That’s where Game Freak/Nintendo fucked up. They fucked up when they created Gallade to be the male counterpart, but left in the fact and possibility of FUCKING MALE GARDEVOIR! (plural)
Oh well. At least the artwork for the characters isn’t “Creepy Mew Fetuses” and “Rapeface Ditto” from the…
why the hell would you post this in the gallade tag nobody even cares about your shit opinion on male gardevoir.
And how is what they’re saying even Fridge Logic? 8T For it to be Fridge Logic that would imply that there’s something wrong with the idea of male Gardevoir. But there’s not. Just because Gallade was added doesn’t mean that now Male Gardevoir are obsolete. I don’t see how this person can even come to that conclusion. It only makes sense if you’re a sexist pig.
Besides that, this person really just needs to shut the fuck up about this issue. I don’t understand how it’s STILL an issue. After all these years. seriously. Even IF you don’t like it, and you disagree with it, who gives a fuck? No one cares that your little fap fantasies are ruined by the thought of a fictional video game creature being male as well as female.

Sure, no problem. It’s a little thing called human empathy. More people should really try it out.
Also, I’m sure lots of people will tell me something along the lines of “Oh, but Saya, why on earth would you defend a pedophile”
I dunno. Why would any decent person want to defend anyone who has a potentially hurtful mental sickness?
I think it’s time for me to weigh in on an issue I see floating around lately. Is pedophilia a sexual orientation?
Before anyone even answers the question the impulse is to make sure we’re not associated with it or like it in any way. This reaction comes very strongly from the LGBTQ…
WHAT THE FUCK
Wait, but isn’t this person saying people should be more receptive to treatment for pedophiles so they can stop being pedophiles? It doesn’t sound like they’re encouraging it.
IDK but the way I see it they’re being sympathetic toward pedophiles and being that I was almost in that place it just grosses me out ajdfjsake
ok. I actually have to weigh in on this. I have a dear friend whom I’ve lived with before who is a pedophile. And though it’s not a secret, I haven’t exactly shared this with everyone, I’ve been sexually abused as a child, so I think I have at least a little bit of my own view on this issue.
First off, I’d like to say that I am not, I amnot,defending Child Molesters in any way.
Because there is a difference between someone being a pedophile, and someone being a child molester. I’ve had several deep discussions with this friend of mine, and I’ve come to a few personal stances.
Not all pedophiles are Child Molesters. Not all Pedophiles WILL Molest a child. Not all Pedophiles would have sex with a child, even given the chance that they wouldn’t get caught, and under the impression that it was “consensual”. Just because someone is a pedophile, doesn’t make them a sick, evil monster.
Now, I have no love for Child Molesters. People who have actively abused children sexually. But I also recognize that pedophilia is a sickness. Is it an orientation? Honestly, I don’t know. The fact that someone could claim to be born attracted to children doesn’t really make sense to me. Either that or I don’t want it to make sense to me.
I honestly don’t know where I was going with this… but I don’t think you should hate “Pedophiles”. Yes, when someone molests a child, it is a horrible, despicable act. And we have laws in place to punish them. And I believe they should be punished to the full extent of the law for their actions.
But I also believe that they need help. Not hate. Even the ones who do abuse a child. And though this won’t be a popular opinion, the fact is that it’s still a crime that hurts someone. Just like assault. Just like Murder. Just like Arson, or rape, or any other crime that hurts another human being.
But as a society, we have a tendency to throw away anyone who’s committed a crime in general. Rather than try to help them, because something’s wrong with them, their mind, their thinking, we’d be more comfortable if they just died in a ditch. That’s the easy way out. Trust me. Wishing someone who hurt you would just vanish off the face of the earth and never hurt you again is so much easier than hoping they get help, and that they become a better person, and that MAYBE they might end up helping far more people than they ever hurt. Yeah that’s a gamble, I guess… but still. That’s my personal opinion.
And yes. Sometimes, I wish the person who hurt me would just die. I do. But I’m also a decent enough person that, if they got help, and they truly changed for the better, and they went about their life trying to help people, I could forgive them, at the very least.
I’m not saying “Be nice to Child Molesters.” If someone commits a crime, they need to be punished for it.
What I’m saying is that people should have a little more understanding about why people do the things they do, instead of thinking “God that person is sick and should die” when what they did is something that, for a lot of people, they might just be one missed therapy session away from doing the same thing. Most people who commit a crime probably never thought that they would do that one day.
I don’t know. Maybe I’m just stupid and delusional. But I’ve lived with and known a Pedophile who is a good person and would never actually hurt a child, even given the chance. And I’ve overcome my own abuse. So, yeah. Take that how you will, I suppose.
i don’t think i’ve ever agreed with anything more than what this man is saying
watch this. seriously
yes yes yes yes yes
this is amazing
this guy is so sick
I needed this right now. Anyone taking finals needs this right now.
I’m about to turn 30. I could have been valedictorian when I graduated High School but I was too lazy to complete the forms. I have a Bachelor’s from DeVry, where I left with an average 3.2 carrying an average course load of 18 credit hours (peak 24, nadir 14). I also have an Associate’s from a local college, and I am Phi Theta Kappa there.
Here’s what I can tell you.
No employer has ever asked for my GPA. No employer ever gave a SHIT about my grades. DeVry only cared about my ACT score, and my Bachelor’s lost me jobs because I was “overqualified”. Now that I’m using my Associate’s, no one cares about my grades, or degree. My employer cares about A) my hours, B) my practical quals.
Unless you’re pushing for the Ivy League, no one is going to care about your grades. Ever. Amen. So I say to you this: 3.0 or above works for most but honestly, just get a good score on your ACT or SAT (and remember, you can retake it!). College is not a guarantee of a good life or even a paycheck. If anything it’s a near-guarantee of crippling debt.
THAT DOES NOT MEAN DO NOT GO, but for god’s sake do your research on your degree. Know what to expect. Colleges are marketing departments and will tell you sweet lies to get your money because college doesn’t care and won’t coddle you.
DO SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE. Find a way to make money in a way that you enjoy. It might not be the thing you enjoy most, but if you like it and it pays for what you enjoy most, well. That might be good enough.
Read. Travel. Take risks. Fuck up, try again. But enjoy it.
