his life was totally in danger.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

At least the dude was fired.

When is it sexist? - A Handy Chart

My favorite moment when playing FFXIV for the first time was seeing the men in the same ridiculous subligars as the women.

In order:

World of Warcraft

Dark Souls

Final Fantasy XIV

I’m happy to see that Smash crossed into the realm of not sexist today

I still find Samus’ firing position ridiculous. I wonder if anyone working on this game has actually tried adopting that pose. Not only does it facilitate inaccuracy, it’s straight-up awkard and painful to hold. It looks like her shoulder is dislocated too.

Here’s a tip for artists: If you’re drawing from imagination, try adopting the poses that you create. It’ll cut down on absurd stuff like that, or the boobs-and-butt shots.

"…the reason isn’t that there is more of a threat than there used to be. It’s that people are being systematically misinformed—by reporting like Winkler’s—about the risks they actually face. Telling poor minorities that hostilities with police are really partly their fault—and that if they would just give up their guns, everything would be okay—is not just absurd, it’s actively harmful."
