"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

Matteo Capobianco, aka Ufo5, was born in Novara in 1981. Originally an active member of the Italian writing scene, he gradually began to embrace a more extensive definition of street art while completing his design studies at the Politecnico of Milan.
As a firm believer in the endless possibilities of the mural as a communication tool, Matteo began to experiment with different techniques beyond the restrictions that writing as a codified subculture was putting in place.
Central to Ufocinque’s vision is his layering tehcnique: each element blending traditional painting techniques with a project-oriented attitude in which multiple levels of interpretation are intertwined together. Form is never detached from function as they are sustaining each other to create an effortlessly beautiful world.

For some reason these are really reminding me of sarahreesbrennan's Lynburn books. Maybe all the shadowy magical forset-y-ness? Beautiful art.

The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen.

"What were you wearing?"

I wore a red dress to work today. It has a zipper at either side of my chest that can unzip and reveal a thin strip of skin. A coworker, without warning, tried pulling at the zipper and when it wouldn’t zip, instead revealed a good portion of my collarbone and shoulder as well as my bra strap. An hour later, the same coworker came up and told me to not wear clothes with zippers because he’ll go right ahead and unzip them. I shot back that unzipping me without my permission is sexual harassment. Apparently a manager heard and berated my coworker. At the end of my shift, my coworker told me that my little comment got him in trouble and that he no longer feels comfortable saying anything to me other than “hello” and “goodbye.”

I am supposed to feel guilty for pointing out that he can’t lay his fucking hands on me.

So I wore the infamous dress at work yesterday and ANOTHER MALE COWORKER DECIDED TO PULL AT ONE OF MY FUCKING ZIPPERS.
We were surrounded by other (also male) coworkers (that did nothing) and I swatted his hand away while promptly informing him that he didn’t have permission to touch me.

He then asked, since he knows I cosplay, if it would be any different if I wore a revealing costume. I gave him a dirty look and told him that no matter what *I* decide to wear, no one is allowed “to lay a finger on me unless they want my foot up their ass.”

Being that I’m quite professional at work, they were all surprised by my language and the ferocity with which I spat my promise.

you fucking go girl

I really just want to make a story about fantasy worlds that continue to advance at a technologically consistent rate so like, not urban fantasy which tends to have that “it’s now but there’s a ton of stuff U DON’T KNOW ABOUT” but like, Motorcycle gang dwarves and fashion model elves and wizards of high finance and like everyone standing around a water-cooler and they’re like-

“Who do you think you’re going to vote for this year? I mean King Shelmeth has a birthmark and a prophesy but he’s really strict about goblin immigration and Xarthon the Brave has that magic sword with the crown all on it and stuff but his taxation policies really leave something to desire, you know? And I just don’t know if either of them are really in touch with the fight for ghost rights, you know?”

And they all just sort of nod and mumble and the centaur stamps his hoof but then their boss walks by and they all pretend to be really busy with the copy machine.

I would pay for this book.
