I love WoW. I spent way too much time on there, immersed in the fantasy world. It's great cos I feel like I can be myself, cos no-one knows otherwise.

I used to live in MMO worlds too, for the same reason. Lately, since I've been actively transitioning and going out into the real world as myself I don't have as much desire to live my life online.

I still log into SL now and then since I have a few friends that are regulars there. I also still play EQMac occasionally, because it's as close to classic old school hardmode EQ you can get. Which is awesome.

@ Bellexia and LuRay, I haven't tried WoW yet,as I need to get a comp that can handle it first, but if and when I do, Is there a dictionary I could buy so I can understand what is being said? You two totally lost me there. I did enjoy the read, even if I understood only half of it. ;)

WoW is 8 years old and will run on a toaster, or probably even better on my S4. You just pick up MMO's / the lingo and so on as you play - we had a laugh yesterday remembering when my partner and I both saved up the 70-odd gold to by a huge bear each. Then got excited about it. Now she'll spend thousands on pets and I'm a gear/transmog ho. (My bank is literally full of dresses/tier sets)

Bellexia - Love doing the warbringer farm - spent a weekend farming them for our core raiders, then got the one from Ondasasasaasasratrasartasasasererloldino on my first pull of it. If I'm on my disco priest, then I'll 2s them with a tank, if on pala/DK, then I'll just afk while fear hits. Tanking in Demo is fun, until a pala or something comes along and vengence starts to stack, bye bye aggro.

Hah yeah I had a really nice mog set, everyone says it's ugly and doesn't go with a DK at which point I tell them they are my team colors. http://imageshack.us/a/img713/682/wowscrnshot032913152523.jpg

I have loads of sets I use from time to time. I tank in Destro :3 Those ember heals are so OP.

Sorry, but when I tried to download and run, my comp wasn't good enough, so I will have to wait for a better comp.

BTW, I am running with just 768 Mb ram, barely enough to run a browser at any reasonable speed, even the chat room bogs down.

Good God, do I ever feel old now :huh:

My favorite game is called "Life" on a cardbard gameboard where everyone playing gets their own little cars with little holes in them that you fit pink or blue (people) pegs in them...

maybe you just have to be there for any of this to make any sense...

:unsure: Cherry

I played a MMO called real life before. Player versus player is really intense. The graphics are amazing but when you die you lose all your gear and your family bickers over who gets the loot you dropped.

I've played this Real Life game you guys mention. The graphics were amazing but the gameplay was downright dull. Plus, seemed like most of the other players were constantly arguing about whether there was an Admin or not.

Wait, I didn't know non electronic games were available to choose from as well.

In that case, my favorite is D&D tabletop rpg. Yes, the game with pencils, paper, funny looking dice, and all that. It looks silly from an outsiders perspective, but it actually very VERY fun when you're with the right group. It's a very social game and a great way to have fun on the weekend without spending money.

What System do you play? I am a 2E person myself, but have been trying to learn the later editions as well.

I love the Mass Effect games especially and can't wait for the 4th one. And I also enjoyed Dishonored as well :) I played all of these on PC but I also like a bit of Gran Tourismo 5 on the ps3.

I don't know if any of you will have played it, but my favourite game of all time is Shenmue I/II on the Sega Dreamcast. It was the first RPG game that I had bought (despite having a PS1 for a years previously), and it was incredible. There was a whole game World to explore, where you were free to ignore the main quest (I spent so much time playing the Space Harrier, Darts and Hang-On games in the arcade!). Add in an intriguing story mixed with detective elements, martial arts, and Japan and it's still my favourite. I have long waited the day when the saga would be finished, but I doubt it now :(

A very close second is Skies of Arcadia/Skies of Arcadia: Legends. A much, much larger game world than Shenmue, explored by airships featuring Air Pirates. I remember playing the demo, and it took two hours to finish (it went through to the first main dungeon of the game). The lands were full of colour, and the battle system was different (never played a turn-based RPG before). Again, it's still easily playable even now :)

Third has to be Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. No explanation needed, Crash Bandicoot is just awesome :)

Lots of love, Lily xxx

PS. Favourite game of this generation is easily Mass Effect trilogy - Renegade interrupt every time! I've always found it natural to be evil in video games...

I'm currently playing World of Tanks again. After more than a years hiatus, game update and compy wouldn't play it any more. Now that I have a new compy, that will play it, I've been having a lot of fun again, shooting tanks.

      @Abigail GenevieveI was raised on St. Louis Cardinals Baseball & Blues Hockey. I’m old enough to have been a Cards Football fan too, but Bill Bidwell changed that when he moved the team to Arizona.

      Honestly, I wasn't talking about religious stances on trans people when I wrote that. That said, religion fosters transphobia in subtle and awful ways. Such as your reference for the SBC, it's a sin. Why? Because they interpret scripture in a way to exclude trans people from the capability of being saved? Where do you think transphobia really stems from? It is 100% rooted in religion. Even those that aren't religious are influenced by religion, society as a whole has been. I think handwaving their position as simply "honoring tradition" or "interpreting sin" as not being transphobic is allowing their doublespeak to cloud judgement. If they truly loved, respected, understood, and embraced humanity people they wouldn't exclude trans people. They would go to the parts of the bible that talk about loving everyone as they are God's creations and just letting God sort it out in the end, but no: if you're not cis/het, you're not welcome and shame on you [selected slur]!   On the flip side, I draw parallels to how religion behaves exactly as xstian nationalists insist LGBTQ+ people are grooming youths. The main way to make more xtians is to breed and indoctrinate the young. Trans people aren't forcing their young to be trans or guilting them to no end if they're not or traveling the world as missionaries to spread transness!   Anyway, I am flying too close to the Sun here. I have no qualms if people find solace, grace, or peace in faith or religion, but I am wary of the idea that religion doesn't propagate transphobia.

      I’m glad to hear you mean no harm and have no beef with genderfluid folks. Thank you for clarifying that. This still seems a strange presumption to me though, when so much of anti-trans propaganda is clearly either (a) concocted in bad faith to justify an argument, or (b) based on ignorant assumptions. Yes it’s possible a few outliers in the trans community are making ridiculous claims about this topic, but even if so I seriously doubt they are the cause of the relevant anti-trans propaganda.    That may well be a fair call, and you’re right that “transphobe” is an over-generalisation. I used it as a shorthand and because, as Sally and MaeBe said, there is always a transphobic minority that spreads the anti-trans views which then unfortunately influence some who are less transphobic. But I still think we can fairly characterise such beliefs as being transphobic, at least partly. As to the absence of hatred in those church documents, you may be right about that, but I would be wary of taking people or institutions at face value when they urge love and compassion. Even the most virulent transphobes sometimes claim to support trans people. Actions speak louder than words.    I do better understand your anguish over lack of belief in trans identities now though. It must be very difficult being trans and involved with certain churches. I know there are some churches that accept and affirm trans folks though; maybe it’s time for a change in denomination?
    • Abigail Genevieve
      I looked through the Focus on the Family material and also the Southern Baptist Convention stuff, both highly influential, both rejecting transgenderism.  I found no hatred but an urge to treat people with love and compassion. I found some logical fallacies in both and nothing convinced me to change my position.  SBC assumes someone who is transgender is not saved and so is not allowed to join their congregations.    I have a certain affection for both.  FotF helped us with some material that helped us raise our kids and on most issues they are fellow travelers.  SBC seeks to conscientiously fight the good fight but I would never join a SBC church for reasons that are irrelevant here.  Not that I could now in good conscience.  I look like a guy? SURPRISE!  Left boot of fellowship.   The Nashville Statement is worse.  CBMW.org wrote it and it has been criticized heavily by some trans folk. . https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement#articles  I am saddened at some of who signed the thing. Articles 10 and 13 are of particular interest.  Other things can be found here that trans folk would take exception to. But they do not treat TG as something flippant.    I would not refer to any of these as transphobes.  I am not sure the term is useful in conceptualizing or interacting with those who object to the idea of transgender being something besides sin.  When all you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.

      Nice to see you, dear and congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. Very well done!

      It's estimated between 1-2% of the general population is transgender. This is based on a cursory web search of studies and stats. So apply that to all teachers and students in Florida. According to ballotpedia, in 2022 there was a total of about 3 million public school teachers and students combined. That does not include  higher ed institutions and private institutions. So let's tack on another million people which is a pretty conservative estimate. 1-2% of 4 million is 40,000-80,000 people.
    • Vidanjali
      Both. In the course of experience an individual will naturally go through periods of inquiry and seek to define their experiences for deeper personal insight. This potentially goes on and on, though some have greater curiosity than others.

      Heck I would get rid of the left and right lower rib. I would love a narrower waist but I would still need to get rid of my gut. I guess I'll do liposuction and tummy tuck and while they are at they can remove those ribs. 
    • MaeBe
      What @Sally Stone wrote is what I think as well.   The flippancy they ascribe to trans people is to validate their position that trans people are given to whim and swayed by the "trans ideology" that is "poisoning" humanity. Projecting this narrative on trans people "wins them points" in the game of their own making and being loud about it gets others to listen. They get those, who likely don't have a personal stake in transgender rights, to nod their heads up and down to increase the volume of their rhetoric. The passive transphobe does this because they have never needed to comprehend gender as anything as what they've always assumed; the "easy" answer the loud ones project just seems "logical" when there is no comprehension or compassion.   Once a person looks past their own ignorance they can come to understand this isn't about what they fear (insert crass statement about what transphobes are actually afraid of). It's just too easy to be ignorant and state "all I've ever known are two genders, boys and girls, who have sex together to make babies" (conflating gender and sex, as usual...) instead of taking just a little bit of time to understand the world is more complex than a simple bible verse.   For those people, I have a rib or two they can have for making more women--that's just how they're made--I really want a narrower waist for dress season.

      St. Louis is a Cardinals town.  At least you have the right team!
    • Abigail Genevieve
      The mindset seems to be: they are not crazy, we are.   Surveys indicate the majority of people are in favor of trans rights.  There is a minority that is influenced by the inner minority, the hard core "transphobes".  I think a lot of people simply need information.  But then they get two streams of information from opposite directions.

      Good afternoon everyone,   We're heading back to the St. Louis, MO metro area for my sister-in-laws retirement party. It appears that everyone on that side of the family now knows about my coming out & transition. So they will be looking at my androgynous manner of dress, in a totally different way. I'm wearing workout leggings, and a St. Louis Cardinals jersey. My leggings doesn't have pockets, so I'm carrying a cross body sling bag. My hair is held back with a white Cardinals visor, and my tennis shoes have Cardinal red lases.      Let the side eyes begin,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
    • Sally Stone
      Abigail, I think this line of thinking comes mostly from the cis community, specifically, those with an anti-trans agenda.  These are the self-proclaimed experts ( who have no idea what it's like to be trans) trying to tell us they have a better understanding of being trans than we do.
