So, how old were you when you got your first NES? I was 5. We had a Vic 20 and an Atari 2600 before that, though. Hey, do you remember the actual full titles of Ultima: Exodus and Ultima: Avatar, before they were ported to the NES? You know that war never changes, but did you ever actually play the original Fallout games?
Do you remember how awesome and world-changing Wolfenstein 3D was? How about 3Demon? Did you ever go searching for the amulet of Yendor? Or test yourself in the proving grounds of the Mad Overlord?
Hey, do you remember the first time you heard the famous Zelda title music in glorious 16 bit sound after only hearing it in 8? It was like there was a tiny orchestra hiding in your TV… oh, and remember when Mario Paint came out and it had the song composer, and Nintendo Power printed a little insert that told you how to write the video game theme songs and you couldn’t wait to do the Zelda song, but then it only had enough bars to do the opening and then it just stopped abruptly?
Do you remember when Warcraft wasn’t a world?
Do you remember inserting discs 2 through 13 to install a game, and having to stop and switch them in the middle of play?
Do you remember being excited to get a hard drive that could hold 20 megabytes because you could finally load your new game?
Did you ever work out how to kill Lord British?
Oh, you don’t remember any of that?
I thought you said you were a gamer.
Anyway, what’s the point of this exercise? Isn’t your blog a bunch of moody poetry about how you’re a nice guy who can’t meet girls? Well, what part of this macho nerd posturing do you think is nice and part of it do you think is going to endear you to women?
If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.
If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.
If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.
If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.
If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.
Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.
Fucking victim-blamers, but this post… man.
Or, in gif form:
A man doesn’t have to be manly. But as for being Gentlemanly, that’s a whole other story.
