“Why should we care about women’s representation in video games?”
“Nobody is going to want a female protagonist!
“Their target audience isn’t big enough to warrant any games!”
“Women aren’t as capable as men, they don’t belong in video games!”
“If more women started playing video games, maybe then they’d have a say in the matter!”

"What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women. So we just wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around."
Robin Thicke’s new song, “Blurred Lines,” is the number one song in the country right now. It is also very sickening because of its implication of rape and sexual harassment and its not-so-subtle promotion of rape culture (that he then seems to attribute to human nature—great). See more of what disturbing things Thicke had to say and read about some of the backlash on the Huffington Post. (via you-do-not-do)
somebody get this motherfucker forreal
yeah read this article tonight, what a fucking creep
Yes, because degrading women and objectifying their bodies is so original and not the norm. Especially not in the entertainment industry.
can one day sam and dean be quietly doing research and dean makes them sandwiches and they’re eating and reading and chatting and it’s really amiable anD THEN SAM PUNCHES DEAN IN THE FACE AND SHOUTS ‘REMEMBER THAT ONE TIME YOU PUNCHED ME AND GAVE ME A FREE HIT AND I NEVER COLLECTED MOTHERFUCKER’
OH MY GOD
"It seems to me that on one page I recognized a portion of an old diary of mine which mysteriously disappeared shortly after my marriage, and, also, scraps of letters which, though considerably edited, sound to me vaguely familiar. In fact, Mr. Fitzgerald (I believe that is how he spells his name) seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home."
—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.
knife his corpse
that sounds about right
He was a shitty author, tho…
I did not know this.
So we get to add yet another unsung woman to the long list if thise who changed the world without credit.
I really don’t want that list to grow anymore.

A message from every girl who enjoys sex and showing off her body.
I just really want to start a gym for geeks where you’d have to like run away from Daleks or GET TO ENGINEERING through some ducts or like compete in a Tri-Wizard Tournament or train with lightsabers and it would just be hilarious nerdy wonderful fun.
