I’M SORRY BUT THIS REALLY PISSED ME OFF AND I NEEDED TO VENT.
So I liked this page last year for the shits and gigs, as you do. I found it funny, and let slide the few sexist posts.
Only recently- and after I got a tumblr- did I really start to notice the abundance of rape, sexist and racist jokes appearing on my news feed. And it pissed me off.
I said nothing, however, because what could I do? Send in a message to the page and get labelled a whore and a slut by the Admins as I’ve seen so many people do?
Then this motherfucking gem popped up.
I usually don’t get involved in these sorts of things; if I do my comment gets lost more often than not and goes unnoticed. But I had to comment, I really had to.
I thought my argument was valid and whole, and I was actually rather happy when he admin directly replied to my comment.
I narrowed down my five favourite games ever and posted them.
Of course, I got beaten and labeled down once again.
When I asked for a rational clarification of his definitions of “casual” and “core” he did not reply. It was only when I directly insinuated the bias of his claim did I get a response.
“A feminist I see. No arguments need to be made. Good luck with getting them eggs fertilized”
Note the use of “feminist” as an insult.
I have had my fair share of gender specific hate regarding gaming. I get told I am a fake and a bitch if I get a high score; I get told to “suck a dick because you are better at that, bitch” if I get a low score; I get told to “get back in the kitchen, slut” without any prompt at all, simply because I have a vagina.
I am beyond sick of this. I hate the fact that if a male who hypothetically plays a few hours of CoD can be easily called a gamer by the wider community but I if were to say that I was a level 34 on Skyrim I would immediately be called a fake geek girl, a casual gamer and a liar.
I hate the fact that, even though 45% of gaming consumers are female, developers and publishers still believe that there is not a large enough demographic for female protagonists.
I hate the fact that most women in video games are no more than sexulised objects in skimpy clothing.
I hate the fact that I cannot enjoy a game without being labeled and branded because of the fact that I posses a vagina and not a penis.
~sorry about the long post clogging up your dash. I needed to vent~
Off-topic somewhat, but important.
And if I were to say that my two favorite games were Shadow of the Colossus, and Rule of Rose, would I be fake?
The game does not judge you on your gender, so why should someone else?
This guy needs to be punched. Casual my ass!
I’ve been hearing this alot with girls being pissed off about the lack of women in games and when they’re present they’re always sexualized. Um they do the same to the guys, girls. Just like tv, movies, and everything else there is. People respond to sex I suppose. I don’t know how many times I’m playing a game that I guess you can say is geared towards men and the main male character is running around either half naked or always has some reason to take his clothes off or they get vaporized or something in battle. C’mon… it happens to both genders that’s just life. I’m not saying it’s ok or whatever just saying it happens to the guys too. Of course no one complains about that though do they cause you get your dose of man candy you’re fine. Alot of games feature women who wear the same clothes and styles as present trends soooo what does that tell you? Besides that I’ve been playing games most of my life and I’ve never once referred to myself as a gamer. It’s stupid. Who cares about the label? If you enjoy playing then play them and don’t give a fuck what others think about it.
2in Silver Nouveau plugs from Tawapa.
Tattoo by Bill Foulkrod at Deep Six Tattoos in Philadelphia.
It is written in Circular Galllifreyan, and they are all either quotes or something directly related to one of my top nerd obsessions.
The big one is “Kneel before the Lord Dragon, or you will be knelt” from Wheel of Time series.
Then there is “May the force be with you” from Star Wars.
Then “I open at the close” from Harry Potter.
Then “Winter is coming” from ASoIaF/Game of Thrones.
Then we got “Allons-y” from the 10th doctor.
And finally “Kal-El” which is Supermans real name.
A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film
So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.
Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.
Great father till the end
