no one has argued that it's not sexist

no one has argued that it has some kind of value or that they even care about it
I'm not sure what you've been reading if you don't think people have defended it

I do not think it is sexist.

You may as well just be a religious nut with that attitude.

Not sure why people are such authoritarians and feel they have the right to impose their world view on others by force, rather than just, you know, choosing to live their life how they see fit and not worrying about what others choose.
how does this argument not work for the profanity filter, hate speech, personal attacks or anything else that isn't allowed here?

no one is taking away anyone's fundamental freedoms if certain kinds of threads aren't permitted on a certain subforum on a website on the internet

I'm not sure why every single sexuality under the sun is to be celebrated these days except male heterosexuality, which is now somehow this grave sin that is shameful and must be denied or hidden.

It has no value other than being fun and enjoyable. Most of the things in life people choose to fill their time with have no value, other than simply being fun and enjoyable.

The difference is those things could be in any thread at any time and not easily avoided. If Ms Pog is contained to one thread, it's clear which one to avoid. I wouldn't support people posting half naked girls in random threads that had nothing to do with the topic.

If you don't like strip clubs for example, you can simply not visit them. However if you were at the mall and some people began stripping in the food court, you'd have a legit beef.

i have to step away. im getting too angry. it also probably has something to do with how i lost 10k last night and slept only 4 hours.

I don't remember miss pog ever being one thread

why not just run miss pog in oot or the lounge or whatever?

problem solved
02-04-2017 , 06:20 PM
that's called ms oot, I dont get the point

if people arent interested then the thread dies off
02-04-2017 , 06:21 PM
I'm just glad legend42 isn't alive to see this debacle. He loved his Miss Pog something fierce.
02-04-2017 , 06:26 PM
Another stereotypical dilemma I've seen before- no way to win.

Xnerd should have started the thread, she's the one with something legitimate to say!

No, Xnerd is a giant hypocrite for saying anything, she's not the head of the moral police!

She's threatening to leave if we don't give her her way!

Well, if she doesn't like it, she can leave!


Listen, anybody here who doesn't get it by now must not have two brain cells to rub together. We've heard every red herring argument there is now. The wrong person started the thread, a mod is influencing the outcome, I have ulterior motives, I have low morals, I'm trying to exert my own will, people are leaving Pog, this is political correctness gone mad, its not a big deal, it's a moral position, it's a threat, nobodys directly being hurt, etc etc etc.

Everything except an actual good reason to keep a ****ty sexist tradition.

And it didn't matter how I brought this up, because you were always going to find something wrong with it. The issue some of you have with me is that I brought it up at all.

Not worth it.

Maybe I wasn't clear, so I apologize, iraisetoomuch, if you were offended. I didn't mean to say that those who disagree with me are stupid. There is some Pog history that would contextualize where I am coming from in that post, and who it refers to exactly, but most of the people here know it already and wouldn't want me to rehash it.

So.. If I may, I'll retract that bit and just apologize.

It's almost like someone loves drama centering around themselves and now that they have a mod in their pocket they feel particularly emboldened.

Cuz rather than being banned for the 4th time for causing needless headaches, they instead get to watch others being banned and threads and traditions being deleted.

This is like a munchausen by pogsy syndrome case. She loves pog but hurts it for attention and sympathy.

Why have 1 politics thread when you could have 2 politics thread!

Just cancel it, it's not like anyone really cares that much about Miss POG.
02-04-2017 , 06:56 PM
Maybe we change the forum name to Politics and Other Grievances.

Would I be correct in assuming you feel the same way about the politics thread in PoG? Considering it is not a puzzle or game, and there are already two different sub forums on 2p2 dedicated to politics
That would be correct.

In your analogy, POG is the food court.

Go ahead and give the SJWs this victory. It is meaningless anyways. Human gender relations and perceptions are based on nature. You really can't change basic human nature. Being human isn't good or bad. It just is.

As long as there are men and women and pictures, men are going to enjoy looking at pictures of attractive women. It is just the way it is. If it makes some people on this board happy not to have such pictures here, go ahead and remove them to placate them. At the end of the day it doesnt really Change anything.

why isn't pog the city and the thread that can be easily avoided the strip club? there's even a video out there showing you how to ignore threads if you really don't want to see it! people are getting angry over something harmless simply existing that has no impact on them at all which is just really funny to think about.
02-04-2017 , 07:18 PM
I almost forgot :O

Thingy, I still hold dear our ANTM history, even if I don't do it anymore! Thanks for making me laugh earlier with that gif.

The problem isn't that the thread is there. The problem is that you think it is ok for there to be a thread in the first place. This is about reconditioning how humans think and act, so we can completely suppress all humanity and have a gender less, race less, thoughtless, individual less dystopia.

As far as I am aware, I am currently a poster in very good standing. If I am wrong, any mod is free to correct me.

Or to correct you..
02-04-2017 , 07:47 PM
are you asking for me to be banned?
02-04-2017 , 07:48 PM
I haven't reported any posts related to Miss Pog, nor have I asked for anyone to be banned.
