Feminists: Abolish gender roles! Girls can like masculine things and boys can like feminine things!

*a group of men unashamedly loves a cartoon made for little girls*

Feminists: DISGUSTING youre invading a space that doesnt belong to you and SOILING IT with your MASCULINITY you fedora wearing neckbeards!

If you still think feminist dislike bronies simply because they’re males, you have a shit-ton of learning to do

I’m no expert but I think it has to do with the wanton sexualization of the characters. So it’s fine if grown men enjoy the show, but polluting it with weird, beastial sexual fantasies, ironic or not, is sort of rude.

My only source on this is subject is a friend, a self-described bronie. He is a sincere proponent of the show, and I have studiously avoided inquiring further.

Xenoblade Chronicles

I finally stopped dicking around Colony 9 and actually made my way to Tephra Cave tonight. About a hundred feet in, I stumbled on a giant caterpillar. “Oh joy,” I said to myself. “This should be some easy XP. It’s just a caterpillar.”

Three deaths later, I decided to go and dick around Colony 9 some more.

After leveling up and grabbing a bunch of rare drops (in particular a SWEET fucking Light Driver for Reyn, with 2 slots and hella damage), I went back and spanked the caterpillar. Shortly afterwards, I discovered I could have easily skipped the fight. Go figure.

I scoured the caves, grabbed my Ether cylinders, and proceeded to drop my jaw on the floor as Mechon invaded my town.

My only comment on the events leading up to Dunban saving my ass: Shulk and Reyn are adorable.

After filling the streets with bisected mechon, I got to see Shulk’s foresight in action, and looking back on his Super Smash Bros intro video, they really did their homework. It is exactly as cool as they made it seem.

Then Metal Face. Then despair. I really thought something would happen. Shulk would get up. Dunban would save the day. Maybe it was just a flesh wound. Fuck. Nope. Goddamn. I’m playing this at 4 AM and I have to keep myself from screaming and waking up my girlfriend. Dear god I have never wanted to kill a boss so much. Just. Fuck. Damn.

That’s about where I’m at. Just finished the after-tragedy cinematics. Shulk and Reyn are perfect super-bros. Dunban is barely human. There was some incomprehensible cinematic featuring young Shulk and the Monado among a stack of corpses.

Whatever. I’ve got the Monado on my back. A pocket full of Stiff Hair. My buddy Reyn beside me. Memories of Fiora close behind.

Time to hunt some mechon.

I have been playing for two hours just killing rabbits and giant hermit crabs, That sounds like it shouldn’t be fun, but I’m really enjoying it. There are more quests than I can keep track of, and people keep moving. This game is alive in a way rarely seen, on the level of…

I know what you mean about out-of-party leveling. I completed a bunch of quests with Fiora, so I was worried when she left and Reyn joined. Instead I felt an overwhelming relief.

It’s the little things that make the gameplay shine. Constantly finding things on the ground makes me feel like running around is useful. The dialog and voice acting are superb (they’re all so British!). And I’m still clearly in the very early intro stages. I’m excited to see what it ramps up to.

Probably a lot, to keep you busy for 150 hours. I’ve been playing Fallout an unhealthy amount all summer, and I’m only up to half that.

This game is just at the outer edges of what my laptop can handle. I might need to ask for a desktop for a joint Xmas/bday present.

Xenoblade Chronicles is pretty cool

Best of all, I figured out how to use my controller instead of my keyboard, so I’m playing with, basically, a Gamecube controller.

So last night I watched an incredible documentary called Dirty Wars. The synopsis is below but it helped explain exactly why so many originally peaceful and moderate muslims have become so anti-american. Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald does a good job explaining.

The message is that the US is viewed as the greatest threat and that it is US aggression and violence far more than any other cause that motivates support for al-Qaida and anti-American sentiment. ..The evidence has long been compelling that the primary fuel of what the US calls terrorism are the very policies of aggression justified in the name of stopping terrorism. The vast bulk of those who have been caught in recent years attempting attacks on the US have emphatically cited US militarism and drone killings in their part of the world as their motive. Evidence is overwhelming that what has radicalized huge numbers of previously peaceful and moderate Muslims is growing rage at seeing a continuous stream of innocent victims, including children, at the hands of the seemingly endless US commitment to violence.”

Read the whole article here (warning, spoilers): http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/mar/31/dirty-wars-terrorism-victims


The growing threat of ISIS in the news and the fact that Obama is considering yet more airstrikes and action in both Iraq and Syria are making this documentary more relevant and important to see than ever. The US can not use aggressive and violent force to kill its way out of its problems, and the more it tries to do so, the more it seems to create the very type of people it seeks to eradicate.

Jeremy Scahill’s Dirty Wars is now up on Netflix and iTunes.

It’s the dirty little secret of the War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. We have fundamentally changed the rules of the game and the rules of engagement. Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government—condoned torture occur in corners across the globe, generating unprecedented civilian casualties. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill (author of BLACKWATER: The Rise of the World’s Most Mercenary Army) traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC “kill list,” even a U.S. citizen. Director Richard Rowley takes us on a chilling ride with whistle-blower Scahill. Dirty Wars is a battle cry for the soul and conscience of an America few of us know exists.

I should watch this.
