Banned Grey Poupon ad is hilariously wrong [YouTube]
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN
WHY WAS THIS BANNED THIS IS BRILLIANT
They saw their chance and they fuckin took it.
ohhhhh myyyyy goooodddd
I’m actually crying right now. Something that seemed impossible for me might actually happen in the future. I just hope this isn’t repealed by the time I feel comfortable enough in my life to transition. I know this doesn’t seem important to most people but this just gave me another reason to keep moving forward with my life. 🙏
I HOPE THIS IS A THING FOR MY AMERICAN FRIENDS AHH!!!
this could very well prevent some people from committing suicide
one of the largest issues is that reassignment surgery is ridiculously expensive and since many transgender people are faced w the fact they may never be who they know they are it is a fast downward spiral toward worse depression and ultimately self harm or suicide
reassignment surgery should absolutely be covered by insurance - it’s bullshit how large insurance companies claim it as “cosmetic”
So one time my dad bought a skeleton for Halloween, and one day he decided to place it in the kitchen to scare me and it went too far…
Some snippy-ass anon was getting down on a friend of mine for daring to feel good about herself and then I got mad and drew a comic about my feelings.
If you would reblog this that would be GREAT!! because i don’t think enough people know or realize this because we’re taught to hate ourselves all our lives fuck
The other day someone told me I was very kind and I went “Oh well, that’s just how I am” in a joking way but immediately felt unsure about whether that came off as arrogant. I (and everyone else) really shouldn’t worry about this. Accepting compliments and complimenting yourself are no bad things.
This is good. This is important. Also what Mari said.
*goes back to telling people to be nice to themselves and like themselves and all that while being a hypocrite about how he thinks about himself*
"Bitch I’m fabulous"
But yeah, Feenie, stop bein’ a hypocrite. :U

Content warning: This post contains graphic language, slurs and triggering content
This article is heartbreaking. And true.
There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit.
There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.
NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.
Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article.
Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.
We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)
