anyone who says cats are the only assholes has clearly never owned a dog
Inspired by this. It’s possible I missed the original point.
Yugi has a mom?
Yugi’s mother’s major appearance was in chapter 41 of the original manga, where she whacks him upside the head with a ladle because he’s playing a matching game with his socks instead of getting ready for school. She’s hilarious and adorable and I probably would have read a manga that was just about her having to chase her son around because he neglects his formal education playing card games.
Also which one of you decided this post needed 1,000 notes.
Can I just reblog this again because this is beautiful.
ow ow ow owowow

…now that you think about it…
Never can just scroll by this.
No fucking way.
i think this could be useful for the people who is not totally sure about spend their money in this movie, it has their good and bad points, but generally is a great movie, so please, let’s show them that “An Hispanic story” can be as good as any other one, or even better!.
yo but scotty rooting around in like the ceiling of the enterprise for a repair or something and he overhears someone talking shit about the enterprise or saying she was getting old and he just descends from the ceiling like “you wanna talk shit, lad? i’ll bash ye fookin head i swear on me mum.”
Diversity always wins. Diversity isn’t going to leave music, or TV, or film no matter how many backlashes and reversals there are.
The “fake geek girls” aren’t going to leave your subculture; the “PC police” aren’t going to stop criticizing it. “Angry black women” aren’t getting off your TV and neither are angry Asian men. The “PC diversity brigade” of science-fiction writers is going to keep winning Hugo and Nebula awards, and someday my wife’s going to be one of them.
Critics like Anita Sarkeesian will keep on pointing out what’s bad in games so we can start looking for ways to make games better. Indie designers like Zoe Quinn and Kellee Santiago will keep pushing the boundaries of gaming at the fringes so that people like Manveer Heir and Rhianna Pratchett have breathing room to explore what mainstream “AAA” games can be.
Reactionaries know they can’t win. Their anger stems from their desperation. Read the #GamerGate tag for a while and realize the obsessive fixation on the “corrupt agenda in the gaming press” is, underneath the anger, fear. For all the damage they do, for all the people they hurt, they’re going to lose. Indeed, to react as they have is to prove that they’ve already lost.
After all, #GamerGate, did you think we’d crumble? Did you think we’d lay down and die?
No, not us. We will survive.

A damn good article about how the very real violence resulting from what we call “culture wars” is yet another case of history repeating itself. Hopefully the determination of those willing to analyze, question, and hold media accountable for the narratives it tells us will ensure that this backlash will once again be the harbinger of social change.
