Hey fellow DarkRP's. I've had something on my mind for a while that's been eating at me like a hungry wolf. I feel as if player disrespect isn't being taken very seriously on the server, or that certain mods/ admins are ignoring it. Within the past week I've played on here (I play quite often, this was
my favorite Gmod server to come onto. Notice I say was
. This is because within the past week, the amount of disrespect and harassment I've recieved for being transgender and homosexual. Yes, I've recently come out as transgender and homosexual to the server because someone of VIP status (I will not say whom, mostly because my memory isn't all that good and there were a few people involved- I don't want to blame someone for the actions of someone else by mistake), had "jokingly" insulted someone by saying, and I quote: "You sound like a transgender person". The reason this was so insulting to me was not completely because they said that, but how
they said it. Being trans male, it's a real issue when it comes to sounding the part of a man and it's not an easy thing to deal with. This caused an argument, and soon after two or three different VIP statused people had begun (very mild) harassment which made me feel quite uncomfortable, calling trans people "trannies" ect ect. Now, the insults didn't end. There have been people before who called me a filthy tranny, a nasty girl and some other disgusting names, but within the past weak I've been RDMed over and over, jailed and been called horrible things because I am transgender and gay. And it's not just the trans/gay harassment, but the fact people have verbally (not on chat, so I couldn't screenshot) told me to kill myself, that I'm a piece of shit, failed abortion, that my mother should have abused me more ect- (which actually hit a little to close to home there). You don't fucking say that to people. Today after I was RDMed multiple times, SPECIFICALLY for being trans, (the player was banned for 1 day earlier this evening just for mass rdm), people kept saying how I need to grow up/ that I can't always have a safe space and other shit like that. Yeah, this is the internet, I get people are going to be dicks. I've dealt with a lot of assholes on this server before, but this is a WHOLE new level of bullying. Nobody should feel that they have to permenently leave their favorite server because they're being harassed. To add to this, because of these recent events my mental state has drastically decreased to the point I've been having suicidal thoughts. It's just not fucking okay. Please, staff, TAKE PLAYER DISRESPECT SERIOUSLY. Do NOT ignore people who feel they are being attacked just because they feel a certain way. I am begging you here. I don't want to have to leave my favorite server because it's not being taken seriously.Screenshots of what I've been able to upload/ capture:
Those aren't even close to half the things people have said, and doesn't include over mic speech. Take this seriously.
