theRPGsite has sometimes been criticized for its strong free-speech values. Pseudo-Activists have claimed that the mere allowing of sometimes bigoted statements is tantamount to supporting those statements. Of course, some of those very same Pseudo-Activists have then come onto theRPGsite with sockpuppets and posted intentionally inflammatory and bigoted remarks to try to give the forum a bad name, but I guess from their perspective that's allowed if it's for the "cause".
Let me point you toward what may be that (it certainly has some of the hallmarks of a sockpuppet troll), or may just be a case of an asshole deciding to join theRPGsite explicitly to be an asshole (possibly having naively bought into the often-slanderous things that the Outrage Brigade like to claim about me or my forum).
Surely, wouldn't it be better to just not allow this person to talk about how he's bothered by Paizo's inclusion of transgender characters in their adventures?
No. And my response to the dude is why.
Here's the most important bit, for those who don't want to read the whole thing:
So yeah, all of this, all of this concern about how the paladin
theoretically won't be able to kill theoretical demons now because of
the Transgender Agenda, and how her god not immediately smiting her for
selling a weapon to help someone she loves, is all because you think
transgender people are icky.
Just say it.
You'll feel better if you stop trying to hide your true feelings, won't you?
Come out and say it, and stop pussyfooting around if its what you actually believe and you don't think it's wrong. If you're worried about being banned, take note that I'm the OWNER of this forum (and also the first guy to ever put a transgender character on the cover an RPG rulebook, so there's also that!), and I'm promising you that you won't be banned for sharing what you really think about transgender people.
You might be banned if you turn out to be a sockpuppet, or if you turn every other thread you post in into an soapbox for a totally off-topic personal issue, or if you post porn, or if you stalk someone else. But I absolutely PROMISE that you don't have to hide behind arguments about fictional paladins serving fictional gods and not getting fictionally punished here, you won't be banned for just saying that you don't want any of those icky transgender people in your RPGs, and showing us all just what a stupid fucking bigot you really are.
You'll just be ruthlessly mocked, and have your arguments torn to shreds by people smarter than you.
Because I strongly believe no one should ever be banned or censored for saying stupid fucking bigoted things. It causes us all to lose learning opportunities that way.
