    In a way I'm a little bit envious of guys who don't find something like a pedal being called "Pussy Melter" excruciatingly embarrassing.

    This is true and I agree with you about it being very unfortunate.
    However, protesting against literally anything I don't like, doesn't make me look more serious, it makes people lose respect for my cause.

    In what bizarro-world universe is a petition not voicing one's opinion? And then seeing if others agree with your opinion?

    And then having those people say that they are going to vote with their dollars?

    I tend to have more respect for those who get something done, than those who do nothing.

    Even if I don’t particularly agree with a cause, I can at least respect trying to make a change in earnest.

    Lashing out in impotent rage is fun and all, but it doesn’t really do anything.

    This might be subjective but I feel petitioning something skips the natural process and is very one-sided. You can't protest in favor of something, whereas the market gives you a clear metric to measure whether people like it or not.

    Speaking of market, the people who sign the petition are people who probably aren't the target demographic anyway. I would argue they don't even play guitar. If I was evil I'd argue the only thing they play is, in fact, the victim card. :shrug:

    Can someone explain how the name of the delay patch is sexist? I doubt it.

    Wasn't there already a thread for this? Or was it just randomly mentioned in another thread?

    Even if someone did, would you really care?

    Probably not. It's the name of a toneprint. It's not like the pedal even has a digital readout for others to see what the toneprint is called.

    woman has orgasm from guitar solo in The Pick of Destiny; countless portrayals of women swooning over rockstars in movies, shows, etc:
    No problem.

    Delay patch called "Pussy Melter":

    I think she got offended by the notion that Satchel wanted a delay that was as wet as a vagina in the front row of a Steel Panther show.

    Well I mean...one of the names there, Michelle Zauner, is the multi-instrumentalist in Japanese Breakfast, which puts out well-received albums, have millions of youtube watches, and have shown up on "top 50 albums of the year" lists.

    So not to get personal but I'd argue more of a bonafide musician than you?

    Hightlighting the important part.
    Being offended is a very subjective and sometimes arbitrary thing. People should think really deep and hard about whether or not they want to go down the rabbit hole of "if it offends me, you're in trouble!" policy.

    Not necessarily, but if you'd allow me to rephrase that as: "anytime anyone gets offended about anything, it can't hurt to think about where they're coming from before dismissing it" I'd say it's a pretty spot-on description of what functioning empathy looks like. I love that attitude in people :yesway: I can't think of any time I've ever thought: "Ugh, can't stand that guy, he's too considerate and not enough of an asshole".

    I don’t really see anyone “in trouble” here though. Maybe I missed it, but were people asking for Satchel or TC to be physically harmed or jailed? Were they seeking significant financial compensation from them? Was there a push for new legislation barring effects with certain names?

    Deep and hard? That's offensive, and you really should word your comments better. :mad:

    Also: PHRASING!

    As I said, the petition is aiming at the product, not the name. You may make your own conclusions from that.

    In other news: This is a less extreme case of what is happening in the west (mostly in America by the way). If you haven't heard; it is (or will be soon?) illegal to "misgender" someone in Canada, as it is considered a hate crime. This is a legal extension of the whole "I'm offended" game.

    But riddle me this: When is something offensive? At what point does something offensive become a crime? How do you quantify "being offended" ?

    Sounds like a beta cuck libtard snowflake. Everyone knows real high energy alpha males have no need for feelings because everything is a joke for SJWs to get offended over.
