Old Kid: FightinCowboy RewTIN Cefoy @Fightincowboy So lately there's been a lot of fuss over gaming "forcing diversity" and people getting upset that a character is gay, trans, etc. and I want to take a moment and try to explain this to folks that are having trouble understanding the issue, as a straight white dude myself. 3:13 AM 10 Feb 19 from Nashville, TN Twitter for Android 48 Retweets 243 Likes FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h As a straight white dude my whole life has been filled with cool white dudes in gaming and comics. Iron Man, He-Man, Spiderman, Cloud, you get the idea. There's literally a million different choices you could pick from and think "oh I want to be like them, I can ANTIN Cooy relate to them". ti 3 92 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And now we're seeing more women, more people of color, more people of varying sexual orientations, and dudes are asking "Why does my character have to be gay?", "I like this character but why do I have to play as a black girl? ANTIN CofoBoy 9 1 ti 3 91 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And to be honest, y'all been playing as the "straight white dude for so long you're treating that as the default setting in life. But that's not true. The world isn't made of RNTIN CopOBoY nothing but straight white dudes. There's billions of different people out there. 1 ti 6 112 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And you'll say well why does my character have to be gay, it doesn't matter to the gameplay" and you're right, it doesn't, so why the fuck do you care? Playing as a gay character doesn't mean cocks start para- dropping into your room to assault you ANTIN cofeo 3 ti 12 129 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h But to that 13 yr old kid that's gay and still in the closet, he suddenly has a role model. He has someone he can relate to the same way you looked up to Tony Stark or Mario or whoever. That little black girl who was too shy of gaming has a character she sees herself in AANTIN Cojso 9 1 t 10 150 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h The point is while it might not impact the gameplay AT ALL, it's not hurting you and it's potentially helping someone else. And if you still disagree with that, then the real problem is just that you're an asshole. AeNTIN Cofeso 21 ti 13 242

Pokemonomg-humor.tumblr.com: captainsnoop: I always thought it was funny that your player character in Pokemon is 10 years old. Like, yeah, they're "anime ten" where they look at least 18 yadda yadda, but they're still ten. Imagine the people in the Pokemon League. These are fully grown adults, right? They've trained their entire lives to be the best trainers in their country. They're the best of the best. . And then a ten year old walks in. A s in. high and mighty four foot tall ten year old with a big smile on their face walks in. They've never even seen a tity. They don't know where babies come from. They're ten. How did this ten year old get in to your arena? Did they wander in here by mistake? They say they're here to battle you. Aww, how cute. This kid wants to fight the big league trainers, so they snuck in to fight you. That's cute and funny. You'll tell the others about this next lunch break. You decide to humor the kid and accept their challenge. You toss out your level 50 Tyranitar. You and this Pokemon have spent decades together, you trained for ages to get it to Level 50. You're the best trainer in the country. The kid reaches on their belt and tosses a Master Ball. Wait, what? A Master Ball? How did that kid get a Master Ball? Out of the master ball pops... God. God popped out of the Master Ball. The very same God Pokemon that controls the flow of space, that you go to church and pray to every Sunday. This ten year old kid just pulled out a Master Ball and threw God at you. God is, in fact, Level 73. God shoots Hyper Beam at your life- long partner Tyranitar, causing it to evaporate in to dust. He's fainted in one hit. The kid yawns. The kid wipes your entire party of Pokemon, the Pokemon you spent most of your adult life training and caring for. You are stunned. You ask the trainer how long they've been doing this. They say "I started a couple of days ago." This kid is ten. Pokemonomg-humor.tumblr.com
