Remember when video games were a hobby and not a political soapbox?
remember when gamers kept complaining about how games weren’t taken seriously as an art form or a medium of their own, and then got whiny when people started taking them seriously and critiquing them as most other art and media is also critiqued?
fuck being complacent about mediocrity
nerdblaster just got nerdBLASTED

Okay I’m crying. Talk about excellence. Peak Black womanhood. ❤
I feel like I’m the only one whose ‘favorite’ time period is the Gilded Age.
Like it was a shitty time for everyone, except rich white boys of course, but the Progressive Era and the busting of the Trusts really fascinates me, especially since its literally 100 years later and we’re basically in the same situation but we’re doing nothing to improve it.
Our daughter Sierra Landry was killed by her abusive ex-boyfriend. An Order of Protection could have saved her life, but according to South Carolina law, she was too young to get one. We’re asking the South Carolina legislature to create “Sierra’s Law,” which would allow people under 18 to get Orders of Protection from abusive partners.
Sierra was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, Tanner Crolley, 18, from Lancaster, SC. The whole relationship was toxic from the beginning. Crolley was controlling, physically/mentally abusive and very manipulative. Every time Sierra left Crolley he would find a way to stalk and harass her. He would continually call her phone, leave messages on Facebook making her feel like everything was her fault, and ride by our home over and over again.
Sierra finally decided she had enough. We were so relieved and so excited that Sierra had ended the relationship she had with Crolley. We were planning a new path in life as a family and for her. But Crolley began calling our home, cussing at us, threatening us, and demanding to speak with Sierra. He would drive by our home every day. No matter where Sierra went, it seemed Crolley was there or not far behind. Sierra would tell Crolley to leave her alone and that they were over, but Crolley would never take “NO” for an answer.
On Monday, December 30, 2013, Crolley told her “If you can’t love me, you will not love anyone!” and shot her in the face and left her to die in a stranger’s yard. We not only lost our daughter, but a lost a piece of us as well.
According to Breakthecycle.org, South Carolina has some of the weakest laws about teen dating violence in the U.S. – reports give us the grade of “F”. South Carolina laws exclude those under the age of 18 who are in dating relationships from accessing Orders for Protection (OP)s, which can save the lives of dating and domestic violence victims.
Sierra’s Law would make many important changes. […]

While taking pictures of the ducks this morning I saw this mink swim across and attack a duck! The duck was lucky and got away at the last second. Sorry for the blurry pictures at the end of the set it all happened really fast.
Tumblr, please read this and signal boost this post.
Missing 11-year-old, Caitlyn Virts was abducted by her father, Timothy Virts, 5 minutes from my house in Dundalk, Maryland (Dundalk is located in Baltimore County, Maryland). Everyone I know has each gotten the Amber Alert on their phones, and are spreading the word all over social media.
Caitlyn’s father abducted her and police think she’s in danger because she is NOT supposed to be with him. The Amber Alert is in association with a homicide of the little girl’s mother, Bobbie Jo Cortez.
A lot of people are calling police whenever they see a black, 1999 Dodge Durango. The actual license plate is 5AJ4458. Caitlyn is described as 5’0”, approximately 80 lbs. and is possibly wearing glasses. Timothy Virts is described as being 6’3” and 280 lbs.

Please spread this like wildfire. C’mon, Tumblr. I’ve seen you do this before.
