(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)

And why hasn’t our President stepped in yet?

I’ve been getting really frustrated lately because I can’t seem to turn around without reading something someone has said about how girls don’t play “hard” or “real” games so shouldn’t be catered to (though it is of course nothing new).

I decided to look at the positive and say thank…

“there’s nothing wrong with the video game community”

I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE

They all need a good punch in the D, tbh.

47% of gamers are female.

47% of gamers are female.

47% of gamers are female.

47% of gamers are female.

  1. 47% of gamers are female
  • 47% of gamers are female

And did I mention 47% OF GAMERS ARE FEMALE.

IN FACT WOMEN OVER THE AGE OF 18 REPRESENT A SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER PORTION OF THE GAME-PLAYING POPULATION THAN BOYS 17 OR YOUNGER.

THESE STUDIES WERE PUBLISHED ONLINE FOR FREE TO THE PUBLIC - BY THE PEOPLE WHO OWN AND RUN E3 SO FUCK YOU AND YOUR MISOGYNISTIC BULLSHIT YOU ASSHOLES.

Flawless commentary warrants another reblog. :)

Well there’s ten individuals who’re never going to get a date ever…

Never.

Not.

I was retweeted by Femininst Frequency once, probably about four months ago. My life was a living hell for a solid week. Turns out there are tons of men that follow Anita just to harass her and the women whose voices she amplifies. I blocked hundreds of men. Twitter’s report process for harassment is stressful and bloated, asking you to go seek out links and spend more time staring at the abusive words, so I only went through it when I received death threats or requests for suicide. 

I still get the odd “women don’t belong in video games, go clean the kitchen, kill yourself” every few weeks, but the week after she tweeted, especially those first 48 hours, solidified my decision to step even farther away from the gaming industry.

This is not worth it.

I would love to say something supportive, but I really don’t know what.
I’m just angry, nerds turning into bullies, this is so sad.

A strong female character is one who is defined by her own characteristics, history and personality, and not solely by the actions or needs of other characters. She is someone in the story, not a prop. xx

For once, there’s some good news coming out of Ferguson

The Highway Patrol of St. Louis has taken over for the St. Louis PD. Their captain is from Ferguson, and has been marching with the protesters.

The photos and information coming out of Ferguson, MO this evening are shocking.

SWAT teams clearing out fast food restaurants, journalists arrested, full-scale police-as-military response to non-violent protest.

And yet perhaps the most amazing thing is that there seem not to be any elected officials willing to tell this police force to stand down.

Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.

But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point

Crying on the train.
All the white people are staring at me.
