    MadCast: Hitori reacted to MadCast: Al Shifra in Celebrating Pride   
    This really put it into perspective for me, I was never quite understanding of why the LGBTQ+ community was always so hurt, but now I understand that the rude and discriminatory language used against them in everyday reactions and language defies their legitimacy and a valid group in society. I am going to make a conscious effort to watch myself during games and otherwise for the language I use, because until now, I never realized the certain effect it had on the people I interact with.

    It's 2019, if you're still using homophobic and racist terms when you're upset it shows a great deal about your character to me.
    If you take words that were born out of hate and contempt and think that using them so nonchalantly in this modern day is alright ... boy do you have another thing coming. I am someone who will not tolerate the use of the term faggot, or otherwise to demean something, or someone, even in a passive way. To even call something gay because it was "bad" is a huge fuck you to the entire queer community. You're still passively saying that being gay is deplorable.

    Put yourself in this scenario, you're a young queer youth growing up in society, with insurmountable pressure from those around you to be a certain way. Religious bias, societal standards, and generalized homophobia all taking a toll on the fact that you're already dealing with the things a normal teenager goes through with puberty, peer pressure, etc. Now imagine that you're that youth sitting in a room with your friends and they use the term gay in reference to bad things happening, or joke around and call each other fag, denoting something poor happening. That molds you. It shows you that even in the slightest people still denote you to be this bad thing. You're still a joke in the eyes of society. 

    Now take that exact same scenario, and bring the age group up to twenty-somethings that should know better than to just throw words around so flippantly. It's absolutely childish that grown men would still be using that kind of vocabulary. 
    “Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
    - Yehuda Berg
    Think before you speak. Your words have meaning.

    I would be behind this choice, free to play games are always a good solid option imho, and this seems like it has a good background and community.

    MadCast: Hitori reacted to Baal in Idea: Rotating Featured Game: Tera   
    With the rotating games becoming a thing, I figured it was a good time to revisit Tera.
    Tera is a free to play MMORPG with action based combat, dodging and aiming skills, timing attacks and playing around ally's abilities.
    Got a few people who are interested and would like to toss it out there as an option for a monthly game. I would be more than willing to run it if it is chosen.
    If it isn't, but there is still sufficient interest, I will still set it up on my own, but wanted to put it up for consideration.

    I know this is a common sentiment, but personally, if i didn't hold on to that hope/impression, i might be dangerously apathetic. if that makes me naive, so be it.
    i may not be very vocal when it comes to politics, but at least i'm listening, learning, and making a (small) difference.

    I think I prefer Marvel for superheroes and DC for villains, as a general rule. There are some exceptions, for I really, really hate Cap. America and Magneto is an awesome villain, but I think overall Marvel superheroes are more interesting and DC villains are just better thought out and more fun to hate.

    MadCast: Hitori reacted to MadCast: majorhoward in Pineapple Pizza - PICK A SIDE   
    Tell me Loki my lad, do you put pineapple in a Greek salad?
    A good Greek Salad is composed of a sound, simple dressing, Cucumber, olives, Tomatoes, and onions.
    Cucumbers, olives and Tomatoes are technically fruits, yes, but to quote Miles Kington, "Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad."
    Shall I now put tomatoes, cucumbers and olives in a fruit salad with other things such as strawberries, melon and blueberries?

    I'm glad to see you've opened the floor for this discussion, double! Coming from another country that definitely has a lot further to go than the US, it always seems to me that the LGBTQ+ community here in the States is very lucky, and have it a lot easier than in other places, which quickly turns my brain into a "what are they complaining about?" train of thought. It's not fair, since that sort of mentality is not constructive at all, but it's a question nonetheless and reading your posts kind of answers my questions. Also, what happens in the U.S definitely shapes what happens in my country 5,10 or 20 years later, so the battles being fought here will most certainly ripple into Chile in the future. 
    I was having a discussion with my boyfriend about a question that came to mind, and I'd like to ask it here since I'm sure you understand LGBTQ+ culture a lot more than me. Keep in mind I don't judge either way, I'm just genuinely curious about this. In order to realize, decide, or come to the conclusion (Whichever verb or action applies, I'm not really sure) that you are bisexual, do you have to have had a relationship with both genders? The question came up because a female friend of mine posted a buch of things about being bi after saying she was just an ally of the LGBTQ+ community for years, and having only had romantic relationships with guys. Now, even though it's not always the case, I'm sure there are people that make these claims online (And never in person) just to get some attention. I'm not sure if this is the case here or not, but the whole situation got me wondering whether you can actually know for sure without having ever lived through it.
    Personally, my kind of open but not really savvy on the subject brain went no way, you need to have empirical evidence of having kissed a girl AND a boy in order to affirm that you are bi. And then I thought about it more, and decided that in order to determine, or come to the conclusion that you are, for example, a man who isn't comfortable in his body, because you should have been a woman, you haven't really been a woman and yet I am comfortable with agreeing that in that case you're transgender. So I have no idea, and I'm not even sure it's important or not when you're determining your sexuality. Maybe just the feeling that there could be sexual attraction to both is enough? No clue.
    What's your experience, or thoughts, about this?

    I ate only half a Tombstone pizza last night instead of a full one, now if only I could motivate myself to actively work that half off...

    All jokes aside, as quite a few people know, I'm a cook and I just transitioned to a new job a couple weeks ago and I've had some long days and nights, and I'm just glad that I found somewhere that is mildly stress free and the people I work with are way cooler than what I'm normally used to.  DSO and I had talked about this before, and it makes a huge difference, so I'm happy today to enjoy my three days off because I'm not dreading going back to work after the three days are over....

    I am 24 years old and have been active duty in the Air Force for 6 1/2 years. I have never once voted and here’s why. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils. No candidates I fully support have made it far enough for me to vote for. Example in the last presidential election I supported Dr. Ben Carson, has he made it all the way I would have voted and voted for him. Since he didn’t and I did not fully support either candidate I did not vote. I 100% believe voting or choosing not to vote is your individual right not a responsibility but I also agree with the philosophy of if you don’t vote you don’t get to bitch about the officials in office.
