Shattered Junk
Sub blog of shattered-earth. so she can categorize things from her dashboard without intruding on her art blag. Also hidey hole from people she knows will disapprove lol.

Tag links are really just for her but whatever.

Inspiration: stuff that's inspirational or for reference that is not painted/drawn art.

Srs Stuff: All posts regarding real world issues DO NOT FOLLOW THIS BLOG IF YOU DO NOT CARE.

"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.

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.

But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.

If he looked like this

I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”

Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.

A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

ALL OF THIS.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

Good lord, the fluidity of her movement is mind-bending, jfc

"Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do?"

Because of statements like that. You can’t claim to have respect for all people who are pole dancers while implying sex workers are somehow not as strong, skilled, and beautiful as the women in the gif. Strippers earn money by pole dancing; the women above pay money to learn the techniques developed by the strippers. And then they have the gall to claim that it’s not sexual whatsoever. Maybe, and this is gonna sound crazy, expressing sexuality isn’t the end of the world.

Not to mention that sex workers are disproportionately low income poc but these fuckers only started caring when pole dancing was taken over by rich white girls. Just. Saying.

Oh P.S. acting like the olympics aren’t overly sexualized is hilarious. Why do you think female beach volley ball is played in the uniform it’s played in while mens is played in what it’s played it? take a guess.

every class is art class if you dont care enough

musicemo sent: There are hundreds of posts on Tumblr where people of Asian cultures on here saying they don't care if people wear clothes of their culture (my favorite being the little girl on a kimono from humans of new york post). Really only white jw care.

There are hundreds of japanese people on tumblr who make posts about how they do care.

The ‘only white ESSJAWWYYDOUBLELEYYEEWSSS” is a falsehood used in order to silence marginilzed groups that oppose your desired view of the world.

try again.

something to add is whether or not the people who are ok with things are diasporic or not

Japanese people living in Japan don’t face racism in the same way (or the same kind of racism) that Japanese people living in the United States do, for example

IMPORTANT TO MENTION!^^^

+ The End of Gamers

The last few weeks in videogame culture have seen a level of combativeness more marked and bitter than any beforehand.

First, a developer—a woman who makes games who has had so much piled on to her that I don’t want to perpetuate things by naming her—was the target of a harassment campaign that…

This is really strong.

OK, I am getting super annoyed with men talking about this framing the discussion as being in a history where women only recently started playing games or contributing to the industry.

WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS GAMED. THE FIRST COMPUTER PROGRAMMER WAS A WOMAN. GET THIS THROUGH YOUR SKULL.

It’s like figures forcing you to concede that adult women make up roughly half of gamers have just made you move it back ‘Oh, well, they didn’t used to’ or ‘They only used to play girly games/casual games’. STOP. NO. I KNOW YOU THINK YOU’RE HELPING, BUT YOU’RE NOT.

We have always been here and we have always experienced shitty levels of sexism and exclusion when we have tried to do so.

The difference is that the Intenert has made the fact that we game and talk about gaming and critique gaming and write games impossible to ignore. That is why the backlash has become so vicious. Erasure by simply acting as though we aren’t there isn’t possible anymore, so the tactics have become more direct.

Look, guys, I appreciate that you care and that you want to show your outrage (and pat each other on the back for being so powerfully outraged) but you really need to be aware of how you can still be and are perpetuating the culture that begets this.

Stop painting us as new. Stop painting us as taking someone else’s toys.  Stop pretending that the sexism of the ‘old days’ was OK, because only boys played. No. Girls played. Women played. Women have always played. The sexism was there not as some kind of natural consequence of only supplying to boys, but as a consequence of the massively sexist culture in which we still exist and in which you partake.

i can’t believe i now live on a planet where kotaku is seen as “sjw”. it’s the year 2014 and the worst gaming news sites on earth are now seen as progressive because the discourse on gaming has amazing gone so backwards that we have to play by rules that deem kotaku in favor of social justice.

unbelievable lol

Has anybody a link to a nice coherent write up on what that whole jontron bizniz is – including what was said by who and stuff? This is completely ungooglable. Help?

I don’t know if there’s a write up but basically about 3 weeks ago he tweeted something along the lines of calling playstation now the R-word and someone asked him to not use that word to which he responded with calling that person that and then going on a mini twitter woe is me the tumblr facists are mad at me boo hohoo while his fans made fun of people who asked him politely not to use the word like that etc.

And then recently he tweeted at tim schafer’s femfreq video saying it was bad and that men had it just as hard being represented in gaming etc (LITERALLY used this image to “prove” it LOL), to which tim schafer said he was dissapointed to see him say something like that and then jon tron accused him of sending his fans to “Attack” him. by attack he means rebutting his public tweet with tweets of their own but you know, straight white dudes.

so recently he’s just been playing the WEEEH POPULAR GAME DEVS ARE HARRASSING MEEEEEEEEEEEE thing

lgbtlaughs:

mrdappersden:

Buy all of these people’s products to make shitbabies mad.

go buy these games/support these devs and further the evil social justice warrior crusade against helpless straight cis white normal guy matyrs jontron et al

how convenient, a shopping guide for games!

Of the indies, i personally recommend Gone Home if you like exploration and Ridiculous Fishing (Vlambeer) on ios/android if you love awesome. Great art style, amazing music and damn damn damn dammnn fun gameplay.

fuck white people trying to define cultural appropriation.

just because my mom who was born and raised in china, where she had a life of seeing her own people as people, thinks white people wearing qipao is cute doesn’t change the fact that if i wore one i’d be pegged as a sexy esl geisha (YES WITH THE WRONG ETHNICITY) while a white woman would be a cosmopolitan.

fuck
