Sounds like you need to read my book, Calming Your Cornhole.  If anything, I'm more dissing Nintendo.

SIR DO YOU BITE YOUR THUMB AT ME!?

Elon Musk worship. The guy does nothing but spout bullshit and yet people never fail to lap it up. It's ridiculous.

Being totally fair, he does do a lot of awesome things to try and make tech more environmentally friendly.  But, yeah, just because he's done good doesn't mean he ain't capable of being a complete dumbass.

Playing a indie RPG and it freezes and crashes midway through a quest, and that was the ONE quest I really wanted to do.   Arrrrrgh.

Being suspended for 2 days from work because people are sick of your attitude but can't seem to make the connection that you get attitude because you have attitude.

When people argue that because something wasn't true in history, it can't be in fiction either. Even in fantasy.

...And it's not even the big things, they'll accept dragons and daemons and guys with swords that weigh twice their own weight but show them potatoes in LOTR and they'll start creaming about anachronisms, show them women on battlefield and they'll cry about feminists ruining everything ...apparently just seeing horses of the wrong breed will set them off on a rant on how you are bad-wrong if your fantasy world with elves has horse breeds that weren't seen in Europe during medieval period.

Guys, there's a difference between historical fiction and fantasy.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

What's even more fun is the ones who are fine with potatoes and varying horse breeds, but show them one woman fighter or one person with skin darker than paper, and they start absolutely screaming.

To be fair, no woman anywhere knows how to fight, all women exist solely for babies and cleaning, and fantasy is supposed to be about _white_ people, damn it.

...that's sarcasm, by the way. Not a serious statement.

I did mention women on battlefield as it seems to upset a lot of people.

Of course, the seminal work of Western fantasy has a woman killing one of the main antagonists, so...

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

And we have examples of women fighting in wars. More commonly now than centuries ago but seeing someone go "it is biologically impossible for women to be soldiers" is just ridiculous when we actually have real world examples that prove otherwise.

For God's sake, we have proof of children fighting in wars (though most people would prefer to end that practice.)

I thought that they loved Child soldiers because they haven't yet developed a moral framework. I thought that was one of the reasons that Janissarys were particularly badass.

From a Finnish source I have heard that 17-year olds make great soldiers because they have not yet understood their own mortality. I assume that the same applies to kids younger than that but younger also means less physically capable as well. ...Which simply means bigger casualties or need to use them for jobs that don't require extreme physical strength.

That's why you use them for sneak attacks.  Few people expect a young kid to be carrying a bomb or a gun, much less that they'd use one to kill you in your sleep.
