hominivorax: (dollz)
Have you ever had one of those days where you wanted to beat the everliving hell out of someone in hopes that a clue-by-four to the head will make them understand something, just a tiny, tiny bit? I'm having one of those days. There's this thread on DoA, posted by a guy who's either the most obtuse person on the planet or is just trolling for the lulz. Either way, he's fucking annoying and I want to tell him to piss off, or go fuck himself, or something equally not sunshine-and-puppies. HE's got this notion about BJDs-that they'r a really really good investment becasue the industry is *totally going to tank in a couple years and his three (yes, folks, count 'em, three) dolls are somehow going to be worth a mint because they have factory faceups and are in mint condition. ....I'll let you get your laughter under control before I continue, shall I?

...Right, now we've all got hold of ourselves, here's the thread:
http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?436102-Trying-to-Understand-the-BJD-Industry

It seems, more or less, that he's mainly whinging because Iplehouse had the nerve to shut down for a couple months when Americans (and we must all bow to TEH MIGHT OF THE 'MURICAN NATION, don'tchaknow) have money to spend, and also because he got a pair of option feet from Elfdoll that weren't the exact same shade as his doll's body. My opinion? He's either a troll or a fukking moron. He's also arrogant in the extreme, completely unable to grok a single thing we're saying, and an admitted opportunist who's into these dolls because he thinks he'll make ton of money off them, as they're "contemporary Asian art". LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL He comes in knowing bugger-all about the hobby, the people buying these dolls, why we buy them, the properties of resin and everything else, and then essentially declares himself an expert on art and investments and whatever other bollox he's spouting. Uhm. What.

I've been trying to keep my mouth shut and just bask in the glory of the fuckery that is that thread, because he's got even the brilliant and usually silver-tongued JennyNemesis, among others, utterly gobsmacked. It's absolutely fantastic, really, the level of stupidity this dude is showing. He just does. not. understand. The hobby, the people in it, or how it/they work/think. I'm still waiting for Godwin's Law to be invoked-it isn't truly epic fuckery until someone mentions Nazis! XD

For your convenience, I present a few choice posts by him:
In which the wank begins and he starts on his way to missing the point
The OP )

In which the point of the hobby and the replies being given is passed by on his way to wherever *his* point is going.
First response to replies )

Response to a couple of other posts )
Awesome, so now some of us are too young and stupid to demand our 'rights', I guess?

Yet more point missing and misunderstanding/ignorance )

And his most recent post, wherein he's STILL not getting it )

The level on which he fails/is missing the point/is displaying colossal stupidity is mind-boggling.


And my response to his latest post, because I couldn't help myself any longer:
MY post, which is as polite and coherent as I could manage )


So, what do you good folks think?

I am tired. :| I am tired of being laid off, which will hopefully change soon or I will likely go mad.
I am also tired of stupid bullshit and annoying people like some of the ones at the club I go to. Some days it is entirely too much like a room full of idiots and five year olds. The idiots annoy me and the creepy bastards make me want to kick them in the balls. The stupid cattiness from certain other people annoys the living hell out of me, too. Sometimes I hate being female because of the stupid bloody behaviour which is apparently necessary when someone is feeling fucking insecure. Someone at the club seems to feel that because our mutual friend talks to her, he is not under any circumstances to talk to or otherwise pay attention to any other female and him doing that is cause for said bitchiness. Can I just make something perfectly clear? Get a bloody clue, will you?-he's not your boyfriend and he's not interested. And for the record, I'm not interested in fucking him, either. Actually, lemme put this out there: I'm a virgin, 'k? I'm not planning on doing anyone right now, so stop trying to get me pissed off at him because you're jealous or wotever and think driving me off will give you a chance. The only person I'm going to be angry with is you because you're acting like an idiot and I was under the (apparently) mistaken impression that you were actually my friend.

Also, to certain male people at the club: you are not sexy. You are all balding and unnatractive, so for the love of god stop carrying around the whips and shit and lurking in corners creeping people the fuck out. There have been complaints and we are all tired of you, so GTFO, plz or fer chrissakes, stop being so fucking annoying. And seriously? If any of you ever touch me, I'm breaking your fucking arm.

It's things like this that sometimes make me want to tell them all to go fuck themselves and never go to the damn place again.

*sigh* So...BPAL. I got outbid on al ot I really wanted and I can't afford to bid more, so I'm SOL there. Just going to have to keep an eye out for another lot with De Sade in it, I guess. I'm currently bidding on one containing Whip, Vice, Twenty One and Penny Dreadful, among others. I highly doubt I'll get it, but it's worth a try. I suppose.

I am so effing tired and annoyed and blah at the moment. I think I'm going to go to sleep now and see if I wake up feeling any less homicidal.

Okay, so, there's this awesome new BioWare game out called Dragon Age: Origins. I am getting it today (Joker figure plus cool new fantasy game? BEST DAY-BEFORE-MY-BIRTHDAY EVER!:)) and by all accounts it is made of win and awesome. But are we hearing about this? Are we hearing about the six different character origin options and the degree of customisation your character has or how Zevran for some reason sounds like Antonio Banderas? NO.
This is because a good chunk of the internet is having a collective fit of apoplexy over how YOU CAN HAVE TEH DURRRTY GHEY SEXZZ0RS WITH ZEVRAN OH MY JEEBUS! Seriously, guys? It's optional. That means, for those of you out there on the intertubes who don't understand long words, that you. do not. have. to fuck. the elf. Guess what? You can have lesbian sex with another character and het sex, too. No-one cares about that though, because it is clearly not as bad as the EVIL HOMOSEKSHALS! Holy shit, you gaiz, this might, like, make guys turn gay or some shit, right? Cos you know that you can ttly catch teh ghey from playing a vidya game where the character has an option to be other than completley ubermasculine and unquestionably hetrosekshual.
Shut the fuck up, guys. No-one is making you play that option, you have to go through a bunch of dialogue and choose the right options for it to even happen, and seriously, if you feel your heterosexuality or religious beliefs or whatever threatened by it, PLAY ANOTHER FUCKING GAME, yeah? ALso, if you haven't played the game andareoly going by hearsay about TEH DURRRTY GHEY SEX. Fuck off. Better yet, play the game. This scene you're so worried about? It's not explicit. There are no dangly bits, no shots of penetration, and lots of fading to black. The most you get to see is kissing, groping and mostly-nakedness. (And some fucking weird music to, uh...set the mood, maybe? I dunno. Sweeping, epic video game music more fit for LOTR or somthing, not the background to pretty much public interspecies (or same species if you'ran elf) buttsex. It's odd.)
Well done with the mass-homophobia and double standards there, internet. Girl-on-girl is hot but guy-on-guy is ew? Nice job being open-minded, losers. Here's something that might shock you: there are gay gamers. :O There are also lesbian and bisexual gamers. There are also heterosexual gamers who like seeing something other than: See Hero. See Hero slay dragon. See Hero bang two women in sex minigame complete with controller shaking rumble pack action (I'm looking at you, God Of War). The fuck's wrong with once in a while seing: See Hero. See Hero slay dragon. See Hero bang elf dude in a tent?
Also, Jimmy Kimmel: Fuck off. You're not clever, kthxbai.
Oh, BioWare, how ILU guys and your awesomeness and ability to piss off the homophobic nerds. Don't ever change. <3

You know, I'm fairly sure this is 2009, but there are some days I think we've all been transported back in time a few decades. :/ Every time I see a stupid, hateful person trying to justify discrimination, every time I see "I'm not racist but I don't believe in mixing races", every time I see someone like the family that names their kid something like Adolf Hitler and then proclaims that they aren't white supremacists, every time I see someone spouting bullshit about gays and lesbians and quoting Leviticus and that godawful stupid line "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve", every time I see a photo of the Westboro Baptist Church people and the other braindead bigots of their ilk, I have to wonder what decade we're living in and if we've actually learned anything in the past century or so. It makes me genuinely sad to know that there are still such idiots in the world, honestly.
The things that made me post this:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091016/ap_on_re_us/us_lesbian_yearbook_flap;_ylt=AmHbsGw_3elm401v5a2LlucEq594;_ylu=X3oDMTNka3BxMW5iBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMDkxMDE2L3VzX2xlc2JpYW5feWVhcmJvb2tfZmxhcARjY29kZQNtb3N0cG9wdWxhcgRjcG9zAzQEcG9zAzQEc2VjA3luX3RvcF9zdG9yaWVzBHNsawNsZXNiaWFuc3R1ZGU
Alesbian girl is being denied the right to be photographedin a tux for her yearbook photo because 'it's traditional' for girls to wear dresses and boys to wear tuxes for said photos. This is not the first time such a thing has happened, and I think it is utter bullshit. Why the hell is it so difficult to allow person to wear what they want for a photo or a prom? 'S not like the big bad queer chick is going to hurt anyone by showing up in a tux.


And then there's this gem, which is the source of the "I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way." quote. And of course there's that oft-repeated argument of 'Look! ' have black friends! I let them use my bathroom and everything! I can't possibly be racist!" *facepalm* No, of course not. :/

Some days I get very, very tired of this country and its attitudes, of the hatred disguised as politics and justified as faith and the misquoting and bastardisation of books that preach tolerance and love, and especially of the hypocritical so-called faithful who haven't actually bothered to read them and follow the examples set by the people in them. It isn't jsut these two stories; it's the other I read all the time and the overall sense that we haven't made a huge amount of progress in the last several decades.
There are days when the future looks very bleak indeed.
