Quote reblogged from (and yet: what if knowledge were delicious?) with 20,704 notes

What about our fans? Are they privileged? Let me tell you about Anders. He was one of two male love interests in Dragon Age II, and the only one of the two that would actually make his intentions known to the player without the player expressing interest first. If you were nice to him, he would make a pass at you, and you could turn him down, and that would be the end of it. And some fans REALLY did not like that.

Some of them asked for a gay toggle; because in a game where there’s mature themes, slavery, death, and none of which we offer toggles for, encountering a gay character? OOH, beyond the pale. They didn’t want to be exposed to homosexuality.

And this one fan on our forums posted that he felt too much attention had been spent on women and gays and not enough on straight male gamers. For all of whom he personally spoke, of course. ‘It’s ridiculous that I even have to use a term like Straight Male Gamers, when in the past I would only have to say fans.’ The purpose of the romances in Dragon Age II was to give each type of fan an equal content. Two romances whether you’re male or female, straight or gay.

How upsetting for this particular Straight Male Gamer to realize he wasn’t being catered to. This was not equality to him, but an imbalance; an imbalance of the natural order. He did not want equality, he’s not interested in equality. To him, from his perspective, equality means he’s getting less. Less options? Actually, no, the number of options we had in that game was actually the same number of options that he would have received earlier. What was his issue was the idea that there was attention being spent on other groups, which SHOULD have rightly gone to him.

Do ALL straight male gamers feel exactly the same as he does? Absolutely not. In the thread where this came up in fact, there was quite a few guys who came in and identified themselves as straight male gamers and said ‘I actually don’t have an issue with that, as long as I receive an experience I enjoy, I think other people should be able to enjoy that too.’ But if you think that Straight Male Gamer Dude is an outlier among our fanbase, you were not paying attention.

This is Anita Sarkeesian, she’s the author of the Feminist Frequency, a blog which examines tropes in the depiction of women in popular culture. You’ve probably all heard about this, it’s a matter of public record, she announced a Kickstarter to start a web series to look at the tropes in video games and she was subjected to a campaign of vicious abuse and harassment by male gamers. Why? Well, because she represents to these guys the loss of their coveted place in the gaming audience. Never mind that well all know Goddamn well that they’re still at the top of the totem pole. What they see themselves losing is sole proprietorship over their domain. That’s what it is.

Everything that is changing about the gaming industry to accommodate these players, to them, is diluting the purity of gaming which has belonged solely to them. That’s what this is all about. And here’s the thing, I’m pretty certain that our industry fears the scrutiny of those guys way more than the scrutiny of everyone else. Because those are the guys that scream at the top of their lungs, they spend their time on every internet forum, they spend their time making Metacritic reviews. Infuriate them, and you become a target. It’s so much easier to say “Well, that’s what our fans are like. There’s nothing we can do.” And that’s bullshit.

They didn’t set the tone, did they? We set the tone. What we put out there, what we permit, whether it’s on our forums, whether it’s on Xbox Live, the things that we permit we are in effect condoning. What happened to Anita, we the industry, are partly responsible for. We’re in part to blame. And if the idea of moral responsibility doesn’t phase you, consider the idea that the time will probably soon come that this will also amount to legal responsibility.

honestly, this is so important though. at 18, i had been depressed for so long that i was afraid of what would happen if it were to get treatment. “if this part of me goes away, who am i? will i still be the same me?” i was legitimately afraid of getting help for myself. your depression may shape you, but it doesn’t define you.

THIS IS SO FUCKING VALIDATING I CAN’T EVEN.

GETTING HELP DOES NOT MEAN LOSING CREATIVITY.

Let me repeat that, in case you weren’t clear: getting help - therapy, medication, self-care - does NOT mean losing creativity. I know too many fabulous creative people who lose themselves and their art to this nonsense.

Yes. If a treatment makes you feel like you are losing yourself and the spark that makes you, well, YOU, then it is not the right treatment. there are options.

"Creepshot" Photos Are Now Legal in Texas

A Texas state law prohibiting people from taking photographs “with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person” if the person being photographed does not consent is unconstitutional, according to the state’s highest criminal court. Under this decision, so-called “creepshot” photos, where men often take photos of unconsenting women that they encounter on the street, are legal in Texas.

sooo this is disgusting

dont ignore this
this is important and a huge step backwards

How the FUCK is that unconstitutional? 0.o

Quote reblogged from The Sundry Times with 94 notes

The 52-year-old Parisian, whose signature style can best be described as biker chic, sports flowing brown locks and favors V-neck shirts that reveal about an acre of chest hair. (Company photos indicate, and a Google image search seems to affirm, that the man has never fully buttoned up a shirt or even owns one with such a capability.)

omg, Petopher B-Day surprises. Chris insisting Peter gets a costume for the pack Halloween party and Peter doesn’t want to. But Chris thinks he looks too hot in the costume that they don’t make it out of the fitting room.

Yes. And now I have the mental image of Chris hustling Peter back into the dressing room, because, damn, he looked good dressed as Han Solo.

No, no, no.. Chris HAS to be Han.  I’m sorry, that’s just the way it is.  Peter would be Lando, that fucking cape and a v-neck, c’mon.

What not the gold bikini?

Oh fuck, Ara, now I’m imagining those golden cups, perfectly covering those magnificent boobs he’s got going on. (I think cyberratting might like that bit), and the bottom, the waistband dips low enough to show off the dark hair of his treasure trail, the sharp relief of his hipbones, and of course, he’s not wearing anything underneath those flimsy burgundy panels of silk or whatever, and it’s so easy for Chris to flick them aside and puts his hands all over Peter.

But instead of the fitting room, I bet Chris is going to hold back, make Peter wait all night, but he’s constantly touching, keeping him wound up.

Don’t forget the boots. Or the armbands. Or the collar.

screaming-towards-apotheosis:

I will never get enough of Derek getting possessivebadtouch about Peter and Peter enduring because guiltpackgamilycomplexfeelingsangst. Especially when Chris is there to help him.

This. Yes.

I have in my head this scene where Chris finally gets Peter alone, and he asks him why he’s doing this. Because Derek has made it clear to the pack that Peter’s his, that this is how it is.

And the betas get used to it. Get used to the way Derek’s scent intermingles with Peter’s, to the way Derek reaches out and cups his hand around the back of Peter’s neck, drawing him closer.

But Chris sees it. Sees the split second of hesitation before Peter turns into Derek’s touch. Sees the way Peter’s smile doesn’t reach his eyes, not like it used to when they were younger. Back when Peter’s smile would light up his entire face.

And Chris grabs Peter’s arm when Peter tries to turn away. “You don’t want this, Peter. It obvious to anyone who knows you. So why the fuck are doing this?”

"Because I killed Laura!"

Chris lets Peter go in shock. The wolf’s never spoken about his niece before, never shown any reaction before to when his actions were mentioned.

"I killed one of Talia’s children." Peter’s voice is soft in a way Chris has never heard before. "I owe it to Talia, to my alpha, to make sure that her remaining child wants for nothing."

"Even if it destroys you in the process?"

Peter doesn’t answer as he walks away.
