At this point, I’m surprised nvjc and Harmy haven’t just removed these entirely.

And what would this accomplish, exactly? Despecialized is widely available from many places, and this would just make it so that profiteering jerks would be the only game in town.

Well for one, it would make the community go full vigilante justice on these motherfuckers. Sure they might get twice the sales for a while, but for every sale there would be 2 people every day saying something to the effect of “It really kills me that these were free online for everybody until assholes like you started selling these.” You think the constant spam wouldn’t at least get under these people’s skin even a little? I think a large part of the reason there isn’t big community outrage is that people are in the mindset that those sets on ebay and elsewhere are small scale, and aren’t getting the sales they are.

This makes no sense.

You’re welcome!

It’s disgusting when you just hear the words, but putting the actual picture to it (and especially that picture), it brings it to a whole new level.

Maybe we should send the picture to every person who doesn’t think that sexual harassment and assault is a big deal.

Fantastic idea.

I suggest we leave it there and get back onto politics again.

I lied, I’m going to post in here again, but not on the subject of the last several pages.

So with that said, enjoy…POLITICS!!!

http://www.tmz.com/2017/11/22/texas-congressman-joe-barton-nude-sexting-twitter/

Texas Congressman Joe Barton sent nudes and illicit text messages to a woman, and he’s apologizing for the graphic image first revealed by a Twitter user.

Barton, a Republican, sent the nude photo showing his penis. The Twitter user censored the image, and also revealed a sext that reads, “I want u soo bad. Right now.”

Ready? I’m spoilering this. You can’t actually see anything, in fact it’s covered up quite a bit…but just to be safe, because you can’t say I didn’t warn you.

If I may, since we’re arguing equality, why does the culture tell us men shouldn’t like cartoons originally targeted toward female children?

I knew you were going to bring this up and the fact that you would compare the two is ludicrous. Star Wars is not completely and entirely targeted at children.

Last movie seen

Well of course I think of the original first, I grew up with it and it’s one of the most classic movies of all time. I’m not claiming the remake was a great movie or anything, just that I enjoyed it, and I’d probably watch it again at some point.

Yes, there are female Star Wars fans, but not as many as there are male Star Wars fans.

You should have said that from the beginning.

Regardless, you might ask yourself why.

Why are there more female fans of Sex in the City than there are male fans? Why were there more male fans of American football than there are female fans? Men and women sometimes have different tastes.

The latter is another one that you’re not quite as right as you think you are on. Rabid football fans are split almost evenly between men and women these days.

But is it a problem if more men than women like Star Wars?

Why should it be?

I view it as a problem, because there’s no reason for it, and I tend to favor more equality in these situations. But this is a concept you seem not to understand.

Your viewing it as a problem does not make it so. But maybe there is a reason for it and you are just not aware.

Hahaha.

Anyway, I never said it’s a problem if more men like Star Wars than more women (as an example). The problem is that women are actively discouraged from liking Star Wars. Look how the male fanbase treats women fans and women characters, or look how hard it is to find female-oriented Star Wars clothes or toys (especially pre-TFA). Just two examples.

As soon as Warbler admits he doesn’t know jack shit about women I’ll stop “being an ass.” Saying that no women like Star Wars is disgusting and offensive.

I didn’t say no women like Star Wars. I merely think that more men like it than women.

You said it several times until the post where I said you should have originally said it the way you just said it now.

I did? Well, I never meant that there are no female Star Wars fans.

You know, I’m starting to think this thread was a better idea than y’all said it was.

Because it somehow helped?

Not that I can see.

It could have helped.

By getting more diverse people to join the forum?

The thread could have diagnosed the problems that are getting more diverse people to not join the forum, and therefore, put the structures in place that would help more of them join the forum.

And as I said, discussions about diversity are useful. It raises awareness about the issue, which is important.

Its a Star Wars forum. Its not going to attract women.

That’s a problem.

Its a problem a that this place is a Star Wars forum or that Star Wars just doesn’t attract women?

The latter.

That “problem” goes beyond the scope of just this forum. It not going to change anytime soon. Men and women just like to watch different kinds of movies/tv shows.

Regardless, I apologize for flying off the handle. I guess you must have just worded multiple posts poorly.

JEDIT: Quotes are in wrong order but too much work to fix.

Offensive?

Ignorant, maybe. But offensive?

I’m offended on my wife’s behalf, on my daughters’ behalf, and my dog’s behalf. All other women too, although I’ll admit it’s slightly presumptuous of me to be offended on behalf of all women, or at least all the women who believe they shouldn’t like something based on their gender alone.

Going back to something I’ve said on other topics, it’s not your place or mine to tell women not to be offended by this.

I’ll say it’s not our place to tell women they should be offended. Perhaps women needn’t bother with it at all.

Ok.

Why Star Wars? Why not sci-fi? And who can say if the question is answerable?

I don’t know what you’re driving at here but I was talking about Star Wars because Warbler said Star Wars. Obviously different women like all sorts of stuff that some people think are men’s domain. Star Wars. Sci-Fi. Football. Whatever.

Your statement suggests Warbler knows the answer and can reach it if only he stops to consider it.

Ok.

Warbler, if you’re gonna keep saying demonstrably false things about what women like and don’t like, I’m gonna keep insisting you don’t actually know any women.

They’re pretty easy to meet. I hear that 1 in every 2 people is a woman.

Only if you live on Earth. On Tatooine there aren’t any women.
