smashsurvey:

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

Four times in the last five minutes, I have seen the phrase, “It’s not rape if you don’t say no.”

I want to remind all of my followers, and everyone in general, that rape is not defined as the presence of the word no but by the absence of the word yes.

Consent is a freely given, enthusiastic YES.
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

This is dumb as fuck. YEAH OHKAY im just going to be all like “hey do you want to have sex with me?” Lets see how well that fucking goes. 

…..Are….Are you fucking serious? You’d rather rape someone than feel uncomfortable for 1.4 seconds while you ask for consent?

when you google ‘benefits of feminism’ at least the first two pages are full of links to articles about why feminism is good for men and boys …

Well considering feminism is supposed to support the equality of females AND males…
I see no problem.

NO

what do you mean, ‘no’? there’s no point in being a feminist if you’re just going to put men down. feminism is about equal treatment of ALL sexes. not preferential treatment of one sex at the expense of others.

ACTUALLY NO MAYBE FOR ONCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE I DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT MEN I DON’T WANT THEIR FEELINGS TO RUN MY FUCKING LIFE FEMINISM IS FOR ANYONE WHO IDENTIFIES AS A WOMAN AND I’M HERE FOR THOSE PEOPLE

OK LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW WHITE WOMEN WILL MAKE MORE MONEY THAN WOMEN OF COLOR LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW RACE AND CLASSISM IN AMERICA AND HOW SOME WOMEN HOLD MORE PRIVILEGE THAN OTHER WOMEN LET’S FUCKING TALK ABOUT TRANS WOMEN DYING LET’S FUCKING TALK ABOUT RAPE AND THE MURDER OF WOMEN THE STERILIZATION OF WOMEN OF COLOR THAT STILL HAPPENS TO THIS VERY DAY YOU WANT ‘MEN AND WOMEN’ TO BE EQUAL HOW ABOUT WE FIGHT FOR WOMEN WHO ARE FUCKED OVER IN OUR SOCIETY BEFORE WE WORRY ABOUT THE FEELINGS OF WHITE MEN
LET’S FUCKING TALK ABOUT HOW I DON’T WANT TO BE EQUAL TO MY OPPRESSORS LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW I EXPECT MORE FROM MEN I EXPECT THEM NOT TO ACT LIKE FUCKING ANIMALS WHEN THEY SEE A WOMAN’S BODY PART LET’S TALK ABOUT RISING ABOVE MISOGYNY AND GENDER ROLES AND THEN MAYBE /MAYBE/ THEN I WILL WORRY ABOUT HOW LIL DICK JOHNNY FEELS ABOUT THE SITUATION
