On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

The people who say that there’s no sexism in gaming; do they ever wonder why “trolls” consistently target people who point out sexism and take it to these extremes or is the whole thing just random chance to them every single time?
Wow. I watched this video a few months back, and I had no idea this had happened. I ultimately stopped being an active online gamer due to the harassment. Getting a message saying “hey whore” every time I logged onto PSN. Or being told a variety of sexually explicit things while playing online… it’s exhausting. Poor girl.
Free! episode 9 gave me more feels than the whole of the first bit of the season put together.
Partially because Haru hadn’t actually expressed his fucking apprehension/pressure he started placing on himself until the breakdown in the middle of the pool until this point.
Partially because everyone was super hyped about Sousuke jfc who imo honestly came across as nothing but a brooding macho wannabe (or some guy who looks like he belongs in Bleach). HOWEVER, I now think I am in love with him, which isn’t going to end well since he is just so very clearly in love with Rin but whatever.
ZOMG HARU BREAKING DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE POOL. Honestly didn’t believe wtf I was watching.
Sousuke o m g. Okay I admit it, he’s yummehhh. Coupled with Makoto’s shower back porn and Seijuurou getting a cheeky cameo, yummmm to this entire episode. Just yummmmmm.
On a totally irrelevant note, tonight I got stuck in a rather awkward situation on whatsapp and now I’m at a loss for what to do/say hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha fml.
I never noticed this.
Did i ever tell you, it was all in 1 episode.
id like think im an alternative badass girl who doesn’t give a fuck and doesnt live by societys rules, but in reality i do all my homework and never back talk teachers and i say “please” and “thank you” and “sorry” way too much.
this post is making me rethink my life why
Hermione Granger did all of those things and was still a total badass
i wonder what’s happening right now over at hogwarts
probably education since harry doesn’t go there anymore
Just imagine the Avengers going to Ikea, and Thor is the only one who can pronounce the name of anything.
This is disproportionately hilarious to me.
