I ran three miles in under 27 minutes, walked more dogs and now I think I may add vodka to my Gatorade and say “fuck it.”

Cut-off point for platelet count is 75. He clocked in at 78, so chemo is go. And then his surgeon’s office called me about an appointment for Friday for some reason and I’m sure I, like, ruined his mom’s day by telling her that since she thinks she is Head Honcho of Everything and I am so glad I don’t have to deal with this fucked up dynamic for much longer.

How to feel like a mega asshole:

Lay in bed hoping your fiancé texts you to say he’s well enough to do chemo. Legit worried because the nurse apparently had a hard time getting blood out of his finger.

I don’t want him to do chemo or feel shitty. =( But if he does chemo it means he’s done sooner.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry


thisfeliciaday:

This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)
