wait wait okay, nemo in latin means nobody…so the real name of the movie is finding nobody…so that means nemo wasn’t even real but just something that was part of marlin nemo’s dad’s imagination. He just unintentionally made up nemo to cope with the loss of his wife and his almost children.
The first article was published in Joystick (a French gaming magazine), and I FUCKING CAN’T BELIEVE IT WAS ACTUALLY PUBLISHED. Rape apology, machismo glorification and a lot of condescending paternalism.
So the link leads to a great written response and commentary from a blogger/gamer.
Some comments are really heinous and violent, both on the blog and on the author’s twitter. As you must know, of course, when a woman say something non consensual, it obviously means that she’s a man-hating fascist lesbian, or a sex-starved slut. Real women don’t play video games anyway, they belong in the kitchen.
I’m sick of this overwhelming sexism. As a woman, yes, as a nerd, of course, but above all as a bloody human being. This is about feminism, right, but more than anything this is about humanism. Really, who wants to live in a world where femalse are either weak-sweet-dumb-loving simpletons or over-sexualized-bitchy-unbearable whores?
So, yeah. I’m appalled when I read this kind of “women-are-objects-if-you-don’t-agree-you-deserve-to-be-butt-raped-shut-up-man-hating-bitch” filth, and outraged when people laugh about it like it is not a serious problem.
And for the record, no, I really don’t think that all men deserve to be raped, killed or castrated. Just the kind that write woman-hating rag. And factually, this kind is half male half female.
I’m helping lethy translate this so that our non french followers can read it.
if i was famous i’d just tour around the country without telling anyone and go to random college campuses late at night, and i’d wait until i saw one person walking by themselves and i’d walk behind them and put my hands over their eyes and say guess who and when they turned around it’d be me and they’d be like omg and then i’d say “no one will ever believe you” and i’d just sprint off into the moonlight
