We knew early on that we wanted the new edition to be inclusive: inclusive of beloved material from previous editions, inclusive of different play styles, and inclusive of a varied cast of characters. We also wanted to be welcoming to as many D&D players as possible, to look at the wonderfully diverse group of people who play the game and say, “There’s a place for each of you at the game table.”
…A number of RPGs over the years have featured similar inclusivity, and we thought, “D&D is going to do it too, and is going to do it boldly.”

rogue machines | bbc sherlock, the cyberpunk au
sherlock holmes is the only human debugger in the world, skirting the heart of the city, specially trained to pick out flaws in the grid that cyborgs cannot. certainly, he has been fine-tuned with the latest hardware, but what’s to be done when the unit lacks an off switch? cyborgs can be controlled, they say. you can’t predict a human. what they don’t know is that he’s never quite known if the electricity pumping through his veins belonged to one or the other.
he and ex-squadron doctor john watson form a companionship, traveling the streets crime has not yet forgotten.
but the moriarty glitch is silent, begins as patterns of numbers woven into the strand, an error that cannot be purged, a locked door swinging open. little does sherlock know that the grid isn’t the only network out there, and the glitch and he are more alike than they may seem…

Jason Momoa and Manu Bennett at Florida Super Con
Those two are both Maori, right? And they are goofily pulling semi-haka-referential moves in these photos, right?
Jason Momoa is Hawaiian, raised in Iowa. Manu Bennet is Australian/Maori (Ngāti Kahungunu and Te Arawa, which is tangentially related to my Iwi).
Manu in particular is referring some classic intimidation poses, especially the tongue (A lot of Maori tribes have a cool genetic trait where the connective skin underneath their tongue is much smaller, or not there at all, to further the intimidation. Mine goes out super far!), and Jason could be doing the same, or referring to native Hawaiian intimidation poses, which I am not familiar with.
A lot of the pacific island cultures are connected and have their own Hakas, Samoan, Fijian, Vanuatan, Tongan and more, all with different names. The one Manu is most likely referencing is Ka Mate, Te Rauparaha’s Haka (also my Iwi/tribe!), the most well known one, which looks like this.
This has been your daily dose of OH MY GOD SOMEONE IS TALKING ABOUT MY TINY COUNTRY LET ME IMMEDIATELY TELL YOU EVERYTHING I KNOW.
When they offered me this position, I asked myself what you’d do. I thought you’d take the chance to make things better.
you can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness

The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
i have a point to prove to my mom. i want 6 million or more notes. maybe then she will stop acting like someone caused me to “think” this. or that it’s the same as being gay.
