I hear people say they want polyamory in Inquisition, but I rather there wasn’t. As much as I’d love to romance everyone… having to let someone go, turn someone down, or BE turned down forces you to make emotional decisions. Sometimes that’s better than just having your cake and eating it too.

OR you could have both, so that poly players can have some representation, and players who enjoy being denied everything can have their “emotional decisions”.
Seriously, I am so tired of people placing these arbitrary limits on power fantasies like stop acting like Dragon Age and Mass Effect are Life Lesson Simulators. Enough of the people who get socked in the face by the content exclusions justified by this kind of thinking already live lives all but governed by these limitations. Trust me, nobody needs a video game to provide them with emotional decisions and, also, there is literally no reason to have a fucking cake around if you can’t fucking eat it.

you know whats gross

that people w penises are generally v v educated about their bodies as kids like they know exactly whats gonna happen

but like for me i had no idea what vaginal discharge was and when i started getting it in 5th grade i was fucking petrified and i hear so many stories about little girls thinking that theyre dying because no one told them what a period was

idk thats just really fucking shitty that female anatomy is so taboo that we cant even properly educate kids

Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail. Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes. Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.

Wow.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!

Yeah, but: There’s a reason for the word AMAZON.
It’s great that Kacy Catanzaro is small but is strong as hell. But don’t we have enough ‘strong female characters’ who are skinny and model-delicate? Why can’t Diana, the Princess of the Amazons, actually BE the cultural ideal of what an Amazon is? The one female character who has it built into her mythology that she’s huge and powerful — taller than most of her male peers — and it’s “closed minded and ignorant” to want her to look like that, when we don’t see that kind of female strength in the media unless they’re making that woman out to be a freak or grotesque?
So even apart from her disgusting anti-Palestine comments, Gal Gadot is not the Wonder Woman for me. I DO want a big strong Amazon princess. Where the hell else am I gonna get one?

chris please stop because I don’t want to love you

I wish to dispel the notion that women are “more emotional.” I don’t think we are. I think that the emotions women stereotypically express are what men call “emotions,” and the emotions that men typically express are somehow considered by men to be something else.

This is incorrect. Anger? EMOTION. Hate? EMOTION. Resorting to violence? EMOTIONAL OUTBURST. An irrational need to be correct when all the evidence is against you? Pretty sure that’s an emotion. Resorting to shouting really loudly when you don’t like the other person’s point of view? That’s called “being too emotional to engage in a rational discussion.”

Not only do I think men are at least as emotional as women, I think that these stereotypically male emotions are more damaging to rational dialogue than are stereotypically female emotions. A hurt, crying person can still listen, think, and speak. A shouting, angry person? That person is crapping all over meaningful discourse.

  1. Karliah: We must be very quiet, the Falmer may not be able to see us, but they CAN hear us.
  2. Me: *supa sneak quiet as a templemouse*
  3. Brynjolf: LASS. *hits every bone alarm* *steps on every pressure plate* *awakens the Centurion*

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
