Presently 22 years old, among other things I love art, video/computer games, books, comics, films and TV series, a mountain of other nerdy things, collect pokemon cards and revere science above all else. My hobbies include doing art, reading, going to the gym, playing computer games and collecting pokemon cards.
Concerning myself in slightly more detail, I like many things…as, I'm told, do most people. I'm extremely fond of fiction, primarily science fiction and fantasy, with Doctor Who and The Lord of the Rings being my two favourite examples of both of those, although Steven Moffat is currently doing his best to thoroughly destroy the former. Chief among my interests is Pokemon, which is probably my most favorite thing ever, having been with it from the beginning and having a frightfully large pokemon trading card collection. Few things have brought me as much joy as Pokemon has over the years.
My other serious interests are science, in particular the areas of biology, natural history, evolution, zoology and nuclear power, which I am very,very much in favour of, especially the aim to achieve commercial fusion power since that would be a godsend for the environment. These subjects have always fascinated me more than anything else. In addition to this I have always adored art, particularly illustration and even more specifically, concept art, the likes of which is done for movies and video games, and hope one day to get a job related to this…I really, really hope.
I get constant headaches and am easily infuriated by the simplest of things, so in a sense I suppose I'm like some sort of crossbreed of Donald Duck and a Psyduck.
I started this blog as an experiment, a tentative foray into being sociable…but on the internet so I don't actually have to be sociable in person because that is very scary.
I mainly post stuff relating to Pokemon, Feminism, Science and Art, but also a ton of other random shit from time to time just because I feel like it, and by 'from time to time' I of course mean, 'very often'.
Now for the super mature and important details:
My favourite pokemon are Donphan, Nidorino, Nidoking, Steelix, Psyduck and Cloyster

My favourite toy is Lego
My Favourite computer games are the Pokemon gameboy/colour/advance/DS and 3DS RPGs, Lego Racers (the original one not the second one), Minecraft, The Ratchet and Clank series, Fallout 3, The Bioshock series, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and V: Skyrim, several of the Sonic the Hedgehog games, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and (most of) the Crash Bandicoot series, specifically, the first three games (especially 2), Crash Bash and Crash Twinsanity. Don't even talk to me about the horrendous new ones…
And that's about it! :D
The problem here is that these squealing man-children, so desperate to keep women out of their precious games, want it both ways. They want gaming to be taken seriously as a culture and art form, while at the same time throwing an unbelievable tantrum when subjected to serious criticism. This is ludicrous and immature on so many levels. Gaming isn’t for you, anymore. Gaming is for everyone. Everyone gets to have their say, to make their criticism, and gaming doesn’t need you to defend it.
The only thing left for these people to do is put their toys back in the pram and huddle together as the tide rises against them, until they wake up in five year’s time and realise that Assassin’s Creed 7 was actually a pretty good game, even though they had to waste three precious seconds flicking the gender over to ‘male’ on the character creation screen so they can feel comfortable again. Change is inevitable, especially when half of the freaking gamers in the country are women and actually want to play some games that don’t treat them like disposable trash.
So, here’s another change for you: if you really think feminism, or women, are destroying games, or that LGBT people and LGBT relationships have no place in games, or that games in any way belong to you or are “under attack” from political correctness or “social justice warriors”: please leave this website. I don’t want your clicks, I don’t want your hits, I don’t want your traffic. Leave now and please don’t come back."
