A proposed experiment

nerdcornerstuff:

Please reblog if you play RPGs (D&D, Pathfinder, WoD etc) or are a video gamer AND have been in or are in relationship.

Id like to show the world that the stereotype of someone being undateable because they are a gamer is total BS.

I’m a female (human- I’m no unicorn!) gamer (RPG and computer) who’s been married for nearly 11 years to a non-gamer.

More of my gaming friends are married than not.

Stereotypes are dumb.

"It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."

"Developing the ability to piss other people off (or even to RISK pissing them off) without knuckling under is pretty much the Holy Grail of emotionally abused kids, I think. We are programmed to respond at the first sign of displeasure, and we don’t have the faith in ourselves and our decisions to weather the storm– or even a mild sprinkle– so we tend to freak out as if the world was ending if a cloud crosses the sun. We freak out about the possibility that we’re wrong, that we’re doing the wrong things, that we’re making the wrong choices, that we’ll make someone angry, because there’s this awful certainty lurking at the back of our minds that says “If you do the wrong thing, you will be in TROUBLE.” And being in TROUBLE is the worst thing, ever, because that part of our brain is forever three years old where our parents are our whole world and being in TROUBLE is the end of everything.

It takes a lot of practice to gain that sort of gut-level knowledge that we’re strong enough to handle this stuff and that the world doesn’t end if someone else is angry at us. It’s not an innate quality that some people have and some don’t; people who grow up in non-abusive homes learn it when they’re young, is all, and the rest of us have to learn it when we’re grown up. And it sucks, and it’s not fair, and it’s not fun, but there’s no getting around it, and you can do it, you CAN.

You can piss people off.

You can be wrong.

You can fuck up.

You can do stuff that everyone thinks is weird.

AND IT IS ALL OKAY. The world won’t end. You will still be a good person. And the likelihood is that most of the things you do WON’T be wrong, and WON’T piss people off, and WON’T be up-fuckery, and WON’T be weird, but if it is? The hell with it; fix it, if necessary, and move on."

This is nice to hear/read, and it’s very true stuff. It’s okay for people to be mad at you, or for you to be mad at people. That’s just a part of life and being human.

Man, I’m *still* working on this.

Like- a mistake isn’t the end of the world? I can say a wrong thing and people won’t instantly hate me? Huh.

[Image: A screencap from Iron Man of a fragment of code with a progress bar in front of it; the code is reproduced below.]
moviecode:

From: http://deeperdesign.wordpress.com/2010/02/26/is-iron-man-made-of-lego/
I was re-watching Iron Man recently and noticed something interesting.  During Iron Man’s first “boot up sequence”, in the “terrorist” caves of Nowhereistan, some butchered C code is displayed on a faked up laptop screen.
The code displayed on screen, although missing some syntactically important characters such as semi-colons, is actual valid C source code.  So valid in fact that I wondered where it came from.
After a quick Google I found it. This code is in fact as follows:
    send[0] = 0x65;
    send[1] = 1;
    send[2] = 3;
    send[3] = 5;
    send[4] = 7;
    send[5] = 11;

    if (rcx_sendrecv(fd, send, 6, recv, 1, 50, RETRIES, use_comp) != 1) {
	fprintf(stderr, "%s: delete firmware failed\n", progname);
	exit(1);
    }

    /* Start firmware download */
    send[0] = 0x75;
    send[1] = (start &gt;&gt; 0) &amp; 0xff;
    send[2] = (start &gt;&gt; 8) &amp; 0xff;
    send[3] = (cksum &gt;&gt; 0) &amp; 0xff;
    send[4] = (cksum &gt;&gt; 8) &amp; 0xff;
    send[5] = 0;

    if (rcx_sendrecv(fd, send, 6, recv, 2, 50, RETRIES, use_comp) != 2) {
	fprintf(stderr, "%s: start firmware download failed\n", progname);
	exit(1);
    }

    /* Transfer data */
    addr = 0;
    index = 1;
    for (addr = 0, index = 1; addr &lt; len; addr += size, index++) {
The code above comes from a firmware downloader for the RCX (a programmable, microcontroller-based Lego brick), written in 1998 at Stanford University by Kekoa Proudfoot. You can get the full source file here and it is distributed under the Mozilla Public License.  This is the same license used by Firefox and many other Open Source software products.
The sequence in the film in which this code appears suggests that the code is either being downloaded as firmware to the Iron Man suit or being used to upload firmware to an RCX Lego brick that is somehow involved in the operation of Iron Man.
So it appears that Iron Man is either powered by Open Source software or made of Lego.  I’m not sure which is cooler.



Both. Both is good.

I think we all need to acknowledge this for a second because Adam made a really good point about this the other day and I haven’t gotten around to bitching about it until now. Everyone has been going on for MONTHS about how ridiculous wrecking ball is. How Miley is nude and posed provocatively and singing a pop-y song. Now, Panic! At The Disco has released a music video of Brendon Urie basically naked, posed provocatively, singing a pop-y song. No one says a god damned thing. Everyone is all hot-and-bothered over Brendon, but pissed at Miley, calling her a slut. (don’t get me wrong, I loved the music video, too. However, I find Miley just as sexy.)

I’m just saying, this is why I need feminism.

I would also like to point out the different meanings of the nudity in either video.

The Panic! At The Disco video is a song Called Girls/Girls/Boys. A song about a girl who is struggling with her sexual identity and [the narrator / singer] is calling her out by telling her he can see through her “having a boyfriend” rouse, because it’s obvious that she also has a girlfriend whom she keeps in secret to protect her “straight” appearance; for fear of judgement. It is also alluded to here that the singer / narrator has an unrequited love for the girl, but is obviously not the gender that she prefers. The nudity in this video appears to represent openness. The lack of secrets or anything to hide. He’s a male, in love with a female who prefers females and will never love him back; and there’s nothing he can do about it to change himself.

The Miley video is for Wrecking Ball. A much more self explanatory song about the raw, hurting, feelings after a break up with a long term relationship. Not any relationship, but, a real relationship with a real person that Miley had publicly just gone through. There was basically a 100% chance that her ex would see that video; and this is where the nudity comes in. Not something sexual, but vulnerability. The two most vulnerable states in the world are being nude (physical judgement, lack of protection) and expressing your emotions (emotional / mental judgement, letting down your guard). The nudity in Miley’s video represents her being completely vulnerable; much like she had been to let her ex into her life for such a long time.

Either way, gender removed from the topic; neither nudity in either video is a sexual nudity. The problem here isn’t just gender discrimination; it’s also oversexualization. If the nudity in the videos was not taken out of context and sexualized; neither of the artists involved would be patronized or glorified in any way other than a genuine critique.

This is why oversexualization is a problem.

Thank you

This.

I don’t like Miley’s songs, but jesus people got their panties in a twist over that music video.

The problem is that our society considers *any* female nudity as sexual- even breastfeeding. Literally the purpose of breasts, and yet, GASP, it’s wrong to pop one out to feed a baby.
