  1. Just learned in my Autism Group that the term Aspergers had to retire from use due to the man it was named after having secret ties to the Nazis.

    I don't know how to link the article while on my phone.

      Huh. I had heard "Aspergers" was not being used anymore a while ago. This was something I was not aware of.

      Hopefully a name that doesn't sound like Ass Burgers.

      I laugh at that despite legit having it, but I don't think that's funny for everyone.

  2. I can't seem to do anything right these days.

      Aw, now don't be like this. What's the problem?

      I shared a video of a black YouTuber saying how it's important to not focus on racism, then commented on how artist are trolling the PC brigade for bashing a different artist from drawing Nessa with a slightly lighter skin colour. That made me a bad guy, I think.

      I don't think your a bad guy for what you've said, but nevertheless, these comments aren't really acceptable at all around these parts.

      For future reference, try to steer away from disscussing spicy subjects like those.

      Oh boooy. Yeah, not gonna lie. As an african american myself, I don't really support trying to use white-washing as a means of retaliation.

      I'm sure you meant well, but I can see how it would make you come off in a bad light. You wanna be careful about these sort of things.

      Unfortunately touching any race conversation is likely to get you vilified. When it comes to race I've noticed that typically the people who scream racist are typically the most bigoted and hateful and believe that they are owed privilege as true equality to make up for being a minority or for anything and everything that happened to their ancestors. And it isn't just race that I've seen this type of thing with.

      To give you an idea of how bad I've seen it get across the board, I would be considered by most to be a thirty something, straight, Christian, biological male. Now, in person I have had people vilify me for not being Mexican and Spanish speaking, accuse me of being rich as all heck while working in a just above minimum wage hardware store, and have had at least one woman get mad at me for not acting like the typical male and trying to flirt with her while on the clock. They aptly all tried to shame me for being a white male just for existing where all I did to them was ask them what they needed and if I could help while wearing my work uniform. And that is just a my work place. I mentioned it before but I've had women in my neighbor freak out just for me being on the same street for my morning walk simply because I am male and riding eth bus or out n public I frequently find my self terrified of most non white males I encounter just because of the hatred aimed against white males. The funny thing is though, I'm mixed. My mom is half black, half Cuban and my dad can trace his heritage to the Irish (a put upon people if ever there was one), the German, United States hillbillies, and two different native tribes (there's a subject that gets me riled up whenever US citizens try to bash other nations for how they treat people). I am anything but a white individual but being mixed would actually land me in even more hot water with some black people due to my skin color. It's absolutely crazy.

      Unfortunately it doesn't end there. Just browsing artwork I like online or checking up on family on Facebook and twitter I constantly see the LGBTQ+ community's nastier side coming out and shaming straight people for being straight even going so far as telling them to reevaluate themselves because they are probably gay or, trans or, something else, but anything but straight. Then just like the PC POC crowd they demand to be properly respected and not misgendered or otherwise as it is hateful and harmful and then turn around and post things showing actually straight people (fan art of fictional characters is one thing is one thing but I have seen with actual people) claiming that they are gay or whatever other LBGTQ+ label they want to use and that there is nothing you can do about it. When confronted with the fact that they are doing exactly what they don't want others doing to them just like people playing the race card they claim that equality can only come through them being privileged due to being a minority and mistreated. They refuse to recognize the bigotry of their own actions and continuously attack indiscriminately anyone who doesn't fit there mold.

      Now I'm going to get a little personal here and say something publicly I've never said anywhere due to my own overwhelming discomfort and fear, but seeing you treated this way has made me angry enough to actually say it just to further what I'm trying to say in my rant. Before that though let me tell you how bad I have seen it online. If you are biologically male and not hitting up every woman you see, hitting up every woman, attracted to women, not gay, not trans, or not asexual, you should be ashamed of your very existence and find someway to fit the perfect mold that is anything but a descent human being. And it goes on with end in the name of self validation and defending themselves. And they have succeeded. I have been ashamed of being male on plenty of occasions, which is fine on it's own since my earliest memories (a set of four particular dreams) I've always yearned to have been female and not male and capable of being a mother. Even today that feeling eats me alive somedays and drives some of my depressive episodes to feeling suicidal but I know the transitional route is not for me, am still attracted to women, and want nothing to do with eth trans community or any other aspect of the LBGTQ+ community or people's of color or even human beings some day because they are all so hateful and bigoted hiding behind their self segregating labels and making me ashamed on a daily basis for just being a human being.

      Frankly, I hate labels. I get for some people, like asexuals, finding the word that describes you can be liberating, but using it to box yourself off and as a weapon against others disgusts me. When ever I see the bigotry and hatred, especially from POC I can help but wonder if anyone ever actually listened to Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have a Dream Speech. He preached the abolishment of labels and segregation and judging everyone for their character and conduct, not the color of their skin, their age, their gender, their religion, their nationality, or any grouping label. He believed in the individual and the worth of the individual both good and bad and that people use him and his words of love and reconciliation as weapons of hatred and segregation fills me with such anger and shame to hate being a member of the human race. So these people demanding their privilege in the name of equality are fools who do not understand the importance of these quotes from MLK

      Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

      Quote

      Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

      So these people attacking you with hatred for trying to bring in love and understanding are the villains, not you. For as long as they perpetrate the crimes they desire to be abolished they will forever be victim to them and until they can open their eyes and recognize their own actions. If they feel they must wallow in the cycle of hatred and will not accept a hand out leave them to themselves and heed not their words beyond threats to your health. They are empty shallow people who only want for themselves and not everyone. Because honestly, as a man of mixed race with a desire to have been born a woman and is attracted to women I sure would like to know where my representation or constant external validation is if it is that important. Honestly, I don't get myself but that is probably because I have wonderful parents who taught me how to respect and validate my self and not worry about what others think of me (shame I know I can't trust them with the personal stuff I've shared here because I am fully aware of their biases as well no matter how kind they can be).

      Anyway, bottom line of that rant is that you're no villain for trying to end hatred by sharing knowledge. The ignorant, selfish, and greedy over entitled jerks attacking you are. My word this has ticked me off and I hope my rant hasn't scared you. You put up with enough nonsense just trying to make it through your day to have to put up with this.

      I'm certainly lacking knowledge of the deeper issues of the subject matter. I just wanted to share some thing that I thought was light hearted. I'm worried at how quick to anger some people are. 

      The retaliation thing was my dumb sense of humour. If I thought for a second that the content would upset a friend, I never would've shared it.

      When people are raised with hatred it unfortunately creates that quickness to anger. The worst part is though is that most people from what I can tell neither realize they are being raised with hatred nor are raising their children with hatred. Those people who are aware typically wear their hatred with pride and gleefully attack those that they hate.

      For the record I don't think you did anything wrong trying to share something positive in response to an out of control situation and then showing other reactions to it. Honestly though it always amazes me how much of a fuss people with darker skin shades make about the Japanese representing them when only about 2 % of the population in Japan are foreigners and most of their fictional characters are designed from a Japanese perspective. I probably shouldn't talk about this subject too much myself either since my skin color invalidates me from being able to talk about it.

      Sorry, I'm really salty about this right now.

      I appreciate it. really though I was trying to help you feel better since to me you're more of the victim in this the villain you feel like you are being made out to be. I never intended to make it about myself but personal experience is the best way to talk about these things with any type of legitimacy.

  3. Hey, you okay, Dan? The lack of an avatar, naming yourself "Nobody," this obviously isn't like you. You said you were made a fool of, and your optimism was seemingly put into question, and it all makes me worry for you.

      I was just trying to give advice. A suggestion based on my observations and what I've been told. But what I got as a reply was "lol."

      That was it. I didn't care about the annoying members chiming in with opinions I didn't give a shit about. What made this hurt the most was that I was talking to a mod.

      I've been coming and going on this forum for 10 years and that was the first time I felt like I didn't belong.

      The update in which this occurred had since been deleted so I can't show what happened...

  4. Apparently they are hinting at a new character? They can't recall his name. lol
  5. I don't mind experimenting with the formula. It's also coming to the Switch but I don't know about the X-Box.
  6. Happy birthday!

  7. Happy birthday Dan! I hope you're enjoying it!

     

    ....You share the same birthday as my sister. What a weird conscience!

  13. The above article quoted is from a different website and author to the one below. Strangely, I've already seen one article complaining about this game (From the "Journalist" who is well known for sucking at playing through the Cuphead tutorial.) and how it depicts woman being killed. A very sad but still very real part of war. The article seems to have made the interest for the game grow.
  14. Probably too late to mention this but, yes. They are called Trophy Girls because they give out the trophies. They do have actual names and although I can't confirm it for myself, "Bandipedia" claims they were named after real people at Naughty Dog/Sony. Megumi - Gives trophy to Neo Cortez, N. Gin & N. Tropy. Liz - Gives trophy to Polar & Pura. Ami - Gives trophy to Tiny, Dingodile, Ripper Roo, Pinstripe, Komodo Joe, Papu Papu, Fake Crash, Penta & N. Oxide. Isabella - Gives trophy to Crash and Coco.
  15. C-Cor...that's some intense and high quality animation. Too graphic for my tastes but I hope it gets the success it deserves if Genndy is at the helm. Their is practically no modern western animations that interest me these days and his name represents a time when they did. Also, maybe all cavemen look the same but I can see a resemblance to the man that discovery fire in a classic Dexter's Laboratory episode.
