“Why should we care about women’s representation in video games?”
“Nobody is going to want a female protagonist!”
“Their target audience isn’t big enough to warrant any games!”
“Women aren’t as capable as men, they don’t belong in video games!”
“If more women started playing video games, maybe then they’d have a say in the matter!”

dumb cunt. in that order.
watch her spirit leave her body.
watch her fall into herself.
take pride in your aim. your precision.
grab a plate.
eat what remains of her.

who are not yours everyday.” —i am speaking to men and women, nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
things that are harder than they should be
- telling your friends how much you like them
- telling your crushes how much you like them
- evening out your eyeliner
Alright you bitch shits, i was going to draw a picture about this issue, but seeing as i’m not going to waste my time on it, i’ll just tell it to you.
this is the yin yang symbol, as you should know if you have spent any time on the grunge side of tumblr. that isn’t the problem,
you see the Yin means Negative, Cold, Evil, the Dark Side of Things, and anything FEMALE.
the Yang means Positive, Warm, Good, the Light Side of Things, and anything MALE.
this is because the Chinese culture is still mainly Confucianism with beliefs, meaning they believe men will have a higher success rate than women.
so next time your grunge ass reblogs the yin yang symbol you should keep in mind that it is basically bashing women
this is grossly misconstruing the idea of yin and yang from a typical western point of view
nothing about this understanding of femininity and masculinity in confucian culture is accurate
yin and yang have literally nothing to do with “good” or “evil” but about complementary ideas. dark is a complement to light. cold is a complement to warmth. female is a complement to male. the whole concept is that they need each other to be complete. they are opposite but equal. if you think yin and yang is about good and evil then you need to stfu and read a book tbqh.
plz stop using our cultural symbols to further your western ideas of feminism
(p.s. maybe you shouldn’t use misogynist slurs in a post about ~bashing women~ tho)
For most of America, Psy is a funny name, a funny face, and a funny personality. He doesn’t sing in English and most people just don’t get it leaving most of them to not take him seriously. It’s easy to strip the significance behind “Gangnam Style” down if you don’t know what it means and solely find entertainment in the Asian guy shaking his hips. But what most people don’t realize is that Psy doesn’t take himself seriously. He’s a satirist and political dissident. “Gangnam Style” was a commentary, not just a fun pop tune with a silly dance.
Gangnam is Seoul’s wealthiest and flashiest neighborhood. For South Koreans, Gangnam represents the ideal life of excess and consumerism. Psy’s character in the video is a wannabe Gangnamite. He dreams he’s living the flashy, excessive lifestyle while he’s really just like everyone else, swimming in a public pool and riding the subway. But never in the video does it seem that Psy’s character is unhappy. He’s content to play in a children’s playground and meet the girl of his dreams in the subway. “Gangnam Style” is much more that we have made it, but that’s not surprising considering Psy’s background and how little we know about it.
In America, it seems like “Gangnam Style” was Psy’s big break when in fact the song had been released on his sixth studio album and his music career hadn’t been about making flashy and catchy songs. He believes music is the key to overcoming the intolerance embedded in his country’s political systems. Throughout his career, his songs have been banned for inappropriate content and have been surrounded by controversy, not to mention the fact that he fought his mandatory military draft.
Psy is a voice for his people. He’s fighting the oppression and intolerance he sees in his culture through his music. And by ignoring his worth and his value, we’re reducing the culture of South Korea into a short man with funny pants doing a ridiculous dance.” —Opinion: American media chooses to undervalue artists like Psy from “Gangnam Style” (via indiancrownaffair)
