David Futrelle shares with us four absurd rationalizations about the threats against Anita Sarkeesian.
One boils down to: “Hey men are fucked up because of feminism so women should THANK US for giving fucked up men a safe space where they won’t be killing women all the time. Gaming is one of those safe spaces – or was, until women started trying to shove their whorey way in. So watch out because if they don’t stop it’s going to get bloody!”
As many commenters pointed out, men actually seem to have an abundance of safe spaces.
Another said that another Marc Lépine would be…a terrible thing for men.
But the best one said it was those god damn English majors.
Because only English majors know deeply arcane and hidden things like not saying “by informing you who she will be speaking” and how to spell “separate” and that you DON’T use the possessive apostrophe in its. To everyone else that kind of thing is as occult as physics or risotto.
There are also a lot of funny comments on Futrelle’s post. Like this one:
At some point, someone “proved” that Brianna Wu sent herself the threats she received, because both of them used periods at the end of sentences.
