The name is Conor. I’ll be seeing you around the internets.
She… She’s saying everything that we want to hear. How can this 60+ year old woman be this informed and culturally aware of gaming and gamers, something her generation hardly understands? I can’t help but feel like we’re being coaxed into some sort of snafu.
Regardless, she still makes valid points that most certainly hold up.
However, one thing that kind of has me worried is how people will perceive this video and ones similar to it. In the wake of GamerGate, Zoe Quinn, Feminist Frequency, etc, I can see a lot of people taking this video and going “HEY, look at THIS, FEMINISTS! One of your kind says that you’re full of shit!” I feel that using this as ammunition to fire back at Feminist critics isn’t the right way to go about this.
Finally, after quickly skimming Christina Hoff Sommers’s Wikipedia page, I found out that she is known for her critique of modern Feminism and some even consider her an Anti-Feminist. Just something interesting and perhaps also something to keep in mind when citing this woman in the future, especially when doing so around other Feminists.
Tumblr is exploding with these gifs! I’m not sure how long this will last, but I find it absolutely hilarious and I don’t even like the Madden games.
So when we get on the topic of women’s bodies, women flip out and say that men have absolutely no right to say ANYTHING but when we talk about men’s bodies, women say whatever they want and try to make the decision for men? I really hope it’s not the “my body, my choice” women making these arguments.
You got a problem with wide, child bearing breasts on a young lass in her prime?
But then Lucina will have too many husbandos! Not only is Lucina everyone’s waifu, but tons of FE:A players paired Male Robin x Lucina because dedicating yourself to marrying your best friend’s daughter is a thing?
Scoot over, Rob! Ryan is the new balloon guy! (If you’re lucky, Ray and Ryan will let you into the R&R connection.)
Don’t forget about Cory/SpazKidIn3D. He’s in cahoots with Shadman and helps him with pretty much all of his comics and stuff.
C’mon, Craig it up!!!
Eh, maybe not QUITE that adorable, but I did think Nana was coming out of Samus’s dress for a second.
I get that when the cosplayer looks like the actual character, everything comes together nicely, but news flash! Most people don’t actually resemble fictional characters. Even if someone doesn’t have the same body type or skin tone as the character they are portraying, there is a difference between a shitty cosplay and a good cosplay done by someone who doesn’t necessarily look like the character they are cosplaying as. Someone with Tony Stark’s body type and a Duct Tape IronMan suit is a shitty cosplay. Fat IronMan with a quality suit is not a shitty cosplay. It’s ok to not like a cosplay because it’s actually bad, but I don’t “dock off points” because the cosplayer isn’t the same body type as their character.
I’ve only played my X version as a male trainer but i feel like female trainers have better clothing options and better/more varied style overall when compared to male trainers…
Personally, I feel like Serperior was the best 5th gen starter in regards to competitive viability. (Although Emboar is RU in 5th Gen while the other two are in NU) Emboar was interesting to me and while I like Samurott’s design, I would never use on on my team. I chose Oshawott as my starter in White 2 and I hated it.
Terry Crews IS the drill that will peirce the heavens!!!!
32 years old is oddly young for a Goddess and also oddly specific. The Kid Icarus Wikia says that “according to Masahiro Sakurai, Palutena is 22 years old when converted from the human body.” Most likely not her actual age, but I guess that implies what age she is supposed to convey. Also, the time between Medusa’s original defeat and her reappearance in Uprising is 25 years, so there’s that information if we want to try and use it to speculate on her actual age.
With the passing of the Year of Luigi, we now move on to the the Year of Swole/Year of Lift.
At least 50 cent’s Pitch stayed in the air. Carly Rae Jepsen on the other hand…
XP Absolutely not.
WhipperSnapper, you are correct, the current and most modern form of Feminism is in deed Third Wave Feminism. But just to clarify, Third Wave Feminists are a majority of all Feminists, not just the ones on Tumblr and Third Wave Feminism is just as good and basically better than First and Second Wave Feminism.
Also, I agree with Captain Howel in his interpretation of the gif.
I read the hentai where this came from and it made me feel physically sick… I regret everything…
How about if they are a step parent? Because my step mom is a bitch.
Oh Micoo, mah boi. You’re mah boi, Micoo!
If everyone ACTUALLY wanted Goku in Smash, then yes, there would be more people getting mad at this image but at this point, I think people are just saying it out of satire or as a joke, similar to how they say they want Shrek in Smash.
Makes me think of Hamtaro for some reason. I guess because the focus is on Hamsters and this is coming out of Japan.
And every time the rest of the Zaibatsu fucks up, Matt grounds them.
