Does being a gamer qualify as "Membership of a Particular Social Group"?

Why is the "ancient" one all but one of them the third or fourth entries in their series?
Also, I don't get what the Joker has to do with any of this...

Some of them I can't even post here
If you want to call people who isolate and obsess with button-fiddling to the exclusion of all social contact except whining about being oppressed when they're in fact being enabled, then sure.
California's civil rights statute doesn't define "protected classes" but refers to membership within a group as perceived as well as real so, applicability of "groups" is more general here than federally.

yes, it could be!
But the Joker was a bad guy, and insane... and the movie goes out of it's way to show us he was wrong...
Sometimes I wonder if people actually understand half the movies they watch.
>>952680>joker insane and wrong
What the movie shows us is that he's glorious. I love when they say you think you can just come in here and steal from US, he just says "yeah".
Im not entirely sure hes insane so much as a sociopath with a LOT of enthusiasm and a death wish.
Edit: wait this is this
thread and it came to the Joker. Manley...

I added an edit.
I dunno, to me that Joker had a lot of qualities i admire. Aren't movies there so we can live out those things vicariously without consequences?
Tell me bout the nihilist joker, which ones he?
Most versions of the Joker are nihilistic.
And you're not supposed to see yourself in the Joker. He's the bad guy. He's one of a few Batman villains who you're NOT supposed to sympathize with. Some like Mr. Freeze or Two-Face have sympathetic backstories, or mental issues outside their control that make them on some level sympathetic. You can understand their actions, but not condone them. The Joker is different. He's %100 evil, with no redeeming qualities or sympathetic aspects. And when you THINK he has those, it turns out he was just manipulating someone (and the audience) into thinking he does.>>952695
Then we'd have to come to a consensus on what "insane" means. To me, murdering dozens of people without remorse kind of makes you insane. Dogmatic adherence to your world-view even in the face of evidence against it makes you insane.
Perhaps we'll have to disagree on definitions for insane. I do like yours!
Cmon now, when Joker extorted his half of the money from the organized crime bosses, dont tell me you didn't consider him the protagonist in that part of the movie.
The way Batman storylines having multiple bad guys really lets that sorta micro-climate kinda relationship between the viewers and the villains has always been my favorite aspect. Then there's the "POW" effects in the fight scenes but i digress.

>>952699>Then we'd have to come to a consensus on what "insane" means.
I'd define insane as some level of "incapable", which the Joker is not. He's very capable, and seems to know exactly what he's doing.
Him extorting the money didnt make me think think of him as the protagonist. Alfred explains a few scenes later what thats supposed to represent. That Batman's pressure on the mob made them desperate and they turned to someone they didn't fully understand. And that the Joker isnt looking for moeny and just wanted to cause chaos. Or as Alfred eloquently puts it "watch the world burn".>>952709
Then how would you describe him?

Probably just evil, which isn't something I think should be associated with insane.

Millennials includes people who are pushing 40 at this point. many of whom have been playing since the late 80s and early 90s, when most of them were still children.
So, the joke about gamers being ancient if they had been playing since like, 2007 or 2008, and thus "badass" and not to be fucked with, is mocking a juvenile and narcissistic perspective.
I have an Atari. It requires a bit more imagination, but it's still pretty fun.
but I see what you mean. We are quickly approaching the third generation of people who grew up with video games.

Why is the spoiler bar black? Seems like forced diversity to me, am I right my gamer fellas?
It's time to rise up and remove this UNREALISTIC political bullshit. I HATE unrealism in my games. Now, if you excuse me, I will have my playable character be shot 10 times and still survive.

You spoilt kids dont know oppression.
Why, when i was a gamer in the 80s we didn't even have a group, or an identity. People just thought we were strange nerds except we weren't actually smart or anything.
