Quote
"This dominant narrative surrounding the inevitability of female objectification and victimhood is so powerful that it not only defines our concepts of reality but it even sets the parameters for how we think about entirely fictional worlds, even those taking place in the realms of fantasy and science fiction. It’s so normalized that when these elements are critiqued, the knee-jerk response I hear most often is that if these stories did not include the exploitation of women, then the game worlds would feel too “unrealistic” or “not historically accurate”. What does it say about our culture when games routinely bend or break the laws of physics and no one bats an eye? When dragons, ogres and magic are inserted into historically influenced settings without objection. We are perfectly willing to suspend our disbelief when it comes to multiple lives, superpowers, health regeneration and the ability to carry dozens of weapons and items in a massive invisible backpack. But somehow the idea of a world without sexual violence and exploitation is deemed too strange and too bizarre to be believable."

Iced tea, spontaneous henna, warm late afternoon, my dog, and not so spontaneous trip to the doctor to admit that it’s not a weakness but it’s something I do need help with #depression

Facebook is beginning to fill up with updates from all my friends leaving for Burning Man and I’m sitting here in a waiting room thinking “Well fuck you I had to sell my ticket, I’m happy there’s no copay and my car might not need $500 in repair which means I can pay my student loans, get gas, buy food, and get a fucking dresser.”

I wish I was going.
