Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.

"feminists are just as bad as MRA’s"
i just wanted to clarify some things
artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.
saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t want it bastardized is probably the stupidest stance on this subject you could take. if all artists followed this line of reasoning, there would be no art on the internet.
when an artist posts their work, they are trusting you to enjoy it respectfully. and when you betray that trust either knowingly or unknowingly, it’s like saying the artist’s time, skills and thoughts aren’t worth anything.
you are NOT entitled to an artists work just because they decided to trust you enough to share it with you.
an artist is within their right to feel upset that someone has used their work in a way they never intended it to be used. they are within their right to ask for it to stop and not happen again.
just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.

Whoops, that last asker wanted the response private. Deleted but here’s my reply re: me yelling at Jontron
You are missing something! His praise tweet was directly in reply to me calling him out after he RTed and lol’d at a tweet comparing a historical photo of a lynchmob victim to present day social justice (those tweets are deleted now). He’s also been talking a lot about how it’s okay to casually use slurs and it’s NOT okay to tell anyone not to use those slurs because free speech. I’m not a fan of his, was not ever a friend of his, and he’s just one dude, but I am tired of this creator mentality that every little word that comes out of your lips must be defended and never apologized for and that anyone who’s upset by it must be faking!!! Boo to that. If I am ever being bigoted in some way, please know that I am extremely interested in hearing why and correcting my behavior, because the paranoia about the world getting “too PC” is some decades old bullshit for cranky uncles nobody likes.

being called “racist” isn’t an insult or something mean that people are saying to you because they want to bring you down. if you’re being called racist you shouldn’t be brushing it off because you “can’t see the haters” you should be assessing your behaviour, your language, and mindset for signs of prejudice, discrimination, and sympathy/support for unfair and violent treatment towards racially persecuted people in your country
yes King Baby
I think JonTron doesn’t understand the words coming out of his mouth
this is a beautiful trainwreck omgggggg
I wonder what this is in response too because I’m pretty sure those two guys were originally on Jon’s side and I’d like to think they turned around.

DONALD GLOVER IS SPIDER-MAN AT LAST (IN DISNEY XD’S ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN SERIES)
“My name is Miles Morales, and I’m Spider-Man.” With those words, Donald Glover takes his place among the ranks of official on-screen Spider-Men.
It’s been known for a while now that Miles Morales, the Ultimate Universe version of Spider-Man, would make his screen debut in an upcoming episode of the Disney XD series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, but only now do we know that the part will be voiced by actor and Spidey fan Donald Glover. It’s a brilliant casting decision that we choose to interpret as the first step towards more Miles in other media, rather than an end in its own right.
I didn’t know about this. this is cool
"cisphobia" isn’t even a thing outside of people saying "i hate cis people" on tumblr. it is very easy to log off tumblr and return to the world where everyone on tv is cis, everyone in the government is cis, and everyone assumes everyone else is cis because it’s "normal". but you can’t stop being trans. you can try to "pass" for cis people, but you can never stop living in fear, because being trans is dangerous. trans people are attacked, murdered, and harassed, because they are trans. even if they do “pass”.
you can tell anyone in the whole wide world that you’re cis, and the worst reaction you will get is “i am systematically oppressed by cis people, and i hate it” (and yes, that’s what “i hate cis people” means, not “every cis individual is a bad person”). but if you’re trans, that information is extremely sensitive. telling the wrong person could be gambling with your life.
