Bad examples. Not because of their crimes but because they caused a great amount of angst for black communities when they inevitabley reached out to them for help. It finally did happen but there was a lot of teeth-gnashing over it. I saw it and I'm a white woman. And not necessarily for their crimes either, but… » 10/24/14 8:24pm Yesterday 8:24pm

Gawker fucks up some big stories. The Rob Ford tape, and they obviously thought they could get mileage from gamergate but wow, I can't even list the ways on how stupid it was to go from meta to inserting themselves in the narrative with Sam Biddle's tweets and now everyone is conflating Adobe's and Intel's actions… » 10/24/14 6:26pm Yesterday 6:26pm

I'll go on record with you. I know why people were supporting them but it's not an achievement to look golden next to gamergaters, come on. The tweets were just so 1993, haha fucking nerds need to be put in their place *pops collar*. I'm not even sure he was making a distinction between gamers and gamergaters. » 10/23/14 6:11pm Thursday 6:11pm

I'll agree with this. Gamers are very hierarchical. I don't agree with the main post. I think what he's talking about is more a symptom of youth and/or stupid, and because there has been no one to sit them down and say hey, there shouldn't be a totem pole, get off it, they unfortunately translate it to just about… » 10/23/14 3:35pm Thursday 3:35pm

Yeah, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't giving me pause. It's giving my fellow female friend gamers pause too. I always felt that most gamers were optimistic and open with a eye towards playing and NOT gatekeeping - casual vs. hardcore arguments excluded - but like Felicia Day I've been wondering lately if a guy is… » 10/22/14 9:59pm Wednesday 9:59pm

Well...I mean I agree with all your points but I'm still not sure why egg-freezing is getting so much hate lately. Can we not promote the other things while also celebrating egg-freezing (while also hoping that the process of egg-freezing gets more refined?) Because I actually do think it's a gamechanger of a… » 10/21/14 3:44pm Tuesday 3:44pm

I'm annoyed that her entire identity as presented to the american public is still this incidence. I was completely supportive of her when the news broke (and Clinton too - I was in the hate Linda Tripp party) but at this point I'm like, where is your life at and show us that you are more than this before going back… » 10/21/14 5:44pm Tuesday 5:44pm

I was disappointed that we got a "tune in next time for when she confronts the space jockeys for answers" ending in Prometheus but honestly it had all kinds of nifty themes with regards to humanity, which works better because when we do deal with the space jockeys we'll have a better frame of reference by which to… » 10/21/14 2:10am Tuesday 2:10am
