2021.12.01 15:15 srslymrarm User asks for recommendation on X-men comics to "avoid the woke stuff." Redditors debate what makes a comic woke. Mods smash that ban button.
A user in /KotakuInAction (I know, I know) asks "What era of X-Men should I avoid if I want to avoid the woke stuff?"
Honestly, that should be all the context you need to enjoy the thread here.
But let's look at some of what ensued...
It's been a while, but pretty much anything written by Chris Claremont from the 70s through the very early 90s were always the "definitive" X-Men IMO. If you stray from that it's pretty hit & miss. [link]
Claremont’s stuff is pretty woke
But it’s sincere wokeness instead of posturing for clout or grifting.
Still l, women and minorities are prominent, therefore it is political [editor's note: this is said unironically]
It really depends on how sensitively tuned your "woke radar" is.
Claremont's definitive run isn't what I would call woke, but he is certainly agonizingly liberal. It never bothered me back then but I could certainly see it being grating if I were to start reading now after enduring this darkest timeline for so many years.
If you've (understandably) become oversensitive to checkbox ticking, then you might find it hard to stomach his old school diversity push (even though the All-New All-Different lineup really hit it out of the park). Feminism? Plenty of that, though not today's feminism and not nearly as ham-fisted. Political allegories? By the truckload. Genosha = apartheid, Legacy Virus = AIDS, etc.
So yeah, you could definitely call it proto-woke, but for me these old school liberals are in a different category though they can certainly be annoying in their own way. At the very least Claremont genuinely loved the characters, they weren't just mouthpieces to him. [link]
Anything after 2008 or so. Oh and I hate those little bastard fucks on comicbooks insisting "comic books were ALWAYS political! You can't read X-Men and be a bigot!" Yeah, shut the fuck up, no it's not. X-Men were always pretty white people who bitched about being persecuted even though they looked normal, until all the gay shit was brought in. [link]
The political aspect is a difference between having politics and outright pushing a specific narrative (propaganda).
No one here has an issue with the former, only the latter, and it's the latter that woke/PC people are doing.
The former can also be nuanced, entirely fictionalized, etc. The latter tends to make everything a hamfisted allegory to the [current year].
Well the former one glorified America and the later one preaches "America bad".
Just to clarify, I think pre-2000s wokeness is much more tolerable. You see, if I was living prior to the 2000s, I would be described a liberal because I'm all about small government and maximum freedom. You can do what you like as much as you want, just don't hurt anyone or shove it down their throat. That's my ideology.
But now, I would be described as a conservative because I can't handle 2000s wokeness. I don't like the term progressive because it implies there is an universally agreed upon ideal that must be pushed and it doesn't include some kind of finish line. 10 years from now when the United States is a pink haired, soy drinking pussy of a nation, I wonder what then the progressive goal will be. You already got your race swapped, made up gender dystopia. What more do you want to change? Wouldn't surprise me if they tried to make pedophilia socially acceptable. [link
You’re asking that… about the X-Men … who were always an allegory for minority groups? [linkAnd other mod bans with comments, including:

2021.12.01 15:15 lydiocracy Do you receive a separate notification from UKIV when they have received your biometrics?
Spouse visa application, from Canada.
Submitted biometrics to VFS (priority) on 18th November and got an e-mail that same day saying "The processed visa application for GWF reference number xxxxx was forwarded to UK Visas and Immigration on Thu Nov 18 2021." - but nothing from UKIV to confirm they received it.
Just wondering if there is any other contact we should expect to receive during this process other than (hopefully!!!!) the notification it's been approved and the passport is being sent back?

2021.12.01 15:15 MrHM_ Does stake DAI in DeFi makes sense?
Hi, the title is more or less self explained. I am new to this world (crypto and the CDC), I have read a lot but still there are some confusing things here.
I saw that a lot of you are staking CRO (in CDC or DeFi), however I saw that the APY of DAI is 25%, and since the idea of DAI is a stablecoin, the risk of losing is smaller (never zero).
Am I missing something? Or really is a good idea to stake some DAI on DeFi?

2021.12.01 15:15 Solfaroiy Brand New Shiryo - Inu - DAPP based game & NFT’s in development! - Liquidity Lock - Launching Now on BSC
Welcome to Shiryo - Inu
Shiryo - Inu launching now on Ethereum and it seems that play to earn game tokens are still one of the best niches to buy in DeFi! The roadmap details a fully functional trading card based game which will allow for the earning of the native token through different incentives including weekly competitions!
Contract Address: 0x0e675f042b4C4053062e94ff4738e233D846A31b
The team recently released concepts for the trading cards on their Telegram group and their design team has done an amazing job, this is a gem in the making and it is still incredibly early if you get in now. Having only been life for less than 24 hours the token is sitting at just above a $1M market cap which is incredibly low for a play to earn game, the team is really active on Telegram and the holders seem to be diamond handed after seeing the potential in this project!
Everything about this project has been super clean so far, the chart looks good and the website and concepts released so far have been on point.
The whitepaper is to be released today alongside more mockups of the concept for the game, the marketing has been on point with calls from all the biggest names on Telegram and Twitter. The developer even just hired a social media specific marketing agency to help get even more eyes on the project, Shiryo-Inu is about to become synonymous with the likes of Floki and Mononoke - Inu, don’t sleep on this one!

2021.12.01 15:15 salami-head Settle an argument: is APT roughly synonymous with nation-state threat actor?
Title says it
I'm a pmm so not a technical expert but I've been trying to tell a colleague that basically all APTs are nation state backed attackers. There may be a few edge cases where some sophisticated threat actor could be considered an APT but this is super rare. In my book, even skilled threat actors wouldn't be considered APT because their objective is to make money and they only maintain persistence long enough to accomplish that
My colleague basically says APT is any advanced attacker, could be a ransomware gang, a nation state squad, or just some lone wolf who knows his shit. Basically just not script kiddies and noobs

2021.12.01 15:15 RealBrookeSchwartz Can't tag anyone
Hi, reddit instagram people!
So, I've been trying to post something on Instagram for several days, but I can't tag anyone. I don't really know what to do. I tap the photo, but nothing happens. Sometimes I swipe to my second or third picture and I'm able to tag one person, but then I can't delete that tag, and when I press the screen again, nothing happens; it's like the screen froze, but I can still X out fine.
I have multiple accounts and it's happening on all of them. I powered off my phone and started it again, but the problem is still happening; I keep closing my Instagram app and reopening it again, but it's still a problem; and I even updated the app to its newest version. Nothing has helped.
Any suggestions? Thanks!

Such a relief to finally be done with this. I'm hoping this helps me move up within the government or transition into a different career, I'm pretty sick of being a mechanic.
Reddit was great help, my wife and kids are happy that my weekends won't be spent in front of the computer.
I'm glad that I won't have to write another long paper.
