*coughs* its actually meant to represent shyness/social anxiety
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons
I go to the University of Utah and I literally had no idea this was happening. Wow. Not surprised though. There’s a lot of hatred here, under the repressed white heteronormativity.
If I had the chance to race Godzilla on four-wheelers you wouldn’t be able to fucking stop me.
FIVE THIRTY EIGHT DIGS INTO DEMOGRAPHICS OF SUPERHEROES, FINDS THEY’RE STILL OVERWHELMINGLY MEN
Here’s the good news: According to some recent research by FiveThirtyEight.com, the website that applies data to just about everything — most notably, US elections — the ratio of female to male characters in mainstream superhero comics is improving, and more LGBT characters are showing up in Marvel and DC’s pages.
That said, the numbers still aren’t great. “Female characters make up only 30.9 percent of the DC universe and 30.6 percent of the Marvel universe,” the site’s report states. In a world where women are 51 percent of all people, that’s not so representative.
Also of interest: Female comic characters tend to be neutral or good far more than they’re evil. “Bad-aligned men alone outnumbered all women combined,” the report states.
isn’t 30% the cut-off line to when dudes think there’s too many women and they’re taking over?
Not in my neighborhood

Women be like: I’m doing single-arm rows right now, where the proper form requires me to bend over with a slightly arched back and look upwards to maintain that posture. With my body shape, it is physically impossible to do this without sticking out my chest somewhat. So just because I’m executing good form doesn’t mean that I want to be stared at.
Women be like: Designers specifically make these athletic clothes for women like me who workout in a gym that tends to reach high temperatures, especially when I’m so active, so my light clothing doesn’t necessarily mean that I want a dude’s attention. It just means that the room is too hot to wear layers, these clothes give me greater mobility, and I like the way that they look and feel on me.
Guys be like: I look at a lot of softcore gym porn and know that women typically don’t act like this in daily life, but I enjoy objectifying them anyway and like to justify my complete lack of respect towards them by placing the blame entirely on their shoulders. Blaming women for my attention allows me to never acknowledge how creepy and disrespectful my own actions may be.
Guys need to be like: A woman’s clothing is not consent.
how do you guys get the boards to stick to your feet when you jump?
