    • Me: Hi. I see you have a grievance. Please tell me about it.
    • GamerGater: It's NOT ABOUT MISOGYNY, okay?!?!
    • Me: I didn't say it was. Wasn't it something about corrup-
    • GamerGater: We don't even care about Zoe Quinn anymore! That's old news. It's not about that UGLY WHORE FUCKING FIVE GUYS to get good press!
    • Me: Ok, fine. You're the only one bringing that up. So, what's your cause really about, then?
    • GamerGater: We want to stop corruption in games journalism!
    • Me: Great, me too! There's a lot of troubling stuff going on with the big, corporate interests, not to mention the ugliness of the consumerism and the blatant violation of the "no cheering in the press box" rule. I'm glad you want to work to root out this kind of-
    • GamerGater: No, we don't care about that stuff.
    • Me: Oh, ok. What are your main "corruption" concerns, then?
    • GamerGater: Reviewers talk about stupid stuff like "diversity" in reviews.
    • Me: That's not corruption; it's just something they care about that you don't.
    • GamerGater: Also, some game journalists don't like the stereotypical image of "gamers" and they write editorials about that.
    • Me: Also not corruption. That's just a different opinion, stated in a place set aside for opinions.
    • GamerGater: Okay, but a lot of games journalists seem to know each other and they talk sometimes.
    • Me: Yeah, that's just communication between colleagues. I'm starting to think you don't know what "corruption" means.
    • GamerGater: B-but, developers prostitute themselves to journalists to get good reviews!
    • Me: Oh wow, really? Okay, yes, that DOES sound like corruption. I'd love to see the review you're talking about and and then really go after that reviewer for his unethical conduct.
    • GamerGater: Actually, that review never happened.
    • GamerGater: Also, we've only been going after the woman developer, not the journalist.
    • Me: Even though your whole cause is supposedly about ethics in journalism?
    • GamerGater: Well when you put it like THAT it sounds ridiculous...

    I’d appreciate your manslation here. Though not really a manslation. I’d appreciate your paraphrasing. “I like being a women in a world where feminism fights for me, I just don’t want to turn people off by backing up said movement fighting for me.”

    Amy Poehler says it much better than I could:

    That’s like someone being like, “I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it.”

    Isn’t humanism about doing good deeds without religion?

    Humanism is a school of thought that emphasizes the importance of human life and achievement over the worship of supernatural deities.

Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.

a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shita show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually actdo i really need to go on

not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man

I honestly saw this and was like “This is a poster that’s fixed to give you more reasons to watch it, right?”

  8. Gaming culture was never anything but this weird, insular, xenophobic ghetto built around very toxic notions of masculinity and persecution complex. Games marketed at boys promoted and reinforced this hyper-machismo image, and gamers were seeking to embody it and so it went in an endless self-reinforcing circle. It is no accident that teenagers scream homophobic and gender slurs into their head-sets or brag about “raping” the opposing team in Call of Duty. It’s no accident that video game related message boards basically invented the “tits or gtfo” greeting. It is no accident that Anita Sarkesian could post feminist critiques of SF films, TV shows and novels without much harassment but the moment she started talking about video games, she instantly got death and rape threats. Because this community was not built around tolerance, acceptance of criticism or diversity. It was a fortress of solitude built by man-children to protect their toys from evil mainstream activists.

    The Forgotten 1950s Girl Gang

    No idea if this photo set is already here somewhere…it likely is…but this is a bit rad…
    full article here: http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/02/10/the-forgotten-1950s-girl-gang/
    _———————————————

    You might have heard of the Teddy Boys, a 1950s rebel youth subculture in Britain characterized by an unlikely style of dress inspired by Edwardian dandies fused with American rock’n roll. They formed gangs from East London to North Kensington and became high profile rebels in the media. But an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls.

    These are one of just a few known collections of documented photographs of the first British female youth culture ever to exist. In 1955, freelance photographer Ken Russell was introduced Josie Buchan, a Teddy Girl who introduced him to some of her friends. Russell photographed them and one other group in Notting Hill.

    After his photographs were published in a small magazine in 1955, Russell’s photographs remained unseen for over half a century. He became a successful film director in the meantime. In 2005, his archive was rediscovered, and so were the Teddy Girls.

    Russell remembers 14 year-old Teddy Girl, Jean Rayner: “She had attitude by the truckload. No one paid much attention to the teddy girls before I did them, though there was plenty on teddy boys. They were tough, these kids, they’d been born in the war years and food rationing only ended in about 1954 – a year before I took these pictures. They were proud. They knew their worth. They just wore what they wore.”

    To understand the Teddy Girls style, we first have to go back to the boys culture. They emerged in England as post-war austerity was coming to an end and working class teenagers were able to afford good clothes and began to adopt the upper class Saville Row revival of dandy Edwardian fashion. By the mid 1950s, second-hand Edwardian suits were readily available on sale in markets as they had become unwearable by the upper-class once the Teddy Boys had started sporting them. The Teds, as they called themselves, wore long drape jackets, velvet collars, slim ties and began to pair the look with thick rubber-soled creeper shoes and the ‘greaser’ hairstyles of their American rock’n’roll idols.

    Despite their overall gentlemanly style of dress (certainly compared to today), the Teddys were a teenage youth culture out to shock their parents’ generation, and quickly became associated with trouble by the media.

    Teddy girls were mostly working class teens as well, but considered less interesting by the media who were more concerned with sensationalizing a violent working class youth culture. While Teddy boys were known for hanging around on street corners, looking for trouble, a young working class woman’s role at the time was still focused around the home.

    But even with lower wages than the boys, Teddy girls would still dress up in their own drape jackets, rolled-up jeans, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars and put their feminine spin on the Teddy style with straw boater hats, brooches, espadrilles and elegant clutch bags. They would go to the cinema in groups and attend dances and concerts with the boys, collect rock’n’roll records and magazines. Together, they essentially cultivated the first market for teenage leisure in Britain.

    In the end it was the troublesome reputation of the Teddy Boys that got the better of this youth subculture. Most of the violence and vandalism was exaggerated by the media, but there were notably a few gangs that chose a darker path.

    I have some friends who might love this.
