2021.10.23 15:16 loveisjustchemicals Ableism and pronouns
I’m aware that pronouns allow us to better express our identities. Like names, we *should be able to adapt and remember pronouns after interacting with someone. But as a neurodivergent person who often struggles to remember “American” names when I meet more than three people (I struggle even more when they’re not names we typically encounter in the US, and groups can be difficult to navigate), if someone has a not obvious pronoun or one that conflicts with my understanding of the world (it/its, because I seek to value everyone as a person and it is used for inanimate objects) it can be incredibly difficult to remember these pronouns. I know I’m not alone in this. She/He/They are no problem because I typically only have to muster enough focus on the folks pronouns that aren’t obvious via visual cues that I tend to rely even more on when I’m in groups. There are a multitude of physical and mental conditions that impair ones memory or processing that are invisible and unless you know the person, you would probably not be aware of until we make a social blunder.
Ageism, though not my issue, also comes into play. Older people don’t have the same brain elasticity to remember things that were recently “invented” (ie not something they were aware of) linguistically. They might have the best of intentions regarding your pronouns, but simply not be able to remember things that contradict with their years of gendered social programming. This is different than people purposely misgendering because of prejudice.
But one can’t look at a person who is neurodivergent and know that more than three pronouns can be overwhelming. Like you potentially can when someone is older; even some older folks will be right on it. You can never tell by looking at someone, is my point. So while you seek to better express yourself, please consider that not everyone you encounter will be able to remember your pronouns, especially neopronouns/xenopronouns, and it isn’t a slight or meant to insult you. It’s how we are, and we are constantly apologizing for it in many different contexts. A bit more understanding goes a long way when it comes to nuanced communication and comprehension, especially when there’s the expectation to learn. Thank you for reading and considering my point of view.

2021.10.23 15:16 delnith HiScores Section for F2p Players
There currently is no hiscores list that highlights F2P players. I think a maxed f2p account would be impressive, but no one would ever know about it or see it highlighted as an achievement.
Mods, would it be difficult to create a section that is overall level or experience for f2p only accounts? Not including accounts that have been members but are not actively in membership.
Anyone else have thoughts? Is it to niche?

I’m pretty shaken up over the Gus Johnson stuff and it feels like Supermega are the only guys who haven’t done questionable things (that we know of). So like pls matt and ryan don’t be abusive or racist or some shit.

2021.10.23 15:16 muckturtle what's the reason foreigners hate the foreigner pro China YouTubers dumbbell, Lightfoot, barrett etc?
I know some Asians on reddit don't like them because they think only Chinese/Asians should be talking about China.
but how about the foreigners?
is it because the foreigners consider them to be race traitors for making pro China videos? i.e. they shouldn't be batting for the other side? so they hate them more than they hate Chinese pro China YouTubers?

This is a common debate in the community, and I want to see how people who actually started from different points felt. I hypothesize that most people enjoy wherever they started because it’s such a good series and can be enjoyed either way, but we shall see. This isn’t the popular opinion by any means.

2021.10.23 15:16 Iman246 I get very jealous of my sister because our dog loves her more.
She is the one who got him and spend with him his first 5 month and I wasn't there. So i get it yeah she must be his favourite person. But now and for the last 6 years (he's almost 7 years) i do alot for him i feed him, clean his place, play with him, spend time, sleeps besides me (he can't sleep beside her and I like that hahahah), buy him toys... Etc. I mean i do everything a good mommy could do and he and the other dog are everything in my life but still when he sees her he become super happy. Whilst she doesn't care about not even close to normal. I am not that sad actually i became happy too when I see him happy but i find it not fare i deserve that love more.
