Do we really have to take this?
A friend of mine was moving from her apartment. She asked me to look after some of her things. I agreed and not too long after she asked if her daughter Frances can come pick it up. I agreed and she came over with her boyfriend, who was also the father of her baby. I helped them carry the stuff down to the car, and during the whole visit exchanged possibly 10 words.
Next day I received these texts. I had to created a fiancee I didn’t really have in order for him to stop.
I never told my friend what her daughter’s boyfriend did. Now they are expecting a second child, so as you all see, there was no break up.
So Do we women really have to take this kind of attitude?
Do we have to invent things and people in order to be left alone.
I don’t want to have my titties banged.
I am not an easy lay.
I don’t deserve this.
Why do I go from being called “cute” “smart” and “pretty” in the beginning of the conversation, to “fatty” “bitch” and “ugly” in the end?
Reblog if you are against sexual harassment.
I’M SORRY BUT THIS REALLY PISSED ME OFF AND I NEEDED TO VENT.
So I liked this page last year for the shits and gigs, as you do. I found it funny, and let slide the few sexist posts.
Only recently- and after I got a tumblr- did I really start to notice the abundance of rape, sexist and racist jokes appearing on my news feed. And it pissed me off.
I said nothing, however, because what could I do? Send in a message to the page and get labelled a whore and a slut by the Admins as I’ve seen so many people do?
Then this motherfucking gem popped up.
I usually don’t get involved in these sorts of things; if I do my comment gets lost more often than not and goes unnoticed. But I had to comment, I really had to.
I thought my argument was valid and whole, and I was actually rather happy when he admin directly replied to my comment.
I narrowed down my five favourite games ever and posted them.
Of course, I got beaten and labeled down once again.
When I asked for a rational clarification of his definitions of “casual” and “core” he did not reply. It was only when I directly insinuated the bias of his claim did I get a response.
“A feminist I see. No arguments need to be made. Good luck with getting them eggs fertilized”
Note the use of “feminist” as an insult.
I have had my fair share of gender specific hate regarding gaming. I get told I am a fake and a bitch if I get a high score; I get told to “suck a dick because you are better at that, bitch” if I get a low score; I get told to “get back in the kitchen, slut” without any prompt at all, simply because I have a vagina.
I am beyond sick of this. I hate the fact that if a male who hypothetically plays a few hours of CoD can be easily called a gamer by the wider community but I if were to say that I was a level 34 on Skyrim I would immediately be called a fake geek girl, a casual gamer and a liar.
I hate the fact that, even though 45% of gaming consumers are female, developers and publishers still believe that there is not a large enough demographic for female protagonists.
I hate the fact that most women in video games are no more than sexulised objects in skimpy clothing.
I hate the fact that I cannot enjoy a game without being labeled and branded because of the fact that I posses a vagina and not a penis.
~sorry about the long post clogging up your dash. I needed to vent~
Off-topic somewhat, but important.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I AM SO MAD
At what point did World of Warcraft become casual? I can’t wait to inform my friend the WoW player that he’s only a casual gamer.
I’m really hoping the fucker in OP’s message is a virgin and will never breed… from his ridiculous shit I would assume so though.
What’s unfortunate is that I play and know about more videogames and videogame history than a vast majority of my coworkers, and I work at a videogame developer. Working in games, knowing about them, and playing them are a huge part of my life. And yet stupid neckbearded nitwits like this guy will somehow still think I would be a “casual” just because I’m a girl.
Also, this guy apparently has no clue what the fuck the word “casual” means.
SO what the fuck did he want you to say you played? Cause I’ll tell you one thing there ain’t shit casual about a game where people, including women, have logged over 500 hours of gametime. Or a series where that isn’t even weird.
I’d’ve come back with “so what games do you think I have to play in order to not be a ‘casual’ gamer” just for shits and grins. Either way, hope you unliked the fuck out of this page.
Wow. To see some guy call a girl a “feminist” just because she’s calling him out on his sexist bullshit. It makes me so mad.
I don’t really know how to make this into “thin privilege is…” so I’ll just write the thing that happened to me today. I’m a high school student and at my biology class today we discussed somthing like society’s problems and how to help them. There came a few suggestions about more education and…
