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?

Feminism - ConfusionI think there's been some confusion here. I've made a few blogs where i have mentioned feminists, portraying them as a bad thing.

I consider myself as a feminist. I want equal rights for BOTH genders. I recognize that both men and women are being oppressed in different ways.
For example; I've watched a couple videos where they have done some social experiments about domestic violence. People always seem to react FAST when it's a girl being hit or abused. But when the roles switch and it's the girl hitting and abusing the guy, no one seems to bat an eye. I've even seen people stand and laugh.
It's really important to remember that it goes both ways. There are many instances where men are being oppressed. I think there are more instances where women get oppressed but that does not make oppression of guys less wrong.
I really just felt like making this clear so that there's no
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.

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.1 month 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
Women of Historically Wrong Sketch and Feminism?So, did the tile caught your attention? Well, it caught mine as well and that's the reason why I'm writing this.Women of Historically Wrong Sketch and Feminism?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
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

For many people, these are the connotations associated with feminists. Why? Perhaps it’s because we live in a patriarchal society. Perhaps it’s because misogynistic terms and words have become acceptable things to call women. Perhaps it’s because people would rather ignore the problem and discriminate against the people trying to fight the problem than actually help out.
Maybe it’s just because so many members of society don’t understand; aren't educated – are simply not taught the values of benevolence and equality. And I think that’s sad.
Feminism is defined as “the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men” – not the superiority of women over men. Feminism fights for women’s rights to equality – because we will not sit down and allow ourselves to be thought of as having less basic rights as a human beca

I'VE GOT ENOUGH of attention whores who call themselves "feminists" and discuss OVER MY HEAD what should be "good“ for me ( as a woman) or what I should be "enraged“ of / about without even taking into concern what I WANT, WHAT I HAVE TO SAY or WHAT REALLY BOTHERS ME!
Today I witnessed another one of these derailed discussions which basically resulted in people arguing about what we should feel offended about.
They were talking about an online advertisement for Pizza that showed the photograph of a woman's face to promote their shop.
The problem to me was not so much the advertising campaign, but that those people where so busy with wanking about what awesome feminists they are, that most, if not all comments that were made by women, who actually wanted to talk about the initial subject, got ignored.
What is Feminism?So, at the end of the year for my freshman year of high school for history class, we were to do research on a modern issue. Once the sign up sheet got around to me, one of the only topics left was women's rights. So that's what I decided to do my report on. However, when I mentioned this to my friends at lunch later that day, one of my friends said, "Oh. You aren't one of those crazy feminist freaks, are you?" and, without really thinking about it, I replied, "Of course not."What is Feminism?1 week ago in Personal More Like This
However, this conversation got me thinking. I started to wonder; just what is feminism? As I did my research for my class, I found out what this word means, so I thought that I would take this time to erase some common misconceptions about this topic.
Feminism does not mean you hate men. Not all men are assholes, and I know this. You know what? Guys are great. Some of the best people I know are guys, including my dad and a lot of my friends. They have never made me feel like a lesser person because I am female, no
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 $15,0001 month 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
