  1. PremeditatedGirl liked a post in a topic by Ev. in Gender on AJSA   
    Thats actually the whole issue to begin with. Gender and physical sex are too very different things that far too many people use interchangeably. Sex is the body, gender is the mind. So you are right, you are not a different gender simply because you wish it or alter your appearance. You are whatever you are to begin with, the problem lies in the fact that if you are born with your gender and sex on opposite sides of the fence so to say, its just nothing but negative things until one addresses the issue and works to fix it which, given we can't change gender, means changing sex as best as possible. Its also not as simple as getting breast implants and surgeries, as many people seem to think. It involves years of hormone replacement therapy (which continue pretty much for life) that radically change and alter the body in a vast number of ways, most of which aren't even visible.
     
    As to the "no such thing" and "normally you don't declare yourself as something inbetween... (Unless you are intersex, that's another matter)" comments. People are different, most probably are all too willing to transition into their desired gender roles and then consider themselves female and never tell anyone who doesn't need to know about their trans history. Others are open about it and acknowledge where they came from, or even take the scientific mentality and consider things based on the physical body and birth. My point being anyways is that it is not something that is "inbetween". A transwomen is a women who also just happens to be trans. Same for transmen. Whether or not they want to acknowledge or be open about that side of things is another thing entirely.
     
    Gender is not a binary male or female system. Just because that is what society and the media and whatever else drill into everyones skulls, doesn't make it the truth. Gender is a spectrum, there are the two totally opposite ends but there is also the distance between those ends.

    Hey, I recently got back into Battlefield 3 after taking a hiatus after MAG closed. Is there still an AJSA presence on the game? If so, how do I get in on all of that?

    This is a re post to a more appropriate part of the forum about a BF3 platoon on AJSA as I think there could be a large amount of users that still play BF3 and maybe don't want BF4 until its been patched. I hope the counsel of AJSA can support BF3 as well

    Can we have a room on teamspeak for BF3 as BF4 still has a lot of issues as some BF fans might not want to buy into BF4 at the mo because of the terrible launch I am one of them. I found this Platoon that is not officially backed by the AJSA but wants to represent the AJSA on the BF3 front. I have joined so I can do some representing with tags. Some feedback and action could be good for the cause.

    Hopeful by me drawing attention to this might bring about some more platoon members eg raise awareness
     
    I think Server support is one thing for a game and Teamspeak is another. More games can be support through teamspeak as less bandwidth is used. This can give the council abetter idea as to what games to support on the server front. Just a thought

    Hello my fellow angry soldiers.
    Seeing that a lot of us still play Battlefield 3, I was surprised that there is no platoon for us in BF3.
    So I just made one. Here's the link to the platoon's page on EA Battlelog.
    Please note : I do not intend to organize any events (or "lead" the platoon in general) and I am not intentionally trying to become a higher-level member by doing this. I am just creating the platoon so that everyone can wear the [AJSA] tag inside BF3. If a higher-level member wants to take over the platoon, they're totally welcome to do so.
    So yeah, see you all on the battlefield!
     
    (Please note that my AJSA platoon is on PC only, hopefully we'll get platoons for X360 and PS3 once AJSA commanders take notice.)
     
    EDIT : I have only very recently realised that you can wear a clan tag without being in a platoon, I deeply apologize for being an ignorant retard. However, I'll just keep the platoon, whatever.

    OK . I love my pet and if I couldn't afford her care I'd make sure she went to a home that could.
    If you cant afford pets, much like kids, you shouldn't have them. (I don't care how hatful people may find me for this its my belief)
    Seriously, try and see if your parents can take custody of your dog or make an arrangement with your regular vet (if you have one) to see if you can make payments.
     
    Im not trying to be mean here, just realistic.
  10. PremeditatedGirl liked a post in a topic by Geist in Achievements/Trophies are they good for gaming?   
    I don't really care one way or another, but it's an ingenious implementation that I respect. Adding achievements to games is a subtle coercion to play the game marginally more than you might have without the incentive of the achievement. Think about it, if you're playing whatever game and you notice that to unlock this achievement, you only need a small amount more of something, you're more likely to pursue the achievement, thus adding to the play time. While this act in itself has relatively little value to most players, to the company it can translate to financial incentive. A lot of e-businesses do this because as it turns out, people who spend more time using your product or service tend to become returning customers for other products. One of my former professors helped with a study on this topic for a friend of his who ran an e-service, and following this model turned it into something now rather successful and famous.

    Would be cool if achievements/trophies unlocked some cool in-game stuff or other stuff (Mass Effect 3). But I like them regardless except for those ridiculous ones where you have to do the damn Easter Egg hunt looking for needles in a mile long haystack. 
  12. PremeditatedGirl liked a post in a topic by ViralBunny in Achievements/Trophies are they good for gaming?   
    Unless my achievements unlock extra content, like a harder version of the game (shooters sometimes do), or more content (ala early total war games) then i dont give two monkeys anymore, there was a time i played towards getting them all but then the fun went out of gaming and felt like grinding, i have MMOs for that.

    I'm sure there will be an update from Joe at somepoint, and there are posts already in the Kickstarter forum, but just letting the ones who are interested know that the Kickstarter campaign for the game The Mandate has got its funding!
    This is what the AJSA can help do, when we band together,I also have a huge interest in this game and from myself personally thank you to all involved helping this mission be a complete success!

    I don't think that every gamer has a problem, not even the most competitive ones.      What I can say to you is this...fuck them!  don't label yourself and  don't be intimidated by anyone... everyone has that fear, you just have to know how to handle it... takes time and balls like anything on this wretched earth. It is what it is man.   I don't really think socializing online is good or bad, it really depends on what you make of it. You can just chat with someone and never have to speak to that person again, or u can really become friends. Again the truth of the matter is what you make of every social encounter being  RL or Online.    As for me I would say I fall in the greyiishhh area of the Social Spectrum, I always evaluate people who I meet like they were bombs. Being an Optimist and a Realist at the same time gives me headaches, I know this world is a terrible/disgusting one and is one of the main reasons I don't like to meeting new people...but when it happens I tend to reach for the positive side of things....so there. Not much of a conclusion but it is what it is.

    Playing Splinter Cell 1 on hard. Under the saved name Knockout king. Obviously died lots. But go so good at knocking the bad guy out I managed to complete the game. The level with the hostages at the end with the automated gun turrets was the hardest. Had to save up thoses sticky shockers and the rubber coils. Where as on pandora tommorrow I hit a wall Television Free Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia where there are two gang ways the enimeies run accross to get to you. I gave up pretty badass. I think!
  16. Aridan liked a post in a topic by PremeditatedGirl in Are you religious?   
    If nobody imposes their beliefs on me I don't have a problem with them.
     Having any form of belief is terribly personal. It needs to be developed from ones self and not others. This is why I feel sorry for children in schools that are tied between religion and state. People are entitled to their beliefs but not to impose or spread there words to others I personally find it rude and imposing. Thats why I won't do it to others, as I had it done to me as a kid. As I would not wish it have done to myself. I will repects every one here!

    I struggle to make the effort to reach out and see my friends. Cos leaving the house to a place full of people is an intimidating unsure place its a big ordeal I avoid it if i can. In hyperspace has this huge enviroment and great varied appeal. I have never really tried finding online friends. With xbox live I was always unsure of the community system and was not inviting enless you used the forums I suppose. This community seems great and alot safer than some places on the net. I am gonna give it ago and try and find some online friends. Spending alot of time on your own can be unhealthy. I Suppose its like cabin fever.

    looking foward to getting BF4 when the patching has been done

    I have huge problems talking to people face to face, for some reason I don't like it much. I struggle extremely much saying anything when there are several people around, and it takes weeks before I'm comfortable talking to somebody, I don't know what it is. I have been tested for Autism and asbergers, and I have neither. I have been tested for several mental illnesses, and the results have all been negative, I usually don't say much with a crowd, if anything at all, and I suffer socially because of it, I don't have many friends, and have been single for the most part of my life, the only thing I've really had any physical contact is when I've been drunk, it's a pain, which is why I spend most of my time indoors at my computer, that's where I feel the most comfortable.
     
    Thanks for reading this.

    I do socialize much more on the internet than in real life. I think it mostly has to do with finding people with similar hobbies much easily, with less geographical restrictions.

    I have Aspergers. I do not have any friends offline anymore, and I can't say I'm sad about that. Sure, I would like friends, but it's nice and easy without as well
    Online, it's way easier for me to make friends, and the friends I currently have online are just as great as the ones I had offline. It's way easier for me to socialize online, because I don't have to pay attention to stuff like body language, facial expressions, etc. which I suck at. Plus that, online, you have nothing to lose. I mean by that: when you engage in a conversation with somebody you don't know online, you can just be yourself. If the other person doesn't like you, or even thinks you're an ass, he can just ignore you and vice versa. The internet is a big place, so that's an easy thing to do. I also get way less nervous of online voice chatting, it's just way easier for me for some reason. 
    Also: in regards to text chat: that is also a lot easier, because I can slowly think about what to say, as opposed to having to quickly come up with an answer, and then saying it other than how I meant it.

    I'm not but I am very socially awkward, though I have wondered if I am on that spectrum on a few occasions in my life. Don't think I am now on reflection though. I find it easier to talk to people online and prefer it since I don't have to speak. Anxiety and confidence issues for me, I hate myself lol. My social life in real life is almost non existent so yeah I do more of my socialising online. I'm introverted so I always find it draining speaking to many new people in real life. I've always struggled to make friends because of bullying and at some point I just gave up. Now that I am older there isn't really anywhere someone who doesn't have a job or college/school can go to make friends (apart from Online).
     
    No way would I want to go into some club or hobby place something on my own in RL. I like chatting to people online. I have a few good friends from it and even with casual acquaintances you meet in a gaming session it's just nice to have a chat.

    Nobody that only knows my surface would think that I've been diagnosed with social anxiety and depression. I've learned to wear a mask and to not show my true feelings. Talking to people drains me. I'm more of an introvert and enjoy only the company of very few people. If you're someone I truly like I will help you where I can and go out of my to do so but that normally takes time. I treat everyone with respect on- and offline but mostly socialize online where I have the indirect communication working in my favor.

    I was the defined 'Outcast' back in school up until Highschool took over. No one wanted to be near me, I didn't want to be near them. Everyone was a judgemental fuck that despised a kid with zits and extra weight. It didn't help that at the time I had the foolish idea to try and impress people that I did like, it backfired totally and just excluded me farther. There was only one kid I got along with, the rest were hell. Now he's an ass and everyone that previously despised me now doesn't mind me and goes out of their way to talk.

    I've become the pillar for some friends to rely on when life gives them hell, - I mean, all those years alone kind of left me in contemplation of life's meaning and purpose. I stuck myself in so many scenarios it was ridiculous. - that I've become more attuned to what people find funny. I've become that joker that everyone likes to be around in reality, in truth I'm no different on here.

    When I was that exile and got a Warcraft account I played constantly when my schoolwork was done. It was the only interaction I had with anyone. Though I didn't talk through TS or Skype I still had good friends on there. When I finally got around to talking to people through a voice-comm I was back in school as a popular guy. They wanted me on the football team so badly and everyone went out of their way to comment how well I'd do. I felt like a pig being led to slaughter. Tried out, left it off, replaced the disappointment of some with humor and viala, you have your Lord of Puns. 

    So, in short. Has the internet helped me find my communication skills? Yea, definitely when I had no one else to really talk to. Friends are friends, no matter where they come from.

    I have Asperger Syndrome and I've got to say going outside is a bitch for me, I find just going to a shop around the corner to be a massive challenge because I get panic attacks from meeting people or having to interact with people. However I will say that online interaction has helped, I've met people who have the same or similar problems and you don't have to meet face to face, you can talk each other on Skype and get to know people really well. One of the coolest guys I know, I have known for 5 years and I met him on Halo 3. I won't lie and say it has helped a lot but it's made me meet people from other places from around the world and the way you speak to them, if you're like me and actually plan out what you say and plan what to do when for instance going to a shop, you'll get better at it.
     
    I'm still the same now in all honesty and I use to be worse however, I got hacked once upon a time and that knocked some serious social points out of me, when it came to meeting new people online I stayed away and never talk, I still do that now. But I know that one day if I keep trying I'll get much better and won't be like this. I know this is personal stuff for me but I think to help relate it would be best, for some funny reason I can talk about the problems I have on the internet for everyone to see but I can't vocalize how I feel in real life. I hoped I helped in some way and we just need to keep going at our own pace and not let others force us to go and do things we're not ready for.
