Brand new episode of Tropes vs Women is online! Please heed the content warning on this video. It contains some especially triggering scenes of sexual violence.

I found this hard to watch. Even if you removed all of her commentary and just showed the clips from the games, it would be disturbing. 

I’ve tried reading some of the “rebuttals” of this video, but even if I wasn’t a crazy leftie liberal feminist whatever… it’s all nonsense. And I think they know it is too, because the most common response to this video is to attack the messenger. 

"This nagging ugly bitch just wants something to complain about like all social justice retards. The second you apologize or give them an inch they will simply criticize you more. "

That was the first reblog comment I saw in the notes. Using misogyny and slurs to try and de-legitimatize a video about misogyny is an interesting debate tactic.

It seems people are quite literally trying to kill the messenger. Attack her character. Make her look so bad that it undermines the message of the video.

It isn’t going to work. Something is clearly rotten in the state of gaming. It needs to be addressed.  It doesn’t matter if you like her or not… the truth is undeniable and people need to start accepting that.

She isn’t telling people they aren’t allowed to like their video games. She clearly states that at the beginning of all her videos. And what she is suggesting is not going to make games terrible and unfun. All that is desired is for women to be respected in gaming and perhaps a little more representation that isn’t two dimensional. That certainly doesn’t seem like it is worth threatening someone’s life to fight against. 


OH, and here are some quick process shots from that SP//dr comic I’m doing with Gerard.

I had to work over vacation this summer, and couldn’t bring my Cintiq. This is how it works when I do everything on paper. It gets messy, but using multiple colored pencils helps me keep all that information straight.

OH, and for those of you who’ve been asking… I go full-time on Necropolis two weeks from today. I cannot wait.

Mass graves filled with remains of immigrants discovered in Texas

Anthropologists uncovered a series of mass graves filled with the human remains of immigrants stuffed into shopping and garbage bags in a county-owned section of a cemetery in South Texas. Now, a local politician is calling for an inquiry.

The group of anthropology researchers is made of professors and students from the University of Indianapolis and Baylor University, who are working on the Reuniting Families project. The multi-year project seeks to identify the bodies of the hundreds of undocumented immigrants who died (usually from exposure in the 100-degree-plus heat) while crossing the Texas-Mexico border over the last few years. They resumed work two weeks ago, exhuming 52 plots in a Brooks County-owned section of the Sacred Heart Burial Park in Falfurrias.

In those plots, they found the remains of multiple people instead of just one.

Modern. Day. Holocaust. 

And what is the White House response to the exodus of children fleeing desperate and deadly conditions in Latin America caused in part by the “War on Drugs” and NAFTA?

To Deport Them Faster.

This is the DEMOCRAT response. This is liberal humanitarianism. This is your Progressive Left…actually where, exactly, is this Progressive Left?

I hope these extreme glimpses of truth begin to show how corny and ridiculous ideas like “stronger enforcement” and bigger fences and laser drones are, in the face of such human need and suffering.
