Watching Captain America: The First Avenger for the first time

  • After Steve's transformation
  • GF: Are we supposed to believe that his pants still fit?
  • During Chase Scene
  • Me: No, dear, he's wearing Manpris
  • GF: I don't think the waist would even fit, but ok. Also, we're adults, we can say he's wearing capris
  • Me: I think you mean CAP-pris...
  • GF: ...
  • Me: *PunHusky.jpg*

Whenever somebody refers to “tumblr” as some unified group in a negative way on here I’m automatically suspicious of what they say because 99% of the time “tumblr” is just a thinly-veiled codeword for “the marginalised people on tumblr I don’t like” and the person in question is trying to hide their misogyny/transphobia/transmisogyny/racism/ableism/etc by removing the labels of people they’re referring to. Essentially, it’s used in a similar fashion to the term “social justice warrior,” as a way of depersonalising members of marginalised groups.

Red Fox Shiba

Girlfriend showed me this, and we both kind of  ::boggle:: … She looks identical to Rogue … like REALLY creepily so, except for the fox boots and ears.

Research found the owner’s OP on Reddit

Also, to clarify, the ‘boots’ aren’t her natural fur color. She was temporarily dyed to resemble a Red Fox. It doesn’t look all that similar in the photos but in person, it’s pretty uncanny. We get a lot of interesting comments while we’re walking about.

You use irrelevant tags. And on a lot of posts.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

Everyone on the Enterprise is such a dick to Worf. They throw him a birthday party even though they know it will make him uncomfortable and sing Happy Birthday to him in poorly-translated Klingon. They give him a bunch of crap presents because, lol, wouldn’t it be funny to give Worfpainting, yeah yeah do it Data. And the whole time they’re laughing at his attempts to politely deal with it.

And then his son sends him a genuinely thoughtful gift, a cast of his forehead ridges, and Worf is genuinely delighted for a moment! But no time for that, time for more painting jokes, lol lol lol

This is actually one of my top 5, maybe even top 3, favorite episodes of TNG. Michael Dorn does such an incredible job showing just how difficult Worf finds it to live amongst other species, with no other Klingons around.
The shifts from one reality to the next were subtle and yet distinct, and then you have LocutusWins!Riker and his terrified desperation.
But oh did my heart ache for Deanna once she realized that Worf had never courted her, never married her…

This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

Actually Cas has the magic dick of death because 100% of the women he touched his dick to are dead. At least 60% of the women that Sam slept with are still alive. But I guess Cas doens't matter very much.

Is this… is this a ‘well actually’ for my doofy response to brinconvenient?

Yes, I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what it is. :p I got one too. :)
