What’s up Readers
You know a topic has to have gotten my “rawr!” flowing for me to put up a blog post. I know I’m horrible at it. I write them a lot in my brain but just never get them onto here. Welp, I have read an article recently that got me so fired up not only did I talk about it today on the Plucky and WooWoo show with my co-host but, I am also writing a blog post about it.
We’re always balls out on The Mind of DCS, my readers should know that by know. If you’re new welcome! Be aware I often come into a topic with a very different perspective on things, sometimes it’s not the popular one. Today is no different and I feel strongly enough that I am posting and I’m inviting discussion on this topic. So if you’ve got something to say after you read this, agree or disagree I’m happy to have a discussion with you.
I recently read an article, actually several in fact regarding Rape Culture in Video Games. The first article I read was tilted: Quit Pretending There Isn’t A Videogame Rape Culture. This is a bit of an old article, but I have noticed in our society recently there has been a very strong push towards more conversation and a spotlight pointing on this important issue so, let’s talk about it.
I’ve also noticed this trend regarding these discussions where the speaker needs to list their emotional/experience earning qualifications to speak. For example a lot of these discussions have started with “I know I’m a privileged white X”, or “I am a victim of X”. I both understand and I’m bothered that we suddenly have to do this before our viewpoints are taken into consideration. But, because I’m 50/50 on this, I’ll list mine.
I am a minority female, and a survivor of sexual abuse, bullying, homophobia, and Hurricane Katrina. Do I get to speak on this topic now?
Sweet, so let’s do it.
This is gonna be short and sweet –

Whole new site redesign. This will be the last one for a while folks. The book store is fully operational. Free stuff and super cheap stuff and autographed stuff!
