    Celebrating Pride

    You know, I have only been hanging around the MadCast Discord for a short while, but I am constantly in awe of how awesome the community is. Not only do you post a truly educational thread on gay rights and where we are now compared to just 50 years ago, but you open the floor for others to speak which is above and beyond. I just got out of the Air Force after 10 years and I feel like the military will always be behind. Racism and bigotry is what I have had to deal with my entire career and I am a straight white male. Thank you for posting this! It is instances like this that I can educate my kids and set a good example.

    This really put it into perspective for me, I was never quite understanding of why the LGBTQ+ community was always so hurt, but now I understand that the rude and discriminatory language used against them in everyday reactions and language defies their legitimacy and a valid group in society. I am going to make a conscious effort to watch myself during games and otherwise for the language I use, because until now, I never realized the certain effect it had on the people I interact with.

    If I might chip in here, I agree to an extent with this. I strongly believe that, for the most part, gender is a social construct that is simply used to try and keep people in tidy boxes. I don't see any need for clothes to be divided into men and women, or for the colors pink and blue to be used for nearly everything related to baby showers and newborns. I don't care for the belief that boys shouldn't cry, or that female emotions are always over-complicated. However, I also tend to think that most people who identify as trans may simply be confused or influenced by these very social constructs. This comes from personal experience, as I used to think I was a trans female-to-male in high school when I liked video games and cargo pants and hated pink flowers and wearing dresses. Obviously I now know that I don't need to give a flying fuck what "society" thinks and I dress and talk the way I want to even if it means I come off as being butch or something. That does not mean that I am against transsexual people or think that they're stupid. I support everyone's happiness and believe you should be allowed to do whatever you want to do (within reason) to live a happy comfortable life, but there are still certain aspects of society that I feel are negatively impacted because they rely on the rigidity of logic and don't care for your feelings. I think that your biological sex should be referenced in regards to anything that is either: A - divided by standardized gender (since one reason divisions still exist in major sports is due to biology), or B - directly related to the mechanics of your physical sex, such as medical purposes or the type of bathroom facilities you need Outside of those types of situations, I don't care what you want me to call you as long as you're a decent human being and we can respect each other.

    I'd like to offer a different take on this particular pattern. I grew up in a household that veered back to religion after my mother had a debilitating stroke. I was enrolled in a private Christian elementary and middle school, and a scholarship afforded me the opportunity to go to a Christian High School, and I spent a semester at a Christian University before I dropped out and chose a different path in life. I consider myself Christian still, and I still read the Bible and go to church occasionally. I spent a lot of time thinking about my faith and theology as a young man, and if I may draw attention to another of your sentences- This is true of the Christian faith as well as the Islamic one. I cannot speak authoritatively to the actions of Imams or other leaders in Islamic faith and/or its institutions specifically, but I am aware of the same rot of hypocrisy between the teachings of the Quran and the actions of its professed believers that exists in much the same fashion in Christianity, especially American Evangelicalism, which contains a nest of poisonous vipers I'd like nothing more than to strangle. When you reach your majority in life and have grown up in a faith and you find yourself talking to people you've been told to admonish, fear, detest, and destroy and discover they are more of the Lord's lost people like yourself, you are presented with a difficult question. Is the Book wrong, are the people who taught you wrong, or are those people truly deserving of the condemnation and hate you've been taught? For many people, it is a burden they cannot easily shoulder. They either break from a faith they feel has deceived them, walk away from the dishonest people of a faith who have misrepresented its teaching systemically, or firmly commit to the hypocritical foundation of a permanent state of 'Otherness' for people 'not like them,' an Otherness that makes them deserving of the worst fates. To me, the real evil and suffering in the situation above is that we have allowed small people to reach heights they do not deserve, and to thereafter buy-in and support the dictates of those same small people who would use our faiths to their own destructive, selfish ends; small people who have done so with such a level of success that they have succeeded in pushing an entire generation away from faith when their hypocritical selfishness is laid bare.

    Reading further into your post I understand that diverting from religion isn't the road I'm going to ask you to go down, but I would love to ask you this. Taking religion out of it entirely, where do you disagree with the queer community? What actions, stances (politically or otherwise,) do you disagree with? Not referencing you specifically, but when I ask men that I generally get the response of "well, lesbians are okay, cause they're hot" or some other perverse fantasy, etc. I've only ever received a few valid responses to it, which generally is just some childish form of "it's icky." Which I know the question pulls away from your comment entirely, but as someone who was raised in a very religious upbringing, and understands that side very well. I'm always curious as to what others on that side of the fence have to think when they take away what they were taught. It won't affect friends you make, it's your lifestyle vs my lifestyle, but just because we don't agree fundamentally on that doesn't mean that you can't be cordial and respectful of each other. It's an agreement to disagree. I have no ill will of hate, only tolerance and acceptance. I don't focus my energy on hate, I try to be more optimistic and looking forward to the future. What you might see as the end of days, I see as evolution in society, free will, and thought. It won't keep progressing though without conversations just like these.

    I missed the Phantom needing a 4 cost unit. that one will be struck from the list. As far as getting hit with not having something in the pick that you can use, yes, you can choose anything just to get you started. If we add the stipulation of being able to use whatever gets you buy until the first PvP round, I think it should alleviate some of the trouble. Meaning Glacial and Demon don't get totally screwed over. Going off the % chance chart as a reference, I think I will change the comp chart a bit and strike Elementalist, Imperial and Phantom as mentioned above. This will make the remaining comps all have access to either a T1 or T2 champion early enough to make a comp by the first PvP round as you will have hit level 3 by then. Hitting level 3 gives you a 30% chance at getting T2 champions. In theory you could still get crap luck and never see enough champions of your comp by that point. If that happens you have 2 options, 1) tough it out and take the HP hits or 2) resign yourself to the fact that RNGesus hates you. >.< The Revised list would look like this: 1 - Noble 2 - Glacial 3 - Demon 4 - Yordle 5 - Knight 6 - Gunslinger 7 - Sorcerer 8 - Assassins 9 - Void 10 - Brawler 11 - Shapeshifter 12 - Ranger 13 - Wild 14 - Blademaster 15 - Pirate @MadCast: Dez Find me in Discord and we can hash out a few more details and run a few mock games. Maybe we can find a few other people that would be interested in testing out some of this with us.

    In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall on the 18th of June, 1969. I would like to bring to this community my version of Pride and what it means. In this thread I welcome open discussion, whether you agree or otherwise. I ask that you please remain civil, but feel free to express your opinions here and ask questions any questions you like. I'd like to start off with a trip back in time through a wonderful viDoc provided by NBC "Stonewall 50: The Revolution" a two part series running approx. 22 mins. It covers the history of queer and gay activism dating back to the 1920's. "I hope that out of all the attention being given to Stonewall on this 50th anniversary, that people learn that Stonewall was not the start of the LGBTQ civil rights movement. That it was a key turning point." - Eric Marcus, author of Making Gay History. This documentary quickly covers the history of gay rights movements, discrimination, and how we as a people have come to where we are today in the United States. Focusing on history such as drag balls in the 1920's, Pansy raids and the campy repartee, the end of the prohibition era, and further on. "The first thing they did in New York, when they legalized the consumption of alcohol again was to establish the state liquor authority, and from the very beginning it said a place could not become disorderly. And they ruled that the simple presence of gender queers or homosexuals made a place disorderly. So the state itself ruled that it could not serve or employee a homosexual or gender queer, or even let them assemble. And so gay bars became illegal. Now there continued to be gay bars, but they were forced to depend upon the criminal syndicates to give them protection from the police, and usually paying off a local officer. This was an effort to push queers out of it ... to make them invisible." From Wikipedia on the Stonewall Riots: "Gay Americans in the 1950's and 1960's faced an anti-gay legal system. Illinois decriminalized sodomy in 1961, but at the time of the Stonewall riots every other state criminalized homosexual acts, even between consenting adults acting in private homes. "An adult convicted of the crime of having sex with another consenting adult in the privacy of his or her home could get anywhere from a light fine to five, ten, or twenty years—or even life—in prison. In 1971, twenty states had 'sex psychopath' laws that permitted the detaining of homosexuals for that reason alone. In Pennsylvania and California sex offenders could be committed to a psychiatric institution for life, and [in] seven states they could be castrated." (Carter, p. 15) Through the 1950's and 1960's, castration, emetics, hypnosis, electroshock therapy, and lobotomies were used by psychiatrists to try to "cure" homosexuals. The last years of the 1960's, however, were very contentious, as many social/political movements were active, including the civil rights movement, the counterculture of the 1960s, and the anti-Vietnam War movement. These influences, along with the liberal environment of Greenwich Village, served as catalysts for the Stonewall riots. Very few establishments welcomed openly gay people in the 1950's and 1960's. Those that did were often bars, although bar owners and managers were rarely gay. At the time, the Stonewall Inn was owned by the Mafia. It catered to an assortment of patrons and was known to be popular among the poorest and most marginalized people in the gay community: drag-queens, transgender people, effeminate young men, butch lesbians, male prostitutes, and homeless youth. Police raids on gay bars were routine in the 1960's, but officers quickly lost control of the situation at the Stonewall Inn. Tensions between New York City Police and gay residents of Greenwich Village erupted into more protests the next evening, and again several nights later. Within weeks, Village residents quickly organized into activist groups to concentrate efforts on establishing places for gays and lesbians to be open about their sexual orientation without fear of being arrested." The first Gay Pride marches took place one year later on the anniversary of the raid. The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world. If you have the time and want more insight into queer culture I highly recommend watching Paris Is Burning, which you can find on Netflix. "Paris Is Burning is a 1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. Some critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the "Golden Age" of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America." It has a lot of pop culture references that we utilize today in the queer community, you'll notice a lot of them if you're a fan of RuPaul's Drag Race. We coin a lot of our iconic turns and phrases from this era and specifically this viDoc. It's a wonderful representation of the gay community during the trying times of the AIDS crisis, and police brutality. An insight into yesteryear, and a guideline to how we've evolved our culture over the years. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Unfortunately 50 years later and we're still having problems in the queer community. Since Obergefell v. Hodges just two days before the 46th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we were granted the legalization of same-sex marriage in all fifty states. While this is an amazing accomplishment within the community, we still have an uphill battle to fight. Hate crimes against LGBT individuals are still shockingly prevalent across the country. In 2015, nearly one in five hate crimes committed in the US was due to sexual orientation, and another 2% of crimes were committed because of gender identity. There has been an epidemic of violent crime against transgender individuals, particularly trans women of color, in recent years, including eight who have been killed just this year. Trans women of color are among the most vulnerable minorities in the country, fighting against racism, sexism, transphobia, and, frequently, poverty, putting them at higher risk for violence. Still, 15 states across the country do not include gender or sexual identity under their hate crime laws, another 13 states only cover sexual orientation, and four states have no hate crime laws at all. Which brings me to this wonderful video created by Jubilee. Adoption non-discrimination laws protect LGBT parents from discrimination by adoption agencies and officials. Some states permit state-licensed child welfare agencies to refuse to place and provide services to children and families, including LGBT people and same-sex couples, if doing so conflicts with their religious beliefs. Only 28% of LGBT population lives in states where state law explicitly prohibits discrimination in adoption based on both sexual orientation and gender identity. "Families don't have to match. You don't have to look like someone else to love them." — Leigh Anne Tuohy Conversion therapy laws prohibit licensed mental health practitioners from subjecting LGBT minors to harmful "conversion therapy" practices that attempt to change their sexual orientation or gender identity. These laws do not restrict the practice among religious providers. We still have thirty-six states that have no laws surrounding these practices. There is a wonderful memoir from Garrard Conley titled Boy Erased: A Memoir of Identity, Faith, and Family. Giving an insider's perspective and opinions on the going's on inside these "therapies". It was also popularized as a movie: In most states, gay and trans individuals can be fired from their job on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. That means that regardless of job performance or ability, a person can lose their job if their boss finds out about and disagrees with their identity. The lack of protections force individuals to remain in the closet, guarding the secrets of who they are, in order to earn a living. That problem is compounded when LGBT people can be also legally be denied housing based on their identities. But across America, that is the reality for many gay and trans citizens. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development reported in 2013 that same sex couples experience unfavorable treatment in renting homes online, and there are still 28 states where housing discrimination is legal. LGBT youth are more likely to have health issues because of substance abuse and mental health issues, and trans individuals can face discrimination from health insurers simply for identifying as trans. In 37 states, insurance companies can discriminate based on sexual and gender identity. Queer individuals face high rates of discrimination in prison, where trans inmates have a particularly grueling history of abuse, including being put in solitary confinement allegedly for their own protection. The US prison population has twice the number of LGBT individuals as the non-incarcerated population (8% vs 4%), suggesting that LGBT individuals are over-represented in jails, and the number is even higher for those in juvenile detention (20%). About 40% of homeless youth in America identify as LGBT and often end up on the streets because they are rejected by their family members. There, young gay, lesbian, bi, and trans kids are more likely to face violence, end up in danger or participate in crime, and encounter trauma that can affect their entire lives. A stunning 41% of trans adults have reported attempting suicide, followed by 10% to 20% of LGBT adults, according to The Williams Institute. The rate for the rest of the population hovers around 4%. America has come a long way in protecting the rights of gay, bi, and trans citizens, but there’s still work to do. This June, let’s remember to start with acceptance.

    @Nimli biggest thing with a kiddo, is just to let them be themselves. You set rules as far as acceptable behavior and whatnot, but outside of that let your little dude be himself. If he only wants to go to boy's parties, that's his call. Also, at his age, that's perfectly normal. When he gets older, if he has any questions about it, then would be the time to bring up the many many different forms sexuality takes. Until then, he's a kid, let him be one

    I'm sorry for not responding in here with any updates to the format or responses to your comments. I have been for the most part going over them in the League of Learning into I do at the start of the event. I appreciate your feedback and as @MadCast: Pushover stated above the format of pure inhouse will generally be better for actually learning and imporving the mechanics of a person but I feel that without being able to practice them in real situations against a group of people you are unfamiliar with the mechanics don't really get driven home as hard. With that 3 weeks of inhouse and 1 week of normal to apply what we went over that month has been mostly successful and will be a rotation that I will follow for the event going forward. I know I have also talked to @MadCast: Namflow as well as @MadCast: Dez, to name a few, about their thoughts on the format as well as many others. I appreciate everyone sticking with the event through some of the growing pains and I know there are always way to improve on things so I'd like to ask you to keep bringing your feedback to this thread or to me specifically so we can make the event better and bring more people to the community. I agree that having a person to spectate for each game would be ideal but that can't always be achieved. I will always volunteer to sit out and spectate if we have overflow as well as a bench if something happens to someone. I know there are a few others that do the same and I thank you for that. To address the games that turn into stomps, I know this is very frustrating for both sides as neither side really gets anything out of the game at that point. I'm always open to hear suggestions about ways to balance teams. If that means having permanent captains for teams (provided they can show up consistantly and are willing to lead a team of inhouse) where we can basically setup teams where there will be specific people always together / always against each other for the sake of balance then that is something we can try to figure out. Unfortunatly its rather difficult to balance well when we are rotating people in and/or have new players of varying skill levels join in for the event. Its amazing to have a solid core group of people that tend to show up on a regular basis. I'd love to find a way to use that to our advantage so games are less of a stomp and more of a fight to the bitter end.

    It was a dope card and I believe it lived up to the hype. Jones fought an odd fight (though I still think he won), but there was fireworks all down the card from there. Nunes is the GOAT. Called her shot and won with the move Holm used to KO Rousey? Gangsta! Gamebred is probably the realest dude in the UFC. Ben Askren asked for an assbeating and I agree that he go off lucky being instagibbed. Rockhold might need to move on from AKA or something. I don't know if he's washed up, but nothing is working for him right now. I can't seem him moving up the ladder against the best of the light-heavyweight division. Sanchez needs to retire. I'm tired of watching an all time great get beat up and sound crazier and crazier. Gilbert Melendez also needs to hang em up. I don't think he's got anything else to prove. Outside of those big ones, I'm looking forward to seeing more Song Yadong. He looks like a monster in the making.

    I personally think that my generation has gone away from the truths and inspirations of rap, and have moved on to the songs about gangs, killings, having plenty of women at the same time, and being prod of all of it. Most new raps are about sex, money, drugs, and success, and I think that says a lot about a generation. Personally the raps that I listen to are known as "lyrical raps" which is a separate category from "Mumble rap". My favorite rappers are 2 Pac (RIP) and J-Cole, Logic, and the one everybody likes, Eminem.

    It's 2019, if you're still using homophobic and racist terms when you're upset it shows a great deal about your character to me. If you take words that were born out of hate and contempt and think that using them so nonchalantly in this modern day is alright ... boy do you have another thing coming. I am someone who will not tolerate the use of the term faggot, or otherwise to demean something, or someone, even in a passive way. To even call something gay because it was "bad" is a huge fuck you to the entire queer community. You're still passively saying that being gay is deplorable. Put yourself in this scenario, you're a young queer youth growing up in society, with insurmountable pressure from those around you to be a certain way. Religious bias, societal standards, and generalized homophobia all taking a toll on the fact that you're already dealing with the things a normal teenager goes through with puberty, peer pressure, etc. Now imagine that you're that youth sitting in a room with your friends and they use the term gay in reference to bad things happening, or joke around and call each other fag, denoting something poor happening. That molds you. It shows you that even in the slightest people still denote you to be this bad thing. You're still a joke in the eyes of society. Now take that exact same scenario, and bring the age group up to twenty-somethings that should know better than to just throw words around so flippantly. It's absolutely childish that grown men would still be using that kind of vocabulary. “Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.” - Yehuda Berg Think before you speak. Your words have meaning.

    Not saying people are evil deep down but in our current climate kids are not taught that you can lose gracefully. Everyone gets a trophy and people can't stand losing so bad or are unhappy with their own life that they want to bring other people down. I know personally that since the last couple of years of hard times, it's much easier to rage put now than in previous years.

    I know this is a common sentiment, but personally, if i didn't hold on to that hope/impression, i might be dangerously apathetic. if that makes me naive, so be it. i may not be very vocal when it comes to politics, but at least i'm listening, learning, and making a (small) difference.

    LoL Mafia

    A LoL Mafia bot has appeared on our beautiful MadCast Discord Server. I wanted to lay out what it is and how it works quickly. FIRST with LoLMafia, all commands will begin with "l!" Which is a lowercase L followed by a !. This is to distinguish it from other bots easily. ~~~~"l!startgame"~~~~ "l!joingame <code>" ~~~~ A Game of Mafia is played with 2 teams (split by the bot randomly, for LoL this would be 2 teams of 5 by default), and with one of those people in the game from either team being named the Mafia(By private discord message all secret like) ONLY the Mafia will receive a PM at Game start. The Mafia's goal is to be sneaky sneaky and make their team lose without being obvious and caught. ~~~~"l!votephase"~~~~ "Red Team" OR "Blue Team" ~~~~ Vote in DMs with reactions~~~~ After your game of League of legends is played with the assigned teams (For League of Legends time wise an ARAM makes sense), you enter the "l!votephase" which will then ask in chat whether the "Red Team or "Blue Team" won the game. This is important as you receive points for just winning the game also. *IF* the Mafia was on the winning team, NO VOTE will take place and their teammates will receive 2 points for foiling the Mafias plans, the losing team receives 0 points for Failing to beat someone that was trying to throw, and the Mafia receives no points for failing. If the Mafia is on the losing team, a vote is sent to each player in their DM's with numbers corresponding to each player in the game. You will react with the number next to the person you want to vote for. If you are the Mafia, you don't get the Voting message. ~~~~You get points for~~~~ Winning. 1 Point if Mafia on the other team. 2 Points if on the winning team. Voting correctly. 1 point for each vote correct Mafia, 3 points for successfully losing AND not having more than half the vote. You can check your points with "l!mypoints" and there are commands for a weekly leader board and an all time leader board ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Questions always welcome, as I realize all of that was probably clear as mud.

    I am 24 years old and have been active duty in the Air Force for 6 1/2 years. I have never once voted and here’s why. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils. No candidates I fully support have made it far enough for me to vote for. Example in the last presidential election I supported Dr. Ben Carson, has he made it all the way I would have voted and voted for him. Since he didn’t and I did not fully support either candidate I did not vote. I 100% believe voting or choosing not to vote is your individual right not a responsibility but I also agree with the philosophy of if you don’t vote you don’t get to bitch about the officials in office.

    I think I prefer Marvel for superheroes and DC for villains, as a general rule. There are some exceptions, for I really, really hate Cap. America and Magneto is an awesome villain, but I think overall Marvel superheroes are more interesting and DC villains are just better thought out and more fun to hate.

    Been doing a research paper for the last two days and I realized that I need one very awesome, chill song on repeat to really get into good essay writing. I love this dude's voice, and have been listening to this song for a total of like 8 hours now and I'm not even close to fed up with it.

    Pineapple pizza is a delicious misnomer as while it's tasty it's not pizza much in the way a cookie covered with a thin layer of ice cream and topped with candies and whip cream and chocolate drizzle can be delicious and look like a pizza it's not a pizza... looking at you dairy queen...
