[DRAFT] A Supremacy Surprise!

Postby The Fortem » Fri Oct 30, 2020 5:24 pm

[TITLE]: A Supremacy Surprise!

[Description]: The people of @@COUNTRY@@ have been in an uproar after a video of a supremacist group went virus about them blasting Bigtopians. Multiple protesters have banged on your office door for an explanation in hopes of a change.

[Option 1]: "This is totally disgraceful to the name of @@COUNTRY@@!" says protester @@RANDOMNAME@@. "This has gone on for far too long and it is time @@COUNTRY@@ did something about it. We need to censor all the words that could cause harm to one or oneself." they said before handing you a sign to support the rallies. They wink and then go outside your building to protest the unfair treatment of Bigtopians.

Outcome: The word "dude" has been found to be highly offensive to some people.

[Option 2]: As your starting to shut the office down for the day, the leader of the supremacist group, @@RANDOMNAME@@, bursts into your office for a quick chat. "Hey man, like, this is a free country and I can say whatever I want about those dumb*** ****ing ******. It's my right to say what I want, even if some people think it's "offensive". They then leave but not before writing their autograph on your chair.

Outcome: Slurs are commonly used to decide how good a job applicant is.

[Option 3]: The next day, your advisor schedules a meeting with you in order to help you with the situation. "Well, obviously we can't silence people due to violation of free speech. But, we cannot have people running around using slurs to first person they find. How about this, if we offer an incentive for not using slurs, there will be less slurs used around @@COUNTRY@@! Think about it." she says before releasing her watch has been broken and is late for her next meeting.

Outcome: The poorest have become the richest and the richest have become the poorest.

This looks like an issue about the censorship of NaughtyTM words (and I think we have at least one already), not about white/black/@@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@/whatever supremacist groups.

Well in that case, you might want to check out Issue #22, Issue #262, Issue #13, and Issue #875 (really only option 4 of that one, though) - all of these issues cover similar ground with respect to "don't be racist/but muh freedom of speech"-style issues.

An illegal rally is an illegal rally. Why would making something even more illegal deter criminals from doing it? There are idiots who think that the world does work like, so it might be an interesting perspective, if you wrote it from that angle
The reason why I don't have many black friends is not because I'm racist, but because I'm an extreme introvert have like 3 or 4 friends in total. The reason why I don't watch women's sport is not because I am a mysogist, but because I don't watch any sport as I find sports to be quite boring. If you assume that I'm a bigot because I don't do XYZ, perhaps consider whether or not you're asking the wrong questions
