Today In Why Do People Gotta Be Such Racist Douches

I belong to a Pokemon Go Discord that organizes gym raids. We have about 600 members and they’re uniformly the sweetest, most innocuous people I’ve ever met. I literally have not seen *one* argument the whole time I’ve been raiding with them, and if you imagine 600 random people from tumblr getting together, you’ll see what an accomplishment that is.

So pokemon gyms are supposed to all be on public land, which apparently Niantic considers churches to be. So we end up with a little circle of 3-15 people chatting and poking our cell phones for 15 minutes or so in church parking lots a lot.

And today, two members reported having the cops called on their raids for standing quietly in a parking lot poking their phones. Guess whether the two people were white or not. JUST GUESS. One of them says he’s not gonna do raids at churches anymore, and it makes me so angry. Because of course he isn’t, because Pokemon Go isnt worth possibly being shot by the cops.

And okay, I can see maybe some churches aren’t thrilled with having people hang out in their parking lot for 15 minutes poking their phones, maybe they think it’s disrespectful, although tbh I dont see why. But even given that, you’re a fucking church, turn the other goddamn cheek like Christ fucking told you to and dont do something that might end up getting an innocent person SHOT.

(Edited to add: we’ve done i would guess thousands of raids between us. This has never happened to an all white raiding group. I’ve been on one raid where some church people came out and asked nicely what we were doing and we explained, and said we’d be done shortly, and they said fine, and that was that. Otherwise never even had anyone look at us funny)

Just a reminder that I’m an Adult™ and if that makes you feel uncomfortable feel free to:

  • unfollow me
  • ask me to unfollow you
  • block me

I won’t get mad or anything. It’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and secure.

As a writer, you should try to give your villains plausible motivations, backstories, etc. A villain is much more interesting if they think they’re the hero of their own story.

As a DM, this is still great advice in theory but in practice you should ABSOLUTELY NEVER DO THIS because your players will discover your villains’ tragic backstory, look at their motivation and find it sound, and end up adopting the villains, going rogue from the Celestial Intervention Agency to avenge the wrongs done said villains and ensure their freedom, accidentally kidnapping the President, and plunging Gallifrey into a civil war.

Tony and Peter sharing the same sentiment on why they do what they do, they both blame themselves for not doing enough, and feel the responsibility to do more and better, to protect the people and the world they love and care about

I think baby boomers’ tendency to get very mad at slow service goes hand in hand with their dislike of smart phones. Every situation I’ve been in where service is slow? I just whip out my phone and browse apps for the extra 30 seconds. It’s not a big deal. Meanwhile Landline Howard behind me in line who’s never held a smartphone in his life is bored with nothing to occupy his time so he yells at minimum wage workers instead.

Its really sucks you know,
being the person who always gives too much. the one friend who deals with everyone’s issues no matter the time or day, the girl who will stand by her friends and hold her ground for them.

And then to turn around and feel absolutely no support, to be surrounded by people who take everything from you and offer nothing in return.

I am through being used by fake friends who will throw you under a bus to better themselves the moment they have the chance.
