I’m sober now but not any less angry. ‘Made for each other’ Elizabeth??? REALLY???? Because it seems to me that Daisy is a character driven to extreme reactionary methods by the oppressive circumstances that Comstock creates. So no they fucking well are not made for each other - one is made BY the…
Excellent points, and the fact that it get’s rave reviews specifically for her character development is the cherry on the shit sunday.
Infinite is just another shooter, but they drop some lazy dark matter bs and give you a female companion to carry shit for you and all of a sudden:
Fuck dude thank you exactly. It is fun, yeah, but even the horrific ramifications of the racist as shit story aside, like why do any of the game mechanics even exist? Why do you get vigors when they are virtually useless? Why do you have a companion at all if her existence has little to no effect on how you play the game? Elizabeth does nothing but offer you opportunities to kill dudes in slightly more creative ways than you might otherwise kill dudes, and also sonetimes she throws health at you, making an already easy game easier. WHY
I’m sober now but not any less angry. ‘Made for each other’ Elizabeth??? REALLY???? Because it seems to me that Daisy is a character driven to extreme reactionary methods by the oppressive circumstances that Comstock creates. So no they fucking well are not made for each other - one is made BY the other, and oppressed =/= oppressor and what exact method of resistance would be better for /you/, White Protagonist??? How about you wish fulfil your privileged ass a reality where Sky Utah doesn’t exist in the first place god damnit??????! THE MORE I THINK THE MORE I MAD
Ive finally gotten around to playing bioshock infinite. Not done yet but close. The more i think about it though the more pissed off i get because its a pretty solid game (i mean the difficulty is non existant and the vigors are useless but that was true for the first game too so ok i expected it) and its fun to play but it is seriously some racist bullshit. Like what the fuck. Who thought it was a good idea to use racial tension as set dressing for a game about quantum mechanics? Who was like yeah lets make a game where we boldly ask the real hard hitting questions that white people who believe reverse racism exists are definitely not always asking on the internet - who are thw REAL victims of racism here???? Like realllyyy??? I just keep coming back to it and getting more and more pissed offfl. Like no elizabeth fuckin daisy and her fellow oppressed peoples are not the fuckibg same as their oppressors for using violence to tear down the system that is literally profiting off of their subjugation. Like i dont hear you saying shit about all the people booker mows down for the sake of your freedom. Jesus fucking christ. And i see you assholes including the irish all sly and shit to be like oh yeah look!! One time the irish were seen as a race and hated too!!!!! The oppression once felt by the irish is comparable to the oppression of poc and black people!!!!!!! death to white guilt 2014!!!!!!! Reverse racism!!!!!!!!!!! Holy fuck no no no nonon mo no no fuck this fucking game noNONINONONONONONNOONNL
The majestic and eagerly awaited PDF of the book Evil Women Anthology!
Gosh what a wild ride. There were many tears on my end involved such as paper stock not coming in on time, an illustrator not giving up the goods, LOSING MY WALLET… It was hard. BUT IT WAS FUN.
Once again a huge thank you to everyone involved. SURE it has a list of thankyous in the book but I really need to say it again. Thank you to those who submitted (even if you didnt get in! Your response still made me happy!), Thank you to those who reblogged the post around, thank you to my friends who kept me sane, thank you to the mods of FuckyeahCharacterDevelopment for signal boosting… THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
This was the first time ever (ever!) that I’ve done something of this magnitude… it was very daunting. I hope everything is okay in the pdf, I combed through it thrice to make sure people’s names are correct and that there are no errors… If you catch something, please send me an ask or a critique at firstname.lastname@example.org! The more I learn from my mistakes the better; because of this I’m really tempted to make another one! But if I do, I’ll give you a call ;D
Without further ado, here is the link to the pdf!
If it does not work TELL ME. It’s worked on both my computers at home so there shouldn’t be an issue!
and once more THANK YOU!
"bisexuals have straight passing privilege"
did you mean bi erasure ?
having people constantly assume im straight or gay based on who im dating or how I dress isn’t a privilege. it’s degrading and ignorant.
This Bridge Called My Back - Writings by Radical Women of Color
I don’t care what gender studies or queer theory class you’ve taken, you need to read this book, but be warned, it is a rare find and might expensive. It contains several essays by womanists discussing their experience, racism, poverty, how racism pervaded the feminist movement in the early 1980s and most importantly the individual experiences of asian pacific, black, american indian and latina/chicana women. This words you find in this book and the truths that will make your soul sick are imperrative for understanding the history of racism, feminism, systematic oppression and white privilege. These are stories that have, even today, been swept under the rug and out of sight.
You need to read this fucking book.
PDF version downloadable here.
I’ve read it, but adding this to the reading list anyway.
i’m reading this right now and it’s so so so important!!! read it!!!
Shout out to interracial, bisexual, pansexual, genderfluid, and otherwise “gray” or “mixed” people who get to deal with shit from pretty much every angle all while having your identity erased, ignored, or redefined for you whenever another group sees fit. I see you, love you, and want to make things better.
