Can we at least talk about how i have photographic proof of a bunch of feminists…
woop there is it
after all the definitive proof from the FBI and every reputable news source showing the basis of his movement is scum he will still defend it like some nasty ass white knight
trigger warning for some terrifying shit but
your GG friends are not the ones being made homeless by feminists. feminists aren’t the ones sending bomb threats to schools and threatening to mutilate and sexually violate your corpse with your significant others’ genetalia. feminists aren’t the ones hacking into your employers’ financial assets to professionally discredit you. feminists aren’t calling your families to scream that you’re a whore to your fathers. feminists aren’t choosing to be represented by homophobic transphobic bullying neonazis (literally not a hyperbole, somehow, click those links it’s unbelievable)
i’m done reasoning with garbage
but you know what guys, i am feeling hopeful. zoe was on msnbc after coming back from the courthouses to smoke her ex, who has violated his restraining order upwards of a dozen times. and something is happening. people are starting to band together. gamergate shitdicks milo and mike are being smoked out as we speak.
GG is dying. remnants of it will still remain, probably, but they’re putting the nail in their own coffin with every ounce of word vomit they regurgitate. you can bury your head in the sand all you like, but we will never stop fighting for games for everyone
so enjoy getting knocked on your ass.
dimittas said: Anita Sarkeesian (female) sent many death threats to herself. But she isnt a video gamer, so your point still might be a valid.
You are literally too stupid to insult.
Translation: I can’t disprove that so you’re stupid.
I can’t disprove that unicorns are real, but that doesn’t make them exist. I know I shouldn’t feed the trolls, but hell, I’ve got a bit of time to kill.
Gamergate is a hate movement that started with a jilted ex of a game dev accusing her of sleeping with a journalist for a good review, when said journalist never reviewed the game in question at all.
Anita Sarkeesian and Brianna Wu have been driven from their homes by death threats and harassment. #Gamergate as a whole has been revealed as a concentrated, concerted effort to harass Zoe Quinn by the aforementioned jilted ex.
And over what? Feminism in video game journalism? Less than half a percent of articles written about video games contain explicit references to sexism, misogyny, or feminism. Every major art form is analyzed in sociopolitical lights. Every major everything is analyzed that way. It’s what criticism is. Feminist criticism is an accepted academic method of analyzing media that has been in use since the late 1700s.
Even if it wasn’t, these people are essentially getting angry about discussions about women having more egalitarian portrayals in games. That’s literally it. Their biggest rallying cry is that men who play games are being shoved into the margins despite being gaming’s core target demographic. Except they fail to notice that adult women are the largest demographic in gaming, and even if they weren’t, it’s not oppressive to be asked to maybe not use women as sex objects in games. It’s not oppressive for some things not to be about men and their entertainment.
The threats made against Sarkeesian are credible, and the FBI agrees with me on that one. She isn’t the only one to receive credible death and rape threats recently (or in the past) and she won’t be the last.
I suspect you’re not the type who actually cares about facts, however. I suspect you’re one of the people who urge us to “look at both sides” of the issue, but honestly? When one side sends death, rape, and bomb threats, and the other wants women not to be treated as shitty by the gaming industry as they are, that’s not a debate I’m willing to have.
By the way, humanism is the belief that people have the ability to act ethically without the assistance of theism or supernatural belief. If you want a belief system that’s about ensuring men and women have equal rights and opportunities, that’s feminism.
zoe’s on msnbc telling gamergate to grow up and she aint goin anywhere
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.
Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.
His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.
Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.
Racism is institutionalized & systemic. This is what black people face, this is the reality.
I was looking for reference for bracket fungi, and I ran into this:
And second I saw that, I was like ”wait, that looks familiar…”.
Then it hit me.
