understand playing Dorsett (3900) in this matchup, who should see a lot of short passes too. With Kirkwood out, Tre Smith (3600) also enters the discussion as a low priced punt play today since he will be the WR playing the 3 WR sets now, and could soak up Kirkwood’s red zone looks too.
TE
Call me crazy, but this is where I am looking to really buck the field. I already explained in my write up of Tyreek why Kelce is a risky play against NE, given his history and his price of 7100. That’s the 4th most expensive FLEX play overall.
Gronk (4800) is my 2nd favorite play today and where I may end up when all is said and done. He has been playing poorly lately, but he has been playing poorly against teams that were really good against TEs. To once again take some stats from JM- the Chiefs defense has “allowed the fifth most catches, the sixth most yards, and the most touchdowns to the tight end position.” This isn’t just a good spot for Gronk, it’s one of the best. He looks like a shell of a Gronk, though, so I understand if you are wary.
With Ben Watson and Kirkwood being listed as out, my favorite TE is play is the one that no one will be on: Josh Hill (2500). This is purely a GPP play, mind you. You are hoping for 4-5 receptions for 50 yards or so and a TD. But, given the other options Brees will have available, and the good Corners of the Rams that might be able to take the WRs away in the end zone, I wouldn’t be shocked, at all, if Hill and Kamara are responsible for the first couple TDs the Saints score. Plus, this opens up your entire roster. You can now play anyone you want. And all you have to do is not play Kelce and hope Gronk stays a husk of himself.
Def
Both these games are gonna be fucking nuts. So I am going to take the lowest owned defense that happens to be the lowest priced, and going against the team I expect to throw it the most into man coverage (where they can get some picks if Maholmes is off). So give me all of the Pats (2100) D. If all of them are in bad spots, I might as well take the one going against the least runs that will, again, let you play whoever you want tonight.
Ok, that is my longest write up ever. Over 30k characters. I almost hit the Reddit post limit. At least it took my mind off everything! Hope you all enjoy this. I really like all these games, and this should be a REALLY fun day of sports. I can wait to share it with you all.

2019.01.01 22:24 PM_ME_WACKY_TIC_TACS New Hampshire by Robert Frost (1923)

I met a lady from the South who said (You won't believe she said it, but she said it): 'None of my family ever worked, or had A thing to sell.' I don't suppose the work Much matters. You may work for all of me. I've seen the time I've had to work myself. The having anything to sell is what Is the disgrace in man or state or nation. I met a traveler from Arkansas Who boasted of his state as beautiful For diamonds and apples. 'Diamonds And apples in commercial quantities? I asked him, on my guard. 'Oh, yes,' he answered, Off his. The time was evening in the Pullman. 'I see the porter's made your bed,' I told him. I met a Californian who would Talk California-a state so blessed, He said, in climate, none had ever died there A natural death, and Vigilance Committees Had had to organize to stock the graveyards And vindicate the state's humanity. 'Just the way Stefansson runs on,' I murmured, 'About the British Arctic. That's what comes Of being in the market with a climate. I met a poet from another state, A zealot full of fluid inspiration, Who in the name of fluid inspiration, But in the best style of bad salesmanship, [199] Angrily tried to make me write a protest (In verse I think) against the Volstead Act. He didn't even offer me a drink Until I asked for one to steady him. This is called having an idea to sell. It never could have happened in New Hampshire, The only person really soiled with trade I ever stumbled on in old New Hampshire Was someone who had just come back ashamed From selling things in California. He'd 'built a noble mansard roof with balls On turrets like Constantinople, deep In woods some ten miles from a railroad station. As if to put forever out of mind The hope of being, as we say, received. I found him standing at the close of day Inside the threshold of his open bam, Like a lone actor on a gloomy stageAnd recognized him through the iron gray In which his face was mufHed to the eyes As an old boyhood friend, and once indeed A drover with me on the road to Brighton. His farm was

2018.12.22 03:21 TripleXLTwoPointO Drop Tribute To The Musers

For Christmas, I would like to share this mix I did of various Ticket drops sprinkled with a few drops of my own. Pretty funny stuff. Also included are some of my favorite Ticket segments over the last several years. Maybe it will help get some of you through this Ticket Holiday desert we are experiencing while Tier 1 is out (No knock on the fill in hosts but it’s just not the same)
Enjoy!

Un-Remixed Ticket Segments **** Disclaimer: To avoid any confusion, the segments below are not mixes that I created. They are audio clips that I found really funny, recorded them, and now I am reposting them in their original form. I thought this was pretty clear in my original post above but one individual has taken issue with me that I wasn’t even more specific. I have removed the one clip that was not recorded by me and all of the clips below were created by The Musers, Hardline, and various Ticket personalities. Furthermore, none of the clips below were taken from the Unticket, despite one persons claims to the contrary. They were all recorded from Usaveit and saved as MP3’s by me after hours of editing them out from recorded broadcasts. If you found the same clip on the Unticket and it sounds similar to what’s posted here, it’s because it was recorded from a previously aired broadcast. The only mixes I personally created were the four clips above. In my original post, I in no way claimed the clips below were made by me, only reposted (which I have left in its original form so P1’s can judge for themselves) however, due to others inability to handle content being reposted without specifically citing the source of each clip, I am forced to spend an extra 30 minutes (valuable minutes that I could have spent listening to more Ticket audio) writing some long, drawn out explanation of the delivery system by which these segments made their way from the on air broadcast, to Reddit.
Out of Context Gordo was created by Pinchers the Korean but of course all P1’s know this already because Gordon told us so when he played it on air. It was a mistake to repost this funny content again without citing the original author of the mix but this is certainly not the same thing as claiming it was created by me.
Please enjoy the rest of what’s posted (which is unaltered from its original form) and if you want to listen to Out of Context Gordo, please go to the Unticket.com, still the best source for previously aired content.****

2018.11.24 12:07 radiofan15 Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak, one of the most influential pop albums of the century, turns 10

https://preview.redd.it/xmus30kna9021.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=eb6091965c75efd6a2fe0b4f67ef759f2b3e134c
Kanye West started as a producer wanting to become a rapper… after touring as the opening act of U2 in their Vertigo Tour he wanted to become a rock star… after the release of his third studio album, Graduation, Kanye didn’t know exactly what to do next: Although another education-themed follow up (known as Good Ass Job) was planned to complement the trilogy of albums that started with The College Dropout and continued with Late Registration, destiny will change those plans for the Chicago rapper.
On November 10 of 2007, Kanye’s mother, Donda West, passed away after a heart attack product of a failed plastic surgery (from which Kanye blamed himself); this was followed by the end of his on-and-off relationship with designer Alexis Phifer which started in 2002 and officially ended in early 2008; and, of course, it was the issue of fame: with Graduation seemingly kick-starting a new era of hip-hop above the ashes of gangsta rap (Graduation outsold 50 Cent’s Curtis by more than one third in their coinciding debut week), Kanye should have been, theoretically speaking, happy of having archived everything he ever wanted, however he was alone at the top, subject of constant public and media scrutiny and surrounded by the kind of unwanted attention most overnight superstars struggle to accept.
Rapping wasn’t enough for Mr. West, and as such, the hip-hop genre was way too small to describe what was going on with him and the melodies he had inside of him needed a new way to be translated to the real world… ironically this would lead to the creation of a minimalistic pop album.
Today is not that hard to visualize it but, in the perspective of the 2007-08 music era, it was considered career suicide and a brave experiment: As mentioned above, Graduation was, mostly, responsible for the decay of the gangsta rap genre and Kanye’s production techniques and combinations of genres were seen as a watershed that helped diversify the genre, in other words Kanye was the closest thing hip-hop had to a savant innovator at the time; also, the kind of pop music that was leaving its mark in the Hot 100 included bubblegum (by the era standards) music from Katy Perry and Natasha Begingfield, Disney icons like Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, mellow balladers like Jason Mraz and Leona Lewis and crossover acts like Coldplay and Finger Eleven, with the biggest representation of urban music coming from pure R&B or pop/R&B acts (Mariah Carey, Jordin Sparks, Chris Brown) or relatively unambitious rap acts (Lil Wayne, T.I. Lil Mama)… in this scenario, and considering how maximalistic Kanye’s previous output was (with its soul samples, anthemic arena-ready choruses and intricate production values), the idea of Kanye not only ditching samples and going minimalistic, but also pop was a hard pill to swallow in the hip-hop world.

https://preview.redd.it/uowcagfpa9021.jpg?width=1600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0f3dc63a2d58441aca50b515bae182659bff873b
808s & Heartbreak was, interestingly, recorded in a three weeks period in September and October of 2008, contrasting with the 2 years it took Graduation to materialize (and unintentionally starting Ye’s tendency of erratic album producing schedules that still continues up to this day), in California and Hawaii with a surprisingly limited palette of collaborators:
As you can see, the number of producers and writers is quite minimal when compared to Kanye’s later work, with him being the sole main producer of the entire project.
As the title indicates, the album makes use of the Roland TR-808, a drum machine introduced in the early 80s that, despite being a commercial failure in spite of its low price, went out to develop a cult classic and became one of the most influential music devices of the decade, being used in pop (Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody, The SOS Band’s Just Be Good To Me), hip-hop (Beastie Boys’s Paul Revere, Afrika Bambaataa’s Planet Rock), R&B (Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing), and electronic (the Yellow Magic Orchestra’s entire BGM album), among others. The 808 continues to be used and/or referenced up to this day among most of the popular music genres.
Kanye use of the instrument was inspired by the 80s icons Phil Collins, Gary Numan and Boy George, who used the drum machine in combination with their songwriting to evoke a set of emotions than normal synthpop and/or electropop couldn’t achieve, a concept introduced by the producer and film composer Jon Brion, a producer in Late Registration.
Although the album still contains some hip-hop elements (more on that later), they are mostly masqueraded by the inclusion of several elements that adds to the mix of genres 808s includes: the album has been described as synthpop, experimental pop, electropop, avant-garde R&B and 80s New Wave, with Kanye himself referring to the album’s genre as a “pop art”, not to be confused with art pop, both the music genre and the artistic movement. To contrast with the bleak atmosphere of the 808, Kanye added several more ‘physical’ elements to the music, always trying to keep a “minimal but functional” sound, like taiko drums, synth-bass, somber piano melodies, choir monks and lengthy string sections.
In spite of its description as a pop album, 808s features some rapping (outside of the occasional guest rapper), although Kanye drowns it with some sing-talking and actual singing, all processed through some heavy Auto-Tune (with some input from the master T-Pain), because the idea of Kanye singing is not the most enticing one. The much-mocked tool, first popularized by Cher in her comeback single Believe, was reintroduced to Kanye while he was recording his verse in Jeezy’s Put On, having previously only used it on background vocals in tracks like Jesus Walks, and he fell in love with the technology, calling it “the funniest thing to use” and comparing the negative reception it gets from people who openly mocked the use of the pink color in clothes when he was a kid for being considered “gay”.
The auto-tune in 808s is used to contrast the mechanical, almost robotic, delivery of Kanye with the austere production and the introspective subject matter of the lyrics, creating an album that is both heavily personal yet detached from the performer, with the mostly sterile production contrasting nicely with the album’s narrative motifs that includes heartbreak, existential crisis, regret, self-examination and fame.
The opening track, Say You Will, demonstrates this better than any other song on the album: lyrics aboutan ex-girlfriend you call on Friday nights just to have sex” and she “says she’ll come over but you wait all night and she still doesn’t come knocking on your door” masked with a two-notes beat and drums in loop above a menacing and ominous background synth line that overruns the lyrics and continues for almost as long as the original track lasted. If this version is too sterile for you, there’s a warmer version with Caroline Shaw vocals on Soundcloud.
In the Kid Cudi-assisted Welcome to Heartbreak, Kanye describes how, despite all the money and fame he has accumulated through his career, or rather because of them, he finds himself trapped and removed from what he perceives as the right way to live one’s life: “My friend showed me pictures of his kids, all I could show him was pictures of my cribs” says the opening line of the depressive synthpop anthem which, as we might be aware, doesn’t apply to Mr. West anymore.
Heartless, whose single cover nicely contrasts with the deflated-heart balloon artwork created by Kaws, is the poppiest track on 808s (no surprise it was the biggest hit of the album) and yet is the closest to a vocal rap performance you get from Ye on this album. The beat, originally intended for Jay-Z, features an uncredited but very prominent sample of the 1984 song Ammonia Avenue by prog rock group The Alan Parsons Project, and lyrically continues with the subject matter of heartache and heartbreak from his doomed relationship with Ms. Phifer… also this song was done dirty on the ongoing Winners Rate.
The Grammy-nominated Amazing (unfairly, the only Grammy nomination to the 808s era) was the first song completed for the album, and features an obscure tribal beat with a menacing piano lurking in the background which fits nicely with the dark verses (“I'm a monster, I'm a killer, I know I'm wrong, yeah; I'm a problem that'll never ever be solved”) but heavily contrast with the optimistic hook (“No matter what, you'll never take that from me, my reign is as far as your eyes can see”) and Jeezy’s guest verse (“I'm amazing, born on a full moon; I was bred to get it in, no spoon”).

The next song, and of the GOAT singles in Kanye’s repertoire, is the iconic Love Lockdown, the public’s introduction to this moody and introspective Kanye as it was debuted in the 2008 VMAs two months before the release of 808s. The upbeat but minimalistic pop track features features a somber, lush, and beautiful instrumental in which the 808 replicates the sound of a heartbeat while tribal drums and heavy instrumental layers complements the verse-chorus-verse structure, all while Kanye sing-talks about a failed relationship and what caused it: “I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to; see I had to go, see I had to move; no more wasting time, you can't wait for life; we're just racing time, where's the finish line?”.
Afterwards, the Mr. Hudson-assisted Paranoid hits: the new wave-influenced synthpop single came out with a noir video starring Rihanna (she was also supposed to appear in a remix of the track, which remains unreleased) with all and a different mix of the track, that still doesn’t detach from the mostly rapped lyrics about a partner who is controlling and neurotic, a not so subtle attack to Ms. Phifer: “All of the time you wanna complain about the nights alone; so now you're here with me, show some gratitude, leave the attitude way back at home”. If you let me be impartial, this is my second favorite song on the album and in my Top 5 of Kanye tracks, this is just pure pop perfection.
Robocop, the next track, has nothing to do with the violent movie from Paul Verhoeven, but rather uses the reference in the title to describe a “spoiler little LA girl” who’s cold and calculated, comparing her to the lead character in the Stephen King novel Misery (played in an Oscar winning performance by Kathy Bates), even though he finds some of those crazy attributes desirable (“Shorty kind of crazy but it turn me on; keep it up enough to keep it going on; I told her there's some things she don't need to know; she never let it go, oh”)… the track features a sample of Patrick Doyle’s Kissing In The Rain, a song from the score of the much-forgotten Alfonso Cuaron movie adaptation of Great Expectations with Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke, and writing contributions from T-Pain and Tony Williams, making it the most loaded song on the album when it comes to credits. A music video starring Amber Rose was filmed but never released.
The next track, Street Lights, is Kanye’s most simple yet most gorgeous song, and a personal favorite of mine. A synthpop/R&B hybrid, Street Lights has Kanye contemplating about the repetitiveness and monotony of his life as it passes in front of him: “Seems like street lights, glowing, happen to be just like moments, passing, in front of me; so I hopped in the cab and I paid my fare, see I know my destination, but I'm just not there in the streets”. Perfection. (PS. there's a music video, but I could only found it without sound)
Just like the opening track, Bad News is a partially instrumental track about a girl who can’t keep her word… only that in this case is about a cheating partner: “Didn't you know, I was waiting on you, waiting on a dream that'll never come true; didn't you know, I was waiting on you, my face turned to stone when I heard the news; when you decide to break the rules, 'cause I just heard some real bad news”. This is the first time, although not the last time (outside of this album), in which Kanye would mention a cheating partner, which seems to happen more often to him than expected.
The penultimate track, See You in My Nightmares, has Lil Wayne top help him to finish the narrative started by Bad News, creating a sinister-sounding song about Ye moving out of a toxic relationship and leaving behind the person that causes him so much pain, relegating her to his nightmares (“And I might see you in my nightmare; ooh, how'd you'd get there? cause we were once a fairy tale but this is farewell”). The rappers’ spooky, angry delivery complements quite nicely with the auto-tune and the menacing and suffocating atmosphere of the song. An accompanying short film, called We Were Once A Fairytale, directed by Spike Jonze was released on iTunes in October 2009... also, here's Jonze smacking Kanye just because it's too funny to not share.

https://preview.redd.it/y3xg41kva9021.jpg?width=1865&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4e16d44ad8c828e012f450ae8427bee13c10c761
At this point of the album, Kanye has addressed her ex-lover, himself and his celebrity life… and Ms. West remains untouched, at least until the last track of the album: Coldest Winter, an ode and farewell to Donda West, which interpolates Tears for Fears’ Memories Fade to create a cold-sounding track in which Kanye wonders wherever will he “ever love again” as the “memories made in the coldest winter” keep tormenting him and leave him waiting for the passing of time to heal him (“If spring can take the snow away, can it melt away all our mistakes”); however, the ominous drums that closes the track and the last lyrics (“I won’t ever love again”) doesn’t paint the brightest future for Mr. West.
A bonus track in all of the versions of the album is the freestyle Pinocchio’s Story, recorded live at the Singapore stop of the Glow in the Dark tour. Included in the album at the request of Beyoncé, the track features Kanye’s stream of conscience about how his life choices and his lifestyle are responsible for his constant unhappiness and his mother’s death, with Kanye comparing himself to the famous character as he just wants to be “a real boy”: “I turn on the TV, and see me, and see nothing; what does it feel like, to live real life, to be real? Not some facade on TV that no one can really feel; do you really have the stamina? For everybody that sees you that say, "Where's my camera? For everybody that sees you, to say sign an autograph… For everybody that sees you cryin, say you oughta laugh”. And the worst part is that Kanye himself realizes that he has no Gepetto to his side, and that he blames himself for that.
During its release cycle, the hip-hop community was skeptical of the album, believing it to be nothing more than an experimental throwaway detour and expecting it to flop, criticizing Kanye’s “sappy” approach to his music, although his collaborators (Jeezy and Lil Wayne) and Common expressed support for West before the album’s release, with Michael Jackson himself being a huge fan of the release. When the release date, November 24th, approached, the critical response came in and it was… positive… sort of. Most of the critical response at the time focused on the use of auto-tune and the general coldness of the project, although even the strongest detractors couldn’t deny how strong was the concept and that some of the track were top tier in the rapper’s discography.
It would take a while before the genius of 808s & Heartbreak wound up being recognized: although it ended in several year-end lists, 808s was largely overlooked by the Grammys but it garnered some nominations in smaller awards ceremonies like the NCAAP, the Teen Choice and the Soul Train Awards. In 2009, Rolling Stone ranked it number 63 on its list of the 100 Best Album of the Decade, then in 2014 they named it one of the 40 most groundbreaking albums of all time in which it was only one of two albums to be released in the 21st century.
Despite the mixed initial reception, the album was a huge hit, debuting at the top spot in the Billboard 200 with over 450k units in its first week, being certified platinum two months later. Two of the singles, Love Lockdown and Heartless, debuted at the top 3 in the Hot 100 in their release week and ended up becoming some of Kanye’s biggest hits, with the former being certified 3x Platinum and the former 6x.

As the Glow in the Dark Tour was about to finish by the time the album was released, no real tour was made for 808s: a promotional joint tour with Lady Gaga, called The Fame Kills, was planned to promote the album but it was cancelled after the first Taylorgate happened. Kanye promoted the album with a performance in VH1 Storytellers and then moved into his next effort: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, although he would return to 808s by performing it in its entirety in 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.
808s’ influence in the current musical landscape can be easily seen within the most successful and/or acclaimed performers currently working today: Drake basically owns his career to the album, Travis Scott took a cue from the way Mr. West works, Frank Ocean and Childish Gambino definitively were inspired by Kanye’s output, Bon Iver and James Blake have expressed how influential was 808s’ sound in their music, the current wave of emo/melodic rappers (Lil Uzi Vert, Juice WRLD) can be traced back to Kanye and his soul-cleaning album… even in the wave of minimalistic pop or indie of today everything can be pointed towards the release of an album very few believed, yet everyone todays seems to appreciate.
