the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
you dont need vaccines, I havent had any and Im still doing great
wow, what a compelling argument. you’ve got me
in other news, i am still alive therefore death must be a myth
- as you may or may not have known, this guy and @ScrewPain were the guys responsible for swatting the creatures. this caused a shut down of schools, leak of personal information and innocent people almost got hurt because of it.
- in this time, i’ve kept an eye on spiky’s twitter and he’s swatted several innocent streamers [he posts proof and gloats about it] and plans to keep doing it. he and pain both think they’re invincible and it needs to stop.
- pain said he’s going to pax and im seriously worried he’ll swat that place too, so i just want to post a warning to everyone.
- i know that he is 100% serious who knows what other youtuber or innocent streamer they’ll do it to next.
EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE ROOSTERTEETH, SPREAD THE WORD. PEOPLE CAN BE HURT OR KILLED BECAUSE OF THIS.
ATTENTION ALL CONFUSED PEOPLE
- Swatting: A new trend where a Twitch player or Livestreamer is targeted and reported to the police for being a threat. The intention is to watch the Livestreamer or Twitch player be arrested live on camera.
- If you see anyone bragging that they are the culprits behind a ‘swatting’, report them immediately. Especially to the authorities.
ROOSTER TEETH HAS BEEN INFORMED THAT A THREAT HAS BEEN MADE. THEY HAVE TAKEN PRECAUTIONS. DO NOT CONTACT ROOSTER TEETH ABOUT THIS. THEY KNOW.

I’ve never been this damn happy in my entire life
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND THIS FOR SEVEN YEARS
DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS TO ?????
I’m fucking dying
“White knighting” is a pejorative term bigots use to undermine such actions from men who are using their voices for support, not for condemnation and misogyny. Bigots use it to claim men are supporting women in the hopes of sleeping with women. Because, apparently, that’s the only reason you would ever want to treat someone as a person.
It’s the same reason why a lot of women won’t speak out when they’re harassed, groped and abused: the onslaught of misogynistic “get in your place below me, bitch” is overwhelming not only in its strength, but its anonymity and lack of accountability. Places like Twitter and Tumblr and online communities sit on their hands and do next to nothing to stop this kind of violence.
I’ve seen comments saying that Anita receiving online abuse doesn’t mean her arguments are correct. Well, is anyone really saying that her video game analyses are 100% correct? Or are they saying “hey maybe the fact that someone speaks up about a serious issue is being threatened with rape and death and having their personal details spread around says that there’s a very real problem with the attitude towards women in our society, and the way that companies like Twitter do jack shit to combat it?”
People derailing the argument with “but men also suffer from violence” (true, and I’d like the see someone objective analysis of this that doesn’t involve shitting on female-targeted violence AGAIN, and we are all capable of seeing multiple problems that don’t have to claw the eyes out of each other to be valid) and “it’s just words” and “it’s a publicity stunt” need to go sit in the corner and engage some logic circuits for a change.
Not to mention that even when male-written articles are just flat-out fucking wrong, it’s not common for them to be responded to with this amount of vitriol. Thank you for posting about this, protowilson.
Even though I find Anita’s analysis of games to be incorrect (despite there being a goddamn goldmine of evidence for sexism in gaming, I can see from her effort that she’s approaching it from academia, which still doesn’t understand how to approach gaming), I don’t see why rape, death threats, and anti-feminist commentary are the responses.
This shit doesn’t happen to men this frequently*, yet it’s considered common place and acceptable. If you disagree with Anita, just fucking say why. You shouldn’t be covering for people who are sending her death/rape threats and urging her to kill herself.
Cause, just throwing it out there, but the people responding to her like that? They aren’t doing it because they carefully analyzed her videos and disagreed. They’re doing it because “GET TEH WOMENZ OUT OF VIDYA GAEMS AND BACK IN TEH KITCHEN”. The instant that people run to defend THAT group is the instant that you show just how severe the goddamn problem is. Who cares how wrong she is; fucking critically analyze it.
*Yes it does happen to men, yes men receive death threats when they’re wrong, yes men receive rape threats, but no it does not happen to the extent that it happens to women, and it IS NOT COMPARABLE
I was going to say that it’s as if some people don’t understand how to have a discussion, and then I realised that some people don’t even want that. They just go straight to the abuse because that’s their tried and tested and proved method for shutting down dialogue.
I’ve not watched any of Anita videos, but I’ve seen the criticism of them (cherry picking etc), which may very well be true - I couldn’t personally comment. But you know, it’s possible to criticise the cherry picking without resorting to calling someone a slut, c*nt or whore, sending rape and death threats, or invalidating their whole argument. To do so is the equivalent of a violent, untrained child pitching an almighty tantrum fit because someone didn’t give them enough lollies and now “EVERYONE WHO EVEN LOOKED AT ME FUNNY WILL PAY”.
I don’t understand how acknowledging violence issues in media has to be a pissing contest in who has it worse. Chronic female-targeted violence is an issue, depictions of masculinity are an issue, transgender violence and ignorance are an issue, any rape is an issue. There are a number of issues that need to be addressed and resolved. A person focussing on one does not invalidate the seriousness of the others. Can’t we all just work our way to stop being colossal assholes to each other for 5 damn minutes?
Okay so the Colbert Report posted a link to the Ellen Page interview, right
