If you're really getting all worked up over that one single post... I really don't know what to tell you. If that is all you're basing your idea of my toxicity on then I'm sorry but youre just throwing around baseless accusations as much as I (somewhat jokingly) was earlier.

You definitely need to calm down. What I said there is literally no different than a youtube comment saying "this amount of people who disliked the video all have bad taste". I sincerely hope you don't get all worked up about that, too.

And, unfortunately, when you do link the impact of a character on deiscrimination and racism or bigotry in general, you might wonder whether it was ever okay to have the character in the first place. It would still make a call out on Apu and the Simpsons as a whole as a general bad influence on culture.

And even at a personal level, if you enjoyed the Simpsons with its bigotted carricatures on itself, does that make you a bigot yourself?

I think there is a lot of knee-jerk reaction to something that could be interpreted on a gut-level as seemingly implying "you are a bad person" even vaguely, even if all it's saying is "please be aware of your prejudices". From there, people look for ways of justifying that knee-jerk interpretation, and make mountains out of molehills.

I mean, the most frustrating part of this Brain Dump vid for me, is where Max comes right out and says the point that the movie is making is "If you like Apu, you're racist, that's the only explanation", when in the documentary itself kind of explicitly states the opposite!



No, a moral framework wasn't even implied in the documentary at all.

That's really just a matter of sensitivity of the audience.

In fact, most of the time, when the subject of the impact that caricatures of stereotypes or whatever are discussed, especially in an academic setting, or in the form of an appeal to others to be conscious of them they're not usually presenting it in a moral framework, but in the framework of problem-solution framework.

Also, prejudice and bigotry are not the same thing. Prejudice is literally making judgements with insufficient information, bigotry is an intolerance for others of specific groups.

I don't think the caricatures in the Simpsons are ultimately bigoted, but they are certainly written by people for others who would get the joke. Hence why Apu was the problem, because really, only people in New York or the West Coast (where the simpsons is written) would have really understood what stereotypes were being caricatured, so for others who wouldn't get it, their attempts to try and understand what is an exaggeration and what is an ironic reversal of reality would be how they form their own understanding of the culture that Apu is from (which actually is unspecific as India actually consist of a ton of cultures of which Apu is really an amalgamation)

Cheeky question time.

Suppose you have an ex and suppose you went all the way with him/her.
Suppose you are on friendly terms.
Would you mind being naked around him/her?
You may tone down to underwear/swimming wear if you want.

You could work from the position that it's not a big deal as he/she has seen you naked before anyways.
Or you keep the sanctity of visual intimicy to only your current SO.

It's simple to say, but hard to do. Be true to yourselves, that should be simple right? But then we go to school, and suddenly who we are changes to be quiet, to not draw attention, or we go along with a cruel joke because we don't wish to be the focus of the attention. At work, we don't want to draw the attention of the boss, cause we don't want to lose our jobs, even though it makes us feel like we are slowly dying by hiding who we are.

but that's just it, hiding our real selves causes a slow death of our sense of joy, happiness, and feeling of confidence in ourselves. and as such, we just do our best to survive in the rat race, only thinking of what we can get our hands on, and how to keep it from those who should try and take it, and how we don't want to be the nail that sticks out and gets hammered down

but we are not here to just merely survive! survival is for when we are out in the wilderness, and we need to hunt and find shelter! instead we are sitting in front of our computers, on the bus with our phones, in class with our tablets! we have connection to the knowledge of humanity, and to billions of people from vastly different walks of life! our ability to find connection and to delve the deepest and most complex parts of ourselves is the greatest that we have ever had in the history of mankind.

So find ways to be yourself!

Find people that accept and celebrate your true you!

Study and discover things that enrich your mind and heart!

and be the one to stand uniquely in the sea of the normal, like a beautiful island of you!

Yes, I suppose I can see that in Tom.

Really this entire batch of small indie games during October was tons of fun. Still considering doing that as a weekly thing. Find some fun-looking small indie thing on Itch or Gamejolt and play that.


Sounds like it would be a blast!


I also kinda wanna go through this whole October shindig and make a "best moments" compilation. I actually finally feel like I did a decent job commenting as I played.

So I heard that the remake of "It" was actually a good horror movie and super scary and I wanna know what idiot reviewers actually thought that.

The movie is a boring mess of 80s nostalgia and Pennywise is a discount dollar store version of Freddy Krueger who is half as scary.

Horror as a genre is dead! Micheal Bay killed it!

He rockin dat clown suit tho


Was there a clown in Slipnot? I do remember John Leguizamo clown from Spawn. But yeah, ICP kind of made the evil clown thing a big joke.

Besides I never found clowns very scary to begin with. What's scary about them? At best they're there to make you laugh, at worst they'll just annoy you.


File: 1541147867310.jpg (37.5 KB, 317x315, 317:315, violator.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Some people find traditional clown makeup to be off putting and creepy or vaguely like something you might see on a predatory reptile or something like that, like it wants to eat you. Perhaps also I guess because some people find characters who seem "maniacal" extra scary and clown makeup is sort of supposed to exaggerate things like smiles and grins and similar facial expressions.

But for the most part I think the fascination with the evil clown characters is primarily rooted in the seeming contradiction of a character who is supposed to be jovial, fun, funny, and friendly with kids as actually being completely evil and a huge threat to kids. For whatever reason, there was a fixation on this trope in the 90s in things like comics, horror movies, video games marketed towards teenage boys, and in heavy metal bands (ICP being kind of the exception as a hip-hop group) that wanted to come off as "edgey".

Problem is that the sort of "dork age of comics" approach the designs of these characters so often took completely missed the point by making the characters about as unsubtle as possible. I mean, just look at how the violator was originally drawn in the comics! It's like "In case you didn't notice my pupil free eyes and grotesque proportions, I'm actually a demon!"
