“there’s nothing wrong with the video game community”
these are the types of guys I not so secretly hope they get thrown under a bus.
Oh I’m sorry I totally thought this controller was a remote to the dish washer! Oops!
And I forgot that NO ONE plays Resident Evil.
Lewis’ Law at work, everyone.
Tumbling over the past year and a half has made me see the problems of gender roles that exist in media, but sometimes it gets to the point where I over analyze every single piece of television or film that I come across. (However this in no way means that I think feminist media criticism is wrong, or should be avoided!) Mostly I just over think everything.
This is awesome!
if u think my constant vocal feminism is annoying imagine how annoying the patriarchy is to me
what it basically boils down to is this:
maaaybe i’m a feminist killjoy and freedom-of-speech oppressor who “can’t take a joke”
or maybe, just maybe
you’re a racist misogynist with a shitty sense of humor who “can’t take criticism”.
IT ANNOYS ME TO NO END THAT PEOPLE GET ALL UP IN ARMS WHEN SOMEONE TALKS ABOUT FEMINISM AND THEY GET THAT LOOK IN THEIR EYE LIKE “OH GOD HERE WE GO AGAIN” YEAH HERE WE FUCKING GO AGAIN I’M GOING TO BEAT YOU WITH A BOX OF TAMPONS AND SOME BRAS IF YOU KEEP PATRONIZING A MOVEMENT THAT EXISTS BECAUSE YOU ROLL YOUR EYES WHEN I TALK ABOUT EQUALITY
I’m not going to reblog it because it’s pretty graphic and potentially triggering, but you can see it here. And some of the comments are to the tune of, “Well if the genders were reversed, people would be freaking out that it’s sexual assault.”
Make no mistake, it IS sexual assault. Making unwanted and/or violent sexual advances towards another person IS sexual assault. It does not matter what the gender of the perp or the victim is - anyone can be sexually assaulted and anyone can sexually assault. I just wanted to give everyone a serious reminder that no one deserves to be sexually assaulted, and people who are deserve to feel comfortable seeking justice regardless of their gender and the gender of their assailant.
you keep saying “we’re all human” but all i hear is “i want to completely ignore institutionalised oppression and shut my eyes and pretend everyone is treated equally to escape the guilt of the numerous privileges i’m afforded”
**please do not remove artist’s comments or repost this comic!!!**
okay so i finally finished this comic for my design class! i might eventually print it in small booklets or make multiple episodes/issues if enough interest is expressed. if you reblog this and you would be interested in purchasing/reading issues of this or comics like this, please say so so that i can gauge whether or not this is something i should pursue! <3
the final image is what the back cover will look like if i print it!
EDIT: the phrase “sorry my friendship is a crappy consolation prize” is adapted from a post by tumblr user pampampam! sorry, i meant to credit it and i was so relieved to have finished that i forgot to add this when i first posted.
always always always. i can’t go back to blissful ignorance.
