This one is for you.
With your open heart,
your open hands.
You tried to close yourself off,
but you never learned to hate them.
There’s a lonely child inside of you
and you’ll always remember how it feels
to be empty.
But still you give, and keep giving.
This one is for you,
for every piece of you,
for the restless, the anger,
the broken, the holy.
The sleepless nights spent alone,
the way you hurt, the way your heart aches.
You grew up in a world
that told you to be tough,
to be hard, to be cruel
for the sake of being on top.
Instead you smile at strangers
and share everything you’ve got
with anyone who needs it.
This one is for you.
I see you.
I see you.
Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.

yep, no problems here!
In honor of back-to-school.
Awww, thank you! You’re one of my favorites as well :))
I’m not sending this to any followers because I worry about annoying people :) But anyone who wants to do it, I’d love to see!
It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
I cannot wait for men to cry about this
I give it an hour.
Now when will our games start to reflect this?
[Gifset: James Franco asks Nicki Minaj a series of questions: “Was it easy for you to break into the music business, or did you have to come in through the back door? Have you ever hit… bottom? When did you first realise you were sitting on a gold mine?” Nicki, looking hurt and angry, replies “..I know what the fuck you’re doing.”]
Yo Nicki is legit fed up with people talking about her ass, though. Look at her face yo. She is genuinely INSULTED and not having it.
Like this is a woman who just likes what she does and all anyone can ever focus on is her fucking ass and the fact she got ass shots or whatever. She’s not stupid. Give it a fucking rest.
A YouTube video of the full interview is here.
Later in this “interview,” Nicki is thoroughly fed up and says: “This is what you brought me here to do? I need— I need— where’s my publicist? I’m not gonna sit here and take this shit.” And, unless my judging of people is very, very off, everyone— including the two other gross white dudes who provide rude commentary throughout, including her ‘publicist’— everyone— except Nicki was in on this farce.
She is clearly hurt, disappointed, angry and distressed. She is obviously incredibly uncomfortable. This blatant display of misogynoir isn’t remotely funny.

The adventures of me wearing my graphic tees/dresses that have to do with video games or shows while working at Hot Topic. True story today.
Guys, stop doing this. It makes you 20000000 times less likely to pick up a girl. Stop “checking” us and let us love our things.
let someone do that to me
Surreal Underwater Photo Shoot with Freedivers on a Freedivers on a Shipwreck in Bali : Benjamin Von Wong
Earlier this year, artist and photographer (and fellow Canadian!) Benjamin Von Wong ventured to Bali for the photo shoot of a lifetime. The always ambitious photographer envisioned an underwater shoot with freedivers amongst a shipwreck 25 meters (82 ft) beneath the surface.
To pull off the project, Von Wong assembled a team that consisted of seven divers and two freediving models, Nora Li and Camilla Argent (Nora and Camilla can hold their breath for 3:36 and 4:40 respectively). Shooting underwater carries a unique set of challenges, as Von Wong outlines in his informative blog post.
