@ssumingfrog@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 the person who posted that screencap did, and my tweet was an attempt to sarcastically point out how stupid that take was. if my tweet made it look like i'm saying that owning a cell phone and buying hogwarts legends are remotely comparable, i have failed as a writer. (2/2)
@ssumingfrog@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 thats not the argument im even making
im saying that while both phone companies and jk rowling have done shitty things, owning a phone is a lot more important in the long run than buying hogwarts legacy is
im not even the one who made the comparison in the first place-(1/2)
@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 Yes it is a WANT, but it fulfills a NEED for societal communication that is innately desired by humanity.
You don't need a phone in the same way you don't need toilet paper. While technically you could survive without it, you really really REALLY don't want to go without.
@RichyAndrews23@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 It’s not an addiction, it’s recognition that our society has advanced technology and that the average joe is expected to own a cell phone, so it’s not a surprise that most people have a smart phone.
@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 a phone is absolutely a necessity when it comes to social contact in the modern era, and to not treat it as such is old-fashioned at best and delusional at worst. (2/2)
@GAVITRAXart@LeumasLeu@Bolverk15 how are people supposed to get in contact with you quickly then? mail you a letter? drive to your house? in the digital age being able to keep in contact with people at a moments notice is key. while I’m not under any delusions that everyone needs the NEW IPHONE GIGASHIT MAX(1/2)
Marie Kondo gotta be the most unlikely polarising figure of my lifetime, all that lady said was get rid of shit youre not happy with and I swear the media in this country has spent half a decade trying to find new gotchas to throw at her every week, it's beyond bizarre
Every few months a tweet goes viral talking about how they’re tired of so many sex scenes in media nowadays and how unnecessary they are and damn, it’s weird to hear sentences from 90s moral guardians spouted by 19 year olds today while we’re in the most sexless era of media
Man, I don't care how good you are technically, if you have *one* gimmick, and decide to double down on that and spend hours on an illustration where said gimmick is offensive, on the *day* it's the most offensive, maybe you can get fucked.
Tyre Nichols is going to be a big political litmus test. His death is just as outrageous as George Floyd’s, but the offending officers are now Black. Do you view police brutality as individual acts of bigotry, or as the natural symptom of a fundamentally anti-Black police system?
you know, when missouri passes the laws banning trans women from being in public in a few months, most cis people I know will just go “awww” and then continue about their day
I just wish they cared more man
