How guys typically first react-
-and then are genuinely surprised when this-
-happens. Respect female gamers; they are just like male gamers, except for gender. And please, don’t creep on them either, Folks.
Reblogging for reasons.
im really worried about the fact that this is going on while the cops have media penned up waiting for some presser in a fucking hour
“ Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist. ”
this has been my rule of thumb for years
I just had to ban 5 people from my page for commenting on the post I made calling out someone harrassing me and saying things like “If you’re gonna dress like a slut, don’t bitch about the comments.”
and that I deserved it and other drivel.
Yes. Please continue to tell me how I should let boys tell me they want to cum on my tits and accept it as a god damn compliment because “its how I’m dressed.”
Okay. I’ll play your little game.
I’m dressed like a character who has her assets proudly displayed in the game she’s from. Numerous times you hear various characters reference her with things like “Shes so beautiful!” “I wish she would notice me!” “She’s got a rockin bod!” and yes even “She has huge breastibules” (ah borderlands. <3 )
A few times, some of the “bad guys” say things about her, calling her balloon tits or other gross names and lewd remarks. And the other men in the game call them out. Most notably, Torgue. “YOU SHOULD TREAT MOXXI WITH RESPECT. NOTHING IS MORE BADASS THAN TREATING A LADY WITH RESPECT.” You even get sent on a quest to PUNCH THE OFFENDER UNTIL HE EXPLODES. Because he disrespected Moxxi.
All of the good guys in the game, treat her with respect. Regardless of what she’s wearing.
So, if by your logic, I should be treated how I dress, why are you not treating me with respect? Why are you acting like the piece of shit 18 year old Fly Boy waiting to get annihilated by the Vault Hunter?
But all of that doesn’t even matter.
Because no one.
is ever “asking for” disgusting comments like that with who they cosplay or what they wear.
Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:
Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):
There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.
Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.
Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.
Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.
SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.
Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.
There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:
And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:
Currently waiting for a presser from Captain Johnson, who was seen tonight attempting to keep peace with no helmet/mask/gear.
Dear White America: Wilson had ZERO reason to murder Mike
Spread this like wildfire
There was never a justifiable reason to shoot Mike Brown in the first place.Even if he did commit a robbery there was no reason to murder Mike Brown. None.
Exactly. Cops are not judge, jury, and executioner. Even if Mike Brown had committed a crime, he had the right to due process.
And it’s rumored the officer is the mayor’s nephew and that’s why he hasn’t been charged yet.
