Boys

Let’s have Real Talk for a minute

You have, with the goal of ‘kicking the girls out of the clubhouse’, terrorized a woman with rape and death threats so thoroughly that she no longer can ENTER her house, never mind being unable to leave. The sacred land of video games is SO IMPORTANT to some people that it’s come to this- ONE WOMAN was publicly successful in displaying equality missteps in videogaming; Anita Sarkeesian has taken some huge steps in exposing just how trope-filled and onesided videogames have historically been.

I’ll stop your inevitable ‘NOT ALL BOYS/MEN/GUYS’ right in its tracks- shut up. Shut up and listen, you childish fucking whiners, because a woman’s life and livelihood is WAY more important than your delicate dudebro feelings.

And, you know what, if you don’t agree with her assessments, I can’t stop you. Fine. There are points to debate there, and her arguments aren’t foolproof. Nothing is- but she makes good points that DO NOT THREATEN THE QUALITY OF VIDEO GAMES OR THE VG COMMUNITY. If anything, her observations and videos (definitely!) help pinpoint a lot of tropey problems that can be eliminated to make games better in the future! Imagine it. Better video games. Innovative, new characters (MAYBE THEY COULD BE WOMEN WOAH HOLY SHIT) and situations and social environments that you couldn’t get from, say, Call of Duty: White-Bread Male Protagonist 5th Edition the Sequel.

But, oh, “Video games are gonna be overrun by women! Blar-humbug-fart-noise! I am so masculine and a man and manly that I can’t POSSIBLY think outside my man-box for one second and acknowledge that my race and gender are not universal and only appealing to me as a demographic is HURTING THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY BY ALIENATING EVERYONE ELSE!” 

…End hypothetical speech bubble.

Geez. I’m just… furious. I’m so fucking angry that a community that I’m part of has stooped to this level- yes, I’m part of the video game community. I’m a gamer. I love RPGs, mostly, and have been suffering my way through Dark Souls II. So, I’m part of the video gaming community, and people in the SAME COMMUNITY AS ME have DRIVEN A WOMAN FROM HER HOME.

Does this terrify and infuriate anyone else? It should. It does for me because I see my emotions and opinions mirrored in a lot of Anita’s work. I want women in video games; I want to be more than an ‘alternate’ or ‘option’ or to be told “Just play as this given protagonist, he’s white and a guy and like 40 years old but you can do it, right? You want the story/gameplay/romances in this game, so who cares what your character looks like.” 

If I can play like that, if I HAVE played like that for over TEN YEARS BECAUSE I’VE HAD NO OTHER OPTION, white little pissbabies can suck it up and play a WOC or transgender or just ANY KIND OF WOMAN IN GENERAL HOLY FUCK I PROMISE YOUR BALLS WON’T FALL OFF, IT’LL BE OKAY, JUST PLAY THE DAMN GAME.

I shouldn’t be scared to be a part of a community that brings me such happiness. I don’t want there to be horrific pieces of shit in my delicious gaming sundae; because guaranteed, I will eat that sundae for the wonderful story nuts and character ice cream and gameplay cherries, but I will also be sick to my stomach once the shit-nuggets register in my gut. Also, heaven forbid those slimy little shit-wads register my thoughts and opinions and turn their ever-hateful gaze my way. Hell. 

Grow up. Call out this miserable behavior if you see it; laughing at it and tolerating it has only let the situation of trolling and doxing and harassment escalate to the disgusting levels that are chasing Anita from her home and threatening her parents with death.

Dad: “Your aunt has done ancestry-dot-com for our family, actually.”
Me: “Okay, so, what are we, since I’ve never known?”
Dad: “Mutts. Basically every country in Europe. Poland, Russia-“
Me: “Dad, Russia isn’t in Europe.”
Dad: “…Really?”

Excuse me but what exactly is the Naruto AU Movie and where can I watch it?

Road to Ninja, google it and click on whatever anime streaming site comes up

Naruto and Sakura are sent to opposite day land by Madara which leaves your heart in tiny Uzumaki and Haruno family pain

My favorite part of this entire poster is how Rock Lee is just sprite-flipped

Showtime!

Showtime!

Going to work as Elsa today- shhh! I’m incognito!

If I made video games and slept with a journalist to ‘get ahead’ and get a good review out of the lay, and all I got were two sidelong mentions of my game being on Steam Greenlight?
…Man, I would want my sex back, 0/10, would not re-fuck.

So my puppy got surgery on her ear to aspirate a blood pocket and now she has a precious floppy ear that makes her super-adorable

This is a video of roughly 30 dogs jumping and swimming and barking and playing 

It makes me so happy

So in honor of my Smaug dress finally being done (basically XD), I’ve got three Smaug babies up for sale! Each is Blood/Blood/Gold Crackle, and there are two boys and one girl (all siblings). I’ve got them for 35k at the moment, but would be completely willing to look at other offers or trades! :) Message me here or at Lair #35496 (cgeez) if interested- Thank you! :D

I feel so useless sitting here. What can I do to help Ferguson??

I’m just about ready to vomit about the state of Missouri and Ferguson right now. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing when it first started; I couldn’t believe how it escalated.

This is absolutely terrifying. 

I don’t care how far away I am; the fact that this is allowed to continue, illegal, unjust, unchecked, is abhorrent and I can use nice words to describe my hatred and fear of the brutality and injustice… but words like ‘awful’ and ‘sickening’ and ‘terrifying’ look so minor when placed next to the situation in context because Ferguson and their police are so much worse right now than those words can illustrate.

I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.
