"So I was on newgrounds.com today, and being bored as I usually am, I decided to start playing strip snap with a pig-tailed blonde named Caitlin. Evidently she's the only one who strips in the game but I guess that makes things a whole lot easier given she can't actually see me."

ginmar on the subpar fantasy/adventure film phenomenon:

Obviously Dragonstorm was the sign of a new school of movie making: the tax write off movie. Maybe movie studios have to pay a fine or something if they have any money left over at the end of the year, so they grab all the extra costumes, concepts, and actors they just couldn't use for anything, shove them all together on a set, and hope for the cinematic equivalent of a million monkeys typing.

Raptors: Scary dinosaurs, or the scariest dinosaurs?

good_odds would like you all to know about velociraptors.

She has a lot to say about velociraptors. I could only quote one part. But there is much, much, much, much, much more.

THE RAPTORS TOOK OUT SAMUEL L. JACKSON, MAN. SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKIN’ JACKSON!!! THE SNAKES COULDN’T EVEN TAKEN OUT SAM JACKSON, BUT THE RAPTORS DID. DO YOU THINK ANY T-REX COULD – OR FUCK, WOULD – KILL SAMUEL L. JACKSON??? NO!!! NO, HE WOULD NOT, BECAUSE ONLY A RAPTOR IS HEARTLESS, SOULLESS AND EVERYTHING ELSE-LESS ENOUGH TO EVEN THINK ABOUT KILLING SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKIN’ JACKSON!

The buttkicking author libba_bray on the erosion of womens' rights

I am a lifelong feminist. I have never shied away from using that identity. It's amazing to me that that one small word can so frighten people. It's like saying, "I pulp babies and drink their blood from Club Med margarita glasses." To me, being a feminist says to the world that you know who you are--a woman--and you will not apologize for it. It says that, being half the population of the earth, you feel entitled to certain kooky things, like power over your own body and your medical choices. The same pay for the same work. Equality. Justice. The right not to be stoned to death in a public square. It's a powerful word, feminist. Perhaps that is why everyone from the religious right to self-loathers like Ann Coulter try so hard to discredit it, to paint it with a wash of disdain, to make women feel shame in the word. I refuse to allow them to take my identity from me so easily. Let me say it again: I. Am. A. Feminist.

I remember once describing what I do. "I write for teen girls," I said proudly.
"Oh," was the condescending response. The tone was clear--why did I want to waste my time writing that girly stuff for such an insignificant audience? Girls. I mean, jeez, they don't matter.
(It was tempting to reach into his chest and pull out his beating heart with my bare hands, but I'd just spent $15.00 on a manicure.)
