"No one will miss me", "I’m better off dead"

after-crisis:

When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"

his donation was once his child’s allowance.

I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.

Games.On.Net does what I wish more companies would do: deals in common sense and reality and stops treating people who are threatened by equality as if they have a valid argument.

just gonna drop a link to the whole thing because it’s great

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

Ah, the classic “no you see I prefer to play a female character, so really I’m on your side” argument. How about go fuck yourself, because just because you play a female character as a dude does not mean you get to shit on women when they mention their under-representation in the gaming industry. Playing a female character =/= knowing what it’s like to be a woman or able to speak about what women should or should not criticize.

It bugs me because that’s just how game development works and these people don’t seem to understand. When creating a game with multiracial and gender protagonist options a white human male is always the default. Not because of sexism but because that’s where the rest of the race and gender design stems from.  (emphasis mine)

Wow. A serious case of someone talking straight out of their privileged ass. 
Dude later goes onto to say that he only meant the women who complained rudely or snarkily that the Inquisitor was male and those are the people he was speaking about, not everyone. That’s what’s ridiculous - being rude or snarky about it, instead of openly constructive and polite. Meanwhile, he’s riding the throne of hypocrisy with his ending statement that those rude and snarky complainers: “that’s F***ing ridiculous”. 
We don’t get to be rude, but he does.
You know, I could really give less of a rats ass where the modeling starts. It doesn’t bother me that a human male is modeled first ‘cause that’s literally one of the first things done in a game - beginning to model your assets. Gotta start somewhere. But at the point in the state, our newly modeled male is not a white male until some textures are applied to him. 
But then excusing it as a template and the trailer is only reflecting that? When the game is nearly finished, has a release date, and enough gameplay footage that a female inquisitor could definitely have been used in addition to a male inquisitor? No.
Am I upset a female wasn’t shown? Sure, but not surprised, and only privately (until this post). But they could have a trailer coming with a female inquisitor. We don’t know. Box art is seemingly gender neutral. Cassandra was featured pretty heavily in the trailer as well.
Marketing decisions are crazy and tend to take the safe route - and the ‘safe route’ is generic white male. And that is because of ingrained cultural sexism and racism. That the default is always without question a white male is the product of ingrained sexism and racism, and to say otherwise is completely ignorant.
You know? I almost want to see BioWare market their next game with a variable gender protagonist completely with the female version. Not because I think it’s my due or would make strides in the right direction and be ambitious (it would) but because I think the reaction of all these ‘allies’ would be great to watch unfold.

Reblogging for the awesome response to derptastic ignorance.

Bolding my own. Also would like to point out that I would have played the first Mass Effect YEARS before I did if any of their marketing AT ALL reflected that you could customize the main character. 
Seriously. A player character that I can customize is literally the single biggest thing I look for when I’m choosing a new video game, and I *know* I’m not alone. So don’t tell me it’s smart marketing to only show dudebro PCs. It’s them deliberately narrowing their audience when they could be widening it.

You know "I wish I had a British accent" implies there are multiple British accents i.e I wish I had a cat implies I wish to have one cat out of the many cats that exist. For a country that came up with this language you sure aren't very familiar with it.

Answer:

youknowyourebritishwhen:

Yes, but when people say ‘British accent’ they’re generally talking about Standard Southern British English (SSBE) or Recieved Pronunciation (RP), rather than say, Scouse or Geordie. Ask any non-Brit to do a ‘British accent’ and 99% of them will aim for SSBE or RP.

But nitpicking aside, I actually just thought it was a pretty neat linguistic map infographic.

[What? We aren’t familiar with the English language? This confuses me because why would anyone from England (the place that invented the language) or anyone else from the British Isles write that they want to have a British accent??? They’ll already have one??? (In conclusion: It’s not Brits that write that so nothing to do with us not understanding written English)]

My goal with Inquisition is to have stuff that people don’t find. I actually sent out a little demand: every single level must have at least one cave no one ever tells me to go in. No quests, no pointers, nothing. I don’t care where you put it: I don’t want to know where it is! Obviously, the team took that to heart and went even further.
