Breaking the Narrative Episode 70: Another Series Overview? Mega Man, Addressing Male Disposability and Dehumanization 30 Years and Counting!

Alright, this time around I’m going back to this particular article series’ roots again by jumping on top of something very topical for this past week. I’m going straight back into video game lore. On December 4th on the official Twitch channel for Capcom, CapcomUnity, they did a livestream announcing the future of the Mega Man series with Mega Man 11 – the first new title in the series in 7 years (game collections and cameos don’t count).…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 69: Fucked if We Do, Fucked if We Don’t? Did We Ever Really Have Net Neutrality?

This one may be a little controversial but in the current climate is very very important when looking into the future of the Men’s Rights Movement, Independent Content Creation, and human interaction overall. What I am doing this time around is I’m going to look back on the past two decades of easily accessed consumer level internet and see whether or not this decision of Ajit Pai’s is really getting rid of Net Neutrality or is he simply clearing away a fascimilie of Net Neutrality that was put in place by corporations that wanted a leg up on other corporations so they could more easily shit on us plebs.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 68: Silly Card Trolls, You Aren’t Stopping the Wall!

I’m sure all of you have heard by now about the attempt by the rightsholders of the game Cards Against Humanity trying to block the border wall campaign being pushed by the Trump Administration. This time I’m not going to be debunking a specific article but the concept being promoted by the group in question.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 66: Not Everything is connected to the Alt Right!

This time around I’m actually having difficulty pinning down a specific point of content. There were so many crazy things from this past week to talk about. However I did notice an overlying theme – the dreaded “Alt-Right”.  Whether we are talking about NBC’s delusions about #GamerGate and Discord which Alison has talked about here and I’ve figured out the reasons for their fantasies here.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 61: And You Were Doing So Well! The Escapist Done Goofed!

I’m sure by the title you know which article we are talking about: A “Gamers are Dead” article here in September 2017 (as of this writing). Funny how this just fell right into our laps the usual day I start writing my next weeks articles.…

Breaking an Opinion: Happy GamerGate 3.o! How to Protect Yourself From Bullshit!

I realize that everyone likely saw Hannah’s article on the Ctrl-Left instead of my article last week. No I didn’t quit or get canned or anything silly like that. I actually had quite a bit of personal stuff to deal with so my planned article on breaking the narratives of the GoogleMemo ended up not being possible.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 53: Still Want That Baby Soft Skin Huh? INTACTIVISM NOW!

In approximately 86% of the Western world if you’ve had a son or were born a son during the late 20th century, chances are you’ve been exposed to Male Genital Mutilation, also known as circumcision. Well what if I were to tell you that there is actually a first world country that has both its medical establishment and its citizenry wanting the practice banned?…

Breaking The Narrative Episode 45: Anime Came From Activism?

Welcome once again everyone, this may seem unusual today but I’m not exactly reviewing anything or debunking any particular article. Normally I would put something like this as an article separate from this series, but to be honest I feel what I’m covering today fits into two particular themes.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 35: Anime Feminist, huh? Nazis You Say?

I am not sure if you remember but in September of 2016 I tackled The Mary Sue talking shit about moe anime. Well it turns out that Amelia Cook, author of the piece I debunked there, has her own website known as animefeminist.com, this being an apparent ‘self descriptor.’ Since I’ve fried some bigger fish since then, I thought I’d try to see what hi-jinx this insecure lout has been up to, and I got to say I found some choice material.…

Women’s march: #ButItsAboutEquality!

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the nation’s female population size is 156,964,212. Somewhere between 2.01% and 3.19% of that number participated in the 2017 Women’s March in various cities throughout the U.S. Granted, only 116928594 of the nation’s female population are over the age of 19, but there were also men and children involved in the march.…
