Miserable is the man who loves a woman and takes her for his wife, pouring at her feet the sweat of his skin and the blood of his body and the life of his heart, and placing her in the hands of the fruit of his toil and the revenue of his diligence; for when he slowly wakes up, he finds that the heart that he endeavored to buy is given away freely and in sincerity to another man for the enjoyment of its hidden secrets and deepest love. — Khalil Gibran (1883-1931)

Because a series with ninja wraiths fighting ninja icemen and giant 4 armed dragon people is so damn realistic. Also, although the women will no longer have a porn star build apparently the men are all going to remain unrealistically ripped as shit and buff as hell. And, you know, the amazingly realistic fatalities and blood loss will also remain. Because you know everyone plays Mortal Kombat for the sake of realism.
Edit: Looking back, I gave the benefit of the doubt to the developers and tried to come up for a reason that they’d make the models more “realistic.” Thinking on it, previous Mortal Kombats (save the very first installments, which used real people) had so-so graphics. Mortal Kombat 9, although an amazing game, had fairly plastic looking, over the top people. So, one could infer that the developers were simply trying to make their characters look more life-like. However, that brings up the question why point out only the women are being made to look “realistic.” Why not point out that both (humanoid) genders will be made to look “realistic?” The only things I can come up with are: they didn’t think the (humanoid) men matter, they didn’t change the men at all and/ or they caved in to some feminist group’s pressure.

After strolling through the Manosphere I found a link to a website with a vast array of information on the false rape claim epidemic sweeping America. The website has a variety of information, taken from various sources of criminal justice officials, studies, counter-studies and others. This information will prove useful to anyone questioning the current “rape epidemic” news that always seems to be constantly parroted in various “news” media and on Facebook (I am looking at you “men stop the rape that occurs on the Super Bowl” threads).

So, apparently all the hoopla over NBA racism has spread to the NFL. US senators have called for the Redskins to change their name.
More witch hunts are sure to follow. Normally, I would ignore such stories but the Redskins did something interesting. They refused to cave.
What really bothers me is that civil rights groups, US senators and President Obama (yes he commented as well) have nothing better to do with their time than attack a football team’s name. Is there nothing else for them to do?
