Over the past few weeks, there have been repeated calls to “take gaming back” from the “white knights”, the SJWs, the liberal “crusaders”. But calling for better gender representation in games and game development isn’t about taking anything away. As an artform, as an industry, as a sport and as countless other things, gaming is growing at the speed of light. Yes, the traditional, “triple-A” boxed game business appears to be in decline, but that’s a poor yardstick for a medium that now encompasses hundreds, thousands of different devices, access points, genres and tastes. Such growth invites, demands and can only benefit from a more diverse and inclusive spread of creators and concepts. This is a question of evolution. It’s about taking what we have into tomorrow. Nobody needs to be excluded. And there is no need to panic.
I wonder if the decline of AAA titles has something to do with the vast majority of them being derivative of each other, and gamers are getting tired of the same old thing with marginally different graphics? I wonder if people are growing up and getting tired of dealing with assholes when they try to play these AAA titles online?
Women playing games isn’t the problem. The way some men treat women who play games is.
Wil hit the nail on the head as to why I don’t give a crap about most AAA titles coming out, and why I don’t play any games online outside of World of Warcraft.
look at this
I’ll bet it was funny up until those things caught on fire, because the exhaust coming out of the car is damned hot. Also blocking exhaust from coming out of your car is not a good idea. Please refer to the banana scene from Beverly Hills Cop.
As silly as this is, please do not stick things in the tailpipe of your car.
Hey kids, it’s time for Rewriting History with Judge Andrew Napolitano.
No joke, in the Texas public school system elementary students are taught that tariffs were the reason for the civil war, not slavery. We had an entire curriculum built around it.
Don’t forget that as one of the largest textbook markets, many other states have to buy Texas-approved textbooks. Not only does Texas screw up their own children, but they screw up the kids of other states as well.
Uh…… you mean like this?
wow. let it be known that tumblr legitimately changed my opinion on something today.
I’m sorry but is there an advert about toilet paper in there. They are legitimately trying to sex up toilet paper.
hang on, wait a second
This has to be a satirical article. There’s no way this would be written in seriousness.
How many baby boomers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
None. They make a millennial do it for nothing and tell them that they’re lucky for the opportunity.
"By far, one of the best scenes in the book is where Kaling writes about the photo shoot she and Office co-star Ellie Kemper did for People’s Most Beautiful issue. When the stylist brought a trailer full of size zero gowns, Kaling found herself crying in the children’s bathroom of the public school where the photo shoot was happening. In the bathroom stall, she discovered a smear of what looked like excrement and a child’s graffiti: “This school is bulls–t!” which made her a) laugh and b) demand that the stylist alter one of the gowns to fit her. In the end photo, she’s smiling in a gorgeous fuchsia dress that the stylist had to rip down the back and alter with canvas. Looking at beautiful Kaling, though, you’d never know. It’s a sweet moment of chubby girl victory.” (via afterellen)
This is the story that truly made her my hero.
Here’s the thing: why the FUCK would a stylist- who, on a shoot like this, would obviously be considered a “professional”- ONLY bring tiny-sized gowns?
Does this happen all the time? Seriously? Like… do they just not MAKE gowns that-
Time and time again, we know, we’re told, upscale designers actually ADMIT and are PROUD of the fact that they don’t make gowns for “plus-sized” women.
Mindy Kaling had to have the gown she wanted ripped down the back with canvas tacked onto it AT HER OWN FUCKING PHOTO SHOOT.
Melissa fucking McCarthy couldn’t find a SINGLE designer to fit her for a gown at her own fucking Oscars ceremony.
Hell, I can’t even decently priced off-the-rack REGULAR FUCKING CLOTHES that don’t look something my grandma would wear on a Norwegian cruiseliner.
Because apparently “fat” people don’t deserve to take pride in how they look.
And I actually AM fat. Mindy Kaling ISN’T EVEN.
