A serious person who takes few things seriously
In this instance, the colors and shapes are too similar, and the textures too different. A bowl of snickers and skittles? No problem. M&Ms and gummy bears? Sure!
Agreed. The two kids are my favorite. Clearly tomorrow’s criminals.
The m&ms and skittles though
Nice! I took a drawing class in college, shadowing was always the tricky part for me; making objects look like they had dimension was tough. Your pears look nicely rounded!
Have you seen this list?
ALL OF THEM.
You know, I like Windows 8, start menu and all. I don’t really use the apps, and I pinned my frequent programs to the taskbar. It doesn’t really feel that different. And, right clicking on the start icon brings up everything else I need.
Hi, I’m also a woman! I think the frustration with this topic is that it is so often approached in the same way, and rarely provides solutions.
This article would be more useful if it said, “White males have a privilege, and they should use that privilege to advocate better treatment of women (and everyone) in the gaming community and beyond.” Instead, it just gives a long list of privileges that is actually an inverted list of the disadvantages women face.
I would prefer more articles advocating respect for all gamers and discouraging discrimination in all forms.
Ditto for me. I think articles surrounding this topic should be appealing to everyone to be more respectful, not pointing out who does or does not have privilege, or who is or is not being discriminated against. Evil spreads when good people do nothing: We can all help turn this around, and give everyone the privilege of respect and decency.
Nope, she isn’t! I often do the same thing. I think there are many girls who would rather not be bothered, and when we don’t bring it up, people assume we are guys. I have been assumed to be a guy many times.
I think these two comments point out something important about this article:
The negative treatment of women is described as a gaming issue. Isolating this issue to gaming doesn’t help to eradicate it, because it is bigger than gaming.
These are societal issues: White males enjoy some privileges, and women should not be subject to objectification and discrimination. In addition, the majority of men find this as appalling as women do. We should be asking, “What provokes men to interact with women in this way?”
I upgraded to Windows 8 on my work computer yesterday, and after setting my desktop background slideshow today, I learned that Windows automatically transitions the color of your active window to match the background… It’s a little distracting, but also quite awesome.
I signed up for Gamefly instead of continuing to buy games outright. It’s a reasonable monthly game budget, and I can play games as they come out without dropping so much money.
