Hi, I'm Kristen. 23, cis-female, Black. I cry a lot about dead sidekicks, children's shows, and comic books. And I draw sometimes.

In response to a prompt i saw on here a while ago.

“She was taken almost two weeks ago, Colonel. I think she at least deserves for us to try,” Steve argued with Phillips. He’s already dressed in the suit, only missing the helmet and his shield.

Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”

King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.

“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”

Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.

What a beautiful badass woman.

King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.

MORE FEMALE KINGS.

Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.

Bitches get shit done.

Name:  Couslands of Color
Version:  version 1.0 WIP/beta
Date:  6/29/2014
Category:  Hair and Face Models
Author:  whyswhoswhats/zimrathon

=================
Requirements:
=================

Latest Patched version of Dragon Age: Origins, and all listed mods below.

=================
Description:
=================

The toolset and DA:O’s character creator are TERRIBLE for designing PoC, so this mod is my attempt to work within the constraints of both to provide players with options for representation in the Human Noble origin story.

All mods required are listed below, and any that are no longer available on their respective sites [or are packed in an INCREDIBLY user-unfriendly way] will be linked from my Dropbox account. Send me an ask if you have any issues/missing textures.

=================
Details:
=================

This mod is presently WIP, but I’ve completed one of the families [a dark-skinned/Rivaini/black family variant] and it’s now ready to be released. I am NOT putting these on the BSN or the Nexus because both sites are notoriously bad with regard to race. Suggestions for further representation are welcome and encouraged.

This mod does not change Oriana’s appearance, as she is married to Fergus and is not blood-related to the Couslands. A morph for Oriana can be asked of me on request.

=================
Installation:
=================

Add the dark-skinned_black folder, and all mods, to the usual place (\My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\packages\core\override). These morphs will change the appearances of the Couslands [except for Oriana] in every setting you encounter them, including Fergus at the coronation ceremony and Bryce in the Gauntlet.

**You will need the following mods:

I use winRAR to zip my files, as do many people on the Nexus/BSN, so you ought to get your hands on it if you want to use this mod.

~~~~~morph files are here~~~~~

=================
Un-Installation:
=================

Delete the dark-skinned_black folder. Doing so will revert the affected NPCs to their original Bioware appearances.

Remove the other mods needed for this if you wish, though if you like to make things in the toolset, I definitely recommend keeping them.

=================
Known Issues:
=================

Not compatible with other mods that edit the headmorphs of the Couslands.

These morphs have not been tested in-game. Consider this a beta release, and proceed accordingly. Make sure to alert me to errors, missing textures, clipping, etc.

So basically all these separate posts are kind of combining into my head into this one epic fantasy series with mermaids and knights and dragons and pirates

where all the relevant characters are lesbians.

"bioware ladies" tag

antivanrogue:

okay it seemed like there was enough support

reblog this to get the word out: tag lady-positive posts with “bioware ladies” so people can appreciate their fav ladies without gross porn or hateposts!

So one of my sorority sisters from undergrad has been working on this amazing new Kindle/Android/iPad math game for girls! She’s actually currently getting her PhD in psychology and is studying math learning and gender…and she’s actually been working on this concept since high school!

Empowering Personal Achievement

S.M.A.R.T. Adventures ™ games seek to empower girls to become self-assured and educated in math, science, and technology. Our goals are outlined here:

  • Create fun, engaging, and educational software that is designed specifically for girls
  • Help girls attain math, science, and technology literacy
  • Utilize scientific research in advanced learning and teaching techniques
  • Instill confidence in girls of all ages and stages of education
  • Collaborate with girls, parents, and educators to continuously improve our products

Our games allow girls to celebrate who they are and what they can achieve. Personalized interactive features allow each player to become the star of her own adventure by creating a custom avatar that looks like her. The story-based adventure includes an exciting mystery to solve, which helps motivate players to keep playing while practicing math skills. Our game world offers diverse characters that present problems to players and help them work through assignments and challenges.

We want players to have the freedom to explore and try new things, so our games include no timed activities and no penalties for wrong answers.  Players receive continuous feedback on progress, and each completed task leads to rewarding and amusing outcomes. The compelling storyline motivates players while introducing science and technology concepts in a light and fun way.

Imagine your child eager to tackle math concepts like basic arithmetic, fractions, decimals, bar graphs, place value, measurements of volume and mass, factors, multiples, angles, polygons, and spatial rotation. Watch her solve problems relating to space travel, chemistry, mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science, and more. Math practice has never been this much fun!

High Educational Standards

Our games utilize innovative techniques based on research in motivational and learning theory, specifically as it applies to girls studying math, science, and technology. We develop our games using national and state standards for mathematics education.

Our first educational game, Sabotage at the Space Station, is designed for girls ages 9 and up and is calibrated to what most students learn by the end of fourth grade. The game consists of a set of mini-games focused on different skills, and each mini-game has three levels of difficulty that present different challenges to the player. Many girls may need an adult’s help while playing the more difficult levels at first. The more they play, the more they will master the skills needed to play the most challenging levels.

Safe and Secure

Our games are age-appropriate and present positive images and role models for girls. There are no in-app purchases in our games, no additional modules to purchase to finish the game, and no links to websites. We will not spam you or sell your personal information.

——

Basically, it’s a game targeted towards letting girls save space stations with an avatar that can look like them, based on role models like Sally Ride. PS: I just talked to her and actually she told me one of the things they focused on was POC involvement! So yay! a game that girls of color can play to encourage them to love math!

Which is pretty darn cool and amazing.

Go check out the website!
