"Be the bigger person"

carriecutforth:

tcharlatan:

is bullshit advice.

My bigness is not determined by my capacity to quietly absorb bullying, degradation, or abuse.

This is the kind of mentality I’ve been dealing quietly with for months, and now that I’m rejecting it “i’m a crazy bitch” for not putting up with other’s disrespect of me any longer.

We have a similar saying in Germany “The smarter person gives in.”.

It’s a myth perpetuated by people who can shrug off shit because they benefit from the status quo.

If the system is on your side and the only thing that is a threat to you is change, the best thing is to grant “victory” in the moment to those who are oppressed, as if this all is just a fucking game.

You can feel so superior and benevolent, while at the same time sending people to their room as if they are your 4 year old kids and avoid any real conflict, suffocating any debate before you have to actually come up with defences for your privileged bullshit.

Congrats, you bigger person, you.

I want you to feel inadequate. And then I want you to crave for my approval. Isn’t that obvious?

I like to imagine Shepard won’t let him on the ship like that so she makes him stand outside while she hoses him down

omg tho

My Shepard would cover herself in the spilled guts of the slain creature. And then she and Grunt would smack their heads together in celebration of the fact that Grunt took down a fucking Thresher!

She would then share grilled pyjak meat with him.

They would not wash for weeks so that any enemy can smell their bloodlust and tremble in fear of being next!

She is not his owner. She is his battlemaster.

Been wanting to doodle Peggy Cap ever since that text post a few days ago. I MAY prefer this to Steve haha. She’s SUCH a competent agent to start with and give her super soldier abilities and holy crap.
(quick edit. forgot to color the helmet strap. Whoops)

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.


the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.



My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

Sigh.

Yeah, I watched the trailer after reading some very positive comments – also Scarlett Whooo! – but I immediately cringed once I saw where the film took place and the race coding is so fucking obvious.Seriously, do we have to go through every trope that makes american centric action films horrible exercises of racism allover again, but with female leads now? Just because female leads are a novelty?This is not progress. This is a rerun.

I spoke about Something Terrible with Kevin Smith on Fatman on Batman. It was an extreme honor.

(Note: Kev and I spoke pretty candidly, so apologies for language and opinions.)

Dang, I already teared up in Kev’s introduction. This is such powerful stuff.

Hey, sasuraiger. Yes, it is. It’s an updated version of that signifier article. The previous article is already 1.5 years old and I learned a lot in the mean time. So you can expect some fresh concepts, improved terminology, better examples and a more comprehensive look at the issue.

Huge new article on gender design in games and other media will launch in a couple of hrs.

Pizza cutters, I don’t get it. Why don’t people use their hands to open the box? This thing is not making it any easier. Dumbest invention ever!
