See, if you ever acted like you read and understood what people are writing, things might be a bit different.Not believing in the efficacy of RPG safety tools, being skeptical of behaviors in the community that seem a little performative, there is nothing right wing about that. There is a lot of left wing people who make these arguments too.
Here's what Remalthilis wrote:
For some reason, you chose to ignore the actual point and focus on your incorrect belief that they were saying you're conservative. Which is not what they were saying. Remalthilis didn't say you're conservative or republican or anything like that; they said you were using the same rhetoric they do."There are two groups of people. A.) Those who, by circumstances beyond thier control cannot work and need assistance to survive (the deserving poor) and B.) Lazy Jackholes who don't want to work and would rather survive on charity (the undeserving poor). Since some people who could work but don't want to could get charity, the only way to make sure the undeserving poor don't get benefits is to make sure the deserving don't either. Some people might suffer unjustly, but it's a small price to pay to make sure no one abuses the system."
Yeah, I've heard that one before. When you're interest is in preventing systemic abuse rather than using the system to help, every system looks like a bad idea.
You have literally said that one of the reason why the horror safety tools are bad or unhelpful is because some people are faking or exaggerating mental illness. Even ignoring that the safety tools aren't solely about mental illness, you are throwing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater here and focusing on the "fact" that there are people whom you believe don't really have mental health issues. This is exactly what Remalthilis referenced!
And just to ask again, how are these tools bad or unhelpful? So far, the only answers you have given are:
* You think (some) people are going to somehow exploit them in some way.
* You think (some) people are faking their mental health issues to be popular.
* You think that using them will cause people to "obsess" about their mental health issues.
But you haven't provided even a single real-life example for any of this! The closest you've gotten is talking about celiac disease--and as I said, this is a case of "better safe than sorry" because you don't want to actually make someone ill just because you think they're lying about having the disease to be popular.
So my suggestion is: either come up with some evidence to support your claims, something that just isn't "it stands to reason" or something equally hypothetical, or maybe stop posting to this thread.
