That’s actually true. I think the petition is bs, but what happened to respecting the minorities? If it was the PT people would be fine with it. In fact when it was the PT people here were more than fine with it.

Recently there was a comment in this very thread where someone said we shouldn’t treat PT fans like people. I found that to be very rude and possibly ban worthy. I used to be a PT fan myself when I was younger and several little kids I know are PT fans.

I’d most certainly ridicule a petition that tried to do the same thing for the PT. The concept is just plain dumb as shit. These people need to grow up.

So while we’re at it, how about we stop treating people who like the ST like people? Or stop treating people that like MARVEL movies like people? Or how about stop treating someone with a certain sexuality like people because they are attracted to X instead of the majority’s Y?

I hope I don’t get banned for this, but come on.

Making “people who don’t like Disney SW movies” out to be a minority on par with people with different sexual orientations is… misguided, to say the least.

That wasn’t what I was referring to. I was referring to someone trashtalking PT fans. And all are groups of people that should be equally respected nonetheless.

PT fans were the direct comparison, but the whole point from the start of your post was to compare to minority of non-ST fans with the minority of PT fans. Either way you really shouldn’t be comparing them to minority groups that actually matter.

Good. So we’re allowed to say “let’s not treat PT fans like people” because that’s not a minority that matter? That was my only critic.

Did I say that? No. I’m just saying it’s incredibly fucking ignorant to pretend that some guy saying (obviously jokingly) on the internet that PT fans “aren’t people” is on the same level of minorities that actually face real discrimination.

Disagree, all kinds of discrimination are bad imo. I’m not saying that you’re saying otherwise though.
