Uh.. doesn't make them ignorant. They just put a piece of steak in your avatar because you're a vegetarian. It's a minor prank, not a damn hate crime. Shame if you take offense from it.

Well, that person had the right to do it! He used an item that he bought, so there's nothing wrong with this...

Heh, at first I didn't see the relevance of the steak Sticking Out Tongue . Quality!

If I was a vegetarian and someone set my avatar to a piece of meat, I imagine I'd be pretty damn offended. And no it's not just to spite you Grin.

I'd actually thought the men in power would have had the sense to remove those silly items by now.

There's nothing wrong with being sensative. But everybody probably gets confronted (sp?) with meat a lot of times per day, if your family isn't vegetarian, they'll probably eat meat during the meals. Does this not offend you?

Then I think that's a damn shame. I find it silly that an image of steak could cause you to feel offended, insulted, or mistreated simply because you are a vegetarian.

okay... that's different... I don't mind if others eat meat... but... let's give an example... I don't mind if my family or friends eat meat in front of me... but if they were to take my bedroom, and put meat up and down all the walls in MY bedroom... I'd be pretty damn offended

EDIT: another example... this would be the same as going to a super supporter of catholicism religious person andchanging their avatar to "666" or something... or something in that manner

As a guy who believes in God, I can't say I'd be offended. You have to take everything into consideration. It's not like people hate you, and I do think you realize it was a joke, so why you are taking it as an insult, I don't know. If someone changed my avatar to "666", and knowing the nature of the Town, I'm immediately going to take it as "lolo devil am i rite" as opposed to "You stupid Christian. I'll show you by putting something adverse to your beliefs in your avatar."

And as for your family example, this would be more likened to your mom/dad/brother/whatever setting meat on your plate and then you come down for dinner and see it and they laugh. Honestly, if you would become angry/offended, call them ignorant and demand that the person who did it come forward - then I believe you are perhaps being too sensitive. Is it wrong? No. But I see it as a bit silly.

I did it and have absolutely no problem whatsoever with admitting to it. It's not a FACIST ASSAULT on your beliefs, it is a simple, harmless prank. It's the kind of thing the item is there for in the first place. If some stranger on the internet chaging your avatar to a piece of raw meat causes you serious psychological scars, maybe you need to get some mental help. Or at least lighten up, hm?

And besides, if you really had as much of a problem with it as you say, you would've changed it back by now.

In short, I did it as a joke. If you have a problem with that, tough shit. Change it back and get over it.

No, see that's that problem. There's not a right or wrong. Pat wasn't right to do what he did, but he wasn't wrong. You weren't wrong in posting about it - you have the right to do it - but it doesn't make you right and Pat wrong.

And if your beliefs and "emotions" are that different that "noone else can understand", then don't expect people to agree or side with you. I'm not saying you did, just don't.

That was then. And I didn't find that offensive. I felt like they were silly and childish, but not that they were "wrong."

You'll also have to keep in mind that the iMockery situation was different in that I wasn't dealing with people who I had been around and bonded with - myself and those people were not nice to eachother.

It's one thing for a friend of mine to walk up to me and say "Fuck your mom" and a total stranger doing the same. The friend is going to get me to roll my eyes and perhaps push him out of the way. The stranger stands a fair chance of being physically injured.

I'd just like to point out that you flipped your lid BEFORE you knew who did it. So for all you know, it might've been one of the few townies (if there are any. If not, I fail to understand why you would continue to come) that you WOULD consider a friend. A logical fallacy in action! O:

I think its rude to do what Pat did to Grem, but I think that it was also just a joke and it shouldn't be taken with such seriousness. Grem, we still love you, you and your whole vegeterainismness. I for one would probably be somewhat offended if my avatar was changed to a piece of steak, cause I hate steak. I can't stand eating it.

I have to say that you are all being rather childish.

It was intended as a harmless joke, but Gremio obviously did not see it that way. Now it would seem that Patryn didn't know that Gremio would be so offended, so he was not in the wrong. The right thing to do in this situation would be to simply apologise for offending him and move on. However, mocking him for taking it too seriously and telling him to lighten up about it is not a good idea. He's obviously very sensitive about the subject and just because other people here think they wouldn't react this way doesn't mean that he can't. He has strong beliefs and that is in no way a character flaw.

So why don't we all calm down and stop the flaming hmm?

I ororo'd at this topic.

Maybe it's just my own bias speaking, as my skin is many times thicker than most of yours, but people need to lighten up and start having more fun with things. Having strong beliefs is a good thing, no doubt about that, but there are times when one must simply let it roll off them and ignore it. After all, it was just an avatar change - not like Pat sent you a 5-page PM bashing you, right?
