I read this today and was thinking about all of this.

An interesting read. It's always a good idea to take your opinions out and poke them with a stick. An unexamined life and all that.

I wanted to share these videos with Em for her research project, but I figured they might be interesting to some of the rest of you too, and they fit in this thread's topic, so here ya go!

Online Harassment, What Drives it and How it Lowers Visions is a series of three 10-15 minute talks by Anita Sarkeesian, Kate Miltner and Laurie Penny at Media Evolution: The Conference. They're really interesting videos, and if you, like, use the internet, I think they're worth listening to. tongue.gif

Good videos! Right after I finished watching them I found this great satirical story about "male gamers":

I feel this episode of My Little Pony uses those stereotypes and cliched tropes in a creative new way.

The newest Tropes video is up! This one is Ms. Male Character, but she also addresses the related "Smurfette Principle" and something she calls “Personality Female Syndrome”, which is where a female character's defining characteristic is her gender.

I was just wondering when another of these would go up. I'm sad that they take so long to make.

It took so long to make because they were researching things they are going to use for future videos. They might be releasing them more frequently now if that is the case. But this video pointed out a lot of things my favorite vampire game does wrong that I hadn't thought about.

I've only heard rumor about it but i guess the backlash against her from terrible people has gotten so bad she was driven from her home. The irony is that these assholes are only making her case against them stronger. I have no idea what is going through these dudes' heads, seriously.

Probably not too many thoughts other than 'Remember to breathe'.

Unfortunately, I can't kick the collective internet trolls in the junk, no matter how much they need it.

Good article I read the other day.

"What the Proud Gamers looking to defend gaming culture (and hence, their sense of identity) from external threats like Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn fail to understand is that they are not external threats, but internal revolutionaries."
