how is is not valid to want your game to be historically accurate if that’s what you’re aiming for in the first place? that’s the most retarded thing i ever heard

I didn’t say it wasn’t valid, just that the criticism of it was also valid. Plus I bet you’ve heard at least 10 things more retarded than that, minimum

I find it hard to believe that it’s valid criticism, if their stated intent was to be historically accurate. Unless they outright came out to say “We don’t want no black folk in our game, white power!” then I doubt it’s like, some nutty excuse to keep colored folk out of their game

Maybe it would be nice to like, have a game exploring some cool knight who happened to be black and challenged the status quo of the time, or some shit like that, but is this really the appropriate game for that? It would probably have to be a whole game about it

part of the problem is that the people defending medievalpoc swear up and down that people of color lived all over Europe in all time periods, and nobody thought anything about it, so a game that draws attention to the uniqueness of blackness would also be really problematic to them

so wait, you mean to tell me the kind of people that are likely to bitch about something like “POC” and “white supremacy” will literally never be happy with what you do, even if you do exactly what they tell you?

i’ll alert the BBC

crazy but true….

The Blue People of Kentucky

The Fugate family gained fame for their rare genetic disorder that caused their skin to appear blue. Their ancestral line began six generations earlier with a French orphan, Martin Fugate, who settled in Eastern Kentucky. Martin Fugate came to Troublesome Creek from France in 1820 and family folklore says he was blue. He married Elizabeth Smith, who just happened to carry the rare recessive gene. Of their seven children, four were reported to be blue. There were no railroads and few roads outside the region, so the community remained small and isolated. The Fugates married other Fugate cousins and families who lived nearby, with names like Combs, Smith, Ritchie and Stacy.

The disorder that was passed down genetically was “methemoglobinemia” - a blood disorder in which an abnormal amount of methemoglobin — a form of hemoglobin — is produced. Hemoglobin is responsible for distributing oxygen to the body. In methemoglobinemia, the hemoglobin is unable to carry oxygen and it also makes it difficult for unaffected hemoglobin to release oxygen effectively to body tissues. Patients’ lips are purple, the skin looks blue and the blood is “chocolate colored” because it is not oxygenated. Most people have less than 1% methemoglobin in their blood, but this condition causes families like the Fugates to have anywhere up to 20% without having other health issues. 

Nothing like the Blue Fugates of Kentucky to demonstrate how absolutely fascinating genetics can be!

Saying ‘what kind of an idiot doesn’t know about the Yellowstone supervolcano’ is so much more boring than telling someone about the Yellowstone supervolcano for the first time.

School teaches you that ignorance is shameful, rather than being a person’s default AND ENTIRELY FIXABLE state. Sucks the fun outta learning, if you let it.

Will always reblog.

XKCD is my favorite comic of all time, for this reason. Tumblr could learn a huge lesson, especially from this comic.
if someone doesn’t know something, or says something wrong, do not shame them, teach them.

uh excuse me
its not my job to educate youits not my job to educate youits not my job to educate youits not my job to educate youits not my job to educate you

this is the good shit. fund this bad boy. it doesnt suck

mmsuben:

Don’t fund this shit. Stop playing into stupid fucking marketing ploys like this. You’ll get your Bee and Puppycat whether or not this receives the absurd $600k they’re looking for just like you were going to get Mighty No. 9 whether or not it received funding.

You’re being played by Frederator’s marketing department.

wrong. fund it

If I describe a guy named Carlos to you as dark skinned with black hair and you picture him as a tan white guy, I’m going to assume you’re a white supremacist. Cause you have to be trying really hard to picture a guy with that kind of description as white
