The guy does have legitimately s***ty views that have nothing to do with what is in the game but they absolutely should cover the game assuming they cover most legitimate games. Inform your readers about the game and his views and let them decide if they care.
I'll have to look up the dudes twitter or whatever.

Your head will explode.

I've been watching a lot of Jordan Peterson on Youtube. He's a lot of fun to watch. Very smart and well-spoken, and refreshing to listen to in this age of can't-offend-anyone. I don't agree with everything he says, but he's always interesting. He's become famous, based largely on that interview and the way he turns the tables on her. He jokingly said to Joe Rogan that he had "found a way to monetize social justice warriors."

He's the very first video of the thread as well. As you said, I don't agree with everything, but it's always interesting.

That first video makes my head hurt. I admire how he's able to maintain his composure, in a situation like that. I'd have lost my temper or else just walked away.

Jordan Peterson goes after Sam Harris too much for my liking. Plus, I think Jordan Peterson is going to get killed by Bruce Willis in the next Die Hard sooo...

Chipotle Fires Manager Who Refused To Serve Black Men
A manager at a Chipotle restaurant in St. Paul, Minnesota, was fired last week after a video surfaced showed employees refusing to serve five black men unless they could prove they could pay, news reports said. But now, Chipotle may reconsider the termination after social media posts surfaced suggesting that the situation might have been more complex than it originally appeared.​
Masud Ali, one of the customers, posted a video on Twitter showing the men trying to place orders and the restaurant employees refusing to serve them. The video, which received more than 5 million views as of Sunday night, showed an employee, who was smiling and speaking in a friendly tone of voice, saying, “You gotta pay because you never have money when you come in here.”​
The men were vocal in their objections and asked a white customer if he had paid before ordering. The man did not respond.​
Ali told the Star Tribune in Minneapolis that he thought racism was the reason for the refusal to serve him and his friends.​
“It sounded really racist ― the way she said it was racist,” Ali said Friday. “She asked for proof of income as if I’m getting a loan.”​
But wait.....

Chipotle is rethinking its initial decision of firing one of its managers after a video posted Friday on Twitter showed employees refusing to serve five black men and asking them to prove they had the money to pay for their meals before placing their orders.​
“Our actions were based on the facts known to us immediately after the incident,” the company said Monday on Twitter. “We now have additional information which needs to be investigated further. We want to do the right thing, so after further investigation, we’ll re-train and re-hire if the facts warrant it.”​

I didn't watch the whole clip but I think people need to get over gender specific bathrooms all together. Toilets are toilets, people are going in there to relieve themselves not hook up and not check out other people. Who cares if a woman goes into a men's room or a man into a ladies room, just have doors on all of the stalls and dividers between all of the urinals. I'd love to see how one of these "don't let them go to the women's room" men would act if a transsexual woman walked into a men's room while they were using it. Also people who worry about their kids, if your kids are young enough so that someone can molest them in a bathroom you shouldn't let them go into a public restroom alone no matter which gender is in there.
This is a f***ed up view you have.

What i would do if one of those types walked into a bathroom with one of my daughter's in there.
Don't you see the point though? Someone is trying to get you charged up over something that could possibly happen some day. You're basically getting "pre-offended".

The ultra conservatives on the right and the SJWs are actually the same group, they just have different beliefs. However they both want the world to look exactly they want to. Both groups are just really angry because they realize that they can't have what they want. They are all just angry snowflakes who need thicker skin.

There's lots of "unisex" toilets here, there's obviously no urinals though. Honestly wouldn't be able to pee if women kept running behind me anyway. Don't get this kid molesting thing though... why should kids get more molested if unisex toilets?
I do like separate toilets, solely for the problem of women taking an astronomicaly long time doing their thing, much much longer than the average man.

If someone wanted to go into a bathroom to rape someone why would a law that says they can't go into a woman's bathroom stop them? Are there supposed to be armed guards outside bathrooms?

Agreed. And this is most evident at bars and clubs that have unisex bathrooms with one stall. The women's line at a normal establishment is usually 10x longer than the men's because like 30 go in at a time and stay forever. Only makes it worse when they're combined.

There are so many things I could add to this thread, but I don't really like mixing my gaming with that, it just sours me on the whole thing. I want to keep gaming as a pleasant escape from politics and SJW/PC nonsense.

it's itching a bit though?
Not saying I won't occasionally mention it, especially if there are eggregious (or funny) examples related to gaming, but otherwise, I'd like to keep politics out of my gaming experience.

I could care less about any group or there agendas....
If they cross certain lines they will have to answer world-wide for them.

Obviously I disagree lol. If your kid is young enough that you have to worry about them being touched in the bathroom you should accompany them to the restroom, it's your job to protect them. I'd also say that if you are a man and have a little girl who needs help going to the bathroom and women freak out if you take the kid in there that those women need to grow up. It's not like they are all sitting around pissing in a hole in the middle of the room, they are all in stalls with doors that close so unless they are really shy about you seeing them washing their hands (or not doing that) they shouldn't freak out.

As far as the freak out over trans people and the bathrooms they use, they make up about 0.6% of the population, it's a non issue for most people as most will never even see a trans person. It has been blown up by people as an issue when it really shouldn't be.

I am gay not trans LOL I have no issue with my gender and I have NO idea what those people are feeling, I don't understand it and I won't pretend to but I also don't judge them, it's their life and it has no impact on mine at all. The fact that you seem to think being gay and being trans are the same thing shows that you have no understanding of any of this and I don't expect you to because you aren't gay or trans. It's your right to have an opinion but I would think as an adult you'd want to have an educated one, if you want to remain willfully ignorant and make statements that show your lack of knowledge that's up to you but you shouldn't pretend to care about a topic if you don't actually care enough to learn about it.

Again as far as the bathroom thing, it's not up to you to decide what other people do you can only control what you and your kids do. If you feel that your kids are unsafe to go into a bathroom alone then go with them, if other people freak out that's their problem.

So some people are pissed off because that Ed Sheeran guy and Beyoncé performed on stage together and he was wearing jeans while she was wearing some big fancy over the top dress. They are making it sound like that's how we expect women to dress as performers while men can dress however they want, women have been wearing jeans and t-shirts (and much less) on stage for decades but they figured this was the time to make a point. If you ask me Beyoncé looks like a fairy godmother exploded all over her but it's totally up to her as an artist how she wants to dress on stage, I just don't get why people look at something like this as a reason to be upset.
