So, I’ve recently stumbled across a post by Robyn Vinter named ‘Pokémon Go is not a chat-up invitation‘ and read a lot of bashful commentary from others that I personally thought was quite inappropriate or well… Farfetch’d. Hehe.
I must say I do not agree with what Robyn wrote, however I do feel like I understand her situation. The hardest part for me was reading the reactions to what she said. Sentences like ‘What an ego tripping b*tch, she thinks every guy wants to get in her pants!‘, ‘Doesn’t want to meet people because nerds aren’t good enough for her!‘ or ‘Can’t even handle a friendly conversation about a mutual interest.‘ were wildly spread reactions.
I find that her use of words or descriptions isn’t in tact and started all this hassle. She refers to the men that started a conversation with her as ‘nerds’. When I imagine what exactly defines a nerd I immediately start thinking of these ugly men with no social skills who watch porn all day and live in their mom’s basement, snacking on Hot Pockets and drinking Mountain Dew.
What she meant to refer to is Pokémon Go players, not nerds. These aren’t the same type of socially awkward men snorting and pushing their glasses up when they see a girl. If this was the case, I would totally agree with the comment section and would applaud these nerds for actually gathering their courage together to talk to a ‘real’ girl. But this simply isn’t the case.
Pokémon Go players consist of a wide range of people; they might be drug addicts, goths, bikers, hippies, plumbers, … There’s also no actual age limit on the game you can walk in to a 12 year old Pokémon Go player, just as well as a 65 year old one.
As plenty of former newspaper articles have shown, Pokémon Go isn’t always a safe and innocent game. People have gotten robbed at knifepoint, there were car accidents caused by drivers playing this game and well, you never know when that part of your city your walking into might be the wrong neighborhood for you to be at.
Now, with this knowledge in the back of your head, you must understand why I find she also has some valid points…
Robyn Vinter is a young, good looking girl walking around alone down the streets in search for Pokémon. You have to realize she is vulnerable at this point. There’s no exact description of what neighborhood she was in or whether or not there were any other people around. She also doesn’t go into description of the person that talked to her other than saying he came over in her eyes as ‘strange‘.
I see a lot of comments making it seem like the men talking to her were simply ‘too ugly for her standards’, I personally would not have used the word ‘strange‘ to describe them if that was the case. Strange rather gives me the feeling he was a bit creepy and she didn’t feel comfortable around him. Why? Could be a numeral of reasons, he had blood spots on his shirt, he had that pedophile mustache thing going on, he kept scratching his balls, or maybe he, Forrest Gump style, stared at her shoes for too long.
She mentioned he followed her when she ‘in an unsubtle fashion attempted to sidle away‘. At this point, if I were that man, I would have taken the hint that I might be frightening this young woman a little and that she is not interested in going on a date with me. After all that WAS his intention, to ask her on a date, solemnly based on her looks and the fact she played the same game. Who is the narrow-minded one now?
The second story I found out to be even less kind-hearted and even a bit rude. ‘Offered to show me where I could catch a “high-level Poliwhirl”.’ This might seem cheeky, but a person with good intentions would’ve written down the location for her. If he was interested in helping Robin, he could have added his number in case she couldn’t find it, if she’d like him to tag along anyway or if she was interested in him to text him to go on an actual date. The way he handled that situation in the story, was more of a ‘This is your once in a lifetime chance to sit on my c*ck.”. Because, let’s face it, what if she went along with him, she might’ve indeed caught a Poliwhirl, but chances ARE there that, just like she said, she could’ve caught something totally different than a pokémon. This is an absolute stranger asking her to go with him, all she knows about him is that he claims to play the same game. Did he even mean that? Or are men now naming their private parts like pokémon?
I simply think the issue here is that a lot of respect and logic was missing from these encounters. Pokémon Go might be a good conversation starter, but you must realize that walking up to a person you don’t know in the middle of nowhere with nobody around possibly comes over as creepy. That offering a stranger to go to a private place with you doesn’t sound too safe at all. I’m sure your ‘free candy’-van hasn’t scored much women either.
Robin’s last sentence makes it seem out that they were social awkward indoor nerds before, who now go outside and do not know how to interact respectfully with women. Her reaction is a bit extreme telling them to ‘Pokémon Go away’.
I even find it a bit ironic that she doesn’t share Pokémon Go as a common interest with her own boyfriend. I understand she’d feel safer with her boyfriend around, though. Walking home alone from your local nightclub and having random strangers talk to you along the way is equally scary as walking about during daylight in an empty street, forest or by a lake to catch Pokémon and having a stranger talk to you there.
I do not think they are out there simply hunting for women obviously. Pokémon Go obviously isn’t the new app for rapists to find their target. I do think Pokémon Go makes it easier for gamers to meet other gamers. As well as to find a girlfriend who’s interested in gaming, which usually is seen as an important qualification. Make friends, enjoy the social aspect of the game, be respectful and analyse your surroundings before you plan to walk over to a woman, you don’t want to ‘startle the witch’.

What if… Marilyn Manson left his shock rock tunes aside and went for some happy ska tunes instead? This might sound as a bad idea, but it is a surprisingly good one! We think this might be the question youtuber Bob Kooparos had in mind and his result… amazing!
Even though, Marilyn Manson’s music can under no circumstances simply be classified as just one genre, ska certainly doesn’t hurt his tunes. Your move, Marilyn Manson, can we expect some more ska tunes coming from your own end soon too?

Written by Amy Schumer, with herself as main character Trainwreck is of to a good start. You have probably heard of her, Amy Schumer has her own comedy show called ‘inside Amy Schumer on youtube’s free to watch Comedy Central channel. She’s one of the funniest female comedians at this time even though her humor isn’t for everyone, it tends to get a bit sexual.
Trainwreck takes a look at Amy’s life. With an alcoholic father that recently got put in a retirement home, a sister who got it all together, a career for a men magazine, an overly active sex life and a boyfriend that may or may not be gay the movie begins with some quite awkward but realistic scenes.
!!! Spoiler Alert !!!
All in all, I think this is a great chickflick. Sometimes it’s a bit long, it could use some more humour but it’s mainly realistic which does it a lot of justice. Amy isn’t the best looking girl, but since she wrote the script she was obviously the best choice to play the role.
I do think the end is a bit over the top. The dancing with the cheerleaders, I like that they made it so she can’t really follow the dance for a 100% but in al reality I didn’t feel that she was that close with them to be able asking them for help. I also don’t feel like any actual person would put their heart on the line with a big plan like that to win their boy back. Most of us ladies will just be sobbing… In our bed… With ice cream. My rating? An 8 out of 10 it surely was a movie I enjoyed watching!
It’s almost Christmas and like many other people, I tend to run out of ideas of what gifts to buy for my family members. I have created a pinterest list that will hopefully help you out in deciding what to buy. Continue reading Christmas Gift Ideas #christmas #gifts
Culture Beats asked some countries how they would react if they had a son or daughter that came out as being gay. While the people in this video reacted very differently, the comment section seemed to be okay with the thought of having a gay son or daughter.
The comment section doesn’t exactly look to open minded either about this subject.

On the 4th Thursday of November this holiday takes place on every American and Canadians calendar. It is typically celebrated as a cozy family feast with a turkey on the menu. What am I talking about? Thanksgiving, of course! But… should it really be celebrated? That IS the question, because it’s certainly not such a pleasurable holiday for Indian native Americans neither as Turkeys.
Cut made a video of what goes on in the minds of Native Americans when they hear the words ‘Thanksgiving’, ‘Christopher Columbus’, ‘Redskin’, ‘Reservation’ and ‘Language’.
More videos by Cut can be checked out on their youtube channel.
As for the turkeys, Peta has obviously launched their ad (again) to show the world what a turkey really is and has to go through in order to get on your plate.

The Belgian authorities requested to not disclose details about police activity on social media since this might expose or interfere with police operations. Belgian Twitter users have been responding with cat pictures ever since, using the hashtag #BrusselsLockdown.
It’s not even such a bad thing, the public stays entertained while taking pictures of their furballs while any information regarding the lock down stays hidden. The cats in the pictures refuse to follow any authority or simply let us know they’re safe. Let’s face it, what would the internet be worth without cat pictures?
Belgium actual has a street cat problem, so if you’re from Brussels but don’t have a meow yet to photograph, now might actually be the the best time to adopt your furry little forever friend from one of the many rescues.

A collaboration between Bethesda Softworks the publisher of the Fallout Series, Amazon, and Carlsberg created ‘Fallout beer’. As we are all super excited with Fallout 4 that came out and big fans of the Danish Carlsberg beer brand, why not combine the two and add a little extra fun to the fun we’re already having? Unfortunately quite some fans were disappointed. Carlsberg did not change their blend at all for this beer, they simply changed the packaging. This beer is only be available in the U.K.
That’s not the only company Bethesda Softwork has teamed up with, together with Jones Soda ‘Nuka Cola Quantum’ got created. Which is sadly also a simple package change for the existing Jones Soda Berry Lemonade. Available at Target.
Even though it saddens me that neither Carlsberg or Jones Soda changed anything about their drinks, I think it is generally a good idea to add some extra promotion to your video game by creating the drinks.
Too late for buying this soda? Rosanna Pansino created her own Fallout 4 Nuka Cola tutorial. This might come in handy to surprise your friends at a party.
After drinking it, don’t forget to save the bottle caps, you never know what might happen!
Pip-boy is now available in phone App edition. The Application is created by Vault-Tec and RobCo Industries. It is completely free of cost and allows you to check your inventory, radio, map, statistics and play your holotape games. It has a high rating and has been bringing a lot of pleasure to the Fallout fans, but not exactly in the way you’d think.
A lot of evil brothers and sisters download it on their phone in order to troll their siblings, or simply, troll their friends or room mates. They will link it on their own mobile phone to the game of their target. Making them drop their weapons in combat, turning the radio off and on, … You get the idea.
The game didn’t receive the best reviews either. A lot of people are complaining that it turned into a basic open world shooter game, that Bethesda Softworks did an awful job on the RPG part. The game is supposable laggy and still contains quite some bugs and glitches. To left handed people this game isn’t suitable, you are not able to change the keyboard options to your number pad nor a separate keyboard pad and are pushed into using the arrow keys.
The good review include that the game is well balanced for combat, the character appearance is great and it contains an interesting and emotional main storyline. My personal favourite review came from Johnson aka E. Malcom from the US with 4 hours gameplay, who claimed “The game is like sex, except for the part that I actually have this game.”.
