  • I hate the fact that I can't get players for 1e nWoD/CofD. Everyone's all crazy about 2e CofD, and I don't like the changes 2e made, both mechanically speaking and in terms of setting changes.

    Even a small group or 1-on-1 game of 1e Requiem would be nice for me. I would use setting hacks though, as I always do.

    • I hate when artists make a buck of presenting a trans-friendly public image but are actually TERF shitheads who accuse trans women of being rapists.

      Female pronouns for me, please.

      • Sorry to hear that, but if it makes you feel better, I find that TERF's and other extremists piss me off and I'm sorry about the artist in question being a total dickhead. I don't know the exact details of what's going on, but I do feel bad for all the shit trans women get from both the TERF's and the Far Right. Admittedly, I am not trans and am not an expert on the matter, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have any sympathy for the trans community and the stuff they go through. As a member of the LGBT community myself, I do support the rights of trans individuals, both trans men and women. Even if I am cis myself.

        Human decency is human decency regardless of gender identity.

        I just don't like extremism of any kind, I'm more a center-left kind of guy politically speaking.

        • Gonna vent a little because it helps. Sorry if this feels awkward

          My family knows I want to go see a therapist. They're aware things are not ok, but they have no idea how bad they really are because I don't talk to them about it since I don't want them to get worried/mad. It's more serious than what they think, stuff that caused me nasty episodes and led me to some dark places. Can't even imagine how painful it would be for them if I told them how a mess the things are. I know what I have, because it's blatant and the professionals I spoke with confirmed my doubts.

          The issue is money in the family is tight and, every time I'm about to tell them I really need to speak with a therapist, something happens. My sister breaks the car (not blaming her) and it costs money to repair it. My father breaks his foot and is forced to stay home for a month. Taxes take out more than expected because laws. So I look at that, look at them, and tell myself to suck it up and keep pretending all is manageable. But it's been years and it's like trying to fix a hole in a dam with my bare hands. Recently I've been feeling it coming back and I don't know what to do. I feel stuck, I hate lying to them but can't imagine doing otherwise and I can only blame myself for that.

          So yeah, I hate that

          • a bunch of white dudes just walked past my front window doing nazi salutes. not sure if that was directed at me specifically (i'm a non-passing mixed race trans woman, so it's possible) but still holy shit.

            I'm always amazed by the level of cognitive dissonance on display when a TERF claims to support trans people when a little digging into their beliefs reveals an incredibly vile hatred. not to mention TWERFs who embrace trans men.

            Cinder Are you in the US? Many community-focused mental health clinics will offer a sliding scale for rates. sorry if that's not helpful. I know how it feels to struggle with mental health stuff.

              Not in the US, unfortunately. Don't worry, the thought and consideration do count and are much appreciated. Thanks!

              • Just found out one of my younger cousins was at the protests in Charlottesville and not with the counter-protesters. He said he was going on a vacation, but then his family saw him in pictures on the news standing with the fucking neo-Nazi's holding one of those stupid tiki torches. Also, he's half-Hispanic so I don't know what the fuck is going through his head. He hasn't been answering anyone's calls, his dad said if he ever sees my cousin again he's going to shoot him, and his mom is a total wreck.

                  It was Charlottesville, not Charleston. I know, my brother was there with the Antifa and he got his nose bloodied in a brawl. Which brings me to my next point.

                  I hate the fact that a bunch of Alt-Right Nazis and Antifa Communists got into a brawl in MY home state, just a few hours drive from where I live, and because of their idiocy and fanaticism, got an innocent woman killed and dozens more injured.

                  I'm weird in that I despise all extremists, and I hate both the Nazi Alt-Right and the Communist Antifa (before anyone jumps my ass, I hate the Alt-Righters more). I support free speech (which is why I don't like Antifa violence), but the Nazis came to Charlottesville trying to goad people into a fight and Antifa was stupid enough to take the bait and as a result, three people died and twenty-four were seriously injured. My brother only sustained minor injuries, but that still irks me that he was even there in the first place.

                  I'm all for protesting these hatemonger Nazi fucks who came to my state and hurt my brother (and got an innocent woman killed), but violence should only be used as an absolute last resort (if used at all).

                  The problem is that all of the Alt-Right and some of the Antifa are both despicable and violent thugs and troublemakers who cling to antiquated and horrendous ideologies and as a result, innocent civilians get hurt.

                  Fascism, Nazism, and Communism are all disgusting ideologies that belong firmly in the dustbin of history.

                    I really appreciate you condemning both sides in this; the people who were murdered are absolutely as vile as the killers.

                    Oh wait, that's not how it works at all.

                    Also, Communism isn't disgusting, and the vast majority of antifa I know aren't Communists, they're socialists or anarchists.

                      Read my post. I said I hate the Nazis MORE than the Antifa. I'm condemning violence and I do agree that the Nazis are worse. I am a socialist myself. I never said the victims were worse than the killers. The Nazis are the guiltier party in this, that's obvious. But violence is not the answer.

                      I'm really upset my brother got hurt (hence why I'm mad at Antifa, which he was part of) and that the Nazis killed someone, okay. Forgive me if I'm on edge for something happening so close to home for me. This whole thing has me deeply upset and worried.

                      As for Communism, why don't we agree to disagree on that and just agree that Nazism and Fascism are disgusting at least.

                      Like I said, let's protest the Nazis. But do it peacefully. Violence only begets violence. I may love trenchcoats and katanas in my WoD games, but I'm a pacifist in real life.

                      • I hate to double-post, but I'd like to make something clear. I'm all for peaceful Antifa and I hate Nazis and Alt-Right types. I just don't like violence. I'm a pacifist and a center-left socialist.

                        If anyone is offended by my statements regarding Charlottesville, I do apologize sincerely. I'm just really upset that my brother got hurt (thank God it was only a broken nose), and I have a lot of complicated feelings about this.

                        • Never, in the history of Nazism, has nonviolent protest done anything to stop them.

                          Like, I'm strongly anti-violence. I firmly believe it's an extreme measure that should only be resorted to in extreme circumstances. Nazis rallying is an extreme circumstance.

                          EDIT: Camilla, I'm sorry your brother got hurt. I'm sorry when anyone who puts their own safety on the line for the sake of others gets hurt. It is, unfortunately, a risk one must accept if one intends to stand up to violence.

                            I understand, and I sent you a PM on the issue. I suppose you are right that Nazis rallying is an extreme measure, I'm just really upset about this and worried about my brother getting hurt again.

                            • I think the only good point of the whole affair was that the white supremacist protesters were from all over the US. Charlottesville was an industrial center of the Confederacy, they fought against desegregation, and for a long time didn't allow African Americans to have their own churches. But still to get a white supremacy protest going the alt-righters had to pull from so many other states, while the city seemed to for the most part reject them.

                              It may seem like a lot of people but they're scattered and disparate, and just by the reaction to this it does look like when it comes down to actual Neo-Nazis and Hitler-loving racists, the majority of America is willing to tell them to fuck off.
