WHY HULK-MARG MAD (AND THEREFORE SMASH)
A slideshow I made to express how I feel about Sony's "OMG Girlz Play Too" ad campaign.

How this came about:

Jacob: Like totally. Nice work Sony...

Margaret: HULK-MARGARET SMASH STUPID SONY. GIRLS NOT STUPID LILAC PEOPLE. GIRLS STRONG AND AWESOME! AAAAARRRRR!

Karen: frankly, i am offended by the negative connotation of bedazzling that appears to have saturated the geek-gamer movement. must not i hulk-smash whilst wearing pretty gems? MAY NOT I??

Margaret: HULK-MARG LIKE GEMS. HULK-MARG LIKE GEM SWEATERS. BUT HULK-MARG NO LIKE PANDERING ONLY TO GEM INTERESTS. HULK-MARG WELL-ROUNDED, HAS MANY INTERESTS AND LAYERS. HULK-MARG GIVE EXAMPLE: SMASHING.

Andrea: can we give an entire business presentation in hulk language?

Margaret: LET HULK-MARG FIND POWERPOINT AND LASER POINTER. HULK-MARG HAS POWERPOINT HERE SOMEWHERE.

...

Margaret: AHEM: HULK-MARG FOUND POWERPOINT. MADE SLIDES.

I found it funny, but really, I don't think that Sony making girly gaming stuff is any worse than my little pony or anything like that. If it gets more people playing Loco Roco than everything is okay.

Also, I appreciate that you are more than gems and purple, but it's a little much to expect an advertising campaign to appeal to the many facets of your personality.

The Devil Tesla, I think her point was that Sony thinks girls are just fluffy and shit when those who possess two X chromosomes are often not. I'm female, and I have no time for lilac, gemstones, or ponies, and much prefer a good round of Super Smashing, Rock Band, Guitar Hero, a good strategy game, or possibly even a first-person shooter to... ponies.
