You can be a DM and not be a piece of shit. The seat doesn't come with "power" but with responsibility. Unfortunately, like most positions of perceived authority it tends to attract some of the worst types.
This makes me immeasurably sad.

100% this. DMing is like hosting a dinner party. You're not better than the guests, you're simply playing a different role in an event you're all there to enjoy together. https://t.co/MnCpZlauMk
