The Earth’s Seasonal “Heartbeat” From Outer Space
John Nelson is known for building extremely complex visualizations of weather patterns. But his latest creation is a simple animated GIF of 15 frames from NASA’s cloudless satellite photography collection. It’s essentially a year in the life of Earth.
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?

please really strongly consider your life choices before you draw fanart that basically romanticizes an incredibly tragic and awful situation???
maybe the best vine ever
Stop mistaking harmless ignorance as downright disrespect, not everyone in the goddamn world is educated of the 500000+ different gender identities. You spend 99% of your time sitting on your ass browsing a website built from the ground up on social justice concepts; don’t expect others to be aware of the deep abyss of the gender universe when some people aren’t even aware that gender and sex are two different things.
Puppies discovered a new part of the yard!
look at these lil guys. this what life all about, man
Christopher Hart - Drawing Cutting Edge Anatomy
Found this on my harddrive, I’m not sure if I downloaded the pdf as a joke or as legitimate help. But copy-pasting the same body for a woman is /not/ how you draw. I was scrolling through this with pretty good hopes that this was going to be a decent explanation of the comic medium in general and how anatomy can be pushed without falling into Esher girl territory.
Take most “Lets draw design comic characters” books with a huuuge grain of salt.
i like that basically u can see whats wrong with the way we view women just right here in “body shapes”
this is absolutely ridiculous
SEXISM IS OVER
This was submitted to me, but I’ve actually already posted this before, but it doesn’t hurt to reblog this for anybody who’s missed it. :)
Diversity. By Christopher Hart.
I never understood why cops ask questions like:
"Do you know why I’m standing here?"
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Do you know why I’m here?"
Like, figure out your spatial, existential issues elsewhere, bruh.
Pssst spoilers for real life: It’s because they’re trying to get you to self-incriminate. Always respond to such questions by reflecting the question respectfully.
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Why did you stop me, Officer?"
