One of the most fascinating things about the same-sex marriage battle has been the evolution of the arguments against gay unions. Not long ago, gays and lesbians were not only considered unsuitable parents; they were an active danger to children, child molesters and abusers. Kids raised by same-sex couples were said to fare worse than those raised by heterosexual couples.
No such arguments were made in Chicago on Tuesday, where lawyers for Wisconsin and Indiana did their best to defend their states’ bans on same-sex marriage before a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Their line of attack against gay marriage was quite the opposite: Gay parents are too responsible to need marriage.
That’s right — lawyers for Indiana and Wisconsin claimed that because a “fleeting moment of passion” can produce offspring, straight people need marriage as an incentive to stay together and raise their “unintended children.” Gay people, on the other hand, have to think and plan a lot harder if they want to be parents, so marriage doesn’t concern them. In other words, because an ill-considered, alcohol-fueled romp between two straight people can lead to a baby, gays shouldn’t be able to marry.

hey, just an fyi, the creator of five nights at freddy’s is extremely anti choice and even made a pro life video game called The Desolate Hope that’s also on steam.
if you want to play five nights, please torrent it. don’t give him any money.
nope. this is wrong. the game was not intended to be pro choice.
please don’t encourage fucking over a creator based on the words of someone else.
idk man read the comments for yourself, still sounds heavily pro-life oriented to me. not that I was interested in the game to begin with, but eh. when the game itself was inspired by the downfalls of abortion itself (and conversely, choosing to give something that isn’t necessarily “human”, life), it’s kind of hard to take that pro-life message out, even if it was never intended to be political in nature.
you should see what coelasquid

I saw these on the bike path to the library.
What is your Steampunk Name ?
Captain Adelaide Worthingfeather.
ALL ABOARD MY FLYING SHIP, BITCHES.
Captain Dorcas Worthingdale. My ship runs on the hot air produced by all the colonial conquerors I hunt down—so that I’m the nice obvious decoy while the original residents of their countries undermine the colonial government. My crew is mostly disaffected and underappreciated women, especially women of colour.
It’s amazing the amount of sex that goes on up here, too. What’s especially amazing is how nobody ever thinks to accuse us of THAT. XD (especially after we gut an example or two for harassing our chromatic shipmates.)
Baroness Fanny Rumblebottom.
This will never be less funny. Also, I clearly have steamwork in my bustle, but either no one will ever know why, or it’ll change into Exactly What I Need For Each Zany Adventure.
Colonel Fanny Wraithbottom
Fanny is far too normal as a first name, my real name is a better choice. I must have Earned Wraithbottom.
Anonymous said: yeah, i agree that writing mary sues is probably a tendency for both genders, but i remember seeing female characters get accused of it more often, at least in fanfictions. so if a female character was the protagonist, and got focus from the narrative and some positive attention from other characters, she might be accused of being a mary sue, even though that's pretty much a standard for main characters. i may just have seen a bad patch of reviewers, though. experience not universal etc.
I think that’s a real pattern. My guess is it ties into the perception of women dominating conversations when they’re talking nearly half the time. It seems normal for a male protagonist to dominate the story, if a female protagonist does it, it seems like Too Much. But that doesn’t really make the character a Mary Sue, it just makes people look for an explanation of what’s wrong that this character is taking up so much screen time.
i think female mary sues are hated for their specifically feminine-coded excesses of fantastication (abnormally pretty, eerily desirable, has powers that let her bond with people and animals, the best at nurturing and healing magic, her emotions are powerful, and everyone values her and pays attention to her, etc) which is, as we all know, clearly inferior.
A proper respectable Sue wears a long trenchcoat and a grim scowling face. He carries a bladed weapon to kill his girlfriends with. he is an unfeeling, unkillable badass on the run because of his inner demon (1/2 youma, to be precise) constantly threatening to turn him into the villain he doesn’t want to be. he broods and destroys, broods and destroys.
do NOT attempt to write a female Sue with male Sue characteristics. the male Sue fans will foam at the goddamn mouth even as they fap.
and whatever you do don’t point out the misogynistic elephant in the room that devalues the traits of a girl sue but is totally enamored with a guy hefting around a 40 foot katana that represents a major dick complex while he jumps a thousand feet to attack another dick sword guy with spiky hair and they are both wearing leather
oh. Advent Children, thats a silly movie.
