This dominant narrative surrounding the inevitability of female objectification and victimhood is so powerful that it not only defines our concepts of reality but it even sets the parameters for how we think about entirely fictional worlds, even those taking place in the realms of fantasy and science fiction. It’s so normalized that when these elements are critiqued, the knee-jerk response I hear most often is that if these stories did not include the exploitation of women, then the game worlds would feel too “unrealistic” or “not historically accurate”. What does it say about our culture when games routinely bend or break the laws of physics and no one bats an eye? When dragons, ogres and magic are inserted into historically influenced settings without objection. We are perfectly willing to suspend our disbelief when it comes to multiple lives, superpowers, health regeneration and the ability to carry dozens of weapons and items in a massive invisible backpack. But somehow the idea of a world without sexual violence and exploitation is deemed too strange and too bizarre to be believable. — Tropes vs Women in Video Games, Women as Background Decoration: Part 2 (via femfreq)

I am going to kick ass and take names in this coming week. Just you wait and see!

Waiting

I am eagerly awaiting phone calls.

A call to say, “We loved your application! Come on in for an interview!”

A call to say, “We got your message. What day and time would you like to see the therapist?”

A call to say “There’s been an opening. Would you like to come in earlier?”

Because I want a job, my self-esteem, and he ability to run without knee pain.

Waiting sucks ass
