I'm gonna study more of their culture though I don't wanna be converted because I used to be baptised in a catholic church, but me being weak in learning on other areas not gaming because gaming I learn really good but when it comes to society I'm dumber than a rock since my uncle manipulated my family into thinking trump is great I'm like ok then regurgitate whatever my uncle says because I view him differently and he's latino but mostly for some reason he votes republican? He gets payed $100 or more per hour. Why is he a republican?

Guess he's an idiot. And stoicism isn't as easy as it sounds.

When gay marriage was legal, My uncle had a meltdown like no other wanted gays not have marriage laws.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Stupid AND homophobic? What a combo. XD



I haven't told him I sleep with men, But I don't want him to go Pyscho on me? I did have sex with men when I was younger I still do but he doesn't know? And my mom gets meltdowns if she finds out I had sex with men. She's into Christianity.

Sounds like you need to get away from your family.



Let's talk about other things and not my family, like how the world is messed up again. And ignore my social skills (not item hustling) but Friends IRL (not Online because I do have online friends).But In Real Life I'm super sad and lonely and get liked by stranger men oddly just the few gay ones in real life in candy stores.

I thought of something, but I doubt it'd work.

Just letting you all know that I've given up on the world. Endangered species are dropping like flies. Sea levels are going to drown most of us. Chinese children make pretty much all our toys. Tyrants control our favorite video games. Rich people survive while the rest of us practically starve. Police brutality is normal. Mass shootings are increasing. Just fuck the world, let's just do whatever we want because nothing matters.

"Sea levels are going to drown most of us."

Most projections show a sea level rise of less than 1 meter in the next 100 years, the worst scenario is a sea level rise of 2.2 meters in the next 100 years: https://sealevel.nasa.gov/ipcc-ar6-sea-level-projection-tool?type=global

Which altitude do you live? Sea levels won't drown most of us within our lifespan. We'll have other problems (f.e. if the gulf stream int the Atlantic breaks down, increase of extreme weather conditions...), but mass drowning won't be one of them.

"Chinese children make pretty much all our toys." - Do they? I'm sure, there are more Chinese adult workers making our toys than Chinese children workers.

"Police brutality is normal." - Not in most Western countries.

"Mass shootings are increasing." - Not a big problem in most countries.

Sea level predictions, like almost all climate change predictions, have been found to overstate the rate of change nearly all the time.  So, I'd bet we see a good bit less than 1 meter over the next 100 years.

There's not very much child labor in China anymore.

Police brutality is a real problem in many western countries.  But, it's still isn't super widespread. There are many other very serious problems with modern policing. But the likelihood that you or a loved one are going to get your ass kicked or killed by police is still extraordinarily low.

Mass shootings are not increasing anywhere that I'm aware of.  The only thing that has changed is that, in the US (and now other countries since much of the world follows the US' lead on media matters), we now call anything with three or more victims a "mass shooting" and they get tons of media attention.  So, it seems like there are a lot.  But, there are objectively fewer incidents of gun violence in the US now than at most points in the past.  

So yeah, police brutality is the only one of these issues that I see as a real, acute problem.  On the other hand, humanity has seen a sustained, long-term decrease in the number of people living in abject property and dying from starvation or dealing with food insecurity. Humans in general are in the midst of an extremely long-term, sustained, widespread increase in standards of living, life expectancies, and many other great things. There truly has never been a better time to be a human on planet Earth. 



Hey mate, just offering some unsolicited advice. You can’t change everything in the life but take solace in those things that can bring you joy. I hope the apathy subsides but don’t let yourself succumb to everything negative in your life. I spent way too much of my life focusing on the negatives. I get down sometimes now but you can’t let it ruin the good moments.

I reckon your mum knows. It is all making sense now why she told you not to have kids and I think she used doesn't want to be a grandmother as an excuse. It isn't for selfish reasons, its for the sake of you breaking a woman's heart when she finds out you really into men. NO woman wants to be that woman who been married 5-10 years then suddenly their husband says well actually I am gay and only married you out of fear what my family would do to me. This behaviour belongs in the 50s-90s. World is tolerant enough now that you should just come out of the closet.
