There’s been a lot of chatter in the environments surrounding Doomtastic about safe spaces lately. While this is of course always an issue in any situation or social network, some recent happenings in our area and some of the events we follow have led to more discussion.

I opened my front door after work today to find two of my housemates watching One Punch Man and discussing Stephen Universe. Another one is working on a Arios model in our craft room while someone played Xenoverse in one room and Tales of Berseria. Yes it is a lot of people. It is also a big house. The point, however, is that we are fortunate enough to be a household of geeks. (In case you did not know, pretty much all of Doomtastic shares a house and there are a few other geeks here besides). We kind of live the nerd life as our roommate says.
