@ApollosAmour said in The censorship on being short should be removed. Round 2:
@KYBELA I've done my best to hear people out, but the argument changes so often that it gets exhausting. For me and others like me, it's always been as simple as: we understand why the cuts were made (likely due to the age of the characters and intent) and we're fine with them because they serve a purpose in that regard.
i mean.. this thread is pretty clearly labeled to be about removing censorship, for height restrictions. specifically for 'short' characters.
half of my long winded statements are attempts to bring people BACK to the topic.
or otherwise offer them a valid response so that we can get back to it.
i do not see how being short, has jack-shiz to do with 'likely due to the age of the characters & intent'
there are characters in PSO universe, specifically pso2, which are shorter than the restricted height limit of 150-155.
none of which have i found to be referred to as a child in game..
altho there is time travel, so i guess its possible to be in there at some point..
but i dont even understand from a lore, OR ethical standpoint how that could seriously bring up an issue.
ARKs ops are soldiers. brainwashed killers even.
if your issue is HONESTLY about age, when why are you not protesting sending children to fight in wars before they are even allowed the right to drink alcohol?
is it possible, that censoring the issue itself. JUST PERPETUATES these type of crimes all over the REAL world?
since nobody has the 'spherical swing cells' to REALLY BE HONEST about what's bothering them? (which was a paraphrase of, your stated opinion..)
i just cannot fathom why individuals, perhaps similar to yourself, would go through such effort to condemn materials of fiction. and encourage suppression of the subject entirely. all while real world crimes continue, and do so because nobody is speaking out against it.
i had asked others, 'where are these "arks children" within the game, or the lore?'
& wtf are they doing there when the rest of the cannon has clearly suggested many times over, that children do not become ARKS until they are old enough to server in the war..
why does every 'pro-censor' person ignore it, when ive asked this question 10times or more?
why are some not upset with lore inconsistency? (if thats the case)
why is a digital war, fought by pixels, and perhaps mistranslated by a rushed JP-to-EN translation, somehow more offensive than REAL wars where REAL innocent women and children die?
why are you not upset that societies legalize brainwashing, and preying on their youth for taxes? or using them for cannon fodder as i mentioned like 4 times..
there are so many issues. boysranch/girlsranch programs that abuse children, large charities which have paid top dollar lawyers to keep their names out of the press for their abuses? while they happily rake in your money & murder your younger generations?
i just dont get, what are people ACTUALLY offended by? because they were given the impression the game has CP?????? cause it makes no sense to me. its OBVIOUS that is NOT in this game, & if you REALLY THOUGHT IT WAS... why the flubbbbliahblahioh are you even playing the game in the first place, if you have such an impression in your minds, without any evidence to support such an outlandish assertion??
im not even frustrated at you. i just like to get a straight answer, of WHY YOU ALL WANT CENSORSHIP SO BADLY, even after KNOWING... that it is only perpetuating real world crimes to cover it up or dismiss the discussion.
can you name any actual real world historical situation, where censorship did humanity good? rather than perpetuate harm?
where it was NOT used for tyranny?
i'd love to see what makes 'pro censorship' argument side, so confident without them having offered a single shred of actual evidence or anything besides their opinions and speculations. (nothing wrong with opinions or speculations. but asserting them as facts can be harmful)
i hope you all have a great one tho.
ill try to check back tomorrow, incase a reply to me..
otherwise i'll prob see y'all in like a month lol
