An abyss normally would suck things in or be bottomless, and this is the abyss where stuff I find goes, and its pretty deep so thats accurate... Right?

Guild wars 2 might be starting to pull me in…

I KNOW!!! IT’S SUCH A GOOD GAME!!! I played GW alot (I beat 3/4 campaigns on my Dervish when he didn’t have max level armor. I only realized that about 1/3 of the way through his Eye of the North run xD) and I’ve been playing GW2 since launch

Its really sad cause I bought the game around launch, but I just couldn’t get into it. I’m beginning to think it was cause my first character was a ranger…

'Self censorship' is not problematic. It's not the bad kind of censorship it's worth overthrowing a government for. 'Self censorship' is just making a choice not to be a dick.

I could go around calling people ‘fag’ all the time. When I was fourteen, that’s exactly what I did. Then I learned that it made my gay friends feel less comfortable around me, and less safe generally. So I stopped. It was a hard habit to break, but I was hurting people and I didn’t realize it. I wouldn’t make the choice to hurt people like that, casually and pointlessly, but without the education I didn’t even know I was making that choice.

The same here. These videos and the outpouring of support around them are largely women saying ‘this stuff makes me feel unwelcome’ which is hopefully not what anybody was trying to do. But now that they know, I should hope they consider those choices with a more appropriate gravity in the future.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
