    Sorry for the awkward title, but the actual title really undersells what is honestly some of the best work out there documenting and interpreting internet history. Essential viewing if you want to understand the development of reactionary garbage on the internet and the foundation of the myth of the wildly unreasonable "SJW" on absolute bullshit...basically memeing itself into existence.

    The beginning of this is mostly focused on a humorous look at Old Tumblr as the title implies, but this is really serious and necessary work.

    This captures why I stopped reading the manga better than anything else, and also recognizes the complications that make it so hard to talk about the fascist subtext throughout the series.

    Also generally more activity in ~anime and ~books, which I should really contribute more to myself.

    Realized that one of my favorite projects hasn't been posted here before. There's a lot of emotionally heavy and potentially triggering stuff on here, as you can imagine given that it attempts to log every part of the queer experience. That said, it's also blindingly beautiful.

    It said not to, actually, and I don't think it was just to cover their ass. To me it seemed more like the idea was to do legally distinct things from Nintendo IP and watch as they got hit with them anyway.

    Either way, this was lovely.

    Saying it's the result of homophobia in a context like this doesn't mean "this person is hating on The Gays," but instead "this action happened as a result of social norms and expectations which are heteronormative and built on assumptions that either exclude The Gays or otherwise work against them".

    It'll be nice when silly shit like this has gone away so we can talk about the issues with violence in games without the instant association to this.

    And unfortunately are the main two I meant with the transphobia problem :/ I might go back to the BBC if I have no other options, but I'd rather not.

    It's a bit too much, for sure. That said, it did get the point across in a way that's a lot more memorable and emotional than just mentioning it, so I get it.

    I do feel like Ellis is sometimes a bit too willing to go in with making jokes out of just how bad something is. I appreciate that it means she doesn't tiptoe around awful shit, but it does occasionally come off in a way that'd probably be fine to do around a specific trans friend or something but is a bit flippant given how public it is. While I and a lot of other trans people I know are cool with it, I think I'd probably avoid showing this to certain friends for that reason. Minor in the grand scheme of things, of course.
