People are quick to blame video games on why gamers are giant assholes, but I don’t think thats the case at all
I think the “gamer community” created a perfect environment for nerds to become the bullies they always wanted to be

One person, Duncan himself, has died from Ebola in the United States in these three weeks. In contrast, during an average three-week period in the United States: 35 people die from tuberculosis; 3,200 from influenza and pneumonia – 500 of those people under 65 years of age; 1,100 from suicide by gun; 650 from homicide by gun; 1,000 by alcoholic cirrhosis; and 1,900 by motor vehicle accident.* These deaths are not only vastly more numerous, they are much more contagious, either in a medical sense or in a sociological sense. Where are screaming headlines for those risks?

Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing

This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better. 

I always found this fascinating. I find it the biggest problem with toys though, as I hate that kids would miss out exploring a certain type of play if marketing brainwashes them it is only for the other gender.  Namely boys playing with house play things / dolls, or girls playing with tools / action figures / cars.

i love the way this opened up i love that they did that thank you thank you thank you

This was fantastic

I do not own these pics. They were sent to me in an email. But I thought I’d share with you all because they’re just AMAZING.

DRAGONS

I feel so stupid I didn’t know they could fly, I thought they were like CHICKENS, I never questioned it because these pictures never circulate, I am WAY OVER MY HEAD.

It’s tempting to believe that this online row – a toxic combination of misinformation, anger and anxious masculinity – is just about one specific technology industry’s subculture, or that it will blow over. But by labeling Gamergate a “gaming problem” and attaching a hashtag to it, we’re putting unnecessary boundaries around a broader but nebulous issue: threats and harassment are increasingly how straight white men deal with a world that no longer revolves exclusively around them.

Who is this man? Mackling at my more,

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a rapping,
As of some one gently Mackling, Mackling at my chamber more

get out

QUOTH THE RAPPER,”MACKLEMORE”

honestly at this point I would accept anything spicyshimmy says as canon

It is dangerous to give one person that much power, especially one with such conflicting fandoms. What if spicyshimmy starts shipping Dorian and Spock? If she decides that Tribbles are somehow responsible for the tear in the Veil? If she claims the next installment should be Dragon Age: The Naked Time. 

Except the last one would be awesome.

And now I’m shipping Zevran and swashbuckling Sulu.

OMG.

That would be perfect. 

And now I submit a quick and messy sketch to illustrate the perfection of this ship…

…this makes entirely too much sense.

I need a space anomaly and a transporter malfunction, STAT!

Thank goodness I’m not the only one. I don’t think my daughter got it but I’m not sure she’s seen Then Naked Time, let alone much of classic Sulu. 

all i can say aside from awesome is that if something’s called “the naked time” then zevran arainai is on his way

That would be so great, a tiny house with a great view outside and a little oven and comfy chairs and shelves for little inspirational things and drawers for notebooks and a wall to hang a timeline and and and….
