sure, money can’t buy you “happiness” but it can buy you a sense of financial security, remove the worry of not being able to feed yourself, remove the fear of losing your house, remove the discomfort of not being able to socialize because you don’t have the money to go out, and also it can buy you the new pokemon game and that’s pretty fucking close
Anonymous asked: So let me get this straight. Tumblr demands that RT/AH put warnings for offensive content and even when they do put a warning ,from what I heard they had a warning at the beginning and lets not forget that CAH should be a big enough red flag for offensive humor, tumblr still gets offended?
This statement is completely accurate. They said it several times throughout the hour-long stream as well.
There are many people out there who will go out of their way to be offended. They are not happy unless they are pointing out what others are doing wrong and claiming their outrage as some sort of social justice.
And the biggest rub is that if Rooster Teeth put a mature content warning on their content, these same people would come back and demand more content change.
It is incredibly difficult for me to have patience for these fans. These are the users who have had me ready to delete my Tumblr account on numerous occasions. I don’t want to be associated with these people.
…hence why (Oh hi, segway) I cringe when outrage hits the fans here on Tumblr and is met with “WHY IS THE ENTIRE FANDOM UPSET?” AND “HEY ROOSTER TEETH FANDOM, STOP BEING ANGRY” The generalization is poisonous. Knock that shit off. Stop using the term “Everybody”. If we can’t convince the bad apples to stop with the hate mail and the over-the-top reactions, we can at least cease with the god damn inclusion of everyone on Tumblr who considers themselves a fan as being problematic.
And stop tattle-telling on fans to Suppi. Seriously. All of you tattlers owe her drinks at RTX 2014. ;)
I agree 100%.
As someone who probably rolls her eyes whenever people bring up the “good ol’ days” or the “old community,” I wonder if there was ever this problem back then. I don’t know if it’s the ever-growing population on RT, or if there is a definite Tumblr factor to it all, but I feel like this huge outcry for more sensitive content didn’t exist a few years ago.
It seriously baffles me.
Rooster Teeth is not comprised of bad people. Quite simply, they have a different background and take things with numerous grains of salt (maybe even the whole shaker!)… If you are someone who comes from a different background from them, however, it’s okay! I get that you like Rooster Teeth’s content, and if they changed this one thing then everyone would be skipping around a rainbow, but you’re still experiencing a “trigger” and you’re still reliving a traumatic event/memory. Personally, if someone upset me so fundamentally, I’d cut them out of my life or only talk to them on holidays out of courtesy. I just wish that some people would realize that as soon as you type in that URL, you’re entering into a grey territory for yourself.
This sort of leads me to believe that users who stick around RT with the obvious risk that they will see off-the-cuff, uncensored content, who have already complained/talked about how it upsets them, do so with the subconscious hope that they’ll see something upsetting. At this point, if you’ve been so exposed to it, I don’t see how you can’t expect it. That’s like pushing a button that electrocutes you and hoping that it won’t the 100th time. If I were in that situation, I would ask myself if pushing the button is as fun as getting shocked. If it’s not, I would find another button to push. Maybe it’s a light switch, who knows!
If I had to pick one community, I’d choose Rooster Teeth over Tumblr in a heartbeat. And see, here I am in the position of “Is it really worth it for me to keep going to Tumblr when the people there are so upset all the time?” To which I respond with…
Some people just like to watch the world burn.
Also, there’s a tumblr about Dogs Wearing Hats! Who doesn’t want to see that!?
