"There’s a push to make people ashamed of being offended by anything, as if it reflects on how delicate you are, as opposed to just having a sense of right and wrong. That’s the only way you wouldn’t be offended by things — if you had no sense of right and wrong."

Stupid Shit: Documents people being stupid, and possible subsequent smack down of those stupid people. May be cross tagged with srs stuff or funny stuff lol.

blegh had a really hard time calling out someone at work on transphobia v.v. that feeling when trying to explain why something is really offensive to someone who only has a super basic level of understanding of the issue at hand

I wish you would all shut the fuck up about Lucy I mean damn I saw the movie last night and I saw no traces or any racism in it.

According to most it focuses on a white woman in a foreign country which is racist to some of you but little do any of you actually know most of the movie takes place in France.  Tokyo is just the starting point.

Apparently Lucy kills a Japanese man for not speaking English in his own country.   She does not kill him.  She simply shoots him in the leg because he cannot be of service to her.  Many don’t account for her mental status as well.  After the drugs were injected into her she lost feeling.  She could not think straight as all logic was blocked.

Lucy was very logical in everything she did and I saw no racism or anything to piss any of you off.  She never killed anyone she didn’t have to.  She only ended people deemed as a direct threat to her.

It’s a damn movie and you’re all overreacting per usual.  Just shut up and enjoy it.

In their zeal for defending the racism in this movie, this person seems to have confused Taiwan for Japan.

They made a mistake, people confuse where settings are all the damn time. 

 SERIOUSLY CHILL;  YOU THINK I FREAK OUT WHEN PEOPLE CONFUSE NORWAY AND SWEDEN?;  NO;  I CORRECT THEM CALMLY BECAUSE I KNOW NOT EVERYONE KNOWS THE SAME THINGS I DO;  DAMN;  CALM DOWN;  

…This is actually really disturbing.  Wryly observing that the OP mixed up two Asian countries (while OP was defending the white lady hero for shooting an Asian man for not serving her) means I need to chill out, that I was freaking out, and that I wasn’t correcting the OP calmly enough.

OP started their post with “shut the fuck up” and ended it with “you’re overreacting per usual, just shut up and enjoy it” but I’m the one who needs to calm down.   Okay…

[For the record, in the US —historically and in modern day—white ethnicities and countries of origin are conflated and white ethnic identities erased for the sake of increasing the political power of white people, while Asian ethnicities and countries of origin are conflated and erased to remove political power from Asian Americans.   Generally, when Asian American identities are confused there is an underlying dynamic of racism.   That’s probably why you’ve not been in a position to “freak out.”  (Though your definition of “freak out” appears to be “observe wryly that OP confused two Asian countries while OP was politely telling people concerned about racism to “shut the fuck up.”)]

This is literally how little white people care about us. 

+ Tom Bramwell: I Am Sexist

discovergames:

equalityingames:

This is an open, honest article that highlights the deeply-entrenched, systematic sexism found not only in games, but in society in general. Bramwell shares his realization that he has been casually, unintentionally sexist for his whole life.

And while it’s important to call out overt and aggressive sexism (or racism or ageism or homophobia or numerous other -isms), it’s equally important to understand how so many of us unconsciously and unintentionally behave in sexist ways every day. It’s so ingrained in the fabric of society that even well-meaning people perpetuate the problem without realizing it.

I would encourage us all to read this, examine our own behavior, and think about how we can behave more mindfully.

This is definitely a good article for everyone to read, from those actively fighting sexism in games every day, to those who scoff at the idea that it even exists. For that latter group, it shows how sexism doesn’t have to be a giant conspiracy or even obvious, but can in fact be personal and subtle, and committed by well-meaning, unknowing participants. Bonus points because the person writing this article is the Editor-in-Chief of Eurogamer, and when the people having the conversation are the people in charge and the people setting the tone, the community benefits even more from that.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

it’s basically impossible to be nice to straight dudes without them thinking you want to fuck them @_@

black excellence

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.

Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.

Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.

So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.

As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”

Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information,
including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.

When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

YAAASSS Bitch read ha!!! Let ha know!!!
