Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format. 

And usually male-identified non human.

If Adore had come more prepared, with some sewing expertise and a more varied wardrobe, her chances of winning would be so much higher. Her and Darienne are the weakest at this point, but when its top 5 it could be anyones game. People give Darienne flack but shes been a solid contender. if she had even half an ounce of Latrice Royales c.u.n.t (charisma uniqueness nerve and talent) she could totally make it to top 3.
My ideal top 3 would still be Adore, Bianca, and Courtney, but based on me re-watching/overanalyzing every season of drag race, its more likely it’ll be Courtney, Ben DeLaCreme, and Bianca.

I wonder if the success of girl with dragon tattoo led to shows like the fall and top of the lake? “Men who hate women” is a prevalent, powerful motif in these stories

So a while back i was at this party and i was the first girl to arrive and there were like 20 guys already there, we were all siting around, having a beer and whatnot when the dj arrived. So all the guys went out the front of the house to help set up the dj gear and it was just me sitting there alone in the backyard for like 5 minuets. I stood up to go follow them bc i was getting really bored when i realized something, my period had gone through my white pants and stained the while chair, i was humiliated, i had no idea what to do, i could hear the guys were coming back and i had to do something quick, time was running out. So i grabbed the chair, ran like 10 meters and threw it over the fence into the neighboring yard, i quickly walked back and tied my jacket around my waist. The guys soon returned and didn’t suspect a thing, i am amazing.
