I'm Liz. I'm not Greek at all. Currently residing in Nebraska. My boyfriend is fun. LOTR is my life passion and I hope to be a famous Tolkien scholar someday. I'm trying my best to be happy. ~LOTR, Game of Thrones, Hufflepuff, literature stuff, Arrow, Destiny, Doctor Who, probably more text posts than anything though.~
I may not have much

I promise you’re enough.
I promise you’re enough, I promise you.”

I stared at these gifs for waaaaayyyyy longer than I should have.

HP fans in 2007: Sometimes people are layered like that. There's something totally different underneath than what's on the surface.
HP fans in 2014: And sometimes there's a third, even deeper level, and that one is the same as the top surface one. Like with pie.

The above document was sent to me by a male reader of my site who’s quite stunned by what he read. I’m not.

They’re fairly organized and are actively calling for articles and research to highlight just how oppressed they are:

"Cite sources that show Leigh Alexander’s EXTREME racism, misandry, and bias towards Intel’s largest consumer-level base (Gamers)… If you have an academic position, tenure, are part of a research group AND have an interest in contributing NEW PAPERS that go against the current Feminist Inquisition…"

Leigh Alexander wrote about the lack of diversity and the decline in gaming culture.

DiGRA = Digital Games Research Association.

We all know what consumer base they’re about as well.

But it’s all about ethics in journalism and research, right?

If I could offer a young person advice about anything it would be do NOT make life decisions based on your boyfriend or girlfriend. Girls especially. Do NOT stay close to home for him, do not skip opportunities to travel or study abroad, do not pick a safe college to be with him. Expand your horizons. Broaden your own life. He is not the world.

  #i think about this a lot when I think about vinnie    #and i think what's unique in our situation is that    #he Wants to follow me around the world    #I'd say something like    #let's move to Oregon for a year or two? and he's excited about it    #I say    #one day i want to live in England and work in the library in the town where Tolkien grew up    #and vinnie said    #let's live in colorado while you get a librarianship degree and then we'll move to England

Now presenting, in its full, complete, and downloadable glory, the Racism and Middle Earth series! This six part guide to Tolkien and Racism collects relevant tidbits from Tolkien’s own writings (from the most familiar to the most obscure) in order to highlight what the most problematic and the most potential-ridden parts of Middle Earth are, and outlines how we, as fans, can make Middle Earth a better place for characters of all ethnicities.

Each chapter is summarized in the photos above. The series can be downloaded as a .pdf, .ibook, or text-only .pdf (warning: the text version is not pretty, and is missing some important maps, so use only as a last resort.) I’ve also got a list of articles, essays, and blog posts on the subject of Middle Earth and racism here, for anyone wanting to learn more, or just looking for a different perspective/take on the issue. 

(For those who read the original blog posts, there have been a few changes to this final version - mainly additions made to Part I.)
