Screencaps of the responses to people’s comments on Tankhead’s non response, since I have a feeling these will disappear pretty soon…. (Full disclosure: I am the person who posted the XKCD comic.)
Reblogging for posterity, and also to add this from the artist’s deviantart (TWs for fat-shaming, sex-shaming, and obviously misogyny):
I’m at that level of furious where I can’t even word how angry I am. The level of hate, objectification, and dehumanization some fans- largely, but not entirely, male fans- have for fans who don’t fit their exacting standards of what a Real Fan should be isn’t just disgusting, it’s harmful.
This, and the story of the little girl scared at the My Little Pony con? They’re all connected.They’re all part of seeing cons as a space for white men and anyone else there as something trying to gain the approval of same.
I’m tempted to go buy starbucks next time I go to a con, just so that if I see anyone in this shirt I can throw it at them.
What a horrible little troll.
"So… is there a story behind that necklace?"

We spoke with Dragon Age: Inquisition producer Cameron Lee about some of the important points of the trailer and why they’re important.

Winter Soldier reminded me that I fucking love comics.
Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly, how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?
