: "Are you ok?" Lux asked as a flicker of emotion crossed her brother's eyes. He shook his head slowly and gazed down at his sister. "I'll always love you," he whispered, lovingly kissing her forehead. She smiled and responded, "I love you too, big bro." He knew it wasn't the same kind of love, and as happy as he should be hearing those three words come out of her mouth, he felt shattered. Garen staggered back slightly clearing his throat and Lux shot him a quizzical look. He smiled weakly, trying his best to compose himself. At that moment, Ezreal walked in from the ballroom and laughed, "Gross, what a couple of love birds." Lux gasped and yelled "Ew, why would you say that Ezreal! We're siblings!" as she pushed him out of the room. Lux turned to see Garen kneeling on the floor, tearing up. "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry..." Garen sobbed. Lux knelt beside him, and clutched his hand, asking "Why are you sorry, what's the matter big brother?" Garen recoiled and shook his head, saying nothing. When Garen averted his eyes shamefully, she began to understand. She remembered all his vague stares, those looks filled with a powerful emotion she couldn't name. All his hugs that lasted a half second longer than they should have. Unbelieving, he took his hand and felt his pulse slowly rise as she drew nearer. She could see the tell-tale bulge forming through Garen's dress pants, even as tears streamed down his face. Lux knew finally the hideous secret her brother had been keeping all these years, and strangely, she didn't hate him. Garen had tried to protect her for so long while he suffered in silence. But Garen didn't know that Lux hadn't needed protecting. Especially not from him. "I love you, brother," Lux whispered to Garen, resting her other hand on his thigh. Garen stopped, unthinking, unbelieving. He turned to look up at her through his misty eyes. She was looking a down at him with a smile that contained all the pent up feelings they'd hid from eachother for their entire lives. Lux kissed the tears from Garen's eyes, and he finally smiled with the hope that maybe he wasn't all alone in this cruel world. Garen took both of Lux's hands and they gazed at each other with a passion greater than a thousand fires and a million sparks.

So its really not for everyone to read. All of identity politics is a debate of who is the most victimized. The problem is that it is a large amount of generalizations made based off of a small amount of incidents. I've played with 16 year old kids who thought it was funny to spam profanities or racial slurs into chat, and to be perfectly honest that is how kids act sometimes. The difference between being a child and being an adult is your ability to deal with it. I'm a Christian and I get a lot of hate for it. Does it bother me? Yes and no. It does not affect the way I view myself, but misunderstandings do bother me. If I can correct something, and better help someone understand why I act the way I do, that is a good thing. If they are simply hateful, that's up to them, man. When people talk about hate speech and the need to ban words and topics from the public eye, what they're really saying is that they don't believe those groups have the self-confidence, the strength or the intelligence to defend themselves. It may not be the intent, but it is the reality. One of my most memorable conversations I've seen/been a part of on Facebook was a transgender telling off everyone in the comments trying to defend them, and their reasoning was basically the same as I've stated. Let them deal with hate the same as everyone else does; they don't need their hands held because they're as human as you or I.
I appreciate you being willing to discuss this and explain your view. I can see the point that your trying to make. I disagree about your perception of victimization, however. I think ignoring something isn't actually teaching someone that what they are doing is wrong or that it's hurtful. Now does the system or anything I'm suggesting actually doing that? Unfortunately no and that is a fair criticism. I'm also a Christian brother and I totally get the point you're making and I appreciate it and it's something to consider on my side. I'm also an African American looking for avenue to create change. Will this do it? Probably not but you don't know if you don't try right? Again thank you for not just leaving a comment, but explaining your point I appreciate being able to see where you're coming from.

I'm merely trying to understand that if it is something you can report, something that can lead to bans, why do I need a filter to block it? Why isn't it blocked by the system as a whole? If its something you can report and can lead to people being banned, why even allow it to be said at all? I doubt Riot would implement a system that would block certain words from ever being said. I also don't believe such a system fixes anything. It wouldn't change what the person thought was appropriate to say, it would simply prevent them from saying it and possibly drive them to troll when they couldn't say what they wanted (which is what permanent chat bans did back in the day when they tried that).
Ah okay. I wasn't aware of that. That makes sense.
: I might be wrong, but I do believe the chat filter should censor most, if not all, hate speech. It doesn't remove you from the situation of being required to play with those people, but it does censor what they might say so you don't have to see it, at the very least.
Yes and I'm aware of this and do use it. I'm merely trying to understand that if it is something you can report, something that can lead to bans, why do I need a filter to block it? Why isn't it blocked by the system as a whole? If its something you can report and can lead to people being banned, why even allow it to be said at all?
: Welcome to the modern world, where SJW's attempt to wage war on gaming immaturity. Welcome to victimhood, JRevLancer. --- PS. No one is gonna read that full wall of text unless they already agree with you, therefore you aren't gonna teach/convince anyone like that. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
This is not victimhood. I'm not trying to play the victim, instead I'm attempting to start a conversation. I'm aware not everyone would want to read it which is why i placed a TLDR. If they read that and are interested than they can read. Immaturity is not a reason to allow someone to continue an action in my opinion. I also only posted this because a Rioter told me if I wanted to further discuss it, than this is where I should put it. So its really not for everyone to read.

: “My quest beckons” - Nami in the LCS
I think Nami is a pick that only works to its maximum on the pro scene because the average players don't have the kind of teamwork that it takes to protect her squishiness while also maximizing her potential in team fights and lanes.
