“People should just toughen up” ... that’s your ultimate solution to online harassement ? Psychotherapists must hate you, you are gonna put them out of job with that advice. No really, just write a book about that or something, you are gonna make millions. I’m sure people crippled by anxiety and mental disorders are gonna love that.
More seriously, it’s like exactly the kind of thing an harraser would say to defend himself if someone calls him out. Really not saying you are one but you sure do talk like one.
“toughen up”, “ it makes you look irrational and hysterical”, “ someone as weak and pathetic as you are “. Yep...I saw that kind of talk elsewhere...
I was never gatekept
I was a girl who wanted in on comics, video games and tabletop. In the 90s/00′s, where supposedly women were ‘gatekept’ out of the hobbies.
I was never gatekept. Not once. Not IRL, not online.
If anyone tried to talk shit about me being a woman, I’d put them in their place by citing trivia, showing them my work, beating them in the game, etc. I integrated into the culture instead of complaining about it because I wanted to be part of that culture.
Nerds don’t give a fuck about gatekeeping if you accept the culture and prove you’re earnest about being involved in the hobby. Nerds in this period were always meritocratic, they wanted to test your nerdiness to prove you belonged there and nothing else.
Finally watched Star Wars VIII
It was pretty good.
It wasn’t a masterpiece, no.
I…Really don’t get why people disliked it. Maybe it’s bc of Rey, because she’s a bit of a brat ?
But it was the same with Luke when he started too, so uh ?
The casino part was a bit meh, I’d agree with that.
But so much to dislike the movie ? I don’t really get it.
I don’t get how you’d dislike the moment when Holdo use the rebel ship as a batting ram with light speed ? Most beautiful shot of the movie in my pov.
You’re alone in a big ass ship waiting for death ? Might as well do something with it .
I mean personally I was waiting for her to shield them, but no, she does the next fucking smart thing you could do, alone in an empty big ass ship. She gets one hell of a bad ass death while doing one of the top ten most ball sacked moves in History.
Attack is the best defense and fuck did the woman deliver.
Also Luke’s last moments are fucking tight as fuck. The sun going down is a nice fucking wink for his first apparition omg the fucking FEELS, I’m still not dealing with that even when I was spoiled this would happen.
Even the last shot of the movie is beautiful and heavy of sense. Kid with a broom looking at the sky, just after hearing about the legendary Luke Skywalker’s tale from his bro.
He starts unconsciously to wield his broom like a laser saber. Like some of us did as kids, when hearing, ourselves, tales about Luke.
Fucking sense of nostalgia right there.
So not a masterpiece, but far from stupid.
Actually, I read some weeks ago a message on one of the Kinja sites. The topic was approx. the same and the message was from someone who knew he was paid more than his coworkers and argued that this is normal as he thought he was working better and more than them. If they asked the same salary, he would ask a raise to maintain the gap or leave his job.
So there are people who really think that their coworkers deserve less than them and they are perfectly fine with being jerks. It is more important to them to make more money than to help coworker be better at their job.
Watch: It’s your right to share your salary, not doing so could be holding you back.
