onemorepelican: I feel like you ought to be the official representative of Feminist Bald Eagles at this point. Another line for your resume.

rootbeerflotsam answered:

I want a damn embroidered patch that says Feminist Bald Eagle with a bad ass design that I will put on my cool guy jacket.

I know there are a ton of good artists following me. Who wants to design said patch?

Something like what the DEA has, you know?

So I’m moving into a new apartment, and I was told that the room had been damaged, but nothing could have prepared me for the fact that someone had carved Li Shang’s head out of the bathroom door and written “We must defeat the Huns!” on it.

"Game Journalism Ethics"

rootbeerflotsam:

To counter the notion that the Zoe Quinn situation has anything to do with people being mad about the porous nature of video game reviewing—seriously, you need to stop.

The people compelled to make threats are not mad that they were gulled into liking a thing that they wouldn’t have liked otherwise. Or even knowing about a thing that they wouldn’t have otherwise. This is not about ethics in video gaming. If it were, you’d understand that harassment and threats are WAY more unethical than any supposed quid pro quo in reviews.

So here’s what they’re really mad about:

  1. They think women supposedly have some ‘pelvic wizardy’ that elevates them and their work ahead of actual merit. “Pussy before quality, yafeelme?” 
  2. So said dudes are mad that they themselves don’t get equal ‘awesome dick’ privileges and can’t “fuck their way to the top.”
  3. And also they are mad they themselves do not hold enough power to dole out fuck favors which would make them desirable in the the first place.

The patriarchy is a poisoned chalice, sons, and the quicker you learn that the better you will be for it, emotionally, spiritually, and yes sexually.

Stone truth—about a 100 (1000? one meeeeelion?) times more women have been sexually harassed out of nerd culture than have ever sexually climbed to the top of the mountain.

Final thought—I’ve been with the same person for 19 years now. When I found out the jilted ex dude who outed her had been with her for what, 6 months?, my initial thought was surely that was a typo or a joke. I’ve taken naps longer than 6 months.

darkcityfourthstreet: Shannon please, don't fall into the Zoe drama.

rootbeerflotsam answered:

Look, I’m not famous enough to attract negative attention too much for stating my opinions, nor am I famous enough to budge too many people’s views either. But I will say that other men not standing up when bro-dudes are being shitty is part of the problem with so many subcultures I’m part of. It needs to stop.

I don’t know Zoe Quinn, I’ve never played a game she’s made, I don’t  give a shit about what her supposed (total bullshit, btw) private and professional transgressions are. NOTHING could ever justify the amount of harassment she’s enduring.  That an immature person couldn’t handle his fee-fees without turning to the internet and launching this campaign gets me REALLY MAD. This coupled with the Anita Sarkeesian harassment in the SAME GODDAMN WEEK has me even MADDER. Coming hot off the heels of Ferguson, I am just about ready to hand in my straight white guy card.

I don’t, though, because renouncing my privilege doesn’t help anyone. Staying quiet doesn’t help anyone. Sometimes standing up for justice means you have to endure some lack of popularity. I don’t look to stick my nose where is doesn’t belong very often. But this is bigger than ‘drama.’ This is about addressing a subculture that in many quarters is filled with pain and fear and sickness in its heart. Nothing will get better without that being confronted with clear eyes.
