Eve was set up!

I hear people in my area say stupid things all the time. Normally I just try and blow it off, but occasionally I will hear something that really scares me. For example:

“I don’t think women should hold a political office because they are too moody.”

I will just let that sit for a minute…
Surprisingly this person is a female! Conventionally the girl is a Christian, just like every other human within 50 miles of my current location.
Now I sat down and thought about what would make a girl a totally sexist against her own gender? Lets take a look at some church leaders and information that has been suppressing women for 2000 years.

Xbox Lesbian

Apparently the sexual orientation of a gamer matters when playing Xbox Live. Microsoft recently suspended a player for identifying herself as a lesbian in her profile.

 

Teresa, the banned lesbian said:

“I was harassed by several players, ‘chased’ to different maps/games to get away from their harassment. They followed me into the games and told all the other players to turn me in because they didn’t want to see that crap or their kids to see that crap.”

 

Teresa attempted to contact Microsoft about her harassment and that’s when she got suspended. Their reasoning was that other players found her sexual orientation “offensive.” It’s also Microsoft’s policy to not allow players to make references to their orientation.

 

😯 The kids! Right… because the kids on Xbox Live are innocent and cannot comprehend sexual orientation. Well if that isn’t bullshit then I am a fundamentalist Muslim. I cannot count the number of inappropriate things that have been said to me by middle school boys while playing online games. I don’t even play on Xbox Live. My solution is to simply kill them many times in the game and do other annoying things to make them leave, or if you can, kick them out of the game. If these kids are not old enough to understand sexual orientation then they should not be gaming online with adults.

 

Teresa was not the only one who has been suspended for sexual orientation reasons. You can also be suspended if your actual name is “sexually offensive.”

 

What are your thoughts on this?

I am a Gay Skeptic Turtle.

Since this is my first post and all, I should tell you a little bit about myself and the purpose of the blog. I am a senior in high school. I enjoy seafood, long walks on the beach, running, evolution, video gamming, paintball, skepticism, swimming and other outdoorsy things. I was introduced to skepticism through blogs and podcats. I hope to open someone else’s eyes with my blog. I live in what most would call the Bible belt. It’s not the best place to be for freethinking lesbian. I am selectively out of the closet and only my close friends and parents know I am gay. This is why I have decided to blog anonymously.

 

As for this blog I hope to use it to educate people on science and skepticism. I will be calling shenanigans on alternative medicine, debunking bullshit conspiracies, and promoting good discussion.

 

I humbly welcome you all to my journey on my H.M.S. Beagle of life.
