I get that phrase a lot, that and "over react much?" whenever I bring up ANY issue, be it from a video game, politics, or whatever. There seems to be a lot of people who just don't wanna talk about anything at all, and would much rather these discussions just not exist so they can get on with their lives.
You'll be unsurprised to learn that I don't agree with that wisdom. In my books, if you don't do anything, nothing is going to happen. If there's an injustice in the world somewhere and you stay silent, that injustice isn't going to fix itself. It will just keep happening. That, my friends, is complacency.
Then of course there are those people who don't believe that the world will ever change, therefor there's no reason to try, and actively try to stop anyone who dares to stand up for something. I can't begin to describe how annoying that mindset is to me. It's almost sadistic in it's very nature, by actively trying to stop people from making the world a better place by being dismissive and passive aggressive.
And here's the worse part about all this... nothing will harm you from having a discussion about a topic. Talking about women's rights in video games, for example, isn't going to cause your games to be taken away from you. Talking about violence in the media isn't going to get your movies and TV shows censored. Having opinions and being free to discuss them isn't a BAD thing, so I don't know why there are so many people who actively want to STOP it from even happening.
There's nothing wrong with talking about issues. That's the only way we're ever going to affect any sort of change in the world. You wanna know "why we're talking about this?" Because that's how change happens. That's how we improve life. That's how we see eye to eye. Doing nothing is just that: Doing nothing. Nothing will happen if you don't DO something.
