They’re running out of things for normals to get SHOCKED about.

They’re running out of things for normals to get SHOCKED about.

Anal sex so she don’t get preggo isn’t one of those things that i think is *common*, but I don’t think it’s uncommon either, if that makes any sense.

For every teenager going through this stuff, it’s their first time around and there’s a lot of bullshit out there.

For most, this information will be dry, academic or at best, intriguing for its naughty factor

But maybe for a few, it’ll come in handy if they’re in that situation.

I’m ancient. Even back in the 80s, I’d hear girls talk about “if you go anal you won’t go pregnant” (stupid conversations I’d overhear talking down the hallway).

But I doubt it’s something they’d ever ask their “coach, teacher, priest, doctor or other trusted adult” about. They’d just trust the girl-gossip medical advice.

I agree. I think it can have a desensitizing effect. That part is true. The more you see it, the less you care about what it represents and you could reach a point where everything is entertainment to you, even if it’s real.

It might make some things acceptable that otherwise wouldn’t be.

But like you said, it’s nothing at all like a cause and effect. More like environment.

For example, X-Box culture is toxic.

====

Most dramatic difference I’ve seen is Minecraft. Minecraft PC has toxic and non-toxic communities. Nowadays it’s pretty non-toxic overall as the people who were toxic have moved on to other games.

Minecraft Wii U is mostly non-toxic.

But Minecraft X-Box, even though it’s nearly identical to the Wii U edition has a toxic community.

Yet, even there, it’s not as toxic as console shooter culture or GTA V but compared to the Minecraft worlds, it’s toxic.

I know because my nephew’s done all three and he’s brought it up a few times. Still, toxic can be fun. That’s why people do it.

====

Overwatch, his current obsession, apparently is toxic. But it’s nowhere the levels of toxic that you’ll find in the older titles. It seems the newer titles are attracting a younger crowd and even if they’re still toxic, they’re not as toxic as the old XBox game communities were/are.

He knows to stay away from those games. He sees them as “old people games” and he rolls his eyes if any of the friends his age start getting into them.

But the funny thing I’ve seen in his age group: They say the same things, “you’re a noob, get rekt / i’m gonna rape you” but they don’t mean it seriously. They don’t usually seem to get bent out of shape about it, veins popping out of their heads in anger and stuff.

I’m hoping the trend of their generation being mostly ironic about this stuff continues.

He’s got the skillsets but what he doesn’t like about the older style is they’re all dark and serious, with like three colors and lots of fog and shading. All atmosphere.

 You’re getting old :) Colors are coming back (finally). Doom and gloom has been the thing since Doom in 1996… and it’s had a long reign.

 There’s still apocalyptic themes but the lore seems a little different now.

  I grew up with a few friends like that. I dabbled a little. I taught myself how to make chain mail as a young teenager and made a few pieces. But whenever I’d see a friend who was REALLY into that stuff, it was a good reminder not to get *too* sucked in.
  I was *so* close and honestly, I’m jealous of them. I never had the nerve to dress up and do that stuff. I actually _admire_ furries (yes I do) and people who go to this-Con and that-Con.I don’t have the nerve to do any of that stuff. Pretending to be normal seems important for some reason. So I keep doing it.

  The only thing I ever allowed myself to get into in my life that came _close_ that I’d think about cosplaying is Doctor Who.But even as a teenager, I’d look on with scorn at the cosplayers (I don’t think they were called cosplayers.. but something else. Anime was still “Japanamation” yikes.Yet, I’d be a little jealous of them too. I dunno. I have a hard enough time pretending to be me.

  What you see here is an ongoing internet cosplay of Kenneth Udut. I’m still not sure if I’m doing it right.
===
  Yeah. Before it was anime… it was JAPANIMATION
…for… a long time.
Far too long.

  It was their height though. MLP. A few months after my friend made me into a pony, this song came out – and there were other pony related creepy things going on. It had its moment in the sun.

  It’s kind of a waste. It reminds me of birthday presents. Imagine a beautifully wrapped birthday present. You think it’s going to be something amazing inside. Then you open it up and it’s something really disappointing.
  http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/lexicon.php…Ah! Here we go. It was ONE American import company that sold it as “Japanimation”. But they were everywhere. Nobody liked the term: it sounded racist. But – it worked. It sold stuff and got people involved.

Looks like the guy that coined “Japanimation” stopped using it in 1999 and offered to change promotional materials to say “Anime” to retailers. He wasn’t happy about making the change but “Japanimation” really had to go. But he got rich off it so he had nothing to complain about.

 What’s weird about “anime” as a word? It’s short for anime-shon. Animation. It just means animation.
