reddfoxxthepoet: the harassment gamers have faced goes back to the 80's... This is nothing new

ah yess i remember those days myself… gamers needed an escort to get into an arcade…. had to walk past lines of screaming fanatics holding signs who would throw quarters at them… the courts had ruled that arcades were technically legal but congress did everything in its power to restrict them …. until most gamers had to drive to another state to find them… or risk their lives using their own consoles at home…

Oh my God.

Americans have a better chance of being shot by the police or a toddler with a gun than contracting Ebola. Can we please dial down the media hysteria?

Here’s a series of Norman Rockwell inspired “Saturday Evening Post” cover art that features some classic DC Comics heroes and villains. The art was created by DeviantArt user OnlyMilo a.k.a. Ruiz Burgos.

If someone points at your black clothes and asks you whose funeral is it, a look around the room and a casual “haven’t decided yet” is always a good response.

John Grisham: men who watch child porn are not all paedophiles - Telegraph 

kyriarchy:

myjawislikeashovel:

Reminder to always illegally obtain copies of Grisham’s books if you hate yourself that much, but just stop buying this shit stain’s books.

We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child,” he said in an exclusive interview to promote his latest novel Gray Mountain which is published next week.

"But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn."

Those poor sixty year old white men, going too far and masturbating to the rape of a child :(((

The author…cited the case of a “good buddy from law school” who was caught up in a Canadian child porn sting operation a decade ago as an example of excessive sentencing.

"His drinking was out of control, and he went to a website. It was labelled ‘sixteen year old wannabee hookers or something like that’. And it said ‘16-year-old girls’. So he went there. Downloaded some stuff - it was 16 year old girls who looked 30.

"He shouldn’t ’a done it. It was stupid, but it wasn’t 10-year-old boys. He didn’t touch anything. And God, a week later there was a knock on the door: ‘FBI!’ and it was sting set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to catch people - sex offenders - and he went to prison for three years."

I hope John Grisham knows that by adding in that bit about the 16 year olds “looking older” than they are, he is sounding exactly like a pedophile. 

Instead of buying John Grisham’s shit books, consider instead staring blankly at a wall of drying paint—it will be a better use of your time.

prisons are actually full of young men of color for nonviolent drug offenses but he’s worried about crusty old white pedophiles. ok.

don’t even get me started on the implication that sexually exploiting 16 year old girls “isn’t so bad” compared to 10 year old boys. I guess it’s harder to write them off as “wannabe hookers”.
