I'm the sort of romance novel heroine who beats my broody, controlling, boyishly beautiful suitor off my case, hijacks my own story in favor of solving crime, and ends my novel single and fabulous, wielding a magic sword everyone thought was meant for a man.
I'm all about marine conservation and science, and on my way to doing it professionally. I work in law enforcement, but not as a cop. Occasional artist, young-adult fantasy author-in-progress.
I'm stupidly in love with Rise of the Guardians (among other things) and help guardianofscrewingup write The Guardian of Screwing Up series.
Fandoms include: Rise of the Guardians, Lord of the Rings, Gargoyles, Sailor Moon, Gravity Falls, Xena: Warrior Princess, W.I.T.C.H., Samurai Jack, and a whole lot of books.

straight ppl calling bisexuals incessantly horny b/c we like multiple genders meanwhile straight ppl coin phrases like “guys and girls can’t be just friends”. like ok. call me what u want but at least i can form healthy adult relationships without turning everything into a crazed sexual escapade
"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
Steve Jaros from Volition said he thinks Saints Row has gotten better in representing women over the course of the series.
If they change anything in Saints Row, I’m gonna beat Sarkeesian to death with my controllers.
I can say this, and you can’t comment on this because I have a vagina. SARKEESIAN LOGIC.
Ewwwww noo WHY DO PEOPLE TAKE HER “ADVICE”
SAINTS ROW!? TTHIS FUCKING CUNT IS GOING TO RUIN SAINTS ROW!?!? IF THEY CHANGE ANYTHING HOLY SHIT THERE WILL BE A GODDAMN WAR!
Ugh, can someone please tell that meddling cunt to make her own game if she is so great at creating developed, groundbreaking characters?
“I think that we shouldn’t be portraying senseless abused women…” That’s what he said. If not portraying senseless abused women would ruin Saint’s Row for you, then you like the game for the wrong reasons. If you read the article, you’ll notice that the writer also said that they had ALREADY made those changes as they moved through the series.
So calm your fucking tits. At this point you’re just whining because of your hate boner for Anita and not because of any evidence at all.
PERFECT RESPONSE thank you so much
and like, if you’re legitimately upset by this criticism and Jaros’s response to it then PLEASE leave my fandom? because I don’t want you here and I don’t feel safe with you here. Seriously. Get the fuck out. :)
It is sad to see that misogyny is so deeply ingrained in people that the idea that a media franchise would slightly less sexist makes people violently angry.
The fact the creators saw something wrong with it and tried to improve it as the series went on before she even took a shot at criticizing it only makes the criticism more valid. When you have industry professionals admitting it’s a problem some of them have already started to work on long before Sarkeesian’s videos, there is, in fact, an actual problem.
And also, anyone that claims having a vag gives them the right to threaten to beat other women with impunity just because they disagree with them, you’re disgusting.
What is it about gamer culture that draws out the most disgusting people of all the genders/sexes? I’m only a casual gamer and therefore hang around more often in other fandoms that are a less overkill on the extremist attitudes and I don’t think people from gamer fandoms realize how toxic and batshit irrational they look to some of the other fandoms.
I don’t even watch Sarkeesian’s videos since her delivery comes off flat to me, but video games have a lot of sexism, water is wet, etc etc.
What is with the misogynists in the gaming community that even the female ones go “you dare accuse our community of misogyny? LET ME PROVE YOUR POINT! GENDERED SLUR GENDERED SLUR THREAT OF VIOLENCE RINSE REPEAT!”
It’s less like they’re trying to defend themselves and more like they’re jumping at an opportunity to display their sexist pride.
Before we go down what could be seen as an addition to my ghost post a while back on my own blog, let me introduce myself. I’m Jessica, Miss Jessica in case any of you know me from the BDSM community, and like most writers I’ve been writing since ever. Numerous short stories and novel and…
