It's just a matter of if you give a shit or not.


There are enough people on this planet that anything you can imagine will be offensive to some of them...

Not really. Dark humour is like a rite of passage down under.

When we're wondering whether you meant something to be offensive, part of the question is, "what possible non-offensive meaning could you have had?"

So, OP, when you named a Magikarp/Gyrados after Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, what non-offensive meaning did you have?


i didn't mean it to be offensive, the CP level - which is 1944 for this one- is at random, I couldn't name it Nazi or hitler now could I?
that's the only other thing that came to mind


That's not the point - the point is, you had some idea in mind when you named your Magikarp or Gyrados PTSD. What was it?


tacky humor? I have PTSD , a different kind but still ptsd, and im the one who made it, I guess there are just some people who have tacky humor

Tacky yes. I had a cousin who commit suicide from PTSD. Turns out shooting a ~7 year old girl running at your tank with a grenade will do that to you. Turns out an automatic 50 cal will make a person explode if you hit them enough.
gosh I wished I hadn't read this

hope things are better for you......as shallow as it might sound..


This was years ago. I have gotten over it a long time ago. I just find PTSD jokes tacky now... Which is pretty hypocritical of me since I usually love dark humor!

Sorry for being graphic though.

Yeah, it looks like the mechanics are different. I started reading some of the posts below and they run some weird sets and they talk about candy lol.

Magikarp make 'murica gr8 again plz


I thought Bernie would be like my magikarp grossly underestimated and then is a badass -president- but alas..

A bit of an ambiguity - did you mean, "I have (a type of) PTSD (in real life), therefore I named my Magikarp PTSD," or, "I named my Magikarp PTSD, so now by a literal interpretation of the phrase 'I have PTSD'"?

Um... no I don't... that's why I asked. I could see someone meaning either of those two meanings I said, and it's possible there's a third I'm missing.

Thanks for clearing that up. If you want my thoughts on this, it would seem like people claiming naming the Magikarp PTSD is offensive are not only wrong, but counterproductive? Yelling at someone with PTSD for "being offensive" by talking about it is not exactly helpful.

Simply put? Why should I give a fuck about the name you chose to a pokémon? Besides, I really didn't get the joke on PTSD. (Which is a very good indicator that people are nipticking on that particular one.). So, I think the mistake is yours to put this on a social media. Usually, people get very invasive in these places. I think it was a bad idea to show it on Facebook. But do not get me wrong: they overreacted for sure. However, I cannot blame them for being jumpy.
