Brand new episode of Tropes vs Women is online! Please heed the content warning on this video. It contains some especially triggering scenes of sexual violence.

I found this hard to watch. Even if you removed all of her commentary and just showed the clips from the games, it would be disturbing. 

I’ve tried reading some of the “rebuttals” of this video, but even if I wasn’t a crazy leftie liberal feminist whatever… it’s all nonsense. And I think they know it is too, because the most common response to this video is to attack the messenger. 

"This nagging ugly bitch just wants something to complain about like all social justice retards. The second you apologize or give them an inch they will simply criticize you more. "

That was the first reblog comment I saw in the notes. Using misogyny and slurs to try and de-legitimatize a video about misogyny is an interesting debate tactic.

It seems people are quite literally trying to kill the messenger. Attack her character. Make her look so bad that it undermines the message of the video.

It isn’t going to work. Something is clearly rotten in the state of gaming. It needs to be addressed.  It doesn’t matter if you like her or not… the truth is undeniable and people need to start accepting that.

She isn’t telling people they aren’t allowed to like their video games. She clearly states that at the beginning of all her videos. And what she is suggesting is not going to make games terrible and unfun. All that is desired is for women to be respected in gaming and perhaps a little more representation that isn’t two dimensional. That certainly doesn’t seem like it is worth threatening someone’s life to fight against. 

Watch the video. Parts one and two. Worth your time.

being called annoying is literally the worst thing ever because then you’re scared to ever say or do anything again and you end up isolating yourself because you think everyone hates you and you feel insecure about everything. long story short pls dont call people annoying

One of my worst fears is people thinking I’m annoying :(

THINGS I LIKE

  • when people use my name in conversation
  • when people say “this reminded me of you!”
  • when people remember little things i say/do
  • when people genuinely thank me for things i’ve done for them
  • when i think of the same thing at the same time as someone else and you give each other the look

my major problem with Frozen is that it is a perfectly passable and average and safe Disney movie and people keep trying to prove that it is amazing and daring and challenging and in doing so keep churning out bombs of secondhand embarrassment like “look there’s some not-white people in the background, we’ve come so far since the 1950s” and “Anna isn’t your typical perfect Disney beauty, she has freckles and eyebrows that are .5% thicker than Rapunzel’s”
