Yeah, good job proving that you’re not sexist, guys.

Once again I do not support anita’s message in any way and agree with her on very few things but she in no way ever deserved death threats and harassment and a bunch of uneducated fucks harassing her every time she tries to say something.
Good job guys, you all proved how progressive you are.

Why do people do this? Always add the disclaimer that you absolutely totally do not agree with her at all BUT. Why does it matter in this context?
I mean, sure, I’m glad that you, unlike many people who disagree with her, don’t think she deserves harassment. That’s good. 
But what would it take for there to be a strong show of support for her that isn’t full of caveats about how you disagree?

And furthermore, what in the FUCK is there to disagree with her on? I mean, if she likes potatoes and you like carrots, then what the fuck ever. But how can you disagree with her analysis of misogyny in video games when literally every time she breathes, dudes show up to threaten to rape her and blow her up? Practically her entire life has become one long series of bullshit that proves her right at every turn. Fuck you if you don’t believe her. Fuck you if you don’t agree with her.

Easy to disagree with her reviews, there’s proof SHE HASN’T PLAYED THE GAMES SHE REVIEWS. She can have her opinion, but when it’s uninformed at best: it’s a con.

She’s a ‘professional victim’ because she profits off of her so called ‘victim’ status. if she didn’t make money off of it and the death threats were legitimate, I’d side with her.
but she’s a con artist, so I don’t.

She doesn’t review games, she points out common tropes in them.
I love how for years, in every gaming/tv show/movie community I’ve been in, I’ve always heard people talking about tvtropes as a fun timesuck. But now that there’s a lady who points out tropes related to women in video games, all hell breaks loose. 
Her point is valid, calling women professional victims is misogynistic and flat out stupid, especially since the people calling her a professional victim are the ones harassing her and sending her threats or being complicit in it. How the fuck do you harass, threaten,insult someone for years and when she speaks out about it, play the she’s ”victimizing herself!!” card?
The ”she’s a con artist, victimizing herself, her examples are inaccurate” people are the exact same ones who had a problem with her simply making a series of videos about tropes in video games to begin with, who are now desperately trying to look like they have legit reasons to hate her since their rabid misogyny has long been since pointed out and is the reason her series has gotten so much attention and had people donating so much money to her in the first place. 


SHE PLAYS THE GAMES SHE TALKS ABOUT. Or at least some of them! She just tweeted not too long ago about how frustrating it is to play a really sexist game for a long time just to get to one scene only to not use that footage!ALSO SHE’S POINTING OUT TRENDS IN VIDEO GAMES THAT ARE VERY OBVIOUS AND PREVALENT, AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH HER YOU MUST BE BLIND.She’s not saying to get rid of those games. She’s not even saying to get rid of those elements of games entirely! She just wants games to stop relying on the same tired, sexist, and violently misogynistic tropes (like the damsel in distress, or the women as background decoration tropes)! She’s trying to make games BETTER, and MORE CREATIVE, so people will TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY.She is literally doing nothing but good for video games as a type of media, and if you disagree with her, you’re saying that sexism doesn’t exist in games, which is literally insane.Maybe she called a game sexist, and you think it’s not sexist because of the context, fine. You can disagree on that minute point.But she’s not doing this to call out individual games. She’s pointing out huge patterns in games that are problematic. Is one damsel in distress a problem? No. Are 8,000 damsels in distress a problem? YES.It’s time for video games to start telling more stories about more diverse people. It’s time for video games to get more creative. If you disagree with that…I don’t know, I guess you hate playing well-written games.

Noora Räty’s words upon her retirement.
"In fact, I don’t feel that women’s hockey can grow or get any better in the future if the USA or Canada don’t get a professional league started soon. That is the next critical step that our sport needs to take or our sport will never be respected like it should. Asking players to work full-time and then training like a pro athlete at the same time is just too much and unfair."
I agree. For every grown man who calls women’s hockey ‘exhibition games’ or ‘fake hockey’, there are a dozen little girls who are growing up to love a game and a way of life that means the world to them. For every asshole hockey fan who scoffs at the idea of a women’s league there are a dozen fans, male and female, who would be excited to see a hard fought game between two worthy opponents, regardless of gender. There is never a good time to do something world changing. There is only a necessary time.

A researcher tells the following story about her own experience of discovering the seriousness with which young children take gender stereotypes. While interviewing 3 to 6 year olds about their career aspirations, she asked each of them what they would want to be when they grew up if they were members of the opposite sex. Their responses showed that not only did most of the children choose careers that fit the stereotypes of the other gender but also that their perceptions of the limitations imposed by gender were sometimes quite extreme. One little girl confided with a sigh that her true ambition was to fly like a bird, but she could never do it because she was not a boy! One little boy put his hands on his head, sighed deeply, and said helplessly that if he were a girl he would have to grow up and be nothing (Beuf, 1974 as cited by Lips, 2008, p. 401).

The real world.

This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.

And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.

That’s not even the only reason why it was the best show ever









The world needs to be a little more Raven

Don’t leave out the part where the model says “I don’t even look like that”

I saw this post by bi-privilege and I whole-heartedly agree with the notion that this is a preferable term or at least a good alternative to the LGTBQIAP+ acronym. No more people complaining about “how many letters are we gonna add”,
no more groups getting forgotten because someone is too lazy to type out the entire acronym,
and to me it has a more inclusive and equal feeling for all included groups.
Plus, as punkrockluna pointed out, MOGAI could also be used as an adjective replacing the word “queer”.
Queer is being used by a lot of people within the community but we should not forget that it is also a slur and not everyone is comfortable with being labeled or even labeling themselves as such.
I would absolutely love it if we could make this a thing.

I like this!

I’m glad this is going around! I’ve seen MOGAI used before but didn’t know what it meant. This clears things up nicely!
