I just want them to stop insulting me and calling me a sexist nerd and perpetrating stereotypes because I enjoy video games. I had enough of that in high school.
very few are actually doing that. If you are not doing those things or supporting those who do they are not talking about you. taking these kind of things personal or making them about you is what started a lot of the craziness in the first place.
I think your 100% right I need to try harder to ignore a lot of this.
