Still really angry about Elekk getting DDOS'd. Please find something better to do than harassing a tired trans woman and a bunch of sad queer and neurodivergent people.

I feel like the whole "poison ivy is a bad guy because she is too extreme in her need to save the earth" aged poorly .

K K Cruisin’ has been my favorite K K Slider track since the first time I heard him play it, standing in front of my tiny crt tv in my sophomore dorm room on a Saturday night. I only hope that we're making that video game hipster dog proud

Everything we've accepted as the only way to do RPG combat comes from boring, slow games about ships firing cannons at each other.

reminder that nonbinary folks don’t owe you white skinny androgyny.

nonbinary folks can be femme, masc, fat, curvy, disabled, brown or black and they are no less nonbinary than the white skinny androgynous models you see presented as the face of enbies.

if you only follow skinny white androgynous enbies or see them as the standard, i recommend taking a hard look at whose voices and experiences you’re not seeing.

Y’all I don’t even care, I’ve never been in a relationship with someone at the same time as a new before, so we are going to take the opportunity to be CUTE

re: (thread) Everyone should learn the Four Rules of gun safety 

Rule 4: Know your target, and what lies beyond it.

Don't fucking shoot something unless you're certain of what it is.

In addition to that that, know what'll happen if you miss the target, or the bullet continues traveling after passing through the target.

At gun ranges, the end of the range is generally a large berm of some kind. This can stop bullets safely.

If you have to fire a weapon defensively, will you hurt or kill someone standing behind the target? Think about this. And note, bullets can generally pass through residential walls.

re: (thread) Everyone should learn the Four Rules of gun safety 

Rule 3: Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are prepared to fire.

"Prepared to fire" means "are aimed at a specific target and have decided you are going to shoot it."

Unless you are actually firing, your index finger should be held straight and resting on the side of the frame, off of and above the trigger. If you are handling weapons, this needs to be automatic and reflexive. If you are firing and decide to stop firing, the first thing that happens should be removing your finger from the trigger.

If you see someone in a movie or TV running around with their finger on the trigger, they're fucking up.

Rule 2: Always keep the weapon pointed in a safe direction. Never aim at anything you don't intend to destroy.

This should be pretty self-explanatory.

An imaginary line emanating from the barrel of a gun shouldn't pass over anything or anyone you care about. For example, at a gun range, all guns should stay pointed downrange.

Aiming at someone is a violent act. Yes, even if you think the gun is unloaded (and see rule 1). In my jurisdiction (Washington state, US), it's also a criminal act.

Rule 1: treat all guns like they're loaded

Never assume that a gun is unloaded. If someone says "don't worry it's not loaded", never believe them.

Guns may still have a round chambered even if the magazine is removed.

The only time you can treat a gun as unloaded is if you personally have confirmed that it's unloaded (and you know how to with that kind of weapon), and it hasn't left your immediate and direct control. It 's a good idea to re-check anyway. If someone hands you a gun, the first thing you do is check -- and if this is a thing you're going to be doing regularly, that should be a reflexive habit.

Note that the other rules still apply even if you have directly confirmed.

(thread) Everyone should learn the Four Rules of gun safety 

Guns are a thing that exist in the world, doubly so in the US. Regardless of your political opinion about them, it's a good idea to know how to interact with guns safely should the need arise. Even if you never want to be near 'em, this knowledge can only help you.

There's four universal rules that can prevent the vast majority of unintentional gun injuries and deaths. They're not complicated. The exact phrasing varies a bit but the message is always the same.

Super busy today playing catch-up after being sick for literally all of last week, but I heard my favorite Oasis single at lunch (Don’t Go Away), and I found one of my favorite Serbian snacks (Munchmallow), and I keep knocking things off my todo list, so I’m going to say today is a successful birthday so far

If you say something in public then I have every right to interact. That's why I sat down at your restaurant booth, you were clearly talking at a volume that made your expectations of privacy ridiculous. I see you're trying to flag down the manager— I'll have you know that you don't understand how social interactions work hey let go of me

apparently april is autism month so, to summarize: Autism Speaks is still a hate group; listen to #ActuallyAutistic people instead cuz we know our own needs best.

the symbolism behind the puzzle piece is insulting, it represents the idea that we're broken or there's a piece missing from us, so don't use it. look up the rainbow infinity symbol instead.

FFX 

I get that it totally broke the game, but from a narrative standpoint, being able to just obliterate anything in my path with Yojimbo really sold me on the idea that Yuna was the right person to stop Sin.

Like, these people with their dark Aeons and absurd pools of hp and power keep showing up and demanding that she waste her time dealing with them, and the game gives you the option to allow yourself to experience how strong they are while also saying “but you’re the one who’s been chosen”
