how do i deal with having a popular sister?
  • Hell yeah this comment rocks! A therapist might be able to provide the tools to talk with their sister as well. She’s busy with her own life and might not realize how OP feels.

    My tip would be to check out wherever the nerds are before school, that’s where I found my friends after I moved.
    Good luck OP!

  • D&D Co-Creator Gary Gygax was Sexist. Talking about it is Key to Preserving His Legacy.
  • Here’s the full quote for extra context:

    I have been accused of being a nasty old sexist-male-Chauvinist-pig, for the wording in D&D isn’t what it should be. There should be more emphasis on the female role, more non-gendered names, and so forth. I thought perhaps these folks were right and considered adding women in the ‘Raping and Pillaging’ section, in the ‘Whores and Tavern Wenches’ chapter, the special magical part dealing with ‘Hags and Crones’, and thought perhaps of adding an appendix on ‘Medieval Harems, Slave Girls, and Going Viking’. Damn right I am sexist. It doesn’t matter to me if women get paid as much as men, get jobs traditionally male, and shower in the men’s locker room. They can jolly well stay away from wargaming in droves for all I care. I’ve seen many a good wargame and wargamer spoiled thanks to the fair sex. I’ll detail that if anyone wishes.

    just saying

  • yikes rule
  • How to make a month go by as fast as possible other than sleeping
  • Have you tried video games? Expeditions is a Spintires game, so you’re driving trucks around a map to do quests. Tedious in a fun way, it’d definitely kill a month. Looks like the cheapest way to play is Switch or Steam Deck (during the summer sale) if you don’t already have a console

  • The disturbing online misogyny of Gamergate has returned – if it ever went away
  • If you do want to learn more, Innuendo Studios did a 6 part series called Why Are You So Angry? that’s pretty short (most episodes are ~10 minutes) but goes into the details

    Edit: part 4 (An Autopsy of Gamergate, 18min) is probably the best summary, but the entire series is worth a watch if you have the time
