    B-b-but the boycott!

    I remind been in work (very geeky environment) with people patting themselves on the back about the boycott. There’s an odd silence that comes when a very vocal anti Rowling person bangs the drum but its the usual very loud minority.

      The odd silence is a vocal minority desperately trying to not be ignored by people who would want them dead. And Rowling is the one exception to put your money where your mouth is not mattering. She quite literally said people buying her shit proves she’s right.

      So thanks for making her point. We get you don’t care about trans people, makes it easy for us to see who to not turn to.

      Anyway how many awards did this game win? Congrats on selling your dignity on another open world game that you won’t be playing anytime soon now that the hype is down.

        The odd silence is the other people in the office who just remain silent or they’ll get chewed out by the very vocal minority. I feel for the trans community, you lot are a minority within a minority but have a terrible image because of the screaming idiots in your camp garner all the attention.

        However it’s objectively funny that the boycott catastrophically failed despite all the initial clout and hype for the boycott. Same thing when right wingers call for boycotts.

          This year I had to leave my state of Oklahoma because my skinhead neighbors with iron cross and eagle tattoos shot at me. I’m currently 1400 miles away in Pennsylvania restarting my life in 2024.

          I say this from the bottom of my heart: comparing us to right wingers angry about keurigs or Nikes or bud light is proof that you wouldn’t help us no matter what and finally helps me understand why nobody did anything during other genocides in recent human history. Thank you for explaining enlightened centrism to me so succinctly.

          Hope you enjoy your laughs off our suffering. Sorry we’re so cringe. Hope they come for you some day too.

      “this person is still successful despite being shitty against you and I find it hilarious you are mad that people like her want you dead”

        I think it’s funny when boycotts fail in general, I don’t care what genitals you have or don’t, what your pronouns are. It’s objectively hilarious when boycotts fail, especially when the groups are so freaking confident it will work.

      It’s a mediocre video game. I’m supremely disappointed in those who call themselves allies but can’t do the equivalent of picking a different coffee brand. I know you find us annoying. Just imagine how annoying I find contrarions and pissants like yourself when my rights and safety are stripped away using the clout and profits of shit like this game.

      Oh, wait. My bad. I asked you to empathize. I know you’re incapable, I shouldn’t have bothered.
