Ich fragte mich gestern abend, wann wohl nach den Selfies nun das erste Pokémon bei Begräbnissen auftaucht. Heute morgen dann so: Pokemon at Funerals – Catch 'em before they're gone. („This Tumblr brought to you by Jason Feifer, the guy who brought you Selfies at Funerals“.) You so predictable, Internet.
Systemic Pokémon-based Discrimination: This Bakery Is Charging Different Prices Depending On What ‘Pokemon Go’ Team You’re On
Professional Pokémon-Trainer for hire (das Craigslist-Posting wurde mittlerweile gelöscht).
A Reddit thread on r/theredpill is even encouraging men to use the game to pick up women. Normally, that’d be fine—meeting people via participating in a shared interest is kind of a healthy dating tip! But these guys seem to be advocating for Pick Up Artist tactics.
“You're going to meet a TON of women, likely surrounded by very weak, young, nerdy guys, and approaching them is as easy as pie,” writes the original poster. “All of the hard work, such as breaking the ice, is already done for you. All you have to do is show up and spit your favorite day game.” He also suggests dropping a lure at a Pokéstop and waiting for hot women to show up.
Later in the thread, users rave about the “quality” of women they’re meeting. “I have not seen any stereotypical ‘gamers’ using the app,” writes one. “It's only been fairly thin and attractive people.” Another thoughtful lad says, “I thought it would just be a bunch of nerdy rainbow dyed haired thick frame triggered glasses feminists playing it. While I have seen plenty of them playing it, I have seen a lot of non-geeky or non-SJW/feminist looking HBs playing it as well.”
Pokémon-Regulation: Assemblyman ponders Pokemon Go legislation
Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, a Brooklyn Democrat and established nanny-stater, said he is "concerned” that people playing Pokemon Go, the viral augmented reality game, pose a risk to public safety.
"Like any new technology, it has its advantages and disadvantages, and like any new technology, it has to be looked at very, very carefully. Everything comes down to people’s responsibility as well as corporate responsibility,” Ortiz said Tuesday. "Every single one of us who might want to play this game have to be very cautious. Who’s sending what, and what is the follow up? Everyone should be cautious to make sure that no intruders will be able to tap into this and have people think they’re going to the park when in reality they’re going to a be targeted by some rapist. People could think they’re going to the bank, but in reality, someone is waiting to take their money.”
