No offense to all the girls that follow this blog though.  I am a girl.. and coming across another girl in the game with an entitlement complex is very annoying and insulting. 

Unpopular opinion probably, but I really don’t give 2 fucks about this kinda stuff. I wanna kill shit and get loot, if someone expects ‘special treatment’ for their gender or any other reason, whatever, not my problem or anything to concern myself with it.

I’ve honestly never met a girl on wow who expected special treatment because they were a girl.

Me neither. And if any are out there, guess what, that sort of thing is the product of our misogynistic culture that makes it seem like being a woman and playing video games are things that just don’t happen, so uh.
I wish that there wasn’t this need to pit women against each other in pretty much everything ever.

I’ve literally never seen another girl get special treatment on WoW, let alone myself. In fact, I’ve been harassed in dungeons and raids and had so many rape jokes/kitchen jokes/etc etc thrown at me. (Keep in mind I’m 15)
I’ve been harassed on rp servers, and I’ve been asked questions about my sexual activity by creepy adult men. 

the only sort of special treatment that I have seen happen or had happen to me is that guy players out of their own volition decide to “dote” on girl players either because they assume “oh they’re a girl so they must not know what they’re doing” or even better, for ulterior motives that come to light after said girl “friendzones” them lmao

i played WoW for years and years and years and the only “entitlement complex” i ever came across in all my experience raiding was asshole guy players who would whine to the RL endlessly if he didn’t win the roll till someone gave him shit to shut him the fuck up.Never saw a female or nb player get any special treatment (besides constant harassment) unless it was some sad-faced weasel trying to push gold and armor onto a girl in some misguided attempt at flirting, making literally everyone else uncomfortable.lbr here that whole “girls get treated better in MMOs” is a fucking myth perpetuated by the same misogynistic assholes who kick girls out of guilds/raid teams as soon as they talk on vent.

Literally the only times I’ve EVER seen ~a girl~ ask for special treatment is when MALE PLAYERS roll busty female characters and pretend to be ~hapless women teehee~ so they can get free shit from other male players… think about that.
The idea that female players ask for special treatment in games, particularly MMOs, is so prevalent but there’s almost no basis for it.  It’s something threatened male players conjure up to explain why A GIRL is as good OR BETTER than them at [GAME].
It’s easier to think “she only has those achievements/ gear/ mounts because she sent nudes or sucked e-dick or her bf played her char for her” than to imagine she got all those things on her own merit.
"If she did ALL those things herself then that means I, Man Dudebro, am not as good at [GAME] as I thought!?  IMPOSSIBLE!!!"
I know so many female players who are better at the game than most of the dudes I know… yet the girls are the ones held up to FAR higher standards for the exact same roles/content and are CONSTANTLY under fire to PROVE THEMSELVES, as if doing do will earn them enough respect to stop getting harassed (it doesn’t).  
Male players fuck up ohh that sucks bro but if a girl makes the exact same mistake OHH U SHOULDA STAYED IN TEH KITCHEN LOL WHOSE DICK DID U SUCK LOLL
This all ties in with the myth, “women don’t play WoW/games!”  They do, they always have, but damn it’s a different world for them.

"If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”"

Well this is fucking surreal

"Only 5 percent of women have the type of body we see on billboards and in TV commercials. The "Expose" project wants you to see the remaining 95 percent.” (Huffington Post Article)

Tell me something.

When was the last time you opened up your browser and saw a beautiful image of a body shape that looked just like yours?

When was the last time you saw an image of skin markings that looked just like yours?

When was the last time you saw an image of breasts that looked just like yours? An ass that looked just like yours? Scars that looked just like yours? A belly that looked just like yours?

How many baby boomers does it take to screw in a light bulb?

None. They make a millennial do it for nothing and tell them that they’re lucky for the opportunity.

The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not trueA lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.- Laverne Cox

*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.

WHITE SAVIOR! WHITE SAVIOR! bow down……*side eye*

I have mixed feelings about commentary like this because yes I agree that it’s problematic for white people to receive more credit and praise for things black people have been saying for years. But I also think it is necessary to have white figures with primarily white audiences to critique whiteness and white supremacy. Because whenever white people ask what they can do to help, I say, educate your people.

^^

plus he reaches millions whereas twitter/tumblr people reach only a few thousand

this is true and i don’t think Jon has ever tried to claim that what he is sayin are his own ideas unlike Tim Wise

Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard! These racist authorities need to be exposed!

For fuck sake not here too. The fuck is wrong with people?
