Thank you, an hoopoe.
I would also like to point out that when Green Reaper chimed in with an opinion that didn't fit the thread's narrative, he was immediately met with a reply that amounted to "you better shut up, or you might end up like the other dissenters!" G.R. wasn't even saying anything that could remotely be interpreted as trolling. The people posting in that topic, the SJW-ey ones at least, are conflating having a different opinion to "being a troll." It seems that this kind of reaction is used deliberately in order to make sure that any opposing voice gets vilified and thus either ignored or punished.https://e621.net/forum/show/195804?page=15
This is the kind of "walking on eggshells" society we are setting ourselves up for when we allow the Language Police to profile people based on words the same way the IRL police profile people based on the level of eumelanin in their epidermis and how the electromagnetic spectrum of light reflects from that epidermis.
Also "heil trump, amirite" assumes that it is only Trump supporters who have an issue with the "safe space" generation... as if Bernie supporters couldn't also have an issue with the SJW culture. It's a convenient "lump-in" that invalidates whatever I am saying... like if I were to approach a christian and make a jab about them being buddies with or idolizers of WBC. They could be regular, normal surface-level christians who don't completely hate gay people and want us all to die, but since I simply just don't like religious folks, I'll just pair them up with a known extremist group to invalidate them and whatever they are saying.
Heil Führer Fred, amirite?
I think this is an interesting point, especially considering that this very forum has a lengthy thread about D.C. Simpson...https://forums.vivisector.org/index.php?topic=105.20
Srsly though... e621 use to
have a sense of humor.https://e621.net/post/show/111097/canine-comic-dc_simpson-dog-female-mammal-rainedog
Nowdays, most of the people cracking jokes in the comment section would be neg'd or banned.
Of course, those comical comments were typed 5 years ago... and now, IT'S 2016 PPL.
I'm honestly surprised any of these are still up, utterly shocked that Dana Simpson didn't go directly to the e621 mods and demand that all of this kind of content of theirs be taken down in order to preserve their "image." All the links from the other thread on Vivisector about this artist all say "404, page not found" (of course, that thread is also from 2009) so they've obviously gone on an art purge. Perhaps they forgot that e6 still has these images hosted...
