Is it possible to have players pass a basic quiz on the rules of the game? Tongue

Of course. Survivor's my favourite.

And damn, is Josh ever a cutie. It's going to get awful when the homophobia comes out though. Usually it's not an issue, but I see it brewing this season.

I actually agree with the Labor guys on this. Sure, I hate hifly on gay issues, but being SoEA has nothing to do with that. The nominee, assuming he has the views I think he does, has my potential support as long as the confirmation hearing goes well and he clearly states what he wants to do with the role.

As fun as politicizing everything is, I just don't agree.

So when African countries pass laws criminalizing homosexuality and make it punishable by death, what's our top diplomat going to say? It's very relevant. Atlasia will either be a champion for the rights of everyone, or we won't be. And if our SoEA is not a champion for the rights of everyone at home, why on earth should we expect him to be a champion for the rights of everyone overseas?

I'm thankful the president has nominated a person who understands the job and will take it seriously. I lost the spark for it after things began to go downhill... maybe Mr. Cranberry will find it again.

I support the nominee.

Does she really object to burqas, or is she just gullible? Generally, the latter is more common on social media.

She's not gullible. She's a bigot. I've called her out on it before and she's invoked all sorts of nonsense about the need to defend Christianity and blah, blah, blah.

Alternatively you could treat her like a human being instead of a political enemy.

I think she sacrificed that personal privilege when she decided that I'm not entitled to being treated like a human being myself based on something I can't control.

I wouldn't give them the satisfaction of isolation, but I would find every opportunity to mock or humiliate them.

In fact, I'm thinking of volunteering to say grace, just for her benefit:

Dear God,

On this Thanksgiving, we thank you for our friends and family, and for being able to share this opportunity together to celebrate the things and people we love.

Thank you for the food we are about to eat, and for letting us live in a country where we have this luxury; we know that in too many places around the world, people are hungry. We are also thankful for living in a country where everyone is free to express their religious beliefs, free from discrimination based on age, race, gender, or who we love, and free to pursue our dreams as we see fit. Please help each of us give thanks for these things not just on Thanksgiving, but as often as we can.

In Jesus's name we pray,

Amen.

My aunt shared this photo on Facebook. Racist and homophobic nonsense are commonplace on this woman's timeline. I hate it. I don't want my mom to invite her to our Thanksgiving dinner next month. Should she?

PAPOY?

Post A Picture Of Yourself, aka Creepfest 2014, formerly known as "PAPOY 2k14: One of the premier gay hookup websites"

Oh yeah. No change there. The relevant posters made their promiscuity pretty well known even before that.

See, not all of us gays have the luxury of getting married at 21. Or, you know, at all.

I would also recommend exploring your options for SoIA. I will hold the seat until I believe you've found a suitable replacement (unless you want to just fire me), but I'm obviously no longer interested in contributing anything of value.

I'm always at least somewhat interested in every upcoming presidential election, but I admit that 2016 isn't shaping up to be too interesting.

The Republican primaries will be a circus, some un-presidential fool will be the nominee, and Hillary will win the general in a landslide. Is this news?

That doesn't appear to be a card set, Snowstalker...

Also, I'm bitter, but this whole thing got kinda shitty.

Yeah, a lot of people have really bad colds here. The temperature seems to have dropped 10 degrees all of a sudden, and it's thrown a lot of people off.

In other news, me and my guyfriend are doing well. Being happy is kind of nice. Smiley

Okay, I've been struggling with how to approach this, so I'm just gonna be frank. I'm not happy doing the job of the GM. I like executing legislation, working with the regions, and responding to stories from the GM. I don't like providing time-consuming estimates after nine-hour days on campus when I have more important readings to do for class.

If I'm doing the things I love (see the shortlist above) it's fine. If I'm doing "ew, work," it's kind of not. So I would like to see a GM chosen very soon. In the meantime, I'm not sure what to do, as I honestly have no desire to put together this earthquake report. Honest truth. If it's a non-negotiable duty, I might not be around as SoIA for too much longer.

The game really comes to a standstill when there's no one to keep time. And although we definitely need a GM, I'm sorry... I didn't sign up to be that guy.

I mean, I have very little authority on coming out, but when I make the full leap, I don't think I'll want to do it in a costume where people might get confused. "Are you actually gay, or are you just dressing up as a gay character?"

Best of luck however you do it, but... I want to be 100% me when I let people know. I understand what you're going for, but I feel like, for me, it might complicate things.
