lmao the pope better watch his fucking back
It pains me to openly disrespect or belittle the work of any artist, for any reason, but god damn if this comic making the rounds isn’t one fat, steaming globule of trite, patronizing horseshit and I really need to vent my resentment of it all at once.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

Every time I see someone defend the monochrome casting of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit it’s just so obnoxious and irrational and, obviously, super racist.

In response to my Ms. Male Character video someone made this clever image illustrating what “female as default” might look like. Because we live in a strongly male-identified society the idea of Pac-Woman as the “unmarked” default and Mr. Pac-Woman as the deviation “marked” with masculinizing gender signifiers feels strange and downright absurd. While Pac-man and the deviation Ms. Pac-Man seems completely normal in our current cultural context.
