I Get Male – Beta Blocker

I have generally stayed out of the whole anti-FTB malarky unless it lands on my door. For those who are unaware? There are a sizeable group of people on Reddit and a forum called the Slymepit who actively dislike pretty much anything Freethought Blogs does.

Serena Williams is a role model for millions of young girls particularly those of colour who often rarely played any sport let alone tennis which for a long time was treated as “posh” (It certainly was when I was growing up. It was football or …

No longer are they docile. No longer do their lives revolve around men and how to please them. It’s not that men’s power has been eroded but women have …

Hags of Lag – Youtubes, Escapist and Anita Sarkeesian

I know I covered Thunderfoot’s take on Anita Sarkeesian’s Damsel in Distress video and why I thought his arguments were pointless, but the Escapist’s Critical Miss explains the gripe in a much more succinct way.

Hags of Lag – Jimquisition gets it

If you aren’t aware about the controversy regarding the game Remember Me, then here is a summary. Apparently the creator had to fight a lot to get his game released because there was the notion that you cannot sell a “Female Protagonist” in a game. It won’t sell. Dudes don’t like Kissing Dudes.

Hags of Lag – You Called?

If you haven’t heard it elsewhere then you should know that Anita Sarkeesian’s series on Tropes vs. Women in Video Games is up… If you haven’t heard about it then here are some simple facts.
