Odds and ends Super Murica day Turbo EX plus 1: Twitter stupidity and other stuff.

 Street Fighter 6 MIGHT have a create a character... I know the odds and ends promised Twitter stupidity, but the date format is obviously a Street Fighter reference. So SF6 MIGHT have a create a character feature for the World Tour Mode... which was said to be somewhat similar to Shenmue... I have a confused boner right now... I love Street Fighter, I love Shenmue, but I don't know if they're a Peanut Butter and Chocolate combo... if Create a Character is real, I'd like to know how extensive it is. Will it be restricted to World Tour, or will we be able to use our CAFs in other modes like in SoulCalibur5? The people want to know.

Sometimes, I just hate Twitter. Especially, when so-called social justice minded folks say stupid things like this:
What in the actual fuck?

If you're writing in English and use non-commonly known terms from other languages, it's common courtesy to have a footnote, explanation, or translation of said terms for one simple reason. An author is trying to tell a story, convey a message. If an author PURPOSELY obfuscates the message by hiding it in another language and not delivering the information, that person is a cabeza de chorlito, which literally means golden plover head, or bird-brained.

If you do this, you can't complain about (white) people not being able to understand or empathize with BIPOC authors, if said authors are making their story unreachable to groups outside their own. It's not about "entitlement" it's about conveying the message clearly, so it can be fully understood by the audience.
