I would argue that Lemar’s death had little to do with motivating Walker. Of course he had an emotional response, but if anything, Lemar was holding him back from going to lengths he was already motivated to go to. Read more

Yes, Joanna Robinson (Vanity Fair) talked about this on her Still Watching podcast in review of the show. I can’t remember if it was episode 4 or 5 that it was brought up in.

There’s a whole thing about them stealing vaccines that’s seemingly never really referenced again or understood what those vaccines are for (sure, they’re for the camps because the GRC isn’t supplying them, but why make them a very specific plot point?). It sure feels like there was some editing there that lost some Read more

I don’t, but it makes sense because the Flag Smashers plan in the show we got...doesn’t. I rewatched the whole thing over the weekend, and I still have no clue what their actual end goal was.

Oh buzz off, loser. Twitch has been about live-streaming from the chat, and has been about appealing to audiences for what they’re looking like from the start. It began as a live-streaming IRL site, they added video games, and it has moved back and forth being about videogames and about chatting about art and music, Read more

This loop of “women showing up in outwardly male dominated areas and financially succeeding which makes men get super fuckin’ butt-hurt” is just literally never going to end, is it? We’re just destined to do this forever, aren’t we?

The fact that toxic fuck xQc is so popular even after being kicked off of his pro Overwatch team for being racist really doesn’t speak well for humanity.

I loved the crestfallen Civil War theme after the fight with the Dora Milaje when Walker said with complete inadequacy, “They weren’t even super-soldiers.” I thought I was past the point where I could feel bad for the guy, but at that moment I was struck by the fact that everything he has tried to do since putting on Read more

Fascinating to see the Doras in action. (sigh... rest in power, Mr. Boseman). Great to see a little more of Bucky being rehabilitated. Read more

Yeah, I’m actually really surprised how well the actor was able to carry that transformation as I don’t personally think the script for it was that strong. This episode was, but the groundwork before this felt lacking. Yet the actor clearly had enough of knowledge of where it was heading to really make it work.

whats wrong with the “rise in sex work”? Sex work is work, real work, like any other job and is just as valid.

This is so weird to me. its like victim blame-y. Viewers being gross to her or anyone else is on them, not on anyone else. Definitely not on other streamers streaming the way they want. They are not “part of the problem”. as is implied. Read more

If Twitch were to create new sections—especially ones dedicated to adult content—it would risk reinforcing the long-held societal idea that women’s bodies are inherently sexual. Read more

You can be sexy without being sexual,” she said, “and I think that’s where a lot of people have hot tub streams confused. Are bikinis sexy? Yes. But are they sexual? No. Same with low-cut shirts. We are allowed to have unlimited cleavage. Is cleavage sexy? Yes. But is it sexual? No.” Read more

No, that’s what it started as.  It hasn’t been explicitly about gaming for at least 2 or 3 years.  Shit changes.

This feels like yet another one of those easily resolved “If you don’t like it, don’t turn it on” issues.

You go to any swimming pool in the country and you’ll see women in bikinis. Children will be there and will be able to see women in bikinis. This is simply what the swimming pool is. Same with hot tubs, there just aren’t as many hot tubs as there are swimming pools. Read more
