if u can’t handle me at my hardcore feminist then u can’t have me at literally any other time bc that’s all i am 24/7
the video game dads managed to have an extended discussion of gamergate without ever mentioning the names of the women targeted, or the word “gamergate”, and like
im glad that they’ve finally come out to say “that’s fucked up and not ok” but im still mad about their prevailing “we have to move beyond this” attitude and refusal to actually understand or admit to the gendered aspect of it and its relation to both their own work and hiring practices.
You’d think that B.J. Britt, the actor who portrays Agent Trip, would have been a shoe-in to join the regular cast of the show in season two. (During a Q&A hosted by Comic Book Resources before the season two premiere, in fact, more than one person asked about the possibility of Britt joining the show as a regular cast member) But it wasn’t him. Instead, the new member of the regular cast was an English actor named Nick Blood who had been brought in to portray Lance Hunter.It’s not necessarily curious that the writers of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would bring in Hunter—he’s an established character in the 616 universe with ties to S.H.I.E.L.D.—but it is curious that they would bring him in as a regular, and obviously with every intention of sliding him into the hero role that was vacated by Ward, when they already have someone—an awesome someone, a someone who is adored by the fans—waiting to take that role.Think about it.Agent Trip is, as has been noted, loyal, dependable, and a badass. He’s witty, he’s warm, he’s an adorable tech geek, and he’s a freaking legacy. His grandfather was a Howling Commando, for Stan Lee’s sake. He should be the guy. But he’s not the guy. Lance Hunter is.There’s an elephant in the room, people: Antoine Triplett is an African-American character.Lance Hunter is a British mercenary with a heart of gold; he’s a man with a checkered past who just needs someone to believe in him. He’s a cis-white-dude, and he’s ready to be a hero. And, more importantly, the cis-white-dudes who traditionally run everything in the entertainment industry are ready for him to be the hero. They aren’t ready, in any way, shape, or form, for Antoine Triplett to be the hero.There’s so much wrong with this that it’s hard to believe it gets worse.But it does.
idk im just really uncomfortable with the new fem human noises
particularly the provocative moans whenever we get hurt or die
because sexualization of women’s pain is necessary ?
Are you for real?
there is literally no reason a girl should sound like shes cumming when she is dying
Honestly tho like every genre ever sounds like pain is a porno. Watch fighting anime with no visuals or a horror movie. For some reason that’s just the noise for people in general?? Or fighting games lmao
That is literally the point of this post. That is literally the point of this post That is literally the point of this post. Thanks for detailing exactly what is fucked up about media and videogames across the board. Thanks. Thanks. Thank you. Even if the point sailed straight over your god damn head and into the fucking void. thanks.
why are #gamergate ppl so obsessed with the feminist agenda in journalism or whatever when they could be focused on the real ethical problems present in video games, such as the fact that the worgen storyline hasn’t been advanced since the beginning of cataclysm and contains no canonical femslash
Setting boundaries/self preservation <3
PRO TIP: watching “how it’s made” is SUCH a good way to combat an anxiety attack! There’s soothing music, a soothing narrator who’s intonation never changes (narrators never yell or change their speaking pace), it’s engaging enough to keep you occupied but doesn’t force you to think too hard!
also sometimes the narrator makes bad puns
