Made it home safe from dragoncon \o/
"why are you upset with jontron now when he has a history of using slurs and having offensive humor"
how about because a lot of us once felt pressured to go along with or at least never object to any use of slurs because it is so normalized in gamer lingo. And many of us being non-male or non-white or non-straight or non-neurotypical, etc etc, we were already unwelcome in gamer spaces to begin with and we learned not to rock the boat if we wanted to fit in at all.
But over time we’ve learned the power and importance of calling people out not just for people like yourself but for every minority that gets treated like trash in gaming settings. We learned we don’t have to take this shitty behavior from neckbeard gamer dudebros anymore.
at least that’s how I feel about it.
Hi dragoncon friends, here are some of the supplies I’ll be bringing. If you find yourself in need of any of this stuff over the weekend, give me a call/text. (If you know me and don’t have my number I’ll give it to you privately)
This is mostly for the roomies but I expect I’ll still have plenty leftover if anyone else is in desperate need of a snack.
- Yogurt/Granola bars (Strawberry and Blueberry)
- Bottled Water x6
- Brown Sugar Cinnamon Poptarts
- If you’re lucky the Sweet & Salty Chex Mix might survive the car trip up
- Might have a couple sodas
- Pepto tablets
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sewing kit with needles, thread, snaps, clasps, anything else easy to pack in the kit
- Safety Pins
- Stitch Witch
- Spirit gum & remover
- Make-up sponges
- Tape (Masking and clear)
- Any other useful cosplay repair things that’ll fit in the box
