So if you didn't know Terminator: Dark Fate has gone into massive reshots reshooting 1/3 of the movie - bad sign.

But it gets better. Rather than address the issue Terminator fans have with their beloved characters being out written the directory has given Variety an interview (read damage control) where he has accused Terminator fans of being misogynistic (women haters). So he's basically abusing Terminator's core audience, the ones who they want to buy tickets :rofl own goal?

This explains it better. well worth a watch!

Because that always work. It worked really well for EA and Battlefield. Uh, why do they always do this? They completely shit on the oldest fans of a franchise, and they somehow think it'll all work out because "woke" people buy more tickets? Hey, it might work this time for all I know.

TWD has definitely gone full SJW. Every relationship is interracial and lots of gay people. Plus, it felt more like cosplay towards the end there than the overall atmosphere when it first came on. Show became absolutely awful. I was hatewatching seasons 8 and 9.
Makes me pretty mad. I loved the show. People talk a lot of shit about it, but it addressed some really cool psychological concepts. Then season 8 came and it felt completely different right off the bat.

that was the last issue of twd that i bothered with, the previous story was really bad and the new one obviously wasn't going to be any good. was a while ago too so they've gone on from there a lot by now.

I absolutely love the Terminator franchise but I will not be going to watch this at the cinema.

Even with Genesis being complete trash I still would have given it a chance, but sorry not a fucking prayer.

That's why I prefer T1 to T2 it's much grittier and raw. He played that part perfectly. And nobody is ever going to match Michael Beihn's Kyle Reese either you genuinely saw him as some battle scared soldier from the future.

Fair enough comment if they think they could win the match, but a single point? The odds are that she will double fault at some point, or shank a return of one of your serves etc. No man who hasn't played tennis to a high standard seriously thinks they would beat her. Woke Twitter is desperate for anything that backs up their "men are trash" narrative.

I'll be honest here. I don't think she's in the wrong. People need to understand that they're on a job even when it's just an app. Like, I wouldn't be asking women out or asking for numbers when I'm working.

Now, I don't think the guy should end up on a registry or lose his job. I do think he should be reprimanded, though. I don't know. Maybe it's because I always take my jobs seriously. They said on the discussion that Uber has been adamant about this type of behavior being unacceptable. This is exactly why too. Just horrible for PR and looks unprofessional. You're there to drive someone, not asking for numbers. Be nice and everything, but I think it's taking it a bit too far to be doing what he did.

Feels like people that drive for Uber are forgetting that it's a job, and they represent a company while on the clock. Yes, they own their car, but they're still working for a company while driving people around. I can hear some counter-arguments. I just think to myself how I would be while on the clock, and it's not something I would ever think of doing.

Also, you're in a sensitive position, and you should always respect that. I mean someone has to put a lot of trust and faith in you to drive them to their location. Hell, there have been a few murders and CreepyPastas are full of allegedly true stories of creepy or dangerous Uber/Lyft experiences.

As I said, I'm definitely open to hearing what you think because I've never driven an Uber or been driven in an Uber. I don't know what's really expected of you as a driver, but I'm assuming that it's a job like any other where you can't be going around asking for numbers and dates... and her story is definitely why.

Yeah I agree. There's been some incidents where rape was involved and while there's possibly some overreacting involved, it's troubling that anyone without the extensive background research required to be a cabbie can become a Uber driver. Cabbies need to buy a $100k medallion to drive a can as well so it behooves them to behave professionally.

It's definitely a grey area with the likes of Uber and Lyft. As far as I'm aware, they're not employees, they're contractors and as such aren't really representing the company as much as they're representing themselves. Uber especially has worked very hard to make sure they're not employees and they stay that way. How that makes it any different in this particular case I can't really say. Almost any company will have something in it's code of conduct or terms of employment that says they're not allowed to flirt or ask out customers. That doesn't stop it from happening all day, everyday, in absolutely every place on earth.

I will say that Uber and Lyft etc. are significantly different from stepping into a taxi. You're getting into someone's personal care, you know their name, have their picture on your phone, they can message you, you can message them, etc. As far as I'm aware you can even chose how chatty your driver is. It's somewhere slightly further along the spectrum towards a social interaction than a taxi ride or a bus ride. Similar to how your interaction with a bartender is going to be more social that the person at the counter in MacDonald's.

Looking at that post as it's written, it was a fairly sociable ride, there were other people in the car that were chatty and social. When they left, this person "felt" a change in mood. This other guy could have felt the same change, but instead of interpreting it as a creepy or awkward vibe he might have taken it as more charged or anticipatory. When he asked if it was "cool to stay in contact" I actually don't know how Lyft works in this regard, but surely you can have preferred drivers or passengers? Shit, when I worked in sales it was totally normal to give a customer your number and tell them to stay in touch, it's part of building your client base and it helps with your own branding within the company. It also wasn't unusual for someone to leave the company and take almost all of their customers with them. So if this guy leaves Lyft and goes to Uber or even completely independent, he could potentially have a large client base in his pocket. I'm definitely not saying that's what he was trying to do, but I'm also pretty certain that it happens.

Disregarding that, the guy obviously misread a social situation, he asked her out (which she doesn't directly quote), and she got out of the car. And that was it. So? It's the comments that I find really terrifying. Everyone leaping to call it sexual harassment, when at the very worst it potentially was a pretty mild breach of company policy.

Part of the assumed risk of getting into someone else's car (lack of professionalism, obviously, not rape).

You're right about the first part. I remember reading stories that Uber is really a grey-area in terms of employment. I didn't know about preferred passengers, so as I said, I mean I could be wrong. He might've just meant that :conf.

Eh, I mean I've had to do modules on sexual harassment. It could be that colleges are a lot more strict, but it does say that if someone refuses a date (which asking is not sexual harassment) you have to leave it alone at once. Keeping in that fashion is sexual harassment. The fact that the guy stayed in front is a bit weird. Now, I have seen it that they're on their phone finding new passengers or something. It would be weird if he was staring at her, though, all through that incident.

Actually, neither of us where there, and arguing this (I'm not really arguing but for lack of a better word) is futile. I think at the end of the day this should just be a reminder how you really have to walk on egg-shells nowadays. I'm just very hard on myself when I'm working, and if I pulled something like that, I would probably expect to be reprimanded at some point. This is just me, though.

Well, from your post about the contractor part, it could be that we're just not ready for Uber/Lyft :conf. As I said, I probably watched far too many CreepyPastas, so I have that in the back of my mind when thinking about the situation between these two people.
