    Yeah, British cuisine really expanded in the sixties (with the rise of prosperity from real wages fricking doubling over the fifties), but it did mostly involve stealing and Britishising other...

    The good think about Mumble is you can natter in the build up to the game or whatever, and also bitch about any pubbies (I jest. But I would prefer to stick with mumble, though of course if we all...

    Yeah, this was really great. Second match there was a period where I had the blink dagger, and me and Coccyx were goin' round, gankin' noobs where I think we both felt like the most badass people in...

    It seems I am taking the best of both worlds- I loved the film so, so much, and thought the score was key to that. I'm not even a comic book person, I don't quite know why I liked it so much.

    Yeah, pleased with that from Trott. Pietersen seems to have slotted in nicely though, if they can get through the first ten overs of the new ball tonight then I fancy us to bat all day again tomorrow...

    If that were really the case, rates of rape would be nigh-identical across cultures and countries. This is manifestly not so. Clearly there is some level of cultural and societal influence- it's not...

    It's a good question. I don't know, to be honest. I don't know how often that happens.

    I was arguing that you should signpost when you talk about rape in a dismissive or trivialising way in public, so that people who don't want to hear that sort of thing shouldn't have to. There are...

    (Sorry, missed this last night)

    I completely agree, when it's a matter of offence (although I do think it does downplay some of the effects of verbal abuse, but anyway). However, this isn't...

    I'm preeeetty much convinced that Hypernetic is trolling now, Nalano is just being Nalano but Korolum and Jockie are worth talking to.

    Whack [sexual violence trigger warning] on a thread and go mental. I mean, it'd be weird, but if that's what you really want to do I'm not going to stop you.

    I'm saying it shouldn't be dropped without thinking, and not as a surprise, and in the context of domination and shame it's especially powerful. A discussion about rape jokes being taboo is going to...

    The thing is that a rape (as in sexual violence) victim feels shamed and dominated (that whole thing is worth a read, and it's pretty grim). The reason that using the word "Jew" or "Gay" is taboo is...

    Ok, cool. I don't think I said I thought that was bad; apologies if that was the message received. You said "in a gaming context" though which I took to mean including public servers.

    Why should it be on them to preface every single new conversation with "By the way, I get horrible flashbacks if someone starts to talk about rape. Please don't". That's not an easy thing to do. What...

    The problem is that you can't control the context in which someone hears it. Say someone who had, in fact, been raped is the target of your mockery- then you're causing serious emotional harm.
