Screen captures of Matt Forney’s “How to Rape Women and Get Away with It” since he’s taken it down.

He’s apologized to (in his words)  ”actual” rape survivors, but still contends that feminists are politicizing and exaggerating rape.

This is… this is disgusting. Like, truly.

Was this on Return of Kings or some other trash site?

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.

the brilliant thing about being a woman is that I’m punished for both trusting and distrusting men!

I should magically know which man is going to harm me by having a brief conversation with him. if I trust Bad Men, then, well. I should’ve known. 

if I don’t trust Nice Men though, I’m an utter bitch who deserves violence. don’t I know most men are good people?

I’m sayin doe….

Reminds me of reddit thread where some guy said he felt like a weirdo for coincidentally following a girl for like 6-7 blocks at night alone and happening to be her neighbor without knowing, but she didn’t know and so she yelled at him and ran. The thread blew up in calling her a “bitch” and how he “should have told her to calm the fuck down”. Like, dude. If you’re alone and- fuck it should I have to explain?

Several minutes ago, Anita Sarkeesian posted this to her Twitter.
First response, a guy calling her a “cunt”, and the third is a guy linking to this image (VERY NSFW.)
Yeah, good job proving that you’re not sexist, guys.

Once again I do not support anita’s message in any way and agree with her on very few things but she in no way ever deserved death threats and harassment and a bunch of uneducated fucks harassing her every time she tries to say something.
Good job guys, you all proved how progressive you are.

Why do people do this? Always add the disclaimer that you absolutely totally do not agree with her at all BUT. Why does it matter in this context?
I mean, sure, I’m glad that you, unlike many people who disagree with her, don’t think she deserves harassment. That’s good. 
But what would it take for there to be a strong show of support for her that isn’t full of caveats about how you disagree?

And furthermore, what in the FUCK is there to disagree with her on? I mean, if she likes potatoes and you like carrots, then what the fuck ever. But how can you disagree with her analysis of misogyny in video games when literally every time she breathes, dudes show up to threaten to rape her and blow her up? Practically her entire life has become one long series of bullshit that proves her right at every turn. Fuck you if you don’t believe her. Fuck you if you don’t agree with her.

I’ve known multiple people who are all anti-Anita and they try to say it’s about her arguments, but when I press them about it they switch to say it’s about the way she presents them, and when I press them more it turns out it’s about misogyny.
People don’t like her because she presents these facts in an unapologetic, straightforward, no-nonsense way utilized by many male academics. In other words, she’s acting like a total b*tch. Because any woman who talks about these issues without apologizing to men about it and petting their egos every eight seconds is a b*tch.

Everyone read those last two comments.  Over and over.
