Quickies: Trans lives, the privilege of running, and feminine Pokemon
- The tragic deaths and magnificent lives of trans people – “Even if the larger public does not worry about or account for our deaths, the trans community holds these losses. We bring life to the people who are no longer with us and the truth of our beauty will no longer go unspoken.” From Donna.
- The remarkable privilege of running – “Put simply, low-income neighborhoods often aren’t as safe for runners, for a number of reasons. One study, for instance, found that due to poor infrastructure and safety enforcement, pedestrians living in low-income neighborhoods were six times more likely to be injured by a moving vehicle than those from high-income neighborhoods.”
- Starter Pokemon’s “feminine” evolution is bothering some fans – I can’t say it any better than Alex: “I literally could not make up this level of male fragility.”
- Science wide open: Children’s books about women in science – I especially love the art for this Kickstarter project.
- Cute Animal Friday! I give you, Steve the Cat and his flock of sheep. Also, weiner dogs and their BFF, a lion.
This video game designed with children in mind, a mostly gender balanced playerbase, and a cheerful light tone has something that could be construed to be feminine in it! The very idea of being forced to play a character that doesn’t match my identity in every way(if I like water types) is appalling.
As an adult white male, I cannot fathom any problem more severe. Also what’s with all these feminists suggesting that women should maybe represent more than 16% of all playable characters in AAA games? How oversensitive can you get? It’s censorship, I tell you.
Is there any room for a feminine design in video games with these guys? (I suppose it could be worse…)
No. That would be… gaaaaaaaaay.
Prizes to be won for completing the game, of course.
Yay trans issues~
