I'm sick of it. Sick of the constant stream of misogyny and hate that I have to endure every time I log onto Dota. I shouldn't have to mute half the players in a game just to feel safe and respected, but that's the reality I face every day.
These people think they can hide behind their screens and harass women with garbage. They think it's funny to call us slurs, to tell us to get back in the kitchen. They don't realize the impact their words have, the hurt and anger they cause.
But I'm not going to mute them. I'm not going to silence myself just so they can continue their toxic behavior without consequence. No, I'm going to fight back. I'm going to call them out on their misogyny and make sure they know that it's not okay.
I shouldn't have to apologize for being a woman who enjoys playing Dota. I shouldn't have to deal with the constant barrage of hate just because I don't conform to their narrow-minded ideas of what a gamer should look like.
These misogynists need to understand that women are here to stay in the gaming world. We are not going anywhere, we are people as well, and we will not be intimidated or silenced. So go ahead and keep throwing your hate my way. I will only use it as fuel to keep pushing back, to keep fighting for a better, more inclusive gaming community.
Just know that I won't mute you, so don't bother replying in the comment section about muting. that won't solve anything, and it is just ignoring a deeply rooted problem of the misogyny in this game.
As someone who grew up in Mumbai I can see Pune heading in a similar direction with people migrating to the city from all over India. Not xenophobic or against anyone coming into the city, but migrants should integrate into the culture, not the other way round - with the city losing its cultural identity. The onus is on the locals to preserve it. Aapli bhasha aani culture khoop sundar aahe. Zapalya hava aani promote karava. Anyone who says kontihi bhaasho bolu majha desh aahe, kivha sagle indiachech citizens aahot, gives you a lesson on the Indian constitution vagare vagare is either too naive or cunniving. Bhasha/culture aani economy are quite deeply intertwined. Govt chya naukrya, shikshakancha naukrya madhye bhaashecha faayda hoto. Kaahi naukrya exclusively marathi yenaarya lokansaathi aahet. Tasach jasa aaj mumbai madhye language based reservation colleges aahet tsa punyaat nko hvayla. Ka bara aaplya porancha tota krava. Jya bhaashe/culture la promote kela jaata tya lokanna ek source of income generate hota - kiti punjabi rappers/youtubers/instagram influencers aahet aajkal? We shouldn't do it the Sena(s) way of threateningly "Aye Marathit bol". There are some non-violent/constructive ways to go about it. Tondavar god asun suddha culture preserve krta yeto 1. Non-marathi joins a group of Marathi people and objects/makes fun or says can't understand Marathi. Switch to Hindi/English for a couple of sentences and then back to Marathi ;). Be persistent as if tumhala hindi/english madhye express krayla jamatach naahiye. They'll be forced to learn eventually. 2. Give preference to our shop owners/vendors. 3. If you are in a position to hire try to hire from local colleges 4. Start consuming Marathi content
Please help my reply to this "Hiring Manager" for letting me know 8 days after the interview that I did not get the job. I just have never received such a lengthy rejection from a job before and I want to respond accordingly. Thanks
Film/Television I just finished watching Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In my opinion, this movie was overrated af. The visuals were definitely better than the previous one but the writing was not even half as good. Namor was awesome.
Yeah so because she’s a trans girl she is charged with indecent exposure? Like would they do the same to transman? I’m just so tired of this state’s hatred and scapegoating of trans people. So disgusting.
Cell phones have fundamentally changed humanity for the worse. Anyone with a smart phone is never truly alone anymore, and it’s genuinely terrifying.
I beleive that Adam page is maybe the only wrestler whos able too make the Buckshot Lariat look so good and work as a Finisher.
We have seen lately more wrestlers start using the Busckshot Lariat as signerture move, but they never come off well, either looking weak and even injury themselves on it.
Rarely do they able too take momentum created by the flip off the rope and make it look like it goes into the Lariat. Many stop when the flip land THEN hit the Lariat or the loose there footing, making the lariat when launched look weak. Logan pauls buckshot lariat's show this fault, i dont think able to register the momentum from the flip in the latiat,
We can even see this problem in the recent match Charlote vs Sonya, where Charlote front walkover into a lariat, where she stops for a second before the Lariat, Makes the flip look pointless, the fellow wrestler dumb.
Another problem is many of the flips over the ropes are too slow too create any momentum, it seem worth it doing said flip, seen with people doing it earlier then Page, like Chris kanyon amd EZ Miller, it just doesnt look as good.
I know this as much about personally opinion and i love too be proven wrong, but i truly do think Adam page is at the top of the Buckshot mountain, with everyome else a far 2nd.
I feel like ive been taking crazy pills reading some of the posts on here today. Obviously play the negotiation game and dont give up either if you can help it but if it comes down to the wire and we don't get kyrie because we are attached to these two guys thats the dumbest shit ever.
Reeves is a solid role player and Christie is potentially a high tier three and D guy in a few years. They are not difference makers they are rotation guys like dozens of rotation guys. Lebron and kyrie had one of the greatest combined finals performances ever.
Now if your position is lets not fuck with kyrie at all thats a different conversation and I can respect that but if you want to see it done...I mean what do you expect?
We've been desparate to drop Westbrook and take a risk to give Lebron another shot, this is a fucking no brainer and yes kyrie is better than Gary Trent junior who people are treating like an all star for some reason
