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?

Ha ha haaaa I did something to, maybe pulled something in, my hip/lower back today and moving at all is excruciating. I don’t know how I did it or even exactly when. The single nurofen I’m allowed to take a day didn’t help and I gotta wait another two hours before I can try paracetamol instead.
Mum had her knee replaced last week and offered me one of her post-surgery pain meds. (she hasn’t needed them, she’s doing astoundingly well) I want to take it so bad, I want to take the heavy-duty knock-you-on-your-ass painkillers. But I looked up drug interactions and you’re not supposed to take Endone with SSRIs or any meds with blood-thinning side effects except on the advice of your doctor and I take both those kinds of meds.
I’d risk it anyway but one of the interaction side effects is respiratory and I’ve been having respiratory issues enough lately anyway.
Oh my god this is. So painful. So painful. Nothing is helping, I can’t sit comfortably, I can’t lie down comfortably, I can’t even fidget in my chair without excruciating, sharp, stabbing pain.
And my siblings have gone back to Brisbane.
Wowee what a fuuuun day.
stress is side eyeing a bee. anxiety is feel sad when bee gone

For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
The world will soon understand why birds are so awesome and deserve to be our overlords.
