- don’t trust men who have to insult other women in order to compliment you
- a subset of this rule is don’t trust men who say ‘you’re pretty/smart/[adjective] for an indian/asian/[identity group]’
- or ‘you’re not like other [identity group optional] girls’

VGX 2013 Game of the Year Nominees
but no really why the fuck did GTA V win
every other game was either really heartfelt and moving and absolutely fantastic with great character arcs and scenery and stories that blew me away. Bioshock Infinite left me in stunned silence after the game was done, having created this beautifully realized world and wonderful story that truly did leave me in awe. Elizabeth was a powerhouse character in a variety of ways, and the Burial At Sea DLC’s give her a fantastic character arc (in addition to the beyond amazing one in the game). Tomb Raider was a much needed reboot of a franchise that was marred by its past (sexualization, etc.). It allowed the title character to become a fully realized human being, not dragged down by sexualized male gaze bullshit and given real emotions and problems. The game play and the environments were beautifully done and the AI system was a nice perk (instead of waiting around, the AI’s would interact and do things on the island instead of just waiting to be killed like most other systems). The Last of Us was a nice change from the ‘horror-zombie-apocalyptic’ game craze, and instead focused on a heart wrenching narrative and characters that put real actors to shame.
even Super Mario 3D World offered more to the table in the way of enjoyablility and cooperation than GTA V (looking at you GTA Online users)
GTA V gave us three middle aged white dudes who were terrible people for the sake of being terrible, a misogynistic and bullshit characterization of pretty much every female in their game, a power trip story arc that focused on blowing shit up, killing people, and stealing things, etc, and a pretty looking sandbox environment that, in comparison to the scope, design, and feel of the other games listed, is bland, boring, and wow its an island with a realistic city based on Los Angeles such creativity
why the fuck did GTA V win
I like my tea bitter and old-fashioned.
(also, the bottom of the cup says “fuck your standards”, and any complaints and denials of privilege existence are free refills)
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
Why don’t I live in Iceland
next onion article: “American police don’t kill anyone for entire day. First time since invention of guns”
"According to reports, the sadly disfigured 26-year-old’s quality of life has been greatly diminished due to such a condition. Sources said the abnormal, visibly blemished creature has been repeatedly passed over for employment opportunities, frequently gawked at and harassed on the street by total strangers, and has faced near constant discrimination for over two decades, all due to the horrific and debilitating birth defect."
omfg this is the best piece of satire i have read in eons.
