Im sure a few of you guys have been viewing the twitter airwaves recently. Before I get into this, let me tell you more about my step mom.
My step mom married my dad when i was a senior in HS. As I’ve gotten to know her, I’ve learned, that quite honestly, she’s not very sensitive. She doesn’t have any sort of filter, and to make matters worse, she tries to act like she’s my mother. Bi-HIIIG Mistake! (Scrubs reference btw).
One thing I NEVER like talking about with my step mom is my love life. I never mentioned that I was dating ALisha to her, or anything along those lines. Somehow she found out, but i mainly just covered it up by saying that we just hung out a few times and let that be that. She even had the nerve to bring up the person that I was dating for 1.5 years (back when i was in college) KNOWING that we had been broken up for over a year now.
However, yesterday, she made a comment that was very offensive. Basically, she said that all guys who have gamers won’t ever have a girlfriend. She further went on to say that all girls who play vgs wont have boyfriends. (I didn’t mention anything about girls dating girls or boys dating boys because 1.) That might have been an opening for more problems with her and 2.) her response probably would similar…or worse.
Of course when she said this, I went into full defense mode. I immediately thought of Alisha, because 1.) we dated shortly, but she was still someone who liked me even though I was a gamer, and 2.) SHE was a gamer as well. So, immediately there she’s been disprooven. Yes, I’m not CURRENTLY dating someone, but the fact that we DATED means that at some point I had a girlfriend. Even when i was dating the other girl from college, I was a gamer, and she dated me (even though she hated gaming and tried to get me to stop…lets not go there though).
Also, I think to most of the people I’ve met on Backloggery and in real life. WorldDude and Hoboriss have been dating for a bit over a year now, and they’re both gamers. One of my closer RL friends (whos also a member on BL) has a b/f right now and she herself is a gamer. One of the people i used to go to group with is MARRIED, and he’s a gamer (though idk how their marriage is going to end up due to non-gaming things). And im sure there are other BL members that have are dating someone (Male or Female). So, maybe I should introduce my step mom to BL.
Anywho, I really hope that what she said (or her words through me) have offended anyone. They did make me mad, but I did wnat to stand up and fight for her…and for you guys too. We all might not have the best love lives, but that doesnt meant we wont have them someday.
