Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.

yep, no problems here!
I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…

Look at that smug face. And he’s doing a little dance!! You can see he’s victory dancing in his head xD [x]

McKellen and Stewart’s friendship gives me life
for some reason, these dudes following me on twitter and tumblr seem to believe that pornography is a necessity and that it is MY responsibility to supply them with free content or “samples”. they really expect me to totally disregard my JOB in order to give them what they want, and it’s absolutely laughable. porn is a luxury, and just like any other luxury; if you can’t afford it, you don’t get it. that, or you buy it anyway and face the consequences later 😅
if you want a sample, you better be giving me a sample of that cash ;)
