So this happened

oh how the roles and opinions have changed when it comes to a young boy

DAILY MAIL READERS, LADIES AND GENTS

FYI, when it first happened with the girls, everyone was calling their parents unfit to raise children, and the girls were being called narcissistic and fame hungry cause they had their picture taken for news, while with the boy, everyone was so quick to jump to his and his family’s defense, calling it a smart haircut, and his hairstyle none of anyone’s business.

I just wonder. When did hair become more important than education?

"Most mass murderers do not go from zero to 60. Rodger made escalating assaults on women (splashing coffee on them, attempting to shove them off a ledge) before his killing spree. Both Cho and Justin-Jinich’s murderer harassed women before they killed anyone. When such acts go unnoticed and unpunished — because we expect men to harass women, and it’s not outrageous or even noteworthy when they do — they can become stepping-stones to more conspicuous and less socially acceptable acts of violence."

Raina Lipsitz

Interesting to note that while a history of animal cruelty is widely accepted to be a link with becoming a serial killer, the link between cruelty towards women and killing women is still up for debate. If a guy abuses a cat and then shoots women we say "we should have seen it coming that guy was nuts", but if abuses women and then shoots women we say "we had no way of seeing it coming that guy was a perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human

Not the stuff of sci-fi satire. This is a real finding from a real study: Female-named hurricanes kill more than male hurricanes because people don’t respect them.

”’[Our] model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll,’ the study says.”
Oh my fucking god

I like the part where people are calling for the naming process to be changed…
In my opinion sexist assholes ignoring GODDAMN HURRICANES because they have girl names should have to face the consequences.

As I suspected some anti-feminism and racist asshole took this picture about feminism and turned it into some racist bullshit.
That woman on these pictures only contributed to the “Why I need feminism” signs and now we have this picture of her with a racist sign.

Because she had the audacity to refuse an invitation to prom. Maren Sanchez is dead, murdered by a sixteen year old classmate who flew into a rage when Sanchez declined to be his date.

Maren Sanchez is dead, and multiple media outlets have the goddamn audacity to…

That’s it, WE CAN ALL GO HOME NOW. There won’t ever be a better graphic that summarizes sexist double standards in today’s geek culture.
THIS IS OUR CULTURE IN A NUTSHELL.

So, yeah, that first image is from a European Sony ad and I don’t know about you BUT IT CREEPS ME OUT. Ignoring the skeevy implications (woman’s body is a plaything for men, etc) it’s also just CREEPY AS HELL. Like “this is actually the new Silent Hill design” creepy.
So I decided to make it SUPER RIDICULOUS. If more boobs = OMG SEXIER OBVIOUSLY, then mine must be HELEN OF TROY LEVELS OF THE PERFECT WOMAN, RIGHT?! Line up, fellas!

oh my god marry me

Really, Sony? Really?

To say there is an uncomfortable air of fear in security is one (perhaps overblown) thing. To see the largest and only production of its kind, with hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line and an entire secondary production company locked in silent rapture under lit signage for Mountain Dew, the entire project gloriously rupturing like the belly of the Bismark – that is another. To be ushered by muted fear and nervous glances, to stand in desolate directors rooms filled with black screens and empty chairs. Darkened judging stands. Color-coded team challenge floors, soon to be dismantled, but left intact in the hopes that some shimmering archangel would descend and reinvigorate the 11 indie developers currently revolting against Maker Studios inside their rented Winnebagos.

To see the funeral procession of high creatives and story writers and production directors as they left the studio lot, heads down, on their way to a punishment tribunal we would only learn about in cracked voices and quaking half-jokes. The fake grass, crushed cigarette butts and empty beer cans; the trays upon trays of uneaten catering. And the understanding that it was a total wash – completely unsalvageable from a production standpoint – while the developers sat in tears, horror and shock on brand-integrated lawn chairs mere yards from a freelance crew already looking for their next gigs.

This is a very important article about an even that happened this past weekend at Maker Studios, one of the major production companies that manage groups such as the Game Grumps, Yogscast, and many other loved Youtubers. This is the story of how they fucked up, big. 

(Fun fact, the guy that wrote this article actually got fired for it VERY NEARLY GOT FIRED FOR IT, because the website it was published on is owned by Polaris.)

if you care about game development, the indie game scene, and/or the toxic environment of sexism in gaming at large, READ THIS ARTICLE AND THE THREE ARTICLES IT LINKS TO. It will be well worth your time.

This guy’s prose is a little overly meandering for my tastes and I almost didn’t make it to the actual story because each of the ten or so paragraphs it took to get to the “day Zero” meat of the story left me thinking “okay yeah that’s great but what happened that this article is hopefully eventually going to tell me about?” but it really is worth reading.
