svmadelyn: #what if like years down the line#in a war of attrition#Tazer tiredly just gives in#or like Kaner is bummed in the playoffs#and Tazer does it as a cheer up morale thing#and then they start WINNING#and then oh God he’s committed to this shitty shitty path
WHY WOULD YOU PUT THAT OUT INTO THE WORLD?
especially because by that point tazer and kaner both will probs have very little going on up top. dear merciful god, deliver us from the receding hairline mullet.
(fun fact, if you google image search receding hairline mullet, kaner is already one of the top results lolSOB.)
Before I had tumblr I had no idea there were any sexualities other than heterosexual and homosexual. I never considered gender inequalities still existed.
That doesn’t mean I was purposely trying to discriminate or upset people.
There is a difference between being just ignorant of something and purposefully discriminating.
Give someone a chance to learn and be enlightened before you slam them as rude, horrible people
Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly, how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?
