Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”

Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.

90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums

Are we not going to mention Jesus?

Nailed it.

*wheeze* 

Oh my god.

Nailed it.

misandry-mermaid:

Yep, the whole thing about including Allies in the LGBTQIA+ acronym or treating allies as being AS important to the LGBTQIA+ movement as actual members of that community is ridiculous.

If you need any more evidence of why self-ID’d male feminists should not be trusted, look up Hugo Schwyzer.

Said the stupid straight bitch who just shoehorned her opinion right into LGBT issues.


rockinraritysally said: My aunt posted this Buzzfeed quiz on Facebook and I think it's the best that Buzzfeed has ever posted. It's a quiz testing to see whether or not you are privileged, and it takes a very balanced approach to figuring out whether or not you are. My aunt scored 42 out of 100, and I scored 45 out of 100. Both of us got the "Not Privileged" result. By the way, we're both white and from SE Michigan. You can find the quiz on Buzzfeed's website and search "privileged."

is this the quiz you are talking about http://www.buzzfeed.com/regajha/how-privileged-are-you

I’m so tired of feeling gross and worthless and instead of blaming others for it I’m going to stop doing the things that contribute to that feeling

Also: Requiring that trainer battles cannot be initiated without explicit consent, and giving the option to concede the battle rather than white out

Letting all wild Pokemon have access to moves and/or items that enable them to flee battles, and severely limiting moves/items/abilities that trap…

None of this sounds like a fun addition to a children’s game set up in a fantasy universe.
This sounds like a headache and a half- even for adults.
In fact, most of these sound pretty fucking game breaking, especially for a game centered around strategizing and leveling up. (Protip: you can’t get much done in a game where progression is centered around battle strategy if none of your Pokemon listen to you and trainers randomly quit battles half way through)

But whatever I guess let’s ruin games in the name of “social justice”

Have you heard of things like nuzlockes and Twitch Plays Pokemon

The fact is that the same kids who started playing Pokemon in the 90s are grown up and still love the games and want more of a challenge.  I’m not saying that such rules would be in all the games or even should be (except maybe the ones about player consent to trainer battles).  I’m saying it would make cool hacks and fanworks for people who want a strategic and philosophical challenge.

Of course, if an adult like you can’t stand playing games that are slightly more difficult than the ones you played in grade school and work on much more actual life skills, who am I to judge?

I don’t mind games that are difficult, but I’d like for those games to actually work and function normally, thanks.

Requiring that trainer battles cannot be initiated without explicit consent, and giving the option to concede the battle rather than white out

Wow the first one and we’re already in to game breaking shit okay. Gym leader doesn’t want to lose? CONCEDE! Trainer blocking your path but doesn’t want to admit defeat? CONCEDE! Trying to level up that one pokemon so you can actually progress? NOPE. CONCEDE. Prepare for like 50% of your battles to end in trainers conceding.

Letting all wild Pokemon have access to moves and/or items that enable them to flee battles, and severely limiting moves/items/abilities that trap foes

As if Abra, the legendary dogs, and latios/latias were not frustrating enough? Yes, lets take the one rage inducing quality that made these pokemon really hard to get and kinda special, and apply it to EVERY POKEMON! Because spending half an hour just trying to get a pokemon that doesn’t flee instantly is fun

Limiting the number of wild Pokemon a trainer can battle to fainting in a given time period

Yes, lets apply time limits that are “free to play” iphone app level to a game dependent on progression through defeating opponents. Sorry kid, you have to wait another 3 hours to level your pichu, for some reason someone decided that the rights of non existent bits of data were more important than making their game playable or fun

Allowing Pokemon to disobey commands that place them in severe danger, without repercussions (i.e. a pure water type being sent out against a grass or electric type), no matter the amount of badges the trainer has

"Gee I hope my Charizard actually does something this time around he’s disobeyed me 5 times in a row and is down to like 5 health points"

Allowing Pokemon to leave the trainer at any time for any reason, without repercussions, unless under a formal contract that specifically states otherwise, and such contracts being extremely tightly regulated

Hey, remember that shiny eevee you just caught? Man. Sure sucks you didn’t sign a contract with an imaginary dog thing because it just ran off. No, you can’t do anything about it. Sorry.

Allowing Pokemon to freely choose when and, when applicable, into what to evolve, though trainers may still suggest evolution via locational leveling up or items

So change essentially nothing for multi evolutional lines like eevee and raltz except make it so that theres a chance that no matter what you do they’ll still end up being the exact pokemon you didn’t need

Allowing Pokemon to have non-heterosexual relationships (including the effectiveness of the move Attract) and to choose whether or not to breed individually instead of having this solely determined by egg group

Good luck getting that baby pokemon you always wanted or that shiny you’ve been dreaming of because the rights of PIXELATED BITS OF DATA are more important than basic mechanics in this game

Changing the language of Pokemon use by trainers to avoid terms of ownership and utilize terms of employment, and limiting how many Pokemon trainers can employ, instituting mandatory minimum wages and benefits, and requiring trainers to provide minimum numbers of hours for Pokemon employed by them

They’re imaginary monsters. They don’t need money. I can’t even. Like they are literally the equivalent of animals thats like giving your cat a paycheck I’m DONE

Mandatory education for trainers to promote responsible employer behavior

DONE

Pokemon getting access to education and being allowed to team up with/employ other Pokemon and challenge the league system to its highest levels

We’ve just crossed the ultimate line of sense making here like I could maybe understand a few of the previous ideas, they would need a lot of tweaking and trouble shooting and testing and so on and so forth but THIS, THIS? These are imaginary little monsters, pixelated bits of data, and even in the pokemon universe, the equivalent of irl animals. Thats like sending your bird to school. Stop trying to equate pokemon to people, they’re not people, they’ve never been people, they are, and have always been, essentially animals.

Special protections for shiny and legendary Pokemon to prevent abduction, mutilation (you think no one poaches shiny slowpoke tails?), forced labor, and reproductive coercion

No, no one poaches shiny slowpoke tails, because its a game.

Of course, all this makes life a million times harder for the player character.  However, the way the gameplay is designed, designed as an ultimately un-loseable player-focused game, is the literal definition of a structural system of oppression designed to benefit a small privileged class.  Structures of oppression are designed to make the privileged class(es) see sentient beings of unprivileged classes as objects or animals who have no right of consent and can be freely used or abused.  While I love the Pokemon games, it is important to realize that if a system like that were in place in the real world to the full extent that it is in the games, it would be a dystopia worse than the Hunger Games.  A more equitable game structure as presented in this and my earlier post would be very, very hard for the player character to “win,” but would be much more like a better version of real life for much of the world.  And it could potentially have such interesting things as gym leaders and champions who are Pokemon, and expedited knowledge of Pokemon because Pokemon are researching themselves, better heal items, movesets, and battle techniques, more diverse evolutions, and much more interesting gameplay.

The game is winnable, we need to break it. Social justice. Yeah.

By telling me that I can’t tell you how to live my life, you are , in fact, telling me how to live my life.

Apparently I’m only allowed to look at one point of view on the whole women firefighter thing. I can’t possibly be for it and then also recognize the risk involved oh no that would be ridiculous

How dare I look at the big picture and analyze multiple factors of risk

I feel like everyone just saw “women shouldn’t be firefighters” and freaked the fuck out
Like as a woman, I know plenty of women who could not carry an unconscious body out of a fire to save their lives- even off their period.
If you’re too weak to do a job that puts lives at risk 24/7, you’re too weak. End of story.
That’s what draum was getting at. Or at least that’s what I got from his post after re reading.
