Actually I've seen this sort of thing on reddit. Young socially awkward guys who've clearly internalized that someone might think they're a perv around children or women - because they know they're socially awkward and men aren't supposed to take interest in childcare at all, der - so they take great steps to avoid… » 10/31/14 2:16pm 50 minutes ago

Personally I liked Reyes and Doggett. And I was, still am, a diehard Scully and Mulder fan. If they had ended the X-Files and started up the M-files with Reyes and Doggett I would have been perfectly happy. The problem was whenever the chemistry started rolling with Reyes and Doggett, Scully and other older… » 10/30/14 5:42pm Yesterday 5:42pm

You completely missed her point though. By clinging to long-held opinions regarding gender essentialist notions and cultural biases, guys aren't escaping harm either. The toxic masculinity concept isn't helpful to men any more than the sex object concept is helpful to women. » 10/30/14 3:14am Yesterday 3:14am

Yeah, your eta covers it: you've made your choice, you've got your own tastes, but it just so happens that there aren't any hair removal methods that are well-suited to you. If there were, would you have made this post? » 10/29/14 6:48pm Wednesday 6:48pm

Just because only a few people called you out doesn't mean you're right. You're really looking bad here, especially when after 24 hours you've had the nerve to ask Scary Nicole to come a mutual understanding. She already explained how your offense, and you've twisting yourself in a pretzel trying to make it not an… » 10/29/14 4:56pm Wednesday 4:56pm

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 10/24/14 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 10/24/14 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 10/23/14 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 10/23/14 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 10/22/14 9:59pm
