So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

^  gold commentary is gold. The US President never has had any real, major power, and can only get things done with the approval of congress.

Google is ur friend!

Ok you want my opinion on hatred? Its a game literally about mass murder. No side-stepping or sugarcoating, just straight unjustified genocide. And yet… I remember Running With Scissors did that already. Shit they did that twice with the sequel being better, mainly because it was tounge-in-cheek and you could always go through the game non-violently. Hatred from what I gathered seems to just be trying to hard to be edgy and simple tasteless.

So yeah no thanks.

Ok never-mind. Now i’m at a point where everything’s confusing. Gamer-gate is getting confusing with the not your shield, the threats and all that shit. So you know what I think? I don’t care anymore. I think i’m just going to ignore, play some goddamn wait till this whole thing blows over because its seems like neither side is right and its just why should I bother. I’m done. Winter is coming and I need save for fucks for the hibernation period. So sorry but i’m done. Let me out.

02juddra:

I’ve tried as much as possible to ignore #GamerGate due to its complete and utter stupidity, but i’ve had enough of people using corrupt journalistic ethics as a cover for their misogyny. If you were campaigning against corruption in gaming journalism then talk about the fact that big publishers…

Soooo… I don’t really understand much about this gamergate thing, but the things that stuck out to me were feninism, games, opinions, and babies. So instead of picking a side, I’ll just talk about what I already know.

So feninism. I’m a girl. I’ve seen weird shit. But I’ve never seen a girl being…

GamerGate....Interview with a Game Programmer

  • Me: I'm talking with my fiancee, a video game programmer about GamerGate and recent events surrounding women in video game culture. To start off what's your name on tumblr?
  • Blake: GameDevRox
  • Me: And how long have you been programming?
  • Blake: Uhh since about 2007, so about seven years.
  • Me: What is GamerGate?
  • Blake: GamerGate is a smoke screen, an astro-turfed movement, that was started with different intentions and built up to obscure something that's pretty horrible, under the guise of real issues.
  • Me: What are the "real issues" and what is being manipulated?
  • Blake: There is a culture within video games, and technology, that is very anti-progressive
  • Me: A Traditionalist movement?
  • Blake: Yeah, absolutely. They are fighting against progress in the gaming industry and gaming press.
  • Me: Why? What's the rationale? What do you mean by traditionalist? What are they trying to stop?
  • Blake: These people are trying to keep certain things out of gaming, like feminism, and LBTGQA issues, "political correctness"--decency...that type of stuff
  • Me: So what do they want to see in gaming?
  • Blake: They want to see games focused around traditional male activities, Macho-man type stuff, hyper testosterone, sexualizing women, keeping them in background roles.
  • Me: So what exactly is GamerGate?
  • Blake: If you asked someone involved in GamerGate they'd tell you it's a consumer revolt.
  • Me: So it's these anti-progressives, traditionalists, in the industry fighting against, and rejecting the gaming industry as it changes.
  • Blake: That's what they'd tell you. There is something way more sinister. This whole thing was catalyzed by a guy who was pissed off at his girlfriend.
  • Me: We discussed this over dinner, but can you describe and talk about this for readers so we call understand?
  • Blake: The woman is Zoey Quinn
  • Me: Who is she? Is she knowledgeable and respected in the industry?
  • Blake: Extremely. She's a very knowledgeable and talented game developer. She broke up with her boyfriend- they broke up because-
  • Me: Let's not talk about her personal life-
  • Blake: Basically he went on a screen across various websites trying to tarnish her.
  • Me: So we all know is he involved in the industry?
  • Blake: No.
  • Me: So he's a guy she was dating, and for whatever reason he was angry with her and wanted to drag her name through the mud.
  • Blake: Yeah he just went onto gaming sites to rant and rave about his girlfriend. He framed it like this is a problem of women.
  • Me: Framed what?
  • Blake: He claimed she slept with a critic to get a favorable review of one of her games.
  • Me: Why did this turn into such a huge issue?
  • Blake: At first it wasn't. What ended up happening was certain people, men, read this...and they were hackers and they doxxed her.
  • Me: What is that?
  • Blake: They find out your personal address and post it online in public places--your address, phone numbers, social media sites.
  • Me: We talked about this, she was getting threats.
  • Blake: She's been getting threats since August 19th and she has been forced out of her home.
  • Me: What are these threats about? WHere is this rage coming from? Are these threats related to gaming?
  • Blake: No, these are personal attacks. It's slut shaming, MRAs...upset that you know she "hurt her man" blah blah.
  • Me: Ok. Can you comment on what's going on right now at Utah State?
  • Blake: Sure, Anita Sarkeesian was going to speak at Utah State University-
  • Me: And who is she?
  • Blake: She's a well known critic and commentator on games. She's been very critical of the game industry concerning the portrayal and role of women.
  • Me: There were death treats made against her because she was speaking at Utah State, and she decided to cancel because safety measures were not put into place to protect her and the audience. I have read several blogs and articles from video game enthusiasts. I want your response to this because, I am not male and I am not a big video game enthusiast. What do you say to people who say they understand where these gamers are coming from? They say they are hurt, misunderstood young men who are protecting the only thing and the only place they have ever felt at home. They start blaming women for their problems, who may or may not be socially awkward themselves.
  • Blake: Two things. Number one is that GamerGate is just fueled by anger, generally men who are late teens to early 30's. They have had experiences like you mentioned and they just jumped on this tidal wave that is justifying their anger.
  • Me: Is the anger justified?
  • Blake: It comes from thier personal lives, so yes. The issue is what they are doing with it. The problem is that it's being funneled and used by people with really evil and malicious intentions.
  • Me: Who are these people, what are their real intentions?
  • Blake: No one knows who these guys are. There are a few shadowy figures who want these powerful women taken down. Their chat logs have been entered into FBI evidence.
  • Me: The thing is, I understand intellectually what these guys are saying. You know my dad is a huge video game nerd, still playing D&D...and we're engaged and you're really into games and you were certainly not popular....but you have never treated women like garbage...and either has my father..
  • Blake: I have never treated women like garbage, but in high school I was a different person and I definitely felt the way these guys felt...rejected and angry.
  • Me: But these are not young boys, these are adult men pushing this movement, your peers in their mid-late 20's. I don't seek Geek Culture as an excuse for violence against women. We are in our 20's now...why do you think certain people still cling to this teenage-rage. Why has this come to define your industry?
  • Blake: Because no one has challenged it. No one within the industry has seriously challenged the issues, and women tend to leave the industry because they feel they do not have a place, and they don't.
  • Me; What should we expect to see going forward?
  • Blake: A lot of people are trying to separate the type of people involved in GamerGate. They want to sift out the people who are malicious and have them tried and dealt with legally. But you still have MRA's left...and people who believe there are corruption issues-
  • Me: Do you believe that?
  • Blake: Oh god yes, there are huge issues in the gaming industry, but people don't really understand what they are.
  • Me: Who else is apart of this movement?
  • Blake: There are just angry people, who don't understand the gaming industry and what exactly is going on. There is a lot of confusion.
  • Me: I'll ask you, do you think that, on some level the feminist movement has to take some blame? Do you think we have not looked at this issue serious, the issue of gaming.
  • Blake: No, I don't think that feminist have ever pushed away gamers. There is this whole idea that feminism is the push towards female dominance, and that's a common misconception.
  • Me: How do you think we should welcome and reach out to angry, misinformed young men? Put yourself back into your old high school self, what could I have said to you?
  • Blake: I would have wanted you to say, that you, that feminists, want everyone to have a place in the world, that it's about equality.
  • Me: We know that's what feminism is..but most young men have never really encountered the word feminism and don't really understand it-
  • Blake: I think most young men tend to hear the word "feminism" from adult males in their lives. I heard "feminist" first when I was 15 or 16 from the father of a friend, he was super conservative and he was 'making a joke' about women and how women really belong at home and they aren't capable of doing this-or-that. It always comes out at as "jokes" at first-
  • Me: I think that's a defense mechanism for these people to 'protect' themselves if they are called out for sexism, or racism, they can always claim they are "just joking". How did you take the joke?
  • Blake: I just thought well, you know I look at my mother, and I thought what he's saying isn't true. It's an issue maybe of not having a good example.
  • Me: We should clarify that your mother is-
  • Blake: She worked a full time job, she was a single parent for many years, and she worked her ass off. There was never a doubt in my mind that women could do anything men could do, that they are totally capable.
  • Me: You had a really empowered women in your life...did that make a difference for you?
  • Blake: Absolutely. She really taught me to respect women, not just as like objects or something to 'win' but as people.
  • Me: What would you say to these guys in GamerGate, just to finish up.
  • Blake: Do your research. Listen to people in the industry, not just random people. Game Developers, Industry Critics...be wary of your sources.
  • Me: You post a lot about games and feminist issues. You can follow Blake...@Ontheroxoz
  • Blake Also, you know, There will always be problems with games and it's totally ok to like things that have problems.
  • Me: To clarify you're talking about the corruption in the industry, not women?
  • Blake: Yeah absolutely. There are some real issues mixed up in GamerGate the concern about corruption is very real. I want people to know, who are concerned about that, that they can still like games and the industry despite the issues. We need to make space for women, we need to address legitimate corruption concerns, and we need to sort out this whole mess.
