me and the drama i’m not involved in
speaking of drama our favorite soap opera has some new parts and AMG its amazing
So around a year ago my now husband and got to meet George Takei and I took a very special book with me. The book is for my now year old sister and it is “The Star Trek Book of Opposites” and Mr. Takei has a page all to himself in it for “Cold”. He was kind enough to sign it for my sister on his page and now on the 25th Nichelle Nichols is having a signing at the same venue as Mr. Takei last year. Unfortunately I cannot take my sisters book to the signing and so I let my mom know about it so that Ms. Nichols can sign her page; but the trip itself might be too pricey for my mom to go and I’m not in a position to spot her. If anyone is interested in helping me further my sisters nerd cred please pm me for information.

WHY DO MEN NEED TO REBRAND EVERYTHING TOUCHED BY WOMEN?
SIT DOWN AND EAT YOUR YOGURT AND SALAD AND DO YOUR YOGA
FOLLOW UP YOUR INTENSE BROGA SESSION WITH SOME BROGURT AND A BRAH-LAD
The insecurity of straight men is nothing short of astounding. Men talk about their “man card” but really if you have to CHANGE THE NAME OF SOMETHING TO DO THE THING I think losing your “I am an adult and am engaging in a thing no matter what color/name it goes by, because I want to do the thing” card.
in india yoga is mostly practiced by men, you have mostly male yogis……yeah….
it got da booty and there is junk on this trunk….that is all
Being good to each other is so important, guys.
the good side is the conversation me and my husband had last night
So I just heard about this Zoe Quinn thing on the internet and her sabotage of a fundraiser to get more women into the gaming industry and raising money for charity saying it was oppressive. At first i thought this was stupid i thought the fund raiser was a great idea so i didn’t understand how it was oppressive to women. I still don’t. The of course there was muck slinging because this is the internet and thats just what happens. So this is the info i’ve gathered so far: She’s a programer and she made a game. her exboyfriend (possibly husband i’m not really sure) posted transcripts of her cheating on him and sleeping with reviewers to get good reviews on her game. There is also an interview of her where she openly brings up the subject of what she has done to get reviews. This is all before the fundraiser. So then the fundraiser starts and she speaks out against it and /v/ starts mad funding it because they don’t like her for the previous drama. Well then reddit gets involved and she has a friend who is a moderator who starts deleting negative comments about her and telling users to fuck off also there is a youtube video where she is talking about how great it is to have this friend to defend her. Meanwhile her outspokenness and the issues she is stirring up on /v/ who were the main supporters of the fundraiser, the fundraiser gets taken down. So more muck slinging and she’s the victim of harassment and all these terrible things. Publications and developers are lashing out in her defense stating that anyone of their employees or potential employees who join this fray against her will be fired or basically black listed.
Here is where I stand on this, as a woman who desperately wants to join the gaming industry as an artist. I see that she has become a figure of women in the industry, and not in a good way. She has gathered so much attention around her self she has become a face of women in the gaming industry and that is the weight I will have to carry when I look for a job. I will be compared to her in the how much drama and bad publicity do we want to take in by hiring a woman field. I will be looked upon by my male peers as trouble. Any men who have been exposed to this situation in the industry will look upon any game I pitch or submit for review with eyes that wonder if I’m willing to sleep with them to be successful. She has unwittingly (I hope and pray) made it so much harder for women to enter the industry because we are all now “Zoe Quinn” in their minds. We risk bad publicity, we risk anger from the internet because of this. I support strong women in the gaming industry, no woman should tip-toe around men in the office or put up with bull shit and harassment from their male counterparts just to be part of the club but now its going to be that much harder for us. Because of her. It makes me so angry….so FUCKING ANGRY because I feel like my dream is that much further out of my reach because of HER and the choices she made. While I was delving trying to find as much information about what happened and how it happened I burst into uncontrollable sobs because all I could think was, “Why god why did I have to be born with a vagina? How could you give me this dream and make it have so many hurdles that have to do with something I cannot help? Why did you have to make it so much harder now when I was finally feeling like I could be close?” Even now as I’m typing this I’m shaking all over with rage and despair, a distant buzzing in my head of my dreams slipping out of my grasp. The real victims in this situation are all the women like me, who now have to work so much harder, be on their best behavior at all times because one slip and we could lose everything because she has set the public precedent of this. All this scandal and shit is now the burden of all the women who want what she has. A job in the gaming industry.
I’m sure I’ll get hate for this but I don’t care. This is how I feel on my personal blog and yes it is out there for the world to see. I want them to see it. Maybe her supporters will see it and think just for one moment what the actual ramifications of her and their actions are.
hey how you doin lil mama lemme whisper in yo ear
my husband has done this to me it was more like “shhh just let it happen”
