tbh i thought this was a really neat idea for a dystopia or something until i realized what was allegorical by seeing the picture and getting a connection there. i was just so blind that this could be as stupid as it was i took it literally or as a classism stance for a minute. this is so dehumanizing i didn’t realize they were comparing women to food, what the fuck
Not only are they comparing women to food, they’re basically saying women’s bodies are a luxury ITEM.
And that men are entitled to any woman’s body they desire.
It’s bad when even 4chan thinks you’re gross.
they think they are being “denied” something.
Not to mention food is a fucking necessity to live. Having access to women’s bodies is not
In case anyone’s forgotten, this was Isla Vista shooter Elliot Rodgers’ entire reasoning for his shooting spree: that he was being unfairly denied access to women’s bodies.
In addition to the excellent commentary above (women: autonomous people, not consumables! touching boobs: not vital to staying alive!), in the original fucker’s “thought experiment” (pro tip: any time anyone uses the phrase “let’s try a thought experiment” they’re about to be an asshole), people are waving their food around. Except the food is boobs. People have very little control over whether they get boobs and how much they get. If you have them, it is difficult to hide or remove them. Having breasts is not a “luxury item” that you’re “waving around” in people’s faces. They’re a body part, and they’re there. This is the same mentality that shames young girls with sexist dress codes, the same mentality that blames rape victims for what they were wearing, and the same mentality that excuses street harassment. It is rape culture.
so confused by this analogy, doesn’t this mean even the “food virgins” are well fed? which would mean the sex virgins in our world are getting sex on the regular?
oh, but it’s “tasteless, pleasureless” sex? is that supposed to represent masturbation? Man, if you can’t even enjoy masturbation you don’t deserve to have sex with another adult.Source: gaywerewolflady

My reply: Those who aren’t feminists are misogynists and therefore they do have a label. However the word “feminist” seems to stir up far more hatred than “misogynist”, so give me your thoughts on that one.
He did not reply. I think he was expecting me to give him a cookie or something.
"Is that such radical thinking it should require a label?" Five fucking thousand years of human history says yes. And the very fact that the word "feminist" caused this man to do backflips says a lot about how far we are from accepting equal rights as "the normal"Source: okcreepsters

“Hatred" is an independent PC game by a group of Polish developers. In order to set it apart for promotional reasons, the developers have stated that they are committed to "pure gameplay", claiming that mass murder of civilians by an angry disenfranchised man is more "honest" or somehow free from political narrative, unlike other modern games.Hatred is not apolitical. In fact, the opposite is true - it’s a game about glorifying violent racism and white supremacy. Consider the game’s trailer, which conspicuously lingers on the white protagonist brutally murdering and mutilating people of color.In this photo of the development team, we can see that one of the developers wears a shirt depicting a historical anti-communist military group (Żołnierze wyklęci, historically associated with the Freikorps) that is lionised by right wing extremists.Another team member, ‘CEO and Animator’ Jarosław Zieliński, has prominently displayed an endorsement on his public Facebook page of the Polska Liga Obrony: an established nationalist Islamophobic, anti-immigration hate group.Despite using registered marks held by the ESRB and Epic’s Unreal Engine attempting to legitimize their project, there is no working relationship between the studio and either organization. In a statement provided to Gamespot, Epic Games stated that “the video is using the trademarked Unreal Engine 4 logo without permission from Epic, and we’ve asked for the removal of our logo from all marketing associated with this product.”Journalists and commentators alike do the industry a disservice by obfuscating the developer’s racially charged political hate in deference to the otherwise well-trod issue of violence in games. In doing so, they are playing into the exact type of controversy its developers have sought to capitalize on.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons
gotta love the gamergaters who have been “analyzing” the threatening e-mail in order to find out “who really wrote it” (WARNING: threats, graphic language, utter stupidity, complete lack of empathy)

I love the Castlevania series. I love the classic horror themes, the action, the exploration, the presentation—I love almost everything about it. With Halloween drawing close, it seems like a good time to shine a spotlight on the franchise, and I’m pleased to see I’m not the only one who thinks…
Castlevania music is just about the best music video games has to offer, which makes these awkward tunes all the more unpleasant to hear.
If you’ve ever wanted to imagine what an English rap song made for a Japanese audience sounds like, here are THREE. I’m guessing they handed the MC whatever lyrics Konami’s staff cooked up and he did what he could to turn it into…”music”
Yes, this is worse than “I Am The Wind.”Source: christhehoff
