petition to turn “day of silence” into “day of screaming”

just talk about gay things all day

point out oppression whenever you see it

scream at homophobes until your throat goes raw

get loud

get aggressive

refuse to be silenced

make them fuckin listen to you

I approve of this.

Alright, I know this might seem uninteresting to a lot of you, but I HIGHLY, HIGHLY suggest you watch it, regardless of how much you actually care about video games. It contains spoilers, but if you aren’t interested in playing the game its talking about, watch anyways.

It’s a critical analysis of a video game that came out last year, “Spec Ops: The Line.” I played the game a few months ago, and although it wasn’t that fun, I’ve been thinking more and more about it, and I feel comfortable calling it one of the greatest video games of all time. Here’s why: It is the single most brutal critique of shooter video games imaginable, and it comes in the form of a shooter video game.

As they say in the video, the game “is mocking the very genre its working within.” You enter the game with this expectation that you’ll be driving around in cool vehicles shooting terrorists and saving the day, and for a little bit you are, but the game later punches you in the face, bends you over a coffee table, and fucks you mercilessly. 

You kill American soldiers, later learning about their families and personal lives; pets, hobbies, goals and dreams. While fighting the enemy, you fire mortars that accidentally set fire to a refugee camp, watching mothers and children burn alive. You have to make a choice between failing the mission you were given and depriving thousands of citizens from food and water. Your allies in the game literally break the fourth wall, look at you as the player, and ask, “why are you doing this?” Everything goes wrong, and everything feels wrong, and at about the halfway point, you realize: there’s something going on in the story here that isn’t being addressed, but I know that its there.

The game lets you start with this power fantasy of playing as “the U.S. soldier come to save the day,” but then blurs all lines of morality until you know that what you’re doing is both wrong and disgusting, but you keep doing it anyways. It’s an exploration of both the psychological effects of warfare and the dichotomy between these effects and modern day video games about warfare.

It’s indescribable how well the game is put together.

Also, fun fact: being nice to someone you hate does NOT make you two faced

it makes you a mature adult who knows when to pick their battles and when to just let it go and tolerate someone for their shitty personality. 

if you think otherwise grow up

If you’re lesbian and you fall for a guy
FINE
If you’re gay and you fall for a woman
FINE
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for girls
FINE
If you’re bisexual and you have a preference for guys
FINE
If you’re pansexual and have a preference
FINE
What’s not fine is telling someone they can’t love another person because it doesn’t fit into the confinements of a label.
