That's really dumb, because any time some sort of hack happens there are all sorts of sections of the internet who zoom in on the actual hack because they're more interested and/or freaked by that out than the material that was hacked. And I for one, am glad for those types of people because they raise the question… » 9/02/14 6:12pm Yesterday 6:12pm

YES! I have an answer to this. Look up Julie Borowski; she's one of my hate-reads. She's a libertarian blogger who is gaining cred in that world. She's got at least a couple entries where she's mused about if feminism can fit with libertarianism or vice versa - I think her conclusion was that she couldn't be doing… » 8/28/14 8:53pm Thursday 8:53pm

I have argued that the purpose of this shot was two-fold: someone wrote a criticism that this was just a power pose for the men and I personally think Marvel knows all about shots for the het female perspective (Thor, come on) and as a woman myself I enjoyed this one. But there's also the fact that he was schlubby… » 8/28/14 3:51pm Thursday 3:51pm

To be fair, I think that's the standard face he makes when he's about to whip out some cynical or sarcastic one-liner, giving it more oompf. But everyone else seems to be captured in a moment of genuine happy feelings so probably not the time. » 8/28/14 5:46pm Thursday 5:46pm

The Lizard Squad is apparently doing their thing to get ISIS' approval so I'm not sure why that's mixed up in the rest. It's scary because they've managed to affect companies who I always felt were on top of their security thus proving once again that nowhere online is safe, and they've gone personal with their… » 8/28/14 4:57pm Thursday 4:57pm

I've gotten into Hearthstone in a big way. I don't even know why, it's not the best game ever but it's definitely a thinking game depending on who I'm up against, which makes winning feel more sweet. But I guess the higher rank you go the less luck you have with the appropriate card draws? This is what I noticed… » 8/26/14 4:20pm 8/26/14 4:20pm

Well said. Especially that it was legitimate to Jez's mission statement. The post completely fit in with their Disney Princess worship while working on the representation discrepancy. It was not surprising in the least. And while I'm a woman I'm neither a hardcore fan or Jez or the Disney Princess Phenomena so I'm… » 8/21/14 1:07pm 8/21/14 1:07pm

I think that's a bit of an alarmist thinking. It says it will talk about feministy topics but I don't see anywhere where it says feminist. I think it will devolve into what a lot of sites devolve into, which is talking about periods and "shit my boyfriend says." There will be ignorance for sure, but I doubt TERFs… » 8/19/14 2:11pm 8/19/14 2:11pm

Heh, I was thinking that there is a joke about a Kirk-ish Kobayashi Maru manuever in here somewhere but I'm not creative enough to connect the dots nor do I want to give anyone any ideas or get crashedpc/sarcasm miffed at me. You do it. » 8/18/14 12:02pm 8/18/14 12:02pm
