Look. Look what happens. Anita Sarkeesian's main crime was to stand up and talk about sexism in the gaming community/industry. I'm not here to say that sexism in gaming is "harmless," but it's certainly not what hinders women in receiving equal pay or walking the streets safely. And for the crime of standing up and discussing a relatively minor transgression, she receives not just threats against her own safety, but threats against anyone who would come to see her speak. And what is going to be done about it?
I would like to say that I am angry about stuff like this, but more and more lately, I just feel like a whipped goddamn dog. What has to happen for us to be treated like people? What keystone needs to be pulled to bring the structure down?
