I’ve really wanted to reinstall The Sims 2 lately. The only reason I haven’t really is that I don’t look forward to the CC hunt.
Granted, 99% of my desire to install it is so I can play Aslyum houses. (I think that’s what I remember them being called.)
I just want to read a book while watching sims fail to feed themselves, okay.
And today was the first day I’d ever participated in any. Basically, the majority of other posters were jumping on someone for more or less being a fat-hater. They kept trying to claim they’re not, while simultaneously saying they won’t let their sims get fat because they don’t want them to be “sick”, that obesity is a disease, and that the really fat sims from TS3 are “monstrosities” and “elephants” that don’t exist in real life.
When I commented that I glad to be finally informed that I was a monstrosity (since my self-sim in TS3 had its sliders all the way to the right) and wondered if such a status comes with a cool roar or something, they responded by saying they were “so sorry” for me, and that living like that must be “so hard.”
Holy condescending jackass, batman! The rest of the conversation went thusly:
Me: LOL It isn’t hard for me. I’m perfectly happy the way I am. The only ones that seem to struggle with how I look are prejudiced, probably extraordinarily self-conscious, people like you. People that think I’m a disease and look at me like I’m something that needs to be fixed. Y’know, like you do.
Don’t feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for yourself.
You see, when I make a nice and gentle comment, I get this. *rolleyes*
I feel sorry for you now because you showed that you are ignorant and rude.
Nope, I don’t feel sorry for myself. I don’t need. I will never neeed.
I’m a wonderful person who knows that and don’t need “anonymous people” approval.
Me: Your comment was not nice and gentle. It was patronizing. If that’s your definition of a “wonderful” person, good luck with that.
It is considered nice and gentle where I live, is all I need. :)
I left after that since there was nothing to be gained from continuing, but other people recognized what a shit the person was being. They have now flounced from the community, saying the whole thing is just a matter of different cultures. So, where exactly is this person from? Jerkland? The Republic of Assholes?
And to think, this all started with someone saying it made them sad when CC makers didn’t include fat morphs for overweight sims. Oh sims community, you amuse me so, even if I don’t even play the games anymore.
