watcha got there
lmao what possible reason could he have for holding a cigar?
this is truly some simpsons shit
yeah it’s a massive problem in popular media that dudes can just be naturally gruff and awesome and capable but when a woman is, 99% of the time she’s gotta have a backstory of how life “broke” her. Could you ever imagine characters like master chief or kratos having these backstories in their games where they’re delicate, whimpering young men who get sexually menaced by bad guys?? It’s lame as hell.
I’m not saying that showing a character’s vulnerable side is bad, but I am saying that it’s very nearly always female characters who get vulnerability forced upon them. HMM I wonder why
I want more competent powerful kickass female heroes and I want more gentle, emotional male heroes. I want that on my desk by yesterday.
together at last
this graphics driver is taking 10 actual minutes to download i haven’t felt this type of internet speed oppression since 2003 help
i always get shit when i talk about this but the reason i dont tag tw is bc
a) the term ‘trigger’ is meant to refer 2 those with PTSD those w severe anxiety and/or survivors of various forms of abuse it indicates an extreme reaction 2 certain stimulus like a panic attack/flashback/blackout caused by ur brain being unable to handle the resurgence of something horrific that happened to u
b) with that being said, i dont post triggering content. i havent talked about serious triggering shit on this blog for a long time in fact i think the last time i tagged smth was when i reblogged this youtube video about domestic abuse probs like 6 months ago nowadays i just reblog pretty pictures and make fun of anons
c) i get a thousand messages everyday from ppl suggesting i should tag shit like ‘spiders, ‘blood’, ‘feet’, ‘ghosts’, etc and it seriously pisses me off that u guys really believe ‘triggering’ equals ‘it makes me uncomfortable’ im not here to make tumblr a better place for u im not even getting paid man it’s ur responsibility to take care of yourself when it comes to these random ass ‘triggers’ if u cant see a gif of a ghost on ur dash you shouldn’t be online at all
d) in fact, ive come to the conclusion that demanding one of these lame ass trigger warnings it’s just a way 2 identify yourself as even more aware even more solicitous than the person who failed to ~adequately~ provide such a ridiculous warning. when i see ppl tagging ‘tw: spiders’ i cant help but think they are not demonstrating a sensitivity towards a topic but rather they just wanna be ‘seen’ doing so 2 demand that others ‘ought’ to do the same to validate one’s politics. this whole ’trigger’ business is less about protecting ppl from potentially re-traumatizing events and more 2 do with flagging up your right-on credentials even if it means silencing those who have actually gone through actual traumatizing events.
a set of tags i was never prepared for
