I just can't believe, that all of the rioting, KKK cosplaying, Jmod harassment and RACISM ended up being over a rainbow leprechaun event...

At first I would've agreed that advocacy outside the game would've been more tactful - since all of the rioting and all of the hate - I've changed my mind.

It's exactly because of the reactions we've seen at W Fally that a "pride" themed event was necessary in the first place.

It just pisses me off when people pretend this is an issue of politics. You know deep down inside this nothing to do with the politics or the polling system... "
I play RS to escape the real world issues
" really just screams to me "
Keep me away from the gays, I play RS to escape the real world, where the gays are!.
"

Equally amusing is the classic "
it's a children's game
" argument.

Apparently making a rainbow scarf is more damaging to childhood innocence than exposure to racist homophobe cosplayers shouting "Kill all Nig****" and "Gays should noose themselves"

Who's really thinking of the children here
???

Let's be real: The people rioting and bitching non-stop about this are more child-like today than they were 10 years ago... WHEN THEY WERE ACTUALLY CHILDREN.

I for one welcome the event, and to those who would 'quit' over it - don't let the door hit your ass on the way out!

I spent many years in West Hollywood California worked a few pride events myself, however I do not feel you should push a strictly Gay/ LGBT event on the community especially with children playing the game it sends a sick message that mixing chromosomes is ok.
Nature created math in its nature and 2 Y chromosomes dont mix nor do they create anything new. There are children on this game that have parents who wouldn't appreciate this at all.

Praise Jesus not this atrocity


Children aren't technically allowed to play OSRS in the first place... You have to be at least 13 to play OSRS or else you're child-banned from the game. So there goes that point...

"sends a sick message that mixing chromosomes is okay" -- So why exactly did you work on Pride events if you believe they promote such "sickening" messages? You're literally making a rainbow scarf for the event - that's it.

Maybe it's the sickening messages of intolerance and ignorance that I wouldn't want my child around, but I guess with arguments like yours around that day might be a long way coming...

Well thank you for promoting that pride event in Runescape too. It really convinced me that I will never ever pay again a cent to Jagex.

What I would like in the future is to make things 100% clear from the beginning so that we don't pay any more cash for promoting your 'pride' events in a game that is played by little children (including one of my little brothers).


Good riddance - and please - if you really think the in-game environment was so "perfect" for children and this event just happened to ruin that you've really been living under a rock.

Yikes. I'm no stranger to people stroking their own ego through virtue signalling, but this is pretty over the top.

Who are you even directing all of these hysterics and strawman arguments towards? Have you ever been diagnosed with histrionic personality disorder (HPD), by chance?


Accusing someone you disagree with of having a personality disorder? Who's straw manning who here?

The rant was directed towards the rioters in W Fally (and those elsewhere who agree with their views) - who to me were expressing the real feeling going on here, as opposed to several posters from Reddit and the OSRS Forums hiding behind the "politics" and "think of the children" arguments.....

The arguments I was attacking were sourced from the Forums, Reddit and W330 Fally. If you were there the past few days you'd know what I'm talking about....

Why are you attacking arguments of people who aren't even here arguing with you? You're arguing with someone's ideas who isn't even present to defend them.


It's for the people I know will be reading the thread - and no - the arguments I've mentioned in my OP have already manifested within the thread (they would've happened whether my input was there or not).

You have several people on the thread decrying how the event is inappropriate for children, just as an example. And if you want the case example of where I was calling out how someone thought making a scarf was damaging to childhood innocence over KKK cosplaying, check the thread in my post history ""

Yes Wesley Shut Up
Jagex opened Pandora's Box now live with it
like we have to
im a true christian but i never preach it to no one but they did this, live with it and jagex cant ban no one without being seen to be 2 faced and biased.
Tbh what we seen lately from certain jmods there's biased and favoritism everyday so i suggest get used to it as i feel this is only the start


MastrShafter


I'm all for a gay pride event. But since Jagex is a company that wants to "treat everyone the same" let's be fair and have a straight pride event as well!


You mean like the Rome & Juliet Quest in-game, or the fact that every established relationship in OSRS is heterosexual?

I just have a question about the free membership as its free for a few days, but what about the people who have spent money/bought bonds already for these days? I feel as though we should have these days added on considering we would be getting them anyways. I dont like to spend my money just to have others get it for free


The point of Open Weekend is to bring new/returning players into the game - it was never meant to be a courtesy for already playing members like ourselves.
