Anita Sarkeesians ‘MASSACRE’ threats, real, or FAKE?

Let me get this straight

thespectacularspider-girl:

You are going up against gamers.  People who are programmed to win, to grind and slog for months for a prize, who can put up with the most horrendous insults being thrown at them.

And your plan is to try slander and outlast these people?

"Bayonetta is such a fantastic lead character that the ride is enjoyable regardless. She exudes confidence with a commanding authority, sure her clothes often disappear and there is the occasional close up of her crotch or breasts but it happens for a reason. Bayonetta is not only completely satisfied with who she is, she flaunts it in such an empowering way, using sexuality to humiliate her enemies and flipping the script on what we usually see. Every single moment, Bayonetta is in total control, never following the whims of anyone else or seeking approval."

So I didn't need this

Today I get home from class. And I hear that gamergate is getting shit on. I leave for work knowing that people are trying to pin a school shooting threat on gamergate.

I get home to see #stopgamergate2014 trending on twitter. I see people trying to exploit every possible thing they can to bring…

Good message from a delightful young woman that you should follow

Polygon bumps Bayonetta 2 to a 7.5 for being “sexist” And people ask me why gamergate exists.

wubzy111 asked: I'm glad someone else feels the same way about that stupid Batgirl thing. It was cool when characters were allowed to be diverse because it was interesting, not because the company wants to pander to a demographic eh? Although I must admit, I really really liked the new Batgirl issue, all hipsterness aside, having gail simone gone and Cameron Stewart on writing makes all the difference in the world, literally one of the only DC books I care about right now

thespectacularspider-girl:

I haven’t read Batgirl, tbh.  I’ve been out of comics for a while due to money issues.

nothing wrong with that, they’ve honestly been pretty shitty. Almost everything at DC is garbage, except for like Earth 2 and Multiversity. I don’t read much marvel, I skulk around the Spider-Man and Hulk books and don’t venture out into the crossover wilderness. I read a lot of old comics, not so much pc garbage to deal with. 

Now that writer-turned-preacher Gail Simone has left, maybe I can finally start reading Batgirl again.
