The biggest nerd around!
Maybe if stuff like this continues China will finally stop keeping North Korea from imploding on itself like they’ve been for basically forever. If North Korea’s going to be threatening war over a fucking movie than the cons of working with them vastly outweigh the pros.
Take an upvote because you just made my fucking day.
To be fair, it’s not like there’s never been a woman with a masculine name or a man with a feminine name. Like krampuzli333 mentioned below there’s a woman named Jeff Milton. And within the game itself no one ever refers to Mike by any gendered pronouns so unless a later game or Scott Cawthorn say otherwise I guess you could assume Mike’s a girl. Who even cares? It’s not like Mike’s gender affects the game in any way. Is this really something worth whining about Tumblr over?
I think you’re giving them too much credit.
Oh God how I pray that Marvel finally gets to put Spidey in the MCU. With how Sony’s been mishandling the franchise (Amazing Spider-Man was okay, Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a nightmare with a few sweet spots, and my hopes are fairly low for Sinister Six. Not even mentioning the Aunt May film they apparently want to do; that’s like making a James Bond movie about Ms. Moneypenny filling out paperwork while Bond’s off on an assignment) and how Fox can’t make a X-Men or Fantastic Four movie worth shit without Bryan Singer holding their hands, I really feel like Marvel itself is the only film studio treating any of the Marvel characters with a hint of respect.
I notice a Black Mage in the background. No wonder these disputes are never solved, all they do is casts the spells that makes the peoples fall down.
Having fun beating that dead horse OP?
The sjws are really starting to overstep themselves. First they went after gamers and gamergate supporters, a demographic that already vastly outnumbered them, and now they’re going after metalheads too. These people have no idea how stupid it is to fight on two fronts; they’ll be constantly going back and forth between gamers and metalheads. Not only that, but they’ve also picked a fight with an enemy that would’ve left them be if they hadn’t felt the need to provoke an argument. The sjws provocative, “my-way-or-the-highway” style is going to really start biting them in the ass soon.
Also the people flipping out over that bill the idiots in Congress are trying to get passed need to chill out. It breaks several Constitutional amendments AND the Bill of Rights so even it doesn’t get laughed out by the Supreme Court, the president will most likely strike it down with a vengeance.
Her info was online publicly. The sjws basically tracked it down than spread it around and used it to harass her into losing her job. So basically the same thing as doxxing except they didn’t have to hack anything.
I think this whole issue has really highlighted a problem for Tumblr. The sjws have always been allowed to run free on the site doing whatever they want, harassing people and provoking problems because the staff is too chickenshit to actually deal with rulebreakers. It’s the exact same problem that Reddit had with all those creepy pedophile and creepshot subreddits way back when; everyone hated them and wanted the mods to crackdown on them, but the mods were too cowardly to intervene and let the assholes run wild until Something Awful released the Redditbomb and basically forced them to put a stop to it. If anything, what happened to plebcomics shows that a lot of internet communities are in desperate need of some proper moderators, otherwise shit like this will just keep happening.
You guys should see Tumblr right now. Basically everyone who even remotely dislikes the sjws on the site (which is basically every non-sjw on there. Tumblr’s community HATES the reputation those jackasses have given them) is flipping the fuck out and shouting at the staff to get those idiots under control. If incidents like this continue Tumblr’s gonna lose a lot of users. No one wants to use a site where psychotic assholes ruin your life over the slightest provocation; at least groups like Anonymous usually only go after people who have done something really bad or noticeable. Hopefully what happened to plebcomics can convince the staff to actually do their jobs and start dealing with rulebreakers for once instead of fucking up the dashboard mechanics than waiting for the xkit guy to fix shit.
“So yeah this thing is probably cursed by some ancient lovecraftian abomination and will likely drive you into insanity BUT THINK OF THE COLLECTOR’S VALUE”
GUYS IT’S FUCKING HAPPENING TO UNBELIEVABLE LEVELS
Anita Sarkeesian has not only been caught in more scams, but now it’s been discovered that before Feminist Frequency, she used to head PUA lectures. Wanna know what PUA lectures are? THEY’RE PICK-UP ARTIST SELF-HELP SEMINARS. The woman who has been constantly been moralizing us for sexualizing women used to run a service built around the express purpose of helping men have sex with women. That post is going all around Tumblr, getting THOUSANDS of notes. Sarkeesian’s buddies are all lashing out at her or dropping her. If this keeps going the way it is, Feminist Frequency may just lose everything.
In the wise words of Simon Furman: IT’S OVER… FINISHED.
Ugh. Y’know I was actually a bit interested in Redshirt when I heard about it because I LOVE Sci-Fi stuff, thought it would be like a space sim or RPG like Star Citizen or Space Station 13, and because I was basically fooled into thinking it had something to do with John Scalzi’s awesome novel also called “Redshirt” (basically a Star Trek episode from the perspective of a redshirt who gets warned to “avoid the narrative” by a mysterious stranger, than tries to avoid getting killed off) but each time I hear about it sounds worse and worse. This just feels like the final nail in the coffin.
This just reminds of how the Sci-Fi genre has been having to deal with obnoxious sjws right alongside gaming in general. Lately there’s been tons of social justice assholes basically trying to pressure writers into making their stories as diverse as physically possible (because in the heads of sjws, something isn’t good unless it has as many minorities crammed into it as possible). I’ve seen a really old post somewhere on Tumblr ranting about how aliens in Sci-Fi shouldn’t follow the gender binary and accusing writers of being homophobic/transphobic/whatever.
Holy cow guys it’s TWO fucking stupid and pointless white guilt hashtags for the price of one!
I still can’t believe that Target dropped GTA on the insistence of SEX WORKERS. Like is that a demographic so vital to Target’s profits that they can’t risk offending them. Why drop a multi-million dollar game that’s been making huge profits ever since it was released just because a few butthurt retired hookers got their feelings hurt. That’s not really a good financial trade-off.
Also you would think that those former sex workers would have better things to do with their time than campaign against video games. Y’know, like actually helping abused women and other sex workers.
I’ve been seeing this go around Tumblr for the past few days. All the non-sjw users are fucking PISSED. I think that with Gamergate and all the shit involving the Mike Brown shooting, the sjws on Tumblr have finally overstepped their bounds and are beginning to wear away what little remaining patience the community had for their antics.
Yeah Tumblr is basically locked in a civil war between sjws and normal users over this; the sjws are basically more psychotic than ever and are doxxing and harassing anyone they perceive as either making racist comments or not helping the Ferguson protestors, meaning a bunch of neutral people are getting attacked. It’s getting so bad over there that the staff is having to step in and crackdown on rule breakers for the first time in ages. They even had to reset the Ferguson tag. And of course this has made the sjws flip out even more and start accusing the staff of being racists who are defending the KKK and neo-nazis. Now every other post about Ferguson includes some paranoid freak-out begging people to save the post before staff deletes it (which they never do).
How Avengers Vs X-Men should have ended.
For your question about the stormtrooper, most of the stormtroopers after the Clone Wars were volunteers. It’s kind of a long story but basically the Empire eventually lost the samples of Jango’s DNA and most clones were designed with shortened lifespans (that way they could be shoved out to battle quicker. This is also why Boba Fett wasn’t dead in four years flat; he was an unaltered clone and thus aged normally) so they had to turn to taking soldiers from the public like a normal army. And since this takes place after the original trilogy, the cloning facility on Kamino was probably shut down anyways so the Empire’s remnant has probably resorted to drafting people. Assuming they’re still following the old Empire’s human supremacism philosophy, anyone gets in as long as they’re pure human.
Okay general thoughts:
- The special effects are fucking AWESOME.
- The new stormtrooper armor looks badass.
- Extremely curious about the sith with the crossguard lightsaber; in the prior EU there was only one force user who had a lightsaber like that and the creators have said that most of the elements from the old EU will be brought back in, so maybe this is part of that.
All in all this looks like it may be really, really good. It certainly feels like a step in the right direction from the prequel trilogy. While I’m still a bit pissed about them throwing out the old EU, I have to admit that this movie is starting to win me over. Mainly because it seems like the people involved actually give a shit.
Actually the creators have said that the desert seen here isn’t on Tatooine. Apparently it’s part of some new planet.
So apparently a bunch of protestors are wanting to boycott stores on Black Friday to get justice for Brown. The logic here is apparently “Let’s get justice for Mike Brown by financially crippling a bunch of people who have zero links to the Ferguson police”.
I’m also starting to see a lot of backlash towards the Mike Brown supporters on other sites, mainly because all they’re doing at this point is attacking people who aren’t linked to the shooting and trying to force everyone to pay attention to them. Some Ferguson protestors have been trying to disrupt the Macy’s Day parade in New York just to make way for their protest. And of course there’s the idiots who are trying to be internet Batman and doxxing or harassing people they deem racist. There’s already been one case of an asshole framing his ex-girlfriend for racist comments and getting some Brown supporters to harass her and get her fired.
How ironic that in fighting corrupt police and supposed bigots, the protestors are acting like corrupt assholes and bigots themselves.
Why can’t FCKH8 just sit in a corner and shut the fuck up.
Yes I did sorry guys.
