So the Community Hub on Steam for the new Wolfestein almost entirely comprised of complaining there is no Online. Because the problem is clearly a mode that will die after 2 weeks because everyone goes back to CoD or TF2 or Titanfall or BF or whatever other hot shit is out at the time.

And I get it RTCW and ET apparently had good multiplayer, but that was over a decade ago and Splash Damage has done absolutely nothing worthwhile since ET.

And allegedly Singleplayer games shouldn’t be full price without 100 hour campaigns or tacked on multiplayer, because god knows Bioshock 2 is the best of the series because of the online that everyone played. And that 1 is worthless because the story is only a 10-20 hours long.

Mustard Race does it again

Okay I’d like to talk about “The Hand That Rocks the Mabel” for a second because this is, I feel, one of the strongest episodes the show has to offer. It dismantles the “Nice Guy” cliche and seems to be strongly against the sexist notion that women are obligated to date men just because they are "nice."

Gideon is emotionally manipulative towards Mabel throughout the entire episode. One of the arguments victim-blamers like to use is, “Well, if the woman really didn’t want to be with him, she could’ve just said no!” What needs to be understood about emotional manipulators is that they purposely make it frustratingly difficult for their victims to say “no.” Guilt-trips, overwhelming kindness even when it’s unwanted, public proposals with an unexpected audience awaiting a happy ending—these are all tactics emotional manipulators use in order to get what they want without appearing to be the “bad guy”, making it easier to turn the blame around on the victim because hey, they were just being nice.

In this episode, Gideon refuses to accept Mabel’s rejections, even though she made it clear she didn’t want to date him. It wasn’t a matter of Gideon “not being able to take a hint” or Mabel “not being direct enough.” It was a matter of Gideon picking up on Mabel’s not-so-subtle hints and deliberately ignoring them. There’s this grossly glorified belief that there’s nothing wrong with constantly pursuing someone who has already expressed their disinterest in you.  That if you try to “win over” a woman hard enough even if she’s already rejected you, eventually she’ll “come around” and everything will work out. Gravity Falls said “fuck that” and had Mabel say “no.” Mabel told Gideon right away that she just wanted to be friends, and despite his persistance (which clearly made her uncomfortable), her desire to be nothing more than friends never faltered. Gideon’s pursuit of Mabel continued even in subsequent episodes (where it was revealed that he was still sending her love letters and wanted her to be his “queen”) and she rejected him every time.

It’s also worth noting that Gideon wasn’t villainized only after he started attacking Dipper; he was villainized from the very beginning. He wasn’t a good guy who turned bad after getting rejected so many times (which would wrongly place the blame of his evil behavior on Mabel)—he was a bad guy from the start because he constantly put Mabel in the position of having to reject him so many times.

This episode is important because Mabel never “came around.” Despite how “nice” his approach was, Gideon’s emotional manipulation didn’t win the girl, and this was depicted positively. That’s why I love this episode so much, because along with the awesome anti-“Nice Guy” overtone, it doesn’t romanticize men continuing to pursue women that have already rejected them.

On a final note, you know what else is fucking amazing about this episode? Gideon is a popular, beloved icon in Gravity Falls. He’s the town darling. Everyone loves Gideon. He’s not a back-alley creep or stereotypically anti-social, nerdy stalker. To the oblivious townsfolk of Gravity Falls, he’s an adorable, charismatic charmer, a miracle-worker, a hero. And he loses in the end. He uses his fame and adoring fans to guilt Mabel into continuing the relationship, even though he’s been told several times that she just wants to be friends, and he is portrayed as the bad guy all the way through.  

This is so fucking important to see in a children’s TV show, all of this is so important.

You seem to be ignoring Dipper, the actual nice guy who likes a girl who dates abusive jerks. And will most likely be rejected…

And take it poorly, and be villianized for it because men are not allowed to be upset at rejection or they are fedora wearing misogynist.

this post had literally nothing to do with dipper lol why would i bring him up

i made this post because i liked how this episode handled gideon and mabel’s relationship, dipper wasn’t even part of the equation

i did, however, make a post about how much of an “actual nice guy” dipper is in the episode “boyz crazy”, if you’d like to give that a read

and for the record, you’re not a misogynist if you get upset over rejection. literally nobody is saying that. we’re not asking you to take pain in stride; by all means, get upset if something makes you upset. it’s when you start turning it around on women (calling them bitches, accusing all women who don’t date you of “only dating assholes”, claiming you were “friendzoned” [vom], etc) that you are misogynistic. 

Except literally everyone is saying that. You sit there and say it’s OK to be upset, but then you list all the ways it’s not OK to be upset? And plenty of girls do the exact same thing to guys, but misandry is fine apparently.

Some women are bitches (Pacifca), Some women only date assholes (Wendy), People do get friendzoned, on both sides of the gender line. Yet for some reason it’s not OK to call women out on it? For what reason? If a girl called out a guy for being a shallow asshole who only dates pretty girls no one would blink an eye at her. And yes people on both sides exaggerate in many cases, but the bad examples don’t factually negate the real ones, as much as tumblr would like you to believe.

I used to think spanking was bad because violence is no way to solve a minor problem.

But I’m 90% sure it turns people into freaky fetish adults so spank away parents

There is House of the Dead: Overkill Porn Parody…

And yet it is still more authentic than the other 2 actual house of the dead movies.

If I’m not allowed in the fucking club I’m just gonna leave. Fuck that.

good. stay away from our safe spaces.

Public forums are not safe spaces. No place on the internet is a safe place. 

and it’s your job to see to that i take it.

Oh you’ll take. I see to that you take it.

Hell, if straight people want to hang with me I’m not going to treat them like garbage. Tumblr SJWs love this black and white us vs them mentality that I find idiotic.

They’re not talking about “hanging out together”, dude.  It’s not about “Tumblr SJWs” being the irrational crazies you and others think they are. This is about people wanting and needing a place for themselves.

They’re talking about safe spaces, havens they can be/say/do/love how they wish without the fear of facing the persecution and abuse and worse they get from the rest of the world-at-large every day because the rest of the world isn’t allowed in those havens to even potentially start such things in the first place.

One of them is called cisfreefuture and thinks they should go by cat pronouns. But sure. These are rational people.

… I never said they were ALL shining examples of rationality…

They also want to go by void pronouns.

Thing is, this safe space idea seems less about talking and more about not wanting to listen. We live in a country were free speech is a basic right, one of the very most important ones. In other countries I can understand the frustration but here it isn’t as applicable. The idea that some of these people think you can turn the internet of all places into a safe space baffles me.

Everyone will have an opinion and nobody can or should stop that. It prevents growth, it prevents understanding. Everyone should be allowed a voice. Is everyone going to agree with everyone? No. You put three people in a room and a dozen opinions will form. Segregating yourself from the rest of the world does nothing but narrow your worldview. I mean hell, the internet is this amazing tool that lets you see across the world, listen to people, just so amazing. I’ve learned so much from it, from people, from opinions. I think isolating yourself from the world just because you only want to speak does nothing to help anyone.

If you want a safe space, get the fuck off the internet, nothing is sacred.
