Poe's Law again. Did you forget how you heard about Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn etc in the first place?

If the cost/benefit of posting any opinion online gets to be far heavy on the cost side then everyone will just keep quiet or only post the most heavily self-edited, sterile and bland content possible.


Which is why, in the context of a monetary system where people must engage in the contrived and artificial competition for labor market for the necessities of life, the mass media is a shit show. The same will become true of internet celebrities once they become overly monitized. #YouTubeRed

I don't know if people can handle thinking for themselves..

Almost seems like a vestigial trait anymore.

Uggg. I have an ongoing feud with anyone that is considered a "youtuber". I almost just threw up a little in my mouth saying it.

Thunderf00t never complained about getting doxxed, he thought it was out of line when she contacted his employer and local police calling him a Nazi and genocide supporter. I agree with him. That people here still want to side with the feminists here is really fucking sad and lowers my opinion of them considerably.

If you hate someone so much that you think it is OK for people to send libelous letters to their employers because they disagree with their opinions on their youtube channel. Then you have truly put the blinders on and admitted you have turned off all critical thinking about this subject.


What is the "side" here? Can someone be a feminist and not side with whatever some random on youtube did to some other random on youtube?

Re: The interesting feud between Laughingwitch and Thunderf00t
I watched one of Thunderf00t's videos, probably because it was recommended here. I thought it was incredibly biased and suggested that his antipathy of feminism had gotten out of control and overwhelmed his judgment. (One bit I remember was him "debunking" the idea that there could possibly be something sexist or exploitative in a video game where the plot involved players taking down a sex slave ring because obviously the slavers were the bad guys...and somehow he ignored the fact that the video he was voicing over was a bunch of hot women chained naked on a stage.)

He was, like many of the Sarkeesian haters here, personal and nasty in tone.

That doesn't make what this woman allegedly did right and she has no one to blame but herself if she tried to create problems for him in his personal life and then she or her husband got blowback in theirs, but it's hardly shocking to me to learn that Thunderf00t is encountering the worst of the Internet.

Re: The interesting feud between Laughingwitch and Thunderf00t
Despite my low regard for Anita Sarkeesian's intellectual position on the social impact of video games, I have no hesitation calling the harassment and death/rape threats she's encountered reprehensible. No one here willing to do the same for Thunderf00t?

What many gamergaters don't understand is that Sarkeesian is criticizing video games, not video game players.

Thunderf00t should have thought about that when he was doxxing people himself. That people still want to side with him here after his long history of unethical behavior is really sad and disappointing.

After Thunderf00t was dropped from FreeThought Blog for harassing the other bloggers over discussions of things like convention harassment policies, he doxxed a number of the other bloggers. So if you support that, your opinion of peole who support the feminists that Thunde4rf00t hates so much doesn't really matter.

She causes people like yourself to reveal themselves for what they are, so that's a plus.

it's a nice day. it rained here.


May 9
Rain.
Stared out the window all day.
Peaceful here — nothing to do.
Still not allowed to go outside.

May 10
Still raining.
Talked with the doctor a little.
Would they have saved me if
I didn't have a family to feed?
I know I'm pathetic, weak.
Not everyone can be strong.

May 11
Rain again.
The meds made me feel sick
today.
If I'm only better when I'm
drugged, then who am I anyway?

May 12
Rain as usual.
I don't want to cause any more
trouble for anyone, but I'm a
bother either way.
Can it really be a such a sin to
run instead of fight?
Some people may say so, but they
don't have to live in my shoes.
It may be selfish, but it's what
I want.
It's too hard like this.
It's just too hard...

May 13
It's clear outside.
The doctors told me I've been
released — that I've got to go
home.
I --------------

She does not even play the video games she writes "reviews" of. "Everything is sexist and racist and homophobic and transphobic and islamaphobic to her. And all actions of cis gendered white males are to serve the patriarchy. Cis gendered white males should not talk about anything and should keep their mouth shut that is what she wants.


I think this is a mischaracterization of her videos. How does playing or not playing a video game change its content?
