because I figured that discussion is something that shouldn't be ran from and like to keep informed.
I'm always willing to learn, you know.
I identify as a swedish Rapper.
Therefore, you are not in the position to critizise my mad rhymes without being terribly oppressive.@1 year ago
what social justice is:
Archbishop Oscar Romero speaking out against human rights violations in his country of El Salvador during a civil war and advocating a policy of non-violence inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. and Ghandi, which got him ultimately assassinated
what social justice is not:
tattooing DIE CIS SCUM on yourself and telling people to check their privilege on tumblr

It’s virtually impossible to demonize people who meet the ideal image promoted by the media, medical industry, and practically every person out there. Thin people have privilege, they are automatically accepted just for being thin. Do you understand that fat people go through hell every day, and we’re supposed to feel sorry a thin girl was told to go eat a sandwich, while they’re handed practically everything to them just for being born with thin genes?
I’m about 242 pounds am nearly considered to be obese by most doctors and I honestly don’t have to go through shit. Even if people do, that doesn’t actually really improve anyone’s confidence if you feel as though its justified to condemn the body type thats “privileged.” Body issues and negative self esteem isn’t restricted to a particular body type.
I was overweight as a little child and bullied, I was underweight as a teenager and bullied. Also, there is no “thin gene”. Some people mentioned it in the reblogs already, but our digestive systems just deal with what we eat differently. However, in the end, our diets will take effect.
I’m a rather small guy, and thin. Though I dislike anecdotal evicence, well, my body-type, especially as a man, causes me a lot of problems. I’m just expected to be muscular (which would be more healthy, especially for my back, and which I’m working to achieve). I get laughed at by men and women alike, called gross, ugly and what have you. Gender expectations and stereotypes also get me a lot of “you aren’t a real man, are you?”, which I’d even get if I grew a beard as Karl Marx himself had it.
So I absolutely agree, body issues and negative self esteem aren’t restricted to a particular body type.
I personally are a firm believer that if we know we are unhealthy and want to change or better ourselves, we should do so, though, but still not shame people for how they are at the time given, while not perpetuating anything but health either.@1 year ago with 31 notes
The ARKH webcomic is abysmal, storytelling-wise, art-wise (seeing how it goes with a game) and.. everything-wise.
Isn’t the level-system incredibly classist as well?@1 year ago
People on here are complaining about Bayonetta’s proportions and poses the same way they are voicing (not always, but often) legitimate complaints with the poses and outfits some comic artists give their heroines aso., therefore disregarding the point of the game’s hypersexualization which is so over the top it becomes obvious that it’s all not to be taken seriously and absolutely intentional. Lollipop Chainsaw will obviously be a game in the same vein, yet there are complaints about the main character already, even by fans of older Grasshope Manufacture games who should be used to the over the top style that can’t and shouldn’t be taken seriously (see: Shadow of the Damned where the talking gun’s one big dick joke, various elements from the No more Heroes series, especially Silvia, the actual point of the first game being to get laid, how you recharge your lightsaber and the like).
This bothers me. Especially if people make assumptions from mainly promo-pictures or fanart, not even a trailer or demo. Best would be, however, to actually play those games.
Let’s take Bayonetta, for example (one of the few games I’ve actually beaten multiple times)- Her 3D model is 11 to 12 heads long, with her legs grotesquely elongated and her proportions therefore being utter nonsense. However, this is a stylistic choice to go with the over-the-top style of “sexy” that can be compared to Devil May Cry’s over-the-top “cool” style. It’s incredibly silly, really, and plays with a lot of clishees.
That the people complaining haven’t played the game, by the way, becomes obvious from them wondering about the guns on her shoes, or rather whether “those are really guns on her shoes”. Yes they are, except for when you equip a different secondary weapon, like the Durgas (which are the best anyway, Durga/Durga is an awesome combo), which makes for interesting gameplay in a genre in which it seems to have become a tradition to go over the top and insane.
