one highly unfortunate aspect of the limitations of online communication is, you can’t get a read on the mental/emotional state of the people you interact with except by incidental cues. and you never really see the entirety of another person’s online experience

in an in-person setting, if you saw someone surrounded by people hollering at them and getting in their personal space, and the person was having an anxiety attack, most would have the good sense to back off and let the person breathe

Just imagining if the world we lived in was one where explicit communication, boundaries and consent were standard concepts that children were exposed to at a young age and raised to understand.

How might the world be different if we all learned early on that our own needs have value and we can ask for them to be met? That we can set boundaries based on them? That we have agency over our actions and do not owe anyone a presence in their lives? That learning how to hear “yes” and “no” are important skills?

anyone else really uncomfortable with Nintendo's move towards fairly major releases (Super Mario 3D All-Stars) becoming time limited?

I feel like this is more weaponising of FOMO nevermind encouraging people into debt if they want to buy it before it stops being sold, potentially forever
