Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.
gamer nerds are so dramatic
I strongly encourage everyone to check out the tweet and marvel at nerds’ anguished realization that their heroes do not all share their insular mutated worldview
I saw the end first and got really upset because i thought Tim Schafer did something terrible, that was hilarious
the white house released this video on sexual assault that actually targets men, telling them not to rape, rather than telling women not to be raped. please watch this.
This is so fucking important, that I can’t even start to describe the happiness I get from finally seeing a major world government making a video that doesn’t tell women to not get raped, but instead tells men to not rape & to stop rape in the first place.
This right now, should be across Tumblr like a wildfire. It should be trending on Twitter and Facebook. This is good news. This is great news. This is, for once, a positive step towards educating people on a fucking huge scale about sexual assault.
This isn’t a solution. Rape culture isn’t gone. We can’t all just stand around and pat ourselves on the back saying, “We did it guys! We made the video! Job done.” - but for the first time in my memory, society is beginning to actively change its broken perspectives from the top level down. This is great. This is good news. This is a start.
This is fucking hope.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.”
The whole article sadly hits very close to home.
More people are concerned with why women stay in abusive relationships than why men are abusing women.
At ComicCon Orphan Black panel:
A young woman thanks the show for giving her the courage to come out of the closet and for writing Cosima as a character who was not defined by her sexuality.
She said that her parents were not okay with her being gay but watching «Orphan Black» with her mother helped them rebuild their relationship.
While Tatiana Maslany is fighting back her tears and is rendered speechless, Jordan Gavaris jumps in with this awesome response.
Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.
