    Urgh.

    I've been trying to get s board game or RPG group with my friends set up for the least few months, only to discover they're all in their own groups without the free time for another one. Groups I'm only just hearing about, even if they say them up themselves, and which I seem to be very implicitly not invited to

    Yeah, not exactly happy at the moment. Of course nobody's willing to actually about that they don't want to play games with me, it's always just bad luck that they never think to invite me (to game nights, concert trips, anything...)

    Like, it's not like I can't get to board game clubs of I look, but there's a difference between that and playing them with people I trust (even if I don't exactly like them at the moment).

    That's ****, being excluded like that, even if 'only' implicitly. :/

    Oh, that's probably the politest way I've put it when talking to people. But yes, it makes me feel like less of a friend and more 'the thing we can't be bothered to shoo away'.

    Yeah, I had that a... lot. It's a really sucky feeling. And I'm sorry you're going through that.

    Now you're just memeing again

    On a broad scale in 40k, alien life is considered not so much pure evil as untrustworthy. There are sanctioned xenos, protectorate species, even temporary alliances at times. It also varies based on who you ask.

    It's considered a last resort partly because of the loss of human life on such a grand scale (stop laughing), but largely because it renders a planet uninhabitable and the Imperium's terraforming technology is slow. Like, 'takes millennia and immense resources to get even near habitable' slow.

    Today I learned that a surprisingly high number of forumites would be fine with unwilling mutilation in exchange for a lifetime of food and catering. Not sure what to do with that information, but I am curious: Would it be the same if we throw "taking away your children" into the equation?

    What's actually happening: Superman's son is temporarily taking up the mantle and, at the same time, entering a relationship with a male friend.

    That has to be on purpose. You don't do something that misleading by mistake.
    Hold on. Superman has a son? Like with Lois Lane the old-fashionned way, with somebody else, through adoption or through some time travel/cloning/magic/soul duplication/several of the above bull****tery?

    Ouch. Have you tried having an honest conversation with them about how you feel? This really might not have been intentional on their part, and if it is, you may want to stop considering them as friends.

    I think most of them are half joking, but if I had to choose, Iíll stay a human and keep all my bits attached, thank you very much.

    I don't have children to take away, I won't have children to take away, and if I were neutered I definitely wouldn't.

    Also, one of the reasons I expect I wouldn't be particularly upset with part of my genitalia being surgically removed as an infant is that part of my genitalia was surgically removed as an infant, and I'm not particularly upset.

    ...was that TMI?

    I'm a trans woman, that's kind of the plan here, yeah (well I mean it's not unwilling but you get what I mean. Also cats need to be spayed and neutered because they are very dangerous to the environment. It's a responsibility that must be done in certain circumstances. Most people don't feel good about getting it done.)

    Yeah, an actual honest to god son via normal ways. I only know about this due to the aforementioned "Superman (the current holder of the mantle) is gay now (actually bi)", and I only know about that due to watching other people dunk on the people being mad about it. Funny how that works.

    Agreed on this.

    Ha! Joke's on you! I have no children, nor do I want any, so if I did inadvertently have some you're quite welcome to take the little pests away!

    Sounds like they are putting their desire to own a cat over the cat's well-being, then.

    Like I said upthread, exploiting the outrage of Internet weirdos is now a viable marketing strategy. Which isn't a good thing at all.
