Men had no problem violating women’s bodies while they had on corsets, petticoats and farthingales, so what the fuck makes you think a short skirt has anything to do with it? 

Men also have no problem violating women’s bodies while they wear a niqab, hijab and burqa, some of the most covered form of clothing. So basically, what the fuck makes you think clothes have anything to do with it?

Super relevant.

Every single Gamergate article on the internet has been Astroturfed.

Explained by Wired reader in response to reader reacting to the astroturfers’ claims that this article is poorly sourced:


It’s very obvious what’s going on. The critics of these types of articles never say “Specific Fact X is wrong, here’s a link to a reputable source that proves this.” 

Instead, they make vague comments about how the article is poorly sourced (but don’t say why) and how journalism today is unethical (without even a single specific example) and how they’ll NEVER READ YOUR SITE AGAIN (tm), and maybe, like Devin Baker up there, list some generic how-to tips that have no real connection with the issue.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s effective. Plenty of people skim comments, they see 80% of them saying the same thing with the same rhetoric, and in their mind they think there’s a consensus. 

Sad that for people like you, the appearance of truth becomes more important than the actual truth.

"This is fucking bullshit.

S.C. has determined that not only does castle doctrine (the right to defend your home from attackers) does not apply to those attacked by others who live there as well, but Stand Your Ground (no duty to retreat anywhere you have a right to be) does not apply to those countering attacks from inside the home.

Tl, dr: the two main pillars of self-defense law effectively don’t apply to victims of domestic violence.

(Mild rebuke to think progress for using Marissa Alexander as an example. Her case didn’t qualify as SYG. It was however an example of bullshit mandatory sentencing)”

Well said, sir!

So let me come right out and say it.

Fuck you, GamerGate. Fuck you false idealism, fuck your manifesto, fuck your bullshit tactics.

GamerGate is not about journalism, this is about a bunch of assholes trying to get off on dominating others they feel are weaker. GamerGate is about putting people in their place.

So fuck you, fuck your shitty little ‘movement’ and fuck your tactics. I will protect people from you and work against you, not because you target women, but because you target people, and no one should have to suffer through your kind of bullshit.
