I had a day off this weekend from shooting Supernatural, and I was walking around downtown Vancouver on Saturday, sampling all the artisan coffee I could get my throat around. At one point I saw a pair of guys walking towards me wearing gamer shirts. Black short-sleeved, one Halo and one Call of...“I have allowed a handful of anonymous people censor me“
Meanwhile, feminists literally censored GTA:V in Australia, and literally censored the alternative, optional cover for a Batgirl comic.
You react to imagined threats; your group, ever claiming it is helpless and oppressed, acts to stifle the speech of others.
You claim that gamers threaten you. Well, BULLSHIT. I get threats all the time, and I have almost no footprint. I barely exist on the internet - and feminists claim they’ll track me down and do bad things to my tired old body.
And yet, I remain.
I’ve seen threats and harassment result in my friends losing their jobs. I’ve seen doxing, accounts hacked, objects like knives sent through the post.
Erin Pizzey had to fucking flee the country.
The police assessed the threats against her and her family as genuine.
All she did was try to set up a domestic violence shelter for men. That was seen as antifeminist.
She didn’t give up. She kept fighting. She is STILL HERE.
You fled? Because you might be targeted?
You fucking coward.
“Don’t let other people drive you away from gaming. “
I won’t - no matter what you fascist book-burning bastards do, I’ll keep fighting.
No hyperbole used there, either.
Ms Sommers gets threatened all the time by feminists.
SHE IS STILL HERE.
“ causing fear and pushing people away from gaming is not the way to go about doing it“
It’s a bit late, sunshine, your beloved Sisterhood has been spreading panic about games ever since they came out. Feminists have claimed, over and over, that games cause violence - yet can never seem to find any facts to support it. Just feelz.
Well, “Listen and Believe” might be good enough for your pack of hysterics, but the rest of the world prefers calm logic and soberly examined evidence. It doesn’t matter how crippling your self-diagnosed neuroses are, if you are incapable of dealing with such things, you don’t get to control them.
“they’re just going to make someone cross the street away from you“
Because of fear-mongering. Exactly as the National Socialists did with Jews, as the KKK did with blacks, as every bloody bigoted movement has done since the dawn of time.
They create a threat narrative.
They whip up the mob with stories of victimisation. That gives them the justification for violence.
“Listen and Believe”. She points. He dies.
