Steve gets emasculated.

One day, you're going about your business, working in your blue collar job of excavating and building, and suddenly Nintendo shows up and cuts your cock off.

This is why we need Unions, people.

One moment you're yanking it on a literal circle jerk zoom call with your media friends.  The next moment you're a verb.

The last time I went toobin, my brother-in-law cut the boat across the wake so fast that when I came down I lost my shorts and had my own meat controversy.

One man whom I don't know, has now made stoires of me playing arcade games, rather awkward.

/ let me tell you about that time I was Toobin at the local arcade, I went longer than anyone else in the state, people came by to stare in awe at me.
// I bow my head towards poor steve, his loss is everyone's loss.

Markus Persson,aka "Notch"-the legendary creator of "Minecraft"-has revealed in a recent blog post that all characters in his game occupy a genderless space.Persson writes that despite the main character being named "Steve," "the Human model is intended to represent a Human Being. Not a male Human Being or a female Human Being, but simply a Human Being."
A short, yet eloquent and insightful post, Persson concludes with, "also, as a fun side fact, it means every character and animal in Minecraft is homosexual because there's only one gender to choose from."

Yeah, shame he Rowling'd himself, but the basic premise that Steve wasn't supposed to be packing in the first place is still sound.  It's like the comments in a VR dance game streamer I saw said:

Q: Are you a boy or a girl?
A: I'm a dancer.
Q: Yeah, but what's in your pants?
A: Rhythm.

It's just not relevant to building square things out of smaller square things.

Honestly given how badly he imploded later on I wouldn't take what he said as anything more than that Steve was always meant to be placeholder/programmer art that ascended into iconic status, given you've been able to replace his texture with whatever you wanted for the majority of the game's life.

/lost my replacement Steve texture at some point
//could probably remake it much better anyway

I didn't realize it was that controversial.  Who doesn't like a good float?

That game involved throwing cans at rednecks and authority figures. It's basically Antifa Simulator '88.

Sure, Steve walks around with his meat flapping in the breeze and he gets god damn rewarded. I do it and it's pervert this and call the police that

Forgot about that game until I just remembered the old roller rink I went to as a kid had this.
