Getting in a long debate about costume design only to find out the person I'm debating doesn't believe there's such a thing as bad design or art.

ID: 35df6  No.768

Much bad design and bad art can be really subjective. Ask him if there's art he, personally, doesn't like. If he says yes, tell him, "Then to you, that's bad art!"

ID: 586d4  No.769

>>768
Subjectivity can exist within an objective structure.

I just can't have a interesting debate with someone that doesn't believe the structure exists. It's like talking morality with someone that doesn't believe in it.

I think there's a difference between bad and personal distaste.
Bad being potentially damaging to the culture or wasteful of resources and time.
Personal distaste is understanding why people like it and its benifits without liking or enjoying it.
No reason anything can be a little bit of both either.

ID: 35df6  No.805

>>802
Indeed. I'm just speaking against the concept that anyone can say, "that is bad art," and that's final– it's genuinely bad art. What is bad as in ugly, disgusting, worthless, valueless, etc. is quite subjective– art, by its very definition, is intended to stir emotions, and whether it makes you smile, laugh, cry, throw up, or scream, it is doing its job as art.

However, if it is something which is intended to demean people as an intentional affront, to be insulting out of anger from the creator, or is damaging (say, an artist whose work involves dumping chemicals into a lake), that is a different and objective kind of bad.

Design, however, is a different animal. As far as design of objects, if it is a device or object which is intended to be useful, it needs to be useful. If it is a building or environment which is intended to be usable and inviting, it needs to be usable and inviting. If one of these must leverage certain aspects or qualities to suit its purpose and it does not do so, it is indeed bad design.

In costume design, if something is uncomfortable, troublesome to wear while doing a task intended to be done while wearing it, or which does not fit its intended purpose, setting and audience, it is bad. If it does not fit its intended environment, surroundings and purpose so much that it sticks out like a sore thumb and/or ruins the theme or the experience, it is bad. Said person is, I believe, wrong.

I'm not perfect artist, but my art isn't thst bad either so it can't be the reason. I'm just confused by the fact that they refuse free art offered to them, yet they willingly throw money at artists who prolly wouldn't even look at them if that person didn't buy commissions from them.

Dragen's this guy who must spend easily a few thousand dollars every year commissioning Fred Perry to draw various images and comics of his stupid roleplaying character who's roughly twelve billion types of werecreature.

Even if Dragen's character weren't so painfully teenager-first-discovering-online-porn-RP, there's the fact that to get all those pictures and comics and whatnot, he follows Fred Perry to every convention he goes to and completely dominates his commission signup sheet.

I think one of the things that finally made me give up on Gold Digger was the point where he wheedled his way into getting a cameo in the actual comic, despite the fact that it made zero sense, he in no way fits into the setting, and served no purpose other than to have him whiteknight for some of the female characters briefly before disappearing again.

In short, Dragen is such an annoying fanboy he has actually managed to ruin the thing he's a fan of, directly instead of by association.

It's gotten to where I can't help but feel annoyance at the sight of that stupid horn and wings.

Can kinda relate to that, someone approached me for a commission, they wanted a war scene with themselves and their other half. They gave me all the refs and such. "Cool, I'll give him a quote and get a sketch set up." Sent him a note, no response, waited a couple days, sent another.

Both notes were read. After about a week and a half I checked out his page to find he commissioned the same damn thing from another artist.

Now, props to the artist cause they did a good job on it, but fuck that guy for not at least saying "Hey, I went to someone else, so you can go ahead and take me off your list" Suffice to say they're on my shit list and I'm not picking anything up from them again.

Nope, one of the players got in a fight with the bridge opperator that 5gp was "outlandish" and "highway robbery" He just kept harrassing the guy and messing with the levers then crossed without paying.

Then he killed the carrier pidgeon that went to report the crime. The other players joined in, it was a mess. I tried to stop them and mediate, but the rest of the party either joined in on his side, or didn't want to get involved.

We had a 10-yr-long campaign that by the end of it most of the time was the DM in the garage to deal with side matters that were arranged without the rest of the party's input. For our group, it was very fun to finally see what was going on in the background all those years with the different little factions that formed in the party.

Another group I play with, though, I won't even play an evil character with. They're just not that kind of group and that's fine. We have fun being heroes and such.

If there is something I've learned from being a white male, it's that these words and 'triggers' are ultimately meaningless. A healthy society is one that grows past it's mistakes, and what SJWs are doing with sexism/racism is exactly what Germany is doing with Nazis. By blocking it out and getting into a big fuss over it being even merely mentioned, they aren't going to let it fade. They are going after words that only have power in emotion, and without that power everyone will start to be equal.

Rape is a sin from an individual, not a gender. We are past the days of women being nothing more than cooks, tailors, baby makers, and trophies. We are past the days of African Americans being nothing more than slaves. Just look forward, your mind is better without the ghosts from days past clouding it.

And to the SJWs, if you are going to bitch about ignorance after this post, how about you check yourself first before you jump down that route, that's what you are going for in the long run in the circles of logic.

And now a can of worms has opened. Sorry for the rant, needed to get that off my chest. Just because a word is meaningless to me doesn't mean it's isn't frustrating when people still get salty over them.

First, SJW is a phenomenom based mostly in the united states. I can't speak for the politics of Sweden (or what is with the Darth Vadar mask). Second, how is homocide related to rape? Negative outcomes aside, one of them is part of the inevitability that is accepted in life (just tragic that it happened when it did and/or how it did), as where rape is a travesty that could of and should of been avoided (either from the perpetrator or the victim is up for debate). Third, stop trying to put words in my mouth, especially for something unrelated to the issue at hand.

>>1401
Racist acts are majorly political in nature, rape is not political but a result of the dogged dehumanizing of women in every corner at the internet, at every single opportunity.

Words influence actions, but even *that* fact is now dangerous to state because the people constantly doing the dehumanizing do not want the causality to be noticed. You fill the internet with memetic screeds about female hypergamy and women's subhuman instincts to toy with, exploit and demonize white men while happily jumping into the arms of macho arab and latino men (I've seen this espoused by an avowed 'humanist' and mother) and sooner or later something happens in meatspace that didn't happen as often before the vilification. There is a formless, cancerous campaign, and it runs 24/7. And pointing it out brings further harassment and hate, because there is to be no self-defense against it in any way. We can't police the hate by law, we must not even consider monitoring it and fighting what is going on in plain sight leads to jeers and hi-larious memes like "He ear-raped my womynhood!" by the nihilist peanut gallery. No recourse is allowed. In the name of Orwell the intended victs have to sit and take it and hope there is police nearby when the hate finds a vector in real life.

Let's pretend it's harmless when people cheer a boy who threw a ball directly at a woman who harshly rebuked his advances on the street. I'm not saying he wanted that act to be symbolic, but the people cheering him consciously or unknowingly made it symbolic. There is to be no freedom to act for the targets of the campaign. They have to take it and slink away like good little victims, or else.

And from other sides, it appears that the dehumanization campaign is in full swing in the opposite direction, with the amount of bile thrown at 'white male cis scum', or whatever the object of hate is. A category is made, said category is reinforced as doing x scummy thing, members of the group hating said category feel justified and righteous. Welcome to a thing people do in groups, I hope you enjoy your stay.

Alright, since you seem to be pretty far gone, I will leave you with something. A real-life example, if you will, of why 'there oughta be a law' is a foolish statement.

In the UK, this month, a woman – a social justice warrior, in fact – was arrested. Under anti-hate-speech legislation. Because she tweeted #killallwhitemen. I dislike this woman's speech but I strongly condemn this law being used to arrest and silence her. This is bad. This is wrong. And this is enabled by this kind of legislation. The thought behind it is always 'yes this will get all those <insert people who disagree with me here>' and it seems like a good idea at the time, but the issue of who gets to actually use it is rarely considered.

The solution to all of this isn't legislation to arrest all the badthinkers. It isn't spewing the same kind of vitriol but with some word-replacements done. It's education. You educate people about these things, you change their minds and leave everyone involved a better person. In short, the solution to speech you don't like is more speech.

ID: b07be  No.1407

>>1406
I don't mind if she gets arrested over that, if it sets a precedent that can be used against dangerous people. The whole internet needs a frigging cooldown.

I don't trust anything but the fear I feel and my need to preserve and prevent further acts of harassment. I want people like thunderf00t and Chuck Johnson chased from proxy account to proxy account by government hounds and litigation. I can't -categorically- see their speech as *my* speech, in the sense that I see your speech as my speech. I don't even see it as speech on their part, just an expression of an inpulse to hurt and dominate. If some idiotic SJWs get caught in the wider net, so be it. I don't trust the hateful people to not escalate even further and I don't trust your common and theoretically laudable brand of liberalism to make things better.

I can't trust the state either, but the thing about law is that it at least forces the people using it to state their definitions of speech and behavior that is to be discouraged clearly, and to explain any seeming hypocrisy or weird exceptions. Yes, any controlling or policing precedent used against the regressives and the "degeneracy" can later be used by them to wield state power against their targets later, but frankly they would do whatever they wanted anyway because they have decades of resentment and fear to rely on to justify any possible acts of censorship, threats and disproportionate retaliation if they do seize power over legislation and regulation. Many self-avowed liberals and libertarians simply aren't. They use Orwell and Voltaire quotes as obfuscation and as a way to justify censorious and silencing acts like harassment, doxxing, threats, demonizing and hate. They target people found to donate to That Hated Woman via the Patreon hack, in order to scare them into not giving The Hated Woman money anymore because The Hated Woman uses her free speech wrong.

All for the sake of freedom, free thought and free speech, of course. My lying eyes, right?

Since you obviously are too far from reason, I'm just going to close on this:

Consider planning for the zombie apocalypse as a hobby. Fear makes for great creative logistical activity, and is handy for if your life gets fucked up (beyond recognition anyways) before such an event can occur.

And if it actually occurs? The world burns in your preferred image. Because really that's what it'll take if you want a world that doesn't suffer from harassment (from anyone living anyways).

>You have to eliminate society to prevent harassment and hate campaigns completely, which is what you want to do because you don't want to do nothing

Do you have previous experience with winning people over using blatantly exagerrated dualist choices that lack connection to the realities of the situation?

Nah, I'm saying human nature isn't the kind of thing you can completely control, not with laws, religions, even honor itself doesn't curb it. It's the very definition of a SJW to harass, to those who's earned the ire of them mind, but that never translate to those who actually deserved it.

And you know what? That wouldn't be so bad. But your ideals are only going to set you up to disappointment.

It'll be up to you to know when you've had enough. And it's that freedom that I desire for everyone. The very kind you oppose.

From what I can see, anonymous free speech without consequences is like a bunch of smokers in a dry forest. And when the fire starts they jump into their cars and drive away wondering "wha habbun?" or cackling like kids who just broke their first window, while the animals in the forest are roasted alive. Like with all these churches with mainly black parishes that are burning down for some reason. That is what I'm trying to *reduce*. In the same sense that you can't stop people trying to earn money under the table, litter freely or cheat in school, but it's probably a good thing we've decided to discourage that behavior.

I actually think the opprobrium towards anti-anti-rape voices, homophobes or active misogynists is a middle ground between the abject passivity you seem to espouse and the prospect of forcing online platforms to reduce anonymity, moderate escalating eliminationist rhetoric or bigotry or making it easier to litigate etc. It's a random, inaccurate measure but it does demoralize and humiliate the boys dreaming of living in their own John Birch paradise on their own turf without involving the state. If you want the internet to be a wild west that occasionally spills into the real world (and subsequently spills actual blood on the actual ground) then maybe you won't be so shocked and appalled when internet vigilantes and web-utilizing frontier justice becomes a thing. Or does only one kind of people get to get their hits in during the anarchy? Hey, if it bothers you just "Walk Away From The Screen", as that super-funny tweet that all the chan-kids love says.

> is that it at least forces the people using it to state their definitions of speech and behavior that is to be discouraged clearly, and to explain any seeming hypocrisy or weird exceptions

If you truly believe this then you have not been paying attention lately to what the state does with zero justification.

Also your lack of self-awareness is astounding.

This isn't a gripe but rather a thought. I never got how people can ship characters from the slasher genre, take Until Dawn for example. Plenty of gruesome disgusting ways to go, and yet people will ship those teenagers despite likely seeing them die in various ways.

It's one of those unsee things, ya know?

In the "Should've seen that coming" catagory.

>Game Dev announces an adult adventure game. Neat!

>Says it's concept is Mixing explicit content with serious subject matter
>Every following update is pretty much focused on the explicit content and nothing about the serious subject matter/stories.
>A conceptual prototype demo is released, teasing a story and featuring two different sex scenes.
>Flash forward to now where the dev is working on a different game and wrote a post mortem for the demo stating that due to the explicit content, they were unable to engage the audience with the concept of mixing explicit content with serious subject matter. An' that too many people were expecting something pornographic.
>The dev will eventually update the demo with less explicit content, even though in the same paragraph they wrote they want to be as raw and uncut as possible.

In a bit of irony, a seperate dev is having no trouble engaging his audience with his horror visual novel. (A game of serious subject matter with explicit content.)

Soon to move into a rental apartment (moving in a pain), have to forgo christmas this year thanks to moving, and just found out my sis isn't visiting from england this year and she's doing a courtroom marriage over there instead of something more involved.

My what a shitty end of the year this will be. Don't think I've ever had such an end of the year without the iconic holiday actually looming over the month in it's own personal way.

Also, sorry I didn't do another TGFB community voted picture event, again moving is a pain in the ass.

There's only so many ways him, his drawing style, his subject matter, his writing, his characters and his personal opinions can be knocked before it's boring. If we really want stuff to make fun of, there's more varied stuff going on in the fandom– "Artists Beware" is a good spot, for example, to see who's scamming and how.

You know, it's sad that Anton Yelchin died, it really is.

But it's kind of annoying how everyone on the STO forums and general chat in game are all competing to see who can be the saddest about it.

Went to check out the thread about them adding Abramsverse content to the game (or "The Kelvin Timeline" as it's now apparently officially named) and literally every other post was "That's pretty neat but BOOHOO ANTOOOOOOON".
