I saw this video from one of my favorite youtubers and honestly I couldn't believe it until I click on the actual article. This guys problem with the upcoming Super Mario Maker was on the fact he was shown it was a white womans hand X_X I can't make this up.
I just quote from the article
warning guy does use strong language
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB1E04hJgys


During a meeting with Nintendo on Thursday in New York City, I tried the game and was immediately struck by the strangeness of a disembodied human hand – bearing little similarity in looks to my own – acting as a stand-in for my actual hand. Yes, I'm a white guy, but my fingers are far from long and slender (sadly).

What if I were, say, a 10-year-old black girl? Or a 30-year-old Japanese man? Or literally anything other than an adult white woman (which the hand appears to belong to)?

Given the mainstream appeal of the mustachioed hero and his ongoing battle against Bowser, you'd think Nintendo – a company that's repeatedly shown willingness to be inclusive – would have thought of this.

To another video where a guy is offended about a star wars figure and demands it be taken down. If I don't like something I simply don't buy or even look at it but that's just me.

I don't know everybody seems so p.c. these days everyone I meet in real life seems fake. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to meet people who are blunt and not afraid to speak their mind..

Thoughts- is being p.c. so important and why do people look for the smallest things to complain about?

It's hard for me not to believe it's not a troll.

The people probably doing it for the people that could be offended, like complaining about how there are so many white male leads in media and that there should be more asian leads in there. They are basically trying to complain for me and try to dictate how I should act, even though, as a male asian american, I don't give a crap about what race or gender the lead is. Or they are just trolls

Really? A ridiculously dramatic potty mouthed characterization designed towards the demographic that watches and appreciates ridiculously dramatic potty mouthed characterizations .His hairstyle and beard has more credibility than the outrage that he is so desperately trying to portray. You know if you put this guy in a three piece, cleaned up the language,trimmed his hair ,he could anchor Faux news.

Some people just want attention, and they get it through making other people feel sorry for them, when they are always upset about something. I will said this! not everyone is like that, but for this people that has nothing to enjoy, and don't wanna be happy, try to make other people feel sad for them...because at the end of the day if they aren't happy, no one should be.

He can't because fox news hates the video games he plays.

Oops Sorry, You're right.Dem good ole boys shoot stray cats, (that being any cat that strays in front of the front sight), with M4's in their spare time and don't play video games .I should have listed that as one of the criteria of change.I promise I will seek redemption by consuming a case of Dixie Beer as penance.Not that I'm Catholic..............

So let me get this straight. This is a thread complaining about those who complain about minor things so here's my contribution. Why spend time bothering about this?

Because what may seem minor to you can be major to someone else

Because everyone thinks 5 seconds of fame will make their tiny insignificant life feel 100% better.
Then they wake up in the morning and see people either destroying their argument or trolling the crap out of them.

I'm going to say that the father who complained about the slave Leia toy probably didn't get it from his parents when it originally came out.
Carry Fisher should put on the slave gal outfit for Ep VII!

Some people need to be told that they are being idiotic otherwise they will keep doing it.
