Wait, what's disgusting about it? He returned the artifact back to the villagers.

I'm not sure why skin colour or race or anything has to come into it. Lara isn't collecting artefacts because she's white. She's collecting them because it's what she loves to do. She's not collecting artefacts that come from different cultures because they're from different cultures. She's doing it because she loves doing it.

Bringing race into everything creates segregation. It doesn't solve it at all.

Pfft

You are a trip you know that? You guys just keep making examples of what I'm saying. It's like I'm a psychic or something.

Wasn't long until a thread gets hijacked by a Trumpster.


Lara Croft & TR will survive "PC culture"

And it wasn't long for Lance to depend upon the masses with their sword and sheild in hand to defend the snowflakes from reality.

The fact that Lara is a fictional character should really be the bottom line of the matter. She's not ****ing real, she's not encouraging white people, or anyone else really, to go out grave robbing, no more than any other violent video game character is encouraging violence.

It's one thing to be offended at real life circumstances, but if we're seriously going to start applying this to fiction and going into a hyper-critical analysis of every character and storyline, I really don't know what to say at this point. It's not even like TR discriminates. There's been ridiculously embellished pseudo-historical sites across Europe she's also ventured into, but I guess that goes unnoticed because it doesn't fit the narrative.

If Lara is offensive, don't ****ing play. Goodbye.

Lara Croft, Reboot Lara, won over the audience that are extremely Left-Leaning/Engage in promoting PC culture. So I don’t even know the purpose of this thread unless Reboot Lara was never a thing and Core Lara was still alive today. The Reboot is a success as well as the movie. TR garnered new fans and brought back the ones that thought she was nothing but eye candy for boys (people who actually thought this need to get educated thoug)

So, yeah, I think that's totally possible, if you've got an ounce of integrity or empathy.

these two posts basically.

i can't at people acting offended over others requesting to have cultures properly represented in media.
and, yes, you will find people on twitter and tumblr that are over the top and take things and run with them, but if you're intelligent enough to recognize that they don't speak for anyone who's actually genuinely trying to make progress then yeah you'll be fine.

There's honestly snowflakes on both sides. I hate Trump and agree he's a snowflake, it doesn't negate that there are also snowflakes on the Left.

That word has just become a platitude in itself now anyway so I hate using it.
