The Absolute State of Modern Gaming submitted by tendiesonfloor to gaming

Mechanicalmechanic 0 points 26 points (+26|-0) ago

The perception is "the entire market" but it is just the large producers that saturate the market with advertising that give that appearance. There are plenty of indie games out there that do not suck and do not pander to silly SJWs.

Black Guy Explains Why Blacks Will Lose A Race War submitted by Ex-Redditor to videos

Yup. I thought I hated black people for many years then I met some fantastic black people on St. Lucia, then some from Jamaica. Turns out I just hate the way the inner city thugs behave in the United States. I have a friend who is a gay vegan chef and he is a great person to be around.

4-Year-Old Brings Shell Casing to Preschool. Principal Suspends Him for 7 Days, Calls Child Services. submitted by daskapitalist to news

This is an example of why this next generation of kids will be rebelling by being conservative and more tolerant. Liberals who pride themselves on being "tolerant" are the most intolerant people when it comes to things that used to be "normal". Its ok by them to be a homosexual, change genders, or fuck animals but if you like guns, traditional marriage, and traditional gender roles they hiss at you like an angry cat.

It's ok for a person to be themselves, that goes for both sides of the fence. Liberals don't get that.

No one forces you to have your boy circumcised. If you are circumcised it is because your parents allowed it to happen to you. Go protest your parents. I am circumcised. I wish I was not. My son is not circumcised, he knows no different. Why protest? What is the point? What are they hoping to accomplish? Change the worlds opinion by protesting? How about not having your kid circumcised?

Edit: I am genuinely surprised about the downvoats. I had no idea that people felt so strongly about supporting people who protest. I do not believe in protests. I believe in taking action. Protests are for individuals who want internet fame. Taking action is for people who want to make a difference.

Meh.. I just like to see what people say things. There are many ways to be "alpha."

I have a bit of an inferiority complex, not the kind where I turn into a beta, the kind where I over achieve at everything and develop drinking problems over stupid shit like not getting a promotion. What you just said really highlights my situation in some ways.

I am 6'1''and 155 lbs. I used to be 200 lbs. My wife is 5'5" and 125lbs, but she used to be 250 lbs after kids. We chose to lose weight together, get fit, and not be disgusting fat asses. This was at least 5 years ago. Along our uneventful weight loss "journey" we ran some 5ks, sustained some injuries while training, and overall had a really great time. We also educated ourselves on proper nutrition and noticed how rampant obesity is in our world. Making fun of fatties is a family event now with our kids.

Tying the two previous paragraphs together is looking at the potential men that my wife could leave me for. She is immensely turned off by huge, musclebound gym rats. Not really their bodies so much as their attitude. She does not dig the macho alpha male want to fight everyone personality that is often associated with those body types. Luckily that is only maybe 20% of the available men. The rest are all disgustingly fat, total no go. The end result is, due to obesity the standards for a skinny guy are really low. I simply eat proper calories for my weight and do 30 minutes of cardio per day.

As much as I hate obesity, I have a secret desire to not eliminate it because it makes it easy for average looking guys to be significantly more attractive.

Edit: I should add that my rational brain knows that my wife is attracted to far more qualities in me than just not being fat. My rational brain knows there is nearly 0 potential for my wife to leave me, we are best buddies in every sense. My inferiority complex requires me to do a certain amount of risk assessment and risk management to properly examine my position in any situation. If my wife knew I thought this I think she would cry knowing that I have that kind of mental anguish going on.
