    I need to turn off my brain’s predictive text. I just read “handgun” as “gluten”.

You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.

imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun

"look kid we’re a ridiculous distance from a bunch of broken rocks how could you possibly be bored this is totally an appropriate vacation spot for someone this age."

Ah, fuck. Shit like this always gets to me, the tired old technophobe spiel and maybe it’s because it’s so rampant in my field (I work in outdoor education), but it just starts feeling so goddamn derivative after a while, nouveau hipsters who think the world is ending because kids play too many video games.
But what we’re missing is that this kid’s parents bought him his SP and a copy of Leaf Green (the employee at the game store said it would be perfect for him) so that he would shut up on the plane ride over and not bother them in the hotel, imagining that as soon as they touched down the kid would put the thing down and appreciate all the castles and grass and cafes and operas and rocks and ~*~culture~*~, because that’s what culture and history are, right? A bunch of old rocks.
What they missed is this kid staying up way past his bedtime the night before their plane flew out on message boards and chat rooms trying to find out which is the best starter, finally settled on a Squirtle and named it Rocky, and right now while his parents are appreciating rocks he and Rocky have got to save the whole world from Team Rocket because he’s a hero and that’s what heroes do and he’s so invested in this story and this world, he thinks he might have found the place where Machops live, why should he care about a guide droning on about Romans and a bunch of old people taking pictures?But please, go ahead and take the Gameboy from him, break it in half and remind him that you spent A LOT on this vacation, and HOW DARE HE. You will FORCE him to ENJOY his GODDAMN VACATION because it’s REAL LIFE. Wonder why he’s so upset, you’re the one who spent money on the thing? All he invested in it was time and emotion, and those things are definitely less important than money, when you’re eight. Wonder why he’s so disconnected from education, when you’ve managed to turn it into a punishment, a deprivation, a source of misery? Go on and repeat the tired old technophobe line until you’re red in the face, share it on Facebook and reblog it on Tumblr and retweet it on Twitter: nobody but you knows how to live ~*~REAL LIFE~*~ because we’re so busy exploring imaginary worlds.
Kids don’t just need to be taught when to use devices, we as their parents and guardians also need to be taught why they use devices. If a kid is more invested in Kanto than Stonehenge, why? How can we change our approach so kids ~*~appreciate real history~*~? And if not, can’t we just accept and appreciate that this kid will go back to the third grade, say “Yeah, I saw Stonehenge, it was neat, but who wants to trade a Haunter for my Machoke?”

the commentary!

That was quite possibly the most effective argument on the subject I’ve ever read!  Thank you, that was an eye-opening perspective… even as one who plays video games all the time, I don’t think I could have come to the same conclusion.

yo but young adults who do this shit though

Yo but parents who do this shit.

    Anonymous said: I'm gonna go on anonymous because I'm a little wary of saying this. But I have/had a dark-skinned elf character and people I've commissioned white washed them/ignored some other refs I've had and made them inconsistent because of not wanting to portray the character that way. I get embarrassed of saying anything to artists when that happens.

    elementsheep:

    mad-maddie:

    No NO noooo! Anon-san always, always stand your ground, especially when you’re PAYING someone to draw YOUR character! I don’t even care if it’s an elf skin colour thing. If the horns aren’t shaped right, you need to let the artist know! If the breasts aren’t big enough, if the body is too thin, if the expression is wrong, the eye colour, the scar placement, ANYTHING ya gots tah say something! 9/10 artists want to PLEASE their clients and make a quality product! Don’t be afraid of back-and-forth repoire with your artist, that’s a big part of the commission process, there is no way to get around that sometimes.

    If someone is not able, or willing, to draw something in a way you’d like, then seek out an artist who can and will. Do not buy and settle for burnt steak at one restaurant when another restaurant will re-cook the order you paid for.

    I feel like if anyone white-washed my characters I would literally call Satan to earth to eradicate them and their progeny from existence.

    No, but I fuckin hate erasure and “artistic license” in commissions.  As an artist I try my absolute hardest to get my client’s vision across, not what I personally want to draw/depict it as.  Because you know, that’s the right freakin thing to do.

    On one hand artistic license can extend to how dark they look because of shading, lighting and various other things. It can be difficult to match up if someone’s more yellow-white or pink-white, just as it can be hard to tell if someone has a more red-dark skintone or more of a yellow-dark one.

    That said, ignoring that a character is dark-skinned is just not cool.

    Also, if you’re gonna literally call Satan can you pass along his number because I’m looking to make a deal…
