When guys try to use the “men are ALSO objectified in comics because of their rippling muscles and skin-tight suits!” I wanna scream “IT’S NOT THE SAME THING!”
Those big burly men in comics are not designed with the female gaze in mind. They are self-image power fantasies designed to appeal to MEN. So what does a female equivalent look like? It looks something like this… (via Andrew Dobson’s Poster Equality Comics)

Tackle sexism and gender inequality in games by speaking up, panel says
One of the first questions addressed on the PAX East 2014 panel about gender inequality was whether it’s a hot-button issue these days because we’re just becoming more aware of it, or because it’s actually getting worse. Either way, the panelists agreed that it’s a problem, and essentially agreed on the best solution: Everyone has to speak up in order for the situation to get better.
"It was always just something you kind of accepted," said Susan Arendt (second from left above), managing editor for Joystiq, about sexism in the game industry and in games. But now, people are "more willing to call bullshit on that." Brianna Wu (above right), head of development at Giant Spacekat, believes we’ve hit a critical mass: Women are almost half of the gaming audience and they’re an increasing segment of the development industry, and avenues like Twitter make it much easier for people to get the word out about instances of sexism.

“The foolish man lies awake all night
and worries about things;
he’s tired out when morning comes
and everything’s just as bad as it was.”

The Essence Of Nature

hedendom:

"Do any modern day religionists ever stop to consider what living in harmony with nature actually means? It means survival of the fittest, death to the weak, live and let die, kill or be killed. Living in harmony with nature does not mean collecting crystals, chanting to the goddess and lighting candles to heal the earth. Nature isn’t all love, peace and baby animals. Nature is birth, sex, instincts, survival, predator and prey. It is fangs, flesh and fucking."

- Donna Black
