When people talk about how Lupita is “articulate,” … the lady has an MFA from Yale and speaks 4 languages. Maybe you’re just racist. — Twitter / diannaeanderson (via azspot)
I don’t avoid games that have male protagonists any more than I think men avoid games with female protagonists, and I’m not for a moment suggesting that all games must or should have a female avatar available. All I am saying is that every time I have no choice but to play as a guy, I feel pushed back, just a tiny bit. There’s just this little undercurrent of “This isn’t for you. This isn’t about you. We don’t know you and we don’t think about you. You don’t belong here.” It’s a tiny voice that might not even register if I didn’t play as many videogames as I do, or care about them as much, but over time, it adds up. Over and over and over again. This isn’t about you. This isn’t for you. You don’t belong.
Being able to play Titanfall as a female pilot – a woman of color, no less – is a small detail that means a lot to me. It tells me that I, as a player, matter. That I’m welcome. That I’m invited to play, to get blown to pieces when a rival’s titan goes nuclear, to get jump-kicked in the back, to get sniped by some jackhole camping the Hardpoint, to rodeo the hell out of the other team. — Why Titanfall’s launch trailer made me emotional

Dinner at Khe Yo, where the special was pig’s face. It was amazing. Everyone in NYC should go.
