“There are no trigger warnings in real life”
“The real world is cruel, get over it.”
My boyfriend is triggered by Christmas and Christmas music. We were in a restaurant, and Christmas music was playing, and he started panicking so he went outside for a cigarette. The manager of the restaurant overheard him saying he had to get out, and changed the music over for the rest of the time we were there. There are safe spaces in the real world. People are nicer than you think. And bullshit people who try to tell you to get over your triggers, ain’t shit.
people who say shit like this are egotistical and selfish. ignore them. there is goodness in the world, even if we have to be the ones giving it to ourselves.
I’m Jewish and I play Fallout 4.
I had a mod recommended to me called Constructable Crosses. It’s a bunch of different kinds of Christian religious iconography so you can build a church in your settlements if you want to.
I asked if it wouldn’t be too much trouble, maybe, since the author had another update planned, if maybe he could add a Magen David to hang outside a synagogue? And I would pay him?
I expected that I might be ignored or told no. At best, there would be one “okay” example of a Magen David and I’d use it because it was all that was available.
This dude went out and built an entire mod. And refused payment. He actually learned how to make a model to make a really gorgeous menorah, and put together a stunning range of chanukkiyot so you can, if you want, “light candles” for Chanukkah in your game. (And yes, I actually did this, it was fun.) He put together some wall hangings of the Ten Commandments. He made over a hundred kippah models so you can wear one as long as you have a vanilla hairstyle. The only thing the mod lacks that even the poorest synagogue would try to have, and I have maintenance rights on the mod so when I learn to make models I’ll be adding it, is a sefer Torah.
(Ironically, there is no Magen David. But since you can put up a literal actual menorah, that point is moot.)
People are kind. People are good. You just have to find them.
