That's not pain, IT'S WEAKNESS LEAVING YOUR BODY  :lulz:

Talk about coincidence, I came across the same guy yesterday, surfing for truther shit to freak out my more gullible friends with and from the couple of clips I watched, plus this one I reckon all his stuff prolly runs a similar course of descent into derangement  :lulz:

i had been avoiding this story in the news, mainly because i honestly didn't see what the problem with it was. I feel like the video makes a few good points, yet towards the end the nerdrage shorts out his frontal lobe and he starts hammering his points like a caveman. Towards the end he charges right past the fact that sexualizing woman is OFTEN used to dehumanize women,

How do you tell the difference though?

And really, this hits on the big thing. The problem isnt sexualization, its the dehumanizing, the objectifying. People like to go after the former because its easy to spot and thanks to our puritan heritage lots of people have a knee-jerk discomfort with it which of course, is completely in the interest of progressiveness and freedom ect when they do it. The later is a lot harder to talk about, a lot harder to condense into 140 characters or memes, and worst of all most people just simply dont care.

You're right, it is the objectification and not the sexualisation that is the issue.

For instance if Milo had written the book as well she would probably fuck her way across new york and no one would bat an eyelid.

But using his cover for what is otherwise supposed to be a superhero comic is using that sexual imagery to sell the story which is unfair to the character.

There is always the argument that marvel never considered it, Milo is a brilliant artist and comic companies often celebrate the work of famous artists these variant covers and that's all it was. However even if this is the case they probably shouldn't be so negligent when they are very much in the spotlight for their lack of female creators, (they have one or two, which is better than none so things are improving).

Why is lack of Female creators a bad thing?
Because comic book readers gender is split pretty much 50-50, though the female creators only account for an a tiny set of the creators.
In theory this shouldn't be an issue, a skilled male creator should be able to cater to a male and female audience (and some do). In practice, you get a majority of comics who's target audience is young men.

Which its female readers apparently have no problems buying.

Of course, Obama's plan is to use ISIS as a causus belli to overthrow Assad, but nevertheless, the plan wont work.  The Syrian rebels are currently scrambling to sign truces with ISIS to fight Assad (which should be a clue) and if Assad does fall...well, who are the most powerful group in that region after Assad, again?  Clue: ISIS are currently expanding their territory around Aleppo, while the FSA are struggling to stay alive.

My hypothesis is that if they're left alone, they'll be cutting each other's throats inside of 180 days.

Or they'll fuck with the Turks and/or Jordanians, which seems to be the unbeatable level in that particular game.

Probably, on the left alone bit.  Problem is, a crazy cult of death squad Sunnis are too useful to be left alone.

I doubt they'd go for Turkey, since there appears to be a bit of covert support there (lots of their logistics is based in Turkey, it seems).  But yeah, picking on Jordan wouldn't be smart.  I don't know who it is over there who knows what their doing (it's most definitely not King Playstation), but they seem to be doing it well.

This, also, rubs the wrong way.
