It’s fun, and I hurt all over. I stayed from 12PM till’ about 4:50PM. After that it started to get a bit to chaotic, too many people started to complain and bitch about what they wanted to do. Which got Tyler (one of the admins) so pissed that he left, because he was trying to accommodate for everybody, but in the end it just proved to be to stressful for him. I don’t blame him. LARP itself is pretty interesting, but their storyline doesn’t interest me as much as the workout does. I need to workout more though. But that’s how my days been.
Watched it last night, and it was really good. Though, James didn’t really believe it at all. For some reason, I get the feeling that he’s the type of guy that believes whatever the government tells us. Eh, I don’t necessarily believe all of it. Aliens on the moon? Well, it sure would be a hell of a good reason to never to go back. But them doing shit and not telling us? Most definatley.
I just don’t understand the concept of believing everything the government tells us.
I don’t know if rape jokes encourage rape culture. I don’t care. You still shouldn’t tell them.
Statistically, if you have told a rape joke to a group of more than five people, one of the people you told it to was a rape survivor, possibly of multiple rapes. They will not necessarily disclose this to you; rape apologism is endemic in society and most rape survivors are cautious about whom they tell. Some may even be too ashamed of their rape to admit it to anyone, or because of rape-minimizing narratives like “men can’t be raped” and “I consented to oral, so I couldn’t have been raped” may not admit it even to themselves. The fact remains: if you’ve told dozens of rape jokes in your life, then you have almost certainly told a joke that minimizes or trivializes rape in front of a survivor.
And if you put as your Facebook status “I totally raped at Halo today” for your two hundred Facebook friends to see, statistically, you have just reminded thirty-three people of one of the worst experiences of their entire lives.
So, Ryan, a guy I’ve known since my eighth grade celebration, recently broke up with his girlfriend. And I’ve dated this guy off and on for 4 or so years, so I decided to ask him. What he said was that “a few friends wanted him to go but he didn’t know if he would, but he would take it in to consideration,” so I said thank you and went about my day. Even though I’ve been thinking about it for a good long while now, and I’ve pretty much decided I’m gay. Ryan still means a lot to me, and I figured it’d be good to go with a friend. (And there are no girls I know, that I like (that aren’t straight lol) that I want to go with.) Of course I’ll need the answer soon, but then while I was telling my step-sister, she told me that him and his ex-girlfriend still planned on going together (from what the ex-girlfriend told her.)
Well, this pisses me off. I don’t know why he just won’t tell me he’s going with somebody else. I know I asked him a good couple or so months ago before prom was even a big deal, and he said he would. Then later to realize he had a girlfriend (not the same one).
What the fuck man.
I just wish he’d be a little more honest with me. I mean, I don’t care who he goes with, I just need to know, because if not, I’m going to have to go with somebody else.
