I love both the art and the headcanon that allows such an event to happen.
Because every day I look at my fat, grumpy self in the mirror and say “grumpiness is the way of my people.”
Also, George and Tensaided are awesome, and I clearly need to make Susan heavier so she’ll fit in at the grumpy meetings.
Jerry seemed like a pretty not so grumpy fat guy.
Jerry confirms not so grumpiness.
One of the few things I truly hate in this world is the treatment of complex issues with simplicity. It disrespects valid points the other side makes, ignores the people involved, and demonstrates the ignorance of that issue.
It is for this reason I want little to nothing to do with Gamer Gate.
Neither side has clean hands. Neither side is willing to listen. Both sides have more than their fair share of misogynists.
If you treat Gamer Gate as something simple, it may well consume you. And the worst part is, you may never see the complexities.
A prominent feminist scheduled to speak at Utah State University on Wednesday has cancelled her presentation after an email threatening a campus shooting was sent to the school.
Anita Sarkeesian canceled her presentation NOT because someone threatened to shoot everyone in attendance, but because the campus REFUSES TO PREVENT CONCEALED CARRY OF GUNS DURING THE EVENT. She was still going to speak despite the threats until learning that ANYONE IN ATTENDANCE COULD HAVE A GUN ON THEM DESPITE THREATS OF THE SCHOOL BEING SHOT UP.
Someone threatened to murder a bunch of people because a woman they don’t like who talks about video games was going to say things, and the school can’t even ban weapons during the presentation????
AMERICA: We’re so fucking fucked up! SCHOOL SHOOTERS CAN’T EVEN TAKE OUR GUNS FROM US.
Uh, just so you know, supporting GG means supporting people who want to start massacres because they don’t want women’s voices heard. You really want to throw your hat in with that lot? Because you’re worried about “corruption in games journalism”, a.k.a. women liking and making video games?
"ETHICS!!! THIS ISN’T ABOUT GENDER. WE DON’T HATE WOMEN." Right, right, okay, whatever you say, sure.
Oh, and you know what a lot of people’s replies to this were? “Having a lot of armed people in the crowd just means they’re more likely to take down the attacker!” Oh goodie, that’s so comforting to know that if someone opens fire in a crowded room, a ton of other people are going to start shooting too! Yes, let’s bring that fucker to justice with a massive fire-fight in a crowded auditorium filled with college students and innocent bystanders, who of COURSE won’t accidentally get shot in the crossfire as every armed individual starts firing at the shooter. That’ll go GREAT.
Bitch is so angry she had to make a fucking gif for the anger. I’m a gay woman of color… how long do I have to keep fighting to be treated like a fucking equal without getting a fucking death threat for it?
Trying my best to stay out of this.
some doodles for maiqtells's highschool au lmoamfsdf/// idk how luci and robin act around each other in it so i just guessed ;;; hoohoo
update me on the south park thing was it as bad as I expected
Found this on the South Park tag.
The episode was actually pretty good and the ending was a positive message of “inclusion, not exclusion.” If it helps, I’m trans too.
SPOILERS, but please read the entire thing: Cartman is being a selfish brat who is saying he’s transgender to use the women’s bathroom. The makes the girls uncomfortable because Cartman very clearly is not trans and this action is just the sort of thing he would do. Knowing they can’t do anything without bringing a huge mess upon their heads, the school makes a new, separate bathroom for transgender people, something Cartman is very excited about (and a red flag). Wendy plays Cartman at his own game saying they’re trans (short bit, though it may be an actual thing) and using the bathroom. This really pisses off Cartman because he doesn’t think he should have to share the bathroom (Cartman’s second flag).
It is extremely important to note that much of tumblr is focusing on this part of the episode regardless of whether or not they had seen the episode. The B story tries it all together.
ANOTHER SPOILER BUT IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT’S WHAT THE EPISODE’S LESSON IS ABOUT: In the B story, we find out Randy Marsh is also the singer Lorde. This is part of Randy’s identity and they feel more comfortable using the women’s bathroom at work. Randy reveals the identity of Lorde to Stan (important for the rare C story). At work, Lorde is coming under fire for using the women’s bathroom as the cisgender women are getting uncomfortable. This leads to Lorde “going back in the closet” as Randy. After a pep talk from Sharon (which I’ll include later because it’s amazing), Lorde returns with a new song that inspires abolishment of separate bathrooms for transgender people that almost everyone accepts with open arms. Almost everyone because Cartman is furious that he’ll have to “share a bathroom with a bunch of girls” (Cartman’s fourth and final flag).
In the rare C story, discovering Randy is Lorde, and the whole thing with Cartman and Wendy leave Stan confused about who he is (“he” because he sort of figures it out by the end). Cartman rips on him for questioning because it somehow makes him the titular “Cissy”. This is Cartman’s third flag.
What makes the episode good is summed up in Sharon’s speech to Lorde:
"I’d tell her not to let people change who she is. I’d tell her that if people are making fun of her, it’s probably because they’ve lost touch with being human. I’d tell her to keep on doing what she does, because when someones not allowed to express who they are inside, then we all lose.”
I am of two minds.
I am happy to see a reboot (is that what this is, a reboot?) with an all-female cast. That is fantastic. Long overdue.
But I also really…
I don’t think it’s a reboot. I wouldn’t imagine they’d make it Ghostbusters 3 if it were. But hey, I’ve been wrong before.
I think what happens is something like Extreme Ghostbusters where the last generation trains the new generation.
I love how @fvckjojofromboston keeps talking about them white people while conveniently ignoring me.
Like mate, how about your fucking stop backpedaling about your white “amerikkka” instead of Europe and face me and research your own documentaries? How about you fucking don’t compare me to an animal that needs to be led by you and for once open your eyes that right here stands a disgusted middle eastern person with black heritage?
Like nah, mate. You ain’t shit.
I’m the one they quoted.
Got to love the backhanded non-apology to Asian people. Good to know that when a PoC fucks up, it’s still a white person’s fault. A non-white person can’t possibly be racist against another non-caucasian race they’re higher than on the totem pole, can they? Seriously, I could go into depth about the shit Asian people still get over here in the States.

Bonus points for also being related to Northern and Eastern Europe. Guess why we’re called Slavs.
