dresdencodak:

Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link. 

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.

Hope you like it!

Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician names Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, ” If only i had teeth down there.”Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain becaused his penis was stuck in his zipper.Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called RAPEX. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergancey room to have the RAPEX removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, ” A medieval device for a medieval deed.”

Let’s get medieval on mens asses.

My only problem is that I wish this graph came with a link to the source of this information. I know this is true, but just to back up facts for people who may not know this information, a source would be awesome.

It’s an easy google. :) Here ya go:

Fucking bullshit by the way.

Been seeing this around for awhile and was hoping somebody would pull some sources. Thanks.

This is not okay. This is the okay in a single way. This is exactly the wrong way to talk about privilege. 20k+ notes and they are almost all laughing and playing along? Please, my Tumblr friends, let’s put some sense in this chain.

How climate deniers (‘skeptics’ is a misnomer I believe) see climate change evidence vs. how realists see it. For an explanation of the escalator graph, visit Skeptical Science. Skeptical Science has a ton of Climate 101 articles. They’re easy to read, are well sourced, and written by authorities in the field.

for the second straight year, FDU has found that watching no news is more informative than watching Fox News…

Further, on international questions, No News comes in higher than Fox News and MSNBC
