You all think it's "funny" to shit on gamers. Now, switch gamer with black people and see if it's still funny. Why is it acceptable to treat gamers poorly? We, too, are an oppressed minority. At school, females and jocks make our lives hell. At home, our parents belittle us to no end. At least black people had friends and family to support them... We have no one and nowhere to turn to. Not even the internet is a safe for us anymore. Do you know why the internet was made? It was so we gamers could have a safe space from you stupid popular assholes who torment us to no end.
Keep laughing if you want, but just know that the future will prove me right. Our suffering will not be in vain, and someday we will be recognized for our struggles against an unjust and uncaring world...
@vriska we live in a society
@animeirl there are black gamers
also, I can't think of any systems that structurally discriminate against gamers, unless maybe you consider gamblers gamers? the US is still recovering from anti-black mortgage policies, still perpetuating anti-black drug policies, and cops here kill black people pretty regularly, including children, and get away with it. Maybe oppression of gamers is closer to, say, oppression of furries? or like, nerds generally?
@dielan my satire meter broke this morning >_> thank you 😅
@torts apparently this post was a joke I was too thick to get, but that's still a good point, abolishing the police would help pretty much everyone
@amsomniac i dont think anyone has actually been killed in swatting but it is pretty insane that you can prank call down a militarized police force on anyone
@torts @amsomniac There's been at least one death, of an uninvolved and unrelated person even: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Wichita_swatting
(The intended victim gave an outdated address to the person who called in the SWATting...)
We love to post!
