I’m… Gonna go lay down for a minute…
I agree. I think one of the most interesting things about feminist issues is that most of the time the sexism goes both ways.
I don’t think people have so much of a problem with two guys helping Barbie, but in the book Barbie says she’s only really doing the design/ideas because she’s not good at the coding part and has to rely on other people to do it for her. So essentially she’s only computer engineer in title. It gives the impression that only men are the ones actually capable with working on computers, and considering that’s still a stereotype that persists today that’s not really a good thing.
Barbie being full of sexist bs isn’t really a new thing, so I don’t know why people are acting like it is. This is really hilarious though. “We’re gonna make Barbie a computer engineer? Let’s have her break her and her sister’s computer and then rely on two guys to fix it for her while she takes the credit for everything.” Grade A, gentlemen, grade A.
For real? One of the reasons Hoenn is my favorite regions is because of the water!
First game reviewers criticize X/Y for feeling “too much like a pokemon game” and now they’re complaining about too much water? What other idiotic things do they have to say?
I’m not the guy that works out the budgets for this kinda thing, but animation can eat up more money than you’d expect. Not only are you paying the people animating the thing and their equipment, but you’re also paying for all the voice work, music, writing, etc. Yeah, it’s not show quality, but the quality of the product still has to be pretty frikin good to sell it to the network.
Neither of those franchises could even touch the fucking branding the Lorax had
Frankly these guys were lucky the parents were good sports about it. They could have easily gotten badly beaten for this prank and onlookers could have called the cops. But, you know, at least it turned out well in the end
We specifically have a section in the NSFW guidelines that allows exceptions to the rule when it comes to documenting certain trends like… Well… This. It doesn’t mean we can post this kind of content in any gallery, but it’s allowed in this one.
From a REAL television personality.
Welp, after seeing the closeup of the picture I’m not gonna sleep for a week.
I would say I would love to see someone like Ashens do a video on this thing (god knows someone would find it and send it to him) but that would mean I’d have to look at that picture again. No thank you.
And here I thought the worst thing would be the stolen Cardcaptor Sakura art on the packaging.
Technically (at least in the library I work at) you need photo id and/or proof of residence, but yeah there’s not much required to get a card
I don’t see what’s wrong with the bi-gender one. Being genderqueer (which I assume bi-gender fits under) is actually a legit thing, and it’s not like the poster was being particularly crazy in their post either.
I don’t know, the only problem I really had with that one with the fat girl is that she refused to talk to people she deemed “unattractive” and then claimed it wasn’t shallow. Yes, sweetie, it is shallow. Other than that, I can actually sort of feel her pain.
It’s a children’s game. A bunch of kids sit in a circle and another kid (the kid that’s “it”) circles around behind them and taps each kid on the head. Every time the kid taps a head he says “duck” until he taps a head and says “goose” (or grey duck if you’re in Minnesota apparently) and the kid marked as the “goose” has to chase the “it” kid around the circle of children. If the “it” kid makes it around the circle and sits in the spot the goose was in then the goose now becomes “it”. If the goose catches the kid and tags him then that kid is still “it” and has to start over again
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if a couple days from now people were posting articles on how creepy this is. Considering this has only been alive for like a day there hasn’t been enough time for a backlash to occur, so in my opinion it’s a little too early to call this a double standard just yet. Also, we don’t know if the people that are spreading this picture of Alex are the same ones that say “hello counts as harassment”. So there’s that.
Call me crazy, but the idea of taking someone’s picture (without their consent), posting it all over the internet and getting him internet famous because of his looks is incredibly creepy. At least he seems to be ok with it.
Not to mention practically the very first thing to come out of his mouth was “I bet you wouldn’t have a problem if those men were hot”… When in the video their fucking faces were blurred out so you couldn’t tell anyway.
Holy shit this guy couldn’t make a good argument to save his life. He literally used every single bad argument that could possibly be used about this subject.
Complaining about the over-saturation of thin models in advertisements isn’t a new thing, so I’m not entirely sure why everyone is reacting as if this is some new sjw trend. Conversations about models in advertisements and the messages it gives to its consumers (especially young children) is a conversation worth having imo.
That being said… This is a weird thing for people to be picking a fight about. Like, when the advertisement says “the perfect body” they’re talking about the fucking underwear. If this was something similar to what Old Navy did a few years ago where they tried to advertise having jeans for “every body type” and all their models looked basically the same that’s one thing, but this was Victoria’s Secret just being cheeky by looking like they’re talking about body types but they’re really talking about the bra. Still kinda tasteless, but not worth the fuss.
Something tells me the guy on facebook was trying to be cheeky
Well how the fuck are you gonna sell people shit if you just insult them? There was just no thought put into the word choice.
Apparently Walmart missed the memo that it’s called “plus sized”
Seriously, whose idea was it to say “fuck calling it plus sized, we’re just gonna call the category ‘fat girl’”
