I saw this on some website I can’t remember and I had to share it. It’s not mine, but it makes me laugh so much.
THIS IS SO STUPID FUNNY
you think thats great, go see the rest
I need to read all of these.
Sometimes in daily life I like to pretend I’m a time traveler from late medieval Europe and I’m just fucking amazed at my luxurious life
Let me tell you, 14th c me is REALLY impressed with modern me’s easy access to pepper and cinnamon
"you have multiple purple garments? you must be a person of some note"
"these chairs are fantastically luxurious"
"I’ve never seen so much salt in one place"
I am going to start playing this game.
I’m very confused that I’m 28 and not a mother but not infertile.

The irony here is hard to measure. No one would blame you for wanting to play as a character you can relate to. Having empathy is realizing the vast majority of media—games, movies, etc.—are created to satisfy and monetize your desire for self-realization at the expense of many, many other groups.
Let me try to rephrase your comment for you.
"You realize a lot of people just don’t want to play as a male right? Growing up we’re basically shown most leads in action/fantasy films to be male but it’s natural that people want to play as a character like themselves. If there is a problem it goes far beyond videogames. I find it pretty insulting that I would be told I’m calling for censorship just because I want to play as the character I can relate to more."
I absolutely get wanting to play a character you can relate to. Which is why I want the option to play a woman in 95% of games. Sometimes it works for the game, but almost all of the time I want to play a woman. You play the game as BroShep, I’ll play as FemShep. It’s great! Everybody’s happy!
I have just seen the film Lifeboat, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and billed as written by me. While in many ways the film is excellent there are one or two complaints I would like to make. While it is certainly true that I wrote a script for Lifeboat, it is not true that in that script as in the film there were any slurs against organized labor nor was there a stock comedy Negro. On the contrary there was an intelligent and thoughtful seaman who knew realistically what he was about. And instead of the usual colored travesty of the half comic and half pathetic Negro there was a Negro of dignity, purpose and personality. Since this film occurs over my name, it is painful to me that these strange, sly obliquities should be ascribed to me.
