  • Person: Scale of 1-10 how dramatic are you?
  • Me: Phantom of the Opera overture

"After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me ‘Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy’ and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy!’ and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more."

- Chris Pratt on the best day of his life.

I get “fake geek girl” BS in job interviews. I have skipped applying for programming jobs because the ads promote the “bro-centric company culture,” where it is common to drink beer and no one complains about your naughty sense of humor. I have applied at companies that won’t interview me for the position that I’m qualified for because the type of programming that I do is more typical for guys and this other type over here that I don’t do is more typical for girls; in order to show how inclusive of women they are, they strongly encourage me to apply for [girl job] despite me being grossly overqualified for [boy job that I can’t be interviewed for]. I have gone to interviews where it is made clear to me that I’m the affirmative action candidate, that they were intrigued by my claim to play video games [which I was tested on], and then had the technical interviewer act astounded because during my whiteboarding exercise, I followed a coding standard that prevents a security breach and no other applicants did— and then not gotten the job. I have had jobs where my opinion was dismissed by my superiors who were less qualified than me, who repeatedly interrupted me during demos to tell me that I’m doing the demo wrong on a product that the interrupter has never used— and then gotten fired for calmly standing up to him.

So let me tell you why there are so few games with strong female protagonists and so few games with characters that women can identify with as idealized heroes: games are made by men for themselves.

Yeah but WHY aren’t there more women in the tech center? Must be because of their genetically weird lady brains AMIRITE?!

We did the math for you. You’re welcome. 
More here. 

and then you have the leftists doing the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” in the background

do you really value your $2 above people making a wage that they can support themselves on. really.

Sorry, the heritage foundation is an arm of the anti-women, anti-gay, anti-trans, Koch Brothers who funded the citizens united ruling and are responsible for some of the shittiest things to ever walk the earth.
I trust their math about as far as I can throw the half a billion dollar building that they are housed in.

Here’s a more reliable source on the estimate cost increase as related related to wage increase, at least for McDonalds.
for those uninterested in clicking through, paying McDonald’s workers $15/hour would result in approximately a $0.22 raise in the price of a Big Mac, for about $31,000 a year at full time. That’s roughly double what minimum wage workers in America receive right now.

People who try to justify treating those barely scraping by as it is like shit and keep them in poverty are assholes. There are no excuses.

so, did you or did you not factor in corporate executives taking a pay cut so their employees can make a living wage instead of forcing consumers to pay more so bob mcD can keep his 6th yacht club membership?
