Visiting India for the first time in 1996, I saw my boy cousin use a Barbie-pink backpack we had brought from America. The sight was as foreign as cows wandering the streets, tails swatting the ubiquitous flies. My mother explained that pink for girls and blue for boys was an American obsession. In a small town where growing girls were expected to wear dresses or longer pants, no one gave a damn what color they were, although everyone had an unfortunate predilection for neon.
Luckily, I'd spent my childhood in blues and greys because the only person who bought my clothing didn't like pink herself. My clothes came from the boys' section. I got cars, Legos, K'nex. Not as many video games as I'd wanted. I had to play Mortal Kombat on the boys' consoles, thankful that the only other girl in our social group wasn't around too often. She liked dolls and, unlike the rest of us, cried to get her way. Nobody told her to man up.

Feminism in Comics and Gaming - What Would Happen?I’m genuinely curious. What exactly is it you fear would happen to gaming/comics/geek culture if feminism DID actually have it’s way and take everything over? I’m serious, I am curious as to what exactly about feminism or hell, even humanism, is so “scary” and what people seem to think will happen if they accept it.Feminism in Comics and Gaming - What Would Happen?1 week ago in Personal More Like This

Thomas Sowell Vs. Feminism and the Bogus StatsThomas Sowell Vs. Feminism and the Bogus Stats1 month ago in Settings More Like This
Thomas Sowell has been fighting against political correctness and bogus stats
for over 30 years... his insight and preference for actual FACTS make him one
of the first people to ever disprove the wage gap myth (as early as the 1970's).
Yet today, we still have politicians and society as a whole favoring not only the
"Welfare state" but also feminist propaganda (rape culture, misogynist gamers, ect).
Again and again, they use bogus stats and continue to reward failure.
**Professional victims (Anita/Zoe) / teen pregnacy / baby momas).
Feminists would have you believe facts, data and evidence are tools of misogyny
and of sexist old white men.
So in light of that, I share with you the above videos and hope you'll share them
with anyone who's truly looking to support equality.
To all the Feminists out there:

Male Abuse Victims Tell Their StoriesIn the link below, different men tell their stories about their experiences in abusive relationships (emotional, physical and sexual).Male Abuse Victims Tell Their Stories1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Every story is different but a few common themes show up.
Being forced or tricked into staying with their abuser.
Having their reputations destroyed by their abuser's lies.
Being afraid to call the police.
Being dragged out of their own homes when the police do show up.
Losing custody of their children (because an abusive woman is apparently still a better parent than a male)
Being sent to prison (along with losing all sorts of rights and their jobs)
Being forced to pay their abusers.
And all of this is happening in a society were ideas like Male Privilege, Schroedinger' Rapist, She Fears You, and #YesAllWomen have wormed their way into the cultural zietgiest.

Rules of Feminism1. Women MUST be treated exactly the same as men, even if they are weaker in some areasRules of Feminism1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
(i.e. HE GETS BETTER PAY BECAUSE HE CAN DO HIS JOB BETTER?! YOU FAVOR HIM BECAUSE HE'S A MAN)
2. If a woman wears slutty, seductive clothing, and makes advances, but doesn't want the sex, and is raped, it's the mans fault for not controlling himself.
3. All MEN ARE EVIL AND ABUSIVE AND WOMEN CAN NEVER TRUST THEM.
4. Women can never rely on men because they're all cheating bastards
5. Verbally abusing women is wrong, but when women abuse men, it's totally okay.
6. Women are so much more mentally strong than men
7. Women should be in charge because women have better organization skills
8. If women do things that men do/should, that automatically makes her a lesbian.
9. It's totally okay to slap around guys, but oh, no, we're porcelain, you can't hit a women.
10. If you don't open the door for a woman, you're not a gentleman and should be treated like a dog and verbally abused.

Don't ever help a feminist.A team of male college students has invented a nail polish that detects certain date rape drugs. And just like clockwork the feminists have come along to use this to rationalize their insane world view that all men are either rapists, potential rapists, or rape supporters.Don't ever help a feminist.3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Maya Dusenbery an Executive Director of the website Feministing, wrote an article claiming that protecting women from rapists is rape culture. My comments are in bold.
Thanks to four male college students from North Carolina State University, you may soon be able to buy some nail polish that detects date rape drugs to go with your anti-rape underwear. Throw in your rape whistle and pepper spray camera, and you might be able to delude yourself into believing you’re 100% safe from sexual violence.
None of those things ever claimed to be 100% effective against all forms of sexual violence. Women

I was digging through my correspondences recently and found out some very interesting feedback from some people. In the feedback, to my understanding, is that, whether or not my artwork is pro-feminist/supports feminism since it depicts Women Warriors in practical Armor which contrasted the objectification of Women in media, especially in Video Games as pointed by the website Feminist Frequency
To be fairly honest, I don't really know . The website itself came as a surprise for me, especially when it comes to the video games. Me and my sisters play video games, albeit very rarely nowadays. As far as I can remember, when we were young and played these game, we were more concerned on finishing the levels and defeating the boss. If there was one thing to complain about, that would be how hard the game was, not how sexist i

Rape Victim Forced to Pay Over $15,000Another story about male rape victim having to pay his rapist's bills. Why the rapist can't her her own bill's is anyone's guess, but it probably has something to do with the patriarchy that allegedly favors men so much.Rape Victim Forced to Pay Over $15,0003 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I really like how they try to justify this by saying that its for the sake of the child, because simple logic reveals that to be complete bullshit.
*Why doesn't the rapist pay her own bills? She didn't need his consent so why does she need his money?
*Why isn't the rapist in jail? 16 year old boys have been sent to jail (where they were likely beaten, stabbed and raped) for having consensual sex with a 14 year old. In this story, a 20-year old woman had sex with a 14-year old boy. Last time I checked, 6 years is more than 2 years.
*If rape victims are responsible for the children they didn't consent to having, does that mean women who were raped shouldn't be
Are Video Games SexistFeminists insist that all male gamers are sexist and that the gaming industry should no longer appeal to males because the majority of gamers are women. They know this because Christina Hoff Sommers, who hasn't played a game since Pacman in a bar, is counted as a gamer. There is a study that has broadened the term gamer to the point where occasionally playing Bejewled is put on the same level as competitive gaming.Are Video Games Sexist1 week ago in Personal More Like This

"Some of Noiva de Cordeiro's women are already married and have families, but their husbands - and any sons over 18 - are made to work away from home and only allowed to return at the weekends."
In short, the women literally demand that the men be little more than wage slaves.
'And there's always time to stop and gossip, try on each other's clothes and do each other's hair and nails.'
They claim their town is better off because they have so much free time to gossip while the wage slaves go out and fund their life styles.
SJW Invasion of Science FictionThe sci-fi/fantasy genre has always been an interesting place. It is a place where stories new and old weave tales that not only entertain but also teach us about ourselves as well as the world around us. It is a place of imagination where we can explore perspectives different from our own and view a portion of the universe in the eyes of another.SJW Invasion of Science Fiction1 week ago in Personal More Like This
But just out of sight is a battle raging within the writing community. Long gone are the times when authors could be judged on their work alone. Now it’s about more than ability. It’s about politics and political correctness.
The realm of fantasy that once existed without boundaries is quickly shrinking. It is now being claimed by narrow-minded social justice types who feel there is no room for people of different opinions and viewpoints. But it wasn’t always this way.
Writers in the not-so-distant past could have their personal beliefs and still be recognized for their achievements in the writing community. It is especially
