Anonymous: What is your favorite Disney movie??
it used to be Beauty and the Beast. As a kid, a nerdy librarian who don’t need a man was super appealing. As an adult, I can see the stockholm syndrome correlations and… it isn’t too awesome. Mulan, a crossdressing woman who doesn’t do the girly things, goes off to fight as a man. SHE GETS CAUGHT. THEN, instead of dressing like a man to save the day, she does it as a woman. Not as a woman trying to be a man. Nope. Sure, there’s problems with the movie, but that message is pretty awesome.
Anonymous: How long does it usually take you to draw an answer to an ask??
HAHAHAH! As you can see… I am bad about it sometimes. I usually do them in between other stuff so it’s during my 5-10 minute breaks or after I get enough work done where i don’t feel too bad goofing off and doodling. :)
Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.
