In an act of complete and deliberate LGBTQIA+ erasure, Riot Turkey's announcement for the beginning of the season of pride fails to mention either the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB) or Riot's support for LGBTQIA+ players and communities.
Instead of simply translating Riot's original announcement in English, found here, Riot Turkey seems to have opted to replace any mentions of pride and the LGBTQIA+ communities with "the celebration of the spring colors" that are "all around the northern hemisphere during months of May and June," and to explicitly link the cause for celebration to the calendar season in their localized announcement in Turkish.
It's not clear whether this blatant self-censorship is dictated by the Riot Games HQ or is by Riot Turkey's own decision, but in any case I believe that the end product is a disgusting mockery of the LGBTQIA+ rights movement. The erasure goes against the very idea of pride and, in my own opinion, is infinitely worse than Riot Turkey simply choosing not to celebrate pride.
The most probable reason for this decision is the fear of going against the Turkish government's increasingly draconian stance on LGBTQIA+ acceptance. However, it already has been banned to display any form of LGBTQIA+ symbolism (the most prevalent example being the rainbow flag) in the visual media and Riot Turkey's announcement and actions thus far seem to be the unaffected by that ban, which makes me wonder who exactly Riot and/or Riot Turkey is afraid of antagonizing. Unfortunately, homophobia and transphobia are also widespread among the Turkish player base and it's entirely within the realm of possibility that Riot and/or Riot Turkey wants to avoid alienating their less open-minded players. The last and the most horrifying probable reason for this erasure that I can think of is Riot Turkey's members' own personal views clashing with Riot's support for LGBTQIA+ players and communities, which I truly hope that is not the case here.

Looking at the sentiment across reddit, I've honestly never seen every style of investor unanimously love a stock this much:
r/investing likes it (thread).
r/stockmarket likes it (thread).
Even fucking r/dividends likes it (thread)
Everybody fucking loves this stock. If you think I cherrypicked threads, google “UWMC stock reddit” and open up the first 50 reddit threads. Read every comment on every one. Everybody. fucking. loves. this. stock. apes.. boomers.. value investors.. whatever the fuck the r/stockmarket people are called, they like it. Plus a lot of these threads calling this a steal are from when this was at $11+/ share. currently at $9. This thing could go up 20% tomorrow and it would still be a steal.
This thing just needs a little bit of momentum and it's a snowball effect of everybody piling in: r/stocks, r/investing, r/stockmarket, r/wallstreetbets, r/dividends are going to load up
My favourite quote from all those threads is in the r/stocks 1st thread. Top comment starts with:
"Breh this is going to run - it’s just a matter of when"
That was the top voted comment in r/stocks. Closing share price that day: $11.35. It's going up 20%, and then r/stocks thinks it's going to run. and that was pre buyback
