The evolution of girl gamers

Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world. 
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades? 

It’s more like
A history of women and videogames throughout the years
1995 - Playing the vidya gaems
1996 - Playing the vidya gaees
1997 - Playing the vidya gaems
1998 - Playing the vidya gaems
1999 - Playing the vidya gaems
2000 - Playing the vidya gaems
2001 - Playing the vidya gaems
2002 - Playing the vidya gaems
2003 - Playing the vidya gaems
2004 - Playing the vidya gaems2005 - Playing the vidya gaems
2006 - WTF do you mean women don’t play video games? What the hell have I been doing my whole life?2007 - Oh gosh. Glados is awesome. Oh gosh, I get to play as Chell. Oh gosh, I love this game.
2008 - deviantART, mostly game fanart by mostly girls
2009 - Wait, there ACTUALLY is a misconception that only guys play video games? I thought that person from three years ago was just an idiot.
2010 - “I just got beat by a girl”? Really? I didn’t know thumb strength and reaction time was gender specific.
2011 - … You know, video games in general are almost always geared towards men. Maybe that’s why it’s a surprise to so many people that I have hobbies and interests.
2012 - Fuck sitting around and complaining about games being sexist. I need to get off my ass do something about this.

A history of me, a female, and videogames through the years 1985 hey playing games on the commodore 1986 hey MAKING games on the commodore … Add lots of years of playing . . Nowadays: huh lookit all those man tears :fires up Steam:

What on Earth was I doing for all of those years???? Did…. did I dream up all those Zelda games? Did I dream the Donkey Kong?

A woman was responsible for your precious video games. Literally. Look up Roberta Williams.

Anon asks:

Please make this anon. I’m not really sure but I think my ex-boyfriend was a bit emotionally abusive. He’d guilt me if I wanted to spend some time on my own. He’d message me while I was at work and freak out if I didn’t reply right away. He tried to coerce me into sex by constantly saying it was important for love, though he knew I didn’t want it. He dropped all his friends/hobbies so that I was the only thing in his life. It was suffocating. People say I’m overreacting by breaking up with him..

I think you were quite smart to break up with him.  He sounds like he was a definite abuser (and potential rapist), and left a lot of redflags and clues to the kind of person he is.  People who treat their partners the way he treated you almost always only get WORSE over time, not better.  Breaking up with him was a great move, and one that shows how much you care about yourself and realize that you deserve respect, space, and a mutually beneficial relationship.  I’d say you did the total right thing, and anyone who tells you that you “overreacted” or that this guy deserves another chance is probably someone to avoid as well, since abuse-apologism is NOT a quality you want in a friend.  Take care, darling!

Also, at the end of the day, you break up with someone because you no longer want to date them. People who tell you that breaking up with someone is “overreacting” are really telling you that doing what you want is an overreaction to knowing what you want.

Found myself in a similar situation. You feel bad for making this decision, I bet? You are possibly struggling to not go back to him due to how dependant he is on you/he is threatening to hurt himself/threatening you in some other emotional way..?It really fucking sucks, but you for sure did the right thing. Just stick to your guns, and try not to fall back into the pit. It can be so, so difficult to climb back out. You’ve made it this far, and I know you can make it all the way - far far away from the emotional abuse that you should never receive.

i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.

That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve read

This needs to get passed around more

Hey guys, 
I think this photo is so important. So many people think rabbits are just a fluffy animal for them to carry around like a teddy, and think they’re really cheap and easy to look after. Definitely some very important facts that everyone should know.
-batb

And dont bathe rabbits either, it can kill them of the stress it causes

I never knew stress could kill bunnies, passing this along

y’all listen up, with easter coming this is important.  

for real

As a bunny owner…yes!!
