I think that people who share this view are way more hung up on sex and take this way more seriously then males that play female characters.

 

Thats  the other arguments I see which isnt really an argument, the ole spin the table aproach. I wont bite on it because its a bogus argument.

Like I said earlier It boils down to G.I. Joe or barbie, and ninja turtles or ponies.  

And your argument was what? that you feel its creepy?

Keep dodging buddy.

See red text to answer your question. Of course it boils down to whats socially acceptable for the male race and female race. Theres a whole lot more to it that A vs. B or C vs D. An entire P.H.D thesis can be written on those topics. and probably already has.

Unless the healthy male is thinking what the little girl would turn into from her current looks.  So the sexual mental image the healthy male would have would be of the little girl at the age of 21.

hm I see. So when you watch a political debate on TV about a touchy topic where the discussion gets heated, you think those discussing whatever topic need therapy? You know nothing about me, yet are perfectly happy to assume Im what, crazy? thats cool.

 

You just proved to me that you need help. You believe this is a political debate on TV about a touchy topic. Before you make accusations about China first read the news connected to the topic first. Then research about it.

Never said you were crazy said you were naive and need therapy since you did a lot of "venting" obviously you have some sort of anger problem or deep long hatred towards China. Did China abuse you when you were little or did he sexually harassed you?

Now, thats creepy...

Just to make things clear...
I speak for myself and no one else, unless i state otherwise mine is just an opinion. A fact is something that can be independently verified, you may challenge such but with proof. You have every right to disagree with me through sound argument, i believe in constructive debate, but baseless aggression will warrant an unkind response.

I dont believe this is a political debate on TV. I was making that comparison to make a point. this discussion on this thread got heated. so what? does that mean people need therapy?

and because i vent i have a anger problem? quite the contrary. people with anger problems are the ones who never vent their anger.

There seems to be a lot of homophobia going on with the people who have a problem with people playing a character of the opposite gender. It's no ones business how people want to play the game, but the person playing the game.

Another disturbing trend in this post is the willingness of some people to give China a pass on it's long history of denying human rights and freedom to it's people. It's real easy for people who have never lived in tyranny, to underestimate the blessings of their own liberty.

Well, I think it's creepy. That's my opinion. You might think it's wrong, and that's fine, but that's my opinion.

I don't think it's homophobia or a problem with sexual orientation, but rather a problem with gender bending. The two can sometimes be related, but in this case, the focus is on gender, not sexual orientation.

Unless I read the OP wrong, this is a private company, not the government, setting up this requirement.

Also, I don't think this qualifies as a human rights violation. Plenty of private companies levy restrictions on their employees private lives, even in the U.S., and no one complains because most people agree that a private company has the right to decide such things.

Given that we're talking about a game restriction, I think it's a little insulting to put this in the same category as, say, the crackdown on protesters in the post-Iranian election period.

I agree with most of this. however, I went straight for the throat on china. people attacked me. and when people attack me for attacking china, im sorry but they are defending china, and I cant stand for that. For the better or worst (am now im sure it was for the worst) the subject is on the table. all we can do now is try to move on.

I am going to assume you both lived in China and therefore are saying that it sucks?

I've lived there for 2 years and I thought it was great. Most the students I met there and people

that I know in US that were from China can't wait to finish college and go back. We may view communism as tyranny

but who cares if the people there don't really care.

Yes, in news your going to see extremist like tibet monks etc that hate their country but you have those type of people

in every country.

You still refuse to acknowlage the point at hand and continue to vere the argument off track. I would try to take your approach too if I were on your side of the argument, because arguing that a boy playing with barbies and ponies is normal is a mountianous task. Not saying its impossible but I am sure stats wouldnt be in favor for that argument. I would love to stay and see what you reply but I have 9 min to get back to work 15 min away.

First off, guys with female avatars has absolutely nothing to do with homosexuality.  If I play a game as a sheep does that mean I am into bestiality?

Second, this thread has nothing whatsoever to do with the actions of the people who call themselves the government of China.  It has to do with some game company that happens to reside in an area of the world that we call "China".

Third, just because some want to keep talking about it, the policies of the Chinese state are no different in principal than any other state that has ever existed, currently does, or ever will.

Except in civilized countries, those peaceful "extremists" dont get shot by the police, and political refugees are not sent back to their country of origin to face consequences for leaving.. and calling people who just want freedom extremists is pretty extreme.

I think that was the problem. You saw "China" and went straight for the throat just because it was China. I don't think that should be done for ANY country.

QFT lol.  And your are right Toquio3, I think the whole rpg concept does escape some people.  Nothing wrong with playing a character of the opposite sex.  Thats the beauty of roleplaying games, you get to play what ever you want. 

I have said it before, even the father of roleplaying games Gary Gygax has played characters of the opposite sex before.  This is a not even an issue with those of us from a pen and paper rpg background.

Except in civilized countries, those peaceful "extremists" dont get shot by the police, and political refugees are not sent back to their country of origin to face consequences for leaving.. and calling people who just want freedom extremists is pretty extreme.

 

Protesters get shot by the police all the time, even in Western democracies. Not all of them are "peaceful", and it doesn't take much for a tense situation to get out of hand. It's terribly unfortunate, but it does happen, and it's hardly a condemnation on the whole system because a handful of people got violent on both sides.

Western Democracies DO send political refugees back to their countries of origin. It happens all the time because they get classified as "economic refugees". This isn't a China problem, it's a humanitarian problem on a global scale.

If your definition of "Freedom" is the complete restructuring of the social and political landscape of the country, I think that's pretty extreme. That doesn't mean it's wrong to want it, or that it's right to punish such people for advocating it, but I think it does qualify as extreme, particularly when you consider that China has always been a conservative society.
