I don't buy t-shirts; whatever dumb swag shirts fit in my bag at E3 are basically what I live in.

Now if you excuse me, I have some deBlob 2 t-shirts to wear that are way to big for me.

Prior to starting this response, l would like to again note that I like Patrick and think hes a good guy.

This same thing could have been said about any minority group, along with women, a majority that is still extremely discriminated against, however Patrick talking about this does in any way, shape, or form forward we transsexuals. What it does do is solidify in the mind of the ignorant that we are to be defended, rather than defending ourselves. If had let's say talked to a the reviewer in an interview, than that would completely change this. It is also the fact that it instills in the mind of younger trans people that they are victims of some sort, and that is what I worry about. To be trans it takes extremely thick skin, or else it will kill you. So promoting the idea that a trans person is a victim that needs to be taken care of could very well put in danger the life of someone who simply hasn't had the proper role model or helper in their life.

Unless you're going to argue something bizarre like the LGBTQQ[...] marches in single file to hide their numbers, I don't understand why combatting injustice needs to be this David versus Goliath fight. I've been a community ally for years and I simply don't like seeing the people that I love and care about get kicked around because they are different or because they are an easy target. Sure, making a joke is one thing and I've certainly made plenty over the years; however if you are going to say that all of the tasteless and bad jokes be left there hanging in the air so the targets of that aggression be left to deal with the cleanup, I think you are advocating for a foolhardy position to be in. You don't need to fight alone to prove anything to anyone; you have allies, whether you think their position is misguided or "putting you down" in some way, so deal with it.

As for having thick skin, I've always considered that a copout. I know a lot of people with thick skin who are one good conversation away from a complete breakdown. Being able to take what is thrown at you requires more flexibility than rigidity, and even then you need a strong support system (and that goes for anyone from every walk of life).

@gstag: I enjoyed your yammering. I'd watch your livestream of Battlefield 4.

Borderlands2 is still a thing coming out?

Assuming Dave Lang isn't just blowing the development budget on hookers and meth, the port is still in development at Iron Galaxy.

So what you're saying is that it is never coming and it will be super janky if it does?

I can't help with the latter; I'm taken (sorry reproductively-healthy people)!

So I didn't get a PS4 because I'm broke, and I didn't buy Battlefield 4 because it is broken. I'm hoping there are some people in that same boat but still want to play Battlefield 3 on PlayStation 3. I fell of the wagon a long time ago but I'm trying to get back into it. If anyone wants to start a casual clan or simply play a few rounds every now and then, let me know.

That game is surprisingly active but I find myself playing Operation Metro with maximum tickets because people seem to cooperate in those games. I would love to see the rest of the game modes again.

Fair warning: I don't have all of the DLC (only Back to Karkand).
