"who cares about representation in video games, video games are meant for escapism"
how exactly is it escapism to switch from a world where white cis men are in charge to…….. a world where white cis men are in charge
also what does that say about you when you want to “escape” to a world completely devoid of poc and women
i wonder if magic is real, but only in a really mundane way.
when i was little i could almost inerringly switch back to disney channel right as the ads ended when i was channel surfing.
maybe youve never accidentally crushed a ladybug underfoot. maybe your microwave popcorn never burns. maybe you can spin around lots and lots of times before you get dizzy.
is that magic??
honestly im not sure if these are magic or just small, invisible skills. im not sure which i like better.

GamerGate literally and explicitly began with an ex-boyfriend using social media to try and humiliate his ex-girlfriend by talking about her sex life.
It is beyond me how peoples and companies cannot see that this is intrinsically, inherently about gender politics at its core. No matter how much we talk about “Journalism ethics” or “Bullying” or anything else.
To say otherwise would be the equivalent of saying you have a delicious Rice-free recipe for rice cakes where the one ingredient is rice.
People like to think they’re part of a grand crusade for justice… not an internet hate group.
Plus. They ignore the fact that the industry is against them. I’m talking about actual developers and designers. The Industry wants NOTHING to do with gamergate because it is at its core… wrong.
I would sell a kidney to have a scene where Eska meets old lady Mai
I would sell one of my kidneys for Desna to be there too so you don’t have to give both kidneys
who says i’m selling MY kidneys?
*ahem* ok alright ok forget everything that was said I think you should go meet Mai yourself because you are clearly Eska already
