Bryan Singer, X-Men, rape

'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Abusing Underage Boy - TheWrap

tw: link goes to article with graphic quotes from the victim’s complaint. 

I’ve been waiting three fucking years for this movie, and how can I in any kind of good conscience pay money for it, now that I know the director is a rapist? 

(alleged, you might say. legally only alleged. but I am not a court of law, and I believe this boy. so.) 

I’m so angry. I’m angry because another rich white man is probably going to get away with rape. I’m angry because every member of the DOFP cast is going to spend the next six weeks at least talking about how great it was to work with Singer, and they’re going to either say nothing about the charges or worse, some of them will speak up for him.

(I can’t decide if silence is worse than explicit support or defense. I go back and forth on it.) 

it hurts. it hurts me as a fan, and as a rape survivor, and as a human being. it hurts to know these things happen at all, to know that they get brushed aside and shrugged off by the rich and the powerful and privileged. it hurts to wonder what I might know tomorrow. will the day come soon that I can’t trust a friend because they speak in defense of this man? will the day come soon that I can’t trust Ian McKellan, or James McAvoy, because they take the side of a monster?

(on days when the screaming in my head is too loud, it’s movies that I turn to, it’s those faces and voices and stories that help quiet it all down. being a fan is one of the ways that I am able to be a survivor instead of a victim.)

I’m so angry because this news makes me feel helpless. and helpless is exactly what men like Singer want us to be.  

WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS

nobody should go see the new x-men movie and support this asshole pedophile rapist. protest everything to do with it. and remember that there is a ring of child molesters operating in hollywood and they need to be exposed

um so lemme get this straight…tiana starts her own business in a time where black women had next to no rights….mulan pretty much saves china and becomes a top ranking military official….but the annoying sister in frozen makes a throwaway line about being gassy and gets lauded as the the first feminist princess??

WELP

Bacon sucks, pass it on

why the hell are you tagging your hate…?

Someone I follow said that “you have to admit that Snape is the best literary character created in the last 50 years.”

NO.

why is wikipedia saying that the “original femme fatale” is marlene dietrich?

THEDA BARA, PEOPLE!

re: leviathan

i thought bioware learned its lesson with the extended cut

the fans don’t want more goddamn context for the crappy ending

no context in the world erases the fact that the ending completely contradicts the mythology that the games were building over the course of the series

just face it: you made it up as you went along, and then you cover up the contradictions and plot holes using “ARTISTIC VISION” as a blanket excuse

Bioware: Stop telling us that Shepard is supposed to be male (and that the addition of Fem!Shep was to appease female gamers and add the illusion of “choice”) with stuff like this or else commit fully to equal opportunity for Fem!Shep.
Fem!Shep should not be a second thought, she should be treated as equally valid in the series canon and the games’ marketing.

Did you ever think that maybe the Shepard in the save this image is from is a male Shepard?  No?  Of course not.

Kind of difficult, seeing as how I TOOK THIS SCREENSHOT from my own game with a Fem!Shep MYSELF. Next time you want to be a jerk be sure of your facts, moron.

A scientist in Britain made a composite sketch of what Christian Grey would look like using the software that police use to sketch suspects (how apropos!)
This is such a waste of time.
Wow. This is supposed to be “godlike”?
Using descriptions from 12 women who read the book. Who inject their perceptions of “perfect” into their descriptions. So we’re getting 12 women’s ideas of what  Christian Grey looks like.

TOO MUCH FUCKING QUALITY

Frank Scaturro, aka the whitest man I’ve ever met, is running for Congress in Nassau County.

On his About Me page of his website, he lists all of his honors (literally everything he’s ever done), including this:

Frank attended Notre Dame Elementary School in New Hyde Park and graduated with the school’s highest honor

Dude. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. What elementary school has “honors” so important that you had include it as a qualification for being a Congressman?

My professor: "You can’t take Occupy Wall Street seriously because they’re working outside the law"

I’m sorry, I thought peaceful protest was a lawful, successful way of having your voice heard. Yeah, the Tea Party is getting members elected to Congress, but they started out by protesting and annoying the hell out of America. I guess she forgot that.
