Anonymous asked: so has a brony come up to you and say he doesn't approve of that kind of shit, or are they still making up excuses and being apologists?
my inbox is about a three way split between bronies who don’t approve of that shit, bronies who don’t approve of that shit BUT [reasons justifying their apathy], and ex-bronies who stopped using the brony label because it’s ruined
Anonymous asked: That's a pretty shitty comparison but you have a good point.
the point is don’t get caught up on the shitty comparison as an excuse to ignore the point. A hyperbolic diss towards fedoras/bronies/men is not the Achilles’ Heel to someone’s entire argument you think it is
Do you think when Orwell wrote
"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever"
he got a bunch of anons telling him that there’s nothing inherently wrong with wearing boots and not all bootwearers are bad
groddite asked: What is your dream job, Neil?
a career counselor once told me I’d be very good at babysitting internet drama from fandoms I have nothing to do with.
Anonymous asked: I hate to use the now-cliched saying that "not all bronies are like that", but it's pretty extreme for that anon to suggest that all bronies defend the use of rape jokes to such an extent. Frankly there's been immature behavior and death threats from both sides of the spectrum; it's just become an absurd trend to suggest that bronies play a major role in rape culture when in reality it was just a single tumblr blog (closed down by Hasbro as of last week) that remains unknown by most others.
maybe if i got a single message in my inbox that said
"i’m a brony and i am absolutely not okay with that shit"
instead of walls of abuse-excusing, over-defensive white noise
i’d have a kinder view of ye bronefolk
Anonymous asked: Remember last year when you told Bronies not to be jerks about rape jokes? A 17 year old sexual abuse survivor led a successful campaign to take down a blog about Molestia. Bronies flipped, and this kid is now being harassed IRL and online. They posted her address around and sent her shit. They tried to write her parents to tell on her. They drew porn of her pony character being raped. They made blogs to harass her. If only those dudes had listened to you back then, this has gone beyond.
in retrospect, I was too kind to the Bronies.

my opinion is irrelevant, like it should be
thedevilsbacklog asked: Hey Neil, I heard you liked POINT+CLICK adventure games. Did you playKentucky Route Zero? I was thinkin of gettin it but it's KINDA expensive for an indie game.
That looks incredibly pretty, but I’m kinda put off by the “no traditional puzzles or challenges” description; lately I’ve been really craving something with solid, traditional nonlinear adventure game puzzles. Even Broken Age’s puzzles are pretty streamlined, influenced by the touchscreen-era. I love the feelings evoked by games with slick minimalism like KRZ, but I want that paired with lateral-thinking-heavy gameplay!
sometimes you cry for no seemingly no reason.
but the reason is simple: you are under a mummy’s curse

More like Sissa-Reega. It’s got the same vowel sounds as “Filipina”
