kloserson asked: Do you dislike White Supremacy because it has a pompous feel to it? I dislike them personally because a lot "live to hate" and it's really not Nationalism.

I dislike it because it’s arrogant to say a race is better than every other one. I also dislike it because most White Supremacists like you said “live to hate” and that’s all they want to do. They hate for the sake of hating and don’t want to change anything for the better.

Also white supremacists are usually white trash hillbillies who have not and most likely will not contribute anything to society, yet somehow think they are superior to every other race simply because they are white. Some of them are educated, but most of them I’ve met/encountered absolutely are not.

elnefashu asked: You said that "someone is always upset about pretty much everything." But I've yet to meet a single person who was upset about the fetchlands being reprinted :)

I’ve gotten letters of people complaining. I believe most of them had them already and liked that they had something that was so hard to get.

Waaaaah, waaaah, my paper-board is worth less than it was before! My hopes of selling my magic cards to fund my retirement have been shattered! Curse you MaRo and WotC! /mocking sarcasm.

Why can't Tumblr play MtG with a storm deck?

It has too many triggers.

guys i understand that you’re trying to make a joke, but this isn’t funny. let’s not make fun of disabilities, please…

Yes, your statistical analysis of the tumblr community’s triggers is totally scientifically sound you complete asshat. You don’t know what anyone’s life experience has been so there is no way for you to determine what is and isn’t a real trigger for someone. Also, while the outside world is full of triggers that doesn’t mean we as a community should ignore the large and beautiful movement towards being more aware and sympathetic towards other people, such as respecting when someone mentions a trigger of theirs.

No, you’re right, I don’t know about others experiences, but I do know of my own, I also know of my friends, and to call me an asshat means you have no idea where I am coming from.  Being open is one thing, blindly accepting things at face value is another.  You act as if we should just trust everyone and what they say, as if people don’t lie to get attention, as if people don’t stretch the truth to make themselves seem better.  If your life experience has led you to the point where you can trust those you have never met without hesitation, then congratulations for you, I, on the other hand have found little to trust in the relative anonymity of the internet.  Need I remind you, this was all started because of a JOKE that someone went and got offended by, and if you’re going to naively believe that it isn’t funny just because some people  have triggers that are real? You need to get that stick out of your ass because the joke isn’t directed at THOSE people, it’s directed at those people who do it to get attention, to garner for themselves special treatment.

I’m sorry, but 9/10 times people on tumblr’s “Triggers” are bullshit. The joke is still quite funny.  Real life has triggers, life is about learning to deal with them.  What MaRo was talking about was not being INTENTIONALLY a dick to people, like directly making sexist commentary during games and tournaments, particularly with mixed company. On the other hand, making a joke about Tumblr’s propensity of giving in to people’s sometimes seemingly ridiculous demands to be treated like a special snowflake is entirely funny and warranted.
