The Last Picture - a choose your own adventure

By now the MS Paint Adventures model should be familiar: You post what you'd like to happen next in the form of a command, and I draw the next picture based on the most interesting/timely/funny input/s. Unlike that scamp Andrew Hussie I don't have a plan for the story, but only a setup, a ruleset an...

Re: The Dream Thread

So I'm hunting mushrooms in the forest outside town, at night, with a rifle. It sounds like a surreal joke, but I shoot two mushrooms larger than my fist and walk through town with the rifle on my back just to feel like a big guy which is a lot more surreal to me. I've never even touched a gun in re...

While i really don't like the race analogi, it does provide in this case: I'm pretty sure that the blacks felt Race was an unequivical evil as well, but as we push the racists further and further out into the fringes, race can now instead be used for good, by giving people a way to talk about verta...

Re: Let's Chat About Gender and How Biological Sex Isn't Rea

Oh, I think I see what you mean. You can talk about your genitals by literally talking about your genitals. Like, you can say "Alice has a penis" or "Bob has a vagina" or something like that, without using words like "male" or "female." If you're male (the ge...

Re: Let's Chat About Gender and How Biological Sex Isn't Rea

Like, you can talk about genitals by just talking about genitals, there's no need to tie that to "sex" or anything used as a cudgel against trans, intersex, and NB folx. Yeah, I'm trying to figure out how to do that. The question should have been, how do you classify genitals without reso...

Re: Let's Chat About Gender and How Biological Sex Isn't Rea

Well, I'm all for eliminating sexes as a divisive factor between people. I don't think it should matter, for any given interaction with a person. (It might matter in some specific circumstances like if you're going to make babies, but mostly no.) I don't think it's some innate quality of your body, ...

So much fun. Didn't realize how much I've missed the Commodore Hustlegang. The video was like a visit from an old friend. Not a nice friend, but funny.

Re: IDDQ Social awareness and privilage discussion

Of course, our prejudices also tell us having it easy means you deserve to be punished. That may be why a lot of people balk at the idea. Failing doesn't make you a bad person. Struggling doesn't make you a bad person. Struggling with a thing that someone else finds easier doesn't make you a worse p...

When will I learn to never offer several points for bigots to debate? That'll only let them ignore the point where they contradict themselves, and if they get the chance they'll always, always ignore it.

Re: Feminism general thread

Breasts aren't sexual, as a matter of simple definition. They can be sexualized in the observer's perception, but the things that can be sexual are, I'm pretty sure, actions, language, and sexual organs. We're probably confusing breasts with sexual organs because they're so often fetishized and made...
