Gonna open up a can of worms here. It’s fine, they’re squishy. I like worms.
I’ve seen a lot of talk about Anita Sarkeesian and her Tropes vs. Women series. I watched a few. Some are on point, others I found her to be reaching just to make a point, and a few were her just beating the same point…
Not that I feel overwhelming compelled to jump into the front lines of all this, the ongoing campaign of harassment by a select group of “gamers” and hate groups against women associated with the video game industry, like Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, is too unbelievably pathetic, and…
You are spot on. I believe these are kids/teens/young male adults who have not yet matured, not enjoyed loving discipline, never been instructed by their mothers and fathers the difference between right and wrong, especially when it comes to behaviour towards women. It’s not about games. It’s about society. We need to address the selfishness, entitlement, discipline problems not just to combat this disgusting mysogeny but to combat all sorts of societal ills.
This came off for more hippy/love-thy-neighbor than I meant it to but it still stands.
I reblogged a girl gamer who told of rape threats online. What type of individual threatens rape? What kind of environment allowed this type of behaviour to go unchecked? What do this kids parents feel about their son threatening a woman with rape?
I see posts around the whole Sarkeesian drama being engineered by herself/accomplices to give further credence to her point, but even if none of this occurred, this societal problem was here before Anita and will remain after Anita unless we become intolerant to this shit and change ourselves.
“Central to the self-centred psychology of these people is that they see themselves as the targets of a grand conspiracy of feminist, progressive journalists and game developers that seeks to destroy their ability to… something. They have no actual issue. It’s all perceived persecution at the hands of political correctness. These “theories” are so narcissistic, so devoid of substance, that the only way to explain them is through delusion. And I mean, I get it - justifying one’s shitty behaviour with a made-up conspiracy probably feels better than confronting the painful truth that one is an asshole.”—Video Games, Misogyny, And Terrorism: A Guide To Assholes (Andrew Todd)
