Also, while I think the reaction to Risky's referring to "Cosmo" was a massive overreaction, I do think GDQ allowing "Cosmo" to be an actual choice in the WW file name was a bad idea considering the obvious trolling intent given the previous controversy and game it was for.

I'll give the SJW crowd that one.

I was permabanned from their chat. Time to switch my free twitch prime sub to something else. Jerks.
Did you actually say something related to gender?

I saw a post on Reddit that showed legit, non insulting comments being deleted because they were gender related while actual insults got through. The Reddit post was later removed by an r/speedrun mod.

Deleted:
-Comment explaining why someone else was banned for making a gender related comment.
-A complement towards a female-identifying person on screen. It was along the lines if "red looks really good on her" or something.

Not Deleted:
-A comment referring to three speedrunners as "an elf, a dwarf, and a hobbit"

GDQ chat as well r/speedrun both have very trigger happy mods. They do just as much bad as they do good.

I mostly definitely am not. I just, hold on.

You know what, after trying to mark how many things were said in your post that just made the brain hurt, it was more of the context than what you said, in general I find "Reddit" and the entire "community" toxic to productive human living. Kind of like the concept of "youtube celebrities."

Oh, yeah. Any community with an hivemind like that is pretty toxic.
