I like reptiles and have strong opinions about some things. This blog is mostly about those things.

Probably the worst part of owning, admiring, and caring for snakes is that telling anyone that you do opens this doorway for snake related “stories”.

Almost all of them focusing on the death, harm and, fear of snakes.

I do my best to educate others and teach them what fascinating, highly specialized dorks they are at every opportunity. But that doesn’t make it any less disheartening to hear stores of people chopping the heads off of something I care a lot about.

And I also find it equally disturbing that those stories are considered appropriate and relevant. And are often told with no remorse. It’s literally the first thing that comes to the persons mind. Like, “Oh, you like snakes? This story has a snake being brutally murdered due to irrational fear. It has a snake in it. So you’ll like that.”

No???? No I don’t??????????

Signal boost for GamePhobias, a wiki-style website dedicated to categorizing games based on content and trigger warnings. Users can either view content warning categories to find games that do and don’t contain the triggering content, or search for specific games to see exactly what content warnings are attached to that title (as well as brief, almost exclusively non-graphic descriptions as to specific scenes/levels containing that content).

It’s a very, very new wiki (IIRC it launched late August) and so its offerings are very paltry right now, and I would seriously encourage anyone with experience with games, wikis, and/or both to contribute however they can.

I’m writing up a review for FFXIV right now, and I seriously encourage anyone who can do this to help out!! This is SUPER helpful to people with triggers and I’m going to use it in the future.

Don’t ignore this, I know gamer culture doesn’t care about mentally ill people but you guys should try to be better than that.

wow, just skimming through the page for TESV: Skyrim really brought it to my attention just how messed up that game is. in psychologically, emotionally damaging ways….. huh.

there’s nothing more exhausting than reading a couple dozen pages of a book discussing what it is and isn’t going to discuss within the rest of the book.
