you sound like you're genuinely distressed, and i can empathize. all i'll say is that after a point, you realize that the extent to which you've been lied to is extraordinary. once you can acknowledge that fact, you begin to see things a bit differently. part of growth. it hurts sometimes, but it's required.

a) well, in your belligerent haste, you apparently don't READ very clearly. i deliberately wrote 'when it *seemed*', suggesting, to an observant reader, the inherent and now acknowledged illusory nature of that perception. while government has always 'trampled rights', it's also always been to varying degrees, with a clear and marked acceleration in this country since the end of ww2 (cue eisenhower's MIC warning). b) once things 'calm down' on the global scale? good luck waiting for that.

sorry you read it that way. not my intention at all it wasnt addressed 'at' girls in any way, and more importantly, it was meant as a joke addressed to all the current and former dorky teens (myself very much included) who yearned for a girlfriend amidst their social ineptitude. p.s. i question what 'benefit' joining gaming is for anyone really, beyond entertainment value (isnt that the point?). not exactly curing cancer. but it is fun.

in that case, i apologize for chastising (albeit in a tongue in cheek manner) fins in any way. sounds like its (unsurprisingly) about old moneyed men making rules to perpetuate the status quo and their wallets. glad to see people are realizing so many of these old ideas are stale

im old now and happily married.. but if i was still a teenager, i would really appreciate anything that could be done to encourage more girls (preferably hot ones) to pick up gaming.. (so they could come over to my house and play). these regulations are cock-blocking our dorky-teen brethren!!
