  5. JK Rowling Gets an Eye-Full of Grown up Neville Longbottom, Matthew Lewis Proceeds to Apologize for His Abs & Junk

  11. When Art Targets Marginalized People

    A game was recently removed from Steam, the major platform for PC gaming distribution. It’s a light gun game: a target reticule is all you control as characters pop on screen to shoot. Indeed: Shooting is all you can do. As with all such games, the challenge is in the position and appearance of targets, as well as the type of characters who appear: Some are meant to be shot, some grant bonuses, others result in penalties.
