JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit
for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please
Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.
See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.
Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?
nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa.
I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.
Just my 2 cents
JonTron just keeps digging himself further and further into the shit parade.
graveyarddirtlook at what this bear did omg
I love how the bear goes straight back to eating its fruit and vegetables after rescuing the bird, but I love that little corvid body wiggle the crow does once it drops the playing dead routine even more.
Thanks for the link, christopheralopez. <3
seeing that stores are already putting Halloween stuff out

And all done! If you haven’t been following along today, here’s some rambling:
Spears of the Dawn is an African inspired fantasy RPG, using old school D&D style mechanics to run games in a fantasy world based more on African legends and cultures than the European styles of most fantasy stories/games.
To encourage people to make more African inspired games/whatever, the creator Kevin Crawford put all of the art into the public domain. You can get it all here.
I decided it would be fun to take a crack at coloring some of the artwork, which is all black and white line art. These might end up in the Clockworks rpg book some day, as there are a few cultures inspired by parts of Africa, or it might just be as a thing to do when I want to art but don’t have an agenda or client or goal besides making a cool thing.
This first one is a street scene by Andrew Krahnke. I’ve included his original line art here, as well as some of the steps towards my final color version. This is I think the first time I’ve ever colored someone else’s line art, and I’m pretty happy with how it came out.
