These Worlds of Ours






smashsurvey:

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 regularlyhow 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? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

One thing I would like to make note on that D&D did with Sansa that I appreciated is her ability to sit through the “War of the Five Kings” farce of a show. It’s hard to illustrate mental strength in a medium like television (or at least while keeping it interesting.)…

Via nothing is real

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.

ladydarthcaedus replied to your post “i know wookieepedia lists her as jaina solo fel but has she ever been…”

yeah, not listed elsewhere afaik. and Jaina doesn’t seem like the sort to take her husband’s last name anyways…

i feel like star wars precedent pretty strong suggests that she will

I haven’t read them, but I feel she is probably referred to as JSF in the two Insider shorts by Golden set after her wedding (one is their honeymoon and I forget what the second is about).
