You know gamergate isn't about keeping women out of gaming, right? And gamergaters are not claiming oppression at all? They just want the shit in gaming journalism to stop.

"It’s not about keeping women out of gaming, it’s just about keeping women in their place.

THOSE ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS!”

(Also: does anyone actually refer to themselves as a ‘gamergater’? I’m picturing a douchebro crocodile with a fedora and anime-girl body pillow now.)

Completely rhetorical question

Why is it the fact that ebola has entered America is a massive failure of President Obama’s leadership abilities, but the disease spreading among the hospital staff is not one of Rick Perry’s leadership abilities?

What’s the difference here?

We have entered the era where people mourn the loss of their local chain store.

it’s a tar baby, from old stories about bre’r rabbit and i think it was in disney’s song of the south (via agoodcartoon)

It was indeed, though in the Splash Mountain ride they’ve changed it to Brer Fox trapping him in a beehive. For obvious reasons, though there is the bigger question of whether they should base a ride on that movie.

So we have another crop of “Look at how inclusive and modern the Vatican is” cartoons coming out now. Based on what? Based on the Vatican asking themselves if maybe they could, at some indeterminate point in the future, consider looking into the possibility of ‘allowing’ gays and lesbians to be Catholics.

What actual changes to church doctrine have been enacted? None. What changes have been proposed? None. It’s just the Vatican making noise about maybe - MAYBE - toning down their stance. Not reversing, just toning down.

Why is the media so eager to make more of this than it is? Why the jumping to “The Vatican is rolling out the red carpet for gays and lesbians”? Is it that they can’t/won’t understand the nuance here?

Or (and I’m aware I’m edging to conspiracy territory) is it part of some need to reinforce the validity of the most recognizable religious organization on the planet, as part of some larger status quo involving religion being a necessary component of society and individual life?

Let me explain: there are more than two political parties in America, but for the purposes of journalism and commentary every issue is boiled down to ‘Democrat versus Republican.’ It may just be for expediency, but I’ve always thought part of it was this unspoken desire to maintain an official narrative about how the world is.

Likewise, the idea that a spiritual side is necessary for someone to be a complete person, and for religious practices to be part of a proper culture, is reinforced almost unthinkingly. It’s taken for granted usually, but defended vehemently when someone suggests religion is unnecessary or even negative. Most people don’t seem to think much about religion, but the idea of criticizing it makes them defensive because it goes against the established narrative.

Is the eagerness to do the Vatican’s job for it, helping it rebrand itself as hip and modern, part of this? Part of the need to keep the narrative going?
