Counting Down On Gamergate

7.

One of the earliest memories of my childhood is of competitively playing computer games against my brother. He was three, I was four, and our parents had a Macintosh Plus that lived in the basement office for Important Adult Business. On occasion, however, Mommy would let us play. It didn’t take long for me to become completely hooked. My game of choice was Stunt Copter— a single player 2D…

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.

This is terrifying

I’ve been talking a lot about engaging in popular culture with awareness and consuming media critically the last day or two. And I wanted to reblog this because in the United States, the term “culture wars” is often used as a metaphor, but it’s becoming all too accurate.

Writers and bloggers, academics and activists, are not only being openly attacked, but their attackers are being portrayed in the media as having “a difference of opinion”. The fact is, no one is willing to step up and defend our right to speak and be still remain physically safe. Social media and topical websites (by which I mean the people who run them and write for them) are complicit in this kind of silencing and abuse. The police are complicit when they refuse to provide safety. Anyone who does not push back, who does not say, “Wait, this is NOT okay!” is complicit.

Every woman I know who engages in any kind of critique of poplar culture has been subjected to threats, harassment, stalking, and attempts to slander or discredit their work. I’ve been subjected to this, especially when I’ve said anything whatsoever about video games. Where does it end? When do we say “no more”?
