thing, but it came up as if their were no cards in there, did I do something wrong? Also is this in the wrong place?

New idea: Let's use this thread about a magic set, on a magic-specific forum, hosted on a magic-specific web site, filled with magic fans who want to talk about magic... to.. talk.. about.. Magic...
If you want to discuss world politics, gender equality, gender identity, etc, there's plenty of websites and discussion boards for that. This is not one of them. Using Magic as a metaphor for real world discussion doesn't qualify it for being here either.

The issue is that those conversations almost always turn into heated arguments that delve into real-world politics/views/etc when they continue on. This was one of those cases, where gender/etc in Magic ended up being used - at best - as a metaphor for real world issues, with several posts even skipping the topic of magic altogether to focus solely on those real world aspects.
The topic is very sensitive, and this is especially compounded with the overall real world climate on the subject. Views are polarized, and this generally leads to very passionate posts on the subject, to say the least. Even if we ignore the resulting insults, flaming, and trolling that arises - the topic itself still diverges into a very touchy subject - from both sides. As such, it's a rarity that any such discussion stays tied to Magic.
I know that such discussions often start with good intentions, but... yeah.
I'll note that I didn't warn anyone in the entire discussion until after my second red text post (and then it was for blatantly ignoring a mod request). I don't feel it fair to "punish" people for having strong feelings on real world topics, which is why the topic itself is more of the issue than the people having it.
