reddfoxxthepoet asked: the harassment gamers have faced goes back to the 80's... This is nothing new
ah yess i remember those days myself… gamers needed an escort to get into an arcade…. had to walk past lines of screaming fanatics holding signs who would throw quarters at them… the courts had ruled that arcades were technically legal but congress did everything in its power to restrict them …. until most gamers had to drive to another state to find them… or risk their lives using their own consoles at home…
ok i can understand datamining stats and move tutors but could we stop spoiling the actual trainers in oras
this is worse than what happened to xy
this game isnt even out yet
Everything that feels good is illegal, killing you, or shameful.
I think I know why we’re so fucked up a society.
Everything that feels good is either illegal, kills you slowly, or we’re told we have to keep secret and be ashamed of.
We’ve defined normal as, or allowed normal to be defined as, a state of sober un-misery. The pursuit of happiness is a right, finding it isn’t allowed except under narrow circumstances. These are the circumstances that aid the system: religious ecstasy (compliance, obedience), fiscal success (keep the economy rolling), family (create more human resources).
The result is that everyone is always stressed, always on edge, always afraid. They’ll prescribe you things for that, but only to the point that it gets you back up to the appropriate state of near-misery.
"im not homophobic it’s a children’s series" translated is:
"im not homophobic i just think children, including queer ones themselves, should not be exposed to queer characters bc of those characters queerness, which implies i think there’s something wrong/bad about being queer”
im sorry what about that isnt homophobic/queerphobic as fuck???
THIS IS THE THING
I wish once again that Tumblr’s delivery wasn’t newest-first. I’m digging backwards through my feed until i find the last post i remember. I can’t join a conversation that’s already been running three hours, I look like I’m even slower than I actually am.
Hey Tumblr staff, ever thought about implementing a last-read function? Oldest unread post first?
