Oh well, thank you then for jumping into thread without any prior
knowledge and investigation, and trying to bring up censorship - that
was very productive and helpful! And NO, I don't think games should go
through censorship "does it have female> characters? are they as
powerful as the others?". People should be free to create content as
they like - and in Free software world, beside the choice that noone
is forcing you too install the game, there is also a choice of FORKING.

We aren't gamer gate, supertuxkart isn't gamers gate and your problem
with society isn't problem of supertuxkart nor Debian. And I don't
really care, but if you put some sentences - back them up with
research or links! And stop jumping into threads doing just blank
accusations and spreading misinformations around.
