Today's mood is:
Playing #Subahibi while eating beef jerky.
When said in good faith, what those words actually mean is more akin to:
"People of different backgrounds than yourself will probably have different stances on certain issues based off of their own experiences. Rather than immediately writing them off, you should hear them out and try to understand how their circumstances have shaped their opinions."
Which is actually pretty important to do as it gives you further insight into the topic as a whole.
I really think it says a lot about the direction of humanity in general that whenever someone says "Hey, it's actually good to listen to people with different opinions from your own so you can avoid locking yourself in an echo chamber where you never have to examine your beliefs or your actions," what most people immediately hear is "We should let the Nazis speak."
Because while it's true that they've used this argument, that is not what that is supposed to mean.
Since #AceAttorney is getting attention again, I'm replaying the series and either I got way better at video games since last time I played or these games are a lot shorter than I remembered.
I'm not going to hold my breath for it or anything, but I really hope that they make all clothes and hair styles available for all genders in Pokemon Sword & Shield
If you can crossdress in Animal Crossing, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to in Pokemon.
Someone said that "Well, Pokemon is more popular so it'd be more controversial." Yeah. That means the only reason they're not doing it because they're cowards. Next.
And yeah, this is kind of about GOT, but it's also just general writing advice.
If you write a story where plot elements are pulled out of your ass rather than foreshadowed and characters completely disregard their development and character arcs for the sake of the plot?
What you've done is you've written a bad story.
