  • Comment on then and now for video games
    The whole thing has very little to do with gamer culture, it's just a massive example of how people (mostly young boys, but definitely not exclusively) act when they have anonymity and they see something they feel threatened by. There ARE perfectly legitimate criticisms of the claims of misogyny in gaming, but instead of listening to them people just say 'gamergate' as if that's a trump card. That isn't to say that the people spewing vitriol or threats shouldn't shut the hell up (or suffer legal action).

  • Comment on The Straw Feminist
    "were all feminists portrayed as irrational an manipulative…..and were all the men portrayed as rapists?" No to both. Most people that regard themselves as feminists never openly declare it, and the definition of 'feminist' varies widely. Using some common definitions, the vast majority of characters in the show were feminists.
  • Comment on The Straw Feminist
    Wait... in Veronica Mars there were men depicted as rapists, and feminists depicted as being irrational and manipulative, but the problem with that show is how it portrays the feminists? Yeah, you must hate it when the group YOU belong to isn't depicted as being perfect.
  • Comment on NESFW post display change
    The change is fine, but reducing the number of double and triple-posted NSFW entries would be a bigger improvement.
