I had replied to comment that someone had linked to it on Reddit, but Im on a work PC and reddit is blocked. Thank god they leave /. open.

What I find really funny is that I'm pretty hardcore anti-SJW (with the recent GamerGate happenings) even though I would have been considered one until recently. I did work with the GSA when time would permit (new job doesn't allow me to), and I had started two GSA chapters at my old HS, and was active at the one at my community college. Of course, when a group of people start calling you a "Cisgender, heteronormative, misogynistic white man of privilege" for no reason other than who you associate with, you start to get a bad taste in your mouth.

Ill post the study when I can find it, it was quite the interesting read. I had no idea it was a problem.

Im going to reply to you again, but man, I wish I could find the study that shows that queer women in particular are actually more likely to be the victims of rape by another queer women (stat was something like 1 in 3, vs. 1 in 5 for male raping females)

Really? And that must be why there are more battered husbands shelters than battered wives shelters ... oh wait ...

Yeah, because when a woman beats a man, the guy gets told to "Man the fuck up." I had an run with a physically abusive woman. The one time she called the cops on me for "beating her up" (read: restraining her from harming me any further), the cops showed up, saw she didn't have a single mark on her and I was covered in blood. They STILL treated me like I was the abuser in the situation when they showed up.

You know, if they made a 4G LTE Sidekick, I'd buy it in a heart beat. I miss my old Sidekick from the day of feature phones and crappy 3G service.

Or I'd settle for a regular high end smart phone with a god damn keyboard. I love swype but I really preferred typing on a slide out keyboard... and not one that felt odd by only having a protruding end on one side (HTC G1).

Because it looks cool when shit blows up, and I don't just beat up the hookers. Anyone who is out there really. I have to level up my strength stat somehow.

On a more serious note, its just a way to have dumb fun. Sometimes that's what someone wants. I go to school for 12 credits a semester while working a 40+ hour/week job working Hell Desk. Most of the people I play GTAV with are also full time students with jobs. We just want to unwind and enjoy something less mature than we have to be all day long. I know that we don't represent everyone, but I just wanted to provide a contrast to this.

Heard that the next Space Shuttle is supposed to carry several Guernsey cows? It's gonna be the herd shot 'round the world.
