Ugh. I’m rewatching this weeks KotN episode and it just got to the part where Danielle says she would have raped at that challenge and I just… UGH. WHY. WHY IS THAT SUCH A POPULAR TERM IN GAMING?
No. You would not rape. You would succeed. You would kick-ass. You would destroy even. Out of god knows how many words to pick from why choose that one?
People think I’m too sensitive, that if I was a competitive gamer I would be “used to the term” and wouldn’t be so offended.
I love gaming. And I find it disgusting that people just trivialize such a horrible word. Rape is not a joke. Rape is not a term you can just turn into a “harmless” way of saying you’ll beat someone at a game.
The fact that she had to say “excuse my language” before she said that meant she knew it was wrong. That makes me even madder. As someone who has been sexually assaulted the fact that she knows it could be offensive but chooses to not care is awful.
People are trying to defend her, saying that the producers of the show choose to air that bit and make her look bad. That’s bullshit. They didn’t make her say that phrase. She choose to use that word. If couldn’t have showed it if it had never been said, so no, it is still her fault.
I’m tired of this being an okay term in the geek world. Because geeks can be raped too. And knowing that someone other geeks can look up to doesn’t care really hurts.
And this geek is very, very hurt.
Not K-Pop related, I apologize. (not really.)
Currently almost watching King of the Nerds. I am letting the show go in about 45 minutes so I can skip through the commercials.
I had a very large fangirl moment when I saw Panser on the tv screen.
For those who don’t know, Panser (Danielle) is the Queen of the World of Warcraft nerds. She is incredible, she has pink hair, and I love her. ^(>_<)^
I have my fingers crossed that she wins!
Though if Panser doesn’t win, I hope that Celeste does.
I was reading her bio a few weeks ago on the TBS website, and it said there that her favorite music group is Girls’ Generation… That’s all I need to know to cheer for her along side Panser.
Aw…nevermind. I just went back to the TBS to double check that it said GG…but it doesn’t. I could’ve sworn that it said she likes SNSD. I must have been seeing things I guess. Ah, well…I still like her.
But of course this is just the first episode, and I haven’t even watched it yet, so my opinion can, and probably - most likely will, change on which contestant I want to win. (Panser!)
I am wearing my ‘My Little Panser’ shirt as well.
Luckily for me, the picture that I took that shows the shirt the best
is the one where I am holding my baby boy (his name is Shadow).
(sadly though, you can’t see the pink in my hair.)
…Okay, sorry, I am done now.
