“A game is an ongoing series of complementary ulterior transactions progressing to a well-defined, predictable outcome. Descriptively, it is a recurring set of transactions… with a concealed motivation… or gimmick.”
Dr. Eric Berne Games People Play
Sound familiar? If you’ve been in SL for even a few months, I’m sure you’ve encountered a player or six. Let’s just cut to the chase. They are predators. If they have an agenda that doesn’t coincide with what they’re telling you? Yeah, its a trap and you’re probably the prey or possibly the bait. Either way, its no good. What motives could they have? Oh, please…money and sex are top of the list. So, do we hate the player or the game? Well, if I didn’t knowingly sign up to play “the game” then I certainly don’t need to blame the game, now do I? I say hate them both…hate the game AND the player!
Now, if YOU like to play the game…awesome for you, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun if the other people playing knew they were playing? Cuz seems to me, its gotta be pretty easy to win a game of checkers if no one else is playing. We all talk about making the world a better place. Here’s an idea…treat each other with respect….c’mon dude at the candy store…sending a dick pic is like walking around in a raincoat flashing women at the mall. Not cool and honestly, the type of woman that would jump right onto a man after seeing a picture of his genitals? Well, lets be fair, you can find plenty of those on those free sex sims.
Sadly, pervs like that rarely take the time to read the back of a shampoo bottle, much less a blog about fashion. So, I’ll just laugh with my perv friends that know whenever we get a picture of someone’s genitals…we share with our friends and spend the whole day making jokes about how bizarre it looked. You see, there was no man attached to make it attractive. The only thing that came with this intimate photo? Ignorant, disrespectful, desperation…that’s what came with that photo.
