    [–] If you could only ever play games that start with the same letter, what letter would you choose? peanutbutterjams 1 points ago in boardgames

    C was my pick as well. Castles of Burgundy, Castles of Mad King Ludwig and Cacao.

    (Especially if I can fudge the Cure and Carmen Sandiego in there)

    [–] What was your "DAMN, I'm getting old!" moment? peanutbutterjams 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Watching the intense moral outrage of a generation and not being swept up in it.

    I get it - I was that age at one point too - and I understand its benefits. I'm just at the point where I can also understand the harm it can do and why a moderate viewpoint is most beneficial to society.

    [–] #metoo I am having some sympathy for the Devil. peanutbutterjams 4 points ago in Egalitarianism

    Mayim Bialik was asked "How are you going to stop your boys from being like Harvey Weinstein"...Much like "Teach boys not to rape", this narrative assumes, without question, that boys are born as moral deviants, and it's only the intervention of women that prevents their in-born nature from hurting anyone else.

    Personally, that's fucking scary. Ten more years of that narrative, and you'll start seeing legal discrimination against men. (thankfully, though, it won't be sexism, because you can't be sexist against men...)

    Let's teach children about the corruption of power. That's the real culprit, not someone's race, gender or sexuality.

    [–] Thoughts on Too Many Bones? peanutbutterjams 5 points ago in boardgames

    I'm glad that, for the price, the components are great. However, a game that's wildly expensive because it has 'luxury components' are kind of like a flipped house: I didn't want marble floors or double sinks in the en-suite so now it's just another perfectly good house that I can't afford.

    And, much like flipped houses, the affluent are going to greatly influence the market and affordability for everyone else.

    [–] Game of the Week, Redux: Concordia peanutbutterjams 3 points ago in boardgames

    To everyone that loves, luvs, hearts Concordia:

    Would you suggest the base game for someone who is primarily going to play it with two?

    In other words, I'm not interested in buying the expansion just so I can play it two player.

    For some context, we enjoy Libertalia and COMKL 2 player because there's less chaos.

    We like Istanbul 2 player but definitely think it's better as 3 player game because there's more tension. I suspect this means Concordia will fall a little flat but I'd really appreciate some feedback from Concordia-lovers in this regard.

    [–] Two things I’ve decided since buying Pandemic... peanutbutterjams 1 points ago in boardgames

    Yeah Burgle Bros is wonderful at creating shared, memorable experiences.

    [–] Two things I’ve decided since buying Pandemic... peanutbutterjams 1 points ago in boardgames

    It's not the best 2 player game so I'd play it with more if you can.

    [–] It appears Rahdo has rated Charterstone 8.561 on his BGG game list! peanutbutterjams 3 points ago in boardgames

    Our best critical reviewer (imo), JonGetsGames, didn't recommend Great Western Trail either. He does have a nice explanation of why, though, so you can decide if his reasoning is relevant to you.

    [–] Are you guys SURE that The Root isn't Satire written by white people? - 10 Simple and Subtle and Easy Things I Do Every Day to Fight White Supremacy peanutbutterjams 3 points ago in TumblrInAction

    It's like a neighbour who's always blasting shitty music at ungodly hours. Mostly everyone gets pissed off, except for the shitty people who like shitty music.

    So there's a revolt, and other people commandeer the stereo...and start playing different shitty music at ungodly hours.

    You. Are. Not. Improving. The. Situation.

    [–] My different opinions are ABUSE peanutbutterjams 3 points ago in TumblrInAction

    PC culture was about having respect and empathy for people different for you. It was a good thing.

    Then it got fetishized into being a religion where everyone other than the 'norm' (a myth) was better than the norm, thereby perpetuating the exact crimes the Left was formed to combat.

    [–] It’s not the women, just the MEN peanutbutterjams 3 points ago in TumblrInAction

    Pretty sure it was human beings.

    I genuinely appreciate that the Left has created space where we can contextualize POC pover and substance abuse. It's the definition of progressive, because it deepens our understanding of the issue. That's what progress is.

    However, I'm also genuinely confused why men can't rate the same treatment. Where's our context? Statistically speaking, everyone who's alive owes their life to a man who killed to protect their offspring. Violence was the definition of genetic success.

    That's fucked up. It's inter-generational trauma on a millennial scale. We didn't choose it. It's the baggage of sexual dimorphism.

    Change takes time. History is an atrocity committed upon ourselves, not IdPol Identity [A] vs. IdPol Identity [B]-[Z].

    Step 1: Hate the past, not each other. Step 2: Accept the past, and each other.

    Can we judge the past for their context? Isn't that a refutation of the liberal ideal? Couldn't we value the mental architecture that liberals have painstakingly created for the past 50 years, and instead empathize with their context, while at the same time committing to improving it?

    [–] Watch out racist white women. GOD'S and GODDESSES are coming for you. peanutbutterjams 6 points ago in TumblrInAction

    How dare you hate our skin.

    Proceeds to do the same thing to white people.

    How dare you drench us in negative stereotypes?

    Proceeds to do the same thing to white people.

    History isn't a balance sheet.

    -2 + -2 = -4 fuck's sakes.

    I get it, though. How would you react if you were fed the same narrative, grown in the same culture? 'Hey, I can cultivate this rage inside me, and everything I say is fucking justified.' The euphoria

    I mean, I assume. I've never had the privilege.

    [–] Tumblr at its finest peanutbutterjams 5 points ago in TumblrInAction

    C'mon, grey avatar is clearly a troll.

    [–] Im not saying breastfeeding is rape, but... peanutbutterjams 20 points ago in TumblrInAction

    Breast feeding is the best feeding.

    I think we can acknowledge it's the best while we also acknowledge and empathize that some women cannot breastfeed, through no fault of their own. If we can internalize this simple complexity, breast milk banks should ensue.

    [–] Organizers behind armed white supremacist protest in Houston revealed as Russian peanutbutterjams 2 points ago in politics

    Academia is notably left-leaning and interacts with young men and women at a time in their life when they're electrified by new and exciting ideas. They are definitely indoctrinated into left-leaning ideas, although more by the culture of college, as influenced by the culture of academia. i.e., I don't think the situation is intentional, just the way things worked out, but it definitely exists.)

    Rush, on the other hand, is the greatest Canadian band ever clearly propaganda, a slightly less fervorous Goebbels.

    [–] Trump is guilty of conduct unbecoming a president peanutbutterjams 9 points ago in politics

    Yup, that's the test. Let's strip everything else, because this is the only evaluation worth our time.

    I don't care, and never have, about what your politics, gender, sexuality or race are.

    Can you talk to me about your ideas without insulting me? Can you listen to my ideas without insulting me?

    Great.

    Do you think every single person, regardless of race, religion, creed, gender, sexuality or race have an inherent right to a basic modicum of respect?

    Awesome.

    Now you can be over there, being a consumerist conservative, and I can be over here, being an anti-capitalist egalitarian, and we can still work together, for the betterment of ourselves and everyone else.

    Why?

    Because we've established trust. I know that you're basically a decent person, and you know that I'm basically a decent person and in that environment, ideas are no longer offensive. Collaborative thought coupled with a commitment to commonality leads to a healthier diversity of perspective, which leads to a healthier society.

    [–] Civil-Rights Protests Have Never Been Popular peanutbutterjams 6 points ago in TrueReddit

    Yes, how you say something matters a great deal. In most cases, I'd say it matters exactly the right amount.

    I was 20 once. The thrill of dismantling all that has gone before you with the moral sanction of your fellow tribe is a heady brew. Ultimately, though, it's just as destructive as attempting to conserve all that has gone before you.

    "I'm going to dismantle what you have" is a threat and tribal threats result in yet more tribalism. It doesn't create trust nor does it that there's room to work together. It says I'm going to increase marginalization to equalize suffering, rather than decrease marginalization to increase liberty.

    Everyone has to decide what's more important to them as individuals: the thrill of moral outrage or the tedium of being effective.

    Those on the Left who seek the former are Social Justice Warriors (and on the Right, Trump supporters). Everyone who's mindful of the latter is a social justice advocate and someone I, or you, or you, or you, or you, can work with.

    [–] Profs brag of tricking students into social justice classes peanutbutterjams -3 points ago in canada

    You mean people naturally respond to a discussion about justice when it doesn't use terminology to support a false 'victim / oppressor' narrative and judge people based on their immutable genetic traits?

    Shocker.
