Feedback "Furry" gimmick, Server 2 6/21/19
#1
Sad 
On a Kondaru map earlier today, someone was given the medal "feelin' yiffy" and given the "furry" accent - as well as instructed to be treated like a pinata. The situation it felt very inappropriate to me. The "yiffy" thing is sexual in nature and is greatly uncomfortable for me to hear about, and the cutesy speech was even more upsetting. It dredged up some very upsetting memories that I'm still trying to come to terms with and the sexual connotation of the "yiffy" medal just made things so disturbing I had to exit the round. After some back and forth with other mentors I've decided to make an admin feedback thread about it because I don't know of any other way to explain how distinctly uncomfortable the round made me feel.

Here is what happened, in objective terms:

1) A player prayed to be cluwned
2) They got made a catperson
3) They were given owo speech
4) a fake medal (Feelin' Yiffy) was displayed
5) about 30 minutes later, they prayed for more stuff to happen to him, so we made them small, gave them some weird scream sounds, and more accents (yee and butt accents), and renamed to "IM GOKU".

Other than that, they played the round as a normal security officer, almost catching a few traitors and being treated normally by crew. Then they got killed with a katana trying to arrest a katana rampager.

The "pinata" was an NPC clown that was spawned in the bar, unrelated to the previous events. The real clown complained about being left out, so Centcomm made an announcement that was like "okay the real clown is now also full of candy". Nobody actually attacked the clown.

I can avoid mentioning yiffing in the future. The "Feelin' Yiffy" joke is an old callback gimmick that's been done once a year or so since 2011, and maybe it's not as funny if you don't get the reference. That said, we have always allowed some level of mild/benign sexual humor, especially in the Discord, so long as it's not explicitly pornographic or creepy. See: people being allowed to name their characters "Dixon Balls" and such.

Thank you for being considerate and explaining the situation.

Alright, time to toss my two cents in.
While i wasnt really there for the event(I belive i was doing telesci and stayed in the room the enitire time) I did see the medal, and the IM GOKU person running around, it did feel a little weird seeing the term yiffing used. While i do like seeing prauers anwsered, (none of mine have), and i do like seeing funny gmicks, perhaps a differnt term should have been used instead of yiffing.
Anyways, thats my two cents

imo this kind of stuff is hilarious and isn’t detrimental at all to goon, would rather not have a precedent set that holds back admins on trying to do funny shit/fuckery. My stance on furries is widely known (can’t believe I just wrote that) but if it isn’t in ur face sexual it should be fine. My 2 cents

read the damn stickies.

not locking this was not an open invitation for everyone to come give their two cents on the matter. don't do this on other peoples' complaints in the future unless you've got something relevant to add about the matter as it happened, or for a similar pattern of behavior.

neither of those examples is what happened here so, locked.
