you start up the new dragon age. excited to make your own character with their own personality and story line. you press start but there is no character creation screen. you don’t choose a name or race or class. there is only one choice and that choice is sandal. you’ve been fooled. you must play as sandal. the only dialogue choices are variations on the word enchantment. it’s the best game you’ve ever played.

By the “not all men” logic, Russian Roulette is a perfectly safe game to play. Sure, one of the chambers has a bullet in it…

but not all chambers

One out of six men is murderer. Will literally kill you. YOUR ‘LOGIC’ IS SHIT.

I’m not gonna do the ice bucket challenge not cos I think its a waste of water but because I find it depressing that the only thing that can provoke many humans to donate to charity is the mass desire to imitate those within our social circles. 

Although I’d never say it is Jennifer Lawrence’s fault that naked photos of her were leaked, I don’t take naked photos because of that very reason, and i’m not even famous. I know people who its turned out badly for, and it seems like a bad idea seeing as phones are so easily lost or stolen.

She has a right to a private life, but I don’t think even looking at the pictures should be classed as ‘an act of sexual violition’ as this article says. It’s unfortunate for her, but there’s nothing she can do about it now. And thats exactly the sort of powerless position you place yourself in if you take nudes. I don’t think that this is necessarily rape culture either, or not in the sense that term is most commonly used. Although its clearly wrong to distribute those images of anyone- the same would happen to any male celebrity, see Pete Wentz. 

Having nudes leaked isn’t an unfortunate side effect of being a woman, its an unfortunate side effect of being famous, and having every element of your life intruded into, which is the real problem here.
