I think it's a good idea that he's trying to stop using the word, because, honestly, it's a trigger and can force people into flashbacks of what happened to them. The fact that a lot of you are speaking and talking like it's not a big deal kind of bothers me, but, my opinion probably doesn't matter to you anyway. :V
All I'm saying is, you guys act as if it's not a big deal that you spout the term 'rape' like a frenzied water sprinkler when you have no idea how traumatic something like that can be for someone.
But I am a wet blanket, obviously.


Murder etc, are okay though, yes?

Doesn't take a genius to figure out why most girls don't play video games.

Because only females can get raped right?

I don't use the word often, and I doubt that the majority of people in this topic do either. However, I'd rather people don't feel pressured to speak perfectly inoffensively, and that requires someone to point out "Hey, why is this such a big deal?" when people make a fuss. Is it nicer to not say rape, in case there's someone watching who has been raped before? Of course. Should it be expected of people? I don't think so at all (When they're streaming on their own at least. Tournament organizers have every right to ask them to tone down language during tournaments).

Because the number of people playing LoL who have been murdered before is so large.

Just another reason it will never be a legitimate "sport".


Really? How many times has that one football player been suspended for stomping on other players. Or coaches molesting little kids. Guess football isn't a legitimate sport eother

Words gain new meanings over time. People need to deal with it.

"we killed kennen"
The only reason everyone isnt complaining about that is because murder victims dont complain they were killed
