@wrighteous86: So I guess the objectification and murder of millions of male characters in games and movies means nothing. or that Jack Thompson also received death threats or that Anita Sarkessian handles death threats by giving what her would be attackers want. She should call the police not twitter. Her reactions fuel her message. It's completely inappropriate for real imminent danger
The objectification and murder of millions of male characters in games and movies means nothing when discussing actual bomb and gun massacre threats in the real world, no.
And where did I say anything about how it was ok for Jack Thompson to be attacked?
Anita Sarkeesian was going to go through with the talk, not giving them what they want, but the security wouldn't comply with her safety concerns. She did call the police and talk with them and campus security. Did you even read the story? Also, her increasing the visibility of these threats may give the specific trolls what they want, but in the long run will help push this violence and aggression against women further to the fringes of the culture, and allows other women who are victims to speak out about their experiences as well. So "shut up and get over it" may be your opinion, but she has the right to speak out about it if she wants.
Is this what I get for NOT accusing you of being a men's right activist? But continue to construct straw men to battle so you can avoid the fact that you think her speaking out about issues in gaming is as important as her life and the lives of women and students on that campus.
