 Children, especially young women, are expected to "keep the family

 Children don't deserve to suffer trauma for adults' feelings of
 togetherness. They're more worthy of protection than predators. A

 everybody assumed that a mother was incapable of sexually abusing
 her own kids. nobody was looking out for me or my brothers and if
 they had been, they would have automatically suspected my dad

 This reminds me of a party I went to last year. I was standing with some
 friends, chatting, and someone said something that indirectly implied that
 sexism exists. Some trivial recounting of the basic facts of daily life for most
 women. Something so mild, so uncontroversial, so mundane that I don't even
 remember what it was
 Suddenly, this man standing on the outskirts of our conversational circle piped
 up with "actually, I think men are more discriminated against than women
 these days."
 All conversation died
 l turned to look at him and he had this smug, insufferable grin on his face
 relishing this moment, expecting us to waste our time and energy refuting this
 ridiculous thing he had just said
 The Devil's Advocate was among us
 And, in my mind, I saw the next 15+ minutes playing out. The parade of facts
 and statistics in a vain attempt to defend ourselves, our gender, and to prove
 that misogyny is real. The glib, snide denials from some shithead who is
 getting off on our pain and frustration. The Gish Gallop of bullshit that would
 take a whole evening to properly dismantle. It was depressing and
 overwhelming. I hated it. I had to kill it before it began
 So looked him dead in the eye and I said "OK," shrugged, and just walked
 away
 Nothing I have ever said to another human being has ever been so crushing
 As I walked away, I watched the smug grin vanish and confusion and anxiety
 set in. The rest of the group turned their backs to him and carried on as if he
 had never spoken - as if he was invisible. He was still staring at me when
 walked over to another friend and told her what he had said. I pointed him out

 very clear to me the consequences for changing
 majors, that it would be held over my head for the
 rest of my life (they did it to cousin)
 >went there felt freedom for the first time in my life
 did not drug/drink/sex bender or get into trouble
 still maintained good grades throughout (dropped
 only 1 class, A's and B's in a very competitive
 program while taking a minor and premed courses)
 develop some of my own non-academic interests
 and hobbies which family grudgingly accepted
 (though still to this day try to pressure me to sell it
 all o
 stupidest thing I did was ask out high school
 oneitis, who proceeded to use my crime against
 me as a cheap way to gain connections for the rest
 of the 4 years
 nearly dropped out of major over that
 only thing that stopped me was seeing that it
 would take 5 years to graduate, and that it would
 be impossible to explain to family
 heartbreak is temporary, family is forever amirite?

So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist.

 at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be
 strong u
 nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be
 right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just
 ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does
 not mean that their value is any less real
 This
 First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who
 e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan
 abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and
 teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to
 the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by
 the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice
 their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so
 Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude
 by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome
 older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud
 perpetuated by stealing something very intimate.
 Plot driven
 hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult
 being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely
 affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just.
 Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always
 be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive.
 Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining
 the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own
 misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves
 mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered
 y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and
 nearly murdered.
 Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the
 protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being
 forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush
 everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the
 government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can
 feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious
 actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant
 guilt
 Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the
 potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one
 case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the lo
 life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love
 out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that
 seem powerful and larger than life
 Seventh book Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the
 end up suffering and afraid. More internalised prejudice and feaf hysterical terror of
 ting those you love. Self-sacrifice and the loss of loved ones, EVERYWHE
 se who are bitter are often so with a reason. The necessity of defeating yo
 inner demons, even though it's never as cool as it sounds. Don't underestimate
 those that are enslaved. Other people's culture isn't always like your own. Things
 often come full circle (war ending with the death of a dearly-loved pair of new
 parents and their orphaned baby son living with his dead mother's blood relative
 instead of his young godfather). Even if all is well' the world is still imperfect,
 because it's full of us brilliant imperfect humans.
 So.. still think that Harry Potter is a kid's series with no depth?
 fuck it's three am. and I'm having feelings about Harry Potter

Thing is, people ignore the actual struggles she went through just because they have a Narrative. She didn’t just beat Kylo, he knocked her out pretty much instantly, and then Fin bought her time, and then she temporarily forced Ben back (IIRC, the book says she tapped into the Dark Side). We don’t even know if he would’ve been able to win if he got up, or even if he could get up. And this was while Kylo was bleeding out from a high-powered weapon, which the movie takes pain to remind us of. But the fanbase acts like Rey apparently beat Ben with one hand tied behind her back, wearing a blindfold, while suffering from some hideous space-combination of Avian Flu and Ebola Zaire. I’m so glad I’m not crazy. I thought I was the only one in the more conservative camp that doesn’t agree that Rey is a Mary Sue. There is lots of in-text explanation for why she excels at certain things as well as the time honored “because the Force“ answer which has applied to a lot of characters besides her. And she absolutely does have struggles even if they are primarily in emotional conflict and wrestling with her untapped strength and insecurities about her origins. These are what make the character. Calling the whole character a Mary Sue because “she fight too good“ is kind of asinine. And don’t get me started on how they bitch about her beating Kylo and forget that he was mortally wounded at the time, and bitch about her knowing something about the Millennium Falcon and mechanical engineering despite the fact that she was A PROFESSIONAL JUNKER and the ship had been on her planet probably most of her life giving her plenty of time to explore it. But yeah pretending that only the minority actors/actresses get harrassed is bullshit. Rey is 100% a Mary Sue. No training yet managed to beat Kylo Ren, flew a ship across space despite no experience, etc. @rockyrz did you read literally one word from the post above you or are you just gonna keep shouting “she’s a Mary Sue!“ and ignore all evidence to the contrary?“Managed to beat Kylo Ren”BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING MORTALLY WOUNDED.“flew a ship across space”BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST STATED SHE WAS A PILOT.Like seriously it’s fine if you don’t like the movie but you seem kind of dumb if you just straight up ignore the evidence even it’s right in front of your face so you can keep saying the same thing over and over.

(Culturel Google MARU NIHONIHO LISY KANIE GAMERS ELISSA HARRIS A FUN, INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION RECOGNISES THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK BY WOMEN IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY e days of gaming being a boys-only zone are well and truly over. Nearly half of all gamers are women and, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the number of women working in the industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers and developers in the US were harassed and threatened for speaking out against sexism-give the industry a bad reputation. An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women in Games aims to change that. Ten female programmers, producers, designers and directors from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and visitors can play their games, which range from big studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky Towers through to more experimental titles. As programmer Elissa Harris says in the exhibition, "One of the most important things for a child growing up is seeing people who look like them doing the things they want to be doing. More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in games used to be mainly men-now there is more variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces games with Mäori characters, and players can choose to play in English or Te Reo Mãori. And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014 now the team is 35% women. "The video game industry has definitely identified the gender mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it and taken it on board and want to improve it."

 A FUN, INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION
 RECOGNISES THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK
 BY WOMEN IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY
 e days of gaming being a boys-only zone are
 well and truly over. Nearly half of all gamers are
 women and, according to the Australian Bureau of
 Statistics, the number of women working in the
 industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in
 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and
 incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers
 and developers in the US were harassed and
 threatened for speaking out against sexism-give
 the industry a bad reputation.
 An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the
 Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women
 in Games aims to change that. Ten female
 programmers, producers, designers and directors
 from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and
 visitors can play their games, which range from big
 studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky
 Towers through to more experimental titles.
 As programmer Elissa Harris says in the
 exhibition, "One of the most important things for
 a child growing up is seeing people who look like
 them doing the things they want to be doing.
 More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more
 diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in
 games used to be mainly men-now there is more
 variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For
 example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces
 games with Mäori characters, and players can choose
 to play in English or Te Reo Mãori.
 And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the
 curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane
 was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014
 now the team is 35% women. "The video game
 industry has definitely identified the gender
 mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it
 and taken it on board and want to improve it."
 Code Breakers is at ACMI until November 5. Play
 the games online at acmi.net.au.-Chloe Walker

Bad, Books, and Children: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong u nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate. Plot driven hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive. Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered. Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant guilt Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one case, resulting in a pregnancy.

<p>I read this thread and it’s surprisingly wholesome. Lots of guys either wanting to be the little spoon, making jokes about blanket hogging, or wanting their girlfriends to say what they like so that they can pleasure them more. <br/></p>

<p>Tbh I’m starting to think most of tumblr seriously lack any serious interaction with men, and not only sexual but to a platonic/friendship level.</p>
<p><i>I don’t mean to attack anyone but how come all this people decided men would think something pervert and rapey? </i>How come people who actually checked were so surprised that men wanted something humanly acceptable and maybe even *gasps* cute?</p>
<p><i>I am serious in this question: did you ever had male friends?</i> Because <b>this thread to me was the LEAST surprising thing on earth.</b></p>
<p>In HS, having been a butch lesbian and having had a ton of male friends, the typical sex questions were “hey, can you tell me how to mae her feel good?” or “hey, how do I tell if she likes it?” or “do I sound clingy/pathetic if I want cuddles after?”. <b>Boyfriends worry about their girlfriends pleasure, their happiness and what they think of sex. They do</b>. And when they don’t do much to pleasure them, most of the time is because they are inexperienced. Women do have a problem with communicating their desire, nobody denies that it’s also society’s fault but if you don’t ask stuff you can’t get surprised you don’t get it and out there it’s full of men wanting to do things with respect and to make their girlfriends happy. </p>
<p><b>Boys are WHOLESOME. As girls are. People are wholesome</b> and nice and vulnerable and in strive for good things for them and others.</p>
<p><b>And even those who made sexual comments like “blowjobs” or “more boob stuff”…. why is it bad? It’s a NSFW thread???? </b>It’s the space to talk about that. <b>Would you have the same reaction if in their matching thread women said they want their boyfriends to go down on them more?</b> Or if they said they’d like him to touch them in different zones? Would you have complained if women said it of their girlfriends? Then why shaming boys?</p>
<p><b>Having needs both sexual and emotional is natural, the important is not force them on people who don’t feel like that and these men didn’t (which is why the thread exists in first place).</b></p>
<p>Men have emotional needs too and pretending they don’t and buying into the “all men think about is sex” and “ah men are all rapey and dirty” is sexism, not only towards men but because it implies that women are purer than them which leads to the HolyMary kinda misoginy that denies women their need to physical pleasure.</p>
<p><b>Also let’s stop pretending sex is inherently dirty and bad.</b> Sex is fun, as long as it’s consensual.</p>
