Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.

They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.

And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.

To the point where many among the sort of person depicted in this episode point out that Lauren Faust later regretted writing the episode. What they conveniently leave out is the fact that it was because of all the death threats she received from that sort of person.

Things the social justice warriors of tumblr have taught me

waitwateven:

1. It’s absolutely, 100% fine, even encouraged, to judge people and discriminate against them entirely based on something outside of their control, like skin color, sexuality, gender, etc. It’s encouraged to promote hatred of people for these things, because it’s a healthy way to let out pent-up emotion and frustration.

2. People with privilege, especially white cishet males, can not suffer in any way (because of their privilege, they are exempt from difficulties in life). Obviously only minorities can suffer from lack of money, mental illness, loss, or other hardships.

3. There’s no need for you to educate yourself and read up on the subject that you’re speaking for. Relevant books are only written by white male cishets who are terrified to experience the fall of patriarchy and therefore should be ignored and referred to as an unreliable source when used in the opposing argument to show a point. Personal experience and stories you’ve heard (obviously true, regardless of where you’ve heard them from) are the only reliable references you use in your arguments.

4. If anyone opposes you, regardless of their argument, just tell them they a) are bigoted able-bodied white cishet males trying to oppress you or b) if they’re part of a minority group, tell them they have unfortunately internalized the patriarchy, poor souls. If they object, scour their argument for anything that could give them away for being ableist (do they suggest you actually go out and do something to further your cause? do they call you out for using improper grammar? do they use the word st*pid or d*mb?), ageist (do they say you’re immature? do they say you have no experience or that you’re too young to argue these things?), etc.

5. One person can speak for the entire group. Even if they are not part of that group. In fact, especially if they aren’t part of that group. As long as they are pointing out oppression, it must be true. For example, white people calling out others for cultural appropriation for getting henna tattoos. However, this does not apply if a single person says a group is not oppressed, regardless if they are part of that group, because they’ve probably just internalized the patriarchy anyway.

6. It’s okay—nay, encouraged!—to make up your own definitions to suit your argument. If someone tries to argue against you (for example, if you say racism against white people doesn’t exist) by copying and pasting the dictionary definition, say that the dictionary is wrong. Brownie points if you say that the dictionary is a result of the patriarchy and its definitions are just a way of systemic oppression.

7. What happens on your public blog is private. Forget that your blog is part of an enormous web of blogs on tumblr and that it’s surprisingly easy to find your way to an obscure post. If somebody finds your post complaining about cishets and whines about it, they obviously were intruding on a private conversation and should be told to mind their own business.

8. Evidence to back up claims should only come from Tumblr. Anecdotes, statistics, facts, definitions, opinions…. All of it should come from that post you saw one time on Tumblr but have now lost. Somebody uses outside sources against you? Don’t bother checking it out because what you saw was the truth. Why would something you read one time not be true?

9. Contradict yourself as much as possible. Ignore anyone who tries to point out your hypocrisy, because they are just white cishet male scum. 

10. Be angry. For God’s sake, if nothing else, be angry. You’ve been wronged. You are still being wronged. You will be wronged for eternity and there’s nothing you can do about it but hate nearly everyone around you for things outside their control and your control. Anger will solve everything if it’s powerful enough.

I can think of something that she needs in her “slot” and “hole.”

Does she not understand how freakin’ building blocks work? Try building a Lego castle without slots and holes and see how that works for you.

Next they’ll whine about plugs and sockets

Fuck, now electrical appliances are going to be sexist (when I worked in a theater, we called them male and female ends… woops). As are pen and caps, pencil sharpeners, thread/needles, toasters//bread, half the furniture you assemble has slots, holes, and pegs, FUCKING SHIT.
-the Polish one

I’m 99% certain this is a fake made by /v/. They made a lot of fake feminist Kotaku articles.

This is a blog post that’s incredibly confusing and painful for me to write.

Yesterday morning, Josh forwarded me a tweet that said:

TIL: Max Temkin, co-creator of Cards Against Humanity, raped a friend of my friend while attending Goucher College. I don’t support CAH.

We assumed this was…

You do realize that you’re setting an equally harmful precedent by *not* suing her for libel, right? The more stories of people getting away with making false accusations that people see, the less likely they are to trust legitimate ones.

Keiichi Ooishi no Uwasa Jikenbo ABC ~type-R~

I feel the need to remind everyone that this exists.

That there is a real Higurashi character image song of Keiichi and Ooishi rapping about the Hinamizawa murders, in which the chorus is, “do you know oyashiro-sama? / yes, hinamizawa / i kill you, you kill me / no, hinamizawa” in Engrish.

And on the Character Remix CD ~Nanika ga Chigau no Desu~, they felt the need to make an official rock remix of it.

I love how since Higurashi takes place in the 80s all the character songs are done like 80s songs.

unlimitedgoats asked:

Regarding the inclusion of a female protagonist in Assassin's Cred Unity, devs at Ubisoft said that they'd have redo a lot of animation, a lot of costumes and that it would have doubled the work they needed to do for the game. Of course, I know nothing about game development but would it really have been that difficult especially if they had started with the idea of having a female character included? I'm sure there will be female npcs and side characters, where exactly would the difficulty lie?

askagamedev answered:

I wondered if I would get a question about this after I heard about that kerfuffle. I’ve gotten a number of questions about it, so I thought I’d post my take on the matter here. The answer that it would take double the work is not entirely accurate, but it also isn’t a completely trivial task to do either.
