Red Dwarf isn’t woke. Aside from the leeriness of VIII and the objections to Entangled and Dear Dave, I present the following:
Lister calls somebody a “drug-crazed transvestite”.
Kryten calls Rimmer retarded, and later a retard, in Justice.
Crossdressing is played for laughs in Tikka to Ride, and again in Back in the Red (pic related).
Rimmer says “you hope (you don’t get any sex in prison) to Lister, suggesting prison rape.
Rimmer then gets prison raped.
Not having a penis makes you a MALE prisoner.
All of Timewave.
Castration is presented as a “male” thing in Cured (second pic related).
If this thread has taught me anything it’s that Alex knows *exactly* what he’s doing despite all his many and various protestations to the contrary. The very last smidgen of plausible deniability just crawled back under its rock – he’s a wilfully obnoxious troll and a threat to the online safety of women, end of.
We need to stop pretending that it’s all fine or that he can’t help himself. He is fully capable of behaving himself (just like all the other neurodiverse people on here who seem to be able to keep ourselves largely in check), but chooses not to.

You’re only just realising this? The majority of his threads are asking questions which poke at negativity, or just asking the same thing relentlessly with minor twists. He very rarely contributes to these threads (or any others) himself unless someone calls him out of it. It’s clear he’s attempting to amuse himself, and counts a few reactionary posts as some kind of victory.
It’s fucking pathetic but it’s not new. Unlikely he’s going to grow up anytime soon.
We need to take some responsibility for ourselves in regards to his toxic behavior. It’s cause of us constantly giving him the attention he craves that he thinks it’s okay to keep behaving the way he does. I honestly think it’s for his and our own good if some action is taken here.
To be fair, that was happening for a while and he was doing it more frequently as a result. At least continually calling him a cunt in every possible way underneath his bollocks seems to keep his attention for a while in one place.
Look, there’s a simple solution to this. I publicly stated just over a month ago, in another awful thread, that if Jaws/Alex’s presence on G&T continued to cause nothing but hassle, I’d have to take action. We’ve left it as long as we can, but with no improvement in Alex’s behaviour, and it being harder than ever for the rest of the community to ignore it, he has to go. I think this is the best course of action for all of us, including Alex himself.

ahem…diagnosed “aspie” here who does not always keep myself in check…I mean I get impulsive an attention seeking here sometimes…probably lucky for me that we don’t browse each others past content here. We are judged by who we are in the present moment
