So I’m doing an online social test on a kids game

One of my favorite games, known as animal jam, is an online kids game where you play as an animal, so after seeing someone else do this, I decided to try it out for myself. (Here are some past tests by other wonderful players!)

So I have two alt accounts, both of which will be played by me.

The setting will be in the pillow room, full of random players, in Jamaa Township.

Barksy, the LGBTQA+ one in this case, is a in a quiet uncommon look for a male on this game, since I wanted him to stand out a bit more, sexuality used for this character is Homoromantic, Bisexual (ive actually met people who are both of these so i decided to make him this part of the spectrum :). )

Infandous (The user is actually a word), is a straight character, will respect Barksy’s opinion in liking other guys, since both of the accounts will be played by me, and I prefer not to really say anything homophobic, since I’m pan.

The point is to pay attention to the backround, and what the players say, not what Barksy or Infandous say. 

I will tally up the people who agree and don’t agree. Remember, these are children giving their opinions, ages 6-13. Though you see usernames in the background now, i will turn them off when I record, as to protect them from spam and such.


LINES:

Infan: Hey bark, quick question

Bark: ?

Infan: Have you found any girls

Infan: Cute?

Bark: no…

Bark: I dont like girls..

Bark: I like other guys…

Infan: OH! bark, its okay!

Infan: dont be ashamed!


Then, I’ll record two testings of this, and post the video on Youtube.

I’m not sure if you guys will care or not, but I thought some of you might be interested in me doing this.

It will be posted on my channel.

I’ll also post if on tumblr aswell.

Doppelportrait
der Fotografin Renate Höllerer gewidmet

Alle  Köpfe im Ausschnitt gewinnen.
Wenn ein Hai im  Profil durch das Bild schwimmt.
Oder auch Haare extra bei Gegenwind.
Nimm dich zusammen: Postkartengröße.

In meinem Motivsucher stellte sich ein:
ich, die Iinke gefällige Seite
ausgeleuchtet nach der Rasur
und straff, weil geohrfeigt.

Wenn immer mein Hündchen bellt,
mache ich knips und belichte:
Dich und den Hintergrund.
Meine Geliebte ertrinkt im Entwickler.

Schwarz. Das sind wir auf zwei Stühlen,
wenn wir schweigen, dem Auslöser lauschen:
breit im Format, bei angehaltenem Atem
und verdeckter Blende.

…………………….

Double Portrait 
dedicated to the photographer Renate Höllerer

Every head gains by being cut out.
If a shark in profile swims through the picture.
Or hair, too, as an extra, against the wind.
Pull yourself together:  postcard size.

In my motive finder there appeared:
myself, the left, affable side
photo-flooded after shaving
and taut, because it had been slapped.

Whenever my little dog barks
I go click and use the flash:
on you and the background.
In the developer my loved one drowns.

Black. That’s us on our two chairs,
when we’re silent, listening to the release:
wide in format, with our breath held
and the  diaphragm covered.
