NPC meme

Gotta love 4chan, the true voice of equality - no-one is special enough to not get ripped into


Yeah, I've been loving the meltdowns on social media about this. It's a perfect meme.

The best part is, it only offends you if you act like an NPC.

So good!

The thing about gender that most people don't understand, because most people are pretty ignorant, is that gender in nature is rather fluid and non-binary. Most species do not have sexual reproduction. It's a relative newcomer, if you'll pardon the expression.
That's true. For slugs, sea shells, some reptilians. But we are mammals. We are binary. These made up in-between-genders are mostly just bumbledom from attention whores. The exception of course being "trans-gender" while being on the (long, hard and painful) journey from one gender to the other. But even that is just a social construct.


If interchange of some kind ends up with a progeny of an other copy with different genetic code than one of it's siblings, it's sex. sex, sex, sex, sex, sex! Otherwise, I'd like to know _your_ definition of sex.
The same. What else? I am currently completely puzzled where you interpreted a "definition of sex" into what you quoted.


So the species you two are talking about the other 75% of the biomass, not included in the mammal group? You are so intelligent! Thumbs up.
While being a wise arse - How big does it have to be to make a progeny? Do I have to be black? (It's a joke!)
Ah, alright. You didn't understand what this was about.

I was merely replying that Bones argument about "fluid genders" does not apply to us, as we are mammals. Or what was the last time you saw a mammal change its gender all by itself? Although "gender" isn't strictly binary in all of nature, it is in the world of mammals. (And most insects and plants, btw)

And that has nothing to do with sex or the color of your skin. (If this was a joke, I didn't get it. Obviously. ;-) )

It's okay, because you were wrong anyway. If you read my whole post you would understand that it does indeed apply to us as mammals. While our actual sexuality may be prima facie binary, our behavior certainly is not, and that is naturally so. Furthermore the biological physical reality is more complcomplex than binary beneath the skin; Power Rangers of behavior are determined by ranges of hormone levels and other genetic factors. If you don't believe this, you hate facts and Science, and you're a bad person.

And that's what I said. Thanks.

Edith wanted to add: I won't repeat the rest to not bore the pants off everybody. You were right with that of course.

Some questions. Is the pink hat A Thing? Follow-up, what is the Thing? And surely this is making fun of the NPC-types?

1) The Pink hat is a thing
2) its a feminist "vagina" thing "pink pussyhat" https://www.pussyhatproject.com/
3) oh this isn't making fun of NPC-types, this is an NPC-type. This individual is an AntiFA member but is soo detached it is painful to watch... watch a few more of BostonAntiFA to see

I thought so.
Ah, that. I hadn't seen one. (But may have seen one recently).
Lalalalala, can't here you.

But seriously, I feel sorry for that person. The performance was done in a manner I would expect in mocking that group of people. That individual seriously needs help. Also, seemed like that was a closet.

Maybe this will be the mental health crisis that demonstrates an epidemic level of need

Actually BostonAntiFA is a parody. Poe's Law :)

But yes, there are individuals who are that nuts and that reaction to the NPC meme is mirrored by real NPCs...

I've not heard about any reaction from leftist about this meme. The only people talking about this are the fascist right, laughing at their own joke.

I can't speak for notageek, but in my case, apparently a very sturdy one. I saw one reference to the NPC meme that was neutral in its reporting, and other than that, nothing. I've seen nobody on any side complaining about it, and I thought it had already died out due to disinterest.

Other than here, I hadn't seen anything about it. But that's not a community I seek (either side). Sometimes I wish I were a little more aware, other times much less.

I'm fairly in touch with the Doctor Who and Star Wars fandoms. The NPC outrage is hit hard there and shows no sign of slowing down.

Twitter banned several thousand NPC meme accounts and I think facebook is banning people as well. They want to suppress it, which only proves how effective it is.

For example Kotaku is in full attack mode. They don't get more left than Kotaku.
