When Giant Bomb chooses to not hire women, it has consequences. When the industry press does nothing while women are having their lives destroyed, it has consequences. I would suggest every man in this industry has a HELL of a lot of soul searching to do about the part they played in creating this situation.
I am not talking about the death threats here, but when it comes to the quality of dialogue I think that there is plenty some women could do to improve the situation. The accusatory, dismissive, extremely aggressive tone I often see from certain women in the industry have done very little to foster a quality discussion.
It's not a discussion though. It's a stall to maintain status quo. That's what tone policing is. The aggrieved after having something taken away is told to calmly explain why they should get it back. Women should be angry and forceful. That's how they make any progress in society.
