I get your point. However, in all movements it's always a miniscule part that actually, well, does something. People partake mostly in "spirit". Sports are a good example of this. We've all got Our Team, the one we support. However, it's not us out there on the field kicking the ball. It's not us winning the matches, not us out there taking the hits. And yet we still say Our Team, even though we have no actual part in its success, or lack of thereof.I'm not criticizing the phenomenon, only stating my surprise of it. We have these totally made up ideas of what makes us a Unity of some sorts. There's no actual reason why one should feel patriotic just because they happen to live in a certain country. There's no imperative to feel one gay person has anything in common with another person. 1 similarity hardly defines a person, yet we hold on to these labels ever so tightly.I don't get why being a gamer should be in contrast with a productive professional career. I don't get why being heterosexual should make you less open-minded. But if you look at the stories the Media in general tends to tell, than such thoughts seem to be in contrast against some odd Political Correctness Agenda, where simply being in a particular minority is a virtue in of itself, and that implies that being in the majority is a flaw. As much as minorities get discriminated, often times the Media paints them with halos on their heads. Just because.
