Sweet Baby Inc doesn’t even remotely do what many think it does, but on the modern internet, that doesn’t matter

    Except they’re not just saying “we don’t like this” and moving on. They’re using dogwhistles (“woke” is only the first one) and 4-chan level type of slurs in their cries of conspiracy. It’s a thinly disguised hate club, games are only an excuse.

    They tried to progressively hide it from their group’s front page, editing its language several times, but it was still there in the discussions in and around the group.

      why are you just totally ignoring how this whole thing started in the first place with a sweet baby employ trying to take the group down and the account of the creator. yes editing it for people exactly like you that cant handle words on the internet and that needs to call everything hate so that you can get your way but that’s not going to work anymore now like how it always should have been you are just very very funny.

          I don’t really know much about the sweat baby controversy, but whenever I see “bless your heart” it just comes of as weak tea as it avoids engaging with premises or arguments and condescends and I think it generally loses the argument from a third party perspective. At least I’ve never read it and thought, wow they really got them.

          It might be trite but I always preferred agree to disagree as a disengage tactic. That’s just my two cents on internet discourse though.
