disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

Penises and ejaculate and prostate glands occur in nature, but the notion that these anatomical traits comprise a sex—a discrete class, separate and distinct, metaphysically divisible from some other sex, the “other sex” —is simply that: a notion, an idea. The penises exist; the male sex does not. The male sex is socially constructed. It is a political entity that flourishes only through acts of force and sexual terrorism. Apart from the global inferiorization and subordination of those who are defined as “nonmale,” the idea of personal membership in the male sex class would have no recognizable meaning. It would make no sense. No one could be a member of it and no one would think they should be a member of it. There would be no male sex to belong to. That doesn’t mean there wouldn’t still be penises and ejaculate and prostate glands and such. It simply means that the center of our selfhood would not be required to reside inside an utterly fictitious category—a category that only seems real to the extent that those outside it are put down.

Jun Togawa’s robotic arm

"…Togawa’s lyrics repeatedly treat her own body as ‘insect-like’ (in songs such as Pupae Woman and Swarms of Insects), or as distorted into robotic, quasi-human forms. This ties into a simultaneous trend of Japanese popular culture to focus on the cybernetic augmentation of the body, a trend which (as far as I know) has not yet been written about. In Togawa’s case, I get the sense that these descriptions of the destruction and reconfiguration of her body relate to puberty, which she re-imagines as a hideous process of physical distortion. In one song, she describes love as a ‘mutation’ of her body - an acknowledgment of the inherent violence of the power relations of romantic love. In these powerful metaphors, she also highlights and subverts the objectification and territorialisation of the female body that the aidoru archetype is built upon. Whilst other aidoru produced glossy photo albums of themselves dressed as various feminine archetypes (schoolgirl, geisha, etc.), Togawa released a similar collection of photos with the English title JUN TOGAWA AS ONLY A LUMP OF MEAT. This imagery is continued in her videos and stage performances, where she often appeared wearing dragon-fly wings or ‘robotic’ attachments to her limbs…”

Stop telling parents that they’re suckers for not being child-free because they ~waste so much money and resources and if they didn’t have kids they’d be travelling the world and having fun~

Number one, would you tell an adult or even a teenager they’re a waste of resources and basically an undesirable leech? A child is a person and a child has feelings.

Number two that short of shit is repeated to children by abusers constantly all throughout life. Abusive parents will gripe on and on about how their kids hold them back and waste their lives. Stop it.

Girl: Come over

Me: Im an AP student, and I take many AP classes

Girl: My parents arent home

Me: AP stands for advanced placement. These are college level courses that you can take in high school. Typically they are more demanding than regular classes and thus you are often given a higher workload. However, the benefits are far reaching. Consider taking some AP courses during high school for a chance to earn college credit

discovergames:

Seriously, though. I’d love to see these “you have no right to complain about what developers put in games” guys if in the next installment Master Chief was gay, the Call of Duty protagonist was Muslim, or Samus Aran was openly and vocally feminist. Do you really think their little Reddit dungeons would be awash with internally consistent statements like “well, it’s art, guys - we really don’t have the right to complain”? No. They would lose their fucking shit. They would send death threats and rape threats to every single developer and media outlet they can think of. They would protest, doxx, demean and attack anyone with a dissenting opinion. They would burn this whole medium to the fucking ground before letting something like that go unchallenged.

And yet they see no irony in portraying people who want better representation as the ones who are whiny, entitled, emotional and perennially catered to.  

princeowl:

really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?

Announcing the Tomb Raider: Rise of the Buycott. 
As many people have learned today, Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics were paid by Microsoft to offer Rise of the Tomb Raider (Sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider Reboot) as an Exclusive to the Xbox One game console. 
Almost immediately people began to cry out in horror at the fact that something that had been a staple of Playstation and PC gaming for nearing twenty years was suddenly being stolen away from its most dedicated fans by the huge wallets of Microsoft. 
The outrage has been huge, with dozens of people voicing their anger on Twitter, tumblr, and the Crystal Dynamics/Tomb Raider forums, and other venues around the net. 
Because of the situation, it is impossible for Playstation and PC players and fans of this series to boycott something they can’t use. As a result, we as fans only have one real option for using our wallets in this situation. A Buycott. 
What is a the purpose of this Buycott, What is the goal? To prove to Square Enix where their real fans are. 
What can you do? 
We are staging a Wallet Protest where we flood Square Enix with our money on a competing product of their Own to Rise of the Tomb Raider. We prove to them directly where their fans are by buying their own products enmass. 
Currently Square-Enix has the Tomb Raider 2013 Reboot for sale on PS3, PS4, and PC, as well as Xbox360 and One. There is also the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming out this December  (The 9th) on various consoles, as well as various older editions of Tomb Raider games still for sale on Steam, GoG, and PSN (The older Playstation 1 titles are all on PSN). 
For now you can do the following:

Pre-Order Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on Steam. 


When Pre-orders become available for the Playstation 4 version, Pre-order that. 


Share this post with every Tomb Raider fan you know. Help spread this information. 


Sign a Petition.

Later on December 9th:

Purchase Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on either Steam or Playstation 4. 


Purchase Tomb Raider (2013) on Steam, PS3, and/or PS4. 

Let’s show them where the real fan’s are. 

I’m down.

Company does something we don’t like, LET THROW MONEY AT THEM

This is… not going to have the effect people think it will.
Also, the contract with Microsoft is signed. I strongly doubt there’s going back.

gamers are so freaking weird

lmfao, its a structured exclusivity deal, microsoft doesn’t own the lara croft IP and thus cannot prevent it from coming to other consoles after the deal lapses, the game is gonna come to other consoles probably 6 months to a year after the game launches on the xbox one, you fucking babies

and those versions are gonna be the ones to own anyway because they’ll be the DLC pack-in “game of the year” editions. come on you guys.
