the fuck? O.o yeah, i’d avoid that thread. i personally avoid forums. they make me misanthropic.
It’s a thread i started. Because if I didn’t nobody on that forum would. -_-
:(((((((((( that is quite upsetting. i’m so sorry.
yeah. Same threads in which someone told me I was responsible for anti semitism.
demoiselledefortune said: someone in the tag was saying all archers were useless and I laughed.
Shinon pretty much laughs them in the face full stop. PoR Shinon also laughs in their face with his 420% growth total. Which is the second highest beorc growth total in the game (the first being Blossom Sothe).
Shinon is very good at laughing at people in the most aggravating way. Then he kills them :)
:( what is upsetting?
thread on rpg.net (you’d have to be a member of the forum to access it) about anti semitism. Guy is whining that people are equating legit criticism of anti zionism with anti semitism because they have pictures of people equating a star of david with a swastika which is clearly not something anti semitical at all.
I need to get away from that thread because i’m so pissed off right now but shit that stuff really, really does upset me :/
"Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”"

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
This makes me laugh every time I see it.
