baddovah sent: i can't deny that jontron is a whiny piece of shit with really bad toxic "opinions" but i still find his videos funny, is that wrong of me? should i stop watching his videos because it gives him support or is it okay for me to enjoy his content while completely hating the person he really is?

dragondicks:

Jontron has a sponsorship so yes, when you watch his content you are directly supporting him. If you don’t feel comfortable supporting him then you should stop doing so.

There are tons of other people who make silly videos about videogames on youtube and there’s probably a good few of them who aren’t gross idk maybe people can respond to this post with nice alternative suggestions

Personally I quite like Retsupurae because while they have been less than perfect in the past, they’ve grown since then and moved on (and generally apologised for the worst of the past stuff) and I feel like they’ve directly improved as a result

I figured jons sponsership worked through ad revenue though. Isnt that kinda moot when you have adblock?

I don’t understand how one of the biggest running jokes about youtube is how awful and hateful the comments are but switching comments off is like a huge taboo.

Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation

this is actually embarassingly wrong, though. sure, she looks tacky but this is a purely white liberal construct we’re looking at here. generally speaking, people in contemporary japan aren’t going to see something like that as misappropriation, and it hardly makes sense to even try to look at it that way because harajuku is, you know, a shopping district that sells mass produced clothing. maybe this girl is doing something else noxious in the episode, but what’s presented here just isn’t that.

there is of course a line in the sand, and in this case in specific it’s basically between nicki minaj and gwen stefani. nicki was, and maybe still does, calling herself harajuku barbie because she’s drawn a lot of inspiration for her looks from the bright, colourful styles of the district. a district in a wealthy industrialized nation. there’s no real difference between that and calling herself rodeo drive barbie or camden square barbie. gwen stefani, you know, was paying asian women to follow her around like ornaments. that’s a problem.

i get kind of suspicious when people, especially in mainstream tv, overwhelmingly go after “weaboos” as soft targets because it seems like a smokescreen to avoid going after the actually deeply troublesome and normalized acts of commodifying and trivializing marginalized groups.

also, a teacher dragging a teenage girl that hard in front of her entire class is fucked up.

I saw this like seven times yesterday scrolling on my phone and wasn’t about to start on it from there - but yeah pretty much what you said. People are ready to leap on those they perceive as weeaboos but people forget or ignore that Harajuku (and anime) is for sale.

Love of my life Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is the official Ambassador of Kawaii, as in it is a real part of her fashion-fused-musical-career as ordained by the government to promote Japanese kawaii culture and Harajuku fashions to the rest of the world in an effort to bump international attention, tourism, and sales. There are without a doubt social movements/ideas particular to the culture embedded in the different areas of Japanese fashion and act as a response to the culture - but frankly, overall, a lot of Japanese fashion is fashion. It exists for an aesthetic; it exists for expression; it exists for influence and ultimately consumption; and today more than ever it exists for export.

Sitting around and pointing a finger at every Japanese fashion labeling it as deeply intrinsic and important and special and exclusive to the culture is harmful; by doing so you are denying a contemporary creative base the autonomy to evolve and speak for itself. “Japan is a land of tradition” yeah, okay, but it doesn’t live in a fucking vacuum trembling from fear of the peeking gaijin.

What is happening here is a young girl is dressed in a fashion she cannot identify, which can be a case of cultural appropriation when “plagiarizing and/or thieving” is the mode of operation. For example: Someone latching on to a visual they saw while watching a Japanese film/whatever then went on to claim the style as their own creation and started selling it without ever acknowledging their influences or affirming the creatives whose work they are leeching from. Which is of course a lot to assume of a middle schooler to be intentionally doing. 

And that is totally Cory laying the smack down on his own daughter in front of an entire class. Double messed up. 

Bolded for highlight because I know a lot of people won’t read it otherwise.

Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I cannot wait for men to cry about this

im sure every other reply will be THATS JUST BC THEYRE COUNTING BABY CASUAL GAMES LIKE DINER DASH AND BEJEWELED!! bc men never play those of course

so many gaming dudes seem to forget girls were always gaming right beside boys and ignore historical pictures of young girls right at the first arcades and always playing them, just like the boys were

this article makes me shed a tear tho. hell ya girls, keep loving them games

so, just in case y’all think that fat fetishization isn’t a big deal, or just in case you think that fatphobia doesn’t exist

fat fetishization of fat girls is often linked to sexism. this is proof of that. notice how i did nothing to to provoke this guy. he went on this tirade for close to a half hour while i said nothing. he just kept going.

"you get defensive"

"turn me on so I can fuck you"

"I’ll go on a rant about how I want to fuck you because you’re fat, but know that you’re also a piece of shit who’s going to die"

LIKE HOW IS THAT NOT THE DIRECT RESULT OF FETISHIZM? He admitting to want to have sex, but only because he thinks of fat women as lesser. That’s scary as fuck.

Nah brah she’s not the one who got defensive. Someone made you look in a mirror and it scared the shit out of you.

This guy really does show what people who fetishize fat people think of us. We are purely objects to them and disconnected from any sense of humanity or personhood.

Anonymous sent: this is probably very rude, but i've noticed that a lot of the people who are "SJWs" or very passionate about sj don't fit in society's standard of beauty or attractiveness. do you think there's a reason for this? are people who are considered less attractive more in tune with social injustice than attractive people?

feministroosterteeth:

That’s not something I’ve really observed? Like a lot of the friends I’ve met through feminism & social justice are very attractive, even by society’s standards? I don’t think more ‘conventionally ugly’ people are attracted to SJ by any means? 

Literally all the people I know into social justice are super attractive. Anons got some stereotype confirmation bias bruh
Like look at h0nex or slayboybunny as a couple of quick examples. Utterly gorgeous.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson nominated Stephen Hawking to do the Ice Bucket Challenge and he declined. And now a bunch of people who must not know who Stephen Hawking is are trying to give him shit for it oh god.

have they forgotten…that you have to donate MORE money … if you don’t do the challenge…

That and none of these people seem to realize that Stephen Hawking has ALS and has already been very generous to charity.
