this quote is from a bizarre New York Times article on Comic Con and, I’m sorry, I must have missed something: has the conversation surrounding Eliot Rodger really skipped past gun laws and rape culture and gone straight to VIDEO GAMES?
how the fuck does that work? how do you ignore a man’s public rage and contempt for women only to decide “clearly the culprit in this crime was Halo.”
is misogyny so acceptable in America that the media will bend over backwards to find a different motivation for murder, no matter how illogical?
I am not here to dismiss any arguments over violence in media (I’m concerned about it myself) but that concern comes from an artistic viewpoint. I’d like to see more media, particularly video games, explore stories that don’t involve non-stop killing, because I want to see fresh ideas. And sure, I’m disappointed that violence is so celebrated in games. But Jesus CHRIST how do you draw a line from cosplayers at Comic Con to mass murderers?
Comic books, movies, video games, and combinations of all three of those things (synergy!) are big business. BIG business. This stuff is popular all around the world. It has been for decades. If there was a direct causality between media violence and real violence, we’d be hip-deep in imitation murders by now, and by “us” I mean the entire world.
You want to talk about media and Eliot Rodger, how about we talk about sexism in the media? Like the fact that women in media are typically there to serve as a MacGuffin for the hero to rescue? Like the fact that media tells men - particularly young men - that having sex with a woman is their reward for being “nice”?
But sure, three cherry-picked white men from a sickening number of shootings in the United States played video games, so let’s study violent entertainment more.(via feitclub)
In which Robert praises everyone (including himself), Jeremy is enjoying every second of the event, and Mark disagrees when Robert says he’s “less significant,” but enthusiastically agrees when a fan screams Robert is “the best”.
Like not once did she say “I want a prince to come and rescue me from my situation.”
She just wanted to look cute and turn the fuck up at the party.
