Kicking it in the pool@on a hot summer day!
I envy this kids future friends
"But why do men care so much about saving the girl? Isn’t it something far greater than just ‘because we get to go on an adventure?’ I think so. It’s because we love women. We adore women. We worship women. Even the gays love women for everything they offer to men! We recognize that there is no greater thing in this world than women! In the face of all of that video game violence towards women, I understand that’s a ham-fisted back-handed compliment but deep down I think it’s true. Men put women in games to be saved because there is literally nothing else worth risking our virtual lives over."
- MilfordBiggenson on “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games digs into the damsel in distress idea”
Every point this poster brings up turns women into objects, rather than people. Women aren’t prizes. They’re human beings.
"What annoys me most about people like her is they fail to see the other side of it. Men are depicted as muscle bound morons in a majority of games. Is that something I should be offended by? Should it bother me that the hero protagonist in most video games represents my gender as an uneducated, characterless meat-head that fails to solve issues in any other way but extreme violence? The answer is simply, no, it doesn’t bother me at all. And why? Because it’s fiction, it’s fantasy, it’s not supposed to be taken literally or allegorically like this idiot youtube blogger likes to think it is."
Money can't buy this.: Attack on Titan →
So I couldn’t find any pictures to reblog that weren’t probable spoilers, but there’s this Anime that my friend Josh got me to watch called Attack on Titan, and it’s actually fucking brilliant.
So basically, it’s about a world where giants came out of nowhere and ate almost all of the humans on…
I’m still here: back online after a year without the internet
Paul Miller returns after a year off the internet.
I was wrong.
One year ago I left the internet. I thought it was making me unproductive. I thought it lacked meaning. I thought it was “corrupting my soul.” It’s a been a year now since I “surfed the web” or “checked my email” or “liked” anything with a figurative rather than literal thumbs up. I’ve managed to stay disconnected, just like I planned. I’m internet free.
And now I’m supposed to tell you how it solved all my problems. I’m supposed to be enlightened. I’m supposed to be more “real,” now. More perfect.
let this flow into viola lion and thank me later for the best start to a friday ever
