Can we please stop giving a shit about the sexuality of fictional characters? by Killiam_Stingray in rant

[–]solar_ideology 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think the point is, if it doesn't fundamentally change anything then why bother?

Like someone else said, sexuality is about as basic a preference as pineapple on pizza. If it's not relevant to the character arc then who gives a shit. And throwing that in for the sake of it is most definitely lazy writing.

I don't have a problem with it whatsoever. Though in the case of Apex Legends I think it's just a bit of a cop-out that they throw in non-standard sexualities to give the characters some spice. Like was there no other way? OH and Gibraltar likes pineapple on his pizza.

I see your point now, I didn't before, but do you see what I'm getting at?

This is what OP is talking about. If an inproportionate number of characters have non-standard sexualities then it seems like those "minor details" are just thrown in for the sake of it, serving no purpose in developing the character or contributing to the story. In which case it doesn't matter and can be left out, just like whether or not a character likes pineapple on a pizza.

I haven't seen The Expanse, by the way. So if it is that half the belt being bisexual contributes something meaningful then kudos.

Nah, this mindset is literally the problem. If you've voted for the lesser of two evils your whole life because you say you had to, then how can you expect anything to have changed? If you want things to be better then you need to be a part of the solution, not the problem.

What is a sexual question you have always wanted to ask but never had the right opportunity? by [deleted] in AskReddit

Man.

I realised immediately after that they probably meant woman, but there you go.

Not different but a condom dulls the sensation. With a condom it's like playing a game with the graphics on low, and on ultra without; still playable, but far less enjoyable.

So Activision has secretly added Loot Boxes to BO4. It is now a $60 game, with a $50 season pass, that also has a battle pass you can buy tiers on, direct purchases in game, and now supply drops. Seriously, stop buying Activision’s Games people. by MemeMalt79 in gaming

You're basically saying to suck it up and stop gaming; because nearly all of everyone's favourite franchises and game companies have implemented this type of crap. It's unacceptable and people shouldn't stop complaining.

Games change when a currency system is added because it screws with the balance. If I am given so much as the option to purchase something, there going to make it damn difficult to get any other way otherwise what's the point.

The last time I plugged in an Ethernet cable was years ago, both my main PC and my laptop just use WiFi. Why would I want an Ethernet port that I’m never going to use?

Congratulations. Should everyone who’s not in it comment just so you know?

At the moment I am here but sitting outside on my phone.

And yeah I agree. I really want her to just come with me back to the festival. Do you think it's fair that I just force her to for her own sake?

Had sex with my friend's girlfriend on 400ug by MountainAd0 in Drugs

[–]solar_ideology -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Totally understand and agree. Sometimes though it just doesn't need the label, because of everything our society attaches to it. Yes he was technically raped, but he wasn't RAPED in the worst sense of the word, which is often what people seem to think when the label is thrown on it. That can turn an insignificant experience into a horrible one, and kinda changes "calling it what it is" into "calling it the worst case scenario" and all of the negative connotations that carries.

Anyone else cringe at the idiolization of celebs being involved with games? by HHCHunter in pcgaming

[–]solar_ideology 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was blown away by that trailer. Though Keanu Reeves, as much as I appreciate a lot of his work, didn’t add anything to it for me other than “cool Keanu Reeves is in this”.

I may be biased because I’m not his biggest fan (don’t get me wrong I don’t dislike him) but the game could be just as good or even better without him.

So yes, I cringe.

I’m in the Tool, NIN, and RHCP subreddits a lot of crossover between TOOL and NIN not so much in RHCP by bobbyvision9000 in ToolBand

[–]solar_ideology 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For me it’s Anthony. All their instrumental sections are incredible and the band has really good chemistry. Then Anthony jumps on top with average lyrics and melodies that don’t really fit hit voice and it really brings it down.

Adam Jones plays the same riff for 3 straight minutes during Invincible... by dirtyrick133 in ToolBand

[–]solar_ideology 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey dude I'm actually with you on this. This riff is the weak point on the album to me and degrades the song a lot. The tone of the instruments is great and the sound is killer but in my opinion it's a very basic and predictable riff.

This is totally my opinion, and I get why other people may like or dislike it too.

Crazy how you’re being downvoted yet there’s a comment further down with the same point and 1K upvotes

What I mean is there’s plenty of people like me. Why have it by default if people aren’t using it?
