A lot of dumb people in the world. I’ve been told these things too many times.

Now juxtaposed to this quote that kakimari had found:
“video games should not be changed dramatically just because females want to be superior. Understand your place as equals to men”

Which is what has been spewed all day to counter the women in the game industry trend on twitter that has been going around the past 24 hours or so. Andres had summed up these neckbearded comments pretty well as “Sexism won’t go away if you keep talking about it you stupid sluts!” (note, he didn’t say this he’s making a hyperbole of these young white gamer boys feeling threatened by women asking for equal treatment in the community and industry)

what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works

no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.

what the fuck kind of fragile-ass human being can’t handle the thought of games NOT being misogynist bullshit
is your concept of yourself that weak that if someone goes “you should stop saying ‘rape’ like it’s a verbal multitool” you just lose the ability to function and are all of a sudden being TERRIBLY OPPRESSED
goddamn it

you know
i’m fucking tired explaining to idiots that i’m not asking to be handed anything on a “goddamn silver platter”
i’m not asking for anything fucking special
you know what i am asking for?
i’m just asking for people to make games that appeal to everyone. i’m just asking for a solid plot, well developed characters, and decent gameplay. i just want to play my fucking games that i fucking payed for without feeling sexualized. a little fucking respect would be nice. 
is that so fucking hard?
apparently it is. because i’ve had to explain this to so many fucking people. 
oh but the demographics. we must obey the demographics. because of course demographics never change and shift over time. 

Seriously what do people have against the fact that female nerds are a reality?  I guess some people didn’t get the memo girls do not in fact have cooties.

62 Things the Avengers are Not Allowed to Do.

57. If it makes Tony giggle for more than 30 seconds, it isn’t allowed.
58. If it makes Natasha crack a smile, it’s probably illegal.
59. Thor taking Jane to see Asgard does not count as an alien abduction. Clint should stop referring to it as such.
60. Just because Bruce agreed to work in Tony’s lab, does not mean he needs to get a “Property of Stark Industries” tattoo.
61. Tony is not allowed to design a robot to draw said tattoo on Bruce when he falls asleep in the lab.

For anyone who only sees gender and sex in black and white, here’s proof by the lovely humon that nature is just as fluid with representations of gender and sex as we are.

you guys, you guys nature is so beautiful, i don’t even have words you guys

ah, this is really cool

THANK YOU, YES. 

Also: clownfish hang out in groups of a few males and one dominant female. If the female dies, the biggest and toughest male transitions to being a female, and takes over egg laying. Also: lady giraffes are in heat seasonally. Outside of their time, the male giraffes just hang around screwing each other, which constitutes the majority of their sexual encounters. Also, bighorn sheep have been known to have gay sex just to say hello. Also: Bedbugs are born pregnant, as the male fetus they carry impregnates the other female fetuses inside them. When the now pregnant unborn bedbugs are old enough, they simply chew their way out of their mother and wander off. Also: snow monkeys have tons of lesbian sex to establish dominance hierarchies, with the monkeys that are best at giving head getting a pass up to the top of the lady ladder. 

Also: bonobos. Just… bonobos. 

Movies that cram animals into our culture’s idealized heteronormative nuclear family paradigm — who ignore reality to try and propagate an unrealistic ideal that doesn’t even hold true across our own species— make me SO MAD.

Yes all of this.  Also: parrotfish, snails, and some frogs can all transform their sex.  Virtually all male parrotfish were female in adolescence, and are bigger and more brightly colored after becoming male.  Many birds have been observed in female-female mating pairs.

If I ever have children, my only request is that they follow whatever path makes them happy. I will support them wholeheartedly in whatever they do, given that it is within reason (as in, I won’t support them if they choose to blow up a country or something). 

this is excellent. pretty much exactly how i plan to raise my future kid(s). the only one i’m a little nitpicky with is the one about prom; while i didn’t give a shit about my prom night because i thought it was pretty stupid (and i still maintain that opinion), i don’t think it’d be fair to force that viewpoint on my kid(s). i’d basically just allow them to decide if they wanted to go at all or not, but let them know that it won’t be the end of the fucking world if they decide not to attend. otherwise, everything else is spot-on.

yes, this is good. 

Mostly agree. Prom is fine if they want to, and I will encourage them to not have sex very young, but would never call them a whore or think of them as one. 

I am crazy worried about the child of whoever is posting the original stuff. Awful.

‘course, their kid will just rebel like a motherfucker and fail to be the homunculus their ghastly, controlling parent wanted.

Like kids do.

wibble!
