I don't have an answer but I was the same way tbh. I didn't really know anything about trans stuff and didn't know any trans people that I knew of so I had a lot of pretty questionable questions and pre conceived notions that I'm glad people put up with as I learned about it.

At you gave it a shot. So many people just assume they won't like it without ever trying it.

There's a meme of a posting a picture of a possum screaming, and usually people call it "screm"

Putting forth the idea that by treating blue spheres as objects to be collected, rather than as sentient beings to be cherished with their own personalities despite the fact that the player themself is one, the game challenges us to consider that we are diminishing ourselves and each other and dooming ourselves to loneliness. It is a scathing critique of the solipsistic mindset that hegemonic capitalist ideology forces onto us all in this catch as catch can world, I assume. I have never played it.

There's protondb which is pretty similar to winedb that usually tells you what you need to do to get games working; Maybe I have just had the bad luck of picking games that don't work directly out of the box i'm not sure; but in one case (civ 5) i had to add a command line arg, and another game I had to add an LD_LIBRARY_PATH entry to get it to work on my machine.

Could also be that i'm running on arch which isn't officially supported, maybe if you stick with things like ubuntu it works better. Nevertheless, it usually has involved some fiddling for me, but once you get it to launch it's been pretty reliable.

Proton is pretty good, it usually requires at least one random setting change for each game I have tried on it to launch tho; like add a command line argument to the launcher type stuff.

That's not that hard to do but for people who don't know computers that well it is kind of a high bar to entry.

It's when you have computers do money stuff. If you talk about it a lot people think you're really savvy and rich so...
