  6. Cosplayers Recreate “Women Are Too Hard to Animate” Quote at GaymerX

    Boobs are googly, right?

    Hopefully these two cosplayers Anita Sarkeesian found at GaymerX—that's the LGBTQ fan-centric game convention that just wrapped up its second-ever annual event this weekend in San Francisco—will start a nationwide trend of dressing up as the dumb things content creators say about their (lack of) female representation. Now, could someone could loan me a couple of Barbie dolls and a set of prosthetic gills? I have an idea I want to try out at the next con.

  10. The Scarlet Pimpernel and What Superheroes Owe to Baroness Emma Orczy

    The Escapist : The Big Picture : Scarlet Unity - What Assassin's Creed and Batman Have in Common
