With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.


34 years later and this is STILL relevant

I used to watch Siskel and Ebert all the time. They had a lot to do with teaching me to appreciate movies - as well as shaping my stance on ethical issues like this.

It saddens me all this time has passed and not much has changed. But I am also thankful they got through to me at such a young age. To me, it’s proof that talking about important issues is worth it. Some of us will eventually get it.

Ultimate proof that cats are smart !!! more smart cats«

Cat intelligence is actually a pretty interesting topic in that the majority of studies on the subject basically have to end in the conclusion "we just don’t know" because cats are among the most uncooperative research subjects of all time. We know a great deal of cat sight, having used cats as the archetype for a vision-focused vertebrate/mammal, but we still know very little about what really goes on inside the cat mind.

I think that alone is proof cats are goddamn smart; they don’t have time for our bullshit.

"who cares about representation in video games, video games are meant for escapism"

how exactly is it escapism to switch from a world where white cis men are in charge to…….. a world where white cis men are in charge

also what does that say about you when you want to “escape” to a world completely devoid of poc and women
