This made me cry so much. Louis is obviously taken by what the lady said about her daughter - I can’t even imagine how he felt. It’s almost like he doesn’t have any words to say to her after that. He cares so much and I hate it when people say he’s the worst member of the band - he truly gives me hope and inspiration.
yall are more concerned with fuckboy louis crying over seeing poverty than the grandmother who has a dying daughter and has to raise her granddaughter in a poverty stricken place this is literally insane
Not only did this movie challenge the constant oppression of women, it was one of the only movies to depict Africa so well. Rich, well spoken African royalty, tell me the last time they did something like this.

… They are indeed not kidding. On the one hand, depressing. On the other hand, major games media covering this stuff and acknowledging that, no, this isn’t “normal”, this is very one-sided.
They closed comments because, guess what, the comments were horrible.
Some friends of mine curated a blog containing the unsolicited messages female gamers would receive just for being female. They regularly got comments from men who had no idea the kind of savagery that’s out there. To be a woman in video games is to be perceived as a threat to be put down and an object to be acquired or destroyed.
Your friends are awesome people, and you can tell ‘em I said so. Not that they have any particular reason to care what I think.
But yeah, I have pointed people to that on a number of occasions.
it’s not enough for me to refrain from harrassing women; all that’s needed for evil to triumph is for good to do nothing. i have to do more than be respectful myself. i won’t team with anyone who talks shit to/about women in a game. i won’t stay in a guild with them. i won’t help them find things, trade with them, or basically give them any positive interaction at all.
i don’t expect that any individual adolescent fucktruck will figure out he’s getting stonewalled for being a sexist little shit and change his ways, but if enough gamers get in the habit of cutting those jerks off, the culture will begin to change.
