The majority KNOW that it is make believe. However, they portrau themselves as the one and only Keeper of the Power or whatever.
Cosplay? What the **** is that? Is that the game where you guys try to guess what the other guy is shoving up your ass?
Awwww, does him have a queer ass, loser hobby that people make fun of? Maybe they make fun of it because IT IS FUCKING STUPID.
By the way, if you haven't figured out yet that I bat for both teams, let me know, and i'll have a government appointed handler sticky a note to your forehead.
The thread is about Obscure arts and Fetishism. I gave my opinion of why it (MA's) become a fetish like thing for some people.
The problem is THEY DO tell people that they can use it to defend themselves. They truly believe they can. They have crossed over the line from a hobby into obsession/delusion.
Please see the definiton of fetish, to fully understand my point. Of course the years you spent sucking cock has probably diminished your ability to think rationaly.
Well have a seat in your barcalounger, because I have some rather dissapointing news for you:
BTW you stupid ****, its CAMARO.

Your statements on D&D and roleplaying games in general are not borne out by facts. My (extensive, since I've been gaming for the past fifteen fucking years) experience is that the number of hardcore gamers/Larpers that do a martial art is relatively small, and the more hardcore into gaming they are, the /less/ likely they are to be training - or indeed, doing anything that isn't gaming and or working.
Moreover, the vast majority of gamers, upon finding out another gamer does a martial art, will shrug, say "that's cool", and move on, because they don't fucking care. There's no obsessive culture of ma worship within gaming; it just doesn't happen.
In short - you are talking out your ass about something you know very little about, and people with extensive experience in that something are telling you so. So shut up.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

I actually play D & D (Living Greyhawk). I was basing my post on first hand observations from years of RPG conventions, and countless hours of Gaming. ( I have been playing D&D and attending SciFi Conventions for over 20 years)
I have traveled quite a bit to attend various gamedays, cons, and whatnots, so I have seen a good cross section of the RPG make up.
My sister in law is a member of the D&D LG Governing Body and my brother is the President of the Local RPG club (LG Only)
I feel that the above experience ( I have been role playing since before he was born) gave me a good view of why certain types of people obsess, which turns into a fetish about their "hobbies", and how they use MA's as aprt of their fetish/fantasy. I didnt say that ALL RPG people did this. My post was limited to the RPG community. I didnt specify cosplay. If he is upset then maybe he has a complex about his hobby.
I didnt realize I was insulting anyones hobby. The insult was a perceived/assumed one, much like many of you are doing here.
I also didnt realize that I needed to post a video to trash talk someone. I thought from the BJJ Blue belt comment that the serious factor was kind of low.
*edit* So Fatherdog, I have a VAST amount more of gaming XP than you. I played my first D&D game in, get this....1983. In case you cant do the math, thats 24 years ago.
So it seems that YOU may be talking out of your ass. I wasnt bashing RPGing.
Maybe you guys need to READ the thread this started on, and SEE THE CONTEXT OF MY POST.
