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

B

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...

Breaking the Narrative Episode 15: Cosplay is not Consent? Then Why Did You Jump On Me?

B

So since the past few years have seen a lot of signs talking about cosplay, slut shaming, and groping at various geek culture conventions.

Commenter Rebecca mentioned it in passing in reference to my passing mention of it on the most recent post on male disposability and it occurred to me it was time to put all this disposability...

DAMSELING – Pity Pumping

D

Pity pumping is a tactic that increases victim cred. To use it you first have to have victim cred to increase. If you don’t, if for instance you belong to a group that is designated as non-victims or non-victimizable, it will backfire.
