Public Service Announcement

This hasn’t come up before, but I’m a huge Assassin’s Creed fangirl.

Well, not anymore!

I highly encourage anyone who has ever met a woman to be loud about this. Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, whatever. Write letter if that’s your thing.

Don’t give them any more money. I won’t be buying this game, and I won’t be buying Black Flag, which I was planning to (Not that it’s much of a loss; AC3 was a complete and utter storytelling disaster, which is why I hadn’t gotten Black Flag yet anyway).

This. Can’t. Be. Acceptable.

edit: Boyfriend chimes in with the real explanation: “It’s not just the animation, wouldn’t they have to redo all of the voice acting so that other characters sound condescending when talking to women? That would be a lot of work.” Marry me. Oh, wait.

Fault in Our Stars, Chapter 12 [Part 2]

I keep forgetting to post these, but here are two wonderful deconstructions of Green’s public persona that make me feel even less guilty about despising him based on this book:

John Green Responds to The Daily Mail
On The Advent of “GreenLit” (Warning: Terrifying Comments Section)

Alright, time for that hot, steamy Holocaust.

edit: Just got the following comment/links from Whittler:

I decided to post about privilege and not John Green condoning sexual assault then.

What the fuck.

Why “The Big Bang Theory” Makes My Blood Boil

Enjoy this three-minute clip that encapsulates why I can’t be in the same room with people talking about this show without wanting to maim everyone!

Remember girls: You have no right to stand up to a man who is sexually harassing you! That makes you a bitch, and people will laugh at you! Men’s feelings are more important than yours, because women are sex objects, not people.

(Less obvious: anti-intellectualism, making fun of smart people is fine and also they deserve it, the main character is a sociopath and i mean literally in the clinical sense. I’m not going into it because it makes me froth at the mouth. Go watch this fucked-up shit yourself if you want to see.)

If I Had to Read It, So Do You

Just thought you all would enjoy the cover description of Stolen by Lucy Christopher:

A girl: Gemma, 16, at the airport, on her way to a family vacation.

A guy: Ty, rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar, eyes blue as ice.

She steps away. For just a second. He pays for her drink. And drugs it. They talk. Their hands touch. And before Gemma knows what’s happening, Ty takes her. Steals her away. To sand and heat. To emptiness and isolation. To nowhere. And expects her to love him.

Written as a letter from a victim to her captor, this is Gemma’s desperate story of survival. Ty has STOLEN her body. Against every instinct screaming inside her, will he also steal Gemma’s heart?
