(Culturel Google MARU NIHONIHO LISY KANIE GAMERS ELISSA HARRIS A FUN, INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION RECOGNISES THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK BY WOMEN IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY e days of gaming being a boys-only zone are well and truly over. Nearly half of all gamers are women and, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the number of women working in the industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers and developers in the US were harassed and threatened for speaking out against sexism-give the industry a bad reputation. An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women in Games aims to change that. Ten female programmers, producers, designers and directors from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and visitors can play their games, which range from big studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky Towers through to more experimental titles. As programmer Elissa Harris says in the exhibition, "One of the most important things for a child growing up is seeing people who look like them doing the things they want to be doing. More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in games used to be mainly men-now there is more variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces games with Mäori characters, and players can choose to play in English or Te Reo Mãori. And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014 now the team is 35% women. "The video game industry has definitely identified the gender mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it and taken it on board and want to improve it." Code Breakers is at ACMI until November 5. Play the games online at acmi.net.au.-Chloe Walker Careers with Cade 29 Code CODE BITCH

Children, Definitely, and Dumb: rabidloving this is gonna be an extremely unpopular opinion so bare with me, but i don't think children should be vaccinated unless they really absolutely want to be and if they grow up into adults who still don't want to be vaccinated then so be it kids are too young to fully grasp what vaccination does to you, and i don't mean that in a "they'll make you autistic and die" way. i mean they don't understand what they're setting themselves up for in the future. (shots are pretty traumatic for children too, but that's for another day.) if a child is too young to consent to sex or medical transition if they're trans, they're definitely too young to consent to a vax i haven't had any contact with my family for quite some time now, so i have a hard time knowing my medical history, especially with my lack of health insurance and a move to a different country. because of that, i live with the constant fear that i might have been vaccinated against rabies. my family was extremely poor and had spotty health insurance but its hard to say. but ts fucking heartbreaking to know i might never be fully rabid because my parent might have AT&T rabies. my family was extremely poor and had spotty health insurance but its hard to say. but its fucking heartbreaking to know i might never be fully rabid because my parent might have vaccinated me as a child, when i was too young to know, too young to have a say in it 1:07 AM how many other kids are there, just like me? how many adults have grown up miserable because they've been vaccinated against their genetic disposition for a certain disease? its practically eugenics and it makes me fuckin sick to my stomach. there are babies RIGHT NOW getting vaxxed bc "thats what's healthy for them" and their parents have no idea how much grief they're causing right now so yea, maybe stop vaxxing your kids?? slavz Shikha there's a lot to unpack here but let's just throw away the whole suitcase discourseful at first i was like "yeah okay this a dumb but manageable take" and then op went for the rabies thing and my soul left my body Just when you think anti-vaxx couldn’t get any crazier
