Damn white people and their "shuffles deck and draws card" traditional theatre lighting.

    Oof. Legitimate issue caused by the fact that traditional lighting has been used almost exclusively on white skin. Sounds reasonable. But the headline just implies that it is intended to harm those actors' careers, as if that is the only possible motivation.

    How much more can the word discrimination be cheapened? Changing the lighting so that performers faces aren't shadowed (along with everything else on stage,) has been standard operating procedure ever since electric lights have been used in stage.

    Black people have dark features that look darker due to the shadows cast by stage lighting. I assume. Solution, low angle Amber wash at probably 15-25% to lighten shadows without washing out their skintone. Hard for dramatic spotlight moments, easy for stage scene.

    Lighting designer for the performing arts here:

    I feel there is confusion between "traditional" and "poor" design. The problem isn't traditional lighting design, it's bad designers.

    For example the followspots on Wicked had a color especially for elphaba because she was green.

    If a designer is not taking into consideration the color of their skin, they are doing a poor job, period.

    Reminds me of a joke.

    Adam is in the Garden of Eden, naming all the animals when he tells God he's lonely and wants a companion. God tells him, "I can give you the perfect companion, the female; she's compassionate, beautiful, intelligent, lovely, a paragon of humanity." Adam is delighted, "That sounds great, I'd love to have a female companion!" God says, "Alright, I'll need an arm and a leg from you though." Adam sighs and thinks for a minute before saying, "Shit...what can I get for a rib?"

    Honestly, the pic doesn't bug me (aside from it not being funny or witty); but if you're free to make those jokes, don't lose your shit when people make jokes like the one above.

    Okay, like I acknowledge that not being able to change key bindings can be annoying.

    But how dare the player character be an ugly hairy guy? The player character usually has the most animations and graphics in a game. Only having one is pretty normal. Now if there were like 5 or 6 characters and there were no girl I suppose I could go along with this, but they made a single character.

  • punchheribthetit

    Ugly and hairy guys need representation in games, too. Not everyone in the world is a fey beauty of indeterminate gender and sexuality.

    On the other hand, I give them props for playing through full release. Some people don’t have the patience. They’ll mess around for a little while, get bored, and move on to something else. You’re left sitting there thinking “oh man, so close to full release and they bail.” All that buildup for nothing. It’s extremely frustrating.

    Prison creates a situation where whites are the minority, and where Blacks (as well as whites) are unusually violent. Perfect conditions for radicalization. So you can either not send whites to prison or have segregated prisons.

    European Prisons actually play a huge role in radicalizing Muslims who were already quite inclined to be jihadists. I watched documentaries about some of them. A journalist infiltrated one of their groups. He was hanging around a jihadist who had already been to prison. He was sent to prison thanks to his community which denounced him to the police because he was too overt with his radical ideas. Once in prison he met some jihadists who actually taught him that the best way to « fight » is to pretend that you are normal while recruiting other young impressionable kids because if don’t look like the stereotypical jihadist they are more likely to listen. That dude even told the journalist that he pretends to love his father so that he doesn’t throw him in jail again but he is more convinced now that their « path » is the right one, and that his father is a mongrel.

    This is why I love "intersectionality". You have all these niche areas of SocJus saying "If you believe 'A', then you must also believe 'b" (and 'C', and 'D')". If you don't, then you're guilty of wrong think at best, and a "literal Nazi" at worst. The convoluted nature of intersectionality Balkanizes SocJus, and if it doesn't outright destroy the whole movement, it will at least neuter it to the point of irrelevance.

    Prison creates a situation where whites are the minority, and where Blacks (as well as whites) are unusually violent. Perfect conditions for radicalization. So you can either not send whites to prison or have segregated prisons.

    Gender studies is not a redundant subject and the fact that Hungary bans it highly problematic. I haven’t studied it but know a few people who did. I’d say it’s pretty similar to history, ethnology, literature and the likes with a focus of critical theory and methodology. It’s not only about gender misrepresentation but about societal structures and how they came about in general, and if you really think that’s not needed because you think everything in society is fine as it is, I can’t help you.

    Nope ... most of us don't give the least shit about skin color these days.

    Only bigots do, and the most prevalent bigots in the west are those who cleave to identity politics.

    Europeans are actually actively trying to deferentiate more between nationality rather than race. Like... nationality is more important here. At least in my experience. We don't call someone "Asian" or "pee oh see" we call them German, if they're German.

    Europeans are used to people coming from outside their country all the time.

    I'm european. When it comes to skin colour/appearance europe can be pretty diverse. There are some native Irish people that can be quite dark. Some people from the Balkans can be quite dark too. Some people from the Baltic region can have more yellowish skin. People are usually perceived differently depending on how educated or how much the person that is categorising them cares.

    This is what these she's have been setting themselves up for for years. Their consistent escalation of action against people's personal and professional lives has made the process so simple anyone can do it. You could probably do this to nearly anybody and they would just go along with it. It was only a matter of time before someone else came along to use it against the liberals. It's a shame a good guy like Gunn is the one that took the hit, but it was really only inevitable

    Nobody seems to realize/remember this all happened because of Mark Duplass and Ben Shapiro. Duplass had initially tweeted that Ben was a good person to listen to for perspectives on the "right/conservative" side of the aisle. Mark got lambasted for this by a number of Hollywood people, including James Gunn, pointing to evidence of Ben's early tweets back from when Ben was 17. Mark then threw Shapiro under the bus and tweeted out an apology that he had made a mistake in thinking Ben was a good person. It was because of this that Cernovich looked into Gunn's past tweets.

    While it probably won't I'm really hoping Guardians 3 doesn't suffer because of this. So far (haven't seen Infinity War or Ant-man and the Wasp yet) the Guardians movies have been some of my favorite Marvel movies.

    If Gunn had made those jokes the day before he was fired then yeah totally fire him. However he made those comments back in 2012 and had apologized for them. There's only so long you can hold people accountable for shit.

  • TacticusThrowaway

    Also, IIRC, didn't he not apologize for those old jokes until after the controversy broke? I don't think they were worth firing over, and Disney knew he did PG Porn (which had a bestiality joke).
