I’m not a cp expert, but I would imagine there would be a big gap between people who enjoy cp (people who support the cp “scene”) and people who would actually go about physically harming someone (a child) for it. Wackin’ it in the comfort of your home is different than becoming a predator.
But I don’t know that blocking access to all cp will magically stop people from wanting it, so I don’t know exactly what to say about how that will play out. At some point, people who enjoy cp need to stop being pushed farther into the dark abyss of the secretive cp world and need to be counseled by professionals. And I don’t mean that to sound judgmental, but they need to realize the real harm that is being done to others because of their inclinations.
I’d bring a truck with a quad in the back. And I’d tie a backpack onto the rear of the quad. And just in case, I’ll stick a snackpack in the small pouch of the backpack.

Seriously? I can’t believe anyone can actually have this point of view. You’d rather someone go without something they need so you can have something you want? Who gives a shit if you paid for it, if you don’t need it you should be a decent enough person to give them the opportunity to buy it first.
“…IF I want to be a selfish idiot, I’m allowed to be.” Yeah, of course you’re allowed to be. You just shouldn’t be…

In case anyone cares
this gets straight to the point.
I think that “brick wall” mastering is necessarily a bad thing. For those that are unaware, the only benefit is that it’s “louder” (which is stupid because you can obviously just turn up your own volume knob), and the downsides are that you lose range and clarity. Losing clarity is obviously not good, but losing range hurts the feel of the music. It’s hard to explain, but it forces every sound to be at the same volume, so sounds can’t stand out or live in the background.
Basically, it sucks, and if you’re interested you can definitely find more about it. There as some good youtube videos that demonstrate the effect. The reason why I prefer vinyl albums sometimes isn’t because of an analog vs digital thing; it’s because there are times that the cd might be brick wall mastered but the vinyl was mastered for people who care about sound quality, so they don’t smash the sound. Again, in this case it’s not about the medium so much as the studio mastering.

What? Why would they do that? And even if they did, I don’t see how that’s supporting racism or sexism or anything. That sounds like some random policy.

Really? That would be something different entirely. They really shouldn’t support comments, one way or the other.
Do you have a link to the awards? I don’t use Reddit, so I haven’t heard of this.

I actually was going to post the same thing as timothymcn. Saying “Reddit is supportive” or “Reddit is misogynistic” doesn’t really make sense. There are so many people of varying demographics that use Reddit, you can’t generalize any more than you can generalize about the people of the world in general. Some people are creepy fuckers and some people are supportive. All of them and everyone in between visits r/gonewild.
The admins (moderators?) make sure the site is an open forum for discussion where people can say what they like and not be censored.

They support free speech. Supporting free speech isn’t the same as supporting racism, sexism, or hatred.

I don’t like how some intellectuals have the habit of explaining themselves with respect to Christianity or religion in general. Not because I want to defend religion from the evil scientists, but because it just isn’t relevant. If I go out of my way to read a textbook about human biology and evolution, I don’t want every other paragraph to talk about how religions around the world have gotten it wrong. I don’t care. I want to learn about biology.
When people take pot-shots at religion when discussing an unrelated topic, it’s just a juvenile circle-jerk. I don’t want religion to be a part of my life, so when I’m surrounded by like-minded people, we just don’t talk about it. It just isn’t relevant. That’s the same reason I try not to talk about celebrities who are only famous for being famous. The only way to keep from hearing about them is to stop talking about them.
So you’re saying that there exists a cure for cancer, but doctors give their patients chemotheraphy instead in order to keep them hooked on medications?
Are you fucking crazy?
(That’s a rhetorical question. The answer is pretty obvious.)
