    My name is Arden, and after a few days of thinking I’ve decided that I’m going to ruin video games.

    I’m going to be doing everything in my power to destroy them completely. Walking simulators about feelings and emotions as far as the eye can see! Guns that shoot kisses! Lady characters that aren’t designed to cater to the whims of straight men! I’m hiding loving queer couples in every treasure chest instead of new armor. Every game will now be required to have at least one section that can be described as “too” personal. Fuck, if I’m feeling really bold, I might even throw some non-white characters into a game or two! I’ll magically replace every copy of every big-budget first person shooter with either Gone Home or Dear Esther and listen to the agitated shrieks of gamers.

    Non-men have been “ruining” games for a long time, of course, by virtue of existing and trying to make the medium and the spaces around it more inclusive and less festering garbage. I’m just owning up to it now, so there can be no doubt: I’m here to ruin games. The space gamers have carved out is broken and vile, and I’m done with it. This is not their hobby anymore, it is our art.

    I’m ruining video games! Join me! Make a personal story in Twine, nothing pisses gamers off more than interactive fiction sharing experiences that don’t cater to them! Make something in RPG Maker! You don’t even need to put combat in it! Make a dating sim or a visual novel in Ren’Py! Ruining games is easy, I know you can do it too!

The original is good, the comment is STUNNING. Love it!

So, basically, this is a symbolic representation of internalized misogyny:

    but have you considered:

    • strong females who don’t denounce femininity or being girly
    • strong females who are “like every other girl” bc why the hell not girls are rad
    • strong females who tear down the culture of girls hating on other girls
    • strong females who are proud to be feminists
    • strong females who support and acknowledge trans women
    • strong females who understand that being strong isn’t synonymous with manly or with “acting like a man”

schools in Ferguson area will remain close until next week and many students are falling behind

The strength of the Ferguson community in the face of the war zone the police have created is truly a thing of beauty.

    If you aren’t aware, cops love to destroy the phones of people who record them. 

    So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.

    It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.

  7. What is disaster pornography? Africans define it as the Western media’s habit of blacking out Africa’s stock markets, cell phones, heart surgeries, soaring literacy and increasing democratization, while gleefully parading its genocides, armed conflicts, child soldiers, foreign debts, hunger, disease and backwardness.

    TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

    I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

    Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

    Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.

    http://www.stlmag.com/news/Big-Bottles-of-Chilled-Beer-Are-Back-in-the-City/

    The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.

    Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.

    okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

    At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

    remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

I’m terrible.

I would get bingo so fast if I brought Ferguson up on my FB feed

They left off the one that I’ve been seeing the most, which is the ridiculous justifications for why he was targeted: smoking pot, robbing a store, trying to grab the officer’s gun, etc. All these things that were made up or speculated about on the news, that STILL don’t justify cold-blooded murder, but white people are using them as an excuse to why his killing doesn’t deserve justice or outrage. It’s the most common argument I’ve seen people use.

so tell me why I hit bingo 8 times


"brings up black on black crime" a white fan favorite!

    That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.

    Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

    Here’s a list of some twitter handles:

    Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):

    Residents/Legislature/Other:

    Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)

    Tumblr Accounts:

    I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

    if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

    You will find everything I’ve posted under tagged/ferguson, tagged/police-brutality or tagged/michael-brown

    updated and combined.
