The fact that this is still such a ""debated topic"" is just pathetic, its not even laughable
Both these bags of garbage went after a person completely unprovoked and harassed them ON THEIR POST OF HARASSMENT and then didn't even try to make a sincere apology for it? Why do you still want these people in your community? Why are you going so far to protect them and NOT the people that are literally talking about getting harassed?? Stop being fucking cowards and take the trash out because its stinking up the entire room
The amount of casual racism, sexism, transphobia and etc minorities have to deal with in every aspect in their lives is not a fucking joke. You literally have multiple people speaking about their experiences with literal harassment in this community and you're all just sitting there babbling "uuhhbubhuuuuuu nothing we can do??" "have u thought about not? being harassed?" "doing ANYTHING about it would be too complicated uuuuhhhhuhgg" "uuugghur thicker skin???"
Your inactivity and refusal to do anything only shows that you -actually- don't care about the well being of people that put up with absolutely insane amounts of bullshit because they like the game and community THAT much. And now when their patience is at the absolute limit & you have one of the MOST cut and dry examples of harassment you still sit around and do nothing
Every single person that's faced harassment in this community reading this thread WILL remember who's said what in this thread. Who's stood up for them and who's just been a coward and shrugged their shoulders.
They're going to remember it when you post, when you pug, when you're in a match, when you're in discord, when you're at a LAN & whenever you show your face. They're going to start asking themselves "Are these the people that are really my friends, that I want to be associated with? That I should even bother putting up with?"
Outside this community I have to deal with people calling me a nigger all the time. I have to MANUALLY remove comments on my Youtube videos of people calling me a nigger every month. I had a CEO make a room full of people laugh at me when he singled me out and made a "oh black guy big dick" comment at the MLG CSGO event.
THIS is one of the few things you get when you search for my username on Tumblr
I deal with this shit on a constant basis outside of the community And when the people I thought were my friends. Sat around and laughed their teammate texted them, called his cab driver a nigger, passed the phone around & then stared at me in silence. The last shreds that kept me feeling like I had a place in this community that I was trying to hold tightly onto were shredded up
To anyone that's been putting up with this bullshit, thinking that they just have to tough it out. You don't, and its not worth it. These people won't stand up for you so do it yourself and do whats best for you. A community that's this small and acts like dealing with this is impossible doesn't deserve to exist.
Take out your fucking trash
