Weekend Reading List: I will never stop talking about witches

tumblr_nc68pmj3oi1qe079ho1_1280

  • HERMIONE GRANGER AND THE GODDAMNED PATRIARCHY. [Buzzfeed]
  • I watched the first episode of a web show called Peacekeepers, about a mysterious entity who hires people to stop deaths, sending them where they need to go via text, and it’s pretty intriguing. Give it look.
  • There a new documentary out called She Makes Comics, and it’s all about the history of women in the comics industry, and what we can expect going forward. Bitch has all the info you need.
  • Okay so the tendency of female fans to fetishize slash pairings (the non-canon relationships between two male characters) is something I’ve thought a lot about (and even touched on briefly before), and the Mary Sue has a good starting off point that I hope leads to greater discussion.
  • Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from Buffy for those not in the know) heard that Jay, a huge fan of his, was trans and bummed about only having mis-gendered pictures and autographs, so he invited him to come hang out with him on his farm for the day. Jay blogged about the whole thing on Tumblr, and it’s great.
  • Okay so I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t had time to read this for myself, but Autostraddle wrote about a new webcomic called Witchy and it looks so cool!
  • Here’s an essay on the importance of Star Trek: Voyager to a young, nerdy girl, and it really lays out why I still love the series, despite the fact that there have been much better Star Trek shows. [io9]
  • This last one’s a little hard to describe, but just go with me on this one and click through. You think you’re getting a regular old game review, but it’s the insane, sweeping, hilarious introduction that functions as a great takedown of extreme “ethics in games journalism” that you’ll want to read.

Sometimes I neglect you for a week, but then there is so much new content when I get back that you have no choice but to forgive me, right? Right:

Weekend Reading List: Night witches and world-changing kisses

assasins-creed-unity-release-date-ps4-xbox-one-578-80 copy copy

And the almost requisite video game content!

  • Lesbian kisses change the world, you guys! The New Yorker has the story of how an unplanned lady kiss got The Sims made, and it’s such a fun idea that I’m not even going to let “I guess straight guys that make sports games loved the idea of controlling two lesbians” ruin my mood.
  • Final Fantasy XIV will also be allowing same-sex relationships in the game. [Kotaku]
  • There’s a new Feminist Frequency video out! This time the incomparable Anita Sarkeesian takes on “Women as Background Decoration” in her “Tropes vs. Women in Games” series.
  • There’s a Bea Arthur game. THERE’S A BEA ARTHUR GAME. (And no, my excitement doesn’t stem from the fact that I just watched the Golden Girls series finale and sobbed like a little child. Don’t be absurd.) [NewNowNext]
  • In a super disappointing, eyestrain-causing (due to the overzealous rolling of said eyes) move, Ubisoft won’t be including any female protagonists in Assassin’s Creed Unity because “women are too difficult to animate.” Autostraddle has info about the initial shitshow, GameSpot talks about a former Ubisoft developer who’s poking major holes in the company’s excuse that adding playable women would have added a significant amount of work, The Escapist explores the game’s French Revolution setting and why, historically-speaking, women should actually be included, and #WomenAreTooHardToAnimate over on Twitter is great.
