Pokemon and Gender
Hello, Jenni here! So, I absolutely fucking LOVE pokemon. Seriously, I love the pokemon games, they’re not my favourite games, but they’re damn close. With that out of the way, there are a few things I’ve noticed regarding the way the pokemon games express certain gender roles. First a little background info. Gender appears in pokemon games both with humans (trainers and such)...

absurdlyawkward: So one time long, long ago in a land far, far away… (and by that I mean 4 years ago in my extremely liberal hometown..which makes the fact that this was said even more scary) someone in my class said this.

Laci's Guide to Carpet Munching →
Hello, Jenni here! I just read and replied to this Laci Green bit: http://lacigreen.tv/sexplus/sexuality/4502-problems-with-the-kinsey-scale And decided to repost my response here, because I think it shows a bit how complicated sexuality actually gets. My biggest issue with the kinsey scale is that it ignores quite a few factors that influence one’s sexual identity.. Ones own gender, for...

Hello, Jenni here. I’ve noticed that a lot of people consider certain topics “Off limits” when it comes to criticism, and especially to jokes. Personally, I believe no idea should be above criticism. Criticism is what makes things better - if no one exposes the flaws in something, then they will be ignored. This even applies to “sacred” ideas like religions,...
