Now Playing Tracks

LOKI #7 is out, so here’s three new songs on the soundtrack:

The Prisoner Theme - Various
Stop The War Now - Edwin Starr
Don’t Give Up - Willie Nelson and Sinead O’Connor

I’d have added an extra track for Loki’s appearance in Magneto this week, but Spotify doesn’t have “Sounds Of The Wickedness” by Tzant. BAD SPOTIFY.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

This is terrifying

I’ve been talking a lot about engaging in popular culture with awareness and consuming media critically the last day or two. And I wanted to reblog this because in the United States, the term “culture wars” is often used as a metaphor, but it’s becoming all too accurate.

Writers and bloggers, academics and activists, are not only being openly attacked, but their attackers are being portrayed in the media as having “a difference of opinion”. The fact is, no one is willing to step up and defend our right to speak and be still remain physically safe. Social media and topical websites (by which I mean the people who run them and write for them) are complicit in this kind of silencing and abuse. The police are complicit when they refuse to provide safety. Anyone who does not push back, who does not say, “Wait, this is NOT okay!” is complicit.

Every woman I know who engages in any kind of critique of poplar culture has been subjected to threats, harassment, stalking, and attempts to slander or discredit their work. I’ve been subjected to this, especially when I’ve said anything whatsoever about video games. Where does it end? When do we say “no more”?

THAT LAST ONE THO

I want that last one tattooed on my skin.

You could replace “games” in that one with literally anything geeks like and it would be just as accurate of a representation of the art/business argument.

NYCC PANELS AND SIGNING SCHEDULE

alewing:

Here’s where I’ll be.

THURSDAY:

2pm - Doctor Who panel. Location - Room 1A10. This is all about the Titan Comics Doctor Who books, so I’ll be saying some things about that.

On the website, it says I’m on the 2000AD panel, which is happening at the same time - unfortunately, I had to pick one,…

Reblogging! After the Titan signing, I’ll spend an hour at the 2000AD booth directly behind it. So #224something. Walk down row #2200, you can’t miss it.

This is a Loki duck! A present from a very cool fan named [EDIT - I did misremember her name - it’s Ady. Blame the jet lag.] who came to the Doctor Who signing today - sorry I didn’t have more time to talk, but as you saw, it was crazy busy. Anyway, the coat comes off! I’ll post a photo of that when I have a spare minute.

Thanks to everyone who attended the panel or came by the Titan booth today - it was great to see you all!

Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world […] It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.
