reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother
one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.

sjw = “social justice warrior”, it’s a term bigots use to gaslight people who care about “issues” (see also: “political correctness”/”PC police” etc) so they can continue to get away with being a walking shitstain.
these games are run by queer/trans people, have lgbtq themes, and/or support pro-equality causes and voices. prime example/target is anita sarkeesian of ‘tropes vs women in video games’ fame, who is #1 on MRA/misogynist’s hit list for successfully raising a lot of money for a feminist-slanted video series on gaming, which got her stalking, harassment, rape and death threats, and even a game made where the objective is to beat the shit of of her face.
#2 is currently a woman called zoe quinn who has been working on a game misogynists don’t like (because she’s a woman being successful their “their” arena), an ex boyfriend has made a stalking blog with inflammatory claims about her sleeping with people to get her game published/reviewed, which of course male gamers have jumped on and proceeded to fabricate evidence, doxx her, threaten her, leak nude photos and out trans friends of hers.
because despite men literally controlling every single industry, these dudes are still convinced there’s a secret feminist/queer conspiracy to take their precious straight white dude characters and ideas and “force” diversity upon them. because truly great games can apparently only be made without the “distraction” of someone not being a cis straight white dude.
basically, the majority of male gamers are ruining gaming communities through bigotry, violence and harassment or by their silence. support indie and mainstream studios alike that make diverse games, and especially support devs of marginalised identities who are potentially more vulnerable to horrific abuse.

- Me: What do you think you're doing?
- Me: I just took off half your health bar, and then you go and do that?
- Me: Yeah, I KNOW I just healed myself.
- Me: It's different when I do it.
