She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

The people who say that there’s no sexism in gaming; do they ever wonder why “trolls” consistently target people who point out sexism and take it to these extremes or is the whole thing just random chance to them every single time?

Wow. I watched this video a few months back, and I had no idea this had happened. I ultimately stopped being an active online gamer due to the harassment. Getting a message saying “hey whore” every time I logged onto PSN. Or being told a variety of sexually explicit things while playing online… it’s exhausting. Poor girl.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

I knew [In The Flesh] was a beautiful, beautiful, original script. Beautifully written and it was very original and different from anything else., I knew that. But I didn’t quite expect the following it would gain around the world and stuff. That’s totally mad and really exciting.

YES WENDY. [x]

He is a rude and disrespectful person and is being given very little press attention for his atrocious behaviour. Whereas Miley is being blasted by EVERYONE for her artistic choices.

This

Hes not disrespectful he saved life’s thanks to all the haters he could be quitting music. The media is trying to tear him apart.. Look he was only 13 when he got signed. Hes been through a lot just respect that. Hes saving life’s right now and every second of the day. Yeah he can say things but he doesn’t mean them. 

Reasons why Justin Bieber is a disrespectful jerk:

  1. he said rape happens for a reason
  2. he wrote in a guest book at Anne Frank’s house that he ‘wishes she was a Belieber’
  3. he gagged and spat out a vegan steak that had been specially ordered for him
  4. he makes his fans pay tons of money to see him live, when he could easily afford tickets to be priced at like $40 instead of $100+
  5. he visited a children’s hospital in England and made them clear a space for him because he didn’t want to sit with the sick children. He stayed for 5 minutes while the cameras were rolling, then left without so much as a ‘thank you’
  6. he attacked a photographer at said hospital
  7. he peed in a restaurent kitchen
  8. he faked a really bad asthma attack, made his security guards call the paramedics, when they arrived he laughed his ass off and his people payed everyone to keep quiet about it
  9. he called a car to take him to the mall, then sent it back because he didn’t like the colour. he went to the mall and stayed for 5 minutes before leaving and saying it was the shittest mall he’d ever been to
  10. he got banned from Disneyland for punching Goofy
  11. he showed up to his own concert 2 hours late on a school night and then refused to give an explanation
  12. he is quoted as screaming ‘fuck bill clinton’ and attacking a cameraman, who is suing
  13. his mother is quoted as saying she ‘hopes he’ll mature soon’
  14. he spat on an old man’s face
  15. he threw a temper tantrum in a theatre because he was told he couldn’t bring his subway sandwich in because it was against the rules. he made a huge mess of the theatre and had to be carried out by bodyguards kicking and screaming that they were all worthless monkeys
  16. he showed up at disney unanounced and demanded that an entire restaurent be cleared so he could eat there, although people had had their reservations booked for months.
  17. he laughed at and told a woman in a bikini at a hotel swimming pool that she looked like a beached whale

there’s no point in trying to defend him, his actions are disrespectful and wrong and there are no excuses for them

reblogging again bc this^

whose lives are being saved by Beiber seriously?

also, for the argument that he was 13 when he was signed and that he’s acting out because “he never got a childhood”… Daniel Radcliffe was in Harry Potter, one of the biggest movie series ever, and he was 12 when the first movie came out. You don’t see him, Rupert Grint, or Emma Watson doing stupid shit like this.
