Is this normal?

Recommended Posts

First, I apolegise for the low quality zoomed-in screenshot that is provided.

The story begins when I was driving on the Calais to Duisburg road in EU2, I saw a person that was driving recklessly and I warned him that I would report him for this then suddenly, something really creepy happens.
I do not know whether my username or custom paint job (Mint Toothpaste) caused this but I was asked if I'm an LGBT or not and and another player said that I'm "Gay" .
I discussed this with my friend M and M told me that there's a woman that's known as an LGBT which is also called Anson.
I was certainly confused after this because I don't want to, my parents gave me this name and I just can't change it.

Let me start off with this. The TMP community is a great community and as with all communities, I am sure you will find some people that like to behave negatively. I can't really read what your screen says. Wheter you are LGBT or not, what does it matter? You can just be yourself in whatever way you wish and others must just accept and respect that. If you feel offended or the need to have this dealt with, I suggest reporting this. You can discuss this with a game moderator and solve it more in private.

I would not always take everything seriously what people tell me, if someone would write to me, I would simply ignore it.

As with any large community, you're going to get people that act a fool just because they can. As someone who IS gay, I've learned to not let stuff like this affect me. Brush it off and just keep driving. Those people are only trying to get a reaction out of you and that's it. Hopefully you'll have a better experience next time. <3

Good Evening,

 

I would like to start of by saying,the TruckersMP community is very diverse, you have the realistic people and then you have the toxic people - the person in the screenshot above. Whether or not you're LGBT it doesn't matter, at the end of the day you're still human so who cares. 

 

I think the best solution to solve this situation will be to report the user using the official TruckersMP report system, which the Game Moderators can deal with in an appropriate manner. However, yes that person sound be off the road for a bit, but long term it's still going to effect you, therefore, you should just leave this topic and this situation behind you. 

 

 

I hope I addressed you concern,

Encrypted :)

In general, no one may be discriminated on account of sex, descent, race, language, homeland, origin, religion, religious or political views or disability.
A violation against this principle is not only a violation of the rules but more importantly a crime.

Please report these players immediately, as the international and open-minded community of TruckersMP does not tolerate such behavior.

Talking about greatness of a new kind :D

 

On a serious note.ignore the chat, completely; you can hide it by pressing F9. Enjoy the game instead. Schizophrenia became a natural thing for the hateful part of the community in general, people don't have simple education.

Does it really matter?  Most of us don't care what someone's sexual orientation is.  If anyone does care, don't tell them, no one needs to know what someone else does with their life, especially if they're just going to be trolls.

Unfortunately there is a considerable amount of homophobia and hostility towards the LGBT community amongst the players, we just need to rewind a few months to when TMP changed their Facebook profile picture  to the rainbow design for pride month. 

 

An unfortunate number of the comments simply came from ignorance, being uninformed, and bigotry. It could also be because many of the players are rather young (primary- middle school) and haven't learnt a more dignified and mature vocabulary yet.

There's a still a lot of ignorance regarding this subject, especially amongst younger players who simply have no way of understanding. They're in the wrong, you're right, & concentrate on your driving :). I see plenty of male users out there with e.g pinkish paintjobs.

I don't understand why people use "gay" as  a form of insult. Living in Canada, that's completely unthinkable for me. People need to grow up, this is 2019. 

 

People in some parts of England misuse the word all the time. I grew up in such an area. But then they misused a lot of words...

Yes, it's normal.

 

You send a provocation to that person without being involved, he responded accordingly by sending provocation to you. Perfectly normal human interaction.

Now you are in shock for being called LGBT/Gay.

The question is, why are you in shock for being called LGBT? Did you felt like being called weirdo?

Why are you searching for the clues that might gave a reason to that player to call you LGBT/Gay?

Do you want to remove those clues?

If you can't handle Internet arguing, just mind your business and don't start one.

People have freedom of speech, they might throw nasty words at your face.

My comment: Pissed, imagine you being called an LGBT by someone on the internet but you aren't one, would you be happy? For me, your comment is quite rude. All I want is to share my experience on TMP.
