Anonymous asked: In regards to JonTron, he said the n-word on Game Grumps as a joke when he was pretending to be a member of a message board (or maybe it was YouTube commenters, I can't remember) and basically making fun of how awful they generally are. I don't know if he said it any other context, but all the ones I know of were jokes. :/

plebcomics:

see when you put context behind it SUDDENLY it aint as bad as everyone says it is (sort of like how people still think im a nazi/nazi sympathizer when they dont actually read the entirety of that one post where they think im nazi sympathizing)

Actually anon, that was Arin you’re thinking off, he screamed nigger during the animal crossing episode, it was censored but yes it was part of a joke about forums. John said it several times during the sonic 06 play through but it too was censored and again it was part of a joke about punching a gingerbread house. People need to chill the fuck out and realize that jokes are jokes, there’s not a big conspiracy of racism or bigotry behind them. 

Everyone who is mad at Jontron needs to be less retarded

This November will be my first time ever not picking up a Wonder Woman series. Sure David Finch’s art is nice, but any creative team who says they’re going to portray Diana as strong but not a feminist has no clue who she is as a character. You’ll never convince me that Diana doesn’t stand for equality between men and women, or that she doesn’t believe that women deserve the same basic rights as men.

Feminism used to mean equality, but feminism today is not your mother’s feminism from the 70’s or your grandmother’s feminism of the 40’s. Wonder Woman lived through both of those eras and she was a feminist then, because that was back when it meant something. Third wave feminism in the United States has a stigma of bigotry and hubris attached to it so it is very obvious why the writers are trying to distance Diana from the new feminism, precisely because she stands for equality, and today’s feminists are not interested in equality. Nowhere are the writer’s saying that Diana doesn’t support equality. You don’t need to be a feminist to support equal rights for women and to suggest that somehow Diana now DOESNT support equal rights is ludicrous simply because the writer’s are choosing to steer clear of feminism as a concept. And it’s not as if Wonder Woman has been a feminist since the 1970’s, she’s actually been a human rights advocate ever since she was reintroduced to the D.C. universe so we can stop pretending like Wonder Woman has always been a super hardcore feminist, because it has not been the case for some time. Can you imagine a new Wonder Woman series where she identifies as a modern feminist, she spends all her time fighting against an imaginary patriarchy and rape culture? Complaining about objectification, reproductive rights and rape trials? No because those are not issues that are worthy of her as a character. Wonder Woman stops wars, saves starving children and inspires people to be better than the labels society throws at them. She is not a feminist anymore Wonder Woman moved beyond that years ago.  She as a fictional character inspires and brings people together far more than any real life feminists.She’s so much more than a feminist. She is an egalitarian on an Olympian level, a symbol of truth, hope and peace. People should be thrilled we are moving beyond Men Vs Women, but all they do is complain. I’m afraid that you understand neither Wonder Woman nor equality

Anonymous asked: Please please please do a little research about Zoe and what is going on in this situation. She is not being attacked. Nobody has attacked her. Nobody cares if she is a girl. People care about the journalists that published work about her, are sleeping with her. This isn't about feminism or anything like that. This is about journalistic integrity, and the lack thereof.

Oh for Fucks SAKE Anon.

First of all, her experience as a woman in the industry is valid.

Second, given the choice, I will ALWAYS believe the actual person’s version over a bunch of internet trolls, unless there is plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise. I linked an article here that ZOE QUINN wrote. On her Tumblr. And she says very clearly she is being attacked, her family and friends are being attacked.

Third, I did do some basic research and looky what I found:

http://kotaku.com/in-recent-days-ive-been-asked-several-times-about-a-pos-1624707346/all

http://www.dailydot.com/geek/zoe-quinn-depression-quest-gaming-sex-scandal/

What this amounts to is nothing! There is no proof she did anything other then date some asshole that decided to then to get back at her via the hate filled internet. Would this have happened if she hadn’t been a women? Doubtful.

As for journalistic integrity, well, thats quite naive of you to think that journalistic integrity still exists. Especially in the game industry. Very very very naive.

Sorry but she did do what she did.  People, including the girlfriends and wives of those she’s cheated on, have come forward.  The boyfriend has copious amounts of proof and has gone out of his way to disprove cries that he faked them.

Meanwhile, Zoe Quinn has no proof.  Not only does she lack proof, she has a history of lying.  Nevermind the proof the ex boyfriend has, it is confirmed she fabricated the Wizard-Chan harassment and that she faked a ‘hack attack’ against her Tumblr to garner sympathy.

On top of that it is confirmed that she has doxxed, slandered and harassed the Fine Young Capitalists and their charity event that was set up to introduce women to game development.

ON TOP OF THAT she tries to play the victim by claiming people are spreading nude photos of her, when the reality is that those nude photos are from a softcore porno shoot she willingly participated in and was paid money for.

Even on top of that she is confirmed to have cheated.  And she has been confirmed to say, on her twitter, that “Cheating is practically rape because you rob the people being cheated on of consent”.  So I guess that means, by her own definition, she has raped her boyfriend and her boss’ wife.

You’re taking the word of a liar over that of actual proof.    You say you always take a person’s word over trolls, which is awfully convenient when you paint her ex-boyfriend as a troll.  I guess you won’t be taking him at his word.  You hypocrite.

Lets be fucking honest here.  You don’t care about who said what.  You don’t care that the ex has documented proof or what he has to say.  You only care what Zoe Quinn has to say about it.

Because she’s a girl.  Which is insulting as shit because not only do plenty of girls despise her now for her actions, which we fucking should, she has actively reinforced the stereotype that girls in gaming have to sleep around to garner power and influence, instead of based on merit.  Even if you’re a feminist you should be fucking livid over this because a woman using her sex and vagina to climb to the top stands against everything you stand for.

Don’t try to act unbiased here.  You are extremely biased and willfully blinding yourself to any and all proof that says she’s guilty.

ricrodrigo asked: If I understand correctly the "spider pose" cover of Spider-Woman that everyone is complaining about is a variant cover and drawn by another artist, I forget their name. I loved Greg Land's art in Sojourn, which is a great comic series that was cut short, but it got bad as he got more popular and less time to "research" good poses to trace.

thespectacularspider-girl:

I know, I was just commenting on how Spider-Woman gets fucking Land.  Like, give us a better artist.  Does Frank Cho still work at Marvel?  Get Frank Cho on this book. 

THANK YOU! God Frank Cho is the best!
