If you haven't read about it or heard in the news then you have missed the fact that a woman accused two men of being sexist while they were privately joking amongst themselves. Afterwords she had reported their actions, not to the appropriate authorities there, but to the internet where she has a fandom base of 10,000 viewers. This of course had caused one of the two men to be immediately fired but she was also fired.

Groups lately have been split between siding with Adria while others are declaring this is a strike against men. Some have even pointed out that her actions bordered on the lines of blackmail.

The online group, Anonymous, has joined the argument and have begun an offensive campaign against Adria Richards. They have also pointed out some racist and sexist remarks that she has said before in her twitter post.

For more information please google, "Andria Richards" or view http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/donglegate-adria-richards

What is your opinion about this situation? Try to be as least sexually or racially biased as possible in your replies.

if you wanted any sympathy for your misogynistic little crusade here you probably shouldn't have mentioned that Anonymous is in on it

you also shouldn't have posted a Knowyourmeme link that undermines the narrative you're trying to sell

and you probably don't want to have a history of saying misogynistic fuckwitted things like

"Grow up. Get over it".. Very interesting words but I'm not speaking out against feminism simply because they are feminists but against the fact that there are other problems in this world that they overlook because of smaller issues. The black movement and feminist movement both want equality amongst races and sexes but just like any group there are the bad-apples amongst the group who have brought bad views of them by their out-spoken opinion. In the black movement there were groups of black individuals who were interested in war with whites and still are to this day with the "New Black Panthers" who were recorded recently wanting to start a war against whites. There are also feminists who seek not only equalization but subjetification of males to pay back all of the years men have subjectified them.

I do agree with this but how could you handle multiple small issues as well as large issues without there being losses in the mix? When large issues are mixed with smaller issues then some times they are over-looked or even passed over entirely. Focusing on the smaller issues in today's society isn't really going to help though because like stated there are men who are in power that just further those smaller issues. Women do have a good proportion of power though and to say that they submit to gain that power does not really support how they got into that situation.

Women in the media on the other hand cannot be minimized to the media of television. The internet has pretty much the widest media coverage in the world and men do not have power on something they cannot control. There is no internet censorship and so women are equally powerful online as men. Yet women are starting to influence it by actually speaking of ridding the internet of pornography in which case I'd agree with them. The internet is a tool in which we have taken for granted far too long.

Sorry but no amount of protests are going to suddenly make men stop being jackasses. No matter how much you teach them about respect and equality there is always going to be a jackass. Its not about sexism in how they treat a woman but rather their libido and unless you plan to lower the hormones in all men it might never change. This should not effect the overall male population. They claimed I hated feminism simply because they were feminist all because of the actions of fanatics. To hate men simply because of some jackasses would be the same then.

Yes there were also people who tried to claim that rape victims were "Asking for it" but that is smacked in their face as a "NOT AN EXCUSE". They teach that to everyone already that no matter how they dress it does not mean they are sluts or whores.

You can also claim I'm not properly acknowledging the problems in our culture but honestly I've given up on our culture as a whole. We have too many lazy, horrible, abusive people that sexism is over shadowed by all the problems we have.


and...whatever this is

@Shadowcell - I was asking for basic opinion about this this current situation and tried to be as least biased as I could. I noticed I had come across more towards the men's position but on the other hand I strongly do not agree with her actions.

Next time just make a single comment and move along. I had left this forum a while ago because of your jerk ass comments before and do not care to check your responses again.

This sounds like something that should be handled internally and not with the internet.

Which pertains to 90% of the things that happen on the internet.

You didn't ask for anything Del, you made an inexplicable PSA about a non-event that men's rights loonies are holding up as absolute proof of their terrible, terrible oppression.

And if you don't want jerk-ass comments, you need to either not post here, or communicate much better.

(Not being a schmuck would also help.)

Exactly. There is a large number of people who find it odd that she would rather go towards larger masses of strangers rather then the con officials who might had been able to handle the situation.

In my own opinion the way she described their conversation was not all descriptive and I do not believe she understood them in the right context. Even if she did then she could have handled it in a smarter sense rather then risking this public out-rage with people arguing all kinds of points of view.

Thank you for pointing that out. Apparently I had missed the last line that was trying to view opinions about the case.

I don't see how this is all her fault.

The fact that they all got fired (if that's even true) means they've already done something beforehand to the company. Companies don't just fire someone before warning them, no matter what they said. It's obvious that no one here is innocent and frankly it's embarassing to say that she is the only evil boogeyman where there's so much going on behind the scenes.

This whole thing reeks of miscommunication, vague descriptions and blatant witch hunting. If Anonymous thinks it's more important to after some women with a few loose facts than the people who hack the famous Cuban internet blogger for speaking her mind, then they're nothing but tools.

I wouldn't even be surprised if this whole thing was set up by a few trolls. The internet is way too easy to manipulate.

What the whole thing is is stupid decisions by every party and overreactions all around.

Wait, does that mean she also must have done something wrong previously? Because she got fired too.

Companies can, and will throw someone under a bus if they think they're a liability. Why would you think otherwise?
