It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
reminder that Karkat and Equius are the only two trolls who have never attempted murder
Equius killed people all the time to feed Feferi’s lusus
I made you a guide
3 of those trolls only tried to kill vriska which barely counts
when i bought pokemon X i picked fennekin and squirtle okay
right now we focus on my squirtle, Kazoo, who had a bold personality or something like that
so ofc because he was proud he sparkled
when Kazoo became a Blastoise I was battling him with my friend and she was like “haha holy shit how did you get a shiny blastoise”
i cried for twenty minutes straight
i thought he was sparkly because he had self confidence
We’ve finished the first half of Archaeospain’s program at Monte Testaccio in Rome, where we examine an artificial mound that was created by centuries of discarded broken amphorae. In ancient times, amphorae were the main containers used for the transportation and storage…
yeah she’ll take you clubbing
Pikachu has 4800 hp. he is an unstoppable tank. He endures wave after wave of Kyogre’s surf, watching his health melt but feeling no fear. He can ride these waves. he can ride them forever. this tiny mouse cannot be defeadted
i use the word constructive a lot, sometimes i feel like it’s almost hokey to use it a lot, but i think the difference between discourse being constructive and/or destructive is good to keep in mind.
a lot of folks are very good at tearing things and people down, which certainly has its uses. for example i’d be lying if i said i didn’t delight in knowing that sam pepper’s sexual harassment media enterprise is starting to unravel. there’s plenty of reasons to know your way around destructive action.
but i also like to build, and reshape, and patch up, and see to it that new, better things happen in place of or as improvements to older, less good things, and i am much more interested in myself being a part of that process, when the opportunity arises.
If you’re tired of celebrity death hoaxes and misreported news bulletins, a rumor-tracking site dedicated to sorting fact from fiction might be your new favorite.
As evolving technologies and expectations force media outlets to report the news as quickly as they can, errors and misreporting happen more often they should (even here at Mic from time to time).
