Ellas también juegan, o por qué el machismo gamer no tiene ningún sentido "Bolleras", "feminazis", "attention whores". Estos y otros adjetivos peores tuvieron que soportar las creadoras del fanzine digital True Gamer Girls cuando este vio la luz hace un par de semanas. Impulsada por varias mujeres relacionadas con el mundo del videojuego, la publicación surgió como respuesta humorística a una revista bastante demencial llamada Gamer Girls, cuyo tema de interés se reduce básicamente a pornografía + consolas. A pesar de que la intención del fanzine era paródica y su acabado bastante inocente, y que también recibió mucho apoyo de medios y público, hubo quien no le vio la gracia. Y entonces empezó el troleo.

Journal d'une Grosse qui Réfléchit - Françoise Leclère Dans la presse à propos du Journal d'une Grosse qui réfléchit Le Monde Magazine, 29 avril 2011 par Catherine Vincent L Mag, mai 2011 par Jacqueline Pasquier CAS LIBRE - Emission du 21 avril 2011, Rapport aux poids Télécharger l'émission Thèmes abordés The XX Factor Thanks to the BuzzFeed quiz, we now all know which city we should live in (Paris), what kind of sandwich we are (grilled cheese), and which Twin Peaks character we are (Agent Dale Cooper). BuzzFeed quizzes exploit our urge to belong, to categorize ourselves into an identifiable group that we are instantly a part of. (Oh, you’re a Miranda? Me too!) Which is why the latest BuzzFeed quiz, “How Metal Is Your Period?”

In defense of the sanctimonious women's studies set. On Monday night, Donald Trump’s wife Melania touched hearts as she addressed the Republican National Convention, sharing the lessons she learned growing up as a black girl on the South Side of Chicago. As first spotted by journalist Jarrett Hill, Melania’s speech bore more than a passing resemblance to another speech at another convention about eight years ago — Michelle Obama’s 2008 address to the Democratic National Convention. The cribbed portion discussed the values that Michelle and Melania apparently share, including working hard for what you want in life and keeping your word.

It’s been a welcome distraction from news filled with stories of urban protests against police violence and continued assaults on women’s reproductive rights. Battles once considered fought and won are again bitterly contentious. The 1967 Kerner Report on the despair inducing conditions prevalent in many cities reads as if written weeks, rather than decades, ago. State and national legislators propose—and pass—all manner of legislation that eats away at women’s freedom to make decisions about our own bodies. Miss Fulton’s life spanned nearly a century.

Le joueur de jeux vidéo moyen est un homme de 31 ans inactif Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par William Audureau Le Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC), qui finance une partie de la production française, a publié mardi 18 novembre une nouvelle étude sur la consommation de jeux vidéo des Français, dont un résumé illustré est en ligne ici. Celle-ci arrive à la conclusion que « la population de joueurs de jeux vidéo (tous types de jeux vidéo) est plutôt masculine, jeune, inactive et parisienne ». Au sens classique de l'Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques (Insee), les inactifs sont « les personnes qui ne sont ni en emploi ni au chômage : jeunes de moins de 15 ans, étudiants, retraités, hommes et femmes au foyer, personnes en incapacité de travailler… ». L'enquête a été menée en ligne par TNS Sofres entre le 13 et le 25 septembre 2014 auprès d'un échantillon représentatif de 2 800 Français.

INTERVENTIONS ET ACTIONS DE L'ASSOCIATION MÉMOIRE TRAUMATIQUE ET VICTIMOLOGIE EN NOVEMBRE - DECEMBRE 2014 1- le 3 novembre à Paris (75) Pôle formation du Centre Monceau Conséquences des psychotraumatismes et soins psychothérapiques aux victimes Cette formation est assurée par la Docteure Muriel Salmona, psychiatre, psychotraumatologue et Sokhna Fall, thérapeute familiale, victimologue et ethnologue. Les conséquences psychotraumatiques des violences, leur impact sur la santé psychique des victimes restent méconnues et mal prises en charge. Les cursus universitaires n'accordent qu'une très faible place à cette clinique, malgré les intuitions précoces de la psychanalyse, les connaissances cliniques des états de stress post-traumatiques, et les avancées récentes des recherches en neurobiologie.

The Happy Feminist: FEMINISM 101 Feminism is not a monolith, nor is it a dogma. The only thing you have to believe in order to call yourself a feminist is that ensuring women's freedom and equality of opportunity in all spheres of life is a crucial priority. That's it. Feminists all work from that basic axiom, but aside from that we are an incredibly diverse group. We are diverse in five ways: 1) We come from every conceivable background and life experience.

Ms Magazine Blog NEWSFLASH: N.Y. Fast-Food Workers to Get $15 Minimum Wage by Julia Robins · July 24, 2015 · 1 Comment “You cannot live and support a family on $18,000 in the State of New York, period,” said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) this week. “That’s why we have to raise the minimum wage.” The Curvature The gender inequality in core gaming is worse than you think Statistics show that almost 50 percent of all gamers are women, but this information doesn’t tell the whole story. Gender inequality in the core video game audience is not only still rampant but even worse than we realize. The Entertainment Software Association’s 2013 “Essential Facts About The Computer And Video Game Industry” report breaks the gamer audience down by gender to 55 percent male and 45 percent female. This never sounds right to me when I read or hear it, in part because I constantly hear and read commentary about depictions of women in video games and how the video game industry is dominated by male perspectives.

Can the Julien Blanc problem be solved with … more patriarchy? One misogynistic douchebag says yes. Patriarchy: Also good for protection against hell lizards. One favorite tool in the misogynist’s toolkit is the old “if women want to be protected from violent men it proves they need patriarchy” argument. It’s a rather silly argument, but those making it tend to do so with enormous smugness, feeling that they’ve got the ultimate “gotcha” to use against feminists.
