I don’t remember a single entertaining show on Jetix except for W.I.T.C.H., and that was fairly slow.
My mind has literally always thought if a thing doesn’t star mostly my gender, or about 50% my gender, it is a boring thing and I’m not going to watch it.
And that makes me a minority, even though guys are encouraged to think that about guys in media.
Most of my kids and my niece feel the same I do on this, though, probably because I encouraged it.
I find that a deeply frustrating and uncomfortable perspective to encourage.
Anonymous asked: What's this about Anita Sarkesian being a con artist? Is this just more bullshit misogyny or something legit?
No idea. My guess is that she’s a “con artist” because she’s releasing videos way slower than you ideally would after receiving six figures in funding but that’s par for the course when it comes to Kickstarter. I mean she sucks but if people were really concerned about crowdfunding honesty and not just Femenest Takeing Our Game’s there are dozens of Kickstarters that got more money and took way longer to produce anything than her
It’s not just the slow updates— she’s used a ton of stolen game footage instead of recording her own, which was supposedly what some of the money and time was supposed to go towards (iirc she was supposed to play all the games she brought up).
There was also an incident of stolen fanart YMMV on if it was a simple mistake or carelessness, im not particularly salty about that in particular.
There’s also a lot of less reasonable claims against her but stolen footage is where she definitely went wrong & broke promises.
I’m looking for the megapost with all the info but she’s also stolen people’s artwork
when i find the post i’ll edit this one w/ the link
bump, found the post about the stolen art
It would be nice if you reblogged that with the artist’s update to the situation. It’s still sketchy, but the artist herself points out that you shouldn’t sweat it too hard.
Also, citation needed re: stolen footage.
This Is The War On Drugs (via “The House I Live In”)
A call to national conscience, the activist documentary via NY Times)is persuasively urgent. Directed with heart by Eugene Jarecki, the movie is an insistently personal and political look at the war on drugs and its thousands of casualties, including those serving hard time for minor offenses. It is, Mr. Jarecki asserts — as he sifts through the data, weighs the evidence and checks in with those on both sides of the law — a war that has led to mass incarcerations characterized by profound racial disparities and that has created another front in the civil rights movement.

Here’s the thing, going into this film I KNEW our criminal justice system was messed up, but I didn’t expect to see politicians, judges and corrections officers chiming in and demanding that the system change. THAT was incredibly eye opening for me and all the more reason that more people need to see this film. If you haven’t seen it already, “The House I Live In” is currently available for rent and instant streaming on Netflix. And if you don’t have Netflix, you’re in luck because April is officially the last month I’m able to offer my followers a free month subscription through netflix.com/chescaleigh
Like the Mets, the Athletics are the less popular team in a two-team region — less popular everywhere in that region, based on the data from Facebook. Again, winning the World Series matters. The Giants have won two of the last four. The A’s have won none of the last 24.
Anonymous asked: Do you still maintain your position on Anita Sarkesian now that it's been revealed that she's a liar, con artist, and thief?
This question confuses me on an existential level.
whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
Gee, it’s almost like many countries deal with major disasters and political problems intra-nationally when infrastructure breaks down.

Anyone who think Loki is a good choice to marry has a bad opinion.
(There might be a book with an unreliable narrator where the villain isn’t a bad person, but most villains in popular novels are not good people even when they’re sympathetic.)
