Tormuse

This blog is a mix of feminism and social justice issues and stuff that I just find cute and funny. :) I like animals, art, science, and nerdy things and any combinations thereof.

I tend to be shy and insecure and I'm prone to depression and anxiety, so I try to keep my blog to happy subjects whenever possible to keep from upsetting myself or otherwise keep my mood from spiralling down. (I don't always succeed, but I try)

I am a white, heterosexual, able-bodied cis-male living in Toronto, Canada. I believe it's important for me to maintain an awareness of the privilege that these traits offer me and I invite anyone to call me out if I ever say or do anything problematic, because I want to help people whenever possible and would never want to make things worse, even inadvertently.

It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain. 

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.

I shouldn’t find this so fucking tragic funny, but fuck him.

I thought he was homeless? How’d he get to Ferguson?

"Police found two handguns, a shotgun, and several knives inside Zimmerman’s car at the time of his arrest. It is unclear why Zimmerman was visiting Ferguson…"

I disagree.  I think it’s completely clear why he was visiting Ferguson.

Also, isn’t it interesting that the police, who are more than willing to open fire on unarmed black people, didn’t shoot a heavily armed white person who was actively pointing a gun at people and yelling threats at them.  Hmm…

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

I really hope James Gunn sees this.
