Does anybody remember this awesome show?
totally catching up on this
I’M SORRY BUT THIS REALLY PISSED ME OFF AND I NEEDED TO VENT.
So I liked this page last year for the shits and gigs, as you do. I found it funny, and let slide the few sexist posts.
Only recently- and after I got a tumblr- did I really start to notice the abundance of rape, sexist and racist jokes appearing on my news feed. And it pissed me off.
I said nothing, however, because what could I do? Send in a message to the page and get labelled a whore and a slut by the Admins as I’ve seen so many people do?
Then this motherfucking gem popped up.
I usually don’t get involved in these sorts of things; if I do my comment gets lost more often than not and goes unnoticed. But I had to comment, I really had to.
I thought my argument was valid and whole, and I was actually rather happy when he admin directly replied to my comment.
I narrowed down my five favourite games ever and posted them.
Of course, I got beaten and labeled down once again.
When I asked for a rational clarification of his definitions of “casual” and “core” he did not reply. It was only when I directly insinuated the bias of his claim did I get a response.
“A feminist I see. No arguments need to be made. Good luck with getting them eggs fertilized”
Note the use of “feminist” as an insult.
I have had my fair share of gender specific hate regarding gaming. I get told I am a fake and a bitch if I get a high score; I get told to “suck a dick because you are better at that, bitch” if I get a low score; I get told to “get back in the kitchen, slut” without any prompt at all, simply because I have a vagina.
I am beyond sick of this. I hate the fact that if a male who hypothetically plays a few hours of CoD can be easily called a gamer by the wider community but I if were to say that I was a level 34 on Skyrim I would immediately be called a fake geek girl, a casual gamer and a liar.
I hate the fact that, even though 45% of gaming consumers are female, developers and publishers still believe that there is not a large enough demographic for female protagonists.
I hate the fact that most women in video games are no more than sexulised objects in skimpy clothing.
I hate the fact that I cannot enjoy a game without being labeled and branded because of the fact that I posses a vagina and not a penis.
~sorry about the long post clogging up your dash. I needed to vent~
Off-topic somewhat, but important.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I AM SO MAD
At what point did World of Warcraft become casual? I can’t wait to inform my friend the WoW player that he’s only a casual gamer.
I’m really hoping the fucker in OP’s message is a virgin and will never breed… from his ridiculous shit I would assume so though.
What’s unfortunate is that I play and know about more videogames and videogame history than a vast majority of my coworkers, and I work at a videogame developer. Working in games, knowing about them, and playing them are a huge part of my life. And yet stupid neckbearded nitwits like this guy will somehow still think I would be a “casual” just because I’m a girl.
Also, this guy apparently has no clue what the fuck the word “casual” means.what total douche to OP “Badass Ed”, a gamer can be anyone dumbass.
Casual? Skyrim, WoW? Those aren’t even casual games! Each game is something you play on your days off because you can’t play them after work or before work they require a huge amount of time be invested into them. Facebook games are the casual games, nothing wrong with that at all. But if a ham requires you to sit and play more than 5+hours without a time based wait then its not casual. Fuck him you go and you play your games, and if you ever meet him in a CoD game snipe him and tea bag his corpse with a chainsaw
Okay, wow. No.
I DESPISE that kind of attitude with a burning passion. I’m sorry, but what makes HIM feel so justified in deeming whomever he pleases as being “worthy” of the title/label of being a “gamer?”
It’s an elitist, bullshit attitude and I can’t tolerate it.
He has no say in who is a “true gamer” or not. Nobody does. You can’t just tell people who or what they are.
Clearly, he just needs to feel superior in SOME WAY, so he chose that to fill his ego. Lol. But, regardless, that’s so ridiculous. I hate people who do this kind of crap.
If you play a video game or multiple video games, YOU’RE A FUCKING GAMER.
It doesn’t matter WHAT games you play, how long you play them, etc.
IF YOU PLAY VIDEO GAMES, YOU ARE A GAMER.
The specifics don’t matter.
What I feel like doing to this guy
The focus on eyes emphasises the overall desperation for secrets and trust that characterises both the FBI and the criminals. On close ups, having Jodie Foster look slightly off camera and all the other actors straight on, subtly highlights the fact that most of the film is from Clarice’s point of view and that others struggle to know her intimately. When she finally confides in Lecter and tells him about her childhood and the lambs, she looks straight into the camera for one of the first times [x]
