people make fun of the duck and cover song but kids in US schools are trained to duck under their desks in case if a gun shooting. I don't see the difference, and i am surprised you didn't bring it up

They are a cult. I find it interesting that you failed to mention that.

This little story she tells at 20:30 - I don’t get why she took the guys remark as some sort of micro aggression. From the way she told it, the guy basically just said “Oh I didn’t know girls played magic... Apparently they do.” What’s wrong with that? If he said “Girls shouldn’t play Magic”, then okay, that’d be different. But I think it was an innocent comment on his part.

samantha because the guy, who plays magic, doesn't see it. whereas you, who (may or may not play) is just assuming that they must obviously play (maybe you have your own circle of friends). I've been to a Friday night magic, were there girls there? nope. did I care? no. but I made the observation. being offended at this is so silly.

Jones Probably because it is a microaggression. Why wouldn't women play magic? It's insulting to have someone assume you wouldn't play a game just because you're a woman. That's the definition of a microagression!
