Either the games I play attract a lot of insane people, or there are just a lot more insane people in the world than I realized

I have a dress-up/storybook game on my phone called Time Princess, and I don't know what the deal is, but I honestly feel like the only sane person in the Discord server sometimes. It's like every other player has some weird obsession or another, be it a character's sexuality/gender identity, how squishy/not squishy/whatever their face is (no, I'm not kidding), or how the developers got literally everything wrong because it's not exactly how they, the player, think it should be.

Of course, I can't even bring up any of this on the server without getting in trouble, especially since I was already muted once because somebody else had a problem with me. I said something about labels being confusing and they complained that I was making them "uncomfortable", despite the fact [i]they[/i] were the one who came after [i]me[/i]. But I guess rational conversations just aren't allowed online anymore.

The only reason I'm still part of the server is because it's the only English-speaking one, therefore the only place I can talk about the game with people who actually play it. I just wish they could all chill the hell out and stop making Mount Everest out of every little anthill. It's honestly kind of terrifying.

People are wild. Gaming communities are never any fun imo. There will always be bad apples.

[@593126,Kinevi1] Movie communities aren't much better, I've made posts on here before about the fandom I left because I didn't worship the ground a Mary Sue character walked on.

[@5488,ScrewThisImDone] Ugh. Yeah, I can believe it. The whole shipping scene is even worse. It's like people never want to agree on anything. I'm fine with my small group of friends. 🤷‍♂️

[@593126,Kinevi1] Oh, don't even get me started on shipping with these people...
Its the later. Mental illness has been growing all over the world every year. I've seen reddit go down in just the last year or two. Dating sites used to be okay 4 years ago. Facebook became toxic after it was opened up to the public. Humans are just getting worse emotionally.

Every single platform online has some kind of unwritten social rules
