That overwatch female player getting harassed by a bunch of 15 year old boys was so stupid
Maining as Mercy because women just automatically main as Mercy cuz they like to be hot women?
Women main as Mercy because they don’t have any skill?
Women main as Mercy cuz they just naturally like supporting guys?
The fuck kind of logic-
Mercy’s a useful support hero and her Ult is great.
I’ve only recently started using her since I can’t switch between guns fast enough. She’s great, she can carry a shitty team.
it’s just so dumb that you would even say “ugh female characters, always picked by female players.” and then try to justify it with some sexist crap like “women aren’t good as offensive heroes they clearly have to be mercys. and mercys are sexy and that’s all women care about being, since nerd girls are ugly in real life.”
I clearly main Junkrat cuz he’s the sexiest overwatch character and I identify most strongly with his hair and explosive rip tire.
Junkrat is so hot. So hot. I have to play him. Also, my natural urges tell me that I can’t play any character other that doesn’t throw around explosives. Because nothing’s manlier than explosives. Also Junkrat is hot and that’s just how I play videogames.
Who doesn’t want to play a FPS with the sexiest character possible, right, who cares about abilities?
Honestly you kids…
Being bad at videogames is bad, but being sexist?
And more moronic than saying Mercy is for female players, lmao, get real.
Do you not play Mei, D.va, Widowmaker, Zarya, Ana, Symmetra, or Tracer either? Too girly?
Do you think POTO can fulfill any form of social purpose in society? How is it good for the world?
It’s a form of art and entertainment that people have enjoyed in various forms for over a century.
For people who have been isolated or ostracized, the characters (especially the Phantom) are something they can identify with, something they can use to cope when undergoing stressful situations.
It provides a way for people to connect to one another. People who love it have found others that feel the same way and formed strong friendships or romantic relationships in that way.
It teaches us themes of acceptance and compassion; that monstrous people are not created on their own, but by a judgmental people and society can create; and that redemption is still within reach for them.
And the adaptations, and particularly the ALW musical, has provided fairly steady jobs for actors and crew for the last thirty years.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: OK so I absolutely hated the 2nd chapter of this series. I feel like I’ve built a nice and comprehensive backstory in the first chapter and then went right and fucked it up in the 2nd one purely for smut purposes. But now since I’m going to be continuing this story, I went back and made changes to the 2nd chapter to make it more realistic and set the groundwork for part 3.
It’s still smutty but now with a more realistic approach to tae’s first time.
“Seriously, Taehyung?” He scratches the back of his head
sheepishly and gives you his best boxy smile, “Sorry, doll, I’ve waited for too
long, and I’m not gonna wait another minute.”
He wipes your chin and leans down to give you a kiss. You swerve at the last
minute and he ends up falling face first onto the floor, ass sticking up in the
air. A bark of laughter escapes you before you can stop it, and Taehyung looks
absolutely mortified. The blood was rushing to his face so much that you start
worrying his head might explode. Clamping your hands on your mouth to try to stifle
the laughter, you say through a muffled voice, “I’m so sorry, Taetae. It’s not
funny, I know.” But try as you might, you can’t stop the giggles shaking you
like an earthquake; the sight in front of you too absurd for you to take it
seriously. Your best friend since childhood was laying in an awkward position
on the floor of your shared apartment, his cock still out, moments after you
just gave him a blowjob.
I always rant about how Oda seems to put
emphasis on Nami when it comes to Sanji, which is also one big reason for me
thinking that Nami is in fact special to him. I decided to make a post that
goes through their fights specifically and how often there seems to be some
type of connection to the other person in their fights. Of course it’s not the
case in all fights, but still there is a considerable amount, especially from
Sanji’s side. I also bring up some other instances when the other person is in danger which I find interesting from a story-telling point of view.
It’s super long (and it took a long time to make too) but I hope you’ll read it and like it anyway. ^^’‘
"Tusk" - like Aries, this song is forceful and dynamic. The song has an objective and asserts itself with raw, unbending power that might seem obnoxious to some and immensely attractive to others.
"Gold Dust Woman" - firm, uncompromising, and powerful, this song, like Taurus, hammers home its message with blunt intensity. It tramples on the bullshit of its intended audience but not unjustly.
"Gypsy" - fun, quirky, and a party favorite. "Gypsy," like Gemini, embraces the spontaneity of fleeting social encounters but shies away from emotional depth at first glance. No one really understand you or this song, but we love you nonetheless.
"Landslide" - deeply sentimental, this song focuses on the subject of change. Like Cancer, it expresses deep emotional ties to the world around it even as it struggles to understand itself in relation to an impermanent reality
"Go Your Own Way" - well-known and well-loved, Leo, like this song, puts itself on a pedestal. Fun and playful, this song is about giving a big "f*** you!" to those who felt they could do better. Reality was you were too good for them. You go Leo.
"The Chain" - written by all five members, this song focuses on the brutal practicality of unity. Virgos can relate to this song as they often sacrifice emotion or the sake of fact and practical reason which can lead to tense social relations.
"Seven Wonders" - though you might not be the next Supreme, "Seven Wonders" is a light and flirtacious song that captures Libra's appreciation for aesthetic beauty, no matter how permanent or transient.
"Rhiannon" - the song about an old Welsh witch captures Scorpio's tendency to play aloof and yet harbor intense emotions. Like Rhiannon, you may hurt people or push them away to protect yourself, but you ultimately want to be loved.
"Don't Stop" - adventurous and optimistic, "Don't Stop" embodies Sagittarius' tendency toward social engagement and worldly ambition. Like this song, Sagittarius' is future-oriented and chooses to focus on the road ahead despite the past and present.
"Dreams" - despite the somewhat cosmic nature of the music, "Dreams" offers a sober understanding of relationships to which practical Capricorn can relate. This type of post-breakup clarity is one that is derived from Capricorn's logical way of looking at the world.
"Everywhere" - light-hearted, self-aware, and a little spacey; "Everywhere" defines Aquarius' inner conflict between desire for detachment and intellectual/emotional investment in other people
"Silver Springs" - intense, dualistic, emotional, and deeply spiritual; this song embodies Pisces' affinity for both mysticism and complex feelings. This song is a reminder to never underestimate the depth of a Pisces' emotions.
oh my gooddd when people deflect criticism by bringing up the argument that “it’s the AUTHOR’S book, it’s the AUTHOR’S characters, leave them alone!!” i lose 5 years off my life because first of all, that’s bs because literally one of the purposes of writing a book or any story, as creators never fail to remind us, is for the readers/audience to make it their own, that once the book reaches the hands of another individual, the story belongs to them because they have a unique interpretation of it, which is the whole!! point!! of storytelling!! your argument completely ignores this fact for the sake of blindly defending a writer’s work! you’re re-directing power and ownership to the creator when the whole point is to bestow ownership of the story to the audience!
you’re saying that the story inherently belongs to the author because they created it out of their own minds and that means they are in a position to reclaim, ration, and limit interpretations of their work, which, by the way, is defeating the whole purpose of like, creating stuff and publicising it.
when authors share their work, isn’t it for the purpose of initiating conversation about something they want people to think and talk about? isn’t it for the purpose of inviting diverse and unique interpretations of the same piece of work? isn’t it for the purpose of gaining feedback and constructive criticism from members of the audience – who are experiencing these issues irl – about the author’s ideas and beliefs so they can alter and modify them for the better? isn’t it for the purpose of enabling these people to see themselves in these stories and lend a voice to their struggles? and doesn’t that mean that he has given them license to correct him and he is now obligated to listen and learn? doesn’t this mean that authors have to be responsible and held accountable for what they promote and say in their stories?
so what if it’s the author’s book? that has absolutely no bearing on the fact that the readers are in a position (have been put in a position!!) to call out the flaws in the story – in fact, it’s a right, and we should be encouraging it instead of shooting it down with ignorant, invalid arguments.
