Fiction.

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 14, 2013, 2:52 PM



How redundant is it pointing out these following statements?

There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands. 

I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction. 

Just to reestablish what it even means, here it is, straight from Ox': 

fiction |ˈfikSHən|    noun    
literature in the form of prose, esp. short stories and novels, that describes imaginary events and people.
• invention or fabrication as opposed to fact

We're at an age where this kinda behavior was supposed to stay in High School. But sadly, internet has become the new "high school". Has been for many years now. I used to be bullied in HS because I liked video games, anime like Pokémon and Dragonball and whatnot; over fictional shiz. And many other nerds out there have incurred the wraths of jocks and hot cheerleaders because they liked Star Wars, Star Trek, D&D, and whatever in their time too.

It's super-childish and puerile. Now on the other hand, one can go (typically, realists) and say that fiction in itself is childish, but that's super hypocritical, because I'm sure every human being enjoys some form of fiction, whether it's outlandish or close to reality. Fiction is fiction. Fabricated. Made-up. 

Think about how superfluous it is for all these extremist groups and whatnot fighting against imaginary, made-up crap. People complaining about certain races of people not being represented in a good light, women not being represented in a strong way, etc.~ It's the act of trying to validate something that wasn't intended to be validated in that sense in the first place. 

Who cares if the black guy dies first? He didn't really die. Who cares if there are voluptuous sex symbols in a game? I personally know a ton of powerful, impressionable women in real life. ETCETERA.

It's getting pretty old. 

When you go out of your way to tell me how much you hate a character and think how dumb a series is, even just to get whatever kinda personal monkey that's on your back off of you, please note that I do not care and will most likely ignore you

And this is to those who are challenged by these kinda people who can't seem to keep to themselves about fictional stuff: Don't let them ruin your day. Ignore them. Like what you like. If you like My Little Pony, like My Little Pony. If you enjoy Kick-Ass, enjoy Kick-Ass. If Dragon's Crown appeals to you, then like Dragon's Crown. If you have a fetish that you don't share with many people, well... like your fetish.

For those who can't seem to keep their fingers from the keyboard to express their personal but redundant statement about how much they don't like something: just ignore the subject at hand. Look for things you like and talk positive about them; I'm sure the people who are posting that stuff you DO like will appreciate it. 

Everyone and their cat seems to have gone through law-school and earned their gavel... Time to grow up.

   For a person who doesn't like to concern himself with drama Robaato you sure know how to create it lol. I agree with your journal but I can also see why some people would have an issue with it. Internet bullying(what is known as trolling) is now apart of core culture of being a geek in america. Many of of us are wannabe intellectuals,free thinkers, hipsters,artists, ect. And we all have an opinion. Many of us on the Beta side of the personality spectrum choose words as our weapon of choice. The generation born in the 90's are the most vocal generation at this point. Sadly most of their generation haven't lived or experienced some serious shit yet they feel they "KNOW" everything and enough about social issues or injustices to the point they need to feel strongly about them.

My generation(Those born in the mid to late 70's to early 80's) is probably the last to go through and experience some serious shit when it concerns issues like racism,sexism, and whatever -ism. I used to rally against social injustices and support any and every social stance or agenda that any person or group felt the need to address. I' m older and a bit wiser.So I can totally relate to what your saying in your journal.

But at the same time I also acknowledge its one sided and that's fine. There are still injustices and societal bullshit that america hasn't dealt with as of yet. And real life bullshit does end up in our forms of entertainment and that includes the fictional things that we create as artists. Some people like to keep shit real while others do not. As much as I enjoyed the movie Django by Quentin Torantino. I was also offended as an african american. The language and the use of the "N" word  was probably the norm for the time the movie was set in. Even still if you have watched many of Torantino's film you well notice that he seems to have a fascination with the "N" word in general. Most if not all his movies are based around and romanticize many bad american stereotypes in general. While his movies are a work of fiction and entertaining. It still doesn't disguise the fact that some people will find the content offensive and inappropriate for how america is as a country today.

  I am not as much of a PC( Politically Correct)person as I was in my late teens and early 20's. But that's because I chose to never fully pick a side as of late. And because of that I can see both sides clearly. No matter how just your cause is its easy to lose sight of your goal or your reasons of championing a cause become corrupted. I learned in most cases its not really the cause that's bad.Its the people who support certain causes whose reasons of backing the cause become obsessed and corrupted over time.


 Everyone has their bullshit. Even though you have wrote a well thought out journal some people will consider it bullshit written by someone who really doesn't care about anything or claim responsibility for how their creations can impact others positive or negatively. Everyone is free to have an opinion but your opinion only matters if you can back it up in your words and actions. So far you have done so in a respectful manner. Everyone has their reasons,experiences, and moral standing when it comes to any and everything. It just now people have the safety and anonymity of the internet to voice or whine about shit without fear of being punched in the face or dealing with drama in the open public.

Race is the most dominant issue on the planet. One of the reasons this is so misunderstood is that we (non white) haven't figured out that its a "system of racism" in place that designates all of these images in entertainment, django, the butler, the help, precious, etc. But  non white people by the thousands are responding to the effects of racism by trying to escape it and say its not a problem. A mental illness at best.

Robaato is right.

People...fiction and non-fiction are two different things, but when you take the preverbal knife and cut them both into pieces and boil them down, the leftover at the bottom I promise you, would be Imagination.

 

Whether or not something's real...if it's a piece of art, a game, a figure or just a good idea or concept, or an object or an actual thing....it wasn't real before imagination came into play. To be an artist, is about rendering the unreal into life. Even scientists, must believe unrealistically before they turn it into fact.

 

Fiction becomes Non-Fiction when it becomes a fact. Fiction is Imagination in motion...

 

and Imagination is fact under fiction

I don't aprove of all things that exist in these terms I'll admit. That being said, who says I have a right to bash that into somebody else's head. Seriously, fiction for many people is an escape so how is giving somebody problems to run away from even make sense? Even if your stand was 100% justified the action is pretty pointless. Leave it alone is what I say.

Fiction is also a reflection of reality, otherwise it wouldn't be relatable aka boring. And fiction influences their recipients. If you say you are totally immune to the impressions of fiction, that's cool - I wouldn't believe you, but that's my problem. But I daresay that there are many impressionable people out there who dig a lot into fiction and view reoccuring depictions of, say, racism as being a normal thing to do as the normal thing to do in real life.

Maybe I misunderstood your message, but I think you're trying to say that fiction is completely detached from reality - which I find insulting towards all artists who use fiction, humor or drama to tackle real-world problems.

I.... Personally.... love to hear people's hate about anything.  I enjoy the freedom of speech, and everything that entails, even the stuff that might make me flip my lid.  I enjoy knowing who hates what, and where my audience lies, and would encourage everyone to say what they feel, where ever they feel, no matter who's toes get stepped on.  It's all words, and if you're allowing yourself to get overly worked up over them, then that's not the other party's concern - it's actually something you yourself have to fix.

Actually, no. People also have the right to be offended and bothered by something that is said. Sure, you can say whatever the hell you want, but what people fail to grasp is the fact that they have to take responsibility for what they say. I'm also pretty sure, he's pointing out the people who make it their sole purpose to point out their hate for their own amusement and nothing else. I'm pretty sure he's not opposed to someone forming coherent and purposeful comment detailing their dislikes. I don't like my toes getting stepped on 'cause I feel that's disrespectful and I'm sure other people feel the same way too. And it doesn't matter whether you're thin-skinned or a seasoned vet at life/internet. Words hurt sometimes, end of story. A simple hateful comment could be enough to bother someone or ruin their day. And not just the OP, but some of the people who read it as well. By telling him that it's something he has to "fix" you're assuming he's broken or messed up in a way. He isn't. He's actually displaying what you, yourself are describing. Don't you think you're being a bit hypocritical?

I wanted to add a disclaimer to the end of that statement, but at the last minute decided not to because I didn't think it was necessary.

To be quite fair, that entire post was a nitpick about ONE particular aspect of what Robaato said, NOT a complete address to his entire journal.  And the statement regarding "fixing" oneself was not even directed at Robaato, it was a general statement.  Stop letting your feelings run you.  :|

Plain and simple, words don't cause any more harm than the listener ALLOWS them to.  This is why it's so easy to tune someone out once you've discerned something about the verbal attacker that you can easily dismiss.  Everyone has this ability to "not give a shit", they simply choose when to express it.  I myself am all for "give you flak/receive flak back", but apparently everyone else thinks completely censoring the other party, or telling them to go elsewhere when they dislike something is an okay thing to do.  The last I've seen such suppressant mentalities was in Nazi Germany/Pre Civil Rights America.  To think that people who would demand their rights be respected, would turn around and then suppress anothers'.  There's no better tool than the block button and (in non DA matters) the unjust manipulation of laws for the weak minded and easily offended to make their meaningless feelings count.

Words don't hurt - they "can" hurt (If you let them).  In saying that they do hurt, you are trying to pass that statement off as a definite, as if it will always come to pass.  I've blasted many people away verbally on this site, and was blocked in some cases, trolled back in some cases, and even befriended or laughed at and with in others.  This is very much evidence to the contrary of what you're talking about, and you really didn't even need my experience to come to that conclusion.  People are different.  They all behave differently.  While they are all alike in the avoidance of pain and the pursuit of pleasure, when it comes to COMMUNI-FUCKING-CATION, the message is never always, or even sometimes, interpreted the same way.

All in all, you have the right to get offended, but you don't have the right to impose on another based on your offendedness.  You DO have the right to communicate your irritation, and that's good, and healthy, and I would totally applaud that. 

So no, you got that backwards.  You were wrong.  The. Entire. Time.

I don't believe I mentioned or stated that you were citing his entire entry, not to mention that the, "Actually, no" was me simply saying, "I disagree with you" not "You are wrong" which are two different things entirely. And I was using him as an example since it was his journal entry. I thought that was blatantly obvious. And I'm sorry for being human? I didn't realize it was bad to have emotions. But you're wrong in assuming my emotions "run me" as you said (Or that I'm letting them "run me"). And that is a very terrible assumption to make considering you don't even know me.

I was going to respond point by point, but then I realized your other two paragraphs were a bit repetitive. So, I suppose consolidation is the way to go here. So, as an example from personal experience. I'm not supposed to care if someone yells racial slurs at me? 'Cause so far being stripped of your humanity by someone is pretty hard to ignore in and of itself. Let's use another example. Cat calling. After all these ears I keep walking, ignoring what they say, letting roll of my shoulders, but hold on... What's this feeling? Oh, that's right. It's the feeling of being uncomfortable, which is not an emotion, but a state of being. But going back to what I had said in my other post. "Words hurt, sometimes" You see that last part? The word "sometimes"? It's not all inclusive. It denotes that there are exceptions, that this occurrence is not a definite, but that it still occurs. That it is not the be all, end all. You, however, are being all inclusive with your generalization that everyone wants to completely censor people who disagree with that they say/do. And to respond directly to this "The last I've seen such suppressant mentalities was in Nazi Germany/Pre-Civil Rights America.  To think that people who would demand their rights be respected, would turn around and then suppress anothers'." I'm sorry, what world or planet have you been living on? This happens on a day to day basis. This is happening possibly right now as I type this response to you.

But, moving on. It's great to see you taking my words out of context or in fact not taking them in their exact context. Not all words spilled forth from someone's mouth or fingertips have a negative connotation or are intended to cause distress. But as you said, people are different and react differently. And despite that, words can and cannot cause someone to be uncomfortable, distressed or summon some kind of negative emotion in them. What offends and bothers one may not offend or bother another. And, you're right everyone perceives differently and that is why people should think about what they want to say before they say it. No one is advocating censorship, but instead critical thought and mature assessment of the situation before something is said. Or perhaps, take the decision to walk away and put distance between them and the person they think and feel is aggressing them.

So no, I did not get it backwards. And an opinion cannot be wrong, simply disagreed with. And finally. The emphasis tends to get lost when you do. Things. Like. This.

But after this, weather you respond or not is inconsequential. The airs you give off and the patronizing tone of your response leave an overwhelmingly terrible and fortunately figurative taste in my mouth. I would prefer that our interaction stop right here.

Ahh, but here's where that thing called interpretation comes in.  Once words leave your mouth (spare me the details that this is text), thier message may not be the same as they were in your head.  "Actually no" doesn't come off as innocent as "I disagree", but as a blunt dismissal of what I was saying.  So "actually no", your statement wasn't as easily interpreted as you may have thought.

And I was using him as an example since it was his journal entry. I thought that was blatantly obvious.

No, it was blatantly stupid, because you talked as if it was very apparent that I was attacking Robaato for what he's saying in this journal.  You spoke as if I was DEFINITELY addressing him - i.e. an accusation - not just as an example.  Again, your words don't mean the same to you as they do others.  Stop with the backpeddling bullshit.

So, as an example from personal experience. I'm not supposed to care if someone yells racial slurs at me? 'Cause so far being stripped of your humanity by someone is pretty hard to ignore in and of itself.

Right, you shouldn't give a shit if someone yells racial slurs at you.  Why?  What the fuck does that person mean to you? 

Are they someone you know? 
Someone you care about? 
Or just some random person who happens to share the same classroom, zipcode or location as you? 

If they're someone you care about, the next course of action is to figure out WHY they called you a racial slur, and regardless of whatever the action is, the only DECENT next step emotionally is to feel disappointment.  NOT sadness, NOT self loathing or hatred or whatever bullshit.  Those are examples of UNCHECKED EMOTIONS that are NOT equivalent in balance to the situation.  What was uttered was a word.  Just a word.  Strip all of the unnecessary shit like the history, and culture surrounding the word, and you get.... just a word.  Something given a sequentially lettered designation in order to be readily identified, and nothing more.  If not, then would you feel the same self loathing, sadness and hatred for someone who called you a pig, or a chicken shit?  Both are "stripping you of your humanity", albeit in a different way, but to the same effect logically. 

Ha, this is why I don't believe in such things as maturity, because human beings well over the age of 21 still can't seem to find calling someone the word NIGGER as effective as calling someone a "Poopy head".  And then there's the fact that you mentioned that such words strip you of your humanity.  Overdramatic, much?  Next time someone calls you a racial slur, and you find yourself doubting your humanity, do yourself a favor and run a self diagnostic - "Can I still think?  Check.  All 5 senses intact?  Check.  Do I still appear humanoid?  Check.  Conclusion?  Something's wrong with me for ever doubting."

But you're wrong in assuming my emotions "run me" as you said (Or that I'm letting them "run me"). And that is a very terrible assumption to make considering you don't even know me.

First you sound as if accusing me of dismissing Robaato's entire message, then you go on to tell me how much a single racial slur can usurp you of your humanity.  Yep, I don't need to know you, I know enough to know your feelings have YOU in check.

What's this feeling? Oh, that's right. It's the feeling of being uncomfortable, which is not an emotion, but a state of being.

Yeah, attempting to pass your emotions off as something more than they are, yet again.  What with the negative stigmas upon sexual intercourse, coupled with natural defenses such as familiarity with the person in question who is catcalling, along with the nature of the type of person who initiates the calling, it's no wonder that you FEEL, not "get put in the state of being", uneasy.  This entire scenario is pretty much OUTSIDE the realm of anything I was talking about anyway, as statements that are obviously threatening goes beyond the type of exchange that I'm describing.  The fact that someone calls you a nigger is easily dissmissable.  You being the only black person around, in a place where there's a bunch of white guys calling you a nigger is a completely different thing altogether.  My stance states they should be allowed to call you a nigger.  The alternative is to not allow them to call you a nigger.  In MY scenario, you at least get a fucking WARNING before these guys ever come to do anything more than just call you a racial slur.  How does that sound to you, or would you prefer they keep quiet about their future actions instead?

"The last I've seen such suppressant mentalities was in Nazi Germany/Pre-Civil Rights America.  To think that people who would demand their rights be respected, would turn around and then suppress anothers'." I'm sorry, what world or planet have you been living on? This happens on a day to day basis. This is happening possibly right now as I type this response to you.

You totally whooshed the point where I'm likening the people of today, who should know fucking better, to people of history, in an obviously instantly recognizable example.

And, you're right everyone perceives differently and that is why people should think about what they want to say before they say it.

I agree that much...  But only in the case that they are trying to get their message out the way they want to, not to spare anyone's feelings.  If they deserve a verbal thrashing then they deserve one.  If you dislike something about a person, you express it in a way that is accurate at voicing your discontent.  If it offends the person in question, good, because it shows just how much you hated it.  It's PERFECT that way.  I can't disagree enough with the idea that everyone should be pushed upon some sort of self thought-filtering honor system just to spare someone else the chance to discipline their emotional outbursts at communication.  The only way you're going to get used to verbal abuse is to be subjected to it.

And an opinion cannot be wrong, simply disagreed with.

Lol.  An opinion can be wrong.  Very wrong.  In my opinion, all prudes creating laws to restrict obscenity should be wiped off the planet in the most painfully brutal way possible.  Tell me that opinion isn't wrong.  :)  They're still human, and can be shown the error of their ways.  That opinion is nothing more than a quick fix that wouldn't necessarily work even if it did follow through.  It's WRONG.  Period.

And your final paragraph...

I would say sorry, having jumped quickly to battle mode at the mere sight of the words "actually no", but I won't.  I'm blunt and combatant for a reason - to frighten off prudes (or easily offended sensitive people) because I absolutely hate weak minded folk who want to slow down the progress of others just so that they can feel comfortable.  You appear to be that type of person, and so long as you feel the need to RUN AWAY from a conversation, I feel comfortable having been rid of you.

well, you have a point, but "pulp fiction" like comics or most of the anime don't deserve the rights to be "put on the stand" as example of good fiction, which "everybody must favor and love at the end of their hearts". on the other hand a very pop-like "Pacific Rim" or amazing "Gurren Lagann" are very good, they funny, relaxing and easy to watch, and furthermore in them you can't see any glimpse of idiotic "personal trauma" or "unique and randomly given superpowers".

as for me, I'm more prefer hard si-fi books, which is very unusual today (i bet that many people read no more than one extremely crappy book a year), and for me the best ever examples of fiction is Lem's "Solaris", "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons, "The Caves of Steel" by Asimov and so on.

You know I had a passing interest in your indie game, but the more I hear you talk and the more art from you I kind of admit I'm gaining a bit more interest. XD WIN ONE FOR THE GOOD ATTITUDE.

PS - I love the design of your main character in that game whose name I can't recall. :dummy:

I just don't understand why being different and liking different things must give others a reason to tell others they don't like something. If you don't like it, then why are you looking at it? For example, I personally don't care for dbz or call of duty. So why would I want to go to places where it is in my face? Some must think before speaking.

Indeed, it makes too much sense to go along with.

Not to be confused with hip-hop animator Fik-Shun, whose movements could only be imagined in fiction.  :thumbsup:

One time, I was at a dentist's appointment, and while the dentist was doing my check-up, she asked me what I like to do. I told I like making a lot of fictional art. Then she told me, no, she DEMANDED that I draw/create stuff that are real. That pissed me off so much the way she said it. Half the fun I have with fiction is thinking of ideas. Non-fiction is just taking something that already happened and just presenting it in some way. That sounds boring.

I personally have a die hard MLP fan (who is a guy) and I could care less, I personally can't get into it simply because I don't like ponies. Would be the same if it were rabbits. I tease him but he knows I am joking, I agree with it. A lot of people need to stop caring so much about what other people like unless they are trying to shove it down your throat.

I get sick of racist, feminist, and otherwise ridiculous comments about everything. Like EVERYTHING has to include EVERYONE in it demographic. And that's completely untrue. I make things for myself and GUYS like myself. Most people do. I don't use a lot of black folks in my story's because I don't have many black friends. It's nothing against anyone, just me writing from experience. I draw large butted womens, because I both mostly associate with and like big butted womens. 

Not everything in this world is meant to be inclusive of everyone. The main issue is the "me culture" that's spread thru marketing. So many things are "customizable" that it's forcing a false sense of control over all publicly displayed content. 

But I can't agree with all your points. Simply because I can't understand a grown ass mans obsession with my little pony. Not on the levels that those Bronies go to. I mean, I like to get drunk and watch lazytown from time to time. But Bronies... I dunno. 

I only ever got picked on because of my weight. But not they way you think. I'm super thin. They talk shit to fat kids, but don't usually hit them because it takes a lot of muscle to lift fat.
