Douchebags & Haters

Hey,

A couple days ago at school I was reading a book (Planetkill to be exact) and one of my classmates, tyler, came up to me and asked me what I was reading. So I showed him and he flipped through the book. But, on the last page, was the ad for the warhammer 40000 game. So he started laughing at me and telling me that this was for fucktards, gays, mexicans, and so on and so forth. This pissed me off, because I enjoy my hobby as much as he does being a asshole. My best friend connor was next to me, and he kinda said stuff about how it looked cool and he would like to see my army. Tyler just called us both gay and walked away.

I was wondering if anyoine else has had problems with people like this. I live in No where land, Florida (ya, the redneck bit) and the only place to get GW stuff is at a comic store, so it is completly unknown. So, has anyone had a jackas come up to them and call the hobby gay? Just wondering.

Nick

Well. No one in my school actually knows I am into this, I keep my private life exactly that, I see no need for myself to tell them so I do not. So thus, I have never recieved a problem from anybody.

You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

In school for us it's like "Youre Nerd, get a life" and nothing more... worse when it comes to families... Often people here find 20-year-olds painting models as disturbing and immature... I think that going every weekend to a bar could be immature -_- Or playing pool with some retards... but hey, I like those too.

People often see it as just childish and that's also a problem, but i can't understand guys who offend or misname people who play or read about it... The guy calling you a gay cuz you read something related to 40k... What the hell? It's just horrible... I, for wanting to be a police officer in my youths was called a Bitch ( but in a cruder, Polish word) which in my country is only a WOMAN who thrives on PROSTITUTION... I hate fucktards that misname and offend people...

Besides, many people are gay and you don't even know it... maybe he was a Crupto-gay? that doesn't make him bad... Being a Jerk IS

has anyone called me gay because of it, yes
what do I do, nothing, except feel sorry that there worthless intellect could only manage gay as an insult, I mean calling someone happy as an insult is a little silly.

My friends think it's cool. I'm only teased for being emo, not for Warhammer

It is rather hard being bottled up with no one who I know plays 40k. If someone asks what it is, I have to go into the "You know the game Dawn of War?" conversation.

Happy and colourful. Thats why I brought a Hawaiian shirt- 'why yes I am happy, and look I'm also colourful'.

I don't advertise the fact that 40K is one of my hobbies, I read a lot of the books at work but when asked I say I don't play the game it's based on (which is sort of true as I haven't actually played in a good long while).

Sounds like typical highschool wankery, wouldn't be any different if you were playing the bassoon or on the debate team. I keep a few figures on my desk at work depending on what I'm painting at the time, and most people who come by my area comment that they think it's pretty nifty.

there's pretty much people with imagination and people without.

the people who have neglected their imagination thinking its only for losers are the ones who have completely lost it by the end of highschool.

Some people think its gay, but I dont give a crap. I have other hobbies too like playing my bass and playing in my band. and pretty much everyone enjoys somethign that other people think is stupid. I think football (u.s.) is kind of retarded myself, but pretty much everyone here likes it.

what I am more surprised about, is how many people have stepped into my room or something at college, seen my models and been like,"OH shit warhammer!? i almost got into this once." or "i used to play" or w/e.

You can never be prepared for the unexpected
