gutsyfrog asked: FUCK. did you see @samfbiddle's tweets about how "gamergate is proof that we should bring bullying back and beat up and shame nerds into submission"? that dude works for gawker media, the company that owns kotaku and jezebel. he got many favorites and retweets. these are the people the mainstream media is siding with and that will never lose their jobs for being human scum. these are the people in control of the narrative. I'm fucking livid.
Oh, dude, I have. Got screencaps of all the other journalists and shit who favorited and retweeted it, too. It was fucking disgusting and he just kept making it worse and worse with him and the Editor-in-Chief at Gawker moving onto making fun of Autistic teens/kids and shit.
But then today they both go “WE WERE ONLY JOKING, IT WAS JUST MEANT AS HUMOR, WHY ARE YOU TAKING IT SERIOUSLY”
And then the editor at Jezebel with her “I’ll pay 10,000 dollars for a picture of a Gamergate participant we’d fuck” and another one of them responding with “How much for a photo of a female Gamergate participant who isn’t ugly, fat and mentally unstable?”
All of this on the fucking day for Anti-Bullying Awareness
Though god fucking damn do I really wish that Biddle ends up accepting that one Attorney’s challenge to box. Did you see that?
Disclaimer: I don’t consider myself a “gamergater”; not because they’re terrorists or whatever the shit but because I’m seeing too much poor organization and naivety for me to just jump in and say “GO GAMERGATE GO”. THAT SAID.
This man works for Gawker Media. The same Gawker that owns Kotaku and Jezebel. None of these people will receive any amount of punishment for this garbage. They won’t lose their jobs and there will be no media coverage, because the media is on their side.
When I was younger, I wanted to believe left-wingers couldn’t be as scummy as this. That if people who identify as ‘progressives’ got more control of the news, things would get better. Instead, all I got out of this was an important lesson: if a special interest group is given significant power by the news media, they WILL manipulate the narrative. That power will always be abused, and it will be abused in repulsive ways.
Sam Biddle’s half-hearted apology (after all the bullshit you talked about, including other journalists joining in and agreeing with him) doesn’t matter. He’s not the only e-celeb who’s publicly justified bullying:
We’ve seen what lies behind their veneer of progressiveness, so what’s the point in pretending otherwise? These people are not just bullies, they are also the Jack Thompsons of today; the “Doom a murder simulator” doomsayers and the “Pokemon is Satanic brainwashing” fundies of the 2010s.
No one but a tiny minority of redpill crazies would shit blood at the idea of a more woman-friendly video game industry; the issue here is, these people do not simply want a more varied industry and an open-minded discussion that could facilitate such a change. They want to point fingers, speak for entire genders and races and be the morality police.
If they act this way over something as silly as fucking video games, just imagine how they tackle more serious issues (and certainly, I do have examples of similarly slanted or outright consciously untrue coverage regarding matters of life and death, not just popular entertainment).
The idea of shit like this becoming the default for ‘progressive journalists’ is fucking terrifying to me. This garbage not represent the views and matters of the people in the slightest and if it keeps going in this direction, America will start moving towards the far-right and nationalism just to get away from this stuff. It’s not a stretch, as it’s basically what’s happening to Sweden now if a Swedish friend of mine is to be believed.
I don’t agree with “keep politics out of nerd media” but I can definitely understand it hugely. It’s certainly depressing to see one of my only remaining corners of escapism get overrun with this stuff. I understand why some people just want to shut it all off.
nothing to add but
man fuck moviebob
are you fuckin kidding me

Anonymous asked: Hi Jess! Sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you could give me some tips on art? I normally look off of references on both art-reference pages and peoples artwork (though I am not trying to copy their style, I'm just observing). Also, is it normal to be stressed everytime I fail at something? Usually after several attempts on drawing something and failing, I tend to sometimes jab myself with a pencil (mainly on the eraser side). Any tactics you use whenever you feel discouraged maybe?
HRM! If you want to get better at art, it depends on your style but my first recommendation would be to study up on line of action and squash-stretch; this is really kind of important for getting dynamic expressions and movements out of your characters, even if you’re working with a more realistic style, understanding how facial and physical characteristics move along with each other is important. Also anatomy!
If you’re stressing out, I honestly can only recommend that you take an IMMEDIATE break. Every single line you draw gets you closer to improvement, but forcing yourself to work at it to the point where you’re hurting yourself in frustration (please don’t do that! :( ) is only going to foster a negative mental link where drawing corresponds to pain and stress. Try to stay loose, do warm-up doodles before attempting something in particular - getting used to the medium you’re using and different brush/pencil strokes is just as important as getting used to the subject matter you want to draw. And be nice to yourself! The more you draw the less you’ll hate drawing, I promise!
Anonymous asked: do you have a favourite bastian/parker song?
Waste by Foster the People feels very much Bastian to PJ to me, like I’m not 100% on what the song is about to be honest but it feels like someone wanting to help someone through what appears to be a really tough time, really wants to understand and help them even if they maybe don’t understand what’s hurting them. It just makes me very happy to think of Bastian not knowing about all the shit PJ’s going through in canon rn but wanting to make him happy regardless :’3
