This always cracks me up and I just want a giant poster of it in every lab.
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
That comment on how videogames don’t cause school shootings?
Well, now. See that? That’s over 15 years work, of advocacy, ruined.
Everything gaming advocacy tried to assert, that videogames were art, that violence can be separated from the medium… all now rings hollow.
How does it feel to know that this may very well be #gamergate’s most lasting and bitter fruit?
Don’t be a religious suburban white mom about it
