“No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.”—
You should check out this blog. The title is a bit misleading.
It’s more of a blog about the misogyny and objectification of women within Skyrim’s modding community, which is something I love to bitch about.
Yes. This is good. This is very good.
I love most of the TES fans, but this points out the parts that I vehemently dislike. Or hate with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. Either way works.
This is one thing that I feel very strongly about. I know chainmail bikinis and godawful animu hair/makeup mods are BOUND to happen when you’re able to mod a game as freely as you can mod Skyrim/Oblivion/Morrowind, but this part of the modding community I absolutely loathe, not only because of the blatant objectification of women but also because it effectively breaks the immersion and the visual style and design of the games. If I were a game designer and saw this being done to my creation, I would be severely offended.
It’s like somebody pissing on your baby.
I’m screaming in some weird combination of incredible joy and equally incredible terror.
I just — wow. This was a joke blog I started essentially as an outlet for all the frustration I felt about being a woman in the Skyrim modding community and being mobbed with the idea that my character (and by extension, me personally) had to show as much skin as possible in order to be attractive. I never expected it’d garner so much support. To clarify, when I started this blog, the only armor mods out there were ones to remove clothing — there are now ones that are practical coverage and beautiful and I will try to give them as much love as possible, because those modders deserve a high-five.
I just thought it’d have 3 followers forever, and the fact that it now has 105 and counting just boggles my mind. Wow.
Oh lookie there. The original creator of the blog. Could probably go give her a follow too.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm famous and completely inaccessible.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm straight, so the only serious relationship we'll ever have begins with a "b".
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm a douchebag, and for the most part you'll just be a really awesome fleshlight to me.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm twice your age, so most people will assume we're related and that'll make any kind of PDA painfully awkward.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm a lot younger than you. Jail anyone?
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm taken and/or blissfully happy without you.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm going to friend-zone you. Good luck not developing feelings for me while I depend on you for everything except romance!
Attractive boy:Hi! I live on the other side of the world.
Attractive boy:Hi! I'm not even the slightest bit interested in you because you're too tall, or too short, or too skinny, or too fat, or too fem, or too masc, or too boring, or too outgoing, or I don't like your skin color, or I think your hair is gross, or some other reason that will make you feel like there's something or several things terribly wrong with you.
holy fucking shit truer words have never been spoken
