"You’re gonna do great today"
Accidentally hurting someone vs. accidentally hurting an animal
My friend asked me to walk down the stairs while he filmed me and it was the best decision I made all month.
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.

Holy actual fuck.
I will never understand how people defend this kind of behavior by saying “But have you WATCHED Anita’s videos? They’re terrible! There is so much wrong with them!”
You can think whatever you want about her videos.
That does NOT justify violence, death threats, or harassments. FECCKKK.
