anon is actually right, why should samus’s design include high heels? Pretty illogical choice for someone who is in combat. 

But no, let’s celebrate this so-called witty use of this gif above. 

this is bullshit

Sorry no.  Until there are men in speedos, or something equally sexist and ridiculous on the other side, “it’s a fucking video game” is the worst cop-out in history.  The same dudebros who hide behind “it’s a video game” would be the first ones complaining if there was something even vaguely homosexual or if the men were in something emasculating.   Samus in armor is fine.  Samus in the hyper-sexualized “zero” suit is sexism, plain and simple, I don’t give a damn how you rationalize it.

LOOKIT DANTE HERE. LIKE YOU COULDN’T GET MORE SEXUAL WITHOUT IT BEING RATED R!

BUT THOSE HIGH HEELS ARE WAY MORE SEXUAL THAN LITERAL NUDE MEN, AMIRITE?

This is so fucking stupid. Really, Pyramid Head? You’re using Pyramid Head as an example of how men are allegedly sexualized in video games? Guess what, women don’t want to fucking look at most of this, and it’s not for us, so don’t don’t act like shit is equal. I don’t even play video games, and I could probably come up with ten times more examples of images of women in video games that are explicitly meant to be attractive to male players. “A bunch of shirtless dudes doesn’t even begin to come close.”

> “I don’t play vidya games”

> “shirtless, fit guys are not attractive to women”

Stopped reading there.

lel at “I don’t even play video games”, if you don’t play video games your opinion is worth jack shit, literally nothing at all.

"Books are misogynists and I don’t even read books!"

Goddamn you people are stupid.

Just wanted to add

'You're using pyramid head as an example' ignore the rest, them.

I wanted to share my opinion, but ambienne over there already did it for me. Well, for all of us women who apparently aren’t meant to look at shirtless men.  

"Guess what, women don’t want to fucking look at most of this, and it’s not for us."

But if I had an opinion to share, I would say: you know why I don’t talk about anime, or anything regarding anime, ambienne? Because I don’t know shit about anime

If someone would tell me that anime is sexist or misogynistic, I still wouldn’t discuss anime, because I don’t know shit about anime

And you know what I would definitely never, ever, never do? Speak for an entire gender. I’m not a part of your feminist herd. Women don’t have a hive mind. Do not speak for all of us.

Yo, I won’t lie; when I was a teen I was eye fucking a ton of male game characters, especially those effeminate guys from basically any Final Fantasy game. 

I think what pisses me off the most about this trend of feminism in gaming is that I don’t think any of them actually care about the female base they try to speak on behalf of. In fact, I bet a ton of you were the same types who bullied women like myself for playing games because it wasn’t girly or because it was weird. In the 20+ years I’ve been a “gamer” I don’t recall any of you hopping on the couch with girls like myself or my buds and actually playing a decade’s worth of games. It’s because you didn’t. You were -never there to begin with-. SUDDENLY, you all pop out of the wood work when you see loud mouthed con-artists like Sarkeesian fanning flames to your “cause” so you can rage in the name of feminism; Context doesn’t matter as long as you get to scream and have a voice about things irrelevant to you. What kills me about it all is you -trample women- in the process. You throw us UNDER THE FUCKING BUS to prove your point and then justify it by saying ‘I did it for your own good” as if female gamers are uneducated swine that need your pretentious salvation.

In two decades, I have never felt unsafe or mistreated by the games I played nor the gamers I played with and I’ve played my fair share of MMOs and online FPS games. I’ve never had men in the gamer community tell me what I can and can’t enjoy or tell me I was too uneducated to draw enjoyment out of game. PERHAPS, I was treated equally because I didn’t flaunt usernames like “Imagirl23” or make it the defining aspect of my presence in gaming communities to garner special treatment; I was just a PLAYER, like everyone else.

When feminism began to touch games, THAT was when I felt unsafe, that was when I felt bullied and THAT is what is going on RIGHT THE FUCK NOW. For christ’s sake, I’m not allowed to announce I like “game x” because the high and mighty FemFreq poo pooed it, I have WOMEN telling me “I have internalized misogyny” and invalidate me as a woman because I don’t see things their way, and now I have developers in the industry of all genders afraid to produce games for fear of repercussion from screaming women who don’t play goddamned games to begin with.

I’m so tired of women trying to speak on behalf of me or other female gamers. Ya’ll need to shut it and find a new target for your “progressive” (ironically the opposite)  movement.

Most people say that it’s ridiculous to say that the Harry Potter books saved lives, but read this and you’ll change your perspective. Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, once wrote to J.K. Rowling begging for at least a tiny role in one of the films. At the time she was young and was dying due to her anorexia. She mentioned it to J.K. and begged to have one part in the film before it was too late. J.K. Rowling responded with a deal: she’d give her a part if she got better. Evanna got better and never returned to her anorexia.

Reblog every time because 1. It’s fucking awesome. 2. She’s fucking gorgeous. and 3. Books save lives.

NO NO NO NO NO NO WRONG. 
I always see this post and it always irritates the shit out of me. 
JK Rowling did not offer Evanna the part if she got better. And Evanna CERTAINLY didn’t beg for it.That’s not what happened at all. While Evanna was doing inpatient therapy for her disorder she wrote to JK Rowling expressing her admiration for the author. She continued to write back and forth with JK Rowling from the age of eleven onward. That much is true. And JK Rowling did encourage and help her to fight the disease.
But Evanna stood in line with all of the REST of those FIFTEEN THOUSAND hopeful girls and won the part based on her TALENT ALONE. JK Rowling wasn’t even aware that Evanna was the girl she’d been exchanging letters with until AFTER she was already cast! Here’s a quote from a Q&A with Evanna about this very subject

I wrote to her when I was 11, and I was sick at the time. I had an eating disorder. I wrote to her because Harry Potter was the only other thing I really cared about and that helped me take my mind off it, and I just wanted to thank her for that and say how much it helped me. Especially how much Luna helped me. It was basically just a big fat, “thank you, I love you” letter.
I kept expecting her not to write back, but she’s just such a caring person that she really wants to help with whatever wisdom she has. We wrote for years, and she helped me through recovery and everything. 
I was still writing to her when I got the part of Luna. But it happened in such a short space of time that I didn’t get to tell her. The producers told her because they just mentioned the names of people. She was really shocked. We still keep in touch.

So please for the love of god, stop reducing this fantastic actress and woman and human being to her disease. She didn’t get better so she could play Luna. She got better just to get better. To have a wonderful life. And she probably worked incredibly fucking hard to do so. It was because she got better that she got the opportunity to play Luna and played her so beautifully, that JK Rowling wrote the character to be more like Evanna. Not the other way around.
Evanna Lynch’s story holds an incredible message for those fighting their respective eating disorders: 1. You don’t have to starve yourself to be successful or even considered beautiful and 2. The only way to discover your potential, to fully live your life, is if you’re healthy and around to live it. 
JK Rowling is a wonderful woman and she supported Evanna with her words and her stories. She’s done much the same for many of us. But Evanna Lynch’s recovery is not about JK Rowling. 
Evanna is strong and capable and talented on her own. Everybody needs support now and again. But please, please, please DON’T praise JK Rowling for Evanna Lynch’s recovery. That’s not how it works. And the idea that you need someone else to come and fix you, to bribe you into recovering is dangerous and wrong. Recovery comes from within. It’s about changing the way you think about yourself and food. The only way to recover is to make those difficult choices inside your own head, your own body. Nothing can change that. 
This woman is proof that all of us, nerdy or bullied or odd like Luna, have the power to take control of our lives and conquer our demons. This woman is proof that hope is not silly. Finding solace in fiction is not frivolous. 
Evanna Lynch is the hero of this story. 
Not Harry Potter.
Not JK Rowling.
Evanna.

I think I might have broken my finger reblogging this. 

EVERYONE TAKE A MINUTE TO JUST APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT DONALD GLOVER EXISTS AND KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK IS UP

Oh but let’s just ignore the stories where crazy women 23

0HAVE killed their boyfriends. Yup.

Feminists: “We care about male victims of domestic violence!”

And what do they do? Send death threats to Erin Pizzey and murder her dog, and erase male victims of domestic violence whenever they can and insist that women are too weak and fragile to be threats, and even Jezebel gloats about how hilarious it was when they slapped and punched their boyfriends over trivialities, or even when one was worried he might have breast cancer (because men can’t get breast cancer oh wait yes they can but lol you go girl).  Look at this lovely white knight here, erasing male victims.   Instead of criticising it, feminists on this website are lapping this shit up like he bought them infinite refills at a bubble tea stand.

I’ve been stalked and harassed by a psychotic woman before.  I was 16 and she was twice my age.

Bitchez be cray

Oh trust me it gets crazier, the woman was my brother’s ex-wife and she was trying to track him down because she wanted his money.

Of course she did.
