    October feels like the home sweet home of all the months. The moment the calendar reaches October 1st I get this warm and cozy feeling that lasts for 31 glorious days. I absolutely love it.

    "I loved you, always.”

    going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.

    This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.

    i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.

    holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings. 

    What’s the game??

    you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying

    So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.

    This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.

    Not just a gendered insult, either. The nameless voice that directs the player’s actions is supposed to be a hateful, abusive monster, and when the game’s designers asked themselves “okay, what’s the most degrading, dehumanising thing this voice could possibly do to the player?”, the answer they came up with was “deliberately misgender them”.

    Played it both ways — one where I implicitly obeyed everything and the other where I defied wherever I could.

    Both endings are abrupt and without any sort of contextual resolution. When you obey, you’re praised and you’re given a clear landscape and what appears to be a coin (so a reward), but with the clear knowledge everything is at the behest of the voice, who is so very pleased to own you. When you play the game defyingly, the voice that smugly tells you that it will make you beg ends up being the one that begs at the end. “Why do you hate me? I loved you.” “Where will you go? Will you stay close?” You’re given the choice between going and staying. If you choose to go, you’re given an unending corridor to walk through filled with the colorful glitchy distortion obscuring everything. It ends as you walk down it.

    On one hand, you’re given the world you know, with all your needs met, but none of the will. On the other hand, you’re given a world of opportunity that’s entirely yours but it’s undefined, unknown, and unending.

    It’s definitely an emotional experience.

    Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

    In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

    Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

    THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN

    fun fact: you don’t cure depression by telling me i have nothing to be sad about

    another fun fact: you dont cure anxiety by just getting up and doing whatever it is that makes you anxious

    Discworld

    I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

    Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.

    I keep saying it, and I’m gonna KEEP saying it

    READ. DISCWORLD.

    GESTURES WILDLY

    This is one of my favorite exchanges in all of Pratchett’s works, and that’s saying something.

    Seriously. Read Discworld.

    Here’s a test:

    I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.

    I’m going to drop one. You chose which.

    If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.

    Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.

    Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

    Now admit it

    woah.

    I think people don’t understand how frustrating and hurtful it can be when they say “I know how that feels”.

    No, you don’t.

    Please don’t invalidate my months of suffering, pain and disbelief because you’re tired due to a common cold. It is not the same.
