I've only met a single actual tranny in my life. I think internet makes more radical shit stand out more, and is good at farming controversy (making it seem like controversial things are more common than they really are). If trannies live in someone's head rent free it usually means they spend unhealthy amounts of time online. What's funny is that those /v/ types deliberately seek out content that outrages them and then complain they're being outraged.

To me this only saddens me. People have mental problems that they decide to fix by mutilating themselves, and then later depending on copious amounts of medicine to survive. I blame society more than the people, though, they were clearly deranged people but society has only pushed them off the edge. It's like those guys in Japan who marry and have relationships with fictional characters - they only do that because women have turned their back on them, on top of being judgmental, and they need to fill an emotional hole. At this rate humanity will commit mass suicide because we simply just hate eachother that much.

My issue is, are people with mental deficiency still regularly referred to as "retarded"? People use retarded to refer to something greatly stupid, i doubt many are actually connecting it to a person with actual mental disabilities. Just seems like people referring to people with the handicap should refer to them by a more "modern" term then a single word when the original word has been adopted to mean something else. I mean retarded i would assume existed in the english vocabulary before it was adopted for specifying a type of handicap.

Faggot i could understand being more of an issue since it has some past hate associated with it, kinda like with nigger.

Did you know that the word "stupid" is actually an old synonym for "mentally disabled" and that people kept using it as a generic insult, which is why it got replaced with "retarded", and then the same thing happened to that word? Also, there's a word for this, it's called a Euphemism Treadmill.

I don’t know what you’re implying but I simply find it funny that the game has gathered an anti police sentiment when its a game where you play as the police. It’s like saying Police Quest is an anti police game, it’s objectively incorrect and silly to assign things.

Yeah, they’re all cops. Well ‘ex-cops’ in the first two games because the rest of the force is under the thumb of Mr X but they’re basically back on the job by the third game.
