Bonobos are the smartest damn things. This is why I do my degree
I think we’ve got to a point where the whole idea’s that, every single thing in society, you pay for your little bit. This is all part of that, isn’t it? Every little thing.
Lampposts soon’ll have little meters in: you’ll put 5p in, and then it’ll give you just enough light to get to the next one. ‘Cause why should I pay for someone else’s light? I was indoors on the toilet, it’s not fair! Everything, the fire brigade: pay-per-gasp. I’m not paying for the fire brigade, I’m not on fire! I didn’t ask to be carried out of a window! Everything. These people are like that about everything. “Look at all the money that gets wasted on guide dogs. I can’t climb a tree, nobody buys me a gibbon!”
He wants help to make sure no one else does either. How the hell are we gonna prevent pedophilia if we are too afraid to even talk about what causes it?
I’ve talked to a couple of people about this issue before. Listen and try not to judge too soon. Nothing graphic in the story at all, but trigger warning for child abuse regardless
I can’t wait until the libraries in town open again tomorrow so I can have side of crepes from the crepe van to accompany my panic while I study
today at the bookstore i asked the lady working if she had any lgbtq books that i could check out and her eyes magnified in what i mistook as horror and i thought i had offended her and then she said “i have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement i’ve been waiting for someone to finally ask” and she all but burst down the stairs to get them for me
"I have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement" is my new go-to pickup line
The evolution of girl gamers
Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades?
- 1993 - 64% of girls reported playing video games
- 1996 - "home use had increased for fourth grade girls"
- 1998 - "both male and female adolescents play video games on a regular basis."
- 1999 - "88% of the female college students … surveyed were video game players."
- 2007 - 20-47% of adolescent girls play video games
- 2008 - "94% of girls play video games"
- 2010 - "Forty percent of all game players are women."
- 2012 - "Women 18 or older represent a significantly greater portion of the game-playing population (30%) than boys age 17 or younger"
- 2013 -"adult women are nearly half of all video game players"
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e
Been playing since I was old enough to hold the NES controller.
