  • In Anita Sarkeesian's project to expose stereotypes in video games attracts a maelstrom of hate.

    I am not going to justify any of her ideas, man, that's not the point. Maybe I too think it's bullshit, maybe not. In-depth research is never a bad idea, even for things that one might think are known - you never know, maybe you will discover something new - or alternatively, you prove the known facts really solidly.

    Now, this lass got a whole lot of abuse from the internet. Aaaaaannnd... Okay, I will say, that people on the internet are fucking stupid and hateful and will write all sorts of crap. It is the internet. You gotta be prepared for it, but really, some motherfucker out there... I will say, however, that this now seems very one-sided. Men attacking women. You always hear about that. Do you hear about women attacking men often in such manner? You know, why you don't hear about that? Because we do not like to talk about it when it happens. We don't make a scene of it. And you can believe me - for every brainless male women-hater there's an equal number or crazy bitches who are ready to go and fuck with you (in a bad way) when they see you do something they consider a sexist. You know, I read webcomics. And one comics author recently had one of those feminists harass him. Why? Because for her the art was to sexist and she thought that there was rape in the comics (and there was none, I can tell you that). So she wrote him by mail, on forums, in boards. She went and fucked him up almost to the point of nervous breakdown. Just one single feminist. You girls know how to fuck us up. And you know that you know. But we know that you know you know. You know? So. Do not make believe that only men do that shit. Humans on the internet do that shit.

    Nothing justifies abuse from either sides. If you don't support the idea of her Kickstarter project, well, deal with it, and like, don't pay attention.

    Can you link the webcomic? It seems like an interesting story.

    You want to know about abuse of journalists? Being called a cunt is not an abuse. Not for real journalist. In 2000 Ukrainian journalist George Gongadze, who investigated Ukrainian government, was kidnapped and, later, killed. Now, this is a secret, but he was killed by Ukrainian soldiers who received their order from one general. He told them to just scare him, but they accidentally killed the bastard. And they desided to make it look like some maniac killed him. So... they chopped off his fucking head.

    Now that is what can be called an abuse.

    That sounds like an interesting, fucked up story. Mind linking?

    Sorry it seems like I am just asking links off you, but if you invoke stories, you got to back them up, or at least try to. :<

  • Anita Sarkeesian's project to expose stereotypes in video games attracts a maelstrom of hate.

    Woah. I don't think I have to say a lot here, the article speaks for itself.. I just can't understand how people can have such a backwards mentality. When I grew up, we didn't differentiate between genders much at all, but then, if it might sound a bit arrogant, I was in a quite intellectual environment...

    I think we might want to organize something like "troll the trolls" though, because really. What the fuck.

    Also a Homestuck badge, because it's a whole new level of anything.

  • The Last Seduction

    Hey-o, a friend recommended me this song and I got the entire album. It's pretty sweet. A new artist, apparently. Was included in a game bundle.

    Also, love his name. Baron von Luxxury.
