Content Warning: This educational episode contains graphic sexual and violent game footage. In this episode we explore the Women as Background Decoration trope which is the subset of largely insignificant non-playable female characters whose sexuality or victimhood is exploited as a way to infuse edgy, gritty or racy flavoring into game worlds. These sexually objectified female bodies are designed to function as environmental texture while titillating presumed straight male players. Sometimes they're created to be glorified furniture but they are frequently programmed as minimally interactive sex objects to be used and abused. Full transcript, links and resources available at: ABOUT THE SERIESThe Tropes vs Women in Video Games project aims to examine the plot devices and patterns most often associated with female characters in gaming from a systemic, big picture perspective.

Women Know Less About Politics Than Men, Especially In Britain, Study Finds Women still know less about politics than men despite progress in sexual equality, especially in Britain, academics have said. A study of 10 nations found an "unmistakable gender gap" even in apparently progressive richer nations. The division was particularly stark in Britain, which was found to have the second-widest gulf in knowledge between the sexes. Women still know less about politics than men, a study has found An in-depth report partly blamed a lack of female faces on television news for putting women off current affairs. Researchers from Goldsmiths, University of London, put a series of multiple choice questions to men and women in Australia, Canada, Colombia, Greece, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Norway, the UK and the US. British men scored an average of 5.8 correct answers out of eight on subjects such as the name of the United Nations secretary general, the national unemployment rate and what job Vladimir Putin did. British women "know less about politics than men".

Genre ! – Je m'interroge, tu t'interroges, interrogez-vous Eg er ikkje dum, eg er eit offer | MadDam | Et bloggkollektiv Gjesteblogger skriver for Maddam i dag Det er lite som provoserar meg meir enn følgjande kommentarar på nyhendeoppslag der ei kvinne har blitt drepen av ein valdeleg partnar: Kvifor stakk ho ikkje? Viss han var valdeleg, må ho jo ha skjønt at han ikkje var noko å samle på! Eg hadde aldri blitt hos ein partnar som slo meg Kva er normaliseringsprosessen? Begrepet normalisering nyttast i mange samanhengar, men i samband med vald mot kvinner nyttast det for å beskrive korleis valdshandlingane gradvis eskalerer, og utvidar grensene for kva som opplevast som greitt i eit forhald. Vi leser i blant om denne prosessen, og kor vanskeleg det er å innsjå at du er inni ein. Ein ny mann i familien Den første gongen var med stefaren min.

Projet Crocodiles Amanda Palmer Gets Naked In Response To Daily Mail Nipple Story When the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid paper covered Amanda Palmer’s recent performance at Glastonbury, they didn’t mention anything about the music that she played, choosing to entirely focus on a brief moment where her breast “escaped her bra”. Palmer wasn’t entirely thrilled about the lack of coverage her performance received and the extent of attention that was paid to her so-called wardrobe malfunction and she has decided to respond to the paper through song. At a performance at London’s Roundhouse on Friday night, Palmer performed a song in response to the tabloid and urged audience members to film it and upload the clip to YouTube so her chosen response could spread.

In one verse, she sings: “In addition you state that my breast had escaped; From my bra like a thief on the run” Here it is:
