After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

This is terrifying

Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.

There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.

Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.

We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.

violence against women is not perpetrated by the mentally ill; it is perpetrated by men who have been culturally coddled by a society that has yet to bear responsibility for neglecting to teach them that they are not owed one damned thing on god’s green earth from women.

it’s interesting how there’s a stereotype of hating men as a prerequisite for queer women but hating women isn’t a prequisite for queer men when all the queer men i have interacted with hate women way more than the queer women i’ve interacted with hate men

The fact that he was never actually outright “rejected” and simply expected girls to just come to him wanting to fuck him makes this even more pathetic.

even more scary too, knowing sickos like these might silently build up anger towards you without you ever doing anything to them or even noticing them

It terrifies me to think of someone becoming enraged just because I, as a woman, exist in his vicinity and am not paying attention to him. The manifesto was rife with examples of times he was sitting in silence and begrudging all the women around him for not throwing themselves at the lonely quiet dude sitting in the corner staring daggers at him. There was one point where he said he was sitting in the cafeteria, not talking to anyone. He said something like, “I didn’t go up to any women because I knew they would reject me. Women are so cruel.”
He didn’t give women an active chance to reject him. They would have been completely justified in doing so, but he didn’t. He didn’t even approach women. He felt like he deserved sex just for existing.
So yeah, no, he wasn’t “rejected by women.” He felt entitled to women despite putting no effort whatsoever (beyond driving a nice car and having nice clothes) into meeting a real human woman.

Yup. I kept waiting to get to the actual rejection in his manifesto and it just isn’t there.

Lindsay Lohan has starred in more than 27 movies, appeared in 8 different TV-shows, hosted Saturday Night Live five times, been nominated for 44 awards and won 22 of them. What has Perez done in his years of “fame”? Talked shit about celebrities online.

This is Stephen King tweeting that Dylan Farrow’s New York Times essay about the sexual abuse she suffered at age seven by her adopted father Woody Allen had “an element of palpable bitchery.” 
Just in case you never want to read anything by the fucker again.

So now women who are sexually abused as children by a trusted father figure have to be nice and polite when they talk about the trauma? I’m gonna be blunt here. I know King has a lot of fans. I’ve often found him to be an insufferable misogynist. This crosses the line even further. Done with this asshole and everything he’s ever written.

"

Feminists have always been accused of hating men because it is a very effective way of silencing a very threatening movement. In a society where women’s value is based on our ability to please men, and where men hold almost all the cards, the worst possible thing we can do is hate them. So when feminists point out and object to the oppression, abuse and discrimination perpetuated by men against women, this is framed as man hating in an attempt to silence us, in an attempt to ensure that we are vilified and ignored by the rest of society, so that male oppression of women and male privilege can continue unchecked.

No matter how we frame our arguments and no matter what kind of image we seek to project, as long as we highlight, object to and fight misogyny, feminists are going to be called man haters.

So I’m not going to waste my time trying to prove that I’m not.
